If the Democratic and the Home
'Rule organizations of the Territory
would join the Republicans in a
united stand for county government
the Delegate at WasHington would
feel spurred to make a herculean
effort to secure action by Congress
at this term. The Democratic or
ganization has already refused to do
this, stating as the main reason,
their objection to Congressional in
terference in local affairs, It is
well known that some of the most
influential men in Democratic coun
cils at Honolulu are not only op
posed to "Congressional interfer
ence with local affairs," but they
arc also opposed to county govern
ment. These opponents include
even Hawaiians who are close ad
visers of our Delegate at Washing
ton. It has been stated, rud is be
lieved by some that the efforts of
Kuhio for county law legislation in
Congress have been affected by this
The people are therefore in a fair
way to have their will come to
naught, by reason ol. the circum
stances and the intrigue of politi
cians of all parties. Governor Car
ter pledged the strength of his ad
ministration to the task of securing
county government. He has been
hewing very close to the line, heed
less of the flying chips, upon this
question. He should not be per
mitted to plead the indifference of
the people, as an excuse for any
diminished zeal on his part in this,
matter. The friends of county
government should keep that issue
in the fore ground till Congress ad
journs and then take it up again at

HARD UP HOTELS.

Philip Peck, of Hllo, has ordered 800
tons of 70-pouinl steel raits from eastern
manufacturers for the HiloKohata rail
road and these nre now on their way to
the islands. This shipment is destined
particularly for the section of the track
from Hllo to Onotnca.
It has been decided not to lay a steel
bridge across the Wailuku river at Hllo,
as originally planned, this being found
to be too expensive. Instead of this n
pile bridge will be built to cross at another
location. This will be n straight bridge
and will be much larger than the steel
Mr. Hawxhurst has been appointed
Chief Engineer of the railroad and he is
now actively working up plans and
specifications for contracts for grading.
He has placed contracts in Hllo for ties
for the first section of eight miles. The
rails arc 'being furnished by C. llrcvcr &
Co., of Boston, who arc taking part pay

The grading of the road will proceed
as soon as the cane Is cut from the fields

done during the next two or three mouths.

tourists away from one of the seven

the object is to keep the tourist in

intends to spend. As a result he
misses an experience which he
would tell others about as long as
he lived. Sleeping or waking the

expressed his willingness that the

BUTT IN AGAIN.
Since the removal of Sheriff And
rews is a subject that will not down,
it is only proper to keep whacking
away at it. The Herald, which is
Andrews' speaking tube, seeks to
make it appear that the only people
opposed to Andrews are Home
Rulers. This is erroneous. The
opposition includes many of the
best Republicans in Kast Hawaii.
The Home Rulers have formally

For Lurllno I'arty.
The presence of the yacht I.urliuc in
Hilo harbor with such good spirited
voyngeurs aboard as Mr. and Mrs. Sin.
ctair and companions has added decidedly
to the social life of Hilo during the past
fortnight. The Sinclalrs have been the
guests of honor at several little s'ocial
functions ashore and Monday evening the
Lurline decks were illuminated for a
party' from Hilo. Two bus loads were
gathered up and driven to the wharf.
They were met at the landing by two of
the yacht's gasoline launches. Upon
their arrival a'ongside, the deck lights
were turned on and a hearty reception
tendered the boarding party. The bay
was calm and smooth and a perfect moon
light enveloped the shipping In the
harbor. The party numbered about forty
and few of them ever passed a pleasanter
evening. An Hawaiian orchestra played
fine music. Mr. Sinclair added to the
illumination of the night by exploding a
lot of fireworks and delightful refresh
ments were served. The party came off
nt 11 p. 111. a partiug salute from the
yncht'o cumuli l)ciii fired.
Sunday afternoon Mr. Sinclair took n
number of Hilo people ior a sail. The
Lurline spread her wings and went out
as far as Hnknlau, returning with n more
or less sea sick company.
Last Thursday afternoon Mr. and Mrs.
Sinclair, Miss Sinclair and Mr. Freeman
from the Lurline, Mr. and Mrs. L. A.
Thurston from Honolulu and Miss Potter
were the guests of honor at n luau party
given by Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Shipman.
Mr. nnd Mrs. B. F. McStocker nnd Mr.
and Mrs. C. A. Stobie were nlso present.
The Lurline left Wednesday morning
for Honolulu, and after a short stny
there will sail for the South Seas.
More Working Kays.
Honolulu, March 1 The an-1
nouuecment is made that the Wire I
less Telegraph Company is to be 1
required to maintain a regular and I
open service as a condition of re
ceiving its subsidy from the govern '
ment. Superintendent of Public I
Works Holloway is arranging for a 1
daily test of the service and each 1
day the service is interrupted will
cost the company the amount of its
subsidy, or $33.33 13 per day.
"There have been other com
plaints besides the failure to get
messages through when the Gover
nor was on Hawaii," said Holloway.
"We might have overlooked that,
for the storm would interrupt al
most anything. The law is very
indefinite in its terms regarding
conditions of payment. It fails to
say anything about maintaining the
service and seems to only require
the company to make some changes
of poles, but certainly the company
will have to give service before it is
paid the subsidy."
The January subsidy Iras not been
paid yet, Superintendent Holloway
having so far refused to approve a
voucher for $1,000 The Superin
tendent stated this morning that he
could not say yet what would be
done. "I will see how the service
is," he said when asked regarding
the January subsidy.
The company did not begin re
ceiving its subsidy until October,
and before the first voucher was
paid, Henry E. Cooper, then
Superintendent of Public Works,
made investigations and satisfied
himself that the requirements of the
statute appropriating the subsidy
had, been complied with. Another
test was made when Holloway be
came Superintendent of Public
Works and was called on to approve
The company has spent over
$6,000 in improvements and better
ments, aside from repairs, since the
legislature pass-d the subsidy.
These improvements include land
Hues from Honolulu to Barber's
Point, and from Mahukona to Hilo.
The latter is about seventy-five
miles in length. About fifteen miles
more, will be built there connecting,
the new station at Puako'with Hilo.
The last storm damaged not only
the poles at Lahaiua and at Kauai,
but the laud line between here and
Barber's point, as it did the Oalui
Railway's line of telephone.
