for pineapple culture, and this land cm probably be secured on
long lease at reasonable terms. If a company were incorporated
with $100,000 of capital stock, and it I, We and competent brard of
directors secured, such an enterprise ifuld h inaugurated at Uu!o
and developed into a permanent and p. wing enterprise. No pro
ranters' fees would be needed, and evet '.v subscriber to the stuck
would get m on the ground floor, Five .!0 per cent assessments,
levied annually.would plant at least 1.000 ncrrs and equip the plant
with machinery to can the output. In eighteen months from planting
the first crop would be ready for canning. nd in live years seed
could be raised from a small acreage to s-e-i the entire urea This
is a chance which the people of Miiui should not let slip-
5J As a cold business proposition the Advertiser is exactlv rigrt
when it suggests the choice of one of our brightest white tnn as
delegate to congress, not that Deleante Kuhio is not in a sense cow
potent.but rather that men much more m could be found, which Del
egate Kuhio himself would probably ndtuit lint then the Advor
ttsar must remember Ihis.that a largepuri of our voting population
are Hawaiians, and any effort to secJiv tt.e r gut man will raise the
senseless but effective cry "f race prejudice ugamst the Hawaiians.
Consequently under the circumstances it would b better to accept
ICuhio now, as the best Hawaiian available, ana hope for the day
of better things by and by. Half a dozen men, w.l h A.G.. M. Robert
sou at their head could be selected, either one of whom is bv imture
and education much better fitted to obtain for the Territory what
it needs at the hands of congress, but under present conditions we
will perhaps have to be content with Kuhio.
I ; While the News is always ready to support the police so long
as they are in the proper line of their duty, yet it occasionally hap
I pans that their presence is little short of insulting espionage. For
t instance, the lady members of K. of P. families gave a dance on
f . Saturday evening.which was attended only by the most respectable
l . element of our society, and there was no more need of police than
at a church service Yet the affair was under strict police sur
veillance during tne wbole evening, one officer placing himself at
the entrance iloor, with his star conspicuously shining into the
dancing hall. Possibly a policeman might have been needed out
side on the street, within easy call. But for police to force their
presence where they are neither needed or wanted is becoming ob
noxious in Wailuku as well as in Honolulu. Sheriff Baldwin and
Deputy Sheriff Saffery should take this matter under consideration
and properly instruct their officers.
J3 Hilo horsemen now take the proper view oi the matter and ad
mit that Maui is faily entitled co the Fourth of July as race day,
just as Honolulu is entitled to June 11 It is now up to Hilo to
select New Year's Day and Kauai to arrange for August 11, thus
giving a four station circuit of races for the Islands.We need a leg
ular race circuit, so that horses from all the Islands could meet
once a year on each Island. If the Honolulu Tockey Club will take
up the matter, the Associations on the other Islands would doubt
les gtadly co operate in establishing a race circuit.
5 While the seizure of foreign , vessels laden with contraband
! goods for Japan by Russian cruisers is not in itself casus belli,
t Still neither Germany nor Great Britain can bear any' such pro-
f ceedinjs on the part of Russia with the proper degree of compo-
sure. There is no doubt but there will be a mobilization of Brit-
, ish and German fleets, and while the seizure of contraband laden
I vessels will not be the declared cause of war, still if uch seizures
continue, a convenient excuse for
X come to the surface. '
J5 The system of rural free delivery of mail which prevails in
the States might well be introduced on Maui. There are too few
i postoffices here as it is, and there is a large population on central
Maui, ranging from Maalaea Bay
I Makena who are practically denied their mail until it becomes so
I stale as to be weary, flat and
partment should be petitioned to
which should embrace all the settled portions of central Maui, and
this should be done at once. . ' 1
jy There is no doubt but that Parker's nomination will prove
much more popular than was at Irst supposed. Parker is eminent
ly a safe and conservative men of whom the great financial bodies
throughout the United States, including Wall Street and the in
dustrial interests will not feel afraid. This can hardly be said of
Roosevelt, who is exciting some
unexpected strength to tho Parker campaign.
Sjg If Hawaii were represented in congress, by one of our ablest
? men, say for instance. Aleck Robertson, W. O. Smith, Judge Hum-
phrey or some man of like mental caliber, there would be some
V hope that Congress would be galvanized into action in the matter
of strengtkening our coast defences so as to render Hawaii nei a

Ten years ago Judge Copp was so
thoroughly convinced tht cbftee
wopld grow in thr Kokomo district of
Makawao that he devoted fifteen
acres of his home property to the
berry. His original supply was from
half grown tree believed to have
come from the Azores, but latter
abondoned. A news representative
was shown over the plantation and
saw the effect of trimming of the trees
is half grown state, but which were

trimmed which measure from seven
to ten feet high.
Ju:'ge Copp believes that the trim
ming lias the same effect on the trees
as the bleeding of n person, ie it
weakens the trees and consequently
retards the growth.
The entire crop, outside of a few
families which ai'e supplied, Is shipp
ed in the parchment to the Hilo Cof
fee Mill. Judge Copp had also tried
pineapple raising but finds that onlv
