S2 The republican party of Hawaii is pledged to oppose the estab
lishment of a national lazaretto ou Molokai, and this opposition is
reinforced by a strong general sentiment, but it is surprising how
many intelligent men favor the idea. While the News does not
on general principles favor the idea, still there is no special cause
of alarm in case it should happen, for the reason that it will not
have the blasting effect on the Islands indicated by some of the
alarmist papers. As a matter of fact if the lazaretto were estab
lished on Molokai, but a small percentage of the world's people
would ever hear of it, and these few would soon forget it, if al
lpwed to do so.
jS One of the happiest results of the advent of the cable to Haw
aii, will be the consolidation of the people of the Islands into one
united whole. Old provincial feuds will be forgotten. New ideas,
new hopes and new ambitions will come with the daily arrival of
news from all parts of the world, and almost before we realize it, a
united Hawaii will be keeping step with the march of civilization
and progress that moves the world along. Then we will have no
time to vaste on petty, provincial differences, and Americanism,
in its highest and best sense, will have fully taken the place of the
recent discords that have divided us.
5 The Pan-American arbitration treaty which has been reported
favorably by the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, and which
"will probably be acted upon favorably by congress is a natural
successor to the Monroe Doctrine, which proved satisfactory as a
temporary measure of protection to the southern republics. But
the time has come when there must be a federation between the
growing powers of the western continent, to protect them from
each other. The Pan-American treaty, which proides for compul
sory arbitration will prove the needed balance wheel to preserve
jseace in the south.
jj That a man of whom but few people have ever heard and few
er people know should die and leave a fortune of $375,000,000 behind
him, which he had acquired during liis life time seems almost incred
ible but that thing has just nappened to one Alfred Beit of South
Africa, who accumulated this immense sum in joint monster ven
tures with the late Cecil Rhodes. In America, there are men who
have accumulated vast fortunes, but their names are household
words. That a man could accumulate over a quarter of a billion of dol
lars without special comment is a striking illustration of changed
3f There is much needless apprehension felt regarding the
recommendation of the Senatorial Commission relative to
the public lands of the territory. There will be no attempt
made by the U. S. Land agents to introduce the system of town
ship and section surveys in vogue in the states, but there will be
a reclassification and correction of the arbitrary and dubious sys
tem of surveys now existing on the Islands.
Ji In another month the legislature will be in session, and Maui
should be at- the front in the matter of making known its needs.
A vital one is u oroad carriage drive up the historical Iao Valley
and the attention of Maui legislators is respectfully invited to
the matter. A road above high water mark should be surveyed
and built this summer.
It Is becoming a moot question whether lantana will be more
helpful or injurious to the Islands eventually. One thing is certain
however, that the growth of lantana will cover arid, rocky places
where nothing now grows, and eventually make place for forest
trees which will eventually choke out the lantana itself.
Four cents a pound as coffee bounty is not excessive, but its
effect if established for twenty-nVe years, would lead Hawaii into
an industry which would supply the United States, and establish an
industry second only to sugar. A monster petition should be sent
.from Maui favoring the petition.

Once an old Apache Indian when
asked the question why his people
painted Iheir f.icco.told this lit tle leg
end: "Long ago when men were weak
and animals were biff and strong a
chief of the red men who lived in
the jc mountains went out to get a
deer, for his people were hungry.
"After walking all day he saw a
deer and shot at it, but the arrow
was turned usido and wounded a
mountain lion, which was also after
tho deer. When the Hon felt the
sting of the arrow, he jumped up and
bounded after the man, who ran for
'He was almost exhausted, and
when he felt his strength giving way
he fell to the ground, ca'ling on the
big bear, who, you know, is the
grandfather of men, to save him.
"The bi bear heard the call and
saw that to save the man he had to
act quickly, so lie scraethed his foot
and sprinkled m blood over the man.
'Now, you must know that no ani
mal will eat of the bea- or taste of
his blood. So wten the lion reached
the man he wnelled the blood and
turned away, but as he did so his foot
scraped the face of the man, leaving
the marks of his claws on the blood
"When the man found that he was
uninjured, he was so tbaukful that
he left, the blood to dry on his face
and never washed it at all, but left it
until it peeled off.
"Where tho claws of the lion
scraped it off there were marks that
turned brown 1n the sun, and where
the blood stayed, on it was lighter.
Now all men paint their faces that
way with blood and scrape it off in
streaks wheu they hunt or go to
Origin of "Watered Stock."
Tho expression "watered stock,"
which describes so well the expansion
of the stock of a company beyond the
value of the property,originated,it is
said, in connection with Daniel Drew,
who was once the wealthiest and
most unique manipulator in Wall
street. Drew had been a drover in
his younger days, and it was said of
him thai before selling his cattle in
the market be would first 'give them
large quantities of salt to make them
thirsty and then provide them with
all the water they could drink. Iu
this way their weight was greatly in
creased, and the purchaser was buy

Path of Ocenn Cable.
There seems to be no logical rea
son why cables cannot be laid across
any section of the oceans of the
world, no matter how great the
depth. Some portions of the Atlan
tic cables are three miles below the
surface, and this is net necessarily
t ho extreme depth, for the cable
may and probably does pass from the
top of one submarine hill to another
without drooping materially into the
deep valleys between, says Lippin
colt's Magazine. The greatest known
depth of tne sea is 40,036 feet, or
7 3-5 miles, found in the south Atlan
tic, midway between the island of
Tristan da Cunha and the mouth of
the Rio d? la Data. Soundings have
been made to the depth of 27,480 feet
in the north Atlantic, sou'h of New
Foundland, and about. 34,000 feet, or
nearly 6J 'miles is reported south of
Ihe Bermudas. Even such "enormous
depths as these need not hinder cable
laying so far as t'..e theory is con
cerned, but in practice, for reasons
of economy maintenance and other
wise, it is found best to take advan
tage of favoring conditions in the
ocean's bed. To illustrate, all of the
cables between the United States
and Europe run up along -our coast
until they reach the neighborhood of
Newfoundland before starting across
to the'r destination in Ireland or
France. The reason for this is found
in the range of submarine tablelands,
forming tho ideal cable bed, which
lies between the three latter coun
