DISCUSSION OF SYSTEM BY THE INSPECTOR People Entitled to Safety Devices Duties of Property Owners Comparative Sacurity With Overhead WireMeters. When government Inspection ol electric conductors was determined upon recently at the suggestion of n coroner's Jury, the difficulty to bo faced was the absence of legislation on tho subject. While street franchises gave inspectorial powers to the government over outdoor wiring, thero was llttlo or nothing In the laws to afford con trol oc- Indoor wiring. Protection to llfo and property within buildings was, however, provided to a limited extont by tho inspection of the Hoard of Un dcrwrlters. Property owners submit ted to this Inspection from self-Inter est, as without It they could not obtain most favored rates of fire Insurance. After careful deliberation J. II. Uoyd, Superintendent of Tubllc Works, and W. F. C. Hasson, nppolntcd to the now onlco of Government Electrical Inspec tor, devised a scheme of Inspection the best they could without Bpeclflc lcgls latlon. The Inspector has been given headquarters In tho lower tower room to the right of the front entrance of tho Capitol. Inspector Hasson this morning talk ed to a Ilulletln reporter about tho work of his bureau. "The object of In spection Is threefold," said the Inspec tor. "First, the convenience of tho pub lic; secondly, tho safety of the public: thirdly, consideration of the rights of Invested capital. "As to public convenience The pub lic demands rapid transit and electric light and power. There Is hazard In these utilities and the only thing wu enn do Is to reduce that hazard to tho smallest possible amount "There are threo causes of hazard. First Is tho multiplicity of overhead lines In tne body of the city. Second tho large amount of careless and flimsy construction of lines that do not themselves carry dangerous currents Third, tho large amount of foliage. "The danger to life and property does not arise so much from tho high potential energy used In electric light and power circuits as It does from the posslblo crossing of those circuits with telephone and signal lines, which nro uninsulated and much more llablo to come down In stormy weather. Dur Ing the storms that occur In tho fall of nearly every year, the fieavly follago becomes so -weighted with molsturo that It bears down upon the wires, however clear they may be In (try weather. Whenever grounds occur on liqjh circuits of the high potential elec tric wires, thero Is possibility of a dan gerous shock being received on the low potential secondary circuits, which un der ordinary circumstances will not give a harmful shock. "Tho government Inspection will ex tend over all lines occupying roads and highways from power houses or central stations to protective devices that should be placed upon tho premises of users of electric light, power or tele phones. Thero are cfllclont devices that thoroughly piotcct the circuits In sldi' of houses from the heavy currents on tho main lines, und It Is the duty of property holders to notify tho gov ernment Inspector If theso devices nru lacking. As it Is also (heir duty tn seo that tho lines passing through their grounds aie kept clear of trees. "It would bo Impossible to remodel the various electric systems using tho streets of Honolulu all at once, owing to the Indiscriminate growth of elec trical business which has taken place within the past few years. All new lines will, however, bo erected and equipped under government Inspection, The rational and the satisfactory meth od, the one that must finally he adopt ed, Is that of placing all electric con ductors that can go underground In conduits. This, however, Is an expen sive process, especially In a scattered community, and tho question arlsea whether or how soon the demands for servlco will stand such a change "With proper poles nnd stablo con struction the hazard to life nnd prop erty can ho reduced to n minimum. This will ho tho effort of government Inspection. "All electric wiring In houses should, as a matter of insurance nlnnc. bo In spected beforo tho ,house circuits am connected with tho street circuits. Tho rules for this class of wiring havo been determined with much enre by the In surance companies, and rules and regu latlons concerning such work can be obtained at tho ofllce of tho govern ment Inspector." , Mr. Hasson desired to say a word on tho subject of meters, which had lately como up for public discussion, "The question of tho accuracy of the electric meter has been raised, and to the ordl nnry lnyman tho meter Is a very mys terious machine," ho said and continu ed : 'It Is a fact that electricity cna be measured with greater accuracy than any other form of power. Tho electric meter properly adjusted gives a moro accurate record than any other record ing Instrument. No branch of civil or mechanical engineering In which meas urements are made have this dono with such accuracy as electrical machines. Any person may readily learn to read an electric meter, "The Incandescent lamps In ordinary use should consume from SO to CO watts an hour, and each hour that a 16 can dle power Incandescent lamp Is In use costs the user about one and a quarter cents. Ily keeping a record of the num ber of lamps and the number of hours each lamp Is burning and comparing this with tho reading of tho meter any user of electric light can easily deter mine whether tho record of the meter Is correct or not. "Tho government Is not at the prcs cnt tlmo prepared to meet tho expense attendant on tho establishment of u meter-testing service, but nny person desiring Information can obtain It on application at tho Inspector's ofllce." Washington, Jan. 21. Tho President today nominated Dr. Pteslcy M. Illxcy to bo Surgeon General of tho Navy. I HAS FINE PASSAGE FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO FORT A.

