(lncrnur I'ronr's statement before
Semite Committee on Pntlllc Islands:
(Continued from Wednesday)
Governor Frcar Section 2, amend
Iiir section 2(, In regard to tlia pay
of the. legislators. ,
The Chairman What do they pet
Governor freer Thoy Ret $400
for a regular session mill $200 for
either u special or un extra session.
This Increases the- pay fur the regu
lar HCf-slnn from $400 to $000 and
provides tliut there, shall ho no com
pensation at all for an extra session.
An extra session Is something pecu
liar there. It differs from a spe
cial session It Is a session which
the governor Is required to call Im
mediately after a regular session In
iiiso tlia legislature has failed to
muko tho necessary appropriations
during the regular session, and with
the provision that until thoy mnWo
such appropriations tho old appro
priations shall ho deemed to bo ro
npproprlatod. That was Inserted bo
(ansa of conditions arising out of tho
overthrow of tho monarchy, and It
was not known whnt tho leglslaturo
might do. Ah a matter of fact, when
territorial government was establish
ed the legislature ulwnvs saw to It
that It did not pass the appropriation
Mils during tho regular session
That was with u view to getting tho
bulury for tho extra session.
When CongresH recently began to
inal.0 an appropriation tnwaid tho
expenses of tho legislature It added
a proviso that thoro should bo no
salary for the extra Bcsslon, with tho
result that the appropriation hills are
now passed ddrlng tho regular ses
sion. Hut It Is deslrablo, I thlnK, to
Increase the salary for tho regular
M-tslou, because it is growing mot a
und more dIMcult to' get good men
to run with tho present salary Tho
cost of living Is somewhat high in
Honolulu, and tho numorous county
oflWcs lately created have come Into
competition with the legislative, of
fice. Senator l'llnt How many mem-
beta of tho legislature tiro there?
npHE MAYFLOWER QUARTZ & CHANNEL MINING COMPANY proposition today. What J have been
A telling you is cither true or it isn't. Either Facts or Fairy Talcs' I say that they arc FACTS, and I have
the proofs in my office Maps, U.S. Geological Reports, Ore specimens from the different veins, and Photographs
of the Mine and our twenty stamp Mill. Then talk with Honolulu men who have yisitcd the property who will
tell you that all you sec in the Photographs is there and more. You owe it to yourself to Investigate this propo-v
sition from top to bottom, to look it through and through.
Supposing you let this Opportunity go by. When "MAYFLOWER" goes to $1.00 bid and sellers as scarce as hen's teeth, you will advise your friends that you could have
bought it at 25 Cents and made a stack on it. You've probably retailed the same yarn about "Engels Copper." You did not accumulate that when going at a quarter per. Take
my advice and don't slip up on this chance. BUY "MAYFLOWER" SIOCK, BUY IT NOW! It's an investment, not a speculation. Mayfliwer is a sure popproposition. Both
the little fellow and the big fellow can make money on this deal. They get proportionate profits. Hurry up and connect with a block of this stick. The "MAYFLOWER" has no
gamble frills on it. It's no dream, or rainbow painting. It's no crazy prospecting scheme, where you stick your money into the ground, and git nothing but a hole to look at. It's
exactly what it purports to be a real gold mine. Investigate, look into! t. BUY "MAYFLOWER" STOCK. BUY IT NOW.
No product in the world compares with gold, in steadiness of demand and evenness of price. Silver, Conper, Iron, Zinc, Lead, and other metals go up and down. The
pioducts of Factory and Farm fluctuate with the seasons, But Gold Bullion commands one price the world over. Good times, hard times, all times the world takM all that is
offered, at the high market price. We've a large bullion crop awaitins? further development, and the starting up of our Mill. Dividends will then be in order. Do you want any
of them made out to your order? If so, favor me with an early call, or a billet-doux with check enclosed. BUY "MAYFLOWER" STOCK. BUY IT NOWI

I should llko to say a word for tho
secretory of tho Torrltory. IIo now
receives $3,000, and his salary Is In
creased to $5,000 by the bill. IIo,
of courso, acts as governor during tho

