(Jovcriior (,'nrlor Holmes to l'ujr for Shooting Aiilnuil. 19. 9S' It 18 n far cry from ditions in Hawaii to prophecy the disintegration ntul subdivision of the huge sugar plniitntions into small holding!!. Jared Smith sees the downfall of the plantation inter ests and the substitution of the small farmer, as occurred in the South immediately after the Civil War. The conditions of the South were far different than prevails to day in the Hawaiian Islands. Cot ton growing before the war was not carried on in as scientific and inten sive 11 manner as the methods pur sued by the large sugar planters. The specialized small farmer may be reasonably successful, but with out a radical amendment to the land laws and special inducements offered to settlers, Hawaii cannot expect to become an agricultural community populated with Ameri can farmers. Hilo, Hawaii, Jnu Hun. O 11. Outer, Dcnr Sir: About one ycr ngn while 1111 your lonr of Inspection of the Islands, on the ro.iil between the Volcano mid l'nnlii, you mill your Secretary entne across one of my tunics Unit ml been In jured thnt tiny ntul between you nml your " I Secretary killed hlin. Now the l.cgisla. present con- turc la nbout to meet, wold it not be proper to nil in you bill for incidentals f 17.S.00 to p.iy for the tunic? Yours truly, (Sailed) 1'. BRUGI1ELLI. Ip as suggested by United States Commissioner of Immigration Sargent, Italian immigrants are available for plantation laborers in large numbers, this may solve the labor problem in Hawaii. The question arises whether the dagoes are any more desirable than the recent importation of Porto Ricans. In Southern California, the Italians are of a domestic and agricultural turn of mind, and have built up an Italian-Swiss colony whose reputa tion for fine wines and grapes is becoming world renowned. Tin? Board of Trade are adopting the proper course in the matter of federal legislation, and instead of seeking too much- without success, are bending every effort to secure the passage of the ten thousand dollar appropriation for a survey and estimate of cost of the Hilo .breakwater. This is a, step in the right direction and with a favor able report of the project, means a far stride toward securing the million dollar appropriation for the much needed public improvement. Instrad of attempting to dis credit the Territory's representative in Congress, the citizens of Hawaii who have the best interests of the country at hesrt, would appear in a better light at home giving such co operation as lies within their own sphere of influence, through the proper channels. The Delegate's protest is timely and to the point, and should appeal to every business man interested ifi the success of the Territory. Thu Tribune throws" up the sponge oi) the proposition of small farming on Hawaii, but the News certainly has no intention at pres ent of abandoning the fight on Maui. True, ideal New England, down-south or western farm homes may not be established on Maui, but for all that, there arc many minor industries yet to be estab lished including pineapples, sisal, rubber and other semi-tropic pro ductions, and there is laud on Maui for that purpose. Maui News. January 33, 1905, P. ItrilKliclll, IJsri., City Stables, Hilo, Hawaii, Sir: Your letter of January 19th is nt hand. 1 do not know what nationality you are, mid I cannot understand your letter. You must cither be a fool or a knave the former if you think I am going to recommend payment of $175,00 for any animal in the condition in which your driver left that mule when Secretary Atkinson and I found it. The only other possible excuse for your request is that you must be a knave to expect the Government, or anyone else, to pay you. If you knew of thnt accident by tele phone ns soon ns your driver urrived in Knu, and failed to notify hint to at once disp itch n until to examine the nninml and see if it was necessary to kill it, you deserve to be prosecuted for cruelty to animals. Your driver claimed he did not know your name, and 1 could not find out to whom that mule belonged. He gave us to understand that he would be held per sonally responsible by "his boss" if he killed the mule, and claimed that he was waiting for instructions as to what to do. On his return to Hilo he expected to lead the animal back, in order to prove to his heartless, cruel employer the condition of the animal, and I presume you will deny any such instructions and claim thnt the Ignorant Japanese driver had told you that the accident was only slight, and between the two of you escape the consequences of the law. In all my experience in these Islands, I have never seen a case of greater cruelty to animals, the moral responsibility for which you cannot escape, in that you employ a driver whom you evidently could not trust and who would commit such an outrage. How lout; the poor brute had been there, exposed by day to the hot tropical sun and by night to the cold fogs from off the mountains, which are sure to creep down in that locality, with its hind leg broken and the bone protruding, I do not know. But when we found it, the broken leg was swollen to three or four times the natural size, the wound taken possession of by the flics, the leg twisted clear under its body, and in its agony the animal had unfortu nately put its fore leg over the halter rope, so that in order to stand on three legs its head had to be down near the ground, or if it raised its head it had to stand on two legs. Its death was only n question of hours, and to remove it would have been impossible. To my mind, it is most unfortunate the law provides no way, under the circum stances, to penalize both you and your driver. If such an incident had occurred in the town of Hilo, I am sure the hu manity and public spirit of your fcllow- towusuieii would have raised a storm of indignation, and public opinion would have held you responsible. Respectfully yours, (Signed) G. It. CARTER, ' Governor. Hilo, Hawaii, Jan. 26, 1905. Mr. G. R. Carter, Honolulu, My dear Governor: Yours of Jan. 33rd at hand, contents noted. You do nut know my Rationality. I suppose you wish to know it. I am American by joice not by compulsion, uatif of 'Switzerland Sory you cannot understand my letter If so, wy do you answer? As to being a fool or knave, I say not guilty- I expect every one to pay their bills even if the bill is iucured for simpaty of mules. The first iuforuiclion I ad of any pillkin was from Arioli at night saing thnt tlie Governor killed one of my mules. So I again say not guilty to be prosecuted for cruelty to animals, My driver is stil in my employ and he law to punish me and my driver, wicli Indicates to tuc more humanity for the mule than the men in the tropical sun nud fogs from the mountains. Now, my Dear Governor, I do not be lieve this little note wil please 5 on any mute than my Inst, but I remember sonny time during the ycr to hnvc rend in the newspaper that the Governor would dis charge the Government cuplolcs that did not pay thnir bills. I can suply 11 lot in Hilo nud Honolulu that disobeys your order nud I would be very sory to include your own. The Advertiser the 22 con tains 11 sad tale ol it mule. I did not swing thnt talc in the press, but I have no objection if it is agreeable to yon thnt my first note, this one and your mis. tuny go in it, errors and nil. In conclusion I say that mule was tied and not abandoned all the locality ncom ndatlon can suply. If the accident ml been in Hilo or Honolulu, ns you say, my Fellow Townsmen would not found me dilatory in attending to my duty and Public opinion would have noting to complain. Wy to-day one of my beasc in going to pasture got itr the government swamp, it required n dozen men and a lentil to get him out and no one made any complaint. We are having accidents at all times, not myielf alone but others also, and I certainly believe thnt it is out of wince for the Governor to tnke part in our misfortune unless he is willing to pay for is mistakes. The Hill is still $175. Yours truly, (Signed) P. BRUGIIELI.I. LEGAL NOTICES. In the Circuit Court of the l'ourtli Circuit, Territory of Hawaii. ' AT ClIAMtlltRR IN I'KOIIATIt.

The Wireless Telegraph Com pany during the past year has trans mitled messages aggregating a little over 100,000 words. Of these mes sages, the government messages aggregated about 20,000 words. The planters' messages aggregated about 23,000 words, and the mes sages ot the general public aggre gated about 55,000 words. This is the biggest year's work the company has ever done. Aside from betterments and the govern ment subsidy the expenses of the company exceeded the income from operation by about $500 a month. rue minimum charge tor a mes sage of ten words has been a dollar The feature of the operation of the system during the past year which has attracted the attention of the management has been the extent to which the general public has used the system.
