5 The establishment of a guava jolly plant on Hawaii is one of
the nibBt important news items which has recently appeared in the
Island papers. True, it is only a small matter relatively, but its
importance lies in the fact that it is demonstration of the assertion
dften made in this paper; that there are many industries lying dor
mant, and many avenues to wealth yet untrodden on the Islands,
which are simply waiting for the right men to come along with a
little capital and plenty of energy. It is a no less true than bold
assertion that within the next ten years, the output of minor in
dustries on the Islands will rival the present output of sugar.
Sisal, coffee, vanilla, pine-apple

and capital from the States is not
3Q Dooley says that when a man gets married, he is thenceforth
a married man, and the same aphorism applies to the American
izing of the Hawaiian Islands. When they are Americanized, they
must be thoroughly American. They must adopt American insti
tutions; American methods of thought, and above all,-American
energy and vim, if they do not wish to be left behind in , the race,
The idea that a quasi' republican form of government especially
fitted the Islands was to be in vogue is about dissipated, and trie
fact becomes clearer every day that if we want to be American, we
must move up, catch step and be American in all that the term
implies." ' ; '' ' '
K T. Thomas Fortune, commissioned by President Roosevelt to
visit the 'Hawaiian Islands, spent one day ' on1 Maui. He did not see
very much, but he practically learned all that he cared to'leari
Relative to the importation of colored labor from the South.' He
also learned several other things which will be interesting reading
injthe report which he will submit to the president. While Mr.
Fortune scrupulously avoided expressing himself, still the silence
which he preserved on 'several points leaves no doubt but that he
counts more oh the development of minor1, industries than on an
increased output of sugar.1 1 ' .''
5$ There is no lack of enterprise among the people of Hawaii, but
their enterprise has been' entirely directed n safe and' profitable
ventures, in the main. Heretofore, existing conditions have forbid
den a desired improved' in the matter of inter-island communica
tion, but there are strong hopes that a business revival and ' the
inauguration of new industries will soon demand daily boats of
improved pattern between the Islands. With the demand,-there will
come the supply, and the indications now are that the day is not far
off when .large, swift and elegant steamers will ply daily between
Honolulu and Maui. ' ' ' ' '
SJS The republican party will redeem its promise to frame a
county bill, and as a hiatter of fact that document is about' ready
for publication. It will be the first bill introduced. Crabbe will
introduce it in the senate and Chillingworth in the house, and it
will practically be ready for passage on its introductian, as it will
be caucussed upon before the legislature meets. It is understood
that its provisions call' for an early election, so that the bill may
lecome operative at least by the first of July.
j3i The development of a bamboo cane furniture ndustry on the
Islands is but another illustration of the many untried industries
, awaiting development. Bamboos of immense size and height are
now growing half wild within the limits of Wailuku, and room for
vast groves of them can be found in sight of town. They grow
without culture and if bamboo furniture makes the hit that it
should, thousands of dollars will be realized from bamboo culture
pn Maui. '

SQ; Honolulu is & quarter of a century older today, than it was
one month ago. In other words, twenty-five years of steady pro
gress would not have done as much to promote the prosperity and
importance of Honolulu, as has the cable which has entered its
harbor. From this time on, Honolulu is one of the cities of the world.

The Turkish Woman.
Friday is the only day on which Turk.
ish women enjoy a little, liberty and
release from the dreadful seclusion
in which they are always kept, and
they are npt slow to avail themselves
of the chance, On Friday every one
goes to the Sweet Waters of Asia,
which consist of a small river running
about two miles inland, with trees and
meadows on each side. Hundreds of
boats assemble and glide up and down
the river. Every boat or caique has
two or more Turkish ladies on board.
The sight is a very fine one, as each
private caique is most carefully got
up, and the boatmen wear brilliant
liveries to match thecushionsand the
long embroidered cloth which hangs
over the stern and trails iu the water.
The khedivah of Egypt is one of the
finest, in crimson and gold, embroid
ered with crowns ajd fishes. Besides
the liveries the parasols maka a won
derful show, and here may be seen all
the latest Parisian creations. The la
dies must not speak to men, but the
careful observer can frequently catch
sight of veils lowered or other signals
given when a particular boat is pass
ing, and habitual frequenters can
point out boots which are sometimes
clcse to each other. It is a very lnno-
cent diversion rnd would not satisfy
western ladies. An hour before sun
set the police boats appear and force

An Old Welsh Custom.
The kindling of bonfires on bills js
the simplest of celebrations at any
time.' The Druids made four great
fiVes at their festivals in February,
May, August and November. Wales
seems to have been a country espe
cially tenacious of this custom. Each
family used to make its own fire, and
as it was dying out each member
would throw a white stone into it,
the stones being marked for future
identification. Then all said their
prayers and went to bed, and in the
morning they tried to find all the
stones again. If any stone was mis
sing, it betokened that the owner of
it would die within a year.
Some superstitions are pretty and
picturesque and attractive; this was
one of the many which were cruel as
well as picturesque. It would take
but a slight accident to cause a
fright that' might be actually uan
geflus to a superstitious person, and
it would not be bard for an enemy of
6uch a person to cause that by steal
ing his stone from the fire.

The Changed Grizzly.
There are numerous reliable state
ments of grizz y bears having attack
ed men, but nowadays the grizzly
does not seek out his human victims,
as there are credible statements that
his forefathers used to do. Neither
does he lie in wait and, pouncing up?
on a hunter, . tear him into bloody
shreds in delighted tiendisliness, as
the old time stories used to tell. The
change in the grizzly's disposition is
likenpd by veteran hunters to the
change in the character of the white
cousin of the grizzly, the polar bear
of the arctics. When the stations
for the Hudson Bay company were
established, the diaries of the men
there often referred to the fright of
attacks by polar bears. Many a nav
igator in the arctic seas has been
clawed and chewed to death by polar
bears. But for nearly a century the
polar bear has not been regarded as
so very fierce, and nowadays it is
looked upon as a cowardly beast, As
sociation with armed men has modifi
ed the polar bear's disposition, Out

London's Sewer Hunters
The London sewer hunter before

apron and a pole some seven or eight
feet in lengthy having an iron attach
ment at one end somewhat in the

ience the lantern is invariably fixed
to the right shoulder, so that when
walking the light is thrown ahead and
when stooping its rays shine directly
to their feet. Thus acc.outered they
walk slowly along through the mud,

In its war with England and France
in 1859-CO China was easily conquered
and forced to a humiliating peace.
The Peking Gazette, the official organ
of the government, however, report
ed the following concerning that
treaty of peace:
"As the western harbanans have
admitted their wrongs and humbly
solicited for peace, the emperor in
his infinite goodness has granted their
prayer and, jnoreover, has made them
a present of a large gum of money (in
demnity of war) to enable them, to
begin an honest life, so that they may
