Twenty years ago the American nation stood dazed and
reeling from the 6hock of the assassination of President James R.
Gartield. Rachel wept over her first born, and would not be com
forted. Today the American people once more stand agonized
and quivering under a like blow in the assassination of President
William McKinley. Where is the end? Unquestionably both
deaths are the result of fanttic, but organized anarchistic senti
ment, originally imported to this country from the hot beds of
Eumpeon socialism. If to stop President killing, it was suffl Merit
to extinguish this nest of Communists, they shouM be swept and
garnished from every nook and cranny in the United States, if
practicable. But unfortunately ' even that may not prove an

Snd a man in every respect worthy of the position which he has
been called upon to assume. An American in the finest sense of
the term. Strong, steady and self-reliant. The American people
may breathe a sigh of relief a: the thought that the executive
power will be lodged in such hands.

that this country was to be governed by the whites, a desperate
struggle would at once begin between the two factions in Honolulu,
and w hich would result in a continuous political turmoil which would
doubtless disgust President Roosevelt to the extent that he would
feel inclined to wash bis hands off the whole affair. This simply
proves that it is idle for this territory to expect harmony through
outside influences. 1 here never will be political harmony in the
' territory until it is built up in the territory, and as the News has
often pointed out, this harmony can only come through a uniting of
a majority of the better element of the Islands drawn together not
for political spoil but for the purpose of establishing a healthy,
harmonious, and solid government for the Territory,
j8 Shut up a drunkard in a box and feed him through a key hole
and you will certainly stop his drinking. But you won't reform
him. No laws however wise or good can be made or inforced, which
will reform the drinking habit. For that reason the News has
never favored sumptuary legislation. The love of drink is gene
rated by a man's natnral desire for liquor, rather than by the exi st
ance of Saloons. But when you can lead or influence or move a
man to take you by the right hand and look through your eyes into
your s,oul and say to you, maybe with quivering lips and voice.
;'I seeUhe folly of killing my body and soul with drinkj J hereby

canse ctf temperance than legislation can ever accomplish. The
Francis Murphy movement is laid down along the right lines, and
it is now for the people of Wailuku to stand by him and help his
good work along here.

Fuel Oil for Hawaii.
John Baker, Jr., manager of the)
Union Oil Company of California, ar
rived yesterday on the steamship
Ventura. He will estaolish in the
Islands a plant to supply fuel oil to
plantations which have decided to
snbstitute oil for coal as a fuel.
Contracts were made by Mr. Bak
er in San Francisco with Alexander
& Baldwin to install tail's on Maui
from which supplies will be drawn
for the Hawaiian Commercial & Sug
ar plantation, Paia plantation, Haiku
Sugar plantation ar,d Kihei planta
tion, for all of which Alexander A
Baldwin are the agents. The power
generating plants of the mills will be
modified at once to enable the man
agements to use fuel oil iustead of
coal in the future, and a system of
conserving tanks will be erected on
sites convenient to all the plantations
The oil will be conveyed to the var
ious mills and pumping plants by
means of pipe lines.
The arrival of Mr. Baker in the
field with a medium to compete with
coal in the generation of power for
plantation purposes marks anew ei a
in Hi- developedment of the sugar
indut t rv. Mr. Baker claims that on
an average about thisty-five per
cent is saved by the substitution ol
oil as fuel instead of coal. This per
centage is arrived at by an average
of the cost for fuel on the mainland.
Comparing the cost fuel there with
that in the Hawaiian Islands, Mr.
Baker expresses an opinion that
within a short time after oil hasbeei.
given a practical demonstration,
about fifty per cent will be saved.
The magnitude of the undertaking
which Mr. Baker intends establishing
in the Islands is of unusual propor
tions. His company which is the
oldest in California intends putting
on a line of four vessels between
coast ports and the Islands two
steamers and two sailing ships.
The company has come to the Isl
ands to stay and the length of Mr.
Baker's visit will be determined b.t
the delay in receiving the materials
for the constructions of the tanks.
The first shipment of tank material
will come on the May Fliut which will
sail from San Francisco op October
4, arriving here about the 25th. Sev
eral hundred tons will bo put aboard
and there will bo three times as
much more to arrive by subsequent
vessels. Mr. Baker, in stating thr
plans of the company to a.i Adverti
ser reporter, said yesterday:
"The Maui plantations have decid
ed upon oil as a fuel instead of coa'
aud 1 am here to commence the in
stallation of the plant. The con
struction of the tanks is a part of
our obligation. We expect to keep
on hand a supply of about 150,000 to
200,000 barrels. This is on the basis
of our contracts already secured.
This would be an average of six
months' (supply. The oil would be
brought here from California. We
are the largest factors in the oil bus
iness on the coast and control about
sixty-five per cent of all the storage.
We have more territory than all the
other companies, controlling in the
neighborhood of 200,000 acres. Fur
ther than thh the Union Oil Company
own ninety-five per cent of all the
pipe lines in the Stnte of California.
"Far the island ti ado we have one
vessel rea-ly to commence transpor
ting the oil and three others will be
ready when necessary. The first ves
sel to Bail for tha Islands will carry
15,000 barrels of oil in bulk. The
steamer is divided into compartments
for carrying the oil, although the
'skin' of the ship is in reality the out
side of the tank.
"Barring any difficulty in labor on
the coast wo expei t the first ship
ment to arrive here next February.
By that time we will bo iu readiness
to receive our supplies and for the
ours, be done." Roosevelt summoned;'
plantations to commence milling and
primping operations with oil as their
fuel. The changes to bo made in
making over the boilers will be in-i
expensive. There will be a few slisrht
modifications. There is no danger
from explosions and it is a fact that
every powder manufacturing concern
in California is now using oil as fuel
it stead of coal.
"Every beet sugar mill in Califor
nia is now using oil for fuel, the
Rpreckels being about the largest
consumers' of the product, the Santa
Fe Railroad coming next.
"We have made a long term con
tract with Alexander & Baldwin to
supply the Maui plantations for
which they are agents. I will go to
Maul soon and locate the tank sites.
When the material arrives here we
will send down a force of about twen
ty men from San Francisco to do the
work. Our shipping ports are at San
Pedro, Oleun, Ventura and Sau

with incest. The trial is set for to
day. Jas. L' Coke appears for Ka
maka. The coatless man puts a careless arm
Round the waist of the hatless girl,
As over the dustless and mudless road
In a horseless carriage they whirl,
Like a leadless bullet from a ham
By smokeless powder driven,
They fly to test the spcedless joy
By endless union given,
Though the only lunch his coinless
Aflord to them the means
Is a tasteless meal of a bonelesss cod
With a "side" of stringless beans,
He puffs a tobaccoless cigarette,
And laughs a mirthless laugh
When papa tries to coax her back
By wireless telegraph.
