ly There is, food for thought in the remarks made by the Balti
more Trade, ii ii c istern publication which is authority on tho cht.
ned goods industry. There seems to bo a shoi Inge in pinetppies
in both Bermuda and Jamaica, yet the demand for these goods has
so rapidly increased in the last decade as to make pineapples the
most staple of all canned fruits.
Pineapples growing in this Territory, while an infant along
side of the same industry of the two countries mentioned and
Florida, has proven conclusively that the sugar loaf plant as
grown here is far superior to the same species elsewhere.
The Wahhva colony of Oahu and tho Haiku Fruit and Packing
Co. of Maui have their entire output of canned pines for the com
ing season sold in advance. Hi to district as well, cuts a figure in
this industry, but as yet has no cannery; but ships the pines to
San Francisco where they command from $2,50 to 5,00 per dozen.
The Haiku Fruit & Packing Go., have not only a large acreage
growing, but have encouraged others within access of their can
nery to cultivate pines and can readily use whatever quantity is
brought them. With the present demand for the canned product
and the threatened shortage of the seasons crop, small farmers
on Maui with 20 to 30 acres have an excellent opportunity to avail
themselves of the present condition to venture into a profitable
industry. Hawaiian fresh pines are the only ones quoted on the
San Fransisco market.

Klnlock House Paint.
While this may be a new pa nt in
Hawaii it is an old established stand
ard make on the mainland, and mnv
of the buildiugs ut the Louisiana
Purchase Exposition were covered
with this paint and at a less cost, in
materia!, surface and wear than any
other known paint. The makers of
Kinloch claim for it, a saving to the
house owner of from 7 to 17 per cent
in the initial cost, and from one third
to one half in the cost per years wear.
Obviously the only true test then of
house paint is the cost per years
The Kahului Railroad are now hi-
troducing this labor and money sav
ing paint on Maui. See them when
next you need paint for either in
terior or exterior work.
A New Religion.
The Rev. J. M. Ezera, a graduate
of the Pacific Institute and at. one
time pastor of the VVaiawa Church,
at Pearl City, is on Maui preaching
a new doctrine called the Religion
of St. Paul. Some of the apostles to
this creed have become so frenzied
that they neglect their home duties
and family, Although this latter
day "St. Paul," as he calls himself,
has ouly been on Maui ten days his
"forceful" doctrine if reaping all
to ready converts, land in one instance
forcible yet gentle means have been
resorted to quell the demonstrative
actions of newly converted apostles.
No one is permitted to know what
the teaching of this self appointed
leader until pledged to absolute se
crecy. The leaders, and his followers
dress in white from head to foot.
Job Printing at the News ofliic.'.
km In fhe theatrical business whenever a new piece is to be
brought out and the management U not quite sanguine to a cer
tainty how the public will receive the performance and as the
future financial success depends upon its correction interpretation
of the characters and the staging, the usual custom is t present it
in small towns until such a time as the piece is throughly master
ed and the actors proficient. This is known as "playing it on the
dog" It seems to be the sentiment of a large number of tlio.se
who attended the March term of court ut Wailuku that tiie At
torney General's department has been ''placing it on' trie dug" in
the person of the recent prosecuting deputy.
The young man who represented the Attorney-General's de
partment is without doubt a very estimable aud ambitious attorney
and will without question make his murk, and the News wishes
him success. He certainly gained a great deal of practical know
ledge, which all attorneys have to learn sometime or other, but
that does not mitigate the fact that the Attorney-General'sdepurt-menl
considered the cases which would come before his Hun r
witn such dispority that it could afford to uiake this term of ci.urt
on Maui a truining school for their law department.
1 Him. W. J. Coelho. Wailuku's member of tiie House of Repre
sentative is the introducer of a joint resolution asning that u law
be enacted by Congress ''by which it shall be declared tout nil
children born in tiie United States from parents who are ineligible
to become citizens shall be barred as citizens a:id voters" and no
be entitled to enjoy trie privileges." i ne resolution is a good one
provided it will hold w-iter which ths News doubts, as it is class
legislation which is contrary to the treaty with Japan both with
the territory made prior to Annexation and the "most fav.-reu
nation" clause which Japan holds with the United States. Could
Some cm oe introduced wnicn wouui ultimately c 'ver the same
ground and ijipo.se the same conditions with possibly trade re
strictions attached, it would be a most excellent and wise law. The
News takes the same stand as the conservative coast papers ihat
the Americanization of the Japanese to compete with the Ameiicui
laborers, be they men, women or girls, is going to work an irrepar

J9 In the annual report of the Department of Agriculture for the
year 1903 in summing up the results of the Experiment Station in
Hawaii special com men is made of the results nf the coffee cul
ture. and says: "An attempt is being made by the special agent
to bring together the coffee growers ot the Hawaiian Islands into
an association for their mutual advantage In this connection
letters were addressed through the Department of State to a i? tim
ber of American Consuls in Europe asking for samples and prices
of the different grades of coffee that are comparable with the Ha
waiian product. With this as a basis it is believed that something
substantial can be done toward developing a market for the sup
erior grades of Hawaiian coffee."
jj New York despatches have it that Andrew Carnegie has for
saken the vocation of subsidising public libraries, and turned nis
attention to the smaller colleges. Here is a chance for Hawaii's
college of learning to "butt in." With the enormous quantities of
iron and steel used in the sugar mills, Mr. Carnegie should feel
kindly disposed towards Hawaii. Send over 150,000 or $ 100.000
Mr. Carnegie for reciprocitys sake.

position in the Far East must be recognized." It is indeed recog
