l54 It is a duty winch every citizen on Maui owes to support home
institutions and in no matter is this more true than so far as it
relates to our home bank. The News strongly urged the establish
ment of a bank at Wailuku, and its forecast proved correct both
as to the need and to the financial success of the bank. The First
National Bank of Wailuku is a success financially and the citizens of
Maui who have money to deposit should open an account with the
Wailuku bank rather than with Honolulu banks. A bill, is to be
intrjduced in congress in the near future, by Representative Mc
Clcary of Minnesota to authorize national banks in small towns to
lend a portion of their resources on real estate securities.and there
is no particular reason to doubt that such a bill will pass. But
whether it does pass or not, the duty of the citizens of Maui t
support and strengthen our local bank by placing their deposits
with it is clear and plain.
2 The anti saloon element in Honolulu is making a vigorous ef
fort to suppress drunkenness, and this is a creditable movement,
but. as usual most of the speakers begin at the wrong end of the
fight and end nowhere. Drunkenness, and even the use of alcohol
at all should confined strictly to medicinal purposes, but this can
never be done bj making a tight against the saloon, as an institu
tion. If the majority favored prohibition, restrictive laws could be
made so severe that dronkenness.or any use of alcoholic beverage
would become very rare. B.ut unfortunately the anti-saloon ele
ment is a small minority, and their first work is to win a majority
of the men, women and children, especially the latter, to their side.
Once the prohibition sentiment is in the majority, the rest of the
work will prove easy.
The latent possibilities of Maui,, outside of its enormous sugar
yield, are as vast as they are varied, and time,, energy and brains
are all that are necessary to develop them. The object lesson con
veyed by the box of citrons raised by V. F. Pogue of Nahiku Jon
trees only three and a half years old, and sent to the News is but
one sample of what Maui, can do in the way of yielding money
making products. No one could inspect those citrons without ad
mitting that a hundred acres of such fruit properly preserved
'vVolffd yifcla the owner a priucely revenue every year. Nahiku is
but one place and citrons one product oat of many places and pro
ducts which will one day be the corner stones of Maui's prosperity,
fj The News publishes this week a. synopsis of the county
Government bill introduced in congress by Delegate Wilcox. The
doubt is gravely expressed by many that congress will interfere
at all in matter of county government for the Islands, tfut the
News regards the matter as quite likely, owing to the fact that
there was a failure to establish a county government during the
last session of the legislature The proposed bill, with necessary
amendments and additions, seems all right, but Maui will very
reluctantly accept the name of Liliuokalani County.
Although wireless telegraphy
as a permanent means of inter-island communication, yet it must
bo borne in mind that the failure

permanent wireless system of telegraphy between the Islands is a
certainly in the near future. Such a system with a moderate
schedule of charges should prove a good investment eventually.
$ Complaiuts are still being made by the residents of Wail iku
that there is no available place
accumulation of trash, filth and
course the sheriff is helpless in
householders dig holes on their
retuse in these holes, Tho attention of the Board of Health in
Honolulu is earnestly invited to this matter.
jy The prophesied time when
-ploughshare has about arrived, but without bringing the expected
.era of peace. In other words, the invention of powder and the im
provements in fire arms has relegated the sword, as a weapon of
.offense and defence, to the obscurity of the stone war club, and in
the future it will be hoard of and seen only in poetry and in secret
fH Bishop Willis is unquestionably in the right, from a legal
point of view, in assuming full control of the services at the Angli
can cathedral, but his unwisdom in meeting the crisis on handas
he did is painfully marked. No one man is in position to do so
much harm to the Anglican Church on the Islands as is Bishop
Willis, and he seems to be inclined to do his best in this direction.
It is natural that Cuba should try to get all the good things it
.can from congress, and some super-sentimental statesmen favor
her claims; but there is a lino which may not ho crossed and con
gross is now skating dangerously near the post on which the
. warning signal is nailed.
jg It seems nothing, Jos than blind and reasonless stupidity
which could possibly lead any one to advocate a leper jiolony on
the Islands under the control of the .United States Government, at
which;iepers other thaatttiose who ace .nmUwb of ih islands
can be immured
