Kauai Disapproves of Change in Status of Public Utilities Tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce hold a special meeting nt the Lihue i ourt house last Friday afternoon to consider tl. proposal that the powers of the Interstate Commerce Commission be delegated to a local commission. The chamber wont on record as opposing the charge and as favoring the present system. Feeling that the Interstate Com merce Commission Is possibly too far away to be of utmost service in local matters, Congress Is con sidering niakirg the change men tioned. Governor Farrir.gton was re quested to give his opinion ns to the wisdom of the change. He, in turn, asked tho various civic bod dies oi: tho difefrent islands to make suggestions. The resolution disapproving of tho change and favoring tho pres ent system, whereby the Interstate Commerce Commission has con trol over Hawaiian railways, tele phones and telegraph systems, and the local public utilities commission charge of tho lesser public utilities, was presented by R. D. Molor, man ager of the Lihue plantation. A. Englchard seconded the motion. Theor was' some discussion ns to the minor points of Mr. Moler's re solution, but tho wholo assembly was heartily In favor of tho spirit of tho petition and- It carried unani mously. The Chamber of Commerce of Ho nolulu took practically the same attitude towards tho matter as the local body, and there Is little doubt but that, if Hawaii's wishes aro re spected, tho bill advocating tho change will be killed ln Congress. The meeting being a special ses sion, other matters wore not decid ed but postponed until the regular meeting which is to bo hold next month.
