Our New The appointment of Chief Justico Wultcr F. Fronr
Governor, as governor of the Territory is announced this week
and all discussion as to who will be the successor of Governor
Carter is at an end.
Those who know Judye Frear best believe he will fill the position
to which he has been appointed with credit to himself and honor
to the Territory. That he is an able jurist is not disputed. It, is,
however, unfortunate that his work has not brought him in contact
with the people in general, a great majority of whom would have
preferred a man better known to the masses and one whose policy
in land matters is known to bo more liberal than that of his pre
decessor. It is true that a strong feeling exists on all of the outer districts
that Governor Carter governed the Territory almost solely in the
interests of Honolulu and as it is known that Judge Frear has lived
and labored so many years in that city and has ties that bind him
to tne interests there they fear that his policy will be very much
the same as that of his predecessor. We hope that these fears are
not well founded and that the new Governor will proiit by the
errors of his predecessor and avoid the mistakes ho maae wh:io
emulating the good policies he put into force.
As a financier Governor Carter has rendered the Territory a
great service and leaves the finances 'of the country in excellent
condition. It is staled on good authority that Governor Carter
served the Territory at a great financial loss to himself and that
his personal expense account during his term of ollice ran f rom
if 1700 to $2200 per month. This necessary expense, it is stated, is
the reason why Secretary Atkinson refused to accept the ofiice
when it was olfered to him in April.
We wish Governor Frear every success in his new ofiice and
hope he may soon be able to dispell the fears of those who doubt
the wisdom of President Koosevelt in selecting him for the position
to which he has just been appointed.
May he use every effort to promote the happiness and prosperity
of the people at large throughout the entire Territory.
Our Present Educational System
Now is the time for our educational
department to get to work and see
that our public schools throughout
the different districts get the proper
material for the coming school term.
Our Superintendent of Public in
struction who has just returned from
Maui but recently, is in a fair pos
ition to judge what is lacking in some
of our Public Schools and it is to be
hoped that some of the present fos
sils who have neither an education
or a certificate should be dropped
from the pay rolls of the territory
and not be an object of charity for
the tax payers to support.
Iu Mr.' Babbits speech before thp
Normal Graduates last evening he
especially took the trouble to say: It.
is not difficult to distinguish between
the work of&a teacher, Normally
trained and one whose qualifications
are purely academic" Ilf- emphasizes
the immediate need of normal tea
chers. So do we, but, are we to wait
every year for a handful of Normal
Graduates? Shall we let the children
wait for- these future Normal In
structors? No, let Mi ui at least
come to the front and stand by thp
few academic teachers that she has
already and s?ek as many more us
the board of education can furnish,
until such time that Normal gradu
ates will become more plentiful. In
looking over our list of Maui teachers
it is the academic class that we have
at the bead of the schools in the
principal towns on Maui today. And
it is to the credit of these same tea
chers bctb in the public and in the
private schools that our children are
making such marked progress. Why,
the Congressional party are still
singing the praises of Maui's high
School exhibition which was second to
none in this territory. O Maui no
Our public spirited citizens should
get busy and try to assist the pre
sent board in making a few sugges
tions as to what is especially, needed
in some of the outlying districts.
Dont wait until the last minute to
make a kick. Do it now so that the
heads of the department can follow
your complaint up and have it veri
fied. The system now in vogue seems
to be as follows:
Once a teacher is appointed for the
term be or she can hold the position
for a year, now in order to avoid a
repition of what some of the schools
have bad to suffer during the past
we should get together and kick
early and keep on kicking until some'
thing is done to remedy the evil.
Our educational system should be
first and not last iu the minds of the
taxpayers and cil'uens of this coin

HONOLULU, June 20. - When
told of the fact that Chief Justice
l-'iear hud wired to President Roosc
veil his acceptance of the Governor
s'..ip of this Territory last night by an
Advertiser reporter, Prince Cupid
made the following statement, saying
at the time that, it could be used for
"It is about as bad a thing as could
happen for th Territory, to have
Frear made Governor. It is simply
continuing in the same way things
have been going, and no improvement
whatever lias been made. While
Governor Carter is and has been a
good governor in some ways, he has
never represented the people here.
