Tub rapidly increasing commerce
of the port of Hilo calls for the con
struction of a breakwater on one of
the two reefs that now offer natural,
though not always complete, pro
tcction to the harbor. Hilo Bay
can be entered by any vessel, what
ever its dimensions, without fear
of danger, but the port needs im
provements in the way of break
water and docks. The government
will soon take steps, through its
engineers and experts, to determine
the best plan of improving the har
bor. To the lay mind, the plan of
building a ictty on the inner reef
appears to have some advantages.
On account of convenience of ma
terial for construction and the little
depth of water on the inner reef,
the cost of construction would be
comparatively small; The jetty
could be constructed so as to carry
rail road and electric road, and
from it could be built slips or docks
for the accommodation of shipping.
The force of the swell being broken
by the outer reef, twelve or fifteen
feet above high tide would be suf
ficieut elevation. It should be
built with an opening near the
shore for currents. Thus thrown
out it would afford ample room for
all shipping, with absolute protec
tion, more perfect than an outer
sea wall would give. It is the
policy of the United States to im
prove its harbors everywhere, and
the people of Hilo wait with inter
est the commencement of operations
by the federal government on the
improvement of this, in some re
spects, most important harbor in
In an appropriation bill recently
introduced in Congress by Delegate
Kalanianaole, is an item of $150,
000, for a federal building at Hilo.
At the last session such an appro
priation all but became a law. It
was approved by the House com
mittee to which it was referred;
passed the House; was approved
by the Senate committee. The
Senate failed to take up the general
appropriation bill in which our ap
propriation was embodied, however:
and so near the government came
to providing itself with a building
at this place. With so much accom
plished heretofore on the proposi
tion, less remains to do. The fact
that the last appropriation bill
advanced so far, should give great
prestige tfthe new bill.
TiiK reported purpose of the
Great Northern Railroad to have
their mammoth steamers the
Dakota and Minnesota call at the
islands on their return from the
Orient, together with tba fact that
it is not possible for them to enter
Honolulu harbor suggests the
thought of the natural superiority
of Hilo's harbor. Hill's liners, big
as they are, would have no diffi
culty entering Hilo bay and
would find ther quiet anchorage.
If Hill wants consider including
the islands 4nais trans-Pacific
schedule, Hilo would undoubtedly
be ready to undertake to provide
him with wharfage and coaling
Hilo weather statistics should
be, like the weather, a mixture of
rain and sunshine. Rain records
taken alone will give rise to' mis-
nDnreheiibiou in the minds of
strangers. Heavy rainfall, it is
true; but the brightest skies in the
world prevailing. s,

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEETINU.
I'mportnut Communication l'ulillo
Invited to Attend Board Moollncs.
The first meeting of the new executive
council of the Board of Trade wns held
at the board rooms Friday afternoon.
President Mason being absent, Mr. Scott,
first vice-president, took the chair,
Mr. Mason sent in Ills resignation ns
president of the board on account of ab
sence, which was not accepted.
A communication from Delegate Kiv
lauianaole was read, requesting the board
to draft and forward to Secretary of Agri
culture Hon. Jas. Wilson, a formal re
quest or petition asking that soil surveys
be made in this island, and a tobacco
expert be assigned to make a special
study of our local conditions and to assist
in getting our tobacco industry estab
lished on a sound basis. Our delegate
has had a consultation with the Secre
tary who promised to give favorable
consideration to the subject, aud, if It
was found that this work could be ex
tended to Hawaii to send such an
expert to assist in establishing the to
bacco industry here.
After some discussion, the council
decided to admit hereafter members of
the press to executive meetings. The
council also decided to advettise the
board meetings and Invite the general
public to attend. In view of this new
resolution the meeting to have been held
Friday evening was postponed one week,
to Friday, Feb. a, at 8 p. m., in Fireman's
hall and to this meeting the public ts
Invited to come.

announced from Portland,
Oregon, on December at, the agreement
dividing territorially the Oriental flour
trade between the large trans-Pacific
steamship companies came to an end on
that date as a result of a meeting of the
representatives of the different com
panies held there for the purpose of in
ducing the Great Northern Steamship
Company to confine itself to Oregon
and Washington and not to invade
California. The conference failed to
induce the Great Northern to reconsider
Rumor in the Orient now has it that
the Great Northern S. S. Company is to
run its two big vessels to Honolulu this
year on the homeward trip to Seattle.
Both the Minnesota ana the Dakota are
to come to Honolulu. News of this prob
ability was brought by the S. S. Moiv
According to the report given to the
officers of the Mongolia, and it came
from a man in the service of the other
company, who would be in a position to
know, the next homeward trips of the
big vessels were to be by way of Hono
lulu. The schedules of the Great North
ern S. S. Company give the sailing date
of the Dakota for Seattle direct, as Feb
ruary 10 and that of the Minnesota as
March 30. It is on these trips that the
two boats are to call at Honolulu. From
Honolulu they will go direct to Seattle,
not touching at San Francisco. The
purpose of coming to Honolulu is aid to
be to secure the travel of the Japanese
laborers to these islands. The boats
would probably not enter that harbor as
they are too big.
Old Landmark Changed.
The work of reconstructing the St.
Joseph's Catholic Church on Bridge
street is progressing, and with the frame
work of the towers completed and the
body of the building enclosed, some idea
may be obtained of how great the im
provement in appearance is to be. The
two heavy square towers, that have stood
for years as a feature in the view of Hilo,
have been replaced by two spires more
architecturally appropriate; less high in
appearauce, but, in reality, somewhat
higher. On account of the improvement
mid widening of the street in front of the
church, it became necessary to move the
building back several feet, aud, in order
to square it with the street, to swing the
back Puueo-ward a little. The towers
have been placed at the sides, instead of
in front and the building has been wid
ened teu feet on each side. It is im
portant to say "on each side," for the
reasou that the space between the old
towers taken in connection with the big
square tower of the Haiti Church has
heretofore been used ns the navigator's
landmark. It is probable that, slight as
the change is in moving the building
back and tquariug it around, the aline
meut would be affected at n distance, and
account would have to be taken of the
change and government charts and in
structions would havu to be modified

