Tho Territory of Hawaii will have to
pay the expenses of Its legislature ses
sions aa do other respectable territories
of tho Union. There was a question
on tho point, however, owing to the
necullnr wording- of tho Organic Act,
and Secretary Cooper In January
wrote the Secretary of the Interior re
garding tho matter. The reply, wnicn
is a telegram received Saturday, also
informs tho Secretary as to how he
will report the proceedings of the leg

The Territorial government will prob
ably buy the land In Nuuanu valley
upon which the electric light station Is
situated. Twelve years ago the mon
archy obtained from Joseph Marsden a
fifty years lease of the land at an annual-
rental of $400. In the lease, how
ever. Is a clause providing that any
time the government may desire to
purchase the property It may do so fbr
the sum of $8,000. It now turns out that
property has advanced so much In
-value that the lot Is a little gold mine,
worth many times as much as the fig
ures fixed in 1S88. Superintendent Mc
Candless suggested to tho executive
meeting this morning that It would be
a good Idea to buy the-land. The mem

Bough Weather Still Interferes With
Many passengers gathered at the Inter-Island
wharf this morning early
hoping that after four or five postpone
ments of her departure the steamer
Mauna Loa would at last leave for La-
halna, Kona and Kau. But they were
disappointed again. The Ke Au Hou's
reports of rough weather at the wind
ward Islands and the evident continu
ance of storm here resulted In a deci
sion to postpone the sailing until S
o'clock tomorrow morning. The assem
bled passengers waited while President
Ena , Captain Slmerson and Captain
Haglund held a conference on the sub
ject and went home grumbling when
the decision was given out. The wait
ing Is a great Inconvenience to many
people who have been anxious for some
days to go to Maul and Kona, but It Is
considered better than starting and be
ing unable to land.
Captain Slmerson was quite certain
that Lahalna would be unapproachable
and he would have left Maui out and
steamed to Kona.
At last reports the Ktnau was In HUo.
She was to leave there this morning
and will probably arrive in Honolulu
tomorrow. She is reported to nave left
out Maul on the upward run trans
ferring Maul passengers to the Clau
dlne, whose run is on the side of the
Island that is smoother during storm
from the south.
The Ke Au Hou had a very hard trip
down. Seas broke over her almost con
tinuously. She had three deck pas
sengers and a bad time they hau. They
were drenched all the way ana could
only hang on and wait for the journey's

A Steamer That Passed Honolulu Yes
terday. "R. F. L. H." is a signal that has
been puzzling many people on the wa
ter front since yesterday. According
to the reading of the lookout at Dia
mond Head, It was displayed by a
British steamer that came up from
the south in tho morning and passed
by without stopping. There does not
appear to be a code In town, however,
In which the signal appears and the
name of the vessel Is not known, This
Is either because Honolulu has no up-to-date
signal book and the steamer
Is a new one, or because the signal
was not read correctly.
Tho passing steamer may have been
the Bloemfonteln, which Is trading be
tween Australia and the Sound and re
cently passed through hero with a, car
go of lumber, or the Carlisle 'City,
which Is In tho same trade. The un
known vessel was sighted shortly after
daylight and the whistles wore blown
for her. She did not slow down as she
went by however. She was probably
a good deal out of her course.

