The Queen's Hospital Owns Its Buildings and
Site With Valuable Adjoining Lands on
Tim Oueen'a hosnltnl Is not so utterly
cast down by tho ltooko decision as
erroneous statements Imvo given tho
In tho first plnco, tho hospital build

decision. They were not in Queen
Emmn's inheritance from Dr. T. C. I).
Hooke, who, by tho way, was her step
father nnd not her husband. The Im
mediate building site was set apart by
Kameharaeha 1V tho husband of
Queen Emma and by whom sho had her
rcgnl title, for hospital purposes. Tho
land adjoining on tho KInnu street
sldo Is Crown land held under a 100

serious loss of revenuo by tho pnsslng
out of the hands of tho Trustees of the
valuable properties awarded to Colonel
C. K. C. Itooke, the nephew nnd heir
of tho Into Dr. Itooke. These comprise
tho so-called French hotel premises
containing Wright's carriago works,
tho valuablo Queen Emma homestead
at Nuuanu and Deretnnla streets, the
Ntninnu. valley property and some
holding or holdings in South street.
Yet hitherto these properties, owing to
tho known cloud of title, havo been
less profitablo than might otherwise
havo been tho case. It was Impossible,
or at least Inexpedient, to obtain leases
therefor. Thero wcro heavy expenses,
moreover, In keeping up tho proper

tho Queen Emma residence. It would
long ago havo fallen to pieces.
Dr. Rooko has, in the opinion of ex
perts, really benefitted by tho fifteen
years of delay, slnco Queen Emma's
death, In coming Into his own. Until

Owing to tho largo labor which

Cohen made a complaint at the po

that, while walking across tho deck
of tho C. D. Bryant last evening to got
to tho Ceylon, moored alongside, the
dog of tho former vessel took a pleco
out of his trousers. Ills dcslro was to
got n warrant out for Captain Colly
but, ns tho dog was on tho Uyrnnt and
not roaming abroad, Marshal Drown
could do nothing. Ho advised tho fel

try to get him to fix It up.
HOW SALARIES WILL BE PAID
The question having arisen nB to pro
visions for tho offices of Territorial
Treasurer, Superintendent of Public
Works, nnd Superintendent of Public
Instruction under tho Territory, In
quiries wcro mado of dlttcrcnt mem
bers of tho Exccutlvo regarding the
matter. Who will appoint and how
will tho salaries of tho new offices be
authorized? were some of the questions
nsked. Would It be necessary to call
a special session of the Legislature and
would this likely be tho policy of the
new Government? President Dole,
when first spoken to, said that ho could
not answer any questions as to the fu
ture Government, as ho did not yet
known that ho would bo tho Territorial
Governor. Nothing ofilcial was known
about appointments nnd it would be
premature to express an opinion before
something delinlto was received.
Minister Mott-Smlth said he had
been so busy that ho had not hnd time
to glvo the questions raised any
thought. In fact tho questions had not
presented themselves; when they
camo up they could bo considered and
ho had no doubt they would be. Ills
present opinion was that Section G2
of tho Territorial Bill covered tho caso
nnd allows tho President to pay tho
salaries of tho new officers; tho Gov
ernor would appoint them.
Minister Cooper was absent ut Ewa
nnd could not be seen. Minister Da
mon said that tho new Governor was
tho mnn to answer tho questions and
that ho referred tho matter to him.
President Dole said he had given somo
thought to tho subject. Thero was a
provision In tho Territorial Bill giving
tho President of tho United States au
thority to direct tho expending of mon
ey for necessary purposes of govern
ment until tho Territorial Legislature
could mnko other provision. Ho pre
sumed that salaries would be payablo
under such authorization.

Thanks Business Hen for Opposing
Opportunities for Trade Between Hawaii and
the Sound-Say, Hawaii Will Patronize
Seattle Sugar R-Dnery.
Tho Seattle P.-l. of April 26 says;
Seattle's opportunities fr getting
trade with Hawaii wcro spoken of be
fore the Chamber of Commerco yester
day by C. G. Ballcntyne, manager of
tho Honolulu Rapid Transit Company,
Mr. Ballcntyne appeared at a special
meeting of that body Tuesday for tho
purposo of getting Its Indorsement of
tho reinstatement of tho provision In
tho Hawaiian measures extending tho
time of the effectiveness of tho coast
ing laws a year after tho adoption of
tho net, nnd yesterday stated that tho
conference committee of tho Senate
and Houso had refused to so reinstate
it, which would mako -ao coastwise
laws go Into cfTect nt tho snmo tlmo ns
the bill forty-live days after passage.
"There Is nothing moro that can bo
done," said Mr. Ballcntyne, and ho
oxprcssed his thanks for tho interest
that the chamber had taken In tho mnt
tcr. "I appreciate tho Interest you
hnvo shown," ho said, and continuing
on tho trade outlook:
"Our pcoplo want to trado with you,
and If you will "glvo them tho oppor
tunity thero Is a good field In the Isl
ands for Washington exporters and
Importers. There Is much room for tho
development of trndo for the principal
exports now nru fodder and timber.
Thero Is tho opportunity of sending
supplies of fresh meat, which Is now
supplied from San Francisco nnd New
Zealand. In caso of tho latter, as soon
as tho new law goes Into effect It will
of course cut off tho supply from there.
Tho grazing lands near Honolulu have
been turned Into sugar plantations,
which leaves that city dependent upon
tha outsldo for her fresh meat supply.
Thero will bo also a heavy trade In
dairy products, which now come large
ly fiom Australia. I sco no reason why
you should not get your sharo of this
trade, and when you are competing
with San Francisco It will mako tho
goods cheaper for us."
Mr. Ballentync advised tho estab
lishment of n sugar refinery in Seattle,
which he said would bo suro to bring
much of the sugar crop of the Islands
to this port. IIo said the growers
were anxious to get away from the su
gar trust, but wero forced to keep to
their contracts, though when these
agreements expired, which would bo
soon, they would bo glad of an oppor
tunity to transfer their business deal
ings to others. Ho said that If n re
finery was built hero It would In n
largo mcasuro scttlo the proposition of
vessels being run nt n profit, us It
would glvo them return cargoes.
The chamber gao a vote of thanks
to Mr. Ilallcntyuo for his suggestions.
CHURCH AND CITY.)
Editor Evening Bulletin: In his ad
dress Kcv. Mr. Klncald said that In the
United States nro 10,000,000 persons
of voting ngo who "novcr darkened
tho doors of a church." Now to get
down to an effort for result let mo In
qulro If It wero not better to reform
or reorgnnlzo the church rather than
tho government of tho municipality.
Rev. Mr. Klncald seemed to rather
stand for his quotation from Shaw that
American cities wero tho worst man
aged on earth excepting Uiobo of Tur
key and China. Now If this bo correct
tho church will do moro for humanity
by going In for municipal reform than
by continuing along the lines that keep
ho many people away from the houses
