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.

makes the very best sort of advertis
ing. The saving of even the smallest
fraction in buying is often worth, in
the aggregate, your year's rent.
STRONG POINTS.
The strong points on which we make
our sales and keep our customers lies
in the fact that we never attempt co
ercoin. We don'-t approve of it under
any circumstances. Many times we are
asked relative to the different goods,
and we gladly give it even if we have
to sacrifice a penny '"by doing so. In
the long run we lose nothing.
STAPLE GOODS.
La.t week we spoke of our canned
goods, this week we will talk fruits in
glass jars. The name of J. T. Morton,

GOOD
BLOOD
Your heart beats over one hundred thou
sand times each day. One hundred thousand
supplies of good or bad blood to your brain.
Which is it ?
If bad, impure blood, then your brain aches.
You are troubled with drowsiness yet cannot
sleep ; you are as tired in the morning as at
night; you have no nerve power; your food
does not seem to do you much good.
Stimulants, tonics, headache powders, can
not cure you: but
will. It makes the liver, kidneys, skin ar.d
bowels perform their proper work. It re
moves all impurities from the blood. An it
