W, 0, SMITH'S ARGUMENTS
He Gives His Reasons for Favoring a
Proper Adjustment of Fire Claims Extension
of Fire Limits Id Cbimtown In-
corporation of Towns.
Hon. W. O. Smith having been
known to have ben In favor of n
special session ot the legislature, the
reports of the Governor's Council yes
terday which he nttended, eajing "the
general sense of the meeting wns
against It," naturally gave the Impres
sion that he had changed his views, or
at least had not taken strong ground
for the proposition.
On being seen this morning by a
Bulletin reporter, Mr. Smith was eager
to correct any such Impression. He
spoke to the following effect.
"Mr. Hatch nnd mjself have been
urging the desirability of n spt'lnl fcb
slon, nnd Governor Dole has been In fa
vor of It.
"The first reason I would itale for
the proposition Is the necelty of
propeily considering the claim? for
losses In the Chinatown fire It has
been boIiI that this Is n J10.O0O 000 mat
ter, but 1 think that a verj great ex
aggeration. There nie very few claims
that could prolnblj be maintained In
n court of law, jet It Is very tle-tlroblo
that conic compromise should be made.
I Many poor natives have lot their all
I for the public good, anil It would b a
severe hardship If the Legislature
should not nlford them some rellf.
'About six mouths have now elapsed
since the fire. To wait for th reg ilir
1 session In I'cbruary for the appoint
ment of n commission to mil 1st tho
claims would mean the lapse of three
je.irs between the event of the loses
and the report of a commission to tho
next regular session. In that long pe
riod much of the evidence would be
liable to be lost or nt least to grow
hazy, landmarks would be obliterated
and values chnnged.
"It would be Impossible, In the short
space of the special session, thoroughly
and equitably to adjust the elalrnr. A
commission will be necessary for thin
work, and one appointed nt the special
session could report to the regular ses
sion, when the money for settlement
would be appropriated.
"Another reason for a special tension
Is the great desirability of having the
fire limits extended before Chinatown
Is rebuilt. We do not want the ground
again covered with Inflammable shacks.
In the same connection. It Is Important
that the earliest action be taken on
houso connections with sewers. The
Hoard of Health regulations on this
matter ought to be confirmed by act of
"The third reason Is with regard to
municipal Incorporation. This Ik too
large a subject to be handled with tho
multiplicity of other matters which
must engage the first regular session nf
the Territorial Legislature. It is a mat
ter that can only be satisfactorily for
mulated by n commission. Dy appoint
ing a commission at the special session,
there would bo time for Its submission
ot a report at the regular session. Ak .
in the case of the lire claims two
jeais would thus be Raved. The al
ternative of lushing through n muni
cipal sjstem, in the same scslon as;
Initiatory action was taken, should not I

changing his mind, he was more

A special election nnd a special ses
sion of the Legislature would cost at
the lowest calculation something like
IW.000. The ipproprlntlon for elec
tions Is 115,000. It would be half used
up by n special election. Pnj of fifteen
Senators and thirty Representatives,
nt the allowance of $200 for a special
session of 30 dajs, would amount to
$9,000. Officers of the Legislature would
dinw from t'M to $800 Printing, sta
tionery nnd Incidentals would eat up at
least $2"U0 more.

state that all the Japanese strlkeis on
