Dredging of Entrance to Kuhio
Bay Recognized as Prime
HARBOR COMMISSION ACTS
Petition From Hilo Stirs Things
Up Federal Government
Asked to Act.
(From Thursday Advertiser)
Unless the federal govemmont takes
somo action nt onco toward tbo
of tlio Blioals nt tho cntrnnco to
Kuhio J3ny, Hilo will bo dopTivcd of
tho uso of its new wharf until somo
time in 11)14, according to information
sent to the harbor commission at the
mooting of that body vestorduy afternoon
llenorts from tho board of trade and
citizens of Hilo state tn.it me n
wharf winch Is rapidly Hearing com
plction will be ready for ncccptauco
Jul 1 next. Unless tno harbor
is deepened nnd tho shoals re-moved
this expensivo and much needed
structuro must necessarily remain idle.
'11ns condition is ciuicd by tho fact
that the federal government last November
reiectcd nil bids for this work,
when it was decided to delay operations
until congress will piss tho not
river and harbor appropriation act. It
is expected by tho government that
this act will carry sufficient monoy to
cnablo tho government to tako up ns
one project the extensive harbor plnns
it has made for tins Territory.
One reason for rejecting tho tenders

Binco dov eloped that theso figures wore

nnd if tender' aro again called for the

Congress hns already mado nn
for dredging Kuhio Bay, nnd
it is understood that W. P. Woo-ten,
commanding tho engineer corps in
Hawaii, is willing that tho important
work bo taken up as soon ns possible.
Practically every business establishment
in Hilo has joined with tho noard
of trade of tint place in petitioning
tho harbor commission to securo prompt
action on this question. Ulus petition,
together with the resolutions, were received
nt tho meeting yesterday. Thoy
met with tho hearty approvnl of the
Hesolntions endorsing tin move to
havo the work started without delay
wore presented by Commissioner Jnmcs
Wakefield and adopted w..out a dissenting
vote. Following is n copy of
Resolution for Action.
"Resolved. That U board of har

"That this board is of tho opinion

Commission Plans Call lor Bond
Issue of $2,500,000 for
Permanent improvements to tho valuo
of two and one-half million dollars will
ha mnde in tho harbors of tho Territory
of Hawaii within tho noxt two
j cars If tho recommendations of Harbor
Commissioner James A. Wakefield,
made nt rt confcrcnco between tho members
of tho commission nnd Governor
l'rear yesterday afternoon, are carried
out by tho coining legislature.
For nearly two hours tho Governor
and members of tho commission discussed
tho needs of the Territory's
harbors. Though tho question of bar-bar
improvements has bocn discussed
before, tho commission was not ready
until yestcrdny to submit definite estimates
as to tho probablo cost of tho
work necessary. Tho discussion brought
out the fnct that tho facilities of the
harbors of tho Torritory at tho present
time nro taxed to their utmost and
with tho expected increase in shipping
in the next few years the principal
ports will prove inndequato to enro for
A Bond Issue.
In tho event thnt Governor Frear includes
tho recommendation in his message
to tho legislature that body will
be culled upon to authorize the issuing
of bonds to tho amount of $2,500,000.
Work is to start as soon us tho Territory
can arrange to float theso bonds,
which will perhaps bo during tho present
This money will bo in addition to
the regulnr funds which will bo required
to maintain and operate the
whirvea of tho Territory.
The money secured from tho bond is-
suo will bo used principally in permanent
construction at Honolulu, Hilo
and Knhului. Not until theso improve
ments nro carried out will any effort
at permanent construction bo mndo at
tlio other ports, it is said. This does
not mean that tho wharves now in uso
at these ports will not bo improved.
"The permanent construction work
wo now plan," said Commissioner
Wakefield, "has been under discussion
for somo timo and all members of tho
board npprovo of it. Concrcto will
tako the place of piling and tho
wharves will endure. In tho past wo
hnv o paid as much ns $150,000 lof somo
of our wharves only to find thnt aftor
a few years wo have etponded nearly
the original cost in upkeep. With permanent
construction, this item of upkeep
will bo practically eliminated.
"Wo do not care to rcpoat our Ma
hukona wharf experience, where a $14,-000
structuro was swept away within
n few months nfter it had been accepted
by tho Territory."
It was nearly four o'clock yosterday
afternoon beforo the commission began
lis regular session. .Uespito tlio inn
of time, opportunity wub found for
transacting a largo nmount of business.
Commissioner Hcrndt was unable to re
main for the mooting. Bills to tho
amount of $29,341.05 woro approved
and ordered paid.
No attempt was made to conceal the
fact that somo one blundered in planning
tho Jlaiiultonii wharf on Hawaii.
Tho investigation mado by Commissioner
Wakefield last week showed
thnt the walls of the structuro woro
built upon a flimsy foundation of small,
loose stones, to be undermined nnd
carried nway during tho first storm.
Tho contrnuor wns not held to blame,
for Superintendent Ilishop said that
his reports showed that tho contractor
had moro than complied with the spcci
llcations. Tho error, it was hinted,
waR probably duo to tho original plans
Tho Jfnhukoiin wharf cost tho Territory
$14,000. It was accepted last
November. Tno recent storm nt jiu
hukona was the first to test tho
strength of the frail structuro and it
wan swopt nwny. Tho condition of tho
Btructuro is such that it wns not deemed
worthy of repair. An estimuto ns to
tno cost ot a new vvlinri wns submitted.
It is figured that tho debris on tho
present sito can bo cleared nway nnd

