WHY HE RESIGNED.
Assistant Secretary Vanderlip Was
After James Girvin's Scalp.
The statement in a morning paper
that James W. GIrvia of tho census
buieau had resigned has started a story
to the effect that the "resignation" was
made on request from Washington that
Mr Girvin be removed. A man claiming
to be familiar with all the circumstances
said to ThevRepubiican
that Superintendent Merriam of
census had written here directing
the Immediate removal of .Mr. Girvm
on charges filed by Assistant Secretary
of the 'Iroxsurj Frank Underlip. The
reasons for Mr. Underlip's objections
to Mr. Girvin's employment by the government
were said to be based on the
batter's employment in the Chinese inspection
bureau two years ago, when
it U alleged that Mr. Gin-in sold blank
(.eitificates to Chinese which enabled
a number of Chinese to come here contrary
a. 1 Atkinson, supervisor of the census
for Hawaii, when seen yesterday
about the matter, acknowledged that
such a communication had been re-
j, ceived from Superintendent Merriam,
tut as the work of the supervisor's office
was practically completed, Mr. Girvin
wal allowed to resign.
"I want to say this for Mr. Girvin,"'
?aid Mr. Atkinson. "He has rendered
excellent service in the census work,
and so far as I know of the man he is
thoroughly reliable and competent. 1
know nothing of the old charges; in
faot never heard of them hefore. Mr.
Girvin was highly recommended as an
assistant in the census work by some
or the leading citizens of Honolulu,
and it was largely on these recommendations
that he was appointed. If
there had been anything wrong in his
tvork under the treasury department it
Eeems strange to me that men who recommended
him should not have known
of it And even if It were true, why

Ontario, submits a very interesting
report to the state department on
the experiments with tar-macadam

the many improvements in progress
in Honolulu the following extracts
from Mr. Shepard's report will prove
interesting to readers of Th? Republican:
After years of experiment, this city
is laying a pavement that for excellence,
durability and cheapness is commended
for examination to thosa in

The possibility of making good roads
at reasonable-cost hasr been demon

cost of repairing on heavy-traffic

per year, while, asphalt costs over. Z
cents. " i
The addition of tar renders the roadway
impervious to water, frost proof
in winter, and prevents mud and dust
in summer. It is easily repaired and
does not require scraping, thus avoiding
much wearing of the surface.

