The Ililo Fire Department is up against a hard proposition. For instance, the electric light bills since July have not been paid, and in re sponse to n letter Mr. White of the office of Superintendent of Public Works says he is of the opinion that the chief engineer should settle these bills out of his own pocketbook. The trouble is that no appropriation was made for the Ililo Fire Depart ment other than a $900 payroll and a certain stun for the purchase and maintenance of a chemical engine. Strictly construed, this leaves no money to pay incidental expenses. The money already advanced by the members of the fire department to the amount of $75 cannot be re paid. As a result of this state of affairs the engine room is in darkness and the fire department is like a boat at sea without sail or rudder. The blame for the situation may be everywhere or nowhere; the trouble is that the department is seriously crippled. If we were under the old regime resort might be taken of the L. A. Andrews scheme of drawing money for one purpose and using it for another. It is hardly probable, however, that Holloway would countenance a straw man on the payroll for the sake of getting at money to buy axle grease and charcoal. The only plan is to take up a subscription among the merchants to keep the department on an effi cient basis until another Legislature meets. ward, which carries the smoke and steam over the cliff. There can be no illumination above the crater un less there are clouds of some kind to give back a reflection. According to Dana's work on volcanoes this same crater uiu a continuous performance in 1873-74 lasting eighteen months. On sev- ernl occasions during this period the mountain was dark and the cra ter apparently not active. Upon one of these times of supposed in action a party ascended and a de scription of what they saw is as follows: "For the jnost part the floor of the crater was an area of solid black lava; but at one end (southwest) there was a fountain of yellow fire one hundred and fifty feet broad, which played in several but independent jets to a height of 150 to 300 feet. From the crater's edge the roar was like that of an ocean, rising and falling like 'the thunder music of windward Ha waii.' " It is altogether probable that K. D. Baldwin is correct, and that if Thk shipment of nearly 3000 bunches of bananas by the Rose crans shows there has been a healthy growth of this industry in the past year. While the growers have been securing good prices the benefit does not end with them. The ba nana business makes money for the railroad, the steamship lines, and gives employment to many men on steamer day. The acreage now in bananas in this district when in full bearing will open the eyes of many to the possibilities in this line of farming. A numukk of Ililo people received invitations by the Kinau to attend the inaugural ball at Honolulu. They were all rushing to the wire less office to reserve suites in the Young Hotel when looking at their cards again, it was discovered that the ball was already an historical fact. It occurred Tuesday evening December 8. The invitations ar rived in Ililo the 9U1. one were at the mountain top to night he would find it pumping red hot blood the same as reported by the numerous parties who have made the trip since October 1.

The additional information re quired in connection with the County Act and the consequent mission of Mr. Hatch is, more com plete details of what threatens the law as it now stands. Wherein is it vulnerable from the legal stand point and is it a foregone conclusion that the law will be annulled by the courts if it is attacked? As between Governor Carter and the Advertiser, the public knows very well that Carter worked for the County law and the Advertiser fought the county proposal as vigor ously as it was able, withdrawing from the contest only when it had to. The Carter-Hatch .movement will be in a better position to discuss intelligently when it is known whether the plan is to have Congress reenact the present County law as a Federal statute or broaden the Organic Act so that the relation of the Counties to the Territory may be more clearly established. The Territory of Hawaii wants the county law preserved, and although the Bulletin does not support an appeal to Congress to reenact every law the Legislature puts on the statute book, the prospecting tour of Mr. Hatch will be of great value if his exact purposes and exact find ings are given to the public. The public has no occasion to place con fidence in the morning paper's pro testation of good faith when deal ing with the County law. Bulletin. Kou a tloircc King. I Honolulu, Dec. 2.
