portion of calves, sheep and hogs.
Stock is becoming more healthy.
During the past fortnight, according
to Mr. Keliipio there have been handled
at the market 95,273 fish.
Reports were read from Koloa and
Hilo hospitals. Nothing out of the
ordinary.
Dr. F. S. S. Jerome, lady graduated
physician and surgeon, from France,
was recommended by the Board to the
Minister of Interior for a license to
practice medicine and surgery in this
country.
Dr. N. Russel, of Hilo, submitted a
bill for attendance upon a supposed
case of diptaieria. The Board will ask
for further information from Hilo.
Caution will be exercised before a
precedent of paying other than a Gov
ernment physician for services. Mr.
Lansing said allowance of .the claim
would open up an extensive claim field.
Fifty-two people in Koloa and sixty
in Lihue send a petition asking that
Dr. Waughup, acting temporarily be
made the permanent Government phy
sician for the places named. Action
deferred. 'The secretary will acknowl
edge receipt of the letter. Many natives
are in favor cf Mr. Waughup.
Three petitions advocating the ap
pointment of Dr. F. Macmillan for Gov
ernment physician in Kau were read.
There were 123 signatures. Nearly all
of the signers were Hawaiians. Final
disposal of the petitions was post
poned. A native woman of Hcokena com
plained to the Board of swine running
at large in that place. Referred to the
police department.
W. L. Wilcox notifies the Board of
the scarcity of taro on account of blight
and drought and of his unability to
supply the contract amount of poi.
Mr. Wilcox states that he has made
every effort to get the vegetable. More
than half the Chinese poi shops of Ho
nolulu have closed. In Koolau. Oahu,
natives are making poi largely of flour.
Mr. Wilcox suggests that all effort be
made to have rice and bread used at
the Molckai settlement. President
Smith said Mr. John Ena had told him
of the extensive use of wheat flour poi
in Kona. Mr. Keliipio said taro and
poi were very scarce. Dr. Monsarrat
being questioned. 50 per cent, of the
natives were pilikia for poi. Dr. Oliver
said the change to rice and flour poi
during the cholera term in 1895 pro
duced much illness for a long time.
The Board recognizes the plight of the
contractor and will simply request him
to furnish all the poi possible. for the
settlement. Mr. Wilcox will not be re
leased entirely from the agreement to
supply paiai. The Board will increase
the shipment of wheat flour to the
settlement.
A number of people at the Molokai
settlement write of herbs growing near
Kalaupapa which they have used for
bathing lotious with much benefit. It
is represented that the field in which
these herbs grow is about to be used
for pasturage. The natives wish the
tract reserved. Dr. Oliver said the
patients who had used these baths
seemed to improve as under the other
bathing treatments. This matter is re
ferred to Mr. Reynolds, who will in
vestigate and report. It is certain that
the herb supply will be kept for the
use of the patients.
A haole at the settlement asks for
leave to make and sell sweet cider,
using the following besides water.
Raisins, grain, sugar and cream of
tartar. This is represented as a non
intoxicant. The man says the cider will
stop the "swipes business." The Beard
will look into the cider proposal on
the next visit.
Mr. Reynolds spoke of the posslbili-
ty of raising a large amount of taro
near the settlement. Superintendent
Feary and others desire to engage in
the business and ask for a ten-year
agreement, presenting a contract. Mr,
Feary has made some start already,
President Smith and Mr. Lansing saw
much objection to Mr. Feary, as all
official, conducting such a business
privately and receiving for the Board,
goods from himself. Mr. Reynolds be
lieved the idea a good one and cited
that while in office Assistant Superin
tendent Hutchinson had several fish
eries. There might be a change and
Mr. Feary was a resident of the set
tlement for life. Dr. Oliver said Mr,
-beary was a man oi energy and in
tegrity who could be depended upon
absolutely. Mr. Smith cited that Feary,
when taking the superintendency, had
been compelled to give up a coffee
shop business, as suggested by Mr.
Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds said the dif
ference was that in the coffee shop
the owner came into direct personal
contact with settlement people, ah

