There is little hope or encourage
ment for the prospective home
steader. Other interests are con
sidered paramount to those of the
small farmer, and dispitc the Ex
ecutive's professions of great sol ci
tude for the small farmer, the indi
vidual agriculturist must be rele
gated to the ranks of ( blivion and
his rights, if he has any, ignored.
The difficulties for olvainingjand
arc increased. The law enacted at
the lust legislature makes it man
datory upon the Board of Agricul
ture and Forestry to pass upon the
disposition of any public laud, with
the exception of roads and city lots.
Homestead leaseholds which carry
the right to cut timber must be ap
proved by the Board. It is w.ll
known that the government has no
laud already cleared to ofler home
steaders and hereafter virgin forest
tracts will not be thrown open to
promiscuous clearing. The lower
levels where cane will grow nt 1750
feet elevation have been agreed
upon by the plantations and the
government as the lower boundary
of the proposed forest reserve.
As a matter of fact the govern
ment owns most of the lauds which
are desired to become forest re
serves. The Governor may within
his discretion designate all of the
remaining government land as a
forest reserve. It is admitted that
the best sugar producing lands are
now cleared and taken up, and the
forests that now remain are those
which it is sought to have set aside
as a reserve.

Hoarding School Exercises.
An attractive program was provided
bv the students for those who attended
the Christmas exercises of the Hilo
Boarding School, last Thursday night.
The occasion was the end of the term
and each class of the School wns given
an opportunity to take part Itself. The
choruses and solos were especially well
rendered and in turn various sleeted
students, in a recitation told how Christ
mas was observed in Germany, Norway,
Sweden, Russia, England and by the
nations of the World. Some of the Ha
waiian and Japanese students excelled ill
declamation and displayed the result of
painstaking Instruction in thiseducational
institution. Principal Levy C. I.ytnnti
presided and Miss Kalherine Westvelt
assisted as pianist. Kcv. S. h. Desha
gave n brief talk to the boys in Hawaiian
which was well received and contained
much sage nud fatherly advice.
Tiikkk is no law compelling the
holding of the hearing tj :onsider
setting aside forest reserves else
where than at Honolulu, or requir
ing that the hearings shall be held
within the district in which the
lands arc situate. If anyone de
sires to be heard on the subject they
can journey to Honolulu to attend
the hearings upon these matters,
which will be held before Governor
Carter and the Forestry Board.
The Governor is at liberty under
the law to hold the hearings in a
remote part of the islands far re
moved from the proposed forest reserve.
Just to show to what extremes a
man with an axe to grind will go,
the Republican District Committee
were misled into making an en
dorsement for postmaster when the
editor of a local paper assured the
committee that the party referred
to had been recommended by the
Board of Trade Council. The lat
ter body were prevailed upon to
take similar action upon represen
tations of the same individual that
the District Committee had already
expressed its approval for this can
didate, when neither organization
had done so. Thus doth a man
with a well defined purpose succeed.
New Auto Car Arrives.
J. Alexander, station agent at Kecau,
received by the Ship Falls of Clyde last
week a new automobile, which will make
another added to the list of entries in
Admiral Beckley's auto parade on New

He claims it is especially adapted to hill
climbing and hopes to make much use of
it over the islands roads.
Work on Illlo Scnrr.
Work has begun on the Hilo sewer by
Contractor Whitehouse, nud n gauj: of
laborers are excavating n trench on front
street from Turner's corner to the Wal
luku river. The line is almost parallel
with the storm sewer and the outlets arc
not a hundred feet npart. The reason for
the construction of the new section, in
stead of uulliziug the storm drain is be
cause of tho lower grade of the sewerage
system. The sewer intcri-ects nt one
point the storm sewer, but will not empty
into it. Knginecr Gere believes there

His anticipated arrival was announced
by n voluminous letter rend aloud to the
school by Mrs. W. S. Terry, which wns
postmarked "Toylnnd, next door to the
land of Nod" nnd bore the slgunturc and
seal of Old Nick himself,. Later that
gentleman bounded in with n rousing
whoop and bubbling over with laughter.
He was bedecked in n bright red jacket
nnd cap, covered with snow. He greeted
each little youngster in turn, kissing

red apple here nnd there, He announced
he had just dropped down from the
clouds through the telephone wires nud

daybreak. His presence caused great
excitement among the little folk nnd will
ever remain n pleasant memory.
I'our little timid tots recited a greeting
of welcome, which received hearty ap
plause. The rock-a-by chorus by the
primary class was pretty nud effective.
Harry Mu in by distinguished himself by
reciting "When Christmas Comes," ntul
later his sister, Alice Alumuy, won n
round of admiration by giving n Christ

In thk interest of higher educa
tion, there is being undertaken un
der the supervision of Principal
Deyo in Hilo a rudimentary high
school. The stait has been made
and the class of pupils now pursu
ing the high s-chool course attests
to the success of the venture. With
out a specific appropriation, how
ever, for a high school building the
work can only be limited in its
scope. Until such legislative assist

proposition ably and in a business

Dispute Over Livestock.
Aboard the Palls of Clyde there were
twenty-five head of mules shipped by G.
S. McKenzie of Napa, Cal. to the Ookala
Sugar Co. It appears that McKenzie,
who wns formerly connected with the
Volcano Stables & Transportation Co., is
indebted to that corporation, and upon
arrival of the vessel attachment proceed
ings were commenced by the Stables for
the sum of $1,000. Sheriff Andrews took
possession and refused to deliver the
animals to the Ookala Co. until Manager
W. G. Walker showed that the mules
were the property of the plantation, hav
lug already paid to McKenzie the pur
chase price of the live stock.
Illlo lire Department.
In addition to the new equipment of
i.ooo feet of hose and two nozzles, the
Hilo I'ire Department received by the
Ship Palls of Clyde which arrived
Thursday ten fire plugs. This is part
of the appropriation accorded to the
Pirc Department by the last legislature.
These hydrants will be placed by Pore
man Win. Todd nt points where there
ore no plugs in the water mains. The
Waiakca water front is especially ex
posed to datigcr from fire, audit is the
intention to locate several in the most
accessible and serviceable places there.
The Puueo water system has not been
taken over by the Territorial govern
ment, and until then no hydrants can tie
installed, in that residence section of the
town. It is understood that the Hilo
Sugar Company are willing to turn over
the pipes and resevoirs. They find the
upkeep of the water system is greater
than the revenue derived from residents
using the water. The Piremaii's Hall
has been raised nud new bills put in and
the painters are now busy repainting the
building, all of which was provided for
by the last legislature. Provision was also
made for a combination chemical engine
nud hook and ladder truck, but this
item has yet not been nllowed by the
Lady Mnsonn Elect Olllcers.

favorable that our buyer laid
