MRS. G. B. ROBERTSON, Bus. Mgr.
Saturday, September : : 6
The nomination tf Pruice Cupid as delegate to congress was
Vie most fortunate tiling whicn could have happened to the uaw
iians. It is freely admitted bv them that he did not seek the
nomination, and simply joiueri the republican party and Hccepted
the nomination for the good of his people. Notwithstanding Vie
proposed coalition between the democrats ftnd home rulers, Prince
Cupid will be elected. Thn reason for this lies in the fact that in
the past two years, the llawaiiuns have learned a good mauy things
that they did not know before, one of which is that Wilcox is not a
representative Hawaiian,, any further than he is able to represent
his own individual interests. Ti
understand that tho old order of
a new day has come bringing ne a
timate of -he political sagacity of
they will be led by the nose any
their power to weld themselves
Hawaiian republican party.
; Robert Wilcox, who is unquestionably a shrewd politician,
was able to see quito as well as the News could see it, that home
rule affairs were assuming a critical phase on Maui. Consequently
he came over to Maui last week, pocketed all the pawns which he
had set up on tho representative chess board and put up in their
places John Richardson, Thomas Clark and T. B. Lyons, and it is
whispered tht he attempted to put up Col. W. II. Cornweil in
pUce of Senator Billy Whi;e, Mr.
unqualifiedly refused to accept a nomination at Wilcox's hands, and
the attitude of the other gentlemen named has not been declared
yet, although ii is to laugh to tuink
home rule ticket. It is even yet
tvveen the republicans and dempcrats which would give Maui a
respectable representation in the
. not far off, and after that date it
?St While the physical effects of
hiilni nnrl Wailiiku marrind mn
over in painful silence, still the moi'aland social results of the game
are noteworthy. Men are better
meeting each other in physical contests, and much of the harmouy
united purpose which will yet build up Maui to one of the leading
communities on the Islands has its strongest links forged in friend
ly athletic contests. Lahaina and Kula each wish to play Wailuku,
and likely Kula and Lahaina may be induced to meet on the Wai:
luku diamond. While this may not develop high class baseball,
yet it will do better; it vril develop a friendly, cordial spirit be,
tween the different communities on Maui, wich. will tend to, help
all the people of Maui to know, respect and sympathize Avith eaph
other.the fruit of which vfil he more united action, when it is needed ,
f Although the republicans put. an emphatic oounty jjaver
ment plank in their platform, still some of the democrats of Wai
luku openly state that it was merely intended as a vote catcher,
and was not meant in earnest, Don't worry yourselves, my
brothers; if the republicans elect a majority of the present legis
lature and then fail to pass a satisfactory county bill, there simply
will not be any more republican party in the Islands, save in name,
for many years, if ever again.'
Si Candidate Thomas Clark boasts that he has now put Wilcox in
his pocket. Poor Tom is not only "looking backward," but also

here and put Tom in his pocket, where he will carry him till it
suits his selfish convenience to take Tom out and chuck him in the
nearest taro patch. J ust wait, Tom, and the News will prove the
truth of this prediction to you.
fgS Many young Hawaiians will feel inclined to draw away- from
Cupid and follow Wilcox, simply because Cupid has announced
himself a republican. But remember, young men, that Cupid drew
away from Wilcox some time ago and declared in favor of his own
manhood, thus erecting a cross of fire to which every patriotic
young Hawaiian should rally, if he would see his own race move
onward and upward.
j2$ Where the republicans made their mistake as to tho nomina
. tion of delegate was in not having encouraged Prince Cupid to ac
cept the independent nomination of the Hui Kuokoas and then
simply endorse his nomination.This would have given the democrats
a chance to do the same thing without hurting their party pride.
15 Politics makes strange bed follows, and nothing could be l'uir
, nier than to see leading democrats like Col. W. H. Cornweil and F,
H. Hayselden of Maui turn away from Prince Cupid and support
Wilcox. At first glance it seems incredible that it could be true,
but strange things have happened. j
f2 In a recent issue, the Nkws urged the Republicans to take up
Thomas Clark and T. B. Lyons. Wilcox snapped up Clark, but
the better man still remains, and his name would be a tower, o
strength to a fusion ticket, if he will accept the nominatioix. 1

Wasn't His Hat, Anyway.
Mr. Wedclle, visiting bis wife's rela-
lives up in Maine, fairly hud to go to
church that Sunday. He didu't want
to go. but his wife thought it would
do him good und would be apt to
preserve the harmony of the family.
The sermon was long and powder
dry, and Wecklle stole off into the
urrns of Morpheus gently and screi e-
v. As he did not snore, his wife did
not suspect that he had gone to sleep
alongside of her and gave herself up
fully to inspecting the bonnet of the
woman in the pew hi front.
Like nil things, good and bad, the
sermon came to an end at last, but
Weddle slumhered on like a bahy even
after a deacon began taking up the
collection in a hat. When the derby
was passed to Weddle, Mrs. Weddle
was furpriscd to see 'hat he did not
respond. She nudged him violently to
bring him back to his senses, and
Weddle, awakening with a start, sat
upright and, bewildered, gazed at
the hat in the hand of the deacon.
Then he shook his head sleepily and
"No; that isn't mine. Mine is a

