which rtiuls and mangles the hand kindly extended to It with fond.
Last week the News suggested that $10,000 of the appropriation
for iviliuihi Harbor be diverted to th uses of Lahainu, wharf, in
adaiii hi to tne amount already appropriated for Lahaina i writer
to ti v Unlit-tin who disgraces the fair uame and fauiuof Lahaina by
usiiiy tin; word Lahaina for a nom-de-plume, on reading this su
gesiion of the Nkw.s, fell into a compound tit of rabies and frothed
a'., tne mouth m a quarter column article. At tirst one is puzzled to
lea in win such a proposed diversiou of the Kuh'ului Harbor appro
pnaiioii to Lahaina should bo so vindictively assailed. But the tad
o id of i ln an icle, like that of i lightning"bug, throws light on the
Whole i.t t i.H articlo. It is the county seat and the thought of the
$J5,0U0 appropriation for the Wailuku courtbou&e which maddened
"Lui.aiua,." Tne brilliant peror :tiou of the writer almost redeems
him iiowever.for iiis tit of anger changing to eiithu3itsin,he invites
tne iNcws mail to cume to Lahaina on electric cars and behold the
ocean sU taiiers daily leaving that port for Texas. Is there u bug
h'uh.e in Lahaina?

"with the burden of tne news of wonderful material progress a-ud
growth in every city and town throughout tne whole of tne United
Stales. And even couutry places and country villages, witu few
exceptions are sharing in the prevailing growth and prosperity
Mew York city which now is and perhaps always will be tne lead
ing city in the United States, is making a monstrous growth, aud
lias practically superseded London as the real money center, ban
Francisco, which lay asleep on its sea washed hills for many years,
has now waked up and is starling in on an era of growth which
will not stop until it ranks third in bize of the mainland cities, if
not second, us Chicago will prove its only rival. Investments in
Sati Francisco real estate will prove richer investments to patient
waiters tuan all its early gold mines. Hawuii is still asleep, but
ten years from now will find mainland prosperity rightin Honolulu.
5j The Japanese, having dislodged the Russians from the banks
ojl the Yalu, have skillfully transferred the entire theatre of the war
to Liaotonsr peninsula which they have securely mastered by the
capture of the Kinchow aud Daluey. Port Artnur is tnus entirely
cut off from aid by land as well as by sea, and will be reduced to
Japanese possession in the near future. In the meantime, the only
plan of procedure left open for the Russians is to assume the offen
sive and attempt to drive the Japanese olf the Liaotontr peninsula.
And with the Japanese strongly intreuched, it is douotful if Russia
commands enough troop in Manchuria to etfec; this object.
8i It is a natural and perhaps justifiable boast that -British con
trol of provinces is superior that of American control. It is true
possibly also tnat Hawaii was better off before annexation, so far as
local government was concerned, and that there might be a better
form of government for the Phihpiues than that now p re vailing.
But in one thing every new American acquisition will gain infinite
ly more than it wull lose, for it will in theend gain self government.
And no gift can be so precious to any people as to be allowed to
pass through the experience of governing themselves uccording to
the will of the majority,
jg Much conjecture is being indulged in as to the future of our
new school building and the work which will be done there. Some
are pessimistic, and claim that it will simply remain a Japanese
kindergarden, but those who are farsighted can see a very differ
ent and much brighter f uture for it. Our new school will prove the
' crown jewel in Wailuku's diadem, and the day is coming when uu
derft jvise and able corps of teachers, the work done at our Wai
luku school will rank with that iu mainland cities of much larger
size. Nothing better has ever coino to Wailuku than our new
school building. -
5 If indications are of any value so far as Maui is concerned, it
may be deemed certain that affiliation will be completely effected
between the democrats and home rulers, the latter of whom will drop
their name and come out in a body as democrats. Kalauokalani Sr.
fought the proposition on Maui recently but without avail, and it is
almost sure that it will be a line-up between republicans and demo
crats at our next local election.
y No true American can read General Hart well's oration deliver
ed at Honolulu on Memorial Day without becoming a better man
and a better American. Since the adoption of the constitution, it
self an experiment, our government has been a series of ex
periments, but they have all been fouuded on the proposition that
- the poople are to rule the people, and in this we have made no mis
takes that should be wiped out.
f5 There are a number of spots on Maui, some of them hundreds
of acres in extent where the pineapple grows to perfection, and
some of thest tracts could be secured at a low figure. Each of the
tracts oilers golden opportunities for incorporated companies to

"I wot, Id like to see more of them
go into growing pineapples." said the
Early Iiiser. "There would he two
markets for the product; San Fran

"The canning industry will grow

grown." said the Cheerful Liar "and
