'As for yollou fever, tho time has p ir.oil wi.cn
it should excite undue alarm. Science has 1;s
covered its cause, and scionco has lnnrn.Vi how to
deal with and to exterminate the cause. It simp
ly comes from tho bite of a perculiar mosquito, tho
Stegomyia. Somo of these insects were brought
here in cargoes of fruit from Central America, as
doubtless they have been carried to Mobile nnd
other fruit ports, and they stung some of tho
workmen who unloaded the ships.
"The mosquitoes being here, the business of
science is to kill them, and this is being done. Cis
terns are being screened and oiled, gutters and v
cesspools are being oiled, and all infected or sup
posed infected premises are being fumigated witn
sulphur. As for the people themselves, they can
protect themselves perfectly by anointing hands
and faces and other parts exposed to mosquitoes
with a lotion made of alcohol and such essential
oils as pennyroyal, lavender, ceder, aud tho like.
The cost is small. Houses should be screened and
the use of mosquito-bars should be strictly at
This mosquito, breeds in countless numbers in the swamps and
marshes around tho city. "The mosquito can only be infected dur
ing the first three days of a patients illness says the N. Y. Herald,
and being free is enabled to scatter the virus broad cast before a
correct dignosis of the original malady can be determined." It is
also claimed that tho disease originates spontaneously in towns

absorb and convert it.- Maui will probably never be visited with
an epidemic of yellow fever, but there are other epidemics of a
milder form, such a diphtheria, which could cruise '.avoc if a foot
hold was obtained. Maui with its favorable clim at e is possibly lehs
likely to ever suffer any epidem c. yet can not a lesson be learned

the residents to take what measures are at hand to do away will
the pest as much as possible by destroying its home, or the home,
of tho larvae, which in always in slagment water either in old cans
and containers or abandoned taro patches.

WITTB'S HIGH OPINION OF
NEW YORK, August 4 M.
Witte and Baron Rosen reached
the St. Regis Hotel on their return
from Ovstcr Bay at 6:15: Witte
made the following statement a
bout the impressions he had re
ceived 01 tno rresiuen t on tnis, me
first time he had seen him:
"I have conceived the highest
opinion of Mr. Roosevelt. 1 was
particularly struck by his energy
nnd broad mindodness. I feel it is
good for the United States to have4
so distinguished a man at the head
as its executive, nnd I fully appre
ciate the reasons that led to the
choice of him for so responsible and
honorable a post. I do not say
this with any desire to flatter the
President or the American people.
It is my sinceie conviction."

Encourage The great State of Iowa was mndo possible by
Expansion the honeycombing of its counties bv the railroads.
Without the building of the railroads Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska. Colo
rado, in fact, any and all of the western States would not be what
they are to-day. With tho building ut roads came settlers, nnd
with the settlers camthe tilling of the soil and eventually pros
perity. Nor were the rural districts alone responsible for the
building up of a community ; the towns and smaller villages had
their share of the work to perform. ! In the building of railroads
in the West it is cusomary for counties as well as the cities and
towns to do all they can io encourage the building of railroads, and
the more roads the better, and where any rivalry exists handsome
bonuses are often given by one county to change, if necessary, the
alignment of the road to tap their settlements to the detriment of
its rival. Here on Maui the Kahului railroad is constantly making
substantial improvements to its line and rolling stock, and at this
writing is contemplating an extension of its lino to a point further
up into the county seat, w hich cannot but be of benefit to those who
use the road only as a mode of conveyance, while those who are
receiving and shipping goods, the contemplated extension will be
a money and time saver. Is it then right that some should try to
retard the progress of the road by placing obstacles in the way of
this extension ? Above all things a knocker in a community should
not be tolerated. Let the Improvement Association take up this
matter and see what can be done towards encouraging this exten

of Maui, and the terms have been faith

for half. I don't stay here but he
must take care from the land just like
me. The land of bananas he take for
half until I don't come back, and the
trees, he must take care of them, and
water them when they need: The road
in front of the house, I gave business
to my neighbor the passing, until they
make no harm, but if they make harm,
I gave business to to shut the
road. And they must pass at the head of
the land their own road the ditch. He
must let tie no horses on the land and
give no water from the land to nobody.
At the catchinjf of the taro to the other
time of the catching again, and selling
the taro for the highest that can be, he
must tell me when he sell, and give me
half of tte coast.
This lease was offered to a party, a
friend of one of the signers to be filed,
but there is no registrars endorsement to
show that it has been properly recorded
which is not at all surprising.

Beach Resort Central Maui comment on the absence of
any public beach resort, where a day or so can be spent enjoyint
the benefits of sea bathing. Were such a place available the
numerous traveling men and visitors, as well as residents of Wai
luku and the up-country districts, would avail themselves of the
hospitality of such a resorL Kahului, on account of its central
location, cooling breezes and sand beach, would be tho logical
8ot for a small resort open to the public as are the beach re
sorts of Honolulu, and would undoubtedly receive ample patron
age, A building with broad lanais and airy rooms, would be most
inviting to spend a few hours, a day, or an outing from Saturday
afternoon to Monday and with the additional inducements of sea
bathing would fill a long feltwnnt, and be a still further induce
meut to iuainlanders to lengthen their stay.

Was Given Chinese Funeral.
S. Kahale one of Maui's old time
Hawaiians aud something of a unique
political character, died suddenly last
Monday and wa9 buried under the
auspices of the Gee Kung Tong Society
which is composed of the representative
Chinese merchants and business men of
It appears that when this society, which
is a branch of the society by the same
name on Oihu, were ready to build their
club house, Kahale sold them the land
at a nominal figure with the understand
ing that at his death he was to be buried
by the socie ty with the full rital of the
society, aud a still further sum was to be
paid monthly or annually to his heirs.
This is the first funeral of this nature to
occur in the territory.
