Hugh VI . CoUe ... Editor and nanager
SATURDAY. - - ... APRIL. 14, 1906
INo Cynosure. A few weeks ago Attorney J. U. Smith of Hilo
assumed the position of manager and editor of the Hawaii Herald,
and seemed to think that he had at last found a l?ed of roses and
one of the easiest and most attractive positions that was to be
He was doomed to disappointment. Instead of having but three
quarters of a column of editorials to write, he was expected to write
copy for his whole paper, know of every liUle incident that happen
ed on the island as well as giving his readers the doings of the
whole world, refrain from saying anything that any of his sub
scribers or their friends might take exception to, steer clear of all
factions and petty jealousies and make each faction feel that they
were tho only people on earth. He was expected to proof read
correctly each word, and be ready with a satisfactory explanation
for any error that one of the typos made that ruffled the sense of
propriety of some dead head who was on the complimentary list.
He was exnected to find work for all of the help during the first
few days ofthe week when nothing of interest was happening, and
still have space reserved for everything of interest to any indivi
dual, whether the same was of interest to the public or not. He
found that he was expected to keep the books of the business cor
rectly, make deductions for amounts that had never beon paid.and
collect from those who were never known to pay anyone, tie was
expected to look pleasant when his patrons insisted on having a
large job order done for less than one-half of tho actual cost of the
paper on which the work was done.
In politics, Smith found that his statement that he was a Deino
crat by birth, a Republican by affiliation, and a Home Ruler by
promotion, wasn't to the liking of any political body and report has
it that he was soon heard repeating a lew lines wnicn ran some
thing like the following!
''Lives there on earth a man so dead
Who never to himself hath said
What a fool of myself 1 have made?"
Smith didn't remain any longer in the editor's chair than it took
to send to Honolulu for a new man, and it is said that the happiest
attorney in the islands was John U. when he walked buck into his
office free from the cares of newspaper work.
A Local Boycott. The latest nles from Honolulu announce
the existence in Honolulu of a movement on foot by the Chinese of
that place to boycott the banking house of Bishop & Co., unless it
discharges a Chinese clerk, who has been with the firm many years.
The request will in all probability not be granted as the fault
found with the clerk has nothing to do with his duties in connec
tion with the bank, but is the result of a disagreement among the
Chinese about the disposition of funds collected in Honolulu for
the purpose of aiding the boycott in China against American goods.
While it is a well known fact that the Chinese of the islands have
aided and abetted the Chinese of China in their efforts to force the
American Government to deal more liberally with them than in the
past, those who know the Chinese well must smile at their conceit.
Treacherous and deceitful by nature, imbued with the desire
for personal gain, and utterly void of any moral principle, a Chi
nese boycott like a Chinese war cannot amount to much.
The New Banks A few years ago Mr. G. B. Robertson, at
o? Maui. that time the owner and editor of the
News advocated the institution of a bsnk in Wailuku, and was
laughed at for his foresight. In spite of the jeers a bank was built,
and a good paying business was soon established.
As time went on the local bank was enlarged and its capital in
creased, and last week the National Bank of Lahaina opened its
doors to the public, and we predict a bright future for it under the
able management of its cashier, Mr. C. D. Lufkin who, by his
strict integrity and courteous treatment of all, and his superior
business acumen made the First National Bank of Wailuku a finan
cial success and an institution that the public could not get along
That the bank in Lahaina will prove a success from the start we
do not doubt. That the people there will soon feel that it is an
institution that they should have had years ago, is a fact that they
all will soon acknowledge. '
And now the work on the Baldwin National Bank at Kahului has
begun and will soon prove a great convenience to the busiuess
community. The old building on the site of the new bank has
been removed, grading has begun and the erection of the building
will soon be begun. Mr. D. C. Lindsay, the former manager ofthe
plantation at Paia, will be the cashier and manager of the new
bank at Kahului, and we are confident that under his management
the bank will be a financial success.
Encourage Baseball. Tomorrow a game of baseball will be
played at Wells' Park and should bo attended and supported by
the entire community for tho reason that it is a clean, manly,
healthful sport and affords a diversion and recreation for those who
are so situated that something of the kind must be provided.
All who are at all acquainted with condit ions as they existed here
in Wailuku know that a few yenr ago this was the worst gambling
hell in the islands and on Sundays many young men were wont to
seek the seclusion of some private room and play poker as long as
their money or credit lasted.
Baseball broke this entirely up and afforded, a recreation that
completely took its place.
To the young men of Kahului, more than to anyone else, are we
indebted for the revival of this healthful and manly sport.
Lot all lend them every encouragement and support.
(Continue from pai;e l)
being that, to commit this clnss (if
offenders to prison, to he associated
from day to day with hardened
criminals, would or might, result in
making criminals rather than
bring about reformation. However,
the results are not as encouraging
as hoped for. Of late quite a large
number of youthful offenders have
been found guilty of such offenses
as assault and battery, larceny, and
the more serious crime of burg
lary. In so far as concerns offenders
under the age of sixteen, consider
able relief is looked for by taking
advantage of the provisions of Act
28, Laws of 11)05, relating to the
trial and prosecution of juvenile
delinquents; but in the case of old
er boys the advantage of this Act
cannot behad. It would appear that
with this class of boys the only re
course will be to reBort to the more
severe punishment of imprisonment
with a hope that one such lesson
will have a beneficial effect. This
can be done at the present time
with better results, ae the more
hardened criminals, those charged
with the commission of felonies
are no longer kept in our local
I may here add that the cause of
this increase of crime and misde
meanors among the younger class
seems to be largely the result of
idleness, boys who have or find
nothing to do.
It is our aim to pursue such a
course as will not only stamp out
crime and criminals, but make
good and useful citizens of those
who, through errors of their own, or
neglect of others, have gone wrong.
D. II. CASE,
day at a gathering of the entire whi'e
population of tne above it rationed
plantation. The Iron Horse with
ears attached was pressed into ser
vice and t ) the iiecoinjminnieiit of the
Kihel minstrels the guests arrived at
It e Ciub House shortly before ten
o'clock. Many bulky and interest
mg parcels were brought, this beina
Mr. Hell's birthday. After testing
tho medicinal qualities of Pump 3
water, clay birds of usual dimensions
began flying skywards aud then guns
were called into action. The mem
bers of the Kihoi Gun Club showed
their markmanship in briuging these
to the ground much the worse for
their short trip heavenwards.
When the whistle announced the
midday hour the quests needed no
second bidding to Mr. Ball's invita
tion for a "bite." All tiled over to the
boarding homs and the "oh's" and
the "all's" were many when, in
the center of the pretti y decorated
t-ooin, the av.g tublo stood revealed
with its feriidecked dishes heaped
high with every Hawaiian delicacy
Mr. MeLeod, the enial headluiia
presided over the lower end of the
table. The afternoon was passed
very pleasantly on the spacious
verandas listening to the seductive
airs of Hawaiian melodies. When
the Aloha Oe was sunj; all joined
wirihit'.g Mr. Bell ui'iny happy birth
days and there were those among
the departing guests, who expressed
the sincere wish, that Mr. Bell's
birthday would come semi annually.
