The special committee appointed at
the recent meeting of the Central Im
provement dub to draft a bill for sub
mission to the Legislature with the ob
ject of meeting the obiections raised
concerning the building of tenement
camps in the residential districts, had
a meeting in the Attorney-General's
office on Tuesday night, at which the
particulars of the proposed measure
were talked over. At the conference
were C. W. Ashford, Judge Weaver,
Professor Gilmore, Deputy Attorney
General Whitney, T. F. Lansiner and
The bill as proposed is one to em
power the Board of Supervisors to legis
late against the nuisance, in addition
to which was talked over a proposed
ordinance for the Supervisors to . con
sider when the necessarv nowers had
been conferred on them. It was decided
also to recommend to the Supervisors
the passage of an ordinance drafted by
A. G .M. Robertson, which goes further
than the ordinance now being tested in
the courts, and forbids the occupancy
of the tenement houses alreadv erected
within 500 feet of a schoolhouse. .

THE TRUTH ALWAYS.
" When you are in doubt tell
the truth." It was an experi
enced old diplomat who said this
to a beginner in the work. It
may pass in some thing?, but
not in business. Fraud and de
ception are often profitable so
long a3 concealed; yet detection
is certain sooner or later; then
comes the smash-up and tho
punishment. The best and safc-t
way is to tell the truth all the
time. Thus you make iilcndj
that stick by you, and a reputa
tion that is always worth twen
ty shillings to the pound every
where your goods are offered for
sale. We are able modestly to
affirm, that it is on this basis
that the world-wide popularity of
rests. The people have discov
ered that this medicine is exact
ly what it is said to be, and
that it does what we have al
ways declared it will do. Its na
ture also has been frankly made
known. It is palatable as honey
and contains all the curative
properties of pure Cod Liver
Oil, extracted by us from fresh
cod livers, combined with the
Compound Syrup of Ilypophos
phites and the Extracts of Malt
and Wild Cherry. A combi
nation of supreme excellence
and medicinal merit. Nothing
has been so successful in Ane
mia, Scrofula, Bronchitis, Influ
enza, Loss of Flesh, Wasting
Diseases, and Coughs and Colds.
Dr. Austin D. Irvine, of Canada,
S3y3: "I have used it in cases
where cod liver oil wa9 indica
ted but could not be taken by
the patient, and the results fol
lowing were very gratifying." It
cannot deceive or disappoint you,
is effective from the first dose
and comes to the rescue of those
who have received no benefit
from any other treatment. It
represents the dawn of progress.

the lands in question, which have been
staked off into lots, in eompany with
Superintendent of Public Works Mars
ton Campbell. He said, concerning the
successful outcome of his visit:
"We have managed to get every
thing in pretty good shape in regard
to the town lots and out of about thir
ty people who want lots all but six or
seven will be able to have just what
they have selected. The matter of the
selecting of homesteads in the upper
lands was also taken up and satisfac
tory arrangements have been made.
"In regard to the selection of the
locations. They are on the 999-year
lease proposition, and will be taken up
mainly by the Hawaiians, who seem
to prefer this form of land contract
more than the other nationalities.
"Our trip was a very successful one,
taken all in all, and I shall be able to
make a complete report to Acting Gov
ernor Mott-Smith in regard to Kapaa."

Cladius H. McBride, private secretary
to the Governor and runner-down of
bad Chinamen, wants to come home,
his desire being made apparent in a
cabled request made yesterday of the
Acting Governor for sixty dollars for
an Alameda ticket. The cable also
sprang the possibility that he would
bring the Governor back with him on
the Alameda, although the Governor is
in Washington and so far way from his
secretary that the sailing on that liner
would be a physical impossibility. The

A London city man recently wrote j
to a lawyer in another town asking j
for information touching the standing
of a person there who had owed the
Londoner a considerable sum of money
for a long time. "What property has
he that I could attach?" was one of
the question asked. The lawyer's reply
was to the point. "The person to
whom you refer," he wrote, "died a
year ago. He has left nothing sub
ject to attachment except a widow."
