5 It took four years of war and forty years of peace to demon
strate to tr.e United States that the ideas represented by the re
publican party contained the real germs of progress and prosperity,
and t he only use of the democratic party in the Stat'es now is simply
to serve as a bogey to keep republicans in the straight and narrow
path. And when thty diverge from it a democratic victory tfeii-
craliy follows. It rrore true ;n the Islands this f.ill than it is in
the United States, that the republican party is our only salvation,
and that another home rule victory will simply drive us to the wall
The News, belonging to no political party, feels free to discuss this
matter without passion or prejudice, and to any disinterested man
the situation is so plain tha.t he who runs may read that a repub
lican victory will set us on oar feet again, while a clean home rule
sweep would mean more of the serai-anarchy which has prevailed
here. A democratic party may some time be needed on the Islands
to keep the majority in healthy check, but that time has not yet
3 In Wailuku, as in most ether small towns, there exists a blight
"which is quite as destructive to growth as is the cottony cushion
scale to a young orange tree. The trouble with small communities
is that there is a natural tendency to form cliques which destroy
harmonious action, '.this fungus exists in a mild form only in our
beautiful little town, and if prompt action is taken now it can be
eradicated, and Wailuku will continue to grow and flourish as long
as her citizens all work together in kindly harmony. The News
strongly urces that our citizens all cultivate m their hearts akind
ly feeling of harmony which will ride down race and class distinc
lions, destroy germs ot wealth-pride, and bring every man, no

Many parts of California are quite as susceptible to the rav
ages of insect pests as the Islands are, but California does not ad
mit that the pests are an insuperable obstacle to small farming
All the brains and, skill needed are employed to remove these pests
and stringent laws are passed compelling the owners of land tode
stroy these insects, or failing to do so, the authorities will destroy
them and charge the expense to the land owner. The Japanese bee
tie is now ravaging parts of Maui, and yet, as will be seen by the
article from the pen of Brother Matthias on the first page of this
issue, the Japanese beetle is an easy foe to vanquish. Deputy
Sheriff H. R. Hitchcock of Molokai reports that the lantt.na is being
eradicated by the blight and the Mexican fly imported by Koebele
The moral of all this is that the .foes of small farming, including
the Bulletin, can be eradicated, and that new andbugless-indlistrios
are finding their way to the Islands. Let our next legislature take
up the matter. ' . " " ... -
In this week's News will be found a communication from Mr.
D. Bi'Murdock, a gentleman of ripe experience in the matter of
. pineapple' culture and manufacture, in reply to a recent wail of a
soi-disante "Maui Farmer-" Maui is to bo heartily congratulated
that men like Mr.'Murdock are interesting themselves in her miuor
industries. The "pipe-dreams" in which this paper has often been
at-qused of indulging, relative to our minor industries, are proving
themselves to be successful realities, and the News stands ready
"to point out other industries, as soon-perhaps . sooner,-than they
can be grasped in their full meaning by men who have slept their
lives away on Maui.
Mr. Atherton of Kula chides the Advertiser for encouraging
minor industries on Maui. It is true that the old time industries
in Kula are dead. The soil has washed away on the corn laud, and
potato crop has succeeded potato crop year after year until the
tired soil has sought revenge by blighting the crop. Now, if Mr,
Atherton will ride across country to the Haiku Cannery he will dis
cover that a new industry has sprung up on Maui which more than
justifies the Advertiser in advocating minor industries throughout
Maul's Small Farmer.
Editor ''Maui News ,
I have been interested in the latter
printed in the Honolulu "Bulletin
written by a "Maui Farmer" resid-
ng at Haiku, on the subject of small
farming but more particularly his
reference to the growing of pine
apples and the operations of the fac
tory at Haiku. It seems to me that
the remarks of the "Maui Farmer"
betray the fact that this "worker for
wages" is not of the right calibre to
make a successful small farmer,
otherwise why should he condemn the
pineapple proposition before even
making inquiry of the represent
tives of the Haiku Fruit & Packing
Co. as to what inducements and
guarantees they 'are wiWrc to offer
for the encouragemeut f independent
It is certainly a part of the policy
of the company to promote the culti
vation of piues by individual growers
in the district, the officers of the
company believing that the margin
of pi ofi t is sufficient to allow a satis
factory return to the cultlTator for
his fruit as well as to the company
for packing same. The "Maui Farm
er's" idea that the supply of pines
will exceed the capacity of the fac
tory within a few years is too pleas
ant a prospect for the H. F. & P.
Co. to contemplate. I should be in
terested to know what calculations
led him to this conclusion. The pres
ent capacity of our factory is 10,000
pines per day and by the expenditure
of a few thousand dollars this capa
city could be increased three fold.
Send along a million piuus and we can
take care of them.
Should anyone wish to give the
matter of pineapple cultivation care
ful consideration and wish to know
definitely what terms the Haiku Fruit
& Packing Co. Ltd. will offer, I would
advise them to consult with the man
auer Mr. Wm. A. Baldwin who will
gladly supply information.
It seems to me that the cultivation
of pines offers as fair a field to tbe
small farmer as any other. The labor
of cultivating is comparatively light
aud a man with the assistance of two
or three children could -take care of
a large patch of pines.. Then too the
pines are not at all seriously affected
.lack'of raiu a considerable period, will
not of necessity result in a heavy loss.
My advice to a small farmer would
be, make sure in the first place that
the soil is suitable for piues, then
when satisfied on that point, go ahead
and get plants set out as fast as pos
sible. With fair prices guaranteed
by the packer he can be pretty sure
of satisfactory results when his crop
After riding through the country
lying between Haiku and nuelo with
in the last few days, I could not help
but think of the thousands ot acres of
land that are probably suitable for
pines aud are apparently put to little
other use at present. If experiments
could be instituted to ascertain the
exact nature of the laud, and if plots
of land could be obtained at a mod
erate rental, what a field this would
throw open to some of the thrifty
farmers that we should like to see
settled about here.

Mr. Cecil Brown is making one great big mistake in his prop
csition to run independent. No man has a right to go before any
couventionand ask for a nomination, unless he is willing to abide
the decision of the convention. Mr, Brown should either have re
mained out of the convention, or else should be willing to take his
medicine like a little man. Possibly a better ticket might have
been named but Mr. Brown should remember that Achilles con
tended himself with sulking in his tent, rather then joining the
It came somewhat aa a shock to read in a recent Honolulu
paper that our. Chinese citizens are seriously discussing the pro
position of demanding a Chinaman in the Territorial legislature,
but problems of this nature are sure to arise here, and it would be
well for our ablest minds to think out in advance the wisest policy
to be pursued in the matter.

If there is one enterprise on earth
that a "quitter" should leave'severc
ly alone it is advertising. To make
a success of advertising one must be
prepared to stick to it like a barn
cle on the boat's bottom. He should
know before ho begius it that be
must spend money.
Somebody must tell him, also, that
he cannot hope to reap results com
mensurate with his expenditure early
in the game. Advertising does not
jerk; it pulls. It begius very gently
at first, but the pull is vteady. It la
creases day by day and year by year
until it exerts an irresistible power.
