Carnival this year that would In

nreworks? Yes, the thing is nam
ed for what it looks like, not what
it really is. Jets of steam, supplied
bv hidden boilers, gush in fantas
tic shapes from whirling frames of
iron pipe and writhing lengths of
rubbet hose, while dazzling beams
of colored radiance from a battery
of searchlights play on the fleecy
clouds. The result is indescribably
beautiful and is something wholly
new to the Islands.
In conjunction with this demon
stration of the steam fireworks ap
paratus will be given a repetition
of Kdison Night at the Fair, uni

Automobile races are another
novelty. Real racing cars, driven
by competent professional drivers,
never have turned a wheel on an
Island track. This year four of
the fastest cars in the United
States will be here for the races

days of eight and twelve cylinder
pleasure cars it is interesting to
know that the racing cars are ex

high speed work and they ' pick

Washington, D. C Jan. 20.
The House of Representatives yes
terday passed three of the bills
which Charles Forbes, Commis
sioner of Public Works of Hawaii,
came here to have enacted. These
are H. R. 65, to ratify the law
passed by the Legislature of Ha

gas, electric light and power, tele

I n explaining the legislation,
Representative Houston said:
Mr. Speaker, this is for the pur
pose of ratifying an act for the
Territory of Hawaii. In 1913, the
Legislature ojf Hawaii passed a
law creating a public-utilities com
mission with the intention of plac
ing under the supervision and con
trol of lhat public-utilities com
mission all of the public-service
corporations in Hawaii. Now, it
is a fact that a number ot public-
service companies or corporations
had franchises and rights that
were granted by Congress. It was
not in the power of this Legisla
ture of Hawaii to put them under
this public utility commission. The
object of this act and its approval
by Congress is for the purpose of
putting all public-service corpora
tions under the control and juris
diction of this act. That is the
general purpose of the bill, and
the reason for it is apparent with
out argument. It is an effort to
put them on the same footing and
to giye this public-utility commis
sion the same power over all these
public-service corporations that it
has over those it had the jurisdic
tion to embrace within it by its
The House also passed the bill,
H. R. 6241, to ratify the territori
al act amending the franchise
granted to H. P. Baldwin and oth
ers, and now held under assign
ment to the Island Electric Co.
Limited, by extending it to include
the Makawao district on the island
of Maui, and extending the control
of the public utilities commission
to the franchise and its present
The House also passed H. R,

There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is alt vegetable.
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc., merely by straining out the food particles
after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness'and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richnessat smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
