T. Wubklock Marsh - Editor
D. W. Marsh Business Manager.
Thk Board of Trade calls the at
tention of the authorities to several
matters. Among these is that of
reducing the number of street lights
and policemen. The real economy
of such reductions, or the necessity
of applying economy at this point
at all, is doubtful. The matter of
straightening streets and of having
fences placed on lines, is important
and an application of that principal
would make a material improvement
in the appearance of some parts of
the city. Sign boards and mile
posts, also, are inexpensive and de
sirable, and are among the minor
details that go to make up general
Concbrn is felt in the financial
world on account of the state of
affairs in Russia and the distrust
existing regarding Russian secur
ities. The European maikets are
flooded with them. The investing
public wishes to sell; nobody wishes
to buy, and the only purchaser is
the Russian government. The re
serve of this government and its
resources are limited, and, appar
ently, must soon be exhausted.
Should the credit of the autocracy
collapse, it would be a disaster far
reaching in its effects. A panic of
world-wide extent is a possibility
as one of the consequences of revo
lution in Russia.
Thk territorial conveyance and
its motive power are replevined by
Norman K. Lyman, who as road
supervisor, "claims rightful posses
sion of and to the same" and asks
restitution as being "personal prop
erty." The property belongs to
the territory and its use has been
allowed to the county road super
visor for official purposes, presum
ably. No right of possession, not
revocable at any time was conferred.
The government needs the rig
here, and ought to leave it; but
that is another story.
Story of Hllo Hay.
A Hawaiian boy of Hllo is the hero of
a stirriug story which Adeline Knapp,
the well-known California writer, con
tributes to The Youth's Companion of
January 18. The scene of the story is
Hilo harbor on n morning when a
fictitious' steamer loaded with gasoline
and oil caught fire and ran amuck among
the anchored shipping. The story might
well have been possible and is true in its
setting. It will be interesting rending to
residents of the islands, particularly of
Uro. Cnrbonuior Dead.
The funeral of the late Brother Aquille,
who was the oldest lay brother attached
to the Catholic Mission in Hawaii, took
place at four o'clock last Thursday from
the Catholic cathedral in Honolulu.
The deceased had been in Hawaii for
sixty years, He was born in France, and
to the day of his death had not learned
to speak English to any extent, but be
was fluent in the Hawaiian tongue and
was regarded at the Mission as something
of ah authority on island history.

The excruciating pains characteristic of
rheumatism aud sciatica are quickly re
lieved by applyiug Chuuiberlalii's Fain

