OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT.
The Ililo Fire Department is up
against a hard proposition. For
instance, the electric light bills since
July have not been paid, and in re
sponse to n letter Mr. White of the
office of Superintendent of Public
Works says he is of the opinion that
the chief engineer should settle these
bills out of his own pocketbook.
The trouble is that no appropriation
was made for the Ililo Fire Depart
ment other than a $900 payroll and
a certain stun for the purchase and
maintenance of a chemical engine.
Strictly construed, this leaves no
money to pay incidental expenses.
The money already advanced by
the members of the fire department
to the amount of $75 cannot be re
paid. As a result of this state of affairs
the engine room is in darkness and
the fire department is like a boat at
sea without sail or rudder. The
blame for the situation may be
everywhere or nowhere; the trouble
is that the department is seriously
crippled. If we were under the old
regime resort might be taken of the
L. A. Andrews scheme of drawing
money for one purpose and using it
for another. It is hardly probable,
however, that Holloway would
countenance a straw man on the
payroll for the sake of getting
at money to buy axle grease and
The only plan is to take up a
subscription among the merchants
to keep the department on an effi
cient basis until another Legislature
ward, which carries the smoke and
steam over the cliff. There can be
no illumination above the crater un
less there are clouds of some kind
to give back a reflection.
According to Dana's work on
volcanoes this same crater uiu a
continuous performance in 1873-74
lasting eighteen months. On sev-
ernl occasions during this period
the mountain was dark and the cra
ter apparently not active. Upon
one of these times of supposed in
action a party ascended and a de
scription of what they saw is as
follows: "For the jnost part the
floor of the crater was an area of
solid black lava; but at one end
(southwest) there was a fountain of
yellow fire one hundred and fifty
feet broad, which played in several
but independent jets to a height of
150 to 300 feet. From the crater's
edge the roar was like that of an
ocean, rising and falling like 'the
thunder music of windward Ha
It is altogether probable that K.
D. Baldwin is correct, and that if
Thk shipment of nearly 3000
bunches of bananas by the Rose
crans shows there has been a healthy
growth of this industry in the past
year. While the growers have been
securing good prices the benefit
does not end with them. The ba
nana business makes money for the
railroad, the steamship lines, and
gives employment to many men on
steamer day. The acreage now in
bananas in this district when in full
bearing will open the eyes of many
to the possibilities in this line of

The additional information re
quired in connection with the
County Act and the consequent
mission of Mr. Hatch is, more com
plete details of what threatens the
law as it now stands. Wherein is
it vulnerable from the legal stand
point and is it a foregone conclusion
that the law will be annulled by the
courts if it is attacked?
As between Governor Carter and
the Advertiser, the public knows
very well that Carter worked for
the County law and the Advertiser
fought the county proposal as vigor
ously as it was able, withdrawing
from the contest only when it had
to. The Carter-Hatch .movement
will be in a better position to discuss
intelligently when it is known
whether the plan is to have Congress
reenact the present County law as
a Federal statute or broaden the
Organic Act so that the relation of
the Counties to the Territory may
be more clearly established. The
Territory of Hawaii wants the
county law preserved, and although
the Bulletin does not support an
appeal to Congress to reenact every
law the Legislature puts on the
statute book, the prospecting tour
of Mr. Hatch will be of great value
if his exact purposes and exact find
ings are given to the public. The
public has no occasion to place con
fidence in the morning paper's pro
