R There are thousands of farmers throughout che Urited States
who are industrious, hard working men, whose larins barely pro
duce a living for the families which occupy them. These men
rarely have more money than is needed to pay taxes and other ab
solutely necessary expenses. They never expect to get rich, and
ur perforce satisfied if they make a couifortablo living. Farmers
of this class could much improve their condition if they were ablo
to come here and secure homes and small farms of tillable land.
Once they get a st;i rt here, they would find a ready cash market for
their surplus products and would do much better on the fertile
lands of the Islands than on the farms they are tilling on the
mainland. The difficult proposition will be to get thorn here and
located on home farms, but it must and will be done in time. This
is a proposition to which Commissioner' of Immigration Lansing
should give much consideration, and the Territory should stand
ready to back him in all reasonable and feasible schemes to at
tract this class of farmers.
jjj Two big and successful race days inside of a month is Maui's
record Job this year, with enough of whizz and go still left to give
another big race day a month heuc if we chose to do 60. Thi
means that central Maui is a very healthy spot in the financial
body of the Islands. While Honolulu and Hilo have been lamenting
dull times, ther has scarcely been a check in the steady prosper,
ity of Wailuku, because of the large.compact atfd steady industries
on central Maui. There is now strong promise that before the
next Fourth of J uly, some very fast horses will be owned on Maui,
and if nothing happens to prevent, the race meet on Maui on the
Fourth Of July, 1904 will probably be on a scale to break all previous
records in the matter of big purses and fast races. In this con
.iection, a formal claim is hereby made for the Fourth of July as
Maui's annual race day, because the Association does not propose
to have races hereafter on August 12.
The permanent prosperity of any town or city rests on fixed
foundations, and when these foundations are removed calamity
fallows. This in a word explains the situation ia Honolulu today.
Five years ago, all the trade of all the . Islands . flowed through
Honolulu, the tolls of which enriched its' merchants. Today the
bulk of the Island trade on the Islands other than Oahu is with the
coast direct. This means that Honolulu must repair its foundations
the materials for which consist of tourist travel, naval and govern
ment stations and increased shipping to the orient. This will all
come in time, but in the meantime a large contraction of the volume
of business and in the mumber of business houses in Honolulu will
be found necessary. It will be a Work of; years to rehabilitate
Honolulu, but that our metropolis has aueveutual bright future
before it is as certain as that the sun rises and sess.
5 The people 6f Maui heartily endorse the action of the Su
preme Court in the disbarment cases and they would not have
mourned as those who could not havo been comforted, if Magoon
had shared the fate of his brother ex-attorneys. Humphrey and
Davis are both bright men, and possess some commendable quali
ties, but the dim, shadowy hand of the Sumner and Nobriega cases
has beckoned them to a well meriLed obscurity, and there seems
to be further work needed by a grand jury, in these cases. Now
that Tampire law practica has received a set-back, the next thing
for Honolulu to do will be to send some of its judicial ermine to
The true aim of athletic sports is nkjfe oqly to develop the
muscles and skill of our young men, but also to cultivate in them
a manly, generous spirit of give and take, and the ability to win
success or bear defeat with modest dignity and unfailing good
btrmbr. The exhibition, of feeling at the base ball grounds oil Wed
nesday afternoon was not flattering to Maui, but our young men,
who are in the main a manly set of youngfieilovvs, should take the
lesson to heart and . resolvo 'that henceforth all exhibitions of
temper are to be repressed, and a policeman detailed if necessary
to look after those who need suppression.
CI Th question of devoting the school funds of the Territory to
mi education of Chinese and Japanese children is beginning to
arouse discussion, especially as there is now u larger number of
these children than of any other races attending our schools. There
js but one thing to do however, and that is to educate them as far
as our limited common schools forces can do so. To educate them
bars no other child from school, and as they are Americans by
tyrth.'if born siiice annexation, we must educate them and then try
iomake them good and useful American citizens. f
Superintendent of Public Works Cooper will shortly reach
Maui for the purpose laying down lines alomf which public works
are to be pushed. Many questions which will arise are of . vital
importance to the people of Maul, who .should have some say in the
matter. To do this effeccually an organization of the citizens of
Maui should at once be arranged.

RACE DAY ON MAUI
Last Wednesday was an ideal da.v
for ractnjf, and the large crowd as
sembled at Spreekels Park i"t more
than their money's worth of tfitod
raceg with close finishes. There wus
not as larire an attendance as at the
Fonrth of Jutv races, uwinx largely
to the narrow sighted policy of the
Wilder Steamship Co., in refuting to
allow special rates for the round
trip The Elks baseball team could
not come for that reason, and many
who would have otherwise come to
set the races, remained away on that
account. Next year, the Maui Rac
ing Association will, if necessary,
charter a steamer in Honolulu and
have the matter of bringing visitors
to Maui personally supervised.
There have never been faster horses
or faster time made on the Maul
track than was witnessed on last
Wednesday, and all that Maui needs
dow is some fast running and trot
ting horses, in order to stand at the
front in racing matters, and it is
quite sure that by tho next Fourth
of July some fast ones will be
ownad on Maui. The track on Wed
nesday was in perfect condition, and
is the best track, so far an the road
bed is concerned, on the Islands. The
present management had the track
cindered prior to the July racts, and
the rssult is a hard and firm, yet
springy track which is not cut up by
use. In this connection, the manage
rnent should at once put a new coat
of cinders ou the track and have
them rolled, so that the winter raiua
will set them, thus making a track
which could always be used within an
hour after the heaviest of rains.
All of tho races tilled except the
mile heat for Japanese horses and
riders, and that failed on account of
the prowess of the mighty Yokohama
who wears bells as the fastest Jap
horse on Maui. Pua Ilima won the
honors in the first race for ponies.
This little mare belongs to John Fer
reira, manager of the fiismark Sta
bles and is the fastest pony on Maui,
so John thinks. The big purse for
free for all trotter was won by Cy
clone, the fastest heat heat being
2:23 J. Lemps contested this race
hotly making the first heat a dead
heat. Cyclone is built on ' winning
lines however, and the way he shin
ned it around the half mile track was
an eye opener to those , who thought
he would break on the turns.
The 2:30 " trot , between Denny
Healey and McKinley was the most
Interesting evetit of the. day, with
about even backing. McKinley is as
fast as Denny perhaps, but is erratic
and bard to keep on his feet. If he
could be steadied down, .it should be a
very close race betweeu the two. Ra
cine of course captured the two
purses for which he ran with ridicu
lous ease, and he will spoil our free
for all running race next year, if the
Maul boys don't get something do mi
here to meet him on equal terms.
The cowboy relay race had three
entries, and was the most exciting
and and fun making race of the day.
A Urger purse with moro entries

then the Stars struck their gait and
pulled out 5 runs before tliry could

which then stood 12 to C in their
favor. This was the last run of the
Stars. In the seventh inning the All
Mauis took one run, and in the eighth
they played up for five runs, which
tied the score at 12 to 12. Excite

and grew more intense when the
ninth inning ciosed with two goose
eggs. For tho first time in the his
