"This confer 4 ence will be followed with interviews , ,'lth the beads o! the various 'depart ments or me exposition, i win men submit ? the fair commission recom "wendatlons for its consideration and approval. "Just what jthese recommendations will be I do not know. I can only 4lnd this out after I have made an Investigation of conditions. We know that the Haw all building will be one of the most attractive structures at the exposition! It will be a. place where people can meet and be enter talned axd supplied with Information regarding the islands. These assets will make the building known far and wide Fortunately I have fully recov ered from' my J Illness and expect to have iven better health during the present year, . . fiThe work as resident commissioner will require constant effort and I ex pect to be able to hold up my end with success. ;At my request Secre tary Thayer will have gone Into mat ters regarding the. fair at San Diego ; and will - have .recommendations to make regarding , HawaU's publicity work there. ' These recommendations " will be taken sip by the Promotion ' Committee and t believe that San Die go will be a good ground for promotion work during the coming year. "As authorized by the Promotion Committee I will arrange for desk Toom with Thomas Cooke & Son upon arrival in San Francisco. An agent will be placed j there, probably ; Carl Nieper, who. In; addition to his work of meeting steamers from the islands, will supply ' mel at the . exposition grounds .with passenger lists and , in formation regarding the arriTals from Hawaii. 1 plan , to have the various island people act as hosts and hostess at the various receptions ani events which will be held In the Hawaiian building. The matter of special days and special events will be taken up and arranged largely by the exposition authorities. One event will be Hawaii day June 11, and Aloha Chapter day sometime in July. It is proposed to have some dis tinct event each month and at all times to make the building attractive. "Hawaii has th? friendship and good win of every newspaper in San Francisco, and I; have been Informed that all will give us proper considera tion., I also have the - assurance that the publicity men off the exposition will not neglect Hawaii in any way."

TO CHECK BILL KILLING APPEALS URGE CHANGES IN INDUSTRIAL (Continued from page one) especially to supervise the industrial schools. A special committee of the jury, consisting of K. A. Berndt, chairman; James A. Wilder and Charles Lucas, Investigated the industrial schools and drafted that iart of the report dealing with the commission idea. The report commends the work of the superintendents at the institutions bcth for wayward boys and for the girls. I'nder the heading "Girls Indus trial School" the grand jury reiort says: "in this institution there are at present 88 girls, all apparently weii and happy. Miss S. C. Sterritt, the superintendent, is a good disciplina rian, as evidences of proper training tempered by kind,- and motherly re gard are everywhere noticeable.

We recom mend this idea strongly and feel pos itive that it win have a' great effect on the work of the reform school. "We are certain greater success can be obtained and more satisfactory re sults shown If the reform work of the industrial schorts were placed under the Oare of a cotamlRftfon or hn. nf Control, created exclusively for this ', purpose. The wants' requirements and shortcomings could be better studied and understood than under present administration, and with this improvement in view, we recommend to the incoming legislature the crea. tion of such a board of control or com mission. The School commission era who now have charge have their hands , full with regular routine and cannot give great attention to this special work which is growing more Important every year. W e: also believe that the revenue from the sale of mats, carpets, lace. etc., should be used exclusively for buying new materials and for the de veloping .of the Industrial branches and not go into the maintenance fund The industrial equipment is too smali now but would be kept un and in creased lr the proceeds from these sources could be so applied. f A member of the jury said this morning that the committee whieh I transfer of three officers of the Ha looked into the industrial schools is'waiian Department 1st Lieut.

Change. character of the Questions involved This Section a amended Includp Porto Rico with Hawaii and continues the existing right to review in the i supreme court when federal rights are in controversy, but leaves all other cases to be dealt with upon a petition i 7 veruoran, as is now me law with respect to most of the cases In the circuit court of appeals." As a matter of fact, as the-Bar As- sociation points outn Hawaii's cases in the U. S. supreme court have been so few as to cause no burden. Since 1906, when the right of appeal, was rued, there have been only 27 cases where the appeal was possible under jttrlsdlctional .amount" Involved. 15,- 000, and only 14 where federal ques tions were involved. The cases by years are: In the last five years there have been only six cases, thus showing that . Hawaiian cases are no burden on the supreme court It is hoped that the cablegram of yesterday, together with the protests sent to other senators and to Delegate Kuhio, will result in stopping the bill before it passes the senate, but that hope is 'very small since the receipt of Senator Culberson's letter.

