. Although tho wisdom of any material increase in their salary is not
plainly apparent. But if such increase is made, in the number of
judges, it would be obviously unfair to call in outsiders, instead of
promoting experienced judges from the outside districts to my
vacancy which may be created in Honolulu. Judge John Kal iu,
for instance, Circuit Court Judge of the Second Judicial Circuit,
who is an able jurist of long experience, should be promoted to
any vacancy thus created,1 rather than to put on the bench an in
experienced man. Nothing would please tho people and the legal
fraternity of Maui more than to see this honor tendered to and ac
cepted by Judge Kalua.

There is nothing novel in the

parents, but there is fundamental
truth in it nevertheless. The fact
that we are almost entirely tho
creatures .of our environment ac
counts for the slow inarch of progress
from generation to generation. Ar
gue as we will it is next to impossi
ble to yet outside of ourselves; anil
yet we must do it in order to pro
gross. For a good while I have been
observing closely the methods, or
lack of methods, used by parents in
bringing up their children. Our
stock breeders have reduced to a
science the raising of hogs; our
fruit men have learned to do almost
anything they please in the develop
ment of fruits; our florists are able
to perforin miracles with flowers.
Such things as these are made tho
basis of exhaustive study. Farmers
today are expected to have and
must have a largo fund of exact
knowledge relating to their work.
But the science of child culture re
mains undeveloped. Parents bring
up their children haphazard and it
is no wonder that the rising genera
tion is always confronted with pro
blems which bailie solution, or that
children are, as the fanner would
say, an "uncertain crop." All around
us we see children of intelligent,
moral, well-to-do people going to
tfie devil, while in many cases boys
and girls who have had no chance

What are the scientific laws un

manhood and womanhood? Nobody
knows them, and very few are study
ing them. Parents are very generally
lost in the scramble for the dollar,
fashion and . fame. They have ' no
time to give to the cultivation of
their children except incidentally.
They think that having pitched them

their whole duty has been done. This
will be so as long as worldly ostenta

Men are living organisms; they de

they were stones they might accumu

case, mifcfht be, from external sources.
The central germ of our society is
the family and we must look to the
family life for whatever, permanent
improvement we may hope to see in
the race. I have lately several
times heard parents tell their child
ren that the "black man" would get
them, that the "choo-choo" would
eat them up, or something equally
as untrue. This sort of thing is one
of the commonest crimes against
children. They are taught to four the

We are "5.000,000 and we feel good;
the former statement is based on
census, calculations and the latter on
common consent. Before we get
down to details it is well just to take
ourselves in a lump and enjoy it. A
century ago there were not so many
of us as there are the Dutchmen in
tiny Holland, and now we are the sec
ond power of the world in population,
and the first in wealth and resources.
We rub our eyes and wonder how
it all happened. That nlso is a det ail;
tlie main point is that we are here.
Seventy-five million Americans domi
ciled in this lepublic turn, across
tlie Atlantic, a glance of good nature
and good fellowship at the bellicose
military powers of Europe and, across
the Pacific, a glance of hope and
helpfulness at the worn-out and dy
ing nations of Asia.
We are very big, but wo are not
unwleldly. We are strong, but we
are not muscle-bound; our nerves
dominate our sinews. Our interests
are so interwoven and at heart so
harmonious that in a really national
matter the voice of 75.000,000 peo
ple speaks through the voice of the
President. Our population is so
linked and banded by railroads and
tolegiaph wires and navigable rivers
that it can move as one' mass, and
its strength is felt through the arm
of the President. 1
There is nothing that may not be
predicted of 75,000,000 people who
are young and vigorous and hopeful
aud acutely intelligent, with a sense
of humor and a happy-go-lucky
spirit and a desire to think well of
their neighbors and to have tin
neighbors think well of them. Our
satisfaction is born of knowledge
that things are coming our way;
that there are no grudges to be
meted out against us and no entang
ling obligations for us to pay.
We can just go ahead with a clear
slate and work out our destiny in the
full confidence that everything we
have done to date is promise; our
real performance lies ahead. With
diffidence we appropriate to our
selves the opening words of Gibbon's
Rome; wo comprehend . the fairest
part of the earth and the most
civilized portion of mankind."

tion which is known to have been
worked by the Celtic tribe before
the Christian era. It consists of a
series of horizontal galleries driven
through the limestone rock of the
mountain. The rock is impregnated
with salt but the salt docs not occur
in deposits large enough to mine.
Accordingly the galleries are allowed
to fill with water from tlie mountain
streams and at the end of (! weeks
this water is saturated with salt
