JOHN T. BROWN,
. D. PARIS.
In explanation of this report, Mr.
Baldwin said that, although It was late'
to present such a matter, still he felt It
due the clerk of the Senate that report
of the findings of the- committee be
made. For some reason or other Mr.
Kanuhn, the chairman of the commit
tee, had not seen fit to report. Tho
committee had examined matters care
fully and had found everything In due
form. The clerk was not only exoucr-
atcd but great credit was due him for
the way the Journal had been kept.
Mr. C. Brown moved the adoption of
the report. Seconded by Mr, Baldwin
Mr. Achl made objection to the way
the conference committee of the Sen
ate on tho various appropriation bills
had been chosen." The terras of the
resolution ,hnd not' beenyfollowed be-
cause no one to represent the fifth' dis

Mr. C. Brown called Mr., Achl to order

being nothing before the house, other
business would be taken up.

At a meeting .this morning of tho
directors of the Hawaiian Sugar Com
pany, completed negotiations with tho
firm of Gay & Robinson whereby tho
waters of tho Makawell stream will bo
brought out In thoTrtiar futuro upon
the plantation. This stream Is larger
than the Hanapcpe stream and Will
give the Hawaiian sugar plantation
more than double the' present witor
supply. ft ItkwH then have tbo best
supply" of gravity water of any planta
tion on the Jslatids. It Is thought by
the dlrec'tbnftMt this movo will make
'their plantation a 20,000 ton property.
To bring out this stream ,yi)l involve
the construction of a ditch which will
cost between $300,000' and 3400.000.

