Needs another It is reported that Governor Carter has tin
Rest, nouncad that he is perfectly willing thai his
daughter should marry a Jrp.
ferhaps nothing has been said or done by the Governor that, has
so lowered him in the estimation of his fellow men as this fool
White and yellow wont blend except in streaks and the Governor
seems to be afflicted with the latter with a vengeance. His state
ment will not be accepted as the truth by any of his countrymen
and but few of the Japanese. The Governor and the intelligent
Japanese know that the two races are bettor oil apart than they
are together and any attempt at assimilation will result disastrously
Americans are always pleased .to note my advancement made by
the Japanese and are their true friends but that friendship does
not extend to advocating falsi; ideas nov the intermarrying of the
races that must necessarily result in blighting the lives of both
The average Anglo Soxon father would make the services of the
coroner necessary should he see a mob of men. women, and child
ren boldly enter his daughters bath room and in her presence
bathe as is the custom of the Japs, but Carter seems to be an ex
ception and would probably smilingly approve.
The Japanese are so far from us in the standard of morality re
ligion and customs that the proposition made would bo considered
too silly for a moments consideration did it not come from the
chief executive of the Territory.
Aud why this outburst of affection? Is the Governor so anxious
for a second term that he avows his readiness to debase his own
daughter in order to win the support of Roosevelt or is ho suffer
ing from over work and in need of another rest?
Japanese The settlement of the San Francisco. Japanese
Exclusion, school question has been made and even the Jap
anese must admit that they have not gained anything by the issue
they have raised. While the better class of Japanese may have
the privileges of the schools cf the states for their children the
price they pay for the privilege is exclusion of the laboring class
and much inconvenience and hardship to the better class in prov
ing their indentity and occupation and the attendant dillicultics in
making the same.
The Japanese will however gain much in avoiding certain serious
trouble in the states as their presence there was not wanted and
would not have been endured much longer, Rnosovclt and his arm
ed intervention to the contrary not withstanding.
What effect the enforcement of the new law will have on the
labor supply here remains to be seen but it is more than probable
that as the exodus will be entirely cut off to the mainland there will
be a larger number here than ever before until such time as they
are called to Formosa where the Japanese are going into the sugar
industry on an extensive scale.
To any one who is acquainted with the determined character of
the Americans living on the Pacific coast the stand they have
taken was not a surprise and that they won out over the opposition
of the President was to be expected.
That they did win out means more for the people of the coast
than any thing accomplished since the exclusion of the Chinese.
The coast will now progress in a natural way and her people
reap the benefits of their labors.

Editor "Maui Nkws"
Herewith please find extract
from "The Literary Digest" on tho
stit joct of ITorbor Defence.
In the face of this revelation is it
not reasonable to assume that the
highest military authority in the
country has advised past Conjures
ioual Committees on Fortification
that floating batteries ore better
than stationary ones, that submarine
boats are more practical than a tix
ed mine field, in a word, that tho
command of the sea is infinitely to
be preferred to shore works of what
ever fit rend h when the question of
war is considered.
Ships are what we need, and in the
language of Horatio Nelson "Our
frontier is the enemy s licet, it is
there I expect to carry out my in
si ruction.'-'," his instructions were to
"s'nk. burn and destroy." with the
enemy's fleet destroyed, there would
be no work for "Bystander's" fortifi
cations or arrry in the field to do.
It is absolutely impossible to work
l.iSMi iruns with only a maximum
force of 14,000 men a force not. suf
ficient for one sliitt for one third that
number of guns and to protect liar
bors from the raids of a big hostile
fleet when you have no mines or men
for submarine defense, soys William
M. Mason. Yet such, be asserts, is
the position of the United States in
regard to her harbor and coast de
fenses. Mr. Mason is the Washing
ton representative of The Army and
Navy Journal. Writing in Ridgwa.y's
(New York) he state that should
war suddenly occur the country
would be caught with no mines for
the harbors and only a sufficient
number of trained artillerists to man
one-third of the big guns ami trior
tars already em placed. The Govern
mcnt has a plant, he admits, "but ii
has not a sufficient number of men to
to operate it." To quote further:
"Tills article is not written for the
purpose of betraying military
secrets; it is to let the American
people, who have been kept, m igno
ranee ot tho true situation, know
how utterly defenseless theii- Dig
cities, teeming with business that
makes the United Slates the treat
commercial ration in the world, would
be in case there should be some un
forseen hitch in the peace maintain
ing work of the State Department,
and there'should suddenly be a de
claration of war against us by one of
the bit; military and naval powers.
"With perfect confidence that r.o
one having Knowledge of the situation
will be forthcoming with a denial, the
assertion is made here that there is
no reason to-day why a powerful anil
energetic enemy could not toss shells
from his men-of-war into any of tho
large coast cities of the United
States. This fact is kno? n to Japan,
to Germany, or France, to the mili
tary authorities of every nation with
which this country might some day
it n tr

lint itself at war. The trouble is
not with the guns, which - are as
effective as any' constructed in the
world, nor with the training of the
men it is because the artillery has
suffered from Congressional indif
ference, and while million" have been
spent to put up the guns, the de
fenses are sadly lacking in men, and
no provision has been made for suo
marine mines .'.
"With a total of 1,199 cuns of oW
calibers mounted in our forts, only
390 are in commission, the remain. ng
809 are greased, covered over with
canvas, and be in their deserted forts
like some huge dead monsters. There
are no men to man these guns, and
no one, whether a military man or a
civilian, will pretend to sav how it is
expected to use them in time of need.
Vclnnteers can not be depended up
on to operate sea coast defenses an
artilleryman can not be made under
a year, and ther are few militia or
ganizations that pay any attention
to coast defenses."
Moreover, "there is not a harbor
of the United States which could be
propu'ly mined within a reasonable
length of time." He goes on to say:
"It has become an accepted mili
tary maxim that mines should be
laid in harbors within twenty-four
hours after war is considered immi
nent. Tho entire submarine defense
system should be completed within
forty-eight hours. This rule could
not possibly be followed by the Unit
ed States at tho present time. There
is not a harbor in the United States
today provided with the- means
either material or personnel, but
principally the latter for an effes
tive mine defense.
"The Artillery Corps ha9 done air
in its power to remedy this evil, but
the lack of money for the manufac
ture of the loi pedoes and the lack of
Congressional authorization for the
enlist ment of 5,043 additional meD
needed to operate submarine defenses
hive prevented it from making any
