LiKft women, newspapers make mistakes for which tliete is no ac counting some times. Tiikkk is no fathoming some mens' minds, even by a newspaper reporter, who is supposed to know it nil. ' TiiK lepers of Molokat will have more company, if legislative com mittees continue to pay visits to the settlement. In THH retort courteous of the Hoard of Trade, the Governor ap pears to have been confronted with another nrughelli. Somkiiodv has said that a sign board at Rainbow Falls would be used only as a hitching post. - Why not have a hitching post? With teference to himself, Pro fessor Ossler apparently does not believe his theory applies. He is fifty-one and has tiot been chloro formed yet. Whkn the Kmperor's country men trifle with the affections of Japanese women in this country, they run up against the strong right arm of Uncle Sam. IIn.o's "pork" did not get into the "bar'l." but for no fault of Delegate Kuhio, who got all the rations coming to him during a short session of Congress. Drckntkamzatiox does not mean the enactment of local self government in which the counties must ask the legislature for money to pay for their support. SUPHRINTHNDKNT ATKINSON, like General Kuropatkiu objects to withdrawing "under fire," but did so, reports of the diplomatic bureau to the contrary notwithsanding. Whkn traffic is resumed on FrqnJ street after the completion of the sewerage system, that street will no longer resemble a New York thoroughfare in excavation times. Ik thh County Bill fails of pas sage, the suppressed fury of the people may jise iu such an outburst of righteous indignation, that it can be compared only to a volcanic eruption. Instkad of doubling up on gov ernment vouchers, the Department of Public Instruction might have utilized their efforts to better public advantage by increasing school teachers' salaries. Tiikkk is a faint suggestion of a desire "to even up" by the appoint ment of Cadet Lyman to West Point over a Honolulu young man. The Delegate has not forgotten that he was over-ridden iu the ap pointneut of a postmaster at Hilo. Pkksiuknt Rooskvki.t is given credit for saying: "No amount of intelligence and no amount of en ergy will save a nation which is not honest, and no government can ever be a permanent success il ad ministered iu accordance with base ideals."

Vicars rend the minute of the Inst meeting, which were approved. President Holmes from the li.vecullvo Council reported thnt they hint ileclilcd to lay nil matters of correspondence which h.ul received consideration before the miilu body. The Secretary then proceeded to rend n voluminous tunssof correspondence, the most iutcrtcstiiiK of which wns n number of Utters which linil been exchanged be tween Governor Curler mill the llonrd of Trade over the public lands question. In October Inst, the lloaid of Trade through 11 sub-committee undertook the Investi gation of the alleged violation ofthe resi dence clause 111 the public laud laws. The Governor was nskfd to suspend any action looking to the ejectment ot home steaders pending the Investigation. He at firt objected but later acquiesced in the submission to the homesteaders of n set of question regarding the conditio! s of settlement, residence, etc. Prom the mass of answers received to these quel tions the Hoard of Trade formulated an exhaustive report on the subject' sug. geMlng a more lenient attitude toward to the homesteaders on the pirt of the ailmiuistratioii,tiiistead of driving settlers oiTthe land by n too strict enforcement of the law. In responding to this report the Governor, called for the replies of the various homesteaders to the various questions submitted by the lloird of Trade, but that body respectfully declin ed, alleging that these nnswers were oh tallied on the gimrnnlee that they would be treated as confidential. The Governor replied on Dec. sSlh that the lloird of Trade report appears to have been made ex parte, and in making the alleged in vestigations the Hoard has been guided by n purtKise, viz "to get nt the ndminis- trntion". Henskcd whether the Hoard was "composed of public spirited citizens, willing to countenance defrauding the government" mid whether the "standards of its members nre so low that they would enter into any such agreement". This cnlled forth n very vigorous anil indig nant reply on the pnrt of the Hoard of Trade dated Jan. 19th, iu which nfttr reviewing the facts and method of inves tigation the Hoard denied the Governor's charges and disclaimed any ulterior mo tive to "get at the administration". It says: "However, we nre of the opinion thnt even the acts of n Governor are open at all times to criticism. Nor docs it Imp pen that your office carries with it the right to insult with the immunity mem bers of the regularly organized commer cial bodies." No response to the last letter of the Hoard of Trade has been re ceived, and ns the fact of the interchange of the very rnccy correspondence bet ween the Kxccutivc and the Hoard hail become well known, it was decided to make the correspondence public- nt the last meeting. The Hnwniiaii Logging Company nil dressed n communication to the Hoard asking its support ofthe lumber business in the islands and the question of discrim ination iu the rates on koa logs practciced by the Matson Navigation Line. It is stated that the Lumber Company began shipment of koa logs over the steamship line to San Fruucisco iu Februnry, 1904. Hight lots of lumber nggregnting 126,800 board feet were carried at the rate off 7. 