DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 1890.
In the whole rango of needed
public improvements there is
nolhiug more important than
roads to open up the country,
especially thoso sections contain
ing land suitable for settlement
and tho growing of coffeo nnd
other valuable products for export.
Thoro is danger of a sorious
mistake being mndo in providing
this uecessury factor in internal
development. Conversation with
different officials reveals that thoro
is a difference of opinion regard
ing tho method to bo pursued.
Some uro for spending tho availa
ble funds, from regular rovonuo
and loan sources, in making roads
designed to last with littlo if any
repairs for a long time. Others
hf-liovo that tho correct policy is to
merely break n way along the set
tled ioutes which will admit of tho
passage of wheeled vehicles in
other words to level down and
fill up as required in n cheap and
expeditious manner so as to open
up tho greatest extent of country
at tho least possible espouse with
the means immediately available.
The Bulletin favors tho latter, or
tho rough and ready plan. Ex
perience already had will sustain
this view as the wiser ono, and
scarcely leave support for oven a
medium between tho two proposi
tions. It would tako nil tho re
sources of the country for ton
years to construct tho boulevards
contemplated by tho gentlemen
of high notions in tho
matter, upon even tho routes
loading to rich coffeo lands al
ready occupied and being culti
vated or at least prepared for cul
tivation. When tho Volcano road
was projected tho coffee industry
that has developed marvelously
since its completion was only
mooted as a grand possibility, in
cidental to tho benefits of en
hanced tourist travel which was
the primary object of that work.
Tho results in development of tho
country from that road omphasizo
the desirability of pushing roads
as speedily as possiblo into other
regions of arable land. To adopt
a policy, however, that would
mako tho building of such roads
drag along for five or six years,
as that of tho Volcano road, would
bo tho acmo of unwisdom.
Suoh, unfortunately, is tho
policy that has been adopted with
regard to tho highly important
Puna road, branching off tho
boulevard from Hilo to the Volca
no House. Several thousand dol
lars has boon expended in build
ing a macadam road, superior in
surface to any street in Honolulu,
for tho paltry distanco of three
miles. There the woik ccasod for
want of funds, leaving only a
daugorouB trail beyond, leading
to ono of tho finest coffeo settle
ments in tho group, which can
only be traversed under tho con
duct of experienced guides. Tho
same money expended in opening
up tho route just sufficiently to
givo a safe track for whools
would have carried the
road many times farther. It is
safe to say that if tho 810,000 vot
ed out of tho now loan for this
road is to oxpoudod in hard polish
ed boulovard construction, tho
nioneors of Puna will still have
an impassable sea of lava botweon
thorn and tho outor ond of vehicu
lar communication two years
honco. Hough and ready roads
penotrnting as far as tho money
will allow within tho poriod will
bring settlers whose taxes will
provido amply for tho gradual im
provement of the roads thomselvos.
Even tho actual work of building
tho roads will bo facilitated in
proportion to tho oxtont to which
they aro baroly made passablo for
wheeled traffic. Road mak
ing in now countries must
advance by evolution if satis
factory progress is to bo made in
oponing up available territory for
sottlomoutand dovolopment. Once
all tho necessary roads aro broken
through a territory, tho principlo
of thoroughness in construction,
with a viow to pormanenco bb
well as excollouco, is properly to
bo applied. But why should good
lands in ono district bo loft to Ho
exclusion from bases 01 sup-
plies and markets, to await the,
construction of roadB on tho an
cient Roman standard to lands in
another district? The pioneors
of agriculturo in Amorica
slashed their ,ways, rough
and ready, through tho trackloss
forest, and bridged bottomless
morasses with corduroy, leaving
tho perfecting of the highways to
posterity. Their first considera
tion was to "got there," and they
loft their childron,in oircumstauces
and in numbers, tho ability to
mako easier communications than
they enjoyed. Yet oven in that
progrossivo country thoro nro
thousands of communities that in
generations hava not nttainodi
ovou upon in finitely oabier
ground, to such roads os some of
our authorities uro trying to givo
tho settlors of tho sevoral oases in
tho lava seas of ILiwnii. Tho
ideas of tho Government in tho
matter of roads ought to bo shap
ed to tho conditions of the coun
try. Otherwiso, a generation
honco will see tho country still
undovoloped, while tho building
of costly boulovards for princely
carriages, over routes that de
manded thoroughfare simply for
country wagons in tho beginning,
will havo only fairly started.

over the town, rustling the

What a pretty introduction
to a novel could be made out
of a Honolulu evening 1 The
picture is incomplete, how
ever.without ringing in a hand
some parlor lamp. We have
your choice of many varieties
of hanging lamps in the most
artistic styles silver, bamboo,
black iron, porcelain, etc., with
elegant shades. If it's "light
on the subject" you want, you
may just as well have it in
style. The prices will not be
in your way, you cannot get
lower for equal value elsewhere.
Don't bother any more .with
that wornout lamp, but treat
your household to a "thing
of beauty" that will shed a
nightly glory over your do
mestic happiness and pleasures.
Some people may have tried
to convince you that the mon
archy of the oil stove has been
abrogated in favor of other in
ventions. Don't give any
countenance to such a notion.
The oil stove has kept right
ahead with the march of pro
gress, until its improvement
has culminated in the Blue
Flame Oil Stove that we sell.
If we have told any of you
that our stock was exhausted
and would not be replenished
for some little time, we must
take it back as we do now
gladly. The Monowai agree-
aoiy surprised us wiin a iresn
lot, and they are now opened
out. None who saw the ex
periments in cookery perform
ed on this stove in our store
recently will need to be in
formed of its superior merits.
Any who did not have that op
portunity are welcome to en
joy satisfactory demonstrations
of the stove's qualities on ap
plication. One thing about us
is that we never try to .sell
goods on the chance that they'
may give satisfaction. We
want our customers to be thor
oughly convinced that they are
getting value for their money
before they part with it. With
the full consciousness that our
business reputation is at stake,
in regard to this as well as to
other standard articles that we
advertise, we unhesitatingly re
commend to you the Blue
