Purpose of Eki Hiuki, first secretary of tlm .laj aiifMe T,ega
AUiance tion in an address dllvciv l nt llio flnipiro Day
Banquet by the United British Si riotios o! Boston, May '-1th 11105,
in speaking of the purpose of the Aupln-Japanosc Alliance, said:
"No Japanese need feci himself a Mi-augur when ho
addresses a British or American audience, excepting
for the language he has to use, and in talking to a
gathering of Englishmen living in America he doubly
feels among friends. We of Japan realize, how much
we owe to the great Anglo-Saxon nations, how much
they have taught us. and how much we have still to
learn from them. The object of the alliance, as is well
known to you, cannot be better explained tnan by the
language of Lord Lansdowne. In his covering and ex
planatory despatch to Sir Claude McDonald, British
Minister at Tokio, Lord Lansdowne wrote: We have
each of us desired that the integrity and independence
of the Chinese Empire should be preserved; that there
should be no disturbance of the territorial status quo
either in China or in the adjoining regions; that all na
tions within the limits of the Chinese Empire be afford
ed equal opportunities for the development of their
commerce and industry and that their pence should
not only be restored, but should in the future bo
maintained. Here we have in the fewest possible
words the spirit that animated Japan, no less than
Great Britian. You cannot fail to have been impress
ed by the spirit of forbearance, patience and absolute
fairness dispayed by His Majesty's government, and
the desire, pushed almost to the extreme limit of ge
nerosity to do everything possible to avoid war. But
we would have been unworthy of our friends in Eng
land as well as in America, we should have forfeited
our own self respect, if we had permitted our desire
for peace to make us play the part of weaklings and
surrender our rights and interests because we were
not men enough to defend them. Our na
tional existance was at stake. It is most fitting to
quote aslan expression of our own desire what was
said by President Roosevelt: 'We wish peace, but w
wish peace of justice; the peace of rightoousnes.
We wish it because we think it right and not becuue
we are afraid."
Mountain Two hindorencps in the- past have caused many
Retreat a tourist to defer his couten'piated excursion i p
to the summit of Ilaleakala. First the trail has been anything
but inviting, and in many places has become obliterated altogether;
the other is the matter of accommodations in stormy weather or
in case those making the accent wish to stay over a day anr. take
in the grand sunrise and sunset. As a trail of goodly dimensions
will so be made there need be no further comment on this point
but the matter ot shelter is one of importance if Maui expects to
fcater to the tourist trade. The Hot rent" as it has been called
is in a deplorable condition and not tit for human habitation, even
for the few hours one has to accept of its shelter. All of the wood
work has been used by various parties to make tires; tho roof has
also disappeard. a list is now being circulated asking for sub
scriptions in any amount to place the Retreat in proper condition
for protection from the elements. The intention being to replace
the roof, construct a stone floor in place of a wooden one and niHke
other additions of substantial nature, so that parties desiring to
make the accent can have a suitable covering, and one which van
dais cannot destroy. Everyone ou Maui, aside from those busi
nesses will derive direct benefit from tourist trade, shou
assist so far as they are able, to reconstruct this abode. Maui
people who have lived on the island for years, make this excur
sion oftener than residents from tho other islands. If the resi
dents then do not take any interest in this matter, it is unreason
able to expect visitors to attempt this trip surrounded by hardships
Dog In the Captain Matson's deal with the Oceanic
Manger Steamship Co to take passengers direct
from San Francisco to Hilo in the steamer Enterprise
is liable to injure Honolulu. It will mean that many
tourists wiil spend a large part, if not all, of their time
on Hawaii, giving but little to Honolulu aud this is
It would be too bad after all the years that Honolulu has enjoyed
the privilege of tourists stopping of at Honolulu for a few days if
a small percentage, of this trade should be diverted to one of the
other islands first. Yes it might injure Honolulu financially to the
extent of a few thousand dolhrs por annum, but just remeu?ber
how much Honolulu has injured the other places of interest on
Maui and Hawaii, by telling the tourists that there was nothing
worih while to be seen on the other islands, that the accomodations
were poor etc. That they could see all there was to be soon by
staying in Honolulu and spending their money. All kinds of ex
cuses were manufactured to keep the traveling public om Oahu

Our Public Tho attention of the Supervisors is called to the
Highways condition of the roads of tho Wailuku district
Travelling men who make the trip from Lahaina to Wailuku perio
dically are very quick to notice the condition of the roads, and say
that it is a very easy matter to distinguish where the roads are
within the jurisdiction of tho Wailuku board. Undoubtedly the
Wailuku road board bus more work on its hands to contend with
but where it is possible to do so without sacrificing other work, a
public highway like the Pali road, having the traffic it has, should
possibly command a little closer attention.

Pioneer Industry Plant Sold.

The taro factory was built somewhere
in the neighborhood of thirty years ago,
and was used for the manufacture of
taroena, a vegetable food product which
is being advertised in the monthly maga
zines. Last year a quantity was made lip and
shipped to New York, nnd at that time
there was some talk of continuing operat
ing the factory, but a sufficient quantity
of taro which would warrant making np
