Saturday, February :
ft Tho News is two years old
fruitful thoughts o! the future,
the pas:.. In its columns are recorded tho most phenomenal
two years, growth which Wailuku has ever experienced, and Avith
o"t boasting, it may fairly be claimed that much of the growth is
tho direct nd natural result of the establishment of a newspaper
in Wailaku. The generous support which the News has received
from tho Maui public has made it
first issue, and tirmly relying on a continuance of such support,
the assertion may truthfully be made that the Maci News is one
of the live and growing institutions of Maui.
5$ While there is not perhaps much hope- thai Senator H. P.
liuldwin could be induced to sacrifice his business interests for
tbo sake o,f accepting the position of governor of the Territory of
Hawaii, in the event of Dole's resignation,, still it is quite sure that
thero is nqt another man on the Islands who would so thoroughly
and fully represent every interest nud element on the Islands as
Mr.' Baldwin. The Hawaiians would unquestionably confide in him
for many reascns.tho haoles without reference to party lines would
ponfido in him, and the business men of the Islands would bo with
him to a man. We need a practical business man, and not a poli
tician for governor.
fjt At present thero does not appear to be any very serious dan
gei that the tariff on Cuban sugar will be reduced, and as was
foreshadowed by the News some months since, the beet sugar
men will prove the winning factors in the fight. That question
settled, the next most important question tor be solved by the
sugar planters of Hawaii is the question of labor. Just what will
develop in the matter of Chinese immigration cannot be predicted
with certainly as yet, but it is a tolerably safe guess that Chinese
labor will be excluded from tho United States and its territories,
in which case white labor seems to be the only available source of

5 The war in the Philippines,' if it ever could have been dignifi
ed, by the name of war, has ljtig since degenerated into a mere
police;' feerviro against, organized insurrection. Tho people of
America shudered when they read of tho atrocities which Spain
had been-pr'epetrating in the Philippines but it s a curious fact
tli'at the slaughter of Filipinos during the' past three years almost
equals the three centurjes of Spanish rule, Amefica'has.loarned,
as Spain toad to learn, thaX tWgood. Filipinos, as a general rule,
' are the dead ones.

strong reasonto believe that Nicaragua will be the'favored route.
Of coursfcUe' great railroad co'i-panies are playing ono canal

Drun has not yet received full pow
ers, which he must have in order to
sign the treaty. These will come with
in the next few days and then the
ceremony of signing will take place.
The oiftlook for effecting the treaty
Wis rather gloomy for a few days, in
view of tho announcement made by
the Danish Government that before
it could consent to dispose of the
Islands a plebiscitum must belield to
tie terminu the attitude of the inhab
itants Secretary Hay stated that
tho United States could have nothing
to do with such procedure.
This Government desired to ac
quire the islands and was prepared to
ake liberal terms, but it could oniv
negotiate with the Danish Govern
ment and not with its subjects. The
suggestion for a plebiscitum was ap
parently advanced to meet ti e views
of King Christian, the aged ruler of
Denmark, who dislike to see the cur
tailment of his territory,, and of cer
tain of his subjects who believed that
the inhabitants should bp consulted
before their laud was ceded to
As the islands are a drain udou the
Danish treasury, however, the Copen
hagen authorities recoguized the
necessity of selling them, It is un
derstood that a plebiscitum will be
held, but it will take place- after in
stead of before the signing of the
treaty, and the convention, in order
to bn effective must receive tho ap
proval of a majority of the inhabit
ants. As a treaty must receive the rati
fication of the United States Senate,
this Government,.it is sakl, can have
no objection to.tho submission of the
instrument to the Danish islands for
The Slat Department declines

treaty agreed upon. The orioe is
fsaid to be between $.,000,000- and
Minister Brun sought tj, induce
Secretary Hay to accept provisions
giving inhabitants of the islands the
same status as citizens of the United
States and tariff concessions. Both
of these matters are for Consrres to
determine, and, the treaty will simply
accord the inhabitants the same
rights. and privileges as were given
to Dorto. Ricans and' Filipinos. It
will contain no referenco to the tarilT
relations which shall, be maintained.
Secretary of S,tate Seward, thirty
live years ago signed a treaty with
Denmark for tho purchase of St.
John and St. TUt-mas. He agreed to
pay $7,500,00,0 for these two islands.
The inhabitants of the islands coi
sented to accept the United States
as their sovereign. The Senate re
fused to ratify the treaty. Denmark
became indignant over its rejection
and our friendly relations with that
nation were considerably- impaired.
In some quarters thero is a dispo
sition to believe that Denrjfwk has re
served to the inhabitants, of the is
lands the right, to -pass upou the
treaty in order th?(C sot) 'may be able
