J. U. Smith retires fiom the
position of editor of the Herald
after n newspaper career brief and
brilliant. He demonstrated himself
to be an effective wielder of the pen
in the brief space of time allotted to
him in which to display his ability.
Tins editorship of the Hawaii
Herald has been placed by the new
owners in the hands of A. M.
Hums, a newspaper writer of ex
perience recently connected with
the Hawaiian Star, of Honolulu.
The Tribune extends a cordial
greeting to Mr. Burns and hopes
he may find in Hilo a wide enough
field for his abilities.
' Thk improvements to be made on
Front Street are demanded for a
number of different reasons, and
while detracting from the foreign
looking, unique, and therefore inter
esting, appearance of the street, will
make it otherwise more attractive
and convenient for the public.
Obtaining and reserving makai of
the street for park purposes is a
proposition of which the future will
fully demonstrate the wisdom.
Naples, with the curve of the shore
of its bay, famous for beauty, has
no natural advantage over Hilo
with its surroundings and the
similar sweep of shore line of its
bay. The park along this shore
line will go far toward making it
possible for Hilo some day to lay
claim to being among the most
beautiful cities in the world.
Tub Portuguese land associations
deserve the hearty congratulations
of everybody for securing such an
amount of so desirable land as is
allowed them. The eight acres ad
ditional of pasture land is itself
valuable, while the 25 acres of cane
land proved up on, alone would
place each owner in most comfort
able circumstances financially.
There is no such opportunity for
taking up public lands to be found
elsewhere in tue umteu Mates; no
lands to be filed on so productive
in values, and therefore worth so
much. The Portuguese are among
our best citizens and should have
the preference over outsiders that
has been shown them in this mat
ter. That they will industriously
cultivate and improve these lands
there is no doubt. All will join in
congratulations for their good
Tub suggestion of a meeting of
the National Editorial Association
at Honolulu, with a trip to Hilo
and the Volcano as one of the feat
ures, is one containing the greatest
possibilities of benefit to the islands.
The influence represented by the
membership of this association is to
be measured by the power of the
Press in the country, a power sec
ond to none, in that the Press is
the disseminator of news and the
moulder, in large degree, of public
opinion. As an advertising scheme,
it would bring the dispensers of
practically all of current informa
tion to the scene, a fact that alone
would be heralded throughout the
United States, and, for that matter,
the world; and, more important,
would place information concerning
the islands and their attractions
where it would be used with most
effect. The repressntatives of the
Press are broad in their views of
the world, are accustomed to travel,
and it is not beyond the range of
possibility that the invitation from
Honolulu conveyed by Mrs.
Weatherrcd to meet in that city
next February, will be accepted.
Hilo will derive a share of the
benefit in the visit of the newspaper
people, through the Volcano trip,
and, doubtless, the question of
entertainment would be contingent
only upon that of prevailing upon
the Association to meet in the
islands and its members to visit

Now that the Kona side of the
Island is to have its railroad, it is
time Hilo was taking steps to in
terest capital in the construction of
an electric road up the north coast.
The north coast road would traverse
a territory already well developed
and having a large amount of traffic
offering and awaiting the comple
tion of the road, with much addi
tional business to be created by its
construction. Hilo bay affords a
good harbor and outlet for the bus
iness of the road. Nature has
given its advantages and it is up to
us to take advantage of them.

Since his arrival in the islands, Captain
Matson had a cable from his new steamer
the Hilouinn at a point near the entrance
to the Straits of Magellan. The steamer
is due in San Francisco in a few days and
as soon as fitted with oil burners, which
should require not more than two weeks,
will be put on her run as a companion to
the Enterprise between San Francisco,
Hilo and Honolulu. The Hilonlan is a
steamer of about the size of the Enter
prise, but better fitted up and faster. It
is the intention to make some improve
ments in the Enterprise that will increase
her speed. The HJIouian should put In
her appearance at this port by the middle
This being the height of the sugar
season, shipping is active. Handling
sugar makes work for men; and getting
the sugar out of the way is n relief to the
planters. The big steam freighters have
reduced greatly the number of ships
coming to the islands. There are now in
port the ship John Ena loading over
4000 tons for New York; the ship Falls
of Clyde, taking over 3000 tons to Sail
Francisco; the bark Annie Johnson,
carrying about 1800 tons, and the St.
Katherlne, aooo tons, for the coast. Three
Inter-Island steamers, also, were lying in
the bay Sunday, on their regular trips
bringing in sugar from outside planta

road, was in the city Friday. The
improvement on this road is hampered
for want of efficient machinery and is
limited to the capacity of the rock
crusher in operation on the road. This
crusher with five men will turn out one
half as much rock as a more improved
kind of crusher would with three men.
Some difficulty is experienced getting
men for work up there, native Hawaiians
finding it too cool for their comfort.

