Now, Just a few words In regard to
complaints of "negligent" cmplnvos.
There have come under my notlco
causes for complaints to the "manage
ment" which, If made would have let
several conductors out of their Jobs.
Por Instance: Not very long ago I
wus going Into town from one of tho
iiibiirb.iu districts. Tho only other
passenger on tho car was a rather
stoul ludy with n baby and a large
liamier. In all uufllclcnt time the lady
Mtcmptcd to ring tho small bell with
the push button, desiring to get oft nt
Iho next cross street, hut tho bell did
not ring. She tried another button
wlh llko result. I tried the button
opposite mv own seat but It had no ef
fect In attracting the attention of tho
conductor who wus tip on tho front
end gnbblng with tho motorman. I
then yelled to the conductor and suc
ceeded in getting him to stop the car,
which was by this tlmo nearly n block
beyond tho station whero the lady
wished to alight. The lady, with eveiy
due cjiiso for anger on her p.irt, be
gan to "kick" hut was requested to
get on as she was delating the car.
Tho lady, with that heavy baby and
still heavier hamper, did get oft and
I trudged back n whole block with her
i.envy load, remaps tins Incident Is

RAPID TRANSIT PLAN
AT PAWAA. JUNCTION
Editor Evening lltillotln:
The eulogy on thu virtues of the
Itapld Transit Co. printed In jour
last Saturday's Issue was very nice
and undoubtedly true so far as It
went. Hut pray explain. It you
can, why tho Itapld Transit Co. In
structs Its men to pull up to tho end
of tho switch nt I'nvvnn Junction, u
block away, and wait there for the
Wnlklkl-hoiind car Instead of Svnlt
Ing opposite the Junction. A well
known citizen reports Hint Manager
Hallcntyno gavo him as the reason
for this action that It was "to In
convenience tho bums who travel
round and round over the road on
ono fare." If this is true, Is it not
somewhat or an lujiistlco to regular
patrons of tho Hue to cnuso them an
unnecessary wait at the switch In
order to get the best of a few Btreet
car Joy riders? PUNAHOU.

IHO SAID KAIMUKI .ROCK, and who .is denying itt Because
Nature has been good enough to provide rock for building;
purposes is that any reascn why anyone should object to
some rock in KAlMUKI, the most beautiful district in the
cityt We admit a few lots in the KAIMUKI district have
rock, but this condition of affairs exists all over the city, as
it is a well-known fact that every residential district has its proportion
cf rock. To those who are laboring under the erroneous impression
that we are offering ledges of rock instead of desirable residential
property, might as well give us proper consideration by coming out and
taking a look at the property we are offering. '
The NEW OCEAN VIEW DISTRICT hat practically no rook and
the rock on the few lots will be removed by;this Company at the, request
of the purchaser. This Company is now clearing un the -NEW OCEAN
VIEW DISTRICT of loth rock and brush, and will deliver lots in first
class shape ready for building. Plenty rock for'building purposes will be
furnished free : however, where the rock has been removed by this Com
pany, it must be hauled back at the expense of the purchaser. FOR
BUILDINP PURPOSES. THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN XAI
MUKI ROCK. IT SAVES 25 IN THE COST OF BUILDING -MATERIAL
AND ADDS 100 TO THE BEAUTY OF YOUR HOME. Its .rough .and
rustic surface and brownish color in 'the building of foundations, col
umns, sidewalks and fences, gives 'bungalows and cottages .a .beautiful
and artistio appearance. The value of this rock in some of the mainland
cities would be more than polished granite, while at Kaimuki, it costs
No one' doubts the fact that the man who walks about in -the Kai
muki red dirt with white pants and white shoes will get them soiled.
But the question arises will that man's white pants and white shoes
be any cleaner when he walks aboJo vijp ovooouo 'jj'p spujq u- in
any other kind of dirt I Besause the soil is red does not affect its
quality, or give cause for any obejetion.
THE RED SOIL IS MORE OF AN ADVANTAGE THAN A DISAD
VANTAGE. Not because it blends with the beautiful golden sunsets and
sunrises over Koko Head, visible from any part oi the ditrict,-,but on' -cccount
of its splendid depth, its rich and fertile quality. The red soil
is what produces the beautiful lawns, iron-wood trees, and palms that
ou find so plentiful among the many Kaimuki attractive homes. While
the paved streets, improvements, vegetation, trees and flowers in the
NEW OCEAN VIEW DISTRICTwill cover the rich red soil, it neverthe
less, must be admitted that the rich led soil is what will help .beautify
Our prices, $500 for the corner lots and $400 for inside lots, sizes
75 feet by 150 feet, together with liberal installment terms, .gives ev
eryone an opportunity to make a good investment and' secure a beauti
