Rubber is everv veur beoominsr a more valuable and needed

staple, and those countries which can successfully raise a mer
chanttible irticle of rubber have briirht futures. There is a belt of
land nearly thirty miles in length and from one to three miles in width
along the east Maui coast, in the wet belt, and there is no doubt
but tnut much of this laud is peculiarly, adapted to the raising of
rubber A ten acre grove of rubber trees would after'the end of
.the tifth veur yield an ample income for any family and will in
creHse in value f mm year to year- lor an indefinite period. If a com
lany or companies should organize and each secure by purchase or
Jong lease, from 500 or 1.000 acres of this rubber land, a series of
industries would be organized on Maui which w6uld be ir.ore certain
And profitable than cane. And bananas could be raised between the
trees for several years at a profit. The pioneers in this industry
will taako fortunes and the land is lyin idle', awaiting them.
The current year will prove a pivotal one iu the history of the
.Islands For the past four years a crisis has been impending and
its storm center will reach and Dass us before the year is over
The Islands are all right, and the hard times complained of ar
only relative, as compared with real hard times which occur in the
States. The Vieoble ef the Islands should hoi feel discouraged, for
before the end of this year thb pendulum will begin to swing th
tier way, bringing us a long period of permanent prosperity
This Drosueritv will tlenerid not alone on suyar. but also on the
- i -
many new industries now developing.

j3 A few cranks lire-still insisting that the Improvement assi
riation of Wailuku District is a vast and fearsome political machine
devised to crusn somebody or other. Sensible men know better
and any of the other kind who were present at the meeting at Wai
Juku on Thursday evening would have received a little light on the
subject. Lahaina understands the matter, and has organized
local Association to look after its local wants, Makawao under
stands and will organize wnen the time is ripe. As soon as the
real purposes of such Associations are understood, it is believed
that the cranks will subside..
jS The democratic paftv on the Islands is now for the first time
fairly launched; and true to traditions, nas beeun by doing the
wrong thingat the right time, by Instructing the St. Louis dele
gates for Hearst. It may be that Hearst may receive the nomina
tion at St. Louis, and it may further be that he may be elected
president of the United Stales, but at present there is but fain
grounds for either belief. Still there is but one man in the United
States today who could. possibly defeat Roosevelt, and that man i
Hearst, and that Heaast can defeat Roosevelt is a very remote con
their presence in your council-.

1Q4 EJngland has now gone too far to retreat In tho Thibetan mat
ter, and Russia will have her hands too full for the next two or
three years, to interfere in the matter. The isolation of the British
expedition will make it necessary to at once forward a rescueini?
orce, and the final result will be a protectorate and final reduction to
British colonial possession of the whohr of Thibet. Just what Great
Britain wants with this bleak possession is dubious, but .that it will
become a Brirish colony in the near future is already written, and
Russia can be reckoned with afterwards.
The time has come when the territorial government must seg
regate government lands, leased or unleased, and with a due re
gard to Bugar interests, foster the development of new industries
which will open a field to capital and men from the States. On each
.of tha Islands are large tracts of land available for the successful
production of rubber, pineapples, bananas, sisal and vanila beans.
, Money, brains and brawn are seeking ju6t such investments us are
offered heiei and it is the sacred duty of our territorial officials to
' foster a movement in this direction.
Q The last will of Peter the Great, which has been frequently
published, minutely and in detail outlined the plan by which Russia
was to proceed in the subjugation of the wh,ole civilied world. So
far as the division of Poland was concerned, the . will of the great
Czar was carried oul, but by that time events, and conditions had
changed that no further clause has been complied with, and in
stead of at present being masters ot Europe, the Slavs are being
drubbed by an uuthought of nation, who were regarded as savages
by the great Czar.
Hawaii Is takiug the lead in the matter of raising bananas, for
the coast market, and already sees success, although it may take
several years to get the proposition on a solid and paying basis.
Maui can none too soou follow suit in the matter. If the industry
were started on the available waste lands on central Maui, the, big
steamers from Kahulul would safely and promptly laud thousand
of bunches from Maui in San Francisco every month.
f0 The iiaiQ seems to be coming nearer when organized labor will
rely on brute force to carry its point. This would be a dread men
ace to American institutions, if it were not for the escape valve of
popular elections, where the will of the majority can be enforced
by the ballot box, rather than by sticks ot dynamite, But the Crip
ple Creek happenjngs ut present are painfully interesting to those
yo desire a peadoful outcome.
