HILO BOARD OF TRADE
REELECT OLD OFFICERS.
President Holmes Makes Annual Report The Good
Accomplished by the Body During the Year An
Important Factor in the Development of Hilo and
Island of Hawaii Officers Chosen.
The Hilo Board of Trade has
rounded out a year's successful
work, and on last Friday night
after listening to the reports of the
President E. N. Holmes, Secretary
H. Vicars and Treasurer C. A
Stobie, the officers for the ensuing
vear were chosen. The work of
the officers for the past year hns
been so efficient and satisfactory,
that they were unanimously re
elected, without any apparent op
A change in the by-laws was
made by the adoption of an amend
ment offered by Dr. J.' Holland,
the object of which was to dispense
with a corresponding secretary, the
duties of which office had been per
formed heretofore by Secretary
Vicars. The two offices will here
after be combined, and in order to
supply the deficiency on the Execu
tive Council, an additional member
was provided, making that body
consist of eight members together
with the officers of the Board of
President Holmes presented a
written report reviewing the year's
work of the Board and Executive
Council, which was closely followed
by the members and warmly ap
plauded at the close of its reading.
His report is as follows:
Gentlemen: This association
was organized in March 1904 for
the purpose of promoting the gene
ral welfare of Hilo and of the ad
jacent district. This was to be done
bv discussing the questions of
public improvements, and by
putting forth before the authorities
and agitating in a persistent and
intelligent manner our needs and
Opportunities for discussion have
been taken advantage of by the
members at the ten meetings held
since organization with good effect,
and the Executive Council whose
duty it is to carry out the wishes of
the main body and to deal with
matteis arising between the re
gular meetings of the Board, have
been assiduous in their duties. The
Council hns held, since the organi
zation, thirty-one meetings, and
perhaps a majority of the members
have not missed a meeting.
While members will no doubt
admit that considerable benefit has
been derived from the work of the
Board, I will refer to some of the
matters that have been taken up.
One of the first matters taken up
was renewing the woodwork of the
bridge at Riverside. This bridge
was in a most dilapidated condition
and was scarcely safe for pedestrians.
After some correspondence with the
Superintendent of Public Works,
he gave instructions for renovating
the bridge, and later got a deed
from the owner, so that now the
bridge is owned by the Government
and is kept in repair by the local
Need was felt for a map showing
the Government lands in the town
and the terms of years for which
they were under le.tse, so that the
public might have access to it.
The survey department was pre
vailed upon to supply such a map
which is to be found in the Board
of Trade Rooms.
One of the most vital questions
to the prosperity of the town of
Hilo was providing for means
whereby the sanitary conditions of
the place could be strictly attended
to. The Government had reduced
the salaries of their medical men to
such a figure that none but a
wealthy philanthropist could con
sider the proposition. As the care
of prisoners, the indigent sick and
the keeping of the port in a sanitary
condition was an essential matter, a
sub-committee of the Board of
Tradi; was appointed to raise the
necessary means for paying n rens-
ouable salary to a physician and
satntary inspector. Arrangements
were made whereby a tax on im
ports is levied and the proceeds go
towards maintaining the town in a
clean mid healthy condition.
Some inertia having been dis
played by the Public Works De
partment in the matter of expend
ing the appropriation of $16,000 for
a new jail, and also the appropria
tion of $10,000 on the sewerage
system for Hilo, the Executive
Council made a vigorous appeal for
immediate action. A good deal of
correspondence ensued on the mat
ter, lectures on engineering were
delivered, diversity of opinions were
expressed in almost forcible lan
guage, wireless, messages were ex
changed, until finally the Board
and the Department came to an un
derstanding, and the sewer work
for Hilo was- started. Instructions
have also been given for condemna
tion proceedings to acquire the land
selected by the Council as a suita
ble site for a new jail.
