Delegate Ktthio returned in the
Sierra from liis tri to Chicago ns a
delegate to the Republican National
Convention. The Hawaiian dele
gate was feeling in fine spirits when
seen by n Httlletiii reporter at his
office in the Kapiolatii building.
"The convention at Chicago was
an interesting affair to the Hawaii
an delegation," said he.
"Hawaii received the loudest
cheers of all in the roll call. When
Hawaii was called the convention
warmed up to a roar.
"The Hawaii delegation got
along well together. At the last
moment I was asked by delegate
iioogs to accent tlie position as
National Committeeman for Hawaii,
but I refused because I had already
pledged my support to A. G. M.
Robertson. Others of the delegn
tion also urged me to accept the
place but I told them the matter
was sprung on me too late.
"I would like very much to have
received the appointment as I think
it would have been to my advant
age in my work in Congress."
you win ie a candidate lor re
"Yes," replied Ktthio, "I would
like to be sent again. Not that
care so much for the job again, but
I believe a second term is absolutely
necessary to accomplish the most
for the Territory. livery member
of Congress must work himself up.
No man can go and do himself or
his constituents justice in one term.
This is not true alone of a Dele
gate. It is the same with the
members of Congress. It is the
old fellows who carry weight.
"If I go back I want better sup
port from our people. I want the
benefit of other people's knowledge
and do not want to be used as a
blind tool to present matters sub
mitted to me without being in.
strtictcd as to details.
"I consider the place where the
real work for Hawaii is to be done
is in the House of Representatives.
The Senators are better informed of
our requirements and it's in the
House where the missionary work
is to be done. If I am sent back to
Congress I shall not go as the re
presentattve of any faction or special
interest. I want the backing of all
interests and 110 one can be a good
Representative unless he has thecou
fidence of his constituents."
Coast to Orient by Wireless.
Washington, July 8. Following
a report by the Wireless Telegraph
Hoard ot the JNnvy, a contract was
signed with the Deforrest Wireless
Telegraph Company providing for
five of the longest wireless circuits
in the world.
The terms of the contract give
the government the right to make
full use of the Deforrest system and
me government pays lor tlie 11-
stallation of stations and equipment.
To the company is given the right
to .send all private and commercial
messages over these lines.
lhc contract accomplishes the
plan of wireless communication
from New Kngland to Panama and
makes it possible to expect within
a short time wireless communication
from New York to the Orient.
I lie government will erect sta
tions connecting the naval bases
between Key West, Guaiitanamo,
Cluebra nnd Panama. A station
will be placed in ower California
and connect with San Francisco,
which will connect with Seattle. A
station, which is one of the largest
in the world, is being operated at
Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Is
lands, and will soon be in touch
with a station in Kamchatka, Jap
an, for which the required conces
sion 1ms already been granted and
fiom there the plan is to connect
with the Japanese government
system, which is proving a marvel
in modern military operation. The
Deforrest Company is building at
Panama a mast which will be the
highest used for telegraphy in the
world and capacity, it is said, of
sending from 2000 to 3000 miles.

Noles of progress come from the
island of Hawaii which are very
cheering in nature. The first ship
ment of rails for the Hilo Kohala
railway will be due in August by
the ship Starbuck. It will be
sufficient for laying the section,
fourteen miles lone from Hilo to
Hakalau. In the meantime tli6
contract has been let for the man
ufacture of tics for the road and
they are now being cut in t)laa.
The engineering data of the line
is sufficiently advanced to enable
the company to begin the work of
construction as soon as the rails
arrive. Prospects are favorable for
securing the right of way without
difficulty. The company docs not
anticipate any delays in beginning
or carrying on active operations.
