5 , While the United States as a whole was yet a virgin forest, with
only a belt of settlements ahmg tho Atlanl'c Coast, a grand high
way was planned and built for nnn.y hunlrod of tnilos duo west
In rough Iho unbroken forest.. ftiVi-3 swarmed along this high
way. lining it on both side for its onti re length vith happy and
prosperous homes. Tne sumo conditions exist on Maui, undue
ure only awaiting good roads arpjud East and West Maui to see a
laro increase in our industrial and agricultural output. The
government is now fully awake to our needs, und a competent en
gineer should at onca bo sent hero In entirely renovate our public
roads, commencing at Wailoku, L-.iii.una and Kahuluj, aud the
money should be forthcoming to entirely reconstruct our road
system by regrading, widening and macadamizing all our roads,
so that in future all our road money will not be eaten up in the re
pair of badly built roads. Although it might cost more of present
outlay at first, it would prove cheaper in the long run, and gfve us
gocll roads in the bargain.
fg Some time since the News editorially hinted that there is an
over production of meat on tho Islands, and tho Advertiser after
wards took up and discussed the proposition. 'J ha matter Has
now been taken up by the Hawaiian Stock Breeders' Association,
whose Secretary. A. F. Judd states lo the Advertiser that the
meeting of Stock Breeders' Association to behehl on November 14
do not havo for discussion the suhjoct that there really is an "over
production of beef and mutton," but rather the question is to be
considered of whether there is actually any overproduction. Gra
ziers are divided in opinion on this question, uud- Secretary Judd
says that an effort is now being mace to secure statements of ex
act data from every ranchman in the Territory. It may bo, as
one prominent ranchman suggests that it is not overproduction,
but rather competition between good beef and poor beef that
causes the trouble. In either event a marked imporvemont may
be expected in the quality of Island beef which fiuds its way to
the local retail markets.
JSR The work being done in some of tho school of the outlying
districts on Maui for the past few years has simply reached tin
limit. The department of Public Instruction is doing what it can
to educate and train te3cher3 in modern and scientific methyls,
and the teachers return to their work after summer school closes
and try to apply these methods, but get no results. It is no exag
1 geration to say that there are many young men on Maui jast old
enough to register as voters, who have spent sevoral years at
school, and still if challenged, could not intelligently read one para.
itrupn of the constituiion. and would iuik.j only u fmjWu effort in i
First Reader. A grievous fault. I'm. 4 simowh..'iv, and as between
the teacher and the pupil tho News lays the blame nt tho door of
the former. Give us better teachers.
& The moral to be drawn from the cowardly assassination of
Eddie Damon is that more strict espionage and more stringent
punishment is needed in Honolulu to repress imported criminals

do just what ought to be doue in case they encounter u Porto Ki
can after nightfall.
C? There are strong and hopeful signs on Maui that 'with the
disintegration of the old home rule party, thoughtful Hawuiians
are becoming convinced that to follow Billy White and Kalauoltala

There is no place in the United States where a thorough En

needed as on the Islands. Self government is lodged in the hundfi