for subdivision of some Kaumaua land
five miles from Hilo on the Kaumana

FOR IlENEcTT OP 1'UIILIU.
To Clear Popular I'nrk
An entertainment is to be given
in the near future for the benefit of
the public at the expense of no little
time and labor in preparation by
the public spirited citizens having
it in charge.
The object for which this enter
tainment is being given is to pay
off the debt on Moohcau Hall. At
the time the building was erected
the amount given by Admiral
Becklcy and appropriated by the
Legislature was not sufficient', and
in order that the people of Hild
might have a free recreation hall
for open air concerts and dances
the Board of Trade advanced more
than one third of the amount
liven though this sum was not
sufficient to complete the building
as was intended, by enclosing it,
the pavilion has filled a well-defined
want of the people, aud apprecia
tion of it is increasing every day,
as is seen in the large crowds that
fill it on Sunday afternoons when
concerts are held there, and on the
evenings when the band plays
dance music. When the Board of
Trade advanced the necessary
money to build it, it was understood
that the Governor would ask the
Legislature to refund the loan, but
he did not do so. As the organiz
ation has only sufficient income to
meet current expenses it is expected
that the people of Hilo, for the
credit of the town, will back it up
and by their patronage encourage
the Board to continued efforts for
the improvement and development
A Postmnnter In Trouble,
On a warrant issued out of thq
U. S. District Conrt, Honolulu,
Charles B. Wells, postmaster at
Kawaihae, Island of Hawaii, has
been arrested charged with violat
ing Section 4046 of the Revised
statutes of the United States. The
warrant sets forth that he is short
in his postoffice accounts.
Under Postmaster Wells' adminis
tration at Kawaihae the postoffice
was recently burned and most of
the contents destroyed. United
States Postoffice Inspector Hare
went to Kawaihae aud made a
searching investigation of the cause
of the fire. Just what connection
his investigation had with the
arrest is not altogether clear, but it
seems to have resulted in the issu
ance of the warrant. Mr. Wells
has given bonds in the sum of
The postmaster's troubles have
not ended here, for a warrant' was
also issued for his arrest on a
charge of violating the Edmunds
Act. Rose Pokela of Kawaihae
was also arrested on the same
charge. She has put up a bond
for $500. Advertiser.
Will go to Japan.
D. Mackenzie, late a department
manager for Theo. H. Davis & Co.,
and formerly, for a number of
years, mauager of the Hakalau
store, arrived by the Kinau Wednes
day for the purpose of bidding fare
well to his friends on this island.
Mr. Mackenzie goes to Scotland
for a visit to his relatives and after
short sojourn will go to Yokohama,
Japan, where he will engage in
the commission business with Gil
bert Patten, at one-time a resident of
Hawaii, and a brother of H. V.
Patten of this city. Mr. Mackenzie
is visiting at Mr. Patten's in Puueo
and will remain until next Kinau
Teachers' L'rlxo Trip to Hawaii.
Trips to Hawaii, as first prizes in
newspaper popularity contests are
evidently the rage. No sooner has
Honolulu ceased to shed tears at
the departure of the Oregon
Journal's girls than there comes
the announcement that this city
and these Islands will again become
the chief award, this time in an
"educational contest," gotten up
by the Mercury and Herald, two
live newspapers of San Jose, Cal.

FRIEND TO HILO.
Work For National. Editorial Arrc
elation lu IMinnls.
A personal letter to relatives,
written by Mrs. Weatherrcd abottt
her visit to Hilo and trip to the
Volcano, was published in The
Daily Statesman, the leading paper
at Oregon's capital. In it the
writer gives unstinted praise to
Hilo for its entertainment, and the
Volcano trip is given in full detail
and written in glowing colors. In
a letter received in Hilo from Mrs.
Weatherrcd in San Francisco, she
writes: "That grand and glorious
trip will ever stand out iti memory
as the one trip of all ray travels.
A number of my friends have al
ready declared their intentions of
going there this coming winter.
There is only one condition can
keep me away and that is death,
and as I am in good health, also
have a determination to spend some
time at the Volcano in 1907, the
chances are good for my going."
Not a little benefit will result to
Hilo from Mrs. Wcatherred's visit,
as is evidenced by what she says
further in her letter. "My enthu
siasm for the best interests of the
Islands is still at the highest degree.
The Promotion Committee have
given me an invitation to be read
at the Indianapolis National Edi
torial Association in June, and I
thoroughly believe it is possible to
get that great body of editors to
meet in Honolulu next February.
That will, of course, include a
visit to Hilo and the Volcano. If
the Volcano was not to be visited, I
would not feel interested in getting
the Association to meet in Honolulu,
The San Francisco papers have
already mentioned my desires. I
will soon be asking the citizens of
Hilo to co-operate in the matter.
Am sure four hundred people can
ne uousea aim oe leu in some way,
and they are people who have the
money to pay for all the trouble
they cteate. Am going to keep
right after the idea of making the
Volcano a national park."
Bills of a theatrical company an
nouncing a performance to be given
in Hilo, that appeared about town
last week, were an unusualsight.
Such troupes do not often find their
way here. Hilo is not, however,
without its entertainments of far
better character than these travel
ing affairs. There are three on the
tapis now and local actors and mu
sicians find their time pretty well
occupied with rehearsals. The first
to occur will be Robin Hood, given
under the auspices of the Hilo
Boarding School. A debt of $1500
still remains upon the building and
it is expected this .amount may be
materially reduced Irom the pro
ceeds of the entertainment. Re
hearsals are sufficiently far along to
show that the entertainment will be
of a hith order dramatically and
musically. At a somewhat later
date a vaudeville performance will
be given, the proceeds to be used in
paying off indebtedness on Mooheau
Hall in the' park, where large num
bers of the people enjoy music,
recreation and sports. This per
formance is intended to be of the
side-splitting, comic kind, where
anyone of a number of features will
alone be worth the price of admis
sion. About July Fourth the
Elk's are planning to give some
kind of an entertainment.
Need For a Coroundo.
Secretary Wood of the Promotion
Committee is quoted by the Adver
tiser as saying, in reference to the
probabilities of more and better
steamers being put on the route
between San Francisco and the
"All new American vessels that
can be crowded into the lines are
needed to take care of the increas
ing tourist traffic. In five years
from now Honolulu is to be one of
the greatest tourist resorts in the
world, and everybody will be bene
fited. There's millions in the
tourist business and we've got the
goods to offer. There may be some
need then for a Coronado or a Del
Monte or a Ponce de I,eon hotel
resort for this city."
