2 One occasionally hears the assertion that the starting of a news
paper in Wailuku was the cause of the renewed growth of the town.
While complimentary, this is not true any further than that a live
newspaper in a town tends to advertise the town. As a matter of
fact, the News is an elTect rather than a cause, for the time had
come when a local newspaper was a necessity, and it was only a
question of who should start it. Two other propositions were
under serious consideration when the News stepped in and occu
pied the field. It was the impulse of growth which had reached
the Islands that caused the starting of a paper here, and not the
influence of the paper that caused the impulse of growth.
Those who have the best interests of the Islands at heart,
cannot but hope that the "missionary" republicans arid the "boxer"
republicans of Honolulu will be able o effect a coalition. There are
pood, wise and conservative men in both wings of the party, and
(Jod knows that the principles of the republican party are broad,
citholic and progressiva enough to afford a common ground for
Ihom; and without being particularly optimistic, one can well
Ijslieva thit such a condition will come about, because
the WDlfir? of t'n I-dvil impriousl daraiais a repub
lican victory at the next election.
Jjg There ha.? been a considerable reduction in the salaries of offi
cials by the legislature, but not more than wasi needed, and in
somo cases not so much. 1 he amount for the police force on Maui
was reduced from ?40,000 to fc.Tj.OOO, and in justification of this it
cm truthfully b3 ur:p.l that t'i3 volum? of crimirril business has
been largely reduced on Maui within the past year or two. The
News does not favor the reduction of the salaries of the police
men. but trie ciiances are mat mere win not oe so many ponce
heeded in the future on Maui.
Is it not about time to meet and appoint a committee to make
proper arrangements to glv3 a routing Fourth of July celebration
this year? A genuine Fourth of July would be a novelty in Wai
i-uku especially if a barbo."U3 in American sty la were made a feature
of the occasion. Snoh a celebration would b3 worth much mora
that the troubla and expense of getting it up, and there are enough
of old timo rrfainl.mders on tha Island to carry it through iri good
style, wiih speech?, music, barbecua and firerorks. Lot us
have a rouscir.

There is a bushel of money in pouiiry raising on Maui. With
a practically unlimited demand for eggs at from thirty to sixty
cents a do7.eu and .Tor chickens a dollar ap'ece, why should there
not be? The only drawback to such an enterprise is the preva
lence of disbasa among fdwls tin Miui, but it has bscm demonstrat
ed that the exercise of proper care will largely obviate this diffi
culty. There is no better proposition on the Island for those of
small means and a taste and talent for this industry. , hp,. '
There is not a visitor who
unhesitatingly proriounco the climate of our town as uicamparably
superior to that of any other town on the Islands. Wuluku is well
equipped with hotels, botii for the travelling, jfiifv13'! fpr famis
hes who wish to come here and recuperatp fof r jfdw weeks, and
there is no doubt but that our little city nil in timio become a
Mecca for those who aro seeking a.i outing for health and
picturesque scenery. i 3f?Jp
j5? Boss Emmeluth is a frau-T, r i fact which be took considerable
trouble and pains to demorsttrate last week on Quarantine Island.
True, the conditioujspjp Poi'to Ricans was pitiable, but
this was not trtfelifliims W them, and it would have been the
? height of foHyi Aav detained them fourteen days In Tiuarantine.
YiJqsiJiljViBeluth is a transparent fraud, but the chances are
'A-hat he takes himself in serious earnest and don't realize it.
j jQ Wailutru has just cause to feel proud of the Settlement Build
r 5ng and its work in our midst. IJn tho lirst idace, it is unique in
its distinctive features, thei'u being no other similar institution on
the Islands, and secondly it is in a quiet way doing a most excel
r lent work for the young people of Wailuku and such of tho elder
. ones as choose to avail themselves of tho opportunities which it
ptfers for amusement and ontertainmont for idle evenings.
I Those in the. temote districts of Maui who aro in a position to
j do so, owe it as a duty to send to the local, paper such items as will
interest readers. It would bo a surprise, to some to know how de
I endent,eveu tho Honolulu papers aro on Jhoso Mho voluntarily
contribute to the iows columns cf the Honolulu dailies. Send

The Census of 170O.
When the first census of the Lull

were 1! states and tho southwest and
tho northwest territories. Thcrc
tut'tls fixed Iho population at S,-?,'
211, while those of 1900 gVvc over
7(5,000,000, n fourtecn-fold growlli lit
In tho first census nothing was

United States marshal, who per
formed the work for several censuses.
In the census library fs a record of
the first census, which1 chows that the
census of 1790 wa ordered in March
and completed by October, 1791, a
very creditable showing when the
difficulty of communication is consid
ered. The population was divided
into five classes free white males of
16 years and upward, including heads
of families; free whits females, in
cluding heads of families; free white
males under 10 years, other persons,
slaves. Fourteen enumeration dis
tricts were mapped out of the 1(5
states arid tlvo population of the
towns, counties and states given,
All of the states except Maine and
Massachusetts had slaves. Virginia
led with a population of 747,010 whites
and 292,000 slaves. North Carolina
was second, 303,721 whites and 100,
000 slaves. Maryland had a popula
tion of 411,755, of which 103.N3G were
slaves. The slave population of tho
northern states is given as follows:
New Hampshire, 158; Bhode. Is
land, 948; Connecticut, 2,8154; New
York, 21,324; New Jersey, 11,423;
Pennsylvania, 3,237; Delaware, 8,887;
Tha population of the southwest
territory was 35,991 wliites and 3,417
The record is full of errors' in cal
culation and addition, but is interest

has increased and how the art of
census taking has developed with the

A. A. Gallagher, district .passen
ger agent of tho Missour .Pacific
railroad, while enroute souiA was'
keii quftf'tfaftc! V. fW-'itl.neiUd to
s!tay tt Mantifomeiry, Ala. Tic went
tiatafcifrW and sent for a physician.
Tho medical man said:
jltfYou have a case of pneumonia
aad must have a nurse."
"All right," said Gallagher. Do
ypu know a good nurse you can send
to look after me?"
The doctor said he did and would
hove the nurse at the hotel within an
hour. In about an hour a colored
woman who measured about nine feet
in girth put in an appearance, and
Gallagher asked her if she had ever
nuraCd sick people.
"Yes, indeed," she replied.. 'Tze
had considerable sporience with ail
ing pursons; I nussed Master John,
and he died; then I nussed Mistress
Lucy, and she died; then I nussed
Mistress Lucy's sister. The doctor
didn't think she wus so very poorly,
but she done died."
"Have you had any other experi
ence in nursins?-' asked Gallasher.
"Yea, indeed. Only last week I
left Colonel Carter's house, where I
nussed tho colonel for five days."
"Well did the colonel get well?"
"No. The colonel he died, tod, but
Dr. Jones, who teaded him, .run a big
knife into tho colonel and opened
him up. The doctor had been out late
niidit before and was a little uer-
us. Thd fcrlife sort of slipped and
just about cut the colonel's heart

couldu't save him."
"You seem to be a good nurse,"
said Gallagher, "you're engaged."
