J2i The reported draft of the county government bill bears the
impress of careful and patient labor and investigation in its prep
aration, and will, even on its first introduction in the legislature,
be in fair workable condition, with but little polishing off to be done.
Experience alone will demonstrate the worth of some of its proviso
ions. In the meantime, tho suggestion to defer its operc.tion till
January 1, 1004 is a wise and practical one. 'Lhe year's work is now
well under way and to inject county government before the end of
the year would be something like a merchant stopping iu tho middle
pf the month to take stock. Besides, after the measure i passed
time should be allowed to study its provisions before it is put into
operation. The provision to lodge the power of appointing district
magistrates in the hands of the governor is a wise one, and should
be insisted on by the people. A system of taxation is proposed
which bears fairly on all the counties, leaving each to bear the
burden of taxation which it choses to place on iis own shoulders,
Altogether the proposed bill is a commendable one.
ijJJ While a deep and broad collegiate training is not desirable for
pur Hawaiian boys and girls, still an industrial and educational
course far beyond what is at present offered in the outlying com
hi unites is. a crying need. It is an opn shame for hich some one
should be held responsible, that there has not been an industrial
high school established in Wailuku years ago. Young Hawaiian
men and women on Maui who by reason of limited means ou the
part of their parents, have been denied all save the limited train
ing of our country schools are a reproach to those who are respon
sible for this state of affairs,and the corner stone of county govern
ment should be a new era of industrial high schools wherever
there are children to be educated on Maui. The News has repeat
edly pointed out the absolute need for such an institution in Wai
luku, and now that a change is coming the parents of this district
should demand such an institution in our midst.
ij The present rebellion in Morocco is a curious study of the re
sult produced by bringing modern and ancient civilizations into
too sudden and violent contact. M.uley Abdul Aziz, Morocco's
youthful ruler, is an advanced type, and insists on introducing the
railroad, 'the automobile and the bicycle into paths trodden for
thousands of years by camels. In other words.the types portrayed
in the Aniban Night s have arrayed themselves againstthe warriors
depicted in Alice in Wonderland. Abdul, Aaiz, mounted on a low
gauge engine and armed with a Smith and Wesson revol er, is joust
ing with Abdul As Was, mounted on a dromedary, and flourishing
the unuieldy lance of his fathers, and the result of the combat is
easily written in advance.
5$ It is to be hoped that the approaching legislature will strictly
draw the line with reference to the exclusive use of the English
language iu all their parliamentary proceedings, or if a feeling of
delicate consideration for their Hawaiian fellow members prevents
this, then the organic act relating to this matter should be made
more clear and binding than it now is. The reasons for this are
almost too obvious for discussion. The time of the legislature
limited and the vast amount of work they have to do can scarcely
be done in one tongue, to say nothing of repeating every word in
another. Then the heavy expense of interpretation and transla
tion is an unjust imposition. Talk American, please.
JQ San Francisco will probably not be able to stand much longer
in tin) position of the proverbial ostrich, with reference to the ex
istence of the plague in its limits. The matter has been cautiously
and wisely managed, and the scourge has been kept well under
control, but the federal surgical stall have doubtless tola the truth,
and Sun Francisco will be compelled to admit it. However, the
sanitary condition of San Francisco is as nearly prefect as that of
any city, and the natural conditions ihere are against the spread of
disease, so that there is little to fear save temporary inconvenience,
in admitting the existence of the plague.
fjj (iovernor Dole is an honorable and upright man, whose influence
was all powerful in the matter of placing Hawaii anioug the galaxy
of stars on old Glory. But the time has come for Governor Dole
to ri.-sijjin with honor to himself and in favor of younger blood, con
sequently the News respectfully extends to Governor Dole the
shell which was offered to Aristides.
2$ Th.d visit- of the Superintendent of Public Works to the differ
ent Wands on the evo of the meeting of the legislature should
product good fruit on Maui, if any union of our forces can be array
ed to impress our needs on him. Let us get together in the mean
time see what we need, and be ready to advise him when he comes.
jjjj Tim legislature should give careful attention to the matter of
providing for a uroper and creditable exhibit at the St. Louis Fair
in 19il. The money expended for this object will be, if wisely ex
pended; the best advertisement possible of the Islands, and would
be returned to us a hundred fold in tourist travel alone.
JJJj Now that the proposed county government bill is published,
it may be sure that it will be subject to severe criticism. The
News solemnly warns the legislators, in considering the different
provisions of the bill, to lay aside all personal feeling, and let cold,
horse sense govern their actions iu tka matter.

A Queer Picture Thing.

itj 11 Imek street, of 11 Xew ICnsland
town. The story is told in Mrs. Si!.1-'-bee's
''Half century of Siikni."
One day a certain Mr. Miller pns-
SH'jf through Derby street saw
womaii beating clouds of Oust from a
carpet. Something peculiar in its n
pearanee made him stop and look
closely at it, when lie discovered, to
his astonishment, that it was a
splendid piece of tapestry, with lii'c
si?ed figures wroupht from Kapbncl's
curtonil, "Feed My Lamb."

went out on one ol' his vov.iyrs. she
had begticd him to brii.g her a carpet

It was the opportunity of a life
time. Mr. Miller promptly offered
her the choice of tiny carpet in the
stores in exchange for her "queer
picture thinjr," and the woman as
promptly accepted the offer. They
went down-town together, and she
selected, with unbounded delight, a
hideous pattern of glowing reds mid
greens. Her face was full of triumph
when she returned. The best room
at last was to have a carpet that
was a carpet!
It is safe to say that no bargain
ever gave more complete satisfaction
to both parties than that cne made
that morning' jn Derby street, Salem.
