A Warning Tho Literary Digest of Oct. 7 has tlr following
To Russia expressions relating to Italy's a titude towards
Russia: ITALY "redeemed," in its present, sad politic il condition,
is a warning to tho 'evolutionary party in fi issii, s iys, l- dei'.oi
Paltrinieri in tho Rissegna Nazionile, of Florence. Tho picture he
gives of the state of politics in Italy would be welhi'gh incredible
if it did not appear in a magazine published in the midst of the con
ditions it portrays, where misrepresentation would be futile. The
Russian people, arguos Mr. Paltrinieri. are not ripe for revolution
any more than the Italian people were tifty years ago; the Russian
leaders of revolt are indisputably inferior to those who led the
Italian uprising, and the Russian people liavo been so long sunk
in servitude and have so long borne the yoke of tyranny that it is
too late to call them to liberty. To quote:
"In our opinion the Russian agitation h is come too late. Nno
of us can avoid a feeling of consternation ui the sight of its wretch
ed aud nameless victims. Each one of us will curse those coward
ly Gapons of the universe who instigate to rebellion the igr.orau
and thoughtless mob and theu hide themselves and operate from a
distance.. .. .. In contrast to the Gapons of to day the unconquer-
ed heroes who dedicated themselves to the ac.'.oaiplishtueni; ol our
redemption met with a death sublimely heroic and glorious."

Union of Panama The overtures which Panama has made
and Costa Rica to Costa Rica witn the purpose of no
gotiating a treaty of annexation are, in the opinion of the New
York Evening Post (Ind.). the first sign pointing to the possible
realization of "a plan which President Roosevelt has long cherish
ed.'' But the New York Tribune (Rep), sees no such secret design
in this new movement, and attributes the neighborly advances of
the people of Panama to less artificial causes. Thus:
"There is no denying the fact that the people of Panama have
found that their dream of empire has failed to-come up to their
expectations. The restictions placed on them by the treaty with
the United States actually prevented them from conducting revo
lutions and made it impossible for them to raise abundant revenue
by imposing heavy taxes on the men engaged in constructing the

material, of which they expected to enjoy a monopoly, largely sup
plied from this country, so that it is, perhaps, not unnatural that
they should regard with favor tbe suggestion that they throw in
their lot with Costa Rica, the most stable and prosperous of all the
Maui's Word comes from Honolulu that the Tourists
Attractions Association and the'hCamber of Commerce
are about to have published a revised booklet setting forth the at
tractions of the islands from a point of view interesting to tourists.
So far all data which has been sent out has had more to do with
Honolulu than the islands, and as this is to a great extent a Hono
lulu enterprise, merchants, livery men and hotels on the islands
outside of Honolulu which are the first to derive a benefit cannot but
blame themselves if only a small portion of the literature is de
voted to attractions other than Oahu and the Capitol. If touristtrade
is wanted you must let the public known what you have to interest
them. Maui is as much blessed with attractive sights as anv of
the other islands, but it is a case of let the traveling public know
what these sights are. You would not intrude into a persons home
unless you were invited, why then should you expect tourists to
visit Maui if a cordial invitation is not extended them. ''Incon
sistant is he who hath not faith in the medicine he prescribeth."
The Guild On Saturday evening November I8th the LadieB
Bazaar Guild of the Church of the Good Shepherd will hold
a bazaar for the sale of fancy articles at the Knights of Pythias
Hall. The good work done by this Guild is a very commendable
oue and should be encouraged to its fullest. Twice monthly the
ladies who form this society devote an afternoon to making articles
of wearing apparel which are distributed to those of the church
who from force of circumstances are unable to provide themselves.
A liberal patronage of this bazaar by the public will do much to
wards placing funds at the disposal of tho society whereby they
can assist the sick and the needy, and it is to be hoped that the
people of Central Maul will show their appreciation by a liberal
McGregor's Land- Just why the Department of Public
Ing Approach Works should call for tenders for a
wharf for McGregors Landing and make no provisions for any ap
proach is hard to understand, yet such is the case. Tbe contract
has been let for a substantial wharf but unless the material is
brought in from the sea there is no road to deliver this - material
to where it is wanted, unless perhaps by skidding it down the hill.
An approach was estimated to cost something like 3180.00 but it
is believed that a good wagon road which will answer all purposes
can be built for considerably less.
Small Oahu seems to be having a controversy over tho
Farmer small farmer question and just vhat thedetination
small larmer as pertains to the Hawaii means. Tho word small
farmer as accepted in the general term is a misnomer when applied
to the agriculturists of the islands. There are special industries to
which the soil of the islands are more than suitable but to attempt
to raise such produce as are shipped from the coast is fool hardy
Tropical fruits and fibres which will command a good figure ou
the mainland are the industries which should be fostered.

Lahaina, October 18, 1905.
In Criminal No. 11., last week the
News Etated that Humphreys was
retained to help the defendant,
whereas it should have been that he
was retained by friends of the dead
man, Ung Chen, to speak at the time
of sentence of Ko Yee. When the
Court took up tbe matter of sentence
of Ko Kee yesterday afternoon, and
called upon counsel for remarks,
Coke spoke on behalf of the defen
dant, and then Case spoke for the
prosecution. When he got through,
the Court asked Mr. Humphreys if
he had anything to say, he answered,
"I consider the whole proceedings a
tarce, aud will have nothing more to
do with it." These remarks were
brought about by him for the reason
that Ung Chen, tbe victim, died with
in a few days after his assault, and
the defendaut should have been in
dicted tor murder, but the prosecu
tion did not do so, but charged' him
only with assault with intent to com
mit murder. The sentence of tbe
Court was 5 years at hard labor, and

of a committee of the church to guard

among the songsters and the mem
bers of the congregation sniffed
The Christan church has prided it
self on its music. Choirmaster Willi
ken, some months ago, took charge,
but recently trouble is said to have
resulted over his manner of conduct
ing the musical end of the services.
The congregation resolved into fac
tions and on Saturday the choir
master was informed that his services
were no longer needed. Most of the
musicians sided with their leader and
declared that he would stay or they
would refuse to sing.
Both faotions have retained legal
counsel and are prepared for the dis
ruption of the organization.
