ijnteml at the Fostofiicc at Hilo, Ha

PUBMSIIItD EVHRV TOUSDAV.
J. Wiikblock Marsh - Editor
V. W. Marsh - Business Manager.
Tint suggestion that Kilauea be
made a national park meets with a
unanimous response in its favor.
The idea, after all a most natural
one, was published first by the
Tribuw, and was made by the
leader of the Oregon party, recent
visitors at the volcano.
If the Tribune should, as the
Herald alleges it does, advertise
itself as the "brightest, newsiest
and most up-to-date weekly on the
island, the fact would bear out the
statement. The Tribunk. there
fore, denies tliat it is possessed of
the two-thirds of "All Gaul," con
cerning which the Herald quotes
the late J. Caesar. It is too high an
estimate of our real estate holdings.
THE CORRECT VIEW.
The Honolulu Advertiser under
the caption "Knocking The Vol
cano" estimates very justly the
. value of Kilauea as an attraction.
"Complaint is still made about
the habit of certain Honolulu
people of warning tourists against
the volcano trip. Formerly lrotel
clerks were the chief offenders,
but they have been better trained
of late. It is in society now that
tourists are most likely to meet
the volcano "knocker," who as a
rule, is 0 most respectable person,
advice from whom carries weight.
"The volcano?" he says, with lifted
eyebrows, "the volcano? My dear
sir, don't attempt to go there.
The sea passage is very bad, the
way up is rough and you don't see
anything worth while when you
"The general interests of Hawaii
as a resort have suffered much
from this libel, not only because it
has shortened the stay of tourists
in the territory, but because it has
deprived this class of people of one
of their strongest incentives to
recommend the islands to others
after they return home. One who
has seen the majestic laboratory of
nature at Kilauea nevsr tires of
talking about it. Our volcano,
sleeping or waking, is what the
late and widely-traveled Charles
Nordhoff called "one af the seven
wonders of the world," It is to
the North Pacific what Niagara is
to the East, what the pyramids are
to Egypt, what Yosemite and the
Yellowstone are to Western Amer
ica, what the Himalayas are to
Darjeeling, what Fujiyama is to
Nippon and what the Acropolis is
to Athens. To see Hawaii and
leave the volcano out is to miss the
best material attraction we fia'Syj to
offer. The European who goes to
Buffalo and does not see Niagara
and the American who goes to
Rome and visits nothing outside
the hotel and cafes of the modern
city, cheats himself in the same way
that a tourist does who comes to
Honolulu and does not see the
abyss of Kilauea and its environ
ment of lava, sulphu' and steam.
"The stories bout rough sea
aud land trips are based, where
pure inventiveness is not the found
ation, upon hardships that have
been abated. Before the steamer
Kinau was remodeled and supplied
with bilge keels, the passage to
Hilo, the port of Kilauea, was
not always a thing of joy; but now
the Kinau affords a steadier ride
and people who journey on her
have no cause to feel that they
have been misled. A railroad
reduces the stage trip up the beauti
ful volcano road to a few miles and
people who take it arrive in
good shape at the comfortable Vol
cano House, glad that they came
and enthusiastic over the ride
through such novel scenes and in
a bracing climate.
"These are the unadorned truths
about the volcano .trip and people
who make it their business to dis-
pute them are conscious or uncon
scious enemies of Honolulu as well
as of big island." Advertiser.
Tin Portuguese land associations
hold out for a greater individual
allotment of land. In view of the
fact that a plenty of people, Amer
ican citizens from the mainland,
stand ready to take these lands on
the terms offered; that five acres of
cane laud is all that any individual
unaided can care for; and to the
further fact that the administration,
to whose influence this policy ol
colonizing these lauds is due, ad
vocated a ten-acre allotment, the
prospects of securing an increase iu
the amount from twenty acres to
thirty-five acre3, would seem to be
Within the territory of the
United States, and upon our own
island, is the greatest volcano of its
kind, recognized everywhere as
one of the wonders of the world,
Kilauea. It is eminently proper
and in line with national policy
that this volcano and its environs
should be in the keeping, and
under the care of the federal gov
ernment, for the benefit of thi
pcople and in order that its sur
roundings may be both protected
and improved. The people of the
United States demand the preserva
tion by the government of all such
localities containing nature's
wonders. The President of the
United States in his last message to
Congress, earnestly called attention
to the importance of the subject,
mentioning the Grand Canyon of
the Colorado and Niagara Falls,
among others. He said: "There are
certain mighty, natural features of
our land which should be preserved
in perpetuity for our children and
our children's children." It is
certain that the Hawaii National
Park idea would meet the approval
of the administration.

Not All Satisfactory.
A meeting of the members of the
Portuguese associations, applicants for
Hakalau lauds, was held Sunday, at which
it was decided to communicate by letter
with Land Commissioner Pratt, as he
suggested, stating the reasons for asking
for a greater allowance of land per capita.
The associations were originally given
till the 14th lust, to state their intentions.
The reasons assigned by the Portuguese
applicants for lands, as given, are sub
stantially, that the lands are worn out by
long cultivation need rest, fertilization;
that, on this account, a man with a large
family can not support himself on the
area proposed, as he will, be required to
do under the bona fide residence inter
pretation of the land department.
The associations ask that the individ
ual allotment be made 3:85 acres. They
suggest that the purchase price of aurf-
cultural land should in 110 case be higher
man 912,50 an acre,

Transfer of Prisoners.
Seventeen criminals and four misde

Friday's Kinau from Hilo jail to Hono

One of the manv cood thines
that' have come of the Advertiser's
small farm teaching is a marked
Increase in egg-production. When
the crusade began, Honolulu, in
the main, was eating cold-storage
eggs. The wiseacres all sai I that
poultry-raising could not succeed
here; that between sorehead, roup,
cholera, cats nnd the mongoose,
chickens would soon die off. The
Advertiser's sorehead cure did
away with the worst of the disease
and the rest succumbed to good
care of the fowls. Owing to a pre
valent tick, the mongoose has
lately had all he could do to keep
himself alive. As a result the pro
duction of eggs has become so large
that the price has dropped to 35
cents a dozen for the best and is
likely to stand at 25 a year hence.
Gradually in this aud other respects
the Territory is emancipating itself
from the California market. If the
Legislature would relorm inter
island freight rates, as it has the
power to do, and let in Maui, and
Hawaii cabbages, cauliflower, as
paragus, celery and the like, we
should soon be self-supporting.
