W. llAWORTH - Editor. HAWAII'S JUDICIARY. The editor of the Independent nt Honolulu sheds tears because there arc a few American judges on the bench in Hawaii. That paper finds fault with the only article in Ha waii which bears the true Ameri can stamp. The Independent says: "Jurists they may all be and un derstand American justice and jur isprudence, but from what we have so far seen of them, they are not at all satisfactory in our way of think ing." "Our way of thinking" is of course another way of saying that judges arc wanted who will not give a square deal in all matters that come up before them. Ha waii does not want jurists on the bench or men who understand Am erican justice and jurisprudence. Legal learning and uprightness are also qualifications which impede the wheels of justice. It was un fortunate that McKinley and Roose velt felt that an appointee to the bench in Hawaii ought to be some thing of a lawyer, and in a measure acquainted with the laws and the spirit of the Courts of the United States. It was in fact an insult to the Dole Government and the old regime, for an American President to remodel the fountains of justice in Hawaii by appointing judges with brains and legal knowledge. The old Hawaiian system of ap pointing law clerks to the Supreme and Circuit benches was far more satisfactory to the old lawyers and to clients who owned shares in the Court. - An independent, upright judi ciary is the greatest curse that comes to any country. Nkxt week will be the Elk week in Hilo. A crowd of thirty-five from Honolulu, headed by District Deputy Grand Ruler, Dr. C. B. Cooper in coming. They come to establish a Hilo lodge, which will start with over fifty members. Arrangements arc being made to properly entertain the visiting Elks. Demosthenes has been nsked to pre pare a banquet. There arc no strings to the ordfcrs given and the least, it is said, will eclipse any thing yet given in Hilo. VUN.V WA'l'Kll. KONA'S BRIGHT OUTLOOK. The reported success of Mr. Coerpcr in promptly obtaining the funds for the Kona-Kau railroad is n most gratifying rift in the clouds hanging over the progress of the Koua district and means as well a great deal for the progress of the Territory at large. The success of this railroad pro ject means the opening to settlers of a district that has practically re mained undeveloped, but which offers some of the best home sites to be found in the Territory. Fur thermore, it is the aim of the rail road company to nid especially in the promotion of diversified indus try as it is believed the small farmers will be the best feeders of the line, and will, by virtue of su perior transportation facilities, be able to cultivate agricultural pro ducts other than sugar at a profit. At the same time the road is cer tain to give new strength to the sugar enterprises already in opera tion and assist in solving many of the difficulties under which the dis trict has labored. These Islands can easily produce all the vegetables and fruits needed to supply the local market. All that is necessary is cheap transpor tation and the men to cultivate the fields. Both these essentials are promised by the Kona railway en terprise as it is the plan ot the pio moters to solicit for the iiumigia tiou of American farmers to the district, following out as far as pos sible the scheme of the gieat conti nental railways. There is every reason to believe the new railway will be the nucleus for the upbuilding of just such a farmer community as has lung been sought, but has thus far got no further than the theoretical stage. When American capitalists are ready to invest their money in such an enterprise there is every reason why it should receive all the local moral and financial assistance it is within the power of our citizens and the Teiritorial government to give. Uvening Bulletin. Shipment or 0,000 Gallons Tor Hot IIIiib at Honolulu. H. I,. Williams, the promoter of the Puna sisal and Volcano Mine ral water enterprises arrived in Hilo by the Kinau this week with enough barrels to carryback to Ho nolulu 6,000 gallons of the life giving fluid which for ages has percolated through the volcanic soil of Puna and wasted itself in the sea. The famous warm spring in Puna, hitherto known only to the bathers who found rare virtues in their translucent depths, will furn ish a new export commodity for the Hawaiian Islands. Commercially, the warm waters from Puna will be known as "Ka waiakeakua Volcano Water." It will go into the marts of trade, a fierce competitor to "Shasta" and "Saner brim." ' Big houses in New York and other eastern cities have placed large orders and the Kinau I will carry it to Honolulu by the I hogshead, where it will be bottled for transmission to the Continent. Mr. Williams was formerly a Colorado mining man, and in that country learned a great deal about the