J5 Says tho Advertiser in a recent editorial; "The responsible
people of nil voting classes here must make up their minds to take
an active.aud united part in politics from this time on." Rend that
over once more, and theu.read this from a recent l,lik Tribune
editorial; "It is time now to bury the hatchet and pull together
for the good of Hawaii." While the News is not conceited enough
to claim credit for having prompted either of the above editorial
utterances, still they are so in line with what the News has con
stantly ured that, their importance becomes marked. Now if the
better people of the Islands, independent of, national political lines,
will be led by the advice of these papers, above given, and frown
down all factional lights of either a political or racial nature, we
can have a legislature and all else we need or want, of the highest
and best class and quality. But the newspapers must stop light
ing each other, in the meantime.
JK "The Maui News is having a terrible time these, chays telling
what the Honolulu press ouht to do. Judging from, he fizzle
the News made of it in the lastelection with its "good govern m,ent"
ticket, that paper is going far afield to look for trouble." Bulletin.
There is a sharp sting in the above, but it is the self inflicted sting
of the wounded scorpion, and leaves the News scathless. Tbis
paper has steadily advocated the uniting of the best elements in
local politics, and while the press of Honolulu was engaged in
factional hair pulling twoyears ago a simian legislature was elected.
Now, the mass of the people of the Islands are beginning to take
hold of the idea of uniting for the purpose of selecting good men,
and they will succeed in this, if not frustrated by factional fights
in the republican party in Honolulu, led principly by the Honolulu
? There, is not a man qn the Islands, who feels an active inter
est in our future, that should not give his time and money, if called
pn, to. further to the utmost the matter of co-operating with Com
missioner Barrett of the World's Fair at St. Louis, in his efforts to
secure a creditable display of Hawaiian industries and resources.
Every dollar intelligently spent in this direction will return to us
a hundred fold. Tourists will be attracted here, small farmers and
manufacturers will come here with their brains, and energy, and
the Islands will spring forward on a new career, of prosperity that
pur sleepy Rip Van Winkles little dream of .
The Maui Athletic Association is to be sincerely congratulated
pn its unqualified success in establishing polo and base ball on a
solid footing, on Maui. A four team league of base ball and two
good polo teams are the results of the energy displayed by the
association, and the people of Maui should show their appreciation
of these efforts by a liberal and generous support and encourage
ment of the games. Now let the Maui Racing Association wake up
and follow suit, with a good racing program so that plenty of good
and clean sport will be provided, and the people will gladly help
the thing along,
O 9 ,
The kamaainas of Hawaii have become so set and fixed in
their ways of thinking, that it will absolutely require the advent
pf new people here to introduce small farming and the develop
ment of minor industries. Opportunities for such things are rich
and varied, and these opportunities will be taken advantage of and
developed, to the great material benefit of the people of the Islands,
as soon as Jared Smith and his coadjutors can pave the way for
them. The work is being slowly and surely done, and the time is
not far away when the new people will be here.
S Although the proposed withdrawal of Russia from Manchuria,
gives promise on its face, of a peaceful solution of the Chinese
puzzle, yet the News contends, as it lias contended from the first,
that Russia will never withdraw from Manchuria., With Franco as
an ally, fomenting trouble in Southern China, and successful reb
ellion in full swing.Russia can easily foresee that within a year the
leading nations will be again compelled to make armed intervention
in China, and Russia wiUhaveto give up Manchuria, nit-ski,

given autonomy. This would be a cheap plan to get rid of them,
bui it would be a grave political

regenerating the Philippines, then in the name of humanity, let us
