To.the Senate: ilavlng reiieatcdly called the attention of this
body to the fact that the short time accorded to the legislature Is
wasted In debate on trivial matters which are of no interest to the
people of this Territory while the iiassage of measures which were
promised by nil the political parties are tlelj)ed, that little or no
work Is being dona by the several committees as evidenced by failure
to promptly report; that, as a whole, the Senate. Is practically, an In
efficient body and that the short time remaining In which to perform
the responsible duties, with which we are entrusted will prove utterly
fruitless if present methods are coitinued.
In the name of alt the people and of all the parties who have en
rusted us with the high mission of state affairs, which Involves life,
Justice and property and, In general, the good ordr of society and
property of this young Territory, upon which. te people of the
whole-Union are looking with profound interest;) I pro'est against

With the constantly growing traffic
down low n the problem of congested
streets becomes more serious each
month The hit and miss character of
the original street plan of Honolulu
has been lamented lung and loud and
spasmodic efforts have been made to
remedy the evils, with more or Ic J suc
cess In spots.
Hotel street Is supposed to now bo
n wide street, hnving been Inflated at
certain points by moving back the
buildings. The Rapid Transit tracks
when laid on this thoroughfare, It is
figured, will leave six Inches of day
light between the passing trolley cars
and the brick walls on each side. It Is
a long way up Fort to Ileretanla and
expressions are frequently heard
among those who oc-aslonally think
for the good of the public, that Pauahl
street should be extended from Nutianu
through to Alnkea.
Tho new Fisher block Is going up on
Fort at the point where Pauahl would
intersect. If extended, and relief. If

J. A. McCandless of the Public Works
Department, when seen by a Dulletln
reporter, said that such an Improve
ment as tho opening of a street from
Fort to Alakca, between RereUnla nnd
Hotel, would certainly be a relief to
clxstlng conditions. "However." he
continued, "Pauahl street baa been or
dered opened from Nuuanu to Fort for
some time, and yet we have no street.
Tho government has not the money to
pay the damages asked by the owners
of condemned properly. Tho bill for
such'flamages between -Fort street and
Alakea would be, perhaps, even heav
"It docs not srem to be good policy,
cither," said Mr McCandless. "to go
Into the business ot opening new
streets, when those wo have already

ment." Mr Ilallantyno of the Rapid Transit
& Uuil Company, expressed himself In
favor of the extension of Pauahl street
as Inillcnted. -"The extension should
at least be made to Alakra. and I don't
know- but Hint It would bo a good thing
to extend It as far ns Union street. The
blocks In tbnt locality nre too large and
the streets nre altogether too narrow
for tho traffic. Congestion will bo
worse and worse as tlmo goes on.
"I think too," said Mr. Ilallantyno.
"tbnt lllshop street, which Mr. Young
will open ocross his lot In front of his
new building, between Hotel and Klnc

lumber yards and across Queen street
