Saturday, July ::
5 It is impossible for the material interests Of any country to
outstrip the educational and intellectual advancement of its gov
erning classes, and that is why it would simply mean ruin
Jo allow the government of the Islands to remain long in the hands
6'f ignorant Hawaiians,- hence the absolute necessity for intelligent
Hawaiians to unite with intelligent huoles and give the territory a
government worthy of its present and future greatness. But the
real point lying back of this is that we simply must educate our
Hawaiian boys who are to be our future citizens A high school
should have been established at Wailuku years ago for the sake cf
those boys whbso parents-h ive not bi;en able to send them away
to obtain educational advantages which are denied them at home,
TliS poor Hawaiian boys in the vicinity of Wailuku should be
robbed of their educational rights no longer.
President Roosevelt, in a formal conference with Chairman
Payne of the Ways and Means 'Coin mUtee of the House, has an
nounced that he will not call a special session' of Congress to legis
late on the Cuban reciprocity bill, but will await favorable action
uy the next, Congress on a reciprocity treaty between the United
States' and Cuba. The Cuban'
tfs feared that any legislation' a-hich revives it will be the death blow
to Hawaiian cane sugar,' as well as beet sugar on the mainland.
Consequently thero is a big fight on for the next sessiou of congress.
Eiwaii will need an eloquent and'
ibngress, and Heaven pity us-if Wilcox-is the best we can do.
2f There is coh3id'erable feeling' oil Maui w'th reference to some
if the unjust methods of imposing taxes on realty, and on cultivat
ed lands in particular. It may be. that the tax assessors are fol
lowing the intent of the law. but if so, the law should be changed.
Where two pieces of land adjoin, one of which is' cultivated and
one is left idle.the idle land is taxed at a certain figure.and the adjoin
ing piece, green and smiling with abundant promise of a rich re
ward fh its owner's thrift and industry, is taxed at least' 50 per
tfent higher.. This method of taxation is too much like the tax-

The example of E. H. Bailey of Makawao: is' one which may
well be followed by every small farmer on the Islands.. By simply
taking the trouble to writ to the leading seed houses in the tates
he received illustrated catalogues, and by a careful study of these
catalogues, he ran across many promising vegetables. For a nom
inal cost he received packages of choice seeds, and the products
of one package of seed, the Deiicata Squash, has more than repaid
himr during the present season, for all' his trouble in securing
eastern seeds. Besides, it has been the means of introducing on
Maui one of the most toothsome arid dainty squashes known. May
there be more like him, ,
j8 The agricultural' and merchants' fair in Honolulu on Monday
of next week is the beginning of a day good things for the Islands'.
Tfhere is no reasonable doubt of its success, and if it is successful
Honolulu should make a point of holding such a fair annually. And
-what is more, Hawaii and Maui should each follow the lead of Hono
lulu in the matter of annual fairs, for which purpose the News
hereby formally claims July 4, 1903, as the date of the Maui Fair,
in connection with ourraces, Other state legislatures appropriate
small amounts to help along such "things; Why cannot Hawaii do
the same? It would pay.

tourist travej to the Islands, and the formation of a committee who
will distribute attractive tourist literature in San Francisco and
on the railroads, is a long step In the right direction. .But that
falls short., A live man with an attractive Hawaiian exhibit should
be sent to the Coast with carte blanche orders to travel and talk
up tourist travel. It would pay big money to do this.

Giant Hawaiian Eels. .
There are three well known varie
ties of eel found in Hawaiian wute rs:
The largest is the big gray fellow
which so closely resCiiiWes his eousin,
the cnuger. He is voracious und
fearless, and the natives tickle ..him
with caution, for when cornered he
fU'hts vicion.sh.i-.ncl can inflict a nasty
wound with his powerful ja ws, which
bristle with needlelike teeth..
The other species are fat, flabby
looking customers, with fantastic
markings of black and brown and
many shades of gray. On an eal of
this sort the skin appears to' hang
loose from the body, and When dis
turbed the head swecls like pulf ad
der's. These eels seldom attain a
trreater length than three feet and
love to locate, in the crevices of a
stone breakwater, from which they
dart out incessant!- and tnaue havoc,
among any .school of small fry which
may be innocently disporting them
selves with in striking distance.
These hooded eels have been known
to haunt a particular spot for over a
year. They arc good eating-, despite
their unprepossessing appearance.
The Size of Great Britain.-
Great Britain is only half as big as
Sumatra and deuble the siz4 of New
foundland. It stand fifth in paint
of size in the list of the world's islands
England without Wales is almost iden
tical in point of size with Roumania
It is less than one-quarter as big
as France or Germany. The whole
British isles only occupy the one six
t?enhundredth part of the surface of
this globe.- Great Biitain is widest
between Land's' End and Keut. The
utmost width is 325 miles. It is
narrowest between Lock Broom, on
the West ' coast of Scotland, nd
Bornoch lirlh. on the east coast. The
distance between the heads of these
two inlets is but twenty-fouriles.
Who Invented Trousers.
It is just a century since trousers
were first adopted. George IV of
England is said to be responsible for
them, introducing the garment to
bide defdrmitiea of his knees sUtierin
duced by gout'. Artists and sartorial
authorities' say the t'rouser is the
ugliest pice of tailoring' ever devised,
and it was. hoped that the recent
meteoric careers of golf and the
bicycle might bring knee breeches
back into style, but the long pant a
loons seem to have entered on their
second century with a new lease of
life. The loose trouser was known to
the ancient Persians,- as" that was
their distinguishing feature in Greek
