Boyd and Mahaulu Sentenced
CHRIST the Lord is risen to-dny.
t Sous of men and angels say :
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
"Sing, ye heavens, and earth ropl .
Love's redeeiriug work is done,
Fought the fight, victory won:
Jesus' agony is o'er,
Darkness veils the earth no more.
Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ hath burst the gates of hell;
Death in vain forbids Him rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise.
Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Following our exalted Head;
Made like Him, like Him we rise;
Ours the. cross, the grave, the skies.

commodity they should receive the same fair treatment as any
other bill in which licenses or taxes cut a figure.
$3s With the County bill ou the racK. there is an absence of candi
dates who have announced themselves as willing to run for county
office. Nor is this at all suprisnig. No one who has any ''serious
inteutions" wishes to be a party to another fiasco such as the last
county election. It is a case of make haste ( or a declaration)

There is more truth than poetry in the above. Twenty years, or j
even ten years ago, had Gorkj dared to voice publicly what he says
to-day with apparant immunity, he would have been summarily
disposed of in Siberia. The Czar and his royal followers have seen
the heyday of their autocratic reign, and theplebian Russian has
indeed Japan to thank for the awakeuing.
j!5 The Governor is quoted as saying that so long as he remains
in office it is, and will be, his earnest desire to give the people of
the islands the best government it is in his power at administer.
Such expressions backed up by the administrating of and making
of such laws as will benefit the interests of the territory large and
small, are bound to make friends of those who are now opposing,
the Governor and h's Administration. If the people through their
Senators and Representatives have erred in making a law of tne
County Hill recently passed, and there is neither time nor remedy
to rectify the flaws before the adjournment of the present of the
present legislature, the only alternative is to see that the pledges
made by the Governor and the Republican party to the voters are
fulfilled. If after a trial the people feel that any revisions to the
County Bill will not bring i; up to their ideal or satisfy them, or
that County government is too expensive, and express a desire to
inaugurate a more economical form, the onus of not have given
county government a fair and unbiased trial cannot oe laid at the
door of a Republican Administration, legislatuie and party.
53$ The complaint against the liquor bill is that it is too broad or
to use a more common expression "it is a wide open" bill. At
present there is more illicit distilling and selling of okolehao, and
epeuic easy saloons man many prohibition states ever had. If
the Administration wishes to keep the saleof intoxicating beverages
in check the best way is to issue a license at 6uch a figure and with
such condkions attached as will demand of the licensee, inorder to
protect his own business, co-operation with the Administration in
the ferreting out the illicit distillicg and sale in his district. There
is not a respectable wholesale or retail liquor house in the islands
that would not gladly accept a license under these conditions and

liquor as any other commodity so long as its sale is permitted, and
its manufacture is lawful. The clause permitting any one with a
room of sufficient dimensions dividing it into five smaller rooms is
a bad feature which will only wreck havoc in the residence part of
a town and should be eliminated entirely. "Hotels" that are hotels,
are willing to conduct a buffet or bar on the lines as laid down by

Honolulu April 14 The sentence
of ex-Land Commissioner Edward S.
Boyd was affirmed this morr.ing by
a decision of the Supreme Court,
and he has begun the serving ' of his
ten years at hard labor. The deel
sion was by Frear and HartweU and
Juge De Bolt in place of Wilder, whe
was disqualified. Incidentally, the
decision settles the important ques
tion of the legality of the act of the
legislature which added another
judge to the Firt Circuit Court.
Stephen Mabaulu, former chief
clerk of the land office, was sen
tenced yesterday by Judge De Bolt
to one year's hard labor, for em
bezzlement of public money. Maha
ulu was under former Commissioner
Boyd, who is under ten year sen
tence. The clerk pleaded guilty and
asked for leniency, and In passing
sentence Judge De Bolt intimated
that he did not hold Mihaulu to be
the real culprit in the case.

known comeJian, is booked for a
starring tour in vaudeville for a
number of weeks, and will play the
principal Eastern houses. He will
make a special feature of a new song

style of comedy.

To Help Rice Market.
Honolulu Apr. 17. A combination
of merchants and others interested
is being formed for the purpose of
marketing Hawaiian rice and secur
ing higher prices to the crop. The
price at present is $2.75 per hundred
weight in twenty bag lots, while Jap
anese and Louisiana rice command
about four dollars. It is thought
that a better price for Hawaiian can
be obtained under the new plan of
marketing, and the price will be ad
vanced to $3.50.
The hui is to work along lines simi
lar to the Sugar Factors, Limited.
Those who are forming it hope to re
store some of the success of local rice
plantations Advances will be made
where necessary to carry growers.
"Dat Ain't The Kind of Grub I've
Been Getting Down Home," and
"Dinner Bells." Mr. Brown's suc
cess as a composer is assured by the
above hits . which he has written.

been working with Matt Heffernau

heating rivets for Mike Patton and
George Haggett, two boiler makers,
has decided that within the next 30
days he will quit hard work and re
turn to the boxing areua.
The work at the gulch has been
just what the Kid has needed to
harden his muscles for the prize ring
and he will be in better condition to

the same time McFadden turns up
his nose at such hard work, perfer
ing the course of training usually
pursued. Big Matt, the boss of the
job, says the kid is an excellent work
er and should be in the "pink" of
condition, and will feei sorry to lose
him, but of course realizes that there
is more money in the prize ring than
in heating rivets.

FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF
Kamalo rind Sisal
Honolulu April 18 There is some
talk of reorganizing Kamalo Planta
tion and making a sugar estate out
of it. Ex Speaker Fred Beokley
said this morning that on the ques
tion ot whether or not Kamalo was
reorganized and made a sugar plan
tation, depended the plantiug of a
large amount of sisal. There is a
large amount of land surrounding the
Kamalo Plantation holdings which
is suitable for cane. If the planta
tion is started and a mill provided,
the individual owners of this land will
put it in cane, selling their product
to the sugar company.
If the plantation is not started, it
Is expected that a good deal of this

a sugar plantation, a good deal of bis
