J. Whuulock Maksh - Editor
D. W. Maksh - Business Malinger.
J. T. Stackijk, who with Inst
week's issue retired from the
editorship of the Herald, 1ms made
many friends in Ililo, who regret
his withdrawal from the position he
has so long and ahly filled.
John U. Smith has hcen chosen
as editor of our esteemed democratic
contemporary the Hawaii Herald, a
position made vacant by the resig
nation of J. T. Stacker. Mr. Smith
is a man of versatility and well
known ability and the Tkiiiunk
congratulates the Herald on secur
ing his services.
Tins new proposition mnde by
the Territorial land board to the
Portuguese is certainly fair to them.
It appears to be an attractive offer.
The scheme of having villages in
each tract, taken in connection with
the new policy of the Olaa and
Wainaku plantations to plot town
sites where laborers may live in
their own homes, marks the Le
ginning of an industrial change in
Somb time ago the Honolulu
Advertiser made the following sug
"Honolulu and Hilo ought to
unite in some fitting cebbration of
the doubling of their first-class
passenger and mail inter-communi-
catton now assured to start on ttie
first of July."
Judge Dole said of his recent
visit to the island of Hawaii:
"Residents of Honolulu, as a
general rule, have no idea of the
positive changes of climate which
can be had in these islands. Where
I spent last week there is a steady
temperature at this season even
cooler than that of San Francisco.
Actual frost occurs and water
freezes over night.
"The weather was delightfully
fine durit'g my stay, with no rain
worth speaking about.
"Few Honolulu people realize
what a bracing climate can be en
joyed without leaving the islands."
Now the Tkiiiunk enthusiastic
ally seconds the suggestion of the
Advertiser, and would suggest an
excursion to this island for the
numerous residents of Honolulu
who have never been here. They
ought all to come and learn some
thing about this country. That,
we believe, would be the most
effective cure for the "knockers."
The repeated statements of tourist-i,
that they are advised in Honolulu
against making the trip, establishes
the fact beyond reasonable doubt
that individuals answering this
description are to be found in Ho
nolulu. Honolulu papers are not
among the number, for they have
intelligence; they are not the tour
ists who have been here. The in
fluences that are working against
the Hilo trip are ignorance and
special interests. The islands have
many attractions for the tourist,
and every resident of Honolulu
should know that the Volcano of
Kilauea is the chief, and is to be at
least kept upon the list.
Initiation nud llunuot.
Sixteen new members were initiated by
Court Mauna Kea, 8854, Order of Forest
ers, at theii hall Monday evening. After
the initiation ceremonies nil adjourned
to the bau(uet table where the following

Entertained by tlilo reoplo Visit
The party of Portland Dally Journal
young lady excursionists irotn Oregon
arrived on the Kluau Wednesday. They 1
were entertained during their brief slay,
by the people of Ililo at n reception and
ball in the Armory; and at a supper given
by some of the young men. The late ar-
rival of the steamer spoiled part of the '
program, a drive about Ililo having been
arranged tor, tnnttiie visitors tuigiit sec
some of the natural attractions Ililo has
The parly were met nt the wharf by a
committee and driven to The Peacock
hotel and from there were escorted to
Demosthenes Cafe for dinner. Though
but directly from the ocean steamer,
every member of the parly attended the
ball nnd did the honors of the occasion
with a grace and spirit that their state
might well be proud of. The hall was
specially decorated for the occasion, the
w.lls draped with lings nnd bunting and
adorned with palms nnd other tropical
foliage; and the greenery of the musi
cians' platform was effectively illumin
ated with vari-colored liicntidctcent.
The program was gotten up with an
attempt nt special propriety. It bore the
motto oltlie Male or Oregon, "Wtt Volal
J'ronis;" "She Piles With Her Own
Wings," over a view of Cocoanut Island.
The list of names of the visitors was
printed upon the program ns follows;
Mrs. Udj th Tozier Weatherrcd, chaperon;
Miss Mollie Proebstel, L l.runde; Miss
Katie Nash, Li Grande; Miss Minnie S.
Phillips, Portland; Miss Sallic Mndignn,

ville; Miss ljdnn Pirslcy, Uoseburg;
Miss Uffie May King, Walla Wnlla,
Wush ; Miss Florence Heavreu, Van
couver, Wash.; Miss Kinilte Crosscu, The
Dalles. Following was the inscription:
"Prom -wnere roils ijic Oregon nnu Hears
no sound sac it own ua-mings-, 10 me
abode of the goddess Pele." Some
chlnook jargon, which the young ladies I
were supposed to speak fluently but did I
not, headulonc page, us follows: "Nesikaj
chaco si-oh inati salt chuck, pe ncsika j
hy-ns ticky initlite eopa mesikn ciuon-
asam," "We come from n very long uls
tince ncross the ocenn, we would like to
stay always." On the other page "Vn
Matt kc Ea o kn Aitl.i I ka Pono," the
motto oil the coins of the Hawaiian
royalty, and that of King Knmclmmelia
III., "The foundations of the government
are laid 111 righteousness "
The Lei Miuno Glee Club furnished
music and refreshments were served.
At the conclusion of the first part of
the program, the ladies sang the follow
ing song composed by Mrs. Kdylli Tozier
Weatherred, the voices blending well,
music and sentiment being heartily ap
plauded: (Tune "My Honnie")
"Here's to the lnnd of Hawaii,
The beautiful Isle fai nway;
Where the sunshine, fruits nnd flowers,
Make life one long happy day.
Sleep on, dream on,
Hawaii, Hawaii for me.
"To one mid nil of the Island,
The Journal's best greetings we bring,
And when we return to our homeland,
Hawaii's best interests we'll sing.
Sleep on, dreaui on,
Hawaii, Hawaii for me."
The following sentiment was, also,
spoken in concert:
"Here's to the Hilo bachelors,
The Journal girls came to meet;
We tliink ou are all quite handsome,
And, say just n wee bit sweet.
And here's a smile to greet you
And a heart for one and nil;
IUitwchope the gobblins will cat you
If 011 are still bachelors this fall.
The dancing program concluded, the
ladies were invited to supper at the De
mosthenes Cafe an enjoyable feature
added to the program. At the festal
board Mrs. Weathered, speaking on be
half of the ladies, expressed great appre
ciation of the reception the Hilo people
had accorded them and of the good time
the party had enjoyed.
THK VOLCANO TRIP.
Seven o'clock Thursday morning found
the party aboard the train of the Hllo
Railroad Company; destination, volcano.
Iu the volcano party, besides the Ore
gon ladies, there were J. J. Downing, of
Honolulu, excursion conductor, and J. II.
McSwaiusnii, rcpicscuting the Honolulu
Ilulletin; nlso J. U. Smith nnd J. W.
Marsh, of the Oregon colony in Hilo.
The first visit to the volcano is the trip
of u life-time to any one, however familiar
with the wonders of nature, nud the ride
by tram through cane fields, banana
groves and tropical woods was full of in
terest and surprises for the northern visit
ors. The change nt Glenwood from curs
to stage adds novelty and interest to the
trip. The nine miles of staging up
through the fern forests, with Mnunti

opinion that the volcano should be made
