Tun Hilo Boardinc School is
now in its sixty-ninth year and the
present handsome edifice is an evi
dence of the work and painstaking
endeavor of those who manage it.
The popular response of the public
to the call for assistance, received a
practical turn in the line of liberal
patronage of the Thanksgiving
Day entertainment given iti the
new building. It must be a matter
of gratification not only to those
connected with this praiseworthy
institution but to the public for the
work accomplished and now going
on under its roof for the education
of young men. Here, the boys
arc taught to become manly men
and good citizens, and while some
of those students who graduate
from this institution, may not fulfill
the expectations which their train
ing inspires, the result can only be
beneficial. The methods of dis
cipline, the mental and manual
training will leave its indelible im
press upon the character of every
young, man who crosses its portals
to battle with the world.
ECHOES OF THE PRESS.
The intricacies of the Hawaiian
land laws furnish some abysmal
depths for many to fathom, but
there arc self-evident truths in Am
erican laud administration which
appeal to all men.
The object of all land laws is, or
should be to give the settlers a
square deal a little more than this
perhaps, if it be obvious that he
is acting in good faith.
Take the homesteader who has
taken up laud in a section that
promises well. He invests his all,
builds his house, starts to make a
home. Reversal of circumstances
over which he has no control make
it impossible for him to carry out
in absolute exactness the residence
clause. Say failure of the industry
to which he has devoted his land
has forced him to go to work on a
distant sugar plantation for part
of the year. He maintains his
home on his homestead but can't
stay there every day, and exist.
It is not good public policy to
add to his hardships by forcing him
out. The purpose of American
government is not to act the part
of a harsh task master.
Public land policies should not
be framed with an idea of taking
advantage of anyone. Home build
ers, industry promoters, whether
they be individuals, associations or
corporations, should be fostered.
Wreckers, piratical grafters and
purely speculatius squatters arc
entitled to as harsh treatment as
the law allows,
Occasionally men and governments
are fooled. In ninety-nine cases
out of a hundred the honest man
and the honest motive can be lo
cated amid a crowd of shams. The
administrative officer should do
everything in his power to aid the
honest man and thereby lend great-

Aiiuunl Mootlnp; nud Election of Of
llccrs of Ililo Library.
The annual meeting of the Hilo I'rce
Reading Hoom nud Librnry Association
was held in the Library parlors on Sat
Mrs. L. Severance, President of the
Library Association, made n brief ad
dress, reviewing the work of the past
year. Her remarks In part nrc ns follows:
"There hns not been much to record of
change in our Library during the past
year, except as regards Librarians. Mrs.
N. A. Tracy, nlert, experienced nnd
methodical in business matters called
Miss Ksthcr Potncroy to her assistance
for a couple of months white stress of
duties in other lines absorbed her time.
In July she left to make her home in the
States nud Miss Amy Hill received the
appointment of Librarian.
"The trustees decided to keep the
Library open two extra hours each day
except Sunday and increased the Libra
Halt's salary to thirty-five dollars per
month. The comfort, chceriuess and
'homey' atmosphere of our Library room
is often commented upon by visitors and
it has proved n God-send to many tourists
who have been at the hotel next door
without n parlor or reading room. One
tourist made the remark in Honolulu
after her return that the books were well
selected and the reading room n boon on
n rainy day.
"Our library is truly nil intellectual
center of moral and educational value
greater than c realize. The number
nud quality of its books has been favor
ably criticized by those who were in n
position to compare it with other libraries
of its size and tojudge of its merits. We
have to thank those who have contributed
to its support.
"In October last wc sent for 'Poole's
Periodical Index,' a most valuable addi
tion to our library for all seekers of mag
azine articles. In reference to this index
I will quote (rom n printed pamphlet:
"While 11 student or professor at Yale
College in the early fifties Hen Perely
Poole had charge of the library and be
came impressed with the fact that a great
wealth of magazine literature was of no
practical use to the student because of
the lack of an index.
"He decided to make one of nil the
magazines then available, nud it at once
met a popular need. Then he continued
nnd extended his work for the benefit of
all libraries nud scholars.
"As n result we have Poole's Periodical
Index of inestimable value. Anew edi
tiou to date is issued nt least every ten
years. The manuscript copy of the first
crude Index is now exhibited in the
British Museum, London. Mr. Poole
later became Librarian ofoneof Chicago's
great libraries, and died a few years ngo.
When wc consider the importance of the
magazine of today ill its reviews of current
events and discussion of all that the past
has revealed nud of all the vital topics
which aflect human life, we can realize
the value of Mr. Poole's great work. No
library, however smull, is complete with
out his Index.
"There are many things we would like
to do, to send for more reference books,
to card catalogue our library, nud to re
paint our building. We greatly appre
ciate the Mipport of the press, always a
potent factor for education. An occa
sional item in our local newspapers and
frequent visits of reporters to gather
items that interest the public are of great
benefit to the library. Let us be en
couraged for we have certainly made ad
vancement during the past year.
"That the value of the Hilo Library and
Heading Room may be more widely
recognized by our citieus in town and in
outlying country (for nil are privileged to
use it), is the earnest hope of its officers
Miss Amy P. Hill, the librarian, read u
brief report of the work accomplished
during her incumbency of the position of
librarian since Inst July. The library
was then found to contain 2,490 volumes.
Twenty-two volumes have been presented
by various friends of the librnry, fifty
four have been purchased, making a totnl
of seventy-six additional volumes. The
annual .subscribers number 66, monthly
subscribers 45, making n total of ill.
During the past six months, there hae
been withdrawn from time to time, 1,960
books, of which 311 have been sent to
outlying districts, without charge,
through the courtesy of the Volcano
Stables. The average daily attendance
in the leading room was shown to be 39
persons, in the ratio of 9 in the morning,
