Thcro is going to be extreme
the Islands, in order to elect right and proper men to our local
offices, when county government prevails. This intellisrent vote
largely exists on the Islands, and is beginning to solidify. It should
be increased however by the introduction of new blood from the
States. This can be done by opening up government land and in
ducing a farming element to seek our midst, as has successfully
done at Wahiawa on Oahu. Like colonies should be encouraged to
settle on all the Islands. Plantation managers could also help the
thins? alonsr bv encourneincr while
Chinese in all classes of skilled
wages, but the investment would

to allow the home rulers to again
The whole proposition is axiomatic, and its adoption will prove our
Jt To make tourist travel a success on the Islands, there must
be more unity and less selfishness or "hoggishness" on the part
of the communities on the different Islands. This does not apply to
Honolulu much if any more ihan it does to several other locations
on the Islands.A committee should be organized consisting ot active,
earnest men from all parts of the Islands, who should not ouly
work together, but should also encourage the people to pull to"
gether on the proposition. A bureau of tourist information should
be established in Honolulu, with branches on each of the other
Islands, so that no matter where a tourist may be, he will have
some one to whom he can apply, who can and will give him full in
formation about routes, hotels, means of coneyance, objects of in
terest and whatever else he may wish to know.
$5t There seems a certainty that this year's sugar crop will
bring four cents, and owing to the shortage in the beet ugar crop,
the average may exceed that price. This was the one thing need
ful to add the finishing touch to the coming prosperity of the
Islands. But the recent hard times have taught a needed lesson
in economy to the sugar men, and they will do well to remember it
when the bright days come. A rigid economy is the foundation
stone on which the sugar industry on Hawaii mu&t be based if per
manent good results are to be achieved in sugar culture.
The Independent, in a spirit of kindly criticism, suggests that
the News transfer the title "Hardly Worth Reading" to the head
of its editorial column. While it would be unpardonably bad taste
in the News to make any comments on its own editorials, still it
may be explained that it is by design that the News avoids the
rich, pungent style, and the untamed, coltish diction which give to
the Independent editorials the glow of a lighted cigar stump in a
dark cuspidor, and which leave the same taste in the mouth that
one would derive from biting into a green walnut rind.
j5 With the firm conviction that it is to the best interests of the
public, the Ntws formally demands that the present term of Cir
cuit Court at Lahaina be the last to be held there. If the Circuit
Court were an eleemosynary institution gotten lip for the benefit
of towns, Lahaina would have a palpable claim, but the Court is
really designed for the transaction of public business, one uulk of
which lies on Central Maui, and it is not right to ask thh people
and the Court to migrate in Lahaina once a year, for sentimental
reasons, for there are no others.
y& It may be a puzzle to some, as to how it happened that the
federal authorities have issued nearly live hundred liquor licenses
,in the Islands, while the local authorities have only issued about
one hundred and fifty. The explanation however is very simple.
It is well known that there is a great deal of illicit liquor selling
on the Islands by small retail stores. The penalty for violating the
federal law is so severe that these dealers arm themselves with a
federal license, and then take chances on being caught by the local
j5j The president's message is peculiarly Rooseveltian in tone,
but nevertheless reflects much that is best and most progressive
in American policy. It was hoped that there would be more refer
ence to Hawaiian affairs and needs,
the Senatorial Committee, perhaps explains that. The recommen
dation of the payment of the Hawaiian Fire Claims was an import
uui matter, aim mere is no reasonaoie aouot Dut Unit Uungress
will pass the measure.
There is no small matter which is of more importance to the
islands just now, than that of building up a permanent tourist
trade. Our political revolution has brought the Islands into prom
inent notice, and the mainlanders have a warm place in their hearts
for the dreamy beauties of our semi-tropic climate. Now is the
time to unite and do heroic work in. the matter of turning the
world's tourist travel to Hawaii nei.
jjjg Properly handled, the question of admitting a limited number
of Chinese to Hawaii as field laborers is likely to be acted upon
favorably by congress, but in order to accomplish this, the plant
ers must take the initiative, and convince the labor interests that
all skilled labor is to- be given to American citizens. ' A re they
Willing to do this? If not, there is

