A MATTER OF HEALTH
HAS NO SUBSTITUTE
cut out li.vurAiiomoi:.
"Tlie question of n new nnd larger
boat for the Houolulu-Hlloruu has never
come up before the directars,"said Presi
dent Kennedy of the Inter-Inland Steam
Navigation Company, recently to an Ad
vertiser reporter. "Such an idea has
only been n thought in my mind, that's
all. I have thought Kauai needed a
larger boat, and the only way to get it
would be to put the Kinau on the Kauai
run and get a bigger boat with more pas
scngpr accommodations for the Hilo
There is some talk of cutting out Lau
pahoehoe from the run taken by the Ki
nau. Passengers seldom embark or de
bark there, but it's iu the mail contract
for the Kinau to slot) there recularly.
Laupahoehoe is a sore sot with passci
gers going to and coming from Hilo.
The Kinau rolls and pitches at, the an
chorage to an extent which gives the peo
ple mnl dc mcr. If Laupahoehoe were
ommitlcd, the trip to Hilo would be
mostly a pleasure throughout.
The new Hilo vessel will be larger,
faster nnd be nble to accommodate many
more passengers than the Kinau.
While the plans and specifications
have not yet been prepared, the build
ing of n new boat is seriously contem
plated nnd the matter will be material
for consideration at the next meeting of
the directors of the company. It is
planned, with the new boat, to leave
Honolulu at noon or t o'clock every
Tuesday and reach Hilo before 7 o'clock
on the following morning.

Chief Attractions Tor Tourists to
"I lind a delightful trip to the Volca
no," said II. I. Wood, secretary of the
Hawaii Promotion Committee, on his re
turn to Honolulu.
"The Volcano House is splendidly
kept, the rooms are clean aud the table
is excellent. Lycurgus raises all his own
vegetables aud he supplies them iu great
quantities to the table. It is an attrac
tive place, aud the whole trip is one that
no one should miss. It is the greatest
attraction that Hawaii has to offer to the
"Hilo is an attractive little town, and
much improved since I was there last.
The most beautiful thing there is the
'Rainbow Falls. I understand that the
citizens are arranging to have the falls
and adjacent land set apart as a public
park, which is an excellent plan.
"I realize more than ever before how
attractive the Islands are to tourists.
California has a dcligetful climate, but
it is no such climate as Hawaii possesses.
The mornings aud evenings in Hawaii are
delightful aud there Is no comparison
with other places.
"I believe that the climate conditions
of these islands will result in a largely
increased travel this way."

The indivual who caused the accident, a
Japanese by the name of Kuwamoto, was
placed under arrest and is held pending
an investigation of the corouor's jury.
He was under the influence of liquor at
The celebration was one of tlie most
brilliant and gorgeous ceremonies ever
witnessed iu Hilo, A parade of two
hundred small children iu gaily bedeck
ed Japanese costume through the princi
pal streets of the town preceded the
literary and musical exercises which took
place at the temple. Geisha dances,
songs and dramatics were a part of the
program which drew hundreds of
followers of the Huddhist faith as well as
many strangers, nttracted by the beauty
of the scene.
At the November meeting of the Piano

night with a large gnlhcriug of members,
wives, sweethearts nnd friends of Hilo
Lodge No. 7, Knight of 1'ythins, to enjoy
the Indies' social given by that popular
The hall was tastefully decorated with
palms nnd evergreens mid during the first
part of the evening an excellent program
of music and literary exercises was rend
ered, after which the halt was given up
to dancing. W. S. Wise delivered an
illustrated lecture on the history aud
principles of the Pythian order and the
strong ties of friendship aud fratcriialism
which unite its members. Miss Amy
Williams nnd Rosie Ilclbush rendered n
piano duct iu n pleasing manner nnd Mrs.

which wns well received. The bagpipes
were played by Mr. Robert Forbes, mid

Club sang several selections which earned
repeated cucoics. At different times
during the evening pictures of famous
scenes of the world were thrown upon n
screen, the stereopticau being operated
by J. McNichols. The committee on
arrangements consisted of L. Ilclbush,
chairman, L. A. Andrews, N. C. Willfoug,
Carl Wicliert and John Detor.
The history of the order as sketched
by Mr. Wise was, iu part, as follows:
"The order of Knights of Pythias was
founded by the organization of Washing
ton Lodge No. r, iu the City of Washing
ton, D. C, on February 19, 1863.
"The founder, Justus II. Rathbone,
was born iu October, 1839, nnd died iu
December, 18S9, being buried in Forest
Hill Cemetery nt Uticn, N. Y. His rest
ing place is marked by a monument
erected to his memory by the order
which he founded.
"The name of the order was suggested
to the founder while attending a theater
at which the play "Damon mid Pythias"
was being produced, and like most secret
societies, its objects are for mutual benefit
and protection of its members Its chief
teaching being that of friendship,
"The organization owns aud maintains
at Springfield, Ohio, n Pythian Orphan's
Asylum, the value of which is about
$350,000 and it annually cares for 250 to
300 orphans of deceased members. The
order is fourth iu numerical strength iu
the U. S., its membership being upwards
"Hilo Lodge No. 7 was instituted Jan
uary 19, 1899, through the efforts of P. C.
Fred Wnldron, who at that time was
manager of the Volcano House. The
order has ever since been and now is, iu
a flourishing condition nnd have very
desirable lodge rooms, occupying the
entire third floor of the Haldwin Huild
