WHEN CAT'S AWAY, THE MICE- Judge Gilbert l- Utile of this Circuit Court now' absent on the mainland on n well earned sixty days' leave, granted by the Depart ment of Justice at Washington, might well expect the petty criti cism which squeaks from the small bore gun nt the foot of Church street. The exigencies which might arise to make the absence of the Judge a public calamity arc freaks of a jaundiced imagination fully as absurd as the dismal prediction that the Judge may not return until next fall. Another story, proceeding from the twin spirit of the small bore gun is the "disguise" racket dished up by O'Hricn, formerly an Adver tiser heeler, now a free lance in San Francisco with the columns of the Advertiser as his best market. Judge Little did not book on the vessel that carried him to Krisco. That was his privelege and he showed his sense in the course he pursued. To have booked in Ho nolulu would have been giving notice to suspicious and unscrupu lous enemies like the "small bore" who would have nt once sent on the same boatn shower of telegrams with the purpose of paving the Judge's vacation pathway with thorns. The Judge eluded the Dole Advertiser spies by seven days, hence the "Smith" story is con cocted to discredit him nt home. There are a few who would not crook a finger nt the Judge when he is nt home, who rise and squeak merrily when he is on the other side of the ocean. PROGRESS IN. SIGHT. A preacher of unusually devout turn of mind was blest with an heir. In the pulpit next Sunday he said among other things in his prayer, "We thank thee I.ord for the "succor" thou hast sent." Alter being bufTetted with flood and storm, with bridges falling and roads crumbling, the advent of a program of activity in making pub lic improvements awakes a similar degree of thankfulness with nil Ililo people. Superintendent Hoyd has more friends to the acre in the Ililo Dis trict than any other incumbent in the Capitol building offices. When every thing in the District goes wrong and. a howl of curses arise against Fate, the man in the Public Works office who is trying to make cents do the work of dollars is. likely to believe himself the target of maledictions. The truth is far different. When Ililo kicks, the kick is against fate; her attitude toward Mr. Hoyd is one of thank fulness for tin "succor" sent and the succors to come. A BREAK WATER NEEDED. All business men and plantations financially interested in the quick dispatch of sugar from the Port of Ililo will see by the news of the last month, how it would be money in their pockets to have a break water constructed in this bay at the earliest possible date. Shipping here were practically storm bound for a month. The interests in volved call for concerted and vig orous action in behalf of this big improvement. The business nieni of Ililo and the planters of this! Hefore another issue of the Titl Islaud should get together and 1 hunk appears, the Kuterpri.se will formulate a plan of action with the have arrived in port and steam coin purpose of obtaining early consider- uiuuicatiou between Ililo and the atiou of the matter by Congress. Mainland will have been established. Action of the vigorous never-let- Ililo's independence and larger up sort; action of intelligent con- commercial importance will date cert on the part of city nnd country from the day of thc arrival of the alone, will achieve results. Hilo . splendid Matson liner. has .supinely waited for .something The currents of prosp' erity will run in this direction only by the hardest kind of effort on the part of Ililo men to divert them from the easy channels formed by the Industry of longer headed rivals. The business and plantation in terests which will be affected by Ililo harbor improvements could well afford to send n special repre sentative to Washington to work for what we ought to have. With n distinct nnd positive mission to perforin, the right man could do much for the patient city of Ililo. The construction of extensive improvements, not only would be worth much to the shipping inter ests here but would give employ ment to hundreds of laborers and put money into circulation in the community which otherwise would go into some obscure swamp in Arkansas or Tennesec. Ililo men and men on the wind ward side of the Island of Hawaii must take the initiative. REORGANIZE THE MECCA. It will be very gratifying to the people of Ililo nnd Hawaii if the movement inaugurated by the Ililo stockholders in the Volcano house results in making that resort a first class stopping place. Such n result will be equally appreciated by the people of Honolulu who know the delights of a sojourn of n week or ten days on the edge of the crater, if there were but good hotel accom modations. The trip to the Volcano and a rest of a few days at the Volcano house is the most inviting part of the Island itinerary of the majority of the visiting tourists. The hotels of Honolulu, in their showing of inducements to bring travel to these Islands have no better drawing card than that of the volcano the road to and from it and the comfortable tavern of rest at the crater. This being so, it will be surpris ing if there is not immediate re organization of the hotel proposi tion along broad nnd generous lines. A first class Volcano house would claim many visitors and outing par ties of Hilo people during the sum mer months. This trade formerly was an important source of revenue to the mountain hotel, but latterly, families and parties have preferred to camp independently. The Vol cano house should continue to be the pleasant mecca of the tourist and the tired. REV. MR. CRUZAN RESIGNS. The resignation of Rev. J. A. Cruzan, pastor of the First Foreign Church read from the pulpit by himself at the Kaster service last Sunday, breaks the bonds between pastor and flock, which have ex isted for four years. The sundering of ties like these is a sundering of nerves, no matter what be the exigencies that may have prolonged or shortened the pastorate term. No man in secular life toils four years in a vineyard, but that he forms an affection for the vines. The tendrils which he teaches to cling to artifi cial supports entwine themselves also about his heart. The fruit which he plucks in the Autumn is the joint product of the bounty of nature, his own vigilance and prayer. And when fortune calls the husbandman to other fields, he is conscious of pain at parting with the old. In the spiritual vineyard the same processes are at work. The husbandman is cultivating vines which never die; he is training tendrils which spring from the soul. The fruits garnered, arc benedic tions from Heaven and gratitude from thc childrcn of men. Spiritual and social ties are bonds of kinship and arc broken heedlessly only by the flippant heart nnd shallow soul. HAIL THE "ENTERPRISE." In honor of such an event, it wil t0 tur P for rt long time. be proper nnd fitting for the citizens nnd business men of Ililo to give thd Kntcrprise nnd her officers n hearty reception and welcome. Captain Mntson who will arrive in his good ship should be given n levee and every' handshake he is given should mean loyalty to the line which must some flay have its Sonoma, Ventura, Sierra, etc. A HOME INDUSTRY. The fact that better carriages, wagons, phaetons, harness and saddles arc made in Ililo than can be shipped from the Coast may not be generally known, but it is a fact easy of demonstration. The roads of this Island demand heavier con struction than is usually put into vehicles on mainland factories. All vehicles made irr the shops of the Volcano Stables Company arc made under a practical carriage builder's supervision, a man who knows the roads and what they require. t The ravages of insects and climatic con ditions, upon all kind or wood work, arc also prevailed by treat ment of the wooden gear before it goes into the vehicle. The nucleus is already formed here for a great industry in the line of manufacturing vehicles. The consumer would without doubt find it a saving of money to purchase the Ililo brand ol wagon, buggy, hack or road wagon. The industry is worthy of encouragement qs1 n municipal nsset. Tnrj Tkihuni: has received from Jared Smith, Director of the U. S. Kxpcrimcnt Station at Honolulu n small lot of seeds of the cork oak. These will be freely given to per sons who call at the office nnd .will plant the acorns nnd give the sprouting trees n fair chance for life. ..