ho aims to regenerate Having been a
commercial traveler for seventeen years
chiefly through tho Pacific States and,
to uso his own expression, "having
heard tho Master's name profaned,
hearing His Namo battered about on
tho tongues of men as tnough tbo God
of tho Unlverso wero npthing more
than a bootblack or a tramp," ho decided
to do something to prevent such
a profanation nnd plnnned nnd 'perfected
tho with which his
namo has been prominently identified
all over thq United States.
"Prof oners of His holy name," sajs
Mr. Lett, "uso tho sacred name with
less' reverence thnn they do n boot

or a tramp thoy sometimes siy Mr.

against this profnnatlon and finally 1
yielded. I discussed tho matter with
two codlv men and it wns proposed to
perfect an organization to fight Satan's
language. Accordingly, on December
30, 1904, wo Uvreo met nnd drew up a
constitution and by-laws for a socioty
and called it tho Anti-Profanity Society
of tho World.
Profanity a Crime.
"Profanity is n crime. It is so prevalent
011 out thoroughfares that ono
cannot ride on n street car, or walk
on the street, but nil tho timo our mother
's, sistor's or children's hearing is
shocked by tho profaner who tramplos
on our rights as citizens of this country,
disregarding tbo holy namo of tho
God that tho nation worships.
"During tho first year of this society's
oxistenco I remonstrated with
one hundred nnd profano
men and ono hundred and
tliTco ndnuttcd tho ternblencss of their
crime. Of nil tho societies that I know
of tho sacred namo of our God.
"Tho motto of our socioty is that
we nover converso with a man who
swears without calling his attention to
tho crime. It is poisonous becauso it
teaches the bojs to swear from hear?
ing men swear. Wo do not jump on
every person wo hear using profano
language, but wo get in touch with him,
but if ho swears in rt .boisterous manner
In the ncaring of women nnd children
wo get ntfer him at onco and
may bring nim into court.
Corner Cursors Especially.
"Tho profano men who hung around
.street corners aro tho ones vvo nro particularly
after ns many of them do
not respect the presonco of women nnd
children. Under tbo California law tho
man who does this is guilty of a misdemeanor
and may ho fined not exceed
ing $200, may be iinpriBoned for
days, or both. Not ovorjbody knows
thero is such a law. It would bo woll
for such n law to bo strictly enforced
"It is n startling fact, established
by cireful statistics kept for thirty
years, that profano nion's lives
nro short. Becauso a profano man finds
himself ostracised by tho moral and
Christian men ho falls naturally into
bad company and becomes n profligate
and very often winds up in a roost f
evil, that soon cither ends his lifo
tlicr report from 'tho mill owners befora
nuthorizing tho uso of concrete.
Will Kcmlnd Hilo.
Commissioner McCarthy brought out
tho fnct that Hilo so far has mado no
ntternpt to carry out its promise to
build n road to tlio wharf ut Hilo. Tho
wharf is rapidly Hearing completion and
nothing hug been dono toward opening
tho road, it is said. Commissioner
Wakefield moved thnt the commission-cm
nnd board of irndn nt Hilo bo com.
muiiicnted with nt onco and asked to
take stops toward earning out tho
promise to build a mini when the construction
of a wharf at Hilo was ob'!0J
Pevernl rominunirntioni of minor
ware also rond nnd noted upon.
The nnlv ItuslntMs cantiiiuod until tho
iioxt inectllng was that of adopting tho
nnlnvil harbor ruin of arlormntor
or tends him to tho insane asylum.
Therefore, tho habit of swearing is
much moro serious thnn mnuy think or
slop to think about."
Mr. Irftt has been successful in the
establishment of branches of his organization
throughout tho United
States and tho society now boasts of
fcv cral thousand members. Tho founder
of this uniquo society is n, modest
man but not in tho least shy in pressing
tho conviction on any ono who wilt
listen to his cult. He ' alio tho founder

which is doing much good against
tho social ovil nnd in rescuing people
in groat want or danger. Mr, Lett's
bundlo of newspaper clippings show
that tho newspapers havo been loud
in their prniso of his efforts.
Mr. Lett beliovos that sermons
should be preached in tho churches
against tho uso of profano languago at
loast onco a month, and too propaganda
agitated in all Christian churches.

M. Giffard, chairman of tho board of agriculture

from tho press, and is entitled "Some
Observations on Hawaiian Forests and
rorost Cov er in Their Eolation to

was read bcloro n joint meeting of tho
board and tho committee on forestry
of tho Hawaiian Sugar Planters'
contains not only a fund of valuable
information, but gives a clear
warning of what may be expected if
the Islands aro deforested.
Mr. Giilard, however, is constructive
in his criticism of present conditions
and goes into detail in his recommendations
of what should bo done to not
only presorvo tlio forests which remain
in tho ruin zones of tho Islands, but
tells of what should bo dona to increase
this force nnd how.
After tolling of conditions and tho
danger in present indifference, Mr. Giffard
"If tho agriculturists on this nnd tho