Training Shepherd Dogs.
The natives of Mexico seem lohave
an original way of training shepherd
dogs. A pup is taken from it j mother
as soon after birth us possible, . the
breed of the dog bening immaterial.
The young of a sheep or gout is taken
away, and the pup is substituted.
After the first-few days the pup is
never fed except just before the flock
goes to pasture in the morning and
just after the hheep are brought in
at night. .
As soon as he can walk he goes out
with the floctt and stays with it all
day. Whenever he begins to antici
pate supper bv trying to drive the
flock in before sundown he gets pun
ished. , 7
After he is about a year old he
takes n flock out, guards it from
other dugs and coyotes during the
day and brings it in at the proper
time at night without supervision.
All kinds of temptations can be tried
on any dog that i encountered in the
hills with his flocic, but in spile of all
he will remain faithful to his duty,
driving his flock to a safe distance
before venturing to make the ac
quaintance of any o'.hcr dog.

A Great Battle.
The battle which is known in his
tory as the "Victory of Victories-"
took place at Nehavend. in Ecbatana,
and was fought between the new
Moslem power in 031 and the empire
ot Persia, then one of the most
powerful of the eastern monarchies.
It was one of the most absolutely
decisive battles in the history of war,
and it was all the more amazing by
reason of the fact that it was won
by a people which twenty, vears
before had been unknown barbarians,
lost in the deserts of Arabia.
Arabian historians place ihe Per
sian loss in a single day at 100,000
men killed. This may be and probably
is an exaggeration, but the fact re
mains that the Persian dynasty came
to an end when the battle was over
and that Zoroastrianism, which had
oecn me religion oi jfersia lor over
a thousand years, was at once sup
planted by Islam. Its modern re
presentatives, as is well known, are
now the Parsees of India.
The victory was so absolutely de-ci.-ive
that it extended the Arabian
dominions over the whole of the region
lying between the Caspian sea and
the Indian ocean. With the exception
perhaps of the battle of Tours, no
single fight ever made such a differ
ence in the al ter history of the world.
Peculiueitiesol Russian Winters.
There is one curious thing about a
Russian winter in the latter part of
October or the beginning of Novem
ber the weather will be as mild as it
is here in September. Not a sign can
be seen of an approaching change,
when suddenly, without any apparent
warning, a light haze will be seen in
the northeii sky, and in twenty-four
hours the thermometer may fall 50
degrees. The change is so sudden
and violent that travelers are fre
quently frozen 16 death before they
can gain shelter. v
it has occurred that farmers out
looking after their flocks have been
caught in one of these blizzards and,
missing their way home, have lost
their lives, their bodies remaining un
der the snow until the following
spring. The suddenness of a Dakota
blizzard is well known in the north
western part of our country, but it
is tardiness personified when com
pared with the rapidity with which
a Russian winter storm comes on.
Appetite und Hunger.
'Most persons do not discriminate
between hunger and appetite," said
a doctor of long experience. "Ap
petite is what makes a man drink or
smoke and what makes most men and
women eat. Many go through life
never knowing what hunger really
is, I often fast sixty hours and never

visiting Honolulu, have the SKILLED
feel the worse for it. A friend 6f
mine, a physician in Brooklyn, goes
without food sixteen days at a stretch
and keeps up his work meanwhile.
There isn't an organ that can con
tract ar,y disease from lack of food.
Most of them do become diseased
through the effort to take cafe of
too much food. They are all in better
tone after a fast. Another thing,
hunger is felt only in the mouth and
throat. That gone feeling that many
complain oi is not hunger; that is a
form of disease. If persons would
eat only when they were hungry and
only as much as hunger, not appetite,
called for well, wo doctors would
have to fast." New York Press.

A Question ot Notes.
"Yes, sir," said the man with
frayed collar, "that land is worth
800 a foot, and only a year ago
could have bought it for a song."
"But you couldn't sing, eh?" cack
led the funny man.
The man with the frayed collar
eyed him distantly and haughtily and
replied m cold, cutting tones:
"Oh, I could sing, but I couldn't
get the right notes 1"
And the funny man looked as crush
ed as an overripe strawberry at the
bottom of the basket. -Exchange.
