Hitherto Overlooked. I
Dr. C. II. Cooper, President of the
Hoard of Health, was a busy mail yester
day, looking over Ililo from a sanitary
standpoint, and when seen by 11 Thiiiunk
reenter last evening spoke frankly of
Hilo's needs and stated emphatically
what bis recommendations would be.
"IUIn needs many things and deserves
attention from the powers at Honolulu,"
said Dr. Cooper. "I find you without a
morgue, without disinfecting facilities,
without an ambulance. You should have
provision for all of these things at once,
mid I shall urgently recommend the
same. Just now, if occasion should arise
for care I ill work by your health officers
they would be seriously handicapped by
the want of proper facilities for guarding
the public health. Another thing, the
cilircus of Ililo should press upon our
delegate lo Congress aud Win. Haywood,
the necessity for a United States quaran
tine station at Hilo. Iu a Honolulu
warehouse we have over $10,000 worth of
apparatus Intended for use at Hilo ns
soon as a station is established. This
cannot be utilized as things now exist
aud it is for the people of Hilo to act.
"Regarding a Pure I'ood Commissioner
for Ililo, I nm in favor of creating the
office and filling it with a Hilo man. The
people of Hilo need the safeguard of a
l'ooil inspector and bacteriologist as well
as those of Honolulu.
"While out of my line, I cannot help
noticing jour need of more side-walks
and better stieets. Hilo is no longer a vil

its first annual election of officers last
Monday night. There were sixty mem

Skilled l.nborers Meel In Conten
tion to Discuss thu Problem.
Twenty-four different lines of skilled
labor were represented at the mass meet
ing last Saturday night at Flremans' Hall,
which convened for the purpose of solv
ing the problem ot the encroachment of
the Japanese. Iu the hall there were at
least one hundred and fifty, gathered to
hear what the skilled artisans had to say
concerning the peculear problems that
confront them in Hawaii. The nreethtg
was successful from the standpoint or in
terest shown and the men went about the
business in hand iu the most approved
style. Mr. II. Kendal was made chair
man of the meeting.
Speeches were made by representatives
of the trade. All were agreed that the
competition of the Japanese is a force
that threatens to ostracise the white
skilled laborer, especially In the building
and mechanics trade. A solution of the
problem is a hard nut to crack. The
drift of the proceedings was in the direc
tion ot a nope lor legislative action, it
was suggested by some that only licensed
tradesmen should be permitted to do
work iu the Territory and that licenses
be issued by the Territory only to Ameri

in similar strain,

Wedding Ceremony tit tho Volcano
House Wednesday Kvcnlnir.
A pretty wedding ceremony occurred
at the Volcano House Monday evening
uniting in wedlock Mr. A. K. Harford of
Pahala and Miss Mary J. Tewsley of Ho
noapu. The words were spoken by the
Rev. Mr. Hill iu the presence of a few
Intimate friends of the contracting parties.
After the ceremony the company was
served with an elegant wedding dinner,
the best that Mr. Hidgood of the Volcano
House could supply. The hotel parlors
were artistically decorated for the event.
Mr. Harford is chief engineer for the Pa
hala plantation and his bride was one of
the popular teachers of the leeward side
of the Island. Both have many friends
iu Hilo who extend congratulations.
They will reside at Pahala.
The Treasury of Hawaii has been drain
ed of future receipts by estimates for im
provements in Honolulu. It would there
fore be fruitless for Hilo to expect the
government to appropriate
$100,000 to 1
take over the Hilo Dock. In view of
this state of affairs the legislature should
give the Hilo Dock Company control of
the, dock fifteen or twenty years to enable
it to float bonds, which no capitalist will
touch with a time limit of five years.
If the tourist boomers of Honolulu will
prevail upon the Spreckel's people to
give a literal lease on the Hilo Hotel for
a reasonable term of years, Hilo will open
the hotel in short order. This week,
twenty-two tourists were iu the city.
Next week twenty-five more are coming.
There is a chance now to open the hotel
if all interested will meet the situation
Dr C. H. Cooper docs not allow an Iilk
anniversary to interfere with his official
duties. He has sized up Hilo's needs and
will be a strenuous advocate of changes
that are necessary.
