The Hilo public and other citizens on the Island of Hawaii have no complaint to make on account of delays of Christ mas mail. Besides the regular packet mail received by the Kiuait on Wednes day, the Kauai brought seven bags of local mail on Saturday and the Claudine wns promptly dispatched from Honolulu oil n special trip with 48 bags of Xmns mail for Hilo nnd vicinity arriving by the Manchuria- Otherwise many Xmas packages would have been held in Hono lulu until today and not gotten to their destination until tomorrow evening. Shot n Mule. Hrughelli took his mules and hied himself to the tall woods when he heard of the proposed visit of Governor Carter to Hilo. Citizen Drughclli's former experience with the Governor was enough to inspire lack of confidence and he sought safety for his live stock from the reckless markmaitship of the Governor. As it happened the Volcano Stables became the sufferer, and within twenty four hours after the arrival of the U. S. S. Chicago, oue of their draft mules was the victim of the wanton sport of some of the Jackics of the warship. While being led behind a wagon along the water front, two shots were fired at thf animal from a crowd of intoxicated sailors ofT the Chicago who had been granted shore leave. One bullet struck the skull near the eye and glanced off, while the other penetrated the fleshy part of the thigh. The animal fell and as a result of the fall suffered a fractured hip bone. The mule is now in the horse hospital connected with the Volcano Stables and under the careful treatment of Dr. H. II. Elliott will recover. The culprits who perpetrated the deed were arrested by the police, hut later turned over to the ship's officers. They were placed in solitary confinement on bread and water in accordance with the usual custom. i A XMAS BOX I No more appropriate gift for the Christinas holi days could be imagined than a selected box of fine table wines and whiskeys.

The vessel is the flagship of Admiral Goodrich, who is in charge of the Pacific Squadron. Governor Carter and Captain W. II. Lyons, naval com mandant nt Honolulu, were guests of the Admiral. Admiral Goodrich, Mrs. Good rich and daughter, Mrs. Lyons, Governor Carter and other officers from the Chicago made up an excursian party to the Vol cano, Owing to the necessity of readjust ing the ship's coaipnss, which took the vessel outside, little opportunity was given the general public to visit the man of war.

Governor Carter's visit to JIi,o accom plished its purpose, nud nil opposition to the Carter program wns immediately "Rooscvcltcd". The Governor hurdled the barriers placed in the way by Secre tary "Jnck" committing the government to reserve Hlock C for federal purposes, nud has declared that the prospects for n government building for Hilo nrc so remote, that n new population will have sprung up, whose desires for fedcrnl im provements inny not be so strong ns our present voters. Met nt the fish landing on Waiakca river by n Committee consisting of John Molr, the Governor was escorted with as little demonstration as it is possible to conceive to the lattcr's residence nt Olio men plantation, In which the executive holds 11 large interest. He came nud went unheralded, nud few citizens were nwarc of the executive presence in our midst. However, he summoned the lenders of the Masonic Hall Association nud tnndc known to them his decision after careful considera tion, to accept the ofTer of exchange of the Masonic lot for n portion of Lot C. The Masons ask for lot having a frontage of seventy five fret on Waianucuuc street and one hundred feet on Hridge street, at a valuation fixed by the Governor of ninety cents per square foot. This means that the lot is valued at 6,750. In exchange for this lot, the Masonic Hall Association propose to give title to two lots on upper Waianucuuc street. These are the Hitchcock and Masonic lots valued respectively at ft, 300 and $5,000. The balance will have to be paid in cash. The Association agree to put up a substantial Mason Hall on the new ly acquired land at a cost of not less than $15,000 within eighteen months from July first next. The arrangements were eminently satisfactory to the Governor, nud alter securing the agreement from the Masons in writing, he gave instructions to F.u gineer Gere to advertise for the removal of the Riverside School to the new school lots. It is hoped the school building can be removed during the holidays and not disturb the daily attendance of pupils. As soon as the specifications are drawn up for the high school, contracts will be let for the construction of that building on the Riverside lot. A Christians Souwulr.

By the unanimous choice of the Hilo Board of Trade and the Hilo Chamber of Commerce, A. B. Locbeustcin was select ed last Saturday as the representative from the Big Island to join the delegation who arc to go on to Washington in the interest of securing favorable action by Congress upon the President's rccom mendation to restore the federal revenue to the Territory. This action was taken at the joint re quest of the Honolulu Chamber of Com merce and Merchauts' Association, who propose sending five men from Honolulu and who asked that each of the other islands be represented on the lobby. The names chosen in Honolulu are W. O. Smith, Mark P. Robinson, E. A. Mc Inerny, J. R. Gait, Geo. W. Smith. It is understood that Maul will be repres ented by David C. Lindsay, former man ager of Paia plantation, but now on the mainland, preparing himself for the banking business in which he expects to engage in Wailuku. No word has been received from Kauai, but it is expected similar uction will be taken by the busi ness interests of that island, so that the delegation will be strictly n representa tive body. The visit of the delegates will not be confined solely to the special mission on which they are sent, but it is expected that while in Washington, they will press other matters of needed legislation affect ing Hawaii. It Is suited that one of the most important matters of legislation which will be pushed by Mr. Loebeusteiu, in conjunction with the other gentlemen, is the necessary appropriations for a breakwater, light houses nud other public improvements.
