IS ANYTHING WRONG?
It tho iccont outburst of
criticism of tho Board of Health
in a certain qnnrtor had not been
obviously invidious ugainBt tho
reorganized body, on tho do
parturo of tho lay presidont and a
modical niembor for Japan, it
might have resulted in somo light
being thrown on tho administra
tion of tho Board as previously
constituted. Indeed, tho explosive
campaign of attack inaugurated by
tho Star hay had, for one of
Sts chief results, tho effect of
arousing suspicion that its real
motivo was tho raising of a cloud
to obscure facts discovered by tho
Legislature's visiting committeo
to Molokai. It transpires that
members of that committee, that
roportod everything with a few
minor exceptions lovely at
tho Settlement, have been
talking freoly about town
of somo matters there discovered
which indicated looseness of sur
voillance on tjio part of tho Board.
Why these members choso to
make tho unfavorable part of their
report on tho curbstone instead of
tho floors of tho Legislature
passes understanding. One thing
they have commented upon out
side is tho condition of the stores
of provisions at tho Sottlemont.
Tho canned goods aro declared to
"bo stalo and unfit for human food.
If this is true it is scan
dalous. Monoy is appropri
ated by every Legislature to pro
vide proper supplies of provisions
for the afflicted inhabitants of the
Sottlem&t. Any foisting of in
ferior food on thorn is not only
inhuman treatment so far as they
are concerned, but it is a swindle
upon the taxpayers of tho coun
try whoso monoy is voted to' bo
honestly expended. The Bulletin
does not say that such a scandal
exists, but it lias good nuthority
for saying that members of tho
legislative visiting committeo have
talked about the storos in tho
inaunor stated. Lot tho commit
tee be .categorically interrogated
on tho matter in opon session of
each branch of tho Legislature.
This is a case where oven street
talk should, ho timoly rosolved in
tho propor'arona, in the interests
of the lepers, of tho people at largo,
and of the Board of Health itself.
It is worth thinking about tho
suggestion of a correspondent,
who, it may bo said, writes from
another island, that tho lepers on
Jilolokai might bo employed in
raising silkworms. With tho for
est now boing set out thero grown
ap somo, thero would probably be
more regularity in the rainfall. A
light occupation Buch as that sug-
gosted would bo bouofioial to tho
lepers, not lea6t in diverting their
minds from their infliction, and
ly prying them something for
their labor if successful thoy
would havo a motivo of activity.
, Tho experiment would cost next
to nothing, tho planting of mul
borry trees being right in tho lino
. of tho forestry operations just

Sonator Horner said tho princi
pal reason why tho committeo re
commended postponing tho mat

was considerable opposition to
tho bill in Hilo itself.
Sonator Northrup said although
ho had signed tho report if tho
Hilo people really wanted tho
road and wore prepared to build
it, thoy ought to havo it
Senator Baldwin said tho Le
gislature had no right to grant a
franchise directly to any
ono company. Tho bill
should be a general one, allowing
any company to bid on tho fran
chise, and make arrangements
with tho Minister.
Senator Bice said tho Legisla
ture had only just passed a bill
widening tho streets of Hilo. This
would tako at least two years and
until it was done tho road could
not bo built. Ho did not' see tho
necessity of hurrying the rnattor.
Sonator Lyman said tho com
pany did not ask for an exclusivo
franchise. Tho bill itsolf provided
that tho road could not bo built
until tho streets wore widened in
accordance with tho now law. All
tho company wanted wus permis
sion to go ahead.
Sonator Watorhouso moved to
amend by laying tho bill'on tho

amendment and tho motion pass

Sugar planters know more
ways of getting rich than
holding down their taxes. As
was stated to the writer by an
intelligent observer the other
day: " It takes as much care
and vigilance to run a planta
tion and mill as to run an
ocean steamship. Every little
detail, every screwhead and
bolt, has to be inspected to
see that nothing goes wrong."
Jn the matter of saving waste
and expenses, which is half the
battle for profits, the planters
of these islands have made an
The care of their live stock
makes no small amount of the
expenses ot plantations, and
anything saved here increases
the profits as well as a gain in
the percentage of extraction of
sugar from the cane. In the
cut above given you have a
view of a 12-foot geared Aer
motor we have put up at
Kapaa, Kauai, for the Makee
Sugar Company. And here, in
the second illustration, is
shown the use to which the
power is applied.
All I he cane tops for feeding
the stock are cut in this
machine driven by the Aer
moto. The motive power is
also utilized for pumping
water for the animals. One
man attends to the whole
business where, before the ad
vent of the giant "Ventosus,"
the labor of several men was
We have contracted with
the trustees of the Queen's
Hospital to remove a steel mill
(of another make) long ago
erected at the institution,
taking it away as "slops" and
subatituting it with an Aer
motor. The old one has not
given satisfaction, and the
trustees are acting on the
splendid reputation gained
by the Aermotor. Less wind
than it takes to run the Legis
lature will put the Aermotor
in a state of successful revo
lution. While we are talking to you,
