On a day like Tuesday when
tbe largest of the island fleet of
Btoamers loaves port for tbo other
islands it 'is vory annoyiag to
peoplo who havo businoss oa Fort
Btreot to bo forced to go out of
their way for even a few feot.
Tbero was more gonnino kick
ing figurately speaking, on the
part of people and aotaally, on tho
part of horses, at the intersection
of Fort and King streets today
and particularly this forenoon,
than has boon uotioed for many a
day. Tbo oauso was the opera
tions of a gang of mon on the
tracks of tho Hawaiian Tramways
Oo. Hern uro tbe facts.
In tho first placo thuro were as
many as twelveT Asiatio laborore
employed in tho work. First
they would work awhile along tho
track from Fort to tho end of
where the digging has been done,
about opposite tbo Wnikiki limit
of tho Arlington grounds. After
working for a little tboro they
would walk slowly to the inter
section of Fort and King to make
Bomo kmd ot a snowing.
King stroot is torn up for about
Bovonty-five foot towards Kapa
lama and carriages wishing to go
to tho wharves must mako a very
sharp turn around on King, drive
seventy-five feet, make another
Bbarp turn over the traok, drive
Beventy five foot hack toward Fort
and then finally turn down Fort.
For pedestrians it is necessary
to bavo a first class guide and an
Alpine stick. To carry eggs is
out of tho question Women bavo
not attempted to oross today.
Tho have preferred to mako the
turns like the carnages.
Tbo sumo contortionist's triok
must be performed if a trip up
Fort streot is dosirod. In the
event of two vehicles going around
the upper corner of Fort and King
streets from opposite direotionB,
"there is a blookado and ono must
go over the pile of rooks and tbe
bare tracks or be bumpodfrom
behind by ono of tbe tramoars.
Tbe laborers are evidently
looking to th'oir interests and try
inc? to nroloncr their iobs for tbov
go through all sorts of unntcessa
ry motions before making a single
stroke with tbe piokaxe or shovel.
With the gang of twelve men it
is very probablo that tbe public
will bo troated to this deligbuul
state of affairs for two or throe
days yot and tbore will really be
snmo incentive to tho use of tbo
oars which are tbe only moving
things that can get over the tracks
with safety to tbe bones and dis
positions of human beings.
When tbo work began a few
days ago tbo situation was better
for croosings over tho tracks were
left. Even these bavo been taken
away now. If a person in a wa
gon outside tho Arlington wishes
to got across tbe stieot, ho has a
choice of driving out King street
for a block in either direction.
Either is aggravating.
Said a portly man in a vory bad
humor this morning: "I never
saw it otherwise with tho Tram
ways Oo. The peoplo at the head
of affairs soora to think that tho
whole community must wait for
their pleasure. A gang of thirty
or forty mon could do the work in
a little while. Yot pooplo muBt
wait two or tbroo times as long.
I really think tbat tbe courts
should bo resorted to iu this nat
ter. It is outrageous that the
Erincipal businoss stroet should
o made impnesablo for such a
longtb of timo and that too when
tbero is not tbo least bit of excuso

The reports of Dr. Peterson on
tbe Gnlician laborers aro still in
tho hands of President Dole and
havo as yet not been brought up
in Executive council. It is un
derstood that tho conteuts of tbejo
reports aro very interesting as
showing the situation of affairs
and contradicting tbe wild reports
of oruelty and the like that bavo
been circulated from timo to time.
Of course these reports cannot
bo socured for publication until
they have been presented to tho
Ministers. The public has been
informed of tbe existence of tbeso
roports, and has wondered why
they have beou kept back so long.
For the information of peoplo in
terested, and by way of setting
forth tbo exact truth, poople have
wondered why these reports were
not pnbli'ihod immediately after
the arrival home from Kauai of
Among tho peoplo most anxious
about tbo matter is J F. Hack-
felil, German Consul, who is now
on Tantalus. While he was pre
sented with a copy of tbo first re
port, early in the year and after
the first trouble with the Qalioiaus
at OhIiu plantation, he has not yot
seen a copy ot the second report
and wonders why.
E. Snbr, who is acting for
Consul Hackfeld during his ab
sence from business was seen this
"Yen," said Mr. Suhr, "wo are
anxious that the reports ,bo pub
lisbed and can nee no reason
why they should bo held
back. Wn have a copyot Dr. ire
trrson's first report but 'cannot
give it ont for publication since it
is a consular matter and a request
has been made by tbo govornment
that it bo not given out for public
ation. "Do you not think you ate in a
position to demand, a copy of tbo
last report for1 publication Mr.
Suhr?" was askod.
"I do bolieve that we aro in
jastBucha position andfutther
niore, I believe that is just What
wo will do if tho matter is not
actod on in the very near futuro
and a copy furnished us. I can
see no reason why tho reports
should not be published in toto.
We certainly want them publish
ed but our bands aro tired."

