BOARD OF HEALTH PRESIDENCY.
Tho resignation of Mr. MoU-Smlth'
lis head of tho health department of
the Territory will be generally re
gretted as ho has been one of tlo
sjneerc and clllclcnt public workers
of the present Territorial administra
tion. He lias an excellent record lo
Ills credit, of which the city and Tcr
, rltory will reap tho greatest bene
fits and Mutt-Smith the satisfaction
of a lot of hard work faithfully per
formed. It Is to be presumed that-the liov
ernor has practically inailu up Ills
mind who he will naino as Mutt
Smith's successor, as there Is no rea
son to believe that tho resignation la

Whether llio Governor names him or
not or whether he Is still willing to
undertake tho work, there Is a gen
eral sentiment that Dr. Ilobdy from
Ids connection with tho marliio hos
pital service would bu one of the
best men for the Presidency of llio
Health Hoard, Ho Is a logical man
for the position.
Whoever takes the management of
the health department assumes a

THAT ARBITRATION TREATY.
Always up to dale, Hawaii lias
celebrated tho acccptanco of llio ar

The arbitration treaty which the
morning paper announced as rat I lied
In Its cablegram of July .nth proves
to have been an agreement to arbi

regarding this treaty was contained
in the Washington correspondence of
the II u 1 1 o 1 1 n recevled In tho

Honolulu has already celebrated the
acceptance of the arbitration treaty
by tho United States Senate. The
first passjng of signatures by the
signatory powers now comes along
as nn Incident. This calls to mind
that Honolulu was the only city on
earth that celebrated the coronation
of King IM ward on the first date
set. Let us hope that the opportu
nity will also be given to celebrate
the acceptance of tho arbitration
treaty n second time.

WHEN a man buys something useful
which at the same time is steadily in
creasing in value he is twice fortunate. It
is only a little over ten years ago since the
pioneer settler on the land of Puupueo
made his home there. Then there were
none of the many conveniences required by
the exacting suburbanite. Now all the ad
vantages that can possibly be asked for are
procurable: Mountain spring water, tele
phone, electric light and Rapid Transit
