regardless of the welfare of the public.
It has been known on this island for some months who the Ad

paper acted the part of wisdom it would have prevented the cm
tractors from entering into the denunciation of Holloway and 1!ov
land ami in that w ay would have furthered the interests of the
candidate who is the pet of the Advertiser and for various reasons
would have been doubly acceptable to the contractors.
The denunciation of the officers of the Department of Pubhc
Works by the contractors, if in ernest, may be accepted as the
highest recommendation that, could be given those officials and un
less those denunciations are of a specific nature and some material
charges substantiated the public in general will not think any tin;
less of the officials on account of vituperation on the part of a contrac
tor whose interests are diametrically opposed to the interests of
the. public whose interests it is the duty of the officers of the iJub
lie'Works Department to subserve.
The Superintendent of Public Works is no more responsible for
the scheme to build the Nuuanu dam than is any individual citizen
of the Territory. It is true that the dam has been an unpopular
affair from the first but every one knows that it was Carter who
caused the dam to be built and any blame attached to the same
should be laid to the door of this ex-official. The Dam was one of
Carters pet schemes and the officials of the Public Works Depart

Nature Fnkin at Teddy's Home
OYSTER BAY, N. Y., August ".
The village has had its share of
freaks and nature fakers, but the lat
est is a cobbler on East Main street
who can imitate the cries of animals
so realistically that John Durroughs
or President Roosevelt theinsclve
would be deceived. The cobbler is
Tom Scruggs, who moved into a little
shop directly in the rear of the e.e
cutive office above Moor s grocery
store last week. Tom's proficiency in
nature faking, while at first a matter
of interest and wonder, developed
into a nuisance to Secretary Lob'
It was the secretary who first dis
covered the cobbler's peculiar tal
ents. The shoe shop being consider
oblv off the street, the sounds could
net be heard by the passers-by, but
they floated into the open window of
the executive office all day, and the
noise was distracting to say the least.
Mr. hoeb was sitting at his desk one
day when he heard a peculiar cry as
of a dog in distress. lie went to the
window, but could see nothing, and a
few minutes later the sound was suc
ceeded by a particularly vituperative
parrot. The secretary knitted his
brows in annoyance and called to one
of the clerks to close the window. It
b?ing a hot day, however, the window
had to be reopened. Then sevcra1
birds began to sing. That wasn't so
bad, as the tylvan sounds had a sooth
ing effect. But when a tomcat began
to yowl, the secretary threw his pen
down Id disgust.
"A menagerie must have come to
town." he muttered savagely, "but, I
don't know why it should camp direct
ly uuderour window." The secretary
grew more interested, however, when
he found it impossible to locate the
sounds. They came from directly tin
der the offica window, but whenever
he looked into the yard it was al
Bolutely vacant. The thing took on
an uncanny aspect, and the, officii
force began to get nervous.
"There's a wolf out there or I wil'
eat my hat," said Assistant Secre
tary Latta positively.
"Ive heard hyenas," remarked
Chief Stenographer McGrew, "and
I'll bet a watermelon that there's one
down in the yard there somewhere.
You can't fool me when it comes to

a parrot and several birds," added
William Dulaney. "A circus must

"I'm going to find that noise or re

some one, so ail the forca went dowr

by occasional sounds of wild and tame
beasts, the hunters ca'ne upon Tom

Tom chuckled quietly to himself
and then uttered a quick warninL'.
Right at his ear the clerk heard the
ominous hiss of a snake. He jumped
about four feet and then looked
around rout iously. The cobbler was
still grinning and tli3 jig was up.
When the force closed in on him he
admitted the strange noises, and he
added that he practiced the urt lo
