"I.otd God of Hosts, lie with us yet,
Lest we Cornet, let we fotget."
It is a great pity when any noble
anniversary lose for a l'irgo num
ber of people its original signifi
cance. It is a regtetablc fact that
there is reason to fear that this loss
is taking place with reference to
the day we commemorate in honor
of the great army of the dead.
More than forty-four years have
passed since our gre.tt war began,
but time has not effaced nor dimmed
the piople's grateful memory of the
sictificcs of the men who partici
pated in that struggle and whose
patriotism, lortitude and courage
saved our Union fiom destruction.
The survivors of that great
struggle each year are growing less
and the pas-dug years have strength
ened the ties of comradeship which
bind them together in one great
brotherhood. The recollection of
that terrible period rcinann fresh
with them, and the spirit of patriot
ism which this day inspires, revives
in us the memory of those departed
heroes and our lasli ig gratitude to
the veterans who are with us still.
There is a lamentable lack of
public interest in Ililo in matters
which effect the general welfare of
the community and which should
receive an awakening from the able
and intelligent remarks delivered
by Hon. C. M. LcHloml at the
Hoard of Trade meeting on Friday
night. Kvnry town welcomes de
sirable population. livery town
seeks new arrivals and this can be
accomplished only by honest, pains
taking endeavor and by every in
dividual sinking all personal differ
ences and striving to upbuild the
community in which he lives.
Do not be a nonenity. He a good,
decent citizen and a benefit to the
community in which you live.
Don't be a knocker. If you don't
like any person or his actions, tell
him so, but don't be a man or
woman who will abuse another be
hind his back. Shun the man who
deals in personalities and deserves
nothing but contempt. He one of
the citizens of your community.
COST OF OIL ROADS.
Santa Clara County in California
began oiling roads in 1892, and now
has about seventy miles of such
highways. The results have been,
according the State Bureau of I'ub
lid Highways, on the whole highly
satisfactory. In the first stages of
the experimenting with oil sprinkl
ing there were strenuous objections
by some of the people to this me
thod of improving the highways.
The chief grievance was the fact
that when the oil was first applied
it rendered the roads disagreeable
to travel upon and had a tendency
to soil vehicles and clothing. This,
however, proved to be only a tem
porary trouble, as a few days, when
the oil had been properly worked
in and the surface smoothed and
packed by thorough rolling, suffi
ced to harden the surface and keep
it clean. It was soon realized that
the inconvenience caused by the
first application of oil was not near
ly so great as was caused by the
first application of ginvel. In the
latter case it requires nearly a year
for the road to become packed and
and smooth, while with oil the time
to put it in readiness for easy and
dustless travel is only a few days.
Oil has the advantage over water
in the fact that where applied there
is absolutely no dust, and where the
road-bed is properly prepared there
is practically no mud during the
ta'niy season. The cost per mile
of watering the valley roads of San
ta Clara County has averaged about !
$87 per per season, exclusive of the
cost of water, expenditures for
water-wagons, rcpaiis, etc., and
wilh that added, the cost per mile
pet annum has been about $121.
The cost of oiling a mile of road the
fit Ht season is about oo, for the se
cond season about $50, with a de
creasing expense each season fol
lowing. Thi'i estimate includes the
entire expense of oiling, and shows
a saving of water of 33 per mile
the fust year and $73 per mile the
second year, a saving in expense
which is pi city sure to appeal
strongly to the tax payers.
The experiments now being made
on Uridge street and elsewhere in
Ililo by the Road Hoard will be
watched with interest. The use of
waste molasses on roads near sugar
refine) ies has been effectively used
and there should be no lack of
material either of oil or molasses
for road construction in llaw.iii.

General will be here next Thursday. The

that time, when 1 hope we shall be able
to proceed with the criminal cases. The
petty jurors have been biimmoncd for
Wednesday, and whether there will be
any civil cases ready will depend iiKn
the lawyers and litigants. I nm anxious
