Japan In Frederic Courll.iiult Penfield, ia tin tuticle in
Ten Years the Saturday Evening Post entitled "Japan
After the War," claims that in tho future Unit country instead of
buying cot ton goods of America will purchase American machinery
and make 1he goods herself after American ideas. Japan has
learned that her soils are not adaptable to agriculture, so will fol
low the idea of Great Britain and become a manufacturing nation
instead. In speaking of Japan's sway over Korea he says ;
So dominant is Japan's sway at Seoul that Korea
might be the vassal of Japan. Japanese diplomats
guide the Korean policy and Japanese oilicers direct
military affairs. Korea's N representatives abroad,
many of them, have been called home, for Japan is
willing to look after the foreign interests of her neigh
bor gratuitously. Japan can derive immeasurable
benefits from her ward, for Korea offers a solution to
the troublous problem of ever-increasing population
and lack of foodstuffs. The hermit kingdom, amaz
ingly rich in agriculture, richer still in mineral wealth,
and but sparcely settled, presents a tempting oppor
tunity, for the possession of the country seems indis
pensable to Japan's play for greatness. And when
the dispersing smoke of war reveals a bruised and
neglected Manchuria, it will be discovered that Japan
possesses sufficient power at Peking Jo secure privi
leges for exploiting a vast section of southern Man
churia and Manchuria is as prodigal in natural re
sources as Korea. Count Okuma, thrice premier
of Japan, has an alluring scheme for " colonial
development" in Manchuria and Korea, an item ot
which is to make Manchuria compete with Germany
as a beet-sugar producer by means of Japanese
energy. Five years hence Japan will industrially be
well-to-do: ten years honce, industrially affluent as well
as politically powerful. And ten years is not long for
a busy nation to wait, when the reward is the uifuis
putud position of a World .Power to a country im
mersed in business, ten years is like a day in u man's

New Hope For " Pulmonary Tuberculosis, or consumption
Consumptives of the lungs, can be cured without the
patient leaving his home or departing from his usual occupation,
even if the disease has reached the advanced stage and the climax
be generally lvgurded as unfavorable. The only sufferers for
for whom it now may be said there is no hope are those whose
systems have become infected throughout with the toxin secreted
by the bacilli, and those whose tuberculosis is complicated by
maladies that inhibit its treatment according to the methods at
present in vogue." Such is the latest dictum of medical science
regarding mankind's white plague. The authority for the above
statement comes from the New York Post Graduate Hospital and
the Medical School where its veracity has boon demonstrated be
yond the possibility of a doubt. The cures have been so pronounc
ed that former tuberculosis patients have passed the most rigid
examination of the old line insurance companies.
County The News has on several occasions remarked that
Finances Maui County would hold her own and make the
best showing. The report of the County Treasurer for the period
ending Aug. 31st gives a balance in the local bank to the credit
of the county of $1471.55 from the general fund and 13624,87
from the Road Tax Special deposit, making a sum total of $5090,
42. Other counties have made the request of the Territory that
their monthly allowance from funds due them be increased. This,
Maui County has not been forced to do, having more than sufficient
funds to carry on the affairs of the county and still have a snug
little account in the bank.

year and on September 9th, California was admitted to statehood
The "days of 49," are household words with the old settlors of
California and many are the weird experiences told of those stir
ring times in prose and poetry.

Raise Tobacco? raised on Maui? This is a question which
should receive the attention or the horticulturalists. The experi
nient as tried in the Hamakua dist rici of Hawaii has proved that
the Cuban and Sumatra varieties thrive well under proper care.
Mr. J. C. Kendricks, a tobacco manufacturer of Tennessee, who
was a judge at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, speaks very
favorably of these two varieties as grown in Hamakua

September 7th, 1905.
Editor, Maui News, Wailuku, Maui.
Sir: Maui people, who understand
the game of Polo, were very much
surprised at the decision of thp
umpire in the Polo game of Septem
ber 2nd., that Maui lost the last
goal by l-5th of a second.
Our private advices are, that the
goal keepei said the poal was made
before the sons sounded, and a mem
ber of the Oahu team said that, the
sentiment was quite general that
Maui should have been declared the
Even if there was good grounds
for the belief that the goal was not
made by 1-5 th ot a second, this is
bringing timekeeping iu Polo down
to a fine point.
The agreement between the Oahu
and Maui teams, was, that' thy
should play four ten minute periods,
actual play. Time lost in variojs
ways, such as time lost after a goal
is made in getting back to the mid
dle of the field, "ball out of-boun.is,"
time lost by accidents, etc., to be
allowed for, so that there would be
10 minutes actual play in each
The Timekeepers are placed cut
side the field 900 feet long by 430
feet wide, and it is impossible for
them to tell either by their own ob
servation, or from signals from the
lines-men, or goal keepers, just
exactly what time is lost, to the
fraction of a second, and it is equally
impossible for them to ascertain, to
the fraction of a second, when a goal
is made several hundred feet away
Owing to the difficulties of being
perfectly accurate, a little liberali
ty has always been allowed in timing
the goal. It is not figured down to
l-5thof a second and in ceases like
the one that occured in the Oahu
Tournament, the goal would be
Time keeping in Polo cannot be
brought down the strict rules of the
race track, where it. is an easy
matter to keep time to the function
of a second.
I wiuld mention incidentally ,hat
Oahu reallv made themselves only
Hi goals, instead of 4j. One of the
Maui men gave the ball a backhand,
which unfortunately for Maui, striek
one of the horses legs, tnd glaneeo
through the goal, -tiius giving Oahu
a goal under the rules, though it
was struck by a Maui man.
We frel strongly that the umpire
was wrong in his decision, nnd that
Maui fairly won the giime of Septem
ber 2nd. -

Ignorance is Bliss.
The ignorance of the employes
of the Maui Wine and Liquor Co.,
in not knowing the meaning of
the word "dilution" spells bliss fcr
the public, as the latter get their
winen and liquors just as they are
bought pure. Lookout for the direct
shipment of the world famous "Mar
kinch" whiskey from Fife, Scotland,
Place your orders early to avoid dis
Gain In Population.
Liberal Now that Governor Carter has resumed office it is to
Policy be hoped that he will pursue the same liberal policy
towards land settlements and forest reserves that the Acting-Governor
inaugurated during the time he engineered the administra
tion work of the territory.
According to F.'M. Husted, the
compiler of the uew directory, the
City of Honolulu has lost 740 iu popu
lation, not taking Asiatics into con
sideration, since the last directory
was issued, kacb of the other Is
lands has made substantial gains iu
other than Asiatic population. 11a
waii has gained 750, Maui 600, and
Kauai 350. This indicates that the
Territory has gained about 1000 in
population other than Asiatic, since
the last directory was issued. This
means, in effect, an increase of that
much in European population. The
gain has, generally speaking, been in
the country and not in the .towns.
