57th Day Afternoon Session
Willi the close of tlio session yes
tcnlny afternoon the House virtual
ly ended Its work for 1909, so far as
new business Is concerned, and all
that now remains to be done Is to
gather up the loose ends and iut on
the finishing touches. It Is too late
for any new bill or Joint resolution
to be made law, as each takes thico
readings In the Mouse and ns many
In the Senate, and the adjournment
sine die is only tlueo worklng-dns
distant now.
There will bo no reclamation of
tho Will Ml; I swamps so far ns tlio
Territory Is cotucruud. That Is
made evident by the report of tho
Walklkt Itcclamatlon Commission
submitted to the House yesterday.
This commission, composed of Mars-
ton Campbell, Kdw. Davis, and W.
W. North, was appointed two cars
ago, In conformity with a resolution
adopted by the Legislature of 190"
to Imesllgntc tlio proposed draining
of the Wnlklki duck ponds and mos
quito swamps and tlio reclamation uf
the Hooded land.
For sumo reason, the report of tho
inmmlsslou was not submitted until
estoid.iy afternoon, although, as
Vl"e Speaker Itlco observed, fifty-six
days of the session had elapsed and
It Is now too late for tho present
Legislature to do nny thing townid
following out the recommendations
In the rcpoit.
The commission is of the opinion
that the Territory cannot undertnko
the work on account of its cost, hut
should be carried on by tho City and
County of Honolulu under a special
Act of the Legislature authorizing
the City and County to create recla
mation dlstilcts and assess the cost
of tho reclamation against the dis
trict benefited by and thiotigh such
Ilefore any reclamation work can
lie undertaken, however, a complete
sjslcni of loads must ho laid out,
which should take Into consideration
the problems of dialmige. Nothing
more dtiectly relates to tho health
and comfort of the residents of Ho
nolulu than the reclamation of these
The commission points out the
danger of tho Introduction Into tho
Island of the ) el low fever mosquito,
for which tho Wnlklkl swamps, un
less reclaimed, will offer splendid
The proposed work Is of such
cost and magnitude that It could not
properly bo borne by tho Issuance of
bonils, cither by tho Territory or by
tho City and County of Honolulu. It
therefore becomes tho obligation of
the property to carry tho burden of
Its Improvement. This method of
Improvement Is a now ono In this
Territory so far as statutoiy laws are
Tho commission urges haste In tho
matter and advises Hint tho present
Legislature shall pass the Act nccom
paujlng tho report to authorize rec
lamation by assessment. Hut it is
too lalo In tho session. There Is no
possibility whatever of the needed
law being enacted. If tho report had
como In a few days ago, there might
have been some chanco for It, but it
was withhold too long, Tho report
was referred to tho Health and Po
lice Committee, which,' however, can
do nothing more with It than to rec
ommend Its consideration to tho next
That Gas Resolution
Tho efforts of the Judiciary Com
mltteo to smother to death Castro's
resolution calling for tho appoint
ment of a commission to invcstlgato
tho manner of doing business and
tho service rendered by tho gas and
clcctilc light companies was only
partially successful. It became evi
dent Thursday that tho committee
was going to let tho resolution die
quietly and without any fuss, in ac
cordance with tho requests of cer
tnln Interests. Members of tho com
mittee when questioned ns to when
they were going to report the reso
lution back were very cvaslvo In
their nnswois. Yesterday morning
the resolution was still quietly sleep
ing Itself to death, hut Castro and
other House members who were In
terested In Its passage and believed
It a good measure so Insistently de
manded Hint It be repotted back by
tho committee that Chairman Doti
t 111 1 1 finally was forced out Into tho
open, and yesterday afternoon tho
committee reported, recommending a
substltuto Joint resolution. Tho new
resolution says nothing about any In
vestigation Into the complaints mado
against tho two public sorvleo enr
poraltoiis, hut piovldes that tlio Su
perintendent of Public Works do ap
point sonio fit and competent person
to ho known as the flas and Klectrl
cnl Inspector, whose duties It shall
bo to exninlno and Inspect tho lay
ing mid placing of pipes, conduits,
poles, nnd wires, and generally to In
spect and examine nil nppnratus of
companies using or supplying gas or
electricity, and that tho Superinten
dent of Public Works do pay to said
Inspector n reasonable, salary, which
salary shall bo paid from tho follow
ing funds, viz.' Three-fourths of said
salary shall be paid from tho nnnual
royalty or payment paid to tho Su
perintendent of Public Works by tho
Hnwallan Electric Company, Limit
ed, nnd one-fourth of said salary
shall bo paid from tho annual royal
ty or payment paid by tho Honolulu
(las Company, Limited, to tho Super
intendent of Public Works, nnd fur
thermore that the Superintendent of
Public Works of the Territory of Ha.
wall do examine generally Into the
conduct of tho n flairs of tho several
public service corporations using or
supplying gns or electricity by vlrtuo
of rights granted them under fran
chises from the (lovcrnment of tho
Territory of Hawaii, nnd report tho
result of his examination to tho Leg
islature of 1DU."
- This substitute resolution passed
Ha first reading nnd was placed on
tho order of tho tiny for second read
ing today. Hut It does not carry out
tho Intent of the original resolution,
nnd Castro was obliged to accept It
merely because ho considered half a
loaf better than no loaf at all. Hut
ho may get tho other halt of tho
loaf, too, for no sooner had tho first
resolution been disposed of than Al
fonso oITercd another, ns follows,
which passed Its first reading:
"Ho It Itseolved, by tho Legisla
ture of the Territory of Hawaii, Thnt

Said commission shall report to tho

31, 1910, transmitting with its re

duced a resolution which, although
of courso It stands no chanco of be

Ifepresentatlves something to think
about. Tlio resolution, which was re
ferred to tho Miscellaneous Commit

tho women are fully capable of tak

"Whereas, It would bo a distinct
benefit to this Territory in many
ways If the women were allowed to

THE MILL will never grind faster unless you
increase the flow of water. If the wheels of
your business turn slow it is because there is
no pressure to increase their revolutions. Ad
vertising develops this pressure. It increases demand.
It creates and continually enlarges patronage. The
man who makes a great success in the mercantile trade
points to his policy of advertising as the basio factor
to his prosperity. The
has turned many a poor business into a profitable bus
iness by recruiting customers for it, It is a .uapcr read
by people who are buyers, but discreet buyers. They
believe it is a merchant s function to advise them if he
desires their p,atr;nage.
