Tho opposition element may well fear tho visit of Governor
Dole to Wnshi'iffton, and yet that event is tv e best thing that could
happen to Hawaii just now. Tho people of the Islands are becom
ing, un measurably tired of the constant, clash and jungle of discord
ant elements in Honolulu, and aluiest any change would bo wel
comed. A crisis has arrived, and within the next month or so,
things are going to happen. Old conditions, old party lines, old
animosities are fast bc'iig forgntten.and the native Hawaiian, who
by the way form a large majority of our voting population, are
beginning to grasp the idea that a ne-v future confronts them. This
was an all important lesson for them to learn, and now if the haoles
will meet them half way and accord to them the respect and def
erence which is owing to them, a new party will arise which will
lead to n, safe and stable result. The "plovers which grow fat and
black breasted and then fiy away to Tahiti," to use a forceablc
Hawaiian metaphor, will bo plucked, and all classes will unite in
tho se'ection of good men for our local offices. Tho News "'tis
ever wot .ced steadily to this end.
?H Tho Hawaiian-Commercial & Sug:y Co.s plantation on Maui,
L in many, respects tho pivotal plantation on the Islands, and by
its degree of success may fairly be measured tho success of the
sugar indust ry on the Islands." There are several reasons for this,
the principal one be'ng that through the former ownership of the
SpreeUeLs', the stock of this plantation is better known and more
exU-nxive'y held in Kan Francisco than that of almost any other
plantation. Again, it presents a type of almost every condition
which exists on the oilier plantations. With II. P. La.dwm at its
head, and means to be perfected for supplying it with au abund
ance of fresh water, much is to be hoped for its future, and this
is encon; aging, for foreign capital will keep its eye steadily on the
financial steam-gauge of Puunene, and us ..oon as dividends be
gin to rise, Plut'.'s will untie his money bags.

j?! The Advertiser has at length put its foot in it, in tho matter
of very funny, but at the same time very exasperating cartoons.
While the liberty of the press should be untrammeled, so far
as honest criticism of tho acts
still in tho case in -point tho
pungency of the cartoon tended to prejudice the jury, although
the defense of tho advertiser was that the cartoon was not aimed
at the trial then being had, hut rather at a former trial, in wnich

A correspondent oi thu xlonolulu evening Uulletm scores a
good point in tho matter of cruelty
an exciting game, and one- which tho ponies themselves learn to
enjoy under favorable circumstances, still it must be admitted
that frcqueu'ly, as many have noticed, in tho excitement of the
game, some of tho ponies are absolutely tortured with harsh bits
and sharp spurs. Polo rules should bo adopted regulating the
use of bits and spurs, so that visitors to tho games will not bo
sickuied at the sight of masses of blood on tho sides, Hanks and
muzzles of the gallant little ponies.
It is a matter of common wonder to all intelligent and obser
vant visitors to Maui from abroad, that so little is being done to
develop the citrus industry here. This will not. remain true much
longer, for intelligent experimenting is in progress, and the day
is coming, and not far distant cither, when ship loads of oranges,
lemons and limes will leave Maui, both for the coast and the
oriental trade. ' . '
Gus says that it will not do to form too hast' 'a judgment
about the actions and doings of other people, because it is some
times dangerous and, as often as not, unjust. He says wo orteu
blame a man by outside appearances, when, if We knew all about
it and understood tho motives and reasons of his actions, we would
praise what we often hastily blame.
jo The reaction in the, depression of tho sugar industry on tho
Islands lias set in, andit is a safe prediction that the darkest hour
has passed. From this time on a constant improvement may
confidently be expected in the sugar market and in tho sugar in
dustry goiieialiv, though the Hush times of three years ago are
gone, never to return.
o o o
If small farming, including tho cultivation of citrus fruits,
bananas and pine-apr.los'on Maul does not pay now, it is simply
because there are none of those crops ready for shipment on the
steamers which are constantly leaving Kahului for the the coast.

iipii is a prisoner in the hands c f the
Boers. Hi.-t force of 1.2H0 men was
routed by General Dei'arey last Fri
day near Liehtenburg .and his four
guns were captured.
Lord Kitchener's first dinpatch to
the War Oltlee making announcement
of the disaster, was dated at Pretoria
Saturday. It. read as follows:
Pretoria, Saturday, March 8. I
greatly rey ret to have to send you
bad news of Methuen. He was mov
ing with 900 mounted men, under
Major Paris, and 300 infantry, four
Rtins und a pom-pom, from Vynburg
to Llchenberg, ami was to meet
Greenfell.with 1 , MOO mounted men, at
Rovierainsfontein today. Yesterday
morning early he was attacked by
Dtla rey's force, between Twe-Bosch
and Palniieteknill.The Boers charged
on three sides.
The scene of the fight in which
Methuen was captured is in the
southwestern part of the Transvaal,
in the vicinity of Mafeking. Methuen
had started from Wjaiburg in Orange
Free State and had nearly complet
ed his 100 mile march to Lichenburg
when he was attacked. The assault
was a complete surpriso nnd came
just before dawn, immediately after
the British had broken camp. The
Boers seem to have had everything
their own way from the beginning of
General Methuen was himself
wounded in the thieh- Three British
officers and thirty-eight men Were
killed. Five British officers and
seveniy-two men wore wounded. One
British officer and 200 men are said
to be missing, though there is a
doubt of this. All the British baggage
was captured. The disaster was an
nounced in the House of Lords today
by Lord Roberts and in the House of
Commons by the War Secretary,
BrodcricK, who read the details in
two telegrams from Lord Kitchener.
The Irish members of the Commons
greeted the news witn loud cheers.
They started a jubilation on the epot
till cries of "Shame! shame 1" from
the Government benches made them
think better of their outbreak. Then
there was a sudden silence.
Tie service members of the House,
retired army officers, regard the
news as exceedingly serious and gen
erally expl-ess the opinion that it will
now be necessary to send large rein
forcements to South Africa. Thev
think that Lord Methuen will be held
as a hostage for the safety of Com
mandant Kritzengcr and other Boer
leaders who are British prisoners.
South African stocks slumped
heavily in the excited curb dealings
as soon as the extra editions of the
afternoon papers carried the facts
through the streets.
Loxnox, Mar. IM. The War Secre
tary, Mr. Broflerick, announced in
the House of Commons todaj that he
understood that General Methuen,
who was captured, severely wound
ed, by General Belaroy, March 10,
had been released and was expected
to arrive at Klerksuorp, Southwest
ern Transvaal today. The General's
condition was favorable.
