Hiloites of to-day are wont to
swell them selves with the pride of
this city's modernity. Even Ililo
newspapers swell tip occasionly and
claim credit for the down-to-datc
condition of affairs here, and especi
ally to plume themselves in the be
lief that the journals of to-day arc
the pioneer representatives of Gut
tenburg on the Island of Hawaii.
Such is not the case. Long before
the Tribune or the Herald had been
conceived or had gone forth like
winged thought, to enlighten man
kind; before the Bulletin bulletined
or the Star started or the Advertiser
advertised, the Hilo Advocate was
booming Hilo. The number dis

issued in July 1880. Its colums
reek with advertisements and
"boom" stuff for Hilo. The July
number was the last, the following

Ksl limit os of Judge Little Are Cut
At Saturday's meeting of the
Board the following communication
was received from Judge Little:
"Gentlemen: I have the honor
to transmit herewith an estimate of
the probable expenses for my Court
for the fiscal year ending February,
"The estimates have been pre
pared in accordance with the ex
penses of former terms of Court, as
appears on record in our Court, and
if you will permit me to say in ex
planation that, should any of these
estimates be too high, of course the
money would remain in the treas
ury unexpended and subject to the
order ol the Board of Supervisors
the same as other funds.
"The experience of Courts is that
you had better make the estimate
high rather than too low, and inas
much as no money can be paid out
of the treasury without a proper
voucher approved by the judge of
the Court, whatever the estimate
may be above what is actually
needed will remain in the treasury.
"I further suggest that our terms
of Court here fluctuate sometimes
we have a very heavy term of Court
and sometimes the term is rather
light, so that it is impossible to
make an estimate that will exactly
meet the demands of the Court.
"Very respectfully submitted,
"GILBERT F. LITTLE,
Accompanying the U-tter were
the following estimates:
February Term $2,000
May Term 2,000
August Term 1,200
November Term 2,000

To Ceylon by Hall.
For some years past there has
been a proposal to link the island
of Ceylon to the mainland of India
by a railwify carried across the
coral reef of Adam's bridge and '
the island of Raines waram; and the
project has now been brought with
in view of completion by the report
of a railway commission, which has
just been issued in India, recom
mending the construction of a.
broad-gauge line. Geological evi
dence shows that Ceylon was orig
inally joined to India by a continu-1
ous isthmus, which, according to j
the temple records of Rameswaram, .
was breached by a great storm in '
1480. When the two countries are ,
once more joined together by a
r railway bridge, and continuous in-1
tercourse is established, the present ,
system, which makes Ceylon a j
crown colony, separated from our
Indian empire, will seem more than !
