HILO POST OFFICE GAINS.
IIonIiiIu Drops Itcliltid In l'ostnl
Washington, D. C.Sept. 29.
Presidential postoffices in Hawaii,
of which there are five, had a slight
falling off the last fiscal year in the
amount of receipts. The accounts
have just been made up at the Post-
office Department for publication,
of the transactions in all the Presi
dential offices of the country. This
does not include the so-called fourth
class postoffices, the postmasters for
which are named by the fourth
assistant postmaster general, but
those offices where the appoint
ments are made by the President.
The total gross receipts of the
postoffices at Hilo, Honolulu, La
haina, Lihuc and Wailuku were
$75,288.72 for the fiscal year that
closed June 30 last. Out of this
money there was paid $8,600 for
salaries of the postmasters, $2,000
for the postmaster at Hilo, $3,300
for the salary of the postmaster at
Honolulu, $1,200 for the salary of
the postmaster at Labaiua, and
$1,100 and $1000 respectively for
the salaries of the postmasters at
Lihuc and Wailuku. Out of these
gross receipts lor last year there
was also paid a total of $36,993.27
for cletk hire in the same five post-
offices; $1,460.04 for rent, light and
fuel; $819.15 for incidental ex
penses, and $6,408.15 for free deliv
ery, which was expended in Hono
lulu. This made the total expenses
of the Presidential offices in Hawaii
$54,320.61 and the net revenue
The previous fiscal year there
were six Presidential oltices, some
of which were established that fiscal
year, so no reliable comparison can
be instituted. Kohala was a Presi
dential office fot the fiscal year 1901
but ceased to have that rank last
year. Linue and wailuku were
established as Presidential offices
in October, 1901, and for that fiscal
year the records were not complete.
However the totals of that previous
year, as returned to the Postoffice
Department, were gross receipts of
$75,966.85, out of which was paid
$8,300 for salaries, $29,008.64 for
clerk hire; $5:5 for rent, light and
fuel, $5,771.07 for incidental ex
penses, $600 for free delivery in
Honolulu. This made a total ex
pense for these six Presidential
offices of $44,194.71 and a net rev
enue of $31,772, considerably more
than for the last fiscal year, when
it was, as already stated, $20,968.11.
The per cent of expense to gross
receipts last year was seventy-two
per cent; while the previous year it
was only fifty-eight per cent.
The gross receipts of the post
office at Honolulu fell off last year,
when they were $59,867.99 as com
pared with $62,919.18 for the prev
ious year. The clerk hire in the
Honolulu office last year amounted
to $33,660.80 as compared with
$25,978.64. Rent, light and fuel
in the Honolulu postoffice last year
cost the government $1,119.04,
where it was $397.10 for the prev
ious year. Other incidental ex
penses last year were $722.74, where
the previous year it was $4,825.29.
The net revenue of the Honolulu
office last year was $14,657.26 and
the total expenses $45,210.73. The
expenses were seventy-six per cent
of the gross receipts. The previous
fiscal year the expenses of the Ho
nolulu office were fifty-six per cent
of the gross receipts.
The Hilo postoffice showed an
increase for the past fiscal year, for
the gross receipts were $8,559.41,
as compared with $6,963.58 for the
previous fiscal year. The cost of
clerk hire was $2,852.47, an in
crease of $152.47. Rent, light and
fuel cost $81, but the incidental ex
penses amounted to $135.21. The
total expenses last year were
$5,068.68 and the net revenue
S3.40O.7.S. The net revenue of the
1 Ililo office for the preceding year
I was $1 ,137.38. The expenses last
year was $1,137.38. The expenses
I last year were fifty-nine per cent of
the gross receipts and the previous
fiscal year they were eighty-four

IOWA AND THE TA1UPF.
Governor Cummins nt Chicago Tells
What l'lntforin Means.
In nil its length and all its
breadth we meant just what we
said. We believe that to the doc
trine of protection more than to any
other principle of government is
due the commanding position so
brilliantly won and so firmly held
by the United States in the affairs
of the world; that to the policy of
protective duties is due, more than
to any other policy of the Govern
ment, the unequalcd manhood and
womanhood of the people, nt once
the safety and glory of the Repub
lic; that to this fundamental propo
sition of the Republican party is
due, more than to any other eco
nomic truth, the marvelous devel
opment and unparalleled prosperity
which now distinguish the Ameri

That changes would become
necessary or advisable no Republi
can has ever doubted. The plat
form was adopted under circum
stances that made it clear that the
Republicans of Iowa are deeply
convinced that the time has come,
through the progress of our indus
tries and their changing relations
to the commerce of the world, when
modifications of the tariffare imper
atively demanded; and if I do not
misinterpret the signs of the times
this belief is shared by the Repub
licans of forty-four other states.
The whole story is told when I say
that wc have passed from the ab
stract into the concrete. We have
known that the hour would strike.
Why should we be startled when
the ringing tones of the bell of
progress fall upon our ears?
We do not impeach the schedules
as they were written they were
inspired by patriotism and formu
lated with intelligence; but if the
hand of God instead of the hand of
Dingley had penned them, the
mighty transformations of five years
would have unfitted them, or some
of them, for conditions that now

first races are expected to take
place in August. Sir Thomas said:
"I cannot discuss the terms until
the officials of the New York Yacht
Club have bad an opportunity to
deal with them and have signified
their opinions in regard to them."

Chinese Uholcra Cure.
A distinctly Chinese cure for
cholera was practiced at Chinanfti
a few weeks ago, where the disease .
Cholera, as everyone knows, is a ,
hot-weather epidemic. In winter
it ceases. So the Chinese went
through all the religious ceremonies
of New Year's day, thinking
thereby to fool heaven into believ-'
ing it was mid-winter, when it
would stay the pestilence. London
