. Superintendent Cooper's visit to
Ililo was disappointing in that it
was so short. It was, perhaps, the
best Mr. Cooper could do at this
tune, but it would have been very
much appreciated by the people of
Hilo if he had spent more time in
the Crescent City. Several men
who had important matters to bring
to the attention of the head of the
Public Works Department were at
the Tkiuunk oflice Tuesday morn
ing inquiring where Mr. Cooper
could be found. He had left at
sun-up for I.aupahochoe, having
given Ililo all the time at his dis
posal. The meeting of Mr. Cooper with
the Road Hoard Monday night was
an important occasion, and should
have been attended by the leading
merchants and citizens of the town.
Mr. Cooper himself was surprised
that so few were on hand. The
facts are that this meeting, like all
other meetings of the Road Hoard,
was not announced. Therefore the
public was not present. It would
be a wise idea for the Road Hoard
to apprise the people of their meet
ing dates. The opinion of property
owners and taxpayers is entitled to
consideration. Kspecially was it a
mistake to have had so important a
meeting as the one last Monday
night without giving the people a
chance to participate

SitVHKAi.citizens have been heard
to say that they would feel more
like contributing funds asked for

different. The fact remains that
Hilo should aid with a liberal hand
the movement to induce tourists
and immigrants to come to the Is
lands. We could contribute with a more
cheerful face if we did not know
that nearly every important road is
in a state of neglect and that no
money was appropriated to improve
them. We do not forget that our

Oahu of cutting Ililo out of appro

In a news article from Honolulu,
published this week, the opinion of
Honolulu lawyers is stated to be
that the five year residence clause
as a qualification to hold office under
the Torrens Land Act is unconstitu
tional. The article also cites cases
decided in the States in support of
that position. If the five year clause
in the Torrens act is void, the three
year clause in the County bill is
open to the same construction.
Judge Little was asked by a Tki
duni: representative to give his
opinion on the matter. The Judge
said: "The constitutional inhibitory
provision as to 'class' legislation,
either in State or Territory, applies
with equal force. This is merely
my judgment, ofT-hand, yet it is
from a constitutional standpoint,
fundamental, and the American
judges in this Territory will no doubt
so hold if the question should be

friends a duty to perform in testing

is the statement of J. T. Stacker
that L. A. Andrews will not be a
candidate for Sheriff if William
Todd or some other good man should
run. Mr. Stacker is Privy Coun
sellor to the Sheriff, and naturally
should know what- he is talking
about. There is one thing certain:
either what the Sheriff's Privy
Counsellor said is true, or it is not
true. If Andrews does not intend
to withdraw, as stated by his Privy
Counsellor, then it is clear that the
Privy Counsellor has had his ear to
the ground and has heard the rum
ble of discontent and dissatisfaction
with Sheriff Andrews, and has
heard the yearnings of the people
for "Good Oak Timber" in the
Sheriff's office. In other words,
Stacker is scared and is trying to
make good with all the timber that
is in the field.
Speaking of awkward positions;
how would you like to have a Privy
Counsellor who would shout for
you from the house tops but betray
you in the cellar?
His trip from the Volcano House
to Hilo made Superintendent Cooper
sick. To think of thirty miles of
such road with not a dollar to put it
in condition' The one thing that
prevented Mr. Cooper from commit
ting suicide was the fact that he had
recommended with all his might an
appropriation of $50,000 to make
the road what it should be.
