HIGH SCHOOL FOR HILO.
Work has at last commenced ou
the Htlo High School building and
the terms of the contract for its
construction call for its completion
by the middle of December. The
new High School building has a
history already, though the build
ing has not yet fully materialized.
Its history begins back some years
nud is a story of procrastination,
circumlocution and delay. "Out
of sight, out of mind" has appear
ed to hold true of the territorial
officials in this case. Hilo people
who have grown sceptical mean
while, as a result about the pro
position, and have come to look
upon a high school building as a
matter of doubtful possibility, can
now reassure themselves, the build
ing is actually to be a realized fact.
While it will not be completed in
time for the commencement of
work at the re-opening of school,
there will be only a few wecka of
waiting, which can be well endnred
in anticipation of the comforts and
conveniences in prospect in the
new building. Practically, .the
work of the High School will be
little affected and to all intetnts and
purposes the building may be con
sidered as occupied from the begin
ning of the year.
Assured of a building, the work
of high school grade and character
so well conceived of and under
stood by the principal and his
assistants and carried on under
difficulties during the past year,
will be performed. Thus Hilo
will possess what it should have,
a high school that will be a
credit to the- city nd a valuable
educational asset to the community.
The statement that it should be
patronized by the people of Hilo
and of this Island follows directly
and obviously. Many children
have gone away from Hilo every
year to Honolulu and elsewhere.
This twill be unnecessary in the
future, Parents should consider
well the opportunities for education
here before sending their children
to Honolulu. They should remember
that their own town will have the
coming year a high school in the
broadest sense of the word; that
full high school courses of instruc
tion will be begun in September,
that the transfer from the old to
new quarters during the first term
will cause no ssrious interruption
to instruction. Hilo will now have
to ofler educationally the same ad
vantages as the high schools and
academies elsewhere afford. Local
pride will prompt people to give it
loyal support and patronage.
Tiiekk is no doubt that the Ko
hala ditch, increasing the produc
tiveness of thousands of .acres of
cane laud and being thousands
more under cultivation, will prove
to be $600,000 well iuvested.
Nevertheless the enterprise of the
company carrying the work to suc
cessful completion is commendable
It was a great undertaking to con
struct an acqueduct carrying seven
ty million gallons of water daily,
fourteen miles in length, through
forest and among high pali, requir
ing nine miles of tunnel.
If "the greatest benefactor to the
human race is the man who makes
two blades of grass to grow where
one grew before," ns some one has
said, the promoters of this enter
pris are entitled to a pedestal or a
niche in the Hawaii Temple of
Fame in making the lauds of Ko
hala to so blossom as the rose.
This country still has undevelop
ed resources, and opportunities
await the enterprising benefactor
who is looking for a good invest
ment. Mrs. L. P. Walsh, who was appointed
librarian at a recent meeting of thetrustees
of the Hilo Library, declines to accept
the position. William Hill Is acting in
the capacity of librarian nud will con
tinue in the position until other arrange
wen Is are made.

The celebration at Hoolulu Park this
year is going to ue 111c greatest 411 uic
history of the IIawallniiIslands.
The track is being put in excellent
shape, nnd ttack records will no doubt
be broken in more than- one race.
The Jockey Club have arranged to
have n number of wild bullock, that
lnve never seen umn before, brought
down from the mountains. These will be
tied to a tame (pin bullock,) and brought
in, so they will be as wild when they
arrive here as they were on the moun

ranches are coming In to give an exhibi
tion of lassoing and tying these wild

Large crowds will come up from Ho

One of the best races on the program
will be the Luna's race, as the boys on
the plantations all think they have the
best horse, and one of them has.
The Incorporation papers of the Hllo
Pineapple Co. have, not yet been filed.
Matters in reference to the organization
are still under consideration and not yet
fully Settled. A meeting was to be held
Monday afternoon at which it was ex
pected conclusions would be reached and
that rapid progress would follow directly
In the way of completing the organiza
tion and getting the incorporation papers
perfected and forwarded.
The pineapple plantations that It is
proposed taking over by the company
are being cultivated and improved by the
respective owners, meanwhile, in antici
pation of the company's taking them.
Among these are Mr. Kelsey's planta
tion of 11,000 pines at Kalwlki; Mr.
Andrews' two fields of 15,000 pities, all
told and, P. S.Lyman's field of about
10,000 in Hilo.
ltond In Park.
Road Supervisor N. C. Lyman put the
prison gang at work Wednesday on mak
ing the driveway in Raiubow Pall Park.
This is a long, winding road, twelve feet
in width, and was surveyed by A. B.
Loebenstein. A slight variation from
the survey is being made by construct
ing the road farther from the bluff than
the survey calls for. This is done on
the grounds of greater comfort for the
nervous, as well as for greater security.
It is the iutentlon to grade and macad
amize the driveway, a work that wilt re
quire about a month's time. The regu
lar road gang that was employed in
bringing Volcano street up to grade has
been laid off for the present, the super
visor having learned that the water
main ou the street is to be moved.

