J&j A bird's-eye-view of American xolitic3 at the present time pre
sents a most curious and mtsrestiag study. There is. no doubt
but Unit the principles maintained by the present, party in pover
have given to tho United States the marvelous prosperity which
it enjoys, but ihe formation of the monster trusts which are
springing up like mushrooms is
anient!' tne of voters, and whether justly or not, tho evils of
trusts and monopolies will be charged up against the republicans
Tho demi't-ruts will take full advantage of this, with the cry o.
anti-impi'i'inlism added, and it is
that our next president may be a
ever, which would toilow lor tour
salutary effect in more wnys than one, and one result would ce.iv
tainly be to restore the republicans to power for another long term.
The visit of Prince Knhio to Maui this week his produce J a
very marked and salutary elloet on Maui politics. The day of
principles, rather than men, 'has come; and thi broid pitriotism
of Prince Kuhio, in its strong contrast to the petty personalities of
men like Thomas Clark, is strengthening and refreshing. Tho day
for old prejudices and petty spites has now passed, and the bulk
of intelligent voters are coming together under the rallying banner
of the Prince. This does not mean a landslide for the republican
party, because ignorance, prejudice and party passions arc strong
ly entrenched on Maui, but the field is now ripening tthe harvest,
and good, honest work on the part of tho Maui leaders will largely
increase the republican vote at the comin? election,
It is a common expression among those whoso interests or
resentment prompt its utterance, that the hard times prevailing
in the Islands is the direct result of annexation, and that had an
lexation not been accomplished, good times would have continued.
side from the labor problem this is not true, and had trie past
xriee of sugar been maintained,, labor would have been unconsid
ered though annoying trifle. The production of beet sugar ail
over the world, and especially in tho United States, and tho con
sequent reduction in. the price of sugar is what has made the hard
times, and that is what would inevitably have happened 'here at
this time, no matter whether tho Islands had been a monarchy, a
republic or a territory.
fjUjj There is yet a bright future for coffee on the Islands, though
it will require time and patience to realize the full benefits to be
derived from its culture. So far, the Islands have only in a meas
ure been feeling their way, but a distinct market is being created
for Island coffee in the United States, and a consequent de
mand for our coffee is beginning to make itself felt. It is only a
matter of education on tho mainland, to create an ever increasing
demand, and the ability of the Islands to respond to this demand
is hardly realized at present. Co!Tee production will move steadily
forward until it ranks a good second to sugar exports from the
fSs Notwithstanding tho fact that on account of blight and insect
pests, small farmiug is not as inviting in the Islands as on the
Coast, still it is a fact that Maui offers an inviting field for hu:i
, dreds of industrious white families in the States who could come
here and better themselves. There is not a white on Maui, who is
willing to work with his hands and his brains, who cannot -find
plenty to do. or make plenty to do, at money saving wages. The
future prosperity of Maui largely depends on the immigration of a
large number of energetic and hardworking white men, who would
already hav come here, if they had known the true conditions.
Inventions, discoveries and
ago, have startled the world, a l-e received today with but little
notice or comment, such things having become so common that
they are accepted as something io be expected. The mechanism
devised by a Chicago invent');-, by which trains can bo run 125
per hour, and steamers propelled at nearly double their present
speed is announced in a ten-line telegram, and carelessly read by
the average reader. Tho world is moving swiftly, and tho last
century has accomplished more than all the centuries combined,
which preceded it.
K Tho political fight which is on this fall, with the intelligent
Hawaiian arrayed on one side, the ignorant and misled Hawaiians
on the other, and the alleged democratic party running a semi
independent ticket, is burdened with more serious consequences
than can briefly be staged. Tho positive ills which would result
from a complete home rule victory are not mere shadows but are
sin actual menace to our future prosperity, and everyone who has
the actual good of the Islands at heart should support Prince
Kuhio and the republican representative ticket on Maui.
Tne miners' strike in Pennsylvania has assumed so acute u
phase that the end must soon come. The rigors of a severe win
ter are approaching, and the people have become so accustomed
to the use of coal, that deprivation of it means untold horrors. If
nothing else can be done, the government may be compelled to
atep in, take posssssion of and work the coal mines for the relief
of the suffering poor.

The Feminine Mind.
A man can very seldom tell what is

But n woman's mental processes
are not these of a man. Her mental
machinery is Beared nilTerently. You
hear what she tells you. You can
'make Inferences from it. They will
be wrong because you do not' know
how she came to say what she did;
you do not have thf clew. Try to

you will find that you are all at sea

A Japanese Retraction.
The art of retracting without tak
ing anything back if the bull may
be allowed seems to be understood
in Japan. A young orator'at a polit
ical meeting called a publfc official
a thief. A policeman on duty grave
ly rose and addressed a remark in a
low tone to the speaker, who there
upon said, ''The chief of police re
quests me to' retract .the word which
I havo just spoken. Although the
word of a sage should never re-enter,
let us make a concession; let us take
back the word and keep the idea."
Great applause and cries of "Bravo!"
greeted the orator's escape from his
dilemma. Youth's Companion.
Pa'cently a girl in a public school
was asked by 'her teacher to explain
the difference between the words bal
ance and remainder. Her answer wns,
' You can say 'a man lo,t his balance
and feij,' but you cannot say 'a mau
lost his remainder and fell.' "
