H$ A grand jury is a very nntiqinted iv.l cnmbev.soaia. piece ;f

It Is not too early to begin to teach the people of the Islands,
that tho office should seek' the man, because from present iadicii
T.ions there is going to bd ttn unseemly struggle for political pre
ferment this fall. If tho la'ty who want nothing but good govern
ment will quietly ina'.'e a note of ambitious statesmen whoai'.) over
anxious to servo their country, and quietly turn all such clown,
nabstitnting in their stead worthy men who are not seeking" ollice,
it will be much better for all concerned.
HI While the grand jury in Honolulu have not accomplished as
much as war: expocted of them, yet the charge of using tad much
whitewash is one based on prejudice rather than on a fair estimate
either u! tho men themselves or of what they really did a-' I did
not do. No grand jury should, after the next session of the" legis
lature, be culled on to do tfliat was required of the Honolulu Urand
The real danger to our sugar interests is not to be' found on
the islands, or even in tho United States, but in Cuba.' The scat
tered and individual sugar farms on the Island of Ciiba arc being
bought up and consolidated by corporations which are cop mg
from the Hawaiian Islands in the matter of ctieap and improved
machinery and methods. Nothing but a duty on Cuban sugar will
prevent disaster to Hawaiian1 sugar interests in tho next fev years.
D Wo would suggest in a brotherly way to tho kamrmias in all
tlie political parties that the malihini; ol what politics soever bs
more, recently in touch with tliq trend of Americanism oa the
mainland, should be encouraged to become members of the ?t
egiilaturo, in order that our organic laws may be as American a$
po.Sbible. If this proposition bo not sound, point out its y'eak spot.
El it i: t'y bo thatuberculosis is a contagious disease, but care
lessness m the matter of exposure to draughts is the better expla
nation of , tho prevalence of pulmonary diseases. Although the
climate of the Islands is mild and pfjviabid, yet it is tre'ache.-jus,
and more care should be taken to avoid catching cold, froni undue
exposure to draughts.
There is further talk of aii extra session of the legislature, to
be called after the regular election of members of the legislature
has been had. If the suggestion be not too blunt, wouldn't it be
better to wait and see who are .eiected before tlie proposition of
calling an extra session is agitated aiiy f ftrther?
gj It seems an almost absolute necessity thai llie're should be a
