A very handsome display of cala
diums Is being made by S. M. Damon.
The plants are in the window of Mc
Inerny's shoo store on Fort street and
have been greatly admired. This dls-
play consists of between 25 and 30 of
. the latest varieties of caladlums. They
.Lwere Imported from London recently.
P The coloring of the caladlum Is es
pecially brilllanjt. This variety of
plant thrives much better In the Ha
waiian Island than It does In the Old
Country. The sunshine and warmer
climate are responsible for the de
velopment of the colors. The plants
are always much brighter and the
coloring much handsomer here than
even In England where the plants are
raised. The plants will be on exhibi
tion until Saturday. .Mr. Damon has
already a large number of these plants
and has one hot house devoted exclu
sively to them.
A varied assortment of hobos left
Honolulu this morning. They depart
ed on the transport Sheridan. They
did not ship and they did not go listed
as passengers. They stowed away.
How the bunch of "bums" got aboard
the vessel Is uncertain. There are
always more ways than one to accom
plish such a thing. They stowed them
selves on board and after the vessel
gets out of Honolulu they will no
doubt be unearthed from the coal
piles and various places of the ships.
The local authorities are probably
not adverse to the crowd getting away.
While the hoboes might have been
put to Jail to serve time such treat
' ment does not work to advantage for
after the man comes out of Jail he
finds It as difficult as before to get
away. With a man who is In hard
luck and unable to secure work, such
treatment has a- demoralizing effect,
and It frequently turns him Into a
criminal. Whenever the opportunity
'for a crowd leaving by a vessel pre
sents itself ,the police are probably

There were a number of larceny cases
on the police court calendar this morn

SAFETY OF CRIMES
The spread of that comparatively re
cent form of crime which consists In
transmitting poisoned .edibles to per
sons residing at a distance may yet
make necessary a considerable altera
tion of existing extradition laws. A
novel case In point Is brought up by the
effort to extradite Mrs. Sherman Dye
of Boone, Iowa, who Is accused of send
ing poisoned candy to M.lss Rena Nel
son ft Pierre, S. D. The governor of
South Dakota sought to extradite Mrs.
Dye, but Gov. Cummins of Iowa de
cllned to Issue the necessary papers
and It can scarcely be doubted that in
so doing he was acting In conformity
with the law.
The Idea underlying the extradition
law Is that the person to be extradited
is a fugitive from the state where the
crime was committed. The state hav
lng Jurisdiction In a murder case is the
state In which the victim meets his
death, even though the agency causing
death may have been set in motion else
where. Thus the alleged murder In the
present case was "committed" In South
Dakota, though the person accused had
never been In that state and is in no
sense a fugitive therefrom. She cannot
be sent there for trial, nor can she be
tried in Iowa. The fact that such a sit
uation Is likely to arise again, now that
the candy-poisoning device is becoming
a recognized method of homicide, sug
gests that some revision of the laws
will be unavoidable. Governor Cummins
seems to think that the emergency can
be met by eliminating certain "defects
In the Iowa state law. If so It would
be well for other states to see whether
similar action Is not necessary In the
case of their own statutes.
If a remedy cannot be found through
Independent action of state legislatures,
there must still be a recourse in the
federal government. The federal judi
cial power, according to the constitu
tion, extends to all controversies "be
tween twoor more states," and It would
seem that under that broad authoriza
tion the federal courts might establish
a ruling which would serve as a sure
and sufficient precedent Chicago Dally
Second and Last Concert of Greai Sir.g
er This Evening.
The farewell concert of Madame Slap
offskl takes place this evening at the
Opera House and Is sure to be a largely
attended affair. Honolulu Is extremely
cordial to genuine talent and has rec
ognized the almost certain brilliance of
the Australian artist's future after she
reaches the great American public.
Honolulu may hear her again some day
but will probably hear of her through
metropolitan successes before she again
appears on a local platform.
The sale of seats for this evening has
been large as aside from those who diJ
not hear Madame SlapqlTsKl at her first
appearance the many who did are eager
to duplicate their pleasure. The pro
gram offers a variety of attractiveness
which Is eminently calculated to display
the many talents of the young singer to
the full. Several gems have been chos
en from foreign grand operas and some
ballads new to Honolulu are also prom
ised. The seat sale will continue open
at Wall, Nichols Co., all day. The con
cert .will start at the usual hour. Mri.
Gerard Barton has been secured as the
accompanist, a fact upon which both

for Chinese interpreter, the same men officiating in the police court
Carter suggests only one Hawaiian interpreter, at $1,500 per year, and
$2,820 for pay of clerks and interpreters in the District Court.
Under this system the interpreting for the Circuit courts except in
Hawaiian, would be done on the fee system, an interpreter being sworn
in for each case and given a fee at a stated rate for services prformeel
out of the general sum for such a purpose.
Jury fees are left out altogether in Carter's plan, as suggested by
Judge Robinson. This is a feature of the plan which Judge De Bolt
strongly disapproved. Attorney A. G. M. Robertson has strongly,
criticized the whole plan, and it is thought that there will be opposition
Governor Carter cuts out one of the district magistrates of Hono
lulu. Instead of two, at $250 and $125 per month, he proposes one at
$200 per month.
Carter's recommendations provide for sweeping changes in the po
lice of Oahu. The provisions for captains, lieutenants, detectives, hack-
inspectors, mounted officers, bicycle
cers, etc., are all left out. There' is provision for a High Sheriff, two
Deputy High Sheriffs and two clerks, with Deputy Sheriffs for outside
districts, and a general provision of $88,800 for "pay of Oahu police."
A new appropriation is for "detective services," as follows: Oahu, $1,
800; Hawaii, $1,200; Maui, $600; Kauai, $600.
The old appropriation bill divided the Oahu services into threo
watches, with captains, lieutenants, clerks, etc., in each. This wholu

