deductions reflecting on the personality of the court, and :'.t is

fornia would have cost each of the gentlemen his license to prac
tice as an at torney. ut it must be admitted on the other hand
that the provocation v;as gre it. Judge Humphroy has bjon un
guardedly severe in his utterances on the bench, and lias thus in
vited attack. Having admitted that he feels a strong personal an
tagonism toward Walter S mil h, he should not have waited for
Kinney's question, but should have at once announced that Smith's
case should be assigned to some other judge for trial. Having in
timated that he might possibly try the case, it became necessary
to tile aftidatits for a change' of venue. Such an affidavit should
have shown facts on which the motion was based, but when it
went further and presenterl deductions rellooting on Judge Hum
phrey's private character and '"personal weaknesses," it went be
yond what should have been allowed. Notwithstanding all this.

there is no more urgent need on Maui than that of the old fashion
ed New England kitchen garden. There is a small area on almost
every house lot that could be profitably planted to vegetables
.' which would Uourish in this climate. Several varieties of pump-

! 2 Japan will one day be a republic, though some of us may not
Lflive to see it, and its republicanism will be traced directly to Ply-
mouth Rock, via the Hawaiian Islands. The Japanese children
who are now being educated as American citizens in Hawaii will
be the ones to carry the seeds of nopular government to Japan.
. And if Japan then asks for annexation to tho United States, which
will at that time cover tho whole of the western continent and
westward to the Philippines, there will be but one thing to do, and
that will be to annex it.
5 The affairs of men and of governments rarely move on a
steadily rising tide, but rather advance and recede in waves.
This is true of business communities as well as in the alfairs of the
I nation. Occasionally far receding waves will leave men and meas
; ures stranded, but underneath it all is tho steady forward move-
nient of Anglo Saxon civilization, idealized into American progress,
, und the future is bright for 11 who wait for the returning waves.
V Let us not worry about' the present crisis on Hawaii, for it will
come out all right.
' SSl A large amount of trade on Maui is being diverted from Ho.
nolulu to coast and eastern houses, and- in the course of human
events the merchants of Maui will draw their entire stock from
this source. The Honolulu licu'so" which first has the enterprise to
establish a wholesale branch house in San Francisco with the ex
press object in view of selling directly to the different Islands will
; reap a rich harvest. That is apparently the only way to beat the
: coast drumuiei'.
j The suppression of the canteen has increased the evil of
' drunkenness in the army, und it is quite as true that the attempt-
ed suppression of the saloon in Wailuku has had a like etfect. It
1 is about time that the temperance reformers should learn a few
' practical lessons. It Bounds paradoxical to say that increase in
the number of saloons established in Wailuku will have atendeucy
- to stop heavy drinking, nevertheless such is the demonstrated
f gift The citizens of Wailuku should loosen their purse strings and
i, supply the needed funds to make
; grounds a success. It would, not
wpuld beside go far to the permanent establishment of a public
! park in Wailuku. At present thd ground is held by a four year
;, tenure, but no doubt the title to this property could eventually bo
acquired at a reasonable sum for; public purpos'es.
1 t& Ai g the Hawaiian Islands capable of self government, or will
t President McKinley have to make' tcs a province with a military
governor from Ohio until vrq learn that each' of . the arms of our
territorial government, the executive, judicial and legislative,
; has il$ distinct duties to perform, unhampered by unwarranted
'interference? Please dont hitgh at us, Home , Kulas, . for maybe
; we .will scorT get the kinks out of the present little mix up.

u sS? The report originating in Honolulu' with reference' to . Chinese
, being compelled to pay for registering' on Maui is probably a
Ijiurd. The Chinese are too shrewd to be deceived as to their
jrigis to freer registry, ilfi laboWrvand t probable' that the cUsap-tpc-l.ioient

Tim House on Friday morning laid

table, or the ground that his stand
in as acting governor was doubt
ful. The matter of mileage and salaries
bobbed up serenely. Representa
tive lloogs said that lie could un
tangle the knot if the House would
but agree to accept the following
Hon. J. A . Akina,
Sneaker House of Representatives
Sir: 1 desire to call the attention of
the Legislature to the fact that there
is si question of the legality of Hon.
If. E. Cooper as Acting Governor.
Therefore be it Resolved,
That we, the members of this first
J.iei.s:aiure ot llawnn return our
salary and mileage to the Treasurer
Vv. H. 1IOOGS,
Rpresenlatlve 4th District.
I concur, J. MONSARRAT,
Representative 2nd District.
After considerable talking the re
solution was lost.
The Senate declined to confirm the
appointment of Dr. C. L. Garvin as
a member of the Board of Health.
The motion not to confirm was made
by William White, Cecil Brown and
ueorgc Li. (Jarter- cletencleu tne ap
pointment and Garvin but their ef
forts were of no avail. No reason
for turning down the appointee was
given by the opposition. All the
other appointees, including the re
maindcr of the Board of Health,
superintendent of public works, com
missioner of land and treasurer were
approved without opposition.
Senator Kanuha offered a resolu
tion calling upon tho Governor for
tho remainder of his appointments.
Cecil Brown reported on the pay
of police of Hawaii, Maui and Kauai,
recommending that all of the 4tems
pass as in the bill. Baldwin, Kala
uokalani and others objected to any
cuts. An amendment to the report
was finally gotten through in which
the High Shefiff is requested to ap
ply the money to the ordinary police,
The communication from the act-
iug governor similar to tho one sent
to tho Senate, recommending the
floating of $791,00() worth of bonds

Emmeluth offered the following re
"Iu view of the fact that the au
thority of the Secretary of the Ter
ritory to act as Governor, has been
questioned, and is now before the
courts of the Territory to determine,
that until such determination the
communication from the Acting
Governor be laid on the table."
Kaniho said that it was not for the
house to determine the status of
Cooper. They were here simply to
pass favorably or unfavorably upon
the matters brought before them
Emmeluth in reply, criticised the
position taken by the Attorney Gene
ral Kaniho said that when Acting
Governor Cooper, sigued the appro
priation bill for $30,000, thereby al
lowing the members of the House to
secure the mileage to say nothing of
their salaries, the validity of the
position occupied by Cooper was not
brought into question but since the
money had been jingling in the
pockets of the Representatives for a
fow days, they began to question the
right of the position o! Governor
Dole's substitute. Upon a vote be
ings called for, the letter of the act
iug governor was laid upon the table
Military appropriations went to
