COUNTY ACT 'TO1 BE FIRST
Legislature Will' Take Up
Cou;:ty Plan First. Sunday
Law Very Important Issue.
The following is clippt-.d from the
Chicago Evening Post cf Novembor
2, and is a portion of an address by
associate editor Charles L. Rhodes
of the Hawaiian Star. The address
was Riven at an informal talk before
the Press Club of which Mr. Rhodes
was a former member:
"What Hawaii would like the
United States government to do is
not to relieve her from any of her
just shares of tho burdens of federal
taxation, but to begin at once and
carry on in an efficient way those
plans lnr tho improvement of Pearl
Harbor, tho creation of a great
naval base and the fortificaiion of
tho islands, for which plam have
already beer, approved by the War
and Navy departments, and in effect,
too, by Congress. Iu this way a
part cf tho $1,500,000 which is an
nually draining; her icsorces would
be turned back to benefit tho island.
"Hawaii offcres to tho peoplo of
tho remainder of the United States
a climate and a country unequalled
for those seeking rest and reorea
tion. Uor trade winds ;and sunny
skies mutually compliment each
other and mako Hawaii tho ideal
spot for invalids, except those suffer
ing from tuberculosis, -.for whom
unhappily it offers little hope,
"We have educational institutions
of excellent quality In all but the
highest departments, nnf. the time is
coming when Hawaii will bo resorted
to by hundreds as the place for tho
educattoti of youth for whom the
rigors of a northern clirrate are tco
severe. Outdoor athletics can be
engaged in tho year round, and
thero aro no people among whom
outdoor athletics aro moro whole
somely cultivated than among Ihe
peoplo of the Hawaiian Islands.
"Hawaii has natural resources to
support a population of 1,00,000
In comfort and happiness.
"Our soil and climate will produce
all the products ot the tropical and
many of those of the temperate
regions. Sugar is uow, and Is likely
to remain, our staple industry, and
in its production applied scieneo in
chemistry, mechanics, civil, hy
draulic and mechanical engineering
has been developed further than in
any othor sugar producing country
In the world. We havo tho largest
sugar plantations in ihe world,
and have achieved tho highest pro
duction per acre In the world.
"Sugar is now and seemingly al
ways will bo produced most econom
ically on large plantations under ono
management, becauso it involves a
manufacturing process as well as
highly developed agriculture and
lurge irrigation plants. A modern
sugar mill sufficient for a planta
tion in Hawaii costs approximately
thrco quarters of a million dollars.
There aro many other staple pro
ducts! for which large plants aro not
required, such as Sisal banana grow
ing and pineapple culture."
Mr. Rhodes concluded his talk with
a historical sketch of tho islands,
covering the period of 125 years since
their discovery by Captain James
Cook in 1778. Members of the club
asked many questions which elicited
County Act First.
Republicans aro planning to give
tho county bill the right of way again
In the legislature. It is recognized
that so many other possible laws
depend on it that it wjll be necessary
to get it out of the way before pro
ceeding rr.ucli general legislation. It
is probable that the bill will bo the
first one introduced nnd that its con
sideration will bo taken up at once.
