NECESSARY DETAILS FOR
ACTION ARE LACKING
Coinage Bill Incident Was Bad Blow
for Delegate Wilcox--Her-
mann Asks for a
Washington, Feb. 18. Innd Cora
mlssioncr Dinger Hermann has sub
mitted to tho Senate Committee on
Public Lands a report upon the bill In
troduced by Senator Sullivan providing
for extension of the land laws of tho
United States to tho Territory of Ha
wall. Commissioner Hermann In hid
lenort states that tho General Land
Oltlcc Is not In possession of (mindful
Informatlun-tQ determine the acreage
of lands In "Haw all yet unappropriated
and while he believes In the general
proposition of extending the laws of
the United States to Hawaii, no Intel
ligent recommendation can be nude
until data shall have been collected
through a commission authorized by
Congress to enlighten tho Land Offlc.-j
upon this subject.
The Commissioner states that he be
lleves the laws should be administered
through registers and receivers nnd
through the General Land Office, and
not through Territorial officers who
usually are not In touch with tho gen
era) spirit of our laws. He states that
he cannot favorably report on tho bill
Under consideration but recommeuds
legislation to provide for n commission.
While the House Committee on Elec
tion has voted Against proceeding ur-
ther against Delegate Wilcox and whl'
the latter will undoubtedly be permit
ted to retain his membership In the
56th and 57th Congresses, his value as
a representative of Hawaii Is at an end.
The character of tho correspondence
made public In which he exhibited his
willingness to aid In overthrowing the
United States Government, when that
government was In nil save name, tho
government of Hawaii, has convinced
the great majority of public men here
that Wilcox Is wholly unreliable and
untrustworthy. The friends of Hawaii
lu Washington arc losing hopo that fa
vorable legislation may be secured for
the Territory because the utter Incapa
city of Wilcox threatens at all times to
defeat such legislation. It Is conceded
that the Incorrect statement mado bv
Wilcox In the House that Hawaiian sil
ver circulated at a discount of three per
cent caused the defeat of tho Hawall'ia
recolnage bill when about to bo passed,
Had Wilcox been absent tho bill would
have gone through. Thero Is now no
opposition to tho mensure, but In tho
great rush of business Incident to tho
closing weeks of tho session tho frlcnls
of the measure fear that somo accident
may cause It to loso Its place and tht.u
fall to bo reached at this session.
The friends of Hawaii aro working
hard to secure tho passage at this scs
slon of the measures providing for crn
atlon of sub-ports of entry, redemption
of Hawaiian silver coinage, and the au
thorization to depcclt in government
depositories In Hawaii receipts from
customs, etc. All of theso measures
have passed the Senate and are on the
House calendar. With a representative
Nor Your Wife
Will be thoroughly satisfied
until you live In your own
Besides Its being less expen
sive, you will also stand higher
In the regard ol both your
neighbors and yourself.
We can help you to work
the plan out successfully.

Members Present Desires
to the Legislative
ALL COMPLAINTS AND
SUGGESTIONS LISTENED TO
Local Self Government an Important
in Every Detail
Owing to the delay In rounding up
the offended legislators who Indlg
nantly left the wharf vvhen denied ad
mlttanco to the steamer by .two stal
wart blue-coatca who guarded the gang
plank. It was, fenr midnight Friday
when the steamer W, G. Hall loosed
her lines and turned her prow seaward
to take the Joint committees of the
Sennte and House to Molokal to make
an Inspection of the leper settlement.
The staterooms having all been sclzod
by the earlier comers, the late arrivals
were furnished with mattresses anj
blankets and enjoyed what sleep they
could get on deck.
Besides the committee members nnd
other legislators, there were In the par
ty as favored visitors Justice Oalbralth
of the Supreme Court, Mr. Irwin, Dr.
C. A. Glover of San Francisco, Dr.
Chas. Francis Engels of Taroma, and a
full corps of locaj newspaper represen
tatives. At sunrise on Saturday morning the
Hall cast anchor oft Kalaupapa, and
In a short while tho party were all
landed, and Senator Kalauoklant ad
dressed the lepers assembled at the
landing, advising them of tho object of
the visit, and asking them to call a
mass meeting at Derctnnla Hall nt
once. The news was quickly spread
around, and at 9 o'clock tho hall was
packed with a crowd of eager, expel
ant looking sufferers, who were pleased
at the opportunity to thus meet tho
legislators face to face and present
their grievances, supposed or real,
without let ol- hindrance..
Before proceedings were begun the!
committee was divided Into two parts,
the first to sit in Bcretanla hall and
hear such complaints and representa
tions as might be presented, and the i
second to proceed at once to Kalawao
to afford tho settlers there the same
opportunity of being heard. Senator
Kalauokalanl presided over the Kalau
papa meeting, while Representative
Bcckley took charge of the Kalawao
A number of the lepers were heard
at each place, and tho different com
mitteemen propounded questions that
brought out n largo number of com
plaints and suggestions as to their rem
edy, etc. The petition setting form
twenty-ono prayers that had been sent
up to the Legislature was endorjed
paragraph by paragraph by tho as
sembled residents of tho settlement,
and many reasons offered why thoy
should be granted.
Tho petitions most emphasized and
That local self-government bo pro
vided for tho settlement.
That tho distribution at water be so
Increased as to make possible tho devo
tion of more land to taro planting.
That the Board of Health be prohi
bited from exacting a royalty of
twenty-five per cent of tho taro grown
by tho lepers.
That tho cloth nllowanro of ten dol
lars a year bo payable In cash at the
option of the beneficiary.
That each leper bo given monthly
ono-qunrtcr cord of wood for fuel.
That tho bringing of awa Into tho
settlement bo allowed.
That the taro planters bo required to
make palul and deliver It at Kalaup.r
That a court and necessary officer
thereto be established permanently at
That tho weight of pnlal bo Increas
ed from 21 to 25 pounds per bundle
That the bettlcmcnt bo provided with
first elnss articles of food.
That appeals bo allowed from the
trial court at Kalaupapa.
KananI nddresscd tho commlttco at
great length. According to this wit
ness, who was not put under ojtli, thn
authorities have not for a number of
years past provided the unfortunates
with meat fit to bo eaten; tho fresh beef
has been of tho poorest sort, tho salt
salmon bad, and tho tinned meats un
eatable. On ration days, so ho allege,
thero Is such crowding at tho supply
depot that tho weak nnd Infirm fare
badly; somo of tho favored ones get
choice cuts of ment, whllo others have
to content themselves with poi tlons
such as old Mother Hubbard Is said to
have sought for her dog: the pol has at

sioner reports registration was attend
ed to by the Collectors of Internal Rev
enue In tho various districts of tho Ter
ritory. It was found, however, that It
wns not practicable to commence such
registration until February 1, 1901, or
seven and one-half months after tho

Tho commissioner has been advised
that In this Interim It has been neces
sary for a considerable number of Chl

Tho Commissioner General suggests
that legislation bo had to extend for
