fjj Wanted, a public park. Now, while ground is available, an
effort should be made to secure a public park and recreation
grounds for "Walluku. Wells Park would be an ideal site, in just
the right location, and if properly approached, the Wailuku Sugar
Company might possibly donate to their town the needed ground
A company could be incorporated to hold the property in trust
till such time as Wailuku is incorporated.when itcould,if desirable,
be deeded to the city trustees.
fj A committee on Maui have been appointed to collect
money for the McKinley memorial fund, and few will
refuse to contribute something, but the fact that no definite
plan for a memorial has been adopted will have a deter
rent effect. Naturally the people and the papers of Honolulu de
sire to see their town embellished with parks, pleasure grounds
and public buildings, but the proposition to take advantage of the
death of President McKinley to levy on all the Islands for that
purpose smacks a little of selfish thrift. However if the idea is
to be practical, let it be so, but instead of a play garden in Honolulu,
let the funds be devoted to the construction of a lighthouse for Ka
hului harbor, which would forever stand as a beacon and a memo
rial of the most practical and useful nature possible.
2 There will be some vitally important measures to come before
the congress of the United States which convenes on next Monday
morning.none of which will more materially affect the Islands than
the question of reciprocity. Next in importance are the cable and
canal bills, both of which will probably be acted on favorably, and
then comes the Chinese Exclusion Act which will almost certainly
pass. The Louisiana Sugar Planters and the refinery trust wilL
combat reciprocity, and the beet sugar interest should not favor
it, consequently the result cannot be confidently predicted at
present. As for local legislatkm.the needs of the Islands are great,
but with such a weak delegate as Wilcox to represent us, ltytlo may
JSS The hearts of the people have been with Admiral Schley
during the recent investigation, and the news that it has cost him
the savings of a life time will excite additional sympathy. The
assertion of his wife and children
of any money used in clearing his
the whole Schley family are cast in the heroic mold, and if ' .re
sponsible parties were to offer to raise a Schley fund as a Christ
mas gift to tne family, the amount of his losses would be reim
bursed in double measure before Christmas morning.
Q Economy is needful just now, but the Board of
rather over doing the thing by allowing 12,000 pounds
rot on the Kahului wharf for lack
leper settlement on Molokai, leaving the inmates of Kalaupapa to
go hungry or starve in the meantime. Proper transportation
should at once be provided, even if a steamer has to be bought or
chartered for that purpose. No dependence can be put in sailing
vessels for this purpose, and immediate steps shjuld be taken to
promptly ship the poi to the settlement.
fS No matter what the fate of

not soon be forgotten to those who are inclined to wrong American
citizens. Our association with the

with every true American to see that a swift and sure punish
ment is meted out for every wanton outrage upon the person or
property of Americans, wherever they may be,

SCHLEY IS BANKRUPT.
New York, November 15. A
special to the Times from Washing
ton says: The savings of forty-five
years of active service in the United
States Navy have been eaten up by
the expenses of inquiry by which
Admiral Schley hopes to clear his
record as a navy oiticer. Since the
final adjournment of tho public ses
sions of the court the Admiral has
been staying at the Arlington Hotel
attempting to extricate himself from
tho financial tangle caused by the
inquiry. He has ended with his ac
counts, and he finds that every cent
of the $20,000 which he had expected
to leave his family, in additio.i to all
tho prize money which he will get for
his part in the Spanish-American
war, has been expended on tho in
quiry, financially the Admiral is
worse off than ho was almost half a
century ago, when ho entered the
Naval Academy as a cadet.
Mrs. Schley insists that the money
has been well spent. Her children
a:reo with her. They say that the
clearing away of the cloud placed on
the Admiral's naval record will be of
more lasting satisfaction than any
thing money could buy. During the
inquiry witnesses were brought from
long distances, stenographers were
employed and clerks were kept busy
."I cannot say I wish I had it back,'
said Admiral Schley, "but I do wish
that I had the assurance now I that
had'a year ago that my wife would
never come to want."
