i It may safely be conceded tliat if the home rulo party should
oloct the members of the next legislature, nothing nioro could be
exacted of thorn than has beeu realized at the present session.
logically it follows then, that for self protection, there will -have to
be nn amalgamation of all the hotter clusses of people in order to
electa competent logical ure, Had Out been done at. the last
election, the result would have been very .different. Had either
the republican or democratic party been succssful at the last
election, tho result would have provod satisfactory,-but the people
of the Islands cannot afford to stay by their respective parties at
the next election, at the expense of nuother home rule victory. How
about that, Bulletin?
fes It would have been a rash assertion to liave made a month
go that the Advertiser and the Home Rule party would have boen
louna pulling- tog-ether on any
thing has come to pass on the question of merging the Islands in
to the body politic of California. Let ui hope that this is an omen
of coming events, and that the time is not bo far off when there
win do suci. unity of interests, that the missionaries, malihinis,
haoles uad Hawaiians generally will forget the unpleasant past and
ail pun together for the common
Then will the lion and the lamb
togetner, and a little child will lad them.
The Bulletin and the Republican are taking the back track on
t ne proposition of annexing Hawaii to California, and the Adver
tiser is making a strong fight against the proposition. The home
rulers are standing side by side
from a different point of view.
should take place, it would give county government entirely over
to the Hawaiians homo rule party, which may ba one of the rea
sons why the Advertiser thinks it wise to oppose the proposition.
-fvnu maeea mac would be- a calamity, if the Hawaiians should
make uo better selections for county officers than they have for
The Boer war is assuming the phase that marked the struggle
between tho thirteen colonies and the mother country ivhich led
to the independence of the Uuited States.. The colonies were poor
in jacket and almost without munitions of war, but they were
determined men, and Great Britain could not keep them whipped.
The same trouble exist with the Boers. England can conquor
them on a hundred battle lieleU, and then tind her wcrl all to do
over again. Even the plethoric pocket book of John Bull cannot
stand such a continual drain, "and by holding out to the bitter end,
the Boers have a chance to win yet.
J$ While the promiscuous "carpetbagger" is not particularly
desired on the Islands, .still there is plenty of room here for a
large number of "carpetbaggers" who will come here to develop
the numerous latent possibilities bf the Islands now lying dor
mant for the lack of energy and enterprise to tak hold of them.
That class of carpetbeggers will continue to come here for some
time, and they deserve a welcome, for their advent will be an un
mixed cause of benefit to the material interests of the Islands.
Ripe in years,, ripe inbonorsand rich in the love of his fel
low men, Paul Neumann has been called home. The death of no
other man on all the Islands would so have touched tho hearts of
all the people. - His social qualities, his keen wit, and his urbane
address, combined with his sterling manhood; make his memory

can on the next Fourth of July repeat the- experience of
this and have a lot of second to fifth class races, or we can give a
thret) days' exhibit of the industries and productions of Maui in
the. form of an industrial and agricultural fair, and have much
better races in the bargain. Will the Maui Racing Association
look into tha proposition at their first meeting after the races?
i It U a common experience that after a battle in which there
has been heavy counonading, thera will be a precipitation of rain,
which has come to be regarded as cause and effect. Now that the
Islands are having a dry spell, it might be a good idea to send up
a number of sticks of dynamite with lighted fuses, attached to toy
balloons. Better wait for a southeast wind, however.
fjj Ship canals across the western continent have become a
world's necessity, and will not be much longer deferred. Of
course diplomacy ill play its part, and may cause temporary
delays, out hwu the time is ripo, .vessels of the largest tonage

Edward Everett Hale tells of one
of the earliest Fourth of July cele
brations of his remembrance. It
was that of the year 183!1, and on
that day for tho first time a great
chorus of school children sang "Mjr
Country, Tis of Thee."
He speaks of a favorite poem of
that day which was much in evidence
on the Fourth. It was written by
Royall Tyler, and its begining was:
Suueftk ilia life ami beat drum.
Independence duy bas como
It was just about this tirr.c that
the character of the celebration of
tho anniversary of the birthday of
American independence besran to
change. Parades were held a& usual,
but noise began to take the place of
speeches, and in the largo towns of
tho reading of the Declaration of In
dependence, which had always been
a feature of the celebration.
The opening of trade with China
brought in the small firecrakers, and
iVnicrican factories soon found the
means of making big ones. Noise as
sumed the scepter and has reigned
ever since. Boston Globe.

Immigration Into Cuba continues

It is astonishing to learn that in the
same time only seventeeu immi

Aud here wo are proposing to
Americanize the island. The situa
tion reminds one of what the histor
ian, Froude, said years u, i: "What
ever the eventual fate of Cuba, the
ppanish race has taken root there

coming out of the wreck with 10,000
dead and missing. The groat cala
