House and Senate Compromise

After n conference which lasted near
ly two hours yeeteritay afternoon, n
coiuproinise measure was reached be

of l6o,iMlO for his contingent fund.
this measure was nrst introduced in
the senate during the early part of the
session and cnlleil for an appropriation
of tlSil.lMM). When thia measure went
to the house the solons in the lowei
branch of the legislature cut the np

house ami Representatives Cooke, i'e
trie snd Miles, from the lower house
got together on the measure yesterday
afternoon ami threshed out the vnriou.
needs for this appropriation.
Governor McCarthy pointed out thni
no provision had been made for tin
payment of waterfront guards, eithei
by this or the last legislature, and thi?
item of expense was eating up 13600
month alone and that these men woub
have to be employed on the waterfront
for the duration of the war. Othei
emergencies might arise during thi
ourse of the war, it was pointed out
which might need immediate appro
. nations of money and it was though
by the members of the senate commit
ee that $100,000 was the least the in

Provisional Regiment
From Hawai For
Europe Is Planned
f. : . i. . ,
If War Department Keeps Na
tional Guard In Islands, Form
ation of Fighting Body For For
eign Service Will Be Urged On
A provisional regiment from Hawaii
for service la France will be urged
upon the war department, with' th an
ticipated sanction of the local represen
tatives of the department, if the Wash
ington administration's poliey is later
found to le favoring the retention of
.he Hawaiian National Guard and civil
ian draftee for service exclusively in
garrisoning th posts evacuated by the
egulur organisations ordered to Europe.
Although the guard mobiHcation or
ders have not been received from Wath
ington, nor any additional intlmat' ni
developed at draft headquarters con
cerning tha elvilian draft, metnbeVs of
the legislator are aaid to be planning
the introduction of a resolution ia the
legislature, authorising the Govern ir
of the Territory ia th event there U a
disposition on the part of the war de
partment to keep all drafted menhere
for the period of the war, to' ask the
President to authorize the formation
of a provisional regiment to be made up
of the finest fighting material in the
Islands, recruited from the train9 men
of the camps, and sent to France. This
will be done on behalf of the legislature
and the people of Hawaii.
Should thf war end this summer, for
example, the history of the war would
reveal the fact that organization from
very state in the Union had served
in France, with the single exception of
Hawaii. It is known that many re
piests have been sent to congress, and
individual letter forwarded to officials
in Washington, appealing to have t
'east one fighting unit sent abroad to
-epresent Hawaii.
Up To Lan
It is likely that this suggestion will
e laid before Secretary of the Interior
KYank K. Lane, during his visit here
n June. In all probability the cabinet
ifflcial will have an opportunity tn in
pect the guardsmen in the federal serv
ce, and he can judge for himself wheth-1
r the appeal is just or not. ' j

Major Richard Oliver and Captain

for mobilizing similar to those which
Captain Wit sell gave to the guard on
Monday night. j
The physical examinations of the
guard officers continued yesterday, Jh.e,
results being favorable in practically
every instance. These examination,
however, have to be verified by'tbe
regular army surgeons when the guard
' called. There is a feeling that minor '
defects among guardsmen, which will
not lessen their value as member of the ,
organization, except for actual service
abroad, may be given the benefit of the
doubt, but that if, later on, any of the j
guard is ordered to Europe, there would
be a winnowing among officers which
would leave many behind. j