In tho Sennto at tho last session In

Senator Warner Practically, now.
Oo'trrnor Frcar I might say a
ward In regard to section 12. Trior
to the naturalization law passed last
jcur by Congress the circuit judges,
in Hawaii oxcrqlscd jurisdiction to

unequivocal terms In tho new law,
but tho old law specified district

Hon has arisen as to whether tho
"circuit" courts of Hawaii wore
"district" courts within tho meaning
of tho naturalization law. Some 889
persons were naturalized by tho cir
cuit com ts under tho old law. Thcso
are vcr) desliublo people. Tho ob
ject of thlB section Is to valldato

question of Jurisdiction is concerned.
This Is copied from n similar act pass

The Chairman Turn bark, now,
to pago 8, Governor, and explain sec
Governor l'reur Yes, I am glad to
speak of that Section 9 amends sec
tion 91 of (ho organic act. That sec
tion of tho organic net provides that
tho property ceded to tho United
States upon annexation should re
main In tho possession, control, and
management of tho Torrltory until
sot usldo for tho uses and purposes of
tho United States b tho President
or b) the governor of Hawaii
At tho outset much property was
set nslde at the Instance of army

1t might iiltlmatvl) bo requlic-d for
military and naval purposes. How

over, It Is found that some of It Is not
so required and this Is to nuthorlzo
tho President In such enscs to restore
it. It would apply to nay property
set asldo In tho futuro
Tho second portion of tho section
permits the President to transfer to
the Territory tho tltlo to public prop,
city actually used and In tho posses
sion of tho Territory for public pur
poses or required for Biich purposes.
1'or Instance, tho Territory desires to
put up a $75,000 school building. It
does not 'exactly like to do It upon
fedcrnl land. It would rather hnvo
tho title to that land. It is tho samo
way with other properties that arc
now used for streets and parks and
public building sites, and for tho lo
cal waterworks und things of that
sort. It would seem that tho title
ought to be transferred to tho Terri
tory Of course, nt present Uio Ter
ritory Is acting Just as If It had ti
tle. Then there Is another provision by
which tho Territory may transfer por
tlons of Its property to the counties
For Instnnco, If It washes to turn over
waterworks In a particular county to
tho county it may do so undor this
I might say In connection with
this that the personal property own
ed by Hawaii, as well as the, real
property, was all transferred to tho
United States upon annexation, but
afterwards Congress passed a law
permitting tho Torrltory to sell ami
dispose of it and uso tho proceeds,
which was practically u transfer back
to tho Territory of tho personal prop
Tho Chairman Referring again to
tho provision about salaries, all tho
salaries mentioned hero aro paid out
of tho treasury of tho Territory ex
cept that of tho United States district
Governor Frcar No; all of tho
Judges In thut section are paid by
tho United States.
Tho Chairman Is the governor
paid by the United Status?
Governor Frcar Yes.
The Chairman And tho secretary
of tho Territory?
Governor Frcar Yes.
Tho Chairman This is true" us to
all tho Territories?
Governor Frcar I believe bo.
I hero Is another section bore
v hlcli perhaps may require explain
tloti It is section 11 amending sec
tion 97 of tho organic act Section
97 distributes the health authority,
placing all quarantine authority In
tho l'odoral Government and tho local
health authority in tho terrltoria'
government Not only Is tho Torrl
tory In straitened circumstances (In
nuclully, but tho conditions aro such,
i r , r
mid are rapidly becoming ruoro so, as
to require Increased expenditures In
local henlth matters for national pur
poses and because of national pur
poses. For Instance, tho United
States Is going to have It Is already
beginning a large military nnd na
val forco there.
(Then, again, Hawaii Is a sort nt
Alter for purifying tho stream ot Im
migration and travel from the Orient
a filter ngnlnst disease of all kinds,
