5f The time has now arrived when Wailuku must emerge from
the crysalis stage of sleepy villagedom into the lively little Ameri
can town which it is about to become. The Ishmaelites, whose
hand is against every man!s hand must either bo suppressed or
converted from the error of their wajs, and the citizens of Wai
luku, forgetting the childish bickerings and jealousies of the past,
must join hands and pull together for the upbuilding of one of the
prettiest and most delightful and healthful little towns on the Isl
ands. The first thing to be done is to call a citizens' meeting and
effect a permanent organization, with a live head and active mem
bers. Then one by one, the county seat, a new court house and
jail, an industrial high school, a proper water system, electric
lights, more residence houses to rent, and whatever else is needed
could be provided for in due season. And the initiative cannot be
taken too soon.
President Roosevelt is beginning to taste of the martyrdom
which the world hastens to inflict on all reformers. Already Sen
ator Hanna has drawn his battle axe, and will find an enthusiastic
following among disgruntled southern republicans. The Andrew
Jacksons of the South, who had drawn very near to President
Roosevelt are benumbed by his fraternizing with a negro, even
thongh it be Booker T. Washington, so that the president has be
come, or is fast becoming "a frost" in the south. Republicans in
the north and west will be offended by Roosevelt's refusals to con
sider their wishes in the matter of appointments, and the time is
not far distant when President Roosevelt will findhimself up against
machine politics. Then will come the tug of war, and it remains
to be seen whether or not the people will stand by' the president.
Jj There is coming a ground swell in home rule politics which
seems to indicate that the native

the recent legislature, and that, at the next election, if successful,
they will elect honest and intelligent Hawaiians to the legislature.
So much is clear gain, but if the leaders of the home rule party
can repress personal ambition and select men of intelligence and
integrity whether white or Hawaiian, whether republican or home
rule, then Hawaiians will govern
tions that when this ground swell comes', men like White and
Beckley, and possibly Wilcox himself will bo incontinently turned

"Honolulu is just about as peachy
as any place I've been in lately,"
said the Cheerful Liar with a far
away look in his eye. "Why, that
town is building up so that a man

Did you find this out by being
down there for three days?" asked
"Hadn't been on the beach ten
minutes before I bumped up against
a lot of knowledge that will last me
for some time. And politics are go
ing to be warm before winter sets in
for good. Things are getting well
mixed, and by the time the little
udge conies back things will more
than hum. Between putting up big
stone buildings and keeping out of
the way of the fast street cars the
people don't have much time down
there to do business, and the town is
changing; a few years ago and a
fellow knew everyone. Now he don't
know anybodj, and it's dratted hard
to get acquainted even with the girls,
who hop along affecting the kauga
roo. I saw one of them out at the
beach on Sunday, and honestly my
heart ached for her until I learnod
that it was a fad. I wanted to be

I stood on the corner of Fort and
King streets one day watching for
an opportunity to cross wheu a
kindly-looking mau took hold of my
arm and escorted me to the other
side with the remark that provincial
gentlemen could not be too careful."
He also advised me not to stand in
the middle of the street when I
wanted to look at the roofs of the
tall buildings; I might get run over,

"Did you go into any o! the Coffee
Shops while you were down?" asked
the Early Riser.
"No! they don't iave 'em, They fix
things up and call 'em 'parlors' in
Honolulu," answered the Cheerful
Liar. "And they are all right as
as appearancas go. I went into one
and asked for coffee and sinkers,
and they brought me a decoction
and three bits of something yellow
enough for the angels. I balked on
the coffee ,and called one of the hired
men and complained to him. He
stuck his hands in his pockets and
said with a haughty air; 'The only
thing we can do is to try it over I
again. Then he ducked out and
sent a Chinese boy to take away the
postum. As the latter walked past
the counter I heard the first clerk
tell him to 'turn it upside down and
bring tho same thing back to him.'
And I guess he did it tasted like
the same stuff."
"He knew you were a farmer,"
said the Kicker, "and wanted to
have some fun at your expense."
"But he didn't know that I sold
my hog and that I was down there
to get experience. I got enough to
to last me ten years. Honolulu Is
a warm town in more ways than the
weather; in the latter respect it's a
regular three-dollar-a-day town if
you want to keep even, I had a
talk with some of the officials down
there about roads and schoolhouses
and learned that there was no money
with which to do anything. That
new schoolhouse at K;aau was built
at cost of 13,000 by Mr. McStocker,
expecting 10 do 'reimbursed by a
dampbool Legislature, which failed
to see the necessity for more schools.
Now Mr. McStocker is wondering if
the members of that distinguished
body expect him to emulate Car
ncgie or Rockefeller and establish
libraries and schools throughout tho
island. I found out, also, that the
money to pay for roadwork in Olua
during tho pas six months has nearly
all come from Mr. McStocker, who
expects some day to be repaid by
the Government. Evidently Mac
has a lot of faith, and if ho hai lu k
lie will get his money back. "-Hawaii

room. Tho meeting was called to
order by Matt. McCann, the chair
man of the Road Board. Judge Rich
ardson was chosen chairman, and
Judge Kahokuoluna secretary. James
H. Boyd, Superintendent of Public

"Ou receiving my commission I felt
it is a duty to go for myself and view
each District, and investigate the
wants of each District. Last month
made my tour of inspection. One
of my principal objects in Lahaina is
to look into the water system. The
present supply is dangerous to
the health of those residing here.The
water supply is paramount to othor
considerations, and it will be my en
deavor to construct the water works
in this town immediately. Ithiuk this
is a uecessity.for life is more import
ant than anything else."
After those timely remarks, Mr.
Boyd answered several questions,
and spoke briefly with reference to
the roads in Lahaina District, It is
his intention to improve the roads,
