"Salary of Secretary $4,S00. "Salary'of Clerks (one at $2,400 and one at $2,000) $4,400. '"Salary of extra Clerks $1,000. "The committee consider it better to ivide the salary in this way as it will div prevent a Minister from raising the pay of the ordinary clerks out of the general appropriation for clerks, which could be done were a lump sum voted. There should be a sum set nsidp for px - tra clerks wno are sometimes requir- ed under an urgent press of business. 'Salary Clerk of Executive Council o inn inCto q r.AA "The object of the raise asked for j in this item was on account of the . personal attributes of the present in-j cumbent. but your committee does not j regard this as a good reason. Unless i for very good reasons, salaries should not be raised and Government em ployes should not be led to think that Legislatures will be disposed to raise salaries for special incumbents." Rep. Pogue reported for the Finance Committee on Senate bill 2-5. "An Act to amend Section OS of Act 51 of the Session Laws of 1S96. relating to in ternal taxes, approved June 3d, 1S96,'' in part, as follows: "That Schedule E grants to arbitrary powers to the assessors to place a ficti- tious and intangible valve to cornbin i ations of property for business pur ! poses. i "That no law on our session hook lje n enforcement to create more "auuii Liiau uub Mime tomt'auit' E.) "In the opinion of your committee, the burden of taxation can be better and fairer placed where it should be the imposition of an income tax. where the assessment can be made, not by guess work or arbitrary ruling, but ! by the inspection of books of the ac tual accounts of those liable to taxa tion. "We do therefore recommend that this bill be laid on the table, and that a substitute, which we herewith in troduce, providing for the repeal of the present system of valuing property on fictitious valuation be adopted." Rep. Pogue moved for passage in first reading of the substitute bill while Rep. Richards moved its rejection on the ground that it would bring on an other fight between the people and the Government. The motion of Rep. Richards was lost and the substitute bill passed first reading. Report laid on the table to be considered with the bill. For the Finance Committee Rep. Pogue reported in part as follows, on items in the appropriation bill referred to that body: "Line 111 "We consider that the Postmaster-General should be relieved from the actual care of the details of the Honolulu Post Office, and that the secretary not only be the bookkeeper of the bureau, but should also be prac tically Postmaster of Honolulu. We do therefore recommend that, this line read 'Deputy Postmaster-Gneral, $3. 600.' " "We concur in the above report with the exception of the permanent settle ment to Kaiulani. We consider that this lady has been deprived of her rights through no fault of her own and that the amount in the appropria tion bill is not a sufficient compensa tion. We would therefore recommend that the item pass at $6,000." A. V. GEAR, J. D. PARIS. Report laid on the table to be con sidered with the bill. Rep. Robertson reported for the Ju diciary Committee on various items in the appropriation bill. Rep. Gear reported for the special committee to whom had been referred House bill 23, relating to the proce dure in actions of condemnation under the right of eminent domain by de claring certain uses connected with the production and distribution of electri city and electric power to be public uses, and providing for the condemna tion of property for such .uses.

Rep. Loebenstein "The resolution embodies requirements which the com mittee feels it cannot carry out. The committee has wearied its limbs by walking back and forth to the Public Works office for information without being able to get any." Then came a long discussion on the adoption of the resolution. It was finally put through. At 12 m., House adjourned. Margaret and Lassie. Tom Hollinger, owner of Margaret H., the sorrel mare that lowered the colors of Directress last Saturday, still is thinking of the offer made to him for a race on the 21st with Irish Lassie. It all depends on the conditions Mar garet II shows out after a rest from the real work of her match with Direc tress. Today or tomorroy Mr. Hollin ger will have his racer tried out and if she goes as he thinks she should, the proposal of the Irish Lassie people for a match will be accepted and details fixed. The race would certainly make a most interesting one. .Must Fay Fines. Results are now being recorded of some of the trials that were held early in the present term of the Circuit Court.
