SENATE BILL 155.
The immortal truth always comes
out on top. Senate Hill 155, while
possibly introduced by parties who
don't care a rap for the Hilo-Kohala
railroad, was not the work of Hilo
enemies or alleged enemies of that
project. " It was conceived by the
Kona-Kau promoters who have
their own axe to grind and who
incidentally arc not in an amiable
frame of mind toward the Hilo-Kohala
road, because their construc
tion proposal was not accepted. He
that as,it may, the source of the
bill is unimportant. It has many
points of merit and when finally
amended as it probably will be,
will be objectionable to nobody but
the Hilo Herald, which has devel
oped a very grave malady of the
brain upon the subject. The Onhu
and Hilo Railroad representatives,
and the promoters of the Hilo-Kohala
road have made effective rep
resentations resulting in the adop
tion of amendments which class the
bill among the most sensible pro
posed at this legislature.
There are two other amendments
that should be engrafted in the bill
befoie it becomes a law. A pro
vision should be made for the deter
mination of damages before a judge
at chambers. This would obviate
any delay in waiting for term time
to roll around and would result in
substantial justice to both parties.
Another amendment should be
made permitting a Railroad Com
pany to enter upon land and
begin the work of construction
upon filing a petition in Court, to
gether with such bonds as the
Court might specify. This would
not alter the principle of the bill
and might result in great practical
benefit to some parties, while injur
ing none. There is no reason why
a railroad company should not pro
ceed with construction work under
bonds during the pendency of a suit
in Circuit Court as well as under
tmj same conditions during pen
dency of an appeal. The suit is
not to determine the right of entry.
It is to determine the amount of
compensation, and bonds could be
fixed at the beginning of the case
as well as after the jury's verdict.
A BAD BILL.
The Senate Judiciary committee
in recommending the passage of a
bill to permit the police to enter
buildings without a searchwarrant
made a bad mistake. This is a
vital departure from English and
American methods and paves the
way for police tyranny that in Hilo
at least would be intolerable to an
American or an Englishman who
has not forgotten his country. It
is an open question, if such a law
is passed, whether the police would
not become a greater curse to so
ciety than gaming.
Without this law the police of
Hilo have a habit of breaking into
houses without search warrants.
If they had the sanction of a law
such as is set forth in Senate Bill
125, there are few homes in Hilo
that would be safe to go to sleep in.
Hilo needs protection from her
police more than she needs protec
tion from gamblers'. If the pro
posed law passes, Hawaii ceases to
be a country where "every man's
house is his castle," and everybody
from the leading merchant to the
latest arrived yard boy, may expect
to have his doors battered down at'
midnight and a police captain's
dark lantern thrust through his
Tin? County bill as agreed upon
in conference and passed by both
branches of the Legislature, em
bodies practically all of the recom
mendations with the exception of
County control of schools. Magis-
tratesareto be appointed by the
County Supervisors. The income
tax exemption is fixed at i8oo;i
the Road Boards are abolished. .
HILO HIGH SCHOOL.
The Senate Committee on educa
tion docs not believe that Hilo and
Hawaii needs a High School. The
Committee doubts whether there
are children enough on this island
to warrant the establishment of such
an institution. The Department of
Education would have been serving
the country better, had it spent less
time in circulating petitions for the
retention of the present school sys
tem, and devoted more to enlight
ening legislators to the needs ac
tual crying needs. A High School
in Hilo would be a magnet of at
traction to young boys and girls on
this island, who now cannot com
plete their education without going
to Honolulu or private institutions.
The cost of such a course dissuades
many from continuing their studies.
As the schools of this island are
now organized, pupils drop out of
work just at the time when they
arc becoming most deeply inter-
ested. They leave the schools, at
the very time in their lives when
discipline and application count for
most. The fortunate find them
selves in the Kamehamcha school.
The unfortunate poor are set adrift.
The United States of America
would be astonished if it knew
Hilo, Hawaii's second city, docs
not know what a High School is.
A city of 8,000 souls, with a thous
and children of the school age,
without a High School 1
Tin; Arizonan, crew and officers
and ship, while in Hilo bay, spent
in the city the sum of $11.25,
$7.50 of which was spent for wire
less messages. This is in deep
contrast to the olden days when
Hilo sugar was carried by sailing
craft. The sailors were in port a
long time. The crews would come
ashore and their coin was exchanged
for the good things of Hilo with a
liberal hand. The majestic hulks
of the ponderous American-Hawaiian
steamers appeal to the im
agination as they skulk into port
and skulk out again with 10,000
tons of sugar stowed away. But
they don't make times any livelier.
Tiikkk is a movement on foot to
organize a Jockey Club to take over
Hoolulu Park and manage it on the
Fouth of July. The Directors of
the Stables Company have decided
to have no racing at the Park on
the Fourth, but are willing to turn
it over to any reliable parties. The
proposed Jockey Club may lease the
premises for a year, or for the
Fourth of July occasion alone. This
is to be determined by the members.
Siikkipf Andkkws has imported
a pair of blood hounds. They
arrived by the Amy Turner and
are said to be very fine specimens
of the man hunting variety. After
this, when steel manacles and a
double guard fail to do the work,
we will all turn out for an old
fashioned southern man hunt of
the ante helium style.
Sknatk Bill No. 155, with the
bond proposition knocked out, does
not appear to be a hydra headed
monster after all. Under it, rail
roads will continue to be built and
in spite of Brother Stacker's fit,
smoke will continue to issue from
the chimneys of Wainaku.
Tin? Fourth of July is Hilo's
day. It is not too early to begin
preparations for a big program.
The success of a fireworks display
depends on an early order. Elab
orate pieces and special advertising
features are not carried in stock and
must be ordered early.
Tin? observance of Decoration
Day should not be forgotten in
Hilo. The best school of patriot
ism is the solemn ceremony of
remembrance in honor of departed
veterans of every war.
A sham battle in the centre field
at Hoolulu Park would be a first
class Fourth of July attraction.
The proper committee at the proper
time should confer with the officers

