Education and Prohibition.
THE wide divergence of opinion on the question of prohibition
among well meaning and deep thinking people, was thoroughly
aired in the recent election and for the time being at leant the
advocates of prohibition are hopelessly beaten. But though defeated
they at leant can be assured that they have made themselves felt. They
have started a wave of education percolating throughout tl.eand which
cannot fail to have an elevating influence nc only upon the minds of
the younger generation bul also upon those ho heretofore have never
had the demoralizing influence of the sidoor, forcibly presented to them."
The present liquor law has lcen vindicated by the voters of the Terri-
I see to it that the law is

these parasites of hell should not be allowed
Let not the temperance people stop and
full duty they have only started. By tei
mean prohibitionists, as Ihere are many
women who do not believe in prohibition, but who know the evils of
intemperance, and feel that this gigantic question which has lieen stirring
the nations for centuries canjjfot le solved at a single effort
It is difficult to keep a moral propaganda up to that high point , of
enthusiasm necessary to le effective, therefore the educational work
should go on continuously, relentlessly, and with a determination to win
that cannot and will not fail to have far reaching results.

BY Charles E. Royal.
MINE Hostess," Madam Pele, had on her party gown,
Her garment shown so brilliantly, the heavens wore a frown,
But before we reached her warm,abode, I most forgot to tell
The guide had coyly hinted that we'd see a glimpse of hell.
So we trudged across the lava and passed great gulping cracks
With ''hot-air" more convincing than many "solid facts'";
We toasted little souvenirs with heat from "down below"
To remind us all in after years of places "some" must go.
And then we took the final hike to Pele's Furnace Room
And watched the fiendish gulping fire leap from the "erack-o'-doom.''
It seemed like a stage setting of Satan's Brocken Scene,
The smoke resembled curtains, or a moving picture screen,
And when the wind blew it aside, the tableau came to view
And held yoHi by some awful spell that seemed to chill you through.
The fountains of that living fire kept leaping toward the sky,
You could hear their fiendish seething as each one was 'bout to die,
The rocks kept sliding from each side and disappeared in flame;
It seemed 'twas nature's process, returning things from whence they came.
The moon pale at the ghastly sight, old faithful seemed to yawn,
The smoke once more enveloped all; 'twas Pele's curtains drawn,
'Tis useless to descrilw it, for human words can't tell;
You just stand RpellUmnd on the brink and say, "Well, this is Hell."
A war on mosquitoes down in the canal ne, on Panama, has practical
ly iliminated the pest. If this can be done down in the swampy
regions of Panama, why should we, in the Paradise of the Pacific, be
forced to fortify ourselves behind wire screens.
The new industry on the island of Lanai, bids fair to become one of
the leading centers in the islands. This new venture of improving the
Ranch Company's herds, and the cultivation of beets will no doubt be
watched with interest.
The man Milne, who is bringing the Examiner tourists on a trip around
the world, is a sinning example of a small man trying to handle a large
job. One would think that Hearst had money enough to secure men
with large capacity to handle his undertakings. Milne wastes fifty dol
lars in a cablegram to save fifty cents on a meal.
The new Husted's Directory contains a statement that Wailuku and
Kahului are lighted by electricity. The intention is good , but where
are the lights?
Target Practice at Lahaina.
Sergeant F.S. Bancroft, Company
I, 5th U. S. Infantry, who has leen
detailed as instructor of Militia with
the National Guard of Hawaii, by
the War Department, is on a trip
to Maui. Sergeant Bancroft went
over to Lahaina last week and gave
instructions to the oflicers and en
listed men of Company L, in advance
guard and outpost duty. On Sun
day they held a company target
practice at reduced range near the
wireless station. Sergeant Bancroft
says that some of the Uys in Com
pany L will develop into crack
shots. Tlae thing most needed in
Lahaina, according to the Sergeant
is an Armory, as at the present time
the boys are obliged to use a couple
of rooms in the Court-House.
There will be a target practice of
Company I, Sunday, the 14th, at
200, 300, and 500 yards, at the

Plans to provide the town of Wai
luku 4vith a good size theater are
underway and the new playhouse
will be known as the Orpheum. It
will be roomy enough to seat about
at thousand people, the floor area
being a hundred by forty-five feet.
The building to lie remodolled for a
theater is the one owned by Antone
Do Rcgo on Main Street, opposite
the First National Hank. The pro
moters intond to put in raised floor
ing, a forty feet stage, seats, scenery,
acetylene lights and other ticccs
siories. The location is one of the lcst 111
town, being centrally located, and,
with theater goers from Paia, Puu
ncne and Kahului to draw from, a
good company of artists and vaude
ville shows can easily get an average
of $200 or more a night. In
the opinion of experts and judging
by the number of shows that have
come to town recently, Wailuku is
classed as a very good show for
town. Conveniently located on the
line of travel between Honolulu and
Hilo, Wailuku will have a regular
run of good shows of all kinds, but
for the lack of a big enough house
for presenting large companies of
players cheaply, a lack which the
promoters of the Orpheum Theater
intend to supply.

The World's Entertainers.
Wailuku has had a goodly number
of shows, and no doubt will have
many more, but it will be a long
time before a more finished company
of artists will be seen here than the

Nadu Moret has a contralto voice
of surpassing richness, and' her

a highlander was indeed a pleasing
bit of character work.

the most clever pantoroimists ever
seen in these islands, and their act

"Poor Old Maid," as sung by Mar

pany will play at Lahaina Saturday
evening, and a bumper house is
sure to greet tl.em, as they are en
