Hawaii by nature, (and by such
resources we mean the fine
quality of building stone), a
lighthouse could be construc
ted! on the point where the
Miowera struck so that such
accidents would be of the past
and sea captains would not
have the hours of anxiety that
make young men old. If it be
necessary to have a lighthouse
halfway between the entrance
to the channel and the dock let
the old one remain where it is,
but that fact should not prevent
the erection of a new one, the
expense of maintenance would
be light compared with advan
tages to all seafaring- men. If
the government had a million
dollar reserve fund it might
copy New York City in its ex
penditures after the fashion of
the Bartholdi Statue and make
one of some prominent poli
tician and call it "Blank En
lightening his Constituents"
instead of "Liberty Enlighten
ing the World." This would
be too extravagant for this little
government, and we would
suggest a plain stone light
house painted with Hendry's
Ready Mixed Paints, that are
guaranteed to withstand the
semitropical storms which we

The long-looked for Pfluger
arrived on Friday and with it
there came to us fence wire
both black and galvanized, in
No. 5 of the former and Nos. 4.
5, 6 and 7 in the galvanized.
For the past few weeks' there
has been something of a famine
in the wire market and some
people have been obliged to
delay repairs and improve
ments until now. In connec
tion with the large trade in
wire which we have built up
within the past few months we
have revolutionized fence build
ing on the Hawaiian Islands by'
introducing me "improved
Lock Fence" the materials for
making which we sell with
the regular wire used in
ordinary fence building. The
economy of a locked fence
sticks out all over it like points
on barbed wire. The expense
of digging post holes and buying
posts is almost entirely dis
pensed with; in the new style,
posts may be put fifty feet
apart and the fence is stronger
than the old style with posts
every five feet. A whole herd
of cattle may run pell mell
against a locked fence and
find themselves sprawling on
the ground while the fence re-
: mains intact. In the matter of
expense, it is cheaper than the
old style for the first building,
and repairs may be made by
one man where the old style
would require two or three.
Quite a number of managers
of plantations are using our
methods of fence building and
the demand will increase with
the arrival of the thousands of
coils of wire by the "Pfluger."
