Dr. Elliot of Hilo Makes Some Con
structive Suggestion for Future of
In view of the Rpnrral Interest at
present being taken in regard to the
fourth civic convention, to be held on
KrurI on the 26th and 27th Inst, the
fallowing letter of Dr. H. It. Elliot,
of Hilo, written to the Hilo Board of
Trade, should be of interest:
To the Directors of the Hoard of
Trade of Hilo,
I beg to submit the fallowing sug
gestions relating to the organization
of the annual civic convention to you
for your consideration.
(1) . The 1st Annual Civic Conven
tion was organized by this Board, and
certain civic organizations were invit
ed to participate. The purposes of
the convention were clearly defined
by myself in an address opening the
(2) . The organizations which were
represented at that tTme were The
Honolulu Chamber of Commerce, Ho
nolulu Merchants' Association, Maui
Chamber of Commerce, Kohala Civic
League, Kona Improvement Club, and
the Board of Trade of Hi'o. Invita
tions were issued to individuals upon
the island of Kauai, there being no
organization upon that island, then,
but none were accepted.
(3). The purposes of the conven
tion were defined to be development
of mutual and harmonious co-operation
between the various secti 'ns of this
territory by affording in these meet
ing an opportunity for better aequaln
tnceship and free discussion of com
(4). The fact that two of the organ
ization whicli took part in the first
convention are practically ignored in
tr.e invitations issued far the fourth
conven(ion to be he'd on Kauai this
month despite the facts that thev are
st.il thriving organizations atd have
totit'nued lo tivo steady and euthub-
iasitc supji'jrt to tht: oonver. ion move
ment each year suggests that it is
most desirable that the constituent or
ganizations entitled to the privileges
of the convention sha'.l be specifically
(5). Further, if the original pur
poses for which this convention was
called into existence are still consid
ered desirable it is very evident that
any limitation of attendance is a limi
tation of the usefulness of the con
vention. Obviously if we are to fulfil
these purposes in the fullest degree
every member of each participating
organization should be encouraged to
attend, and if any limitation is con
sidered necessary It should only apply
to voting delegates.
(6). The ideal meeting place far
these conventions is the city of Hono
lulu where there Is ample public ac
commodation for any number of vist
ors, and no necessity exists for ac
cepting private hospitality. It would
appear to be in the best interest of
the convention movement that this
fact shall be recognized in future and
that all meetings shall be held there
If it is still considered more profit
able that some meetings should be
held on the various Islands, then each
alternate convention should be held
(7). The convention exists for the
benefit of all of the participating or
ganizations, and each one is entitled
to a voice in the arrangements ma'fle
for each convention.
(8). The necessary expenses for
the management and entertainment
should be paid by contributions from
each organization, assessed propor
tionally upon annual income.
(9). To put any suggestions along
these lines into eifect it is absolutely
necessary that borne form of perma
nent organisation must be created for
(10). The form of organization
should be as simple and unobjection
able as possible. I suggest that it
will take the form of a written cons
titution covering the following points:
(a) . Definition of purpose.
(b) . Specifying participating organ
izations. (c) . Creating a board of manage
ment consisting of representatives
from each organization and defining
its powers and duties.
(d). Provisions for assessment for
(e). Provisions for future amend
(11). If these suggestions receive
the approval of the Board of Trade 1
further suggest that a communication
embodying them be sent to the Hono
lulu Chamber of Commerce, Ad Club,
Kauai Chamber of Commerce, Maui
Chamber of Commerce, Kohala Civic
League, and Kona Improvement Club
with" a statement that the Board will
introduce a resolution at the coming
convention asking for the appointment
of a committee to draft a written cons
titution for the future government of
these annual conventions with instruc
tions to report to the convention of
Yours very truly,
H. B. ELLIOT.
NEW K1NDERGARTNER RESIGNS.
Mrs. Dora I. Buckingham, who ar
rived on the last Wilhelmina from
the coast to take charge of the Kahu-
lui kindergarten, has resigned her po
sition after a ten days trial, and left
Maui by the Claudine on Wednesday.
Mrs. Buckingham brought with her a
splendid record of etiiciency from Ka
lamazoo, Michigan, but she was not
satisfied with her new position. It is
understood that she Intends returning
to the Coast.
Chursh I see the letter carriers in
Portugal save themself much walk
ing on Sunday by delivering letters at
Gotham But I should think the de
livery of the letter carrier would in
terfere with that of the preacher.

the market Is flooded with poor stock.
The market is fairly well supplied
with green vegetables, with prlc-M nor

are very scarce and are Felhnv, at lilth
prices. Only small quantities of dried
field corn have been receded in the
market to date. These Miipini'iif.- were

gated and the expenses charged to ihe
consignment. The price of peanuts is
extremely low. Quite a large shipment
was received from Kauai recently but
due to large quantities held by local
dealers it was thought best not lo put
them on the market for the time being.
There is considerbale demand for
breadfruit. Watermelon continue
plentiful. Due to the fact that polias
have been coming in large quantities
and the grocers have large stocks of
jam on hand, consignors are advised to
make only light, shipments.
The prices of livestock and dressed
meats remains the same.
Hides are bringing the cxctellent
price of lSVic. a pound for No. 1
There Is a big demand for Soudan
grass and Peruvian alfa'fa seed. These
two crops have proved very successful
In, every part of the Islands where
tried. A new supply of this seek will
be received by the next steamer from
