MERCHANT TAILOR, A large variety of cloths made up In the
GrOO XlXXX, HIG Nuuunu St.
Kdltor Evening Uullstln: "Tho first
Impression gained by a stranger enter
Ing a city la undoubtedly that produced
by the appearance of Hi streets. If
they are poorly paved, ircrgular, dirty
and generally unkept, he will consult
his tlmo tnhlo to see how soon he can
get away. If they are broad, smooth,
clean, well shaded and lighted, he will
stay as long as possible."
The above Is a quotation from a pa
per written by tho engineer of high
ways of a largo city in the United
States. It Is therefore of weight. In
addition to the above, let me say that
I am fully convinced that tho charac
teristics of the streets any city nro the
characteristics of Its Inhabitants. Nar
row streets Indicate n narrow minded
people. Dad, unclean and unkept
streets Indicate a people whoso mental
and moral condition is likewise. All
the above may not be absolute truth
but It is nearly so If the conditions are
persistent. Hearing this In mind, placo
yourself at nine-tenths of tho corners
and crossings of our streets, rain or
shine. What do you nee? Your nrc fa
miliar with the sight so It may not
strlko you, ns It docs tho stranger.
What do you suppose the stranger sees
who Is not familiar with such. Thera
Is hope thnt we are not a narrow and
dirty lot yet to tho stranger It must
look so, and looks count.
I believe that men, women and chil
dren linvo their mental, moral and re
ligious natures lowered by such sur
roundings. The public highway In
this tropical climate U our environ
ment for more hours of tho day nnd
night than the same would be where
there are extremes of weather nnd tem
perature. It Is an adult kindergarten
whoso formative effect is undervalued
but must not be neglected when cor
rect conclusions nro desired. That
thinking human being who Is content
with such conditions as may be ob
served In the streets of this city stands
charged with aiding nnd abetting tho
unclean. Thcro enn bo offered but one
excuse for prevailing conditions and
thnt Is the old proverb "What Is every
body's business Is nobody's business."
This Is moralizing and moralizing
never washed and cleaned a small boy
or for that matter anything else.
Let us not find fault, for we are con
tending with n "condition." Those
streets of Honolulu can not bo built
In n day nor In n year nnd tho cost will
bo great, but allow mo to quote again
from the samo authority as before:
"Bad streets aro denr at nny prlco and
only rich communities can nfford
them." I am qulto suro thnt tho cost ot
mnlntpnnncn nf nnr ntrpotfl In tho tires-
rtt) but, bIJ b.Injr Infinitely . .... , , m ,
chtar", it li more wiiiunt in j cnt condition by macadamizing will be
r.v,ionVovVr?onVBnSu1,V,"ir '" more expensive than the best pave-
nj nwriy iitmoniir-tM tint tin ment If the comparison be inndo clur-
ouicomrivinc. tho ANaiB lami-I InE a sufficient length of time. For
ru'b',:T,irJh.,;r;n,i0x,ffi,h.5 example, the first cost and renewals,
patching and maintenance or n con
stantly falling macadam street will
more thnn threo times pay for a suit
able durable pavement during n period
of twenty years, block for block, whoro
the trafllc Is heavy. Then tho looks
and comfort of It.
And If lookB nnd comfort do not
count then whnt of all this desiring,
having, scraping, ndaptlng, etc.. In
other walks of life. Should you see a
shoemaker halt-shoeing shoes with nrt
leather your first Impression would be
thnt ho Is a fool or ho might explain
that nrt leather wnH tho only material
at hand and that his customers never
considered tho matter nnd were willing
to pay for art leather soles, no differ
ence ns to wear nnd tear.
As a background for scorched cjra
gons and Indian heads, etc., nrt leather
In all right. It Is protty, ornamental
and useful when cut Into thongs and
laces, llko Jerked beef nnd worked after
ornamental designs. Hut for shoes It
would bo costly and unsuitable. 80
with macadam road. Tor parks nnd
country roads where there Is light tra
vel It Is very suitable but for heavy
trafllc Mich us wo havo on our streets It
is as unsuitable nnd costly as nrt
leather would bo for shoo soles. Our
present method Is a costly makeshift.
It Is n sacrifice of good material nnd
workmanship to ttu Moloch of traffic
with tho result of cjne short year of
fair road and flvo yenrs of worse to bad.
It Is what may bo cnlled hail now, I
admit that Moloch must have his sncrl
flco hut do not feed htm nn tho dainty
macadam, Olvo him a steak from tha
region buck of tho horns. Any good
suttublo nnd durable pavement such as
will amuse his back teeth forewent
yenrs or more
No. This la not n pipe dream. Many
cities h(o such pntcment and find It
pays In tin) end. Don't blame tho
road man, Ho plays tho music ns It Is
written. I don't know Mm hut I nm
sure If lie run make .1 macadam load
ho ran also make any other hind ot
road. All his mills put together and
more too will bo required to furnish
desert of broken stones for Moloch if
our streets are to bo macadamized and
Moloch wilt consume It faster than tho
ruts and chuck holes can bo filled in,
Don't blame any one. It is nil ot us.
We arc alt willing to be dirty nnd tho
blame lies with us ns a community.
Thero Is hope that the new blood
coming Into the country will not be
conten with conditions worthy ot the
cave dwellers. Let us hne good streets.
I am sure It does not require more skill
and knowledge to build a good road
thnn It does to erect such substantial
and ornamental buildings as aro going
up on our streets.
It docs not rcqulro Kahunulsm to
do It.. Why, for example, should so
ornamental nnd useful a structure ns
Hackfeld's building border on n hog
wallow of streets? Will there ever be
public spirit enough to demand streets
that may be pleasant to look nnd walk
upon? Many well meaning people aro
very Justly raging against prevailing
moral conditions. Does It not seem to
prove the theory that our onIronmcnt
effects our morality as .1 community.
In conclusion Money spent on ma'
cadam in our streets Is wasted. Tho
rock crusher breaks t'10 material bo
that the heavy trafllc may pulverize. It
and after that tho dust and mud. As
for narrow streets, how will a cablo
car look sandwiched with two nutos
between the "Kush" nnd Benson, Smith
& Co.'s corner on Hotel street?
To havo decent streets Is n duty wo
owe ourselves. Should my dead body
bo taken nlong our streets at a brisk
trot In a rickety spring wagon with
many n Jolt and Jar on Its way to the
crematory, how shocked peoplo would
be. Why do I not get the samo regard
while In the flesh and bump my wny
through dust nnd mud? Inconsistency,
thou fake Jewel; may I ask thee why?

Tho Intcr-clnus baskt't hall tourna
ment at Oahu College furnished n
hunch of Biirprlsrs yesterday. Tho
games were fast and furious, hut tho
team work was poor. Tho first gama
was between the Juniors nnd sopho
mores. At ono time tho Juniors wero
five poinds ahead hut the sophomores
braced and made their opponents hus
tle to maintain their lead. Tho final
score was: Juniors 13, sophomores 10.
The second game furnished a sur
prise. The seniors wero slated to win
with ease from tho freshmen, but tho
baby class rushed things and dumped
tho talent, winning by n score of 13
to 0. The play was very poor nnd re
sembled a game ot ttddledlwlnks mora
than It did basket ball.
Tho Juniors and freshmen will bat
tle for tho first laurels this afternoon.