Hilo Libel Suit is
Remanded for: Trial
The .Supreme Court handed down a
decision today In the libel suit of Hen
ry J. Lyman vs. Tho rfllo Tribune
Publishing Company. The decision
grants plaintiff a new trial by reason
of .prejudicial errors. Tito ruling opin
ion was written by' Jiuhca 'Perry.
Chief Justice Frear concurring and
J n Bt Ice Galbralth dissenting.
The findings aro that: In .in .utlon
for libel, there was no evidence' which
would warrant the jury In fludtnr: that
the words published wsr's true or ta.'.t
the publication was privileged, nnd
that, under the' clrcuniitAiictM, It war
crror'for the court to refuse to give
n Instruction to' that er.'pct. ,
Where alleged Ubelloui words are
capable of being construed as charing
the plaintiff with Belling spiritual
liquor and 'opium without n-'llcenso. It
Is error for the trial judge to express
the vjqw, In the presence and hearing
of the jury, that the said words do not
so charge the plaintiff.
In an action for libel, evldenco of
specific, acts of misconduct on the part
of the plaintiff ls I nnd m Usable to
prove the' reputation 'of the plaintiff.
The dissenting opinion starts lout
with the statementr "I am not able, to
agree with the opinion of the majority
of the court in this case. One reason
for this Is thnttl have a settled convic
tion that It Is more Important to de
clare tho 'law of a case than to an
nounce that the trial judge has com
D OF FUN
The combination of first class enter
tainment and popular prices at the
Opera House last night will' provo a
talisman that will draw every amuse
ment lover In Honolulu at least once
and probably thrice to the Lee Vaude
, ,Jbe,'!trogram 'was a revelation even
after' the 'guarantee of the array of
well known names advertised as' th
artists. Last night, with Its. memories
of eaateru and continental vaudeville
theaters made one fwl as if we were
not entirely out of touch with the good
things of life awuy heie In Honoluju.
!( Is a,- hard matter to say which was
the favorite or which, tho best of the
acts, provided. Throughout the. pro;
gram.'tbe crowded house was more than
pleased. The Malir Sisters Introducing
themselves simply is dancers, with
nimble feet niid 'dainty costumes start
ed the ball, of applause rolling, Shaw,
perhaps tho best palmist of tho day,
completely mystified the nudlence with
his elucidation of how tho tricks were
done, Tho Musical Toblns as soloists,
on Instruments rarely choien for that
purpose, provided (a musical treat of
high quality and mndo the cyclphnno
sound like another thing from tho 'be
labored pjec'es of wood drummed on
by their precursors In Honolulu vaude
ville. Mrs, Qwynne's combination of
Bong and pictures was decidedly at
tractive while Nelstone nnd Miss Malir
In their grotesquo tcrpslcorean. gained
many encores. Mr, Nelstone who Is
typically English In his Impersona
tions seems to no unnaturally jointed
In his nether limbs and created many
luughs n'lth his supple eccentricities.
Feenle Gassmanln whom the audience
seemed to feel' a. proprietary Interest
was to many minds the hit of the even
ing, she and her piccaninnies com
bined. The Inimitable rolling of Blllls
eyes and the cute pigeon winging of
Irene .In boy's clothes called out encore
after encore'. Miss Qusman's wonder
ful makeup and hrr long course In
coon songs' have made her act a note
worthy feature In any theater. Sweet
the Musical Burglar brought a lot of
original and clever dialogue In con
nection with the evoking of a whots
stringed orchestra from the wires of a
Crown piano and had hard work to
persuade the audienco to let him' re
Henry I-eVs Impersonations arc to
the full as' good as might be expected
from the sterling actor and the' time
limit set between changes seem mar
vclously short for the creation of such
mlnuto details of dress and makeup.
The characterizations chosen from a
dramatic as well ns n picture stand
point were vivid, and tinmlstakeable.
Kelly and, Ashby turned Impossible
somersaults and flip (Inp'i on a billiard
table, with a spring mittress attach
ment? the net being unusually neat In
detail ns well as particularly clever In
action. Tho moving picture machine
worked well and showed a well.sclect'
ed series.ot vIoas, the, British, army
entering KroonstaiW ami the Montreal
Fire Department being especially good.
The. comedy films were laughable and
sent cveryonCBhoir3 in a good humor to
'act as a p"rlv"ato advertisement of tho
World's Entertainers' for tonight and
the rest at the engagement. .,
ASSESSOR PRATT HOPES
TO. 5IEER FAIR COURSE
J, W. Pratt, assessor; said this morn
ing, regarding his work.
"1 took charge heri on July 1, nnd
of course have hardly had time to cc-
quaint myself with nil the details of
tho ofrtcc.v The matter of making ns.
sessments was all completed by Mr,
Shaw before July 1, as the law pro
vides. In a general way I think tho
total of valuations for assessment nur
poeei'wl'll be higher than ever before.
This would bo the natural result of
keeping paco with the Increase la tho
valuo of all kinds of property. Somo
protests havnoome tn-and some minor
adjustments 'have been' made, satisfac
tory both to the Treasurer, and to the
property owner. It will be my policy
to make these adjustments direct with
the persons assessed 'io far as possible.
"There are certain Improvements In
the forms of the return blanks which I
think can be made with beneficial re
sults to all. Up to this time the blanks
have called for no definite area or exact
location. As a consequence, It was
easy for errors In valuations to be
made. The day and night rush of the
force to have all valuations mado by
July 1, was another reason for numer
ous errors and Inequalities. It will
be my policy to listen to all com
plaints to the minutest detail and como
to, satisfactory agreement with all.
' ''The valuations on plantations, I be
lieve, wllli run higher this year than
before. 1 liavc nut gone Intotthcir re

"In tho Income tax kurlnessj nil man
ner of questions are coming up every
day. The. members of the legal fra
ternity havo been prompt In making
their returns. These fellows Invarl
ably, come In with a smile saying,, there
are, my returns but I doubt If you will
ever collect However, the general
promptness of the big firms and bus!
pees houses to make their returns,
would Indicate that they have an Idea
that the law may stick. 1 advise all
people to -read tho law as little as
possible. All out the blanks, leave tb,em

