Holmes in that city on Wednesday,
March 1st, was a great shock to his fa

ceased in Hawaii. The late Mr. Holmes
has suffered from pulmonary trouble for
some time past and about a year ago had
so serious a hemorrhage as to make a
change of climate urgent. Recent letters
received from him indicated an inprove
ment for the better, and his sudden death
was unexpected.'' Born at Stowe, Ver
mont, Sept. 3. 1848, he went with his
parents when eight years of age to Wis
cousin, where he received his early
training. His first business venture was
as a contractor in the building of the
Northern Pacific Railroad through Min
nesota. Later and for several years be
fore coming to the Islands, he engaged
in the mining business in Nevada. He
lias been a merchant in Hllo and Honokaa
for twenty four years. He died at the
home ol his sister at Coronado. He was
a Mason, being a member of Lodge
no. 32, Plesaut Greve, Minn., and was

Possibilities of Trndo in ThU Island
A tetter has been received by the Board
of Trade frnn Fischer & Michel), of Flor
ence. Italy, enclosing n sample of bamboo,
presumably from the Hawaiian Islands,
and asking nt what price split bamlioo
suitable for hat making or weaving could
be obtained in large quantities. The firm
are hat manufacturers nud write thnt they
nre particularly pleased with the. quallty-
of the sample inclosed, and if a suitable
price can be agreed upon, they could
make use of a large quantity of this raw.
material. They desire the bamboo ma
terial in the lightest quality, In its origi
nal color and not bleached by the sun or
artificial means. The Committee on
Varied Industries, of which Mr. Turner
is chairman, who have been investigating
the subject, report that Hawaiian split
bamboo can be furnished in nny quantity
desired, but there will be no great amount
immediately available before October, as
the young shoots are not ready for cut
ting before that time. The strips nre all
prepared by hand, mostly by natives for
use in making mats, hats, fans and sofa
cushions. It is stated that because of the
difference intrcatment, an absolutely
even grade cannot be depended upon, al
though this difficulty could easily be
remedied by an uniform manner of cut
ting and curing. As usually prepared n
little blueing is added to the water In
which the strips arc washed and seasoned,
but this procedure could be omitted, re
taining the natural color of the wood, if
desired. A small quantity of the prepared
bamboo has been sent by parcels post to
Fischer & Michclls, at Florence, and Mr.
Turner awaits with interest a reply as to
its receipt and opinion of the quality of
material famished. It is said that large
quantities of bamboo could be used, pro
vided the quality is satisfactory.
Auk For Immediate Action.
The Board .of Trade have written to
Superintendent Holloway regarding the
taking of immediate steps for securing
the laud of Punahoa 2nd from the Ameri
can Board of Missions and closing nego
tiations with John T. Baker for the land
which it was supposed was already ac
quired for the Hllo water works. There
is no record here that cither tract has
been given over to the government al
though in November, 1901, a survey of
both lands surrounding the source of the
supply was made by Surveyor E. D.
Baldwin, for the purpose of affecting
"Assistance is also asked of the Depart
ment of Public Works, out of any funds
which arc available, to enclose or wall
up one hundred and fifty feet approxi
mately of iiu open canal connecting the
springs with the water head, where the
pipe line begins, Messrs. Lindsay and
Mumby of the Local Improvements Com
mittee report that the canal connecting
the water head proper with the springs is
overgrown and choked with vegetable
growth, and is exposed to the drainage
from the surrounding laud. The condi
tions, as reported at the last meeting of
the Board xf Trade were found to be
correct, and very dangerous, if not alarm
ing. In the letter addressed to Super
intendent Holloway, the Board of Trade
ask that title to the two tracts of land be
perfected without delay, and that the
eighty acres of land surrounding the
source of-water supply be fenced and the
exposed canal walled up, so that vege-'
table matter or roaming cattle cannot
pollute the water.
A lilt or Tact.
Editor Ilito Tridunk: The Hilo
teachers occasslonally assemble for the
purpose of exchanging ideas and discus
sing methods that may enable them to
do tnort efficient work, in the line of
teaching. Their meetings are open to
the general public and frequently clergy
men are requested to take part in the
proceedings. Now, when a gentleman of
the cloth does figure on the program it is
my humble opinion that good common
sense and the rules of propriety require
him to bear in mind the real object of the
meeting and confine himself to matters
purely educational, and not switch 'off
into useless religious controversy or dis
torted historical facts calculated to revile
any purticular creed and wound the feel
ings of the teachers belonging thereto.
Gentlemaulluess and tact are desirable In
a minister of the gospel. Insult and
misrepresentation are no arguments and
are employed only by such as carry no
Moreover, as religion is not allowed to
be taught in the public schools we may
rightly infer that it Is uot the desire of
the Board to have clergymen speak on
purely religious topics iu the Teachers'
District Conventions, and, the committee
in charge of the program ought to be
guided accordingly, Bigotry must not
be tolerated, H.
Rheumatism Cnn bo Cured,
Many sufferers from this painful disease
have been surprised and delighted nt the

berlain's Pulii Balm. A permanent cure
may be effected by continuing its use for
a short time. It will cost you but a trifle
to try It. Sold by the Hilo Drug Co.