IE HOUSE GDTS UNDER CARTER
After tabling a resolution fixing the
salaries of officers on a basis fifty per
cent less than the pay of the last ses
sion, the House this morning went Into
committee of the whole and took uji
the salaries appropriation hill section
by section. At the start the lawmakers
began cutting under the governor's fig
ures, Kumalae leading with speeches In
favor of cutting "all alike."
The schedule of salaries of officers of
the House, suggested by Lewis, was as
Clerk, $6 per day; Interpreter, $5 per
day; Chaplain, $50 for the session; Ser-geant-at-Arms,
$4 per day; Messenger,
$3 per day; Janitor, $3 per day.
These figures are one-half of the last
schedule. Long moved to table the
proposition "for the present" and Lewis
consented. The motion carried, with
"straight" Republicans opposing It.
Andrade's bill for $10,000 ffcr expenses
of the session was passed on second
reading and then the general salaries
bill was taken up. Harris moved to take
It up In committee of. the whole. The
motion carried, and Speaker Beckley
invited him to take the chair. Harris
didn't want to and Chllllngworth was
also reluctant. Representative Long
consented and then the slashing of the
Governor's figures began, with the Ir
repressible Kumalae on his feet much
of the time talking with his usual
The first Item was $150 per month for
chief clerk of the Secretary's office.
Kumalae proposed reducing to $120.
"We ought to cut all alike," ho said.
"Some salaries are cut more than oth
ers. I was told In the Secretary's of
fice yosterday that the person who
holds this office receives perquisites of
$50 per month."
VI da said there were some salaries
which had not been cut and he wanted
all cut alike. "There are officers who,

he remarked. "Let them resign."

approved. Kumalae wanted to cut the
Treasurer from $300 to $250 per month.
The motion lost, and the Governor's es
timate of $3,C00 for the year passed.
Registrar Hapal's salary of $250 was
cut to $200 on motion of Vida. Book
keeper and deputy Insurance commis

was cui by Kumalae's motion to $100.
Corporation clerk at $80, stenographer
and typewriter at $75, and recording
clerk and messenger at $75, passed
without debate, for the treasury office,
and then Kumalae started a debate
over "salary of license cletk, $125."
Carter had cut out license inspector al
together and Kumalae wanted to make
the clerk Inspector.. His amendment
was lost and the Item passed as recom
mended. In the bureau of taxes, similar cuts
were made, Kumalae declaring ior a
uniform cut of twenty per cent. The
tax assessor's figures were cut from $223
to $200, Oahu assistant $175 to $160; first
Honolulu deputy, $150 to $120. "Kumalae

OF JHE WORLD
CHARLES J. GLIDDEN OF BOSTON
A FRIEND OF C. A. BROWN TO
Charles J. GUdden of Boston, an Inti
mate friend of C. A. Brown of Hono
lulu, who holds the long distance auto
mobile record, having driven 13,795
miles in 15 European countries and
across the Arctic Circle, has completed
his Itinerary for a proposed tour of the
world and computes the distance 20,000
miles by automobile. If war condi
tions will permit with Mrs. Glldden and
his engineer, Charles Thomas of Lon
don, he will start eastward about Octo
ber 1 of this year, and 365 days will bo
required to make the drive. On account
of the climate It Is probable that tho
Journey will be made In two sections,
the first terminating at Athens at the
end of this year; the party returning to
Boston and starting from Athens in Oc
tober,, 1905. This will bring them in the
warm equatorial climates at the proper
season of the year. Mr. Glldden hopes
to drive several miles In a country thai
will permit the crossing of the Equator
In longitude of about 100 east. He will
use the 24 horsepower Napier Car that
has the Arctic Circle record and already
about 10,000 miles of European driving.
Through an extensive correspondence,
arrangements have been made for gaso
line dlstrlution and supiJlies ait all
points and escorts where It may be
necessary for safety; also for 18000
miles steamship transportation for
passengers and automobile. The en
tire route has been carefully outlined
on mass of the countries to be visited
and miles are distributed about as fol
lows, the countries being mentioned In
order of travel.
England, 261, Franco 812, Spain, 800,
Portugal 500, Algeria, 1000, Tunis 46h.

Indies 300, China 100, Japan 2,500, Ha
waii 300, Unltdd States 4,000.
The roads of China are narrow and
totally unfit for -motoring outside of
Hong Kong and the restrictions Im
posed by the government make a drive
of any extent impossible. Of unusual
Interest will be the drive in Staln,
Portugal, Algeria far into the dersat
of Sahara, in Palestine and India
skirting the Himalayas; under the
feathedy bamboo and bread fruit
trees of eylon, or the Islands of the
East Indies and In the llowery kingdom
of Japan. If time will permit, and
climatic condltons are favorable, when
n the locality ,the Philippines will be
eluded n the schedule.
The department of agriculture should
get Patti to write a short article on
American frosts, to be distributed
among the eager farmers.
