WAIKM SIDE OF HARBOR Acquarium-Locatlon and Site for a Magnificent Recreation Ground Park Scheme. It is evident that this community takes a lively interest in providing suitable places for public recreation. It is a matter of sanitary importance tnat public provision should be made for such needs of any community. It is promoter of morality, as well as health to 'have suitable places for simple socia enjoyment. The readiness with which the Legis lature passed the acts setting aside Aala park as a public recreation ground, and the old Makiki baseball grounds, at opposite extremities of the citv. is significant of a general con- . . . Puonc neea. I The drive up Tantalus and around punchbowl, gives mountain views that are exhilarating and invigorating, as well as delightful. It is hoped that at no distant day, River street will be con tinued along the Waikahalulu stream, from King street bridge to Kuakini street, and so give a charming river drive with bits of lovely riverside scenery. There is still another project that opens up another possible source of re creation, combining instruction with enjoyment. I It is understood that the attention of the Cabinet has been called to the desirability of setting aside some avail able acreage for a sea side park. The land is that part of the reef on the Waikiki side of the entrance to the 'har bor, which the Government has already begun to enclose with a stone wall, and to fill up with the material obtained by dredging out the channel. It is proposed to build a drive way 100 feet wide on the inner side of the enclosing wall. At the entrance point, that never can be available for commercial purposes, on account of the roughness of the surf, there will be an opportunity for the public to enjoy the cooling sea breezes at an easily acces sible localitjr. Along this drive way will he a border of turf 10 feet wide, with an occasional coco palm. "One coco makes the tro pics, rsotmng could be more cnarming to strangers visiting Honolulu, than to look -on such a bit of a park, projecting away out into the ocean, as if o ex tend to every stranger the hospitable greeting of "these sunny isles amid tropic seas." It is further proposed that the trus tees of the Bishop Museum, who have funds available for this- special pur pose, shall build and equip a Marine Biological Laboratory on this portion of the park, and ultimately erect and rrmintnin nn annar:um. where the life of the various inhabitants of the coral reefs and adjacent waters, can be seen and studied. Few of the exhibits at the U,,, rvmrwut r.hen at- tracted greater attention that the glass tanks in the United States Government Building, showing so manj- of the fishes of the seas and rivers amid accessories wonderfully alike their natuarl habitat. The marine fauna of the Islands has never been thoroughly investigated. and now that the Ethnological Depart ment of the Bihsop Museum has been so finely housed, and so thoroughly furnished, the museum trustees may be expected in the future devolopment of the resources, which Hon. C. R. Bishop has so generouslj- placed at their dis posal, to furnish the means for stu-Jy and observation in the zoological de partment of scientific investigation. The place suggested is an ideal local ity for such an institution, and no time would be lost in making ample provi son for the purposes of investigations, collections and preservation. While a certain portion of the area ' enclosed may be set aside for museum "buildings, there is available space, without encroaching on what may be needed for commercial purposes at the east end of the harbor, that may be laid out for suitable walks, plats, pool?, shrubbery and drives. A colonnade and band stand have been suggested. Architects will have opportunity, un der the City Improvement Circle of the Kilohana Art League, to prepare orna mental design posts for electric lights, and bridges over the water ways along side and within this sea side park. It fact, Messrs. Ripley & Dickey have taken such interest in this inchoate project, as to prepare a bird's eye view cf the park as it may be, and to plot the grounds, or the area that may be reserved, according to the survey pre pared by Mr. Dodge of the Survey De partment. Such a project as this should appeal of itself for warm and generous sup port from every public spirited citizen, or intelligence and taste. There is much of such spirit, artistic and scien tific as well as broad minded, in this little community, not wholly domin ated by the greed of getting, but with a world wide reputation for giving lib erally to all that concerns the wellfare of individuals or of the general public. So soon as possible the Advertiser will present views of the ground plan and bird's eye view of the assignment of the entire 28 acres. "ON TO KAIIUKU." Roadbed Beyond Contract for Waialua is Let. It is now "on to Kahuku" in earnest, and a few more years will witness the belting of the Island of Oahu by Mr. Dillingham's railway. The contract has been let to Carl Jensen for grading from Waiarua to Kahuku, and it is the belief that trains will fbe running to that place by De cember 1st of this year. Mr. Jensen is one of the most active and capable con- ractcrs on railway work ever in busi ness in this country, and works quite in harmony with the railway people. He wrill begin work immediately on ex tension of the road bed from Waialua to Kahuku, establishing headquarters for his first big gang of laborers at Waimea. There will be some of the heaviest and most extensive work at this gulch. Contractor Jensen is placing the rails for the new road beyond Waianae. He hopes to be around Kaena Point this week with the steel. Then the 12 rniies or road bed lying between the point and Waialua will soon be negotiated. It is more than likely that the con struction train will whistle into Waia lua by May 15th. Reading Othello. About 20 young people gathered at the King street home of Mr. and Mrs. B. Atherton last evening, to read Othello writh Miss Cora McDonald, whose lessons in literature have met with such success in Honolulu. Parts of the play were read for an hour and half. Quite close attention was given to the study of the play and the ana- ysis of the characters and the action. Miss McDonald led in the comment. ler presentations evidenced the most thorough study of the play. There was read by Miss McDonald the short Italian novel upon which the great play was based. The character of Iago came in for especial attention. The reading will be continued on Tuesday evening next. Critical Stage Passed. John Lot Kaulukou, Speaker of the House, has been a very sick man. For several days his friends have enter tained the gravest apprehensions. Dr. Burgess, the attending physician, an nounced yesterday morning that the critical stage of the illness had been passed. It is now belived that Mr. Kaulukou will be able to leave his bed in about 10 days, but it may be three weeks before he can resume his place of- fV,o T.r?clat;t-o.

