l HAWAIIAN GAZETTE, TUESDAY, AIMIH ,10, 1907 SEMLWEPI'
Tlio fact that t ho Incomo of the
Territory lias been spent, by promise,
almost twice over tliil not deter the
Senate from overriding tlio Governor's,
veto of tlio
bill. This nppropriatcs tho sum of
twenty thousand dollars for tho erection
of a mausoleum in which will be
placed tho remains of the monarchs and
chiefs of old Hawnii. Senator Smith
was the sexton who undertook tho disinterment
of the bill nftcr the veto
had been read and carried tho affair
Another bill among tho crumbs swept
from tho tablo was that relating to
permission for tho County of Maui to
go into debt. This was taken up after
being tabled and passed. It may on-courage
the emissary from Hilo who
is supposed to bo on his way hero for
tho purposo of getting a similar bill
through for tho Island of Hawaii. President
Bishop stated unofficially yesterday
that ho had been asked by wireless
two days ago if there would be
any use for Hawaii to try and ho wired
back negativo encouragement. The
Senator from tho vicinity of tho Mausoleum
opposes anything liko unwarranted
Tho bill to provide for the distribution
of tho net profits of tho Industrial
School and Lahainaluna met defeat in
tho Senate by tho amendment offered
by Senator Dowsett. It changed tho
aspeet so greatly that Senator
concluded that it would bo better
to tako what they could get under the
present bill than to fly to things they
were not quite snro of. Tho principal
objection advanced by tho Senators yesterday
during tho debate was to having
tho money distributed by one in
dividual instead of passing through tho
Tegular governmental channel.
A rather important bill lost was that
"which prohibits the use of firearms for
limiting purposes within three miles of
tho postoffiee. There nro a lot of aliens
"who shoot in tho rico patches by the
side of men who know how to use 'guns
and tho result is not always pleasant
to tho peoplo who reside in tho neighborhood
of tho rico patches. They complain
that it is not safe for them to
walk around their yards or to sit on
stheir verandas on Sunday on account
of tho falling shot. This argument was
advanced yesterday but tho bill was
too heavily weighted to move it from

Senator Chillltigworth, who had opposed
tho measure in his report to the
Sennte, took a similar view when tho
bill enmo back yesterday. Ho believed
it was a subject that could wnlt a
couple of years. Senator Smith opposed
this. Senator Bishop said tho mauso

years ago and there was no occasion
for further expense nt this time. No

looked after tho remains of some of

Senator Chillingworth asked that consideration

Senato Bill No. 11G, relating to
tnbution of profits, was called for

from Senator Knudsen who opposed
handing over tho money to ono man

which failed to meet with tho

Houso Bill No. 197, relating to tho
extermination of tho mongoose, was
read for tho third time. Senator Ma

to read "25 cents for tho head of

It looked doubtful for a. time whether
tho motion would rcceivo a second but
Senator Bon sett camo to tho aid of
tho mover and ho gavo his reasons:
Tho heads of tho deceased mongoose

Senato Concurrent Resolution No. 8,
relating to overlapping offices. Senator
Smith spoko against tho resolution in
much tho sauio strain as on tho provious
day. Ho said tho changes should come
gradually. Several have been mado
in tho County Act at this Mislon and
others would follow.
Senator McCarthy agreed with the
previous speaker but there aro certain
ofllccj which may bo dUpeniod with,
There nro Territorial oflloea which
should be done away with and tho only
way to accomplish thli it by making
amendments to the Organic Act.

necrMMry could be made hero without
going tu loiigrcM for It. Tho mot Inn
to lay on tho tnMe, made by Smith,
failed and the resolution wns adopted
on motion of Senator McCarthy.
Secrctnry Atkinjon then notified the
Senate of tho Ooomor having signed
the following bills:
Houso Hill No. 144, Act S9, "An Act
to ndd three new sections to Chaptor
13.". of tho Revised Laws of Hawaii, re.
lat'ng to garnishment, to bo known
as Sections 2115a, 2115b. and 21130."

