itfi Of course the United States
interfere iu Venezuelan affairs, but
of the allies according to telegraphic dispatches, in wantonly des
straying the Venenuelan navy, will
fingers tingle. Had England
collect a debt, it does not seem reasonable that, tliey would have
adopted such drastic measures. If thej hope to render Venezuela
uuable to pay the deot, by plunging her into an expensive and
desolating war, and then claim part of tne country as eoinpensa
tion.they must understand that they will have the United States to
reckon with. If they only want their money, the United States
should advance it and agaiu place Venezuela on her feet, as a hu
mane measure. If that is not what Germany and England want,
then the United States should find out what they do want and let
them have plenty of it.

$ Central Maui and East Maui are alike interested in a good,
broad road, say at least 16 feet wide, connecting the Nahiku road
with the Huelo road, so that stages can be run from Ku.hu
lui to Kipahulu. It is true that such a road would cost quite a
sum, but the beuefit to the region through which the road would
run, as well as the benefit, to Maui at large, would make it a cheap
investment. Sucn a road would lead to the settlement and cultiva
tion of a large number of homesteads,, and would give central Maui
an outlet for its agricultural productions, notably corn and potatoes
on East Maui. It is said that the ditch company will build such a
road and allow the public to use it, if fair concessions are made to
them, without the investment of any money by tne Territory. But
will they build it where it should be built, and of sufficient width?
If so, the News would favor the proposition of allowing: them to
The announcement in our local
first of January, 1903, the First National Bank of Wailuku will pay
interest on deposits is of more than ordinary interest. From the
Inception of the Wailuku bank, under its present able management,
there was no reasonable doubt but that it would prove a profitable
enterprise, but the benefits are reciprocal, and now small deposit
ors as well as large ones, may congratulate themselves on being
able to invest as well as deposit their money. This beneficent
feature as wTell as other benefits derived from the existence of a
bank in our midst, is the best possible advertisement of the First
National Bank of Wailuku, and every depositor on Maui should
give our local bank the preference as a place of deposit for his
5f While it is true that small farming in the Kula District of
Maui is meeting with many reverses still there is no reason why
intelligent farming will not win out in the end. Jared Smith's pro
posed experimental farm in the Kula District is a timely move and
there is no question but that he will demonstrate that with up-to
date appliances and methods, the farming lands of Kula will yet
prove agricultural bonanzas. Too long, these lauds have been cul
tivated by primitive methods, and insect and parasitic pests have
been allowed to multiply at will, consequently new methods of
cultivation and pest fighting must be introduced.
8 The head article on our local page, clipped from the Advertis
er regarding girdling trees, should be read with more than pas
sing interest by every landholder on Maui. This article, following
the article recently published in News with reference to the ex
periments of W. E. Shaw of Nahiku, open the vista to a long line of
successful methods of increasing and improing our fruit output
on the Islands. These methods and all newly discovered ones
should be studied and practiced, and results should be communi
cated to the Island papers, which will doubtless bo glad to give
them beneficial publication.
Although the proposition of bringing Chinese to Hawaii as
field laborers has met sharp and factional opposition, yet all hope
is by no means lost. As the News has already suggested, the labor
unions are the lever through which the matter can be accomplish
ed. But to do this, white labor must be given a place on our plan
tations. Teamsters, mill men, in fact all labor save that in the cane
fields should be given to non-aliens, and then the planters can ap
proach congress with clean bauds and with the labor organizations
at their back. Are they willing to do this? If not, no Chinese.
2s It was with a feeling of disappointment that the news of the
delay to the cable was received on Maui, and there was a jubilant
reaction yesterday when news of the arrival of the Silverton was
received. It seems too good to be true, hui what is better, the
projectors of the cable lino assert that withia six months it will be
completed to Manila and Shanghai. In the meantime, a club should
be formed on Maui for the purpose of obtaining daily wireless bul
letins from Honolulu, and the News
if enough subscribers will join the
The News was strongly in favor of trying colored labor from
the South on our cane plantations, but it must be admitted that the
attempt on Maui proved a most dismal failure, and any rene val of
the proposition will be. viewed with distrust. Possibly some of the
righo class of labor may be obtainable froui the South, but the ex
periment will prove a ticklish one, and should be handled with ex

up in a pile in the street. One man
makes this up Into balls of about six
pounds weight, which he tosses to a
man who stands on n ladder midway

man deftly catches the ball and tosses
it up to a man who stands on the
roof. This plan would scarcely work
How Billiards Were Invented
. The English are very fond of the
game of billiards, and a letter in the
British museum gives the origin of
sport. It was invented by a London
pawnbroker, whose name was Wil
liam Kew. Kew not only lent money,
but he sold cloth, and for the latter
purpose had a yard measure, with
which he used to compute the
amounts. One day to distract him
self he took the three round balls
which are the emblems of his trade
they may still be seen iu front of
certain sho,is in London and, placing
them on his counter, began' to hit
them nbout with his yard measure.
Ho found it made a pretty game.

He got. a kii ! of skill in making oi.e
bail glance olf the other, and his
ft'ieniis who saw him thus employed
called the game Bill's yard. It was
son shortened into billiards. But
the yardstick was the instrument
with which the balls were knocked
about, and dillicuhy arose as to what
to cull it. They called it after the
name of the pawnbroker a Kew.
Few persons have any idea of the
prodigious quantity of hiva and hot
allies which a volcano in a state of
eruption can vomit in a few hours.
The matter which was discharged
iu (D from Mount Etna and which
threatened to overwhelm Catania,
forms a mass tho extent of which has
been estimated as being not less than
1,000,000,000 cubic vards.
From the immense crater of
Kilauea, in Hawaii, there was vomit
ed in 1310 during 'a single eruption,
a muss of lava equivalent,' to fifty
times the volume of earth which it
was necessary to remove in order to
form the Suez canal.
Iu 1873 the Skaptar-Jokull, one of
i lie most redoubvable volcanoes iu
Iceland, sent forth two rivers of fire,
one of which ran along a valley for
eighty miles, its depth along the en
tire distance being thirty yards.
Finally, it is estimated that from the
mass, ofstoues and ashes which were
discharged in 1882 from Krakatoa,
could be formed a mountain higher
and wider than Mt. Blanc.
The First Steam Cruiser.
It is generally known that the first
steam driven vessel to cross the
Atlantic was built iu Canada. The
information is not so generaf, how
ever, that this same craft vrus sub
sequently converted into a cruiser
ana was the first steamship engaged
in actual war.
The facts in the case are stated in
'Johnson's Alphabet of First Things
In Canada." The.ship was the Royal
imam, btie was built at the Cove.