Chamber of Commerce
Will Act With Mer
ARE MADE AT MEETING
Numerous Items of Business Trlh-
sacted at Well Attended Session
of Chamber This
The discussion of the Income tax was
the principal topic before the Chamber
nf Commerce at the meeting this morn
Ing. As a result of the discussion It
was unanimously agreed to contest the
constitutionality of the Income tax
law, A commltteo of three was ap
pointed to confer and act with the Mer
chants Association In thf matter, A
representative of the Merchauts' As
sociation present, said that three law
firms have been employed by that body,
and early action Is contemplated.
In discussing the matter In tfie meet
tngthls morning. It was suggested
that It might be better to leave even nn
unconstitutional tax law on the sta
tutes than by repealing It, to bring a
Hood of evils we know not of. It was
suggested that to declare the Incnio
tax law unconstitutional, would mean
a special session of the Legislature.
A special session. It was said would
mean a county bill and various other
laws more detrimental than an uncon
stitutional tax law.
Henry Waterhouie spoke In positive
terms In opposition to double taxation
and wanted to have tho IncomoUax law
tested at once. He was In favor of
meeting every Issue as It arose. Uruce
Cartwrtght said that he agreed with
Senator Carter said that It. mado m
difference what was done as to tho In
come for law, tho special session prob
lem would have to be met any way. It
was bis Impression that the purposes
of the majority In the Legislature Is to
tie up tbo Governor In such a way that
an extra session will 'be necessary.
Senator Carter took jn optimistic view
of tho Territory's financial troubles,
saying thnt the government is not In
need of money, nearly so badly us
some mny think. Ho referred to tho
method of Issuing warrants as a meaps
of borrowing money which worked
satisfactorily In the States, and saw
no reason why; such a method should
not bo used here. He Bald that the
Governor's estimates to the Legisla
ture amounted to only $2,300,000 nnd
that he figured tho revenue, would
reach the $2,000,000 mark, leaving only
a deficit of $300,000. Ho blamed the
Legislature for making appropriations
which he says will aggregate $4,000,000.
He said the only way out Is for the
heads of departments to work' together
In harmony and", not undertake public
Improvements until the money Is In
sight to pay the bills,
J. G. Itothwcll' favored the appoint
ment of a committee to confer and act
with the. Merchants' Association. He
said tho Issue of tho legality of the In
como, tax law should be met at once
and as to tho other matter, there were
a great many people who think an
extra session Is a necessity to tho com
Tho committee appointed to confer
Is composed of Messri. Allen, Spencer
In the discussion B. C. Macfarlane
spoke In favor of Immediate action. Ho
wanted the Chamber to meet nil Issues
as they arise. He therefore moved that
(lie organisation proceed at once to
test the confitljfttionallty of ih'e Incomt
tax law. '
Senator Carter spoke'agaln, giving It
U his belief that the law would stand
tho test and be the stronger from
having been tried. He did not believe
it to be retroactive.
On motion of Henry Waterhouse the
sum of $250 was appropriated to pay
the, traveling. expenses of W. C. Weed.
on from Cleveland, Ohio to Duffalo,
and of Mr. Gllman from Doston to

Bill in Committee
The conference committee went
along very quietly during the short
time they had to conduct business this
forenoon'. , Contrarj j toj expectations,
thero-ls but veryillttlo argument and
the spirit of give and take seems to be
as strong In the consideration of the
current expense bill as It was during
the consideration of tho salaries bill.
Items that It was thought would create
'a, lot, of discussion .'passed by without a
murmur and thei comnrltte succeeded
In getting through with one quarter
of the bill. If this "clip" Is. continued,
there will be nothing to prevent the
completion of the bljl M this after
noun's session, v.,,.
The oniypxcltemcnt during the
meeting. ontho conference committee
was when the 'item of water pipe for
Kula, Maul, was brought up. Monsar
rat called attention to the fact that the
Governor's council had decided to al
low Dr. Haymond to use the water
from the Pollpoll spring for a certain
Mr. Emmeluth knew something
about this little, matter himself and,
rising to his feet he said: "Damn these
special privileges. Personally, Dr.
Raymond Is a friend of mine but I
object to this granting of favors. I am
first and foremost for the people by
whom I was elected and next, I am for
tho people at large and I mean to stand
Mr. .Emmeluth then moved that tho
Item pas at $5000 with an amendment
to the effect that Kula be given tho
exclusive privilege to tho water. In
making this amendment, Mr, Emme
luth said: "Now Dr. Raymond can get
his water by tapping the main."
Mr, C, Brown came out strong on tho
sldn of the people and said that tho
spring at Pollpoll was the only sourco
from which the people ot Kula, Maul,
obtained their water, To take this
away from them and have the water
taken n distance of tblrty-flve miles to
where Dr. Raymond wished It to go
was distinctly wrong., The Item went
through with a ruBh, at $5000 and with
the amendment of Mr. Emmeluth.
