Saturday, July i i
& In last week's News, the name of Judge Humphreys was ten
tatively suggested us au available coalition Candidate for delegate
t J cungrpss, not because it was believed for a moment that the op
pjsUlon would ever agree un Humph reya.'but rather to emphasize
the fact that the Nevvs na9 always insisted, and now insists more
strenuously than ever upon uniiad and non-partisan action in the
matter n selecting a delegate to congress and members of the
legislature. Now that the decent element lias drawn out from the
home rula party, a ray of light appears. Tiie democrats h ive done
wisely in recognizing the movement, and if the republicans are
inspired with a like wisdom, we have seen the last of Wilcox and
idiotic legislatures. But if the republicans still insist on party
men and measures, the News confidently predicts their defe it and
the triumphant reelection of Wilcox and his entire gang, unless the
oemocrats and seceding kuokoas are able to save the day. . 'Has
is-written sorrowfully, for the secreo sympathies of the News man
are with tho republican element on the Islands, but combined uc
tion is ju.it as imperative now as the News insisted that it was
two years ago. .
The ingenuously constructed canal bill which was signed by
the president is u.)w in his hands,
terms impose on him, and a very
lirst duty which the bill ex acts is
satisfactory title to the Panama canal, upon which he is authorized
to p ly 10(O.X.(X) for tho plant, a:id to purchase additionally a
strip of land six ui'les wide on either side of the cam, and there
alter the sum of !?135,(X)0,O0O is to be be expended in the comple
tion of the canal. In the event of
title to the Panama pla it, the president is authorized to secuie
title to the Nicaragua route, to be constructed at a cost of 180,000.-
000. Very rarely has a bill been
inous powers and responsibility
2t Senator hTulauokalani assertalively boasted that the defection
ff Prince Cupid and his following
strength of the home rule party
tf that parly lay in the other Islands. So far as Maui is concern
ed, tho bribe-taking senator is going to receive a surprise that will
jar his wisdom teeth loose. Of .course the more ignorant class of
voters on Maui will be swayed by passion and prejudice, rather
than by reason and right, hut the intelligent following which Wilcox
had on Maui two years asro are very much dissatisfied and disgust
ed with him and nis career, and if an upright and intelligent candi
date for delegate, in whom Hawaiians and haoles alike have confi
dence, is put up,- the days of W'ilcoxism are ended foreveron Maui.
f5 The recent renewal of the "Driebund" or triple alliance treaty
beton Germany, Austro-Uungary and Italy, to t ike the place of
ne treaty just expiring, is one of
ean peace. lne alliance or liussia
and Japan are like safeguards, and these three combinations con
trol the destinies of the weld. The United States needs no such
alliance, but the time is coming when all of the free, republics on
the western continent will find it wiso and necessary to seek a
protective .alliance with ench other. l!or the same reason which- has
prompted the Eu-ropeau alliances.
j5j The movement for tho Hawaiian exhibit at the' St. Louis Exposition-
has been' initiated on tho right basis,- and if the committee
' selected by the different Islands-do theit work well, the results of
the exhibition will prove of incalculabe good to the Islands for
manj years. In tho first plane it will introduce Island manufac
tures on the mainland.and open
Hawaiian manufaefcUTey such as lauhala work, Hawaiian hats and
mats. It will' renew tourist travel to the Islands on a larger scale
than-ever before and it will make a large opening for fruits and jellies.
j3 An agricultural' and industrial fair' on- Maui, in connection
with the Fourth of-July races, in 1903, would- be one of the 'lacst
things that could' be devised for
hibits could easily be secured, say for instance the' court room of
tho Wailuku' Court House. Small premiums could be' offered for
prizes for the agricultural productions 6f the Islands,- for the best
displays of lauhala and kindred work, for cookings needle-work,
jellies, etci This is a matter worthy of discussion-at the meeting
. of the' Maui-Racing Association.
$K The merchants and business mfen'of Wailuku as a class; or at
least such of them as really desire todo business, make a mistake
in not doing a little intelligent' and forcible advertising; in tho local
.paper. The advertisements are all read, and they carry a silent
but powerful intluence with them. Of course there is a right way
and a wrong way to advertise, but it is easy and' profitable tb'do it
the right way-.-
3S The Porto Ricans in' Honolulu, as-v.ell as those on Maul, are
provinghemselves in-many instanees'to be a recklessly criminal
class. The record of Pot to Rican t hieves contained in'this week's
Honolulu papers is'matched on a smaller scale'on Maui) and the
sooner these gentry find their natural levfcl on the reef, the? better.
