Tho a aront lull in the growth of Wailuku caused by the ad
vent of the winter storms, combined with, tho drop in the price of
sugar av.u tho continuous wails of calamity howlers, is causing
''goose-llcsh,, in the hearts of some, who are simply throwing
away good fortune by their hesitancy. Maui is all right and Wai
luku is all right. New avenues of trade and business in our midst
are lying untravelled and unexploitedi but this condition will not
last much longer. New nieii have all eady come,- and others are
coming. If at least half a dozen new lines of business are not i
opened up in Wailuku within the next year, it will not be because
the opportunities are not lying here dormant. Wailuku will keep
op growing, because it simply canirot help it.
iigg Wilcox, like water,- is' first seeking his own level. The glam
our which surrounded the advent of the Hawaiians into American
politics, aDd the sentiments whrch it aroused, that f jr lack of a
better name might be called pettigr'eTfifcy are fast fading, and the
result of .sending WTiluox to congress is nowhere more appreciated
than in the minds of the hard-headed and practical men- who form
the bulk of the congress of the United States. The president and
Congress ire no longer blind to the anomalous conditions which
hate mariced our advent into the Union, and if the right influences
could be brought to bear, botb local and national legislation could
be had which would bring our besfc men- to the front. Tne News
stands pledged to this line ft action. .
fS'. The movement on the part of the United States Agricultural
department to supply ever forty new varieties of seed pototoes to
Maui is a good one, and all the mpre creditable because the depart
ment in Honolulu is without funds.Mr. Sedgwick, who is in personal
charge of the enterprise, came over practically without funds but
full of grit and enthusiasm. It is now up to the people of Maui to
take hold of the enterprise and push it through. He has over six
hundred pounds of potatoes, and says that he is going to remain
qn Maui till those potatoes are all planted. There no doubt but
that the people of Maui will gladly finance the enterprise.
Uji The aims and ambitions of woman, since the days of our
grandmothers, has undergone a marked change, and the tailor
made woman of today is, resolutely chewing tooth-picks and forc
ing herself into the business, ways, of men.so as to seriously hamp
er many men in their efforts to secure employment by which thej
can support their families. There seems to be an effort on their
part to nullify God's decree that the best and noblest office of
womanhood is that of motherhood, aud it may perhaps be neces
sary to invoke the strong arm of the law to repress young women
who are trying to be young men.
We are reminded by a clever and obliging correspondent, in
reply to the editorial demand last week for standard time, that by
Act of Congress standard time for the Hawaiian Island has been
established; to wit, 10 hrs. 30 min. west of Greenwich, or 2 hrs. 80
mm. west of standard San Francisco time, on the Meridian of
157 SO', W. Longitude. We had forgotten this, if we ever knew
tt, but the main point is to. induce the use of the same clock and
watch time for all the Islands. Farther suggestions from our
correspondent, as to the best method of accomplishing this
would be welcomed.
It is about time that the Maui Racing Association, should
wake up, if we are to, have any
regular trotting and running races, games of polo and base ball, as
well as foot racing and other athletic sports could bo interspersed,
to make a full program. Some complain that there are no gooa
horses on Maui, and that consequently there can be no sport. The
real trouble is not that however.but it is the small purses that has
practically killed racing on Maui. Hang up big purses, bar none,
and the racing programs will fill fast enough, '
S Much has been said concerning the "transition period" on the
Islands, but the broader phases
ploited. As a matter of fact a period of transition has existed here
since the days of Kamehameha I., and never was more pungently
at work than at present. It is the yeast of transition that is the
life of the Islands, and when that ceases to work, the Islands will
die. Changes in the future are as certain and frequent as those in
the past, and it is for strong hands and brave hearts to mould
these changes for the better,
T he press of Maui deemed
coming against the judiciary of
registered. But it seems that
fatorks in tho judiciary, as well as
judge in Honolulu smarting under a false sense of offended dignity
nearly wrecked a sugar plantation, and another gravely anuounced
from the bench that at the age of thirteen he could not have been
trusted not to steal a ten dollar
There is only one meaning to
ant labor. On the Islands, as elsewhere, the supply rather than
the quality of labor is tho main thing, and the only method for
securing cheap labor is by providing an abundance of labor. He
they Viscayans, Porto Ricans, Japanese, Chinese or whatever else,
the proposition which steadily faces the planters is to reach out
aud get them here, ,

