-both foreign and Hawaiian 'born. Mr.
Chamberlain said ho knew nothing
about the Inducements that might havA
existed to make It desirable for Chi
nose to evade the census enumerator,
but he would be willing to1 bet his hat
that not fifty Chinese would be left
unregistered in tho Islands when the
books close tonight. He said that In
addition to tho systematic and pains
taking diligence of the department,
outside assistance had been rendered
which greatly i Increased the efficiency
of the registration. The Sugar Plan
ters' Committee, npnolnted for the
purpose, had rendered valuable assist
ance, Mr. Cooke .sent circular letters
to nil the managers of plantations
throughout tho Islands requesting them
to extend every facility to the depu
ties. This assistance was given, not
only with respect to tu? Chinese upon
plantations but to.all who lived In the
locality or district,
"The number of Chinese has overrun
our expectations on every island." said
Mr. Chamberlain, i "The excess has
not sbqwn up in any one locality.
Every deputy to outside districts made
nn estimate when he first began; his,
work and In each case, without ex
ception, the number of Chinese ex
ceeded tho estimates."'
The registration has been conducted
ivlth n iew to extending the benefits
of the privilege to every person en
titled to It. Children of mixed blood,
with Chinese parentage on either side
have been reglstered'and the number In
this class is quite latge Tho census
of U9C gives a total off 8185 under the
head "part Hawaiian." It Is more than
probable that a good percentage ot the
1000 excess comes from this source.

about forty Federal positions In the

lowing that preliminary formality ex

wilt be held.
"To this end, four exnmlnlng boards
ot three men each, will be appointed.
The chief of these local boards will bo
the one stationed In Honolulu, this to

be stationed In Hilo. The disposition
of the other two will be decided on
later. It Is possible that we may be
ablet o carry on tho work with a lesser
number than four.
"These examining boards will be per

will begin our work. It will be neces