Alliance Wlh England.

gressman J. W. Bailey today
said: "I am fully p-rBuaded that
tho National Administration has
entered into a full and complete
agreomont for an alliance between
Groat Britain and tbe United
States. This alliance, in my
opinion, is to be b th defensive
and offensive. I think tho reason
it has not been published to tbo

tho President is afraid to do so."
When tho steamer Kauai was at
Lahaina ou her last trip to Maui,
Parser Simerson had a conversa
tion with Manager Kruso of tho
Pioneer Mill Oo., Ltd., in which
the manager spoke ot tho many
improvomonts rapidly progressing
on the plantation.
In tho first place tbo steam
plows and a large gang of men
have recently startod to prepare
over a thousand now acres for tho
planting of next year's sugar crop.
This land has nevor been used to
grow cane before, but it is as gord
for the 'purposo as could bo de
sired and can bo very roadily sup
plied with an abuudanco of water.
At presont tbo Pioneer Mill is
not grinding steadily, hut this is
on account of alterations and tho
addition of six now centrifugal
machines whioh wore taken to La
hatha by tbo Kauai on her last
run to that port. Sevonteon con -trifdgals
aro at prosont in com
mis'sion at the mill, and when the
other six aro in working order it
is estimated that tho output of the
Pionoer Mill will amount to
twonty-two hundrod bags of sugar
It is only a matter of a few days
before the now machinery will bo

amount bo produced.

Tho Commissioner will uiaki

to tho Herald from Washington
Somo uneasiness prevails in
military circles relative ti tho at
titndo of Ohina with respect to
the Filipinos as tho result of her
refusal to permit the shipment of
horBra purohnsrd by nponts of
General Otis to Manila on tbo
ground that thoy are "contra
band of war."
While tho Peking Government
has not formally recognised lho
belligerency (f Aguumldo and bis"
follow ors, her announcement that
horse are "contraband" in regard
ed as daugeroutly near such
recognition. Otlicials interpret
her action to meau that China
holds that this Govornment, in
stead of being iiagd in tho
suppression of nu insurrection, is
involved iu a war an I tint goods
purchased by it iu her umpire for
4hu uso of llio Amoricau annv is
oonsequeully contraband. This
Government has taken no diplo
matic notice of Ohiua's declara
tion that hordes are contraband.
L'ho TJnitod States would vigor

of the belliuorency of the Fili
pino and for Homo time, the au

foreign states gr.intiug bucu reo-

Because of the great change
which would occur iu tho status ol
tho Filipinos by recognition of
their bolligerency by any nation,
and tbe consequent embarrass
ment to tbo United States, this
Govornmont is doing everything
possible to preveut. It is helievq
ed tbeso efforts will bo successful
at least until tbe result of tho next
campaign is apparent.
Should tho dry season ond with
tho insurgents still in the field,
tbe difficulty of preventing foreign
recognition will be materially in
creased. In somo quarlora there is a dis
position to belioro that Ohina has
been stirred up to her extraor
dinary action by Europan iuter-
osts, but sho is regarded as alto
gether too friendly to the United
States to formally recognize tho
