Annual Report of the Hilo Wo
mens' Hoard, branch of the Hono
lulu Hoard. Prepared for the an
nual business meeting of the Hilo
Foreign Church, January 20, 1904.
During the year beginning Janu
ary 20, 1903, the Society has held
eight regular meetings. In June
it was impossible on account of den
gue fever to assemble the usual at
tendants, though a quorum was
gathered to accomplish the annual
June election of the Kindergarten
Committee, and listen to their re
ports. The custom has been estab
lished here and in Honolulu tb
omit the meetings of July and Aug.
on account of summer flittings. In
December we were without a leader,
aud much occupied with prepara
tions for Christmas. We resume
the meetings this week.
Mrs. Nash lead us through the
year; we owe much lo her willing
and acceptable service: It was
.through her suggestion , that in
Febuary the Womens' Bcwrfil held
a thank offering meeting, invita
tions by note were sent about very
generally, over fifty ladies were
present, a number of whom, some
not members, kindly assisted in
providing the little entertainment
of mottoes, music aud refreshments.
We were much gratified to raise
In May the meeting was about
missionary ships. Ladies in gener
al selected appropriate quotations,
aud a few appointed for the topics
told about the "Morning Star," the
"Southern Cross" Bishop Patter
son's vessel in the South Seas,
"The Messenger of Peace" among
the Samoan Islands, John Patten's
"Dayspring" at the New Hebrides
and the "Allen Gardiner" ntTierra
After the sunnuer vacation Mrs.
Nash invited the society, to the par
sonage, and after the devotional
service, we listened to the vacation
experiences of several ol the sum
mer absentees; Mrs Futneaux from
Boston, the Misses Deyo and Pot
ter from Lake Tahoe, Mrs. Scott
from Washington. There was an
uplifting spirit in all that was said
about the beauties of art and nature,
and in Mrs. Scott's mention of the
intense interest manifested in

Mrs. Nash made her farewell at
the November meeting, which was
lead by Miss Potter. We are now
without a president; that lack we
hope immediately to supply.
Mrs. Hyde, the late president of
the Parent Society, was with us
several months aud often took part
in the meetings; a favor which was
The tru& annual meeting ol our
Women's Board is in April, that
our report may be near the time
aud in readiness for the June an
nual meeting of the Honolulu Pa
rent Board. Our officers during
the period covered by this paper
have been Mrs. F. L. Nash, vice
president; Mrs. L. C. Lyman, as
sistant; Mrs. Severance, treasurer;
Miss Coan, secretary. We have
now a membership of twenty-four.
The benevolences regularly as
sisted by the society are the Hilo
Free Kindergarten, aud a mission
day school for Christian Japanese
held in the afternoon at Waiakea.
For these two objects we are pledg
ed $5 a month each, we also aim
when in funds to help the Waiakea
Sewing School. The latter is kept
going by a committee yearly ap
pointed by the Board, it consists
now of Mrs. Shaw, Mrs McTaggart
and My. Hayes. Mr. Wright of
the Volcano tables has kindly pro
mised assistance in the way of car
riages, to the town ladies who
teach in the sewing school. We
also sometimes make small gifts to
other objects, as to the Chinese
Kindergarten for instance. The'
Hilo Free Kindergarten is cared
for by a faithful committee also ap
pointed by th Board Mrs. Scott,
Mrs. Terry, Miss Lyman, Miss 'J.
Deyo and Mrs. Furtieaux. During
the past year the attendance at the
school has been excellent. The
work done by both Miss Huggius
as substitute and Miss Sumner as
principal, whom we welcomed back
In September, deserve much praise,
the good work of the two assis
tants also merits favorable nention. '
Those1 who attended the recent ,
Christmas exercises of the school
could not fail to note the beneficial
results of the efforts made among
the little ones. Miss Summer re
ports an average for the fall term of
61, with an enrollment of 71. Four
teen visitors during the term.
The expenses have been met up to
date, and the outlook for the year
has brightened very materially since
the rccnt gift of $100 from Mrs.
