Senate Resolution to Greet McKinley

Funny Proposals From
Th House convened this morning
anil made vigorous effort to rush
through some work before the Joint
House bill 93, relating to the settle
ment of the flro claims, came down
from the Senate, having passed third
reading! The bill, provides" for the
borrowing of f f,500,600 to be dlstrlbut
cd over a period' of three years.
House bill 84, relating to the fran.
rhlse of tho Standard Telephono com
puny, came p for third reading. The
bill passed after an attempt was made
to put It back on the calendar. Ayes

House bill 80, protecting soda water
dealers from having their bottles used
by other people, passed thltel reading.
House bill 36. relative to tho man
ngement of tho government sewers,
came upfor third reading. Mossman
objected to the bill., on the, grounds
that It was n hardship to the "poor
man." Kumalao suppoited the meas
ure, stating that It was unfair to make
'the outside districts pay for Honolulu
sewerage, neckley stated that th
rates quoted In the act, were the game,
ns those complied by "our gront and
good friend McCandlcss. ' He claimed
that the rates were too high, and de
manded that the bill be lndetlnteljr,
postponed unless the rates be reduced
one-half. Robertson stated that Beck
lcy'b objection was nothing but a bluff
mid that .his fight against bis "great
nnd good frtend" had got the better
of his Judgment. Bcckley "had quoted
the rotes on restaurants and had claim
ed that this was too high for the poor
man, clalmlng'that the rates were Jhe
same In either case. .Robertson said
this was false, nnd that the. member

Sir- The resolution of the House
requesting an extension of the present
legislative session for an additional
period bf thirty days, on the grounds of
unfinished .legislation, has'lieen recelv'
ed from your special committee.
The conduct of the present session by
the tho Legislature offers no jppenr
anee, so far, that such an extension
would tend to promote the Interests
of the Territory, but raises In my mind
strong doubtsto tho contrary.
1 have recently refused a request of
the Senate for an extension cf the ses
sion, such request being based upon
similar grounds to those expressed In
the House resolution, I find no'rcasnn
now for coming to n different conclu
sion. Very respectfully yours.

Loan Bill Turned
Into ChiVFor Dole
There hao been conhlderablo com
ment In the streets today over the fact
that, during Its session last eenlng
tho Houso studiously nvolded taking up
the Loan bill.' a measure which. It Is
conceded, must go through, or the ap
propriations to bo made by the Legls
latuie will go for nothing.
It Is learned on good authority that
the Loan bill of tho Senate was held
back on purpose In order to fashion
out of It a club to hold over Governor
Dole by way of forcing him to chnngo
his mind about extending the session.
This whole matter Is very forcibly
summed up In the following remark
of ono of the Independent representa
tives, this morning: "No extension;
no loan bill and no money, What can
Dolo do? If he wants to throw the
country Into chaos, let him do It, Wo
will hold the loan bill over his head
and see how ho Intends to squlim iut
of the hole."

Manila, April .19. Following Is Agul
nahlo's, address to the Klllplno people,
marie public this evening: ,
I believe I am not In error In pre
suming that the unhappy fate to which
my adverse fortune has led me is not a
surprise to those who have been fa
miliar with the progress of the war.
The lessons taught with a full mean
ing, nnd which have recently come to
my knowledge, suggest with Irresistible
force that n complete termination of
hostilities and lasting pence are not
only desirable but absolutely essential
to the welfare of the Philippine Islands.
' The Filipinos have never been dis
mayed at their weakness, nor have they
faltered In following the path pointed
out by their fortitude and courage. The
tlmo has come, however. In which they
find their advance along this path to
be Impeded by an Irresistible force
which, while It restrains them, yet en
lightens their minds' and, opens to.them
another course, presenting 111616" the
cause of peace. This cause has been
Joyfully embraced by the mnjorlty of
my fellow countrymen, who have nl--crdy
united around tho glorious sove
reign banner of the United States. In
Hon. Thomas Fitch csterday filed
his application for admission to prac
tice In tho courts of the Territory. He
states In his petition that he is a native
of Now York, a citizen of the United
States, sixty-three years of age, and
has been admitted to practice In tho
highest courts of California, Nevada.
Now York and Utah, and has been
slnco 18G9 a member of the Dar of the

CARTER INTRODUCES AN
Which is Immediately Choked 0ff
Before it Has Had Time to
Cool. Off Ottof
At this forenoon's session of the Sen
ate, Mr. Carter Introduced a resolution
which had for Its object the doing away
of the military club because he con
sidered It unbecoming the dignity of
tho Senate to hae delivery wagons
with liquor stopping in front of the
Senate doors. The Introducer said he
had heard carousing next door and.
while ho did this kind of thing himself
at times, he did not bcllcte It should bet
permitted on government property. Mr.
Carter went on to say that the whole
thing seemed to smack of undue In
fluence of the military over the Senate.
The resolution Just had time to take
a last, gasping breath when a vote was
taken nnd It was relegated to tho waste
basket there to repose In peace. Messis.
Carter and Knnuhn were the only ones
who oted In favor of the resolution.
Messrs. Ualdwln and Paris did not vote.
When the Senate met this forenoon,
the clerk rend several communca
tlons submitting bills passvd In third
reading. These were passed In first
reading and second rending set for
Monday. .One of the communications
was to the effect that the House rcsu
lutlon relating to the support or tin
military had' passed in the lower branch
on the 23d Inst. The resolution to
gether with the accompanying report,
was laid on the table by unanlmotii
vote. It being brought out during lb"
discussion that the arms and accoutre
ments of tho miliary are the propcrlY

Will TAX M
London, April' 18. The exceptional
Interest taken In this year's budget
statement wns evidenced by tho crow
ed condition of the House of Commons
when It reassembled today. Tho at
tendance of members was unusually
largo, while the appearance of the gal
leries testified to tho deep Interest of
tho public In the fresh taxation pro
posnls required to meet tho expenditure
for 1901-2, which, according to a Par
liamentary paper issued tms afternoon,
totals 187.002,000, Inclusive of the war
charges, thla being an Increase i of
32.901.000 for the year.
The national balance sheet for 1900
01, as shown by the same paper, stands
as follows: Revenue, 130,385.000:
expenditures, : 185,592,000; net deficit,
Tho proposal for a tax on sugar-Is
stated as follows:
"I propose a duty on refined sugnr of
4 shillings nnd 2 penco a hundred
weight. A half-penny per pound
would be 4 shillings and 8 pence, so a
margin ot 6 penco Is left to cover tho
customs, handling, etc. There Is, there
fore, no reason why a tax of 4 shillings
and 2 pence should Increase the retail
prlco more than hnlf a penny per
pound. The graduated scale of taxa
tion would bo as follows: Refined
sugar, which Is polarized nt 98 and
upward, which represents two-thirds
ot tho total Imports, would pay the run
tax. This will diminish to n minimum
of 2 shillings per hundredweight on
raw sugar polarized at 70. This scale
Is only tentatUo and I am perfectly
willing to listen to criticism ami the
ueneni or experience aim uuuvr niiuwi