perceptible wear today. In residential

CiUFOKMNS AAE IIS DUPES
HIS VALUELESS CHECKS ARE
FLOATING ALL OVER HA-
WAITd CHIEF CITT.
Rumors That He Did Business
with Chinese and Japanese for
the Internal Revenue Department.
Metz, the deputy United States marshal
for the Island of Hawaii, has ben
heard from again. This time he is not
"coming back from San Francisco in
a atort time" and he did not send any
confidential messages to his chief, by
thi grace of President McKinley and
"the pull" of Senator Cullom, to the
United States marshal of Hawaii.
On the contrary, he worked a
game on some fellow in San
i jnciaco on the strength of his
as deputy United States marshal,
inducing him to cash a valueless
diafi on a Honolulu bank, an institution
in which Metz has no funds at
present and never did have. The draft
Tas returned to San Francisco unpaid,
of course, and the United States
snvice and Hawaii given a very black
eyo. The first query of the San
bankers will be, "What sort of
people are holding office under the
United States in the new Territory of
Hawaii?" The insignia of office of a
deputy United States marshal is always
regarded as a badge of honor.
They are ever selected with unusual
car and a trace of scandal in connection
with them means an investigation.
This was neglected in the case of Metz
and the McKinley administration is responsible
for his wrong-doing.
Thu fraudulent draft is the last of
Metz's crookedness, if the stories Hilo
pecple tell be true. He distributed
quite a number of checks drawn on
tho bank of C. B. Bishop & Co. before
leaving Hilo. Captain Soule, for In
stance, holds two of them, and there
are others. These are, of course,
worthless, Metz never having had an
account in that bank. None of these
checks have as yet beenpresentedl'to
the bank for payment, but inquiry had
fcec made concerning the value of such
checks and the cheerful information
wis given out that they were "no
gc od." Mr. Waity said yesterday that
none of these checks had been presented
at the bank as yet, though they
ti sght be presented later.
Before leaving Honolulu for his post
of duty at Hilo, Metz called on Mr.
Haywood, United States collector of
internal revenue, and offered to serve
the department in any way possible.
He was intrusted with some applies
lion blanks for distribution. That was
j'tst to the hand of Metz and some
startling- stories are told as to the uso
he made of these blanks. The Chinese
and Japanese dealers are easily
alarmed, especially when a man appears
with a badge and papers of unquestioned
genuineness. They are both
prompt "settlers" and have no conception
of getting out of trouble but by
paying the way with gold. But that Is
another story and will be exploited
Metz came to these islands in a cloud
of mystery, "by way of Japan," and no
cne on Hawaii seems to know how he
left there. He was a man of mystery,
who seemed to have hypnotized Marshal
As to that official it should be stated
tbat a reporter of this paper was instructed
to inform the marshal that
Metz was undoubtedly an adventurer;
that he was certainly a deserter from
the army and that The Republican held
proof to that effect This information
was delivered to Mr. Hendry, chief
clerk of the marshal, who realized
lt3 importance. The same facts were
laid before Marshal Ray, who resented
the act and got on his dignity, as much
dignity as that oficial can command.
These revelations were made to the
marshal before a line was published
concerning' Metz and they were made
to protect the republican party from
scandal, and this was plainly told both
Mr. Hendry and Marshal Ray.
When these well-meant efforts were
found useless, the true character of
Metz was portrayed In this paper.
When Metz carried away a friend's
watch the facts came to this office from
three source: the office, of the United
States marshal, where the man who
lost the watch made a. complaint in
person; from Walkikl Inn. where tho
watch was taken, and from the police
stJtJon, where the facts were reported.
That episode was well known to the-marshal;

METZ HAD HO AUTHORITY
FROM REVENUE DEPARTMENT
Revenue Collector Haywood, when
iu.oimed of the report that it waa
reported Deputy United States Marshal
Metz had wronged Chinese and Japanese
on the Island of Hawaii on the
strength of blanks that had been furnished
him by that office, said: "I
gave Metz a number of application
bl&nks, which he said he would distribute
among dealers at Hilo as an accommodation
to me. He had no official
connection with my office. We
distribute blanks and circulars quite
frequently in this manner when some
cne Is making a trip to the other islands.
Metz had absolutely no authority,
by word or in writing, to collect
any money. Even my deputies have no
tch authority. If he has collected
money as rumored his action is a matter
to be considered Jy the United
Marshal or the civil authorities
the same as other cases of obtaining
money under false pretenses."

it a felony for any person to represent
himself to be a revenue collector or to

There was a wholesale walk-cut at
the Mutual Telephone Exchange yesterday
and eighteen young ladles who
have heretofore answered calls from
patient subscribers, or sweetly murmured,
"line busy, at the local helkj
works, are no longer engaged In that
business, or will they continue to draw
the princely stipend of $20 a month.
Seven hollo girls were attempting
to operate the switchboard at the central
telephone station during the busy
hoars of the afternoon. That they
were new at the business and did no;
thoroughly understand the Intricacies
ot the system was painfully pparvnt
to the visitor as well as to the long-suffering
patrons, who, because of the
faulty manner in which the present
tfiephone system Is operated, haw
cultivated a lurid and sulphurious vocabulary
of naughty things, whien.

them to do too much, whl"h

to the newly arrived telephone expert
from San Francisco, Mr. Cochran, who
raently came over on the Australia.
Mr. Cochran really did not know just
where the blame laid, aad If the new

from the lack, of force notwithstanding
several and sundry, ranting
anc raving subscribers who were seriously
considering the feasibility of operating
a message delivery by posVol
cards, believing this to be as speedy aa
tho present system and as equally reliable.
Although not committing themselves,
the management expressed the opinion
that they would secure new girls for

positions as soon as they could be
found. Whether the additional force
will be drawn from the girl3 of tho
mainland was not vouchsafed.
