since that date. The corner was then

to be continuous woods, except for St.
Joseph's Church. Hilo was already a

A HATTER OF HEALTH

(jnestlon of Materials.
Regarding the proposition to put up a
high school building and the intention
of the authorities to use brick or stone,
find old resident expresses doubt as to
the wisdom of usiug such materials. In
his long residence here he has seen some
of the exhibitions afforded by Halemau-
man. These performances of the volcanos
give old timers a feeling of uncertainty
as to what they may do and of expect
ancy that they nitty sometime repeat
their performances. Among the stunts
performed was, years ago, giving the
earth a shaking such as would injure a
stone building. Twenty thousand dollars,
this gentleman argues, would put up a
magnificent wooden building that could
not be injured by possible earthquake
and that would be more comfortable in
this climate. It might be said on the
other hand that brick or stone buildings
are more enduring, more imposing in
appearance, somewhat less liable to de
struction by fire, better in sanitary respects.
Fewiocalltles take earthquake possibilities
into account, as, for example, Sau Fran
cisco, where great damage was done to
brick buildings by an earthquake in its
United Stutcs Court.

bis opinion that a regular, statutory,
prescribed session was unneccssaty inas
