Ino Valley Road. In view of the fact that a few of our eiti
zens have expressed a preference for the old location of the I:u
Valley road to the one selected by the authorities it may be well to
call the attention of the public to the views of certain tourists who
have recently visited the valley and who have been asked the
direct question as to which location they preferred.
These gentlemen include such men as Robt. K. Donine, who is
touring the Islands taking moviugjpictures and other scenic views
for thaThos. A. Edison Co. One and all of these gentlemen have
expressed in the strongest terms their approval of the location of
the new road and say it is ideal from a scenic point of view, while
the location of the former road, being under a dense growth, was
shut off from the best views in the island.
Anothwr reason why the present location was chosen is because
it is on permanent ground while the old one up the valley, above
the second crossing, was on loose ground, subject to wash, and
consequently would have cost much for repairs and would have
been a constant source of expense.
The kukui grove, however, above the second crossing, is ont? of
the prettiest groves in the island and h-is been enjoyed by many
in times past and will be in the future by persons, who desire a
cool, quiet place to spend a pleasant day. No one can say acylhhig
against the beauties of Iao Valley, and for a permanent roadbed
tht one selected has more advantages than the lower one.
Portuguese Republican Clubs. Our Portuguese Repub
lican friends of Hamakuapoko have organized a club and are taking
a Uvely interest in the political campaign that is now approaching,
Tftr efforts are commendable and we would be glad to see every
voter in the Islands striving for good political results as our Port,
uguese friends are doing in different precincts. The only error we
think this club has done i to recommend the delegates they wish
before they are nominated. As the nominations are open to all it
would be an easy matter to nominate such men as the club desires
and then vote to a man for those candidates and not cause anyone
to feel that he had been slighted by not receiving the votes neces
saryto his election, which may happen to any one who goes before
The men, however, who have been slated for the convention are
good men and if the club will work in harmony they should all be
lected and would nake good delegates.
The Portuguese are destined to exert considerable influence in
the political arena in the future as their numbers are contautly
increasing and ther are taking the right course by taking an active
Phenomenal Yield. The Puunene mill finished grinding the
the 1905-6 crop last Saturday and in a few days will have all the
juice manufactured into sugar.
The output of sugar for the season just ended will be approxi
ately forty-nine thousand tons. This is the largest output in one
season for any mill in existence and through the skill of the men
in charge and the excellence of the machinery and methods is
Since the purchaM of the majority of the stock of the company
by the firm of Alexander & Baldwin it has been the constant aim
of the management to secure the services of a high class of skilled
men to take charge of the many branches of work in the field, mill
and office and at the present time and for years have had as fine a
corps of men in charge of their respective departments as can be
found anywhere. To this fact is due the wonderful advance in the
tonnage produced and the lowering of the cost of production that
has placed the Hawaiian' Commercial & Sugar Co. ahead of any
other plantation in the group

Robinson Explains Writing to
Judge Robinson today sent to the
Portuguese paper "A Liberdade,"
t e following letter explaining the
reference to Senator Perkins, the
misinterpretation of which has cause
e 1 so much excitement:
Editor, "A Liberdade" Honolulu,
Dear Sir: Out of respect for; the
Portuguese race and people, and in
order that there may be nofurtber
misunderstanding in regard to my
purpose and intent no matter what
the language used may have implied
I desire to say that, in writing the
letter addressed to United State'
Senator George C. Pel kins, a copy
of which appeared in the Pacific
Commercial Advertiser, in its issue
of July 31st, 190(5, and particularly
in writing that portion which has
been so strongly criticised, I did not
lute d or desire, and did not have it
in mind or in heart, to cast any as
pensions or reflections upon tbe
moral standing of the Portuguese
people, nor to charge them witb
being "alien paupers, social pariahs,
moral lepers or religious fanatics."
The terms employed were intended
to refer solely to the Koreans, Porto
Ricans and Molokans, as to which
i aces and classes, as represented in
this territory iu a great many in
stance?, the terms emp'.oyed apply
with the greatest possible force, as
the records of the courts of this
terntory, as far as the Koreans and
Porto Ricans are concerned, in re
gard to the first three terms employ
ed, and the personal experience of
reputable citizens, as reported iu the
public press, as far as the Molokaim
oro concerned, iu regard to the first i
and last terms employed, abundantly
1 did not then, and I do not now,
question, in the slightest particular,
the morality of the Portuguese poo
pie, and I believed then, and 1 believe
now, that the religion professed and
practised by morn than ninety per
cent of their number, so far from be
ing fanatical, is, iu my opinion and
judgement, entirely rational and
reasonable and supported by Divine
revelation and authority. As their
religion is tho same as that profesed
and practiced by myself, I failjto soe
how it is possible to place upon my
letter any construct' on other than
I desire now, to express my sincere
regret for the unfortunate and in
felicitous use of the language employ
ed, in that it has occasioned the
misconstruction placed upon it con
cerning.' the Portuguese people, which
was entirely at variance with my in
tent and put pose in employing it.
Trusting that this explanation of
my intent and purpose in the writing
of that portion of tho letter referied
to, may clear up and dispel any mis
understanding that has arisen as to
my attitude and disposition towards
the Portuguese people, and that 1
may be acquitted of the charge of
having ruthlessly a. id neelle?(.ly of
fended and gratuitously insulted a
a people for. whom 1 have never on
tertained other than ihe most kindly
feelings, I am,
Very tiincerely yours,
W. J. ROBINSON.
