Wn will celebrate.
But we will not linve fire works.
Neither will the bay be illumi
nated. It will be dark.
"Save where the lights of the Jap
anese fisherman scintillates.
But the IJlks minstrels will be in
the center of the stage.
And the beauty of Hilo will be

And if it rains outside, never

and well worth the price.
On the forenoon of the Fourth
we will break Railroad ground.
Never was occasion more auspicious
for making of joy and great acclaim.
We will breathlessly watch the
cowboy lasso the recalcitrant steer
with his lariat and shiver with ex
citement when the wall-eyed bron
cho from Shipman's ranch admits
he's busted. '
And we'll go to the races.
Come and celebrate with us.
The organization, known as the
Allied Trades of Hilo is standing
before the open gate of opportunity.
should step in and live up to its
fullest possibilities. These three
hundred laboring men of Hilo can
become if they will, the most potent
political factor in Hilo and this
county. While the Allied Trades
is not a political organization, yet
its members are all American citi
zens and each one is vitally inter
ested in public affairs. At the out
set of County organization, it is
fortunate that the interests of labor
may be safeguarded by an organiza
tion in whose counsels all classes
are represented. The County offi
cials who shall first fill the chairs in
the offices of the County of East
Hawaii should be made to know
the value of the laboring man's
vote. Then in public matters in
which labor is interested, these offi
cials will heed the just demands of
the laboring men of Hawaii.
A labor party has not been effec
tive in American politics. A poli
tical party cannot be founded upon
a specialty, or maintained by re
cruits from any single industrial
class. Especially in Hawaii, would
it be unwise for laboring men to
form a party of their own.
To carry their influence furthest
they must work together in the
councils of one or the other of the
dominant political parties. It is in
conventions and at the primaries,
that the laboring man can do his
most effective work. Let him work
here in unison and concord and he
will dominate the politics of Hawaii.
Not only will an active interest
in local politics augment the in
fluence of this labor organization
but it will become one of the most
potent factors in establishing har
mony between the different elements
of our voting population. The I la
waiian, the Portuguese and the emi
grant from the mainland will stand
on a common platform and race
predjudice will disappear before the
light of common interest. A labor
organization properly handled can
be of great value to" its individual
members in promoting their welfare
in business. It can be of great ser
vice in a community like this, by
conservative and united action in
Iif the Honolulu papers would
worry less about the debt of Great
Brittaiu and endeavor to curtail the
extravagance of their own city, the
debts of this Territory might be less
formidable and those journals would
be talking more to the point.
Tin? opportunity is here this
year to pull off the biggest Fourth
of July celebration in .the history of
the city. Hard work by all mem
bers of committees will bring nbout 1
a realization of nil plans.
THU POETIC PAST.
When the mammoth Young
building replaced tin cottages and
arbors and tropical underbrush, that
oce infested the heart of Honolulu,
there were voices lifted up in regret
at the passing of old Hawaiian land
scape. There was even a wail in
the Advertiser over the extinction
of typical indigenous Is1nnd charm
by the relentless march of progress
and commercialism. The tear was
due the old, mingled as it was, with
the aloha extended to the new but
sterner and better order of things.
In the same spirit the Tkiiiunk
dropped a sigh in behalf of the dis-
appearing wnui-jammcr ana me
good old salt sailors that enlivened
this port, before the advent of levia
than steamships. The sigh we
dropped was sacred but it was not
intended to discourage Jim Hill or
other capitalists in their plans to
plough the Pacific waves with mon
ster ships. It was not intended to
turn back the hands on the dial
a . t .
plate of time, to a day when sugar
from Olaa and Waiakea and Wai-
uaku and Ouomca should again
seek New York by sailing vessel
and Southern-Pacific. In the glory
of everything new and better, it is
somebody's business to sigh in be
half of the poetic past.
Tun Hilo Park Bill sets apart
two tracts for park purposes, 500
acres at Hoolulu Park and 6 acres
of the Baker lease niakai Front
street, between Salvation Army
Hall and Winche Factory, so that
the "Coffee Shop's" funny man did
not sec such a funny thing after all
when he noticed that Senators
Cecil Brown and P. P. Woods dis
cussed the possibilities of wharf ex
tension at Hilo.
Tin; political fermentation which
began in Iaupahoehoe last week is
a good sign. Similar meetings in
every district in the county would
be productive of good results. The
people should not be backward in
pointing out their favorites. Open
expression of the popular will,
leaves less underground work for
the professional politician and guar
antees better results.
Tni? Legislature refused to repay
J. A. Cummins the $5000 political
fine imposed by the Republic.
There were many court martial con
victions at the time but Cummins
alone paid a fine. The committee
having the matter in charge was
afraid that a restoration of this
money would open the door to
numerous damage suits.
iiousk rui:s IN HILO.
Uko tliii Mosquito Its Numbers
crease Through ScrIIkuiicc.
The gradual increase in the number of
common house- (lies in Hilo is noticeable.
There was a time when the housefly was
as scarce here as snakes now are. Hut
each year sees the domesticatad fly in
larger numbers and it is but a rjuestiou of
time when this pest will be as (real a
nuisance as the mosquito.
This at any rate is the testimony of
I'rof. Hctisliaw, who keeps track of such
things and who 'knows the cause and
effect of a thousand things in the natural
world, which are not noticed by the ordi
""There will come n time," said Prof.
Heushaw ths other day. "when the house
fly and the mosquito will be suppressed
bv ordinance iust as certain other nui
sances now arc abated. Civilization
marches slowly, and it may be a long
time, but it will come. The house fly,
like the mosquito, afflicts humanity be
cause people are careless. The affliction
does not end with the fly, however, for it,
like the mosquito, is uim a vehicle for
the distribution of disease germs."

