TELEPHONE PEOPLE HURRYING CONDUITS
Although tlio Btrect excavation or
dinance WB8 signed by Mayor Fern
mid practically became a law un that
date, the provision of the charter al
lowing the usual ten days after ap
proval will be observed by tlio Mayor
and Hoard of Supervisor. However,
on November, U the ten days will
have expired, unci If on that dato
the Mutual people are nt work dig
ging up the streets they will bo
stopped, an Injunction will probably
be asked for In the courts, anil the
matter will bo ready for a teat trial
of the matter.
The Mutual Tolephono Company
now has a large gang of men nt work
on Hotel street near the Capitol, ex
cavating nnd laying their conduits
for the new system. It Is ovldent
that the company is anticipating a
harmonious outcome of the squabble
now on, as they aro providing a
space In the conduit for the city po
lice and fire wires.
TO CELEBRATE ON
4 -- . . .,
Being Made By
Next Wednesday, No. 3, Is the
birthday of Ills Imperial Majesty, the
Kniperor of Japan. It Is nn Import
ant day with his subjects In the Ter
ritory, and. while no deflnlto plans
have been fixed, It Is expected that
tho business along the Japanese col
ony will be suspended In tho fore
noon of that day.
Consul General Uycno, who, It Is
bald. Is making every effort to ob
serve tho day In grand style, will ro
celvo the Japanese subjects nt the
Japanese Consulato in the morning,
commencing at 9 o'clock, until about
J 0:30, From 11 o'clock ho will re
ceive the representatives of foreign
countries, tho government nnd army
und naval officials, and tho knmaal
lias generally who may dcslro to call
on nnd extend their congratulations
to the CoiibuI In behalf of tho Km
peror. Hoth tho Consulate and tlio offi
cial residence of the Consuluto Gen
eral will be fittingly decorated with
Hugs, Rowers, mountain greens nnd
other artistic attractions. In tho
evening Consul Gcnernl Uycno will
dine with the Japanese subjects nt
Ills residence on Nuuunu street,
whoro, under the supervision of Sec
retary Ito, a large tout will bo erect
ed for the occasion.
Although it is not officially an
nounced, it Is expected that tho gar
den of tho Consul's official residence
on Nuunnu street will bo converted
Into a crysanthomum exhibition
ground, such as Is commonly seen In
Japan. This, In itself, Is unique,
und It will bo greatly appreciated by
the fortunnto guests of tho Consul.

The telephone gangs have been In
creased dully, and a large portion of
the work In the center of the city
will be nearly completed by Nov. 3,
at which time, It is said, they will
be enjoined from further excavation
until it can bo decided whether Or
dinance 15 Is legal or not, and as
to whether tho Hoard of Supervisors
really control the streets or whether
It Is up to tho Territory.
While It Is said that Marston
Campbell mado statements at the
beginning of the controversy regard
ing the rights of his office In the
matter, he Is sitting bnck now nnd
quietly looking on. In fact ho has
the Mayor and Hoard guessing as to
what his next move will be. The
Supervisors are hopelessly divided on
Iho matter, and there seems to bo
only one way to sottle the dispute
for onco and nil, and that is by a
test case In the courts.

Mr. Kennedy characterized tho oft
repeated story going the rounds ot
now steamers to bo added to
coasting fleet as mere rumors.
The report that the luterlslnnd
people propose to plnco a large
freighter on a run between Newcas -
tie, N. 8. W., and the Hawaiian Is-
lands, which vessel would bo en-
gaged in the carrying of coal cargoes
between the' Australian port and Ha-
wall, has been more or less freely
circulated. This, Mr. Konncdy, stnt-
ed, was also without foundation.
It Is understood that the sixteen
vessels now in the Interlsland Ber-
vice are kept pretty busy on tho var-
lous runs. The steamer Holene,
which went to the const somo weeks
ago, has been undergoing a genernl
overhauling, and new boilers have
