President Holmes Makes Annual Report The Good Accomplished by the Body During the Year An Important Factor in the Development of Hilo and Island of Hawaii Officers Chosen. The Hilo Board of Trade has rounded out a year's successful work, and on last Friday night after listening to the reports of the President E. N. Holmes, Secretary H. Vicars and Treasurer C. A Stobie, the officers for the ensuing vear were chosen. The work of the officers for the past year hns been so efficient and satisfactory, that they were unanimously re elected, without any apparent op position. A change in the by-laws was made by the adoption of an amend ment offered by Dr. J.' Holland, the object of which was to dispense with a corresponding secretary, the duties of which office had been per formed heretofore by Secretary Vicars. The two offices will here after be combined, and in order to supply the deficiency on the Execu tive Council, an additional member was provided, making that body consist of eight members together with the officers of the Board of Trade. President Holmes presented a written report reviewing the year's work of the Board and Executive Council, which was closely followed by the members and warmly ap plauded at the close of its reading. His report is as follows: Gentlemen: This association was organized in March 1904 for the purpose of promoting the gene ral welfare of Hilo and of the ad jacent district. This was to be done bv discussing the questions of public improvements, and by putting forth before the authorities and agitating in a persistent and intelligent manner our needs and requirements. Opportunities for discussion have been taken advantage of by the members at the ten meetings held since organization with good effect, and the Executive Council whose duty it is to carry out the wishes of the main body and to deal with matteis arising between the re gular meetings of the Board, have been assiduous in their duties. The Council hns held, since the organi zation, thirty-one meetings, and perhaps a majority of the members have not missed a meeting. While members will no doubt admit that considerable benefit has been derived from the work of the Board, I will refer to some of the matters that have been taken up. One of the first matters taken up was renewing the woodwork of the bridge at Riverside. This bridge was in a most dilapidated condition and was scarcely safe for pedestrians. After some correspondence with the Superintendent of Public Works, he gave instructions for renovating the bridge, and later got a deed from the owner, so that now the bridge is owned by the Government and is kept in repair by the local road board. Need was felt for a map showing the Government lands in the town and the terms of years for which they were under le.tse, so that the public might have access to it. The survey department was pre vailed upon to supply such a map which is to be found in the Board of Trade Rooms. One of the most vital questions to the prosperity of the town of Hilo was providing for means whereby the sanitary conditions of the place could be strictly attended to. The Government had reduced the salaries of their medical men to such a figure that none but a wealthy philanthropist could con sider the proposition. As the care of prisoners, the indigent sick and the keeping of the port in a sanitary condition was an essential matter, a sub-committee of the Board of Tradi; was appointed to raise the necessary means for paying n rens- ouable salary to a physician and satntary inspector. Arrangements were made whereby a tax on im ports is levied and the proceeds go towards maintaining the town in a clean mid healthy condition. Some inertia having been dis played by the Public Works De partment in the matter of expend ing the appropriation of $16,000 for a new jail, and also the appropria tion of $10,000 on the sewerage system for Hilo, the Executive Council made a vigorous appeal for immediate action. A good deal of correspondence ensued on the mat ter, lectures on engineering were delivered, diversity of opinions were expressed in almost forcible lan guage, wireless, messages were ex changed, until finally the Board and the Department came to an un derstanding, and the sewer work for Hilo was- started. Instructions have also been given for condemna tion proceedings to acquire the land selected by the Council as a suita ble site for a new jail. The approach to the new Wai lukti bridge remained impassable for some time, and perhaps we would not now have such a good thoroughfare at this point had it not been for the forcing ot the mat ter first by an individual member undertaking to do some of the work gratis and later by the Board request ing the Sheriff to put prisoners on the job. The Council's fruitful action on Mooheau Park and pavilion is of too recent date to require more than mention. To show the Board's ap preciation of Admiral Beckley's gift an engrossed address was or dered and paid for out of the Board's funds. There still remains a debt on this pavilion account amounting to$i36o,77; this amount was raised by the Executive Council, as in structed by the Board, in order to settle with the contractor. It is expected that the next Legislature will appropriate a sufficient sum to repay this amount and further im prove the park. Arrangements have been made whereby seven acres of laud at Rainbow Falls will be turned over to the public for park purposes. A Park Committee nominated by the Board has been appointed by theStiperintendentof Public Works; thiscommitteepractically has charge of the care and improvement of our parks. Some mouths ago when the comity act commission were delibe rating in Honolulu, a committee of the Board prepared an exhaustive report on the subject, and submitted it to the commissioners. The Council deeming this a valuable compilation of statistics and other information, ordered the same printed in pamph let form for future use. What appeared to be an irregular and unjust transaction in the laud department of the government was investigated by the executive coun cil. I refer to the Eugene II. Iv man land deal. This matter has been so well investigated by the de partment that a recurrence is not likely under the present administra tion. The assistant agent of the U. S. experiment station called upon the Board for financial assistance in the matter of tilling land near Hilo for the experimenting in raising ba nanas and other products; the as sistance was rendered. Believing that hardships were about tobe imposed on homesteaders by the attitude taken by the gov ernment regarding the homestead laud laws the executive council took the matter up with homesteaders, and as a result of their investiga tions have prepared and submitted to the Governor of the Territory a lengthy report of their findings, with recommendations. When the Acting Governor was I pieparing his annual report are- quest was made of the Hoard of Trade for particulars of the Federal needs of this island. A detailed statement of our requirements was submitted; this statement has been read here and published in the news papers, and no doubt has been read by the several members of the Board. The proposed extension of Bridge street is a matter that is now re ceiving the attention of the Board, and it is thought that this work will be proceeded with in the near future. I believe I have mentioned the more important transactions of the Board of Trade and I trust the re sult of our labors will prompt all members to continue to give to out organization the support it has re ceived in the past and thereby assist in the advancement of the town and adjacent district the aim of the or ganization. Yours respectfully, E. N. Holmks, President. Treasurer C. A. Stobie made a report of the financial standing of the Board, which was as follows; URCUII'TS Membership fees mill dues $ 554-75 Donation of Admiral Iteckley.... 