Chief of Detectives Taylor seems to be doing excellent work in
Honolulu, and if he succeeds in breaking up the gambling hells of
that city he will have accomplished more for the good of the city
than can be estimated.
It is useless to nrguo against the !
valuo of forts to insular possessions,
for such a plea flics in t In; face of
military and naval experience and
authority. To thd gineral ar
irutunit, as outlined above, we nviy
add that fortified harbors arc needed
to afford security for ships which
may be assailed by a superior forec
and for merchant vessels that may
be pursued by cruisers. So many
and vital are the uses of seaboard
batteries that all maritime, powers
have, or intend to have them, though
naturally enough, for the sa,ko of
economy, ihey would like to get along
without them if they could.
A new Regulation Inspector of Schools, James C. Davis
lor the Teachers, has, put into effect a new rule which re
quires each teacher to write a programme of work to bo done
during the whole day and then a report of the work for each day
after the work has been performed.
At first thought this may seen putting too much work on the
teachers who are now working for greatly reduced salaries but on
reflection it will appear to an experienced teacher that the plan
will be of great help to &11 of the teachers who have not had years
of experience and will not be found much of an additional burden
to those who are experienced.
Maul has always been looked upon by ex-
perienced teachers as a farce and if Mr. Davis proves himself, of

Advertiser on Fortifications.
The latest article opposing fortifi
cation of the Harbors of the Terri
tory has called forth the following by
the Bystander in the Advertiser of
the 10th. ,
The anti-fort correspondent of the
Maui News would profit by a study
of military science. His idea that
ships ought to take the place of
forts, leaves no hope for the place
which needs a safeguard in tha event
of the ships being defeated or dis
persed. In all well-regulated sys
tems of seaboard protection from an
enemy are three lines of defense;
first, ships; second, encircling forts;
third, an army in the field. When
all co-operate or the first two co
nnerate. a seaport is supposedly
safe; but there are times when, if
the lice of defense is long and tne
al sauadron small, all ships are
called away to other threatened
points. Then It is the business of
forts and troops to hold the second
and third lines against all comers

The Maui man contends that forts
here would not nrotect th? other
islands, wh.ch is both' tiue aud im
material. As long as- the other is
lands have no ouiet harbors, coal
niles. garrisons or naval stores, they
iii-e Knfe from hostile occupation. An
onomv rines not bother with an is
land that can not afford him useful
supplies, a protected base or control
of a cable. Or. this account but one
of the Ladrones was touched by
Uncle Sam in 1S1J3 and that was tho
one with a harbor and the capital
town. Where outlying islands have
protected harbors, as Hi'o expects
soon to havej forts are provided for
them as a matter of course. Even
tually Wailuku may come into the
same cas?; but sc long as things
stand as they are on Mauianri Kauai,
the presence of hostile ships in th( se
waters would mean no matei'ml loss
to them save that inflicted through
the suspension of commerce.
Heavy Rain does Damage.
The heaviest rain ever seen on
West Maui visited the islani Monday
about eiyht oclock in the evening.
Much damage was done to the ditch
es and flumes about Waichu and Wai
lire and the people are still without
water there. Without a moments
warning small streams became push
ina torrents and there were narrow
escapes for some who lived in the
track of the mad waters. At Wai
hee a Chinese poi maker heard the
water and large boulders coming but
before he could open his door the
water had struk the house and was
moving it down toward the sea. He
rushed out the Hack door and finally
succeeded in reachirg a place of
safet y after going tnrough wo lor up
to his arms. He had eighty dollars
in silver in his room but the watei
was over the money before he had
time to grab it. His house was car
ried some distance down the decline
and broken up and the money lost.
Another house that stood by his was

At Kahakuloa houses were swept
a.vay and two children in one of the
houses had a narrow escape. One of
them was carried down stream some
distance and left in shallow water
where she remained all night and was
rescued the following morning.
In front of the Wailiee school
boulders fwur feet long and thirty
inches through were washed over the
bank ol tho stream and left in t lie
road, blocking up the entrance to the
school grounds as well as stopping
trafic on the public road below.

The statemenf. by the President to
the California delegation that the
American-Japanese situation was
more serious than was generally
imagined, and the impression deri' ed
from his talk that Japan was ap
parenlly not anxious to reach a
selUement. of pending questions,
aroused a feeling of apprehension
among public men today. The Pre
sident, it was also learned, was being
actuated by grave reasons that had
not been made public.
This feeling was intensified by ihe
mystery with which the administ.ru
tiou sought to envelop its plans, and
by the readiness with which the Cali-
fornians agreed to recede upon the
school question in the face of the
overwhelming sentiment of their own
state. . i oliticians at the capital
reasoned that powerful arguments
must have been employed by the
President to induce the Californians
to run the risk of political suicide by
going contrary to tho sentiments ol
Members of the California delega
tion were embarrassed today by the
disclosure of the essential features of
their conference with the President,
after they had pleclgad themselves to
remain silent. They also received
word from ! onie that was not comforting.

admitted todav that the offhand ad

as skillfully outlined by Secretary
Hoot in the statement made public
