Department of Public Works, and bids will bo called for within tho next thirty days. Tho last legislature appropriated the sum of $12,000 for this work, which will not be sufficient to complete the entire 4,000 feet of embankment need ed, but the amount available will be expended and it is expected that enough money to complete the job will be obtained from tho Legislature dur ing tlje (comlng session. A conference on the subject was held Yesterday inornlng between Frandls Shingle, A.. F.

The matter was also taken up with Repre sentatives Rice, Sheldon and Coney when Campbell was on Kauai recent ly. y, B. olid "tne "Superintendent of Banks Are Liable For License Fees THE OUTRIGGER CLUB SHOULD BE SUPPORTED Honolulu, Der. IS, lflOS. EDITOR STAR. It begins to look, now that Mr. Ford has gone awny, that tho Outrigger Club will come to un un timely eutl unless nil tlio old members, and not a few new ones, rally to Its support. And this Is a great pity, for no more picturesque, or more daring or exciting and luteroitlng sport can bo found than this surf-canoe ami surf board riding. Already It has been shown what can be done in this lino for without any outsldo aid this club has given Borne of the finest exhibitions of skill in this line ever witnessed hero. And it's doubtful if anything was done here, during the time the fleet was here, tnat could equal the regatta that was given upon a Sunday afternoon and which was enjoyed Immense y not only by the sailors, but by the residents as well. That was a gala day indeed and it will live in the memories of those who saw it to the ond of their lives. The Illuminated canoe and surf board exhibition was also a grand display. showing what can bo done in that di rection, and should be encouraged and ' supported by all those that care for' tho growth and advancement or these islands. For It's my opinion that no more effective advertising of Hawaii was ever done than has been done by the Outrigger Club, nor have any of tho sports that have been given here sur passed in exciting interest those' given 1 by this club. It's true this club is not everything ono could wish but it must be remem bered that It is only In an incomplete state or In the formation, and there Is no telling what It may grow Into if we can only keep up an Interest In It. But to do this we must have men at tho head of It who will take a live in terest in It, and see that everything about the placo is done. Jn a careful, skillful and business-like manner. It is not supposed that anyone can take tho place of Mr. Ford, whose whole heart and soul was in this thing, but much can still be done. In regard to the construction of tho grass house, etc., many think a club house would In many ways be perfer ablc, and probably It would. But wo must remember that Mr. Ford's idea was to make this club represent, as far as possible, a purely Hawaiian in stitution, that would in a measure preserve the old Hawaiian homes, tra ditions and sports, and therefore to make it more acceptable to the tourist and more Interesting to them. Some of those grass houses, too, can also be turned to good account and used as dressing rooms, with bit' On alter ations, and this should be done at once as tho rooms now used for these purposes are entirely Inadequate to ac commodate so many members. Something will also need to be done about puttlug In lawns and shade trees, and seats and tables, and many other things, which will wonderfully improve the place and muke It an Ideal placo of resort. Some now rules will also bo necessary In regard to the uso of tho canoes and paddles, etc. But I regret to say, Just now everything is at a standstill for the want of funds, and this is a great pity because tho floor of the dancing hall will soon be spoiled if a roof is not soon put over it. I will say that Mr. Ford deserves all tho pralso for what has been done for promoting this club; and great credit Is also duo to tho junior members who have so ably supported him in his untiring efforts, and It's to be hoped that tho same members will show a like disposition to work for so god a cause.
