Under the heading "Managerial
Sympathy," the Honolulu Friend
pays a tribute of praise to the plan
tations managers on the 'Hilo side
of the Island for co-operation in
the religious work being clone. It
"The splendid advance achieved
by our Japanese evangelists on the
trade wind coast of Hawaii Island
from Kohala to Olaa is in large
measure due to the hearty sympathy
and co-operation, ol the plantation
managers throughout that region.
Beginning with Olaa nnd running
to Hawi in Kohala, there is a noble
succession of Christian managers.
Such men as Messrs. Watt of Olaa.
Kennedy of Waiakea, Scott of
Wainaku, Moirof Papaikou, Pullar
of Hononni, Gibb of Paauhau.
Gjerdrum of Honokaa, Forbes of
Kukuihaele, Hall of Niulii. Kay of
Halawa, Deacon of Kohala, Renton
of Union Mill, and Hind of Hawi,
in connection with whose planta
tions our.preachcrs are laboring, are
vitally interested in what these
evangelists are doing. These man
agers are not afraid to let their
'Japanese employes know what' they
arc in sympathy with, Christian
work. Some of them drop in upon
a Japanese service now and then to
show their interest and also take
no little pains' to find' out -what the
evangelists are doing. This is a
double aid to the preachers. It
keeps them faithful and. gives them
great encouragement. The Japanese
laborers also, accustomed as they
are in their country to seeing their
leading countrymen indifferent to
religion, are profoundly impressed
when they find that in America
men of influence -are deeply inter
ested in religious work. That it te
possible for a busy manager to let
his Christian light shine in his.
treatment of his men and in the
cordial and open help rendered to
the pastors and evangelists of various-
nationalities within his planta
tion, is -made very evident by a,
growing number of earnest Christian
men throughout the Territory.
God's richest blessing is sure to
rest upon all such noble work."
L'kango Precinct llouitdnrlcs.
In the Forth 'District of Hono
lulu, Chairman Robertson of the
Territorial Committee of the
Republicans, is ready with his sug
gestions for changes of precinct
boundaries. The basis to which
he has brought the district will
undoubtebly give each voter a
chance to cast his' ballot, the appro
tionmeut being approximately 250
voters to a precinct.-and will in all
likelihood be adopted. There has
been no change of these, precincts in
The Island of Maui is to be
taken up next by Govenor Atkin
son. In this, the Third Represen
tative District, there -have ibeen
various recommendations for pre
cinct changes received from Repub
licans, but none from either Demo
crats or Home Rulers.
After Maui is disposed of Hawaii
will -be taken up. In the First
district, some changes-will have to
be made in Olaa precinct, caused
by the County Act. Some changes
have ialso been suggested in 'the
Second Representative District on
the big Island. It is desired, how
ever, Jo ihave, any suggestions that
are 'to be submitted as to changes
forwarded to the Secretary's office
as early as possible.
In the reapportionment that ' has
been arranged for. Kauai ,and Nii
hau, there .have been some changes.
The old Fourth precinct, for
instance, has been made into two,
a new 'Fourth and Fifth, and this
imoves all the others aloug.
'Extending Cable System.
By the end of April the Pacific
Commercial Cable company expects
to send messages entirely through
its own cable in the Pacific ocean
from San -Francisco to Shanghai
and Japan via' Honolulu, .Midway
and Guam. A -steamer is now
laying a cable from Guam to Japan
and another is to be laid later on
between -Manila and Shanghai.
The entire system is to be du
plexed. That -is, messages can be
sent both ways through ja siagle
cable, at the samcitirae.

ship ' that could run away from a
subway express train and race over.
the seas from New York to Queens
towtHn three days eighteen hours,
or there and back in a week, will
be an accomplished :fact when the
Cuuard Line's turbine vessel Lusit
ania ,aud Mauritania begin their
ocean express traffic next winter.
They will be the longest boats in the
world by almost 100 feet, broader
than any of the German leviathahs,
and at the same time possessing
the shapely lines of .greyhounds
like the Lucania.
The Lusitania is' building on the
Clyde .and the Mauritania on the
.Tyuc. Thoy are expected to
develop a speed of thirty-one statute
miles an hour, making it possible
to cover the distance from New
York to jQueenstown in three days
"and 'ciiihteen hours. The new
turbine steamers are 700 feet long
between perpendiculars ,or 800 feet
counting the stern overhang.
The new Cunard twins will carry
300 first-class, 400 second-class and
about 1000 third class passengers.
The interior furnishings and
appointments will be the finest of
of any ships in-the .world. All the
woodwork -will be of mahogany,
walnut and satiuwood. There will
be a system :of elevators carrying
passengersupaud Uown the greater

Over .fifteen hundred of the top
.minnows brought here to cat mos
quito larvae' have been distributed
in Various ponds and there are ten
thousand on hand for any persons
kvlio may have a chance to put
them.- The breeding of the fish
here' is now a completely assured
success, and on all sides it is con -ceded
that there .has been a great
reduction in the number of mos
quitoes 'here since the fish came.
iThe last lot of fish sent out by
Captain (Paul 'Smith, who is look
ing after the auti-mosquito work
of.lheiBoard of.he.alth, .was 600 for
a ijudd street pona. it nas been
found that the introduction of the
fish in ,any .bodyi of water quickly
reduces the number of mosquitoes
in its vicinity.
Only,abouti40oof the fish were
brought here originally. From
this, number enough Jiave been
secured to enable the Board to have
ponds stocked with ten thousand
or more for distribution now.
The mosquito evil, in the form
of an 'almost intblerable pest, as it
was some years ago, is believed to
bda thing of the past. Star.
