feji While strenuous efforts are being made to bring tourists
to.tbe Islands, ono very important matter is being overlooked. and
that is tho very important and necessary matter of making things
pleasant and comfortable for them at a reasonable price, while
they are liere. The real reason why we do not have fv steady and
continuously increasing tide of tourist travel, without, even having
to ask for it, is fouud in the actual harships which a tourist has to
endure while making the circuit of the Islands. Miserable steam
er accommodations are the principal drawback, and many who
have endured tho horrors of our bucking, pitching, rolling, ill-fitted
and ill-smelling little inter-island steamers, warn their friends
against making the trip. Then we need better roads and cheaper
conveyances to points of interest on the Islands, as well as
proper hotel accommodations. It is simply useless to spend
much money to induce tourists to visit the Islands, until steps are
taken to make their tranportation and accommodations pleasant
and agreeable, while they are here.
SJS The republican senate undoubtedly committed a grave error
in attempting to suppress a recount of the Hilo voto. Nothing
should be so sacred to the Americnn people as a full, free and
correct record of their voice at the ballot box, and no matter what
may have caused the attempted suppression.it will be viewed with
f uspicion. Doubtless the matter was smoothed over by the sent
ate for the purpose of expediting the work of their extra session,
but the matter is too grave to be passed over in this manner, nrjd
Desha owes it to his constituents to appeal to the courts if neces
sary, for a recount. The Advertiser has editorially taken a com
mendable position in the matter, and upon sober reflection the
members of the senate will see their mistake.
The limit is almost reached in the wonderful wave of pros
perity which has swept over the United States, and soon the
receding wave will besrin to flow, leaving thousands of financial
wrecks in its wake. Tbu is not a pessimistic utterance, but is
simply the enunciation of an unalterable law that business must
seek its normal le el and that when the tide of prosperity flows
too high, it will swing back to the other limit. No person or
party in particular can be for blamed this, but one consolation is
that with every advance and recession of the wave, our country will
ffnd itself further advanced in strength and power.
An intelligent and well-directed effort is at length being made
to Introduce the use of Hawaii coffee on the mainland, and when the
people up there once learn the difference between a delicious cup
of Kona coffee, and a cup of Arbuckle chickory, the demand for
Island coffee will tax the productive powers of the Islands. In
this connection, it would not be a bad suggestion to establish a
free Kona coffee house at the St. Louis fair, at which the pure art
iclelshould be brewed and served by Hawaiian girls. Such a scheme
would prove the most attractive and convincing advertisement of
Island coffee possible.
2 Some time since the News suggested, editorially that before
the cable is completed, wireless message will be flying between
the summits of Mount Tamalpais in California and Mount Hale
akala on Maui. This was apparently an overbold prediction, but
according to the recent statements of Marconi, it may practically
prove a true prediction so far at least as sending messages be
tween the Coast and the Islands is concerned, Tnose wlio have
noted the wonderful advances which Marconi is making in wireless
telegraphy will readily concede this.
There is danger ot some friction between the Government
and the projectors of the Pacific cable, and if there is a hitch, the
Government will not back down, because it is able and willing to
build its own cable, if necessary. The projectors of the Mackay
cable doubtless appreciate this fact, and . will therefore, willingly
or unwillingly, yield to the government rather than abandon the
construction of the cable. Consequently, we can expect the Mac
kay cable along at the advertised time, and on conditions satis
factory to the government..
JQJ v hile the real object of the special session of the senate is to
unravel the knotty proposition involved in the removal of untrust
worthy officials, and that being done to adjourn, still the corollary
proposition of investigating the work of the various departments
by senatorial committees was an excellent idea, and that work,
thoroughly done, will settle definitely and forever the question of
whether or not the Boyd - Austin

One of the Great Dinners of Venice
Perhaps the most expensive ban
quet ever given in Venice was that
to Henry III. of France. He was
feasted in the great hall of the doges'
palace, and there were silver plates
for 3,000 guests. At another time
the same monarch was entertained
at a sugar banquet the napkins,
plates, knives, forks and even the
bread (so called) were all of sugar.
The Venetians were mightily pleased
when Henry took his napkin in his
hands and to his surprise found that
it broke to pieces. At this feast 1,260
'ifferent dishes were served, and 300
sugar effigies were distributed among
Two Things That Scare a Negro
Two seemingly harmless things ex
cite the fear of the Eouthern negro.
One is the cracking of the finger
joints; the other is to be stepped
over as he lies prone upon the
ground. The cracking of the finger
joints seems to suggest to the negro
imagination tho rattling of a skel
eton's bones, while to be stepped
over is regarded as likely to bring
bad luck to grown folks and to check
the growth of children. A half grown
negro boy will sternly command a
playfellow who has stepped over his
body to step back in order that the
srjell may be removed.

A prominent, watch manufacturer
is said to be continually deluged with
questions as to where all the watches
go. This county makes thein at the
rate of 8,000 a dav and this rate is
kept up year in and year out, added
to by countless importations.
I r.ever was able to answer the
question," said the manufacturer.
"Nobody in the trade ever tries to.
We find that the life of a watch is
but five yeavs, yet if you will stop
fifty men und ask how long they have
carried their watches fortv-nine of
them will say they have only had one
watch in their entire lives.
We cannot explain the disappear
ance of watches. They do not go into
the ash bins. I remember when the

had disappeared off the face of the
earth, yet millions had been made.
Look at the key watches. Up to some
twenty years ago we made nothing
else. In that twenty years these
million? and millions of key winding
watches have disappeared, and the
question asked unremittingly, 'What
becomes of the watches?' remains
unanswered to this day." Jewelers'
That Number 13.
So prevalent is the prejudice
against the number 13 that car com
panies in many cities have been oblig
ed to omit it, as tho car bearing it
did not "earn its living." In St.
Joseph, Mo., No. 13 happened to be
the car oftenest run over a certain
iine in a locality chiefly inhabited by
negroes. It was discovered after a
time that these would walk blocks"
out of their way to take the cars ot
a rival line, but as soon as No. 14
was sent down in their district the
company's receipts resumed their
previous figure. Thirteen as a house
number a'so is looked upon with sus
picion, and the expedient of 11, 111
and thhu 15 is often employed. New
Dried potatoes is (the name of a

Carolina agricultural experiment
station. The potatoes are boiled,
peeled and evaporated in a cannery
and will remain in perfect condition
for years. The preserved potato be
comes fit for eating after being soak
ed in warm water for an hour. Like
macy other new idea3, this promises
to be a big thing. It insures to the
farmer the perfect preservation of
one of his most prolific and most im
portant general food crops, at the
same time fitting it for safe and
economical shipmeut to distant, mar
ket heretofore closed to it. ;

Hawaii's Rippling Language.
The language of the Hawaiian Is
lands, as every one knows, abound in
vowels and therefore ripples deli
riously in tho mouth. It is only nec
essary td .pronouce such names as
Honolulu, Oahu, KiUuiua.Hito.Mauna
Loa, Karnahamaha and Liliuokalani
to discover this. A young Presbyte
rian clergyman of Brooklyn who vis
ited the islands two or three years
ago and prepared a lecture on them
on his return declared that there
was only one place on the islands
which possessed a name lacking in
euphony. That place was Spreckels
ville. This euphony of the Hawaiian
tongue was productive of one of the
jkes of his lecture. The first time
ne Kave 11 ne remarked incidentally
that he "took the steamer vvy-aliy
!Buy to go to the town of Na-willy-wil-
;iv."A lauszh followed the remark. and
thereafter he always included this
phrase in his lecture. It invariably
produced the same result when used.