How Schley Heard the News.
A gentlemen just over from the
States was telling a good story about
Admiral Schley ut the Army and
Navy Club the other night.
The army was in a favorite resort
when the news of the President's ad
verse action on his appeal from the
verdict, of the court was made public,
and the news was brojght to him by
some friends. He listened to their
information and comment, but made
''Well, what do you think of it?"
queried a warm friend, when he found
the Admiral had nothing to say,
"It isn't said that Cervera got
away?"asked Schley, without even a
symptom of a smile.
"No, of course not."
"Or that the Spanish fleet ever
did business after that date?"
"Then, after all, we did not fight
vain," came the observation, deliver
ed in a tone of voice that expressed
intenst satisfaction and he immediV

Character In Laughter.
Clearly a person's character is
shown by the manner in whteh he
laughs, or, rather, by the sound which
he makes, it is maintained by a Euro
pean psychologist. The following,
according to him, are unerring in
dications; "Those who laugh in 'A' or who
make a sound like 'A' are frank,
loval and fond of bustle and move
ment and are generally of a versatile
"Those who laugh in E' are phleg
matic and melancholy.
"Those who laugh in 'I,' as most
children do, are tinid, irresolute,
candid, affectionate and ever ready
to work for others.
"Those who laugh in 'O' are gener
ous, bold and self confidant.
"Those who laugh in 'U' are misan
thropes." Lamps That Talk,
Electric lamps not only can bo
made to talk, but also to sing. An or
dinary arc light can be made to pro
duce sounds in two ways. One is by
placing the arc in the ' circuit of a
telephone instead of the ordinary
receiver, and the pther is by placing
it in the circuitof the ordinary trans
mitter. In either of these positions it will
pronounce words, which can be heard
distinctly at a considerable distance.
It naturally follows, also, that the
electric arc can be utilized as the
receiver and also as the transmitter
of a telephone.

THE SMALL FARMER.
Editor Maui NwS:.
One finds here otd there within the
different Islands comprising this
group a number of pessimists who
distinctlyrown down any and every
body who advocates the poBsibilitie
for. the home makr and home pro
ducer, generally classed th small
farmer. To strengthen their posit'on
they will point out a number of fail
ures to make anything out of it but
.... . i 1
never wnl you nr.a mm put nis
shoulder to tfie wheel or lend a help
ing hand in, removing many of the
difliculties confronting the man who
does his best to make the most of his
20 or 40 acre lot.
vVhen Horace Greeley said years
ago"young man go West," ho merely
promulgated Uncle Sam's fundamen
tal law,build homes, raise families and
create good citizens..
What do these pessimists with
their vast ranges of land for cattle
do towards this worthy end? simply
'nothing. Should one of our industries,'
coffee, be protected by a small duty
its possibilities are enormous, and
this question is being so well put
forward now that it will eventually
come and then not only the great
district of Koua will gain but also
every Island of the group. Small farm
ing las long passed the experi
mental stage, it is now well known
what can be grown, and grown at a
profit. Chickens are a positive sue
cess provided the mongoose question
is settled by proof fences. Hogs are
an immense prolit provided papaias
are planted insutticicnt quantities to
assure food. Grapes for vine making
can be made a success even on rocky
lands and r-quire little care, and a
ready sale is at home as can be
proven by the large quantity brought
from California. Why not make out
California experimented and found
it a success why not we. Let the
Government do its duty by opening
up lands at a fair price thus helping
the small tanner in every reason
able way. READER.
That Match Race.
Epnon Maui News.
in your issue or Aug. i;iva, you
mako the statement that Bob Cailile
of Lahaina must have got 'cold feet,'
and refused to match Black Bess
against Maui Rose, which is not true.
Bob Carlile, the next day after the
races, met Mr. W.H. Cornweil, Jr., at
Waikapu and offered to put. up two
hundred dol ars ($200.00) a side for
a race between Maui Rose and Black
Bess,for three eighths of a mile. The
p!Ter was accepted and he told Bob
Carlile in the preseuce of two witnes
ses." that he was willing to race. But
when Bob sent the money over' to
make the match,Mr.Cornwell backed
down, and said he had turned his horse
out and would not race Maui Rose
against Black Bess, under any con
sideration. This is the Lahaina ex
planation which you wilt kindly pub
lish. Let the public see which has
got the cold feet..
VOLCANO VERY ACT1V6.
The volcano at Kilauea is in the
most violent state of eruption that
has occured since 1892.
Tuesday morning Mr.Waldron was
able to report liiat he had looked in
to the pit and seen a boiling, tempest
tossed lake of molten lava, 400 feet
in diameter and probably 800 to 10C0
feet below the rim of the great caul-
The present upheavel of lava seems
to be from the very bottom of the
crater and not from a wound in the
side as appeared in June. The liquid
lava is troubled and convulsed as
