Chinese uprising The war department of Washington is
lieing Organized. sending more troops to the far east and
it is understood that this is being done with the determination to
protect Americans in China. The Chinese are reported to be
preparing for an uprising against all foriegn devils and practically
every News Pauek correspondent says such a state will soon
occur and it is believed that the storm will far surpass in fury the
The Chinese have always considered themselves superior to the
Japanese and since liussias defeat by the little brown men China
has been preparing for an attack on the whole white population
within her borders.
If such an attack is made the Chinese will soon learn to their
sorrow that the Japanese are far their superiors in the art of war
and that she willmeet a far superior force to that opposed to Japan.
Those who are qualified to speak authorati vely on the subject think
the trouble will occur either this summer or soon thereafter.
In the recent uprising in Shanghai which was started on account
of hatred of the British about sixty-five Chinese were shot down
and had the marines not been promptly landed the uprising would
have become general.
About the only thing that will be of benefit to China will be
good sound thrashing and and she will certainly get it if she carries
out her present programme.
Surplus of Canada.
Canada Is about the only competi
tor of the United States iu export-
ng cattle, hams, and lard. In none
f these articles, Ifowever, have there
been any important mcreasss during
the five years ending with 1904. In
!W4 there were exported from Can
ada 157,000 cattle, 3,900,000 pounds
of hams, and 500.000 pounds of lard.
The principal meat exported from
Canada is bacon. The quantity ex
ported increased from 77,000,000
pounds in 1898 to 112,000,000 pounds
in 1899, a.ul in 1904 amounted to 124,
Most of the cattle and meat of Can
ada is produced in the region lying
east of Lake Huron. Of the 5,000,
00 ! cattle i.i the country in 1901, all
but 1,000.000 were in Ontano.Quebec,
and the Maritime Provinces. In On
tario alone there were 2,500,000.
The Superintendents Superintendent Babbit of the de
Tour. partment of public Instruction in
acquainting himself with local conditions from personal observa
tions is doins a work that all must recognize as of vast benefit to
the schools of the territory.
The trips are anything but pleasant ones and few men of his
position would take them yet such men as he has provenhimself
to be are the ones most needed.
The heretofore neglected schools may reasonably expect to get
necessary repair's while the favored few may call in vain for what
they do not need.
One thing necessary to the proper administration of the territo
rial affairs is a corps of officials who will acquaint themselves by
personal observation with the needs with the territory and,then do
their work where it will do the most good for all.

The Kona of Last Week.
The kona storm of last week' of
which a partial description of its work
was given in last week issure seems
to have been the strongest in years
and did far more damage than we
were able to hear of in time to go to
press owing to the fact that the
telephone wires were down.
Waihee seems to have suffered
most and many houses were blown
down and the roofs of the majority nf
them were damaged if not entirely
At Waiehu a house occupied by
some Chinamen was completely over
turned and left standing upside down.
The house was occupied at the
time and the fright of the celestials
may be better imagined than described.
Many thousands of feet of flume
were blown down and the cane badly
damaged by being blown down. In
some cf the upper Waihee camps
whole roofs, timbers and all, were
torn off by the wind and carried as
far as fifty feet up the hillside leav
ing the workmen exposed to the
torrents of rain.
The next morning Mr. Halverson
Superin tendent for Mr. Waldeyer on
the construction of the new Waihee
ditch sent down to town and bought
all the bread for sale for the use of his
men and provided other food and
sheller for them that the work on
the construction of the tunnels might
go on uninterruptedly.
In Kula a number of small houses
were blown down and considerable
Japanese Fishermen In Sampan
Are Upset And Saved.
When the wind was blowing its
hardest Friday evening two Japanese
fishermen in a sampan were seen
outside the heads making a desper
ate endeaver to reach shore. The
wind was in such a direction that it
was necessary for them to tack.
A large crowd along the water front
was watching the boat and its occu
pants. At times it would disappear
behind a wave and a second latter
seem to be in the a'r. Several dog-
en Japanese fishermen were among
the witnesses. Finally the sampan
was blown over when the men tried
to make a turn.
Immediately there was a rush

The strike The strike of the plantation laborers it Waipa-
at Waipahu. hu seems to have resulted as most strikes do
to the detriminent of its organizers, more than to the employers.
Acts of violence always cost a striking body the support and
sympathy they otherwise may have won and they usually suffer
greatly and then go back to work under less favorable conditions
than they formerly enjoyed.
The business of striking is usually conducted in the interest of
l'Jlie leaders and the laborers foot the bill.

Thumping the keys of a piano
is not music, and putting succes
sively various lenses before the
eyes is not an examination, even
though certain improvements in
vision are obtained.
Anybody can test your eyes
you can do it yourself, but the
scientific use of lenses involves
something more than experi
menting. Few can examine eyes and do
it intelligently and satisfactorily
--quite a difference between eye
tests and eye examinations. Did
that fact ever occur to you?
