Tho Legislature will make nn unfor

Hawaiian language the standard tongue 1
of our public schools. It would lie
(qually unfoitunato to divide the
schools on tbo Hawaiian ami English
speaking lines. Progress In education

conditions. Is icitaln to be more rapid

Taking up Hawaiian language as 11 spe

out of place. To give It precedence over
thc English language means to plain

FOR CHARTER COMMITTEE
Would Inject the System and Uniform
ity into the Matter of Construc
tion of Buildings in
A special meeting of the Master
Builders' Association wad held at tho
rooms of that organization In the Elite
building last night. The purpose of
the meeting was to hear n report of tho
committee on building laws. A volu
minous report wns rend and discussed
till late at night, nnd adopted. Copies
of the laws as recommended will be
given to both the Independent nnd Ho
publican charter committees. The ac
tion was taken In thc first place nt tha
suggestion of thc Republican Charter
T. V. llenrdslce. one of the masti-r
builders, said this morning to a Hulk-
"We have. I think, framed a good si
of building laws for Honolulu. The
committee had before It thc laws of 11
dozen of thc leading cities on th
Mainland nnd has succeeded In culling
'from them the laws applicable to this
Place. If these are adopted by tho
charter committees nnd finally approv-
1 ed by the Legislature, good icsults will
follow. The committee, believes tho
I enforcement of the building laws
should rest with n building Inspector,
1 hacked up by n board of public works
I These men should be practical bull I.
"The most radical recommendation
we made Is for a law prohibiting it
' construction of buildings 11 1 more than
lone story without using studding of at
I least 2x4 dimension. This will do
I away with nny more single construc
tion shacks. It may look like a slap .U
the Chinese but It Is a regulation for
the good nnd the safety of the city.
"The recommendations also cover
such subjects as walls, fire proof build
ings, earthquake protection, founda
tions, street obstructions. Are escapes,
etc. Thc laws. If adopted, will prohi
bit projections Into the street from
upper stories nnd will do away with
monstrous board signs on the tops cf
"The long nnd short of It Is. that thc
committee has epitomized the building
laws of a dozen cities, producing regu
lations of thc most practical sort."

Independents Pay Visit
to Water Office
ANDREJV BROWN OPENS
IP THE HOUSE TO THEM
Many Important Details of Planned
Improvements Are Brought Out
The Independents now In caucus In
this city called at thc water works yes
terday afternoon for a talk with An
drew Hrown on water matters. Among
the principal questions asked and their
answers, were the following:
Is tho government going to lay wa-
lcr ,,pcg farther out Into Knllhl tlnu
at present?" "Yes."
"Is there sufficient piping In thc city
ut the present time?" "No."
"Are tho same rates being charge 1
now as In previous years?" "Yes, but
tho rates will bo decreased when tho
system In the city has been perfectej.
Tho rate, nt present Is $15. Wo may
get as low ns ?C n year."
"You say thcro Is a law In refcrcneo
to tho decreasing of the water rates.
Why hasn't there Uccn a decrease?"
ilSlmply because there has been a gre.it
shortage. of water."
Mr. Drown here went Into detail as to
plans whtchlie hud In mind for tho In
crease of tho water supply of the city.
Among other things ho stated that ar
rangements were now being made for r.
new pump to be put up close to tho cen
ter of tho city. This would cost In
the neighborhood of $10,000.
"How many pumps nre thcro In Ho
nolulu, whnt Is the capacity of each and
what Is thc price of the coal used?"
"There Is one pump un Ueretnnla street
and ono In Knllhl. The c.-vpaclty of tha .
first' Is 2.S0O.0OO gallons nnd of tho sec
ond, 5,500,000. The llrst consumis
three tons In twenty-four hours at tho
price of 111 per ton."
'Hno any pipes been laid to tho
places of tho people living about the
base, of Itount Top (Uwnlnkna)?" "Not
yet. That will como later."
"What do you calculato on for piping
and such material for tho next blcnnl.il
period?" "I think $120,000 will bo
Just here. Senntor Knlauokalanl
spoke of tho possibility of damming up
the Nuuanii stream and others nnd n!
turning tho water Into reservoirs. Mr.
Drown thought this nn excellent
scheme. It would cost nbout $150,000
to do tho work. In this mnnner, water
sufficient to last for six months could
be sturcd up during a dry spell, .Again,
tills new power could bo used to run tho
pumping plants so that nil tho expen
ses of coal would bo saved.
"What did tho government receive
In water rates during the Inst yeai ?"
"The sum wns JSO.000. Over 11.000 was
j taken In during tho month of Jnnunry.
I n.l(irn lflln .Innl.t tlint llin rnitlttl. will
luciense right along."
When asked for his report on tho
Water Works, Mr. Hrown hnnded tho
spokesman a copy. This pleased tho
natives Immensely nnd they promised
to look very carefully over tho field nnd
to grant nil necessary appropriation.
They then thanked Mr. Hrown for Mt
courtesy and departed.
When the weather moderates, tho Ii.
dependents arc going on a touf of In
spection of tho wnter system -city.
Lntcr on, they will go to tho In
snno asylum nnd then to the office of
tho noard of Education. Other de
partments will follow Inter.
