FOR INCOME TAX
Rep. Pogue is Working
Hard for the Act.
Calls for Certain Assistance Be
lieves a Start Should be
Made Now.
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. The com
mittee in charge proposes to make this
hop one of the very best yet. Particu
lar arrangements have been made for
music, for boating on the bay and for
transportation. C. B. 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. H., but the
soldier lads will find planty of amuse
ment at the boat house after the parad
ing exercises.

especially if you patronize the Favor
ite Saloon.
W. M. Cunningham, Proprieor of
this well-known resort, has been in
the business for many years, and is a
connoisseur in liquors. His establish
ment is always orderly, and, with the
services of his assistant, Mr. Thomp
son, customers are promptly supplied.
ODD FELLOWS.
IJcftinnins of the Celebration for
70th Anniversary.
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.
