5 Germany is disturbing tho world's equilibrium by assuming
additional important as a fuctor in the world's trade. Foreign
trade and commerce va th incentive which made England the
mistress of the seas, and as t ho commercial interests of German
expand, her war fleet will s row in proportion to her commercial
'tonnage. Jealousies between thu great commercial powers and
conflicts wich weaker countries where her trado extends will be
come more and more disturbing elements, and as the southern
continent of the western hemisphere now offers the most inviting
field for commercial enterprise, it is there that the great naval
drama of the future is to be enacted.

j$ Tuesday's Advertiser contains a warm, sweet and sensible
editorial on the topic of bringing small farmers from the mainland
to the Islands. Maui contains v)any available homesteads where
shrewd and energetic fanners, inured to toil and used to combat
ing adverse conditions could make comfortable homes for them
selves, and pfood money besides. But the awkward tenures of our
available land offers one great objec tion, and the peculiar conditions
of trade and travel offers another, and it would not be wise or kind
to invite a general immigration of small farmers at once. Success
ful small farming on Maui must be built up slowly, but it surely
will come in time.
It is only a temporary misforture to the Islands that our local
system of wireless telegraphy has in a sense proved a failure. If
Roosevelt could speak to King Edward across the Atlantic, it goes
without saying that wireless communication between the Islands
should be cheap and easy. The present company have had their
charce, and if they do not develop a successful system in tti9 near
future a nw company should be organized witn plenty of money
behind it. the stations at Molokai and Linui should be discarded
and a succesful four-station wireless line should be operated be
tween Oa'ou, Kauai, Maui and Hawaii at low rates. This can, must
and will be done.

?5tt Tho signing of the Panama canal treaty on January 22 marks
anew era in the world's history. Totha Islands the completion of
the cable was an event of vast importance, but after all it was only
a local event, whereas the construction of the canal, and its suc
cessful operation will revolutionized trade and call for a readjust
ment of the balance of the power among all the nations of earth.
The one absorbing question now is whether the Panama canal can
be successfully completed and
canal is feasible, and one or the other will be completed and sue
cessf ully operated within the next few years.
jQ By reason of. lack of means

on earth, which can only be reached at present by tortuous and

58? That three modern cruisers such as the Germans used in the
attaek on Fort San Carlos should proe impotent to reduce a fort
so'poorly equipped and manned as was the old fashioned fort at
San Carlos is encouraging to cities which are defended by up-to-date
means of defense. With a complement of submarine torpedo
boats, a city armed like San Francisco could bid defiance to the
eets of the world the only danger being from long range guns.

Colorado senate, and in lieu of a war vessel, the United States may
have to order a battery of mountain. howitzers mounted on burros

bucket brigade to dip up and carry out the surplus gore.

on ine matter or Island volcanoes. The impression U general

The Woman find the Rose.
A traveler soj'i)i'(l tit u little cabin
in the OeoriMu woods, hp wore a
white rose on cfht, one that a lit
tle jirl liad plucked end pinned tlicrc
as lit' wa leaving home.
A wnmnn entered the cabin. She
stood and pazed at the rose a mo
ment. Then, daiMfrijr forward, she
tore it from the strunjrer'coat a nd
stamped it on the ruile fliwr.
"Whv did you do that?" asked the
stranger, leaping to his feet.
"Hush!" paid a man who was sit
ting nea ' That's my wife, an'
an' she ain't 'right here," tapping
his forenead. ''We had a little girl
once with blue eyes an hair like a
sunset. She wondered off among the
roes one day, Inst, lost, an' when we
found her she was where the roses
iriow, an' they was creepin' over
her, an' the wife there went mad, an'
now she says the roses stole the child

Thumb Noil Pictures.
In collections, centuries old. to he
seen in both China and Japan are
specimens of the most remarkable
drawings in 'he world, pictures of
all kinds drawn with the thnmb nail.
The nails of the thumbs on the left
hands of the artists of these are al
lowed to grow enormous length;some
times to a foot or eighteen inches,
and are then pared down to a pen
shaped point. Dipping this oddly
constructed pen in beautiful Vermil
lion or sky blue ink, the orly kinds of
ink used in these sacred thumb nail
drawings, the artist gracefully out
lines his work.
Occasionally the bold touches from
the studio of a master in this depart
ment of "high art" are life dize and
arc sketched by a few sweeps of the
artist's arm. Like other pictures
and sketches of the oriejt, these sa
cred thumo nail pictures are mounted
and rolled up like scrolls.
A Musical Bed.
A Com bay man has constructed a
bedstead priced at 10,000 rupees It
is thus described: "It has at its four
corners fojr full sized, gaudily dress
ed Grecian damsels those at the
head holding banjos, while . those- ou
l itfht and left hold fans. Beneath the
cot is a' musical bdx.which extends
the whole length of the cot and is
capable of playing twelve charming
airs. The music begins the moment
the least pressure has been brought
to bear from the top, which is crea
ted by one Fleeping or sitting, and
ceases the moment t'.ie individual
rises. Whiie the music is in progress
the lady banjoisis at the head mani
pulate the strings with their fingers
and move their heads, while the two
Grecian damsels at the bottom fan

Rough- sii' Bachelors
They don't like bacht lot s in the Ar
gentine Republic, and one of the
States there, it is reported, lias just
passed a law to force Ihem to marry.
A man is mai riageable In Argentina
when he is twen!y. If. from that
date, and until he passes his thirtieth
birthdaj, he wishes to remain single,
he must pay $5 a month to the State.
For the next 5 years the tax increas
es 100 per cent Between thirty-five
and fifty years the bachelor is mulct
ed to the tunc of $20 a month. From
his fiftieth year to seventy-live, $30
a month is the tax; but having reach
ed the seventy-fifth year, relief finally
comes, and the tax is nominal, being
reducted to $10 a year. After eighty
a man can remain single without pay
ing anything. There is a paragraph
relative to widowers, who are given
three years ir which to mourn and
pick a successor. A man who can
prove that he has proposed and been
refused three times- in one year, is
also considered to have earned a
remuneration from taxation.
In an article of reminiscensesMary
Stuart Boyd says that Bret Harte
never obtruded his personality. He
also had a dread of people regarding
him for his work only, not for himself.
"Why didn't you tell me it was
Bret Harte who sat next me at din
ner last nitfht?" wailed one of soci
ety's smartest young matrons in a
note to her hostess the morning after
a large dinner party. "I have al
ways longed to meet him, and I would
have been so different had I only
known who my neighbor was." "Now,
why can't a woman realize that this
sort of thing is insulting" queried
the auhor, to whom the hostess had
forwarded htr friend's letter. "If
Mrs. talked with me and found
me uninteresting as a man, how
could she expect to find me interest
ing because I was an author?"
Kansas City Journal: The late Pro
fessor John Fiske liked to tell the
story of three patriotic Americans
who toasted their native land as
follows: The first Here's to tho
United States, bounded on the north
by British America, on the south by
the Gulf of Mexico, on the east by
the Atlantic and on the west by the
Pacific. The second Here's to the
Uuited States, bounded on the north
by the North Pole, ou the south by
South Pole, on the east by the rising
and on the west by the setting sun.
Tho third Here's to the Ur.ited
States, bounded on the north by the
auroia borealis, on the south by the
procession of the equinoxes, on the
east by primeval chaos and on the
west by the day of judgment."
