A no salary has been provided for such deputy and no provision made for the expenses of the office for account books, blanks and stationery, I recom mend that Items be Inserted In the proper appropriation bills covering such needs, tor the 21 months from Oc tober 1st, 1903. " I renew my suggestion for a Statis tical Bureau In the Department of the Secretary of the 'Territory, and recom mend that items be inserted In the ap propriation bills for salary of Statis tician and for the necessary expenses of the office. The public lands known as Pupukea and Paumalu on the Island of Oahu are suitable for settlement purposes. It Is necessary In order to make them avail able for this use, that at least two roads should be constructed leading up the bluff into these lands from the line of the Tailroad near the seashore. I recommend that an Item be Insert ed in the appropriation bill for current expenses or in the loan appropriations for this object. I further recommend the appropria tion of funds for advertising on. the mainland, such public lands as may from time to time be opened for set tlement In Hawall-nel and for expenses of agents to promote Immigration from the mainland for the settlement thereof. Also an appropriation for expense of Investigating the condition and possi bilities of the soils of public lands. both by soil analysis and experimental cultivation of different crops, with tne view of furnishing definite Information on the subject to Intending settlers. Also an appropriation for salaries and commissions of Deputy Tax Assessors and Collectors, the estimate for Which was inadvertently omitted from the Treasurer's estimates for the first six months of the coming biennial period.

Addresses were mado uy United States Senator HeveridgefASiUstatit Secretary of ar San ger, Governor Durbin and others, Mr. Sanger said in part: The federal government, in accepting these monuments, becomes charged with the duty of guarding them and keeping fresh in the memory of the people a record of the deeds which they commemorate. -In creating and keeping these national parks the country is tiot merely perpetuating the fame of brave men, it is not merely recording with landmarks ol granite and bronnc tne part wincn the gallant soldiers on both sides took in the awful contests ot the civil war, it is not emphasizing the fact that a united country thinks with pride of the valor of all the heroes' ?ho fought in that great struggle, but it is putting into visible form theUoriyiction of the people that ex amples of brave and faithful performan'c of duty shoiild be ever honor ed throughout our land. We should netar forget that the lessons of war are but imperfectly learned if wothmk of them as only helping us to bear ourselves bravely in the face of an armed enemy. " In tunes of peace there are battles to be fought and victories to be won, the effect of which upon the destinies of mankind are as far-reaching as the re sults of an armed conflict. Honor, courage, integrity, devotion to prin ciple and the faithful performance of duty are just as essential to the greatness of a free people as courage and self-sacrifice are to the suc cess of a fighting army. The principles upon which our gbvernnicnt rests do not of them selves insure good government; they merely give to the people the power to have that kind of governtnnet which the people desire, and they can make it as good or as bad as thev wish. As patriotic Amer icans we should not be discouraged because there is need in so many directions for faithful and effective work in improving existing condi tions. From these impressive scenes we can draw in-Spiration and help for the better performance of the dutiffs which crowd upon us as Amer ican citizens. The memory of the brave soldiers who fought on this and other battlefields will never die, for so long as the country endures their example will help the men and women in the years yet to come to strive courageously toward that high standard to which every American should aspire. , Senator Bevcridge said in part: ''Since all must die, how fortunate to die for an undying cause and under the approving eye of history. "So felt those who fell upon this field: For thev gave their lives to save the life of the nation; and histor recites no nobler storv than the story of their sacrifice. "iheir blood was shed. to make t'hcfAmenean people a single nation and not for any lesser 'purpose. All other results of the' civil war were incident to that. And so thev died no lessMOr the people ot tne soutn than for the people of the north for tlie'American people undivided, in divisible. Their martyrdom was to establish forever the brotherhood of the flag a relationship so lofty that it cannot see sections within the boundaries of the republic. "That great purpose they accomplished. Devotion to the nation is today the first principle of all Americans, -jit is now the idea a.irijfideal of us all, men and women of north and sotjfli alike. "How little those words southern and. northern. Let us forget them. How much grander the sinerlc word' America. Let us think of that and only that. It is the word the' spirits of our heroes whisper to our souls today. It is the word for which they gave up their mortality. Let its who live be worthy of our death "And let' us who live be tolerant of the views of those heroes of the other side who died before the guns' of ourheroes here and elsewhere. Only the years' can tell what minor elements of just opinion were con fused and tangled in that cataclysms conflict. For us it is enough a fullness to know that our central thought of nationality was tr k- and that our brothers of the other side assert it now, even as we otlrselxcs assert it. "Hut when men die for ideas, Who dare denounce then all and utter ly? The loftiest quality of human character is toleranc. the loftiest but one, and that one justice. Tolerance then and loving kindness and charitable forgiveness on both sides and through all the- laud sweet rea sonableness. Nothing but-these are important, for in these abide truth, and truth is the only sovereign." THE MAGNITUDE OF "PAKA PIO l niitimu'd from pnfi one l. characters may be marked. To win on these ticket, the player muMf have this proportion of correct guesses in certain groups. Then tharc are "King" tickets, costing high, on which one particular spot tituong; those marked is a specinlly high winner. According to Tong Kai, there were 25 men in the luti that wanted tr begin business under the protection of the Attorney General's Depart ment, and the hui would have employed about 300 men. The latter would have been selling agents. They would make regular rounds every morning and afternoon, selling tickets and bringing the drawings to the purchasers. For this they get a percentage of the money they take in for the lottery. The twcnty-five-inembers of the h'ui apparently expected to pay these commissions, give up $6,000 a month to the At torney General's Department and still make money out of four paka, pio banks. The ticket printed in today's Star is a sample of the paka pio ticket. It is from a ticket bought and played by the Attorney General. He marked five characters on the third line from the top and five on the second line of the lower half, and the ticket was duly made out. dated and signed by the banker. The most interesting feature remaining in the bribery case is Tong's statement that bribery had been successful in the past. Tong state that the former rates had been $1,300, $1,600 and $2,000 a week, accord ing to the number of games running. The question now being investi gated is "Where did this money go?" Attorney General Andrews stat ed this morning that this matter was being investigated, but that ha could not say that anything had yet been discovered. "The way in which the proposition is stated," said former Deputy Attorney General Cathcart, "seems to be . n insinuation that there was a fund used under the former administration of the department. As a matter of fact gambling cases never got to the upper office at all. The new situation, which made it necessary for the Chinese, to fix the upper office, developed when Attorney General Andrews took hold of the gambling proposition personally." It is estimated that over 5,000 tickets a day might be sold among thu Chinese, natives and white mn who patronize the. games. If they only averaged 25 cents each this would be $22,250 a month, while at an av erage of $1 each, which is thought by many to be nearer the mark, as many Chinese play heavy sums, the income of the banks would be tre mendous. The case of Tong Kai will be brought before the grand jury nexf Thursday, the jury having adjourned to that time. It is cxnected that he will be indicted for attempted bribery, and the case will be a hard lought one. I lie men behind him, according to those who claim to be well informed, are moneyed men and are willing to move heaven and earth to get their representative clear. :o: TO COLLECT FROM JO K SUMNER tut Drought For a Balance Due Attorney Le Blond Accused o4 Neglect. , Expenses of Investigating the condition and possiuuitles of the soil of public lands 5,000.00 Overpayment by Klnl Koukou la w. on land purchase 10.45 SA'NFORD B.
