singular delusion exists in the minds of old timers on the
Islands that if anything should over happen to our sugar planta
tions, the Islands vvouhj become a desolate region, unfit for the
residence of a tioinishing and progressive people. While the dos
ha; of the sugar plantations, if such a thing should ever happen,
would be a deplorable loss, still it does not follow by any means
thatotlier, industries would not flourish hero. Eric Knudson with
his 300,000 bulbs of sisal on Kauai, covering 500 acres, is one illus
tration. Protected coffee is another sure source of future income.
eini-tropic fruits, daries, guava jelly and numberless other
sources of revenue exist, and these minor industries should all be
fostered, irrespective of and auxiliary to our sugar, industry.
II The development of Japanese civilization on the Hawaiian Is
lands, under the fostering influences of American institutions, is
destined to form one of the most interesting chapters in the future
history of the Islands. Few today, who have not carefully obser
ved the characteristics. of the Hawaiian Japanese, drcain of the
development which these people will attain. Naturally ambitious to
excel in whatever they undertake, and endowed with a supreme
confidence in their own abilities, we see. in the Japanese in our
midst tqday, the founders of a race of American citizens who will
be the neers of cotemnorarv Ansrlo-Saxons in religion, art, litera
ture and industrial pursuits, within the next three generations.
On Wednesday of next week a meeting is to be hejd at Wai
Ijiiku for the purpose of selecting three commissioners from Maui o
cooperate with the Hawaiian commission which is to work up an
exhibition of Hawaii's resources for the St. Louis Fair. This is an
important meeting, and should be largely attended by all who are
interested in the development of tne varied resources of Maui
The cctlee men. particularly are vitally interested in this matter
and from Kauro to Honolua, they should be represented. The
coffee industry of the Islands Must be protected, and the Haw
aiian Commission can do much good in this direction, if their at
tention and energies are given to the matter.
t The home rulers of the Island of Haw.aii, have scored a point
by the selection of republicans and denioc rats indiscriminately for
their next legislative t.cket, in an effort to secure good men. f
the republicans and democrats will follow suit, endorse the good
men whom the home rulers have named, and. make new nomina
tious only where the home rulers have named weak men and then
will appeal to the people at large for support without referenda to
local prejudices, the big Island, will send a body of men to the. leg
islature that will be an honor to the Territory. Then if the same
plan is followed on all the other islmds,, we will have the right kind
of a legislature.
It may fairly be conceded that Honolulu has lost the commer
cuu supremacy wnicn sne enjoyed unaer tne republic, so iar as
Island trade is concerned. This is perfectly natural under exist
ing conditions, but Honolulu will not retrograde on that account,
for what is lost in local trade will more than make up for, under the
new conditions which will arise. The cable, the canal, Pearl Har
bor, tourist travel and the naturally progressive spirit of her peo
ple will maintain Honolulu as cho Mecca of the Islands and the key
city of an immense transpacific travel aud commerce, with a mini
mum of 100,000 population.

Although the papers are full of the horrors resulting from the
volcanic eruptions at St, Pierre and St, Vincent, yet no written
description can fully picture the terrible torture that the victims
suffered. It has long been a mystery why so many lives were lost
in the ruins of Herculanoum and Pompeii, but the instantaneous
death and destruction wrought by the recent eruptions serve to
elucidate thesituatiou during the ancient ones, and one can readily
; understand now many of the puzzling mysteries discovered in the
excavation of the two ancient cities.
'fd f The shipment of bananas from Kahului directly to San Fran
cisco and other Pacific Coast cities is destined to bo an important
industry on Maui, and this industry should be inaugurated with
out delay. The sugar steamers leaving Kahului for San Fnmcisco
should be freighted with experimental shipments bought up for
that purpose, and soon a uemand for Maui bananas would be
created, which would lead to the setting out of banana patches
and plantations on much of the waste.but available land of Maui.

The Honolulu papers foreshadow the possibility that Judge
, A. S. Humphrey of Honolulu may be substituted for Robert Wil-
cox by tne Home Kulers. as delegate to congress. While this
seems almost, too good to be true, still if it be true, Judge Hum
phrey will first want to see the Maui News man, and make his
position clear on the proposition of protection to our coffee indus
try. Otherwise we will pulverize him.
The people of Wailuku are leading an attenuated and half
starved social and spiritual life, and are thus failing to round out
and develop the character and stamina needed for a full, rich man
hood and womanhood. While Wailuku is growing in size aud pros
perity, and while athletic and other sports are developing our
young men, on Elijah is needed to lead us to new social, Intellec
tual aud spiritual heights. ' -
