lieves that whatever the ability of the
ltoad Uureau may be to follow up tho
work of the Ilapld Transit Company
with the repairing of the streets, It Is
the bounden obligation of the railway
company to complete tho repair of tho
street to the full width contemplated In
their franchise us they proceed, Your
committee recommends that the Super
intendent of Public Woiks be Instruct
cd to enforce compliance with this
clause of the comnany'c charter and
franchlce. The complain' of the iesn

pany has exceeded Its rights undei Its

of the franchise. The conditions In
Hotel street amply warrant the com
plaint i.nd your committee recommends
that the Supeilntendent of Public
Works bo Instructed to Insist on the
strict letter of the law In respect to
closing sieels, to tratllc. Your com
mittee would call uttntlcii to the
construction and recommend that they
be given close attention by the Public
Works Department and that It Insist
on strict compliance with all pro
visions of law.
During the discussion In the House
prfor to referring this resolution to
your Committee on Judiciary, the argu
ment was along lines Indicating a ne
glect on the part of some one to es
tablish road grades or street grades
so as to make the eim'nii of new
buildings and of any permanent Im
provements along the lines of streets
to conform with new street grades.
Your committee notes that the law es
tabllshlng grades through a commis
sion, was enacted In 1880. The entlro
grading was to be done hetween the
survey department and the Superinten
dent of Public Works. Taking Llllhu
street as an example, within the past
ten months, and long after the rights
of the Ilapld Transit Company to con
struct a railway line on Llllhu street
had been established, building permits
were granted along that street, and
construction permitted, where the floor
levels today are more than two feet
below the grade line established for
the llupld Tianslt Company's tracks
The question arises who Is to blame. It
Is another way of endeavoring to llx
responsibility under the present cen
tralized system of government. Your

Another feutuio of this lack of sys

I agree with the ro:ommendatlons
with which tho report of the commit
tee concludes. Uut I do not find that In
laying H8 tracks on Hotel street tho,
Iltiptd Transit Company has violated
the provision against obstructing moro
thnn one block at a time. The fnct that
tho surface of the street is bolovv tho
level of the tracks which are laid to tho
official grade Is not the fault of 'the
company. In regard to the company's
paying the government for macadam-
Ulng tho strip on each side of the
tracks required by law to be done by
the company. It appears that arrange
ments are now being made between
tho road burenu and the company
which will effect the result desired bj

Maknlnnl Introduced n report relative
to the extension of the fire limits The
committee stated that the mntter had
come up earlier In the session and that
they considered that the extension of
the lire limits wns onlv the extension
of the area for storing lumber.
"Since these facts relating to tho
storing of lumber, that Is that all lum
ber nt this time happens to he stored
within the area known as the flro lim
its, and having good reason to believe
that the extension of such lire limits
would only mean the extension of tho
lumber yard area of Honolulu, your
committee lecommends that the peti
tion be laid on the table."
Robertson said the vvJiolc report was
nothing hut n bluff and that It should
lie rejected, as there were at least three
lumber yntds at present omsldc of tho
Dickey went even further, stating
that the members had friends owning
land In the burned district which
brought In fatieturns from the Chinese
tenants. No one answered his charges.
The report wns tabled to bo con
sidered with Mnkalnal's bill removing
lumber yards outside the fire limits.
The Committee on Public Iinds re
ported on House bill 103, regulating
plumbing, etc. finding thnt the bill
aimed to bling cess pool building,
plumbing, etc.. on n scientific basis.
The committee stated that unless
some steps were taken the epidemic of
last year would be repeated. The