STATUS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM HAWAII RESIDENTS Distinguishing Between Chinese and Half Caste3 Philippines Bridge for Easy Entrance. Washington, Jan. 20. A meeting of tho Senate Committee on Immigration Is to be held tomorrow to consider the Chinese exclusion bills. Thero will be a largo delegation of traders, manufac Hirers and their representatives on hand to argue against excluding Chi; ncso merchants. Among tho associa tions represented will be the Japanese and Chinese Trading Association of New York; American-Asiatic Associa tion of New York and New England Cotton Manufacturers' Association, North and South Carolina cotton men arc also represented. The most promi nent advocate of the liberal admission of Chinese will be Cornelius N. llllss, who will speak In behalf of the New York associations. Charles S. Hamlin pf Iloston, ex-Asslstnnt Secretary, of tho Treasury, will speak for the New Englanders, Chairman Penrose invited the Cali fornia Commission, President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor und other exclusion advocates to attend the hearing and make reply If they saw fit. The California Commission ac cepted the Invitation, and will be present, but decided not to attempt to reply tomorrow, ns the hearing will cover several days. The Callfornians and labor people say they will taka notes nnd deliver a general broadside against the commercial Interests that would subject American labor to Chi nese competition, Tho question of the status of the Chinese In the Philippines Is regarded as certain to glvo rise to complications in enacting exclusive legislation. Thft Pacific Coast representatives think that a way must be found to keep the Chinese from coming from the Islands, In tho bills of Senator Lodge and Rep resentative Cooper, providing civil government for the Islands, n sort of citizenship Is quoted among these peo ple, who were living In the Islands at tho tlmo of cession by Spain. No dis tinction Is made ns to race, but prop erty qualifications arc required. Ai members of the California Commlrslon point out, the Chlneso will be among tho flrst to come forward with proof rt n-niinrl i nunllilnallnna l It la tn " I'SWl'Wl llUUtlUVMWUMB, .J, It, IB IU meir iniercsi. u is even claimed xiuu as thero aro 60,000 adult Chlneso In Manila alono tho United States may un wittingly place the control of the city In tho hands of the Chinese, unlesi somo racial barrier Is erected. As to that, much dlfllculty would bo experi enced In distinguishing between na tives and Meztlzos nnd Chinese. In case citizenship Is conferred tho status of the Chlneso In the Philippines would bo different from that of their countrymen In Hawaii, when that country was annexed. The Hawaiian Chlneso wero easily kept from the Am erican mainland by tho Insertion of a few- lines In tho annexation act, but, It tho people of the Philippines aro to ho mado citizens, much doubt Is expressed that this country would have tho pow er to require such citizens to remain In tlie Islunds. Tho great danger Insisted upon by Callfornians, who know tho Chlneso chararter best. Is that such legislation would merely mako the Philippines a brldgo for the Chlneso to cross to tho United States. Army offl cera declare there is no cffeitlvo meth od of preventing tho Chlneso from en tering tho Philippines, nnd tlto a con stant smuggling of arms Into tho Isl ands to show how easily a Chlneso could evndo tho coast patrol. Theso matters are to come beforo tho Senate Committee on tho Philippines and House Commltteo on Foreign Relations and both committees have asked Call fornlanB to appear and stnte their ob Jcctlons to the bills of Lodge nnd Coop' or.

A crow or eigni men was summoned and they wont uftcr the bargo, which was found to bo dangerously near tho roof on tho Wnlklkl side of tho channel. After several hours' hard work tho big scow wns pulled to tho Quarantlno wharf, wbero It was moored In safety.
