HI A mistake impression his gone abroad that the News has
worked up a boom in Waiiuku. This is really not the case. We
have unquestionably pointed out good opportunities to develop no v
lines ul business in Waiiuku, and other lines have developed
without suggestion. No one, so far, has had cause to regret com
ing to Waiiuku, and if careful investigation is made and &ood
judgment used in developing new lines of business, no one will
have cause to regret com uig here, fcmiphatically, tuereisuo
boom hero, and it is to be hoped that there will be none. But for
a!i that, Waiiuku has started on a steady growth, and will not stop
till it reaches the development which it needs.

And it is n less a desirable spot for winter homes for the ice

time is coming when there will be scores of just such residences

of tho town. The climate of Waiiuku is simply delightful all the

The j.latform of the. republican party for the Territory of Ha
yaii is rather a creditable affairs, with only one or two weak spots
iu it, and the ticket named for Maui on that platform is rather a
creditable aggregation, with only one or two weak men on it, The
weak points in the platform are notably the one relating to county
government and the one a'tempt'ng to have the Hawaiian languasre
adopted lor legislative purposes, lheycudtit really mean unit,
though, but merely put it in because they did not have the mnral
courage to eliminat3 it. As for the weak, men on the ticket, we will

There are two different kinds of
peeling; one, of dry land taro, and
the otner, of wet land taro. Before
peeling dry lnjul taro, a shell, which
is called iwi opihi and is used for
scraping o!f the outside of the taro,
is to be gotten- To those, who are
familiar w th it use, this fecms to
be tho best kind of a thin" with

prefer a flat stick. After this is
provided, barrels or calabashes and
some water tor coohnjr the hands
are also to be gotten.
When tho taro is to be peeled, the
left hand must be wet so as not to
get burnt in ho'.duig the hot taro.
The iwi opihi is then used with the
right hand, and tho rough outer
skin of the taro scraped olf. The
custom of most of the Hawaiians is
to peel 'the taro directly from the
