Tin? logging of the koa forests is
ito he conducted, vc are informed,
along the most improved lines laid
down By the new science of Fores
try. But for this fact we of this
island might view with alarm the
entrance of the saw mill into our
forests. The effects of timber growth
' upon rain fall, and more especially
upon the flow of rivers, is now well
understood. The growth of timber
with its undergrowth conserves the
moisture that feeds our streams,
regulating and making more con
stant their flow. Our timber belt
above removed, and our numerous
streams would cease to be as they
are. The whole timber belt could
be made to yield a great amount of
valuable timber, however, without
material damage if logged accord
ing to approved forestry methods.

lulu is enjoying the blessed privilege
of every American citizen, viz: that
if free discussion. It is their in
alienable right to devote what
ever time there may be to spare,
after attending to troubles at home,
in this manner. The right of free
discussion is not to be denied, and
its exercise will not be objected to
so long as it is fair and ends in dis
cussion. Any assumption of infali
bility or undue exercise of authority
or personal influence, Hilo people
will be likely to take exceptions to,
Tim closing of another year of
work is signalized this week by ap
propriate exercises in each of the
schools. The educational needs of
the city are well met. The terri
torial schools, Hilo Boarding school
and Catholic schools, each hi its
own field, is doing its work well.
The- High school has been somc
.what hampered during this its first
year by inadequate quarters, a de
fect being remedied by the construc
tion of a fine new 'building. The
work of the Hilo Boarding school
can hardly be too highly commend
ed. The very first and original in
dustrial training school, the idea of
its founder has been siezed upon,
and schools of the kind are now
found everywhere aud the useful
ness of the school of this character
is proved. Hilo's schools and in
stitutions of mental and manual
training are objects of local and
territorial pride. ,
The Hand Benefit.
The benefit given at the Armory on
Thursday night by the band for Chas.
Caceres was fairly well patronized. The
proceeds were upwards of $60, and as ex
penses werejlght, about $50 was netted.
The band furnished a number on the
program, and between the dances Mr.
Caceres played piano selections. His
execution is bf illiant, and playing sur
prising when the disadvantages under
which he labors are considered, in being
compelled, on account of imperfect vis
ion, to learn the music by reading raised

A small party of tourists arrived by the
Kinau Wednesday and went to the Vol

p-rty remained at the Volcano several
days, some planning to return via
Hilo and others by the steamer
Mauna Loa. The following compose the
party: Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Chlllman,
Wellington, N. Z.; Miss A. Brooks, Hono

The incorporation papers of the Hilo
Pineapple Co. sent to the Registrar ot
Public Accounts two moutlfy ago still re
pose peacefully in the office of some terri
torial official. Secretary Vicars made in
quiry two weeks ago as to why they had
not been returned and received the reply
that they were In the hands of the At
torney General. Whether or not they
were held up for some reason is not
known. This does seem a little slow
even for Honolulu.

Eben P. Low has seen A. Gart

with a plea for allowing the Edi

the Kohala ditch opening. Besides
a view of the ceremony of turning

about sending the picture man to

Land Associations Mny Not I'lo Up
l.nnds For Future'.
"The Hilo settlement associations
will all be turned down," said
Land Commissioner Pratt yester
day. "We do not propose to bind
trie government in advance to give
lands that arc still under lease to
any particular persons. In other
words, we do not propose to tie the
hands of the government."
This is otic of the matters that
Commissioner Pratt went over with
Governor Carter yesterday and the
settlement associations are the later
ones. The conclusion reached was
what might have been anticipated.
It seems indeed, that there has
been a kind of settlement associa
tion mill started in Hilo and around
there since the success that was
achieved by the Osorio and other
associations in having lands as
signed to them. How much of
this settlement business is bona
fide, and how much of it is for
somebody's profit, is a matter that
is yet to be determined. The
government, at the events, will not
consent to tie up at this time lands
that are still uuder leases, some
of which will not expire during the
life of the present government.
The lands, at all events, arc pay
ing good revenues now. Whether
it would be wise to deprive their
present holders of the chance at
them in the future, and promise to
turn them over 'to a new set of
masters is a debatable point,
there may be other citizens besides
the members of the present settle
ment association moreover, who
will want a chance at the holdings
when the leases expire, and those
citizens have just good right, or
would have, as the association
There are a number of applica
tions for lands in the hands of the
Land Commissioner, among them
being that of Waiina Association,
which asks to have set aside for it
the lands of'Kawainui, now under
lease to the Ouomea Sugar Com
pany. This association has nine
members, all Portuguese, aud they
ask for 13 1-2 acres each. The
present lease expires in 1908.
The members of the Antoue de
Souza Settlement Association ask
for thirty acres each of the 210
acres of land in North Hilo known
as Kaurlakuea. There are seven
members in this company, aud the
land they want is leased to the
Pepeekeo Sugar Company.- The
present lease expires in June, 1906.
The J. M. Kauhi Settlement
Association wants the Kailie lauds,
between Papaikou and ' Ouomea,
now leased to the Onomea Sugar
Company, tue lease expiring in
1910. There are sixteen "mem
bers of this association, seven of
them Portuguese, one American
and the balance Hawaiiaus. Ad

A Portuguese at Kalwiki, who has a
half acre of coffee trees, recently sold his
season's crop to the Hilo Coffee Mill, re
ceiving $80 therefor. He was entirely
satisfied with the proceeds from this half
acre and considered it easy' money. He
had more land in coffee but took some
advice that his experience has shown was
poor, nd trimmed the remainder down,
resulting in their dying. He greatly re
grets his mistake in thus trimming down
his trees, as those from which he gathered
this coffee are the ones he allowed to
grow. They have reached the height of
fifteen feet or more, are doing well and
