Mr. J. G. Spencer, Pacific Hardware Co., Honolulu. Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. 1 feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty to use this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. L1DGATE. Did Not Approve of Raise in President's Salary. Committee Reports on Positition of Telephone Poles The Land Act Discussed. More Funds Needed to Maintain Kapiolani. Treasurer's Report Shows Deficit. How the S2.500 is Expended Each Year. nousi:. Saturday, May 14. Rep. Achi reported as follows for the special committee to whom had been referred Question 74, relating to the Mutual Telephone Co. "The charter of incorporation of the Mutul Telephone Co. has the follow ing clause: 'Provided always that the erection of the necessary poles and fixtures of the corporations in the towns of the Kingdom shall be made with a due regard to the public con venience, so far as repects this posi tion, and in this respect the said cor poration shall be subjcet to the super vision of the Ministers and further provided that the wires used by the corporation shall, if practicable, be carried under ground within limits of the town of Honolulu.' Said charter was issued or granted August 16th, 1S83. "We also find that there are many posts along King street at Kapalama and Waikiki, which ought to be mov ed back so as to be a proper distance from the line of the Tramways Co. f "The committee is therefore of the opinion that the whole matter of put ting the posts along the streets of Ho nolulu, is in the hands of the Minis ter of the Interior. .We therefore re commend that the above questions may be referred to the Minister of the Interior with instructions to act in the premises."

Kahaulelio introduced the fol lowing resolution: "Resolved that when the appropriation bill is before the House, an item of $30,000 for the salary of the President for the two years ending December 31st, 1899, be inserted." The resolution was indefinitely post poned by a vote of 10 to 1. Rep. Pogue reported for the Finance Committee on House bill 83, relating to weights and measures. The com mittee recommended that the bill be laid upon the table and that a sub stitute bill, handed in with the report, be put in its place. The substitute bill was read by title and referred to thP Printing Committee while the re port was laid on the table to be con sidered with the bill.

At a recent meeting of the Trustees j of Kapiolani Park, the treasurer pre I .seined his report showinsr that tho present appropriation of $2,300 per an num was quite inadequate to meet the current expenses of the park and to keep that now popular institution in any thing like decent order, and make it present a beautiful and attractive appearance to its numerous visitors. Kapiolani Park has now become a sub urban necessity to Honolulu, and it is surprising to note the number of per sons, men, women and children, who throng the park on a pleasant after noon and more especially on Sundays and moonlight nights. Its shady ave nues are the delight of bicyclers and carriage drivers. The amount allowed by the Govern ment for the maintenance of the park is $2,500 per annum. To this may be added about $400 or $500 a year re ceipts from sale of keave beans, fire wood, rents from track for races, etc., making a total of, says, $3,000. Out of this there has to be maintained the whole property of the park comprising about 250 acres. This represents ever eight miles of avenues, numerous bridges, culverts and fences, all of which have to be kept in repair, to say nothing of the regular work which is constantly going on, of reclaiming swamp lands, building of new avenues, planting of trees, watering of roads and other work incidental to the care of the park. At present the staff of the park con sist of 16 laborers and one manager. Their wages, with the cost for grain and shoeing working animals, more than uses up the receipts, so that by the treasurer's showing, a deficit of nearly $1,000 has taken place since the new commissioners took hold, some two years ago. Unless relief is obtained from the Legislature it will be neces sary to curtail much of the work and necessary 'repairs, which will eventu ally detract from the beauty and at tractiveness of the place. It is to be hoped that the present Leg islature will see their way to helping out the commissioners with a more lib eral appropriation than has hitherto been granted, so that the present in debtedness may be liquidated and some much needed articles like water sprinklers and mules be obtained. l WHOOPING COUGH. I had a little boy who was nearly riotifl from an attack of whooping cough. iMy neighbors recommended Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, l am not think that any medicine would help him, but after giving him a few doses of that remedy I noticed an improve ment, and one bottle cured him entire ly. It is the best cough medicine I ever had in the house. J. L. Moore, South Burgettstown, Pa. For sale by all Druggists and Dealers. Benson, Smith & Co., Ltd., Wholesale Agents for H. I.
