We find that bill - 34"fequlrcs that
every Instrurqentvln, order to bo re-
corded mhstlittve an affidavit attached,
sworn to by the party or parlies execute

1. That the consideration In tho

nmotiln to be paid for the same.
2d. Where the consideration Is
nominal, an affidavit must be attached
Stntl-i,t the full value.
Your committee fall to sec any good
that' will bo accomplished by this law.
' Where considerations are nominal w
find ' the Registrar often requires th
parti: to take oath as to the tnie value
' before the Instrument Is recorded.
If for taxation, the value' can easily
be not by tho adjoining properties.
Wo consider that It will only make
documents more complicated by at
taching nn affidavit to each ,onc nnd
therefore recommend tho bill be laid
on the table.

We have carefully considered 'bill 38
which provides for typewriting ma
chined In the Registry office.
While It -would expedite the work of
the office In sBme ways and perhaps re
duce the number of clerks, still the
recoid would have to be taken on
ecperute folios until ready to be bound
Into a book and wo doubt If the
records would be as safe as wh'ere these

More Porto Ricans
Come to Hawaii
Santa Monla, March 14. Two trains
hoaring 545 Porto Ricans went through
Los Angeles county?' on the Southern
Pacltlv Railroad, last 'night under rover
of darkness, and by daylight this
moralLg the voyagers were all aboard
the rttamcr Zcalandla at Port Los An
geles. A little later the ship sailed for
Honolulu. The railroad officials main
tain.'d the greatest secrecy as to the
movements of the special trains bear
ing tho Islanders.. The work of get
'ting the travelers aboard the steamer
was executed with dispatch. Euergetla
RgonU flew about the wharf and spur
red on the laggards.
Generally the voyagers, who arc now
out bolt a day on the Pacific, arn Ill-
conditioned. Their faces, both those
of the old and young, are thin nnd
pinched as If by long hunger. They do
not look. strong, but It was said that a
few days more of Rood food and plenty
of It will work great Improvement In
A bteamshlp man who appeared to be
tam'llar with the conditions with
which the Porto RteanB are going In
the new country, said that their con
tract rrqulres that every plantation
when they settle must have a school
for hildrcn and must be provided with
medlc.il attendance and church prsvl
leges. After discharging her passen
gers, the Zealandla will return to Saa
Sin Francisco, March 8. As a final
effort to locate the lost wreck of the
steamer Rio, the Pacific Mall Steam
ship Company yesterday offered a ro
ward of 1000to the person or persons
rfaAnltolv lrwinHm- tlia U'riwlr tn ttiA
-satisfaction of the company, This la
done because It Is practically certain
that, If Bhu lies In shallow water)
enousli for diving operations, much of
the valuable cargo can be saved. Thsi
raw 1.11k would not be spoiled for man-1
ufactunng purposes, provided that af-j
ter being taken out of the water It were I
kept wet until handed over to thai
manufacturer. The matting. It care-'
fully dried, would deteriorate little In
value. The tea, or at least such part
as Is packed In lead, would probably be
uninjured, and the water would nqt
spoil mmc of the general merchandise.
This offer throws open tho search to
the general public, and tho company
anticipates that many boats of all'dti
scrlptlons will be out th the next fffJ
da'3. Tholr own boats, which have
searched continuously since tho wreck,
will be taken oft,

(hnt the attending physicians under
stood that the end could not be far off
nnd all the bulletins sent out from the
sick loom were to this effect, so that
the family and friends were prepared
when the final blow came. The gradual
falling of the remarkable strength
shown by the patient, became more no
ticeable In the afternoon, and a few
moments before the end there was an
apparent breakdown on the part of
the nifferer as he surrendered to the
dlseaze, against which he had been
bravily battling for so many hours.
The change was noticed by the physi
cians, and tho relatives and friends who
had retired from the sick room to the
library below were quickly summoned
and reached the bedside of the General
before he. passed away.
Neva of the death 'spread quickly.
Word was flashed from bulletin boards
ot the newspapers and was thus com
