The contract for the improvement of Waianueinie street is being carried out by the Department of Public Works. A journey through other streets in dicates that the Road Board is merely "standing round" with the energy of others as a pretext. Front street is full of bumps and holes and the longer it remains un repaired the worse it becomes and the greater will be the cost to fix it The distinctive clement in such 111 up. In Puueo the chuck holes are ! tcrcession now, is that it will com- just as numerous and broken ve hicles are a common experience of those who for the moment imagine they are driving or hauling on safe roads. The people of Hilo and Waiakea and Wainaku pay enough poll tax annually to keep roads and streets in a high state of repair. The fact that they are so rough and cut up is tolerably good proof that the Road Board is neglecting its busi ness. Wednesday and yesterday the teams of the Volcano Stables Com pany were employed by public spirited private citizens to haul gravel and make Front street pas sable for loaded wagons and to en able light rigs to be driven in a trot without breaking an axle. When the people grow so tired waiting for public officials to perform their du ties that they jump in and do the work themselves, at their own ex pense, it would seem that excuse for the officials would be hard to find. What is the Road Board doing? What has it done - and where does it keep itself? SUGAR CIRCLES PLEASED. In Honolulu the news of renewed activity in Hawaiian sugar stocks at San Francisco created a cheerful feeling. Broker Harry Armitage said to the Evening Bulletin: "I have received cheering letters from Mr. Pollitz and Sutro Co. The former briefly mentions the Euro pean advices and the sudden de mand for Hawaiian stocks thereby created. Sutro & Co. state that the day the last steamer sailed they received a special wire saying that, owing to a shortage of the French beet crop, sugar in 1903 will be one mil lion tons short, and they add: "Specialists figure that the raw article ought to sell at between 4 and 4j cents a pound "When the news became general , mere was an oiu-time scramble for sugar stocks, and the list we are mailing you show how high they have sold. The advance, we are sorry to state, have not been main tained, some brokers anxious to make sales advising their clients to I Sell. 1 "The fact of a shortage remains and the benefit will be felt next sea son. Stocks are now low and pur chasers will make handsome profits by waiting a reasonable time." Secretary H. E. Cooper has been made Acting Superintendent of Public Works. He lias ap pointed Clarence M. White chief clerk temporarily. OUR NEW DIPLOMACY When Secretary Hay submitted a note to the European powers ask ing for concerted action relative to Uie oppression of the Roumanian Jews, the United States took an im portant step in her new program of world diplomacy which begnn with the .war for the liberation of Cuba. American initiative with respect to the alleviation of oppressed and helpless people in the heart of Europe is a long stride from the spirit of 'Cleveland's no less patriotic administration, in which he so sig nally stopped British aggression in South America. Cleveland made the Monroe Doctrine a literal rule of action in the narrower material sense that was in the mind of the statesman who promulgated it. The new era in American diplo macy which promises to be the crowning glory of American civiliz ation, and the most conspicuous characteristic of our Twentieth Cen tury era, has for its keynote, hu manity. In whatever corner of the world may be found a people de prived of the natural rights of property and the pursuit of happi ness, America is now in a position to lift up her voice in their behalf. Her good faith toward the people of Cuba and toward the world stamps her motive unselfish when ever she may proclaim it such. The Monroe Doctrine obversely ap plied does not mean that America may not make diplomatic interces sion in the cause of distressed Im ' inanity in any part of the earth. maud the attention, consideration, if not tion, of the powers. respect and the coopera- HAWAIIAN STOCKS IMPROVING, SAN I'RANCISCO, Sept., 25. The stronger tone in the price of raw sugar has brought about greater interest in Hawaiian sugar stocks. Prices have advanced and trading in these stocks has taken a turn for the good.

In Iowa, a plank looking toward the reduction of duties caused Speaker Henderson to decline to stand for reelection. In New York the protectionists stand pat. The bearing of the tariff upon trust problems will be a bone of conten tion likely to give the Democrats a better showing in the next Con gress. Tun latest mails from the coast brought no letters from Superin tendent of Public Works J. II. Boyd. Mr. Boyd was expected to arrive in Honolulu himself. His failure to return is explained par tially, by the fact that the late Treas urer Mr. Wright was asked bv qov ernor Dole to write to Boyd requesting his return.

Wretched Condition or City Thor oughfares Compclls I'coplo to Act. Mr. Wright of the Volcano Stables bas received an order from a committee of citizens to put teams to work hauling gravel to repair the chuckholcs on Front street. One team began hauling yester day and today three or four more will be added. Work was commenced near the junction of I'onoliawai where the street is in an abominable condition. The street throughout its whole length has been in need of attention for several mouths. Now it is next to impossible to drive a light rig hi a fast trot and remain in the buggv. The numerous holes make heavy Graying a very troublesome businesund the patience of the public has reached the breaking point. When Front street has been repaired at private expense, it is the intention of the Citi zens' Improvement League to continue me good work in l'uueo. llic met Hint this necessary work must be done by private subscription is sufficient commen tary 011 the energy and wisdom of the Hilo road board.
