Almost, hut not quite, complete Is the work of a special committee which vas appointed to select nicn to serve on the board of, trustees of the Kawai iihi'o church. The committee has hud risplo time to do Its work, but owing In a holiday season, vers' little has been accomplished. The committee sprung a surprise in its appointments.. Well-known men are on the board. Two ot them, however, it is reported, have declined to served On account of this, the committee will pot make its report to the members of. the church until It has found two other! men to serve on the board. 'j I'hosc who have expressed their wil-1 li!ir,ne.sH to serve, according to some of the committee, are W. (). Smith, A. S.I Wilcox of Kauai, Albert Waterhouse, R K. LillkalanI and Judge S. Ilookaiio. 1 P. 0. Johes and George Castle, who nl.'o were approached by the commit tee, it is said, declined to entertain the proposition. It is to select two other men in their places that the committee Ja holding back its report. ' As Kr-on as two other citizens have been selected, the entire mutter will be threshed out In the church. Those who' lire looked upon by the committee as most likely to accept are Judge S. It, Polo and lion. D. P. R. Isenberg. These two names will be acceptable to the committee. But the trouble is that tile members, or, at least, those who have been agitating the plans of having a hoard of trustees appointed, seem tu tni;,) tluit the men named can not, serve on the boned -lirca use' thev are' not members of the church. , It Is on this point that they are plan ning to oppose the report of the com-; mittee .when presented to the member of the church for their approval. Pend ing" the "submission of "the committee's '' report, the agitators are laying out 'their plans for a fight. In speaking about this matter, Judge' llookur.o, who is not anxious to be a member of thebourd, said that it is his belief that, non-members of Kawaiahuo church can become members of Urn board, lie admitted, however, that he had hot read the will of King Kame-1 hnm'eha or the deed in which lie con-! veyed the property to the Kawalahao enurcm lie stated most emphatically that it was better to entrust the prop erty In the hands of such men than to permit 'Irresponsible men to serve- on the board of trustees. J. K. Kamanoulu says that he do rot believe in Selecting men who ara not members of the church. He em phasized the fact that the members of Central Union church would not accept the appointment of men who arc in no way connected with the church to its board of trustees.

"Lame duck" has come to be a term of derision w ith wl leh' to designate the unfortunate culidlduts for .Senate or House w'.io comes limpiirr; .it o Wash iimton al ter a biennial election, to serve out the fragment of n .term for which the people hae just refused to reelect hhn for another. Generally he wears an ex'iectant look and Is an early call er at the White House. It Is easy to get a newspaper interview out of him telling l ow, in spite of appearances, the people are still strong tor the Pres ident, and if, perchance, fhe interview be printed you may see the lame duck of Hie' AVhite House early the next morning, with the newspaper under hU arm, waiting his turn to see the Pres ident. ' "I The lame duck may have been haughty and disposed to show his aver sion to newspaper1 Interviews before the elect ion, and he has beco known to procfaiin that no President Iduld die- tate to him in matters directing his duty to the people In matters of legis latlon. Hut once a lanlej? Jutk, , his plumage is unru'Tled. He is subdu-d and chastened until he seeks only to know what the President df ires and then he is ready to quack response. j Poor lame ducks! ' Washington" la not kinil to them. A poHtlcn) atmo sphere 'is one necessarily more or less charged with sycophancy. "In Wash ington; we look to the rising, not to the setting, sun,"' once remarked an old dame in a government department, in explaining why she always gave a Viise ef roses to the incominj; chief of hci' divisien, but lorgot to say "good-bye" to the di. parting cl.l f. There is some thing akin to pathos in the plight of the average man who suddenly finds himself u political "ex" iti Washing ton, due ixample will Illustrate: la the administration of President Harrison, Green H. liuum of Illinois, ommKsioner of pensions, was a ligure of much prominence socially and polit ically. He was a man of distiuguisb ( d beuriirj mid attractive personality. Alter General Harrison's term expired, General iUuiin went to Chicago to prac tise law. In the administration of President lloosevelt he came to Wash ington on a visit. Passing through the White Mouse grounds a man who had known General Riiuni at sight while he was in olliee saw a policeman re moustrutiir; with a man, whose fea tures sutjgo'-'ted something strangely reminiscent. Suddenly recognizing the face, the observer sought the policeman to Inquire the occasion of the admoni tion the o.'llcer had been giving. "Why, he is some old farmer who did hot understand that 1 e could not be permitted to walk on the grass In the White House grounds," replied the po'ic mnn. "He meant all rl;;ht, and apologized." "I suppose you did not krow that man was General Itaum?" inquired the observer. " "No, and (note is I don't kl.ow who General Ranm Is," replied the sparrow cop." And the o'iserver passed on, reflect ing on the mutability of things politi cal and otlieial. ARMY AND NAVY Colonel Robert Ames is In the mil itary hospital at the Presidio but the matter of his presence is kept quiet. His health has been bad since the sensational suicide of Lieutenant Junney in Ames' quarters last March at Manila. Lieutenant John S. Lambie, medical corps; will ho relieved of duty as sur geon of the transport Sherman about September 12. Lieutenant Vernon W. Holler, Second Infantry, stationed at Whipple Harracks, Arizona, will re port for duty in Hawaii. Lieutenant William II. Smith, med ical corps, will leave Fort Sliafler, near Honolulu, August 13. lie will he succeeded by Lieutenant Adam K. Schlatter, now on duty in the Walter Reed general hospital. i As direct result of the recent ex posure of illegal purchase of military goods by merchants in the vicinity of the Presidio, evidence has been se cured regarding the operations of "loan Kliark8." Careful scrutiny o,' their methods reveals a plan for lend ing money to soldiers at such an ex orbitant Interest rate, with such binding security, as to call for strict, repressive measures.