1,000.00 Loan, First Hank of Hilo 1,360,77 $i.9'5-5 UXPKNIJITURUS. Mooheau Hnll $2,360.77 Kent, postage, incidentals 393-44 Itqlance cosh on hand 161.31 .9'5'53 President Holmes then announced the election of officers for the next year. Upon motion of J. W. Mason, Mr. Holmes the present in cumbent was unanimously elected President, over the protest of that individual, who expressed his de sire to see some other man enjoy the honor. He said he was willing to serve for another term, if it were the will of the majority of the Board of Trade, but he did not seek the honor and would prefer to retire. By unanimous vote, the secretary was instructed to cast the ballot for Mr. Holmes as president, which he did. Each of the old officers in turn were unanimously re-elected, and the Board proceeded to select an Executive Council of eight mem bers in addition to the officers named. After numerous nomina tions and a ballot taken, the result showed the tally to be, Dr. Hayes, 40; Adam Lindsay, 37; J. A.Scott, 37; C. E. Wright, 36; F. Brughelli, 32; A. Humburg, 31; E. E. Richards, 30; I. Turner, 25; L. A. Andrews, 23; Chas. Furneaux, 13; E. H. Austin, 10; W. H. Lambert, 8; J. Vierra, 4, and scattering 7. The Board of Trade officers for the ensuing year are therefore as follows: President, E. N. Holmes. First Vice President, J. W. Mason. Second Vice President, Dr. T. Holland. Treasurer, C. A. Stobie. Secretary, H. Vicars. Executive Council Dr. H. Hayes, Adam Lindsay, J. A. Scott, C. E. Wright, F. Brughelli, A. Humburg, E. E. Richards, L. Turner. Chairman Richards of the Park Board said he would like to have suggestions trom tnc uoaru in re gard to providing curtains or glass windows for the protection of the floor.of Mooheau Hall from rain and hc elements. It was stated that the cost of canvass curtains would be about $200 and glass win dows $700. Dr. Holland, who is also a member of the Park Board spoke at lsngth on the necessity of providing shelter against storms, and gave his opinion that curtains were the least expensive and would last eight or nine years. I,. Turner favored glass windows, which would be of a permanent character. The matter was finally referred to the Park Board for whatever action they deemed proper, J. A. Scott expressing the general opinion of the meeting that whatever addi tional money was spent, ought to be expended in beautifying the Park with shrubbery, trees and grass, which was sadly needed at the present time. F. Brughelli said he believed it would be proper for the Board of Trade to give an expression of) opinion regarding the reduction of grade at Honolii hill 011 the Haka lau road, between Pepeekeo and Papaikou, which at present caused a needless expense of energy by hauling teams in overcoming the steep incline at this point. Mr. Scott approved of the proposition and also suggested that the new concrete nrches being put in nlong the government road should here after be forty feet or the width of the road, instead of twenty feet wide, which barely permitted teams to pass each other. Both recom mendations will be forwarded to the Superintendent of Public Works, at Honolulu. TIIK ItUSSIAN IIOIIUIM'OIHIK. Slnmgo .Mixture of Hares and ToiiRiirs Which l'ucos Japan. The world has never perhaps be held such a combination of incon gruous elements as the Russian empire presents today. The edu cated classes include some of the best informed and of the most high ly polished men and women 111 Europe, many of whom openly ex press ideas of an advanced liberal type. They include also an in tellectual proletariat which has em braced, with all the ardor of the Slav nature, the wildest and most dangerous theories of French and German socialists. These men have the tastes and the ambitions which education brings, with no reason able prospect of gratifying either. Beneath is the dumb peasant order permeated here and there with the new ideas-which the villagers who have migrated to the newly esta blished manufactuing center or who have come into contact with the army bring home with them. Over all, Uie bureaucracy and the police exercise what is too often in prac tice an irresponsible sway. The church in her own sphere is as in tolerant and as unenlightened as the state. Most omnious of all, the economic conditions of nobles, of manufacturers and artisans and of the agricultural masses appear to be becoming more and more grevious. I lie most eniignteneci men of the empire deplore the evils they daily witness and recognize that profound constitutional reforms are indispensable to remedy them. Yet they are acutely conscious of the dangers which such reforms must almost necessarily bring, and they have so far failed to devise any known project which promises to effect the transition from the half oriental, half medieval state which Russia now is to conditions es sential for the development of modern life and civilization. AUTOIiKAl'll CALHMIAK. An Appropriate and LMciisinjr New Vcur's (Jltt. Certainly there is no gift which is warranted to keep new all the year in the same way that the hand inscribed calendar is. To make this calendar it is first essential that 365 slips of paper be cut of a uni form size three inches wide by four inches long is a fair measure ment and then, after having an inked line drawn across ope inch from the top edge, they are ready to inscribe. The space above the .line is re served for the date, which may be added last, just before the slips are mounted into a block and cemented at both sides, so that the owner may not anticipate the contents of the various leaves. The leaves are sent about to the various friends of the one for whom the calendar is intended, and each is invited to inscribe a leaf with an appropriate sentiment, either origi al or quoted, but in' the person's own handwritting. As may be seen, there are daily surprises all during the year for the recipient. Tlio Only Cough Medicine l'reo From l'olsou.
