SURVEY OF RKKF ANI IIAKIIOIt.
11 Local Engineer, Lieut. Klntttery
A. B. Locbenstein is to make the
government survey of Hilo bay and the
reef, under the direction of Lieut. Slattcry
officer in charge of U. S. Engineers,
stationed at Honolulu. This survey of
the reef is to be made to furnish data
upon which to work in deciding upon
the location of the breakwater, Cost of
construction, etc. Such a breakwater
built upon the outer edge of the reef will
bring Reed's bay within its protection,
and made a harbor of considerable larger
area than a breakwater built on the inner
reef would do, thdiftU the expense ol
construction would undoubtedly be
greater by a considerable. It is under
stood this survey is to be made in June.
SHOULD HE EXECUTED.
Opinion of Attorney for Korean
Honolulu, T. II., April 17, 1906.
Acting Governor Atkinson this morn
ing declined to give out for publication a
letter from Attorney Carl Smith of Hilo,
counsel for the defense in the Korean
murder cases, in which Smith takes the
position that his clients ought to be
hanged. The letter is regarded as a
somewhat extraordinary one, coming
from the counsel for the defendants, and
the Acting Governor was inclined to re
gard it as confidential. It was, however,
read during the conference with the Rev.
Wadttian yesterday, and was written to
Deputy Attorney General Milverton, in
reply to a letter from the latter, asking
Smith if he had Anything to say on the
subject of clemency. Star.
Superior Water System.
Hilo's water system is a source of great
satisfaction to the residents of the city.
Honolulu's system has been so affected
by drought the past few weeks that fire
engines were employed to pump water
from the lower levels into the reservoir,
On account of the fact that the water
supply for Hilo originates in a cold,
limpid stream springing from the solid
rock, whose flow is never in the slightest
degree affected either by heavy rainfall
or drought, and that in its derivation
from the rock and distribution to the
consumer it is so protected as to maintain
its absolute purity; this city has a water
system that in these important particulars
can challenge comparison with any sys
llcntli of Police Ofllcer.
Portugese Officer, Joe Cook, died
suddenly at 2 a. m. Sunday of heart
disease. Officer Cook was 'on duty al
day Saturday apparently in perfect health.
His wife was awakened by his groans
and aroused the house and Dr. Irwin was
summoned, but death had ensued before
his arrival. Officer Joe Cook is an old
kamaaina on Maui, has served several
years on the Hilo police force, and was
a 'good and faithful officer who will be
missed by the sheriff's department. The
funeral was held at 4 p. m. Sunday at the
Portugese Protestant church, services
being cohdudted by (he pastor, Rev. Sllva,
and attended by the police 'force in a
Town Will Spring Up.
It is the intention of those Who will
file on the Hakalau lands to build homes
and begin actual resldcnce'upon the land
within three months after the opening
up of the lands. As the law allows a
year's time in whleh to begin actual resi
dence, these settlers give proof by so do
ing of acting in good faith. The members
of the Osorio Association, applicants for
the Kaiwiki tract, number about thirty,
and most all are men having families, so
that a town of some size will spring up
at once as soon as they get 'possession.
This town will be located on Kaiwiki
point,1 and some of the leading members
of the association favor naming it Atkiu
souville. S. 8. Enterprise Arrives.
The steamer Enterprise arrived from
San Francisco Sunday noon. She vails
for Honolulu Tuesday night, and the
date of her returunnd date of sailing for
San Francisco is not yet decided. The
report received from Honolulu that the
Matson steamers 'would load nt Seattle
could not be confirmed at the local office.
Message From J. W. Mason.
A message was received at 6 p, m.
Sunday by the Hilo 'Mercantile Co. from
Mr. Mason, the president of the com
pany, who with his family were Sup.
posedly in San Francisco at the time of
the earthquake. The message states that
all are safe. It was sent from Oakland
and despatched from the Cliff House
Two Performances or' itoblu Hood.
Owing to the fact that various outside
parties have made the request that "The
"Merry Adventures of Robin Hood" be
f;tven on two successive evenings, those
n charge of the melodrama ha,ve decided
to give the entertainment on both Friday
and Saturday evenings, May 4th and jth.

Intor-lsland Company Wants Inde
The presence of several of the directors
of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation
Co. in Hilo the past week co Incidentally
with that of W. F. Dillingham and L. A.
Thurston, of the Hilo Railroad Co., ap
peared very significant and indicated
"something doing" in transportation
The Inter-Island Steamship people
were here for the purpose of furthering
their plan of removing from the railroad
wharf to the government wharf, and,
presumably, the railroad men were here
to see what could be done about keeping
them in their present location.
A meeting of several of the leading
business men of Hilo, at which Messrs.
uuungiiam ami mursion were present,;
was held at the government wharf on
Thursday afternoon, as the Inter Island
directors desired to hear the objection, If
any there was, to the removal of the
Inter-Island business to government
As no serious objection was raised, and
as the Inter-Island Company is dissatis
fied with present accommodations, and
with their new boat will need better
wharfage facilities, it is likely that steps
will be taken toward the rebuilding of
the government wharf Tor the exclusive
Use of the steamship c6uipany. The re
building of this wharf was authorized by
Governor Carter, plans and specifications'
prepared and bids called for, but Acting
Governor Atkinson coming into office,
proceedings were stopped, for some rea
son not fully understood.
The Inter-Island directors in Hilo and
in attendance, upon the 'meeting were:
J. A. Kennedy, president, and Messrs.
Aug. E. Dreier, J. M. Dowsett, G. N.
Wilcox and Attorney W. O. Smith.
New Question Raised.
The two Japanese arrested for removing
goods from Hamada's store were brought
up before Judge Hapai for trial ou the
charge of larceny and were found guilty
and fine'd (too aud costs, each. Attorney
Carl Smith then began habeas corpus
proceedings, demanding the release of
the defendants on the grouuds that they
were eutitled to a jury trial, which they
had asked for and beju denied. The
hearing of the case was postponed till
Thursday, pending the receipt of instruc
tions from the Attorney General's de
partment to the county attorucy. The
decisiou on this point is awaited with
much interest by the sheriff's office and
all interested in court proceedings.
Will Complete the System.
Foreman Foster resumed work 011 the
construction of the sewer system on
Wednesday, after several days' suspension.
Word was received from 'Honolulu that
the doubtful $1800. belonged to construc
tion and not to engineering, and was
available for the completion of the work.
The total appropriation was (20,000; of
this, fsioo was 'expended in the purchase
ofplpe,'$i3oo isselaslde to pay forengin
eering, and the balance, (13,100, is to be
applied on construction. The amount is
believed to- be sufficient to complete the
system as planned, aud the foreman
expects'to have the work 'finished by the
first of May.
