1$ .The question, of the county seit of Maui is now,, practically
settled. While a few of the people of Lahaina, moved by self-interest,
will continue the agitation for the location of the. county
seat at Lahaina,. still even the fairer minded people of Lahaina it
self admit that there is.no hope for Lahaina,, for the reason, that
Wailuku is the center of the wealth, population., and. business in
terest of Maui, and that a natural sense of right and justice will
prevail in the selection of the site of the couuty seat at Wailuku
where it really should be. The News has recently been accused
of ill feeling toward Lahaina, but ;his is untrue and unjust, for the
News has always spoken, kindly of the Piilm Tree city, and has al
ways been ready to advocate its. interests along proper lines. Ad
vocating Wailuku as the county seat is not righting Lahaina, but is
rather fighting for the rights of the-majority. ' i
fijjJ The signs of the times point to the fact thit a united move
ment is brewing ; in .Europe to eventually override the Monroe
doctrine and absorb the southern republics of the western hemis
phere. The entering wedge will be trad between foreign countries
and the w eak republics; then bonds of these republics will be float
ed in Europe until the money loaners of Europe have a death grip
n these republics. Once this accomplished,, under guise of col--
Tecting their debts, the work of absorption will be begun, and if
the United States interferes, the reply will be that our country, is
helping these weak repnblics to cheat their creditors. ..It will form
an interesting problem, difficult to solve, and the United States
should at once serve a notice of "caveat emptor" on these would
be creditor nations.
j3f Among the questions to- be decided by the legislature is that
of licenses, and it is a question that cinnot easily settled,J-There is
no doubt but that many lines of business are over burdened:. with
licenses taxes and a reform is necessary. Still tho merchants
of Honolulu are too radical in asking that all merphandiso license
taxes be abolished. ; In this connection, as each, proposed; county
is to enjoy the benefits of .these .taxes levied within, its limits, it
would be better to refer the matter of licenses to the Board of
Supervisors of each, county, to be adjusted to meet the wishes and
needs of the people of each county. - ,
?2 According to the trend of events, tho powers must . now either
back down or fight Turkey . which, if attacked, will declare it a re
ligious war and rally every Musselman on earth in defense of the
green flag. The unknown quantity in such an approaching strug
gle will be the attitude of JRussia, which, has a century of oppres
sion and repression to avenge. Should Russia, ajly . herself.,. with
Bulgaria, as now seems quite probable, the. European po,wer, must
call a halt, or one of the most gigantic wars will follow which the
combined wealth and power of Europe can wage.
St William T. Brigham, ...director of .the. . Bernice;VP..iBjshop
Museum may be a skilled, scientist and an accomplished curator,
but if Willum T.. Brigham, director of the Bernica P. Bishop Mu
seum offered the insult which it js claimed that he. did to a party
of visitors to the Museum, he should ba incontinently fired out, or
what is better he should be enclosed in a glass case and preserved
in the Museum as an unique specimen of a happily fast disappear
ing class of bigots.
jj The County of Kauai has taken the initiative in the matter 'of
precipitating a school fight over
elaborate amendment providing
our public schools. The amendment, as published in a recent is
sue of the Bulletin lays down on simple and practical lines an easy
method of county government of our schools, and many members
of the legislature will strongly favor the amendment.'
jJH The people of Maui generally will join with the News in con
gratulating Lahaina on the early and certain establishment of a
National Bank at that place. . Maui is advancing along .American
lines, and the two towns of Wailuku and Lahaina, twin gems in jhe
corona of Maui, will Btand iue by side in the lead of the movement
towards progress jmd.prosp eritj.

Once while traveling General Mol-
tke entered a small Swiss hotel, and
as .the head waiter saw his gaunt fig
ure stalking in, wrapped in a worn
out, dusty cloak, carrying an old
leather satcnel, he measured his
wealth by his look -i and ordeted his
assistant to show him to a small room
m the uppermost story.
As he w as making himself comfort
able in the utlic another asistont.
came, as in customary tluire, to ask
the stranger hk name and rank.
The conseauence was that a few
minutes later the proprietor, in full
dress, appeared at the door of the
attic to inform his excellency that a
better room had just been vacated.
"Give that to my servrnt," replied
Moltke, "when he comes with mv
carriage. This is wood enough for
me." And he remained.
Trailing The Grouse.
There is one form of grouse shoot
ing for which I confess a weakness.
This is still hunting, or trailing the
birds on the snow. When a new snow
falls, the woods are like so much clean
paper, and the furry and feathered
folk are so many unintentional scrib
blers. Here a wootl mouse dotted

broke up the meeting.
And here, . amid . the tan leaved
dwarf dushes, is something. Oho!
The very sight of it makes you grasp
the gun tighter, and you begin to
peer ahead and to breathe a bit
faster. Thoso trim prints running
yonder in true line were made by a
grouse. Careful, now - it's fresh as