The approach to the new Wai
lukti bridge remained impassable
for some time, and perhaps we
would not now have such a good
thoroughfare at this point had it
not been for the forcing ot the mat
ter first by an individual member
undertaking to do some of the work
gratis and later by the Board request
ing the Sheriff to put prisoners on
The Council's fruitful action on
Mooheau Park and pavilion is of
too recent date to require more than
mention. To show the Board's ap
preciation of Admiral Beckley's
gift an engrossed address was or
dered and paid for out of the Board's
funds. There still remains a debt
on this pavilion account amounting
to$i36o,77; this amount was raised
by the Executive Council, as in
structed by the Board, in order to
settle with the contractor. It is
expected that the next Legislature
will appropriate a sufficient sum to
repay this amount and further im
prove the park.
Arrangements have been made
whereby seven acres of laud at
Rainbow Falls will be turned over
to the public for park purposes.
A Park Committee nominated by
the Board has been appointed by
theStiperintendentof Public Works;
thiscommitteepractically has charge
of the care and improvement of our
Some mouths ago when the
comity act commission were delibe
rating in Honolulu, a committee of
the Board prepared an exhaustive
report on the subject, and submitted
it to the commissioners. The Council
deeming this a valuable compilation
of statistics and other information,
ordered the same printed in pamph
let form for future use.
What appeared to be an irregular
and unjust transaction in the laud
department of the government was
investigated by the executive coun
cil. I refer to the Eugene II. Iv
man land deal. This matter has
been so well investigated by the de
partment that a recurrence is not
likely under the present administra
tion. The assistant agent of the U. S.
experiment station called upon the
Board for financial assistance in the
matter of tilling land near Hilo for
the experimenting in raising ba
nanas and other products; the as
sistance was rendered.
Believing that hardships were
about tobe imposed on homesteaders
by the attitude taken by the gov
ernment regarding the homestead
laud laws the executive council took
the matter up with homesteaders,
and as a result of their investiga
tions have prepared and submitted
to the Governor of the Territory a
lengthy report of their findings,
When the Acting Governor was
I pieparing his annual report are-
quest was made of the Hoard of
Trade for particulars of the Federal
needs of this island. A detailed
statement of our requirements was
submitted; this statement has been
read here and published in the news
papers, and no doubt has been read
by the several members of the Board.
The proposed extension of Bridge
street is a matter that is now re
ceiving the attention of the Board,
and it is thought that this work
will be proceeded with in the near
I believe I have mentioned the
more important transactions of the
Board of Trade and I trust the re
sult of our labors will prompt all
members to continue to give to out
organization the support it has re
ceived in the past and thereby assist
in the advancement of the town and
adjacent district the aim of the or
ganization. Yours respectfully,
E. N. Holmks,
Treasurer C. A. Stobie made a
report of the financial standing of
the Board, which was as follows;
Membership fees mill dues $ 554-75
Donation of Admiral Iteckley.... 1,000.00
Loan, First Hank of Hilo 1,360,77
Mooheau Hnll $2,360.77

President Holmes then announced
the election of officers for the next
year. Upon motion of J. W.
Mason, Mr. Holmes the present in
cumbent was unanimously elected
President, over the protest of that
individual, who expressed his de
sire to see some other man enjoy
the honor. He said he was willing
to serve for another term, if it were
the will of the majority of the Board
of Trade, but he did not seek the
honor and would prefer to retire.
By unanimous vote, the secretary
was instructed to cast the ballot for
Mr. Holmes as president, which he
did. Each of the old officers in
turn were unanimously re-elected,
and the Board proceeded to select
an Executive Council of eight mem
bers in addition to the officers
named. After numerous nomina
tions and a ballot taken, the result
showed the tally to be, Dr. Hayes,
40; Adam Lindsay, 37; J. A.Scott,
37; C. E. Wright, 36; F. Brughelli,
32; A. Humburg, 31; E. E.
Richards, 30; I. Turner, 25; L. A.
Andrews, 23; Chas. Furneaux, 13;
E. H. Austin, 10; W. H. Lambert,
8; J. Vierra, 4, and scattering 7.
