BOARD AND MAYOR

Wilson Is Head of Road

that tlie question of pound mas.

Job which was at tho disposal of tlio

matter bo allowed to rest until an
opinion could bo secured from tho
County Attorney. "Wo hnvo had
'trouble enough already," said lie.
Tho Mayor suggested that somo ac
tion should bo taken with regard to
tlio bonds for the road supervisors.
Aylctt snld that tho law attended to
that, but Mllverton said "No," so a
special committee, consisting of the
Mayor, Deputy City Attorney Mllver

pointed to handle the matter.

Shlnglu was tluyiuxt speaker. Pay
ing his lespects to Cohen, ho said
that although Joe was undoubtedly
i-.liicere, ho was not fully posted, Also,
"thu Hnnornblo Joel C, Cohen knows
that If this bill passes, It Is death to
his ono and ono half per cent tnx bill.
I ilo n't blame him for opposing it."
Shlnglu went somewhat Into thu his
tory o riho bill, explaining how by a
mlsuudeistandlliK theru wuiu two Iden
tical bills Introduced, Hu told of how
the commlttco camo to agree upon tho
bill, although at tho meeting last Mon
day night no l-o members of the com
mlttco were of thu samu mind In re
gard to the Immigration question.
Shingle's address was logical and
f i om n common-senso point of view
rather than nn oratoitcal effort, Ho
answered pollen's urguments ono by
ono by quoting from thu speeches made
Monday night at tho public meeting
ltepl)lng to Cohen's waning to tho
IlawallaiiB that tho bringing In of ICu
ropenn labor means tlio ultimate less
of their franchise, Shliivlo quoted at
Whitney & Marsh

The bill, Shingle said, was favored
by 102 corporations, 9 estate and 81
Individuals who derlvo their Income di
rectly or Indirectly from sugar planta
tions. The only ones who might have
grounds for objecting to It aro a few
professional men. When tho commlt
tco camo to taku a vote on tho bill,
they stood four for It nnd one ngalnst,
tho member Btandlng out being Kur
tado. Later Kurtado signed tho report,
making It unanimous.
At tho request of somo of tho mem
bers from tho Kburtli District, who
wanted to go mora fully Into thu mat

defer action until 2 o'clock,
Four Extra Holidays. '
The people of this Territory work
too much. Is the idea of tl)e members
of the House of llcpresentatlves, as
expressed In tlielr passage of tho bill
which was originally known ns the
"Lincoln Day" bill. This was Intro
duced by Kealawaa with tho Intention
of making February 12, thu minivers
ary of tho birth of Lincoln a legal hol
iday. An amendment was added to make
March 17, the nunlvcisary of tho birth
of Knulkeasull (Knmelianielia III) ulso
a legal holiday. Tliu bill camo up for
third leading this morning, and Us fin
al passago was a hugu Joke on thu 'op
ponents of the measure, who passed It
themselves unwittingly, nfter they bad
loaded It down with two extra holidays
Kalakaim Day, mid Independence.
An Increase In thu number of Irgil
holidays would benefit nobody but u
lot of government employees working
un monthly salaries, who mu ready to
stop work on any pretext. This was
thu aigiimiiiit Of Ittcu ngalnst tliu bill.
"Ilyu nnd byu," hu said, "we'll bo hav
ing, n Itoobcvolt Oay. n Tnrt day and ull
sorts Of days. I ran not support thin
bill; I move It bu tabled, We hau too
many holidays now."
Coney seconded this motion, snylng
thi'lu aro already entirely too many
holldaK when only the salaried men
gct.any benefit and tho men who work
by lliu day simply lose their time.
Sheldon suggested that ir March 1 '
Is to bo made n holiday, It might bo u
good thing to mil November 2S, tho
day Independent was brought back
and also the birthday of tho Waimea
statesman, nnd so he mocd having
no notion thnt.lt would cany.
Kaullio looked about, saw that tliu
gallery' whs filled with thu boys from
Kamchamoha scnools, and promptly
took advuutugo of thu clmnco to Im
press them with Ills burning cloqiieneo
In a noisy harangue ho urged tliu pas
sage of thu bill. Knnllio apparently
forgot all about Lincoln, but hu ex
tolled the virtues of Kameliamehn be
cause that king originated a motto
that, In tlio opinion of tho windy orator
from Koiiala, wll last for some time.
The bill la known ns tho Lincoln Day
bill, but Kanlho neer onco men
tioned tlio Qieat Kmanctpator; It was
Kealuwaa delivered n oology on Lin
coln, winding up with tho argument
that as Washington has a holiday
named for him, Kaiileliameha HI
should have ono, too.
Illco again renewed hit motion to
take the bill, but on being accused of
trying to shut oft debate, wllhdiew It,
and thu talk-fest continued.
Sheldon took occasion to administer
a merited rebuke to Kanlho for mik
ing thi race Issue nnd Insinuating that
thu haolo members wero trying to kill
the bill because It was designed to
honor ono of tho nntlvo kings. Such
u notrtm. ho said, was ildlciilous. If
(hero had been a motion to taldo thu
amendment only, theru might bu somo
reason for such a suspicion, but as it
was, tho ncctiBatlon wns'ono of whli.li
Its author should bo nshamed.
Tiring of tho debute, and with a vlow
to killing thu bill, Sheldon offered an
amendment to mako Not ember 28, Ha

Corroa added another umendmeiit, to

the Municipal Act, was reported back
by tho Judiciary Commit teo with n
recommendation for Its passage. In
a lengthy report tho committee points
out what It considers the good points
of tho measure. The purpose of ono
amendment Is to nvold any unneceJ-sn-y
delay In tho passage of resolu
tions which do not Include tha ppio
prlatlon of public money Tho amend

Tho bill, tho report pointed out,
unites clearer the Kiwers of thu mu
