Editor Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
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

showed that Freaks proposition met

Frear said he had affidavits that the
amount involved is bouj; $21,000 and
that no further appropriation! than the
one in the pending 1bll-iwould be ne
cessary. The $23,000 would come out

The members "of the committee
strenuously objected ;to including the
Frear .amendment, on. the ground that
it binds the government to pay an
unsettled and unagreed-upen amount
of attorneys' fees and other expenses.
Chairman' Clark made this signifi

"I would like to make this remark
that if you write thi3 sort of an am

get the bill through.
Other members of the committer
also intimated that they would op

insisted that the claims should go be

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.
