It is six months yet before the time will arrive to elect county
officers and the News takes advantage of the lull to declare its policy
with reference to t-he men whom we will want for county officials.
For sheriff there are at least a dozen qualified men to be found on
Maui. For supervisors, twice that number of capable men can bo
ound, and there are at least two dozen each of available men for
each of the offices of clerk, treasurer and recorder, and half a doz
en good men for tax-issessor. This is an abundance of riches, if
judgment and discretion are used in the selection of men to fill
' our county offices. But the trouble is that for each office, a large
crop of hungry, ambitious and conniving aspirants will spring up.
Consequently party lines should not be drawn too tightly. The
people of the county, irrespective of politicsshould come together,
select the best men, and simply turn down all those whose only
merit is their hungry desire for office, with its loaves, fishes and
Honors. There are enough of us who dou't want office to control
this matter, and it is in our power to have the office find the man,'
rather than the man find the office.
3 Twenty-four thousand home seekers came from the East to
find new homes in California last month. It is the instinct of the
people of the United States to come westward. From the borders
of California they are looking towards tho Islands, and it is' but a
question of time when trie movement towards Hawaii will bogin, an
uncertain movement at first, and dependent to some exlent iipon
what the pioneers in-tho movement ; may develop. By natural
'selection, the riifht peoplo will come here and develop line's' of in
dustry that now lie dormant. The News has continually insisted
,that there are golden opportunities here for thousands of tho right
class' of newcomers, and the verification of the prediction is not
many years away. New people will bring new ideas, which will be
fruitful. While a miscellaneous immigration would be disastrous,
yet it is true to a demonstation that the territory will in the next
few years attract a large population from the states who will come
here and prosper.'

the work of drafting ov amending a count',, bm can apureciate tho.
tremendous amount of work involved, and ine almost insupemou
difficulties which arise in the attempt to reconcile ' the different
parts of the bill to each otner and'io the surrounding conditions.
And the construction of a county bill for our territory necessarily
presents a more than ordinarily difficult problem, so that we may
feel lucky if the working parts of the bill successfully run the
gauntlet of a Supreme .'Court tost. It will ha a work of years to
roduee oyrVunjty bill into proper shape, and all wo ca,:i hopj Tor

afqr. several successive legislatures have amended it.
jgg ' What the Islands now need most is a steady and increasing
tide of tourist travel rather than a rush of immigrants, many of
whom might b disappointed upon their arrival. Tho Exposition
fund is a powerful lever in our hands, and the question is how it
cin be most usefully spent. While it would be well to show our
fruits, coffee, sisal and sugar, yet after all it is nut these winch at,i

had been taken through the long,
grass which grew on the. hank, into
the stream. My neighbors were in
credulous until I Bhowedthem where
tho elephant's tail and feet had been
cut off and where the body lay in the
stream, which proved conclusively
that by some means or other, the
body had been got over the interven-

on account of its ifaritv, extraordin

cutting. It whs regarded as a sacred
stone, and nobody had a right to
possess it except a prince of imperial
blood. Argerius. Clutius, a famous
physician, ip, Amsterdam at the time
of the renaissance, published a work
on the jade, nephritic stone, as it
was, then, called, on account of its
action on the renal system. At the
same period Italian authors spoke of
the jade as osiuda and discussed its
wonderful; powers for healing scia

HoPf.e Race In Kind Solomo-n's
King Solomon was a sportsman,
but not a Nimrod. Ho was the- first
king- in Israel who introduced in his
country "horse races." Dr. iellinek
somf years ago published an ancient
book let of the Talmudical era, where
in a full account of "Solomon's races"
is given. The Bible says ibat King
S olomon-was the owner ' of 40,000
s tables. As the country was divided
into twelve military provinces cor
responding to the settlement of the
twelve tribes, each governed by a
nazib (governor), who had to provide
iorxhe king's wants and needs a
month in the 3'ear, so it may be 'prob-able-
that the races were.- ais0
arrauged; that each mont, a race
rook place in the province un(er the
patronage of that governor whose

Benefits From Running.

muscular development, strong heart

their correct positions. It was run
