It isn't only the business firm or professional man
who now raises his correspondence above the
mediocre through aid of the printer's art.

that at once raises your letter above the dead level
The additional cost per letter is trifling. .

The statement is made that at many
of the dance halls in the country dis

seen dancing away with grown men
of many nationalities. The dance
halls are the recruiting stations for
far worse places and many a young

Judge Stuart and Lands.
There are two suggestions in the
mandamus charges of Judge Stuart
against the governor and commis
sioner of public lands, which have, to
do with the important questioii of the
Territory's pu'ill': lands, which will

for throwing the public lands wide

Judge Stuart is probably to be ex
cused for his blunder, for the reason
that much the same error is made on
the same point by many new-comers.
After he has been here long enough to
go over some of the public lands of
the Territory and study conditions

I On the Other Islands
Girl Murderer Convicted.
Jose Belineuva, a Filipino, charged
with the horrible murder of Harriet
Kunane .the Kohala school girl, sev
eral weeks ago, was convicted in
Judge Matthewman's court in Kailua,
last week. The evidence was circum
stantial, but very strong. The penalty
will be death. The murder was one
of the most inexcusable and dreadful,
in the history of the islands.
The finding of a gaudy side comb
in the millinery store of Mrs. W. J.
Stone, of Hilo, which was burglarized
last week, has led to the belief that
a female raffles has been responsible
for a number of store robberies in the
Rainy City recently.
Big Storm Damage on Big Island.
Over 24 inches of rain in four days
time, in the Hilo district, caused a
great amount of damage. The Hilo
railroad was blocked by many slides
of earth, and about two miles of
county road was ruined by washouts.
In the Kau district, where an almost
equal rainfall occurred, cane has been
badly damaged, as well as roads and
Row About School Funds. " J
The Honolulu supervisors have
clashed with their county attorney's
department over interpretation of the
law relating to the spending of school
funds. The attorneys hold that the
county cannot legally transfer balan
ces from appropriations for one dis
trict to another, though it may use
the money after December 31. Super
intendent Kinney, of the department
of public instruction, states that other
counties have interpreted the law dif
ferently and are so using these appropriations.
A like question was recently raised
on Maul when Superintendent Kin
ney declined at first to approve a pro
posed transfer in order that money
might he available for paying for the
construction of the new teachers' cot
tage at Hamakuapoko. The matter
was finally straightened out and the
The big passenger liner Great
Northern, of the Hill system, sails

proceed to Hilo, where she is due to
arrive on December 3. At midnight
of the same day she will sail for Hono
lulu, and on the 6th, will start for San
Francisco, which trip is to be made in
four and a half days. The Northern
Pacific railroad company is advertis

Made from the right crude
The Jury of Awards at both San Francisco
and San Diego Expositions found an oil
made from California asphalt-base crude,
highest in Rubricating efficiency. That oil was
Zerolene. The fact, too, that such unbiased author
ities as a U. S. Naval Engineer, engineers of the
Packard and Ford Motor Companies, and others,
have also gone on record in favor of oils made
from asphalt-base crude in accord with the de
cision of the Exposition juries proves that Jiero
lene is made of the right crude, and made right.
