ulavlv elected members,
uli'r'od to f.Biin say no. Ami tne reason ior im i'i-t
luivth.' time comes to call the extra session. T':e reason now
ai-ued for calling an extra session is to help Honolulu out of her
t roublos. It' it were really necessary to do so, the News would try
to help the thing along, and behanged to tho expense of it. What
the eitiaMis or IJor.f.iulu nUdly Should do, is to organise and set a
r iMimitt.v to v.oili at once to prepare a charter for the government
uf their municipality. Have it carefully drawn, 'extensively pub
lished and thoroughly discussed and digested by 'the time tin. i the
legislature meetsi'so that when tire legislature does meet, they will
know just whai they waiit in the way of a city charter.
It is -vith less
;s of, surprise than ot yiaj.ir)catioii that Hie fact is
Lhore was' really but little trouble in roadjui-ting
to be noted that there was really
labor condition's on tho Maui sugar plantations. It was nc undue
optimism to predict that 'the transition would cause no partiYular
t rouble. ! And there is no danger that the prico of labor will bo un
duly advanced, in fact the prediction may 'safely' he made that
vhon the novelty -of tho new conditions wear oif, the laborers
themselves, in order to secure work, will within six months begin
to underbid eachother, and thus keep the price of labor within
reasonable bounds. . , .
The puny mid dt generate liaolus, ai;c Haymiajis as well, should
take a lesson from' tho experience of i he robust and rotund
Hawaiian s of fifty years ago, in tho matter of diet. There is en
tirely too much moat and' other carbonaceous foods consumed for
this climate. A fruit and vegetable.' diet,' in which there is an
exuberant opportunity for choice,'' will do more than anything else
to restore to the Islands tho magnificent and virile specimens of
manhood which the early missi jnaries and traders found here.
D High Sheriff Brov.n came over to Maui with a posse of police,
booted, spurred an'd firmed to the teeth, determined to do or die.
The only thing he fou inl for them to do was to rido down' to
Kahului and take, a "swim in (he fresh, crisp waters of Kahului Bay.
We are really glad that the high sheriff came over here, because
he has now seen with his own eyes
and iiaan'that everything is se.rene
tear any trou bio here.' ' '
i, ; '
g The proposed water rates appeal1 ominously high, and have
called forth some 'severe strictures, but the' Nkw'S will wait till the
rates are definitely determined
ments. It is to be hoped, however that tho rates will not be made
so high as to drive, the poorer classes,' who, by the way, comprise
the bulk of the population of Wailuku aiid Kahului, back once more
to the use. of ditch water
Surely, if tho weary, heat burdened and feu vu' stricken people
of Honolulu knew what a cool, refreshing and delighfu) climate the
Wailukunns are reveling in just now, the Claudin'v'., Kinuu and

MniiHeP Bullet WountlH.
Ui'tnnrkabli' reports continue to
coine in testifying to the 'illumine'
character of wounds niailo by "the Mini
sit bullets-which arc now being used
by Hie liocrs and which were used
by the Spanish. The h,Usor bullet,
as is well known, is of 1 ninlU'alih'T
roughly a quarter of an inch in dia
meter and l !M!i inches in length
and is capped with n covering made
of hard copper-nickel alloy which
preserves the sharp conical shape
of the bullet and prevents the
spreading of the lead. The result is
that there is little of the horrible
mangling of flesh or shattering of
hones produced by the big lead
bullets formerly used. The Mrrtini
Henrv bullet used by the Ih'iti.h until
ten yours ago weighed 40(1 grains,
and this was light compared with
tile huge musket halls used flt the
period of the Civil War. The Lee
Met ford now used by the Lriiisl,
weighs L'10 grains, wink' th" Mausei
weighs only 171.
Tho distinctive feat. ire of wound.
due to the Mauser bullet is the clean,
small, well-di'tined. and circular
i, trance and exit wour.ds they
ause. The lluillet tuts its way
through tlesh and bone wbhout
leaving oily ragged ends, ar.d pro
duces a canal not anv larj-'-r than
Ignl-siz.vl gM.-).rU. S :.! Y.
those little canals arc of an incredi
ble length, hi one. case a man was
lying on tho ground tiring, when a
bullet entered his rhrht side am,
aine out on the inside of his left
knee, thus making a tunnel for
itself of 22 inch 's in length. Li an
other case a bullet entered the' right
shoulder and was removed at the
bottom of the back; having made a
little nassaire of 17 inches in
engtli. More than half the. wounds
met with are in the head. neck, or
houlder, and this is accounted for
by the fact that the present stylo of
warfare mainly consists of firing
whilst lying on tho face from behind
i piece of rock or small mound.
The course which some of these
missiles take without rupturing
important blood vessels and nerves
is marvelous! They sceiii literally
to run m and out amongst the large
arteries and veins,' and come out
again without damaging them. The
most skillful and delicate anatomist
that ever handled a scalpel would
find his knowledge and dexterity
taxed to the uttermost if he tried
to cut his way through the parts
and follow the track of these JJoor
projectiles ivithout doing irrepara
ble damage. Retained bullets are
comparatively uncommon no doubt
due to their enormous velocity and
mall size. Pathfinder.
A Proposed Alliance.
In the Gwaiko Jiho, Dr. Ariga,
uader the title of Tokubetsu Yukoku
( Specially Friendly Power), urges
the advisability of Japan's establish
ing very cordial relations with one
of the turopean Powers; which
Power should be asked to represent
her when international affairs nre
l.! .I:... i t-. .
uiiuy uiscussoii. jjr. Ariga says
that the Japanese have hitherto
regarded America as their greatest
friend, but that America's influence
in Europe is confined to England.
Hence Japan has reaped little
benefit from her reliance on the
United States to plead her. eviuse
at international council boards.
There are manv. savs Dr. Ai-b'n.
who advocate, our making a special
friend of England. Hut apart from
the fact that, thp present English
v..ayinei nas not. made overtures
of special friendshin. Endimd's
i 0 -.
relations with France and Russia
are such that mediatorship oil pur
Oeiiaif in the case of. these two
Powers could not. be successful.
uLTiiiuny, even u willing to come
to a special understanding with
us, is too much absorbed iu the
expansion of her empire to give
much attention to our affairs
France and Russia are out of the
, rr Ti.i .
question. 10 juay there are many
objections, one of the chief bcin
the frequent changes of Cabinet
that occur in that country and
the lack of harmony between the
King and the executive. The
l'ower to whom this country should
look for help, according to Dr.
Ariga, is Austria-Hungary. Al
though a member of the Triple
Alliance, lier relations with Russia
and France are very slightly
affected thereby. No country
better informed as to the tendency
of events m Europe. It is well
known that most of the diplomatic
secrets ot the West reach the
public ear through Vienna, which
city may be regarded lis:' the " diplo
matic cent re of Europe;. Austria:
Hungary has no special intercuts
in the Far East, and hence', jony
be relied on to act impartially when
piestions of Ear- Eastern policy
miii' up for discussion. As to
Vustria's willingness to draw closer
the ties of friendship that bind
ic'r to Japan, Dr. Arigiv is not
ible to tell us anything. Hence
the question it far -removed from
the sphere of practical politics.
