(loes Orerlnnd to Lnupiilioehoo And
Is Klnlcd With Country.
Messrs. II. Dimotid mid II. Wilson of
San Frnucisco, who were here last week
to look over the country to be belted by
the Hilo-Kohala Railroad drove from
Hilo to Laupahochoc last Friday morning
and caught the Kinau at that place.
Like every one else who sees the cane
field empire of Windward Hawaii, they
were delighted with what they saw. The
fertility of the country already under
cultivation struck them forcibly, but no
stronger than the immense possibilities
of the virgin lauds nbovc the cane belt
yet to be brought under the axe and
"The greatest reason why there is no
road now in operation through this rich
stretch of plantations is now apparent to
me," said Mr. Dimotid. "Whenever n
prnclicnl railroad man, who has never
seen this country with his own eyes, is
told of the number ol tons of freight
avnllnblc; when he is told of the possible
passenger traffic; when he is told how
much it will probably cost to construct
the road: when he is told of the, upper
levels of laud yet untitled, he will im
mediately become suspicious mid not be
lieve your story. He will argue to him
self that 110 such a field for a railroad as
this would lie untakcii for fifteen or
twenty years. He would say to the pro
moter you are giving me a pipe dream.
Either the country is not as you describe
it, or there isn railroad already there."
.Meeting of Hilo Agricultural Society
Encouraging ljeadway has been made
in upbuilding the banana industry in Ha-
nli, since the iuaguration of n regular
steamer by the Matsou Navigation Com
pauy. The number of bunches shipped
by John Lycurgus by the Enterprise last
Wednesday was 567. This lacks a few of
being tne 10,000 per mouth wlilcli Cap
tain Matsou wanted before making n
freight rate of 40 cents or less per bunch.
However the good work nlready done is
apparent in the rapid increase tit the arch
to be devoted to banana culture. The
Hilo Agricultural Society, mainly through
the persistence of Chas. Fumeaux has
been instrumental in extending the ba
A meeting was held at the office of Mr.
Fumeaux last Friday to discuss the trans
portation question. Captain Mntson, Mr.
Gcrhardt, a recent purchaser of laud ill
Olaa, R. T. Guard and others were pre
sent. The policy of the Matsou line, was
stated by Captain Miller to be that of re
ducing freight rates as rapidly as the in
crease on banana shipments will warrant.
Captain Miller made an extended talk
upon his expedience in freighting bananas
from West Indies to New York.
Cotillion Club Meeting.
The Hilo Cotillion Club held a business
meeting at the parlors of Mr. mid Mrs.
Madeira in the Peacock Block on last
Saturday evening, when the question of
limiting tne luctuncrsuip was discussed
and steps taken to collect delinquent
dues. A rule was adopted whereby all
members in arrears to the extent of five
dollars mid over, nre hereafter to be drop
ped after notice mid mi allowance of
thirty days grace. It was decided that
the next dance, to be given April first,
should be a "holoku party," when all in
attendance are expected to wear the fa
milar gown otherwise known as the
"Mother Hubbard." The gentlemen as
v. ell ns the ladies will have nn opportunity
to shine in this classic costume.
Captain Miller and Family Return.
Mrs. Captain Miller and daughter re
turned on Wednesday by the S. S. Enter
prise to Sail Francisco, mid during their
stay in Hilo they made and take with
them pleasant memories of their visit.
Genial Captain Miller of this hospitable
and comfortable vessel has won n warm
place in the hearts of the residents of
Hilo, anil travelers to mul Irom this port
via his steamer His appearance in jiort
is always n-signal for a series of dinners
nnd entertainments, of which he is the
central figure. Both he mid his family
have the assurance of a hearty and cor
dial welcome whenever they may return
to our midst.
Kuu FitvorN Hilo As County Sent.
Advices received from Kan indicate the
friendly feeling of that district toward
Hilo. At the recent public meetings held
nt Naalehu nnd elsewhere in the district,
to consider matters of legislation and the
proposed county bill, the citizens placed
themselves on record in favor of one
county with Hilo as the county seat. It
was the belief that more consideration
would be given to their wants nud needs j
for improvements from Hilo under such
an arrangement than any other proposed
divisou. As to geographical proximity
of the county seats named, they preferred j
Hilo to Waimea. No formal "uctlou was
I taken, however, in regard to the matter.
Kxecitttvu Council Friendly.
Philip I'cck, who is in Honolulu in the
interest of the Hilo-Kohala Railroad was
before the Executive Council at Honolulu
Monday, in the interest of the application
for an extension of the time limit for the
completion of the road. Mr Peck was
not only successful in securing the desired
extension ol two years time, but received
assurances from all the department
heads and the Governor of tjieir readiness
to lend all the help in their power to the
furtherance of the enterprise. Secretary
Carter uud Superintendent of Public
Works, II. K. Cooper were especially
out spoken in their promises to help the

Considerable progress is being made in
the excavation nt Kallmann for the
storage reservoir, which is lo furnish 11
headway for the city's water supply. It
is expected the work will be completed
within three months, when the fears of
exhausting the supply of water in case of
a large fin, will be reduced to n minimum.
Among the other locnl improvements
being carried on under the direction of
the Superintendent of Public works in
the vicinity of Hilo, is Pukihai bridge,
which is practically finished and will be
soon opened up fur travel. The cuts and
filling for the new approaches nre nearly
completed, and after macadamizing the
roadway and sodding the banks, this
structure will stand ns n creditable piece
of engineering work by the contractors
and the government olliclals having the
construction in charge.
One of the much needed improvements
in Hilo, which has been waiting on the
tardy action of the Government, is the
extension of Bridge street. The opening
upof this street, connecting Volcano
street with Waianiicmic, will afford the
only direct thoroughfare ncross the city,
At present Front street is used almost
exclusively for heavy draying, which has
resulted in making that highway so
badly cut up that it is no longer a com
fort to travel over it. Bridge street ex
tended nnd properly graded would re
lieve Front street of n large ntuount of
this heavy traffic, nnd would dispense
with the serpentine windings which has
characterized many of the streets of Hilo.
Straight mid direct avenues through n
city, with no hall-lcugth streets or blind
alleys, are the only streets desirable in 11
city with a growing population. A con
siderable portion of the right of wny for
Bridge street has already been secured,
and it only requires executive action to
effect this much delayed improvement.
Members of the Hilo Road Board when
approached plead lack of appropriations
to carry forward the work, although the
necessary surveys have been in the pos
session of the Government for some time.
It is stated that the extension of Bridge
street will necessitate the' grading of
King, which at present preserves the
same tolling and undulating surface
which prevailed when Hilo was first
settled. The continuation of such an ex
ample of rural streets, ns King street,
within the very business center, does not
reflect much credit on the progressive
ness of our city.

A very delightful danciiig party was
given on last Friday evening by Mr. and
