Secretary Carter is disposing of the Chinese Fund in the only hon est way open to him. He is paying it back to the depositors to whom it belongs. The Tkiiiunk has urged this disposition of the money ever since it was wrongfully seized by II. K. Cooper, when Territorial Secretary. Had Cooper and Dole been honest in handling this fund Treasurer Wright would have had no chance to embezzle and the Ter ritory would have been spared the odium of an official scandal. BAND ON FOURTH. On general principles the Bulle tin believes in giving Hilo what it asks for, but the request for the band this year is a little too much. Though the Kohala railway open ing is an important event, the Pacific cable lauding in Honolulu is of suf ficiently increased import to the world at large and Hawaii in par ticular for the band to remain at the capital on the coming Fourth. Bulletin. It is proper to remark that the Fourth of July in Hilo this year will be a proposition not to be sneezed at and an event well worthy of the presence of Berger and his band. There has been nothing heard or said of any effort on the part of Honolulu to properly ob serve the anniversary of America's independence. The lauding of the cable from Manila is more or less a problematical affair and may not occur until July 10. Honolulu has insisted that Berger's band alone was worthy of Territorial aid, and with such aid would pc at the dis posal occasionally of outside places. There are but few times in the year when the people of this island come to Hilo in large numbers. The Fourth of July is one of these times and it would appear that they are entitled to the music they subsi dize, on an occasion when they will have an opportunity to hear it. Those who are disposed to criti cize the Fire Department of Ililo for lack of interest in their work should direct their attention to the apathy and indifference shown in other quarters. Tuesday an adver- tised meeting of citizens and prop erty owners was held at Fireman's hall to discuss ways and means to improve the Fire Department. There was less than half a dozen of the principal property owners of Hilo present. There were but two merchants in the meeting. The people present were young men, members of the Fire Department and others who are interested in seeing a good department main tained. At such times it is the duty of property owners and those repre senting property owners to be on hand. By attending such meetings, an impetus would be given to the enthusiasm of the young men who volunteer to fight fire. Tins three hills just back of Hilo are the most prominent topographi cal features of the environs of the city. The pretty legend of these hills, told in a story by Miss Har riet Hapai and published in the Tkiiiunk, will be perused with in terest. The legend, handed down from ancient times, is most excel lently crystallized in permanent form in Miss Ilapai's story. Her cleverness with the pen should be further exercised in reducing to writing many other local legends, which will pass into oblivion, un less rescued as written stories. Tun market for clean cotton rags at the Tkiiiunk office 1ms been struck by a panic. The bottom has dropped out and the price has gone flat. The offerings far outstrip the demand. In fact the Tkiiiunk "Devil" refuses to accept them at any price. Holders of this com- niodity will therefore do well to bale , . - . , their rags for next year's market. SOAK EM. To tell the truth it does not mat- tcr much why a representative of the Herald censed to be secretary of the Allied Trades. It is of still less importance what language he used in laying aside 'his robes of office. The fact remains that the Herald is hostile to the organization of citi zens, and it is a further fact that its representative in withdrawing from the labor union said that it was im possible for ,,., Q scrve tw6 mM. ters. It is also a fact thai the Her ald representative gave to the Tri bune for publication a letter in which occurs the statement that the maiumcr of the Herald had never requested or notified the said ex- secretary to resign. It is also a fact that the said ex-secretary said by way of explanation: "The only thing 'Stack' ever said to me on the subject was: 'Clem, if that printing goes to the Tkiiiunk I'd pull out as soon as possible.' " These troublesome details are for the information of our citizen read ers that they may be enlightened regarding motives that sometimes surge through a patriotic bosom. Tun work done by the fire fight ers at the Volcano street fire Satur day morninn speaks for itself. A valuable wooden building within eight feet of another consumed by the fire, was saved. Whether the men worked like trained fire fighters or not, they have results to show to their credit. It was the first fire in two years. The alarm came in the dead of the night. The fire com pany has not trained at all for the two years past. That they succeed ed in turning on a stream of water is a commendation. Tin; Allied Trades should not lose sight of its opportunity to do good service to the community in the matter of making citizens. If the organization succeeds in mak ing voters of all the laboring men in the Hilo District it will have per formed a service entitling it to first consideration. If the organization runs short of funds for this purpose the Republican party should help it out with financial assistance. Tiiu report of K. K. Richards that the people of Kona are greatly interested in Hilo's plans to cele brate the Fourth should cause a re doubling of effort to give the people a time worth their trouble. The present plans of the various com mittees will do this, and there is no abatement of zeal in the prepara tions all along the Hue. The much abused and scandal ized fire engine proves to be alright when put to the test. This is an other instance showing how the perennial Ililo Knocker can ruin the reputation of even an inoffensive piece of machinery. Tin; meeting next Tuesday night for the reorganization of the Fire Department should be attended by all citizens who have buildings and property, liable to go up in smoke. Thk rehearsals for the B. P. O. Elks minstrel show are being con ducted regularly and the public will not be disappointed with the result at Spreckels' hall on the evenings of July 3 and 4. This observance of Decoration Day with services at the Hnili Church Sunday evening should call out the entire patriotic people of the city. much for to spend Hu.o would like very Superintendent Cooper some of that hurry up money in this vicinity.

