MRS. C. B. ROSEnTSOH, Bus. Mgr,
jQ To nr.o rai. cd in tlio United States, where each Utile town
supports its mvn brass band, thera is a natural feolirrg of prej
udice against tha idea o? a hand sujrportcil at tbo government
'expense, h'jtl such prejudices are dissipated by an analysis of the
results achieved by the visit of Bor der's-band to Maui Music is
fne of the prominent factors of modem civilization,- anil the music
of the band is a liberal education in the line of better and higher
life to the overworked and undor amused people of Maui. Now
Jliat we have had a taste of bund- music, the people of Maui will
expect' and must have the band oftener. 1 o begin with, four days
it too short a time, and we nvs.. hve Klrem for a week at a trine.
Again, we must have them at least twice a year, which would only
be one-twenty tilth of the year, and Maui pays more? than civs''
twenty tilth of the band tax.
The state mcM (ft the director
world is-about to be deluged wilR' an oVer production of gold,
which will wreck the world's credit, will provoke derisive smiles
in many quarters, but it is none the less true that an enormous
amount of gold is now being added to the world's eal'th'. Alaska,
South Africa and- improved methods of mining in the United
States are wddiitfg their quotas and such a thing as a glut in the
gold market may come true, just as there was an over production
f silver,- of diamonds later, and
However the only result of an alleged over production of gold will
be to increase the price of commodities generally, and to do away
tti? h- the demonetization of silver.
f5 Ijtifld' Commissforier Boyd is doiAg some good work for the Is
iiviid's in Washington, in the matter of reforesting the Islands. He
has secured a quanfify of seeds of the cork 6ak, with which experi
Aients will be made in various parts of the Islands. It takes at
least) twenty years for these trees to reach maturity, but they will
flourish and remain isxroductive for a century.- By the way,- ii
would not be a bad idea for Mr. Boyd iSo stop in California and
secure some seeds of the great redwood trees. There is every
reason to believe that the redwood would flourish here, and a for
est of them, once started would stand for the next thousand years
as a monument to tlie foresight olf their planters.-
j5 The arrival of the oil-fuel steamer "Enterprise" at Hilo-, nine
days from San Francisco, and the action of the Hilo Shipping Co.
m organizing a lecal coastwise line of vessels is one long step in
the new order of maratime affairs on the Islands. The action of
the American Shipping Co. in establishing a line of vessels be
tween Honolulu and Maui is another. In the end tie hand of the
Inter-Island stsara ship companies will be forced, and their only
means of holding trade between Honolulu aild other island ports
Trill be to put on lines of swift, commodious ifcland steamers, and
to lower passenger and freight rales.
