At the meeting of the Board ol Trade
Friday night, the following rctoltitlon
was introduced by Dr. Henry Hayes:
Whereas, The County Act Commission
hlTS submitted to the Governor and the
Legistatmc the draft of n bill to establish
county government in the Territory of

sion whatever for revenues lor the coun
ties, but requires them to obtain appro
printlous from the Legislature for their
Whereas, The right to levy tnxes is the
cardinal principle of self-government,
while to deny this right would give but
the shadow of .self-government without
the substance; be it
Resolved, By the Board of Tiade of
Hilo that we protest against the passage
of a county act that does not give to the
counties the right to collect and disburse
its own revenues; that we demand that
the Legislature shall set aside certain
taxes and other receipts for county
revenues; and that we demand of our
representatives In the Senate nnd House
that they use every effort to secure the
passage of n county net, nnd that they
vote against the adoption of any measure
that denies to the counties the right to
assess, levy and disburse tnxes.
The resolution was referred to the
Committee on Legislation with instruc
lions to give it careful consideration,
together with the proposed county bill
und such other measures providing for
county government as might be intro
duced in the Legislature. It is under
stood that Representative Carl S. Smith
prepared what he calls a simple form of
county bill, covering only two type
written pages, merely providing for the
dividing ofthc Territory into counties,
giving them powers as political organiza
tion He divides the Island of Hawaii
Into two counties. Subsequently Mr.
Smith's purpose is to follow this up with
supplementary bills, creating the county
system in n number of separate bills,
such as providing for supervisors, county
nttomeys, nnd other local officers. Mr.
Smith believes that county government
should be n process of development, in
stead of n sudden transition. In other
words, he thinks the people nre not yet
ready for county government in its en
tirety, but should acquire the system by
n steady, natural growth.
The legislative committee of the Board
of Trade, consisting of J. A. Scott, chair
man, L. A. Andrews nnd E. E. Richards,
will give the question of county govern
ment Immediate consideration and report
at the next regular meeting of the Board
of Trade, at which time the subject will
be discussed at length by the members of
Porto Itlcun Flag.
Among the Mags and colors which de
corated the Hilo Armory at the dedica
tion Wednesday night, was a Porto Rl
can flag. This is the first time the ensign
has ever been seen here, and its appear
ance caused many inquires.
For the benefit of Tridunk readers we
are able to detail some information regard
ing the Porto Rican flag. The flag
used by Company D for decorative pur
poses, is the property of A. E. Minville,
of Olaa. The same flag was raised for
the first time in New York and was un
known In that city before. The ensign
was never adopted by Torto Rico, but
was the proposed flag Intended to be
raised by the country when Porto Rico
threw off the Spanish yoke and became
a republic. The intervention by the
Uuited States disarranged the program,
and the proposed colors were never used,
except as a memento of the Porto Rican
desire for independence.
It was the purpose and desire of Porto
Rico to assist Cuba in her struggle for
liberty, and after obtuining Independ
ence for the Cubans, to pull down the
Spauish flagon Porto Rican soil with the
aid of the Cubans.
The proposed Porto Rican republic
flag is similar in design to the Cuban
flags, but having n different arrangement
of colors. The Cuban flag has a white
star in a red field, with blue and while
stripes. The flag of the proposed Porto
Rican republic is a, white star on a blue
field, with red and white stripes. The
star represents the republic and the
stripes signifies the provinces thereunder.
The flag wns designed by Gouznlo Muriu,
n Porto Ric.111, who was afterwards killed
in the Cuban war fighting for the Cuban
cause. The flag was adopted by the
Porto Rican Revolutionary Club of New
York and had the approval of the repre
sentatives of the Cuban government.
During the Spanish rule of the island
of Porto Rico, a plain red and white flag
was used, principally by coasting sailing
vessels of that country, and was sup
planted by the American flag when the
United Stntesgoveriimeut took possession.

