In Memory of
Senators To Attack Rate Bill In England These
It is a source of no small wonder to competent judges of good
tobacco that c are able to produce for only ten cents a cigar so per
fect from every point of view as our celebrated
Genera! Arthur Cigar.
It is true that the Havana we are now using is choicer Havana
than1 is being put into any other cigar to-day.
It is true that in workmanship, flavor, and thorough reliability the
General Arthur cigar is wonderfully good.
These things are made possible by the magnitude of our, opera
tions with a small concern it would be absolutely impossible.
The capital and resources of the largest cigar manufacturing
business in America can reasonably be expected to produce results
which far surpass the efforts of, an ordinary enterprise.

KfRBS, WERTHEIM I SCHirFER,
The report of the County Engineer
was omitted last week on account of
lack of space. We give it here
with in full.
To the Honorable Board of Supervi
ors of the County cf Maui,
Wailuku, Mau', H. T.
I have the honor to present here
with my report a.s County Engineer
for the Month of April.
The bulk of the work in this. Dis
trict as usual has been repairing and
rebuilding bridges and culverts.
Wahinepee Culvert, which was
washed away by the unusually large
flood in February has been replaced,
in a solid condition, and it is hoped it
will now withstand the heaviest
A new floor has been laid on the
bridge at upper crossing of Kuikui
ula, Keanae, the pier and the upper
structure of Heleleikeoho bridge have
been completed, and a number of
bridges that were, otherwise sound
have been given a thorough coat of
carbolineum and crude oil. Sand
and gravel for building piers at Ka
hawaihapapa bridge have been col
lected, and work on the piers will
begin as soon as a man can be obtain
ed to do the work.
Work on the roads has been con
fined strictly to repair work, such as
clearing away the lantana and guava
and keeping ditches aad drains clear.
There still remains about 12,000 of
repair work to do on the bridges to
render them safe for travel, and I
trust that this will go on steadily to
completion. Very little new work
can be taken up iu this district until
further funds are available.
The largest item of expenditure in
this district has been the preparation
of the rock crushing plant at Paia,
getting out rock for crusher, grading,
etc., for macadamizing the lVia-
Makwao road. About 600 enUc
yards of stone is broken and piled at
the crusher which will macadamize
about 2,000 feet of road.
Grading has been rather slow, but
now with mules it will go on faster.
Will start macadamizing next week.
The Ulupalakua Kahikinui trail
that was petitioned for, is being
cleared of rocks and lantana and put
in good shape. The extent of this
work is about 7 miles, and It is about
The fencing contract on the new
Hnelo road is going along well and
the contractor is doing good work.
It will be finished in about two weeks.
I have made a survey for a reloca
tion of the Paia Makawao road from
a point a little above the Paia Church
to the junction with the Kahului-Spreckelsville-Makawao
pyside. The grade on the old road
between these points is quite steep
and gives frequent trouble to trains,
besides being difficult to keep in re
pair. The grades are as steep as
20 in places.
TLe grade on the new line is no
where over 6, and for only a shcrt
distance has 5 been exceeded. The
total length of the new road to build
will be 3,900 feet, which will cost
about $1,500. The line leaves the old
road a little above Mr. Murdock's,
and crosses the gulch on the west
and runs through the pasture. Right
of way has been obtained through
the pasture, on condition of fencing
and exchanging the old road for the
new, which seems to me to be fair.-
The total distance between Paia and
Makawao will be lengthened only 100
feet by the change. The distance
from Paia to the Seminary will be
increased about 1,000 feet, but the
time of travel will really be less, for
the new road will admit of trotting
the whole way. I recommend that
this work be undertaken at once by
I have a'so made a survey of the
new road from t'auweia towards
Halehaku, which is to be the future
belt road when connected. The con
struction contemplated for the pres
ent would begin at the Waikina
bridge at the bottom of Pauwela
Gulch atid run from the East, with a
maximum grade of 5 grade in gen
eral, but which should be increased to
7 in Kaupakulua Gulch on account
of its great size and cost of construc
The line has has been run out a
little over 3 miles to the first home
stead in Ulumalu, but from there on
it can be extended half a mile more
for a few hundred dollars.
It seems to me it be would be bet
ter to build this road by contract, or
as much of it as desirable 10 build at
A regular inspector would not be
required on this road, as the princi
pal work would be grading, for which
an inspection once or twice a mouth
The largest single item of expendi
ture in the Waihiku District has
been at the rock crushing plant at
Camp 3, which will ba ready for
macadamizing by tomorrow or next
day. Over 800 cubic yards of . rock
are broken and piled ready for the
crusher, which is sufficient tc macada
mize 2,400 feet of road. This work
has been delayed 5 or 6 days by the
rain, otherwise crushed rock would
have been on the road by this time
It has been found that the use of
oil, even the light grade oil obtain
able at lvanului is a decided success
as a binder for top dressing of our

