$ Commissioner T. Thomas Fortune, a colored gentleman who
.s wise iu his generation, and who, as it is generally known, re
cently visited the Philippines to investigate the industrial condi
tions, reports on his return that the Philippines would form ao
ideal houie.for the negroes of toe South, and there seems to b
some good hard horse sense bank of tho idea. He makes the point
that the white man cannot exist in the Philippines save as a para
feito. while it would be a natural and congenial home for the negro
ruc3. He further suggests that B joker T. Washington, or some
pther prominent colored man be appointed governor of the Philip
pines. There is apparent broad wisdom in the suggostion, which
may yet solve the race question in tho States, and at the same
time populate the Philippines With a Bturdy race of American cit
izens who would preserve order there and -who would build up a
aa-ung, populous and powerful American territory in the orient.
Such an experiment is well worth trying, because it would, if suc
cessful, solve not onlv the nronosition of what to do with the
Philippines, out also what to do for tho negroes.
jjjj The death of no one man on earth is more far reaching in its
direct and indirect results that of the Pope. From Rome to every
land on earth the cross has been borne by the hands of sturdy and
self sacrificing missionary priests, and no body on earth is so
powerful and far reaching in its influence as that of the Roman
Catholic Church. Tne brighest minds on earth, ripened by two
thousand years of experience, shape its destinies, the most zealous
missionaries on earth spread its doctrines, and its revenues, ran
iur from Peter's nence to Diincelv Drivate donations make the
J X a
organization rich beyong all need or care. So perfect is its organ
jaition that the death of one pope and the elevation of a successor
make no perceptible change in its affairs, yet the death of the pope
always seems to mark an epoch in the world's history.
The Island of MhuI,
j2s . The vacillating policy of the Colombian government with ref-,
- erence to tne: Panama Canal' treaty is militating seriouJy against
the final selection of the Panama route. Uncle Sam has been long
aufferingin the matter, and it begins to seem as if thesouthern
neighbors are simply running! a monumental bluff for the. purpose
of further bleeding the United1 States, notwithstanding the fact that
they have piratically buncoed Uncle Sam in the matter of terinsal
rjudy exacted. The United States does not seem to be in a mood for
trifling much longer, and if . Colombia does not round to pretty
sjon, the Nicaragua site for the canal will loom into importance.

j8 None more heartily than jihe News accords high approval to
the work of the legislature which has just adjourned. An ex
tremely difficult task confronted the legislature ,that of framing and
passing an .acceptable county bill, and. the no less serious one of
enacting important ! financial 'legislation, and the members of fhe
lagislature have acquitted themselves nobly of tho trust which
was reposed in them by the people. Of course there were a few
black sheep in the lot, whom the people will remember orly to for
' get, but the working majority of both houses deserve the high
est praise for their work.
jjg The experiment of the Young Brothers of Honolulu in sond
- ing a gasolino launch to Molokai to prospect for fishing grounds
.for the. Honolulu market is suggestive of an enterpiise which
might be. successfully lauchod on Maui. If a company were organ

the rich tishing banks of Kahoolawe and Molokai would "yield a
contiuualharvest of the finny tnbe.nnd not only supply Maui with

The true success of anyypung and growing town depends
largely on harmonious and united action on the part of its citizens.
This is peculiarly true of Waijulru which cannot at present expect
aid from the advent of raUruads and large manufactories. But the
natural and political advantages of Wailuku are such th:it a thriv
ing and prosperous little town can and will be, built here, if the cit
izans of tho town stand together and pull together in all matters
concerning our mutual Interests. A spirit of united action is be
ginning to grow in our midst, and it should be fostered.
fit Now that the future destiny of the Islands has been shaped,
the sovereign people, in whom the governing power ultimately
rests, should stop and take .sober thought as to how that destiny
shall be worked out. The question of county officers to conduct
our municipal affairs is the. next serious proposition to bo consid
ered, and t he bulk of the people, who neither seek nor desire offi
ces, should stand together and turn down ambitious incompetents
- ot whom a crop is sure to spring up. Let us unite to elect good

