Si Wailuku, standing in the midst of the most thickly settled
portion of Maui, on a site unrivaled; for beauty, health and charms
of climate, with an abundant supply of pure mountain water and
unrivaled natural drainage, has received its crowning honor, in
being named as the county seat of Mam County.- The next step
' shonld be to remove the two old
courthouse and the schoolhouse,
house iu accordance with our present and future needs, tor it goes
without saying that the county
Wailuku. The money proposed for this purpose bj the legislature
is not sufficient, and it should be increased to S50.000 and made
available at once so that the courthouse could be finished and
ready for occupaucy by the first of next January. Reasonable
assurances have been given that a new1 school building will be
erected 'on.the new school lot and this building should be completed
by the opening of the September
lation should and doubtless will also be enacted to transfer both
terms of the Circuit Court to the county seat, beginning with the
!; English, is. the official language of the Territory and the Ha
waiians wrong themselves and their children by seeking to re
vert to the official use of the Hawaiian language. We can but honor
Hawaiians for the lovo they cherish for their old queen, their old
llag and their old language, because if their hearts ara true to
those things, they will only the more surely be true and loyal to
our present form of government. But the wheels of time cannot
turn backward. A new order of things has come, and Hawaiians,
who are wise in their .own generation, will make all these new
things their own, and seek to live in the present and the future,
rather than in tho past. With some force it may Oe urged that
many Hawaiians, otherwise capable of becoming good and wise
legislators are handicapped by an insufficient knowledge of Eug
ljsh.'but on the other hand', ,there are as many, if not more wise
dud capable Hawaiians who do possess the requisite knowledge of
English. Opportunities have been presented to all of them in the
past to acquire a knowledge of English, and those of them who
failed to grasp the opuortunity muss fall behind in the race. Ha
waiians who hope to ultimately acquire statehood can find no broader
or straighter road to that goal than that of a thorough and exclusive
use and knowledge of the English language.
There has been some very funny business doing with Malu
lani Hospital, which leads the News tri coincide with the legislature
in the proposition that it is about time for Maui to take over ito
local institutions and stop all meddling with our affairs by that
autocratic coterie in Honolulu known as the Beard-of Health. Dr.
J. Weddick, L. M. Baldwin, and Sister Bonaventure' constituted
the B.oard of Local Trustees and their management of Malulani Hos
pital was in alt respects intelligent, economical and praiseworthy.
Without rhyme or reason, this Board of Trustees was removed,
and in their places were named Dr. Raymond, C. B. Wells and
Srjuator Kaiue, all good. men enough, but the whole transaction is
tainted with the smell of an abortive beef contract,

Cultivation of sisal on the Islands. Dry, stony grounds, apparently

oxcellent fiber, plenty long; very strong; an A 1 fibre," Concerning
the Manoa specimen grown in sandy land where there is a large

2, Assurances have been received from Honolulu which confirm
the wisdom of the Maul Racing Association in its decision to re.
claim the Fourth of July as race' day. Substantial purses have
been offered by the Association,' and the indications are that Maui
is to have one of her old time famous racing days ou the Fourth,
racing events which were formerly houored by the presence of
royalty .itself. The result of last year's races was to encourage
the purchase of several horses on .Maui f?r this year's races, and
next year will probably pee some very fas't Maui horses.
Local option is a fair proposition and the vote of the majority
in each district should decide the question of "wet or dry," but the

The most interesting place of pil- j
grimage in Dublin is' St. ' MichanV
church, where the organ is still to be
seen upon which Handel is said to
have composed his "Messiah." In
the graveyard is the last resting
place of Robert Emmet, and the
vault at St. Michan's provides a
mora grewsome' thrill than the
morgue. The sexton lifts an Iron
tloor and descends a few rude steps,
carrying a light,, without which the
place would be pitch dark. You fol

The eggs of Rome common birds of
the present day have never been
found. There is the robin snipe; its
eggs have never been seen. An Eng
lish zoologist kept a man going up
and down the coast of Labrador for"
weeks purposely to get a robin snipe's
cgg but it was iu vain. The bird is
known by thousands of people, put it
breed so far north and so remote
from any civilization that noscientirjs
observer can'eer get to its nest ere
the young are hatched and have talc
en to wing. The frigate bird that is
so commonly seen at sea on the Pac-
fic aud off the West Indies is such a
solitary bird ann is so seldom seen in
its nest during the hours of daylight
that its egg is rare. It seems strange,
but the egg of so well known a bird
as the sandpiper have never been
found and are almost priceless.