the freshly laid screenings near the

the oil tends to cement the fine
particles of rock together so as to
form a smooth,' elastic and impervious
I have had some correspondence
with the representatives Of the Union
Oil Co., relative to the matter of ol-
taining a supply of heavier grade of
oil with an asphaltum base a copy
of which is attached.
I think it Is a very wise policy to
enter into a contract with the oil
company, agreeinglto take, say at
least, $5,000 worth of oil per year, to
be divided between the several dis
tricts. It is not improbable that we
could guarantee to take more, say
$2,500 apiece for the Wailuku, Maka
wao and Lahaina Districts. I trust
that some action on this may be tak
en by the Board at the present ses
sion. It is highly probable that oil
may be secured in this manner for
$1.00 per bbl. or less. The cost of the
oiling above mentioned was less than
i cent per square foot or 10 cents pe
running foot for a 20 ft. road. With
proper equipment of carts, pump an
pipe line this cost could be materially
Work is going along steadily on
the Iao road at a fair rate of pro
gress, so that by the time the Terrl
torial contract Is finished the County
work will have been completed, or
nearly so, aud the whole road thrown
open to the 'public.
The steel bridge on the main road
across Iao stream has been thorouhly
overhauled, scraped aud chipped
free of rush and given a good coat of
P. & B. paint. When this coat is
thoroughly hardened, another coat
will be applied, which will protect
the metal from rust for many years
The Kabakuloa trail from the end
of new road at Marshall's place, has
been repaired and put in as good
shape as is consistent with the class
of road, and work has almost bee
completed as far as the boundary of
Noted Patrior with Smoot Case.

D. Tompkins was five limes Governor
f the S'ate of New York and twice
Vice-President of the United States.
Through his endeavors slavery was
bolished in this State. He was one
f the most active figures in the war
of 1S12. It remained for one man.

Hornellsville, the present grand
master cf the Masonic order in the
State of New York, to start the
movement which will result in erect
ing a memorial to Governor Tompkins
in City Hall Park. Governor Tomp
kins was secretary of the Grand
odge of the State from 1802 to 1804,
and later grand master of the organization.
The model of the memorial has
been completed. It represents Gov
rnor Tompkins seated in a chair,
The figure will be of bronze, resting
on a white marble pedestal, with fig
ures in relief on the sides. It will be
wenty feet high.
Governor Tompkins was the son of
onathan G. Tompkins, a Revolution
ary soldier and was born at J?ox
Meadows (now Scarsdale) in West
Chester county, June 1, 1774. Tomp
kins was nrst eletted tiovernor in
1807. In April, 1816, Governor Tomp
kins was nominated for Vice-Presi
sent and elected. He was reelected
Vice-President in 1820. Ho was again
proposed for Governor in the same
year. His popularity had waned in
the State, however, and enemies, un
able to understand his accounts dur
ing the war of 1812, made charges of
dishonesty against him. The shock
of these accusations was so great
that the patriot's mind gave way,
and he became the victim of a settled
melancholy. In desperation he sought
refuge in dissipation, which hastened
his end. He retired to Staten island
and died there almost in want on
June 11, 1825. Tardy justice was
done in the mattei of the war funds,
and the State paid a considerable
amount to his family.

case is to be made the basis of a
grand Senatorial filibuster attack
against the rate bill. Such is a story
now atloat in Senatorial circles.
The Senate committee ti-day heai d
the last argument on the measures.
Volume upon volumes of testimony
has been taken and the whole West
ern country has been searched at
great expense for witnesses on one
side or the other. The case is now
completed. The lawyers have been
instructed to have their written ar
guments before the committee early
next week. The committee will take
up the case and, if the story of its
relation to the rate legislation is not
purely (iactional, it will be reported
its soon as possible.
There will be two reports, accord
ing to this account. The majority, it
is expected, will favor the exclusion
of Smoot; the minority will favor
leaving him in his seat, or at least
will be of the opinion that he cannot
be expelled with less than a two
thirds vote. With these conflicting
reports there will be an opportunity
for endless debate in the great mass
of evidence and the conflicting legal

imprisonment in 1H!.' for extens ve
frauds in connection with the Land
Allotment Company and the House
and Land Investment Trust of the
Liberator group of companies, was
released this mor.iing from the pri
son or the Isle of Wight. For the
past two years Balfour had acted as
librarian of the prison. It is said he
will probably return to the Argentine
Republic, from where he was extra
dited before his trial, and where it is
said he holds considerable interests
in different trade concerns. It is
estimated that the poor middle class
of England lost about $30,000,000 by
Balfour's swindling operations.
Jabez Balfour was convicted of
extensive breaches of trust In band-
ling the funds entrusted of him by
poor people. He crimes were almost
parallel with the disversion of the
money of policyholders into the pock
ets of the officials of insurance com
pauies. The exposures made in the
investigation conducted by the Arm
strong committee showed breaches
of trust by insurance officials more
criminal than anything found against
Balfour. In England they send such
criminals to the penitentiary for a
long term of years.

A new concrete steel bridge has been
put in at the stream in Ukumehame,
consisting of two spans of twelve
feet clear each. This has always been
a troublesome crossing and at times
teams have been unable to cross. A
wooden bridge that was formerly

ago by a heavy freshet and none ever

will withstand the heaviest fresbests
without damage, and is designed to
