Tho leaders say that by this nctlon
the administration has madu tho

Tho Mmtimcnts of tho leaders or
tho party were expressed this morn

"It Is probable that Campbell told

tho warrant by which ho had been
overpaid, and nri it Is admitted, by a
mlstnko on Holt's part, did Campbell
tell him to havo tho mistake rectified?
No, ho told Harbottlo to collect pay

this action by tho administration

tho Territory has been afflicted In
Among tho moro conccrvatlvo He

"Governor Frenr must havo felt that
this action was necessary for tho bOBt
Interests of tbo public service. I
know that ho wants to havo In tho
public service as many Hawallans and

havo felt that It was not safe to con

feel groat regret ovor tho mattor."

Seven dnys out from San Francisco,

unusually good voyage down from tho
Coast, rough weather being encount
ered only on tho first two days out
from the Ooldcn Oato city, when near
ly all of tho passengers wcro sick.
The rest of tho trip was splendid, ac
cording to tho officers.
Tho Duford hns on board 825 en
listed men, 100 colored recruits, and
sovcral hundred passengers and of
ficers. Tho soldiers are on their way
to Manila wbcro they will do a two
year's tour of duty. Tho colored
troops will also do a two year's tour
of duty, though they may not go
ahead on this boat but wait for an
other transport. Tho Iluford Is so
ovor-crowded that everything posslblo
Is being done to get pcrmTsrton to

where they would wnlt for tho next

HARB0TTLE PROBABLY TO BE FIRED
Tho firing of Jlmmlo Holt from
his office as Tax Assessor appears to
have been the result, not of nny dis
honesty on his part, but of his grnvo
mlstnko In trying to cover up an
error In his' accounts. Tho original
error consisted In overpaying Har
hottle In jommlsBlons on collections,
nnd could very easily havo bocn rec
tified had Holt felt Inclined to go to
the Governor and acknowledge that
he had made a mistake, and asked
how It could bo corrected.
Dut the truth of tho matter seems
to bo that Holt know that his supe
rior. Treasurer Campbell, was after
his scalp, and ho was afraid to go up
with the mattor for fear that Camp
bell would take It as an excuse, to get
him. Consequently; ho attempted to
cover tbo error up by making out In
correct reports fad ordering Harbot
tlo to do tho samo.
"That Is whero I made an nss of
myself," said Holt this morning,
"and I acknowledged as much to the
Governor. I admitted candidly that
a mistake had been made, but that
the substitution was for ths purpose
of rectifying this mistake. And I
deny absolutely that the County of
Oahu has suffered by the mistake.
"It all camo about through a con
versation I had with Sir. Itlco whtlo
the Legislature was In session. A
bill was before the Legislature au
thorizing the Tax Assessor to collect
road taxes. This bill failed to bo
como a law, but I understood Mr.
Illce to suy that It had, and so I hill',
tho road taxes for July and August
collected. When I discovered that
this was wrong, I corrected the mis
take by assessing the County a larger
proportion of the commissions for
collecting poll tuxes In November. So
tho County has not suffered nt all."
Tbo Governor In his statement yea
terday concerning the mattor Inti
mated that thero were other cauBea
for the request for Holt's resignation
other than those made public. Holt
was asked In regard to this and re
plied that tho Governor and the
Treasurer had Intimated that ho had
committed acts In 1904 similar to
tho ones complained of in this in
fctnnco. "I offered to go Into tho
matter with them," he said, "but
tbey declined to discuss It at all. Tho
fact Is that at ono time during that
year I was obliged to pay the Janitor
out of my own pocket, which I could
not afford to do. I tried to get the
money refunded but wns unablo to
do so. I even went to tho Legisla
ture for It, but they would not ullow
It. So I permitted Collector Francis

"But tho fact still remains thntnot

bottlo by such pooplo ob P. C, . Jonos
and Lowers & Cooke, where ho was
cmplo)cd nnd wns fired for Incompe

Holt stntcd further that Ma had felt
for the three years last past he had
had no control over Wlldo-r nnd liar
bottle on account of-tho attitude of
Treasurer Campbell who or pearcd to
bo backing them up. Holk'hnd com
plained to Campbell of tho inattention
of Wilder to certain duties but Camp
bell had persisted In Ignoring tho com
plaints, nnd Holt formed the opinion
that ho was backing up Wilder with
the view of getting him to supercede
t It is probable, however, that Holt It
mistaken In this last statement. Har
bottlo Is still In tho tax omce. but tho
chances that ho will remain there are
pretty slim. Although Oovernor
Frear would not mako nny direct
statement to this effect thin morning,
ho Intimated very strongly that thero
will soon bo a rncancy In tbe place
now occupied by Mr. Ilarhottle.
The Oovernor wns asked how It was
that Holt was fired for paying over to
Harbottlo money not rightfully duo the
latter, whllo Harbottlo, who knowing
ly accepted this money, was retained.
