KELIIKO INTRODUCES A
NEW JOINT RESOLUTION
Object to Being Annexed to, California
Nice Tribute 'to the Power of
The House expressed themselves
quite freely In regard to the question.
of annexing the Territory of Hawaii
to California this morning The de
bate was started by the introduction of
the following resolution by Kelllkoa!
Resolved, by tho House of Represen
tatives, the Senate concurring, that It
Is the sense of the Legislature of tho
Territory of Hawnll, thai tho annexa
tion of the Territory of Han-alt to tho
State of California Is contrary to the
rights of tho citizens and residents of
De It further resolved. That one copy
of this Concurrent Resolution may be
transmitted to tho President of the
. I'nlted States', One copy to the Presi
dent of tho Senate, one copy to the
Speaker of tho House of Jlcprcsenta
tles. nnd one copy to the Delegate of
the Territory of Haw'.ill.
i ' J. W. KELIIKOA.
Dickey asked that the House refrain
from hysterical comments on Just
Plain newspaper talk. T
"Mr. Speaker," began Dcckley, " I
would be In favor ot.tabllng tho reso
lution If It were not for these reasons.
Two years ago we wereannoxed to the
United States without our consent and
by superior force and might, and now
the same thing Is trying to bo repeated.
"These newspapers do not represent
the pecplo at large, but only a small
class of them. To bear out. my point I
would say that last campaign I wan
opposed by every rcputablo newspaper
In' these Islands. Yet I was elected by
n larfe majority, which only goes to
show what I havo said regarding their
non-representation of the people.
"When the newspapers are agitating
a matter of this kind dltcctly against'
the wish of the people, it Is only right
that the House should express her feel
ings In the matter, California has
enough trouble of her own, not to be
bothered any more with ours. Tho
first thing would happen were wo an
nexed to California, would be tho re
moval of tho San Francisco pest houso
to Molokal. Then too, the convicts of
California would all be deported here
and this would be the" landing placo
of all sorts of riff raff. Then too, our
campaigns which have been so clean
heretofore, would b" tainted with tho
eternal presence of the Almighty Dol
lar." "All this talk, "replied Emmeluth.
"Is a grand and glorious tribute to tho
power of the press. Tho press has its
power both for good and evil, as has
been shown by the late developments
relative to the twllcl question. The
press havo kept at that subject until
tbey have won out. Beckloy has stat
ed that he was opposed by all the news
papers last campaign. Well, I liave a
sneaking Idea that" I was In the same
"If Hawaii Is annexed 'to California
we won't stand any more chanco than
Chinatown, and not be thought of half
as much as that little, district."
"This article Is a lie," shouted Pren
deigast, jumping to his feet. "This ar
ticle In 'the Evening Bulletin states that
all classes of people, are in favor of ft.
The Homo Rule party Is not In favor
of It, and as a member of, tho Homo
Rule party In behalf of the people
whom I represent, I want to say no to
any proposition of this kind."

In two or three months' time now,
tho filth that has been flowing Into the
hundreds of cesspools In and about the
city will be flowing In one common
channel tho sewer out Into tho ocean.
This will bo good news to Honolulu
However, there seems to be a doubt
as to whether the sewers can really bo'
used nt the end of tho 'time mentioned
even though the connectlonsnre made,
fur on Saturday last, tho work on
tho outfall was stopped on account of
the lack of money In the Treasury of
the Territory. Work has gone on to n
depth of forty feet and the original
contract calls for n depth of n hundred
It will ho remembered that connec
tions with tho sewer were made as far
back as December last but these were
only in special cases whero It wn
found that connections were absolute
ly necessary to the various building
and places, concerned. ,
The connections being made now
aro general and extend all tho way
from Llllba street to Punahou, the
principal district being makai of Bore

great many connections arc being made

course with the lack of funds In tho
Treasury. The I only way out of tho
whole thing Is a special session for tho
passage of a loan bill and that is Just
what the Independents aro fighting for
They killed Cecil Drown's bill because-
they did not want Congress to
deal with the money matters of the
Territory for In tho event of such a
titate of affairs, thero would be no ccr
tnthtly as to whether or no Hawaii
would get the money desired. They
believe that action by the Territorial
legislature la tho only way to get
money by means of a loan bill. It may
be said that at least one of the Repub
licans Senators Is of the same mind.

Half Acre To Be Sel
Apart For This
GREAT ACTIVITY NOW ON
Alfalfa, Oats and Red Clover From
Olaa Department Would Have
People Save Pear
Since Wray Talor returned from
the Mainland, theie has been great ac
tivity In the Depaitment ot Agricul
ture nnd Forcstiy. The principal thing
on Just now Is the preparation that Is
being made for the planting of garden
truck In Niiunmi allcy. Air. Taylor
will go mi t.o tho government reHeru
tlou In Niiunmi nt the end of tho week
nnd will pick out n halt aero of llio best
laud for experimental purposes along
fhe ljne l mentioned. Among other
things, un attempt will- bo mndo to
raise peas, ft thing thut has never
been dona hero with any degtve of
success except nt Wnhlawu.
The Department of Agriculture and
Forestry makes the request to tho pub
lic to save seeds of nlllgator pears and
send them to the oillce in the Capitol
building. By doing this, the work will
bo greatly facilitated nnd the distribu
tion of plants will Increase In propor
tion. People In general nro rather care
liss nbout seeds of tin nvocudo pear.
Their cooks cut up the fruit nnd throw
the Bccds In the gurbugo barrel. By the
exeiclse ot a little care ou the part of
the people concerned, tho public will
leap n great benefit.
By the last steamer lrom Hllo, the
department received samples of alfalfa,
oats and red clover, grown by Squatter
Ryan at Mountain View, Olaa. These
specimens demonstrate what enn bo
ilono In the Islands by means- of the
exercise of a little attention. Tho al
falfa Is fully as tall as that grown in
California nnd the oatu la as good as
any seen on nn Ohio or Indiana farm.
The red clover which, by the way, Is
most excellent fodder, Is wry fine.
Tho department Is Jylt'tlow giving
Its attention to tho Indhicnotm trees of
the Islands. The fnct'tijat they aio
disappearing l- nienna ol the onslaught
of the men who clear the land for the
planting of sugar enne and tho ravages
of live stock Is too well known to bo
repeated. Tho department Is sending
everywhere Into tho widest pnrts of the
mountains of all the Islands to secure
seed for planting purposes In every fa
vornblo locnllty. This worfi has been
going on for a long time pust.bui now,
It Is being pushed with more vigor than
ever before. It Is not picposed to allow
tho native trees to dlo out.
When Mr. Taylor returned from the
C'onst.he brought with him a package
each ot the "ponderosa" nnd "muuli
less" tomatocH, the very finest thnjl
have ever been mtBed In the United
States. He has distributed what ho has
but will send for more In tho near fu
ture. Tho "Matchless" has already
been raised with success at Kalmuki.

ed by n Bulletin reporter relative to
keeping tho drujs off Fort street, said:
"I noticed the nrtlclo to which you

wish to say that I am heartily In favor
of the proposition. Tho only law by
which we could keep the drays off Fort
street Js the law regulating licensed
vehicles, which snvs that these must
obey tho dictation of the police. Now,
If I had a policeman on every corner,
I might be a'blo to lay down such a
restriction but, with tho small force
at my disposal at present, I would be
unable to do anything of the kind. 1
