Monsarrat sprung a little sensation
In the House this morning. Shortly
after the House got down, to)work, lie
nrr.cn nn.t'.M.l' f ' '
".Mr. Speaker, I wish to tender my
resignation as a member of the Print
ing Commlyee. I' Intended to' do this
during tho rcgular'sesslon; but' through
reasons I do not see fit to give, I did
not do so. Now, owing' to: the resold
tlonHvhlch the Honorable'Makeka'u lit'
traduced In ,tho House yesterday.. I be
leave, 'to resign and hope that my
resignation will be accepted."
Aklnn promptly refused, to do any;
thins of the kind.
"Mr, Speaker," replied Monsarrat.
"My reputation has always been a
clean one. Through tho regular ses
sion also this present sessIonI,have
always carried myself In a , straight
manner, and no charges of dirty work
have over been laid at my door. Ab a
member of the Printing Commlttco I
for one, do not care to get mixed up
with the crooked stories which are now
going the rounds relative to that com
mittee. There are other reasons for
my action, ,wblchT7anr unable to give."
Hockley thought that'Monsarrat'a ac
tion was a reflection on the .whole;
House, and .thought that the matter
should be Investigated.
Prcndcrgast moved (Hat an Investi
gating committee ie appointed, but the
House laughed down his plea. ATilna
then granted Monsarrat's request,
which he received with many thanks.
The antl-"C. H. Dickey" crowd "stole
a march" on tho navigation experts.
Hockley moved to pass the Item of
expenses of the "C. H. Dlckey'',1iBt'lt
was In the bill, at $30,000. Hoogs sec
onded the motion, and the Item went
through on ball bearings.
As a matter of fact, there was no
such item In tho bill. A motion was
made to insert 136,000 In the, bill, but
tho House adjourned, leaving the item
hanging In the air. Since then, no ac
tion had been taken In regard to the
matter, so that Hockley's motion sim
mered down In reality to so much wind.
The Current Expense bill amounting
to 13,268,6:1.91 then passed third read
ing. Dickey was the only 'one who
voted against the bill. Hoogs. Kuma

voted for the bill but against tho

Marston Campbell, assistant super
intendent of Public Works, spent two
days this week Inspecting the roada
and bridges In the Walalua and Kahu
ku districts and has made bis report
to Superintendent Boyd. He found
both districts -In 'fair condition, the
main difficulty In each being a shortage
of funds' for road building and repairs.
The Increase in the' need for new roads
has outrun that tax levy: for roads 'and
the 'appropriations. Mr. Campbell,

able have' been wisely and economi
cally expended by tho Boards In each

the Road Board In Kahuku ,and Col.
Iakuea In Walalua.
In Kahuku, two bridges were found
that will soon have to be replaced.
One has a span of TO feet, tho other of
120 feet. It Is thought that tho cur
rent appropriation for the district will
.bo sufficient to rebuild these bridges;
The work will be done as soon'as the
cost Is available.
In Walalua, the, roads were found to
be In a very satisfactory condition.
Both districts are very large and the
task of looking after the roads In each
is a big one". j ' ' '

The motion for a new trial made Be

Fitch, attorney for plalntlff'ln the enso
of' II. a Rels vs. Oahu Hallway .
Ijlhd Co., Is tho first proceedings In the
local courts, Involving the "Constitu
tion and Flag" wgument. since the
3ilime. Court of the United Stat
made Its famous decision on the status
of .Insular possessions. The suit was
one to recover money, tried .before? a
Jury, February 16, 1899. The result
was a verdict for the defendantcleven
Jurors concurring, and one dissenting.
The only ground pressed. by'counael for
a new trial' was that of error In enter
ing Judgment upon' a verdict rendered
Mr. Fitch' said: '
fit tboConytutlfln of. the United
States ,, was. here bfi the $tli day fit
February ,1899, either x proprlo vlgore
or by virtue of the Newlands Resolu
tion of annexation, then the. Judgment
entered upon" "the verdict of eleven
Jurymen was erroneous, and a new
trial should be grwited. If as was de
rided In the Peacock and other caaca
In 12th Hawaii the Constitution of,tha
United States did not come here either
ex proprlo vlgore or by the language of
the Newlands Resolution, then It never
came hero at all, and Is not here now,
for'the Orgnlc Act merely states nega
tively what the Newlands Resolution
states affirmatively that 'legislation of
the' Hawaiian Islands that Is contrary
lot tho Constitution of 'the United
States shall not remain In force.""
Mr. Fitch was Dra:eedlne to discus
the-effect of thc'deijIslonTnthe 0dwn"e
ana DO L,ima cases on nawauan jaw
when Judge Gear said: .
"I, have no doubt Mr. Fitch that the
constitution Is here and has been hers
ever since the passage of the Newlands
Resolution, and that as I understand
the newspaper reports Is the decision
ot the Supreme Court of the Cnltea
States In the late rases, but as these
decisions overrule the principles an
nounced by tho Supreme Court of Ha
waii I will not decido this motion
until I receive the ofllclal report of the
United States Supreme Court deci
sions." Mr. Hatch contended that the right
cf blalntlff to claim a new trial had
lapsed and that at all ovents the ground
stated today was distinctly new anu
not sermlssablc. '
Arguments of counsel In the Insur
ance case In Judgq Gpar's court were
concluded beforCnoon and the causa
submitted to the Jury.

