GOOD ROADS NEEDED IN KONA.
Chairman Armstrong's Report of the District Criticized. JOKht Kind of Settlers Are Ditticu.lt to I'ind More Industrie Needed to Sustain Sew Arrivals Mk. Kditor: The Kona district as seen by Mr. Armstrong certainly ex hibits some phases hitherto unknown to the residents, and we are at loss to find who can have informed that gentlemen on these subjects. The number of donkey "religions," I im agined were confined to a few, but that does not surprise one, as they are to be met with in most places. But goats of late years are seldom seen, except a few near Kailua. It. would be interesting to know the name of the capital fallow who has been looking for a home in the radius of five or six miles for twelve months without ob- TTa. oortainlv in II ot made of the stuff pioneers ought to be, t v much for either his energy or his enterprise; and to say the least has wasted precious timea whole year. I should recommend that capital fellow to start off as soon as he can tear himself away from Sleepy Hollow and take a position his misfing it. . During the last few months we have had persons of different nationalities riding through the district, but taking little or no pains to obtain accurate information as to the lay of the lands, their names, or even that of the own ersand judging from hearsay bring I iff to nf the, needful with them ..c,f!nrr tn fh trood nature 01 strangers for the wherewithal to re m t-. man QTid lioiist Anv busi- iresu uuiu uju cuv ;i i -n ttmi that, if mnoasi" nea'S liiau win tv" j , . i 1 n , In taa aimnlfl. ft fine Die lO UUtitlu iauu xa cw fi o lease is of permanent importance, and 1 . iv.molofnr ft.

A combination of the kinetoscope with the phonograph, upon tne per fection of which Thomas A. Edison onH hie noaistant. William K. Ii. Dickson, have been working for sev eral years, has been made practical and will be offered to the public with- in a short time in tne snape or an in strument which will show action and give phonetic expression synenron Tha nnmhi nation, while new to the public, has been working in the Edi son laboratory for some time. While perfecting the kinetoscope, experi ments were carried on looniug w vuv . J 1 X 1 harnessing of pnonograpny wnn me machine, and a plan was finally found by which it was accomplished. The new apparatus is almost the same in appearance as the kineto scope. The addition consists of the rubber tubes and ear pieces of the phonograph, which are attached to the top of the kinetoscope. The syn ehronal action of the two instruments is attained by a simple device in the interior of the box, connection being made by a belt from the drum of one to the drum of the other. With the offering of the new inven tion a change will be made in the character of the objects and scenes photographed by the kinetoscopo grapb. While the kinetoscope was only optical, the desire was to get scenes in which there was a vari ety of action, sound, of course, being disregarded- Therefore, such subjects as prize-fights, dancing and scenes of violent action were in demand. With the new combination, however, the eye and ear both being enlisted, the range of subjects will be largely in creased, and many things that could not be portrayed effectively will now become available. It will now be possible to reproduce an entire opera, with all the motion and music, by the use of a number of instruments working in succession. The new field opened is, in fact, prac tically inexhaustible. Does Advertising Fay? The value of newspaper advertis ing is difficult to estimate and is often problematical, but it was demonstrated recently in Judge Coffey's court in a remarkable manner, eays the S. F. Examiner. Property belonging to the Johnson estate was recently sold. Mr. Fred H. Deakin. attorney for the infant heirs, was not satisfied with the result of the sale, and having ob tained permission from the Court to secure a better bid if he could, adopted the usual course of adver tising for higher bids. His adver tisement in the Examiner cost him $52 50. At the appointed time Didders assembled in Judge Coffey's court and raised the price of one piece of property $12,500. Three other pieces of property re ceived increased bids of 10 per cent. Judge Coffey intimated that this was an occasion when adver tising paid so well that they could keep it up for another week. It always bothers a Frenchman, who is learning English to read one day that a murder has been committed, and the next day that the murderer has been committed.
