TREASURER'S OFFICE.

Honolulu, Oahu, March 8, 1907.

To the Honorable President and

Members of the Senate, 1907, Session of the

Legislature, Territory of Hawaii.

Gentlemen:-In compliance with your Resolution with reference to the enforcement of Chapter 162 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii, relating to the registration of copartnerships, I am able to state that I have enforced all the provisions of said chapter as therein required. In addition, I have given notice by publication that violators of the conditions of said chapter would be prosecuted. Suit was brought in a case that came under my personal observation. At my request, Mr.

Berry, of the Berry Agency, reported supposed cases which came under his notice in connection with the business of that agency. All the clerks in this office have been notified to refuse to issue any license to any partnerships not recorded in compliance with the conditions of said chapter 162, and in compliance with this rule of the office many partnerships have been recorded which otherwise would not have been recorded.

Respectfully yours,

A. J. CAMPBELL,

Treasurer, Territory of Hawaii.

The communication was ordered received and placed on file. A communication (No. 9) from C. S. Holloway, Superintendent of Public Works, submitting his reply to information desired relating to the Hilo, Laupahoehoe and Waimea Water Works, was read by the Clerk as follows:

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS.

Honolulu, T. H., March 8, 1907.

Honorable E. F. Bishop,

President of the Senate,

Honolulu.

Sir: I beg to acknowledge receipt of communication from Mr. Wm. Savidge, Clerk of the Senate, also certified copy of a Resolution adopted by the Senate on March 4th, 1907, calling for certain information relative to the Government Water Works on the Island of Hawaii. The full statement covering the questions asked is submitted herewith on separate sheet, and I trust that it is the information desired.

I might say that some time ago, I handed Honorable W. T. Rawlins, member of the House of Representatives, a statement showing the cost of permanent improvements and repairs on the Hilo, Laupahoehoe and Kamuela Water Works. The figures differ somewhat from those now compiled, this being due to the fact that they were only made up to December 1906.

Yours respectfully,

C. S. HOLLOWAY,

Superintendent of Public Works.
