SATURDAY. - JULY 30. 1910
An Institution It is about time the people of this Island should do
Wanted. a little practical promotion work for the good of
Maui. We have the climate and we have the soil, and our farmers, such
as they are, do produce wonderful cropt on their little farms. In the
Kula district corn readily grow ears over a foot in length, and the corn
stalks run from ten to fifteen feet high, and farm crops in like proportion
as to growth and productivity are raised everywhere. When watermelons
readily grow to sizes running over seventy pounds; when beans, onions,
potatoes and other farm crops yield good reti ns; when our pineapple
lands hold the reputation of producing the bi ,gest crops of any on the
Islands, it seems to us we have the very best possible resource any coun
try can have, ereat or small, rich or poor, k lown or unknown to make it
both populous and prosperous. '
If a farming population is what is wante i let us go alxmt it m a way
which will induce that class of people to co ne and establish homes for
themselves among us.
In the states there is a regular institution, where any farmer, horticul
turist or stock breeder can take the best of what he raises, at the right
time of the year, and have it exhibited. 1 ne small prizes given at such
fairs coupled with the reputation that goes vith it are incentives for pro
ducers to do their best which go a long wa towards making them con
tented and prosperous besidesgiving the c mmunities they come from a
reputation which they should have.
The institution we are thinking of is the County Fair, where once ewfty
year the farmer can show the best he can produce, from chickew Shear
ling steers, from berries to pineapples or from turnips to imi'ff -V'
Several small industries are in danger of becoming vlostarts", among
them the manufacture of mats and hats. Formerijl the-Hawaiian women
were skilled in the manufacture of mats from tough fiber of lauhala
leaves, now the lauhala mats are a rarityj.yhe making of straw hats
was a common enough industry at onp$'tme, but today it is a neglected
art. 'Shall nothing be done to revive them? Are all these little things
not worth the trouble of trjf.g to have them kept up since we have gone
so deeply into big thiryjj- that the country can afford to let them die out?
These small industries once' helped to make Hawaiians lead contented lives
in their hufjijj&i cfantry homes. In schools' and at home let some
thing bg done to keep the art alive. An exhibit of its choicest specimens
w?(akd;tlen will keep it alive.
There are those who think we have not the right kind of an atmos
phere for an institution like the County Fair to thrive ton, but we think
otherwise. The hardest part will lc to get it started and while it may
never become a financial success, yet, if it but give our plain people an
incentive to better their surroundings something shall have been gained
which will mean more for the happiness of our ordinary people than the
looks of a satisfactory financial balance sheet will.
Senator Coelho in a letter to the Evening Bulletin make the asser
tion that the Maui News is opposing his senatorial aspirations. The
present editor of the Maui News is not worried with what will take place
in the near future. At present the editorial worry is confined to that of
getting readable copy with which to fill up the paper. In the hunt for
interesting copy we came across the following:
" "I am working with my republican friends to be nominated by our
own convention. At the same time and even now, I will permit Home
Rulers and Democrats to use my name on ther ticket as a senatorial can
didate, without waiting for the action of our Nominating Covention.
if not nominated by my party I will still le a candidate
for the people and will run as an Independent Republican.
We have taken the liberty of publishing the foregoing extract from
the privately circulated campaign handbill issued by Mr. Coelho, to help
him along in his campaign. He may not have favored some of the voters
with a copy, and we are doing our best to let our readers such as are
interested in such things see what sort of a senatorial boom the senator!
Judge Daniel Webster Burchard of the Wailuku district court is laying
down a new rule for inflicting punishment on illicit sellers of intoxicating
liquors. It is said his predecessor usually lets off the first offender with
a fine not exceeding 8100.00, and that the judge did not strictly follow
the policies of his predecessor.
Injthis particular case the offender was an old, partly blind and al
most helpless Chinese, and instead of getting any work out of him the
jailor will have to board and care for him at County expense. A man of
over seventy-two years of age, the offender is unable to do any severe
If the harshness of the sentence inflicted will deter others from selling
liquor illicitly then the action of the judge is all right and the policy a
good one. There are those who say, however, in this case, that if a
monetary fine had been imposed the party whom the old man shielded
would have paid the fine, and the blow would have struck the real offender
Another Blind Pig
Sonada, a Japanese resident of
Waikapu, is another man to tempt
Providence and Judge Burehard's
policy on blind pigs. Sonada man
aged to sell a bottle of wine, in the
jubilation following the result of
Tuesday's plebiscite, and fell into
the hands of a prying police officer.
He was allowed his liberty on a
1300 bail, and has engaged W. F.
Crockett Esq., the Attorney, to de
fend him at the trial today.
About three months back Sonada's
wife was arrested for a similar of
lenso, and got out of it by forfeit
ing $150 bail.
