ST(Ht.M.MVi:r Mem,-Domipour of Itniu Does Ureal Damage. Waiatiucmte street is the princi pal stfeet in Hilo. It is paved from the v; (let- front to the Hilo hospital on the; hill, where the thoroughfure changes from n street to a country road and continues its paved way up to Kaumana. Last Tuesday at 2 o'clock p. in. Henry Vicars of the Kconomic Shoe Company crossed the stieet to have a few words with Demosthenes the Caterer who holds forth opposite. Ucfore the slioenian couh' recross the street to his place of bii'iiiess, he was compelled to telephone a clerk to bring him n pair if hip rubber boots. The clcrkydouncd a pair of the high watcrWitbbcrs, slung another pair across his shoulder and waded across n rushing torrent and safely conveyed his employer home. Th .t is how quickly the main street of Hilo became impassable last Tuesday. It had been raining a little. The rain gauge at Waia- kea showed a precipitation of a fracti -m of an inch last Saturday morning. Sunday morning another fraction. Monday morning it reg islcre't 1.07 inches. Tuesday morn ing the torrential figure of 7.75 inches wns reported. Wednesday raoriiiiig it was 9. Si inches. Mo. of this latter measurement of watei fell Tuesday between 7 a. m. and , p. in. At a little before 2 o'clock, the flood which had been side t.u'4 ed at the head of Waia- HILO jnienu -rrcct, refused to longer j oms of water, her other anchor be obcy on'-rs. It wanted a, straight j iE held in readiness to drop should tit tr i? ftca" .in'- took a header down the boulevard. It ripped up 1 the macadam, and rolled it seaward ! by the car load. Within an hour the street was like a river and water was almost running in at the ent rance to the Bank building and the business place of Theo. H. Davies & Co. The street was impassable to pedestrians. Hacks were in ' came into port Sunday evening be grcat demand and passenger. Strug-, fore a high wind. Her passengers gled in and out of vehicles, hub j were gotten ashore, but the bay deep iu water and horses splashed has been so rough ever since that through torrents up to Iheir knees, baggage and freight has not been Tt w.i Hilo's third visitation touched. The launches in the liar- from the Storm King within six months, and true to the Arkansas spitit which has been so diligently cultivated by the Department of Public Works, the storm found Hilo's roof unrepaired. A conser vative estimate of the cost of mak ing Waianuenue street as good as it was a week ago is 1, 000. Less than half this expended before the jg 0f Governor Taft on the Philip rain would have averted the dam- j vnc question by the Senate Coin age. The ounce of prevention was ' mtce 0I1 tue Philippines began to about to be realized in the work ( ,iay wjti, a series 0f questions by that had commenced at the head of Senator Patterson iu regard to the Waianuenue street under the assur-1 fitUe.ss of Filipinos for jury duty, mice from Honolulu that there 1 Pattcrsou asked whctltcr the native would be $10,000 immediately available for road improvement in this district. The work was pro gressing when notice was received from Honolulu that the funds were not available. 1 lie men were ac - coriluigly discharged by the Koad ,, , . r . , , ; jmj.hu. i. lew imsuiiers nave ueeu for some time engaged iu construct ing a culvert and a big trench of sufficient capacity to divert a flood from the street to Wailuku river. The unfinished state of this work allowed Hilo's main street to be again rendered impassable. lhe flood played havoc again 'code. Under the Spanish regime, along the course of the Waiolama said Governor Taft, the courts were stream. The culvert put in on not only sluggish, but notoriously Front street at Hackfeld's lumber j corrupt, nnd the first courts estab yard, where the damage was done lished by General Otis were no at a previous flood was too small to better. Under Spanish rule there carry away the pent up waters. A 'little after noon Tuesday, it was seen that the imprisoned waters would burst through somewhere. Accordingly a force of men were ordered to cut a trench beyond the culvert. Before they had proceeded far, the water broke through on either side of the culvert. At day break Wednesday morning there was a gap 80 or 100 feet wide in Front street through which the torrents of the day preceding had escaped to the sea. Grnvemeyer's rain gauge at Pii hoiuia registered twelve inches of rainfall Tuesday night and ran over at the top. These waters went down the Waiolama. Out houses, wood piles and everything loose or floatable was carried to the sea. On Ponohawai street the water was four feet deep, and many houses in that region tugged at their moorings like the ships iu the bay. A house near the road, be longing to C. Akai was loosened from its Inundation and carried to within a few feet of the crevasse in the gratle. A protecting wall had been put iu place by Hackfeld's from the sea to the corner of the old planing mill. This prevented the flood from making serious in cursions into their premises, al though the pounding of the surf