It is impossible for a local
matter of building up the town where it is located. It can do
snitch.,, as is admittedly demonstrated during the past two years, of
th.e bi story v VV'iiluku. But there in a point where the limit of
aowspaper work ends,, and at that poiiitt the citizens of the town
; Uiiist take hold and carry on th work. But the newspaper is the best
Indication of whether the citizens of a town tiro progressive or not.
Take a newspaper bristling with live ads of locjil merchants, and
; wne may feel sure that the town supporting it has a, bright future.
But,. i9 in Wailuku, where three of the leading dry gxds and
grocery ltouses. lvive not even enterprise enough to advertise in
the local paper, it s a safe bet that either new and enterprising
Ui'ms will locate here and drive out the nipssbacks, or clso the
to vvr. will die oi dry rot.
The News publisl.es a communication this vcok, concerning
.io macadamising of the strer-ts of Wailuku. all the more willingly,
because it is written by a member of the Waiiuku District road
; board, who knows whereof he spuaks. However the News stated
i that an ''appropriation," not "funds" are available. Possibly there
' may bj only two prison laborers, av.iilab.le far road work, but itl .s
r ire when, one cannot look up and down our streets and see at
i lua.it Uvuuv thre of the striped suit gentry riding or driving, or
' sauntering leisurely along with sacks and grass knives. As for
f coming forward wit':, hard cash sufficient for the work, lelyiug on
i . the legislature for. reimbursement, we cannot resist the temptation
' of cordially inviting onr correspondent to step into the breach, and
1 thus win the eternal gratitude of Wailukans.
: The groat railroads of America, feeling the stress of Pres
ident Kocsevult's enforcement of the interstate laws, which will
f cost these companies the loss of millions of dollars, are openly
threatening that Roosevelt shall not succeed himself as president,
f in 15.104. 1 rue. money is a great power in the United States, but
' . Morgan and the other magnates will have another factor to deal
with, if they attempt to enforce lioosevelt's retirement. The rank
and tile of American voters are readers and thinkers, and when
they come to v.nderstand that the money powers are arrayed
against the president, there will come a ground swell which will
carry Koosevelt into the presidential chair again with the banner
majority ever tendered to a presidential candidate.
fs!? It is evident from x'ocent dispatches that Russia and France
' ure on the brinn of a war with Japan end England, and the attitude
' of the United States and Germany are all important factors in
determining whether or not the first gun shall be tired. Were
America and Germany in the mood to observe neutrality, war
would be begun at once, but neither of these countries are willing
to tie their hands at the request of Russia, Such a war will doubt
! less come soon, for neither Russia or Japan care to wait much
longer, but when it does como, England, Germany and the United
: states will be lined up to resist Muscovite aggresion, and Russia
; will be effectually bottled.
The citizens of Wailuku do
lever united efforts would prove in enforcing municipal improve
ments, such as grading and macadamizing our streets, building a
new court-houso and school house, securiug an industrial high
school, aud other improvements sorely needed in Wailuku. But
the spirit of uniting for the purpose of accomplishing something
in this direction is abroad in the air, and it is believed that some
thing will be "doing" along these lines in Wailuku in the limni
jij As the News had occasion to assert editorially some time
since, Roosevelt will find himself up against a stone wall, if ho at
tempts to enforce his Cuban policy against the will of tho people
of the United States. At heart, the people are all right, and no
sophistry regarding our tender duty to Cuba will blind thein to
tho real interests of the sugar men of the United States, including
the Hawaiian Islands. All will end well.
'?& 1 11 disinterested observer, it seems as if the democrats and
home rulers of Honolulu have joined hands ugainst the republicans
in 1 he election of a new legislator to succeed Giliillan. When the
light begins on Maui, the News hopes to see tho republicans, dem
ocrats and Itome rulers all join hands and unite in an effort to send
the best men available to the legislature. -

Tho News some time since agitated the question of having tho
liiwaiiau Hand visited Maui, and they will be here next week",
'. a 1 irgj ami varied assortment of hot and cold air. Next will
came the dray, store, to bo followed soou by the photograph gallery
.,-rid the bakery. .Is it too much to expect that the macadamized
L streets will come, by and by?

A Roosevelt Story.
New York Sun; "If stories about
Roosevelt are in frder I may nar
rate a little domestic incident," said
a political friend of the President.
"One evening at dinner Mr. oud Mrs.
Roosevelt were disoussing an old pro
gram which she bad preserved, and
both referred to the entertainment,
saying how much they had enjoyed
it at the time. The youngest child
listened, closely, and at length burst
forth in genuine grief and disappoint
ment. " 'Why didn't you take me?'
" 'Hush, mv der,'said paterfamil
ias. That was before your mother and
I were married.'
They t nought no more of the inci
dent. A few days iator the tot was
telling. some widely improbable tale
to the eldest. Mr. Roosevelt, who
overheard the weird narrative, de
" ' A' hen did you do all that?'
' 'Oh, that was before you and
mamma were married,' replied the
tot with the utmost gravity,"
Points About a Good Horse.
There arc some points which are
valuable in horses of every descrip
tion. The bead should be proportion
ately large and well set on. The
lower jawbones should be sufficiently
far apart to enable the head to form
an angle with the neck, which gives
free motion and graceful carriage
and prevents it bearing too heavily
on the hand. The eye should belartfe,
a little prominent and the eyelid fine
and thin. The ear should be small
erect and quick, in motioe. The" lop
ear indicates dullness and stubborn
ness. lien too fac back, there is a
disposition to mischief.
John Wanamaker say: A newspa
per whose columns overflow with ad
vertisements of business has more
influence in attracting attention to
buildim; up a town than any other
agency that can be employed. People
go where there is an enterprising
community. No power on earth is so
strong to buiid up a town as a paper
well patronized, and its power should
be appreciated. The man who over
looks his town paper injures himself
by injuring his town and townsmen.
An Eastern manufacturer of bicy
cles, being compelled to go away on
a business li id about the time an
interesting domestic event was ex
pected, left orders for the nurse to

following formula; If a boy, ''Gentle
man's safely arrived." If a yiri,
"Lady's safely arrived. The father's
state of mind may be imagined wren,
a few days later, he received a lele
gram containing the one word, ''Tan
dem." Strength of bono structure is said
to be allied to honesty and reliability