tho cholera nnd tho phgito partic
ularly. Yellow fever also Is In dan
ger ot being brought thero now that
we have so much commerco by way
of Sallna Cruz with tho Kastcrn
Then, again, leprosy Is an Impor
tant subject In local health matters.
Itccently tho Federal Government
has enacted legislation for assisting
in that work. It has established a
leprosarium at tho leper settlement
and appropriated liberally for the
study nnd Investigation ot leprosy.
That is a matter I have been going
Into a good deal during tho past year,
and we aro about to Instituto a radi
cal changa In tho policy of handling
leprosy. This has como about largo
ly as tho result of discussions with
Dortor Koch, tho eminent Gorman
It Is thought, In view of theso con
ditions, which arc of national Impor
tance, that tho Federal Government
should assist somewhat in maintain
ing proper local health conditions.
Thoro Is un emergency fund undor
tho Public Health nnd Marino Hos
pital Service, but I understand It can
not be used until an epidemic actu
ally breaks out, and then It takes a
long while to get It, If wo can get It
at ull, So far wo havo not succeeded
In getting It at all. Prevention Is
better than cure. Moreover, whon
ono of thcso diseases' breaks out,
prompt measures for Its suppression
aro necessary. There should bo a
fund that can be drawn upon for such
Tho Chairman How many lepers
havo joii thero In that settlement?
Governor Frear At tho bettlornont
'Iho Chairman Is the number In
creasing or diminishing as tlmo
Governor I'rcar It Is diminishing
at tho settlement, but In tho opinion
of tomo physicians It Is Increasing
out of tho settlement. It Is exceed
ingly dimcitlt to get hold ot tho Ha
wallans, nmong whom leprosy Is
chiefly found. Tho conditions thon
are Just tho rovorse of what thoy aro
In the Philippines. In tho Philip
pines the natives are afraid ot lep
rns) us they urn throughout tho Hir
i:ust Tho dllllculty there Is to get
people who will consent to go to tho
Toper settlement to take care ot tho
lepers, but there Is no difficulty In
getting hold ot the lepers; their
friends will give them up. In Ha
waii It Is just the reverse. Tho Ha
wallans have no fear ot leprosy. They
are loath to giro themselves up nnd
they aro loath to glvo their friends
up. We are going to try to chango
conditions so as to ovcrcomo thut,
with a view to eradicating tho iIIb-
ealo within u comparatively short
Tho Chairman Havo jou any
hopo ot eradicating It?
Governor Frcar A great deal of
Tho Chairman How long docs n
loper live after ho Is stricken?
Govornor Frcar It varies. Somo
times ho will live fifteen or twenty
years. Tho lepors generally dlo ot
Tho Chairman Leprosy Is ulwajs
fatal, Is It not?
Governor Frear Oh, yes; although
the lepers generally die ot some oth
er disease which they contract.
Tho Chairman It Is an Incurablo
disease, Is It not?
Governor Frear It Is supposed to
be, but there Is much hopo ot being
nblo to effect cures. Wo are now
ablo practically to effect cures so
that jou can not toll clinically that
a person has leprosy. You can toll
only by bacteriological examinations.
We can put a person beyond tho
stage where ho will transmit tho dis
ease to othors.
Tho Chairman Do jou then ro-
storo him to toclety and allow him
to leavo tho settlement?
Governor Frcar No. As a rule,
after thoy onca get thero they do nut
wish to leave. They aro treated so
well thaC we can not get them to
leave, as a rule. What wo wish to
do Is to got them In tho earlier
stages, whon tho disease Is most can
lly transmitted and thorctoro when
It Is most dangerous, and at tho samo
tlmo when thero Is most chanco ot Its
Tho Chairman Who maintains
tho expense ot that settlement?
Governor Frear Tho Territory
Tho Chairman About what Is that
Governor Frcar About $125,000
Tho Chairman -It Is a ajreat tax ou
Governor I'rcar Yes, Then thero
aro other expenses outside tho settle
ment, but connected with it, amount.
Ing to $25,000, thus making the to
tal cost of leprosy to tho Torrltory
$150,000 a ear.
