the various islands in such shape as to permit of automobile tour

roads safe for a "common peoples" touring car, to navigate. Let

With the completion of the new Keatiae-Kailua and Knai"

200 to 1000 feet steep, and is substantially walled where at least
it is dangerous to man or beast.
Considerable credit is due to Hugh Howell, who was the u an
behind the instrument, and to Wilson & Duggan for the cnr fui
and thorough manner of constructing the road. Much of the
natural, wild beauty of the scenery still remains and should t!Vn il

''When you sent Commodore Perrv fifty years ago, you intro
duced us to the world and to Western civilization. Since you in
troduced us to Western civilization we have reorganized our am y
and made the Emperor the head of it. We teach our soldiers never
to fight with our neighbors, and you, gentlemen, can rest assured j
that we will noi declare war with a foreign power unless it is forced
upon us. As long as the Philippines are near us we welcome you
as our neighbors, and we always come to you as your protesre."
jB Inasmuch asitapveirs to be the policy of the Adunistra
tion to enthuse new and younger blood in the Department of Pub
lic Instruction the suggestion has been made that the Board of
Commissions be enlarged to include a representative from each is
lands, or batter still create an Advisory Board to consist of th
Superintendent, the Commissioners and a representative from
each island, who shall serve without pay. The representative
from the islands to be recognized men of standing in the business
community. The object in having men of business ability to serve
would be that their practical idea would lend much to the efficiency
of the department in putting it on a solid systematical basis. Then
again the practical knowledge of what is most needed on the islam. s
could be brought forth much more concisely and to the point than
through the school inspector who possibly is in too close touch
with the teachers. It has been offered that an Advisory Board ot
this nature would have a tendary to lessen criticism and make the
Department of Public Instruction a more representative body.

jQ The Board of Trade of Hilo is having samples of Olona fiber
prepared for the purpose of submitting the same to experts and
manufacturers, with a view of finding a market for the product,
which is growing wild on the mountain slopes of Hawaii. Olona is
equal to the best Manila hemp, and its durability is unexcelled by
any other known rope fiber. Specimens of olona fishline used
years ago by native fishermen attest to its durability and strong
qualities. Something lite a year and a half ago samples of Olona
were specially prepared And sent to the Department of Agriculture
ao Washington and by them distributed to various rope factories
who made a test of the same, but as there was no machinery in
uso which would develop it satisfactory the report was far trcm
satisfactory. The manufacturers claim that to properly handle
this fiber and mitte it of commercial value, would require the build
ing of special machinery which of its self would make rope or t? i:u
manufactured from Olona a rather expensive proposition, especial
y as there are so many more known fibres growing for whicl
machinery ;s built, thev would not encourage thesbii -mint of Ci.r