As to Disqualification
Of Supreme Judges
Only four lawyers responded today
to theinyltation.of the-Supreme Court
Justices to argue before them the ques

thai the Justices are not disqualified by
the fact that they own-lands similarly

Contract Labor Law
Practical Dead Letter
Washington, Juno 18. There will bo
storms or protests irom tne labor or
ganizations of this country when It Is
learned that the alien contract labor
law Is a dead letter; that It Is practi
cally nullified, and that tor some time
past no one has been deported for vio
lating It. Owing to tho, changes In the
rules relating I to, tne aumimsirauuu
pf the law1 Jf Is so difficult to secure
Conviction .that, all efforts to enforce
It have practically bee,n abandoned.
As a rcsnlt there are undoubtedly
hundreds ot laborers In this country
who have no Hjrht to be here, and tho
next report ot the Commissioner Gen
eral will show that lit comparison with
last year tew alien contract laborer's
have been denied admission. ,
The Government U now spending
$150,000 n year In perfunctory admin

Is obtained which shows conclusively
that the newcomer Is a contract labor

Industrial electric furnaces arc di
vided by -M.Kelar -Into three main
types: arc furnaces, which are ot nu
merous varieties. Including multiple
arcs; resistance furnaces. In which low
tension currents psbb ' between large
electrodes' through the material to be
fused, and Incandescence furnaces, with
carbon blocks that form an Incandes
cent bed for the material. The Clin &
Leleux furnace, of the resistance type,
uses as blghai 10,000 amperes at low
voltage, taking as much as 1,300 horse,
power .for a' single furnace. The total
power now used In electric furnaces
reaches 230.000, of- which calcium car
bide represents .185,000; aluminum, 27,-
000; copper, 11,000, and carborundum
2,000.- Recent processes Include the
production of vanadium and fcrro
chromium, the combined production of
Phosphorous ana carmac, anu me mak
ing ot artificial corundum by fusing
bauxite. The construction of Indus
trial furnaces has made such progress
that,vwblle In 119? tho product of car-
uiuc was only o pounus per norse-pow
er per 21 hours, the yield with a now
Gin & Leleux furnace Is 10.2 pounds,
corresponding to a colorific efficiency
ot TS per cent.
Attracted by tbj shrill whistling of
the wind through a network of wires
before a storm, Dr, Eydam, a German,
haa made a novel Investigation. Ho Is
now .convinced that an unusual dis
turbance In the telegraph wires fore,
tells bad weather and that tho char
acter of the atmospheric disturbances
may be learned from the sound. A deep
sound ot considerable strength, for In
stance, heralds slight showers of rain
and moderate winds within 30 to 48
hours, while a sharp, shrill sound gives
warning ot high winds with much rain

RUMOR THAT IRIo

There seems to be an air ot mystery
pervading the training quarters of the
HcalanLand Myrtle crews at Pearl
River, Things are not working alto
gether to the satisfaction ot tho cap
tains and coaches and the new boats
tor which so much money was spent
do not appear to be as easy to row In
as was expected.
The Myrtle Juniors in their lapstreak
boat are far and away ahead of all the
other three crows In their worK.and
so well nro they dulng that there Is
talk of putting them In tho senior race
against the Ilcalanls.
The rumor was on the streets this
morning and created a great deal if
talk. Then too the liontg aro being dis
cussed It seems thrt the Myrtle senior
crew cannot, niuko tilt new shell gj
and tho Healanls aro not making mii-Hi
better success with theirs. It may bo
that, Instead of both crews using ;ho
new boats one may uso tho lapstreak
boat. A prominent member of the
Myrtle Club when asked regarding the
substitution of .the "Juniors for the
Senior crew gave an evasive answer,
saying that there would be a big sur
