Cltlns of the Kallhl district
through tho recently organized Im
provement club aro putting energetic
effort Into a public work, 'vlilch merits
favorable action on the purl of officials
and tho unanimous support of tho com
munity. Wide streets, goo 1 streets and
plenty of them aro first of many Im
portant foundation measures neces
sary to tho progress of tho modern city
along modern lines.
Certainly It cannot be spid that thu
Kallhl and 1'nlnma dlstilets havo had
moro than their share of tho leaves and
Halioa of legislative favor that make for
tho Improvement of tho city as n whole.
For years tho only direct nvenuo for
an Immense- amount of traffic to tlfn
portion of tho town has been King
street which Is hardly bitter than a
lxno. No district o( tho city
has suffered moro neglect or moro In
Tho Kallhl Improvement Club has
already established Its right to exist
eoco and to a hearing by securing for
tho government a largo part of tho land
necessary for widening King street
at practically n oexpenso to tho tax
payers. Tho next request equally
worthy of tho good rocord of tho club
Is to secure the extension of School,
Vineyard and Kuaklnt streets, thus
giving threo additional avenues to tho
resldcnco and business portions of tho
city on tho Ewa sldo of Nuuanu stream.
That this oxtenslon is a rubllc neces
sity, It Is hardly necessary to arguo
before tho taxpayers or tho authorities.
Tho only subjects for argument aro
tho details of ways and mc.uie.
Jt Is understood that tho first request
will bo for tho Interior department to
complete tho surveys Jcr this exten
sion. This Is not only fcaMblo but
orcry citizen will recognho tho advisa
bility of tho Interior dcpaitment tak
ing Immcdlato action. It Is merely a
matter of tlmo when the3o streets will
havo to ho oxtended. To establish Im
mediately tho lines for tho extension
will forestall tho probability of houses
being erected on thu stieot lines nnd
nssuio tho final extension at tho least
posslblo cost to tho government for
land damages. Tho land for these
trccts can, nt tho present time, ho ob
tained at a nominal flgur. In many In
stances the land will doubtless ho of
fered to tho city In lieu of tho Increas
ed valuo of tho adjoining property.
In fact tho Club takes a largu icsponsl
bllity In dealing with tho property
owners. Judging from their success
In dealing with owners along tho King
stieet line, It may bo anticipated that
tho club will obtain reuults highly

Prof. Koebclc's trip has been very
fruitful Indeed. Astdo fiom gathering
Insects beneficial to tho vegetation of
Hawaii, he has paid particular atten

ative shrubs nnd trees for tho Islands.
Tho Insects nro partlculirly designed
for tho destruction of tho different
kinds of scales that nro row here.
Over threo hundred different species
of shrubs and trees havo been gather

history of neckweai has there been so
many varieties made of the very choicest
silks. Pattern designs are characteristics
of these new makes. String Ties, Puffs,
Scarfs, Four-ln-Hands, English Squares
and many other of the latest patterns are
to be found In our stock. A line article of
neckwear has become a necessity to him
who would be well dressed. No part of I
his dress Is more conspicuous, and when I
