''-:-i:r- Backed by an appropriatlcn of $250, 000, the Philippine islands are plan ning an elaborate and extensive ex hibit at the Panama-Pacific exposi tion in 1915, according to F, W. Tay lor, formerly commissioner cf agricul ture of the Philippines and now di rector cf the Filipino exhibit, who spent a few hours in Honolulu yes terday before departing for San Fran cisco in the Korea. The Philippine building will cost in' the neighborhood of $40,000. and the plans, recently complete at Manila, are now in Mr. Taylor's hands to be put by him before the commission officials in the coast city. Mr. Taylor Is a clcse rriend of H. P. Wood, chair man of the Hawaii fair commission, and he anticipates meeting the local representative in San Francisco. The Philippines plan to make extensive exhibits of such subjects as educa tion, agriculture and forestry, and isl and domestic science and ,.' manual training work is to be shown in ac tual operation, says Mr. Taylor. The commissioner laid special stress on the fact that the Philippines had no trouble in securing sufficient funds with which to carry cut its fair exhibit plans. The first appropriation made was $ 150,00a This was not consid ered sufficient, and another appropri ation of $50,000 was made, and, short ly after, another of the sane amount The announced meeting of Kewalo property owners 'to take action in con necticn looking to the stopping cf the reclamation work which is being car ried cn in the Kewalo and Kakaako districts under direction cf the board cf health, turned out a fizzle.

Ccmedy Members of the Democratic territo rial central committee in meeting last night reached an -important decision in their deliberations over the revi sion xf party rales ani rcgu'aUons. a decision which they say is in perfect lianrcny with the spirit cf the direct primary law. By the change agreed upon In the rules and regulations, all candidates for election to a committee, whether a county committee or the territorial central committee, and candidates for the delegateship to the national con ention. will be elected through di rtct primaries. This - was the unani mous decision of the eight members cf the territorial central committee present at the meeting. The job of revising completely the rules to bring them up to the new con ditions, conditions occurring with the enactment of the primary law. has not been completed by fhe committee, and it. is likely that a month or more v ill pasj before the revision is f in-is-hed. '-''.;''. :' But the decision reached last night is the one they say Is of the most im portance, and one cf the biggest de partures from the old order of things. The Democrats, said Chairman M. C. Pacheco, shewed that they are in sympathy with the primary law " and anxious to put the party in a position where it can work with it in harmony. Incidentally, Pacheco branded as un true an account of the meeting given publication this morning. According to this account the committeemen spent their time last evening grieving over If st or unattained recognition, and decided to send John li. Wilson . to Washington, at once with the demand that the administration recognize the territorial central committee. "We discussed noth'ng about recog nition, nor did we consicer : sending Wilson to Washington" said Pacheco. The whole account is a fabrication. At the "meeting we only considered the revision cf the party's ru:es. You may he assured Wilson is not going to Washington: he leaves today, I un derstand, fcr his home on Maui." ' . "We have decided to" have all com'-., ir.itteemen and delegates elected by direct primary. This will do away with any feeling tfyat party leaders are putting their friends in such offices, and furthermore wq regard It as the implied intention of the direct pri ma ry law : to have committeemen and delegates elected in this way.
