OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES !

When we have our fighting ships

to mention. The Service.
The progrpss madp on the Hilo

The Passenger Situation.
We wonder if the various conflicting
interests and opinions regarding the
contention of transpacific passenger
traffic could not be brought together
on a plan for suspension of the coast
wise regulations regarding passengers
automatically in specific cases where
it can be shown to be necessary for
the traveling public. In other words,
instead of a blanket suspension, al
lowing foreign companies full competi
tion with the American companies, let
there be a provisional suspension, al
lowing any passenger who is able to
show that he has made application for
a ticket on an American vessel and
been unable to obtain the same, to
travel on a foreign steamer without
paying the fine imposed by the coast
There can be no doubt that during
the past few months there has been
serious congestion and that persons
desiring to buy tickets for Honolulu
from San Francisco have been left
behind. All parties to the controversy
will admit that this is an undesirable
and jmjust state of affairs. It is gen
erally conceded also that there is in
justice to American shipping in sub
jecting the Matson and Oceanic com
panies to the free competition of ag
grpssivp .Tapanpse competitors. Ha
waii, asking for protection for sugar,
is havdly in a position to ask that pro
tection be withdrawn from American
shipping. Especially does it seem un-

Murdered Picture Bride With Stone.

confessed to murdering his wife by
crushing her skull with a stone. He
claims he brought the woman from
Japan and that she proved unfaithful
Can't Carry Bikes Across Street.
Hilo's new automobile law is work
ing with a vengeance. A number of
bicycle riders were fined $5 last week
for carrying their wheels across the
street instead of proceeding to a cor
ner to turn. In all eleven autoists and
bicycle riders have been fined.
Found Snow on Hawaii Mountains.
F. E. Thompson, J. A. Balch, and
Frank Howes, of Honolulu, returned

, To Reorganize Hilo Railroad.
Committees which have had the
matter in hand, have perfected a plan
for reorganising the Hilo Railroad. It
will include a receivership, sale and
reissue of bonds. It is claimed that
if the agreement suggested is taken
up, bondholders will be protected, and
that the future of the property will be
Korean Tries Suicide.
Kim Chong Hak, former president of
the Korean National Association, will
recover from an attempt at suicide
Wednesday of last week. He left a
note for the police in which he said
that he had been arrested on a charge
of emhczzling $1500 of the funds of
the association, and that he wished to
commit suicide then, but waited until
his name had been cleared. The
grand jury failed to indict.
That some of the pineapple packing
companies of Honolulu are apparently
trying to demoralize the fresh fruit
business on the Coast, is the claim of
A. T. Longley, superintendent of the
Territorial Marketing Division. Mr.
Longley declares that at least one big
company has been shipping a large
amount of fresh fruit to San Francis
co recently, and dumping it on the
market at whatever figure it will bring
at auction. The result is that the Mar
keting Division, which has been sell
ing largely on a cash basis, -f o b. Ho
nolulu, finds itself in serious difficulty.
The shipments of the Marketing Divi
sion are for the most part fruit pro
duced by small growers, who have
been unable to dispose of their fruit
to the canneries.
Will Revive Boxing at Army Pott.
According to General Wisser, the
ban against boxing is to be raised at
Schofield Barracks. The matter has
. . , T
fair to ask such withdrawal just when
the Japanese companies, encouraged
by the withdrawal of the Pacific Mail
company, are about to increase their
fleets with larger and belter steam
ers, which they can run at a cheaper
rate than the cost to American com
panies. The American companies are dis
posed to argue that the heavy over
crowding of the past months Is an un
usual condition, and perhaps it is.
That does not alter the fact that it is
a hardship and injustice to residents
of Hawaii to leave them stranded far
from home because there is not
enough steamers to carry them. The
occasional suspension that would re
sult from allowing those who cannot
get American accommodations to
travel on foreign vessels, would prob
ably not seriously cut into the Matson
and Oceanic passenger business. Dur
ing most months of the year it would
have no effect. It would prevent such
conditions as have existed in San
Francisco recently, when people in
San Francisco have been actually un
able to buy tickets for Honolulu and
Hilo. Relief from Buch conditions as
those is an obvious right of the resi
dents of Hawaii, and a necessity to our

No Hot Air Wanted.
We understand that the literary pro
gram committee on Civic Convention
has established it as a rule of the pro
ceedings that no one whose name does
net appear on the printed program will
be called upon to speak. We com
mend this arrangement as a most laud
able innovation. The subject is rather
heavy for extemporaneous treatment,
and, besides, ninety per cent, of hum
anity prefer not to be called upon un
expectedly to speak and the remain
ing ten per cent, are, as a rule "hot
air" artists anyway. We have felt
from the first that the subject, "Civic
Righteousness," should be handled
only by speakers who had made prep
aration for it in advance, and are
pleased to know that that idea Is to
be carried out. Garden Island.
