3 The news from Venezuela naturally caused an alarm in tht
United States, which was amjarentlv not -justified, as Uoosevelt
has hopn Rplfictfid as arbitrator. Great Britain and the United
States understand each other, but the progressive spirit of Em
nrtrnr William was tho unknown factor, and to those not on tnu
inside, the act of Germany and England in sinking the Venezuelan
Avar ships seems unjustifiable. There is one potent reason How
ever, why England and Germany would hesitate before going to
war with the United States, and that is the certainty that Franco
and Russia would form au alliauco with the United States, the
former for revenge and the latter for expansion.

these warrants are of much interest.

be one of
the most instructive features to him, of his visit to the Islands,
for the reason that it was on Maui that the only effort to introduce
colored labor from the South was made. If he carefully investi
gates the conditions which arose here from tb.9 attempt to intro
duce this class of labor, he may be able to point out the reason for
the failure of the attempt, and suggest means by which desirable
labor may be secured. The two difficulties which ho will have o
confront however are first low prices for labor and high prices for
food, and second the impossibility for such impox'ted labor to secure
and own their own homes on the Islands.
With the cable will come tourist travel, not all at once, but a
steadily increasing tide, and Maui should begin to take aetive
steps to secure a share of this travel. The road up Iao Valley
should be rebuilt on higher ground, and there should be a good
carriage drive at least as far up as Dole's Grove. A comfortable
cottage should be built at the summit of Haleakala, with relays of
carriages and saddle horses from Wailukuto the summit. Thou an
agency should be established in Honolulu, to divert tourist travel
to Maui. Let all this be done thoroughly, and the returns from
tourist travel will repay these outlays a hundred fold.

T.ne xormer Anglican nurcn wnose leaaers were ail goou and pious
men, but the truth is that they were too conservative to reach out
and take told of the masses. With the advent of Bishop Nichols
and the coming of Bishop Kestatick, the'ehurch is reaching out to
touch the heart of family life, and leveling itself to the plane of the
communities. And this is as essential to the vivifying of - Christ

publicans and sinners two thousand years ago.
5S2S The Venezuelan flurry naturally attracts attention to the Uni
ted States navy, and its availability in case of war with any foreign
power. As a matter of fact the German navy is larger than ours,
nd even Japan boasts an equal war tonnage with us, while the
war vessels now being built by England will when completed ex
ceed our entire navy including all our vessels now being built. Still,
if a war should come, the United States will manage to increase
Iier navy to ample dimensions.
S The good news came yesterday that messages are flash
ing between Honolulu and Sau Francisco today, as the weather
settled sufhcently to admit of the splicing tf the cable ends.
Neither is there any reasonable doubt but that the cable will-prove

dound to the Islands themselves, which are now brought into close
touch with the outside world, i
A Memorable Ride.
The most memorable ride in Eug-
ish history was that of Sir Arthur
Owen, which placed the Hanoverian
dynasty on the throne of Great Brit
nin The act of settlement by which
n 1701 parliament elected the house
of Hanover to the British throne was
passed by only one vote, and this
casting vote was given by Sir Arthur
Owen, the member of parliament for
Pembrokeshire. He arrived at West
minster, dusty and travel worn, only
Just in time to record' his vote, hav

Wales for the purpose on relays of
horses kept at all the posting houses
along the route. To that rido Britain
owes its Georgian erajhence it Queen

Mark Twain's First Earnings.
Mark Twain was ence asked by a
friend if he remembered tho first
money he had ever earned.
"Yes," answered Mr. Clemens,
puffing meditatively on his cigar,
"I have a distinct recollection of it.
When I was a youngster, I attended
school at a place where tho use of
the birch rod was not an unusual
event. It was against the rules to
mark the desks iu any manner, the
penalty being a fine of $5 or public
"Happening to violate the rule on
one occasion, I was offered the alter
native. I told my father, and, as he
seemed to think it would be too bad
for ine to bo publicly punished, he
gave me the $5. At that period of my
existence $5 was a large sum, while a
whipping was of little consequence,
and so" here Mr. Cleme.is reflective
ly knocked tho ashes from his cigar
"well," he finally added, "that was
how I earned my first $5."
"I told the boss that I would like
an increase in my salary," said the
clerk at the neckwear counter to the

The delicious flavor which all travel

tablespoonfull each of butter and

ll The News still asserts that it is too soon yet to give up all
hopes of securing Chinese labor for our cane plantations, and that
it can be done if the cane planters and the labor unions work to
gether. But the time is getting short now, and if the thing is
not done soon, it cannot be done at all.
