Need of Fire The tire of Thursday makes plain the nuod of
Protection. certaiu improvements for the better protection
in case of fire.
It is but a question of tune when a fire will start on Market
street and unless some other method is in vogue than is now in
practice many thousands of dollars worth of property will be des
troyed. It has been suggested that a tire hose and cart be stationed on
Market street and those living on the street drilled in the art of
manipulating the hose. It is certain that if a fire should be start
ed by oil as was the caso Thursday by the time the cart from the
fire station cojld be brought into play it would be too late to be
There are several hundred persons on Market street who can be
depended upon to act promptly in case of an emergency and just
recently N. K. Otsuka volunteered his services in forming a com
pany and assisting in drilling them for the protection of property
any where in case of fire.
Even those who may entertain race prejudice must admit that
the Orientals could be of great service in a case of this kind and in
an emergency quick and effective service must be had or great
financial loss will be sustained by many persons of all nationalities.
Their offer is a most commendable one and should be accepted.
An improvement that might mean the saving of thousands of
dollars worth of property would be the employment of a vehicle of
almost any description to haul the hose cart to the scene of lire.
On the coast a standing offer is made, in the towns where volun
teer fire companies are the only means of tire protection, to any
team to take the cart to the scene of trouble and for which service
a fee of from two to five dollars is paid to the team that can first
get to the cart and draw it to the fire. This saves the men who
are required to put forth every effort after reaching the fire to ex
tinguish it and insures getting the cart in action much quicker
than it is possible otherwise.
The hose now available is entirely inadequate and the amount
should be trebled. All the company now has is but one thousand
feet. The amount that may b9 needed at any time is at least three
times this amount.
The need of better control which may be had by drilling is an
other matter of importance. At the fire Thursday some one shut
off all the water that goes to Kahului. This may have been neces
sary for the time being but whoever shut off the water should
either have turned it on again or reported the fact to the tire com
pany or to the Superintendent of the Water works. As this was
not done there was no water in the pipes in Kahului on Friday
morning and as a consequence the people there were without water
for domestic purposes while the Railroad Company was without
sufficient water for the engines.
Alcohol and The use of power other than horse power js
Gasoline. yearly becoming more general on the farms
of the United States. Gasoline is at present used very largely as
the source of this power, but it is possible that under the provi
sions of the alcohol law which went into effect January 1, 1907,
denatured alcohol may co-ne into use as a fuel for engines in agri
cultural operations and may to some extent displace gasoline
With a view of determining principally what changes, if any, are
necessary in the gasoline engine to adapt it to the use of alcohol,
and to investigate further whether it will be economical and practi
cal for the farmer to make use of the new fuel, the Department of
Agriculture, through its office of Irrigation and Drainage Investi
gations, has carried on an extensive series of trials and experi
ments, the results of which in popular form are published in Far
mers' Bulletin 277, "The Use of Alcftiol and Gasoline in Farm
These test have established the fact that it is quite possible to
use alcohol in any engine designed for the use of gasoline, although
that use may be decidedly uneconomical unless certaiu changes
are made in the vaporizing device and in the compression pres
sure. Another important fact developed by the test was that fuel econo
my, whether the fuel is gasoline or alcohol, is quite largely a mut
ter of adjustment, and from the discussions of this matter it is
probable that the running cost of such engines may be very ma
terially decreased. The principles of operation and the various
parts of the explosion engine are discussed in a popular way, thus
making the publication one which should prove of much value and
Federal Building The announcement of the selection of the
Site Chosen. Mahuka property in Honolulu for the Fed
eral building will prove satisfactory to the people throughout the
Territory and particularly to the residents of Honolulu.
Had the people of Honolulu had the privilege of selecting the
site this would undoubtedly have been the one selected. Governor
Carter, it is said, did everything in his power to prevent the selec
tion of this site and was severely criticised for the arbitrary
course he persued in the matter.
The fact that the business men of tho city were unanimous in
their choice of the Mahuka site and made their wishes known
seems to have had much weight and after the Mahuka site had
been rejected once it was finally selected in spite of the opposition
Carter has never taken the public into his confidence and this
baa caused him more trouble than any thing else and has done
much to weaken his influence throughout his entire administration.
LOS ANGELES, July 5. "I'm go

Calhoun of the United Railroads mid
William 1 ilerrin, the arcli-crimini.l
of California, to jiil before I'm

one of the leaders of the graft prose
cution in San Francisco, toniglt
while addressing a great gathering
at Simpson Auditorium.
As he hanged his open hand on the
table to emphasize his words, the
great crowd arose and cheered fur
fully two minutes. It was the great
est outburst of enthusiasm tin t Los
Angeles has known.
TIip reputation of General Otis as
an assassin of character is notorious
in the southern part of the State and
Heney could not have hit his hearers
any harder Mian by promising to
send the "Hero of the Rubicon" to
"We're making your light in San
Fraucisco," said Mr. Heney. "We're

fornia in San Francisco, and we're
making the fight of the whole United
States in San Francisco, ond no char
acter assassins like Otis can stop us
for a mi ute. I am going back to

GRILLS HERRIN AND OTIS.
Mr. Heney said he had been behind
the curtains and knew of what he
was speaking. He had discovered
there two persons whose excoriation
vas more grateful to this audience,
who wanted graft exposed, than any
others. These were W. F. Herein,
the boss of the Southern Pacific
machine in California, and H. G.
Otis, who is lending his support to
Patrick Calhoun of tho United Rail
roads and other indicted corporation
"One hundred and thirty-two years
ago," said Heney, "some of your
forefathers threw overboard some
tea in u Bhip lying in Boston harbor
This caused them to voice that great
principal that 'taxation without re
presentation is tyranny.'
"And out of that grew that other
expression of the colonies' attitude
toward the mother country, 'millions
for defense, but not a cent for tri
bute.' 'Taxation without represen
tat ion is tyrauny,' but I tell you that
the King of England didn't have one
tenth the power to tax that Rocke1
feller has, and the King of England
and his Parliament did not exercise
one-thousandth as much power in
levying taxes as does the Southern
Pacific today in California. Why
Otis does not object to Calhoun bo
cause Pat is a good king to him and
pays well for this tribute of loyalty
which he has exacted."
"lie's an auaichiat!" shouted a
voice m the audience
"Yes," said Heney, "he's an an
arch!st, for it's the man who tears
down law and order, the man who
teuchrs class rule, the man who
strives to array one body of men
against another that is the re-il an
archist, and in th's category, Otis is
a shining example.
