eleven track events, arranged to
attract the best equine metal in the

be the banner race of the season on
any track. The purse is to be $400

points on this Island. She will be
brought over in the near future,

Membership In llllo Union (iocs Up
The Federation of Allied Trades
in Hilo is flourishing like a green
bay tree. If the acquisition of
numbers is a guarantee of success
and strength the Hilo union is cer
tainly on the high road to a realiza
tion of results. Nearly 200 new
members presented themselves last
Monday evening, which brings the
membership close to the 500 mark.
Fircmuns Hall is too small to ac
commodate the crowd of men who
flock to the meetings of this order.
There was scarcely standing room
Among the notable accessions to
membership in the Federation was
W. H. Little, manager of the lum
ber department of the Hilo Mercan
tile Co. Mr. Little made a speech
at the meeting, which was enthusi
astically received. Another matter
that caused the assembly to rejoice
was the information that laborers
on road work in this district had
had their hours reduced in con
formity with a law passed by the
J. G. Serrao offered the Federa
tion the use of an office room in his
new Bridge street building to be
used for labor bureau purposes.
The labor bureau will be operated
for the benefit of the members of
the Allied Trades.
One of the most important mat
ters to be undertaken by the organ
ization is the naturalization of Portuguese.
The charter roll was closed Mon
day night. New members in the

Progress or Loan Hill mid Appro-
prlullon HHI hi lloth Houses.
Honolulu, May 5. The prin
cipal work of the Legislature
yesterday was the agreement on
the division of the surplus sums
to be included in the Loan Appro
priation bill. According to the
resolution passed there will be set'
aside certain sums for each seua
torial district and the members of
both houses will be constituted
committees for the purpose of di
viding up the cash.
The unpaid bills measure went
through the Senate and the House
put it past one stage, while other
measures were introduced and sent
along the road. From the progress
made it would seem probable that
there would be no time lost. Speaker
Beckley made the remark to the
House that the re-printing of meas
ures which were prepared and
printed at the regular session, would
not be countenanced, thus indicat
ing that there will not be great
wasting of public money.

IT is important that, you subscribe for
the Hilo Tribune now. The fact that
a County Government Law is being framed
and will in all probability go into effect
before another twelve month is a good rea
son why the Tribune should go into every
home on this Island. The issues of gov
ernment are coming to the home of every
voter. The Tribune will contain all the
facts necessary to enable the voters of this
Island to form their conclusions upon the
innumerable public issues. It will stead
fastly champion the interests 'of the people
of this Island aud will keep in touch with
every district. With such changes
pending, local news becomes para
mount in importance. You will find it
all in the Hilo Tribune.
