cheap fares is. oue of the most tempting baits which we ban offer to
the shoal of tousists. which svarpi on the Pacific Coast and look
longingly westward. Tlere are millions of dollars tying idle in the
glands awaiting the appearance of gilt edged investments. There
is :i larger travel from the Islands than the present Meaner ser

Cheap excursion rates to visit the Islands either Singly dr in large

low passenger rates, would be loaded down with excursionists.
Hero is an ideal investment. Let a company be incorporated with
one million dollars of capital, to charter and run three such steam

and in one year such a company would be one of the solidest insti
tutions of iho Islands.
$$ Developments in the Russo-Japanese war are rapidly being
made, and u very inteiesting and exciting condition has now arisen,
The Japanese fleet has unquestionably bottled up Port Arthur, and
the Japanese army holds Liaotong peninsula, so that is now but a
question of time until Port Arthur will be in the hands of the Jap
anese. The next move of Japan must necessarily be up the penin
sula toward Mukden and Harbin. Russia must for Very shame's
6ake make one more stand, possibly at Mukden or at the least at
Harbin, but it seems more than certain that the Russian generals
and suldiers are not equal in ability und courage to those of Japan,
and that the Japanese army will reach and occupy Harbin just as
6u rely as it attempts to do so, and Vladivostok as well as Port
Arthur must fall. The masses of Russia, whose hearts are not in
the war arc? being wrought up, and a revolution in Russia is quite
certain to follow the fall of Vladivostok. Grand Duke Vladimar
stands ready to take advantage of any such revolutionary move

party, and the event of one was followed by the event of the other,
just as the night is followed by the day. And a study of the disin
tegration of the old whig party in the United States after the death
of Henry Clay throws an interesting light on what is now to hap
pen in Island politics. There can be but two parties here, the re
publican and the democratic There is practically no Issue before
us save that of loaves and fishes, and the republican party is at
present in undisturbed and undisturbable possession of the com
missary, If no vital issues arise the republican leaders can with
k little judicious management land the bulk of the home rulers in
their party. A wise, generous and liberal policy on" their part will
do the work nicely.
J$ A sMidy of the respective claims of Parker and Hearst for the
democratic nomination for president leads oue deep into the heart
:o popirlarAmericau politics, Parker represents the dead issues
while Hearst represents vital and burning ones. The mass of voters
in the United States belong to the laboring classes. The ere ition of
anonster trusts by capital and of striking labor unions by labor have
...cut a clearer and stronger line division between these two classes.
The republican party being one of material progress is backed by
capital seeking investment, The democratic party is largely drift'
ing into opposition to all that republicanism means, and its Man
churiii is the vote of the laborer. If Hearst 6hould receive the nom
ination on a labor platform, he will have a fighting chance to beat
The silly idea, fomented by outsiders, that the organization of
the citizens of Wailuku District for the purpose of promoting the
moral, aesthetic, social and material interests of our town and dis
trict is in any sense a close corporation, has been fully dispelled,
and every citizen whose influence is for good is joining the Im.:
provement Association. Now lei Lahaina District and Makawao
, District emulate cur example and form like ' Associations. Then
when any question of general interest arises, a congress of the sev
eral Associations can handle it to the mutual interest of all.
Qj The election of delegate to congress is not far off now, and the
News is, for want of a stronger, man, rather in favor of the reelec
tion of Delegate Kuhio. It is solemnly true that there are white men
on the Islands, who if elected could do more for the Islands than
any Hawaiian could do.not even
Iiawaiians.havmg the majority
represented by a Hawaiian, therefore Delegate Kuhio is the man'.
JfJS The News proudly exhibits one convert to its "minor indus
try" campaign. A young gentleman from Honolulu visited Wai
luku last week, and told the News man that, having read and di
gested the News doctrine, he bought a few acres at Wahiawa Col
ony and set it out to pine apples. His average is now coming into
bearing, three tons per acre, atlj cents per pound, qj: $90 per
Acre.' Go at it, young maa.

An Old Superstition.
The practice of consulting Script
ure as a book of fate was generally
condemned by the church. A council
at Vannes pronounced against it in
461 A. D. So did one at Agde in 506
and one at Auxerre'in 5S5. Charles
the Great forbade it in his capitula
ries, and so did P,ope Gregory II.
Nevertheless curiosity as to the fu
ture was so strong in men s minus
that the custom continued.
An oao circumstance is that the
athedrai chapter at' Orleans in 1146,
appealed to a prognostic of this sort'
in a supplication addressed by them
o pope 4texanaer ill. against their
bishop. At the consecration, when
the gospel was'openeu above hs head,
the finger of the deacon rested upon
tjhe words, "And he left the linen
cloth and fled from them naked."
This was a token that the bishop Elias
was to be turned out of his see.
The practice of observing the book
when opened oyer the head of a prel
ate at his consecration was very com
mon. It was thought that a sure au
gury could thence be drawn as to
what sort of a bishop he could prove.
It may seem a trifle odd, but the
United States consul at Vladivostok,
that Siberian station that is frozen up
for about a half year at a time, is a
negro.He is Richard T. Greener. Mr.
Greener is described as one of the best
types of his race and has proven a
competent, cautious and safe repre
sentative. He was born in Philadel
phia sixty years ago and was the first
negro to. graduate from Harvard
College. He secured his education at
the gramroer schools of Cambridge,
Mass.; Qberlin Preparatory School,
in Ohio, an4 graduated from Philips
Academy and. Harvard College. For
four years he filled the chair of met'
aphysics. and logip in the University
of South Carolina. He was dean of
the law department of the Howard
University, at Washington, from 187JJ
to 1881, President McKinley ap
pointed him commercial agent at
Vladivostok in 188.8, He was made a
very satisfactory record, and while
United States interests in that port
are not very large they have been
fully protected bv him.
Why Kitty is "Puss.'t
A great many years ago the people
of Egypt, who had many idols, wor
shipped the cat among others. They
thought she was like the moon. Sq
they made an idol with a cat's bead
and named it Pasht. The same name
they gave to the moon, for the word
means "the face of the moon." The
word has been changed to "Pas"iand
"Pus" and has come" at last to be
"Puss," the name the most of us give
to the cat. Boston Transoipt.
