The Supreme Court decision of
the Naturalization case, which is
printed in full in another portion
of this paper, has received a good
deal of attention from the attorneys
in the different parts of the territory.
While the decision only disposes of
the question of the right of the
territorial courts to naturalize aliens,
still the reasoning which is adopted
is far-reaching in its consequences,
if the claims of the members of the
Bar are to be recognized. It is
now contended bv a number of
attorneys that the reasoning of the
court in this case makes it necssary
that the circuit courts of this
Territory have the right to entertain
bankruptcy proceedings. The reas
oning by which this is brought
about is as follows. The Federal
Naturalization Act provides that
district courts of the territories have
the right to naturalize. The recent
decision lays down the law that the
circuit courts of this Territory are
similar to the district courts estab
lished in the other territories and
therefore may naturalize aliens.
The second section of the federal
Bankruptcy Act provides that bank
ruptcy proceedings may be commen
ced in the federal district courts of
"the several territories and the
United States courts in the Indian
Territory and the District of
If this contention is upheld by our
supreme court it will be, valuable
for our citizens who wish to com
mence bankruptcy proceedings with
out going to the federal court in
It is too true, what a tourist
quoted elsewhere in this issue says
of the people of Honolulu .with
reference to their attitude toward
the island of Hawaii. He notices
that there are too many knockers
around Honolulu. They discour
age one from going over to see the
volcano. That volcano is one of
the greatest attractions you havel
It is the one big attraction, and
should have world-wide publicity.
It doesn't pay the people here to
discourage travelers from going
over to Hilo and up to the volcano.
Its hogging the thing too much.
Send the people over there." He
was charmed with Honolulu but
was even more enthusiastic about
what he saw on the island of Ha
waiiHUo hopes her big sister
will heed the advice) given, as it is,
by an unprejudiced observer, and
so obviously sensible. Ict narrow
'jealousy be laid aside, and give
place for pride in the fact that these
islands have so many and diverse
attractions for the visitor. We
might add, that when the proposed
belt line electric road around the
island is completed the island of
Hawaii will have attractions to
to offer of which a glimpse only is
now to be seen.
Tim decision of the territorial
supreme court that the circuit
courts of the territory have the
right to naturalize aliens disposes
of the case for the present and
finally, uuless carried to a higher
tribunal. It does not, however,
close the discussion on the correct
ness of the decision and the consid
eration of its effects. Our attention
is called to the possible bearing the
.decision may have onproceedings
in bankruptcy. Wnat the effect
would have been had a contrary
deciSwn been niched, it is not easy
to see-that it would be far-reaching
aud would involve miny serious
questions relative to elections, etc.,
A lath issue of the "Hawaii
Primer" contains a view of the
mouth of the Wailyjju river and
the picturesque and interesting old
suspension bridge that used to span
it. The Board of Trade should
furnish the promotion committee
yith something more suggestive of
the spirit of progress prevailing
here. Let the picture be accom
panied by the explanatory note
that the old bridge is now replaced
by nil up-to-date structure, the
finest in the island.

Changes In L'ollco Force.
The changes in the administration of
the police affairs went into effect on the
15th. The reduction in the number of
officers in South Hilo from 14 to' 8 is
considerable Sheriff Keolanui thinks
too great. He considers the force too
small to meet the requirements. Waia
kea, especially, needs better protection.
Under the territory a force of 31 men was
allowed, here. When Mr. Keolanui was
elcctcdhcriff under county government
the number was reduced to 14, which
number he thinks is required.
The force in the North and South Hilo
districts now consists of Henry Martin,
captalu; S. K. Kohnna, lieutenant; J.
Kaailau, lieutenant; O. Yotara, Japanese
officer; joe Cook, Portuguese officer; J. H.
K. Keawehaku, Chinese officer; Harry
Knell, mounted patrol, S. K. Keaki, of
ficer at Houomu. There is no change
iu the office force.
At Puna one officer was retired leaving
three Leone Kamahele, captain, living
at Paboa; J. Kama, officer, living at Kal
apana, and Captain Coleman, living at
At Kau one officer was dispensed with,
leaving two J. W. Kualmoku, captain,
and Harry Lainaholo and K. Kaweln,
North and South Kona have the same
officers, with some reduction in pay, also
North Kohala. South Kohala continues
to employ the same force at some advance
in salaries. Hamakua retains the same
force, salaries reduced.
