Trie subject Just now occupying the
thoughts of the members of the Legislature,
as well as the Territorial Cen
tral Committee, Is tho expenditure of
the thirty thousand dollars appropriated
by the Federal Congress for the
expenses of tho Legislature of Hawaii
for ISO". It appears that the money Is
to be disbursed through the office of tho
Secretary of the Territory, nnd he Is to
furnish bonds not to use any part of
11 unless he has positive nssuranco that
the session will be completed within the
Persons familiar with the expenses
connected with a session say that the
sum allowed by Congress will not bo
sufficient for It nnd that it will bo impossible
to get through with the sum
allowed. In the past there has been
considerable graft In translating and
typewriting tho bills, but, excluding
this. It Is stated that thirty thousand
Collars will not cover the bill. The figures
supplied nro those of tho last
session nnd are ns follows:
Salaries and mileage $19,500
Cost of Journals 7,500
Clerical force, Senate 1,770
Clerical force, House 2,230
This, It will be observed, does not
contemplate the payment for Interpreting,
printing nor typewriting. Some
of the bills have to be typewritten
many times owing to changes, so that
each change may be noted and the
whole bill from Its first draft to the
final bill may be compared. This all
Representative Hughes has a plan for
saving the salary of a chaplain. Ha
would dispense with the services of a
regular official In this cnpaclty for the
session nnd would have the Legislature
call upon the different religious denominations
to provide a chaplain each
week, the different denominations to
Mr. Hughes has some excellent Ideas
governing tho rapid discharge of the
duties. He would have the bills In
conformity with tho platform of tho
Republican pledges disposed of first,
and when that is done the appropriation
bill would be Immediately taken
up for action. He thinks that In this
way the session may be closed on time.
Tho law committee of the Territorial
Central Committee held an executive
session yesterday for the purpose of
considering matters to bo presented to
the Legislature at the coming session.
It was supposed that this committee
would learn from the Secretary the
exact condition for the disbursement of
the money, and when this Information
Is obtained arrangements will be made
HOW POLITICIANS VIEW IT.
Tho Federal appropriation of $30,000
for legislative purposes In the Territory,
which Is regarded by tho local
politicians ns rather a mixed blessing.
Is not Intended to cover all tho expenses
of tho coming Legislature. Its
bcopu Is strictly limited to tho Items
specified In the act providing It, which
reads in part:
"For legislative expenses, namely:
Furniture, light, stationery, record casings
and files, printing nnd binding, Indexing
records, postage, Ice, water,
clerk h're, mileage of members, Incidentals,
pay of chaplain, clerk,
stenographers and mes
sengers, thirty thousand dollars: Pro.
vlded, That, the members of the Legislature
of the Territory of Hawaii shall
not d:aw their compensation of two
hundred dollars, or any mileage, for
any extra session held, In compliance
with section fifty-four of an act to provide
a government for the Territory of
Hawaii, approved April thirtieth, Anno
Domini nineteen hundred."
From this it will bo seen that no
provisions nre made for payment of
sessional Indemnities for members, for
Interpreting during the session nor for
translating bills and statutes Into Hawaiian.
These latter two are going to
foe stumbling blocks and probable complications
are threatened. Tho ono Item
for printing, for Instance, provides only
for printing In the official English
lansuage. The Items of expenditures
will bo scrutinized at Washington and
all other printing bills will most prob
ably bo thrown out.
This appropriation, too, places tho
Secretary of tho Territory In a somewhat
peculiar position. To secure the
fund It Is necessary that he shall file a
personal lond for $20,000 and bo hold
under It responsible for tho disbursement
of the fund. To protect himself It
will be ntcessnry, therefore, that he
exercise nn nudltor's power over tho
appropriations to be paid from It, al
though the Legislature will bo Inde
pendent of him In passing tho appro
prlatlons. Then, too, the fund is only
available provided that no extra session
Is held at which tho members voto
themselves an Indemnity, thus tying up
tho $30,000 until after the time during
which nn, extrn session can bo called
In all case of dispute the final arbiter
Is tho Secretary of tho Treasury at
"Washington, and this opens up a prospect
of a drawn-out correspondence,
encumbered by yards of red-tape.

