nexation, and the incidentals will also
bo larger. We recommend the Item
pass as In the bill.
Item 373, State Entertainments and
Your committee finds that this Is an
Item which has seldom been drawn In
full. Should President McKlnley or
nny otlier government olflcjal, or any
fnretgp official, such as .the Duke of

could be used for such purposes. The

Sir: Your- Committee on the ollard

as follows: '
1. Item 532 General Expenses, $10.
000. Upon consultation with tbo Doard we
camo to the conclusion that the above

The expenses to be paid out of the
above appropriation t.re Advertising
and Printing, Incidentals, Stationary
and Postage, LaborntorySupplle, and
Durlol at Paupers and Morgue expen
ses. We also found that the exienscs
for advertising are continually Increas
ing with tho growth of the duties of
the Doard; the same way with the ex
penses for Incidentals.
u In regard to expenses for burial of
pauper I ana morgue, we-rounu out mat
tno nuir.ucr oi tiodlca winch nave to ic
burled at the expense of the Board is
Increasing greatly. 7
We therefore recommend that the
Item may bo passed at $13,000.
2. Item 633 Medicines for City Dis
The Idea of a former President of the
Doard wub that the government physi
cians In different districts should sup
ply drugs and. medicines, to bo used In
their respective districts out of their
own expenses; but tho Hoard Informed
your cofumlttco that they found It lm
practlcable;vand wc concur with tho
opinion of, tho Hoard In thnt matter;
wo believe It would bo Impossible for
tho government physicians to furnish

Wc therefore recommend that the
amount may bo passed ns follows:
Mcdlclm-i, $9,000, being tho same ns
Inserted In last Appropriation bill.
3. Horn 631 Support of Non-Lep.
rotia Children, $12,000.
Tho Hoard strongly urged your com
mittee to Increase tbo amount to $20,-
000 for the reason th'it tho Hoard be
lieves thnt a building fnr boys ought tu

, Wo thcrcforo recommend that the

and Hulldlng for Hoys. $20,000,
4. Item 635 Insane- Asylum, $34,-

f Through our conversation" with tho
members of tho Hoard, wo are satisfied
that tho above amount oan bo made to
lest out only with strictest economy on

tion. ' ' "" "
Wo therefore rccommoniT""thnt tho
amount be passed as In the bill.
5. Item 536 Segregation, Support
and Treatment of Lepers, $160,000,
Hy tho report of tho committee to
Kalaupapa, which was pdopted by both
houses, it was decided to Increaso tha
rations of pot from 21 pounds to 23
pounds per person a week; also lb
creases In other things were adopted;
and wo bcllovo wo also decided to
furnish tho Inmates with fuel free of
cbargo; the Hoard proposes to your
committee nn Increase of $10,000 In the
appropriation In order to meet said
expenses; your commlttco also found
that tho Kalaupapa commlttco pro
posed that tho management, etc., of the
Wallop Homo ought to bo hotter pro
vided with helpers and other things.
Your commlttco therefore recom
mends that tho Item mny bo passed at
It la true that tho treasury does not
warrant nn Increaso In tho Appropria
tion bill; but wo feel It Is our duty to
do all In our powor for tho benefit of
thoso unfortunate Inmntcs at Kalau
papa and Kalawao, Molokal.
6, Item 537 Kulaupapa Store, $15,
000. In regard to tha abovo amount wo
have no reason to change tho same,
and recommend that It may be passed
as In the bill.
1. Item 638 Maintenance of Gar
bage and Excavator Service, $24,000.
The Hoard urged your committee to
tncrearo the amount to f 2C.00O, but. we
believe thp Doard can run that depart
ment during tho next two years with
the strictest economy, for the amount
naked lu the bill; and wc claim It Is a
part of our duty to sac all we can for
We therefore recommend the amount
Hsked In the hill may be passed.
8. Item 339 Running Expenses of
Garbage Crematory, $7200.
The Hoard wants the above appro
priation changed to Superintendent of
Public Works, but we believe It will
only amount to more trouble on said'
officer as he has all he rould.att,ond to.
We recommend that the amount be
passed as In the bill.
9. Item 540 Honolulu Dispensary,
The Hoard believes that this Institu
tion could be run with only 1000 during
the next two years.
Wo therefore recommend the Item
be passed at YW.
10.. Item Btl Kolon Hospital. $1000.
This hospital Is not transferred to
trustees, and belongs to the govern
ment. Wo recommend that the Item may be
passed ns In tho bill. "
11. Items SI2 to 649 inclusive Sub
sidies to vnrlous hospitals. .
We ask that the above amounts may
be laid upon the table until we get an
opinion from tho Attorney Oeneral In
