'DELEGATEKUHIO'S LETTER ON HAWAII AFFAIRS
Kdltor Evening Ilultetln: A few
ilaja ago i received from tho Han alt
Promotion Committee a letter aJ
dressed to the Secretary of State, Willi
tho request that I present the en mo In
person to the Secretary. Tho letter
embodied a formal proposal by tho Pro
motion Committee that the Secretary
of State should call a conference to be
held in Honolulu of all the American
consular and commercial agents sta
tioned at posts In countries bordering
en the Pacific ocean.
In company with my secretary I
called upon Secretary Itoot on Satur
day last and presented this letter, to
gether with a copy of the resolution
which had been adopted by tho Cham
ber of Commerce. Secretary Itoot ox
pressed himself as considerably Inter
ested In the proposal of tho Promotion
Committee, and, while, of course, he
could make no promises In regard to
rarolng It out, be gave mo to under
fctand that the subject would have duo
consideration ft his hands.

tho passage of this measure '
Tho opposition of aovernor Carter
to the form of my revenuo bill is rath
er surprising. In view of tho fact tho:
my bill as Introduced substantially
covers tho entlro ground of the Gov
ernor's recommendations as made It
his annual report. In regard to the
question as towhethcr tho bill, a)
drawn, would provide for Federal pub
lic buildings, Col. Hepburn, and other
members of the Houso, declaro that It
would do so, and Mr. Hatch has point-

that question would bo removed by tho
Insertion of tho word "and" before tho

SAYS AZORES MISSION SHOULD WAIT
The otnclal duties and powers of tho
chief oxecutho of the Territory weie
today transferred from Governor Car
ter to Secretary Atkinson, who will
now rcsumo his old lob as Acting Gov
ernor This morning tho two "gov
ernors" bad a long conference at iho
Jartcr residence, where Carter Is still
onflncd Later in the forenoon Atkin
son went to the Capitol, Vwhcre the
formal transfer took place. Dr. Judd
was waiting for Jack, and on his ar
rival tho two had a short conversa
tion I Tho transfer was made officially
through two letters, one from Dr. Judd
and tho other from Carter, both di
rected to Atkinson.
i Tho form of the letters was as fol
Carter to Atkinson.
"Finding that tho condition of my
health does not for the present permit,
satisfactory performance of my official
duties, and being advised by my phy
sician that a period of rest with a
complete tellcf from work Is Imper
ative for the restoration of my proper
physical condition, I request you to
assumo the powers and duties of my
official position until such time as I
may be ablo to resume them.
"I enclose for your Information a
copy of a letter from Dr. J, It. Judd
which bears upon tho subject."
Dr. Judd to Atkinson.
"On January 14th. 1906, Governor
Carter wag taken sick with lntlucnz.1.
His condition wag quito serious for
two weeks. I In Is now convalescent
but much weakened by his Illness. 1
consider It necessary that tho Gover
nor should toko a trip away from tin
Islands and remain awa from lilu
duties until his health Is fully re
stored." As the letters had not been signed
Is what counts, not what you earn.
When you have saved money don't let
It He Idle In your wallet. It won't
work for you there. Bring it to us and
let us Invest It for you and you will
soon be receiving dividends which can
In their turn be Invested. This Is the
true road to wealth and contentment.

I Extending tho usual glad hand and
with tho customary smile, Acting Gov
ernor Jack Atkinson extended his
greetings to tho Capitol staff when ho
arrived at tho building at 11:30 o'clock.
Tho news from Washington which At
lklnson had was, of course, of tho great
lost Interest, and ho was asked many
questions on that lino.
I "Is therd any shuw, think jou," ask
ed a reporter, "for tho 75 per cent, re
funding bill passing?"
"There Is alvvajs a show for these
things, my boy," answered Atkinson.
"You know this Is a small placo and
wo aro not as Important as wo may
think we arc. Wo havo to go after
things to get them; that Is tho only
way to do."
Tho Acting Governor wag asked If
there had been any talk of cutting
down the amount from 75 to 50 por
cent, wntlo ho was In Washington,
'and If ho thought that It would bo prof.
.Itablo to Hawaii to accept that figure.
I "Very certainly wo Bhould accept 60
per cent ," said Atkinson. "Wo should
accept even 1 per cent. My Idea Is we
take anything that comes our way;
I then If we want moro wo can ask for
It, and wo will get it."

declares ho has not been to a meeting
of tho Civic Federation for a terribly

told a llulletln reporter this morning
' for I paid my llttlo dollar and I be

Mjsterlous political meetings occur,
according to the neighbors, at Senator
Achl'a house, but Achl himself de
clares that only ho and Olepau and
Hathtione, as neighbors, get together
and discuss the situation. "We have
