way the treasurer put It this morn
ing. "We nre Just now making arrange
ments to have onu of the Territorial

fiiIiI the ticasiiicr this morning, "nnd
he will start out nnd run over nil tho
lines of property shown on tho maps.
This whole Idea Is not to bistst tuxes
.ill mound hut Is to equalized them,
The taxes nre very high nt the pres
ent time ninl there Is no lenson why
we should try to inlse them anymore.
"From opinions we have had of men
who should know what they nre talk
lug uhout we bellovo that there nro
thousands of acres of hind through
out the Territory on which no tnxes
lime over been paid and Is what wo
want to get after. It Is not fair Hint
one mini should hac to pay taxes nnd
the other one not.
"The tumble Is with the Territory
that very often n man will own .1
piece of property and that right In
side this there will he two or threo
oilier ownerships. All the time tliu
man owning the outside piece limy
have been pajlng tnxes on the lot.

em not ialiig that there la to be no

la pnlg too little then of con r so we
('hn)l hao to ralso him up. At tho
same time the whole Idea of the
scheme Is to get hold of those eople
who hac never paid any tnxes at nil

"I expect that It will take n long
time to finish hut ns each portion of

will get to work on it and straighten

Thnt tho present transportation

For twenty-eight round trips made
by the fast and commodious Sierra,
during the past eighteen moulds, that
Vessel has averaged considerably less
than one hundred cabin passencera

her return to the San ftranclsco-llo-nolulii
service, possessed first-class
passenger accommodation siifflclent

This vessel was placed on tho dl-

misguided iersons who aro prone to
nllcgo that tourists have been pro-
vented from visiting Hawaii nel sole

Hon on steamers plying from tho,
Coast to the Islands. j
It was on April 1st, 1910, tliat the
Sierra resumed her run across the
Pacific ob n direct Honolulu steamer.,
Un the Initial voyage the vessel
brought seventy paBsengcra. The
largest number ever carried In thej
Oceanic liner cabins between the
Coast and Honolulu totaled ono hun

this was on Voyage sixty-sixth, the
vessel arriving here September 8th,
1911. There are but a dozen trips

the height of the so-called tourist sea