AN ATTRACTIVE PROGRAM.
Entorlnlnmontnnd Dnnco Uy tho II n
irnllnu Women's Club. ''
A most attractive program has been
arranged for the evening of July 5 at the
armory in the entertainment to be given
under the auspices of the Hilo Branch of
the Hawaiian Women's Club. It is to be
both musical and spectacular nnd will
undoubtedly be one of the prettiest exhi
bitions ever seen in Hilo.
Na Lei o Hawaii, by eight girls, each
representing one of the Islands, cannot
fail of being a charming sight, as well as
Interesting in the characterization of the
different Islands. Hawaii is to be repre
sented by Miss Mercy Akau, dressed In
red and bedecked with lchuas, which the
island is noted for.
Oaliu will be represented by Miss
Sarah Mahaiula, and that Island being
noted for illnia flowers, she will be
dressed in yellow. Maul will be repre
sented by Miss Josephine Kalhenul,
dressed in pink nnd decked with the
roses for which that island is fatuous
Kauai, in which the flowers mokihann
and lauae are nbundant, will be repre
sented by Mrs. Kahalue Kipi dressed in
green decorated with these flowers.
Molokai will be represented by Miss
Helen Aiona dressed in white and deckrd
with kukul blossoms, characteristic of
Lanai, by Miss Rosie Johnson, dressed
in orange color nud decked with kauuaoa
common on that island ;
Nllhatt, by Miss Hannah Akamu,
dressed in canary colored gown nud
adorned with the fine white shells found
on this small isle;
Kahoolawe, by Miss Elisa Desha, in
blue gown, bedecked with hltiahlnn, or
Mrs. C. D. Auldrey, draped with the
Hawaiian flag, will represent Hilaka,
Madam Pole's sister.
Another pretty spectacular performance
will be "Pidgic" by six girls prettily
attired in red. The solo will ba sung by
Mr. Ben Brown, Jr., and the chorus by
Miss Kuulci Hapal, Miss Josepeine Kal
henul, Miss Mercy Akau, Miss Hannah
Akamu, Miss Daisy Todd and Miss Dodo
Then there will be a chorus, followed
by a double quartet, "The Owl nnd
The Pussy Cat," by the following eight
little girls: Irene Maby, Margaret Horner,
Irene Brown, Ida Desha, Mary Wiggins,
Love Akann and Jessie Kai.
Mrs. Chas Siemsen, one of Hilo's
favorite singers, will reudcr n solo. A
tableau, "Blue Beard's Wives;" a vocnl
duet by Misses Kuulei.Hapal and Hannah
Akmu; and "Ten Virgins," by ten girls
dressed in white tobes, make up the re
mainder of the program.
A dance will follow, music for which
will be furnished by the Waiakea Quintet
Club. ' ,'
This will wind up the Fourth of July
amusements and a good time is promised.
Bananas to Hum.
A few bunches of bananas nud n
number of pineapples left over from
shipment by the Hilonian, their con
signor, Mr. Brughelli, sent to Honolulu
by the Kinau, for disposal there or
shipment to the Coast by the Ventura,
It was a fine lot of fruit, according to,
Mr. Brughelli, not picked too green as
he asserts most of the fruit is. Ilia ex
perience has shown this to him to be a
fact, that fruit for shipment is not
allowed to mature sufficiently, and he
thinks the reputation of the Hilo banana
will suffer from this cause. Hundreds
and thousands of bunches of bananas,
of finest quality, are going to waiste now,
at always, up through Olaa, he says,
that should be utilized, for brandy, de
natnrized alcohol or something.
Plllkln of a Pake.
The deputy sheriffs office has'all kinds
and varieties of pilikia to deal with.
Sunday night a chluatunn covered with
gore rushed in there and with dramatic
manner aud unintelligible jabber tried to
tell how a Jap had knocked him down
and thrown an ice-cream glass at him,
exhibiting a broken glass, a gash across
his face, and an awful bump upon his
features in evidence. Legal machineiy
got to work in less time than Is required
In the telling. Jap was booked aud
twenty plunks were put up by a
friend to insure his appearance when
wanted. During the day a Porto Rlcan
from Onotnea applied to the sheriff for
authority to compel a belligerant
parent to deliver to him his daughter,
M. J. Soares, ofPnhoa, Punn, sent in
two fine specimens of pineapples as
samples of those grown on his land, of
which he offers to sell twenty acres to
the new Pineapple Company. The
samples are of eight pounds weight'
each, ami of exceptionally fine appear
ance and aroma. The company, how
ever, is not contemplating the purchase
of any laud.
Slexed uud Condom nod.
J. M. Heriug, fish and food inspector,
and D. S. Bowman, agent of the health
board, ou Tuesday siezed 50 boxes of
smoked herring and about 75 pounds of
codfish, shipped from a commission house
in Honolulu to an auction house in this
city. The same were refused by the
house here nnd were siezed and condmned
as being unfit for food.
A crop of insane cases has been matur
ing among the Japanese to all appear
ances. Every week for some time one
or, more has been sent down to Honolulu
committed to the asylum.