11UKN8 CliUIJ ENTERTAINMENT.
Scotch Honor Their foot's Ulrlhday
A large audience was present at the
entertainment given at Spieckels' hall
Saturday evening by the Hilo Burns Club
in honor of the 147th birthday anniversary
of Robert Bums, the poet "most dear to
the Scottish heart." Many of the Scotch
residents of the Hilo side of tUe Island
were present, from Hakalau to Olaa, and
the largo hall was filled with a distin
guished audience. The club had'tnadc
pains-taklug preparations to provide a
good evening's entertainment, and that
they were successful was evident from the
enthusiastic manner in which the num
bers on the program were received aud
the spirit with which the dancing was
cutered into afterward.
The first number, selection on bag
pipes, by Mr. R. Forbes in full costume,
was well performed. Mr. A. Forsythe,
of Olaa, sang the "Highlaudman'a Toast,"
with good voice. The Highland fling by
Miss Annie Chalmers in full Highland
dress, with bag pipe accompaniment,
was gracefully done and she was recalled.
Mr. Otis English sang, "Standard on the
Braes o' Mar." A short comedy followed,
entitled "A Pair of Lunatics," by Mrs.
A. G. Curtis and Mr. N. G. Campion,
which was full of ludicrous situations and
that called for some display of the his
trionic ability that the actors both gae
evidence of possessing. Miss Jcannie
Chalmers showed herself possessed of
musical taste and culture in her playing
of a "Nocturne," by Chopin, and "Selec
tions from Scotch Airs." She received
an encore. Mrs. Louise Hnpnl sang
"My Nannies Awa" very effectively, and
sing for an encore, "Bonnie, Sweet
Bessie." "Larghetto from second Sym
phony," Beethoven, a trio by Mrs. Moses,
violin; Mr. Carl Smith, cello, and Mrs.
J. T. Lewis, piano, a difficult piece, was
artistically preformed and was a musical
treat. Miss Kuulei Hapai sang in a
beautiful, sympathetic voice, "Aftou
Water," and responded to nn encore
with "Comin' thro' the Rye."
The address of the evening by Rev. C.
E. Shields followed. The speaker was
particularly happy In his treatment of the
subject, "Burns." His portrayal of the
Scotch character, though critical and
sometimes humorous, was highly appre
ciative. "Ye Banks ami Braes o' Bonnie
Doon" was well sung by Mrs. J. T. Lewis
aud Mrs. Louise Hapai. The audience
was aroused to enthusiasm by "Gae Bring
tae Me a Pint o' Wine," by Mr. G. 1. Lil
licoe, sung in good voice with splendid
spirit. He responded to an enthusiastic
encore with a parody on "My Love She's
But a Lassie Yet." A quartette consist
ing of Messrs. Otis English, G. A. Cool,
Win. Beers and J W. Marsh sang an ar
rangement of "Annie Laurie," a son so
popular that an encore was called for, and
responded to, with "Starsof the Summer
Night." The program was concluded
with the poem "At the Concert," by Mrs.
A. G. Curtis. The poem was well Inter
preted and rendered, the dramatic effect
being heightened by soft music. After a
few remarks by the president of the club,
Mr. Wilson, Mr. Lllllcoe led tlienudlence
in "Auld Lang Syne," and the floors
were cleared for dancing. A large num
ber took part in this feature of the even
ing, and the Highland schottisches and
Scotch reels seemed to be enjoyable num
bers. Several Scotch costumes were to
be seen on the floor one woman, two
young ladies and one gentleman being in
full Highland dress.
Later in the evening refreshments
were served, uud daucing was continued
till midnight, bringing to a close an even
ing thoroughly enjoyed by all. A great
deal of credit for the success of the musi
cal program is due to Mrs. J. T. Lewis,
Koa Timber Iudustry.
The Bishop estate, which owns the
Volcano of Kilauea and a lirge area of
country thereabout, has set aside a five
thousand acre strip of timber land ad.
joining the district of Olaa for a perma
nent forest reserve, acting in co-nperatiou
with the territorial government in the
latter's policy of setting aside such re.
serves. Of the remainder, a large tract is
under lease to O. T. Shipman and is used
by him as a cattle ranch. Five thousand
acres of remaining timber has been bond
ed to A. Rlchley of this city. A company
is in the process of organization to mill
this timber. Last week Geo. P. Thielem
of Honolulu, was in Hilo and ur to the
volcano on the business of investigating
tuc proposition. L,. A. Andrews lias been
employed to cruise the timbtt, make
estimates and advise as to methods of
handling the timber, etc., and with Mr.
Rlchley has been busy nt the work.
The timber is koa, whose value is well
known. These heavy lorests are nmong
our island's valuable assets. The timber
will probably be sawed up by mills in
the forest and the lumber shipped out by
the Hilo Railroad.
