TO WAIT WITH THE LOAN BILL Other Appropriations Must Be Put Through Before That One Is Passed. The success or failure of the session of the Legislature now rests with the "House, and only two days remain in which to finish up the work of the extra term. From utterances made hy V'bcans, on the floor of the House, it would appear that'thc Loan Bill is m the greatest danger; that this measure will not get through unless all other appropriations have been put by and signed, and that if there shall be any lack of time, the Governor will be asked to grant an extension, failing which an attempt will be made to force him to do so. t The last of the regular budget measures was passed by the House yesterday, the Eighteen Months Salary Bill, and it will be received uy me senate mis morning, i nere win ee home nam work upon it, for the salaries will have to be kept on the same level with those of the Six Months Bill, if there is to be any attempt at coherency, and this will increase the work before conference committees today. The Senate passed the Coney claim Bill, against the recommendation of the committee to which it was referred, and will have it up on third reading today. The Eighteen (Months Current Account Bill was passed third reading. Senators are in a quandary over the status which will ensue if the present session shall fail to put through the appropriation measures. Yesterday Senators Crabbe, Paris- and McCandless waited on the Attorney General to secure an interpretation of the clause which has caused some comment, bearing upon the availability of the old appropriation measures. The section of the Organic Act bearing upon this matter reads ' thus: ' ' Sec. That 'in caseof failure of the Legislature to pass appropriation bills providing for payments of the necessary current expenses of carrying on the government and meeting its legal obligations as the same arc provided for by the then existing laws, the governor shall, upon the adjournment of the legislature, call it in extra session for the consideration of appropriation bills, and ( until the legislature shall have acted the treasurer may.! with the advice of the governor, make such payments, for which purpose the sums appropriated in the last appropriation bills shall be deemed to have been reappropriated. And all legislative and other appropria tions made prior to the date when this Act shall take effect, shall be available to the government of the Territory of Hawaii. The contention is made that this is permissory only until the legislature shall have acted, and as in the event of failure to appropriate now, the clause making an extra session imperative is operative, just as much as it was on the ending of the regular session. Attorney General Andrews took up the matter at once and will give an opinion today. IN THE HOUSE ' When the House began business It was to receive notice of the passage of the Dole compensation bill by the Senate. Kuma'iae presented the following concurrent resolution: Whereas the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii has appropriated different large sums of money to be ex- pended by the Road Department, there- fore, be It i Resolved and expressed by the House of Representatives, the Senate concur- i Vlng, that It was their Intention In fiaking said appropriations that the ?lrAo .i niIrlni. limln. nnlil tlnnrl Tn urtment be paid henceforth from said jytjproprlatlons nt the rate of not less htin one dollar and fifty cents a day. ' The resolution was adopted by nineteen to four, EIGHTEEN MONTHS BILL PASSED.

The Chinese merchants of Honolulu have declared an alternative boycott upon the Pacific Mall steamship Korea. For the saving clause to prevent the boycott being made absolute, the merchants require an assurance that the indignities they feel have been put upon them and their people by the commander of the Korea shall cease. The most recent Instance of the grievance and that which has aroused the entire Chinese mercantile commu nity to action Is the refusal of the Korea's commander to allow Wong Leong to go aboard the steamer, when last in port on the voyage from Snn Francisco to the Orient, to see his son oft to Japan. The lad was going as a first class passenger to spend a vacation In the Land of the Rising Sun, taking in the international exposition at Osaka. Not only was Wong Leong turned back from the gangway, Imt so were thirty or forty Chinese residents who desired to see friends off to the Orient. Fully eighty per cent of the number,' wlthnl, are American citizens. Wong Leong is a leading Chinese merchant, nn American citizen and married to a Hnwailnn womnn. but the Chinese merchants deem 'it proper to tackle but one of the' leviathans nt a time. The alternative boycott Ib the outcome of a series of earnest meetings. Its form 13 that of a set of resolutions, which has been signed by all of the Chinese merchants In town, as one of them Is authority for saying. This Is apart from a complaint forwarded to the Secretary of the Treasury. It appears that Captain Seabury of the Korea disregarded the passes fur nished the Chinese to go aboard his ship by both Collector Stacknble and H. Hackfeld & Co , agentB of the line. One Chinese merchant stated to an Advertiser reporter that the Japanese liners attempted tho exclusion act on the Chinese here, but changed their policy when the Chinese business guild caused nn absolute cessation of its pat ronage In both passengers and freight to the line. The Chinese colony have had the grievance in question rubbed in, upon different occnslons, by tho repulsion from the gangways of the offending steamers even of consular ofllcers. Their large proportion of the traffic dono by transpacific steamers' gives the Chinese merchants a rather stroncr This latest Instance ot offense Is one'whlphand of the sltuntlon.
