"Well, Professor," said tlie newsman to

Wednesday evening ns lie strolled up

Anything new?" said the Professor.
"Well, I should smile! nnything doing?

The praise service given in the First
Poreign Church Inst Sunday evening at
tracted n very Inrge congregation, and
reflects the greatest credit upon Mrs.
Jarrctt T. Lewis, under whose direction
the services were held. The church was
profusely decorated with llllies, ferns and
flowers iu great variety, tastefully ar
ranged nud presenting a spectacle of gor
geous coloring pleasing to the eye, nud
soul-satisfying to members of the Deco
rating Committee, who arc to be congrat
ulated upon the success of their efforts.
Mrs. Lewis ns nu organist nud musical
director is without n peer iu the Territory
of Hawaii, nud the successful rendering
of the various anthems by the choir and
other musical numbers was due to her
patient and painstaking tuition. Vocal
solo9 by Mr. C. N. Prouly nud Miss Lili
110c Hnpni were greatly enjoyed, ns were
nlso the selections rendered by the string
quartette, n somewhat unusual feature in
the church work of this district.
The following is the full program:
mendacious vanoriucs of those
whose highest aim appears to be
that of catching the nimble dollar
as it flies, and whose lack of con
science enables them to ride rough
shod over friend and foe alike in
their eagerness to acquire social
prominence or political power.
Nevertheless, while honestly en
deavoring to keep the pages of the
Tribune free from the taint of
jealousy and the filth generated by
petty spite and spleen; whenever or
wherever we discover a flagrant
breach of trust, or trustworthy evi
dences of corruption, dishonesty
and rascalitv on the part of those
whose suavity of manner has gained
for them a certain degree of public
confidence, we hope through the
Tribune to place "A whip in every
honest hand to whip such rascals
naked through the land."
Notwithstanding a deep sense
of gratitude to our friends for their
expressions of kindly good will to
wards us and of their confidence in
our ability to make a goodly show
ing in the journalistic tournament,
we deprecate somewhat the loud
fanfare of trumpets whereby the
Herald announces our entrance into
the lists. In the joustings and tilt
ings of the past we are not aware
that we ever thrust so sharply or so
keenly as to pierce the mailed ar
mor of our antagonist with intent
to inflict painful injuries mental
or otherwise. Neither do we be
lieve thut our little chansoiiades,
roulades and other evidences of "oott
camaraderie" are calculated to cre
ate within the breast of Madam Pele
such an ecstacy of joy over our pro
motion to the Tribune's "uneasy
chair that she will dance iu such
manner as is liable to change the
topography of Hawaii, thereby
transforming our little paradise into
an inferno of "roasts" without romanticism.
Dr. Cooi'UR's resignation as
President of the Hoard of Health
will not fall as a great surprise
upon this community. While we
have the utmost faith in the ability
of our chief executive to restore to
a semblance of order the chaotic
finances of this Territory, we earn
estly believe that the administration
is committing a grave blunder in en
deavoring to build up the funds by
reducing the official staff of the
Board of Health. Conscientious
government physicians and a staff
of energetic sanitary inspectors are
absolutely necessary to secure the
well-being and good health of peo
ple living in tropic climes, and any
interference that tends to weaken
the efficiency of the health officers
will prove disastrous in its results
and work incalculable harm to the
how stringent times were in Hilo, and
how blue our merchants were feeling over
the fact that every vessel leaving port
carries its full complement of passengers,
nud, in some instances, were compelled to
refuse passage through lack of accommo
dations, but the only consolation I got
wns a quiet grin nud a 'don't get down iu
the mouth, old man;' things will work
round your way sometime but we must
keep the bnud. fly the Gods, yes! Let
Honolulu keep her dod-gasted band. Hut
if this administration of ours, that ap
pears to be so hot foot on retrenchment
and reform, doesn't sec to it that there is
something like an equal divi of the coin
1 available and give our folks iu Hilo a
chance to live it will find a 'band' nt its
doors that will produce more discords
than Merger ever dreamt of since the
Hawaiian Hand was first organized. Oh,
yes! Cut the school tench rs' little salary
in half but keep the band. The Hoard
of Health is composed of a lazy crowd of
medicos, who do nothing but gabble and
talk, nud pay nn army of sanitary inspec
tors, who never inspect. Turn 'cm out!
shut ofl" their supplies, but for God's sake
'keep the band.' Hridgcs may fall, nud
merchants may fail, and the white popu
lation be depicted one-half what does it
matter so long as they carry away with
them the soul-satisfying music of the
Hawaiian Hand? What's the use of keep
ing up a military organization to protect
and defend our beautiful paradise from
the strong nrm of an invading foe, to
guard our vested interests and our daily
increasing stock of dishonored Treasury
warrants if we can't have n band to lead
'em? Iu the name of all that's ridiculous
let Honolulu 'keep the band.' "
Fourth Precinct Is Again In Hands
of Designing Politicians.
Quite a breezy meeting of the above
club was held at Fireman's Hall last
Wednesday evening, and the coup de etat
of the Young Men's Republican Club in
capturing that meeting showed the master
hand of a practical politiciau. None
other than a Napoleau iu the art of ma
nipulation and machine politics could
have marshalled his forces so well. It
now remains to be seen whether this or
ganization of young Hawaiiaus and sons
of the soil will allow themselves, under
the leadership of a discredited Home
Ruler and renegade from the Republican
party, to precipitate n factional feeling iu
the Republican ranks, ns such tactics ns
were pursued Wednesday night are likely

The special services held at the Halli
Church on Easter Sunday morning were
attended by n very large congregation
and, from n musical standpoint, were
equal to any service of song ever rendered
in that church. Solos by W.J. Kalaina
nud Mrs. C. II. Siemsen were admirably
sung, many of those present being moved
to tears by the tender pathos of the old,
old story of Christ's love and compas
sion as set forth iu the divine melody and
sweet vocalization of Mrs. Siemsen, and
the excellent choir connected with the
Hail! Church. Under the leadership of
Mr. Kalaina, with Miss Sarah Lyman as
organist, the musical portion of the Eas
ter service proved most attractive.

Some weeks ago when the Young
Men's Republican Club was started
iu Hilo,- it was understood the club
was formed for the purpose of bring
ing theyounger Hawaiiaus through
out this Representative District into '
the ranks of the Republican Party
Its purpose was primarily to educate ,
the Hawaiian voters nud instill iu
them the fundamental principals of
republicanism. It was not expect
ed that this organization which I
started with a most laudable and
praiseworthy purpose, would de-,
generate into a "machine" move
ment to carry out the dictates of
one or more individuals or to form
a cloak under which certain persons
who have lost caste iu republican
ranks might hide. It is against
the principles of the Territorial
republican organization that there
should be separate clubs or organiza
tions in the various precincts, who
may come into a precinct club meet
ing with a slate and by means of a
packed house cairy through their
machinations. Such machine tac
tics are reprehensible, ami ought to
awaken every fair minded and loyal
republican to the necessity of ex
pressing disapproval of such, con
duct. Let this new Club, if it be
republican, be iu the nature of an
educational move for Hawaiiaus
only and to which no haolcs need