THIS IS DUE TO RECENT STORM The House Passes Amended Sake Bill - Argued That It Would Hurt Annexation. SENATE. Forty-seventh Day, April 11. It will cost the Government just $27, 500 to repair the damages done to pub lic roads and bridges during the recent storm, $1S,300 for this Island and $9, 200 for Kauai. This is the amount named in an emergency appropriation bill, introduced in the Senate by Min ister Damon. The Superintendent of Public Works has made his estimates, after a careful investigation of the flood ravaged territories, and consulta tions with the road boards of the vari ous districts. Under suspension of the rules, the bill was allowed to he intro duced on the day of the declaration of intention, first and second readings were passed without printing, and the bill sent to the Public Lands Commit tee for consideration. This was to hasten the appropriation of the money, if possible, that the work of repairing the immense damage may rroceed without delay. Detailed plans have al ready been prepared and were furnish ed the committee to assist them at their work. The reconstruction of these roads and bridges has been temporar ily suspended, pending the passage of the emergency appropriation. It was announced that President Dole has attached his signature to a providing for extending certain streets in Honolulu, and a bill to encourage the cultivation of coffee and ramie by ex emption from taxation. The Senate bill relating to the sub mission of differences to the Supreme Court passed third reading, as did also the bill creating public recreation grounds at Alaa and the old Makiki baseball grounds. The Senate substitute bill allowing appeals from all cases in Circuit and appellate courts and Courts in cham bers to the Supreme Court, except in cases of appeal to a jury, passed first reading and went to the Printing Com mittee. The House bill limiting the time for recovering land to 10 years passed first reading. The House bill providing for the is suance of licenses to steam laundries passed first reading. The plumbing bill was read by title, and referred to the Health Committee with Senator McCandless added. The registry of vessels hill was set for third reading for Tuesday. At 10:45 o'clock the Senate ad journed. j HOUSE. The House, after a long vacation Casting from Thursday, was not called to order until about 10:15 o'clock. The members were not at all active about getting in on time. Rep. Paris presented two petitions from South Kona to the following effect: That contractors cf road from Papa to Kukuiopae be forced to build said road according to contract as it is al most impassable for teams. Referred to Special Committee. Rep. McCandless introduced a reso lution asking for an appropriation of iui 1 v ii t ui iuc iui- lowing streets in Kapalama: Rowe, Notley, Middle and Hoonui. Referred to the Committee on Internal Improve ments. Tha Attorney-General introduced the following bill on public cemeteries: Section 1. The Minister of the Inte rior is hereby authorized from time to time to establish such public cemeter ies, or places for burial, in the several districts of the Republic as he shall deem necessary. For this purpose he may set apart TO S such portions of the public lands as he shall deem necessary, and with the approval of the Executive Council pur chase suitable lands or interests In lands, from private owners.

Section 3. The provisions of this Act shall not be construed to conflict with tha authority imposed by law up on the Board of Health to .make, regu lations for the interment of tho dead. and respecting cemeteries and burying grounds, or to protect the public health. Rep. Kahaulelio introduced a reso lution asking for an appropriation of $250 for repairing the road from Wau- lua to Pelekunu, Maui. Rep. Robertson announced his in tention to introduced an act relating to the descent of property. Rep. Achi propounded the following questions to the iMinister of the Inte rior: 1. Since the death of R. W. Meyers, has extra work been placed upon Chas. Wilcox, secretary of the Board of. Health, and C. B. Reynolds, agent of that same body? 2. For the performance of that ex tra -work, has Mr. Reynolds been given additional pay? 3. Please state if, during the last two years, Mr. Hassinger made a trip to the United States, also, how long was he absent? 4. Please state if, during the last two years, Mr. Hassinger has been ab sent from his office in the Interior Department on account of illness. If so, how long.' .

Has such a substitute been paid, s it the intention to pay him, or h t the intention to provide for him In he same manner as Mr. Stackablo of he Finance Department. Third reading of Hcuso Billl 42, re ating to the duty on sake. Rep. Gear, as a member of the Fin ance Committee, spoke at some length on the injurious effect of sake on the native Hawaiians. He had spoken to three chemists of the city on the anay sis referred to by Rep. Robertson when the bill was up before and had found that this was all right as far as it went. Rep. Robertson had said that the analysis showed nothing deleteri ous in sake. The process had not been carried far enough. The alkaloids had not been separated and it was there fore impossible to separate the active principle which i3 supposed to come from a seaweed used in the prepar ation of sake. Undoubtedly there was something in the liquor that had a bad effect cn the people using it. The Jap anese were in the habit of drinking their sake hot. This destroyed the de leterious effect of the liquor. Natives were in the habit of drinking it cold. In this state it was dangerous. Rep. Achi asked why the previous speaker found it necessary to expatiate on the evils of sake. He could say the same thing about a lot of whiskey and gin imported into the country. Rep. Robertson said that the Fin ance Committe was coming to feel that its report to indefinitelj' postpone the bill had been rather weak. Since the second reading the members had been skirmishing about for arguments to support that report. The arguments just put forth by Rep. Gear had not been to the support of the bill, but rather to, if possible, break down the arguments of the friends of the meas ure. The liquor men of the city had told him that a great mistake had been made when the duty on sake was raised to one dollar. They also ad mitted that a reduction of fifty cents would not reduce the sale of California wines. Rep. Robertson then moved to amend the bill, changing 14 to 17 per cent of alcohol in both line.g 5 and C so that the part should read: "That all spirituous liquors, all stiH wines and other beverages made from mate rials other than grape juice when im ported into the Hawaiian Islands shall, if containing 0 per cent, and not more (Continued on Page 2.)
