The meeting Inst Friday night at
Fireman's hall for the purpose of
organizing a Hilo Chamber of Com
merce was well attended. There
were probably forty of the leading
merchants and prolessioual men
present. The object of the meet
ing was to form n business men's
organization which shall have for
its purpose the matter of looking
after the general welfare of Hilo.
The meeting was called to order
by A. C. McKenney, who by gen
eral request and unanimous vote
was made chairman for the even
ing. L. Turner was elected secre
tary. The business transacted was
wholly preliminary, the work of
organizing permanently being left
until next meeting. The name of
the organization, selected after
much discussion was "The Hilo
Development Association." -A
committee was appointed to report
at next meeting with a list of offi
cers and a set of general rules.
In considering the name to bo
adopted the discussion covered a
wide range. The trend of opinion
at first expressed was that Hilo
could not or would not successfully
carry on a Chamber of Commerce,
it being said that an attempt to do
so had failed in better times than
we new enjoy. The .motion was
then made to call the organization
"The Hilo Improvement Associa
tion." The discussion was pro
longed. Mr. Peck said that he
bcliqved there was much in a name.
If the modest village or town of
Hilo should attempt to carry on an
organization with a metropolitan
name, it might invite ridicule. On
the other hand a name that was too
local in its significance would not
create the nroper impression abroad.
He thought the name 'Chamber of
Commerce" to be too high sound
ing and considered "The Hilo Im
provement Association" a little too
modest. He therefore movecTlo
amend the name first suggested by
calling it The Hilo Commercial and
Development Association. Mr. C.
E. Wright of the Volcano Stables
and Transportation Co said he had
had experience with long names
and would like a shorter one much
Dr. Hayes slated the fact that in
the New linglaud States every town
and village had its "Improvement
Club" and that these were 1 usually
composed of public spirited women, I
and that the range of their opera
tions did not extend beyond plant
ing trees on the streets and cutting
weeds out of alley ways. He did
not believe the business men of Hilo
desired to work solely along these
lines, laudable as they might be.
He was opposed to using the word
"improvement" in the christening
of the new organization.
V. H. Lambert was heartily in
favor of the movement and believed
it would accomplish much good for
the community. He favored the
adoption of some such name as
"The Hilo Board of Trade."
A. h. Louisson of Hamakua,
who was present, came forward at
this juncture with a word which j,s
characteristic of the man. He. pro
posed to call the new society "The
Hilo Commercial and Development
said he, "means business. It means
new industry, railroads, mills and
new acres opened up to production."
Mr. Louisson's idea caught favor
and after lopping off, the word
"commercial" for the sake of
brevity, the name stood forth "The
Hilo Development Association.

"I should say, that those two
nations being at war all other nations
should maintain strict neutrality,"
said Rear Admiral Silas N. Terry,
commandant of the Naval Station,
yesterday. He was asked for his
opinion as to the war between Ja
pan and Russia. "We can't be too
neutral," continued the Admiral.
"When two nations arc at war, it
is entirely their own business and
no one else has anything to say.
"I do not think it wise for naval
officers (or army officers cither) to
talk for publication on such ques
tions. The indiscretion of public
men and bfficcrs in this matter is
too well known to require any
comment by me. I am very sorry
indeed to see any war between two
nations, both friends of this country.
"One thing seems to have, been
overlooked in this war. There has
been a good deal of discussion as to
whether, or not Russia displayed
auy friendly sympathy for the
United States during the war of the
Rebellion. In the New York
Herald of the 28th, there is a com
munication which public men of
that time had subsequently written
of the diplomatic course taken dur
ing the war, which shows plainly
that Russia was in sympathy with
the United States.
"We know for a fact that during
the visit of the Emperor of Russia
to Paris in 1867 an attempt was
made to assassinate him. The
United States Congress at that time
passed a resolution congratulating
him on his narrow escape and we
sent a special minister to St. Peters
burg in a man ot war to presenr-tne
resolutions of Congress to the Em
peror. That waa very extraordi
nary and the only ins'ance in our
history that Congress has expressed
itself in so pronounced a form to a
foreign sovereign. Occurring so
soon after the close of the Rebellion
it is fair to suppose that this action
of our country was an evidence of
our appreciation of Russia's friendly
sympathy during the Civil War.
"One further fact which I have
never seen published in any paper
is that every nation of Europe as I
remember it, accorded belligerent
rights to the Southern States except
Russia, Portugal and Turkey.
"It sometimes seems strange to
me what short memories people
have. Personally I have always
felt very friendly to both nations.
I feel so now." Advertiser.

HILO HOARDING SCHOOL.
Delegates Say it Will Solve the
Race l'rolilcm in lliuwill.
One of the most interesting
features of the Church convention
held in this city this week was the
showing made in the report of the
Hilo Boarding School. The report
was made Monday, showing a
large attendance. The report
shows nearly a score of Japanese
pupils who are bringing a new in
fluence into the schbol with their
snappy energy and ambition. The
pupils, through a system of repre
sentation, share in the government
of the school. The Hilo Boarding
School is aidiug greatly in the study
of the race problem. Here a num
ber of nationalities are thrown to
gether. Understanding and sym
pathy between the different races
are promoted. Some of the dele
gates expressed themselves as
strongly favoring the Hilo plan as
against the system at the Kameha
meha schools. Hawaiiaus alone
attend Kamehameha, and this was
pronounced by some as a menace
in that it inculcates race hatred.
The Association passed a resolu
tion favoring the creation of a theo
logical .department at the Hilo
Boarding School. The pastors of
Ililo will take turns in giving in
struction. Rev. Curtis E. Shields delivered
a strong address on the Hilo Board
ing School question. He saw great
and considered it a model. He
favored united effort which would
make Hilo the Christian capitol of
the Islands, leaving to Honolulu
