. M"ENT TO MAKE NEW SURVEY.
iflilNE CANNOT BE DELAYED.
The cable dispatches from Washing
ton published this morning announce
that the Commercial Pacific Cable
Company had asked that the new sur
vey of the proposed cable route from
Honolulu to Guam and Manila via
Midway Island be tiunsforred to the
The cable dispatch failed to eluci
date the nature of the request by the
cable people or the reason for making
such n request. The dispatch means
Uuu there will be a delay In the com
pletion of Jhe cable from Honolulu to
Manila. How long this delay will be
is a matter of conjecture.
The route la perfectly satisfactory
for most of the way but the utmost
uncertainty exists regarding the route
In the vicinity of the Island of Guam.
In fact the surveys of the cable route
In that locality were not satisfactory
and until new surveys shall have been
made, the cable can not bo laid. The
cable company has evidently asked the
Navy Department to survey a new
route for them. Portions of the cable
will no iloubt be laid but there is lit
tle probabllty that the cable company
will lay any cable In the vicinity of
The route from this place to' Mid
way is all right. It will bo clear sail
ing for the cable engineers. From
Midway up to a point within about
COO miles north east of Guam, the
route is also good but from that point
on, the ocean's bottom is of sucn a na
ture that It would be folly apparently
to 'attempt to lay the cable.
There are depths teaching over 5.000
fathoms while In close proximity there
are peaks that are only 750 fathoms
below the surface of the ocean. The
cable has to He on the bottom for It
can not bo suspended from one peak
to another. It Is necessary to find
new rout'os to avoid these depths. The
cable company has therefore appealed
to the Navy Department to aid them
In the matter.
It is very probable that there will be
no delay In laying portions of the ca
ble. The line can be laid from Ma
nila to Guam and from Honolulu to
Midway and from Midway to the
neighborhood of the deep places. The
cables would no doubt be buoyed In
that locallt- until after the new route
can be found. It will require a long
time however. At the present time
the company is entirely at sea and will
probablv be so until after the result of
the surveys will have been learned.
THE WALDORF COMPANY.
The Wnldorf Companv should be
seen at their best tonlcht in Bur
mand's farclal comedy "The Lady of
Ostend." It Is said to be a rarely rol
licking comedy the plot depending on
the troubles of a man who Is taken
In a cimeniotogrnnh picture while in a
compromising position with a lady on
the beach 'it Ostend. When the play
begns we find the unfortunate victim
Innocently taking his wife and
mother-in-law to a street show where
the picture Is being exhibited. Here
the band begins. Miss Waldorf and
lier company created quite a flutter of
excitement in the east with this play
which seems to be something quite
nut of the way. There will no doubt
bo a large audience ot the opera house
tonight to enjoy a good lnugh.
On Saturday the company will ap
near In the Nnpolponlc drama "A
Roval Divorce" for which the box plan
Is now open. The curtain rises each
evening at a quarter past eight by
which time the 'audience are respect
fully requosted by the management to
be in their seats.

Quite a discussion ensued in the Senate this morning over an
amendment offered by Senator Isenberg to defray the expenses
of a second entomologist. The amendment was offered to -the,
Appropriation Bill which was up for consideration on second
reading. Senator Isenberg and Senator Baldwin spoke of the
necessity of affording further protection to the small farmer and
other interests by protecting them from the insect blights.
The opinion of some of the members seemed to be that the
agriculture and kindred matters Should be taken under contro
by the Federal Government. The various items for this portion
of the bill were referred to a special committee consisting of Sen
ators Isenberg, Baldwin and Kalauokalani for a further report.
Another amendment to the bill knocked out the appropriation
of $1,200 for the salary of electrical inspector.
Senator Baldwin for the Ways and Means Committee reported
adversely on the bill to grant liquor licenses' to grocery stores
doing an annual business of $100,000. The senator said it .yould
be an injustice to the saloons that paid a $1,000 yearly, license and
to the small grocery stores as well. The report will be considered
with the bill.
It was also reported by this committee that the bill paying
jurors 5 cents a mile be amended to 10 cents a mile.
Senator McCandlcss gave notice pf intention of introducing a
bill to knock out the law which awarded jurors $1 for a verdict.
He considered that this savored of bribery of jurors.
Senator Kaiue presented a set of regulations signed at a mass
meeting by Wailuku people asking for various changes in the
county bill. The requests by this petition were that the schools
be placed under control of the counties; that district magistrates
be elected; that the offices of assessor'and collector be consolidat
ed; that prisoners sentenced to 10 years imprisonment be confined
in county jails and prisoners sentenced to longer periods be con
fined in Oaliu prison; that all officeholders except high school
, principals or government physicians, be required to reside in the
territory three years before being eligible to office; that com
pensation for the board of supervisors be fixed by them; that the
legislature fix the property tax; that the government physicians
be under the control of the counties but be paid by the territory.
This petition was referred to the County committee.
A petition signed by 145 people asking that the government
acquire the springs at Pauoa was referred to a special committee
together with the water works in that section.
A communication was received from Treasurer Kepoikai giv
ing the Senate pursuant to its request, the amounts received by
the Territory from all sources during the year just closed. The
following were the amounts: Oahu, $1,370,341.17; I-Iawaii,$528,-188;
Maui, $230,413; Kauai, $214,990.75; Molokai, $8,001.31, and
A communication was also received from Secretary Carter an
nouncing that the Governor had signed the special fire claims
appropriation bill yesterday.
