A HORRIBLE SPECTACLE.
Why should Honolulu wish to be
a separate and independent self
supporting municipality when she
has a death grip on the most mon
umental graft, known to Ameri
can history? For Honolulu water,
for Honolulu wharves and for the
purpose of starting the bloomin
County of Oahu on the high road,
this legislature proposes to set aside
over one million dollars. The
County of East Hawaii, in these
three particulars will have a boost
of $55,000. The people of this
county could well afford to say to
Honolulu that they can get along
without this boost if the County of
Oahu will be reasonable and if Ho
nolulu will pay her own house-hold
The undying greed of the city of
Honolulu is equalled only by the
lamblike submission of the outside
districts. After an era of twenty
years of milking by the insatiate
city, the outsjde districts and their
representatives in the Legislature
supinely sit and allow the leech of
the Territory to swipe and swab up
the swag in her same old way.
Half a million for wharves in
Honolulu and not a cent for Hilo
narbor. Private enterprise alone,
supplies our wants and fills the gap
made by the rapacious robbers in
behalf of Honolulu.
Twenty years ago Hilo wanted
lights for her streets. She prayed
to Honolulu. Honolulu sent over
some kerosene lamps and made Hilo
furnish the posts then kicked be
cause we burned too much oil. A
decade ago Hilo wanted fire protec
tion. She prayed to the Gluttonous
Queen of the Archipelago. They
sent over a wornout and useless
chemical engine and two hose carts
which still stand rusty and useless
save as a monument to the wicked
political system of Hawaii, which
please God is now in the disreput
able throes of an ignominious and
Hilo has a hospital. An ambu
lance has been needed these many
years, Prayers nave been unavail
ing until Dr. Cooper came over and
saw with his own eyes. This week
a grocer's delivery wagon, covered
with black oilcloth was sent over
from Wailuku by the Kinau. From
the depths of our hearts we are
thankful that a wornout dray from
the Honolulu Road Department
was not sent instead of this Wailuku
spring wagon. Our maimed, our
decrepit and our sick may now be
carried over the rockiest streets in
Christendom with a little less of pain
than ever before.
There is Tin appropriation for a
bridge across Wailuku river 111
Hilo. The bridge has been dang
ling in disuse for nearly two years.
Only this week a brilliant Senator
moved to strike from the appropria
tion bill, items for abutments for
this bridge. It is said to be current
opinion in Honolulu, that abut
ments are not necessary for Hilo
bridges. This is a fallacy however,
and we wish to assure the honorable
legislators, that without provision
for abutments, building of the
bridges will be delayed. It is no
more than right that this informa
tion be given out.
He it far from Hilo to indulge in
carping criticism. She has endured
neglect with her colleague country
towns in Hawaii since infancy. She
is willing that Honolulu should
now, make her last big damnable
grab, and swallows her indignation
hoping and believing that Misrule
hath heard its death knell in the
passage of the County Hill.
Tins Hilo Hand will continue to
be the best musical organization in
the Hawaiian Islands, maintained
, by musicians of. public spirit and
devotion to their art and to their
city. The people of Hilo will con
tinue to encourage the Hilo band
with that liberality which
hitherto been shown.
The announcement mtule by 1.
Peck Hint ground will be broken on
Itlie fourth of July for the Hilo-Ko-
I bain railroad has aroused the people
and business men of Hilo to a
thorough appreciation of the situa
tion and a celebration on a proper
scale is certain to result.
A prominent Hilo merchant said
to a Titimmit representative yester
day; "Our firm will be one of four
to put up $1000 in cash to defray
the expense of ceremonies connected
with breaking ground for the Hilo
Kohala railroad. We make no re
servation except that the cere
monies of breaking ground be fol
lowed up by actual construction
work on the road. By actual con
struction work we mean that such
steps be taken say during the mouth
of July, as will prove that the rail
road is on firm feet and that Hilo's
commercial deliverance is at hand.'
If actual work is not done in July,
then a contract entered into during
July for road construction, made
secure by the usual bonds given by
contractors, will be sufficient evi
dence of the bonafide character of
the road scheme to claim our $250
contribution to the opening cere
monies on July 4th. We hope you
will be able to find three other firms
who will round out the $1000 to be
used by the Executive Committee
for a barbecue luau, or any other
diversion suitable for the day and
The inducements at Home are
certainly large for the promoters
of the H-K. railroad to close with
some one ofthe offers made to
finance the road.
