ije Nobody but V. J. Lowrie and his God know what a burden
he has had t- carry at Spreckelsvilte since the change in the labor
system, although theNEWs man as news purveyor and formerly as
District Magistrate has a slight inking of the truth. Naturally
broad minded and progressive, Mr. Lowrie grasped the wonderful
latent possibilities of the plantation when ho assumed charge of
it, and the new mill, the big ditch and the tunneling of lao Valley
were parts of the scheme which he evolved to make Spreckelsville
the banner plantation of the Islands. To have accomplished these
things and kept the plantation going during the labor crisis was a
wonderful foat, and while there are many reasons to believe that
under the care of lion. II. P. Baldwin, there will be a decided im
provement in the management of the plantation, still the II. C. &
S. Co. owe a big debt of gratitude to V. J. Lowrie for what ho has
done and borne on their behalf,
is Although the Niearaguan canal bill passed the House by a
practically unanimous vote, yet the real tight on the bill is to
"come yet, and will be fought in the Senate. Senator Hanna who
is notoriously the henchman of the monied corporations, has al
ready displayed his teeth and claws. Back of the fight against
the 'canal is the transcontinental railroads, who are playing Panama
against Nicaragua, just as they would have played Nicaragua,
against Panama, if the latter route had been favored as the route.
Ai a matter of fact, the railroads do not want either canal built,
and as they have many friends in the senate, it is a matter of very
grave doubt whether any canal bill" will pass the senate during this
session. . '
f Now that the High Sheriff of the Islands has gone to work in
earnest to rid Honolulu of vagrants, the sheriff of Maui should at
once follow the work, so far as Maui is concerned. Special in-
. structions should be sent to each of his deputies and to the police
under them to round up every vagrant on Maui, and if the idlers
are njt willing to go to work at once, they should be put to work
by the government. Nothing leads to crime so readily as idle
ness, and the District Magistrates should bear tihis in mind every
time a clear case of vagrancy .is brought before them Such a
" Course persistently pursued vill react very favi. renly both on the
morals and material interests of Maui.

jf This week's mails brought to the desk of the News the
initial number of "The Spokesman," a new weekly paper to be
issupd 'MTy Sunday in Honolulu, and which will represent "trho
tenets of tim groat Democratic party of the Mainland." Just
which brand nf Dimvrncy is to be served forth is not stated, and
later issues ill state whether it'is to be Grover CIevelad goldbug,
anti annexation democracy or W. J. Bryan free- silver, anti-imperial
democracy. The paper has a faint -aroma of an extinct
Volcano. but is bngiir, newsy and readable-,. a-ud we heartily wish
. Bro. Timmons abundant success in his new enterprise.
jj$ Acoord'ngto the statements of Joseph P.Cooke, of Alexander
&Bildwr,: in Tuesday's. Bulletin, it appears that the- Nahiku
sett lees a -ami ul v alurmad concerning interference, with any.
water rig Ids. wliirh tliey.niay have in Nahiku District, and the
News is strongly inclined' to give full credence to Mr. Cooke's
statements.. It. goes without saying that the plan for bi-inging the
waste-waters of East Maiii to the fertile- plains of central Maui
should meet , -with enthusiastic
generally, and as this is to be doJie
rights ...speeu to the enterprise..
JSS It is with ext reme regret that the people of the Islands learn
of the illness of Delegate Robert Wilcox, not only oub of natural
sympathy for distress, but also because his. services, weak and
feeble as the.y are, are sorely needed in Congress by Hawaii, just
now. Tbro is no -doubt but that
large appropriations for the various needs of the Islands, such as a
sewage system fo.r Hanojulu-, improvements of harbors and sea
ports, light houses,, public buildings nnd other legitimate needs
but with.no. one-to, congress to plead for her, little willbe granted.
2 The Pacific cable is beginning-to assume tangible shape in
Congress, and so far as present
private cable, with a subsidy if possible, but if not possible to secure
a subsidy, then without because
will mak&f it a tempting -investment,' . As the matter will not be
delayed long in, Congress,' it is m6re than probable-that the Islands
will haye cable cominmnicatioa with 'the Coast in loss than a year
from now; at from thirty-fire to fifty cents a! wordi, and in- less
than two years more, Honolulu
Cecil Brown was'unq aestionably wtong in his' rulings- when
he refused to allow a count of the
holders meeting, and there is no doubtr but that Macfarlane will
win out, if he can hold his proxies together. But Brown's forces
!bave thirty day's more grace yet, and during that' time they may
possibly captnro a majority of the Macfarlane stock1;. In the mean-
me. the people shoiild understand that the fight fbr corjtrbf Will
in no way interfere with the slabiliTy 'of thb- bank wbicu is and
will remain one. of the solid institutions xt the- Islands.'

Wo reproduce from tho Advertiser
of lust. Friday, the following interest
ting article relative to tho mccm
achieved in tho matter of diveiVillvd
crops at Wahiawa Colony, Oalm.. The
object of the News in reproducing
these articles is to educate the pub
lic of Maui to begin to look Cor the
advent ot such enterprises- at avail
able spots on Maui, aud to. think of
the advisability of personally inter
esting themselves in suchienterprises.
Diversitied agriculture as dem
onstrated at tho Wahiawa settle
ment on this island, has passed the
experimental staires'and the 1400
acres controlled by tho association
are now in a thriving condition, the
product of temperate and torrid
zones being raised thereon with equal
facility J. H. Townseud, until recently
a member of the association and
now manager of the Townsend Lfider
taking Company, and who was one
of the founders of the samej ia an
swer to the argument that white mem
cannot work in the fields here, points
to the white awn of the colony who
have for tho past two years underta
ken the task of producing upon the
Wahiawa laud tho same products
that are now being imported into the
islands from California. He states,
however, that the climate of Wahiawa
is peculiarly adapted for white men
to wprk in, aud that it is far better
thau that of Southern California,
Arizona and Texas. The climate of
Wahiawa was what appealed to the
Southern Californians who form tho
association, and led them to do there
what they had done in their former
home. Furthermore,' it is a colony
where Americans do most of the la
bor, there beiug twenty-five families
resident of the association lands,
with a total population of eight-five

us to do our work iu, tho fields with

"Tnc quality of tho land is suitable
for the growing of oranges, lemons,
apripots,. prunes, pearr,, peachese,
rawlberries and figs. One fig tree-
which I planted twelve months &gy
which was then about one foot bigb.

figs. Peach trees which we-set out a
year ago each have n.or as many as
thirty peaches and of a pretty good
size, although only half grown. These
trees have had a better growth than
I have seeu h many parts of Southern
Califofhia.. All the varieties ofveire-
tables that can be grown in California
do especially well at Wahiawa. Cab
bages,beets, turnips, carrots, sweet-
a'n and.toinatoes thrive. We can beat
the world in the raising of tomatoes,
many of them growing as large as

have a rare rich taste,. maoy people

to those received from California.
Last year there wore ten acres given
over to tho raising of watermelons.
That crop realized $,WG0. They were
sold to dealers Lu Honolulu as they
lay on the ground.. This was realized
within fouri tuonths from the time we
planted them. Pineapplea .are now
being, largely grown. These realize
about &iD( an acre. There was some
difficulty last year about getting
waior for irrigation, and the- colo
nists had to depend upon rainl'ailiThis
year they have all the walstr they
need,and are getting it atafcout half
