SATURDAY. DECEMBER 20, 1908
A Happy With this issue we close our record for the year, l'JO.H,
New Year and we are tempted to wander back in curios retros
pect over the past.
Of the world at large we leave the retrospective tas-k to others, and
we confine our brief summary to local happenings.
The drouth that has prevailed in the Kula district was al nost unbrok
en for the whole year and the suffering of our neighboring community
is simply appaling. Kula eggs, chickens, turkeys, corn fed pork and
other substantial fixings of the flesh pots we love have practically disap
peared from the local market as a result. Our sympathies go out to the
stout hearted residents of that stricken community who still cling to
their little homes perched up on parched mountain side where the
packing of water forms the dreary daily routine of life today.
We would have hopped the coop long ago bad we been un
fortunate residents of Kula under stress of present conditions. But it
seems Kula has not been the only sufferer, the Konas of Hawaii are
also suffering worse than Kula and the pity of it is they have borne
their portion in m.mly silence, while we on Maui have' made this
whole Territory miserable because of our adlictions. Our heart goes
out in sympathy to the sufferers of Kula and Kona, and we wish them
A Happy New Year.
With the coming year a new administration assumes charge of our
County affairs. The old board of supervisors which goes out of cilice
with the close of the year leaves a record of much work well done. Of
the $190,000 taken out of the County Treasury by them about $125,-
000.00 went for County roads and bridges, not counting a mere baga
telle of three thousands or so that went forolher public improvements,
and which is a pretty good record for the republican board of supervi
In politics the people of Maui decided last November to carry on its
public business under the same good old republican banner. They
have tried the experiment of sending a minority of democrats to the
republican school, we presume for the purpose of acquiring republican
training, but no matter, the republican majority still rule the roost
and things will still go on in the good old republican way.
Now before we quit this interesting retrospect we want our readers
to make a few good resolutions for the new year our space is getting
over crowded, so we have to say it briefly. Make a few good resolu
tions and try to keep them for one whole month. We know it is good
practice for we used to do it ourselves and we commend the practice to
others ns good start for beginning the New Y'ear.
We wish all our patrons a Happy New Year!
Kahului. Elsewhere in this issue we present an account of
what is going on in Kahului, a port which has thriven on govern
mental neglect! In the past all what the Territory has done for
Kahului is to station a pilot there to bring vessels to anchorage
and collect the fees according to law, and we blush to think thdt
the government did not show enough good grace while about it to
put up a light for the ship masters and pilots to su-er b$ when
they wanted to come into port at night. Hut we are pleased to
hoar that the Federal people intend to put up a regular light for
.the port of Kahului. It is timo they did do something for the pro
tection of the great steamers which make Kahului their regular
port of call.
As a bit of scenery Kahului may be a pretty small place but pri
vale enterprise has made it into a pretty snug shelter for shipp
ing, and the amount of shipping business handled thore is enough
to make other places green with envy. One-fifth of the entire
direct to the mainland export trade of this whole Territory is
cleared through the port of Kahului. When you come to look at it
in that light where one-half of it goes through Honolulu one tiftli
Kahului, and three-tenths to be divided between Hilo, Mahukona,
Kaanapali, and ports on Kauai, the importance, of Kahului is shown
in a stronger light than mere words can put it.
The old saying is "Eo noia Maui" liberally interpreted in English
"Maui Wins! or Maui is the winner." It is short and sweet and
to the point, and sums in a phrase the spirit of the Maui folk from
the dim past as well as the energy, enterprise and spirit of the
business loaders of Maui of today.
Beef Prices We received notice from the butcher j that we
Again. oiust pay fifteen cents a pound, fpr bee I fifter New
Year. This is no joke or rumorBitherp.ii4fCyou,'UVHilukn beef
eaters, will get the same entle're'minder if you haven't got it yet.
