SEWERS OR DRAINS.
Has the Government any
Government of this country
over attempted anything like ti
scientific calculation of tho losa
incurred annuallv from tho des
traction of street surfaces by
rainstorms ? Without any figur
ing tho damapo apparent to tho
casual eye after every single
.heavy downpour is vory groat.
Upon tho streets running down
tho steop slopeB of Punchbowl
hill to tho . plains tho greatest
damage is done. Tho torronls
thoro descending aro prodigious,
rind pomolhnes one Btorm, like
that of last Sunday night, destroys
' hundreds of dollars' worth of
'good road work. Some means of
conducting tho storm water off
tho streets immediately whoro it
descends, so that it would not
gaiu volume and force upon the
roadway surface, would soon re
pay tho cost of its construction.
There is some promise of having
a sewerage system provided with
in a measurable period, although
practically nothing has been done
in the yar that has elapsed since
postilnnco convinced both tho
public and the authorities that it
was indispensable. Sewage ducts
under tho steep thoroughfares in
question, if made of ample capa
city and planned hobb to properly
subdivide Hood waters, would bo a
solution of tho problem. A storm
would givo tho sowers a more ef
fective Hushing than any of tho
periodical Hushing thut might bo
decided as necessary from tho
city's water Bupply. It may bo,
though, that sewers of a sizo to
accommodate tho downilow from
Punchbowl, at all times, aro not
practicable. Sometimes it rains
heavily for consecutive days or
ovou weeks. In that case supple
mentary water chaunels would bo
ndvisable, and would have to bo
on the surface. Tho construction
of such channels ought not to bo
a great expense, if done in con
junction with tho regular building
and repairing of tho streots. In
stead of rounding oft tho roadway
to a fiuish against tho margin of
the sidewalks, where it impinges
against soft soil easily detached
by rushing water to make dams
Oil tho surface and clog up tho
drainage gratings at the street
crossings thus very much in
creasing tho damaging power of
the Hood concave gutters of rub
blewftrk made of the coarser
stones forming tho sub
structure of our streotB
should bo constructed ou both
-aides of tho roadway. Guttors
so constructed would prevent the
fcwing away of the edges of the
fine surface road metal, a process
that when once begun in a pro
tracted storm becomes multiplied
with its progress. Even with
sewers capable of carrying off all
tho water that might outer them
at tho street cornors, surface
drains of tho kind described would
bo a valuable protection to tho
streets. Betwcon crossings on tho
stoep hills there is enough sur- j
face to make a great force of water
accumulate in a heavy storm evon
within tho range of a single
b'ock. If tho water surges against
n soil bank on the sido of the
roid,- it will rapidly gather materi
al not only to clog tho sower
ppehitigs, but to resist tho How off
tho roadway and thus givo it
damaging power on tho cove-ring
inotiil. HosidoH hnving tho ex

THE NIGHT SCHOOL.
Notice is given of tho resump
tion of the night school at the
opening of the public school
term. The success of tho initial
term of this institution exceeded
tho highest expectations. Still
greater things might therefore be
essayed with confidence. An en
largement of tho scope of tho
night school, so as to include
branches higher than common
school, would afford an opportu
nity of improving their education
which, doubtless, would bo gladly
embraced by many persons, in
cluding evon somo who are no
lougor youthful in years. Tech
nical instruction in various Hues
would also bo au exceedingly use
ful addition to tho functions of
the night school. It would to
mauy young peoplo afford tho
chance of developing or improv
ing their capacities for making a
livelihood. Wo may not expect a
Cooper Institute in Honolulu for
a while yet, but anything sub
serving, oven in n small degree,
tho purposes of that grand insti
tution would bo of incalculable
Elsewhere is reprinted a noto of
distress from a British trade
journal, ovor tho decline of tho
British trans-shipment business.
It is made tho occasion for a slap
at the national freo trade policy,
although no hint is given as to
how protection would stop tho
leak, or do any bolter for tho
nation otherwise. With the de
cline in that particular branch
roprosontod by an nmount under
a half million pounds, an increase
in exports of domestic goods of
many millions is stated. What,
then, is tho trade reviewer growl
ing about? When Japan gets
her raw cotton and iron direct
from America by Japanese steam
ers, according to arrangements
already in course of being carried
out, Great Britain will loso so
much more of tho trans shipment
business, but an increase of cus
toms taxation on imports would not
impede the process.
Whou, a few days ago, tho Bul
letin had predicted an amplo
supply of water from the comple
tion of tho Punchbowl reserfoir
and connecting pipes, a hum came
back from different quarters to
this effect: "Tho papers are
blowing about an abundance of
water, yet wo above Cloud street
cannot got a drop excepting for
an hour or so out of tho twenty
four." The Bulletin meant only
what it said, however, and the
water will bo forthcoming as soon

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

We have just received a
'fresh supply and again call
' attention to their merits.
Have you one or more cows?
J If so, what is your purpose in
keeping them? Is it your object
I to tret 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 you ever stop
ped to consider the benefits of
the Cream Separator, not to
the world, not to your neigh
bor, but to vou 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 the 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
arouna practical mannei.
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. Atore
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 Ids. 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 tne aairy or trom 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 of light power, from
dog tread to engine.
We have also a smaller type
of the same machine, which is
designated as the "Humming!
diray especially intended tor
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

By tho Albert which arriv
ed a few days ngo wo re
ceived 128 Gurncy Cleanablo
Refrigerators, ranging in size
from the small household ico
box to that used in a grocery
store. It was a largo in
voice not consigned, but
bought outright. Theso re
frigerators and ico boxes
havo nine points of excel
lence, to wit:
Cleanliness, freo circulation;
economy in tho ufo of ice;
condensation nnd dry air; low
average temperature; freedom
from condensation on the inner
walls; freedom from dnmago
by tho use of ice picks; proper
location of drip pipe and long
life. Theso points aro found
only in the Gurney Cleanablo.
Now for the reason for the
lirgo purchuse. There aro
128 persons in Honolulu who
need refrigerators, many of
them have old ones. Wo pro
pose leasing' these refrigerators
on the following terms: The
selling price of the article 13
divided by six: when tho refri
gerator is delivered one-sixth
of tho price is paid in cash
and monthly thereafter in
equal payments until tho
entire amount is paid. If
bofore the expiration of the
six months, tho lessee wishes
to payoff tho balance ho will
bo entitled to a discount of
five por cent, on tho amount
unpaid. If a customer wants
to buy outright for cash, ho
gets five per cent, discount
on tho entire amount.
