The Governor of the Territory
Geo. R. Carter mid party were tnken
in tow by the Hilo Reception Corn
mittec five miles ont at Papaiicou
Sunday evening nnd were conducted
to the city, arriving at between 6
and 7 o'clock. In the Governor's
party were Secretary Atkinson, the
Governor's private secietary Mr.
Crcedon, Forester Hosmcr and Mr.
Meyer of the Advertiser. They
were met on behalf ol Hilo town by
a committee consisting of Messrs.
J. A. Scott, J. T. Moir, J. V. Ma
son, A. Hamburg and J. T. Baker.
Governor Carter was taken to the
home of S. L. Desha, where he will
make his headquarters while in the
city. The rest of the party were
conducted to the Bachelors' club
where arrangements had been made
for their comfort.
The announcement had been
made that Governor Carter and
Secretary Atkinson would be present
at the Union service Sunday even
ing at the Haili Church. Accord
ingly the church was packed. As
Governor Carter mounted the pulpit
platform with Rev. S. h. Desha,
the audience could not forgo ex
pressing its greeting with an ener
getic clapping of hands. Secretary
Atkinson had not believed that th"
scheme was serious to have him
make his bow to the Hilo public
from a Sunday evening pulpit, and
was not prepared for the reality be
fore him when he vas escorted to
the church a few moments after the
appearance of Governor Carter.
However, he marched bravely to
the front and completed the quar
tette on the rostrum, which was
Rev. Mr. Sheilds of the First Fore
ign Church, Rv. S. 1,. Desha, Gov
ernor Carter and Secretary Atkin
son. Behind them was the Ha
waiian Chioir of over forty voices.
In front of them was a packed
house. Conspicuous among the
listeners was Judge S. B. Dole.
Alter preliminary music by the
choir and an invocation by Rev
Shields, Governor Carter was in
troduced by Rev. S. L. Desha.
The Governor made a brief speech,
which was interpreted by Rev. De
su. He slated thai lie had come
to Hilo to learn of the necessities
of the District and to become ac
quainted with the people. He was
pleased with the reception accorded
and' said that the people would be
as cordially received as he had been
should they visit Honolulu and call
at the executive offices. He spoke
generally of the problems confront
ing the Administration as it took
up the executive duties of the
Territory and promised that devot
ed and patriotic energy would be
would be given every detail. He
said that one man could do nothing.
With the 'assistance and coopera
tion of the citizens much could be
accomplished. He said the ad
ministration would stand by those
who stood by the administration.
He came into the office as a Ha
waiian born citizen, and for the
purpose of proving that Hawaiiaus
are capable of local government
and of managing their own affairs,
he asked for the cooperation and
support of all citizens in every en
deavor that would benefit the Terri
tory. At the close of the Governors
remarks, the audience gave him a
After more music by the choir,
Secretary Atkinson was introduced.
He said it seemed to him every
other one in the seats before him
were old friends, and hoped before
they left town that everyone pres
ent would be a personal acquain
tance. Speaking of the Adminis
tration, he said it was starting out
on the principle that it should serve
the people and he wanted the people
to make their wishes known. The
administration favors local rule and
desires to work in harmony with
the local authorities in promoting
the welfare of the Territory.
Mr. Atkinson spoke particularly
to the young men present. He said
that in various capacities it had fell
to his lot to be looking for men fo:
positions in politics and in business
life. He said it had been difficult
to find the material and since his
appointment to office he found the
same old task before him, that of
finding the right fellow for respon
sible places. He told the young
men to cultivate the virtues of
sobriety, industry and honesty.
It was easy to be careless in money
matters; to be lazy and to drink
whiskey. He said that young men
with these vices were too numerous
and that they nearly always fail to
fill the bill. Positions both public
and private in these Islands demand
young men of tireless energy; men
who keep their accounts straight
and do not drink. He said there
was no place in the public service
for loafers any more than there is
in the boats in a boat race. He
told the boys to play hard and play
to win, whether they were in a boat
race or a base ball game and to
work hard when it came to work.
He said it would not be long until
the problems now before Governor
Carter would be in the hands of
those who are now boys in Hawaii,
and urged them to be ready and
prepared for the responsibility.

Governor Encounters Muddy Roiuls
and Mires Down.
The journey of the Territorial
officials from Waipio to Hilo was
marked chiefly by encounters with
bad roads and encounters with hos
pitable people along the roadside.
Last Friday morning the party
left Waimea under the pilotage of
D. Forbes of Kukuihaele and headed
for Waipio Valley, where they ar
rived at noon. Here the Hawaiinns
had prepared a big luau which was
participated in by hundreds. After
refreshments, a meeting was held
in Waipio church. The school
children of the valley were present
in a body and gave a patriotic send
off to the occasion by singing
The citizens of Waipio presented
a petition to Governor Carter, ask
ing for the improvement of Waipio
trail and for the opening up of new
homestead areas. The Governor
made a speech promising to do what
he could to improve the road. New
surveys would be ordered at an
early date. With reference to new
homesteads Governor Carter wanted
to do what was best for the people
and the Territory.
Friday night the party rested at
the home of J. U. Moauauli, Deputy
Sheriff of Hamakua. But before
retiring they did justice to a luau
prepared by the people of Honokaa.
Saturday morning Governor Carter,
Secretary Atkinson and Forester
Hosmer starter early for the home
stead district, returning to Honokaa
by 10 o'clock, accompanied by Guy
H. Gere and Mr. Gibb. A crowd
had assembled at the Honokaa
Lyceum. The meeting was ad
dressed by Governor Carter and
others of the party. The needs of
the district were set forth in speeches
by Geo. Kaiser, Mr. Gibb and Mr.
Forbes. The consensus of opinion
was that the main road out from
Ookala and Mud Lane would have
to be fixed or the administration
could never survive in history. Gov
ernor Carter shared this view as it
fell to him to get out and expend a
lot of gubernatorial force in pulling
oue of their buggies out of the mud
or. the main road. Henry Louisson
spoke for better homestead roads.
A. Lidgate, chairman of the Hama
kua Road Board, presented a state
ment showing that while Hamakua
had paid $350,000 in taxes, the
district had received only $97,000
The party left( Honokaa at 3 p.
m. Saturday. On the way to Ookala
the party stopped at Horner's where
a tennis party was on. The ladies
received the Governor and party
and served tea. Saturday night
they stopped with W. G. Walker,
manager of the Ookala plantation.
Laupahoehoe was reached by 10
o'clock Sunday. A meeting was
held at which various matters were
discussed by the Governor. James
Mattoon and Chas. Swain made
speeches, presenting urgent wishes
of the people regarding roads and
homesteads. Leaving Laupahoe
hoe, the party came through toj
Hilo, stopping for refreshments at I
McLenuon's of the Laupahoehoe 1
Sugar Co. ami at the home of Man