There is no serious hazard in
predicting that the building of the
Hilo Kohala railway will mark
an important epoch in the develop
ment of the largest island of this
group. Meanwhile the local enter
prise of Hilo is proving itself to be
of a live character in the prosecu
tion of new industries. Much has
been published lately about the
vigorous measures under way for
creating a large banana export
trade. Now the preserved fruit
industry is coming up swimmingly
The Tropical Fruit Co. of Hilo
is manufacturing guava jelly, papa
ia sweet pickles, pineapple pickles
and chutney. Its first shipment of
forty cases went forward to San
Francisco in the stcatnernntcrpri.se
last Tuesday. By the steamer
Arizonan this week a consign
ment worth $1200 is sent direct to
New York. The company claims
it has assured markets for all it can
turn out. It has the lease of 6000
acres of laud bearing gttavas in
Puna, together with a contract for
carrying the fruit by rail into Hilo,
where the canning factory is
San Francisco, June 28. The
International Association of Fish
Story Prevaricators held a meeting
last night at 3637 Powell street,
and awarded the annual prize to
the ranchers at Kona. Hawaiian
Islands. This was the story which
gained honor for the islands, and
it was received only a short time
before the meeting being the very
last one entered in the competition:
Through all the mouths of May
and June, up to a week ago, the
ranchers in the Kona region have
been finding their cows running
dry, strangely out of season and
without apparent cause. Fears of
some new disease were entertained
and so experts were engaged to
study the supposed malady. The
health of the animal seemed to be
exceedingly good. Upon observing
that only the cows that grazed a
long the seashore were affected in
this startling unaccountable manner,
the investigators concluded that a
gang of shore pirates were stealing
the milk. Accordingly armed watch
men were secreted in the grazing
district to discover and capture the
thieves. The thieves at last were
found, but they proved to be flying
fish. The fish came ashore at night,
flying in schools so large that entire
herds were robbed of the milk in a
very short space of time. The story
is suppotted by the old natives of
the island, who say that such de
predations by the flying-fish were
heard of as far back as the ilajs of
Captain Kidd. "Hut they didn't
keep cows as long ago as that",
argued one man who heard the
oldest inhabitant tell of the previous
instance. "Of course not," coin
cided the aged islander "The flying
fish got so bad there wasn' t any
money in keeping them."
A III), Mill.
The Honolulu Iron Works has
been awarded the contract to build
for Alexander & Baldwin's sugar
plantation at Makawcli the biggest
sugar mill in the world. It will be
a twelve-roller mill with revolv
ing cauc cutters and a Krajcwski
The proposed I
mill will be larger than the II. C.
& S. Co. plant at Puiieenee, Maui. I
It will be installed during the year . be taken at the first unusual loose
1905 and be ready for the big iQofi uess of the bowels. Sold by the

The Merchants' Association of
Honolulu is taking up the matter
of steamship rates with an earnest
ness and force of logic which ought I
to bting results. The report of its I
committee, is a public document of
great value. It not merely asserts
but proves that the steamship lines
arc discriminating against Honolu
lu, and( it details the methods by
which such hostility may be com
bated. If the Association brings about a
concerted public effort to ict lower
passenger rates between San Fran
cisco and Honolulu, it will not
have worked in vain; for it is sure
ly within the power of the men who
make He uolulu business for steam
ship lines to compel fair piny.
They can have lower rales' if they
want Ihcm. All that is needed is
for the heavy shippers to unite.
The Committee presented the
following table of round trip rates
from San Francisco:
Distance No. days Rate
. miles mi trip per day
4200 is fu. 35
7316 22 7.CJ0
8740 36 8.70
9970 30 9 50
1 1860 36 8.33
14200 42 .7.15
They recommend, "thatrepreseuta
tion be made to the Oceanic Steam
ship Company, pointing out the
comparative discrepancies in cost of
travel between Honolulu and other
ports in the Pacific by their vessels,
asking that in view of past support
afforded by this community it is en
titled to as low rates as are provid
ed for Tahiti, which would be on
the basis of a $50.00 rate for a sin
gle trip between San Francisco and
Honolulu, or $90.00 for a round
trip, and requesting that an im
mediate answer be given, as other
plans are in contemplation by this
Association. Furthermore, that
sufficient accommodation should
also be. guaranteed by the Oceanic
Steamship Company for transporta
tion of all intending passengers
from this port. Should the Oceanic
Steamship Company meet these
conditions, the Association in re
sponse is to pledge its influence in be
half of the Oceanic Steamship Com
pany, so far as it can control travel
and freight during an agreed
Mr. Fairbanks At College.
Senator Fairbanks is in that long
line of Americans who have worked
their own way through college.
Leslie's Monthly for July has an
account of his career in search of
the higher education, from which
it appears that young Fairbanks,
by farm work and wagon-making,
had saved $41 by the time he
reached the age of fifteen years.
With it and one suit of clothes
he travelled to Delaware, O., where
he entered Ohio Wesleyan Univer
sity. He turned to account his
rudimentary knowledge of carpen
try by working 011 Saturdays for
a local contractor for $1.25 a day.
A few weeks after young Fair
banks arrived at college he fell and
split his only trousers beyond im
mediate repair. It was necessaiy
for him to borrow a pair from a
fellow-student, and the loan had to
be continued because he was denied
credit for a new pair at the stores
in the town. He had to send home
tor his mother to make him another
pair. Working in college during
the college year and in the harvest
fields in vacation, he was graduated
from the college and its law course
at twenty. At twenty-two he was
admitted to the Supreme Court of
Ohio, and later he went to Indiana
polis. New York World
