utting down of the number
.t lights by the Board of Su
pervisors appears to have been done
on grounds of economy. The lights
were not in superabundance, and it
is probable that economy could
have been more wisely applied
along some other lines.
The Elks' lodge is deserving of
much praise for the excellence of
its performance of New Years even
ing. The preparation of the play,
as well as the other features of the
evening, must have required no
little work and time in preparation,
and the thanks of the people of
Hilo are due them for their good
We have the news that the gov
ernment is about to take the first
step towards the improvement of
Hilo harbor, with prospects favor
able for a continuance of the work
and the construction of the break
water. This is good. Hilo will
be glad to receive the attention due
her from the government.
Hilo unanimously backed Ioe
benstein as its representative with
the Washington delegation. Note
the fact and the day when Hilo be
came unanimous. It will be his
torical. Honolulu Bulletin.
Very true. Ioebenstcin is a
man whose ability all have faith
in, and through him we expect to
continue our history making.
According to the Honolulu
press, Governor Carter is holding
back on contracts to be made under
the loan bill, on account of the
doubt now existing as to the possi
bility of selling the $750,000 3J4
per cent bonds of the Territory
within the limit of the law.
Tub Territorial Board of Immi
gration is doing some rustling
along the line of relieving the labor
famine in the islands. A. h. C.
Atkinson cables from Washington
to the Territorial Board of Immi
gration that he accepts the mission
to the Azores in search of 5,000
Portuguese agricultural families to
come to Hawaii, and that he will
go at once.
February first is the date set for
the hearing of the Hawaiian meas
ure before Congress apcording to a
letter from Delegate J. Kalanianaole
to the Honolulu Evening Bulletin.
He says in his communication:
"The actiou of the President in re
commending that a portion of the
Hawaiian revenues be set aside for
local expenditures was a matter of
much gratification to me, both be
cause it is what Hawaii should
have, and also because it is along
the exact line of conversations of
both my secretary and myself with
Congressmen during the work of
last winter. In April last, I ad
dressed letters to both the Chamber
of Commerce and the Merchants'
Association, recommending this
specific thing, and stating my in
tention of introducing a bill to that
effect in the present Congress.
I am very glad that Governor
Carter's recommendation of this
measure led the President to bring
the matter before Congress; for that,
while by no means decisive, is al
ways of assistance in pressing a
measure which is without a com

A Dramatic Success Ulron
Many" of those who attended the enter
tainment given by the local Order of
Blks at Sprcckels' Hall Monday evening
were misled by the tile, iuto bclievfng
they would see a howling farce. "A Box
oi Monkeys," a comedy in two acts, was
a performance of a very high order.
The characters were well sustained and
those who took part received hearty ap
plause at the hands of a large and appre
ciative audience. The hall was tastefully
decorated for the occasion, and the stage I
setting also was attractive.
Miss Grace Rutherford as "Sierra
Beugaline," a typical American girl, was
breezy and charming, winning the
audience by the naturalness of her act
ing. "Lady Guinevere Land poor," an
English girl, portrayed by Mrs. II. L.
Shaw, showed much thought and pre
paratlon in manner and action. Mrs. E.
N. Holmes filled the role 'of "Mrs.
Ocdegojhoncs," a la 'v who had social
aspirations, with dignity and effect.
Norman G. Campion as the young Ameri
can. "Edward Ralston," hunting his
fortune in the Sierra gold mine, was
easy in manner and succeeded in estab
lishing himself as an actor of uo small
merit. D. E. Metzgcr as "Chauney
Oglethorpe," the bashful young man
seeking his fiance, interpreted the part
with a finish peculiarly his own. Much
credit is due Mrs. A. G. Curtis for her
masterly handling of the play and its
proper presentation to a Hilo audience
by local talent. Every one fortunate
enough to see the performance was
highly pleased. Following the play, the
ball was cleared for dancing, which was
enjoyed until a late hour. At 11 o'clock
the lights were turned low and the toast
"To our absent Brothers" sung with good
effect by Mr. O. E. English, accompanied
on the piano by Mrs. J. T. Lewis.