January S, 11107.
Editor Advertiser: Much has. boon
Published about tho self-sacrificing devotion
of Unman Catholic priests nnd
sisters nt work in tho Leper Settlement
for tho unfortunate patients
there. No one with any humnnltnrinn
spirit would for nn instant wish to utter
a disparaging word concerning
those who have given themselves so
nobly to this work. Indeed
when tho calamity overtook the Koinnn
Church bi'ihling there recently not n
few Protestants subscribed for its re-erection.
Hut many forget and few outside
of Hawaii know that for moro than
forty years Protestant Hnwniian pastors
have been laboring nt Kalaupapa

that by thoir faithful servico they

A LOSING VENTURE.
Fern said thnt tho department did
not pay. It brought In about $i00 and
took about $2000 per month to run.
Tho upshot of the matter was that
Collector Jacobson was retained.
SAM'S SALARY SAVED.
Fern kicked about Roard Supervisor
Johnson's salary of $200 a month which
he said was too much and more thnn
any other elective officer was getting.
Ho thought that $175 a month would

Nothing spoils a good disposition.
Nothing taxes a man's patience,
Like any Itchiness of the skin.
Itching Piles almost drive you crasy.
All day It makes you miserable,
All night It keeps you awnke.
Itch! Itchl Itch! with no relief.
Just the sumo with Eczema:.
Can hardly keep from scratching It.
You would do so but you know It
makes It worse.
Such miseries are dally decreasing.
'jfeople are learning1 they can be cured.
Learning the merit of Doan's Ointment,
Plenty of proof that Doan's Ointment
will cure Piles, Eczema or any
Itchiness of the skin.

I tried nearly everything thnt was recommended

I procured Doan's Ointment. After
a few applications I was much relieved,
and, continuing the treatment, I was
soon completely cured. I have felt
no signs of that Intolerable Itching

Tho meeting proceoded without the

owing to tho lateness of the hour.
Tho chair called on II. T. Wills,
traveling representative nnjd ono of the
editors of tho New York Commercial,
tho loading commercial dnily of New
York City, to say n few words nnont
tho proposed Pnnpnclfic Conference.
Mr. Wills is a retired merchant who
is keenly interested in tho foreign
commerce of tho country. His work
in connection with his paper is taking
him nil over tho world.
Mr. Wills expressed himself as
heartily in favor of tho conference.
Ho said that it would givo manufacturers
a chance to know more of commercial
conditions existing in Hawaii.
Tho opportunity afforded for consuls
to confer together would make for
tho extension of trade. Manufacturers
would bo cnnblcd to get in touch with
tho consuls and moro information relating
to trndo conditions hero would
bo glcnned than, could result from all
tho letters that might bo written. Tho
geographical position of Hawaii fully
warranted such a conference.
Tho speaker said that such a
could undoubtedly bo brought
about if tho merchants' endorsement
of tho proposition was properly and
quickly followed tip by representations
to Washington, Ho would do all in
his power ta further tho projoct.

NO SUNDAY SPORTS
WITH ADMISSION FEE
"It Is not the intention of tho Civic
Federation to attempt to stop Sunday
baseball or Sunday recreation of nny
kind," said Ed, Towso Wednesday, "But
we will try to put n stop to any Sunday
sports or any Sunday exhibitions to
which nn admission foe Is charged.
"Dr. Scuddor, who Is tho moving
spirit In this, does not object nt all to
Sunday sports. Ho believes In them,
and ban expressed himself to that effect,
He thinks In this along tlio
French way, that healthful exorclso
which can not bo Indulged In by a good
many through tho weok can very properly
bo enjoyed on Sundny, but there
should bo no charco mado for spectators
at theso sports. As soon as a
charge Is made It brings thoso participating
In tho games In tho ranks of
workers, and Dr. Hcudder believes, with
us, that no man should do unnecessary
work on Sunday, That Is tho Idea underlying
the bill wo aro preparing and
which wc will attempt to get passed
by tho Legislature." '
The bill In question Is ono being
drufted by Senator Dickey, acting for
tho Civtc Fedcrutlon, tho two muln objects
of which are to prevent any
games being played on Sunday for,
which an admission feu Is charged, as
well as exhibitions of othsr kinds, and
to prevent tho keeping open of tho numerous
grocery nnd general stores of
Chinatown, which tako advantage now
of the refreshment clause of tho law.
Tho bill would put a stop effectually
to tho playing of Sunday baseball by
either of tho big leagues at baseball
park, which depend on the gato to sup
port their teams. Such games as aro
played during the season at Aula Park
would not bo Interfered with. It would
hnvo tho effect also of closing tho
Aquarium nnd tho Zoo on Sundays,
concerning which a prominent member
of tho Federation Is quoted as saying,
that this had been considered and It
was thought that theso places could
either closo up or allow free admission,
Tho fact that at tho Aquarium there Is
ono frco day each weok already, provided
for by tho founder, and not sub
Ject of chango to Sunday, was not considered.