HAINT IT A SHAME.
And now the kaleidoscopic legis
lature has decided that Herger's
band shall not come to Hilo or visit
the other Islands. The $8000
necessary for these iunkets has
been cut out of the appropriation
bill. The reasons advanced were
that the outer districts do not ap
preciate the music of the band and
besides, the baud is needed to play
ofT the steamers which leave Hono
lulu. The people of the outer (lis-
tricts, who do not appreciate Ber
ger's rendition of "A Hot Time,"
and "The Cable is Here," will
please note that they are still to be
taxed for music that fans only the
stagnant air of Honolulu wharves.
Honolulu's musical "Aloha" to de
parting friends and strangers will
not be labelled "From All Hawaii."
It will bear double embossed in tin,
trade mark on every "tune,"
"Honolulu, the open hearted, Ho
nolulu, Queen of the Archipelago,
Honolulu, sister mit der Dawn and
Bride zu de Volcano Afterglow,
How she hades ter haf yer go.
What? No? Yes. Py Gott, Veil!
"Tins Wikhi.is.ss" is the name
of a new daily paper published at
Avalon, Santa Cataliua, an island
ofTthe Coast of California. The
infant prodigy claims- to be the first
paper in the world to publish sure
enough dispatches, transmitted by
wireless telegraphy. This claim
sounds funny to Hawaiian Islanders
with whom wireless telegraphy has
been a household word for nearly
three years. The H11.0 Triiiunh
has been publishing sure-enough
wireless news for two years and
moreover is issued at Hilo upon a
sure-enough Knchanted Isle in an
Always Summer Sea.
Why should not the people of
the Territory have something to say
as to the location of Territorial in
stitutions? While the legislature
is 'discussing appropriations for the
erection of a new penetentiary why
should it be taken for granted that
Honolulu is the proper place for it.
The location of the penetentiary on
Maui or Hawaii or Kauai, would
probably follow any eflort made to
ascertain the wishes of the people
upon the subject. It is the duty of
legislators, who are sent to repre
sent out side Districts, to represent
Tiiinos that a,re better boosted
than knocked: An American cele
bration of the Fourth of July at
Hilo; The Elks minstrels; The Hilo
i Tennis Club and The Hilo-Kohala
HILO AND THE FOURTH.
The action of the mass meeting
last Saturday resulting in the ap
pointment of a committee of nine
to have general supervision of the
Hilo Fourth of July celebration, to
gether with the ceremonies incident
I to breaking ground for the Hilo-
Kohala Railway promises a day of
more than ordinary interest and
importance. The ceremonies con
nected with the railroad, alone
should bring to Hilo hundreds of
visitors. The racing and sports of
the day will be planned on a scale
that will equal any program hereto
fore given. In addition to these
attractions, the Order 01 Elks is
at work upon an evening entertain
ment that will eclipse anything in
its line yet given in Hilo.
These attractions should bring
many visitors to Hilo on the Fourth,
and Hilo should prepare to enter
tain and care for them in her best
LOOK FOR GOOD MEN.
The best element in the ranks
of the native in politics concedes
that under the American flag every
citizen has equal jxalitical rights and
is entitled to consideration accord
ingto ability and merit. If the
white politicians will act upon the
same broad principle in local poli
tics the result of the first County
election will be amazing to those
who were afrafd of local govern
ment. There are Hawaiians good
enough and with sufficient ability
to fill every office in the Territory
from that of Governor down to
Pound Master. There are among
us both Hawaiian and haole citi
zens unfit to hold any office. The
business ahead of all good citizens
is to choose the right men. They
can be found in any and all
branches of our mixed population.
Foil County officials in "this
County the slogan of the Hawaiian
voters will not be "down with the
haole." Frank expressions from
the leaders of the Hawaiians in
politics are to the effect that while
the haole will not be boycotted, the
natives will be guarded in their en
dorsement of malihinis. The Scylla
and Charybdis of the Hawaiian
clement is the "missionary" on the
one hand and the malihiui on the
Tun vital statistics printed in
this issue on the local page are full
of interest and convey a fund of in
