Attorney General Dole was given In
junctions In the Executive Council tu
day to begin suit against the Hawaiian
Tramways Co., for a cancellation of thu
franchise under which that compauy
now operates Its street car system In
Honolulu. The grounds on which the
petition for revoking tho franchise I
ordered, are that the company has
violated the terms,, of tho franchise It
self and that the same Is forfeited by
Its own provisions.
The matter was brought up by th
Superintendent of Public Works, He
stated that the orders of his depart
ment to the Tramways Company In
lower Its tracks In certain places tn
conform with tho street gardes had
been repeatedly Ignored. It Is also
claimed that the termB of tho fran
chise, requiring the company to keep
tho street In repair two feet on each
side of Its tracks,' has been persistently
Ignored and thnt'tho general character
of Its service to the'ptlbllc Is not up to
the standard set forth In the franchla.

discussion. Paele had looked up tho
matter and considered It a Just claim.
Makekau thought the High Sheriff
should havo presented the claim and
not Clerk Dow, nnd as this had not
been clone, he thought there was no
truth in the How report, anu moumii
thnt the House should adopt a resolu
tion ousting Mr, Dow from oince.