If the newspaper, jeople could only get into a combination and
e forcer the jSubBCTiption price for newspapers up twenty per cent
-v-Vi W( wouW not feel so discontented over our lot, but they do not
;' , know enough to do that! Drat'om! Wo eat beef and must suffer,
our wages are pitiably small, and all we can do is to kick, kick, till
something gives away. We were reminded the other day that our
remarks on the beef question were in-opportune. Honolulu paper
pooh poohed and .said it was just an idle rumor, and in a hush-a-by
lulf-a-by baby crooning tone-ear marks of those in the ring made
little of it and tried to hush this squalling fact, to silence and ob
- livion, but it won't down. We know all about this rise in boor. Wo
saw in the news items by the last mail that our good old Uncle
Samuel prefers to bring over fodder from the mainland for his
cavalry horses to buying it from the local business people, and the
beef market rnuy get like treatment when it comes to getting beef
for the soldier boys. For ourselves we will eat less beef, lletche
rise, and consume more tinned beef and salt pork for they are
cheaper, and in so doing wo kill the two fool birds with the one
proverbial stone, in that it will cut down the slaughter of cattle
and beat the out of their expected profits. (
A Plea For Married Women.
A married lady accosted our
printer's devil on the street the
other day and gave him Hail Co
lumbia for what she saw in some
of the Honolulu papers in regards
to Hon J. M. Howsctt's undying
belief in the impropriety of marri
ed wonuai teaching in the public
schools, especially those whoso hus
bands have beer, receiving hand
some salaries either from the gov
ernment or from private concerns,
and more especially those who re
ceive monthly dividends whether
from stocks of the Pineapple com
panies, or the Wineries, 1ji the
Haliches, Plantation stocks, or the
Nahiku rubber companies in the
near future. She got hold of the
timid lad's ears, hitherto untouch
ed by the delicate and dainty glov
ed fingers of an enraved Madame,
her cheeks resembled more the
color of the paint on the roof of
the new Wailuku Town Hall
(when the painters get through
dubbing il next month) then the
roseate hue cf the evening glow of
one of Tavarnier's master pieces (of
Madame Pele's subterranean a
bode) which that great artist had
depicted on canvas! Uluefield ba
nanas would not' give any adequate
idea of the color of her face, for
the dark brilliant carmine hue on
her feminine brow was an uncom
mon sight ir.deed to behold, and
one that will take years, yea, cen
turies, to cast off from one's mind,
even in this busy gossippy town of
"Remove mo from the Board of
Education Pay Pvoll? Me? Dau
ghter of and the lawfully
wedded wife of Monsieur ?
I earned my degree in one of the
leading universities of Europe by
hard toil and great application to
study. I have been teaching in
the schools-of Hawaii for the past
fifty years for the paltry sum of
less than one hundred Dollars per
month, much less than I would
have received from the Sultan of
Morocco or other Oriental Potenta
tes. Look at the prominent men of
affairs, cabinet ministers, legisla
lators, artisans, and other who
have passed their tender years un
der my faithful charge. Are these
not records enough for any woman
to be proud of, even more than the
highly praised Empressed Dowager
of China who firmly believed in
Confucius until her dying day?
Remove married women from
teaching foices of Hawaii? and for
naught? Why, I would rather the
single men who play ukuleles all
day, and the spinsters who ought
to have more sense to get married
to some sanctified soul to adorn
his lonely cot and bring happiness
into his home with her womanly
charms, and as the years go by re
cline upin the family sanctuary
and gaze upon their lovely off
springs with such warmth of heart,
such as only two divinely mated
souls would hope to be blessed, yes,
I would rather the young girls
who ought to be in their mother's
arms or somebody's arms be re
moved than the noble and digni
fied married women who have de

words snewas about to fall when
a stately looking gentleman ad
vanced and held her up for a while
until she had fully recovered from
her fainting spell. In the mean
time our printer s devil left her
into the loving care of the tall
gentleman, and hurried to tell the
foreman of what had happened
and to let the editor know of the
finger marks deeply impressed up
on one of his auricular organs, and
with tears in his boyish eyes beg
ged the editor to sing the praises of
the married women school teach
ers, but not to hay anything about
the spinsters, for he has one more
tar yet unniarred and unscarred,
and he is unmarried too.
