There is no quo-si ioti but that they fully appreciate ih impoi tiuice
of fostering the sugar industry by all proper and feasible lr.on-ns."
It is to be hoped that their desire to Americanize- the Islands will

Humphreys, who would "Americanize" bv destroying the sugar

Islands more effectually than tho
by which Americans can be induced .to come and bring capital
here. Were small farming an easy success on the Islands, thou
sands of American farmers would already have settled here. But
insect pests, blight and other conditions have- practically reduced
the Islands to depend solely on sugar. This being t rue, and it be
ing hopeless to depend on white li.bur which cannot be obtained in
California even, with her delightful climate, to harvest l.er lus
cious and golden crops of grapes, plums, apricots and oranges, the
Islands simply cannot depend. on

testimony before tho commission,
Were Hilo to be judged by
pipers, a man from a far country
v,Th.M.t jay in some of its proclivities, notably in the attitude- which
Hilo assumes towards Honolulu.
when the big islaud was really neglected in the matter of public
improvements, but when the kicking becomes chronic, and takes
V';ie form of an envious belittling of Honolulu, it hurts as well as
injures Hilo, Hilo owes it as a
which it oan well do without injury to itself. The fact that Hack
feld & Co. have written $300,000 off their books in an unfortunate
effort to boom the coffee trade in Hilo and Hawaii, is an eloquent
reminder of what Honolulu has done and will do again for the big
island, and an appreciation of that fact should prompt the Hilo
papers to try to build up rather

Party prejudices being laid aside, there is not one voter on
Maui who. would not clieef ully admit that tho group of men who
are running for the legislature with Dickey at their head, are. fur
and away abler, brighter and more competent men then. the group
who are running. with Win. White in the lead. The Hawaiiaus of
Maui owe it to themselves to send the best and ablest material
obtainable to tho next legislature, and for that reason they should
not allow themselves to be Jed like blind men, in party chains, but
should take the men of the two parties, mentally set them side by
side, and without prejudice compare the worth of the men. If t:.is
were honestly done there would not' be one home ruler elected, on
The democrats of Maui are now doubtless in a frame of mind
to appreciate the wisdom of the advice which the News gav'-e ;hem
before the campaign opened, to organize a party on Maui,, and this
may be an opportune moment to make another suggestion".. If
the democrats Wish to be recognized as apoliticalfactor in the future,
they should name a full democratic representative ticket with, say,
Hon. John Richardson of Lahaina as senator, and go bravely iuto
the fight, to .win or lose gallantly,. as the fates may decide. . Hy do
ing so, and following this up by organizing party machinery, they
will be able to go into the field, two years from now, with a hope for
snccess which tljejr present uuorganized condition tieuies them.

'0, The defalcations of the two Wrights, and the alleged defections
of Auditor Austin, will coma as a shock to the p.eople of Hawaii, who
are entirely uuaccustomed to this kind of(thing. An honest admin
istration of public trusts has been' the universal, rule heretofore,
and the need of exercising1 unusual caution in the selection .of pub
lic officers, and throwing salu;ary safeguards uround their ofliciul
action where money in concerned is a lesson which the events of
the past few. weeks. should, teach to the people so thoroughly that
it will not soon be forotten.

It is beginning to become evident that the great powers of
Europe cannot keep Russia pent up. much longer. The completion
of a Russian railway to the Persian Gulf will be tho first' act. of
the great drama of emancipation, which Russia will play, , with
France and. possibly .with-Spain as allies. The readiness .with
which Russia takes advantage of every opportunity to encroach on
her neighbors is apparent, and the curtain will soon .rise on the
final act of Russian emancipation from foreign control.
2s While a few months more will see the completion of the sub
marine cable from the Coast to the Islands, still it is not by, any
means sure ; that the cable . will have a monopoly of news carry
ing. Marconi's wireless system, is rapidly being, perfected for
long distances, audio is by ,no means suro that Awreless. messages
will not be flashing between the summits of Mount- Diablo and
Mount Haleakala. before the first message from the coast to the
Islands is sent uuder the sea..

Auditor Austin may or may not be guilty of the charges laid
at his door but oue thing is certain, he cannot afford to defend
himself hy hiding behind technicalities, if he is innocent of the
charges. Nothing but the most searching investigation can restore
li in to the.high position ho h is ,held,ln tho esteeiu.of, the public
a -d if lie ;s innocent tic should glad'y court each Investigation.-"

The Word "Joss."
''It's a mistake to suppose, that
'joss' is a Chinese word," says a le
tired ship's carpenter. "'I've travel
ed a good bit iii the orient in uiy tinn,
and among the odds and ends of inter
esting information I picked up was u
knockout of the genuineness of 'joss'
as a Chinese4 word. Chinamen only
know 'joss' whon they come in con
tract with Europeans. A Chinese
priest that I became chummy with in
Hankow told me that there was no
such word in Chinese. He explained
that the word wus a corruption of
the Spanish word 'Dios' and had
come into use through the mission
aries. Many early missionaries, he
said, were Spanish priests, aud their
pronunciation of 'Bios' was speedily
corrupted into 'joss' by native
tongues and applied to the Chine.-e
deities. It's only on the Chinese sea
board that the word is understood by
Chinamen. In the interior, the priest
told me,. the Celestials had no knowl
edge of it."--PhiIadelphia Record.

Don't Be Foolish.
Look at your friends and acquaint
ances. You see them deliberately
acting the fool every day. Possibly
you can look your friends ovei vith
less prejudice than you can look
yourself over. Are you acting
the fool and causing yourself uunecs
sary annoyance? There are so many
foolish people in the world that you
often find startling things in looking
yourself over with candor and fair
ness. Atchison Globe.
