The Best Handbook Yet
The Advertiser in reviewing tlfe
advance sheets of the Hawaiian
geography hy C. W. Baldwin says:
A few advance copies of the new
geography of the Hawaiian Islands
prepared by C. W. Baldwin, now
principal of Kauluwela school, and
approved hy the Board of Education,
have just been received. The hook
is published by the American Book
company and is copyrighted both in
America and Great Britain.
It is undoubtedly the best hand
hook of Hawaii that hasi ever been
gotten out. The Promotion Com
mittee could not do better than to
sec that it is readily obtainable by
tourists, and there is no resident of
the Islands, but will find it a con
Venient and interesting reference
book for the very many things that
everyone who wants to feel well in
formed concerning the Islands ought
to know, but which unfortunately
he finds he is not quite sure of.
The maps have all been prepared
especially for this work and are the
most uprto-date maps of the Islands
in existence. In addition to the or
dinary style of maps, photographic
reproductions of Dean W. T. Pope's
relief maps of the several islands
have been introduced to advantage
The illustrations have been well
chosen and well reproduced and so
far as illustrations can within the
. scope of such a work as this, they
give comprehensive and accurate
ideas of conditions and scenery.
In the preface Principal Baldwin
thus states the principles that have
guided him in the preparation of the
geography. " the author has
had to rely on teaching experience
in determining' the general nature
and scope of th'o' work. In view
of the fact that there has been a lack
of accurate data on the Hawaiian
group, it has seemed necessary to
conform the text to 'the interests of
the teacher as well as to the requir
monts of the - pupil. The book is
designed primarily as a source of
information whereby the subject
may be presented topically."
It is asasourceof information that
the book is of pre-eminent merit.
This information is given in com
A rending of the book convinces
at once of Mr. Baldwin's thorough
equipment for this work along the

As Discribed by Miss Irene
In Open c Court by Judge
The following excellent article up
on Maui's famous mountain was
written by an enthusiastic Maui
girl, Miss Irene Aiken, for her Com
mencement essay at Punahou. She
graduated in June's class, and many
who heard her, say that hers was
the best description of Haleakala
they had ever heard. The article
as she wrote it is given below.
One of the most weird and faeinat-
ing places on this earth is" a ruin.
The very air of such a place is
fraught with mystery and seems to
he full of unseen beings. The echo
of footsteps is startling for they
icem to disturb the sleeping inhabi
tarns whom one expects to, meet at
every turn. The silence is! so great
that the slightest movement of an
insect or the waving of a bit of vege
tation attracts immediate attention
The feeling of the supernatural is so
strong that one is filled with awe
and the dreams of the people who
formerlly filled the empty rooms
and corridors become very real. In
appearance a ruin is only a pile of
mouldering, masonry; jagged walls
scarred and worn by the storms of
many reasons, with yawning gaps
where some great force has crushed
and crumbled them; here unre
cognizable heaps of dust where once
rosea chimney; there a chimney
still partly standing hut half con
cealed with vines; everywhere over
grown heaps, large and small, of
stone, brick, and tiles, being grad
ually converted into dust by the
forces of time. Such is the ruin of
the habitations of men. How much
grander, more mysterious are the
ruins of the habitations of the Gods?
How much more intense is the sup
ernatural element? How eagerly
one gazes at the spot around which
centers some legend or story. It is
easy to conjure up misty figures
hovering over a spot where some
legendery god committed a crime
and the imagination peoples with
many warriors the scene of a great
Such a place of hidden wonders
ind suggestions of the marvelous is
the crater of Haleakala. The very
atmosphere is charged with awe,
and the vastness and gradeur of the
place make it a fit dwelling for the
gods. The precipitous walls are
worn into ravines and gorges leav
lines of the geology and the topo- ing many weird shapes standing out
graphy of the Islands, and these
subjects lie naturally at the foun
dation of such a work as this. Mr.
Baldwin knows the geology of the
Islands thoroughly because he has
studied it on the ground; and' he
knows the topography because he

as you are doubtless aware in
the matter of the estate of Henry
Cooper, a minor, deceased, mi the
28th day of .September, I appoint
ed Mr. J. Lightfoot Amicus Curiae
for the purpose of investigating all
matters and things concerning said
estate. This Mr. Lightfoot did,
making his report to me in the
premises. Thereafter, a hearing
was had before me in which you
and several other witnesses under
oath gave oral testimony. At the
conclusion of the hearing, Mr
Lightfoot, acting as Amicus Curiae,
made certain suggestions to the
Court and moved the Court for an
order committing you to the Grand
Jury on the charge of Perjury; and
1 have called you to the Bar to
hear what I have determined on
this matter after giving it cat of til
"You are aware that the Rev. S

there were no witnesses present to
the transaction. Unless therefore,
other evidence can be found heal

the money is concerned, I should

to the Grand Jury for investigat

The Rev S. Kapu further test!

that you had never returned the

You testified under oath that on a
certain day, at noon, you had pur
chased four oxen from some 1111
known man, that you had paid for
the saino in coin, that you had re
ceived a receipt for the coin, that
you had not examined the brand
of the oxen and had received 110
bill of sale therefor. You further
testified that thereafter, a claim
had been made that these cattle
belonged to this estate, but that
you ignored the claim. Thereup
on Mr. Lightfoot called several
witnesses to prove that you had re
ceived. five oxou from tjie estate,
that you had never returned the
samo to the estate and that only the
money paid hy you was $2, paid to
Puana, for labor in driving tho
oxen. If tho testimony of these
witnesses is true, then you have