"He has never been able to carry
out the spirit of President Roose
velt's intentions concerning this Ter
ritory, because his interests have
been too much bound up in what yon
call the "baronial families," the little
circle v hieh has the entire control of
this Territory. Frear is in exactly
the same position and he never can
carry out what the President really
wants for this Territory. He is just
as badly bound up in these "baronial
interests" as Carter ever was.
"Atkinson has tried in every way
thnt he could to carry through the
Roosevelt ideas and he has always
been given the unpopular side to at
tend to He could carry them out
now. You can say for me that I ant
behind Atkinson all the time. If
Frear is going to be governor, Atkin
son will be the next mayor, and the
first mayor of Honolulu.
"Until we have a governor sent us
from outside of the Territory we will
never be able to really Americanize
the islands. That is what is needed,
a mau who has no ties here of busi
ness or personal friends to bind him
to any clique, but can stand out and
follow the President's policies in ex
actly the way which they are meant."
District Court Notes.
. On Monday morning Makua Maihokii
of Wailiec was before the District Court
of Wailuku on a charge of assault and
battery on one Ah Mau an aged China
man. The defendent was represented by
Attorney II. M. Coke. The defendant
was found guilty and put on parole and
required to report to the probation officer
once each mouth.
On Tuesday morning- Harry Kapaoa
was called to answer to a like charge. He
was represented by attorney II. M. Coke
who succeeded in getting a verdict of not
guilty for his client.
On the same day II. M. Code defended
Mugita on' a charge of larceny in the
second degree. Manager C. B. Wells
was the prosecuting witness. The defen
dant was one of the laborers on the Wni
luku Sugar Company and was accused of
stealing one cane car stake of the value
of twelve cents. The case took all of the
afternoon of Tuesday and part of Wed
nesday. The case was the result of the
continuous loss on the part of the plan
tation of many cane car stakes. As there
was not sufficient evidence that the de
fendant took the stake and very strong
evidence in his favor the court promptly
discharged the defendant.
DEDICATION AT LAHAINA.
Upwards of 400 people, r.io.-lly
Japanese but including quite a
number of American and Hawaii:1.:!
residents attended the Dedication
Services of the new Japanese Hall
of tin; M. E. Church at Kalinin;,
last Saturday evening. Tint beau
tiful building 4U ft. by 23, has re
cently been constructed at an ex
pense of about $1200 through the
kindness of Contributors among
Japanese and other interested
II. E. Consul Saito of Honolulu
headed the list with a handsome
donation while Manager Harkhau
sen manifested deep interest. The
Hall was dedicated, under the
auspices of the Methodist Church
for use as a Voting Men's Associa
tion as well as school for little
children The credit of this laud
able enterprise is largely due to
llev. Otoo So the energetic and
popular pastor who had charge of
the services last Saturday evening.
After suitable religious exercises
Congratulatory addresses were
made by Dr. Fujiinoto, G. Masuda
Esp, Itev. C. H. Yin, the Korean
paster of Honolulu and llev. John
XV. Wadman, sup't. of -Methodist
Missions on Hawaii.
At the close of their formal ex
ercises, the guests wore invited to 11
sumptuousluau under the spreading
trees in the lawn which were gay
with lanterns and bunting. It was
a late hour before the assembly
broke up and all pronounced, the
event one long to be remembered.
The Races find the Thing tvltii the
It n miner.
This may serin a very strange
statement, but however, it is neces
sary to contradict malicious lies and
statements made by a knocker, who
being unable to run the race track
and the rac.ps has started out to do
all in his power by saying that the
Horses are nil leaving the track ai d
that there will be no races.
Such is not, the fact and the only
horse that has left thn truck through
the knocker was promptly sent back
by her fair and square owner and in
fact the only thing that has left the
track, and wo hope for Good, is the
knocker and parasite, that has lived,
and is living at present, on the horse
men and to many of whom he is in
debted. This Knocker has evidently looked
upon the "(hiL'o'' when it was ciiir
son and it is s'nceielv hoped that no
one who expected to enjoy himself on
the Fourth nil' le misled by any
statements made by irresponsible
There will be races, 11 net good on.?s
too, and from indications every race
will till and you will certainly get
your money's vorth of fair racii;g.
The officials have all been appointed
and they arc a very reliable' set of
men and the public can depend upon
the m. So patronize the races, and
not the knocker. Let the public of
Maui show what influence a tiling of
the above calibre referred to has.