of the liniment has been the surprise and

quick relief from pain which it affords is
alone worth many times its cost. For

A TIIIAIj WAVK.
A tidal wave of small proportions, but
the real thing, came on the coast and into
Hilo bay about 6 p. tu. Wednesday even-
lug. The waters first receded to a point
considerably below low tide and then
slowly returned and rose to a height of
about 30 inches above high tide mark
The water rose fuly up to the floor of
the old wharf at the foot of waianueuue.
Street and over the railroad track at its
lowest places. The sea was unsettled and
several successive waves followed of
about the same height. About fifteen
minutes was consumed by the wave in
receding from its highest to Its lowest
point and about as much in rising again
to high point. The unusual phenomenon
was watched by a good many. At the
Walakea river and other lower points,
inhabited by the Japanese, there was
something like a panic. There was very
much of a mix up in the river of Japauesc
fishing boats, steam and naphtha launches
and tugs, sugar barges and aquatic vege
tation loosened from the upper shores of
the river. A few fishing boats were
smashed and 50 or 60 feet of Lucas boat
house wharf was damaged and required
The inhabitants, many of them, left for
higher and drier ground, some going up
the railroad track and crimping out for
the night, others to the enclosures at the
Foreign and Ilalll churches, bringing,
what baggage they could carry with
them. Some of the white inhabitants,
also, down toward Reed's bay concluded
to visit their friends on higher ground.
Slight damage was done to the Kinau
bridge and to the jetty between this and
the railroad bridge. The total height of
the wave between highest and lowest
point was about 7 feet. The big tidal
wave of '77 was 6 feet higher, and that of
four or five years ago about the same as
this. These were both due to earth
quakes, the latter tidal wave to an
earthquake in Japan, and was
higher on the Kon.i side of the island.
The older residents believe such was the
cause of the present one, though these
waves are often caused by storms at sea.
Extension to Uovcrnmcnt Wharf.
The Territory advertises for bids for
makiug repairs to the Government wharf
and for the construction of an addition.
The addition is to be built at an angle
with the present wharf and about parallel
with the Railroad wharf, the front line
of the addition to be flush with the corner
of the old wharf, and to be 180 feet long
and $21 feet wfde. The rebuilding and
enlargement is done to fit it for the use
of the Inter-Island Navigation Co., and
on completion this company will occupy
The contract for construction will re
quire the contractor to furnish all tools,
labor, etc., the material to be furnished
by the Hoard of Public Works. Piles are
to be driven to solid rock, braced with
driven piling, sheathed with ship felt and
yellow metal, and eighteen of the number
are to be protected at the base with con
crete armor. The wharf is to be surfaced
with 4x12 inch planking. ' It is to have
two freight chutes and six mooring bits.
Bach bidder must stipulate the shortest
time iu which he will agree to finish the
work. The successful bidder will be re
quired to furnish a bond of some terri
torial corporation or surety company in
the amount of $350. The contractor shall
employ a competent foreman, and must
also give his persoual attention to the
work; a subcontractor will not be allowed
to act as contractor's foreman or repre
sentative. No one in the employ of con
tractor shall be required to work longer
than eight hours a day, aud no one but a
citizen of the United States, or eligible to
become a citizen, shall be employed.
Replevin of Hig.
A team aud buggy belonging 'to the
territorial government, sent over here
for the use, principally, of G. II. Gere,
engineer in charge of public works under
construction in this county, were re
pleveued by N. K. Lyman, papers being
served on the Volcano Stables at 2 a. m.
County ClerkFua received a letter,
dated January 33, from C. S. Holloway,
Superintendent of Public Works, Hono
lulu, asking him to request the Board of
Supervisors to return the horses and
buggy by first steamer, stating that Mr.
Gere would see about shipment. Mr.
Pua replied immediately that the Board
would not be likely to meet till February
6, that the matter would be referred to
them at that time, regretting delay, etc.
Mr. Gere called upon the county clerk
for an order for the rig and the county
clerk having no authority excepting as
authorized by the Board, called upon
Chairman Moir for such authority, which
was issued by 'phone, addressed to N. K.
Lyman who had been authorized to use
the rig as road supervisor under permis
sion of the territorial authorities. The
replevin papers were issued out of Judge
Hnpai's court and the parties were order
ed to appear Saturday morning. Carl S.
Smith appeared for the Volcano Stables
and County Attorney Williams for N. K.
Lyman. At the request of the attorneys
4he case was postponed till Saturday,
February 10th. It is supposed this post
ponement was asked for to give the
Board of Supervisors opportunity to act.

HOARD OF TltADE.
Matters of l'ubllc Importnnco Con
sldorod and Actod Upon.
An enthusiastic meeting of the Hoard
of Trade was held at Fireman's Hall
Friday evening. Meeting was called to
order by Vice-President Scott, and, In
the absence of the secretary, Mr. L.
Turner acted in his stead. Messrs. W. S.
J Wise and R. I. Lillle' were elected to
I. H. Ray asked for Information as to
the construction of a sewer on Waianue
uue street. Mr. Scott had the information
that a sewer would not be constructed at
present on account of the undesirabillty
of tearing up that street and on account
of the fact that the street was already
provided with sewer, as far as the court
On account of a report that $15,000
only of the (20,000 appropriated for
sewer work was to be used, it was sug
gested that the secretary be Instructed to
inquire into the nature of the plans, as
to the location of the sewers aud the
amount to be expended; and upon mo
tion a committee of three, consisting of
Richards, Lindsay and Brughclli, was
appointed for the purpose of obtaining
Brughclli raised the question of the
location and condition of Ponahawal
Street, and or the encroachment upon
Volcano Street by a fence at the inter
section of the two streets; also of the
desirability of having mile posts oti the
principal roads leading out from Hilo
and of sign boards at intersections of
roads. Andrews introduced the follow
ing motion: "That the association
through its secretary call attention of the
Supervisors at their next meeting to the
narrowing of Volcano Street near the
bridge, by the fence which has recently
been placed there, and also to the crooked
and unsightly appearance of the fence on
Ponahawal Street, and suggest the ad
visability of at once moving these fences
to their proper locations; further, that
they be requested to place mile posts
along all roads leading out of Hilo, and
sign posts at the junction of all principal
roads." Motion was seconded by
Brughclli and carried.
Turner called attention to the reduc
tion In the number of street lights and of
policemen, holding that it was false
economy to make such reductions, and
moved that the matter be referred to the
Local Improvement Committee and that
they be authorized to confer with the
Board of Supervisors with the view of
getting the lights restored and the num
ber of police increased. Motion was
carried. Turner also brought up the
question of having abated the sand pile
nuisance near the fish market, and
Richards moved that the Local Improve
ment Committee be instructed to take
action looking toward the abatement of
Andrews moved that hereafter meet
ings be held at 7:30, instead of 8 o'clock,
which was carried aud mcetingadjourued.
