Good, clean work at the Convention to-day means
a safe ticket and a victory at the polls June 20th.
The residents of Maui have an opportunity to-day to demon
strate their sincere desire to better their condition on a hygienic
basis. A well established, thoroughly responsible business con
cern stands ready to day to invest sufficient capital on Maui, and
all that is asked in return is the patronage of the people. This
concern even goes further in its statement and promises it will
cost the public no mora money than they are now paying for this
work, indifferently, and in the majority of cases, unsanitarily done,
Let the public take up this matter of support, which not only tends
to healthier home conditions, but fosters a new industry at uo ad
ditional outlaj on the part of the public.
Coelho's persistency in hogging everything
in sight for Maui had the effect on Saturday
that we surmised it would. It kicKed back.
A number of items were reduced to conform
to reason, and there will undoubtedly be other
cuts. When a legislator turns out to grab
every dollar left in the treasury he is apt to
find other people on hand with equally good
claims. The result of Mr. Coehlo's grab-all
policy is apt to be that the appropriations for
Maui will be reduced below the amounts gen
erally intended by the Legislature.- Inde
pendent. How quick some people are to kick when the shoe that, pinches
is on their foot instead of the other fellows. The ,: grab-all policy"
of Representative Coelho is just what Maui wants. It is tired of
seeing Oahu get the meat aud Maui the shell.
The Honolulu Advertiser of May 16 under the editorial caption
of "The Advertising Atrocity" attacks the outdoor methods of local
and national advertisers to place their goods before the reading
public. Years ago the newspapers of New York attempted to
prejudice the advertisers against street car advertising. Their
claims and contentions were so small and showing on the face
a mercenary motive, that the national advertisers finally withdrew
a large portion of their valuable patronage from the newspapers,
dividing the funds thus spent between the magazines and bill
board men. This move was not anticipated by the papers, and
when they found their "big stick"' had become a "boomerang" they
were glad to quit. There is no better medium of advertising on
earth than the newspapers, but there are auxiliary methods which
enhance the value of newspaper display.
Dr. Walter Evans, chief of the Division of Insular Stations of
the Department of Agriculture, in an interview in the Advertiser
of May 10, is quoted as saying: "A one-industry country is
bound to come to grief sooner or later." If this country is adapt
able to profitably carrying on other agricultural industries aside
from our main one sugar, the Department, of Agriculture will,
through its highly proficient agents and scientists soon find
out what is not only best adaptable for our soil, but what product
can be profitabley raised and not come into too close competition
with the products of mainland districts. The talk of those who
are against diversified industries, is "that it looks alright on paper,
but is not practicable." Neither was it possible twenty years ago to
obtain the same yield of sugar per ton of cane that it is today. This
was only done by studying the conditions aud the inventon of
special machinery. What has been done in sugar will be done one
clay in Agriculture of such a na;ure as will work a benefit to both
sugar and itself.
The posponed meeting of the Wal
luku Improvement Association was

spent; additional school facilities at
Kahului to accomodate the eighty
odd children and the employment of
an additional teacher,

Giff ird Pinchot, America's famous forester, speaking of For
estry iu his primer recently published in the Department of
Agriculture, says ; "Next to the earth itself the forest is the most
useful servant of man. Not only does it sustain and regulate the
streams, moderate the winds, and beautify the land, but it also
supplies wood, the most widely used of all material .
"The object of practical forestry is precisely to make the forest
render its best service to man in such a way as to increase rather
than diminish its usefulness in the future ; it means both the use
and the preservation of the forest." Further on in speaking of
the uses of the forest and defining the various kinds of forest,
such as protection forests, he says : "Forests which protect the
headwaters of streams used for irrigation are protection forests.'
The people of the Hamakua district of Hawaii learned an expen
sive lesson years ago when from wilful causes the forests were des
troyed. It is a lesson fully learned that to destroy forests faster
than they grow will eventually cause drougth. The Kohala ditch
to a great extent was found necessary on account of the ruthless
destruction of forest lands, and its building to-day becomes a re
quirement to feed the cane lands until the young forests have
again matured and become useful watersheds. Professor Pinchot
says in this connection: " When rain falls over mountains which
have been deprived of their natural protection it is no longer
caught and held back by the trees and the forest floor .
Where the water way is very steep such a flood often carries with
it many times its own weight of earth and stones Where
it falls the beds of rivers are filled up and fertile lands are covered
with pebbles and sand." In order to protect our main industry as
well as diversified ones that may be established, it is all important
that our residents should know the full value of forestry, and the
News suggests the "Primer of Forestry " as a most comprehen
Strong men, men who have the respect of the voters,
are the men for county officers and the men to
carry the party to victory.
