THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER : HONOLULU, MAY 21 , 1S9S.
ii Hi . " I as little expected to get a suit and top coat ready to wear, to fit me so perfectly at these moderate prices, as to 'hear of a night watch man dying in the daytime," facetiously remarked a prominent professional man in our tore, yesterday, who had just bought a Fifteen Dollar fancy worsted suit and a fine Vi cuna silk-lined Spring overcoat bearing this famous label, jf7" There are thousands of men in this city just as fastidious as this vince just as readily if they will but come to our store and give us an opportunity.

More Salaries Discussion Answer From Attorney-General Short Senate Session. SENATE. Eighty-first Day, May 20. The Senate passed on third reading the bill prohibiting the obstruction of navigable waters with wharves, piers and jetties. This carried the commit tee's recommendation and amendment prohibiting the building or maintain ing of piers, jetties or wharves in any harbor, bay or river beyond high wa ter mark. The House bill limited such building or maintenance to beyond low water mark. Antinn was rnstnnnprl tr ATrmrl.-iV on I the bill legalizing the manufacture and sale of wine from grapes of Hawaiian growth. There was a unanimous vote in the affirmative on the passage at third reading of the bill creating a marine park on the east side of the harbor. The House bill providing for the es tablishment of cemeteries passed third reading. At 10:15 o'clock the Senate adjourn ed to Monday. HOUSE. The Appropriation bill was brought up for consideration. Rep. Gear presented the following majority report of the Committee on Health and Education on items in Sen ate bill 5. Salary of traveling and normal in stuctor $6,000. Traveling expenses of normal in structor $500. I agree with the above report in the main, but object to the $500 allowed for traveling expenses of normal in structor at a salary of $6,000 this officer would have ample means for travel ing expenses. Rep. Loebenstein propounded the following to the Minister of the In terior: Kindly state what agreement was entered into by your department and the St. Louis College authorities in re exchange of land for land taken from said college for street purposes and for Nuuanu street improvement. The items under the head of De partment of Public Instruction were taken up for consideration. The report of the majority of the committee was adopted so that now the office of De puty Inspector is done away with and that of Normal Inspector is substitut ed." He will have a salary of $6,000 and will have $500 for traveling ex penses. Rep. Atkinson wanted this item stricken out but his recommenda tion was not considered. "When the consideration of the item "Pay of sub-agent, First District, $3,000," was taken up, Rep. Loeben stein moved to place the words "and clerk" after the word "sub-agent." This would of course do away with the next item of $1,200 for "Pay of clerk, First District." Rep. Loeben stein said that, for the work done by the present incumbent, $3,000 was am- pie. He did not work more than three days in a week for the Government. Outside of this he received money by work performed, such as in Olaa. Rep. Richards arose to the floor and in about a half minuate there was a tempest in the teapot, while the Presi dent and four members of the Senate sat in the back part of the hall and watched developments. The exact thing that took place will be best un derstood by the language of Rep. Richards and the answers of the Speaker. Rep. Richards Now, Mr. Speaker, I move the item pass as in the bill. I think it is little enough. Speaker You really mean that Mr. Richards? Rep. Richards You heard what I said, didn't you? Speaker Yes, I did, but I simply wanted to be sure. One member from Hilo asks for one thing and the other has views directly opposite. I was simply asking for information. Rep. Richards (shaking his finger at the Speaker) That is none of your business. You bet. You have had too much to say in the chair already. Speaker There is no cause for the honorable member to fly off the han dle. He knows I am a little hard of hearing and want to be sure of things. Rep. Richards Mr. Wilcox, tell him to keep his mouth shut and to attend to the duties of the Chair. It is none of his business what I think and what some one else thinks. I don't want him to get up and talk to me that way again. If he cannot hear, I am sorry for him, but let him wait until I am through speaking. I believe the House would support a resolution against Upon considering the latter items in the appropriations for school purposes. tne Chinese question was brought up. j Rep. McCandless deplored the educa- tion of the Asiatics and the Chinese in particular, to the deteriment of white children and Hawaiians. Rep. Achi objected, to such expres- ; sions in the House and the bringing I in of personal antagonistic feelings by ! any member. 1 he Chinese were at present paying more toward the school tax than the whites and natives com bined. If what was sought was the exclusion of the Chinese, then they should not be made to pay school taxes. Rep. McCandless moved to adjourn but the majority were for going on with the business. The items under the Department of Public Instruction were finished and at 12:10 p. m. the House took a recess until 2:30 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. At the opening of the afternoon ses sion Minister Cooper presented the following answers of Attorney General Smith to questions propounded by Rep. McCandless regarding certain persons at the Leper Settlement. "The patients named have been or dered to be brought to Honolulu for re examination by the Board of Examin ers." Reading of the Appropriation bill re sumed. Some of the members began using names in the consideration of certain itmes. Reps. Paris and Gear both ob jected to this. The office and the amount of work to be done should be taken as a basis on which to reckon the salaries. Names should be left out. When it came to the consideration of the matter of Government physicians, Rep. McCandless put in an amendment to the effect that all natives receiving under $600 salary be exempt from pay ing anything for treatment. Rep. Paris mowd for $300. Rep. Gear spoke in favor of a bill or a joint reso lution to the effect of the above. The Appropriation bill would be made un constitutional by the insertion of such a provision. The members kept walking out into the hallway and at 4:15 p. m. the Speaker finally declared the House ad journed. RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING.
