literary thought said activity.
mine of beautiful and dignified myths, full of love, music and brave
deeds of heroes, and new ventures
ma should add much that is original and beautiful to the worid's
wealth of literary entertainment. Is there not a young Hawaiian
who can catch and imprison in verse or song, these wierd, ancient
myths, as clear-cut, distinct and

yj Tho Port i) Kican News published a long letter vvh'ch bitterly
comphiius of the cruel treatment alleged to have been received by
Porto liicar.s on th Islands. To
poor, half starved Porto lliccn first arrived, and who can con
sequently compare "with their present well fed, fat und sleek con
dition with the wretched plight in whioh thoy arrived, the sugges
tion of cruel treatment stands out in its true light as a monumen
tal joke. The Porto Ricans who eamo here were not the cane cul
tivating class of Porto Kicy, but rather the starved refugees from
the mountainous eofiae districts. Fortunately Labor Commissioner
Clark is on the Islands, and as his attention has been specially invi
ted to tho communication in question, his report to Washington will
thoroughly vindicate the planters here from an unjust charge of
fH It was not a matter of surprise tint the Supreme Court of tho
Territory have held that there can be no such things as fishing
rights appurtenant to the public and navigable waters of the
United States, surrounding the Hawaiian coasts. The retson for
such, an ancient custom has long passed away, and now any
"American citizen" can fish in the public waters. Whether Jap
anese can lawfully do so, under tne provisions of the organic act,
is questionable, but that question will probably not be raised. The
more important question is whether or not under present condi
tions, the supply of lish for table use will become more plentiful.
It probably will, but wise restrictive laws should be passed to
prevent the destruction of the industry by the use of small meshes.
J5 The Hilo Tribune modestly suggests the name of A. B. Loben
stein as a suitable person for Superintendent of Public Works, in
case of vacancy. But really it is not necessary to roam so far
afield as.llilo, r.o find the right man. If the appointment is to leave
Honolulu, W'. F. Pogue of Maui is far away and one of the very
best men on the Islands to fill that responsible position. Bull
headedly honest, with a thorough conception of the needs of the
Islands, and with an absolute genius for devising and executing
work, V. F. Pogue is logically the one man for the position.
Progressive men are apt to
servatives, and crowned heads are no exception to the rule. When
Emperor William seized the scepter and quietly shelved Bismark
the world stageivd at the news, yet William is today one of the
most powerful and popular rulers of Europe. The young king of
Spain is developing a like originality and tne stilted dons of Spain
ure talking of a straigh jacket for the young man. But the chances
are that the young king will bo the means of advancing Spain far
on the road of modern progress.

Sjjjj The ruling powers at Honolulu, have been scored for run
ning a close corporation, for nepotism, for maintaining the "family,"
and other like charges, but they at least nave never been charged
with omcial dishonesty, and it is with a sigh of relief that the peo
ple of tho Islands see the management of public funds and public
affairs takon out of the hands of thieves and restored to the custody
of tho "hidebound missionaries," who are at least honest, even if
not over popular with the masses.

A rontons Highway.
The most remarkable highway built
in the Unite J States early in the
nineteenth century was the bo called
Cumberland road, which was to ex
tend from Cumberland, Md., through
southwestern Pennsylvania, over the
Alleghany mointr.ins to the Ohio at
V.'hcciii'g, W. Ya., find then on to St.
Louis. It wa so well constructed
that it is a fond road today. Henry
Clay was its rrojeclor a.id chief bu
pot ter, and his services in its behalf
are coinmt mora ted by a a monument
near Wheeling. Wo are told by
letters written at that period that
"there were sometimes twenty gayly
painted four horse coaches each way
doily, the cattle und shee.i were
never out cf sii;ht, and canvas cover
ed wagons were drawn by six to
On this arerit road, which event
ually passed into the hands of the
slates through which it ' runs, the
government expended no less a sum
than $7,000,000. Within a mile of it
on either side the country was a
wilderness, but on the highway itself
the traflio was as dense as in the
main street of a large town, Ten
miles an hour was the usual speed
for coaches. From Baltimore to
Wheeling ran lines of freight wagons,
which carried ten tons, drawn by
twelve horses and with wheels ten

In Norway and Sweden a curious
migration takes place, the irregular
migration of the lemming. There is
r.o telling where this strange animal
will begin its march southward
through Norway and Sweden in
search of food. Tho interval between
one migration aud the next, is seldom
less than seven years or, tis in one
instance, more than seventeen years.
The lemming is a species of rodent
and resembles in some ways our com.
mou water rat. Once started, these
strange creatures press on in a
straight line. There is no checking
their march. If a wall or a house is
in their way, they will try lo climb it
rather than go around it, and if they
come to a stack of corn they will eat
it and then go forward, Tho lem
mings are good swimmers, and so
thpy do r.ot mind rivers and ponds,
although they cannot keep afloat in
The migration comes to a fatal
finish. Taking a direct course to
ward the southwest and southeast,
the animals arrive after awhile at
the seashore. Still they must preps
;n, and the lemming migration ends
for another seven years.

Mother ut Prnycr,
Once, savs a writer, I suddenly
opened the door of my mother's room
and saw her on her knees beside her
chair and heard her sneak my name
in prayer. I quickly and- quietly
withdrew with a feefing of awe and
reverence in my heart. Soon'I went
away from home to school, then to
eollege, then mto life's sterner duties.
But, 1 never forgot that one glimpse
of my mother at prayer nor the qne
word my own name which I heard
her utter. Well did I know tliat
what I had seen' that day was but si
glimpse of what was going on every
day in that sacred closet of prayer,
and tho consciousness strengthened
mo a thousai.d times in duty, 'in
danger and in s't niggle. When de'aUi
came at last and sealed .those lips,
the sorest senf-e of loss I felt was the
knowledge that no more would, my
mother be praying for me.
