sugar and other tropical produc

to be supplementary to roller mills,
for treatment of the cane after

successful invention made by Mr.
Adamson.in Kansas, wherebyjsplcn

ARE HAWAIIAN TAXES HIGH?
A correspondent contributes the
"There are people who warit to
make out that the property tax this
community has to pay is very light.
I will try to piovo their cnor,
which, however, can only be done
"In Germany for instance, for
various reasons called a tax-ridden
country, a property owner pays, if
his income is say between 53,600
and $4,200 (called a class), the sum
of 8105 per annum, which is for the
state or impeiial government. He
furthermore has to pay n municipal
tax varying very much according to
the place he lives in or where his
property is located. In older to ar
rive at a fair taxation, the state tax
is taken as a normal standard er
guide and a certain peiccntage
thereof paid to tho municipal gov
ernment. "This percentage varies very
much ; it is from almost nothing up
to 15 per cent, na for instance with
the town fif WioDbufleru whloto to
tho beat of my knowlci1((o la thti
highest taxed town in all Germany,
"por the sake of argument I take
this highest lax rate, which would
make an additional amount of 157.
60 to pay, together therefore $2G2. 50.
In this country, in order to get an
income of 8-1,200, it is necessary to
have nionertvof at least 800,000
in value, and pay the annual tax of
$000 thereon. With the figures of
52G2.J0 and $G0O befoie my eyes, I
would ask v. here the light taxation

THE HILO RAILWAY.
(From (he Uilo Jiecord, July 2.)
There are some prospects that the
project of a lliloandllamakua llail
load will be revived. Certain par
tics, we understand, arc taking it in
hand, and we most ccitainly hope
that all those living either in Hilo or
Uainakua will give it all the help
possible. The favorable piospecls
of the Oahu Railroad give our road
a better standing and we believe
that there will be but little, if any,
dillleulty in raising the necessary
means wherewith to build it. The
whole distance to be traversed by
this railroad, some GO miles to Wai
pio gulch, is through one of the best
watered and most fettile agricultur
al districts on those islands, and
would support a large population,
were the pioduets that can be raised
along the line of road able to find a
market, which now it is almost im
possible to do. And there is no
leason why the road should stop at
Wnipio. As we have said in a foim
cr issue, the road can be easily led
around the lee side of "Mauna Kea,
through Maua and aw ay down toward
I Itialalai, opening an immense tractof
the most fertile laud, especially
suitable for the raising of grain, hay
and such other products of a tem
perate climate, as we are now ini
poiting at a gieat cost to ourselves.
Much of this land belongs to the
Government, although at present
under lease. All these facts should
be laid before those interested in
promoting the building of this road.
To our old friend "Sam" Wilder,
this was well known, and he had
foresightedness enough to see it,
too. We believe that a railroad
built thus would, inside of ten years,
double the population of the di-
tiicts through which it runs, and
more than double the agricultural
pioduets, besides paving out selves
hundreds of thousands of dollars,
by giving us the chance to raise so
much that now we are forced to im
port. So may success attend any
new move to build llie "Wilder
Railroad," and if it is ever built,
may it be called the "Wilder Rail
road" in honor of tho man who
gave his life for it.
THE UNITED STATES AND STEAMSHIP
American steamship lines should
receive sucli liberal pay for ti as
portation of the United States mails
ns will increase the frequency and
celerity of the trips of existing lines
and induce the c&tnblifcbnient of new
lines, especially to South and Cen
tral Ameiican countries and to the
Fast. Thus far, with the exception
of two or three spasmodic move
ments in this direction, Congress
has declined to adopt the policy by
which foreign countries,' particu
laily Great Britain, have secured
the establishment and maintenance
of great steamship lines, which have
enlarged their merchant marine, in
creased their naval power, controll
ed loutes of commeice, and largely
developed foreign trade. The le
cent action of Great Britain and
Canada in gi anting a subsidy of
$300,000 per annum to secure the
establishment of a British steamship
line between Vancouver and China
and J Japan, with the object of
driving off the American line
between San Francisco and those
countries, ought to amuse Con
gress to the impoitance of en
couiaging the establishment and
maintenance of American steamship
lines between the United States and
the countries of South Amcricn and
of the East. ("Congtessman Nelson

Last evening tho pupils of St.

dramatic entertainment in tho largo
hall iu tho college grounds, and it in
safe to say that it was the best txhi
bllitn ever given by a school on
these islands. The audience was a
largo one, filling the building in
every pait. Tho floral decorations
on either side of the stage were
quite unique, while the plllais were
festooned with evergreens. They
were the work of Mrs. W. L. Wil
cox. Among those present w.cre,

The piogiammc opened sharp at
7:30 o'clock wuh an overture
"Lutspiel," beautifully played by
the College orchestra under the di
rection of Brother Albeit. It is
moat enjoyable to sit and listen
to the playing of the boys, there is
so much merit in it, and thoir &o
luctious arc such as to bi iug out
the aiious instalments. Later on
they gave tho "Diamond" overture
and a "Farewell" march with much
taste and expression. The comic
opera "Poor Ilcmyv," in two acts,
was most amusing, anil great cat e
had been bestowed in its prepara
tion. The part of Poor Ileniy was
taken by Master Eli Jones and the
little fellow catried it through in
flue style. His singing was excel
lent and his lines were hcaid quite
distinctly. A blighter boy could
not have been chosen for the pait.
W. Cuelho,as the schoolmaster, was
exceedingly good'and the same may
be said of W. F. Kaae as the assist
ant. The music to the opera is
pretty and was accompanied on tin:
piano with admirable skill by Bro.
Francis. The minor parts in the
opcia were all well sustained. As
the curtain fell on the second act
the pel formers wero awarded pro
After the first act II. Bertelmann
plaved a flute solo in a very accom
plished manner. Win. Cuelho's
clarionet solo pioved him to be an
excellent performer on that instru
ment. His tones wero title. The
College Choir rendered two choruses,
the first, A. B. C, being somewhat
difficult on nucount of the rapid pro
nunciation of the iettfcrs of the al
phabet, which it calls for. But the
boys overcame the difficulty and it
pleased the audience very much.
The Gloria, fiom Mozait's twelfth
Mass, was a lino vocal effort on the
part of the choir. It was sung with
precision, and there was a full vol
ume of tone.
The comic solo and chorus "Dot
leetle Get man band," kept the au
dience in one continual roar of
laughter from beginning to oud.
William Ctielho was immense
the leader of the band, and
and it is only our limited space that
prevents us giving more p.uticulars
of this piece. The faico "Slippery
Day," was most amusing. James
Lloyd as Sharp the lawyer, and A.
Fernandez as Cijspin the shoe
maker, weie splendid in their parts.
The other charactcis weic ably sus
tained. To Brother Bertram, the able di
icctor of the school, much credit is
due for the ariangements which
were perfect in every rrspect.
Father Leonor in his usual genial
manner welcomed Uiom! who attend
ed and saw that they were comfort
ably sealed. Ill other Albert ably
diiected the oicheslr.i and the choir
during the evening.
A statistician has figured out that
a man 'who has reached the age of
fifty has spout three ycais f his
