Virtue Its Own According to the llilo newspaper? Hawaii County is
Reward. financially in a bn1 hole, but whether the hole is
real or imaginary we haven't the time to work out the problem to-a
mathematically correct solution. We take it for granted the newspapers
art stating the case correctly.
Over here in Maui our County father would probably have fallen into
the same hole had they not the forethought to stematize exiendituri s
and adopt a hard and fast rule for the regulation thereof. When, in
making their semi-annual appropriation bill a lucky district supervisor
lands a big fat appropriation for his district,, his first and very natural
desire is to create a good impression on the home-staying and grumbling
votwre of his district by giving everybody who wants to a job at road
work or bridge building. To keep the county out of the trouble when
this feeling manifests itself the board requires each district overseer to
hand in an estimate of the monthly requirement of the district. Should
the estimate happen to exceed the average monthly pro rata the supervisor
and district overseer have to give good reasons for it or get sat on for their
pains, and no supervisor or district overseer ever wants to be sat on. It
isn't in human nature to submit to the irrJignitv even for the sake of
pleasing the dear voters. Both the super isor, and the district overseer
may fume and fret when there is a big b ance to the good remaining on
he Appropriation Bill, but neither of thei.i ever cares to tempt Provi
dence by reaching for it for the sake of blowing it in on district improve
ments just because the balance is there. Balances ranging from a hun
dred to near $5000 have been coolly allowed to lapse and written off the
books by the County Auditor just because the regulation is then- and is
- We won't advice Hawaii County trying it as it may not work over
where there is a live volcano nearby, for Maui's meat may be Hawaii'
The sayiug passes as a current American proverb, that a public debt
is a public blessing, and perhaps after the County of Hawaii shall have
gone deep enough into debt, since the County is heading in that direc
tion, the truism expressed in the saying will be realized.
Votes for The vote for women question has heretofore remained ever
Women, since Susan B. Anthony's time, a rich mine to draw from
to fill up the joke columns of the newspapers, but, since the "Mother of
Parliaments" stamped its approval on the question by decisive vote of
299 to 190, the suffrage for women question has become a real live issue.
We advicely consider the vote a decisive one, for it means that within
the span of a generation the British Suffragettes will have the vote as
surely as the sun rises in the Eaat. In which event her American sister
will never rest till she too can aspire to the highest political office in the
We think a woman can exercise the ivoting privilege as intelligently as
any. man, and the man is yet to be born who can satisfactory maintain
the claim that the voting privilege exclusively belongs to the male branch
of the human family by "divine right." But this is a queer world, and
the right to vote is a privilege which some qHeer minded menfolks think
exclusively the perquisite of the male branch of the human family only.
Federal Harbor Major Winslow's estimate of the amount of. work re
1 Improvements, quired to complete the Hilo Breakwater shows how
generous the Government at Washington can le when they think the
improvements are imperative,. Once in that mood the thought of limit
ing expenditures is nevermore entertained. This is a billion dollar nation
and the millions required for the Hilo Breakwater or any other improve
ment determined upon is a mere bagatelle. In time the inipiovement
will be completed and the leauty of it the lucky community gets both the
money and the improvement, and the breakwater industry ought to keep
the rainy city contented, business prosperous, residents happy, and give
the city a healthy growth so that things will lxom right along ever
after, , .
From the estimates made by Col. Rosser and his board of engineers,
peedy work and completion of the proposed Kahului Harlior improve
ments are expected, although nobody will complain if the Government
will generously spend on it half as much as the Rainy City's Breakwater
Kahului Another piece of good news is the report that Col
Improvements. Rosser and the board of engineers have estimated
he expense of improving the Kahului harbor at 375,000. It is not
uch a great amount as to preclude the possibility of getting an appro
priation at the December session of the present congress.
Delegate Kuhio has been so successful in getting appropriations for
Hilo and Honolulu, that not th least doubt is entettamed of his getting
tke appropriation for Kahului also. We are a growing community, even
if we do not proclaim .the fact continually from our house tops, naturally
in the course of thines Kahului harbor must be dredged and widened to
provide room for safely mooring the increasing number of big ships that
call to handle the fast growing commerce of the second port of the Territory.
The Electric Apparently the people who obtained the Wailuku
Light Franchise, electric franchise are asleep, and do not intend to
give this town any electric lights at all. The news that the County lioard
ef Supervisors is looking into the matter, and, if found feasible, will se
riously consider a plan for giving the shiretown an electric plant for
lightning the streets and public buildings is good news.
Every man should support the Board of Supervisors on this propsition
and let them have the assurance that the ieople regardless of political
affiliations are with them in this matter. We want the lights, now let
us have them.
WASHINGTON. July 20. The report of the Russian agent sent

Panic And Almost
A Dance at H. D. Penhallow's.
HANA, July 21. Yesterday
evening Ilev. E. B. Turner accom
panied by Rev. L. B. Kaumehciwa,
who acted as interpreter, were to
give a stereopticon lecture in uie
Wananalua church here on the
prohibition issue. After exhibiting
pictures thrown from the stereop
ticon outfit on screens to illustrate
their subject, Mr. Turner proceed
ed to remove the oil tank, which
in some way had become heated,
out of the building. At the door
way the tank fell from his hands
auil some of the contents were
spilled on the floor. As its peculiar
odor permeated the air, the crowd,
which was one of the largest ever
ees-embled in the Wananalua
church, got it into their heads that
an explosion of the inflamable
stuff had taken place, and the
building was 'in imminent danger
of being pwrpt by quick Hying
tongues of fire; and that they were
about to be overtaken by a sudden
catastiophe, such as had befallen
many a big theater where the
crowded humans were overwhelmed
in the twinkling of an eye, asphyx
ated and partly cremated almost
before life had become ex: inct.
In a moment dread panic big
wilh terrifying dangers was abroad!
Barred, from the doorway, men and
women hurrndly escaped from the
building through the windows.
Children abandoned by frightened
patents filled the building with
their shrill cries of childish terror
until cooler heads directed them
out into the open air.
After the scare had subsided
Ilev. Mr. Turner and his assistants
sought to reassure the people and
to induce them to return and listen
to the best part of their lectures.
But they were too deeply stirred
over what had taken place, and
had been too near the verge of
uiad desperation to again face the
awful but groundless risk that had
seemed but a minute before to lurk
within the grey walls of the roomy
old church, and none felt a wish
to return to their seuts.
