J The chapter of Hawaiian history of the nineteenth century
which tellsof the earnest desire and the struggles of a whole nation
to avail themselves of the new knowledge brought to tlieui from
a higher civilization is a potent prophecy of what their race will still
achieve under the benign influence of a higher civilization. Them
selves the Argonauts of the Polynesian race, who in tiny canoes
star-directed, made their way thousands of miles eutstward ami
found homes on the shores of anew aud uninhabited Eden in Hawaii
nei, they represent progression, and while thair former environ
ments have not gifted taem witn the sterner virtues of the Saxon
race.vet just as they learned the rudiments of a simpler education,
so they will in time learn and practice tiiestirling virtues of thrift,
integrity and sobrietv. True, thev are but children yet,, as com
pared with races which for u thousand years have basked in the
light and warmth of earth's best civilization, but the Ilawaiiatis s
a race are highly assimilative, and their future is rich with 'prom
ise of high attainments.
5 News from the seat of war is daily increasing in interest, as
the main forces of Janan penetrate Manchuria. The Russians boast
of what they are waiting to do, but it seems strange that, if they
really hoped to defeat Japan in Manchuria, they did not attempt at
least to hold Newchwang. The belief is gaining ground that Kuio
patkin will not give open battle in equal numbers to the Japanese,
but tnat he will retreat from point to point leaving utter destruc
tion behind him. In that case J pan has but "one hard task, and
that is to reduce Port Arthur, a task which has, been found practi
cally impossible by their navy. Two alternatives are left.to storm
or to starve them, and the latter may be found easier in the long
run. Still the Japanese will not wait for starvation to do their
It work, intrepid valor and fearful loss of life can accomplish it
fjt The day of small things is upon us, and silLouetted distinctly
against the eastern sky of that new day are the fat and toothsome
hams of the Hilo frog. In a voice half way beSween that of a bull
and a bulbul, the Hilo rana eschlenta is demanding the attention of
. epicures.and its claims should not remain unheeded. Hilo has v ork
ied hard to achieve the reputation of being an up-to-date town, and
has taken a step In that direction, but its lustro will soon tarnish
, if its citizens do not in the very near future erect a cannery and
conserve fat and juicy frog legs for the market on Hawaii and the
mainland. A hogshead oflive frogs would only make a weekly
mouthful for Maui, and the other islands would want as much.
Please see that our plate is heaped with white, crispy frog legs
every Sunday morning, Hilo.
. O It is now admitted that the sum of 85,000 is insufficient to
build the needed court house and county building in Wailuku, and
.it is fooljsh to spend that sum and then fail to accomplish what we
sneedf The If 50,000 appropriated for the Kahului wharf is, under
changed conditions at Kahului, now rendered a needless expense,
and in justice this appropriation should be spent on Maui. And it
is to the people of Maui to take up the matter and see to it that
such amount of the 850,000 wharf appropriation as may be needed
is applied to the construction of a proper county building in Wai
luku and that the residue be applied to the construction of much
'needed wharf facilities at Lahaina. If Wailuku and Lahaina join
hands on the proposition, it will be done.
5 tobacco culture in the Islands can be successful anywhere,
it will only be where there is plenty of moisture, because auy to
bacco grown in the dry districts, even with plenty of water ,for ir
rigation, will.be thinned-leafed and acrid. Successful tobacco cul
ture in Virginia and Kentucky depends chiefly on the presence
of heavy night dews which thicken and give body to the leaf. Still
in the more rainy areas of the Islands, spots will doubtless be found
where a marketable article of tobacco may be raised.
55 With the Increase in the price of sugar on coast, which will
.add millions to the assets of the Islands, there may be some in
clination to overlook the smaller industries.' This should not be
permitted however, and with our renewed prosperity, extra efforts
should be put forth to push our minor productions, notably bana
.nas and pineapples. Both of these products can be raised abund
antly at a profit, and will one day form a' very important .element
of our prosperity.
5j The fact that Russia has declared all Siberian ports open is" a
rich piece of news. Hot the day of closed ports in the orient has

of patient work. Koine was not built

not be obtained in a year. It is a
