pears that this has been disposed of.
' Another question that arose was
the matter of placing a charge on the
use of the wrater. The Governor fin

annum or month be assessed instead
of a charge per million cubic feet.
It is now understood that the board

this suggestion. . -

Says Frear
Two years ago the Republicans
hired all the autos and mo of the
hacks and when the Democratic run
ners rose bright and early on election
morn and prepared to give their
stanch supporters a free ride to the
voting booth, there was npthing to
give them a ride in except a wheef
narrow or an express wagon. The
Democrats always claimed that this
lack of transportation cost them the
election of at least one mad, Lester
Petrie, to the Board pi Supervisors.
Something like twenty-four ma
chines have been staked out with a
Democratic sign on them for election
day this year.
Two years ago the Democrats were
poverty-stricken in the extreme. Now
there seems to be considerable activ
ity in the campaign fund line and a
corresponding rise in the tide of hoDe
among the Bourbons.

For instance at the Territorial treas
ury about $200,000. is pal dout month

paid in salaries and goes out in round
figures. But the remainder goes to
pay bills of innumerable varieties
which the government incurs, and
these invariably are figured out to the
cent, usually having tome such figure
as 62 or 63 cents included.
If he final figure Is three cents or
more the registrar must pay the full
five cents. If it Is only one or two
cents the cashier keeps the one or two

The same system hold true in the
banks of the Territory. In some in
stances the cashier or tellers may be
relieved of the burden of making up
the discrepancy from thejr own pock-
els, in which case the banks them
selves assume the loss, preferring to
spend that amount to maintain the pub-
lie policy and avoid handling the cop-
per change. m

thing as to the detailed plans of the

thinking of establishing a branch here,
as it, would be impossible to take the
labor to the mainland.
At the present time a great deal of
raw silk is taken through Honolulu to
the mills of the mainland and' even to
Europe. Many vessels from the Ori
ent bring silk cargoes through here
valued at upwards of a million dol
lars, and silk trains are rushed from
California to the Eastern mills with a
right of way over any other kind of
freight traffic.