Thfl Nelirnsknu Nnccuml) to Cold
Fret on Crater's llrlnk.
Kltoucn tins made good, but the man
from Nebrnskn did not appreciate it.
Stnrtlng out with good Intentions nnd
much promise, the volcanic nctlvlly that
showed signs of dying out last week, re
turned and has kept the visitors interested
nnd pleased throughout the week. The
action has been irregularly constant.
On Thursday evening a Chicago tourist
just arrived, remarked that he thought
the whole business about activity was a
cussed fake. About an hour later he was
standing on the Volcano House verandah
extolling the grandeur of the glow that
was reflected over the crater. He went
to the pit Friday, and again Saturday, re
turning more enthused by each vlsft'.
There tins been fire in the pit all week.
The lava lake at the bottom appears to be
forcing its way toward the top, although
evei so gradually. The extent of the new
lava inflow is variously estimated in size
according to the ability of each narrator
to triangulate the proposition and make
allowances for the effect of distance on
accuracy of vision and imagination. Each
party returning from the crater usually
has a different story to tell of the source
of the lava flow. At 10 o'clock Saturday
morning the only fire to be seen on ar
riving at the edge of the pit, was n faint
glow directly below the "bench" on the
soulhwrst side. Half nu hour later this
glow increased and a distinct flow of lava
could be seen forming regular waves.
which were later changed by some pow
erful unseen force to lateral dcmarknlions
drawn at right angles to the wave move
ment. The plow at this point gradually
dlrd down. At about noon a parly ar
riving at the edge of the pit, saw lava
flowing from the side directly opposite.
Fully one half the lake at the bottom,
that had hitherto been dark and appar
ently cooled, became a livid white heat,
bubbling with escaping' gases.
Thus the crater has been throughout
the week always "something doing,"
and thus far none who have visited the
Volcano have gone away' dissatisfied.
Frequent sharp explosions and the boom
of cave-ins have been heard, and those
who have visited the pit at night are en
thusiastic over the magnificence of the
The Volcano House has been doing the
business of its existence nnd, while main
taining its .reputation with the Island
people, has made the tourist happy, con
tented and anxious to come again. There
have been interesting nud notable excep
tions. One fastidious gentleman roared
like a wounded bull because he found no
room "with bawth y know." Demos
theues offered to turn him loose iu the
sulphur steam, but he would have none
of it. His antics only served to amuse
his fellow travelers.
The other was the man from Nebraska,
who suffered from chills and fever from
the time he set eyes on the first sulphur
crack till he got out of sight of the
island. He was as good as a circus and
the Volcano House management could
afford to keep him for the entertainment
of the guests. Had there been n balloon
handy the man from Nebraska would
have taken flight in it as soon as he ar
rived. According to the sage of Lincoln,
Nebraska, the Volcano House and all its
surroundings are due to drop into the
bowels of the earth as soon as he departs
he left by the first steamer and any
man or woman so foolish as to go to the
edge of the pit should have a guardian.
He finally got the courage to begin the
descent into the crater. When he neared
the pit, he saw the steam and heat waves
issuing from the hot cracks just beyond
the corral. The suggestion of hell and
damnation taught In the old fashioned
Sunday school, and the Impressions of
man's insignificance as well as the uncer
tainties of life were too much. Standing
on an anciently cooled wave of lava with
in three hundred yards of the pit, the
man from Nebraska loudly declaimed
that any man had a right to commit sui
clde, but for his part he most emphatic
ally ''passed." He retraced his steps to
.where his horse was tethered and returned
to the Volcano House close by, incessantly
pursued by blue devils, while others In
the party trudged on and saw the show.
The wise man from Lincoln, Nebraska,
with a New England twang and the Mis
souri drawl says he will return home and
apologize for ever having come to Hawaii.
His traveling companions think he ought
to. Dr. Holland, always thoughtful and
sympathetic, erected a . beautiful pine
board monument in the flower garden
sacred to the memory of chilled feet of
our visitor from afar. Let him R. I. P.ll
The tourists from Chicago, who had
seen Vesuvius, went on to the pit and,
besides voting the Nebraskau a Populist,
with queer ideas, declared one sight of
Kilauea worth a hundred of Vesuvius.
The unfortunate Incident of the week
was the accident to Mrs. G, W. Richards
of Goldfield, Nevadn, On the night of
the accident Mrs. Richards' friends were
disposed to place the blame for the acci
dent on the indifference of the guide or
the unreliability of the horse. Shu was
riding "Kaiser," the oldest aud steadiest
horse in the Volcano House stables. It

make a hurry-up record up the trail.
They were undoubtedly the cause of
crowding Mrs, Richards horse pff the ,
pathway, causing the unfortunate fall
which resulted iu the accident to Mrs.
Richards. Neither horses nor guides
can overcome the follies of children and
fools, who have no regard for others,
when going along a narrow trail in the
darkness of the night.