Among th matters which are de
pendent upen tho county bill is that
if Sunday legislation. If a co'itnty sys
tem goes into effect, the malter cf
rules for obst rvance of Sunday will be
one for the counties themselves, in the
opinion of some members. Under tbe
present system, all tho outside mem
bers have a say as to what shall be
the rule for a Honolulu Sunday, and
this is not regarded as proper by the
Honolulu men, who think that Sunday
legislation should be a mat ter for local
consideration. Honolulu may want
different rules'from thoso wanted in
Hilo, or in some of tho other country
Members of the County Commission
aro working cn the draft of an act
and will have ono ready to be offered
to tho legislature before the session'
The Japanese Women onU the
So great is the enthusiasm of the
Japanc se in the war.says The Delink
ator for August, thafc-tho women of
every class, from tho Empress to the
lowest, are giving not. ouly of their
wealth and incomes but, of their per
sonal efforts to make easier the lot of
tho soldiers In tho fields. Everyone is
fired with tho ambition to have a
part in the success of Japanese arms,
and, as a result, many associations
have sprung into existence with tho
pnrpese ot providing for the soldiers
and their families. One of the great
est of these is The Ladies' Nursing
Association, a self supporting auxil
iary of the Red Cross Society. It num
bers among its membership the best
aristocracy of the Empire, and
these women are to be found daily at
work in the bandage room or hospi
tal. Tho Ladies' Patriotic Loaguo
has for its aim especially the care of
the soldiers and their families. It has
a membership ol C0,000, and includes
women from all ranks. The Ladles'
Educational Society, also a mammoth
organization, has extended Ks aim to
cover the needs of the war, and does
Incalculable good. In all the girls'
schools tho pupils are helping some
way, knitting socks for tho sailors
or making caps or articles for the
soldier's. Tho humblest are doing
something. It is said that the servant
girls aro dispensing with tho ser
vices of the hairdresser, a great
deprivation to them, and others of
tho poor are doing without fish with
their rice every other day. Millions of
of these people are miserably poor,
but they find a way to give or to do
seme thing for the common cause.
Copra In the Philippines.
Export of copra from the Phil
ippines havo increased from 71,688,
082 pounds in 1901 to 181,117,084
poiinds in 1903. Tho value of the
trade in 1903 was $3)819,793.
To Explore Ear-tli's Interior.
An interesting discussion of the
moans to bo employed in carrying on
a scientific exploration of the interior
of tho earth was given by Charles A.
Parsons, the inventor of the steam
turbine, m a recent address before
tho British Association for to Ad
vnncemrntof Science. At present
the earth is penetrated by shafts or
bore holes to a point slightly in ex
cess of a mile, and save for the in
crease of tcmpot aturc with depth
litllo is known of its interior condl
lion. By sinking a shaft to gieat
depth not only would vast scientific
knowledge bo gained, but also there
would be the possibility of discover
ing mineral conditions of economic
importance. Mr. Parsons believes
that sinking such a s.iaft would not
bo an impossible engineering accom
plisliment, nnd he has computed the
approximate cost, length of timo re
quired, and tho tempera turo of the
rook likely to be encountered as fol

The plan wculd bo to. sink tho shaft
in some place free from water-bear
ing strata, providing stages at inter
vals of a half mil, at each of which
would bo. placed the machinery for
working the section belcw, including
lhe.nccessa.-y refrigerating appara
tus to reduce the temperature.
Thero would also be required at in
tervals of two or three miles air locks,
as the pressure would increase great
ly as tbe deeper lha shaft penetrat
ed. To bore to great depths the
freezing process would havd to be
employed, and a number of borelioles
sunk In a circle around the shaft pro
per, so that by means of brine the
rock, sand and water could be frozen
and then excavated.
Agricultural Outlook In Russia.
According to a confidential re
port presented to the Czar by the
controller ot tho state in 1902 the
arrears in annual payment by the
peasants for the redemption of land
distributed amcng tbem at the time
of their emancipation has increased
from 94,000,000 ruble? in 1897 to
121,3000,000 last year. This bare
fact is regarded cs typical of the
crushing burden under which ogre
cultural peasants are working, and
is illustrative of the general econ
omic state of the country. The same
report speaks most pessimistically
of industrial conditions. Over 100,
000,000 rubles had been loanod up to
tho beginning of this year by tho
stato banks for tho maintenance of
unsound firms, particularly in the
metal indrstry. S. P. Examiner.
Along The Fighting Line.
A Chinese nswspaper published at
Shanghai gives the following reasons
why Russia has so far been defeated
by Japan. The emperor was deceived
by his advisers and their bragging;
tho commanders has made no war
plan; tho ambassador In Tokyo failed
to glvo 1 is government sufficient
notico of tho Japanese preparations
for war; corruption in the army and
navy; adulteration of food und am
munition; quarrels among the officers;
failure of the press to enlighten the
putlio as to tbe true state of affairs.
