Mahsk Huslncss Manager. hows to nusiSfcss Active Preparation lu Process for "Santiago" Production. Front street lias been laid out nnd its lines established by the Board of Public Works, not care lessly nnd whimsically, but with full knowledge nnd due considera tion. The street is located with an even curve and wide sweep. The Public Works department has not stopped at locating this street, but has taken some of the steps required toward its full establishment, having communicated with the property owners whose property would be required for the purpose. The re medy for Front street conditions is to finish up the work so well begun. If proceedings have discontinued at this point, und if the lines of the street need attention, as it is pre sumed, the next step should be im mediately taken, viz., the appoint ment of a commission to assess damages. The Board of Public Works would doubtless proceed forthwith, should a request be made b the people of Hilo through the ilonrd of Supervisors or otherwise. To do this should require little more time than would the re-location of the mauka line of the street where it will always be objectionable. The present and future importance of this our principle bay-front thor oughfare, no one will deny. It is laid out eighty feet' in width from Waiakea to the Wailuku, and opened through, except for the few blocks covered with small buildings, put up as cheaply as possible in anticipation of this street widening. The sooner the street is opened fully, the sooner will improvements along the street be possible. Put ting a kink in the street line to make the street approach a few shacks will not hasten the day of improvement along this thorough fare nor better conditions in that locality. "Well begun is half done," proverbially, and. a bun gling modification ot this street plan would seem inadvisable when the work could be as well finished in completion and perfection. The Committee on Arrangements hav ing In charge the production of the war play "Santiago" at Hilo Armory on the night of July 4th, are losing no time in getting down to business. Sub-corn- 'tnltlees have been appointed from mem bers of Company D. and the Elks, to look after the details of the performance and already nearly the entire cast has been selected. The principal roles will be undertaken by the Elks Dramatic Club, while the soldiery and minor parts necessary to the sucessful produc tion of the play will be In the hands of the officers and members of the military company. In the battle scenes it is expected that the entire company will be upon the stage, and in order to accommodate so large n number of performers, it is pro posed to erect n mammoth stage at ttie tnalcai end of the Armory Hall. This will leave the seating capacity in the main nuditorlnm about 500, and the floor will be arranged upon an incline so that every seat in the house will enable the occupier to have an unobstructed view of the stage. The platform to be used os a stage will be erected without delay under the supervision of E. E. Richards and the Stage Committee, and, thereafter, the scenes will be built up by J. M. Herlng to suit the conditions. The absence of a permanent stage in the Hilo Armory has been a matter of much regret by the military boys, and out of the proceeds realized from the production of "Sanli ago", it is probable Company D. will de vote the greater portion to the construct ion of n permanent Improvement of this nature. The sub-committees appointed to look after the details of the perfprmancc, are as follows: COMMITTEES. ltEN'1'8 HOT? Altefiff). Important Decision of Jndgo.L'Hrxonn In Kolnhardt Estate.

The contestants, who are the widow and a number of the Rein- hardt children, protested against the allowance of the administrator's accounts, urging that all the rents collected by him after the death of Julius Rcinhnrdt, are portion of the realty, title to which vested in the heirs immediately upon Reinhardt's death, The Court says; "This latter An article oti'the cultivation of the citrus fruits in the Islands, is sued in the bulletin of the agricul tural experiment station, printed in this issue calls our attention to the lamentable fact that these fruits ara being shipped here from Cali fornia. It should be the folly of carrying coal to Newcastle to bring these fruits to Hawaii, and that such is not the case is due to our own people. We are sending out $60,000 a year of our good money to California that should stay at home. Many localities in the Is lands will grow oranges, unexcelled for quality. As good an orange as California ever saw was picked from a tree growing upon the Alex ander Young place. The gulches along the north coast produce oranges, that are world-beaters. Orange growing should be taken hold of on a commercial scale, the best seedless varieties should be planted, and taken care of, and this done, it is safe to say the Cali fornia orange would find no sale in any Island market . as long as the Island grown orange held out. And at the prices to be realized, what offers better returns? We should at least supply our own markets. finance: K. E. Richards and Capt. W. A. Petler, stagu: E. E. Richards, Chairman. S.