Maul is the second island of tho
group in size, having an area of 760
square miles. It consists of two
mountains connected bv a low-lying
isthmus seven miles wide at the nar
rowest uart. The scenery is varied.
In the middle, along the sandy isth
nvjs.it seems monotonous and dreary,
but the Iao Valley back of Wailuku
town aud the Kooluu gulches offer
tropical scenery that cannot be sur-
passed. Mount Eeke, at the western
end, is nearly 6,000 feet high, while
Haleakala at the eastern end raises
its dome 10,300 feet -above tho sea
aud is oue of the wonders of the
woi Id. Huleakala has ou its summit
the largest, extinct crater known. It
hus a circumference of 20 miles unci
an area of 19 square miles. There
are cones withm the vast cavity 700
feet above th level of the floor. One
can rideou horseback to the crater's
margin. To make the ascent, witli
a stay over night, for obtuiniug the
sunrise effects, is an experience that
cau never fade from menory. The
grandeur anddesolatiou of the scene,
up there above the clouds, fill the
mind with awer :
la climate Maui affords variety as
great as iu scenery. Cm the wind
ward side it is rainy, and there es
pecially the tropical vegetation is
luxuriant. On the leeward side rain
seldom fails. The average tempara-
ture at the coast is about 70 degrees,
tre mercury seldom falling below 60
or rising above BO degrees. Upon
the gradual slopes of Haleakala al
most any kind of climate can be had,
according to the altitude. At Ounda,
4,000 feet elevation, the thermometer
drops at night to 58 and 60 degrees
nearly all tlie year, in winter some
times approaching the freezing point.
Ice and snow often appear on the.
summit. Kula, at 2,000 to 3,000 feet
elevation, has probably the best cli
mate iu the world for weak lungs.. '
The principal product is sugar. At
Puunene, on the plantation of the
Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar
Company, the largest sugar mill is
situated. It has a daily capacity of
500 tons of raw sugar. There are
nine plantations on the island with a
total yearly output of about 70,000
tons. Coffee is successfully grown,
chiefly by small farmers. Homesteads
at Kula and elsewhere yield -prolifl-cally
of corn, potatoes, peas, beans,
etc.. the owners making a good liv
There is one railway for the pnblic,
which has its termini at Wailuku
aud Pala. The plantations have ex
tensive railroad systems for trans
porting cane to mill and sugar to
shipping ports. Maul had the only
tvlcgragh line ever established on
the islands. It, was built in 1876 and
was 40 miles long, but gave way to
the telephone in 1878. Honolulu was
two years behind Maul In utilizing
the telephone. The island has regu
lar steam communication with Hono
lulu aud Hili). Its road sjstcm is be
ing constantly improved.
Other Small Islands.
Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe is
lands belong to the electoral and tid
idial district of which Maui is the
principal part. Molokai is the first
land sighted by steumers from iSan
Francisco for Honolulu. In length
forty miles and width seven miles, its
area is 270 square miles. The island
has steam communication with Hon
olulu. Besides some small sujar plan
tations, with larger ones under pro
motion, extensive stock ranges and a
teeming deer park, Molukai coutaius
many small farms raising taro, pota
toes and rice. Coffee is also success
fully cultivated. Some ci the grand
est mountain scenery on tho group
belongs to Molokai, as do soma of ttie
most wildly impressive const lines.
The largest slate charity of Hawaii,
costing a quarter of a million dollars
a year to maintaiu, is situated on the
peninsula of Kalaupapa, vast pre
cipiccs making the spot, excepting
to thi most daring traveler, inacces
sible from the rest of the island. Here
are hospitals, aud Mormons, an as
sembly hull, a reading room, etc.
Lanai is an extremely picturesque
aud fertile isle, nineteen miles long
by ten wide. Palawai, 3,200 feet a-
bove sea level, is its crowning peak.
An extensive sheep station is its
Kahoolawe is an islet of sixty
three square miles, 14x6 miles in di