Practically all the tooth powders
of commerce have the Fame base
prepared chalk. This is mixed with
some saponaceous compound, flavor
ed a little, put up in an attractive
bottle or jar and, behold, a tooth
powder costing from 15 to 50 cents
per vessel, according to the place
you buy it and the celebrity of the
name on the label.
For 15 cents enough tnoth powder
to last a family a year can be put
together. Buy the chalk in bulk and
with it some ground castile soap,
which all druggists sell. Put them
together in the proportion of one-
eighth soap to seven-eighths chalU,
mix well and fill any 'and all the
empty tooth powder jars or bottles
that you may have around. If flavor
ing is liked, it is easy to add a little
wintergrceu or peppermint.
So with the various antiseptic aha
disinfecting solutions that attractive
ly bottled and judiciously advertised,
coax pennies unnecessarily ou t of our
purses. There is no better cleanser
and general sweetener than a satu
rated solution of bicarbonate of soda.
Fill a pint or a quart bottle, if you
want to, with clear water and add
bicarbonate of soda got from the
druggist, not the grocer; until the
liquid will take up no more. Keep
this on your toilet shelf and use it as
a mouth wash. etc.
When it comes to an antiseptic
fluid, any surgeon will tell you that
there is practically nothing m mate

American Tea Crowing.
The, Secretary of Agriculture,
speaking of the raising of tea in this
country, recently said: "We are
now succeeding admirably in the pro"
duction of tea in the United States
It is ouly a question of a short time
when we will be ablo to raise all the
tea demanded for, use iu this country.
The two tons of tea grown at Sum-
merville, S. C, last year, so well
satisfied the New York investors in
terested in the industry, that they
immediately, formed a syndicate aud
bought 6,000 acres of land In that
State, upon which tea will be growu.
"This department last year f-ent
tea plants to every gulf State in the
Union, from the Carolinas to Califor
nia,for experimental raising. We have
just heard from South Carolina that
imported machiuery iu use there is
able to make green tea from the
black product in one hour. We do
not yet manufacture such machinery
in this country, but we will get to
"There U no question concerning
the availability of labor when we get
to growing our tea ou a largo scale.
There is any number of young people
who will seek employment as pickers
of the tea leaves, as wages will be
good. We are now importing plants
from China, Ceylon and Japan, and
we propose raising the highest grade
of the product iu this country."
Five Hundred Millions for a
The Russian people are asking
themselves: How much is tho great
Siberian railroad go'.ug to cost before
it is completed? V.'hen the work
was begun, about a decade ago, it was
roughly estimated that 350,000,000
rubles would pay the whole cost. It
is admitted, that already there has
been spent 420,000,000 rubles more
than this original estimate, and it is
probable that before the line can be
put iu working order throughout its
entire length, the total cost will have
grown to 1,000 000,000 rubles, or,
rou;hlv speaking, recking the ruble
at 50 cents, to 50O,O0O,0UO, a sum al
most three times as great as the
original estimate of tho cost of the
road. This sum is so enormous that
it will take a large amount of busi
ness to return any profit whatever
to the Government, though we pre
sume that Russia looks upon this
road as a matter of strategic iin
portance for certainly as a business
proposition, without Government aid,
such a road would noi have been at
tempted. Read The MAUI NEWS.
Oppose Panama Canal.
New York, March 3. A special
to tho Sun from Washington says:
At a meeting of thn Senate aub-eom

tho proposition of the Panama Caiml
Com;anv to sell its rights and pro
perties to .'.he United States for f 10.

committee, as is well known, favor
the Nicaragua route, but the advo
cates of the Panama route, under
the lead of H anna, will continue tho
fight in the committee and in the
Senate, where there is undoubtedly
a majority in favor of the Panama
route, if this is found to be. feasible
New York, March 3. A cabte to
the Sun from Colon says: According
to advices received here from Paris,
an Anglo-French syndicate has offer
ed to pay 4,000,000,000 francs (twice
the American offer) for the Panama
canal. It is added that though it is
the purpose of the syndicate to com
plete the canal with English money
principally, the enterprise will rc
main a French one.
Sugar Bounties to be Abolished
Washington, March 3. A cable
gram received in Washington to-night
signed "Lubbock," the English re
presentative at the sugar convention
at Brussels, conveys the- information
that the sugar conference reached
an agreement at to-night's session,
which agreement is to be signed on
Wednesday. The conference has a
greed that on September 1st all
sugar boundies are to be abolished
and after that date countervailing
duties shall be levied on sugar prod
