WING WO CHAN & CO. 210-212 Nituakc Et. jfio mill IB c '?f vC"f 4?) ONLY I4NEW LAWS Some Data on Work of Legislature So Far. There Have Been Presented 114 Acts Petitions and Resolutions In House Task of Committees. There are a number of passed bills in the hands of President Dole and the stream of acts approved by bo:h Houses will flow pretty constantly in the direction of the Chief Executive from now to May .11, ithe last day of the session. Up to yesterday but fourteen acts cf the Legislature had become laws. Eleven of these were introduced in 'the House and three originated in the Senate. Members of the House have so far presented for tae consideration of the whole assembly eighty-one acts. The Senators have brought in thirty-three acts. In all one lnindred and fourteen. Each branch has the same number of members fifteen. In these totals are included acts brought forward by 'Min isters of the Cabinet, those officials having the privileges of either branch, barring alone the right to vote. Yesterday was the fifty-sixth day of the session, which by constitutional provision is limited to ninety days, though the time may be extended tinder limit by "the President. The House has received ninety-two petitions. There have been returned to the House one hundred and one reports. House members have asked of the Executive ninety-.two questions. Seventy-nine resolutions have been introduced into the House. Miscellaneous documents to the number of seventy-four "have found their way to the desk of the House clerk. The great burden of the Legislative work just at this time is upon the committees. At no session :have com mitteemen been so thorough, untiring and willing. Through this means the scope of the work of the Legislature .proper has been greatly extended. Time after time committees have wait ed upon the pleasure , of individuals and interests desiring hearing upon measures. While the Houses have often been in recess for half a day, it wil'l be found that nearly all of the members on both sides have put in better than average office hours on duty. Every afternoon and nearly every evening there have been com 'mittee meetings. From now to the 'end of the session the work will .become more and more arduous. Of necessity some of the measures will be ihairried along their courses.' This means burning of the midnight incandescent. Only a few more bills will be introduced. There will not be a great amount of new work. There is a real mountain of work on hand right now. Both Houses convene at 10 every morning. It is seldom that the at tendance of spectators amounts to any thing; at all. lawmaking here 'has not developed any orators and what lob bying is undertaken is done down town or in the committee meetings. Handling Coffee. Hackfeld & Co. Ltd., have now in their warehouses here between G,000 and 7,000 bags of coffee of the crop of the present year. Heavy shipments lately have been from Olaa and Puna. This corporation has on the premises at Queen and Fort streets an extensive and complete new plant for the prepar ation of rough coffee for the market. This plant is now being worked to its full capacity constantly. Coffee pick ing for the season has ended at Waia nae. This plantation has taken off about 350 bags. From Maunaweli, W. G. Irwin's place, on the other side of this Island, there .has come about 75 bags. There are many thousands of bags of coffee yet to come to Hack feld & Co. ltd. It is known that some of the Hawaii planters who have pick ed, are waiting for the market to im prove. A Former Resident. Bruce Waring, who was formerly well known here in the real estate busi ness, is said to be in Seattle at present. It was always the intention of Mr. War ing to return to Honolulu when annex ation had been accomplished. The gen tleman has been in Central America for a couple of years. It is a circum stance worthy of note that Mr. Waring journeyed from an Eastern city to Seattle for the purpose of meeting Mr. Ilemens, owner of the property oppo site the new fire station lately pur chased by Mr. Desky, with whom Mr. Waring was associated in business here. It will be somewhat of a sur prise to Mr. Waring to learn that the land he desires to possess came into the list of his old partner some time BOCK BEER Is a treat indeed. That's delicious beer for yen. As delightful as any one will ask for. Brewed in the early fall, of carefully selected hops and malt. Of mature age and double strength. Have you tried it at the Criterion Saloon? It's just the right temperature. GRIEG GONG ERT i (Continued fzom First Page.) close commingling of major and minor keys with a predominance cf the lat ter, and by peculiar and effective liar monies, that stir one with sysierious power. His music is that of the open air. of field and mountain of flowers and sunshine and of storm and strife in quick succession. It is a tribute to Greig's music that these who find themselves satiated even with rhe music of the world's masters have found new charm and freshne.-s in the untrammeled meas ures of the Norwegian composer. For the expression of the peculiar individuality of Greig's music, the shorter forms of composition have been chosen by him, thereby special ly adapting ihem to the modern con cert program and enabling the presen tation of complete numbers with a wide range of motive. Greig, like Schumann and Chopin, and between whom there are many points of resem blance, is a master of composition for the piano, but as a glance at the even ing program will show, has not con fined his work to this instrument. The knowledge of Greig's works and the admiration for them has been ex tended by his own delightful interpre tation of them in concerto in London. Paris and Germany, he being though net in front rank, an exceptionally line pianist. It would be unfair f.tfr me to tax your patience further with a musical program awaiting you, and I shall only add that a recent musical item has come to my attention, stating that Greig and his accomplished wife had performed before the Queen at Wind sor, and that he had been the recipi ant of the Jubilee medal a deserved honor. At the present time he should be returning to his home in Norway. Surely it would be a pleasure to him in that distant Northland ,to know that in the mid-Pacific, his work was known and his genius appreciated. 3IISS HART ENTERTAINS. Waikik Grounds and Residence Ablaze With Lights. A thoroughly enjoyable dance was given by Miss Hart at Waikiki last evening. More than a hundred guests responded to the invitation and the lanai was well filled at every number. The house and grounds were very prettily decorated for the evening. Long Sines of colored lanterns were hung between the trees on the lawn and the illumination was 'brilliant. There were flags hung about the ver andasand the lanai, which was clear ed for dancing, was a profusion of greens. Excellent music was furnish ed by the quartette. The night was perfect. The wind died down with the sun, making it possible to serve the refreshments on the lawn. There were 16 numbers on the program. Dancing commenced shortly after S o'clock and lasted until nearly midnight. uUBB GIVE YOURSELF WEIGHT. Don't give yourself away by accept ing any of the inferior brands of beer.
