Active Preparation lu Process
for "Santiago" Production.
Front street lias been laid out
nnd its lines established by the
Board of Public Works, not care
lessly nnd whimsically, but with
full knowledge nnd due considera
tion. The street is located with an
even curve and wide sweep. The
Public Works department has not
stopped at locating this street, but
has taken some of the steps required
toward its full establishment, having
communicated with the property
owners whose property would be
required for the purpose. The re
medy for Front street conditions is
to finish up the work so well begun.
If proceedings have discontinued at
this point, und if the lines of the
street need attention, as it is pre
sumed, the next step should be im
mediately taken, viz., the appoint
ment of a commission to assess
damages. The Board of Public
Works would doubtless proceed
forthwith, should a request be made
b the people of Hilo through the
ilonrd of Supervisors or otherwise.
To do this should require little more
time than would the re-location of
the mauka line of the street where
it will always be objectionable. The
present and future importance of
this our principle bay-front thor
oughfare, no one will deny. It is
laid out eighty feet' in width from
Waiakea to the Wailuku, and
opened through, except for the few
blocks covered with small buildings,
put up as cheaply as possible in
anticipation of this street widening.
The sooner the street is opened
fully, the sooner will improvements
along the street be possible. Put
ting a kink in the street line to
make the street approach a few
shacks will not hasten the day of
improvement along this thorough
fare nor better conditions in that
locality. "Well begun is half
done," proverbially, and. a bun
gling modification ot this street plan
would seem inadvisable when the
work could be as well finished in
completion and perfection.
The Committee on Arrangements hav
ing In charge the production of the war
play "Santiago" at Hilo Armory on the
night of July 4th, are losing no time in
getting down to business. Sub-corn-
'tnltlees have been appointed from mem
bers of Company D. and the Elks, to
look after the details of the performance
and already nearly the entire cast has
been selected. The principal roles will
be undertaken by the Elks Dramatic
Club, while the soldiery and minor
parts necessary to the sucessful produc
tion of the play will be In the hands of
the officers and members of the military
In the battle scenes it is expected
that the entire company will be upon
the stage, and in order to accommodate so
large n number of performers, it is pro
posed to erect n mammoth stage at ttie
tnalcai end of the Armory Hall. This
will leave the seating capacity in the
main nuditorlnm about 500, and the
floor will be arranged upon an incline so
that every seat in the house will enable
the occupier to have an unobstructed view
of the stage.
The platform to be used os a stage
will be erected without delay under the
supervision of E. E. Richards and the
Stage Committee, and, thereafter, the
scenes will be built up by J. M. Herlng
to suit the conditions. The absence of a
permanent stage in the Hilo Armory has
been a matter of much regret by the
military boys, and out of the proceeds
realized from the production of "Sanli
ago", it is probable Company D. will de
vote the greater portion to the construct

receive the signatures of all without dis

statement is, beyond question, a
correct exposition of the law. Such
rents become the property of the
heirs, and, under ordinary circum
stances should, not have been col
lected by the administrator in his
official capacity. In the present
instance, however, the rents seem
to have been so collected under di
rect authority of the widow and
heirs, who have accepted partial
distribution of the amount thus col
lected, apparently sharing with the
administrator, until January nth,
1906, the belief that in making such
collections and including statements
of them in his official reports he
was acting wholly within the scope
of his authority. It would be un
conscionable under the circum
stances to order these items stricken
from the administrator's accounts
and to refuse to allow commissions
thereoii after the amounts thus col
lected have been expended for the
benefit of the estate and after the
heirs and widow have accepted a
distribution of the surplus."
The Court declares the widow
and heirs are estopped from deny
ing, under the circumstances, the
administrator's acts in assuming
charge of the realty. The same
reasoning applies to the payment of
taxes upon the realty and recording
leases of same. Commissions of
Eugene H. Lyman for the collec
tion of rents are regarded as
"double commissions," and disal
lowed. Since the administrator's
disbursements for attorneys' fees
are contested by the widow and
heirs, the fees to Ridgeway & Ridg
way are disallowed. All other dis
bursements and regular commis
sions claimed by the administrator
are allowed, and costs of the various
proceedings, which have taken
place are taxed against the various
parties instituting the same. Clerk
Gurney is appointed commissioner
to make the necessary computa

IRjs had a good sale. The fruit is
not overdone in size and underdone
in quality like the dropsical west
ern varieties; .it rather resembles in
size, rich color and delicate flavor
the New Jersey peach, which is a
favorite kind in the Eastern market.
"It used to be said nnd insisted
on before the small farm movement
forced respect, that peaches could
not be grown here. The writer of
this topic knew better, for he had
himself grown some in a casual
way nnd had come to realize how
well peaches might thrive here if
given n fair chance. What they
needed was more care than is given
to a casual shade tree in a yard
It is astonishing how often snap-
judgment has been taken against
latent fruit industries here by the
experience of a man with one tree
growing on a lawn-. Many a peach
tree which would have yielded well
if given sunshine, fertilizer, irriga
tion and shelter from trades and
konas, has struggled into a decline
when put among other trees on a
grassplot and by such decline h'as
condemned an industry that might
have made money for farmers.
"If a man should set apart ten
acres 01 sanay or gravelly sou 111 a
sheltered valley at a low elevation,
a place where water is handy, it
would be his fault if he did not
have peaches ready for the coast
market a mouth before the coast it
self could raise a crop. But he
would have to be a man who knew
how. He should plant his trees in
rows, as is done in California, and
cultivate them so often that weeds
or grass would have no chance to
exhaust the soil. Where that has
been done in and about Honolulu,
on a small scale, the result is most
satisfactory. Why should it not
be so in other localities of Oahu on
a large scale?"