Program for the Hoys.
Last Sunday afternoon according to
notice the Hilo baud appeared at Waia
kea lo give a concert. Two pieces were
played and rain began to fall. The bai d
shifted to the depot where the protecting
eaves gavcihcm shelter. The rain con
tinued until train time, when Superinten
dent Lambert appeared and invited the
musicians to take a ride to Mountain
View. They accepted and gave a con
tinuous musical concert all the way.
They played at all the stations and at
tracted big crowds of people wlio thought
possibly President Roosevelt had ex
tended his tour to Hawaii.
Asa result of the incident Mr. Lambert
states that he will erect a baud stand near
the btntioii. so that the hoys may play at

SOUTH II 11.0 Hl'KAKh.
Moiitlons NnniPH Tor onicc of the
County or Knit llnnnll.
The citizens of North Hilo at the
metropolis of Liutpahoelioc have the
proper spirit. The Governor's sig
nature to tlie County bill was
scarcely dry before they had called
n mass meeting to deliberate upon
the political outlook. The meeting
was held at Laupahochoe and was
attended by the leading Hawaiians,
haolcs and Portuguese of the dis
trict. The meeting recognized that
the District of North Hilo polls the-
fewest votes of any district in the
County but for that reason if for-rio
other it was felt that it was their
business to speak out early.
It was their opinion that the first
Board of County Commissioners for
the County of Fast Hawaii, should
be composed of one member from
Hamakua, one from North Hilo
two from South Hilo and one from
Puna. One of the distinguished
politicians from Olaa claims that
North Hilo should be counted with
Hamakua and that Puna should
have two on the Board.
The Laupahoehoe meeting was
unanimous in the belief that W. G.
Walker of Ookala should be their
first member of the County Board.
The name of K. W. Barnard was
cheered lustily as a winner for the
Treasuryship and Geo. Kaihenui
of Hilo was mentioned as a satis
factory man for County Auditqn
The convention spirit settled heavily,
upon the meeting and expressions
were numerous as to candidates for
other County offices.
W. H. Beers seemed to be the
choice for the office of County Clerk
and Paul Jarret of Puna was con
sidered an ideal man for the posi
tion now occupied by L. A. An
drews. In discussing the office of
County Attorney, Laupahoehoe
sentiment crystallized around the
name of Carl S. Smith.
Some of the more conservative at
the meeting, warned the people that
they were going too fast and that in
expressing their preferences so early
and so emphatically, was one way
of inviting defeat. It was noted
that North Hilo is a minority dis
trict and that to show their hand
might be a signal for bigger cards
from Hilo and Hamakua. How
ever, the desire to throw straws in
to the air to ascertain the direction
and the velocity of the breezes in
local politics. The significance of
the meeting was, that in the con
vention to be held later, North Hilo
will back the names mentioned
above, the ordinary changes of
heart and opinion in politics alone
intervening to the contrary.
No Public Administrator. "
Honolulu, April 27. Governor
Dole achieved the distinction this
morning of having a veto sustained
by unanimous vote. His message
on the law relating to estates of de
ceased persons and creating the
office of public administrator pointed
out reasons of a veto so clearly that
not a voice was raised against it in J
the House and the members who
had passed the law, on motion of
Paele, seconded by Chillingworth,
approved the veto, The message
was as follows:
"My objections to the bill are as
"Section 12 provides that Public
Administrators shall take charge of
the estates for which no administra
tors are appointed and which in
consequence "are being wasted, un
cared for or lost;" "estates 'of de
cedents who have no known heirs;"
estates ordered into his hands by
the court," and "estates upon which
letters of administration have been
issued to him by the court."
"The two latter provisions give
the Court undue power to take
possession of estates and pass them
into the hands of the Public Admin
istrator, whether it is for the inter
est of the heirs to have such pro
ceedings taken and the consequent
expense incurred or not; and when
it is considered that the Clerk of
the Circuit Court the appointee of
the Circuit Judge, is to be cx-officio
1 tjie Public Administrator, and ' that
1 h(, ;s m rc(.uire(1 to ve fur.
ther bond other than his official
bond as clerk, except when real
estate is to be sold, the danger of
these provisions and the opportunity
they afford to corrupt officiale, may
be in some measure understood." .
