Cable Bill Again - House Passes
Electric Road Franchise
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

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
The bill then passed second read
ing. Third reading was set for Mon
At 12 o'clock, the Senate adjourned
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
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.
Bill 33. relating to public lands.
Passed first reading, read second time
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.
