Committee on Legislative Needs
i of Hilo and Hawaii:
1 Sir: Your committee on the Ililo
Hand beg to report as follows;
This committee met on the 10th
'day of February, 1903, and arrived
'at the following conclusions and
I recommendations in re the Ililo
I As all are aware, we find in ex
istence in our midst a brass baud
composed of Prof. Joaquin Carval
' ho, leader, and twenty-four mem
' bers. This baud, known as the
DRUG COMPANY. Hilo Band, hns been in existence
for a number of years in this city,
but as a regularly organized institu
tion only about two years.
At .the present time the band con
sists of 5 cornets, 2 baritones, 3
clarionets, 5 tenors, 4 altos, 2 basses,
1 bass and 1 snare drum.
The instruments are in some cases
owue I by individual musicians, but
the majority are public property,
having been generously contributed
by public subscription and are of a
! number of makes.
At the present time the leader is
being paid a small salary through
public subscription in compensation
for his services.
During the last year the band has
given an average of four public
concerts per mouth, besides furnish
ing music for military drills of Corn-
no hesitation in believing that in a
short while the Hilo Baud could be
brought up to the standard of the
Govcrumeut-fcd one in Honolulu,
and the Honolulu Band could then 1
visit the leeward side of this Island j
and give the people there the benefit I
of their pro rata interest in music
and thus omit the Hilo visit.

The members of the baud are all
respectable citizens of this citj , and
most of them have volunteered for
a number of years to give this city
and district a band and music,
which, under the circumstances,
has earned the praise of lovers of
music residing here and elsewhere.
We therefore recommend that the
Legislature at its incoming session
appropriate the sum of $14,000 for
two years for the assistance of the

its present leader, said sum to be
used in the following manner:
