Sir: 1 wish if possible to correct an altogetheF,wrong impression which would naturally be conreyed to the reading public in an article frcm your special correspondent at Hilo of yes terday's date dealing with a series of suggestions which I made to the board of tupervisors at Hilo recently for the betterment of conditions at the Cocoa nut Island bathing beach. My sugges tions were Lurk-squed by your corre spondent. As you are doubtless aware, there have teen during the past few weeks drowning fatalities both Jn and around the district of Hilo.' which" prompted my euggestions to the board of super visors of endeavoring to awaken in terest in forming a life saving society for the islands of Hawaii on similar lines to that far reaching and useful society, the Royal Humane Society of Great Britain. With regard to the Coooanut Island bathing beach I suggested that a few regulations eucli as are existent at many well known resorts and also a suitable equipment be purchased for. use in first aid. ' I still telieve that if my euggf-stions were adopted. In whole or in pait. they ivculd prove extremely beneficial in the case of giving assistance to these requiring it and would obviate the possible loss of valuable lives through the absence of .proper equipment at the right time, I maintain 1 hat this is a matter which cannot be treated as material for; comic allusions and regret that DEMOCRATS WERE PEACEFUL.

THE VALUE OF PUBLICITY When the thirty-five" railroad sys-J terns Vmu are apiHaling to the Inter-, state Conimen e Commission for per-r mission to increase freight rates pre-! pared to present their case, one of thej first things done was to arrauge that : the arsurr.ent and evidence should reach the public ear as well as the' ear of the commission. To accomp- j lish this, bulletins were prepared and have been, sent out two or three times a week to the newspapers and other publications of the country, to legis-j lators, members of Congress, gover-; nors. college i)rofessw)rs, commercial organizations, shiijers ahd everyone j ele who would have an interest in, or, whose opinion would be likely to in-; flence the case for ; or against the' railroads. These, bulletins set forth! the railroads' cost of living and from' every possible point of view presented the-reasons why the railroads should, be allowtd to increase rates, I Senator La Follette thinks that this effort to lay the case for the railroads before the public was a crime, and he proposes to prohibit by law anything of the sort in the future. So far as heard from thrie is no one but the Wisconsin Senator who holds this view. Ou the other hand, the rail roads have been congratulated upon the frankness and effectiveness witi which they have set forth their case. Electric Railway Journal.

And at each corner of the lotus, coin pitting the square, were triangular panels of delicate water flowers, and through the water the carneltan and the agate and the Jasie'r of which they were fashioned shone strangely with vivid gleams. All rourw! the pool of the lotus used to sit the flow ers of Shah Jehan'a garden of girls, and there Is no pool cn earth that has reflected the Image of such beauty.
