Before the witness could answer
Senator Mitchell raised his hand and
stopped him. There was a consultation
between the Senators and then Senator
Mitchell declared the session adjourned
until evening. At the hour set he
made the statement of further adjourn
ment and then called the morning ses
sion for 9 o'clock at the same place,
asking all witnesses to be present.
The morning session of the commis
sion was held in the room used by the
Fire Claims Court, so that the records
might be available. There was a very,
large attendance of persons interested
in the claims, and as well a large num
ber of attorneys. The commission was
there on business and no time was lost
in getting down to work.
Chairman F. "W. Macfarlane was the
first witness. He read his report to
Governor Dole, setting forth the work
of the commission and showing the use
to which all the money was put and as
well the amounts realized from fees,
with the additional statement that
there was in the hands of the commis
sion $4386.35, which would have been
used for the repaying the subscription
of the merchants, but for the fact that
there may be suits for the purpose of
recovery of the sums paid in by those
who have taken the certificate of
Mr. Macfarlane then took up the
matter of showing how the court had
reached its final adjudication. He took
up a number of claims and showed the
methods of filing, the plan used in the
taking of testimony and determining
the amount of loss, and finally the en
tering of the judgments. In the cases
submitted there were cases showing the
methods in the instance of personal and
commercial claims.
During the hearing it developed that
in the case or some or tne largest
claimants there had been deducted from
the amount of the claims the sums paid
Dy the insurance companies and this
brought from Senator Burton the
query as to what action was taken in
the matter of the insurance compa
nies, Mr. Macfarlane responding that
it was outside the scope of the court,
under the act creating it. There was
considerable discusion over this mat
ter and then Judge "Whiting asked if in
the case of the claim of Yee Wo Chan
& Company the certificate being issued
with a subrogation of the amount of the
insurance paid, it did not mean that
there was deducted by the commission
$12,000, and that this would be again
taken out by the insurance companies,
the loss in that case falling twice upon
the claimant. The position of the court
was that its duty was to find the loss
and that any agreement between the
claimant and an insurance company
must be a private one, and the notation
on the certificate was simply done un
der the act of the claimant.
Judge Sillima'n in the case of a mer
chandise claim that he represented,
tried to show that the commission
found a result and then took off one
third arbitrarily, asking if this was not
done without regard to the state of the
goods of the claimant. This was denied
by the chairman.
There was also some question on the
matter of the cutting in half of personal
claims where the claimant did not ap
pear in person, and the explanation
was given that there was a decision
that this would be the most equitable
plan and this course was followed in
every instance.
The application of . the amount paid
into this government recently by the
national government on account of in
terest on the bonds outstanding to the
payment of the fire claims was brought
up and the Senators were told that that
was outside the province of the court
as Its duty was only the adjudication

When an incident like the following
occurs right here at home, it is bound
to carry weight with our readers. So
many strange occurrences go the
rounds of the press; are published as
facts, people become skeptical. On one
subject skepticism is rapidly disappear
ing. This is due to the actual experi
ence of our citizens, and their public
utterances regarding them. The doubt
er must doubt no more in the face of
such evidence as this. The public state
ment of a reputable citizen living right
in Honolulu, one whom you can see
every day, leaves no ground for the
skeptic to stand on.

Governor Dole was asked if he had
any statement to make and responded
that he had not, but was ready to an
swer questions if there were any to be
asked. Senator Mitchell asked him
how many bills he vetoed, and he said
that he could not give an answer at
ence, but among tne numutr was uue
reducing the tax on female dogs and
another establishing city and county
governments. The latter he said was a
bulky document, which he invited the
Commission to read and which he, after
some inspection, concluded it was the
wisest course to let die.
I am in favor of the passage of a bill
which shall enact an organic act for

in answer to Senator Mitchell's question
as to his view, "leaving to the various
communities the right to so organize
themselves when they see fit, and not
thp compulsory organization of such
corporations." Asked to his opinion
as to the control of the public lands,
Gov. Dole said that he favored the
leaving of the control here as the local
government was in close contact with
the rfeeds of settlers and kept in touch
with the local conditions while the gov
ernment at Washington would be
handicapped by the absence of distinct
local knowledge. He explained the con
ditions of purchase of public lands and
as to leases.
