When the last batch of news came
from Honolulu the Hilo Sufferer
rushed to the long distance telephone
and gave the crunk a vigorous turn:
"Hello Central; give me Governor
Carter's office," he said.
"Hello," said Governor Carter,
"The Sufferer at Hilo."
"Glad to find you nre able to
talk; what's the trouble now?"
"Is it true Governor that you
fired Andy Brown?" said the Suf
ferer. "Yes that's straight," said the
"And what did you put Andy
out for," inquired the Sufferer.
"I nm responsible in a way for
the integrity of this administra
tion," replied the Governor.
"Heads of bureaus must be respon
sible for their respective depart
ments. Laxncss on their part in
office methods aud in choice of sub
ordinates fosters carelessness, which
leads to defalcation aud scandal I
will have none of it. Is that all?"
said the Governor.
"It is not all," said the Sufferer,
"I want to congratulate you for the
stand you take as to Honolulu de
partments, and ask if your benign
jurisdiction does not extend over
all the Hawaiis, even unto Hilo?"
"I think you are right," said the,
Governor, "I think I'm supposed
to be governor of the whole territory."
"Well," said the Suuerer, "you
know of the shortages in the Hilo
police department don't you Gover
nor." "Yes. yes, I know, but "
"Well, you know how Sheriff
Andrews manages it when he finds
a leak, don't you?"
"You know he's a lhard discipli
narian, is this Sheriff Andrews. A
subordinate defalcates; he fires him;
makes him mortgage his property
to recompense the government;
then restores the defalcator to his
job. Then after that the defalca
tions are much smaller, vcrv much
smaller indeed. You know about
it, don't you Governor."
"Yes, yes, I know, but "
"Well, I was just thinking you
should transfer Andrews to Hono
lulu aud let him get in his fine dis
ciplinarian work on your Honolulu
employees who are careless with
the cash. When he's through with
them, they will still be public ser
vants, but they won't steal anything
like as much as they did before his
drastic policy of firing and hiring
over again was applied."
"What's this,?" said the Gover
nor, "You tell me that Andrews
keeps men in office under him whom
he knows have done crooked work?"
"That's worse than Andy Brown.
Andy thought his boys were
straight. I fired him for not know
ing they were straight. Now what
to do with a man who knmvs his
subordinates are crooked is past me.
I shall discuss this matter with my
"Be careful whose advice you
take, Governor Carter. There's a
lot of spurious stuff being passed
up to you every day. For instance
J you remember the fellow who told
I you that Andrews was not respon
sible for the Porto Rican thumb
stringing episode in the Hilo jail?
Andrews was responsible. He
I claimed the honor in an interview
j in n Hilo paper at the time. Later,
i when an investigation was ordered
from Washington, Andrewsand his
j gang In Hilo fastened the blame
i upon a subordinate. Of course,

1 things and have enough to do with
out trying to maintain law and
order and justice in Hilo, so-I'll

It was not wholly for the benefit
of the kindergarten. The kinder
garten fund var, swelled to the tunc
of about $70; but that was not the
whole benefit. The some one hun
dred odd guests who assembled in
the parlors at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. A. Scott at Wainaku, felt
that the affair was a benefit for
themselves. The Knoch Arden con
cert is what is being talked about. It
was given by the ladies of the Kin
dergarten to raise money to buy
more chairs for the little folks, who
through the Hilo Free Kindergar
ten find a free highway to their A
The entertainment was a com
bined recital and musicalc, consist
ing of one number. The music was
piano accompaniment to the reading
of Enoch Arden one of Tennyson's
best known poems The music was
composed and arranged by Richard
Strauss. As rendered by Miss
Caroline Potter last Friday night,
the notes of the musician blended
in fine sympathy with the words of
the great poet, pronounced so ef
fectively by Mrs. A. G. Curtis.
Strauss renders the poem in music
along three main motives, one for
each of the principal characters.
The scenes brought out by the poet
find new expression in the language
of the musiciau. The poet leaves
one face to face with heartbreaking
tragedies: the musician's notes
come like soft airs across a burnt
city restoring with its magic the
crumbled palaces of the soul.
The musician has not tried to
eclipse the poet, or if so, has failed.
He could have played above the
poet's plot .with his melody of joy
aud despair, causing persons and
places to disappear, leading his
auditors to where fate aud destiny,
joy and grief, hope and despair
contend in the abstract the place
where music holds undisputed
reign. As it was presented, there
are many who will find the music
detracts from the reading and the
reading from the music. The com
poser would have produced a better
effect by giving longer alternating
periods of music. Or an audience
would be more certainly carried
away and restored again gently to
earth if at the close of the leading,
the piano could break into a bold
imaginative resume of the pathetic
Mrs. Scott's parlors would ac
commodate only one hundred spec
tators, so the tickets were limited.
The chairs were nearly all filled by
appreciative listeners and many a
furtive tear paid tribute to the ex
cellence of the rendition by Miss
Potter aud Mrs. Curtis.

Llirlit House .Man Says Blow Our
J. P. Slattery, of Honolulu, en
gineer for the Light house district
comprising the Hawaiian Islands,
was in Hilo Sunday. Mr. Slattery
is making a tour of this Island in
specting light houses and selecting
sites for new ones. Captain Niblack
made a similar tour a few weeks
ago, and from the combined recom
mendations of the two officials, the
plans of the Light house Board will
Mr. Slattery was greatly inter
ested in Hilo. He expressed the
opinion that Hilo lacked organiza
tion and when told that an organ
ization was in process of formation
to look after the general interests of
the city, he said that it was only
through such means that a city can
progress. He believes that Hilo
does not make half enough noise
about her needs. He considers
many of her demands just and that
energetic and combined effort will
see them complied with. He
thought that a city with the re
sources of Hilo and surrounding
districts could well afford to keep a
representative in Washington du
ring sessions of Congress.

The Board of Trade of Hilo was
the name adopted last Saturday
night by a mass meeting of citizens,
met to organize for the upbuilding
of the city. The attendance was
larger aud the interest more en
thusiastic than at the previous
meeting. The report of the com
mittee on rules and regulations was
made, aud in the discussion of the
various proposals the gentlemen
present showed a lively interest and
under the discussion that took place
the working plan of the organiza
tion assumed definite form.
The committee, which consisted
of Messrs. P. Peck, C. E. Wright,
B. F. Schocn, Dr. Hayes and W.
H. Lambert, submitted a constitu
tion and by-laws which were in the
main satisfactory to all present.
These were considered section by
section and minor alterations sug
gested and adopted. The constitu
tion and by-laws will come up for
adoption as a whole at a meeting
tomorrow night at Fireman's hall.
Election of officers will J also proba
bly take place.
The general plan of organization
provides for a set of permanent
working committees. There are
seven of these. They will have
charge of work in different avenues
all tending to promote the increase
of Hilo's importance' and trade.
There are to be committees on
Transportation, Varied Industries,
Legislation, Federal and Territorial,
Advertising and Promotion, Public
Works, etc. The chairmen of
these committees, together with the
general officers of the association
will compose an executive council
of thirteen members. This, is the
main directing power of the organ
ization aud through it the various
committees will present their recom
mendations and conclusions to the
general body. .
The plan makes it possible for
every citizen to have a careful hear
ing on any subject for the further
ance of the interests of Hilo and to
have that subject taken up by the
proper committee aud pressed upon
the executive council.
The meeting tomorrow night will
be an important one, every Hilo
citizen should be present.
