5D It is difficult to estimate the
tn Mti. rf the eomul?.tion of aVood wasron road connecting Hana
with Kahului. Just one illustration. During sugar season, steam
ers are constantly plying directly between Kahului and. Ban Fran
cisco. From Huelo to Hana s the natural home of the finest bana
nas produced on the Islands, and with such a road in, existence,
thousands of bunches of bananas woujd be b,ro.u3ht overland to
Kahului and shipped to the coatj'bjf e,very steamer. .Homes would
be built up and marketable arops.'prcd.uced along the whole line of
theroad.. Nor should it cost muoti. if an outlay, to build this
road. A road will bo built along the line of the new ditch, and a
reasonable concession by the government would convert this into
a government road without the outlay of one cent of money.
jQrj The result of the recent election has set the Islands on .the
road toward statehood, and whether that road will be a long or
short one hinges'on two factors. The first and most important one
is the ability which tne territorial government displays to govern
itself wisely, along American lines. As soon as a stable and econ
omical government is in existence here, the second, faptor. which
is political exigencies in the. United States, mav be considered. The
peed of wo republican or democratio United States-senators from
Hawaii is an argu.men$ which admitsof.np ant, wer,, when the time
arrives, and for. that reason we should, set our political house in
order, and then await with patience for,tbe lightning to strike.
S5 It will bo an interesting study for .the next two years.to watch
the political drift of the native Hawaiians who supported Wilcox.
, There is no question but that their support of Wilcox was prompt
ed by a sentiment of aloha for the times, people and customs of the
past. But, when unswayed by sentiment, the average Hawaiian
)s a cool, level-headed drinker, who is, honest .in, his convictions.
Hence, if the republicans, who are now in power, justify them
selves in the eyes of the Hawaiians, they will sway the. vqte two
years hence. If not a new party will be formed .and its ranks will
be recruited with Hawaiians who willvpte their convictions, father
than their sentiments.
3Q The assertion is going the rounds, and meets with, absent iu
the minds of many, that much of Kuhio's success arose from the
fact that he is of princely blood. An analysis of the causes which
helped to ejept the Prince on Maui shows that it was the man rath
er than the Alii who was elected. In other words the impression
which Prince Kuhio made on the people of Maul had for i:s strong
est element, a conviction that the Prince is an honest, .fair minded
and progressive Hawaiian, who Jjpth can and will deal well and
ably by his constituency in congress, That,, rather than his prince
ly blood, endeared him to Maui.
jS? The call of Governor Dole for a special session of the Senate
was well-timed and will meet with general approval. In fact
it offers a fortunate loop-hole for the escape of the Territorial Gov
ernment from its unfortunate dilemma with regard to untrust
worthy officials. An extra session however, is supposed to be for
a specific purpose, which should be clearly and distinctly stated
in the call, and in this instance, the wording, of the call is qy-Ue
indistinct and hazy.
j2 The decisive republican victory on the Islands.following so close
ly on the heels of the investigation of tlie senatorial com mission, will
4o much to clear up the tangled snai ls of opposing opinions collected
by the commission, and the senators in reviewing the testimony
taken by them will now know better what to believe and what to
reject.in fra-ning their report to congress.
jjjJt The drift of the plantations on Maui is largely vtoward the
practicinsr of both large and small economies, and this policy wise
ly pursued is their only salvation, in the struggle with beet sugjir.
Cheap labor is important, but not so much so as a scientific system
of economics in the production of cane sugar.
SR There has been too much wasteful and slipshod work done on
our public roads, and one cf the knottiest problems of the next legis
lature will be to devise wis and satisfactory road laws. The main
thing howeer is to, provide that the. roads.be properly, built in
the first place, after which it will be. an easy matter to keep them !

Officials of the Southern Pacific
Company resident in California have
just transmitted to President E. H-.j
Harnman a report relative to tng
fjse of fuel oil instead of coal ou the
comrjajiy's locomotives. Up to Octo
her 1st, 'oMhis year, the company
has spent $3,000,000 for the purchase
of oil lands, storage tanks and oil and
for the conversion of 500 of its 1,400
locomotives iuto oil burners.
On the Westernor Oakland division
of the road, according to the rpport,
it has been demonstrated that when
the engines there have been changed
tato oil burners, the saving la the fuel
(ill per mouth will bo $75,000. When
all the engines we?t of El Paso and

the saving of fuel expenses will be
$150,000 per month, or $1,800,000
annually. During September last
