A CHANCE FOR JI1E SEARCHLIGHT.
What of this Hilo wharf agreement?
If the facts as alleged by responsible men arc true, the
Territory has come close to giving away public rights with
out even the excuse of misinterpretation of a legislative act.
There have been murmurings of discontent, and muttcrings
on the part of the public which foots the bills that some
thing has been going on under the surface in this matter.
Now it should be forced into the open.
The inability of responsible corporations vitally interested
in the wharf to get from the Department of Public Works the
plans for the wharf at once suggests that some of ihe allega
tions may be true. And the cut-and-dricd form in which the
"tentative agreement" as Campbell calls it, finally comes
forth, is not calculated to allay suspicion.
Campbell's hand is shown plainly enough in the gem of lit
erature sent out as an invitation to the public hearing. In
fact, if it is not his hand that shows all through, it would re
quire an expert in palmistry to detect the difference.
The Hilo Railroad Company naturally wants its own rights
safeguarded and its interests protected and assured. The
duty of the harbor board is to stand between the public and
the private interests and sec that impartial treatment is given
This is too important a matter to be settled at once. The
issues involve not only Hilo, bill the commerce of the Tcrri
tory generally. The facts should be put before the public.
Who drew the agreement?
Who is responsible for it?
Let the light be turned on. The hearing next Saturday
morning affords a good chance to work the searchlight on
some dark spots.
