f$ The only defense which tho friends of Judge Kalua now inter
poso to ward off the charges preferred by the News Is that Judge
Kalua was an ardent annexationist, and proved a poteut factor
in deciding annexation issues. This is quite true and is very much
to Judge Kalua's credit, but still it is no defense or excuse for
Judge Kalua's incompetency and misconduct on the bench. It is
notoriously true that Kalua was appointed to the judgeship of the
Second Circuit, in the first place, as a reward for political services
rendered, rather than on account of his fitness for the place. Some
thing had to be given to him, and for obvious reasons, the Hono
lulu authorities did not dare to take the risk of appointing him as
Sheriff of Maui. There was nothing left to do but to saddle him on
the long suffering people of Maui as circuit judge, and there is
nothing left to be done now but to appeal to the president to
relieve the people of Maui from a judge whose warmest friends do
not and cannot deny the charges formulated by the News.
fjf While the News is opposed to the restriction of suffrage along
racial lines, yet it has alwajs advocated an educational test, and
strongly favors the confining of that test to the English only. It
was the privilege of the writer, when a member of the California
Legislature in 1890-91, to support the passage of a measure to so
amend the constitution of the State of California, which amend
ment was afterwards ratified by the vote of the people of California,
fixing a rigid educational test as a qualification for suffrage. It
was a serious mistake to have failed to make such a proviso in the
organic act, and congress could do no better than to follow the prec
edent which it has recently established in the Philippines, and
amend our organio act so as to make the intelligent reading and
writing of the English language a voting test. Such an act on the
part of congress would go further to give the Islands a good and
stable government than anything else that could bo done.
ijji David Starr Jordan told a larger truth than can easily bo
grasped by the minds of men today, when he said that the Pacific
Ocean will bo the scene of a grander drama in the world's history
of advancement than ever was written of the Atlantic. The
human race, which was cradled in the orient, turned its face west
ward, and has daring all writtenhistory, moved forward with in
creasing impetus, physically and intellectually. Now, the last
chapter has begun to be written, and as humanity completes the
circle of the globe and approaches its birth place across the broad
expanse of the Pacific, the breadth and brilliancy of-its achieve
ments will be to the earlier centuries of this era, what Greece and
Rome meant to the pre historic Aryans,
33s Mr. E. F. Bishop of Honolulu protests against the "hoist" in
water rates in that city, and ''scores one" in a recent communion
tion published by the Advertiser. The same argument which he
uses is equally applicable to Wailuku. When the water works were
first established in Wailuku, there was a limited number of users,
and yet the receipts were far in excess of expenditures. Now,
that the number of rate payers has materially increased, one would
naturally expect a reduction in rates, but just the opposite has
taken place. True, the goverment needs money badly, but that
is no reason why water rate payers should have to carry mjve
than their fair share of the burden.
jSs The government physician at Wailuku has been, for some time
past, importuning the Board of Health at Honolulu for the appoint
ment of a sanitary inspector for Maui, and the News has seconded
the request to the best of its ability. This is a matter which should
no longer be delayed. The government physicians on Maui are
kept busy attending to their regular duties, and have no time, even
if they had the inclination, to serve without pay as sanitary- in
spectors. It is a shame that such an inspector has not been ap
pointed before now, and if it is not soon done, the citizens of Maui
should take the matter in hand and register a kick with the Board
pf Health wrhich" would be effective.
Hi? One hundred thousand tourists are expected in California
from the East this winter. Can the people of the Islands under
stand what the advent of even one thousand tourists in Hawaii nej
would mean? And that would be only one per cent of what Califor
nia expects. Efforts were required to divert the tourist travel to
California, and more strenuous efforts will be required to turn a
part of that tide to Hawaii. But it can and must bo done, and the
sooner the better.
5 The attention of all who are interested in the minor industries
of the Islands is invited to the article in this issue relative to the
-results accomplished on the Island of Hawaii by Mr. Frana Buch
oltz. There is no just reason why we cannot raise on Maui what
ever may be produced-on Hawaii, for each island has the same soil
and tillable elevations, and those owning available lands on Maui
should be encouraged to follow the example of Mr. Bucholtz.
