Admiral Dowoy is now recoiv
ing nn outward demonstration of
the high place ho holds iu tlio
hearts of tho American people
"What words finite! to pxpreBft tho
people aro tolling tho Admiral in
tho greatest pageant our country
ha& uvor known. Not only is
Dewey "au up.to.dato American"
as Boo8e'-blt put it, hut he is a
"truo American" and no high tri
bute can bo o"ered that overeleps
tho bounds of justice to tho
character of tho man and tho
capacity of tho officer. Aftor ull
tho ideal featur- of the reception
tendered is tho modest manner iu
which Dewey accepts it.
With a mighty notion resound
ing with his praise, with a people
striving to outdo themselves iu
Bhoweriug honor and preferment
upon him, Dewoy credits himself
with having dono nothing more
than his duty, giviDg his best ef
fort to his country and his flag,
-which duty ho reminds the publio
was done by every man in the

wo hnvo only to call attention to
tho Tantalus lacil transfer which
occunit-d tb attention of tho
Board of Agricnlturetoday.
Not mure than thirty days be
fore tho President's ordor was re
ceived, tho local Executive turned
over to W. 11 Custlo two and
ono half acres of tho best Tantalus
properly in exchange for some
mxhi.dii half nuns of Tuntaliih
propeity rwued by Mr. Cufitle.

special attention by tho Uoord of
Agriculture; kept clear of forest
trees, plauted with fruit trees aud
ornamental shrubs, with tho end
in view that us tho town bocarue
more populous tlmro shou'd be
ouo place in tho lulls opeu to tho
general public for a recreation
ground. Tho Board certainly ex
ercisid good judgement iu its
seleotiou of this joservo for tho
publio. About a mile distaut
from tho town and at an elevation
of cbout ono thousand loot, a
most magnificent view can be oh
tained nnd access to tho placo is
comparatively easy by tho trail
running up tho ridge as well as
tho winding roadway.
All tho plana and work of tho
Board were Bet at naught by ono
quiet stroko of Hawaii's Exoou-
tivo. Without consulting tho Ltoard
of Agriculture on tho transfer, a
privato citizen was given tho
bonofit of tho publio work of
several yearn and ono of the of
ficials having dealings with tho.
publio lands says bo does not
know tho location of tho six and a
' half acres accepted from Mr.
Castle in exchange, except that it
is further from tho town.
Whother tho exohango was in
fluenced by Mr. Oestlo's known
friendship for tho Executivo is
.not for the people to say as tbey
do cot know tho full details f
tho oxohange, but certain it is tbat
the Excontivo bad no" moral right,
even if I hoy had legal right to
pass on tho matter without con
sulting tho Board of Agriculture.
The section of tho"Qoneral Pro
visions" Respecting Government
Linds under which tho Executivo
aotod reads: "Tho said Minister
(of tho Inteiior) under the direc
tion and with the approval of tho
Erecutho Council, shall bato
power to pnrobfitQ lots upon which
to ereot publio buildings and other
lands for tho use of harbors high
ways, whams, waterworks, oud
other internal improvements; also
uny propeity necessary for tho
publio service; and to pay for tho
eamo in such manner as the Ex.
ecutivo Council shall direct; pro
vided always, that tho amount
of the existing debt incurred for
tho purchase of such lands or pro
perty, shall at no time exceed the
sum of twenty-fivo thousand dbl
lars; and provided further, that
no moneys specifically appropri
ated by the Legislature for any
other object, shall bo applied to
tho discharge of the debt incurred
as heroiLbefore provided."
We would ask theExecutive whe
ther thoeix and ahalf acres more
or less purchnscd of Mr. Castle,
by an exchange, was for the erec
tion of "publio buildiogj," ''uso of
harbore," "highways, wharves,
vraterworks" ortiu what manner is
it "neceisary for tho publio
Tho public has a right to au ex
planation, eveu had tho President
uot declared all salor, lenses and
Ilroolulu -to day is having
brought forcibly to ils attention
tho necessity of reserving land for
publio recreation grounds and
there is no question of the unau
imity with which the peoplo will
support members or the Board of
Agricultuio iu their efforts to
bold for the uso of the people this
tract of Tauthlim land.

'Yes," answered Senator Sorghum, "and

been to him.

Likely Purchaser: "By the way. your
manager has Just lately been married."
Head Salesman: "Yes; oh yes. Sterling
bicycle people are to blame for that."
Purchaser: "That's Interesting; what
did they have to do with It?"
Head Salesman for P. C. & M't'g Co.:
"Well, you see, he took the young ladv
out on the Sterling Tandem we have here,
and It ran so easy he thought she was
doing all the wtl, and the same thing
was passing through her mind. They
both thought how nice It would be to have
things always that way. They didn't
know those Sterlings were to blame."
Purchaser: "Well, 1 guess you can set
up thnt same Sterling wheel for me."
Did vou know that the P. C. & M'f'g
Co. will make your old wheel look like
