Saturday, . June
S? This week hn.j witnessed a touching paguent on Maui, tliat of
a queen without a country, received in royal state by her loving
fsabjects. Lijiunknlani still reigns, but her only empire is in the
hearts of Hawaiian, who would bo less loyal to the 'new order of
things, if they were less loyal to her. It would be a very small and
mean mind which would decry this exhibition of loyalty to a de
throned sovereign, or condemn the spirit which prompts the Haw
auans to render loving fealty to tiiuir queen. While it is true that
our present form of iroverument carries with it a patent of nobility
to every Hawaiian citizen, who has succeeded to the sovereignty
once claimed by the queen alone, and who now individually exer
cises the prerogatives once appurtenant to the queen alone, still
it must be remembered ha$ in the person of Liliouokalani is. vest
ed all that remains, to Uawaiiaus of royalty, and that when she
T.asses away there will be noue to follow her, and tnat the long line
of Hawaiian sovereigns will end in a dream of past power, Then
let none begrudge tho loyal and alTectionate greetings with which
Hawaiian received their Inst ruler.
?( The grand jury, whose labors will'probably be concluded to
day, are to be complimented on the result of their work. Com
posed of intelligent and practical men who fully undeistood and
realized tho scope and. importance of their duties, they went to
work at once and did overtime, in order to expedite the work of
the Court. The hint in some of the Honolulu papers that it was
"Kalua's jury," with the inference that it had been packed to do
Kalua's behests will provoke a smile from those who are acquaint
ed with the personnel of the jury. Pending the trial of the in
dictments which they presented, this paper will offer no sugges
.tions, but so far as their energy and ability are concerned no less
than their frceiou: I'roin subservience to the wishes of the court,
no question can be raised, They have set a high mark for future
;rand juries to copy, and they can rest assured that so far as the
JviS and the people of Maui generally are concerned, they are
' fully entitled to the verdict of "Well done."

The cullure of sisal on Maui has now assumed definite shape
under the auspices cf the Haiku Plantation, and there is no reason-'
able doubt of the success of the entei prise. And this is less im
portant of itself, than are tho results which will flow f rom a suc
cessful enture in sisal culture, for if ic proves a profitable crop,
I'lioro are thousands of acres on central Maui which will be planted
to sisal. It will not prove a poor man's crop, for the two reasons
that it is an expensive job to clear land for sisal and further that a
long, tedious wait will be required to reap the first fruits of an at
tempt to cultivate this plant. ' Still W'th Haiku as a successful
leader, it is difficult to estimate the vastness to which this industry
may eventual lv be e xpanded. , '
J One can but wonder what the real conditions are at the Isth
mus with reference to the position of the Colombian govern
ment in the Panama, Canal Treaty matter. There are evidently
wheels within wheels in the matter, and in this connection It would
be well to remember that the transcontinental railway combine
fought the canal in the open until
off from Nicaragrua to Panama. Their motives for fighting to delay
or defeat the canal are still operative, and had they taken to bush
whacking, they could have foreseen and produced exactly the
cond tions which now exist, and one thing more, they will not
hesitate to use money, if they deem it necessary.
SSl Among the textil j fibers produced on tho Islands, Manila
.hemp is, next to sisil, attracting most attention at present, and re
.cently a long and instructive bulletin has been Jssued by the Phil
jppine bureau oiAgi icuituro concsrning mis noer. some years

has arisen to go outside of the needed work, to fight windmills. It

should get to work, finish its labors and adjourn.

'Thursday at Wailuku was a vrala
day to be remembered. The presence
of the ex-queen' on Maul lent an air
of gayety, and tho Kam. boys with
their band music and the promise ..pf

and was escor ted to a seat of honor
on a raised tli as. Here she was j'wl
td by Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox,
Dorcas Rid.iardson, Louis Kookoo
and Thomas Clark. Mr. Kookoo in
a brief but pleasant speech present
ed thequee n to the immense assembly,
and she ht aciously arose and address
edn few kindly words "to the audi
ence. After a briefluau, and a few
songs, she withdrew, and the luau
continued till one when several
speakers took the platform and dis
cussed the issues of ihn day.' Hubert
Wilcox led off in a speech from wnich
it was easy to see that ha had evi
dently read and digested the advice
given in the Maui Mnwa, for be
argued that the time had come to
lay aside party wrangles in local
affairs, and that the better elemerls
of tho Island should unite in the selec
tion of honest and capable super
visors and other county officers. He
spoke kindly of Delegate Kalaiiana
ole, and advised his hearers to sup
port him at the next electbn if they
saw fit, and '.hot he Wilcox would be
satisfied with the position of leader
of the House in the next legislature.
Senator Kaiue. who was present,
spoke briefly in the same strain, and
so did Thomas Clark. Then followed
Mouth Makekau of Lahaina in a per
fervid address.in which he udvised the
homerulers to disregard tho advice
of the previous speakers and hang
together on strict narty lines. There
was an immense attendance at the
liiau, and an abundance of food for
all the hungry ones.
At one o'clock the crowd began to
thiu out at tho Skating Rink and
gather at the ball ground at Wells
Park to witness two games of ball
booked for the afternoon.At 1:30 the
game was called between the Alohas
and the Y. M. I s with the following
line-up. Alohas. Boote, p.; Nelson,

Seven iunings were played, during
which Vadsworth rau likeVa wild

life, En os batted cannon balls. Mount
castle caught everything. Coke short
stopped all round his feet, Nelson
surprised his most intimate frisnds,
in fact both teams played like Dro-
fessionals, and then the game was
called off with a score of 12 to 11 in
favor of the Alohas, in order to lt

The Kams showed some beautiful
field work in practice, which they
did not make good in the game, and
their battery consisting of Kamakau
p., and Knuloha, c. played their
Lfiame for them.
The Sta s were in
m and with the two Kruegers
fr a battery, made winners, by a
score of 8 to 1. The Kams barely
missed a whitewash, which they
would have got but for nv exusable
error by A. Garcia, s.s. of the,Star..
An easy liner had been rapped to
him and he stooped to pick it up.
But unfortunately the ball struck a
treacherous pebble at first bound
and flew over his head giving King a
run wlule Jackson was putting it
back to the diamond.
In the lirst inning the Knms led at

In the second inning the Kams
captured another goose egg, and the
btnis piled up 4 runs.
Tn tho third inning both aggrega
