of law governing his light to leuppuint
the members ol the civil service com
mission, or to appoint others in their j
places, before .Inminry 1, lull.
It was Ktntcd yesterday bv members
of tho hoard of f uporv isors that should

in possible that this question may como

todiy, although tho meeting is osten
sibly to pns Cliristmas paj rolls and
to take up with tho harbor board tho
question of waterfront luvmg.
It w:is stated jesterday tint members
of tho ciil sorvica commission
have raised the question that under
the law they arc appointed for the term
ending Deccml oi 31, or a Jear
from now, on the ground that tho act
constituting the bo'ird states that the
major s' all appoint its members on or
before the first of tho jear.
As the commissioners now serving
wero appointed since January 1, 1!)13,
they contend it was for the balance of
this j ear and nexl jear as well.
"It is true tli.it tho loinmissioncrs
were appointed only ulont si, months
ngo," said Major l'cra J cstordav, "and
I Inve of their contention that
they are holdocr. M.ijbo there is
something in it, although the law eivoi

in his colossal achievement Jn conquering

there is a feeling of deep regret that he

Bcsults Were Just In Sight.
The death of Lieutenant Colonel flail-Ian)
came at a timo when )ia was just
beginning to seo results in his tremendous
work. Culcbra Cut has been the
most stupendous task uf tho gigantic
lUlidcrtnkjug at Panama and to Colonel
(iaijltird must go chief credit for earning
through this hugo labor.
Ho w,is invalided to the States last
July, sutfering irom a nervous breakdown,
and vvas critically ill at Huston,
and at Johns JlopMns, Dnltimore, over
since his arrival last summer.
It was in i$!7, that Colonel Gnillard,
then a major ou the general stuff of tho
Armj', was detailed to tlio Canal as
assistant to Colonel floethals. When
he reached the Canal Zone mid lool.cd
over tho scene ot his coming labors, ho
nas given the chicl chargo of tho Cu
lcbra Dhisipn. He found that tho
f reuch had completed thlrtj per cent
of tin) digging at Culcbra for
a canal -00 leet in width.
This left for the American engineer
sftventj per tent of llio labor necessary
for a -OU foot channel and all the act
Jitional woik required for the

(Juded. 'Jho Culcbra Cut runs through
tho backbond ot tlio Aineiicnii
It is eight miles long, and it wns
the only place mi the Isthmus which
presented a continual problem of dry
liggltig. Tho work up to lust October
was cntlrclj work.
Coloiicl Gaillnrd dug the Cul?bra Cit

In its immedjutu vicinitj', tho earth and

portion of, their foundation removed,

Tho engineer dug indomitably:
hill after hill fouud its angle of repose,
and tho landslide, stopped, save lit
and at points close to it, where
tho sliding was persistent. Colonel
Gnillard was fighting Ids last nud visibly
weakened enemy when he was compelled
to seek rest.
Tho entiro work of dry digging in
tho Culcbra cut had been completed,
boucver, and tho little that remained
to bo done has been jiicoiuplisiicd mi
his plans. AVhen ho started his isthmian
work, Colonel Gaillard knew that
he must overcome landslides which
weo eertuin to stnrt, when tho mountains
through which ho was making his
kliownd that their foothills were
becoming insecure. Up hail to mako his
Literally his work meant to shackle
the fert of the great hills. Ho accomplished
it, and the engineers of tho
world say that his work is for all time.
It is jaiil that in thp curly days of this
construction, hci never knew what tho
morning was to bring forth. Over night
tne mountains woro iiiffiy to lireaic
looso and to covor with their deposit
the tracks in the cut. Steam shovels
vcro often overturned and there wns
0,'wajs danger In the season that
tho slides would form dams, cut off the
draiungo pf the c,iit and flood tho entire
scene of their work.
Directed Every Dotal,
l'or tho greater part of his time on

out a chief assistant whoso duty it wns
to look lifter details. The efforts of

gave his attention nut only to tho

An important communication was received
at tho headquarters of tho
Department yesterday nnd issued
as orders bv' General Fnniton, in
the command ot tho department. Thoy
refer to tho pollcj of tho war department
in regard to tho locnl gunrd in

by General l'mistou is ns follows:
"Tho pollcj' of tho war department
In respect to tlio Nntlonnl (lunrd ot
Hawaii: Tho adjutant general of tho

had decided as follows:
" 'Tho of tho war department
Js to keep tho organized militia of Hawaii
on duty in tho Islands of Hawaii
(Signed) 'TRKpLRICK KUNSTON,
"Brigadier General Commudlng."
This assurance by the war department
that member of the local guard
will not bo orderod to foreign duty iu
case of war in Mexico or elsewhere, is
duo to inquiries sent to Washington
through tho rogular army officers hero
to secure an authoritative statement in
regard to tho policy of tho war department
in respect to tho local guard. Also
it may stimulate eomo recruiting of
tho guard by thoso who nt present feet
thnt it would bo a hardship upon them
or their families to bo ordered away
from tho Islands 011 military duty.
Beady to Serve.
Spoiiklng of this quostion yestcrdny
Col. John W. Jones, adjutant general
of tho gunrd, said:
"This matter was all tlirashcil out
somctimo ago by tho officers and 111011
at tho National Quiiril of Hawaii, amtf
us it is composed today, thoy destro it
to bo distinctly understood that thoy
are ready at all times to volunteer tn
go any w hero nt any time and wherever
tho United States considers It necessary.
It was pnlj1 in regard, to a few
young mon who did not wish to leavo
tho Territory that tho question wus
taken up at Washington.
"When the detachment of officers and
men went to Camp Perry ill August
last, and trouble, with Mexico wns
threatonod, it wns arranged that; in
cuso war brpko out wo wero to Immediately
cnljlo nn offer to tho war department
ot tho services of tho Hawaiian
sharpshooters to the government 111
any capacity it might wish of tho
even though they went as
privates hi tho sharpshooters' corps.
"I wQUld depreeato any feeling upon
tho part of anybody that w'ould
nrevent them taking up nrms in
foiiBO of tho Jfomcs of tho nation, for
tho homo is tho nation, nnd tho government
only exists for the protection of
the homo and the individual in his
home, and his right to tho pursuit of
liberty nud buppincss. I bclievo if you
wero to ask every member of tlio guard
lodny, oven those that first objected to
foreign service, tuny wouiil a express
these snmo sentiments."
