Marshal Brown has prepared a flood j rfrport that will most likely be read to le members cf the Legislature this 4 ay. It is to the effect that the damage In dollars is not great. The houses in jfthe flooded district are still clamp and in many cases wet weather remains on the floors. In a week or ten days, with fair weather, the cottages will be all right for occupancy again. In the meantime, as the Advertiser said, the people thus deprived of their homes, are lodging with friends and relatives about the city. They are not in great distress now, all their temporary wants having been supplied without delay by the Hawaiian Relief Society. The iMarshal found that 301 people had been driven from their homes by the sudden rise of Nuuanu stream. Of this total, 117 were children. Marshal Brown says that about the only assis tance he could suggest would be the use of some carts or wagons for them in moving their belongings. In commenting on the flood outside the report, Marshal Brown mentions the work of the Hawaiian Relief So ciety in terms of highest praise and speaks well also of the part C. S. Desky took in aiding the distressed people. Mr. Desky was on the scene and ap preciating the need for changes of clothing supplied a large quantity for both men and women. ? Captain Parker is mentioned in the report of the Marshal as having made a thorough inspection of the flooded districts. WILL BE REMEMBERED. Minister Shinianiura Frepares Tes timonial for Wells. William Wells, the sailor from the R. P. Rithet, who so heroically tried to rescue the Japanese fromi drowning in Nuuanu streaim, is to have a hand some reward in addition to the purses of money which have been raised for him. Today he is to be presented with a gold watch, suitably engraved and the following memorial from Minister Shimamura: "March 28, 1898. "To Mr. William Wells, Aboard the American Bark, R. P. Rithet. "Information has come to me from several sources and of a trustworthy nature that, on the 24th of March, 1898, during a raging flood in the Nuuanu stream, you manfully tried to rescue a drowning Japanese, one of my countrymen. The sentiment to as sist one in distress is humane. -An effort, to save human life, at the im minent risk of losing one's own is both courageous and heroic. "Permit me to thank you for your humane sentiment, your courageous and heroic effort to save the life of the unfortunate Unosuke Kitagawa. Please to accept the accompanying watch from the Japanese residents, as a slight token of their admiration of your con duct. "Yours with respect, "H. SHIMAMURA. "II. I. J. M.'s Minister Resident." HABEAS CORPUS. Two Men Sold Kauai Chinese Mo lasses for Opium. There is returnable before Judge Hardy, of the Circuit of the Island of Kauai, this week, a writ of habeas cor pus, in the case of the Republic against a couple of men who are al leged to have sold to some Chinese of the Garden Isle, spurious opium. The bargain was made for the genuine drug and good samples were shown. On de livery, the goods proved to be a mix ture of poi and molasses. The sellers were first arrested on the charge of opi um in possession. This prosecution fell through, and next they were arrainged as gross cheats. The Government of ficials will make a determined effort to have the writ put aside, so that the case may go to trial." The attorneys for the defendants believe the case will fail for the reason that the whoe transac tion is in a contraband article. The case is watched with considerable in terest from Honolulu, for the reason that the same sort of a swindling game has several times occured here in out law circles. A tart Ue mains. The sons of Claus Spreckels have near Kahului, something placed by their father, many years ago, that they will now use as a part of a new move ment in their business of handling the affairs of the Hawaiian Commercial Company. Claus Spreckels at one time proposed to have a wharf of his own at Kahului, instead of using lighters him self or having some one else move his freight. The imported men who had placed the foundations for the mill en gines and boilers and some of the buildings, were set at pier building. They inade a very fair success of most of the job. Some of the pier founda tions were set too near the surface, and have ben toppled over by the moving waters and sands. Others yet remain and will, in all probability, be utilized by the brothers in their new enterprise. WHAT IS ASKED. Loan and Improvement Bills! Just Under a .Million. j The Lean Bill and the Sunday Inv (provement bill introduced into the Senate yesterday aggregate $993,300. Of this amount $721,300 is in the Loan Bill under the act of 1S90. The bal ance, is to be taken from current un appropriated receipts during the pres ent period. If the Loan Bill passes : $455,000 will be spea: on needed im provements on the Island of Oahu, with the greater part in Honolulu, j The largest item in the bill is $237,300 j for the proposed Honolulu sewerage system. On harbor improvement, Ho nolulu, $93,000 is to be spent, on har bor improvement in Hilo Bay, $20,000 is to be spent. New roads on Hawaii will take up $138,000, new roads cn Maui $19,000. The schedule contemplates the ex penditure of $20,000 for new reservoir at Diamond Head, $65,000 for additions to the city pipe system of water works, $3,000 for a fire proof vault at the Supreme Court, $10,000 for a lighthouse on iMakapuu point and $50,000 for sub sidy to the Oahu Railway. Provision is made for using surplus receipts of the period, from balance of deposits in the Postal Savings Bank with the agreement that money so ad vanced shall be reimbursed as soon as practicable from funds received from the loan. The sundries bill includes such inter nal improvements as were selected by the Executive and over which there was question in the Senate as to which bill they should be included in. The Manuel Training School calls for $10, 000, Immigration other than Asiatic $50,000, Nuuanu valley road $10,000, Volcano road in Kau $20,000, regrading main road and roads to landing in Hamakua $22,000, cross roads and road parallel to Volcano road in Puna $50, 000. Other amounts are distributed over the several Islands for improvements in sums varying from $1,000 to $10,000. The money is to be taken for these, improvements from the current re ceipts from the general revenue cf the period. The excess of receipts over expenses for the biennial period just passed was over $300,000. It is estimat ed that the receipts of the present peril 6d will be an increase over last. 3IUTE SYMPATHY. Poetic Feeling Shown In a Pres ent to Clara Barton.

In one of the rural districts a basket of flowers was handed to her, decorat ed with black ribbons, and the words "Maine" inscribed across the face c the flowers. ' Sumner Estate. A decision was filed at the Judiciary Building yesterday in the case of John K. Sumner vs. Antone Perry. Thi case was taken to the Supreme Court on "original jurisdiction." The inter ests involved are well known. The decision orders that the costs of the suit be divided between the litigants. It is decreed that the receivership of J. A.
