0 Just a v.-ord with you, Brother Testa. The writer of this is
an old ex rebel from way down South, and was, in Cleveland's time,
a Cleveland gold:bug anti aruiexation, restore-the queen democrat.

gone to their last long home, so

else? Because their descendents and other foreign haoles have
developed a magnificent industrial
which would brine universal calamity to the Islands. Why else?
Becauso the intelligent Hawaiiaus
of the Islands depends on the sucess of conservative republican
control, in which Hawaiians and haoles jointly share; Why else?

his fatal power of dominating tho

what point of view one looks at it the election of Prince Kuhio to
Congress U so all important that the election of Wilcox, calmly
considered, appears simply a huge burlesque. If a subsidy is to
be secured for the exl-queen, Prince Kuhio a relative of the queen
and a wealthy Hawaiian in his own
appropriations 'are to be secured,
pulican prestige can secure them.
Wilcox could have been coustrued
present conditions it would simply be a piece of pitiable folly,
f& It is to be regretted that the
playing on race feelings and race prejudices in the present campaign,
because the day for class prejudices aud class .privileges has
passed. It is not now a question of whetner the white man or the
Hawaiian shall rule, because under our present form .of govern
ment, every citizen is a peer of every other' citizen,, and the qjes
turn of the greatest good to the greatest number can only be solved
by the selection of the best men for. office,, regardless off race or
color. This truth is growing, and will finally control in the Islands,
and till it does control, the affairs of the Territory will be'misman
aged. There is now strong hope to believe- that the present . elec
tion.will placa the intelligence of the Islands in control of its nat
ional and local political affairs. '
Maui has just reason to feel proud of the men who are running
for the legislature oh the republican ticket. To begin with, there is
not one of them who is not admittedly an honest, square man. In the
second place.their intelligence is in sdih marked contrast to- that of
the bulk of 'the'home rule candidates thht a disinterested man can
but smile at the contrast. Save for Beckley perhaps this is glaringly
true, and as a matter of fact Becttely himself becanie a homo ruler'
because he failed to get the republiktlf nomination' on Molokai two
years ago.The personnel of the repcblifean ticket ch Maui s one to
be proud of, and us indications now strongly point to a clean sweep
on Maui this fall, it may be predicted that Maui will feel proud of
her representatives in the next legislature.
3$ It is rumored on Maui, though whether true or not the News
does not know, that Judge Humphrey of Honolulu and Judge Little
of Hilo are quietly opposing Prince Kuhio, and throwing their
influence to Wilcox. It this be true, the motive can readily "be
understood. When Satan, overcome, reeled and fell from5 the
ramparts of Heaven, he drew many great, but lesser, lights with
him. If it be not true, Jr-dge Humphrey and Judge Little should
be informed of the vicious ruinor at onee in order thVt they may
correct it in haste.

Copernicus was a-t one time alone
in his belief that theearth and planets
revolved round the sun, Galileo was
right when lie asserted that the moon
revolves roundl tho earth, and so was
Columbuwben he asserted the possi J
bility of sailing round the world. Uvt
in all' these cases it is possible that
others, unknown to fame, may have'
shared their beliefs. i
There are two instances in which
one man was absolutely right and, so
far as we know, all the rest of man
kind wrong. One was that of New
ton, the discoverer of the principle
of universal gravitation, tind the
other was that of John Uarveyi, who
was absolutely alone in his coniction
that the blood circulates throujjh the
veins and arteries' of living animals.
In this instance so universal' was the
disbelief that his fdlluw doctors nick
named him "the quack," or "circuU-
tor, and tho word survives, to this
day as the nairlb' of one who makes a
profession of medical knowledge
which he dees not possess.
