THE LOCAL, IDEA.
Mr. Horner's first objuctiou to
the Republic o Hawnii, ns a re
public, is that it has not given
local municipal govornmeut. But
that foaturo or popular institu
tions is not peculiar to ropublics.
Hawaii would hnvo had it in tiino
ovou with tho mouarohy perpetu
ated. Sho will havo it under re
publican auspices whenever tho
country is ripe for tho change. At
prosont district rulo would moan,
for tin groater part of tho group,
biiitply plantation rulo. Thero is
u oousidorablo element of local
rule in tho present conditions
nurviving tho monarchy. Officials
doing the work of tho central exe
cutive in tho country districts
aiv, us a rule, chosen front among
thn local residents. This is tho
ciio even in the matter of offices
Unit would be under the national
government if we had municipal
institutions. Thero havo boon
cxptions to thn rule, sonic of
ihom rocontly, but no local com
plaint has been heard on thoir
account, so that tho reasons must
luiva been fairly good. To counter
balance those exceptions thero nre
C'ihc.s of men from the rural dis
tricts boing selooted for positions
at theeripital. A notable instance
of the estousiou of local rulo
principles is found in tho now
Judiciary Act, an overlap of mon
archical upon republican legisla
tion. Prior to its coming into force,
jury trial courts to uso a phrase
that will bo clear to laymen -wore
only held in tho country districts
under the presidency of a Justice
of the Supreme Court "riding cir
cnit" from Honolulu. Now tho
Court of each Judicial Circuit
must be presided over by a Judge
rosiding in tho Circuit, excepting
in cases of disqualification or
emergency. Municipal institutions
ore bound to bo inaugurated some
time, but they will probably bo
extended gradually in keeping with
the growth of competent self-governing
population. Thero will
need to bo a distinction nindo bo
tweon town and country muni
cipalities. Linos of demarcation
between countios or districts will
lequiro groat care in drawing.
Hilo town will be ready for muni
cipal government long before any
other urban sottleniont in the
group. Its initial experience in
housekeeping will bo valuable for
the guidance of legislation in
raising other towns to municipal
Handicraft, the paper issued at
Kaniohameha school, gives
"Alumni Notes" in its latest issue,
telling of sovonteon formor pupils
of tho institution who aro filling
positions as teachers, mechanics,
clerks, etc., including two or threo
who nre increasing thoir storeH of
knowledge elsewhere. This exhi
bit accounts for only comparative
ly few of tho Kameliamoha gra
duates who aro doing for them
selves. Tho Alumni are in grand
evidence of tho usefulness of tho
foundation created by tho will of
tho lute Hawaiian ohiofess, Mrs.
lieritice Paualii Bishop, for tho
perpetual benefit of young Ha wai
iaiiH. "7n recent years only it hns
come to bo recognized that li'.uUh
or nauitaiy considerations are
well nigh parnmouut." Whoever
wrote that remark in a contem
porary must bo very young, and
liavo neglected to post himsolf on
affairs antedating his birth.
Quarantine, periodical town
oloineing, . compulsory vaccin
ation, and condemnation of un-
nilnry buildings, enforced with
all tho powor of absolutism, aro
'quite ancient in most civilized
countries. And what about tho
segregation of lopors in Hawaii
It is gratifying to boo tho Gov
ernment so amonablo to rational
public opinion ns to abandon, at
least to somo oxtont, its policy of
griuding tho faces of tho poor
yeomanry of Hilo in making
roads. Tho taxpayers of this coun
try do not want economy of ox
pondituro on public works effected
through tho payment of starvation
wages for labor.
It so happons that tho report
of a decision by tho United States
Commission on tho Venezuela
dispute has boon contradicted by
a member of that Commission.
Tho onterpriso of tho American
press, in discovering tho decision,
therefore, is rather peramatour, as
Mrs. Partington .would say if
While not claiming to be the
exclusive lever in all public ini
provemeats, as tho mauuer of
somo amiablo contemporaries is,
the Bulletin can say that it wob
loft alone iti the persistent agita
tion for street crossings, that
longfelt want which Minister King
is about to supply.
Harpor'B Weekly was for Glovo
land and Cleveland was elected a
second time. "Shrewd" remarks
are often made on slowed facts.

