Food For The beautiful and enterprising1 city "f Ketllanils
Thought bas votod $100,000 for street improvements.
The vote stood 1082 tor the proposition nnd 102 ngninst it,
which shows that, the inhabitants arcs almost unanimously
progressive. The proposed improvements consist, of one
half mile of asphalt payment, twenty-throe miles of maca
damized roadways and fifteen miles of oiled streets. S. F.
Hilo has about as much trouble in the dry season keeping down
the dust as Wailuku. Just recently1 the Hilo board experimented
with oil for the street leading down to Waiakea and it proved so
successful that other streets have been or will be oiled.
On Hawaii little or no preparation was found necessary to make
the roads and streets stand the heavy rains. The Nkws would
suggest that the Wailuku Roard Board take a strip of Main or
High street, which ever it may be. and do a little experimenting.
Good streets and roads havebeeven better and more economically
kept in good order after a treatment of oil than before.
More The town of Alameda, California, has passed a law '
Food compelling property owners to clean weeds from
their premises, and is now taking a "weed census" to see
whether the law is being carried out. All lots not cleaned
by the owners will be taken in hand by the city, and the
owners compelled to pay the cost of cleaning. It is a law
that might well be made universal.--Advertiser.
While we have no municipal government to make such laws, still
some such resolution might be made by our Hoard of Supervisors
which would not only ensure property owners keeping their
premises clear of weeds, but the streets free of weeds and grass.
Most likely this will all come when the Supervisors authorize
the building of the new sidewalks and he establishing of a uniform
street and sidewalk grade.
Results County officials outside of Oahu may have waited
Talk ''local self-government" pretty badly, but they
are convinced that they ought to have t he Territorial gov
ernment over them in an advisory capacity and in partner
ship on expenses. Evidently the outlying counties don't
like to be Hftoat on the high seas without a strong mooring
line fastened to the capitol. Advertiser.
What's the use of having a parent if it is not to teach us. Maui
county so far has been conducting her affairs with less friction than
Oahu where contests have occured and considerably less than Ha
waii county where the police force ig dual. Just Ion vt) it to Maui
county to make the best showing in self government and li nances
before the end of the year.
Wireless From Golden Gate to Honolulu, to Manila and
Achievements thence to Yokohama is the latest project of
the wireless telegraph according to late despatches from S in Fran
cisco. With the showing already made and the successful tests
made on the Atlantic there seems to bo no question but what this
latter project will be carried out and bo equally successful. Sure
ly Hawaii seems to be coming in for her share of the good things
made possible by the opening up of the Philippines and commer
cial activity in the Orient.
European French Consul Vizzavona who has been sta
La borers tioned in Hawaii for the last sixteen years
and probably knows the labor conditions in Hawaii as well if
not better than any of the Consuls, asid.9 from those who have busi
ness connections, Is a native of Corsica in the Mediterranean, and
has had much to do with the laboring classes of both Spain and
Italy, believes that of all European labor, that of Italy would prove
the best for the plantation work of the islands. In their own coun
try they are very frugal and as ambitious as circumstances and
the conjested conditions that obtain there will permit. They are
natural born agriculturalists and would easily adapt themselves to
the prevailing local conditions. Monsieur Vizzavona believes that
if they were paid a fair wage no more than is now being paid to
the Japanese huis which are doing the labor necessary to raise
cane medical attendance, house and firewood free, with a small
tract of land divided off into still smaller patches where they cau
raise their own vegetables, the planters can obtain as many as
needed. As a precautionary measure he coincides with the proposi
tion to give them direct transportation by water, otherwise it. will
be the old story of a few here and a few there being enticed to
i "stop off." The suggestion of George H. McClellan that many of
the Congressmen would consider Chinese labor for these islands, if
the lands not otherwise employed, were developed for the Ameri
can farmer; and American mechanics or those eligible to become
citizens employed in lines where skilled labor is required, should
have more than a passing thought. It is to the Congressmen,
that Hawaii must look for any measure or measures beneficial to
the future prosperity of our uuiin industry.
If it is impossible for the eastern silk manufacturer to find a
suitable location on Oahu with the necessary shipping facilities,
possibly Maui can hold out an inducement to locate on the valley
island, with equally as good if not better shipping facilities than
Oahu can offer.

Circular On Immigration.
IIONOLCLt", July 26. It is expected
that the Hawaiian Sugar riantcrs' Asso
ciation will hold n meeting to-morrow
morning mid that the malterof ICuropean
immigration mid the plantation lalior
problem will be discussed to the extent
of settling on the form of n circular letter
to lie addressed the managements of nil
sugar plantations throughout the Terri
tory, calling ujKn them to outline what
plans they cau make to offer inducements
to while labor from Kurope.
A special committee of the Planters'
Association has been at work on a form
of circular letter nnd this will lie submitt
ed nt the next meeting.
Land and other conditions differ with
the various plantations ami all could not
hold out the same inducements, but it is
anticipated that there will be certain pro
positions uioii which all plantations can
agree and in this way local sugar interests
can come to some conclusion as to the
terms te be offered Kuropeau immigrants.

Gun c!ubs in which the gentler sex are
members are very numerous in the main
land, and is an outdoor sport which
should be encouraged, as it accustoms the
mothers and daughters to the use of fire
arms. Kihei is the first on Maui to estab
lish a gun club and the second on the is
lands. No. more pleasurable outdoor
sport in which there is so much action
and excitement is to be had, and it is to
be hoped more clubs will be formed and
friendly shoots indulged in monthly or

There nre no deaths from heat prostra
tion in Hawaii and suu strokes are un
known. While the hospitals of the large
cities of the mainland are crowded with
sufferers from heat, and hospital corps
are working overtime caring for the in
mates, the residents of the Hawaiian Isl
ands are enjoying a semi tropical summer
when the sun is teuijHTed with cool
trade winds. No wonder tourists say that
the Hawaiian Islands should become po
pular as a slimmer as well as a winter re
sort. If the old udage aixiut " a hot sum
mer means a cold winter " is worth any
thing, the Hawaiian Promotion Commit

office says that within the next few days,
ten additional lock boxes will lie in
stalled, and the entire set of lioxes will be
These additional new boxes have In
come necessary in order to meet the
growing demand, caused by the install
ing of county officers and by citizens who
have not been able so far to obtain a box.
The law provides that the postmasters
of all third class post office must provide
sufficient a number of 1oxes to meet the
demand, which postmaster Vetlesen has
A fact which probably is not generally
known to the reading public is that all
improvements in third class offices must
be made by the landlord or the postmas
ter Jand in this case the expense is as
sumed f?y Postmaster Vetlesen privately.
Mr. Vetlesen has gone still further and
has ordered from the coast new box
numbers, a letter and a paper drop plate,
so that with the installing of the new
Ikixcs and the new numbers, the post
office at Wailuku will have ninety lock
boxes and a very much improved appearance.
