In the current news reports is an item that Ililo has not suffi
cient hotel accommodations for tourists, which in view of the in
creasing tourist travel to Honolulu looks bad for the rainy city.
However there is hotel room for at least from twenty to thirty
tourists in Wailuku, Maui. Aud for attractions Iao Valley and the
llaleakala crater are bits of natural scenery worth all the trouble
of a trip to Maui. Nice roads and automobiles make t raved ling on
Maui pleasantand profitable.
National .Sank Last December a report was sent out from
Reports Washington to the effect that two of the Nat
ional Dunks of Hawaii had failed to turn in the reports called for
by law. To people who understand finances and financial matters
it was a very grave charge fraught with mischief to our banking
institutions, on Maui especially, whore three of the four national
banks of the Territory aro doing business. The deputy comptrol
ler explains how the mistake happened and the explanation is sat
isfactory as far as it goes.
Hut, is there not something else back of all this knocking und
snubbing Iliwaii, which sterns to have become, tho fashion J in
Washington? Can't this Territory find out the man responsible
for the discrimination against Hawaii and make an example of him?
Or find the cause ao least and have it cut out, so it cease to trouble
us in our healthy desire to live at peace with our brethren and the
For the Re'ief Kula district is suffering for lack of water, Kula
of Kula. is suffering from drouth, Kula people have lost
a great deal in property, crops and other things, but haven't lost
any of their staying powers! An additional affliction hive fallen
to their lot, in the shape of typhoid fever, which may or may not
become epidemic, but the simple faith of the people in the .better
times and rains to come" remain. They are talking of growing
crops, and are blessedly hopeful!
buch people are worth doing something fori When they have
10 pacii ineir water all the way over from Makawao and send to
Wailuku for coffins for their dead, and still hold on to their dried
up little farms, they don't know when they are down and out.
All they are asking for is to have a pipe line laid over to Kula
such as the government has proposed for their relief, and people
endowed with the qualities they have shown under stress are
worth helping or doing something for, and we hope tho Legislature
will assist by providing the means for carrying out this public im
provement for the relief of the stricken district.
Lincoln's This is the Lincoln anniversary month, and there
Anniversary, is a movement on foot to hold a fitting celebra
tion in honor of the martyred President.
It is uothing but right ro stop a moment from the everlasting
chase after dollars to honor the memory of a great American like
Lincoln. In schools, in churches and wherever man's worth is
held up for the ad-niration of mankind or as nn example of life
worth living and of great achievements accomplished Lincoln's
name is written among tho best. We know a little of the creat
war President. He was the soul and cente rof that band of men
who struggled and fought to keep tho Union together. The tms
sions engendered by that strife have perhaps cooled, but the
dominant(ideas and spirit which outrode the clash of steel and the
tn..Mri.i i i .i ...
siuiiu ui uiuuu uuu ure oi me great civil war have been driven
deep into the body politic of the nation, and remain there a prey
to the erosion of changing ideas, and to the frettings of men
whose views are changing and have changed as views of men
If we are to honor the martyred President let us do it fittingly
in the true spirit of Lincoln who never forgot in the midst of open
and secret enemies to do aught and to speak only "with malice to
uuuu uub cuuiuy io an."
A Park and Play- Every now and again when anything in
ground for Wailuku. the line of outdoor snorts or nil mitdnm-
gathering is proposed the question for a.suitable ground rises like
mu,Iuu gnosi to numinate us and to lay in dust the pride of what
uauu 10 ue me secona city in tne kingdom."
Let all public spirited people of Wailuku lay aside personal
prejudices and grievances and get together for once and holler for
a town park and public playground.
The legislature is about to get together for its biennial session,
and we should take a leaf from the methods pursued by that pro
gressive little city of Ililo and get our legislators to set aside or to
sanction a deal whereby the long felt want of Maui's County Seat
may bo supplied. It won't require an appropriation, but only an
understanding with the proper department or bureau in charge of
There is a strip of land on tho ra.d to Waikapu which has been
taken and made use o! by tho Wailuku plantation having an area of
from four to six acres, and our idea in its simplicity is to exchange
this bit of public land with the plantation for a plot or land a little
below Market street to be used for a public playground aud park.
Anyone who objects to this can have a column in this paper for
him to state his objections.
Aside from a town park and proposed playground, something
should be done to make a public park of the -Yosemite or Hawaii?'
Iao Valley. It is an asset worth looking after, and any tourist who
comes to Hawaii and misses looking into this valley goes away
without seeing half of what is worth seeng on these Islands in tho
way of beautiful, natural scenery.
Several Prominent People
Visit Old Capital.
Mr. EviTtoii, secretary of the
Senninns' Institute, Honolulu, spent
Tuesday night in Lihainannd Wed
nesday in Wailuku. He was ac
companying his friend, Mr. Inve
sted, a commercial man of Honolulu.
Mr. Haleakalani's new automobile
stopiM'd suddenly on Sunday morn
ing nnd kept not only the Sabbath
in puritanic fashion hut refused to
work on Monday. Expert Jordan
of Honolulu happened along on
Tuesday nnd arranged the commu

Mr. Andrews, chicken expert

days on Maui looking over ranches.
Miss Knapp, principal of the Ka
niehameha Preparatory School
spent last week with her sister in
Mr. Ivan Dow, representing the
Mayflower Quartz mine of Nevada
City, spent Tuesday night in Laha-
ina. On Wednesday he had a look
at several of the large plantations of
Maui. Mr. Dow has an excellent
automobile and gets around the
island very quickly. He is going to
the volcano and will take in the
large island pretty well.
As To County Loans.
When the County of Maui found
its hope of raising money for im
provements by bonds frustrated
two years ago, through the
Supreme Court's decision that it
could incur no bonded indebted
ness, having no right of taxation
the County abandoned tho plan as
settled beyond dispute, at least for
the next two years. It ii how
ever, probiible thai the County
would have won out had the matter
betn brought before the United
States Supreme Court, as the last
volume of the Opinions of the
Attorney General of the United
States contains an opinion on the
subject rendered at the request of
the Secretary of the Interior, the
reverse of that of the local Supreme
M. Bonaparte thinks that the
Supreme Court erred in constru
ing the word "effectivo" in the 'nst
section of the net ns meaning that
the President's approval would be
necessary to make it a law. It
had been made such the moment
it was passed by a two thirds ma
jority over the Governor's veto,
The Attorney General holds that
the word thould be construed in
accordance with spirit of the act
and the evident intention of the
Legislature so as to mean that the
bonds isnued under this nci become
effective on the approval of the
In view of the effort of Governor
Frear to have the amendment to
the Organic Act include an autho
rization of county loans, and con
sidering that one of the first things
to bo tackled by tho coming session
of tho Legislature will be in the
adoption of some kind of a bill
making it possible for tho count
ies to borrow money for improve
ments, it is interesting to see the
light in which the unbiased ones
look at the matter.
The danger of letting the count
ies open up bond accounts is some
what exaggerated when it is re
membered that the bonds have to
have the approval of tho President
before they are worth anything to
money men, and the President
will be pretty well informed as to
tho ability of the county officials
to handle the money in an honest
manner before he approves. Gar
