There are indications of a growing feeling among Hawaiians
that the entire political power should oe vested in them, and that
haoles fehould now stand aside. Fred. Beckley and Kaniho intimat

the residence of a prominent Hawaiian in Wailuku, these seuti

Maui should concern themselves
and intelligence of their future

ate the Islands, und when that lime comes intelligent and honest
Hawaiians will und should have fully as much right to. hold office
as their white brothers. The opposite rule should apply now. if
wa are to achieve our best.
The report of Caroll D. Wright, commissioner of labor, to the
United States Semite, concerning the future of the Japanese on
the Islands is quite interesting, although misleading in it con
elusions. Tiie fear that Hawaiian born Japanese will-one day
dominate the politics of the Islands is groundless. To a certain
point the Japanese may increase in numbers and usefulness, but it
must not be forgotten that the wealth, the industries and the
ownership o2 the real estate is practically all in the hands of the
whites and Hawaiians, and until the ownership of our big planta
tions, our vast, commercial enterprises and our steamer and ship
ping service passes into Japanese hands, which of course will
never happen, there need bo no fear of political domiuance in the
Islands by Japanese.
' ,s t0 regretted that the lower house should hive defeat
ed the item in the appropriation bill providing for a Territorial
immigration agent. There are many industries yet to be develop--fed
by men who are descended from many generations of those who
have waged a hand to hand fight for a livelihood, hardly . wrested
from the soil. This is the class of men needed here to take the
place of knockers who aie afraid of bugs. All of the pests and
plagues that hamper small farming on the Islands can be overcome,
when the right men come here, and tnat they will come is certain,
no matter how they may happen to vote. For that reason the in
telligent help of a Territorial commissioner is neeeded, and it was
diotic to have opposed it, especially on the grounds stated.
The men of any country nre just what their mothers make
thern and no surer way cau be found to raise a noble class of men
than that of providing them with noble mothers." This old truism
bears especial meaning among Hawaiians, and for that reason such
schools as Maunaolu are the cradles of Hawaiian manhood of the
future. A school lor girls only, the generosity of H. P. Baldwin,
the founder of the present Maunaolu, has given to Maui nn institu
tion peculiarly fitted to elevate the Hawaiian race through its
future mothers, who. under loving and nelpful guidance are being
led to now heights of womanhood. Every father and mother of a
Hawaiian girl should give their child the full benefit of a full course
ut Maunaolu if it is possible.

a full set of instruments have "been rented, and. will probably bo
bought eventually. The instruments will be here a week from to
day. and under the leadership of Jos. Schulmeister, a full mem
bership of the band has practically been secured. Thanks to the
enterprise of the people of Wailuku, wo are soon to have a first
. class band.

approve of any member of the Police
Department bing used in the private
interests of his superior officers eith

We would recommend that this
officer be removed and it an officer is
necessary in that district, that one
be commissioned who resides in or
near some settlement where he may
be reached easily and quickly by any
one in need of his services.
We further consider that the offi
cers who were present at the time of
the accident to Mrs. Nakuina at
Kaunakakai showed gross neglect in
the performance of their duty, and
that, they should be severely repri
manded for such neglect. Rather
than let such disgraceful acts go uo

made and a force or officers appoin fe

It has further come to our notice
that one H. R. Meyer; a commission.
ed officer of Molokai, is mail cairier,
and has some business interest in a
salonn at Kaunakakai. It is the
opinion of this jury that no one in
terested in maintaining a saloon
should be allowed on th police force.
We are further of the opinion that
a District Magistrate in Houuaula, a
part of the Wailuku District, is
superfluous, and that the policeman
