A NEGLIGENT ROAD BOARD.
The Road Board seems to have
gone to sleep. 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

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

work themselves, at their own ex

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
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
"The fact of a shortage remains
and the benefit will be felt next sea

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.

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. The closing

Tmc tariff is looming up again as
a disturbing factor in the harmoni
ous ranks of the Republican party.
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
ernor Dole to write to Boyd
requesting his return. Evidently
Mr. Wright was too busy to get
the letter off.
