The growth of a village into a
town or a town Into a city, does not
mean the wiping out of all vestiges
of shade trees along sidevulk9 and
streets. In extending streets, those
officials in charge appear to have
only one view in mind, that streets
us jinked and barren as might be
found in the slums of N vv Yotk or
ns the treeless wastes of San Fran

The utilitarian raUeS objection
that rain dripping from overhang
ing shade trees along street lines
spoils macadam roadways. This is
not borne out by facts or experience,
for moisture conserves the top dress
ing of paved streets, while a dry
spell will result in a street being
veritably turned up-side-down.
This is the experience in Hilo and
Trees do interfere with telephone
and electric light wires, but a com
munity's interest should not be
made subservient to corporation
greed. In a tropical city like Hilo,
where trees atid vegetation thrive
with little or no care, an early start
in street adornment should be made
There is no excuse for a failure to
provide shade trees along streets

The very illusive explanation of
the coffee shop editor why he con
tinues his hammering, shows the
cloudiness of the atmosphere in
which he lives. If there is one ac
complishment which he possesses
to an abnormal degree, it is that of
calling names. Abuse is the weapon
of the rowdy, the coward and the
thug. A man devoid of ideas or
sincere motives usually adopts such
arguments, aud it is an old maxim
that the dog with the loudest dark
is the greatest coward. To prove
one's courage by calling silly names
is the height ofasininity and brands
the brawler what he is. Such con
duct is neither dignified nor cal
culated to inspire respect for him

Lambert for Position.
The action ol the Hoard of Trailc at a
special meeting held Thursday night,
puts a ill Acre nt aipcct oil the postmaster,
ship situation. There was a representa
tive crowd of members gathered In the
Fireman's Hall In response to the call of
the president. Mr. Holmes stated the
putposc of the meeting, which was to
consider the matter of recommending a
suitable person for Doatmnstcr to succeed
Postmaster Madeira, who hat been pro
It was announced that upon represen
tations that the Republican District Com
mittee and Young Men's Republican
Club had endorsed Norman K. Lyman,
the Executive Council hnd recom
mended hilii for the place. Upon motion
of E. E. Richards, seconded by L Turner,
the full meeting resolved not to ratify
the action of the Executive Council, but
by unanimous vote recommended V. II.
Lambert for the prospective vacancy.
In support of his motion, Mr. Richards
said In part: "My reason for making
this motion Is that this town Is fast being
depopulated of white citizens, mid we
want to do everything In our power to
keep good citizens in our midst. Here is
an opportunity of keeping a valuable man
in Hilo, who otherwise will have to go
elsewhere. Mr. Lambert Is an excellent
man. He Is capable, efficient and would
make a good postmaster. He has held u
position of responsibility in the comtnun
Ity anil has at heart the best interests of
the town. We should do something to
stop this exodus of white population. It
is up to those of us who expect to remain
here to do our utmost to keep good men
in the town. We should buy our goods
here and from our local tradesmen. We
want to employ only citizcu labor aud
white mechanics. It matters not how
small a job may be, we cannot afford to
take bread and butter from a white mail
by patronizing Asiatics. If we will pur
sue this policy persistently aud consis
tently, we will succeed in helping each
other us well as the community at large.
Now is the opportunity."
Doth Mr. Richards aud Mr. Turner
who followed him, expressed the greatest
respect for Mr. Lyman's abilitvy integrity
and character, but felt that at such a
business crisis, the young man who al
ready holds n remunerative position in
the Sheriff's Office, should step aside for
a man whose absence from the community
would mean a loss. R. T. Guard spoke
in the same vein, Intimating that he
thought It would be an injustice to the
young man, to put Mr. Lyman in the
postoflice. Dr. Hayes on behalf of the
Executive Council explained the reason
for that body's action, which he said was
amenable to the will of the larger body.
R. A. Lyman, Jr., who was present
spoke on behalf of his brother and ex
plained why Norman Lyman had applied.
"It was at the earnest solicitation of cer
tain members of the Hoard of Trade that
my brothei put in his application. He
was not pushed for the place by the
Young Men's RepubFcan Club, as this Is
a matter that the Club holds docs not
come within either their jurisdiction or
that of the District Committee. National
Committeeman Robertson has advised us
that the rules of the republican party do
not provide for endorsements for federal
positions, but if we desired to take action
he would be glad to do what he could.
So, when Mr. Desha withdrew Mr. Siem-
sen's name, there was only one candidate
left, that of Norman K. Lyman to endorse,
whom they have recommended."
Mr. W. II. Lambert, who had received
the endorsement of the Iloord of Trade,
after the passage of the resolution arose
and said: "I have not words to express !

A. Alirens, lately of Oahu Plantation,
who with his family is a guct of Mrs.
Jutes Richardson, at Reed's Hay, was a
general favorite among the Japanese
plantation laborers. The Hawaii Shinpo,

Honolulu, bays: ExMauagcr Alirens was
given u grand seml-ofT when he left Oahu
plantation. Tliejapane.se laborers saw
him go only with the greatest regret, for
he N known to them as u fairminded
manager, whose treatment of them has
always been considerate and kind.
"Like a light taken away in the dark
night," is the poetic way in which some
laborers describe his departure. The
ex-innimger has gone to h'Ii where his
family went a bliort time ago.
