the Island, A continuous good wagon rorad from Wailuku to Kipa
hulu would increase t(he value of property; pn East Maui many
thousands of dollars, and make it possible for- hundreds of small
farmers to live and make mpney, all the way f rotri H,uelo to Kipa
hulu, and beyond-. A method, is now presented, and a just and
righteous method, too, to build such a road. The government has
leased the water sheds of East

ed 1'rom these rentals for the purpose of building a road through
the very lands rented. Of this road there is only a short stretch

While the cable between the

practically been shelved for another year at least, by the action of
Senator Hanna, in the interests of the overland railroads. It was
known that these corporations would fight the canals, but friends
pf the measure hoped that public sentiment .would be too strong
for the corporations. The action of congress in shelving the cable
bill, and of Roosevelt in forcing Cuban reciprocity, is making very
interesting reading for ambitious democrats, just now.

gress, making Cuba one of the United States, and civic pride will
prompt the majority of Americans to favor the bill, but it is quite
sure that Cuba, just now tasting the first fruits of freedom, will
gently tell Uncle Sam that sle can only be a sister to him. By and
by, Cuba will become one of the United States, but not until the
people of Cuba have learned by years of experience the advantages
which will accrue to them as an integral part of the United States.
jjjj After all, the introduction of the bill to admit Cuba as a State,
just at this juncture in the Cuban reciprocity fight, looks very
much like a bluff intended to back down opposition to reciprocity,
for fear of free sugar in case Cuba becomes a state. Both Cuba
and the beet and cane sugar men will rebel at the proposition how
ever, as Cuba will prefer freedom tq free sugar, and the sugar
men will prefer duties to Cuba,

A Few of the Famous Blue Laws

The Lost Child.
It had been an experience meeting.
Ten thousand people were assembled
in the great auditorium by the sea.
There had been the handshake, the
waving of handkerchiefs, tho hymn,
the prayer, the world which told the
spiritual hiotory of many a soul.
The bishop stood upon the platform
in the act of pronouncing the benedic
tion.. Emotion was at its height. It
seemed as if a spiritual wave had
swept over the multitude, wrappiug
it iu, a divine caress.
At that moment a little child, was
passed up to the platform, and the
bishop took it in his arms. "Lost
child," were the whispered words.
The baby put its dimpled arms about
the bishop's neck and laid its bead