The Board of Trade officers for
the ensuing year are therefore as
President, E. N. Holmes.
First Vice President, J. W. Mason.
Second Vice President, Dr. T.
Treasurer, C. A. Stobie.
Secretary, H. Vicars.
Executive Council Dr. H. Hayes,
Adam Lindsay, J. A. Scott, C. E.
Wright, F. Brughelli, A. Humburg,
E. E. Richards, L. Turner.
Chairman Richards of the Park
Board said he would like to have
suggestions trom tnc uoaru in re
gard to providing curtains or glass
windows for the protection of the
floor.of Mooheau Hall from rain
and hc elements. It was stated
that the cost of canvass curtains
would be about $200 and glass win
dows $700. Dr. Holland, who is
also a member of the Park Board
spoke at lsngth on the necessity of
providing shelter against storms,
and gave his opinion that curtains
were the least expensive and would
last eight or nine years. I,. Turner
favored glass windows, which would
be of a permanent character. The
matter was finally referred to the
Park Board for whatever action
they deemed proper, J. A. Scott
expressing the general opinion of
the meeting that whatever addi
tional money was spent, ought to
be expended in beautifying the
Park with shrubbery, trees and
grass, which was sadly needed at
the present time.
F. Brughelli said he believed it
proper for the Board of
Trade to give an expression of)
opinion regarding the reduction of
grade at Honolii hill 011 the Haka
lau road, between Pepeekeo and
Papaikou, which at present caused
a needless expense of energy by
hauling teams in overcoming the
steep incline at this point. Mr.
Scott approved of the proposition
and also suggested that the new
concrete nrches being put in nlong
the government road should here
after be forty feet or the width of
the road, instead of twenty feet
wide, which barely permitted teams
to pass each other. Both recom
mendations will be forwarded to
the Superintendent of Public
Works, at Honolulu.

The world has never perhaps be
held such a combination of incon
gruous elements as the Russian
empire presents today. The edu
cated classes include some of the
best informed and of the most high
ly polished men and women 111
Europe, many of whom openly ex
press ideas of an advanced liberal
type. They include also an in
tellectual proletariat which has em
braced, with all the ardor of the
Slav nature, the wildest and most
dangerous theories of French and
German socialists. These men have
the tastes and the ambitions which
education brings, with no reason
able prospect of gratifying either.
Beneath is the dumb peasant order
permeated here and there with the
new ideas-which the villagers who
have migrated to the newly esta
blished manufactuing center or who
have come into contact with the
army bring home with them. Over
all, Uie bureaucracy and the police
exercise what is too often in prac
tice an irresponsible sway. The
church in her own sphere is as in
tolerant and as unenlightened as
the state. Most omnious of all, the
economic conditions of nobles, of
manufacturers and artisans and of
the agricultural masses appear to
be becoming more and more
grevious. I lie most eniignteneci
men of the empire deplore the evils
they daily witness and recognize
that profound constitutional reforms
are indispensable to remedy them.
Yet they are acutely conscious of
the dangers which such reforms
must almost necessarily bring, and
they have so far failed to devise any
known project which promises to
effect the transition from the half
oriental, half medieval state which
Russia now is to conditions es
sential for the development of
modern life and civilization.
An Appropriate and LMciisinjr
Certainly there is no gift which
is warranted to keep new all the
year in the same way that the hand
inscribed calendar is. To make
this calendar it is first essential that
365 slips of paper be cut of a uni
form size three inches wide by
four inches long is a fair measure
ment and then, after having an
inked line drawn across ope inch
from the top edge, they are ready
The space above the .line is re
served for the date, which may be
added last, just before the slips are
mounted into a block and cemented
at both sides, so that the owner
may not anticipate the contents of
the various leaves.
The leaves are sent about to the
various friends of the one for whom
the calendar is intended, and each
is invited to inscribe a leaf with an
appropriate sentiment, either origi
al or quoted, but in' the person's
own handwritting. As may be
seen, there are daily surprises all
during the year for the recipient.
