The Sugimura household has recently

been untruthful, to hlui.
He therefore wrote her a sweet note
inclosing his little finger which he had
neatly cut off with the meat ax. He told
her that she had been guilty of ten lies;
that he had ten fingers and would cut one
off each day until she promised not to lie
Unfortunately, the husband got drunk

Snys Wright's Troubles Do Not Re
fleet on Hiwnllnns.
Hon, Samuel M. Damon, Minister of
Finance under the monarchy mid the Re
public, was asked this morning by a Hul-
lctin reporter for his views on the situa
tion with reference to the Treasurer from
his standpoint of official experience as
well as large interest in all matters rela
tive to the welfare of the Territory.
''The unpleasant situation that ha9
arisen with reference to Mr. Wright's
conduct in the Treasury," Mr. Damon
preceded to reply, "has called forth a
great deal of feeling on the part of the
community, and much of this feeling has
been directed against Hawaiians holding
Important offices and positions of finan
cial trust under the government.
"Realizing this feeling and front my
previous connection with the Treasury, I
am led to think that the trouble in con
nection with Mr. Wright dates farther
back than this particular case, and that
much of this difficulty might have been
avoided by a closer inspection by the
authorities and especially by the Auditor.
"I am quite aware that the Governor
has stated that Mr. Austin Is my appoin
tee. I am quite aware nud hold myself
in readiness to bear my share of this re
sponsibility, for he was appointed upon
my recommendation. Hut it is hardly
fair to go so far back as the original ap
pointment of Mr. Austin.
"What is needed in public as well ns
in private business is the constant and
unremitting nttention to details of al)
financial institutions. It is neither fair
to the executive nor just to the subordi
nate to permit unrestricted conduct of
money affairs without personal inquiry.
''Had Mr. Austin thoroughly, or had
the executive and the auditing depart
ment thoroughly investigated, as was
their duty under the Act, the entire
working of the Treasury, this lamentable
condition would have never arisen.
"To lay the blame on Mr. Wright is
more tliau unjust and unfair. That one
Hawaiian or ten Hawaiians have gone
wrong, it is an improper inference to
draw that the race as a whole arc inca
pable of being trusted. I have known
Hawaiians and have been associated with
them all my life, and among them I have
found many men and wouicui of irrc
proachablc honor and character, and
since this occcurrencc in the Treasury I
have personal knowledge that among
Hawaiians it has caused a feeling of griet
and sadness that one of their number
should have forfeited the good name of
their race by abusing his public trust.
The llniiiuin Trade.
Pctei Lee is still enthusiastic over the
outlook for bananas. He believes a
fltirishing businescan be done in the line
from this port nud that a demand will
alwajs exist for Hilo bananas thnt
will build up a thriving growing business
011 this island.
Mr. Lee's first consignment was by the
last Enterprise. From his experience in
receiving bananas at the wharf, he finds
1 it impracticable to take them by weight.
Ilananas come packed and there is uei
1 ther time nor facilities for weighing
I them. He therefore will measure the
bunches in the future instead of weighing
1 them. He wants all bunches to come up
1 to the 9-hand measurement and will pay
a price equivalent to 1 U cents a pound,
I Mr. Lee is convinced that it will not
I pay to ship bunches smaller than 9 hands.
1'iiper .Mill Prospects.
S. M. Mayer, who has been in the city
two weeks investigating the possibilities

left this morning by the Claudiuc for
1 Honolulu. He believes there will be a
paper mill at Hilo within one year. Mr.
! Mayer did not secure the promise of
enough bngnssc to warrant the erection of
n mill, but he did not go away without
substantial encouragement. He found
over here another very important supply
of fibre winch he thinks will justify his
company in proceeding at once to the
1 erection of n mill. Tills will be finally
settled when he reaches Seattle. One
thing positively settled by Mr. Mayer, is
I that lie will recommend Hilo over nuy
I other plnce in the Islnuds for the location
of a mill.
