fj? I we iiru to have any races on. Maui-this. year ib is about time
tlial the Maui Racing Association should, begin ro mov.e in the
matter. Racing on Maui has practically ben, killed by offering
microscopic purses cud confining the entries to Maui bred horses.
All this should be chungod. Suppos foE instance thatj $1200
should be hung up for purges for the July races, divided as fol
lows;. $500 for a trotting race, best two in three, free for all; 1300
far Euuiisg race, IhEeeiu live, free for all; H0Q running mile dash
free for all;. lOOtrotting and pacing, free for.-all flOO running
mile dash for L'oui bred nr.d $1C0 trotting and pacing for Maui
bred, with small purses or trophies for minor events. Such a
program would bring nil the best horses n the Islands and pos
sibly one or two from the Coast, and the Mimi people would be
tffeied rpcirg lhat Ibcy would come and pay to see, and by inter
spersing minor events, two good days of racing; could be had.
From '400 toSDOO, if not more, would be returned to the Associa
tion as entrance fees,, which leaves from 600 to $800, to be provided
for. One-third of this is now on hand,, and with two days' racing,
the ad m'ssion tickets and privileges would mate up the balance.
It will go, if the Association hits the nerve and energy to under
2 From present indications, it may be surmised thit the Home
Rulers have the situation well in hand. If it be true,. as his friends
now claim, that Priuco Cupid is
cox,, in order to enroll under his
large number of the more intelligent Hawaiians, who allowed them
selves, to be led "over the pali"
democrats at tne last election,, win iojjow the leadership of frince
Cupid into the Home Rule ranks. This will give the Home Rulers
plenty c.f excellent material to draw from iu making their legislative
nominations, thus excluding the
led to foist upon the people two years ago. In the meantime the
Honolulu republican press will likely, in the future ;is in the past,
continue their vindictive and debilitating war upon each other,
thus leaving the Home Rulers to
out their awn plans.
2t The real work which the United States has; to do in the Philip
pines has just.now begun. It was merely a matter of expensive
detail to thrash the half savage Filipinos into submission, and it
will be an easy matter to keep them so. But the real task of the
United Sates will be to educate
the elementary principles of higher civilization and self govern
ment and to unify them into a Filipino nation. This can and will
be done, but it will not be the work of one, perhaps not of two
generations. But if the work of
plane as it has, be patiently persevered in, one century will see
the Philippines one of the most
tries on earth.
There is a duty which the
side of our commuuily, and which
and that is to unite for the promotion of social evening gatherings
We are a young coma: unity in one
ed wii h i i t h other ytt, in a social way. The young men of Wailuku
are sometimes contemned for seeking risque methods of relaxation,
but what can thc-y do? There is practically no social side to our
village life, and the ladies, they only, have it in their hands to
organise a s eries ;f evening socials, ranging from blind'man's buff
co pink teas, which would bring together the best element of Wai
luku society. Please do, ladies.
With the indorsement of Gov. Doje by President Roosevelt
the path is cleared for harmonious action by the people of the
territory; and all would be harmonious, if the Honolulu press would
lead the wny. The Advertiser,
must change its vindictive- tone, Yard'.ey's bitter and stinging
political cartoons should be suppressed, Walter Smith's editorials
should llow with milk aud honey, opposition men and. their opinions
should bo treated with the respect due them, and a coalition of
the bet haole and Hawaiian element should be sedulously foster
ed. All of this can and should be
The News predicted several

be protected, aud the last advices
firm the glad news. It required
this, because no one man. not
Americans, against their own interests. And if President Rooseve!
does not learn and profit by the
plunge both himself and the republican party into hopeless de
feat at the next geuor.il election.
The question of what caused
the past two years and why it should continue togrowisfreejuent
ly asked. The answer is easy. To begin with, there is not a more
desirable town site on the Islands, owing to its high and healthful
location, its cool, bulmy air, and its abundant supply of fresh,
mountain water. Then, there were a number and are still some
dormant business openings to be developed.' Again, Wailuku is
by virtue of its location the central or key town of Maui. Finally,
the county seat will bo located, at Wailuku. It must grow more
yet, and it will. '

Wild Horses In Russia.
In the steppes of Russia, where
wolves abound and the horses lead a
wild life and have to shift for them
selves, it is said that a young colt will
some times be made so furious by the
persecutions of his enemies that he
will rush wildlv among a drove of
wolves and bite and strike until l.c
has slausntered a large number of
them. These horses arc exceptionally
fierce, rendered so, it is supposed, by
the extreme variations in the climate
At one time of the year they suffer
from the intense- beat of a tropical
sun and at another they live among
raging snowstorms a,n,d extreme cold.
Fish Bites In Submarine Cables
Interference with submarine cable
service due to fish bites occurs from
lime to time in shallow water, but
lines in deep water have not hither
to suffered from this cause. An Eng
lish telegraph company, however,
now reports lhat in repairing a fault
iu one of their cables at a depth of 330
fathoms the section removed was
found to contain a tooth firmly fixed
in the core at the cable, although the
core was piotected by the usual
sheathing of thick iron wires and in-
tulatins material. An examination
of the tooth showed it to be from
some species of shark.
Dread of the "Foreign Devil.
A hiyh premium seems to be placed
upon the foreigner's power in the
Chinese courts, at least in a certain
country in Eastern Shantung. A cer
tain man had a lawsuit which seems
to have gone against him in spite of
all ordinary measures. He suddenly
left for Chefoo, but soon returned
and announced to his adversary that
he has bought a foreign title. To
prove the genuineness of his claim in
official rank, be donned a suit of
foreign clothes and flourished a cane.
This was enough. Tho opposing
parties sued for peace and gave up

It is believed the Transvaalers will
everywhere accept the terms, as
they are in no way anxious for a win

likely to occur will be, it is thought ,
with the Orange Free Staters, many
of whom are expected to prove re

will be ao cessation of hostilities.
