How about "Tin; Evening
Bui.i" as a title for Honolulu's
new afternoon daily?
Who said that one of the after
noon papers would become a morn
ing paper after Tuly 1st?
The Evening Star, which has
faithfully twinkled o'er Honolulu
for many years, will pass out of
existence on July 1st.
WE are told that the 4th. of July
celebration at the Kukuiolono
park will include public speaking,
base ball, fireworks and so 4th.

present condition of the crossing

Complaints have reached this
office in regard to riding horses on
the sidewalk between the butcher
shop and 'The Garden Island
office. This is mere thoughtless
ness upon the part of those who
do so, and once it is called to their
attention, it is doubtful if they
will repeat the practice.
Beeore settleing the Territorial
Homesteads Laws, it might b e
well to remember that there is a
bill before congress providing for
a reduction of the time of residence
on homestead claims from, five to
three years, further action upon
which depends- the information
regarding incomplete claims i n
this connection. Every land office
in the United States has been or
dered to furnish at once, a state
ment of the number of homesteads
which have not been completed.
L. D. Timmons, one of Hono
lulu's veteran newspaper men, and
for more than a year manager of
the Hawaiian Star, has resigned,
his resignation to take effect July
1st. Tim is one of the most capable
men in the service and his brother
fellow-men deeply regret his leav

The Garden Island received
notice last week Irom the whole
sale paper houses, announcing
another advance of from 10 to .20
per cent in the price of all kinds of
paper used in the commercial world.
And yet the fool newspapers are
charging the same price for their
work that they did ten years ago.
We haven't got sense enough to
get in out of the rain.
An exchange doesn't see how
W. G. Smith can justly defend the
Hawaiians against slanderous re
ports appearing in mainland pa
pers, because of his past attitude
towards them. Five h undred
dollars per month will do wonders
brother. However, if a man is able
to do so much harm in writing
against a cause, let us suppose,
when he is lined up on the other
side of the fence, that he will do as
much for the other fellow. It is
the concensus of opinion that no
better choice could have b e e u
made in the selection of a man for
the place, and time only, will prove
whether or not the move has been
a wise one.
The amalgamation of Honolu
lu's two afternoon papers should
form a combination of s u c h
strength as to enable the produc
tion of one of the best papers
ever yet published in the Territory.
On the reportorial staff of both
papers are writers of experience;
men who know newspaper work
in all its branches and whose com
bined efforts are sure to give tie
readers of the new paper a class of
news equal to that given by the big
daily press, service on the coast.
W. R. Farrington, present editor
of the Bulletin, the manager-to-be-of
the new concern, i s a keen
business man, his prowess as such
being indicated in the great im
provement he has wrought in the
Evening Bulletin since it came
under his control. As a n editor,
Brother Farrington i s recognized
as one of the most fair-minded and
conservative writers in the Terri
tory, being always found on the
side of progressiveues particular
ly in regard to educational affairs.
In taking up his new duties, he is
fortified with years of experience
and the best wishes of The Gar
den Island for success in the con
tinuation of a position for which
there are none better qualified to
W. G. Smith, Editor of the Star,
and who on July 1st. resigns to
enter a new field, has been known
for many years to be one of the
ablest writers i n the Territory
and that he has been induced to
leave the newspaper field, is deep
ly regretted by all who are familiar
with his style of writing. That
there never was a more popular
local writer is evidenced in the
multitude of regrets that are heard
from all sources, over his resign
ation. Many readers of the Star
are such solely on account o f
this brilliant writer, a n d t h e
promise that he may again re
turn to Honolulu after his engage
ment is finished, to apply himself
to newspaper work, is the source
of much happy anticipation among
