Rumor Picks Bishop as
the Next Head of
HE WON'T DENY IT
Admits He Has Been
p (Prom Monday's Advertiser.)
While tho'1 names of a number of possible
appointees to. the office of superintendent
pf public works, vacated by
Mnrston Campbell, havo been 'upon the
popular tongue of late, and while Governor
Frcar has been impartially
about, the chances of all
of the suggested superintendents, the
capitol atmosphere has been surcharged
.during the last few days -with rumorB to
the effect that tho latest and most likely
candidate is H. K. Bishop, consulting
engineer for the holt road commission,
and, as if to confirm the rumor, Engineer
Bishop very quietly and unostentatiously
dropped into Honolulu Saturday,
It is true that the approaching allotment
of 'funds for tho road work offer
him nn oxcuse for his presence in the
city at this juncture, but in conjunction
with tho aforesaid persistent rumors it
is interesting to note that II. K. Bishop
admits that his name has been suggested
to the Governor "by a number of
friends," that the Governor does not
deny that tho Hilo engineer is being
considered, and Bishop docs not deny
that he woild accept the office if it
wero tendered him.
"I have had no conference with Governor
Frear as yet on any question,"
said Engineer Bishop yesterday, "but
I expect to bo present at the conference
tomorrow in my capacity of consulting
engineer, when the chairman of the
commission takes up the matter of allotment
for road work on Hawaii in
August. I do not care to say whether
I would accept the position which Mr.
Campbell has vacated or not, for it has
not been offered to me yet." While
conforming to good taste in his reticence
tho engineer did not attempt to
give any Teason- why-he would not accept
tho offlcp if he is appointed nor in
any way to deny that ho is a candidate.
When interviewed upon tho matter
last nigljt Governor Frear expressed
surprise when he was told that Bishop
was in Honolulu and in spite of the fact
that the engineer, according to his
statement, made a trip to this city to
confer with the Governor and the belt
road commission today, he asserted that
he had no idea, of tho engineer's purpose
in visiting' Honolulu nt ihis particular
. .Wants Appropriation.
The conference which will probably
bo held in tho Governor's offico today
will consider the allotment which will
bo granted the Hawaii belt road in
,"Tbo total appropriation," sold -Engineer
Bishop, yesterday, "was originally
$600,000. Wo havo already received
$150,000 of this and wo want to
get just ass much of tho remaining
$450,000 this August as we poBsVbly
can. Wo have already let the contracts
for tho building of portions of tho road
between Hilo and Hakalau and there
are fifty or sixty miles of very "bad
road between Hilo and Waimea which
wo should liko to get to work on as
soon ns possible, if wo can get tho allotment.
The best roads in that district,
where the climatic conditions nre hard
on good roads and still harder on bad
ones, necessitates n good deal of road
work and a good deal of expensive upkeep.
In this projected conference I
shall be there simply in an advisory capacity.
OLD FOES BURY
TJjo hatchet has been buried by Link
McCandleBa and Sheriff Jarrett, Palmer
Woods of Hawaii attending to tho burial
of that instrument. Jarrett is expected
to roll up his sleovcs and work
for Link, whilo Link will take off his
collar, spit on his hands and turn to
put Jarrett back into tho sheriff's offleo
this fall. It was a Httlo reconciliation
party yesterday morning at which all
t,lila was effected. Falmor Woods is to
return to Hawaii, and it i reported,
he wjll roll up n majority of votes for
Link, and so the merry little party
goes on. ' There are a number of satellites
who linvo been revolving around
Link, however, who are not in full

LAVA SUBMERGES BIO PINNACLE,
FORMERLY SIXTY-FIVE TEET
" ABOVE SURFACE.
The lnvn, lnko of Kilauca is still rising,
according to the latest reports from
tho Volcano nnd the big pinnnclo which
hna marked the rise of the flood for
months past nnd which stood sixty-five
feet nbove tho lava a few weeks ago
1b now completely submerged nnd tho
overflows nro becoming almost dally occurrences.
The complete chronicle of the
Volcano's latest activities nru included
in tho following communication from F.
B. Dodge t
Editor Advertiser: Tho lake of
lava is somewhat smaller than it was
when Professor Jnggar started the
scientific work hero in Jnnunry, but although
smaller it is nevertheless just
as interesting inasmuch ns it has risen
about feet since then.
The depth below tho rim noiv is 220
feet. Tho lake measures 434 foot by 244
feet. The following are tho daily levels;
April 21, 10:15 a.m., 230 fectj
April 22, 10 a.m., 229 feet; April 23,
4:25 p.m., 227 feet; April 24, 4:30 p.m.,
223 feet; April 25, 9:20 a.m., 220 feet.
The average for tho week is 227 fcot.
The lake fell bnck about nino feet on
April 21, but April 23 regained its former
level of 227 feet, the highest for
last wecty and hns kept on rising until
it stands at 220 fcot.
Tho pinnacle which stood 00 feet
above the lake when the observations
started and which wns such n prominent
mark has been totally submerged by tho
many overflows, and the only thing
that stnnds to show its former position
is a large cono thnt spitB lava and llame
nt night. Qn the night of April 21,
there were numerous overflows and an
exceedingly swift easterly current. In
tho day tho lava dropped and tho cun
rent was very sluggish.
Tho Take overflowed again April 22,
and there was nn extra amount of
smoke pouring froiri the cones on tho
northwest and west end. It was very
active April 23, when it got to its former
level, nnd a very largo overflow
occurred at the south cove.
There wns, April 24, nn immense cono
situated about 40 feet back of the west
end and spouting largo quantities of j
lava and flamo into the air, at tho baino)
time giving lortu a loud roar: Tho average
interval of tho Old Faithful was.
50 seconds, the longest recorded.
"There wero many largo overflows
through tho day and a strong easterly
current. April 25 saw tho lake practically
the same but 3 feet higher.
