j5 Whilo it was probably necessary to do so. still it is a cause for
reirrel. th-it S10.000 was cutoff of the amount appropriated to build
it wagon road from Kailua to Nabiku, because the full sum of the
original annronriaUon. and probably more, will be reeded to com
nlete the road satisfactorily. It is
not auotlier road &o badly needed on the Islands as this same
road. Jts completion will act like magic in developing the entire
area fivm Kailua to Kipahula, and lead to the eventual establish
ment of a continuous chain of small farms and homes accessible
o the wealthy and thickly populated district of central Maui, Had
a substantial road been built ten y.ars ago, there is no reason why
there would not have already been hundreds of thrifty home farms
established all along its line. Means of communication other than
uncertain steamer lines are needed to develop any section of
country, and the whole people of Maui have a vital interest in see
ing east Maui developed as it would be by the construction of a
substitiiiiul wagon road connecting east and cential Maui, botn on
account of increased taxes and increased population and productions,

powers to rake its Manchurian chestnut out of the fire, now appears
in the role of the great Russian Bear with its fangs all displayed
n readinets to hold by force what it has woo by diplomacy. It is
almost a moral certainty that Japan and Russia will soon be at war,
for Russia will hardly consent to withdraw from Manchuria and
Korea tt Japan's request, and such a request unheeded will almost
certainly cause Japan to resort to arms. Were the wai to be one
simply between Russia and Japan its end could be easily foreseen,
be.'iiuse it would simply be a contest between a Siberian blood
hound and a Japanese pug, but it i. a question whether England
would abandon her ally in the struggle. And if England should be
drawu into a war with Russia, 'consequences more disastrous,
momentous and far reaching would follow than can at present be
easily estimated or foreseen. While the United States might not
be drawn into such a conflict, still such a thing might happen, and
it is difficult to see just now the European powers could avoid being

Maui is practically in the foftnii'tivo period so far as sports,
such as racing, polo, haseball and football are concerned, for the
reason that so much hew blood has been infused into these sports,
principally of young men and n'o'w Qomers. Nothing is more import
ant just at this time than that a high sense of honor and unselfisi
devotion to a high standard of sport 'and garnes should be laid as
an enduring -corner stone. The word Maui should become synony
mous with all that is generous noble, manly and honest in all lines
of sport and'gatnes, and it is up to those interested iu such sports
to demand that this become tru9.
jQj There is no 'spot on e-irth where nature has done more to
create ideal conditions for human' existence than in Hawaii nei.
The climate, the soil, the temperature, all in fact which goes to
make perfect conditions has been lavished on the islands in pro
digal abundance. ' Nature, having done this much, could go no
further, and man has begun where nature left off and broad found
ations have been laid for large population of happy and contented
people, who are now beginning to come. No wonder that those
who have lived here and gone away almost invariibly return. '
S. Last week the News referred with regret to' a rumor that
Lahainaluna was to be abandoned as an institution of learning for
Hawaiian boys. It is with unqualified pleasure that the News Is

of Education have no such purpose in View. On the contrary, it is
their intention ta entirely reorganize the Staff of the establishment
and make extensive changes in the buildings, if the legislature al

An Arnb's Horse.
In his "Souvenirs d'un Voyage"
M. Spoil describes a visit to Arabia
and tlie attempt of nn English friend
to buy an Arabian hoi st. The En u tub
man was at great pains to induce the
Arab who owned the horse to agree
to sell him. He persuaded the man to
make an appointment to conclude
the sale alter employing "as much
diplomacy as would bo used in a year
in making or breaking the balance of
power In Europe."
! On the eventful day the English
man, with M. Spoil and M. Luscnris,
t'ode to the rendezvous and found the
Arab sitting by his horse, which was

"What shall I pay your horse?"
"Who knows?" said the Arab.

The Old Violin Maker.
The great violin makers all lived
within the compass of 150 years. They
chose their wood from a few great
timbers felled in the south Tyrol and
floated down in rafts-pine and maple,
sycamore, pear and ash They ex
amined these to find streaks and
veins ana freckles, valuable super
ficially wheu brought out by varnish
ing. They learned to tell the dynasty of
the pieces of wood by touching them.
Thry weighed them, they struck them
and listened to judge how fast or how
slow or how resonantly they would
vibrate in answer to strings. Some
portions of the wood must be porous
and soft, some close of fiber. Just the
right beam was hard to find. When
found, it can be traced all through
the violins of some great master and
after his death in some of his pupils.
The piece of wood was taken home
and seasoned, dried in hot Brescio
and Cremona sun. The house of

is described as having been as hot as
an oven. The wood was there soaked
through and through with sunshine.
In this great heat tho oiU thinned

far into the wood until the varnish
became a port of the wood itself.

spectator of the preparations for
lightening the ship. Suddenly he
Doited t lies scene and by a twenty

floated ashore, and for miles in Ara

that legend. Subsequently the pas
sengers on tho injured steamer were
compelled to abandon it and take to
small boats. On reaching land Sir
Thomas was the first to make a ca

The Arabian coffee maker, having
prepared his tire of charcoal and
placed near it a huge pot containing
water, takes a few handfuls of green
coffee berries, carefu'ly culls out all
imperfect berries and foreign sub
stances and then places the best ol
tho berries in an iron ladle held over
the fire. The berries are permitted
to roast until they begin to smoki
and are then, while still uncharred,
placed in a small mortar and care
fully brayed with a pestle closely fit
ting the cup of the mortar.
. The berries are not, however, re-,
duced to a dust. While this process
has been going on, a small pot has
beeu half filled with tepid water from
the large pot and placed over the
fire. When the water in the pot
has begun to boil, the broken coffee
berries are thrown in,' and the boil
ing is permitted to go on for a shor
time, the decoction being stirred
with a spoon when it shows , signs of
boiling over. The coffee is then
served in small cups without cream