S? The Semi-Weekly Star, avowedly a republican paper, urges
the democrats, in its last Friday's issue, to keep up their organiza
tion. Doubtless this advice was kindly meant, but to what pur
pose? Has the Star lost sight of the suggestion not long since
. enunciated editorially by that paper, that a coalition of the best
elements on the Islands, regardless of politics, might prove benefi
t ciiil to all concerned?

The News, which has unremittingly
encouraeed the cultivation of vr po
tables on Maui reproduces the fol
lowing article from lust Friday's Ad
vertiser, to illustrate what may be
done on Muni, where the climate is
practically an varied as that on
Franz Bucholtz, the well known
farmer who.'e plantation at Kona,
Hawaii, is the pti1o of the IsKinds,
is in the city, and made an extended
call at the o.Tices of the agricultural
experiment station and commissioner
of agriculture yesterday. He talked
enthusiastically of the success of
small farming on a large scale, and
is convinced ttatnot only can almost
any crops be successfully cultivated
in the Tslands, but at a profit as well.
He has but lately formed this opinion
of the success of small farming as a
financial venture, but his farm in
Kona is a growing example of agri
cultural success in Hawaii. The
chief difficulty which confronts the
small farmer in Hawaii, is the ex
pense of marketing his crop, and
this is attributed by Mr. Bucholtz to
the middlemen hi Honolulu, as well
as to exorbitant freight charges.
Since his visit to Honolulu this time,
Mr. Bucholtz has been more success
ful, and stated yesterday that ho has
secured the services of a middleman
who has handled the products of his
farm; which would allow him some
"The Honolulu middleman wants
to get rich all at once," said Mr.
Bucholtz yesterday. "They are not
satisfied with a profit of 20 per cent,
but it must be 200 per cent. Then
they fear the coming of home-grown
products to this market. It is liable
to reduce the cost to the consumer,
and that means smaller profit for
middle man again., The freight rates,
too, are high, but I have made ar
rangements for the handling of some
of the produce in Honolulu now,
and it will pay a small profit. As it
is, I raise only Ihings for my own
use; and as I am by myself, it doesn't
take much to supply the demand.
I have about 270 acres, and 400 more
"Everything grows well in our dis
trict, and there appears to be no
limit to the crop that can be raised.
Cabbage, celery and cauliflower can
be picked all the year around. The
celery is of the finest quality. It may
remain in the ground a year or more,
and that doesn't appear to affect its
quality in the slightest. Cabbage,
the same way; it may be planted in
summer, winter, fall or spring and
grows to enormous size two feet in
diameter, and has the quality to rat-
toon. Potatoes, the same way; I
have planted them four times in suc
cession on the same piece of ground,
and they cost but half a cent a pound.
"Artichokes, parsley, parsnips,
carrots and red beets grow the year
round, and lima beans have to be
gathered every week. Cuoumbers,
turnips and tomatoes are all grow
ing on my farm, and are doing finely.
The melon was first attacked by the
melon fly, but it doesn't grow well
at my elevation. Peas do not pay,
though they grow readily. However,
they must be picked right away, as
they ripen too quickly, sometimes in
"Some more of the things that
may be grown here? I guess pretty
near everything that grows any
where, can be successfully grown hi
Kona. Besides the things I have
mentioned, I have growing, corn,
onions, radishes, 'leeks, eggplants,
lettuce, peppers, squashes, pump
kins, strawberries, raspberries,
gooseberries, currants, apples, pears,
almonds, walnuts," olives prunes,
cherries, peaches, apricots, oranges,
limes, alligator pears, grapes, figi,
pineapples, dill, lavender, ma rjoram,
sage, thyme, peppermint, mangoes,
papaias, wheat, barley, corn, alfalfa,
oats, blue grass, in fact, every thing
can be grown there, and is growing
on my farm now.
"Onions grow to a thickness of three
or four inches, and are of the finest
quality, yet I have been offered but a
cent and a half to two cents a pound
here in Honolulu, and they , sell for
five and six cents. Eggs I was offer
ed but nineteen cents a dozen for
one shipment I made, and two dozen
were broken en route. Other pro
duce I have 6hipped to Honolulu,
and the middle man says he could not
sell it. Now my arrangements are
with a man who says he will give
away the stuff if compelled to, just
to make the people see what can be
raised here. . f don't see why small
farming should not pav. in Hawaii.
and some day the middlemen will be
sorry that they treated us as has
