against the item was that as the food
inspector did not go out in the city and
inspect the poi that was being served
out to the natives; the office should be
abolished.
Senator Brown said it was impossible
for the food analyst to inspect every
article of food consumed in the city. If
such action was reuqired it would take
five hundred inspectors to do the work;
furthermore, it was the duty of every
person, who, upon the purchase of any
articles of food found any impuri
ties in such foods, to report the fact to
the analyst for examination, and if
found impure, prosecution would fol
low. Senator Kalauokalani could not see
the matter in that light, evidently hav
ing "poi" on the brain.
Up to the taking of the noon recess
the discussion was still going on in
regard to the item under dispute, and
the matter was referred until the after
noon session.

mittfcd to this House, asked for an ap
propriation of $45,5S0 for this service for
the next biennial period.
The burden is laid upon your commit
tee to recommend whether the Govern
or's estimates should be granted; or
would it not be better on principle of
economy, to reduce the same; and if not,
then for tne Legislature to permit the
appropriations for military to lapse for
the biennial period?
In face of the present depleted condi
tion of the Treasury, your committee
can not ask this House to pass the rec
ommendation made by the Governor.
Having thus disposed of the first propo
sition, your committee begs leave to say,
that they having information in advance
as to some expenditures under this de
partment f the Government, and believ
ing it to be in the interests of proper
legislation that this House be thorough
ly informed on the conduct of this
branch of the service in the past, your
committee has taken the liberty to re
quest from the Auditor General of this
Territory information respecting the ex
penditures on account of the military,
band and Citizens' guard appropriations
from January 17. 1S93, to December 31,
1900, and the detailed list of the expen
ditures from January 1 of this year to
date of making the inquiry, and they
are hereto attached as exhibits 1, 2 and
3 and made parts ol this report. They
have also received from the military de
partment a report explaining the various
ittms as set forth in the appropriations
for the m;litary, etc.
Your committee feels that we cannot
better serve the purposes of this report
than submitting the above statements of
the auditing and military departments
as received by them.
We feel in a measure a reluctance to
going into the details of the period cov
ered by exhibit 1, inasmucn as It covers
that period with which Hawaii was sub
merged in the "volcanio eruption" of po

rivert from such Act. This committee
thinks that the Act In question is re
stricted and repealed by implication by
sp-t!nn s of the Organic Act, as the pro
vision there contained Is direct that the
Legislature of the Territory (not the past
i.esiaturo of the Republic) may au
thorize loans; the loan If made under
Act 71 of the Republic would not have
been authorized by the Legislature of
the Territory of Hawaii.
Another ground upon which the Act 71
may be said to be repealed by implica
tion is the direct provisions of the Or
ganic Act as the term of the bonds au
thorized under It, are: 5-20's years, those
of the Organic Act. 5-15-s. Act 71 would
eertainlv require some amendment in
this respect; we cannot: interject the
word fifteen in place of twenty, or, to
be more correct, the Act shfluld be re
enacted, In our opinion, with whatever
changes are made necessary by the Or
ganic Act. by the Legislature of the
Territory of Hawaii; it would then be
an authorized loan under the Organic
Act. The fact that our Organic Act has
provided for the necessary cnangee ur
substitutions in certain laws. or. as
more correctly stated by the heading to
section 9 of the Organic Act, amendment
of official titles, does not in itself give
the power to Interject tnose omciai uu
AFTERNOON SESSION.
CDon the Senate convening at 2
o'clock. Senator Cecil Brown was rec
ognized, and said he hoped the Senators
would not strike out the item referring
to the food analyst. The office, he said,
was a very necessary one, for if there
was any food in which impurities were
found, it was the duty of every one
to report such matters to the food In
spectors, and prosecution would follow
such exposure- As an example of the
value of the office, he said, since the es
tablishment of the food inspectorship,
the practice of selling ground com and
barley for coffee had been surpressed,
and in many other cases too numerous
to mention, the office had proven in
valuable. In conclusion, he hoped the
item wonld pass as in the bill.
Senator Russel was then recognized,
and offered the following amendment:
"Salary- of food commissioner and an
alyst fincludirg poi), $4,200."
Senator Kalauokalani seconded the
amendment, which carried upon the
show of hands.
The salary of physicians, which was
recommended by the committee to pass
as in the bill, with a few minor changes.
into Act 71, so that it may be made to was then taken up.
j ernment claims which are being con
sidered by the Fire Commission are
'not being represented by the Attorney-
General, or someone from his office.
The afternoon was spent ln work. For
the first time in three or four weeks
the legislators settled down to honest
effort, and considered the matter of
salaries. It was not until 4:30 that the
House adjourned for the day.
MORNING SESSION.
The first work of the morning of any
significance, was the presenting of the
report on military affairs. The docu
ment, with its tables and foot notes,
required some twenty odd pages for
presentation. The tabular portion of
the document consumed some eight or
nine pages. This latter portion of the
report, in full, is as follows:
