HOUSE IS AGREED Passed Senate Resolution on Memorial Fountain. Ministers' Authority to Dispose of Squares Doubted More Questions Asked, HOUSE. Fifty-eighth Day, April 23. Robertson, presented a petition Rep. from people of Honolulu for an appro priation of $3,000 for fixing the Puunui road. Referred to the Committee on Public Lands. Rep. Richards presented a petition from North and South Kona and Ha- ma.Trnn with 4S cisrnatures. as well as one from Olaa with 38 signatures, pro testing against the building of an electric railway in Hilo. Referred to the special committee. Rep. Isenberg presented the majori- tv rnnrt of the special committee to whnm wn a referred the concurrent re solution relating to the Carter memo rial, recommending the adoption !of the resolution. This report was signed by Reps. Isenberg and Pogue. Rep. Atkinson did not concur. It was mov ed that the majority report be adopted. The Attorney-General mioved to amend to the effect that the report be accepted and that the special committee confer with the Senate committee on the mat ter. The matter" could .be settled in this way -without much friction. It was the opinion of many of the supporters of the Government that the action of the Senate had 'been rather hasty. Rep. Robertson was of the opinion that it was unfortunate the matter had came up in the shape it had. However, the members should pass oyer the immediate object of the (mat ter and look at the question of the right of the Minister of the Interior or any other Minister to erect any obstacle in the middle of any public highway. Here Rep. Robertson re ferred to the Vineyard street tree and placed it in the same (category "with the fountain. Upon being put to vote, Reps. Wild er and Atkinson were the .only ones who did net vote in favor of the adopt ion of the resolution. Rep. McCandless presented the fol lowing resolution which was referred to the Committee Ion Public Lands. 'Resolved, '.That ?5,000 be appropri ated to widen King street on the east side of Kalihi bridge, adjoining the W. L. Wilcox and Gulick properties in Kalihi and for a new bridge across Kalihi stream on King street." Rep. Achi presented the following resolution which was referred to the special committee on contracts: "That an item of $262.50 ;be appro priated for the remainder of pay for work on the roads in North Kona, Hawaii." Rep. Achi propounded the following questions to the Minister of the Inte rior ad interim: 1. "Please state if, after change in time of the rounds of the odorless ex cavators from day to night, the death rate in the city has increased. 2. "If such is the tease, what is the percentage? 3. "Did the doctors of the Board of Health consider that the change from day to night was a good one? 4. "Is it the intention of the Beard to continue this practice of working the odorless excavator at night? The Minister of Finance presented the following answers, to questions propounded by Rep. Robertson: 1. "I have no official knowledge or otherwise, of any wharfage col'Iected, from vessels other than two cents per registered ton, at which rate collec tions have been 'made since 1S57, but for which neither law nor authorita tive published official regulations ex ist other than the tariff and digest issued under imy instructions as Minis ter cf Finance in 1893. "Further, I have no knowledge that such vessels or their agents make large profits out of Government wharves. 2. "In answer to the question 'should net the Government be entitled to receive all wharfage paid by con signees?' I would state that such is not my opinion un'less the Government has control over all agreements to carry freight, between the carrier and importer. "The Provisional Government ly an act authorized the Executive to enter into certain contracts remitting wharf age, under certain conditions, for the carrying cf mails free and, limiting the charges for freight and passengers, but I do not consider that this would relieve the importer from paying wharfage to the agents of vessels. "In answer to the question 'Please state whether any Government officer has authority over the manner of use of the wharves of Honolulu, or over the manner of handling or disposition nf frfMsrh!- ln.lerl on said wharves.' I would respectfully refer to the follow ing extracts from the Penal and Civil laws of 1S9T: "Sec. 34S p. 149, P. L. 1S97. Sees. 1124-37. p. 3G'-9, P. L. 1S97. Sees. 1247-50. p. 401-2 ,P. L. 1S97. Sec .50C, P. o, C. L. 1S97. "Further, the Surveyor of Customs is required for Customs purposes to control the handling of freight, the srre.qt diflieulrv bpinr the failure cf legal provision to compel the clearin of wharves within a reasonable time; many importers using the wharves, a storehouses, for. in some cases, weeks after the wharves shoaild have been cleared to allow the landing of new freights. "T tnk-p this nrvnnrtu n it v nf mnkinz the following suggestions recommend- J by Collector-General Me- Stocker: "First That the Harbormaster as now, assign vessels to their berths, and exercise as now, supervision as to her unlading so far as the carrying capacity cf the wharf goes. "Second Being assigned to a berth that a vessel cannot be moved until her cargo is discharged. "Third 'That a Customs Inspector being prepared to report cn cargo that the Surveyor, after giving reasonable time for removal of cargo, be author ized to compulsatorily remove all not removed at expense of consignee. "The above, if faithfully carried out, will to some degree, remove the pres ent irritation from lack of wharf room." The Audit Act was again taken up for consideration. The section cn advertising was again the bone of con tention. Rep. Robertson said the Government system of advertising was all wrong. There should be one offi cial organ for the publication of all Government matters. As it was now, advertisements were put, sometimes in one paper and sometimes in another. People were in a contsant muddle as to where to find what they wanted. By giving all advertisements to one paper, the Government would spend about half nf what thev do now and besides that, people would know just where to look. After much discussion, the section was passed with an amendment, con ferring the power of advertising on the Auditor-General who will choose 1 what paper or papers he deems best. The reading of the hill was almost completed when the motion to adjourn was made and carried, this at 11:50 a. m.