50 per thousand, which was n rate agree able both to the lumber company nud the carriers. Immediately without the pre vious notice, the rate was raised to f 25 which the writer alleges is an impossible rite. The company have lying nt the docks 60,000 feet of koa logs awaiting shipment, but held up 011 account of the excessive freight charge. The matter was referred to the Committee on Trans portation for investigation nnd report. The extensive report of the Committee on Varied Industries was read tit length nud elicited considerable discussion. The report wns complimented for its value nud thoroughness, and it was sug gested that the same be printed. The funds of the Hoard however will not per mit this being done. The various recoui- I uieiidations were taken ill) seriatuui nud the following committees appointed to investigate the vnrious subjects. Organ ization of fruit ami b.iuatia growers to the Committee on Transportation. L. Turner nddressed n letter to the Hoard suggesting that efforts be made to attract 11 larger attendance at the meet ings ofthe body and to stimulate interest in the many nutters of public concern which might nnd should be discussed by A Colilniiinloillnii, j II11.0, March 22, 1905. Kditou Hu.oTKimT.NK Sut: In your issue of March 21st, you refer to the King Sttect Grade, in connection with an inter view you had with tnc, in which there seems to be sonic misunder standing iu tcgnrd to what I did actually say in the matter; and with an idea of due justice to those men tioned, without going into a dis cussion of street intersection grades, over which there is mutch diversity of opinion, I would state that Mr. Andrews did not arbitrarily change the Grade, as stated, also neither did Mr. Gere or I protest. The facts arc these, owing to the changed conditions on Bridge Street, namely, the widcuing-"bf said street from its old established width of 42 feet, to 60 feet, it made this Street the Larger Thoroughfare, and on the principal that the main streets should carry the right of way, as faic as the intersection grades, arc concerned; I favored lowering the grade on the King Street crossing, also Mr. 'Gere con curred with me in tins; and as .Sheriff Andrews was the only man concerned iu this change, he being the only one who had built a Gov ernment side walk on King Street, both Mr. Gere and I called on Mr. Andrews, and went over the pro posed change with him. Mr. Au dreys said that he preferred to sec the change made as he believed in level street crossings, and said that it would not be mutch of a job to lower his side walk witlt Prison labor, as soon as he obtained among his prisoners some one capable of doing the work. Referring again to the old grade of King Street, this was established at that time according to the best practice used in many citys, of con tinuing un-broken over the inter section, all grades of 3 per cent or less. This change was only proposed and made, as stated above, on the principal of giving the wider street the preferance of grade over the narrower street. As an illustration, if the propersition were turned around, and the mutch wider and longer street, such as Bridge Stwct, ran up and down hill, iu the same direction of King Street, the inter section left as it was, on a 3 per cent crossing, would have served the Public both in convenience and pleasing appearance mutch better than if it was flattened to a level crossing at the intersection. Yours Sincerely, E. D. BALDWIN. The interview referred to, which I appeared in these columns last week, was an attempt at Mr. Bald win's request to vindicate the es tablishment by him of a grade for King street, which was subsequently changed leaving the sidewalks there iu the present unsightly con dition. The interview gave the credit to former Sheriff Andrews for the change in the grade, because of that gentleman's insistancc upon level street crossings. Surveyor Baldwin and Engineer Gere were understood to be of the same opin ion that a three per cent was the only proper grade for street cross ings. It appears now, that Mr. Baldwin has not been properly re ported and that Mr. Gere has'been misquoted, despite two separate talks with Mr. Baldwin on the sub ject. Iu order to do justice to all concerned, Mr. Baldwin has pre pared the above very lucid state ment, which is printed verbatim. Kd. Ordered to Cut Their (JrtcilPA. j Tue cable dispatches from China brings the news that the empress dowager has issued an edict requir ing all of the soldiers in the army to wear European dress and cut oil their queues. Her orders have already been obeyed in the province of Honati. The viceroy ofHonan, who has been so prompt in carrying out these instructions, has n sou be ing educated in the United States, and the youngster had not been si weeks in this country before he cut off his own queue to escape the teasing of his schoplmates. The viceroy was gieatly shocked when he heard the news, because a young man without a queue in China is quite as conspicuous as a young man in the United States would be with one. It was diff- cnlt to reconcile the old gentleman to the situation, but he seems to have obeyed his imperial orders in that respect very promptly. I.i Using Jui, for many years viceroy at Nanking, who recently died of old age, has been succeeded by Chott Fu, recently governor of Shantung province, who is regarded as one ol the most progressive and enterprising officials iu China This illustrates the reform tenden cies of the empress, and is full proof I that she is iu earnest iu her deter mination to modernize China. Chou Fit was one of the group of able and progressive young men who surrounded L,i Hung Chang while he was viceroy of the metropolitan province, He has a large foreign acquaintance, a foreign education, and is a cordjul supporter of tlje missionaries. He was recently en gaged in negotiating the new treaty with Minister Conger.