The new Hilo Armory presented 11
beautiful spectacle Wednesday night,
when the doors were thrown open to the
public for the first time nnd the building
formally dedicated. Washington's Birth

Arrangements as nil appropriate occasion
for the formal opening, which wns
attended by a cosmopolitan nnd enthu
The hall was decorated with n profusion
of flags and colors of nil nations. The
walls of the mammoth structure were
completely hidden with bunting, shields,
emblems, nnd conspicuously placed was
a portrait of George Washington nnd
President Roosevelt. The Decoration
Committee, under the supervision of
Sergt. J M. Herring, nre to be compli
mented uyoii the nrtlstic appearance of
the interior. In the centre of the drill
hall was erected a, temporary platform
for the speakeis and orchestra. The floor,
which is hardwood; was waxed nnd
polished for dancing mid soon was over
flowing with light hearted nnd n happy
throng of dnncers. Curvaluo's orchestra
furnished the music, and preliminary to
the ceremonies a patriotic concert was
rendered by the Hilo Baud.,
Hon. C. M. LcBIoud delivered the
address of the evening, taking ns his sub-
ject "George Washington, FiUher of his
Country." Lieut. Win. II. Beers acted
as master of ceremonies nnd introduced
the speaker. Capt. W. A. Fetter and
Lieut. II. Ludloff occupied scats upon
Mr. LeBloud's Address in part is ns
"Mr. Chairman, ladles and gentlemen:
In 1732, one hundred and seventy-three
years ago today there was born in West
moreland Co.Virgiuia, a man whose future
was destined to be one of the brightest
In the civilized world. It is meet nnd
proper that the dedication of this hall
by thehiilltia of this island, should be
upon the nutiiversnry of the birth of that
great statesman, the great warrior, pa.
triot and founder 'of state tuilitrhis
"It was principally through his efforts
that the militia of the United States was
"The first formation of volunteer com
ponies in the United States, which were
then known ns the colonics, wns very
crude in comparison to the splendid
organizations that now exist in uearly
every state and territory. These pioneer
organizations were known by local
names, as they called themselves 'The
Squirrel Hunters.' 'The Boom Tails,'
'The Bearers' and such like designations.
"Then came the formation of that
body of men known generally as 'Muster
men,' who met on certain days in the
year under such officers as they selected
for muster. The object of the organiza
tion was principally for home local pro
tection, and it grew in course of time to
such unity and permanency of organiza
tion, until today the militia of the United
States is as thoroughly equipped nnd
drilled ns the members of the different
regiments of the regular army. So we
have today in the Uuited States such a
system of militia organization, that with-
iu twenty-four hours a large army can be
gathered, sufficient to cope with the
regular army of auy government on
"The members of the militia ore not
serving for hire nor for glory. The only
incentive that keeps them together and
Induces them to withstand the labor of
drill and discipline is that spirit that
arises iu the breast of every loyal Ameri
can patriotism. (Applause.)
"We have in Hilo, we are proud to say,
the best company of militia iu the Terri
tory of Hawaii. (Applause.) Even our
friends of the Capital City, who always
think they have the best of everything,
were compelled to read iu their local
papers, during the recent contest at
Honolulu, that Company D was far
ahead of the other companies of Hi,.
Regiment in excellence of drill and dis
"Let us therefore give credit to whom
credit is due. To Captain Fetter, who iu
1898, became a volunteer member iu the
Honolulu Rifles, was promoted from the
ranks to corporal, sergeant, second nnd
first lieutenant, and who is now Captain
of this splendid organization. rJTe re
ceived these promotions because he left
nothing undone. Company D has risen
to its present high standard of efficiency
becuuse of that same characteristic hich
tins become 11 part of Its organization and
life it leaves nothing undone,
"We are some 5,000 miles from the
seat of government. We are isolated, but
we know that the property of these isl
amis will le protected. We expect this
company to prepare itself, not for the
purposes-of war, but for the purposes of
peace. Nowit becomes the duty of every
citizen of this island to assist iu every
thing looking to employment of members
of Company D and to the Improvement
and support of this patriotic orgnni-
At the close of his remarks, Mr. Le
Blond offered three cheers and a tger
for Company D, which was responded to
lustily by the assembled gathering, The
floor was then given over to the doucers,
who enjoyed themselves until long past
the midnight. "Sergeant' J. D. Easton
