UusiNKSS houses generally will
close in Hilo this afternoon.
ThkrK will be no charge nt the
gate this afternoon at IIoolulu Park.
Hilo feels remarkably well satis
fied with herself this Fourth of July.
Tin? dengue will soon be at the
end of Us rope in Hilo. There will
he none left who have not had it.
It is expected that an air of un
disturbed quiet will reign with
equal solemnity at Honolulu and
Thk railroad ceremonial tomor
row forenoon will not be an unin
teresting affair. It will be worth
hustling around early to see.
,Thk decision of H. E. Cooper to
retain the office of Superintendent
of Public Works will please the
people who want to see that office
Thk Hilo friends of Judge A. S.
Humphreys and Frank E. Thomp
sotrwill not worry until they see
two gory scalp locks dangling at
the belt of the Attorney-General.
In postponing the work of the
Court at Honokaa until next week,
and in declining the invitation to
make the Fourth of July address
Judge Little has disarmed his pip
ing critics most effectually.
It now looks like the weather
would be favorable for fireworks.
There are none on the program,
but the Trihuni; recommends that
all that can be found in the stores
be purchased and properly burned.
SoMKHODYon the staff of the Star
is unloading an awful lot of infor
mation just now about the Russian
Empire. A few more of these ter
rible secrets let loose and the Czar
will send a battleship into Honolulu
For thij success of today and
tomorrow E. N. Holmes, general
chairman, should come in for a full
measure of credit. He has had to
exercise the qualities of diplomat,
judge and slave, and has done well
in the role of each.
Half the visitors in Hilo are
wishing the -Crescent City would
live up to her reputation as a rainy
town. They came loaded down
with umbrellas and mackintoshes',
which they have thrown away to
join the residents in supplications
Wiiknkvhk Admiral Beckley
starts out to do something for Hilo
he succeeds. The Admiral decided
that Hilo must have the Hawaiian
band for the Fourth of July. The
hand is here. The credit is due
the plucky Admiral, who couldn't
be b:ateu or bluffed. Hilo had
given up hoping for the musicians,
but Beckley brought them along
with a fine flourish.
Expkrimknts in Honolulu have
proved the dengue fever to be com
municable by mosquito bite. Ob
servation bears this theory out.
There is no predisposing condition
of the system necessary to render
one susceptible. Old residents,
tourists and people just returned
from long vacations, alike fall a
prey to the dengue microbe. That
the mosquito is the man behind the
gun in this case there can be no
Thk success of Mr. Peck at this
time in turning defeat into victory
in the matter of a railroad connect
ing Hilo with Ilamakua, entitles
him to the front seat of honor in
the celehratiou tomorrow. He has
worked hard and wisely and dog
gedly. He has won out, and won
out for Hilo. He took hold of a
proposition discredited hy the mis
takes of others and has it on its
feet. It is entirely fitting that the
people accord to Mr. Peck a few
Tiikki; have been many com
plaints made against the policy fol
lowed in North Hilo of employing
plantation Japanese labor upon the
roads. It is claimed (hat the citi
zen population of that district is en
titled to the first call in this work
and protests have been forwarded
to the Department of Public Works
at Honolulu. "From ten to twehty
Japanese are given work by the
Road Board which should go to
citizens. The Tkiiiunij believes
the wiser and more just policy is
for Road Boards to employ citizen
labor wherever possible. It is not
alone fair, put it is better politics.
Hand to Hilo.
Hilo will think its day of triumph
over the rapacity of Honolulu for
all tin.- cood things paid for out of
the Territorial treasury has come
at last when the steamer Kinatt en
ters the wide-mouthed bay dressed
in flags and the Territorial band
nlnviiit tinon the auarter deck.
Governor Dole, at the conclusion
of an audience given to Admiral
Beckley of Wildcr's fleet and Cap
tain Berger, military bandmaster,
yesterday afternoon (June 29) gave
his consent to the departure of the "' l,m- ' it is unneccs
band for Hilo in today's Kinau tosary to consider whether the matter
play at the Fourth of July celebra-1 " adjudicata or not, for we ngree
tion there with its central feature (with the circuit judge in that case
of breaking ground for the Kohala -
Hilo railroad. '
The appropriation for trips of
the band to the other islands is not
yet law, but Admiral Beckley pro
vided against this little impediment
by advancing the money for ex
penses of this trip.
Honolulu will have to worry out
the Fourth boat races, baseball
and everything with private band
music. It will give the people of
the capital an opportunity of culti
vating a fellow-feeling with the
Hilo people in their deprivation of
metropolitan luxuries most of the
year. The absence of the band
from Honolulu on a Fourth of
July will make the glorious anni
versary on this occasion the most
impressive, in one way, ever here

Honolulu, June 30. The Gover
nor has no power to suspend or re
move heads of departments, accord
ing to a decision rendered by the
Supreme Court this morning in the
matter of II. C. Austin's demand
for his salary as Auditor for the
period of his suspension. The
court unanimously rules as Gear did
on the mandamus, and orders Audi
tor Fisher to draw n warrant for
salary from September 26 to No
vember 30. The decision says:
" 'The salary follows the title' as
a rule, and no sufficient reason is
shown in the case why that rule
should not apply, provided the ap
pellant had the title to the office and
the Tight to exercise its functions
during the period in question.
The question here is whether the
appellant was rightfully suspended;
I that is, whether the Governor had
the power to suspend.
"The appellant contends that this
is res adjudicata .in his favor of a
judgment by a circuit judge in cer
tain mandamus proceedings brought
, that the Governor did not have the
', power to suspend."
Tbe Court reviews the power of
Hhe President of the Republic and
says: "Looking at the Organic
Act ajone, it is clear that the Gov
ernor was not authorized to suspend
the Auditor. We may assume for
flie purposes of this case that the
power of appointment carries the
power of removal in the absence of
constitutional or statutory restric
tion, and even that the restriction
that the appointment shall be by
and with the advice and consent of
the Senate is not sufficient to pre
vent removal by the Governor
alone, and yet it is clear that he
could not remove alone when, as
here, it is expressly provided that
he may remove by and with the
advice and consent of the Senate,
and when it is further expressly
provided that the officer shall hold
ollice for tour .years, etc., unless
sooner removed, that is, iu the
manner specified. If the Gover
nor cannot remove except by and
with the advice and consent of the
Senate, he cannot suspend alone."