Government road work from 75
cents to SI a day. This was only
extnded to the men in Mr. Mar
lin'fl gang, nnd that geutlomau in
forms us that the effect was elec
trical. Almost doublo tho work
is obtained from tho laborers, a
hotter grade of labor has applied
to bo eugagod, thoso at work aro
more solicitous about holding
thoir positions and a willingness
to lift and shove things along
with a will is noticed. This is tho
natural result and wo want to seo
our friend Brunor exteud tho
raise ull along tho lino. Tho
laborer's pay is not tho point nt
which to economize. Tho skill of
tho engineer in overcoming tho
natural obstructions will easily
satisfy tho Government if it is well
laid out. Tho grind of labor is
worthy its hiro. Let us hear from
you again, Mr. Brunor. Tribune.
FltACAS AT HAMAKUA.
On Saturday night last Doputy
Shoriir Overond of Honokaa re
ceived a telephone messago that a
limn had been assaulted at Paau
ilo by threo Japanese laborers.
Taking two trusty mon the Dop
uty proceeded to tho scono of tho
troublo and arrested the three
men. On his way to jail with tho
prisoners au attempt was made to
rescue them by the other Japa
nese employed on tho plantation.
Tho Doputy was surrounded by
a mob of excited Japs and stones
and other missiles began to fly.
Fearing that ho might bo over
powered by numbers tho officer
drew his pistol and commenced
firing, purposely shooting low. As
a result two of the mob wore shot,
ouo in tho foot and the other in
tho leg. After landing his pri
soners in tho lockup the bravo
ollicor wont buck and arrested tho
ringleaders of the riot nnd soveral
participants. Somo wero fined
aud six of them uro boing brought
to Hilo for investigation. Herald.
THE HILO HOTEL.
With tho entry of Mr. nnd Mrs.
Louis T. Grunt into tho manage
ment of tho Hilo Hotel com
mences a now ora in tho existence
of that old time hostelry. No
effort has been sparod to make it a
first-class establishment in every
sense of the word. Tho building
has boon thoroughly fumigated
and cleansed from end to end.
New mattiug and furniture havo
boon purchased, and tho dining
room und kitchen supplied with
every modern convenience. A
competent chof with a staff of ob
liging and attentive waiters has
been ongaged and, under the ablo
management of the lessees, the
now venture is bound to prove a
succoss. Tho building is lighted
throughout with electricity and
ovory comfort will bo provided
for guests. Special attontiou will
bo given to table boarders Tho
Clarke promises, in the adjoining
lot, havo been leased and will bo
conducted as an annex to tho
hilo all iuaiiT.
At a banquet given by Commo
dore Beckley in Hilo, Deputy
Collector McStooker is reported
thus by tho Tribune: "In res
ponse to tho toast 'The Govern
ment,' Mr. McStooker assured
those prosont that Hilo was all
right with tho Government. Ho
had pointers about wharves,
breakwaters, post oflico buildings,
hospitals, wido streets,oto., that he
was not at liberty to di
vulge, but Hilo was nil right."
Owing to an unfortunato mis
take, tho shipment of materials for
tho refrigerator plant and electric
light works arrived in au incom
plete condition and a furthor do
lay of sixty days is tho result. If
you suspect that you do not grasp
thn full cravilv of tho situation
j just call on Mr. Grant for particu
lars. It realty uoes mm goon to
unload, and you will get somo
new ideas in ornnto oratory. It
is a speech peculiar to those who
havo been associated with dyna

STUBBLE DIGGERS, SHAV
ERS AND CANE CUL
TIVATORS. We want to call attention
for a few days to three ma
chines suitable for sugar land
First Avery's "Mallon"
Stubble Digger, the peer of
all sugar land implements. The
superiority of this machine
over all similar ones is evi
denced by the fact that until
this season the manufacturers
have been unable to supply
the demand for them. Their
features of absolute merit are
(a) Metal wheels with re
(b) Solid steel teeth.
(c) Great strength with
lightness of draft.
(d) Improved flanges with
Avery's "AUllon" Improv
ed Stubble Shaver. This
has lately been greatly im
proved and now runs on four
wheels in the furrow. The
knives can be raised or lower
ed with ease, with one lever,
without stopping the team.
Can be regulated to shave at
any depth. The knives are
protected by shields, so that it
is impossible for the mules to
be cut by them. There is no
weight on the mule's necks.
This Shaver can be turned as
short as a cart and is light
draft for two mules.
Third Avery's IMPROVED
"AUllon" Cane Cultiva
tor. This implement is used
in the culture of both corn and
cane from the first dirting of
the crop, through the entire
cultivating and "laying by"
season. Is simple in con
struction, strong, durable, light
draft, easily operated and
understood. It has the re
volving sectional discs, which
work on each side of the row,
thoroughly cutting and pul
verizing the soil. The desired
quantity of dirt thrown to the
plant is regulated by changing
the angle of discs on the drag
bar. Hie operator can pass
rapidly over the crop without
the trouble heretofore ex
perienced by moist earth stick
ing to the discs, cleaners being
attached to the axle, which
effectually prevents the discs
These three valuable planta
tion implements are now in
use at the Pepeekeo, Onomea
and Wamaku plantations and
we shall be pleased to show
testimonial letters from the
managers as to their respective
To intending purchasers we
would say that the pi ices of
these machines have been ma
terially reduced this season.
We keep them in stock.

Should Be Good
Somo time ago thero was
nn itom going tho rounds of
tho press in tho United States
to the eft'ect that a young lady,
who was ill, wnnted to secure
one million postage stamps,
to givo a physician who had
promised to cure her on re
ceipt of them. Tho girl who
did that was a man, and he
was deluged with stamps;
then he came to Hawaii and
he is hero yet. Whilo ho was
collecting post go stamps, little
Doll' Washburn was on an
other lay. Sho wanted to save
her poor dear mother all the
time she could around baking
days, so she invented an egg
separator, which takes the
yolk from tho whites with
tho greatest euse. Tho sepa
rator sells for 50 cents and
Dolly has already made enough
out of it to employ a good
cook and livo in Now York.
In this country most ser
vants light fires with the as
sistance of kerosene Thoso
who livo through it get along
all right, but they wasto lots
of oil. Wo havo a contriv
ance whoreby oil may bo
saved aud all danger of ox
plosion may be averted. The
price is little.
Mr. Paxton must havo been
a man who hung around the
kitchen a good deal, for he
has given to the world a
combination dipper, strainer
and funnel, that is about as
cute as nnj'thing over seen
in the kitchen. You can
strain soups, milk and other
things or you can havo a dip
per or a funnel combined,
for a quarter.
