THE WATER SUPPLY.
Honolulu bids fair soon to havo
an abundant supply of pure water.
There has been a prodigious wasto
of monoy extending over a great
many years in dovising means for
bringing about such a happy con
summation. The plans begotten
of expensive oxport examinations
and surveys ndentod by one ad
ministration would be discarded
by tho next, and so on. Somo of
these plans wore undoubtedly
good and could havo been put into
effect without great further ex
pense. The oresont Minister ot
the Interior, whoii a water famine
impended shoitly after ho tool;
office, adopted heroic measures to
prevent such a calamity thou
and for many yoars to come. His
scheiuo was to tap tho artesian
basin or basins underlying tho
city plot and it took but a fow
mouths to tnnko tho schomo a
success. A shapely pumping
station, woll equipped with mo
dcrn machinery, is a creditable
monument to Minister King's de
cision of character in an emergen
cy. The community has tho
blessing of a copious outpouring
of pure water, in addition to tho
old supply of mountain water by
gravitation, which can have con
stont instead of variable purity en
sured by tho adoption of
a method of filtration.
Tho Government should
next tako into consideration tho
question of a reduction in water
rates, or at least a graduated scalo
with soino account of tho quanti
ty used by oacli ratepayer. At
present tbo occupant of a confined
tenement drawing ouly water for
bare household purposes lias to
pay as much as tho owner or ton
nnt pf a dwelling having an ox
tonsivo lawn that absorbs wholo

In backing up tho notion of
establishing a permanent exhibi
tion in tho old legislative hall,
tho Commercial Journal is "at a
loss to uudoi'Hiaud how any enter
prising journal could opposo tho
idea." That paper then switches
round to advocate an annual ex
hibition us tho legitimate precur
sor of tho pormauout concom.
Tli in is a different proposition,
howovor, from tin ono tho "enter
prising journal" in question op
posed. Solnntifio visitors of tho oalibio

himself died a few days aftor as
suming tho position of Govornor

On your return you asked leave
of absenco to go to Now York to
promoto an extension of the line
to England and spoko confidently
of being ablo to oxtend it ncross
tho Atlantic and connect Europe
with America. Up to this time I
uovor heard tho idea suggested and
though reading tho English and
American papers never saw any
allusion to tho practicability of
such an enterprise. As no capi
tal could bo got in Halifax yon
naturally sought in Lindon and
Now York for co-operation and
assistance. 1 do not of course
know what took place abroad, but
of this I havo no doubt, that until
you wont to Now York nobody
had suggested or taken any step
towards promoting an Atlantic
Mr. Howo concludes thus: "It
ought not to bo forgotten that tho
very lino across Newfoundland
now used by tho Anglo-American
Company was originally, at groat
pecuniary sacrifice and risk of
health, explored by you and con
structed by yourself as chiof en
gineer of tho New York, New
foundland and Loudon Telegraph
Tho financial journal from
which tho foregoing extracts aro
takon says: "From tho above it
is manifest that Mr. C. AY. Field
and his associates could not havo
becomo interested in Mr. Gis
boruo's enterprise before the
spiiugof 1851. This sustains us
in our recent view that tho pre
tension of Mr. C. W. Field to bo
tho originator of tho great project
is simply preposterous."
Mr. Gisboruo's memory will de
serve to bo honored in connection
with tho Pacific cable now being
promoted uudor British auspices,
for ho was tho author of that idea
as well as of tho Atlantic cable
project. Sovouleou or oightoon
yearB ago Mr. Gisborno, when on
his way to Ottawa to take tho office
of Superintoudout of Government
Telegraphs, called upon the pres
ent writor in an Eastern news
paper oflico to thank him for
um-iwuK 'M l-'" I'aun n me
piouoer in ocean telegraphy, from
data furnished in the editorial
columns of the "Washington Re
publican. To show his apprecia
tion of tho slight service Mr. Gis
borno divulged a sohome that he
had conceived for a cable aorosB
tho Pacific, which was to form
part ot a telegraphic lino around
tho world under British control.
The information was not to bo
published, howovor, until some
official hint omanated from gov
ernment quarters. When tho
timoBhortly afterward camo tho
details imparted by Mr. Gisborno
in tho manner stated mado an in

A short time ago we intro
duced the De Laval Cream
Separators to the notice of the
public through this column
but we were compelled to
change our advertisement in a
few days as the demand created
by it soon exhausted the sup-
' ply of Separators we had on
We have just received a
fresh supply and again call
attention to their merits.
Have you one or more cows?
If so, what is your purpose in
keeping them? Is it your object
to get the most money from
them, with at same time some
comfort and satisfaction? Are
you doing it?
Have you kept pace with
the improvements in dairy ap
paratus? Have vou ever stop
ped to consider the benefits of
the Cream Separator, not to
the world, not to your neigh
bor, but to you personally and
If not, you cannot do any
thing better, and the sooner
the better. Everybody now
understands the principle of
centrifugal creaming. Gravity
causes trie cream to rise in the
old way. The separator sim
ply adds centrifugal force to
gravity. It merely uses two
natural forces instead of one
only. It effects the complete
separation of cream from milk,
which is not possible in any
other way, and in the most all
around practical manner.
The De Laval Cream Separ
ators are in almost universal
use the world over. They have
revolutionized dairying me
thods. The State Colleges
and Experiment Stations all
use and advocate them. Alore
than 8,000 have been sold.
All practical creameries have
long used them. Progressive
dairy farmers do so in all sec
tions. There must be many
users around you. No user ot
a De Laval machine ever did
otherwise than endorse it.
The De Laval "Baby" or
Dairy Cream Separators are
now made in six different
styles and sizes. They range
in capacity from 1 $0 lbs. per
hour to 700 lbs. per hour.
Capacity means separating
capacity per hour. They are
made for all requirements from
the household buying its milk,
to the dairy of from one cow
to one hundred.
The De Laval machines are
Hand machines. They are de
signed and constructed for
hand use. Women and chil
dren run them. They are used
almost wholly in such way.
Still they may be attached to
any sort ot light power, irom
dog tread to engine.
We have also a smaller type
of the same machine, which is
designated as the "Humming
Bird," especially intended for
household use. It is very
small, very compact, extremely
simple, easily understood and
cared for, safe and durable. It
possesses every advantage to
be found in any of the larger
