3 A two-sided mainland view of Sunday base ball appears in
"Case Mnd Comment," ti law publication, in which the ruling of the
presiding judge and the criticism of the editor of the law publica
tion present a sharp contrast. It is in the minds and hearts of
some on the Islands to wish for a "wide-open" Sunday, but (he
majority will not and should not permit this. The News favored
Sunday base ball on Mam for the reason that the members of the
league teams are all working men whose only day of recreation is
Sunday, and who, if not at a baseball game on Sunday afternoon
would be seeking more doubtful forms of recreation. But. Sunday
js an American habit, and custom, around which the law should
t,ever throw a protecting arm, so far as a wide open Sunday is con-
puriieu. --- -
3 The NEWS t.-ilros nlonsura in nrPRpntino- to ita rpiirtars this
wee) nn able and carefully prepared communication from School
-Inspector Chas. Fj Baldwin of Haraii relative to the prim ry educa
lion m our emiaren. it is admittedly true that Mr. Baldwin is
thoroughly familiar with the deteils of the subject about which he
has written, and for that reason even his more radical views are
to be given much weight. Consequently his assertion that the
'two-score teachers cm Hawa'i" whocannot write oorreotttlrtinoiitarv
English are needed, rr-ust for the present be accep-ed. if com
petent teachers cannot be secured elsewhere. Assuming Mr.
.Baldwin's positions to be sound, there can bo but one answer to his
:juery as to the proper solution of the problem, and that is "tune
aud patience from which all good things grow,"
Were this paper to state that there is a npw industry to be os
.tablished on Maui which eventually will yield permanently millions
or dollars annually, with no more expanse than merely harvesting,
preparing for market and marketing the crop, the statement would
.probably be read with uplifted eyebrows, yen the Newsunqualified
ly makes just such an assertion.' Rubber is the crop meant, and
.some of the younger reader of this editorial4ind some of the older
ones too.-will yet live to see its verification. Experiments have
already proven that a merchantable variety of rubber can today
be found in trees which are growing luxuriently on Maui. It will

) One-fairly sickens at reading the details of the horrible
.slaughter which mark the desperate conflicts of the Russians and
Japanese'. The continuous and apparently easy victories of the
Japanese had largely tended to cast discredit on the Russian fight

. stana maae oy K.uropatKin at jviuKaen have put another face on the
matter... Russian fighters are not to be charged with cowardice,

S . The day of small things is coming, and no industry, if profit
able, is too trivial for the notice of the News. Those who desire
to get rich quick may well skip this editorial, but for those who
are satisfied with reasonable and certain profits, there is food for
.thought in it. Eggs range from 35 to 50 cents ner' dnzpn and
Chickens cost from seventy-five cents to one dollar each. The cli
mate of Maui is peculiarly well adapted to the raising of chickens
and the production of eggs all the year round. California is fast.

' excellent features, and is worthy of close and careful consideration
by the Territorial authorities.- The weak points of the proposition
are first the proposition to withhold drinking water froni the set-

3! The visit of Secretary Taft to Panama probably has a depper
meaning tnan is involved in the explanation that his visit is merel"
to allay :minor differences. There will' alwavs he friction between
the American Canal authorities and the Panama government, with
only one eventual solution, and that will be the absorption of the
Panama government by the United States, as a provincial or colo
.rilftl annex. This may not be done at once, but it is only a question
ypf time until such a cour&e becomes imperative, for the reason that
a Latin republic lacks the needed conservatism, andcanbeooprnd

YA In thedeath'of Rev., James H.'Kekeli, there passes away one
of the landmarks of the unselfish and glorious work done by the
early missionaries. Fired with zeal to carry forward the work, he
tfave half a century of his life to missionary work in the- far Mar
uesan Isles, held in honor alike by his people and. .by President
l&peoln, who presorted him with a gold wat.ch.for hrvin- rescued

.Much stock Is being taken tn man
go cultivation at present in th South

Florida Agriculturist on the subject.
Mention U made of the fact that
United States Agricultural Depart
ment has recognized the mango as
"the coning fruit", for the trop ical
portions of the United States, and
has s gents scouring India and all
other sections of ths world where
the mango grows to secure the bet
ter varieties for propagation and
distribution at home. G. N. Collins,
one of the povernment botanists, Is
quoted ns stating that the matiRo
deserves to become as popular rg the
orango and banana. A Florida coun
try paper says that the nianro crsp
in its locality is the largpst, known,
adding that "the qna'ity nf the fruit
is increasing each venr n this luscious
fruit becomes known." Tin saint
"The tune is no-, far distant wlnw
this fruit will compote with the pencil.
There nre various wnys (if preparing
them for the table. Rlifp'1 and covnred
with crtatnand suf,':f llvy are su;o
nor to pe.uhes. Eiten friin h"
hand, 'ju t so,' as the naiivi s t-ay,
thry are simply deli-ious. A greeu
,,nango pie is equal to a fresh app'e
pic. Canned or preserved, they are
a tempting dish. Mango marmalade
is a dish lit for a kin'. Take it alto
gethi r, the mango U the best t il
round fruit grown in this section."
The Florida Agriculturist, in a
leader on maniro cultu -e, tells of the
many table delicncies mnde from the
fruit in India and Jamaica.. Here in
Hawaii, where the mano is one of
the commonest and mftst abundant
fruits, its commercial and gastron
oraical values have been treated with
remarkable indifference by the gen
evi 1 puMic. In Hnioiti1.'. m: ny bnusp
holders having an nbundiir.ee of man
gaes growing on their premises give
away the fruit, or seil it for a nominal
price, to Chinese and natives collect
ing it in bags to sell to the fruit stores.
Many people prefer to have no man
go trees on their home premises be
cause they attract boys to pilfer the
fruit day and night in the season,
who disfigure the trees by breaking
the branches and thrfat.cn window
glass and folks' hends with stones
thrown to bring down the mangoes.
Still, it is a wonder to residents who
reflect on conditions here why some
thing of great value to the islands
has not been made of the mango.
Given a rood variety of the tree to
plant and the mango within three or
four years will bpgln to yield most
luscious fruit, increasing in profuse
ncss year by year until a single tree's
proiluct is numbered in thousands.
The ft uit is peculiarly agreeable to
the onlale. both when eaten freBh
and cooked in no end of. ays. It is
capable of manufacture into export
able preserve aai condiments with
as little a degree of either trouble or
skill as required for any other fruit.
Though our people a a whole have
been indiHerent to ti e mango as ma
terlal for increasing Hawaiian indus
try and commerce, our agricultural
authorities under different systems
havs been giving considerable atten
tk.ui to the introduction of improved
orie-ies of the fruitful' propagation
