Representative Pogue has, with Rep resentative Robertson and two or three other members of the House, as well as many outsiders, a genuine interest in the Income Tax act now pending. On the subject Mr. Pogue said yesterday: "The act has been amended not a lit tle since it was first presented. I think it safe to say that nearly all the men who were opposed to the bill in its or iginal form would now endorse it. Changes have been made along the lines suggested by able and interested men who said they were in favor of such a tax, but who objected to a num ber of .the details in the act. The levy is now placed at one-quarter of one per cent. That is very small. No one can fell any hardship on account of it. I uderstand that the platform of the Am erican Union Party of this Island has a plank enuorsing Income Tax. Now I hope that the representatives of this party in the House will support the act It seems to -me that they should do this and if they show an inclination to op pose they should be spoken to by their constituents." Mr.' Pogue, having had the Robertson act referred to a committe of which he is chairman, has made quite an extend ed study of the entire subject. He has reached the conclusion that the presen is the time to make a start and tha the proper procedure will be to inaug urate what might be called an experi mental tax to run' or operate till the Legislature meets again. A full test he believes, can the made during a period. Close watch can foe kept by a commission and notes made for the abatement of flaws when, the Legisla ture meets again. It is the hope o Mr. Pogue and others interested that a trial will foe made. tAt one time, it is pointed out by Mr Pogue, there seemed to be an unlimited amount of local enthusiasm in the in terest of the Income Tax, but somehow a coolness came about. It will be re membered that a public meeting was called by the House Comittee. This was held in the Chamber .of Commerce room, Campbell Block. A number of speeches were made. About all the moneyed men of the country were rep resented. There was pronounced ob jection to the act, though a number of speakers declared in favor of the prin ciple of an income tax. It was re marked at the time and has been men tioned since that the Executive failed to present the measure to the Legis lature, though expected one time to do so. The Income Tax act passed by the Legislature before this was introduced in the House by Mr. Winston, and in a test case was by the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional. Cyclonic re. Allen Jones on Monday evening made the fastest eighth yet shown at Cyclomere. He came home from the mark in 13 seconds. A match between John Manoa and George Martin is being arranged. Both are willing. C. S. Desky is organizing a box party for the reopening. Among the officials for the new meet may be mentioned: Manager, C. F. Murray; judges, E. I. Spalding, Chas. A. Bon and W. W. Harris; umpire, Chas. D. Walker; clerk, David Koii; starter, C. F. Schr- merhorn; scorer, W. Nott; handicap- per, C. Ij. Clement; timers, TV. T. Mon- sarrat, Frank Kruger and Chris Willis. Ilculani Hop. Tickets are now ready for the Hea- Iani Boat Club moonlight dance and boating party to be given on next Friday evening, the Gth inst.

Cray is at the head of the committee. The ball falls on the same night as the next drill of the First Regiment, N. G.

There was a big rally of Odd Fellows i and their wives and daughters and lady j friends at Harmony hall last evening. ; The occasion was the formal celebra-1 tion of the 70th anniversary of the j founding of the useful order so popu lar in Hawaii. The gathering was in every way representative and the event was made attractive for all. On Satur day, as a continuation of the celebra tion there will be a basket picnic at Sans Souci. It will begin at 10 in the forenoon and end at midnight. After the opening ode last evening prayer was offered by Rev. Alex. Mackintosh. The proclamation from the Sovereign Grand Lodge was then read by W. J. Coon. A brief opening address was made by H. H. Williams. Miss E. Dayton rendered with excel lent effect a piano solo. Recitations that drew forth much applause were given by Sister C. Petrie and Profes sor Lightfoot. Prof. H. Berger gave some lively piano selections. A read ing by M. T. Bluxome was followed by Miss E. Lyle and Master Nicoll in a laughable character song. Mandolin and guitar music was furnished by Toyo Jackscn and Kaai. A suitable address was made by J. Alfred Magoon, who told of the origin of the society, as well as its establishment in Honolulu. A few remarks were made by J. J. Mc Donald. Mr. J. McGuire sang and was called upon for another. Mr. Davies, who is n6w a great favorite with Ho nolulu people as a tenor, rendered a solo and was at his best. Refresh ments were served and dancing began. It was long after midnight when the orchestra was dismissed. Ship A. G. Ropes, in command of Captain Rivers, arrived at New York, March. 20th from Liverpool, after a passage of only nineteen days.
