THE MAUI NEWS-
Those Judical It seems to us that President Taft did the only scn-
AppointmentS. sihle thing the chief executive of a representative
government could doin npiointing Rolicrtson, Rohinsou and le Unite on
the recommendation of the delegate, the har association, the territorial
republican executive committee and other I iodic. of men whose opinions
should count as against the whim of any one man regardless of his ollieia
It has heen intimated that the people of Hawaii are a cantankerous
lot who are always at war with theotlicials or some of them and that w
should not he taken into the confidence of the powers that he for fear of
starting a row.
We do not take this view of the situation hy a long way hut if it is true
there is hut one thing for I'ncle Samuel to do and that is to disfranchise
every man in the territory and apoint a commission to manage our
affairs for us. We believe in representative government . We believe it
is the right of every citizen to express his views mi any public matter
whether we agree with him, or he with us, or not.
The iMisition of chief executive of this territory is a most dillictilt po
sition to fill. Much to the credit of each of the former governors as well
us the present one can lie truthfully said. We U'licve that each of them
has made mistakes. It is our right to criticise any ollicial act of which
we do not approve. It is our duty to give credit for whatever good an
In regard to Governor Frear resigning on account of not having his way
as opposed to that of strong representative organizations we think the
matter foolish. It would lie childish of the governor to resign lieeause his
opinion is not given more weight than the opinion of the most influential
organizations of the territory. He should not have expected any thing
else of the president.
There are as able men as Governor Frear who have given their support
to souse of those said to have leen opposed hy Governor Frear. Their
opinions are of value as well as Governor Frears.
The popularity of such men as Hon. II. P. Baldwin, Marston Camp
bell, J. P. Cooke and many other leading citizens is due to the fact that
they are always ready to listen to the people. If Governor Frear will
profit by example he will find his otlice much more pleasant to himself
and more agreeable to the people.
For Governor Frear to resign and lie succeeded by Kuhio would lie a
calamity for the reason that if Kuhio is appointed a democrat will be
elected to Congress.
Kuhio is doing well where he is and the party needs him at the head
of the ticket.
The people are better off as matters stand even if they do take issue
with the governor occasionally.
The Tipping The question of tipping has perhaps done moro to in
Sy6tem. terfere with the complete success of many undertakings
than is generally realized. It is not, however, until one has experienced
the changed conditions brought aliout in, let us say, a hotel where tips
are neither allowed nor expected, that one is able to appriaciate
the remarkable sense of freedom and satisfaction that exists in those cir
cumstances. At no great distance from St. Clement Danes in London a
hotel has recently leen opened where no tips are allowed, nor indeed are
they expected, and it is most remarkable and equally significant that all
connected with the establishment give an impression of brightness, satis
faction anil contentment.
The feature that perhaps impresses one most is the genuine interest the
attendants evidently take in their work. They are exceptionally active,
alert and thorough, and upitear to lie actuated by the genuine desire to
do their work well, instead of, as is so frequently the case, expending
tlir energy in striving to reap as big a harvest as possible from the tip
to bt? doled out hy their customers.
The question of tipping is one of considerable importance. It is not
right that a certain class should hi' tipped, ami another class should not,
that the man who docs certain work for which he is already paid should
be tipped, while a man doing work of another nature should receive
nothing. It is impossible to disguise the fact that tips amount to either
a form of bribery or to an admission that the man is underpaid. The ens
torn of tipping most assuredly tends to encourage dishonesty, injustice
and avarice, and it will le a great day when the custom is entirely
abolished, even, if necessary, by official net ion. Every laUircr is worthy
of his hire, and an employer should pay his employees a proper salary
This is the merest justice, and without it true success is hardly possible
The tendency all through the ages has U-en to lay up treasures upon
earth," and it is only by opposing this desire, pandered to by the one
and encouraged by the other, that we shall cease to lie guilty of putting
a "tumbling block or an occasion to fall" in our brother's way.
Do Not It is pleasant in these times to hear of occurrences that show
Hate the better side of human nature. It is not worth while to hate
any one. Life is too short to cherish or ill-will hard thoughts. What if
that man has cheated you? or that woman played you false? or some
friend forsaken you? Let it all pass. What difference will it make to
you in a few years, when you go hence to that undiscovered country.
All who treut you wrong will le more sorry for it than you in your deep
est grief. A few more smiles, a few more tears, some pleasure, much
pain, a little longer hurrying and worrying in the world, some hasty
greeting and abrupt farewells and life will lie over, and -injurer ami in
jured will be laid away and forgotten. It is not worth while to hate each
other. This is our advice, and like salvation it's free. Try it during 1010.

Maunaolu Seminary Will
Give Dramatic Recital
Premier Laurier is well satisfied with the relations existing between
Canada and the United States; so well satisfied indeed, that he does not
want to have them meddled with on any pretext.
The fact that a Massachusetts man has been elected mayor after meet
ing five defeats has given renewed courage to men everywhere who thought
they were out of politics for good.
Maunaolu Seminary is planning
for the evening of the 2!th a pro
gramme of more than usual interest
which will be a treat indeed to the
people of Maui. Miss Evelyn Mac
Dougal, a dramatic reader, well
known throughout the States, who
is visiting our Islands, has consent
ed to give a recital during her brief
stay here. Of her work, Rev. P. C.
Fletcher, lecturer, says. "I regard
Miss MncDougal one of the most
charming readers and imperson
ators of today. She is cultured, art
ful, magnetic, soulful. It hasjbeen
my pleasure to hear her several
times and the "last time was al
ways the best.'
Miss MacDougal will be assisted
by Miss Irene Ralcoin, Soprano,
and a programme which will insure
an evening of extreme pleasure is
pear next week.
