Alexander, Surveyor of Hawaii, has iust received i General from Secretary of the Navy Long, at Washington, D. C, a letter which will be prized with the most valuable and prominent documents in the archives cf this Government. Mr. Long ack nowledges the receipt, from the survey department here, of a. map of Pearl Lochs, with soundings, and compli ments .highly the graphic sketch. It is expected that prints of the map will soon be issued, as tlhe work 'has been at Washington about two months. Mr. C. J. Willis, of Prof. Alexander's office corps, made the map in question. This new map of Pearl Lochs speaks volumes under the 'head of keen in terest of the United States in the land bound harbor of Oahu. The soundings were made under the direction of Lieu tenant Mayo, of .the U. S. Gunboat Bennington and the work . occupied four months. Mr. Willis, was ''bor rowed" from this Government to be daughtsman for Lieutenant Mayo and was in the service of the United States Navy for five months from September 1, 1S97. There is a brief mention of this fact in the biennial report of the Surveyor-General to tlhe Minister of the Interior. - During the four months Lieutenant Mayo had the launch, cutter, assistants and workmen at Pearl Lochs no less than 15,000 soundings were made. Be- tween 12,000 and 15,000 soundings show in the map as completed by Mr. Willis. It will be remembered that Lieutenant Max Wood, now deceased, when attached to the United States Flagship Philadelphia 'here was en gaged for several months in making borings or "bottom soundings" in the channel of Pearl Lochs. This work o .uclcu. cuuic, Liuui tire uCWii of Lieutenant Mayo. The task of Lieutenant Wood was to discover and report on the feasibility of deepening the entrance to the harbor. His data went on to Washington many months ago and was wholly satisfactory. It was positively settled by the work of Lieutenant Wood that the channel could be made any depth desired at a comparatively small cost and that the work proposed to be done could be handled by the Government dredger in daily use at the harbor of Honolulu. There is to be removed only sand and soft coral. Of course the work of making 15,000 soundings was a stupendous task. The depths were ascertained with a lead Hue winch was measured twice each day. Boat locations were made from the shore, notes taken and checks fur ther made on a sheet carried in the boat. The third map produced by this process was the one accepted and copied. In speaking yesterday of the soundings, Lieutenant Mayo said that his work established that previous sur veys and soundings had been careful ly made. There is much more deep water at Pearl Harbor than even those most familiar with the Lochs suppose. There are also some turns in the courses to the anchorage that will re quire careful piloting. The Lieutenant Mayo soundings resulting in the map drawn by Mr. Willis have produced a more elaborate showing of Pearl Lochs than ever before placed on naner. 15,000 were made at deprh of forty fathoms. : craze in dress goods for summer, street This is at the edge of the roadstead, ' and evening wear.

The order for the making of the soundings was issued long before the relations of the United States and Spain had become acutely strained. The interest of the United States in Pearl Harbor is well known. That Government has secured by treaty permission to use the Loch3 fcr repairs, coaling, etc. During the past four years, in parts of opposing administrations at Washington, sec retaries of the Navy for the United States have had officers attached to ships here secure and compile exten sive and detail information as to the retreat. However, never before has there been furnished anything so com ple.te or significant as the 15,000 sound ings. A comparatively new piece of survey department work in which the .head of the bureau and his assistants take commendable pride, is a map of Molo- kai. A quantity of the photo-lit.hoi graph copies have just been received from New York. Professor Alexander pronounces this the best map of Molo kai yet produced.

Judge Wilcox said yes- terday that he had some time ago re ceived several small pla'nts from his I brother. G. N. Wilcox, of Kauai. Some years ago G. N. Wilcox imported some trees to the country. He now has two that are doing well, as well a.s some ' ' small ones that are now on the way. It was from these trees that came the small ones now on Judge Wilcox's pre- mises in Palama. He says there is no doubt whatever that the trees will do well there and that they will grow up Quickly, IIeaded for Waialua."

SOME ARGUMENT OH ACT Report on Carter Memorial Foun tain Site Location Not Approv edData on Landings Wanted. SENATE. Fifty-fifth Day, April 20. The Judiciary Committee does not approve of the site of the Carter memo- riai fountain. They believe that another desirable location could be procured. There have been complaints to the Committee that the fountain is an obstruction in the square, but the Com mittee recognizes the restriction of its jurisdiction in the matter. It believes I thnt ih Rii.hipp.t-. should hp lpff. to the I - v w - - judgment of the Legislature. So the committee reported to the Senate senator Hoekins submitted I a Question to the Minister of the In- terior touching on the authority that caused a dedication of a public square for the erection of a memorial. The auestion and the answer were referred to the Judiciary Committee to report thprpon Thft flomm tefifl renorted that if hart faiiprt tn n-tttp flnv ftxnness authority vested in the Minister or i the Interior, but that it thought such Dowers existed by implication. The Senate accepted the report. It was announced that the President had attached his signature to the bill relating to the disposition of the school tax and a bill Drovidingr for 'the elec- i tion of Senators. House bill 49. relating .to the limita- tion of time witftin which actions .may be brought to recover possession or land passed third reading. The House bill amending the act re lating to assault and battery passed second reading on recommendation of the committee. Third reading was set for Thursday. The act relating: to claims against thft estates of deceased nersons and limitinir thp, time for commencing such suits came un on second reading. The Judiciary Committee recommended several cf.ianges in the .bill as reported to t'hem for consideration. One amendment provides that it shall not be necessary to publish a notice cf the estate in Honolulu. The commit- tee reduced the time for bringing suit from three months to two months, as it existed in the old law. Senator McCandless moved that consideration of t!he bill be indefinite- ly postponed. He said that the Hono lulu newspapers have a much wider circulation than the Hilo papers. He considered it an injustice to the cred itors not to have the widest circula tion. The motion was lost ana ,tne bill passed second reading. Third reading was set for triday, ....... ii.. i Mouse Din oy, proiaioiung uie Mie etc. of foreign goods marked to deceive people into thinking that they are Ha waiian came up on second reading.

The Senate concurred m amendments, including the striking out of the item providing for claims arising from possible decisions of the Courts adverse to tne govern ment- for the killing of tuberculous cattle. The House bill amending the license act was taken up on second reading with rhe renort of the committee. The committee recommended the adoption of the bill as a whole. Senator Mc Candless moved that the section re lating to importation of live stcck ba stricken out. He said he believed the bill to be in violation of the whole tenor of the reciprocity treaty. It was practically, he said, creating a mono poly for the Honolulu merchants a Che Hilo merchants could not import live stock at the rate of taxes. It look ed to him like an import duty. Senator Brown said that the bill placed no restriction on the importa tion of live stock. It was simply to compel those who offered live stock for sale to pay a reasonable tax. The motion was lost and the bill passed second reading. Minister Cooper then introduced two acts, the first relating to Chinese immigration provisions, the second amending the la.nd act. The bill re- kiting to the Chinese makes a techni cal change in the wording and elimi nates the provision for the deposit of $1.50 in the Postal Savings Dank. The land act embraces extension of privil eges of the present act and several minor technical changes. At 12 o'clock, tlhe Senate adjourned. 1IOUS1C. Rep.
