Cable Bill Again - House Passes Electric Road Franchise Provision. SENATE. Seventy-fifth Day, May 13. The Senate increased the appropria tion for harbor improvement to $225, 000 and inserted the item in the ap propriation bill. An express stipula tion was made, endorsed by the com mittee, that the course of the Nuuanu stream be not turned and that none of the money be expended for build ing a dam for that purpose. Senators Baldwin, Brown and McCandless en dorsed the view of the committee. The discussion brought out consid erable serious opposition to Superin tendent Rowell. His ability to plan public works and harbor improvements for the Government was called in question and he was severely criti cised. The Milk License bill, fixing the li cense to sell milk at $1 passed third reading. The bill to establish a marine park on the east side of the harbor was read by title and went to the Public ,ands Committee. The Pacific Cable bill was read sec tion by section. Senator Baldwin ex plained his signature to the commit- ee report on the exclusive feature in the bill. Strictly interpreted the bill was not an exclusive franchise, as the bill specified within what bounds the cable could be laid. He said the Isl ands must have a cable. The war between the United States and Spain had shown more than anything else how necessary to the safety of com merce a cable is. He said he knew that a part of the Executive was op- Dosed to the exclusive feature but an amendment had been proposed making the exclusive provision inoperative unless the company secured a fran chise from the United States. Minister Cooper stated that the Exe cutive was united in its opposition to an exclusive franchise, to a specific company for a specific contract. The first section, granting the fran chise to the Pacific Cable Company with the exclusive feature was passed. An amendment was added provid ing that the contract shall not take effect and no rights granted by the act to the Pacific Cable Company, shall be vested or secured until the approval of the contract by the United totates Government, shown by a written ap proval thereof signed by the Secretary of State. The bill then passed second read ing. Third reading was set for Mon day. At 12 o'clock, the Senate adjourned to Monday. HOUSE. Rep. Loebenstein reported for the Committee on Public Lands on Senate bill 9, relating to the construction of railways, recommending passage. Laid on the table to be considered witn tne bill. Ren. Isenberjr. as chairman of the Committee on Carter Memorial, asked for an extension of time until Mon day, for the consideration of the peti tion in hand bearing on the subject. No agreement had yet been arrived at although several meetings had been held. Extension of time granted. Third reading of House bill 5o, relat ing to electric street railway. The bill was read carefully when Rep. Richards inquired as to the law relat ing to franchise. Rep. Robertson an swered "not more than 50 years." The bill passed third reading unanimously. The resolution introduced by Kep. Robertson and looking toward the en forced cessation of the dredger work now going on near the old flshmar- ket wharf, was a red rag to some four or five of the members. The first thing done was the intro duction of an amendment to the reso lution by Rep. McCandless to the effect that the Government be given power to condemn any of the land of the O. R. & L. Co. necessary for wharf purposes. He withdrew this and then introduced another amendment to the effect that the Government condemn, if necessary, any other property neces sary for wharf purposes in Honolulu. Rep. Robertson spoke in favor of the Government control of all the wharves but against the present work of diminishing instead of increasing wharf space. For that reason he was in favor of the cessation of the pres ent work of the dredger until proper investigation could be made and a course laid out. Minister Damon favored the plan of placing all wharves in the hands of the Government. He was in favor of a Board of Public Works to look into all such matters. The members of the Executive and the Legislature could not pass expert judgment on matters Of the kind. At about 12:30. the resolution of Rep. Robertson with the additional clause of the committee and the amendment of Rep. McCandless pass ed and the House took a recess until 2 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. Bill 33. relating to public lands. Passed first reading, read second time In Palestine. An American traveling away from the City of Jerusalem met an English man on the way to the chief town of the Holy Land. Of course they ex changed notes. Said the American: "Don't go to Jerusalem. It's the dead est town you ever saw. Why, they haven't even a daily paper there." The Englishman went on and after wards when his cousin came to think of it again the conclusion was that after all Jerusalem was interesting. Rev. M. L. Berger, D. D., who is lec turing here for young men on travel in Egypt and the Holy Land, went all over Palestine on horseback and tells of it in a way that entertains and informs. Rev. Dr. Berger will speak to men at the Y. M. C. A. hall at 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. There will be special music and the audience should be a large one. Wherever this speaker has appeared there has grown interest in his work of describing the life and legends and stories of the old lands he has visited. Government I nj notion. Papers in an injunction suit were served yesteray for the Republic of Hawaii against the Hawaiian Com mercial Company. It is the purpose of the Government to interfere with the use of a considerable amount of water front privilege on Maui by the Hawai ian Commercial Company for railway and shipping facilities. While the case is a new one it may be in a way said to be the outgrowth of the quarrel be tween the Hawaiian Commercial Com pany and the Kahului Railway Com pany. Christian Church. Owing to the continued illness of the pastor, Rev. T. D. Garvin, the pul pit of the Christian Church will be occupied at both morning and even ing services tomorrow by Rev. Dr. M. L. Berger. The morning theme will be "Enduring Hardness." In the ev ening, the doctor will deliver one of his lectures on Bible Land "Egypt and Her Tombs." Since Dr. Berger's lectures have been going on at the Y. M. C. A. hall, considerable dissatisfaction has been expressed on account of the.ladies hav ing been debarred from attendance, the lecture tomorrow evening will of course be free to all.