BUT OUR POI CAI.lCITY. (From Hie Independent.) The Hilo Tkiiiunk charges that. C. I,. Clement had to resign from the office of secretary to the anti Asiatic labor movement on account of pressure from the Japanese nnd their sympathizers. All this will not induce an eruption of Kilauca nor affect the price of sugar, but it again reminds one of the importance of solidified endeavor in worthy pur poses, and of the fact that Hilo brain-pans are not equal to the oc casion. There was a time when sponsors of citizen labor hoped 'for something in the Hilo movement; but with the appearance of the in numerable factions and broils of the Rainy City in the game it may be counted "all off." 'ITAUIIKKS UNION. Final Meeting of the Yrnr nt Homo of Miss I.yinnu. The lost meeting of the year of the Hilo Teachers' Union was held Tuesday evening at the home of F. S. Lyman. The program was listen ed to by about twenty teachers.. The work of the year in Roman history was finished by Miss Deyo, who presented a sketch on Modern itaiy. ine treat ot tue evening was the exhibition of European photographs and a descriptive talk by Mrs. Hyde. Mrs. Hyde's col lection was made by herself in Switzerland and Italy and is very fine. She displayed at the meeting over one nunureu views. The committee on work for next year presented its report. The principal work will be in English History. English Literature will be studied contemporaneously with the history. In Art, Florence and Venice will be taken up first and later on Art in England will be taken up. The study of English art will include English Cathedrals. The feature of Current Events will be kept up next year by the teachers, with the addition of an educational paper each meeting. At the business session Tuesday night Miss Deyo was elected Chair man of the Circle and Miss Sever ance, Secretary. The following committees were appointed: His tory, Miss Deyo and Miss C. A. Potter. Literature, Mr. Baptiste, Miss Voder and Miss McCord. Art, Dr. Wetmore and Mrs. Sev erance. Education, Miss Coau. Current Events, Miss M. F. Pot ter and Miss Ellen Lyman. Atter tue work ol the evening refreshments were served to all pre sent. The Million Dollars. Honolulu, May 23. Payment of the million dollars United States money appropriated by Congress to pay awards of the Fire Claims Com mission began at the First National Bank of Hawaii this morning. Froin the opening of the- bank until noon a long line of awardees filed up to the pay teller's wicket. The clink of gold coin and the rustle' of crisp Treasury certificates proceeded merrily. Cashier W. G. Cooper stated at 12 o'clock that the pay ment would continue so long as the line held out, if it took the rest of the day. There was no hitch in the pay ment of claims other than a little difficulty over assignments early in the day. Treasury Agent W. F. MacLennan, however, made a de cision which set the current run- J ning again with a comparative de- I gree of smoothness. This was to 1 the efiect that original assignments I would be accepted without having been recorded where the assignee I held both the original issignnient and the duplicate of it. By having the duplicate he has evidence on which the balance represented by the Territorial bonds may be col lected. An attorney occasionally appeared in the line, mostly composed, as it was, of Chinese. There were one or two large awards, ranging about 1 the $15,000 figure, paid this morn Jing. Until the day's work was concituieu tue aggregate ol pay ments could not be given out for publication. The great thing is that the million dollars has actually begun to flow intothegeneral money circulation of the community. DKCOUATION II.IV.

Fire almost destroyed the lodg- nig uuusc un vuiiunu street ucioilg - ing to Mrs. Ross last Friday night. ! The fire which was discovered a little after midnight, was stayed by the efforts of firemen, policemen and citizens before it did much damage to the new portion of the house. But water and breakage of furniture in the new house com-' bined with the devastation of the) flames in the rear building ran the 1 total loss up to nearly $2500. The blaze was discovered by a 1 Mr. McDonald, who ran at once 1 and aroused Captain Brown,' who, resides across the street. Captain ' Brown turned in the alarm and ' after several minutes the hose carts ' in the hands of volunteers came upon the scene. The lack of ex perience on the part of Hilo people in fighting fire or handling fire ap paratus caused a great deal of de lay. The members of the fire de partment had been so long without drill that they did not work in har mony or to the best advantage. However, the blaze was extin guished in good time, as shortly after a stiff breeze came on which would have defied the efforts of all had it come sooner. The first suspected cause of the fire was incendiarism. Mrs. Ross had ejected a trio of strangers from her house the day before and these were arrested on suspicion. Sub sequent investigation showed them able to prove an alibi and they were accordingly released. Monday, Sheriff Andrews em panelled a jury to investigate the cause of the fire. The jury was composed of Messrs. E. N. Holmes, Geo. Kainui, Philip Victor, F. Bru ghelli. Bert Schoeu and Allen Wall. The jury held sessions Saturday, Monday and Wednesday, examin ing a large number of witnesses. Noli co.
