about raiting the grades of streets In
Kewalo and Knkaako. Tlio streeU II.
Kewalo hare never been accented and
cannot be until raised to grade. All tho
Executive can do Is to back up tho
Board of Health In refuting building
permits In that addition until the
'grades ar crnlscd and compliance made
generally with sanitary regulations.
V J,r' S'cCandlesa brought up a mat
AJter of partiality In the treatment of two
U steamship lines. Tho Pacific Mall has
( been charged wharfage, rent of coal
V itorago and pilotage right along, while
tho Oceanic has! paid no dues of these
kinds since 1S8C. This favor wnB part
of tho mall subsidy agreement with the
Oceanic line enacted by the Legisla
ture. It was decided In council that
the Oceanic Steamship Co. should pay
tho same charges as other companies
for prh lieges received alike, dating
from Juno 14, 1900, when nil mall ar
rangements came under tho control of
tho UnltecJ Stntcs Government.

The difficulty with the Oahu Railway

Tho wholesale trade of Honolulu has
declared a war of defense against com
mercial drummers from tho Mainland.
About 24 firms, practically all the lead
ing wholesalers and Jobbers, hnve slgi
ed a resolution formulated In confer
ence, to tho effect that they will place.
no orders with traveling salesmen.
Ed. H. Paris, secretary of commit
tee, is having tho resolution' printed.
What ho says of the matter covers all
tho several representatives of Import
ing houses have, said to a Iiullctln re
porter. "It Is not that wo aro shutting down
on traveling salesmen as such," says
Mr. Paris, "but upon tho methods they
have been pursuing.
"Probably CO to 100 drummers, rep
resenting manufacturers and whole
salers, come hero for business. Aftsr
securing tho legitimate trndo of local
importers. perhaps they aro dissatisfied
and go to the consumers for orders
so as to Increase their commissions.
They do not securo the business as a
rule, but by their quotations they an
tagonize locjil dealers and tho custom
ers of tho latter.
"These travelers do not pay tho high
business license that local houses do,
they have no stocks to carry, nor clcik
lilro or taxes to pay.
"In our rfHoliitlon wo do not say
e will withdraw our trndo from
houses we have been dealing with, but
only 'tlioHo. whoso agents quoto to our
customers and local consumers. The
signers reservo tho right to transact
business with manufacturers who hao
sole agents here."
Asked If anything was said about
making a test of the old Hnwnllan law
Imposing a license fee upon commercial
travelers selling "forolgn" merchan
dise, Mr, Paris said;
"No. We hayo an Impression that
the Interstate Commerce Act makes
that law void."

Jones Resigns as Chairman
and Boyd Is Elected.
Tho Republican delegates of the
Fourth District met, In the Republican
headquarters jestcrday forenoon for
the transaction of Important business.
As tho chairman, J, W. Jones, was ab
sent, Jos. II. Doyd called tho meeting
to order Mr. Boyd was mado tempor-J
nry chairman by unanimous vote,
The resignation of J. W. Jones as
chairman was read and accepted and
Mr. Doyd was chosen In his place. Mr.
Jones resigned on account of utreas
of work and Important duties In con
nection with the Republican campaign
In other lines.

ton and J. P. Cooko as delegates frnn
the "th Precinct of the Fourth Ills
trlct (Walmanalu and Kallua,) wcie
rend and accepted. Tho resignations
were sent In becniiso a Kcpubllcr.'.l
club had been formed nt Wnlmnnalo
and It was thought proper by tho men
concerned that that plaeo should ho
represented by Its own delegates.
Mr, Boyd told of tho formation of
tho club at Walmanalo and of tho elec
tion of J. Kalaukoa and J. Mnullnl.i,
as chairman and secretary, respective
ly. These two men wcro nomlnntcd as
delegates from tho 7th Precinct and
their election was unanimous.
Tho moit Important business of the
'meeting was tho consideration of the
eligibility of II. F. Dillingham as i
Senatorial candidate. Mr. Boyd ex
plained thnt Mr. Dillingham had not
registered and therefore he could not
run. This was unfortiinnto but, In or.
dcr to press forward tho work of the
Republican party, It would be neces
sary to choose n man to take his pln-'e.
Mr. Gear nnd ntherH counseled cau
tion In tho manner of proceeding and
urged that since thero did exist n ques
tion as to Mr. Dillingham's eligibility,
tho matter should bo submitted to '.ho
Supremo Court for nn opinion.
Various motions wero put nnd It was
finally decided to put tho matter be
fore tho Court. Messrs. Robertson,
Andrews nnd Genr were selected as a
committee to attend to this work and
