A Select Committee of the House is Investigating. Hunting Out Contract and Building: Data In the Public Works De partmentMr. Rowel!. A House select committee of which Mr. Loebenstein of Hilo is the chair man, is "after the scalp" of W. E. Rowell, Superintendent of Public Works for the whole group. The first thing the committee did was to call for a list of all the contracts let and all the tenders for work and material re ceived by the Public Works Depart ment during the past two years. It is the purpose of the committee to make to the House an elaborate report on the administration of the depart ment for the period just ended. Num erous charges of all varieties are made against Mr. Rowell and his assistants. There run the gamut from the wrong "pitch" to the roof of a galvanized iron shanty to appropriation of private lands, for roads, without so much as "by your leave." Many witnesses have been called by the committee to testify regarding work performed under the direction of material. It was said by a committee member yesterday that Mr. Kleugel, engineer in chief for the Oahu Railway Company, had been an "unwilling witness" on the Beretania street bridge construction. Contrac tors have been called to tell about the building of the new Central Fire Station and other buildings. There has been a vast amount of inquiry as to the operations of the Government dredger, the pile driver, rock crushing machinery and road rollers. The com mittee will report on Hilo wharf work and road building on Oahu, Hawaii, Maui and Kauai. It is known that it is now the intention to severely criti cise Mr. Rowell in many particulars. This select committee was given such authority by the House that it was able to delegate an agent to make in quiry on Hawaii, and that agent is now away from the capital and at work on his assignment. He is a mem ber of the House. A member of the committee was asked yesterday if the Superintendent of Public Works would be permitted to appear in his own be half or defense. The reply was that Mr. Rowell might be called in and questioned after all the testimony on contracts, buildings, roads and mate rials had been taken. Mr. Rowell was asked if he had been given any intimation of what was going on. He said that some commit tee had called upon his office for enough data to keep a couple of clerks busy day and night for a week and that he had furnished everything for which there had been a request. It was his earnest desire, he said, that if an investigation was in progress it be thorough and careful. He believed that he could show an economical ad ministration by himself and his chief subordinates and that there had been fair dealing and honest work along intelligent lines all around. The report in question will be made in a few days and will be lengthy. I?aseball at 3:30. The Regiment and Honolulu baseball clubs will meet at the League grounds in Makiki this afternoon for the first of series of match games, unless in some manner another association team is provided. The two nines mentioned have agreed to begin anew today. This change is occasioned by the withdrawal from the 1S9S League of the Unions. The Unions were in a company too fast and rather than act as a dampener on the sport quit entirely. The Unions had lost two games and when the Hono- lulus and Regiments mat last Saturday for the first time this season the Regi ments won. They may be able to do this again today and they may not. Hart and WTilder will be the battery for the Regiments today and Lemon and Dayton for the Honolulus. Men in the other positions will be the same as last week. Noticeable in Honolulu. Tf there is any one thing that is com mented upon by tourists to our shores, it is the absence of awnings from the windows and over the veranda steps.In the States the exterior decorations are considered as essential to comfort as the house, and there is no question that they go a long ways towards re gulating the temperature of a room, and subduing the strong glaring light experienced during the long summer season. In a tropical climate they are an actual necessity, to say nothing of the comfort they afford. Ookalu Doing Well. An expert on sugar cultivation well known in the Islands who has recently returned from Hawaii, stated in the course of conversation the other even ing that he saw no finer cane on that Island that was growing at Ookala. When asked if he could account for this, his reply was that he considered the result was due in his opinon, to the very judicious use of fertilizers and good cultivation of the estate. There will be exciting contests and interesting record trials at Cyclomere this evening. Mrs. C. C. Bailey, of Maninvil!, Canada, writes: "After several years of continual suffering. I was persuad ed to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and have reason to bless the day I began their use. Prior to beginning the use of Pink Pills I had been under doctor's care, and had tried oL'ner remedies, but with no effect beyond occasional temporary relief. I suffered from ex treme headaches, dizziness, loss of ap petite and palpitation of the heart. I got so weak that frequently I could scarcely move about, and my whole nervous system appeared to be in a state of complete prostration. When I began the use of'Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, I doubted very much if any me dicine would restore my health, but I determined to give them a trial. Aft er I had taken several boxes, I noticed that I could sleep better, and that my nervous troubles were growing less. My illness had been going on for about four years, so that I did not anticipate that it would be easily eradicated, es pecially as doctors' treatment had fail ed, but after I had taken a dozen boxes, I was again in the full enjoy ment of health. I think people using Dr. Williams' Pink Pills should pay strict attention to the directions, and not always expect a cure from one or two boxes. Had I been so unreason able I would not today be enjoying the good health I have, and I hope this message may benefit same poor discouraged sufferer." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills create new blood, build up the nerves, and thus drive disease from the system. In ihundreds of cases they have cured after all other medicines had failed, thus establishing the claim that they are a marvel among the triumphs of modern medical science.
