Los Angeles, Nov. 10, 1!K)S
Editor Maui News:
1 wrote you in October that Taft
would surely be elected and ii the
Islands expected any thing from
Congress von would have to
elect a Republican legislature and
Delegate. Honolulu papers just to
hand with the result of the election
and I want to congratulate Maui,
yes, all the Islands. You did well.
Now it's up-to the members 10
legislate in the interest of tho peo
ple. Carry out the pledges made
and remember "Tire People Rule,"
if not today, Inter, when they
know their strength. Then the
unfaithful ones will realize to their
sorrow their reward. Never forget
the fact what benefits the people
benefits the Islands'.
I want to see the Legislature
passaliberalj-gafe, sane land law.'
Let tho land be given to the people
at a reasonable price, on long time
payments and enough of it to sup
port a family. And instead of "by
auction, let it bo by drawing so the
poor man gets his land at a fair
price. At auction the price is run
up so high that the poor man
stands no show. I want some
government land but am .willing to
take my chances with the i;est.
Such a law would encourage
hundreds now on the islands to take
up land on Hawaii. Thousands of
small farmers means Statehood.
Mr. Shingle said in one of his
talks to the voters that wo might
look for Statehood in ten years. I
want to go on record when I say
that we shall not have to wait half
that time if the laws are made in
the interest of the people and peo
ple are encouraged to come, the
next four years will tell the story,
and if we do our part, I hope to
see at the next Presidential Elec
tion little old Hawaii come to the
front with her three or four, electo
ral votes. So get a move on.
Mr. Editor, one of these days I
will send you a rough sketch (and
get you to whip it into shape) of a
bill, that, should it become law,
would protect and encourngo the
people to tnko up land and at the
same tinio prevent land specula
tion. Pubs such a law and who knows
but that you and I may be known
in'tho future as the saviors of Ha
waii, for remember that it was a
jackass who uncovered what became
the greatest mine in Idaho after.
his master an export miner had
spent months prospecting without
finding a trace of gold and it was
11 tender foot who discovered the
great gold fields of Nevada after
experienced miners had been ovor
tho ground and said there was no
gold. And wasn't ft some common
gocse that saved Rome? Enough,
I'm roaming. I don't expect there
will bo much. tampering with the
tariff but at the same time it is ad
visable for tho islands to join forces
with the beet men and be prepared
for a fight. Some of the people
want a change. Tho shoe men of
tho East want freo, hides and the
cattle men of tho West want high
er duty, and I hear tho Sugar
Trust wants freo raw sugar and wo
want protection. So it goes, every
body for themselves, but with. Un
do Joe in the Chair in my opinion
thero will bo very little- change in
tho next two years.

Former Wailuku Chinese
Teacher is Married.
Mr. Ching Tong, formerly teacher
in Wailuku Chinese mission Church
was married at his home on Satur
day November 21st by Rev. Theo
dore A. Waltrip of Kahului.
The wedding was a very pretty
one. The bride from Honolulu was
attired in a beautiful Chinese 'dress.
About thirty-five of Mr. Ching
Tong's intimate friends were pre
sent. Mr. and Mrs. -Ching Tong
were the recipients .of many beauti
ful gifts, and also a considerable
sum of money given them for the
express purpose N of entertaining
their many friends.
The following week on Saturday
evening in the parlors of the
Alexander House, the bride and
groom spread a sumptuous dinner
for about thirty of their English
speaking friends. After the guests
had enjoyed themselves at the tables,
the-eyening was spent most en

On Sunday at the 'Benevolent
Society's building, a banquet of
Chinese dishes was served to about