Rainbow Faixs park is likely to have some money to spend on her adornment as the result of Mr. Scott's generosity as well as that of others who have subscribed for the purpose. The most effective use to which money could be put would be toward preserving the natural wild character of the immediate surroundings so far as possible. The art of man can not improve upon the work of nature, and an attempt to do so would be a failure. Protection to and preservation of natural charm should not be lost sigjit of in any plan of improvement of this park enclosing these falls, that are fully as beautiful as many others made famous and given n fictitious charm, often, by stoty or poem. Tenuis Club Meeting. At the annual meeting of the Hilo Ten nis Club held Monday evening, officers were elected as follows : E. D. Baldwin, president; J. W. Marsh, secretary and treasurer; II. Vicars, captain; Dr. II. Hayes and Mr. II. V. Patten, members of the executive committee. Mr. E. E. Pat ten and Dr. II. Hayes were elected to membership. Considerable interest is being taken in the affairs of the club by its numbers to whom the game furnishes enjoyment and healthful exercise. The court treated to n coating of crude oil and sand is progressing satisfactorily, and will soon be ready for a finishing with carbonatt of lime and boiled oil.

Engineer Tom Cook was circulating a petition during the past week asking for the opening of Richardson street between Volcano and Pitman, which seemed to receive the signatures of all without dis sent. It has been forwarded to the Supe rintendent of Public Works.

Such rents become the property of the heirs, and, under ordinary circum stances should, not have been col lected by the administrator in his official capacity. In the present instance, however, the rents seem to have been so collected under di rect authority of the widow and heirs, who have accepted partial distribution of the amount thus col lected, apparently sharing with the administrator, until January nth, 1906, the belief that in making such collections and including statements of them in his official reports he was acting wholly within the scope of his authority. It would be un conscionable under the circum stances to order these items stricken from the administrator's accounts and to refuse to allow commissions thereoii after the amounts thus col lected have been expended for the benefit of the estate and after the heirs and widow have accepted a distribution of the surplus." The Court declares the widow and heirs are estopped from deny ing, under the circumstances, the administrator's acts in assuming charge of the realty. The same reasoning applies to the payment of taxes upon the realty and recording leases of same. Commissions of Eugene H. Lyman for the collec tion of rents are regarded as "double commissions," and disal lowed. Since the administrator's disbursements for attorneys' fees are contested by the widow and heirs, the fees to Ridgeway & Ridg way are disallowed. All other dis bursements and regular commis sions claimed by the administrator are allowed, and costs of the various proceedings, which have taken place are taxed against the various parties instituting the same. Clerk Gurney is appointed commissioner to make the necessary computa tions in accordance with the decision. IRjs had a good sale. The fruit is not overdone in size and underdone in quality like the dropsical west ern varieties; .it rather resembles in size, rich color and delicate flavor the New Jersey peach, which is a favorite kind in the Eastern market. "It used to be said nnd insisted on before the small farm movement forced respect, that peaches could not be grown here. The writer of this topic knew better, for he had himself grown some in a casual way nnd had come to realize how well peaches might thrive here if given n fair chance. What they needed was more care than is given to a casual shade tree in a yard It is astonishing how often snap- judgment has been taken against latent fruit industries here by the experience of a man with one tree growing on a lawn-. Many a peach tree which would have yielded well if given sunshine, fertilizer, irriga tion and shelter from trades and konas, has struggled into a decline when put among other trees on a grassplot and by such decline h'as condemned an industry that might have made money for farmers. "If a man should set apart ten acres 01 sanay or gravelly sou 111 a sheltered valley at a low elevation, a place where water is handy, it would be his fault if he did not have peaches ready for the coast market a mouth before the coast it self could raise a crop. But he would have to be a man who knew how. He should plant his trees in rows, as is done in California, and cultivate them so often that weeds or grass would have no chance to exhaust the soil. Where that has been done in and about Honolulu, on a small scale, the result is most satisfactory. Why should it not be so in other localities of Oahu on a large scale?" LEGAL NOTICES.