Hayes and her young helpers
part proceeds of the recent enter
tainment "The Miser's Mill."
The financial prospects of the
Women's Board are not so bright,
fonr months without meetings tell
on the treasury. If, however, the
members would remind their purses
of some back dues, and a few be
lated envelopes would hasten along,
we should be at least able to meet
our expenses "up to date." With
a membership of twenty-four and
full meetings we hope for a replen
ishing of funds.
H. F. COAN,
Home Killers Will Not (lo to the
Honolulu, H. T., January 20.
For, two days the Home-Rulers
have been trying to get a meeting
of the executive committee for the
consideration of the proposition to
appeal the recent decision of the
Territorial Supreme Court in the
County Act case to the Supreme
Court of the United States. For
some reason or other, the propo
sition of appealing, which met with
such favor a'mong the Home Rulers
the day after the death of the Coun
ty Act, has met during the last few
days with lukewarm support.
Why this should be no one
knovs. An attempt will be made
to get a meeting for tomorrow fore
noon. One of the members of the Home
Rule party said this afternoon that
he thought there would be consider
able argument should the question
be brought up at all, but he be
lieved in the end the whole propo
sition of an appeal would be dropped.
Continuing he said:
"I, for one, cannot see the sense
of appealing this case. It would
simply tie up all the wotk in the
Territory that is needed at present
to make the place livable.
"In the first place, an appeal on
a writ of error would cost not less
than $5,000 and where we are to
get the money from, no one knows.
True, it has been said that there
are some people who will put up
"According to the way I look at
the question, if an appeal is tt ken,
county government must go on
here pending a decision by the Su
preme Court of the United States,
aud you can see what a beautiful
situation that would immediately
lead us into.
"In the first place, Attorney
Rawlins would bring suit against
the Territory for the $520,000 ap
propriated by the Legislature for the
County of Oahu; for it is certain
that the 'Territorial Treasurer
would refuse to disgorge. Thus
the county would be out of funds;
no one would get any salary aud
there would be a set of very dis
gruntled politicians. Attorney
Rawlins would have to take the
case to the Supreme Court aud that
body would decide that county gov
ernment is dead. So the beautiful
round would be kept up.
"No, 1 do not believe an appeal
would be to the best interests of the
community and there are many in
the Home Rule executive commit
tee who think the same way so
that when the question comes up,
I think we can prevent any further
action. If we arc to have county
law, let it come through Congress.'

COUNTY ACT IX COXMItKSS.
House of Representatives Urglii
Consideration of tho Law.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 4. Re
presentative Spalding, of North
Dakota, chairman of the House
subcommittee, which has in charge
the County bill for Hawaii, said
today that he intended soon to call
a meeting to further consider that
measure. It will have to be amend
ed somewhat before it is favorably
reported. When Mr. Spalding had
his favorable report nearly drawn,
following the directions of the full
Committee on Territories, he hap
pened upon a copy of Gov. Dole's
report. Therein he found on page
48 the Governor's unfavorable
comment upon that measure in
sending it back to the Legislature.
"Those defects, as the Governor
saw them, "said Mr. Spalding today,
"seem not to have been corrected.
We intend now to go over the bill
before us very carefully to correct
those defects as much as possible.
The bill presented to the committee
was in general a very good bill. It
was carefully drawn. The provis
ions for preventing grafting and
corruption are good. But I did not
like the omission of any provision
for recording deeds in the States
and Territories on the mainland.
That was apparently an oversight.
The framers of the law evidently
followed their old law, before an
nexation, making provisions only
for the recording of Hawaiian deeds
before officials in foreign countries.
"Then some of us did not like
the provisions about income taxes
aud taxes 011 inheritances. But I
think we shall let that stand."
Mr. Spalding seems of the opinion
that the bill before the committer
will become law with various mod
ifications. However, it will nec
essarily be some little time before it
gets before the House.
Pretoria, Jan. 21. The bill au
thorizing the introduction of Asiatic
labor has passed second reading.
