The movement to widen Be
retania street from Punchbowl
street to the Nuuanu stream is
a matter which should receive
the favorable consideration of
the government because it is
of interest to every one. It
comes directly under the head
of improvements and a petition
to Minister King would prob
ably have his approval when it
was brought up for consider
ation. There are not many
finer drives than on Beretania
street from Punahou street to
Punchbowl street, but there the
squeeze begins and the good
road ceases. To widen the
street would not benefit any
one man or set of men, the
benefit would be to the masses.
Good roads are as much an ad
vertisement for a community
as anything else, visitors are
influenced one way or another
by the pleasure derived from a
drive through a city; if the
streets are narrow and the roads
poor they are apt to say the peo
ple in authority are "just a lit
tle Peoria," if on the other
hand, they are broad and
smooth the solons are said to
be "up to date." Washington,
D. G, owes much of the favor
able comment passed upon it
to its elegant streets; they arc
written and talked about so
much that they are as well
known as the Capitol itself.
The streets of Honolulu are
weir known to people who visit
the place, but the acquaintance
may be strengthened by widen
ing Beretania street.
The Dietz Oil Stove is as
good a thing as anyone wants
in the kitchen. It bakes, boils,
broils and fries as well as a coal
or wood stove at less cost and
in less time. We consider the
Dietz as good an oil stove as
is made the people who have
purchased them agree with us.
Enamel Bath Tubs arc the
most serviceable things a man
can have for his bathroom
they will outlast Old Time him
self and always look new. They
cost more than a zinc lined tub,
but an enamel one will outlast
a dozen of the others, conse
quently it is cheaper in the long
run to buy a good one in the
beginning. There's no reason
in the world why a bathroom
should not be at all times as
presentable as a parlor, but it
will not be if the tub is dirty
you can't keep a zinc tub clean
any more than you can keep
a polish on a piece of lead.
You can get almost any size and
finish tub you want from us.
We are in the line of ad
vancement in Western Civili
zation, and as the town fills up
with strangers, we must expect
to find among new arrivals
people who neither toil nor spin
for a livelihood. Against such
people you want to lock your
chicken house and put away
your valuables. We are sell
ing the Victor Iron Safe, in
sizes suitable for your business
or your dwelling. This is the
safe most used by Postmasters
in the United States and will
be here once it becomes known
that we are selling them.
Refrigerators are selling ra
pidly with us, possibly because
people are getting ready for the
new order of things in the ice
business. We have the stock
and can show you almost any
size and in any style.