The reorganization in the department
resulted from a resolution introduced by
Supervisor Desha at the January meeting
of the board, by which the salaries of all
police officers were declared cat off on
January 15, the object of the resolution
being to place the administration of the
department in the bands of the police
commission of the board.
Carl S. Smith Considered.
"Governor Carter said this morning, in
answer to a question,, mat ne iiau not
yet made any recommendation to the
President odjfcpuccessor to Circuit Judge
Robinson. IleJso stated that he intend
ed to do so, and it is persumed that a name
will be cabled to Washington before next
Tuesday, when the Judge's term expires.
Just who will be the man is a subject of
considerable speculation. There is some
talk of Carl Smith of Hilo and another
report has it that the position maybe
offered to M. F. Prosser, the present
deputy attorney general," Honolulu
Attorney Smith has ability to fill the
position aud his recommendation and
appointment would be a recognition of
Hilo that would be appreciated.
A Habit To Be Encouraged.
The mother who has acquired
the habit of keeping on hand a
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Re
medy, saves herself a great amount
u!H easiness and anxiety. (Coughs,
colds and croup, to which children
are susceptible are quickly cured by
its use. It counteracts auy tenden
cy of a cold to result in pneumonia,
and when given as soon as the
first symptoms of croup appear, it
will prevent the attack. This re
medy contains nothing injurious
and mothers can give it to little
ones with a feeling of perfect secu

EXPRESSIONS OP OrlNIUN.
Idcns of Somo Uusiucss Men as to
Hoard of Trade.
The Tribunb has asked some of
the business men of the city for an
expression of opinion concerning
the Board of Trade, as to its past,
present and future work, and its
value. It finds some diversity of
opinion, as is to be expected. All
seem to agree on one point, viz.:
that the board has served a good
purpose. If it has not been perfect,
it is like most other organizations
iu that respect. It is human to
err, and if infallibility were the test
for existence we should all retire
with no one to take our places. The
opinion is strong, though not
unanimous, that the board is an
important organization that ought
to be maintained; that it needs
larger membership and the support
and advice to be so derived; that if
it has made mistakes in the future,
it should profit by experience and
avoid them iu the future; that it
needs reforming, not abandoning.
The opinions given areas follows:
E. N. Holmes: "The Board of
Trade has performed valuable ser
vices for the public iu the past and
is an important organization. If
public interest in its work is wan
ning, I am very sorry. I do not
think the interest in the organiza
tion will decrease but believe that
under the new officers elected it
will grow. I think that many of
the public improvements now being
made are due in a measure to the
efforts of the Board of Trade and
that the present good sanitary con
dition and the health of the city
are due entirely to their efforts. It
ought to be maintained and. sup
ported by the public."
Mr. Holmes, as president, now
retiring, has given two years of
hard work gladly to the service of
John W. Mason: "I consider
the Board of Trade as an organiza
tion of the highest importance to
Hilo. Every man having an inter
est) in the city should have member
ship in the board and should use
all influence to induce such others
as are not members to join also.
The leading business houses con
tribute liberally toward the support
of the board and toward doing
the work that devolves upon it
in protecting the public health and
otherwise promoting public inter
ests; individuals derive their part of
the benefit from the expenditure of
these moneys and should contribute,
each at least a small share. It is
absolutely necessary that greater
public interest should be taken in
the organization and that the mem
bership should be increased. To
maintain a membership in the
board is the least any resident in
terested iu the place should expect
to do. The Chamber of Commerce
fills its place, is an absolute neces
sity and should be maintained. The
Board of Trade fills at least as im
portant a place and its maintenance
is a necessity. Their fields of use
fulness are different; they do not
conflict. The objection that has
been made that there was too much
secrecy about the workings of the
board is not a good one. The ex
ecutive committee has been the
working force of the board, as in
every business organization of its
kiud everywhere. The importance
to Hilo of its Board of Trade can
hardly be overestimated; the need
of a revival of public interest in its
work is imperative."
Mr. Mason is the newly elected
president of the board and some
thing of his energy, enterprise and
public spirit may be read from his
L,. A. Andrews: "The board has
done a great deal for Hilo; it is a
public necessity and should be
maintained. I understand that the
members all desire full publicity of
all its doings. The charge that its
actions were of the 'star chamber'
order is not true. On the contrary,
the board invites and urges the
fullest participation by the public
geuenlly iu all of its deliberations,
and .lusiresus large a representation
of business men as possible 011 the j
board ta control Us actions."