Houso BUI No. 225, Act 103, "An Act

Senate Bill No. S7, Act 104, "An Act
to provide for the protection of birds
beneficial to tho forests of tho Territory
of Hawaii, and to define the same."
Senate Bill No. 117, relating to the
dlvls'on of tho license fees collected,
was read for the second time. This Is
a substitute for the bill vetoed by the
Goernor on Thursday and passed.
Senator Lane wanted It translated.
Senator Hayselden had his request
granted for the revivification of the
Maul bond bill and then moved that
It pass on third reading. It seems
that the Maul delegat'on received a
Joint wireless message that it would bo

did not pass. The bill passed.
Senator Hnyselden asked that tho
Education committee return Senate bill
No. 109 and then moved that it bo
Superintendent Hollowny appeared
before the Senate in the committee ot
the whole and made the statement that
the adoption of the Schuyler report
would mean great good to the Territory.
Following this ho made a con
fession that the receipts from the sale
of water were so large that they should
not bo lost sight of. This was startling
In view of the fact that the report
that the "waterworks was too great an
expense to be pased over to the counties"
emanated from his office. He explained
each Item In the bill to appropriate
$900,000 and admitted that he waa
partly responsible for the Introduction
of the measure which Is based on an
honest conclusion, regardless of his
residence on this Island. When he
went over the list of necessities for tha
Territory he decided these to bo th
most Important. When the Federal
Government appropriated it, did so for
such measures It believed the most im
portant. In that way HUo gets an
appropriation for a breakwater on
which Congress will spend a million
dollars. Of tho Items In Section 2 of
tho bill, after the Kamuela Item, tho
construction of tho shed at wharf No.
2 was most Important. Tho next In
Importance Is tho wharf along ono sld
and across the end of Government
wharf No. 1. Then camo the
of tho Government wharf at
HUo. Next In Importance would bo a
retaining wall around wharf No. 3.
Relative to the dam In answer to
a question Mr. Holloway said It was not
possible for him to say whether the
dam can be finished for $132,000. Practically
nil of the hard work has been
done. It was pract'cally Impossible fof
the contractor to have sluiced from the
Senator Blshon moved the Insertion
of tho following Item: Shed for wharf
No. 2, $45,000.
Senator Knudsen wanted to know If
the Senate Is In favor of tho Territory
going further Into debt. Senator Smith
said he believed It necessary. Senator
Dowsett said the completion of tho
wharves Is as Important as the completion
of tho dam, Tho wharfage
which now goes to private parties
amounts to $20,000 a year. He proposed
to help Maul and Hawaii when
the time comes.
Senator Coelho said Maul would support
any measure tending toward
For that reason her representatives
would favor tho adoption of tli
majority report submitted relative to
the dam proposition.
Senator Bishop said to show a spirit
of fairness he would move that the
Item of $15,000 for the Hilo wharf bo

to $20,000. Carried.
Senator Smith asccd for the
Items for building n retaining wall
around Government wharf No. 3, $43,-000,
and dredging Kllauea slip, $50,000.
Sonator Bishop opposed. Mr. Holloway
had said thero Is no ImmedlaU
use for these.
Senator Kalama said It was rather a
bitter pill to swallow but ho believed
It best to appropriate" the money for
Senator Knudsen said tho speeches
of today aro tho dupl'cates of the ut
terances of tho members two years ago
when $300,000 was appropriated for
wharf Improvements, Today they ask
ror almost as much more.
Senator Smith begged Indulgence
while ho called tho attention to tho

ago. The motion by Senator Smith for

VAN DINE'S MISSION
D. L. Van Dine, experiment station
entomologist for the Hawaiian Islands,
was a passenger on the steamer Korea,
which arrived Friday, and left a
few hours after landing for Washington,
xj, C, where ho goes to confer
with Dr. L. O. (Howard, chief of tho
Bureau of Entomology ot tho Department
of Agriculture, concerning several
problems that have como up In tho
entomological affairs of the Islands.
Ono of tho most Interesting of theso
Is In regard to tho honoy produced on
the Islands. Thero Is soma substance
there that tho bees obtain that glvos
a very high percentage of glucose In
tho honey. Tho government pure-food
law allows only a certain percentage
of glucose, as that substanco is one of
tho chlot adulterants that Is commonly
used. Whllo tho Island honey Is
puro and Just as wholesomo as that
produced In any part of tho world,
this comparatively largo amount of
glucoso shows badly In tho analysis.
The honey shipment of tho Islands will
amount to over 600 tons, this year,
and the producers aro greatly Interested
in having tho law so modified
In their cano as to allow the honoy to
como under tho pure-food products.
Another problem that tho entomologist
has to contend with Is a small fly,
that In some parts of tho Islands Is
almost driving out the cattle Industry.
This fly has been abundant for a number
ot years, but It has only been of
luto that It has ho seriously threatened
tho Interests of the cattle men.
Van Dine will bo In tho United States
for two month, nnd will thon return

WASHINGTON, April 13. Under

thoro is no way of preventing tho

It is evident from inquiries that
havo been mado by officials of this
Government that tho Japanoso, to
whom tho Japanese Government issues
passports to Mexico or to tho Hawaiian
Islands, havo no intontloa of
remaining thore. Their destination, as
tho laborers themselves havo admitted
on cross-examination, is the United
