An Illustrated Village. .
VJ Two roars ajr; . the News strongly urged a combination of the
intelligent vote of the Islands, because therein lay our safety. Thts
year, our only safety lies in th election-, of. the republican- ticket,
and for that reason this paper has unhesitatingly supported that
ticket. Tlv intelligent class of our Hawaiian-, citizens thoroughly
approotato that fact,. and are almost universally throwing their in
fluenco for that ticket. What we have to fear is the ignorant class
of voters whoso minds are simply not capable of reasoning out
true conditions,-.and who are consequently led by their passions and
prejudice?.' They are like wax: in1 the hands ot unscrupulous men,
and .the task set before l'epuAdicuns- is togood-naturodJy and per
sevcringly poiut out the fitfuth-to-then?. This hits already been done
in many cases, and' Mam? is today hopefully republican. The tit at
few days however should be improved to the full extent in that
for ilia mora ?ood work which can and doubtless wilt
be done. .
,'The words republican and democrat, are meiningless tennis,
as-applied to Island politics, and those who-cull themselves demo
crats should carefully examine the candidates who call themselves
republicans-, and compare their personality and aims with those
of the home rule candidates. The democrats of Maui, as a party,
owe no gratitude to the home rule party, and no democrat who
remembers the legislative farco of two years ago, should allow
himself to assist in repeating it. As between Prince Kuhio and
Wilcox, no one would for a moment seriously and without pre
judice deny that the election of Prince Kuhio would be far more
beneficial to the people of the Islands than that of Wilcox, there
fore the democrats as a mass should vote for Prince Kuhio, and
for republicans rather than straightout home rulers, and those of
them who have the best interests of the Islands at heart will do so.
It would puzzle Wilcox's best friends to name one single
thing which he accomplished in congress. What did he do fof the
the queen? What did he do in the way of appropriations? What
did he do for our languishing coffee industry? In short what did
he do. except for himself?. And what could he do if elected again?
Would he pass the leper bill and make the Islands the dumping
ground for American lepers?. He says he will do that, and there
is a strong monied lobby back of hici on that proposition, so he
might put it through. Personally. Robert Wilcox, is a pleasant,
genial man, bul as a congressman he is"an utter and flat failure.if
not worse, and no ono should see and appreciate that fact so read
ily as the Hawaiians themselves, who, if they wijl be honest, must
admit that Wilcox has. never actually achipved one gopd, thing
either for the Islands or the people.
The startling news of the arrest of James Boyd on the charge
of embezzlement, immediately following his suspension from oflico.
comes at a timo when men are wrought up over politics, and it is.
an easy guess that the occurenco will affect politics to some extent.
Of course, Mr. Boyd will have to meet the charges, after the htirly
burly of election is over and stand or fall according to. the deeds
ho has done. Boyd has' many strong friends, and nothing buj
oerwhelming evidence would convince them that he could be
guilty of embezzlement, and of course, this proof if obtainable at
nil, cannot be produced until after the election. While it certainly
was impolitic to suspehd Boyd, still right is right, and it the evi
dences of his guilt were sufficient, there was simply nothing else
for Dole to do,
$J As an illustration of the hind of argument the home rulers
find most effective with their ignorant and easily led following, tbe
name of Prince Kuhio forms an amusing example. The name
"Kuhio," which like most otherH.awaia.i natnesjias a special moan
ing.signities to bend away from, and one of the speakers at the Skat
ing Kink the other night stated that the people should not support
a man who would "kuhio" from the home rule lenders. This was
a witty and effective pun, and quite blinded the eyes of his hearers
to the fact that the Prince is a man of firm and unbending will, as
Wilcox found to his cost. When a majority of the Hawaiians prefix
the word "kuhio" to their own names, so far as Wilcox is con
cerned, a better day will come for them.
The result of next Tuesday' election will decide whether the
wheels ot progress are to movo forward or backward for the next
two years: whether the Islands are to be dominated by its intelli
gent or its ignorant element; whether a body of men wiU be elect-
ed who can and will give us appropriations,. a good county Govern
ment bill and other needed' measures,, or whether a cluttering
home rule legislature will repeat it? futile inanitions of two. years
ago. The people of Maui have their duty to do and a responsibility
to share in the results, which' should stimulate every good citizen
who realizes what would be best for the Islands, to use his strong
est endea'vors in the right direction from now until the polls close
on Tuesdiy afternoon,
fji It is the unexpected which generally happens. In the midst
of our financial gloom, the prospect for u better price for sugar,
and a protective duty ou coffee are becoming apparent in the near
future, and good times aro ahead of us for the next year. This. is.a
stimulant quite equal to the big crop of. sugar of the coming sea,

the little known village of St. Legier,
near by,-on the road between Vctey

lages in Europe and one of the proud

villages. They arc as profusely illus
tared as the modern magazine, for

outside walls some striking picture

scenes of local liTer a pictures of the
annual summer exodus-to the moun

goits, and caricatures of the locol
bigwigs make a bright picture gal
lery of the village. M. Beguin lives in
one of the. most imposing houses in
St. Legier, whence ho obtains a full
view of the crooked little village
street and of the- Dent du Jam an

many years past he has amused him

for hiin. While thev were convers

offered i for it. The bargain was
struck, and ou leaving he again ex
pressed the hope that she would se
cure her husbhiid's vote for him.