CHINESE III! DRAMA
Dr. Chapman of Anti-Saloon League
Explains the Purposes of Organiza
tionProposed Dispensary Law.
The plans of the Anti-Saloon League
have been unfolded. Rev. Dr. S. E.
Chapman presented the whole subject
to a meeting of the Ministerial Uni6n,
called to hear him at Central Union
Church this morning. In addition to
the members of the Union, Invitations
had been sent out to a number of other
clergymen and others interested in' the
general subject. About thirty or forty
people were present to hear him, about
half of whom were women.
Rev. A. E. Cory presided. He stated
the object of the meeting and introduc
ed Dr. Chapman.
Dr. Chapman entered immediately In
to a discussion of his subject. Much of
his address was as follows:
"It Is now six or seven years since the
anti-saloon movement was organized.
It had Its Inception at a meeting In
Oberlln called for another purpose.
Some one asked the question why tem
perance could not unite as lle people
interested In the traffic do? That
"why" Is a very Important question to
answer. This is an Important matter
and there must be a reason why.
"The men interested in the traffic are
united. They may be Republicans or
Democrats or Populists. But when It
comes to their business, they have no
politics or 'religion.
"The Grizzly bear Is a good symbol of
the liquor- traffic. The grizzly bear Is
the gentlest sort of a creature around
your camp. It will sniff about and
play about and won't hurt you until
you lilt It. Then Its a different sort of
a creature. That's the way with the
liquor traffic. In Its expressions It is
well mannered and gentle until it Is
hit. It don't object very seriously to
the meetings of the W. C. T. U., or even
very widespread agitation resulting in
pledge signing. Of course they would
rather not have these things. But they
don't seriously object to them. I do not
disparage these efforts. I have been
identified with them for years and am
it don't make much rtifrprpnro where
y0u hit It. The traffic is so united that
If you attack It In one place the whole
strength of the organization Is thrown
"Why we had a harder fight at Long
Beach where there was only one sa
loon, that we did at Santa Monica
wheje there were a number of saloons.
The liquor power vns determined that
there should be no beach resort- In Cali
fornia where' liquor Was' not allowed to
be sold. Long Beach was a nicely lo
cated place the land of which was
bought up by christian people as a
place where they could hold their Cha-
taquas, and where the better class of
people could go for an outing. The
deeds to this property contained a
clause prohibiting the liquor traffic.
But there were two or three lots that
had been previously sold that did not
contain this prohibition. But last
spring we secured a victory there.
"Now at this Oberlln conference it
was asked why temperance people were
not united as the liquor people were?
And It was discovered that temperance
people raised too many Issues. They
divided on too many questions. Some
were In favor of constitutional prohibi
tion nnd some of legislative prohibition.
Some want a separate party and some
don't. But it was found that there was
one thing on which they could all unite
and that was summed up in the Watch
word the movement took, "The Saloon
"The truth is that christian people
have not found out their strength until
this anti-saloon movement showed It
to them. I say to you as I have said
to people In other states and territories,
the christian people can put nn end to
the saloon any day they choose to. Act
ing on this plan of uniting all who are
opposed to the saloon, the anti-saloon
element controlled the organization of
me iinver House in me unio legislature,
and failed to pass the bill they asked
for by only three votes. They would
have passed tho bill by a. majority of
five In both houses, hut that both
Senator Hanna nnd Senator Foraker
entered the contest nt the lost moment
and turned tho scale against them."
Dr. Chapman referred to the move
ment which had resulted In the over
whelming defeat of Roberts to entet
Congress. It had been accomplished he
declnred by the wives and mothers of
this coutnry. Touching upon tho suc
cess of the movement against the army
canteen he continued "Tho Administra
tion was committed to the ennteen. The
power of the Administration and the
party In power was pledged In favor
of the canteen. Committees from both
houses hnd reported In favor of It but
the movement against the measure re
sulted In the canteen being defeated by
nn overwhelming vote in both houses,
nlthough the great papers hod ridiculed
tho peoplo who had opposed It In the
House. This victory was gained by
tho sterling men who looked the Ad
ministration In tho face nnd opposed
the pnrtv In power In Its attempt to
force this Iniquitous thing upon the
"I have been In political life for I was
the private secretary to a congress
man and I know what Is behind the
rcenes In political life. I will suy that
peoplo must not think that candidates
do not care for what they think will
be approved by the people who elected
them. The very first thing which nn
olllco holder does Is to Intrench himself
and If there is anything which he hates
to see It Is his successor unless he him
self Is advanced to some higher office.
"While I am not well acquainted
with tho condition of affairs hero I will
say that what tho Hawaiian Islands
needs Is concentration of the ballots a
concentration upon the best candidates,
Irrespective of party affiliations."
The speaker told of conditions In
Wyoming where tho women were per
mitted to vote. Ho said that during
his observations In that state ho had
not seen the women attend nny poli

remained at homu rocking the cradle
but when the time for voting enmo they
knew who to vote for. The result was

JUDGE WILCOX MAY REFUSE TO
Allows Only Two Dayt Postponement
As The Complaining Witness is Said
To Be Able to Appear.
Judge Wilcox this morning refused
to grant a postponement of one week,
on request of the prosecution, In the
Gill case and Intimated that lie might
refuse to hear the case at all, Insisting
instead that the matter be brought be
fore the Grand Jury at once. The Judge
postponed the hearing until Wednes
day morning, Intimating that In his
opinion the complaining witness would
be able to appear In court then. His
honor had been making Inquiries and
he stated that he had been informed
that Stevens was already able to be up
and about In the hospital.
Deputy Sheriff Chilllngworth asked
for the postponement, saying that he
had been Informed that Mr. Stevens
was still confined to the hospital
and would probably not be able
to appear until the end of the week or
hitpr. Attnrnpv TTnnkpv for th. ilp.
fense made no objections, but the Judge
( had objections of his own.
I may decline to hear this case at
all," said Judge Wilcox, "The Grand
Jury is now In session, nnd I do not
see why I should go through all the
testimony for nothing, when the same
ground will all have to be gone over
again before the Grand Jury. In fact
I am informed that a complaint has al
ready been brought before the Grand
Jury In the case. No purpose Is an
swered by my doing what the Grand
Jury will hnve to do in any case."
Judge Wilcox as a committing ma
gistrate in such n case could only order
the defendant held for trial before a
jury. If he should do this It would still
be the province of the Grand Jury to
Inquire Into the case and find an Indict
ment, should the evidence he held to
warrant so doing.
"I have been making some Inquiries
myself," continued the Judge, "und I
hear that the complaining witness Is
able to get up nnd move nbout the hos
pital and the grounds. I do not say
this is so, but It Is what I am Informed.
I shall continue this case until next
Wednesdny morning, and we shall see
what to do then."
Deputy Sheriff Chilllngworth nsked
that the name of Lorrln A. Andrews bo
entered as assisting the prosecution in
the case and this was done.
Stevens Is doing very well nt the hos
pital. Ha has been nble to get up for a
time, as stated by the Judge, and bar
ring the dangers of blood-poisoning he
will soon be at work again.