HARBOR BOARD IMPROPER USE VETOES B0C1S OF THE UNIFORM PIER PROJECT TO' BE PUNISHED (Continued from page one) concession' be granted for th2 erection of such a pier at any point between Fort De Russy and Diamond Head point. "We alo urge that every effort be made to secure the removal of the present 'Mcana' pier, and also the re moval of the unsightly remnauts of a pier and diving stand In front of the residence of Mr. J. B. Castle. "The removal of these structures would we believe largely enhance the appearance of Waikiki bay, uni great ly add to the enjoyment of tlx usand of citizens who fiec.r.en: the beach watching the surf riding and other aquatic sports. "We consider that there are great possibilities available for the develop ment of public bathing establishments and amusement piers on the Ala Mo ana, and urge that every effort be made to continue dredging for recla mation purposes at this point. 'Dredg Ala Moana economical and practical from a tTwl e,o,,,JL. largest possible surface area would covered with the funds available for the work. If this suggestion could be followed, reclamation of large areas would be accomplished on each side of the Ala Moana which could then be converted with a comparatively small outlay of public funds into an exceedingly attractive boulevard. (which would possess the great advan tage of being close to the city. "As practically all the land from the rifle range site to the Mochizuki b on. tQe makai side of the road is tne PrPerty of the territory, every effort 8Dould De made to secure to the public perpetual rights and full access to the ocean beach along this thor oughfare. "In submitting the annexed recom mendations we wouldi asw that, what ever decision the board of harbor commissioners may reach, in this mat ter, an official copy of same be Immediately sent to Lieut.-col. Chas. S. Bromwell for the Information of, and for the record files of the U. S. Engineers Corps, so that if possible uniformity of action between the ter ritorial and federal governments on this'lmportant subject may be secur ed." ' ' " .

Forbes, as enthusiastically ou : lined by him at the meeting of th harbor commission this morning. He brought it to the board's atten tion durlnsr the discussion of the j amusement pier project, which had led ' to a general talk of the famous beach's beautification, and though his plan was outlined only briefly it was pre sented so clearly and pncticably that the commissioners at once gave it their hearty individual indorsement. Chairman Forbes' idea is to require all property-owners throughout the length of the beach from Fort Arm strong to Diamond Head, to build a stone wall somewhere above the high water mark along a line which would be established by the territory's sur veyors, and then to give a stretch along it' running parallel with the seafront, to the big boulevard. This magnificent highway he would iave solidly and smoothly, so that it would be as nearly perfect as a driveway can' be made. It would become Honolulu's showplace and add, vastly to the fame of Waikiki. he declared. Commissioner C. J. McCarthy, who also is territorial treasurer, believes the scheme is feasible and the' other members agreed that if the financial part be solved the project is entirely oni mm ON eJUL'llV BEACH .A new chapter has been added to the romance of the pearliug schooner Jessie Fremont, now well knowu in Hawaiian waters. The new chapter is in perfect -sequence for. as the Jes sie Fremont led a skipper and three sailors out on the sea of adventure two months ago, the tale of the schoon er has now led a fanner of Clovis. California, to court fame as a ?eeker of pearls. The adventurous farmer would come to the "Honolulu Islands' and dive for pearls. The plans of the Clovis farmer are contained in a letter received today by Marshal J. J. Smiddy. They are brief and to the point. Having heard the tale of the Jessie Fremont, the farmer writes, he is anxious to put into use a pearl-diving apparatus in worthy. Entering thoroughly into the idea Col. McCarthy asserted the finan cial end of it could be handled If the people approved. The expense should lie borne by the county, the plan is, hut the territory could sell sufficient bonds for the county to cover its cost, then paying back on the bonds by making an ad ditional assessment of one or two mills a yeic on the dollar on assessed valu ation of property on Oahu. This would prove no strain on the county and the project could be paid for easily in 20 or 30 years' time. The stumbling block to the scheme at the outset is the financial one, however. To give a true idea of the project Chairman Forbes said that not only a blueprint should be drawn, but a large perspective made, with color ings, giving a hint of the wonders in natural beauty that can be wrought by the correct construction of a beach boulevard of this kind. The funds for this preparatory work, which he estimates wonld require four months for completion, must be raised by popular subscription, either by the citizens or by the business firms of the city. It is likely this inithl phase of the project will be started by the harbor commissioners within the next week or two. The proposition probably will not be ready to submit to the legislature this year. It suggests such a sweeping in novation .that much time will be need ed to figure out the details and it may not be in shape for official action by the county or territory for a. couple of years. . mm and use what's here for we, being good house keepers, recommend it highly for its goodness and the satisfaction it gives. t HAtTiViFI i -m . i w 49 ZJ38. b If you hire a cook, the sooner you insist on the use of BEST the sooner you'll have better bread, rolls and pastry HENRY MAY & CO., Distributor.
