Thk Triiiunk's prediction that
the land department officials would
not grant the requests of the Portu
guese land associations was ,soon
verified, atid the arrows of criticism
shot by the A Sctta at TiiK Tkiii
UNK's article flew wide of the nntk.
What Thk Tkiuunk said would
Tint pineapple cannery proposi
tion for Hilo is about to be fairly
put on foot by the organization of
the company. This enterprise
promises much for Hilo and the
island. With proper management
its possibilities are without limit,
and its promises of benefit to Hilo
and vicinity correspondingly great.
Mr. Andrews deserves credit for
Staying with the proposition and
bringing it to a successful issue.
Attorney-General Peters explains
that the prisoners were removed
from Hilo jail to Oahu prison on
his advice because the jail was
overcrowded and unsanitary, and
because, in compliance with the
law, misdemeanor prisoners and
felons must be separated. The
Territory is just now building a
jail at Hilo to contain those indi
viduals condemned by the courts to
confinement as criminals. The new
jail will not be ready br occupancy
until late in the year and the de
mands to be put upon it will re
quire its completion without delay
thereafter on the plan begun. When
completed the Territory will have
quarters for its prisoners on this
island that will be neither over
crowded nor unsanitary and that
will remove the necessity of incur
ring the expense of removing prison
ers to a distance.
Removal of Prisoners.
The Attorney General explains
removal of a number of the County of
Hawaii prisoners to Honolulu to be fcr
the reason that the Hilo jail was over
crowded and unsanitary; and for the
reason, further, that misdemeanants
could not be quaitered with felons uuder
decisions of the, courts. He said "when
county government was first adopted,
there was a desire expressed by the
officials of the other islands to leave the
prisoners In the outside jails where the
were, in order that their labor might be
available on the roads and elsewhere."
"I advis d," he said, "that the pris
oners be removed from Hilo, and If they
were removed from there it followed that
they had to be removed from all the
islands. They must all be treated alike."
The Honolulu prison has been modi
fied to comply with the decisious of the
courts by having a back door cut through
the walls, providing a separate entrance
for the two classes of prisoners. A terri
torial jute-mill is proposed to employ the
inmates of the Oahu prison.
A special concert was given by the
band at the hotel 'grounds Wednesday
evening, assisted by Wm. Ellis, a well
known musician of Honolulu, who is to
nccompany the Hawaiiau baud on its
mainland tour. Mr. Ellis played the
saxophoue, also sang "Aloha Oe," with
voice nnd instrument accQinpauiment by
the members of the baud, to good elTect.
Bandmaster Carvalho states that the
band will hereafter give two concerts a
week from the baud stand and one a
month each at Waiakca nnd Mooheau
Park. Mr. Carvalho is negotiating to
get back one of his old leading players,
or in his place one tqually good. On
Sunday, April I, the band gives Oeoncert
at Pnhoa, Puna, on the Hilo Railroad.
Will Visit Ureeco.
Demosthenes Lycurgus is expected
back in Honolulu in a month or so from 1
Greece. Upon his return Mr. nnd Mrs. ,
George Lycurgus will go to Greece for I
a couple of years. Geo. Andrews, man-!
aging the Grill, expects to return to '
Greece to settle, upon the return here of
Mr. nnd Mrs. Geo. Lycurgus. Demos
thenes Lycurgus will mamge the Vol-
cano House while Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
Lycurgus are in Greece.

The nimunl Inspection of Company I)
whs held nt the Armory Thursday night
by Mnjor K. C. Van Vliet, U. S. A. The
company made n fine appearance mid nt
the conclusion of the drill the mnjor
congratulated Captain Fcttcrf compli.
mentiug the company on the showing
made. Two men only of the total enrol
ment were absent one sick, and the
other in Honolulu. So high n percent-
ngc of attendance counted for a great
deal, as much importance is attached to
this nt an inspection. The condition of
the equipment was found to be excellent
and was specially complimented, even
the sharp eyes of the major, which saw
everything with suprising readiness, fail
lug to detect eu thing more serious than
n stopper missing from n canteen or
spoon kept back in a haversack.
The inspection proper was nintle with
the company in heavy marching order
and fully accoutred. The inspection was
followed by 11 drill. Tie men were put
through the various militnry evolutions
by Cnplaiu Fetter, Major-Van Vliet and
Lieutenants LudloiTand Ilecrs, in which
a proficiency was shown that was most
creditable to all concerned. On account
of recent changes in the tactics which
the compiuy had had no opportunity to
familiarize itself with, sonic of the evolu
tions were not performed in accordance
with the latest tactics; otherwise the
movements were very well done.
Great credit is due Captain I'etter for
the high standard which the company
has reached in military proficiency.
The baud was present and enlivened
the occasion, anil the inspection was
witnessed by a number of spectators.
After the drill was over the members of
the company enjoyed refreshments in the
Wnlnkcn Social Settlement.
The friends of the Waiakca Social
Settlement will be glad to know that the
work is progressing under the nblc
management of Miss Clara M. Erbcck of
Seattle, who commenced her labors about
the middle of February.
The following items 'from Miss Er-
beck's 1 cport arc of interest as showing
the wotk being done:
Mothers' Meeting, weekly average, 10;
Dispensary, daily average, 13; Sewing
Class, weekly average, 17; Weaving,
weekly average, 17; House
visits, weekly overage, 13; Sunday
School, average, 72.
A Christian Endeavor Society has been
organized with thirteen active members.
The church services 011 Sabbath evenings
are well attended.
That the community has a personal in
terest in the Waiakca work is evident
from the fact that a number of friends
Ucnd a hand" both on the Sabbath and
at some of the weekly classes.