mysterious properties of miner al waters both hot and cold. He came over to Puna some time ago on a sisal proposition and incident ally learned of the well known springs. He scented a bonanza. He secured a thirty year lease on 700 acres of good sisal laud and managed to include within the boundaries of the tract, the Vol canic springs. He enlisted in the scheme the copcratiou of Cecil Brown, prominent financier of Ho nolulu and 1 M. Hankey, a lead ing attorney in the same city. They formed a company. They have had their labels printed. The label shows the Volcano Kilauea in full action, the red cascade of mol ten lava, appearing in striking con trast to the cerulean blue of a per fect Hawaiian sky in the back ground. The company will have the distinction of putting on the market the only Volcano water in the world and the only mineral water from the Hawaiian Islands. The output for the Holululu trade will be shipped to Honolulu in barrels and bottled at the same place. All that is required for the export trade will be bottled in Hilo and shipped direct to San Francisco, New York or other cities from Hilo. The Hilo plant will be in operation within three mouths. Analyses of the water made by the Government chemist show the presence of a number of chemical pioperties of high medicinal value. The most conspicuous and active elements are chloiiue salts and sul phuric acid. Silica and magnesia are also present. The Company will place their product throughout the world and the promoters believe that the Puna springs will ere long be as wide famed as Hawaii itself. her first visit to the Coast; when Eugene Field was here in 1894, the year before his death, ho came alone. Mrs. Field is known to the ad mirers of the most original and best-loved of all Western writers as the heroine of his impetuous early wooing, the keeper of the family purse upon which he made such reckless assaults, and the inspirer of some of his best and sweetest verse. She was, before her mar riage, Miss Julia Sutherland Corn stock of St. Joseph, Mo. Eugene Field met her when she was 16 years old, and when he was still little more than a boy. This was just before he started on his famous six months tour of Europe. Upon his return he married her, in spite of strong objections made upon the score of her youth and his own improvidence. Hugo's Hlrtlulny. Paris, Feb. 26. The series of festivities to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Victor Hugo, which will last until Sunday next, opened this morning with a grand cere mony within the Pantheon, under the suspices of the Government. President Loubet, M. Waldeck- Rousscau, the Premier, and the other members of the Cabinet, the members of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies were present. President Loubet was yvarmly cheered along the route as he drove to the Pantheon escorted by a squadron of cuirassiers. The President and the Cabinet Ministers took their seats in the official tribune erected in the Pan theon, while in the transept beneath the dome were two other tribunes, one to the richt reserved for Mine. Loubet and the wives of the Min isters, and the other to the left for the members of Victor Hugo's family. The United States Em bassador, General Porter, sat in the front row of seats set aside for the diplomatic corps. Luk bun of Siuiiur Caught. Manila, Feb. 26. General Smith, in command of the UnitedStatcs troops on the island of Samai, cables that Lieutenant Stribler's scouts have captured Lukban, the notorious leader of the Samar rebels, and brought him to Laguan, capital of a small it-laud of that name north of and adjoining Sa mar. Washington, Feb. 26. General Chaffee today notified the War De partment that Lieutenant Stribler of the Philippine Scouts captured General Lukban on the 221I iust. The prisoner is confined at Laguan. Another capture is recorded in the same dispatch, namely that of William Dunston, said to be a de serter from Company C, Eighth Infantry, who had in his possession a lot of arms and ammunition and all of the tools necessary for the making of ammuniiion. He was captured by Second lieutenant Pratt, First Inlantry, at Caghaian, on the inland of Samar. The lieu tenant also destroyed the cuartel and the factory and killed eleven soldiers, besides capturing all of Dunston's correspondence. . Ciilmn Reciprocity. Washington, Feb. 22. The Re publican members of the Ways and Means Committee, who have been considering the questions of con cessions to Cuba at several meetings during the week, finally reached an agreement this afternoon which is considered a victory for those who have favored taiiff concessions to that island. The action taken was the adoption of a resolution author izing the President to negotiate a reciprocity treaty with the Cuban Mrs. Kugciio Field Coming. San Francisco, Feb, 27. Mrs. Julia S.
