JULY 1, 1905
Experience a Tho suggestion of Representative Coelho,
Good Teacher that a potition be sent to the War Depart
ment asking tbat sub-posts be established and a detachment of
regulars be maintanied on each island is a matter which should
receive the hearty co-operation and endorsement of every law
abiding citizen and tax payer. Commander Collin who has been
in close touch with military affairs in the Philippines and a close
observer of the varviu the Orient, as well as other officers, have
with oue accord said that Hawaii, and that means not only Oahu
but all of the islands of the group, should be fortified. So far
Honolulu and Oahu have received liberal attention from both the
army and navy departments and but a cursory glance given to
the other islands. The News is not desirous of heralding any
scare, but it is time that some means of protection against pos
sible injury during strikes and riots should be assured the citi
zens, The troubles in the immediate past at various points on
Maui, have, while fortunately been amicably settled, been of
sufficient importance to warrant more than a passing thought.
With a detachment of regulars permanently stationed at central
points on each island the dauger of destructive, strikes and riots
would be greatly lessened. The minatory attitude of laborers of
Maui within the last week and the last; two months is not to be
lightly passed over.
At the Lahaina strike a sympathiser thought the strike pre.
mature, that it would have been much better to havo waited until
such a time as the strikers could have fully armed themselves.
Uncle Sam is sometimes as slow to act as he is to anger, but if
the importance of establishing sub-posts can be brought to his
attention forcibly enough, he will do what is necessary to insure
the islands individually of protection from internal As well as
external troubles. Experience should be a good teaclie .
Sounds the Secretary Atkinson in his inlerv ew in the
' Keynote Honolulu press sounds the Keynote of suc
cess to get the agricultural lands of Hawaii settled with good
citizens when he says that ' in order to secure permanent settlers
the Administration must persue a liberal land policy " The time
was not many years ago, when well to do farnliM S fr.wi tho main,
lane seeking a more congenial climate in which to continue their
vocation, and still not havo to contend with tho many vicissitu
des of the central, western and northwestern states turned their
eyes Hawaii-wards, all manner of misrepresentations were made
of tha (inadaptability of the soil "for sub tropical and temperate
zone agriculture; likewise in stock raising. Throw open for set
tlement lands not now available or which are not being developed'.
Make it easy for settlers to obtain these lands and the islands
will soon have a class of settlers who .vill bo a credit to the Ter
ritory agriculturally and financially. There are many Hawaiian
aud Portuguese who have expressed a wish for these lands. Let
them havo first choice, then look to the mainland for more. These
islands should easily support a population of ono . million as the
hundred thousand it does. ' '
Was The County A friend of H. P. Baldwin explains
Act Standby that the old politician was defeated
by a mere boy for office as supervisor, not because he
he has become uupopular on Maui aud has lost his
grip, but because he was only a half-hearted sup
porter of county government. If that is really tho
case the people of Maui did a very excellent thing in
turning him down. There is no room in county gov
ernment for weak sisters, no matter how much
money they may chance to have.-; -Independent.
Nothing of the kind, Brother Testa. No more loyal supporter
to the county act exists than Mr. Baldwin, and had it not been tor
Mr. Baldwin's statements before the legislative bodies and later
his published statement in an afternoon Honolulu paper the News
doubts if the county act and the election of county officers for
which you have been fighting for the Hawaiians would have been
possiole. Mr. Baldwin's defeat cau be laid at the door of those
who know not the meaning of the word gratitude andof ex-party
In the new schedule as arranged by the Inter-Island Steam
Navigation Co., Maui loses her regular Wednesday morning ferry.
Ever since a regular service of steamers to Maui has been had the
residents of Central and East Maui have looked forward to Wed
nesday morning aB the day on which they could learn to within
twelve hours what was going on at the capitol and the outside
worldand it will bo hard for them to accustom themselves to the
change from Wednesday to Saturday, yet as it apparently is the
desire of the steamships company to give Maui as more frequent
regular passenger service, we shall have to forget the past and
take advantage of the present additional service.

are to be congratulated on the prompt manner in which they