Under existing conditions, he said, the cox and Mr. Reynolds from the time of
money from the several districts for
school tax must be expended in the
district in which it was collected. Were
tne passed the Government could
spend it where they pleased. It was
all very well for Honolulu where the
district could see that the schools re-
ceived.
After explanations "by Minister
Damon and Cooner of the Interior
of the system of book-keeping neces-
sitated by the existing acts, the bill
passed second reading. Third reading
was set lor Friday.
The sake bill was read by title and
went to the Commerce Committee.
The House bill relating to claims
against estates of deceased persons was
read by title and went to the Judiciary
Committee.
rlhe Senate bill to amend the act
relating to appeals and bills of ex
ceptions come up icn. second reading
and passed. Third reading was set for
Monday.
The report of the special commit-
tee on the bill in regard to Schedule
B was taken up with the bill. The
committee offered a further amend-
ment that nothing contained in sec-
tion OS "shall be continued to authorize
the Tax Assessor to demand the re
turn authorized by this section from
any person, copartnership or corpora-
tlOT1 whose business consists solely m
the buying and selling of merchan
dise." It was explained that this
amendment sustained the division of
the Executive last year. The bill then
passed second reading. Third reading
General appropriation bill 4 was
taken up. An item amounting to ?6,600
for bridges in general on Kauai and
an item of $700 for Waikae bridge on
Kauai were inserted as was an item of
2,500 for expenses of the Bureau of
Immigration. The bill then passed by
sections and went to the committee on
enrollment and revision.
At 11:40
o'clock the Senate
journed.
HOUSE.
Rep. Isenberg introduced his
bill
and
relating to barbed wire fences
barbed wire on fences and Rep. Robert
son followed suit with his bill relating
to the decent of property.
Rep. Robertson gave notice of his
intention to introduce an act to relieve
the Sailor's Home Society of taxes
and another relating to the carrying
of mail by coasting vessels.
Rep. Wilder read three reports that,
for length, must surely have satis
fied the members who. early in the
week, objected to the handing in of
reports for passage, indefinite post
ponement or laying on the table, of
certain bills without further comment.
In regard to House bill 59, relating
to fraud in sale of foreign gcods in the
Republic of Hawaii, the Committee on
Commerce recommends passage with
out amendment. "This Act is aimed to
promote honesty in business dealings
and to promote and protect Island
production and manufacture. It i3
clearly an imposition and fraud upon
the purchaser to have the quality or
make of goods misrepresented in the
way sought to be guarded against by
this Act. The bill is calculated as above
stated, to protect and foster Island
manufacture and produce, and It has
a commendable end and one which
has already induced considerable legis
lation. The second report was on House bill
Gl, "An Act to facilitate the recovery
of rents." The committee recommend
ed passage of the act. The report In
part, is as follows: "In the opinion of
the committee the method of enforc
ing rent by distraining the goods of
the tenant gives undue power to the
landlord and is likely to lead to abuses
and also occasionally to positive
breaches of peace. Many of the State
legislatures hav eabolished this method
of procedure, and we are of the opinion.
that the landlord will have sufficient
protection by suit for the recovery
of rent."
The third report of the Commerce
Committee was on House bill 51, "An
Act to amend Section 14 and 15 of
Chapter 44 of the Session Laws of
1SS2," and to repeal Sections 17 and
18 of said Laws, relating to the sale
of spirituous liquors. The committeo
iumuieiiutHi luuemiue postponement.
There was some discussion on this
report. Rep. Wilder, after reading his

that he thought he and Mr. Isenberg
had already signed it. There was more
objection and Rep. Wilder arose, ask-
ing, under suspension of rules, to again
read the report. This was not favor
ably received. The Speaker ruled that
the report should be allowed, as Mr.
Wilder had explained matters.
All three reports were laid on the
table to be considered with the bills.
Rep. Isenberg asked leave of absence
from 11 a. m. for the rest of the day.

Minister Cooper presented the fol-

ican Minister, relating to the resolution
recently sent by the Legislature to the
Government of the United States and
dealing with the disaster to the Maine:
