Why Carter Resigned.
The San Francisco Call ofjulyshas
the following interview with Governor
Carter, given nt the St. Francis Hotel in
"The result of the election did not
please me, I will admit," said Carter
yesterday, "but that was only one little
incident and taken by itself would never
have suggested any thoughtof retirement.
The full reason for sending in my resig
nation is a long story and one I do not
feel at liberty to tell nt this time. I will
say this much, however. As Territorial
Governor I represented in Hawaii the
President of the United States. The
President is a man of decided Yiews. I
have views of my own iu regard to Ha
waiian matters atid I feel that in some
things my views differed from those of
"I am going to Washington to have a
long talk with the President and the real
reason for placing my resignation in his
hands was to avoid any embarrassment
in the event of his deciding to placesome
body else at the helm in Hawaii."

test by Curtis Iaukea, defeated candidate
for Delegate to Congress, Mr. McClellan
"In Washington we retained General
Willian Wade Dudley on the contestec's
presentment. I went over the matter at
length with him.
"General Dudley expressed himself as
entirely confident of successfully defend
ing the seat of the returned member.
"Incidentally, iu regard to such elec
tion contests in the 58th Congress, there
were thirteen cases brought. Of these
thirteen the only contestant seated was in
the case of a member from Colorado,
where the contestee voluntarily resigned
General Dudley requires that I return
to Washington in September to furnish
detailed information tor his preparation
of n reply brief in the case."
The Triiiunk was in error last week

Cost or Street Lights To lie Home
J. C. Mocitic, manager of the Hilo
Electric Light Co., Ltd., has umdc a prop
osition to the Hoard of Supervisors for
the maintenance of street lights under
the couuty. The responsibility of the
Territorial government for the expense
of street lighting for Hilo terminated on
July 1st, to which fact Mr. Mocine calls
attention. In his letter to the Board he
euuuieratesthe lights at present in use as
Fourteen arc lights at $8 eaclnper
mouth ft 1 2.00
One hundred 32-c. p. incandescent
lights at $1.20 1 30.00
One 32-c. p. incandescent light at
Kinau wharf I. ao
Renewals of incandescent lamps,
receptacles and sockets, per
Total per month, street service.. 363.30
In addition to the above streat lights,
the Territorial government has hereto
fore paid for the following:
Sheriff's Office, 13 iC-c. p. lights at
. 55C $ 7.'5
Sheriff's Office, I fan motor 1.00
Firemen's Hall, 6 i6-c. p. lights at
Hilo Road Board, 1 10 h.-p. motor
at rock crusher at $4 per day,
actunl runnii'g time.
Iu explanation of the rate of ft. 20 per
month for 32 caudle power lamps, as
against the rate of 50 cents per month
for 16 candle power lights where the
number exceeds twenty, Mr. Mocine says
the difference is based on the fact that
the average hours of lighting of the street
lamps is practically eleven hours per day,
while the average house lighting is prac
tically only about four hours per day,
The additional charge is also based on
the maintenance of street lights iu the
cost of labor in placing renewals.
The Finance Committee, to whom was
referred this communication, reported it
back to the Board, recommending a
change of the cost of incandescent street
lights froui 120 to $100 per month.
With this amendment the couimittcc'H
recommendation was approved.

working around the mountain to the Hu
muula sheep station. Thence tliey will
take the trail that leads to the volcano of
Kilauea, examining various lava flows
on the side of Mautia Loa.
It is their intention to fully investigate
the volcanoes 011 Hawaii, after which
they will go into Kau district to examine
the soil which has been found so fertile
by the various sugar plantations estab
It has been thought up to the present
time that during an eruption of some one
of the volcanoes, a great mass of dust was
thrown into the air, and settling 011 the
lower side of the islaud, conformed large
ly to the configuration of the lava flows.
This dust of several feet depth is fertile
and that is what is thought strange of the
phoeuoiuena. Local scientists do not be
lieve that the rich soil came from eroslou.
