3$ Chief Justice Freur, in an address the other day before the
bar association in Honolulu, anions other thtnsrs, said: "There
should: be a regulation of the terms of the circuit court so that tho
court should hold its sessions only at Hilo, on the isiand of Hawaii
and not at Hookena, and at Wailuku only on Maui. Hilo aud Wailuku
are. to be the capitals of the counties, respectively on Hawaii and
Maui, tho court houses are to be
ibraries. It is bad for litigants
do dragged needlessly to places
most expensive for the Territory."
foroffoine is so anoareut that the
K The people of Honolulu are-pUrfning more wisely than they
know.in the matter of inducing tourist travel to the Inlands. It will
oome of its own accord, and wnile no- efforts should be spared to
further advertise the Islands as a tourists' resort, and stimulate
the movement, yet it is no less recessary to plan, for their comfort,
convenience and enjoyment wuen they arrive. The main point in
the matter is not merely to induce thera, to come, but rather to in"
duce them to regain here several months whea they do come
The time will come when thousands of tourists will spend their
winters in Hawaii, and they are the onea we want.
5$ The history of the Chinese empire, as written for the past
live, and as it will be written for the next five and twenty years,
will b9 the record of the absorption of an immense empire by for
eign nations, with a very small China left, and that under the
protection, of foreign powers. The News predicted that Russia
would never loose its grip on Manchuria, and the truth of the pre
diction is now practically conceded. The seed of discontent has
been sown in China by the presence of foreigners, and the harvest
of provinces is ripening for annexation at the first outburst, wiilch
is not a far call away.

There are several weak points in the proposed tax law in the
county bill, notable the hiatus which will occur betwotm January
and June of each year. This however can be provided for in
advance, but a more serious hiatus occurs between the assessment
and the collection of tuxes on transient personal property. So far
as such property is concerned the assessor should if possible have
power to collect such taxes at the time of assassmeuV or if that
b-j not practicable then such property tax should be assessable and
collectable daring the entire twelve months of the year Other wis. i
it will escape taxation.
j With an epidemic of plague raginj in Mazitlan, and its exis
tence openly avowed in San Francisco, the Inlands will probably
learn something new in the matter of handling this dreaded scourge.
It is questionable if such radical measure will be adopted in San
Francisco as in Mazatlan, owing t ) the superior sanitation and
climatic conditions of the former city, but tho contrast in method
ef the two cities in handling the conditions will be full of interest
and instruction to Honolulu if ever ogam compelled wage war
Ugainst bubonic plugue.
(2j The Venezuelan situation, so far a the United States and
Germauy are concerned, is an explosive proposition and nei;ds to
be handled with care, or someuody will get hurt. Tho position of
eur country in the matter is as clear and us easy to be understood us
are the avowed tenets of tho Monroe Doctrine itself. England
understands the situation, and has thrown put an anchor to wind
ward, and all that Uncle Sam should do at present should be to
stand pat and wait in an attitude of prepared expectancy.
jQ A meeting of the citizens of central Maui should be called, and
a committee appointed to draft a memorial to the legislature,
pointing out the many strong and urgent reasons why the Circuit
Court of Maui should not be compelled to pack up its traps and
emigrate to Lahaina once a year, to the great inconvenience and
discomfort 'of all concerned. This is not an elemosynary affair, for
the benefit of any one town, bu; it is an economical question which
should be disposed of far above all selfish considerations.
jOJ When the cultivation of oranges for profit in Southern Califor
nia began, the orchadists were met in the outset by the ravages of
scales which threatened todestroy their young orchards. No known
means of combating the post was available, but such ineaus were
soon discoered and the powers of the legislature were invoked to
compel all orchardists to unite in destroying the pests. The same is
true in the Islands. Difficulties will be encountered at first, but
the intelligent farmers will win in the end.
f2 The Islands are now on the eve of wonderful developments
along the lines of varied industries. It has all the time been a
monumental joke to assert that the marvelous fertility of the Isl
ands was adaptable only to the production of sugar, and in the
next ten years, the mossbacks will see things in the way of diversi.
d industries which will make their eyes shine.

Chemical science has taught us how
to overcome the dreaded diseases that
have swept away whole cities in the
past. It lias taught us the manufac
ture of explosives and munitions of
war and has made possible the great

may be truly said that to chemistry
we owe the most material progress
the world has made.
Whilo this little experiment will
not deal with the hidden secrets that

what power the absence of air has In

For an example of the strength of

"Yes, my boy," the stately officer
kindly answered, "I have to put you

Your face seems familiar somehow."
"I don't wonder you didn't know
me, sir," laughed the lad, "I'm so

It was the general's youngest son,

Virginia Military institute. ''God
