MRS. 0. B. ROBERTSON, Bus. Mgr.
Of In tho face of senseless nnd ndverso criticism, the wireless
telegraph has domonfctratcd it uso and usefulness, and is now one
f the fixtures of tho Islands. For tho past two weeks tho News
has received late telegraphic news from Honolulu on Fridays,
accomplishing a fair scoop in its last issue, relative to the arrival
of the body of tho late Mrs. Parker, the refusal to remove Gover
nor Dole and U. S. Secretary Hitchcock's reply to Acting Gover
nor Cooper as to tho bonds of tho Kcpublic. As no other answer
could be mado to this practical demonstration of tho successful
us of tho wireless system, the silly rumor was circulated that the
News had faked its news. However, the Honolulu mail which
arrived on Sunday con fi mod the nows published the day before by
tho Maui paper, whose readers can rest assured that any item
published under tho head of "wireless" is absolutely authentic.
jQ? The Honolulu papers are discussing the. question of whether
or not the recent legislature was a failure. That it was an abject and
deplorable failure is too patent for discussion, but as a matter of
fact, no one clique or party, not even the Home Rulers aro wholly
to blame for this. Public feeling was in a ferment when they were
elected and the bitterness of personal feeling was rampant. Much
of this has passed off in froth, and the people generally have come
to their 6ober senses. Consequently the next legislatureMs to be
hoped for rather than to be feared, and it is a safe prediction that
any party or clique who again endeavors to rain by agitating fac
tional feeling will find the mass of the people arrayed solidly against
it. We have done politics in this legislature, but we will
do business In the next one.
jQj The New York Tribune owes the press of the Islauds a public
and abject apology for a most infamously untrue and scurrillous
attack. The people of the Islands have a just right to feol proud
of the leading papers of the Islands, and of their editors and pro
prietors. Almost without exception the press of tho Islands is
clean and high in tone, so much so
pare favorably with the yellow press of tho coust, and thore is no
doubt but that the Tribune will do them justice when its editorial
attention is i called to the injustice done to the Island press
SOt Of course the territory would not begrudge the money to pay
the expenses of a tax commission on a trip to the states for the
purpose of investigation the different systems prevailing there,
provided that suitable men formed the commission, but if such
men as Emmelufh and the home rule legislators are to constitute
such commission, the money could hotter be used for other pur
poses. Neither Emeluth nor any of the rest of tho commission, as
organized, are men in whom tho pooplo trust, and the News, lor
one, is squarely against allowing them a red cent.
t$ Only last week the News referred to the lack of hydrants
and a hose and hose cart in Wailuku, and the fire in Honolulu
erres to punctuate what was said. Of course the people most
interested are those who in
they are the ones to take the initiative in organizing a move in the

Underwriters Survey Wailuku.
Mr. A. R. Gurrey, secretary of the
Board of Underwriters of the Haw
aiian Islands, has been engaged for
tho past week in making the first
oftleial survey of Wailuku on behalf
of the board of underwriters. Here
tofore in fixing the rates of fire in
gurunce on Maui, each company has
been guided solely by such conditions
as presented themselves in each in
dividual case, and as a Result, no fix
eu rates ou tne same classes of pro
perty have been tho rule, but abi
trnry rates have beeu fixed.
The principal object of Mr.- Gur-
ri y's visit to tho Island was to survey
tin- sugar mills for the put-pose of
discovering if anything could be done
in the matter of lowering rhill insur
oii. e, and although he has so far ex
aniined only tho Haui Kinahulu.
...iluku and Pioneer Mills, he hat
been able to make suggestions iu the
mutter of making these properties
less risky which, will materially re
duce the rate of insurance. The re
moval of a dangerous electric wire,
the bruigiug in of a water ptper as
well a many other minor changes In
auy given piece of property to be in
sured, will have much weight in de
tormiulng the rato of inurnce to be
charged, and tho -examination of
su h property by Secretary Gurry
frequently result in suggestions for
lessening the hazard and thus reduc
ing the rate.
For this reason, Mr. Gurry has
leu requested by many of the own
ers of insured property on Maui' to
vUit such property aud make recom
mendations along these Hues.
Of cour&e, it makes no particular
difference to the insurance compunvre
whether the property insured U
slightly or highly tiaiardoui, foe the
reasou that tbey establibh the rate of
insurance according to the risk iu
wJved. The property owners are
the one to e benefited by' lessen
ing the harard of an Insurable- pice
of property! . t
A to WtUuku, Mr. Ovirrey 1UU1
that if hydrants were placed in the
water mains aud a hose carts and 500
feet of hose Were provided, the rate
of insuranco on Wailuku property
would be materially lowered, and he
expressed surprised that the citizens
of Wailuku who insure have, not tak
en steps to prod the government in
to making such provisions. . -
Mr. Gurrey was called to IIouolulu
on account of the recent tire, but
will as soon as possible, return to
Maui and resume the inspection of
ins'urable property. The result of
his work will doubtless prove benefi
c.al to those having property
