Tho hearing of tho messago all (lie

Judge Edlngs this morning filed the
mandamus prnrnj'jhttBo against Secre
tary Mott-Smltu ti-compel him to re
ceive the nomination of John S. Chandler.-
candidate for Senator from Kauai.
Edlngs goes Into tho matter In detail,
alleging that Chandler was duly nom
inated, and stating that on October 3,
3908, ho deposited tho nomination ac
compaulcd by the necessary $25, ad
dressed to John Emmohith, In tho
postofflco ut Eleele, Kauai. Ho states
that Sunday, being a dies non, tho
tlmo for recehluginominatlons should
havo been extended until Monday, tho
day on which Chandler's nomination
was received. Tho mandamus was
served on tho secretary by High Shcr
lit Henry this morning.
Among the matters that will be
culled to the attention of Governor
Frear when ha starts out on his trip
over 'the Island of Kauai is the need
of a new school building at Hanu-
pepe. OTbvernor Frear and Reclama
tlon Expert Newell are at present on
a tour of the Islands ot Hawaii and
Maui, and will return to Honolulu
before going to Kauai.
Superintendent of Public Inst rue
tlon liabbltt will speak to the' Gov
ernor, however, regarding the press
ing need for a new building at liana
pepo before he leaves, and It is prob
able that the Chief Executive 'will
look Into the matter. Mr. Babbitt
hus just received a letter from H. II
Ilrodle, principal, of the Hanapepe
school, in which it Is stated that with
a seating capacity ot 274' thoro are
now 331 pupils enrolled
This, according to Mr. Dabbltt, Is
no worse than conditions wore last
year, but the future promises still
more pupils without adequate room.
Mr. Dabbltt will try to get. 'some
land on which ho can build a now
building. He Is at present waiting
on the return ot Governor Frear to
put the matter before him.

by the fact that a number of prepared

Deputy Attorney General, Whitney
has not jet made out the i complete
list of judgments,! but they'wlll prob
ably be on flla tomorrow. As It Is
generally understood that the Terri
tory does take the stand that the
growing crop, outside' of the ex
empted forty acrc3, are amenable to
taxation, It Is practically certain thnt
a contest will ensue. Probably not
more than $5000 will be involved In
each case. .
