this is probibly tru. still it is no l -ss true, that we must and will

S It is now claimed that the next legislature can only appoint a
commission to prepare a system of municipal county government
to be adopted two years from now, or at some other time in the
din: future. If the piopor committee on counties and county
government be appointed, a bill effecting that purpose and divid
ing the Territory ir.t: counties following our present Judicial Dis
tricts, or a batter divison. if possible, can easily bo prepared
during the term of the m;xt legislature, and made operative im
uuiately afterwards. Where there is a will there is always away,
and if the county government bill is not passed at the next term
of the legislature, and made operative immediately afterwards, it
will simply bo because somebody dont want it done.
f If the approaching legislature wishes to make a record which
will vdace the Territory of Hawaii among the van of progressive
f..fn ntirl tm-vitm-ios. it will at one fell blow abolish the false
system of education now prevalent on the Island, a system
which educates young Hawaiian to become helpless and use
less, and establish in its place both primary and grammar
schools where trades and industrial training are made tho princi
pal feature with ine'dentai instruction in the elementary branches
now taught. There is not an intelligent man on the Islands, who
really has the good of the Hawaiian children at heart, who would
not rather see thorn instructed in useful and practical branches of
knowledge than in puerile ologies.
The reason why there are not a dozen thriving business houses
in Waiiuku toe ay, handling goods which cannot bo purchased on
Maui, is because of tho difficulty of shipping goods direct to Kahu
iui, and tho practically prohibitive rates of charges for lighter-jgt
and freight on gv.ods from ships in the harbor to stores in Waiiuku.
A private corporation owr s Kahului and its wharves, and operates
them, as they have an undoubted right to do, as a private
corporation. True, the government owns from the high water
mark, but till the government builds a wharf at Kahului. and the
people open a public road to this wharf, general trade and business
will have tin uphill road to travel in ailuku.
H? The work of tho Republican Convention next week will be a
waited with more than ordinary interest, not only by republicans,
but also bv the people generally. And the most serious interest
centers about the plank relative to tho matter of framing a muni
cipal government for the different counties. to be established. To
omit such a plank, or to defer its operation to some indefinite
period, will parnlyze the t6ngues of republican s,poll binders when
thev come before the people and try to explain why they have
thus delayed ary chance for an early statehood.

Mullet will soon bo a thing of the

jlH If, as now seems likely, the democrats and independents of
Maui effect a fusion, the result will bo to so evenly divide the two
surviving parties as to put both on their metal in the matter of
nominating candidates to the legislature, and the result will pro
bably be that the best men on the Island will be selected as can
didates. May tlQ fittest survive.

people's fruits. When ho was scolded
for it, he would proudiv sav: "1 am

One day Freddie's father was told

Then Freddie bought sugar and

And all the people praised Freddie.
Freddie built a railroad to ruin
