Cofer's In the matter of the Appointment of Doctor
Appointment. L. Cofer as President of the Board of Health
the Evening Bulletin, in its issue of the loth instant has the follow
ing editorial that expresses our views on the subject so exactly
that -we give the same in full and endorse the utterances therein
"The appointment of Dr. L. E. Cofer as the executive head of the
Board of Health undoubtedly marks the first step toward the Fed
eral control of sanitary conditions in the Territory of Hawaii.
"This is the significance of the appointment.
"There is no abler man in this Territory, and mighty few in the
United States. Dr. Cofer's administration of the quarantine service
of this port has been of a character to inspire the confidence of all
people who understand the difficulties and the importance of his
office. His constructive work at the United States Quarantine
Station has proved his ability to do a great deal with limited funds.
"Those who believe that the sanitary administration of the Is
lands should be under the direction of the Federal Government
and eventually carried on at its expense, will be pleased with the
Governor's action. Those who view with alarm the Federal en
croachment of authority will be displeased. ;
"So far as the Bulletin is concerned, Federal administration ac
companied by the acceptance of Federal naucial responsibility
will do Hawaii a world of good.
"So far as the Republican party is concerned, the move made by
the Governor violates the spirit of its early declarations madedur
ing the time when ex-Governor Carter was in the ranks of the
political leaders, and therefore the party is put in the position of
either changing front or straddling.
"Mr. Pinkham will withdraw from bis position with a record for
work well done that has not been duplicated by any predecessor,
and his successors will have great difficulty in equaling it. He has
been more widely and vigorously endorsed than any man who has
ever been proposed for an office in this Territory He has the out
spoken respect of the respectable and honest element of the com
"Governor Frear will undoubtedly state, if asked, that he has no
sympathy with the malicious campaign that has been made against
Mr. Pinkham. He cannot escape the fact, however, that his action
has eiven moral support to that campaign. The issue has been so
clear-cut that it could not be otherwise, and he has not raised his
voice to protest or offered an objection to such methods.
"That is the practical result, and it will not be changed though
it is argued and hammered on with as much excitement, as Ion
and as bitterly as the preliminary Pinkham furore.
"There is no doubt that Dr. Cofer will have the hearty support
of the business men of the Territory, and Cofer is, after all, the
man who has the principal cause for personal worry, since he
occupies a dual position and is striking out on a new program for
dealing with old problems that have been a constant source of fric
"The Bulletin wishes Dr. Cofer well. May he duplicate in the
Territorial service the magnificent results gained in this Federal
Colored Under the heading of "Another Colored Egg" the
Eggs. Evening Bulletin of Honolulu takes us to task for
publishing a wireless message to the effect that the medical society
had "virtually" endorsed Pinkham.
The wireless message was published by us exacaly as it was
given us and as we believe was sent from Honolulu.
The News is not in the coloring line and wo a Id not color any at
tacks on ex-president Pinkham even if wew re.
The News is as strong a supporter of the administration of Mr
rinkham as the Bulletin ever was and would suggest that that
paper get at least a part of its Maui messages correct before it
enters the field as a critic.
On the 13th instant the Bulletin published the following:
(Special to The Bulletin)
Wailuku, Maui, April 10. The members of the Knights cif l'ythias,
Aloha Lodge No. 3, are hard at work these evenings rehearsing for their
minstrel show to come off on Saturday evening, April 25th. Dr. J. If.
Raymond is understood to be the interlocutor, while Messrs. C. Crowell,
Dr. W. U. Maples and two others will be eiid-meu. It is claimed that
this coming show will eclipse anything heretofore done by local men in
this direction. Reserved seats are already in demaud.
As a matter of fact the first intimation that any member of Aloha
Lodge had that either C Crowell or W. It. Maples had been nieu
tioned in connection with the minstrel show to bo given by the
Kpights was when the information was read in the Bulletin.

Electro Coal Oil
. Here to Stay.
Until quite recently one company
manufactured the majority if not all of
the illuminating oil used in this territory
With the advent of the Inion Oil Co. in
the field with crude oil used for fuel pur
poses came a change. Their refineries at
Oleum and Bakersfield, California which
are in the center of the oil producing
districts of that state, are up to date with
all modern appliances. Their new Elec
tro oil stands the high test required by
our local government for illuminating oil
and is meeting with great favor.
Mr. II. B. Weller (.Oily Sam) is the
representative of the manufacturers and
is looking out to see that the consumers
of this oil are well satisfied. Complaints
are promptly investigated and adjusted
The result of this buying that all of the
leading stores here are handling the oil
and as they only sell what their custom
ers demand it shows the growing popu
larity of this commodity.
