Saturday, September :
v The Bulletin says. 'According
two men could be found in the
eo. is mission and present the necessities of that island. As
m tttur of fart, it wjs the dutv ot
Muni, in which case thev could
have been to their ndvauUige, and to the interests of the people of
tho Islands generally. How much would they have learned of the
Island of Hawaii, if they had not visited Hilov or what would they
h ive learned of Honolulu, if they had confined their entire visit to
Hilo? Fortunately, two gentlemen from Maui were able to wing
the senatorial coinmiiteo on tluiir flight to Jlilo, and d mi tiff a brief
trip Iroui L-uiauia to Mxilaa.! L.iy, a low of our more pressing
noads were urged. It unfortunate-that the comuiission could

It is an uuforlun:;te thiusr
Committee couid not visit the kptr set lie merit this week. Nothing
could work a more lasting injury to the Islands than lohavo the Unit
ed States take over the leper settlement and make it the dumping
ground for lepers from the Uuitod
all the expense, 'lfco people of
taxation necessary to care for these unfortunates, But if the Wilcox
bill for' turning over the settlement to the United States should
pass, it goes without Baying that the United States would send all
its lepers here, and fight against it as we might, a vague notion
would find lodgment in tho minds
one vast leper lazaretto.
'IS That additional labor is needed in Hawaiian cane fields is true
and there isno doubt but that the
for that purpose, to the benetit of
Islands. The Senatorial Commission thoroughly understand and
appreciate tnat fact, and will doubtless do what they can iu Con
gress to supply our labor needs.
for the reason; that the. people of the United States are emphaticah
. ly opposed to Chinese immigration. The only hope for us is that
. the Commission will be able to induce the president and members
of congress to look at the matter through the eyes of the commission.
JO? . Prof. George H. Hough, the venerable head of the Depart
ment of Astronomy at North Western University, announces his
belief that the planets, notably Mars. Mercury and Venus are
inhabited by living beings which on account of the greater size and
u?eof these planets are much more advanced in the scale 'of intel
ligence than are the inhabitants of the earth. This Is interesting
and doubtless quite true, as the earth is a'rather small and insignif
ficant planet any way, but the more interesting question yet remains,
as to whether the inhabitants of those planets have heard of us:
Jt It is to be reeretted that the Senatorial Commisson is to close
its work this week, because furtheriuvestigations are needed, still
there is cause for sincere congratulations that so much evidence
has been gathered by them. Tnere is no doubt biit that 'Hawaiian
affairs will receive much attention and a full airing In congress
and the work being done by Senators Mitchell, Burton and Foster
Avill bear much good fruit. As they are all able men, their opinions
and advice will carry much weight, and through their influence, a
much more stable? condition cf affairs will-be brought about.
Tho seismic and-volcanic eruptions now prevailing in so many
places remote from each other, at the same time, may have a ten
dency to frighten some, but as a matter of fact it is thus that the
internal pressure is relieved and safety assured. The fact that the
earth is a ball of molten fire, with.a mere egg-shell crust on the
surface, on which men sport their brief hours is a warm one, but
as long as the vent holes in the shape , of volcanoes continue to
relieve the pressure by active eruptions'. no one need feel worried
about a cataclysm.
$i Puunone Sugar Plantation, as well as the adjoining plantations
on Central Maui, can now begin to look' forward to a brighter and
and more prosperous future. The' 'drought and the scarcity of
labor last year, combined with tho lower price of sugar,, had ' a
depressing effect. Thin year has been an unusually favorable one
for cane crops, and the early construction of the new ditch will
further help matters. Without anticipating a bcoulV better times
generally and a stiffening of the price of Central Maui sugar stock
. is a certainty. . ,
The News regrets to" note that even this early in the campaign
there is some political .."mud-slinging" being done. Fight fair boys,
and strike above the belt. If a man's official actions subject him
to eriticUrn, ho must bear the criticisms, but offensive personalities
whether true or untrue should be frowned down, aud.the Sght made
, on principles.
Has not Wailuku reached the? point whore' a social and literary

Dinner was a. substantial affair in
the reign of Queen Elizabeth, who
was by no means indifferent to the
pleasures of the table. The first
course on great occasions would prob
ably be wheaten flummery, stewed
broth, gruel or hotch-potch. The
second consisted of fish, among which
may be noted lampreys, stock fish,
sturgeon, with side dishes of por
poise. The third course comprised
quaking pudding and marrow ..pud
ding. Then came veal, beef, capons.
humble pie, mutton marrow patties,
Scotch scollops, wild fowl and nfimt.
In the fifth course came all kiwis of
sweets, creams in all their varieties,
custards, cheese, cakes, jellies, war
den pies, junkets, syllabubs, and so
on, to be followed by wh'te cheese
and tansy cake. For drink there was
ale and beer, wine, sack and numer
ous varieties of mead or methcKlin,
some of which wete concocted out o'
as oaau$' as five and twenty herbs,
and were redolent of sweet country
perfume. Chicago News.
A Precedent Established.
A Methodist Clergyman In the up
per portion of the city encountered a
Celt one recent rainy Sunday stand
ing close to the wall of the Church in
an effort to utilize the coping as a
shield from the storm,
"Come inside," said the clergyman
cheerily. "You'll be out of the wet,
and you can have a seat while you're
waiting for it to clear."
"No, thank yez," said the Colt em
phatically. "Oi'll not go inta th'
house uv Sie inimies!"
"Well, that's rather harsh." an
swered the clegyman. "When our
Lord was on earth, did he not go
among his enemies?"
"Yis; he did that," assented the
Celt with growing warmth, "and
yez didn't do a t'ing to him, ayther!,"

For 400 years the Hohenzollern
family has possessed a peculiar talis

in a ring, each head of the house

to have found the ring sealed in a
package with instructions as to its
preservation and transmission writ

The poor are in f;mhion, tfoo,' in a
way. They are playing pir.gpong on
tlie pavements of New Yol k. In this
street, game no rackets are used, but
the children use the palms of their
hands in t hir stead. The ball is some
times a rubber one and sometimes vf
celluloid;. The bulls can be purchased
for 1 or 2 cents, and that is the com
plete cost of the game. White, chalk
lines marked on the asphalt pave
;ment serve as tables, and tho game
can be seen almost any clear day in
any asphalt paved thoroughfare.

A Choice of Hymns.
When the English troops in South
Africa were daily expecting the an
nouncement of a peace settlement
with the Boer leaders, a worthy dean
telegraphed to Lord Kitchener from
the Orange River Colony, savini?.
, "As I am the acting chaplain and
conducting divine service in many
camps tomorrow, may I ask if the
hymn 'Peace, Perfect Peace,' would
not be a most appropriate one to
give out to be sung?." And the great
"K." wired back, "Please yourself.
Jbut I. think 'Onward,' Christain Sol-
.dier! quite as good." .
"Of course," said the bachelor
thoughtfully,, "there can be no such
thing aa- joint rule in a family. Some
one must be the head." '
"True; but the scepter passes from
one to another."
"Well, at the begining of married
life tho husband holds it; then it gen
tly and unobtrusively passes to the
wife, and he never gets it back
"She keeps it forever?"'
"Oh, no; tho baby gets it next."
