j With this wenk practically ends the present session of the
first territorial legislature, the members of whom, in part, desire
that the session should be extended. Tins should be done only on
one condition, n inijly that the extended session should be devoted
wholly to the consideration or an uppropria;ion bill tor revenues
to run the government, nn;l methods by winch such revenues
chould be raised. With a satisfactory pledge to this effect, Gov
em or Dole would bi? quite jastiSed in extending the session, other
wise, not one hour of grace should be allowed. The time which
should have been devoted to the treatment of important topics
was largely squandered in trivial matters, and the farce has
continued long enough.
tjj When the Maui Hotel was in course of erectiou, and practi
cally completed, a group of old timers casually gathered one
morning on an opposite corners and were discussing the future of
t ,io hotel, and ono of them, a moss-backed kamaaina, predicted
t'nt withiu three months after it was evened, the drug store
v.- mid be turni.nl into a Chinese colfee shop, and that the up stairs
p irtion would bo tenanted by Japanese. As an answer to this
p.-ophecy, the directors met this week and resolved to add to the
p.-esont promises, as the hotel accommodations are at present too
1 inited to meet the demands of travel.
