The Maui News, which begun a modest career at Wailuku four
years tigo, has patiently waited for the. time when it should emerge
from its baby clothes and take rank with tho leading papers on the
Islands. That lime has arrived und lha News has begun to grow.
New, comfoi table quarters have been socured, and an extra two
pages added, which will be continued after tne campaign closes.
A ucw, up to dalo'press has boon ordered, and if possible to get it
in time, will bo shipped on the next Nevadan. due here early in
October. This will "liable tho News to go to press later, thus
giving later news. Laie wireless dispatches will be received every
Friday from Honolulu, thus giving tt e readers of the News the
latest dispatches before going to press. Arrangements are being
perfected to receive full local news from all parts of Maui, making
this a distinctively interesting feature of the miner. While the
News has no cause to complain for lack of support, still there arc
u'.any whose names should he a-doci to our r.iailii.g list. S.:b3cril-e
for the New.
jS? 1 politics the News has always benn independent and is
.equally so today. Consequently tiis paper has never beun tier
down to the support of any man or set of men for office, but has
.unhesitatingly worked for the best men. and it will follow tho same
policy at the approaching election. Fov delegate to Congress the
News strongly favors the election of Kuhio, for good reason. Nolloy
is a calamuy .viiicli it is to be Hoped will not uelall us. 1 uilcen who
once claimed to be a staunch republican, joined the home rule
party, and then switched over to what is said to be the democracy.
None of these names seem to mean much to laukea iust so he
secures office, and any man wtio subverts his political leanings for
the sake of loaves and. fisnes or for personal utnbitiou, thereby
proves himself unworthy of office. For Territorial senators, the
names of Hayselden and Kahuna are all right. Tlny are both of
.them upright and honorable young men, in whose hands the beat
interests of Maui may well be intrusted.
The Russian land campaign so far seems to indicate thH the
policy of the Russian commanders will he to allow the Japanese to
roll the stone up hill, with the assumed, certainly that it will roll
btck down agaiu. Their-theory seems to be that they can most
easily conquer Japan by retreating to the foothills back of Mukden
If such is Kuropatkin's plan, and if he is further reinforced by one
or two hundred thousand men, it seems that Japan will have a coin
plex and stupendous problem to solve, Possibly Japan may not
be able to drive Russia entirely out of Manchui-ia this year, and
that the war may be prolonged for another year,' in which case
Japan may conclude to hold what she has and simply assume the
defensive, with Vladivostok and Port Arthur as bases of supply.
The visit of Governor Carter and other officials to Maui, for
the p-irpose of investigating conditions should lead to very beneti
cial results. Money long ago appropriated will be turned loose on
much needed work. The insufficency of the appropriation for a
courthouse and county building will become apparent; and will
doubtless lead to an additional appropriation by thenext legislature
It is to be hoped that the roads on Maui will receive the careful
consideration of Governor, and thai the day is not far distant when
stages, will run frpm Wailuku to Hana, and a carriage road around
the north end of the island will open an avenue to government land
soon to be opened and occupied between Waihee and Honolua
A Fortunote Fire.
The crv of fire startled the 8tn-
topers of Matket street ut Satur
ay afternoon about 4 o'clock and in
few mii utcs Un entire populace of
Wailuku were there as specto'ors
The fire originated in the tear of
the poi factory of Wong Luk by u
three vear old child playing wit'
matches, at le'-stlhat is the svppoi-
ion. Others attribute the. cause to
an overturned opium lamp.
For a time it looked as though not
only (he rear building but the adjoin
ing residence of Mrs. Aluli wafc
doomed, but through the heroic ef
oris of the volunteers the building
While the loss from the hre was
nominal, it only goes to show that the
necessity of a fully equipped fire A
partment, and the authorities should
not wait until thentwhre station is
built to send the necessary apparatus
Had there been fire honk available
at this fir it would not have caused
the excitement it did, and it would
lave been an easy matter to hav
saved the building.
Fortunately Hie wind, what litt
there was, was in the right quarter
to be controlled and aside from the
Aluli premises the adjoining proper
ties were not in jeodaiy.
While assistance was right at
hand and rescued the child it was
severely burned and succumbed in
few hours time.
The futhe-was also burned about
the head, arms and hands and will
probably carry the marks for life.
Too much credit cannot be given
to the deputy sheriff and police force
for the active part they took in quell
ng the tirt, nor should the work of
the Salvation Army officers, Ir
Boote and others be overlooked.

LEWERS & COOKE, Lt'd Honolulu
A Haiku correspondent writes a pitiful wail to , the Bulletin
about tne bogies which beset minor industries on Alaui; including
bugs, freights and imagined future oppression by the manufactur
ing canners of pineapples. In tho hands of men' like this! Haiku
correspondent, minor ihdustries will lunguish. But if this corres
pondent will let his land lie a few years and go oh working for
wages, keeping his eyes open in the meantime,' he will see one in
dustry after another come into paying existence, - in the hands of
men who are not afraid cf bugs and bogies. Even-tho cane plant
ers have had to fight fearful odds, but instead of sitting down and
knocking, the' met their foes bravely attd liuve won a glorious vic
tory. That is the way tho minor industries will win.
j oke and Ktiiue seem to be the choice of tho home rulers for
tjhe Maui senatorship. One is a good home ruler and tho other a
good democrat, but followiug the fable of1 the team of thfc'ox. and
Che ass, they may pull well together, even if they prove a litule slow.
The only disturbing element in- this pleasant condition ' of affairs
however is that honest William White of Lahaina may become wise
to the situation artd put his-linger in the pie, in which case the
chances largely ere that he will pull out the proverbial plum.
It seems certa'n now that the next U. S. congress will be
largely republican, and it is sure beyond doubt that Kuhio will be
our next delegate. In that case it would greatly strengthen Kuhio's
hands to be able to point out to his brothers in congress that the
Islands had gone solid republican this fall. It will not be a bad klea
for Maui to lead off in this direction.
JjJ The Wailuku Improvement' Association ii accumulating much
undone work that needs immediate attention.. A special meeting
should be called at an early date, aud the sub-torn mittees should
beealled upon f9r,ropots. The cemetery, th tish market, the fire
department mid other matters should be rushed along.
The convention and other attract
ions brought many visitors to Laha
