The News 1ms been consciencions in the matter of urging
minor industries on Maui, and has only asked for what is demon
strably feasible. While a large area of well tilled farms isat pres
sent only ft d ream yet it Is true that more might aud should he
done in this direction. But it is practical end profitable small in
.dustries, such as guava j'jlly, pineapples sisal, peppers, rubber,
otc. which the News has exploited. Some of these industries arc
already in successful operation, and rubber is now coming to the
frot, although many years of experiment will be needed. An ex
perienced man goes toNahiku next week, and the result of his in
vestigations will give the needed impulse to rubber culture on

Il.iwaU J having the same experience as Maui so far as trade
between the coast merchants and the local buyers is concerned,
and while our local merchants deserve consideration at the hands
of local buyers, still there is another side to the question. Outside
of staples, there are many things that people want which are not
carried by our local trade. Again, price is a factor, and it is only
nataral to wish to buy in the cheapest market. But it is not the
Island merchants aloDe who have cause of complaint. Two or three
rge department houses oil tin mainland are absorbing an im
mense amount of trade from all rouiote districts from Maine to
California. It is a changing condition of trade which has come to
A brief of the President's message to Congress shows that the
document is fall of sound American doctrine, and if Congress fol
lows tin lines laid down by the President's message, which itprob
ably will, our country will be materially strengthened both by land
and sea. The key notes of the message are the advancement of
agriculture, irrigation and forestry, and the development of our
merchant marine service. Incidentally restriction of immigration,
the relations of capital and labor and Government control of great
corporations receive due attention. It is significant that the tariff
is not mentioned, save in connection with the Philippines, but the
Hawaiian Islands receive more than passing notice.
UK T..ere can bo no question but what there aie thousands of peo
jle in the froz ;n regions of the mainland who could every winter be
induced to visit the Islands, and it is no less true that many thous
ands would also come here to escape the summer he:tou the main
land. The Islands, as a tourists resort are resinning to attract
general attention. But ,so far, only crude methods have teen
ad pted to educate the people of the States as to the charms cf the
Islands, for either a summer or winter outincr. Southern Cali
fornia spmt years and many thousands of dollars in making its
charms kuown before it began to realize the full benefit of tourist
travel, and the Islands must do tho same thing.
iji Prince Galatzin, mayor of Moscow, iu taking the initiative in
Ihe niatts-r of introducing municipal reform in Russia, hats planted
the first milestone on a new road vhbh Kussia must sooner or
1 iter travel. Ignorant Russia is not to be foa'red, but it is an
educated Russia of which the other powers may well stand in
dread. Russia has the strength mid power to dominatethe world,
but lacks tho ability, on account of th.3 ignorance of the musses. If
Galatzin's reforms include the education of Russian children, the
other groat powers of Europe may well begin to look to their bord
ers, for an educated Russia will not be denied of whateverit wishes.
$! It Legins to look very much as if there were a colored gentle
man in the pickets that surround the Maui appropriations. All of
the larger appropriations l ad strings on them, and some one has
.effectually pulled the strings. Practically all of our smaller appro
. priations seem to have been pigeon-holed, and no prospect appears
to have them takei up. Granting that the Public Works - Depart
ment has had its hanls full, still such appropriations as were for
Iao Valley, the HWeakala trail, McGregor's Landing and the road
around West Maui might easily' have bjen used. Governor Carter
has personally seen our needs and now itls up to hiir. to have work