'INCREASE OF WAGES.
The remarkable aggregate, in
crease in wages to be paid this year
in the United States, as a result Of
wisdom in labor union leadership,
is prophetic of continued prosperity.
Twenty millions extra pay to coal
miners. Five millions extra pay to
the builders -in Chicago. What do
these facts signify? They do not
signify that the laboring man has
ever been benefitted by the burst
ing of anarchist bombs or the ap
plication of the torch to property
that had been reared by the toil 'bn

beating a "scab" to death or boy
cotting a 11011 union man arc proved
virtues which lead to wealth or
sainthood. They prove, merely
that the millions who toil, when
guided by good brains cannot be
deprived of their just heritance.
Their just hcritance is not ,alonc
wages. L,aoor as a tactor in the
creation of wealth, is entitled to a
partner's share in the profits of 'an'
enterprise. At the present day in
America, labor receives more nearly
its just share in the distribution of
wealth than it ever has before.
Broadmindcdness ,of labor lcaderfs
and broadmindcdness of employers
in America account for the progress
made. At the bottom of it all- is
the ability of the American work

HILO'S GOOD OPPORTUNITY.
A protest against legislation inim
ical to the progress of Kohala-Hilo
railway construction is timely and
justified. A great deal has beeit
said of what the promoters of this
road have not done. It must be
admitted that they do not appear to'

reason or another have had to delay
the actual construction which
guarantees a railroad reality. Jeal
ousies seem to have been stirred up
in some sections and often times the
echoes from various influences
directly or indirectly connected with
Hilo and its surrounding territory
have carried the impression that com
affairs have overshadowed the spjieiji
did benefits necessarily accruing' to
all business interests of the big
The mistakes of the past should
be immaterial. The result is what
Hilo is looking for and as there is
every indication that the road will
emerge from its paper shell every
moral and financial assistance in
Hilo and throughout the Territory
should be extended to enable the
fulfillment of good intentions. If
cnthusiasticsupport cannot be given,
there certainly should be no antago
nistic action which will jeopardize
the road. With railway commun
ication along the Hamnkua coast,
Hilo will be the busy commercial
center which its harbor facilities
and superior location justifies. The
power of a railroad as a developer
of business, prosperous and more
comfortable homes, is proverbial.
To block the railroad is to check
the prosperity of Hilo and set ,back
the hands of progress throughoul
the whole district which the roa'rJ
will traverse. Hawaii has all to
gain and nothing to lose from this
project and particularly in Hilo and
Hamakua should broad-minded
public spirit rally to the support of
Mr. Peck and his associates and
endeavor to protect the road from
any action which migljt . ruin the
prospects of early construction
That the new railroad law
"means endless liquidation," as the
Herald says, should be good. new,s

to break into houses without a

as a Mohammedan in heaven.