tore away a large corner of recently filled ground. The rain storm was accompanied by severe winds shifting iu direc tion at various stages. The heavy seas combined with the fierce wind to make the shipping in the harbor uncomfortable. The Helen Brewer which arrived here light from Ho nolulu to load with sugar, came in iu a squall and has been pitching and tossing at anchor near the outer buoy ever since. She was fast by one chain iu over 100 fath- the strain have been to much. The Roderick Dim and two or three Island steamers also pulled at their anchor chains all through thestorm without dragging or snapping a wire. Much apprehension was felt j lest the storm might prove too fierce for the safety of the vessels moored in the bay. The Roderick Dim bor have not ventured outside the , Waiakea jetties except in case of absolute necessity, XAT1V1.S NEED TK.U.WNd. (luvcrnor of Philippines Tells or Island Corruption. Washington, Feb. 15. Thehear- population on which the voting franchise is bestowed could not be trusted to do jury duty. The Gov ernor replied in the negative, say ing they are so used to corruption , ;,, ti,e administration of justice that they could not be trusted. "They need to be trained," he said, "to have examples; they are not ready for jury duty." Referring to the code of proced ure iu the islands Governor Taft said iu reply to a question by Sena tor Culberson that it is an Ameri can code rather than a Spanish ' was a substantial denial of justice. Referring to the petition of the Federal party Governor Taft said all cases of imprisonment referred to were for military and not civil offenses. Practically there are no civil prosecutions for political of fenses at this time. Governor Taft said the original dr,aft of the Fed eral party platform had been sub mitted to the commission and that the declaration for statehood was then more explicit and was ulti mately addptcd. "My recollection," he said, "is that we said to the representatives of the party that this must be far in the future and that we could make no promises one way or the other." "Was not the commission respon sible for the formation of the Fed eral party?" asked Senator Dubois. "No, it was not," Governor Taft responded. He gave the names of several prominent Filipinos who had assisted iu the organization. They had, he said, consulted the members of the commission and the latter had encouraged the forma tion as far as possible, because the party was for peace. The promise of statehood had been no prominent part of the mission work of the leaders. Senators Patterson, Carmack and Culberson asked numerous ques tions based upon the memorial from the Federal party, calculated to bring out Governor Taft's idea as to what, if any, promise had been made to the Filipinos in the way of government for the future. Governor Taft advocated the es tablishment of a stable government for the present, with the under standing that some time in the fu ture the Americans and the Fili pinos could reach an agreement as to what should be done in the way of government or in maintaining relations; "but," he said, "whether the islands should have their inde pendence, whether they should be given a quasi independence or whether they should be made a State of the Union is so far in the futuro that I hare reached no con clusion." Replying to a question by Sena tor Carmack, ho said that he had uot considered the problem of possi ble statehood fifty years hence. He would favor a promise even of a form of government, such as is given the Territories of the United States. He also said he was op posed to extending the constitution to those islands. l'rnlso for Universities. London, February 15. Poultney tiigelow said today: "Whatstruck me most forcibly during my visit to the Middle Western universities was the superiority of such univer sities as Cornell, Wisconsin, Minne sota, etc., over the many famous Ivastern colleges in fitting students to take the lead in practical Ameri can affairs. The spirit that is con quering the neutral markets of the world is more stimulated at the headwaters of the Mississippi than at the Atlantic. The intellectual vigor of our Western universities is not yet appreciated." Awaiting Miss Stone's Release. Washington, Feb. 15. The State Department has received cable ad vices confirming the report that the ransom money for Miss Stone bus been paid to the brigand captors. It is not known when her release will occur, but it is understood that the brigands have made a condition that they shall have a period of a week or ten days in which to make sure their safe retreat before the prisoner is delivered up. New l'eittiiro of Canal Mutter. Washington, February 3. It is understood to be the purpose of the State Department to make the ces sion of proper coaling stations on the isthmus a condition of under taking to build an isthmian canal. This,is one of the factors that will be taken into consideration iu mak iug the final choice of routes. , n I V V ' "1 fi ' Sfil wr .' tkj t. VK i ) '' A , r l . 'M 1 Ok .A.' .., - .,,.
