Our Pood Supply.
WE are printing this week in another column the ordinance for
protecting the foodstuffs sold in markets and restaurants, as is
proposed for Honolulu. This seeinB to be a much needed re
form. Over in Honolulu, conditions exist such as are seen nowhere else
in America. Here on Maui, in Wailuku. in Lahaina, and elsewhere
fish, meat and fruit are displayed without the least semblance of protec
tion from the flies and other insects which abound. " We need an ordi
nance such as this over here, but it should go farther and protect the
householder from the basket peddlers who go from door to door peddling
their fruit, from the fish sellers who are continually peddling rotten fish
to those who are attracted by low prices. The importance of those matters
can not be too thoroughly investigated and the safeguards thrown around
the food products! to secure almolute purity and cleanliness is one of the
most important features of modern civic government. There are enough
.ordinances already, however, that are not enforced, without adding more
to the list, and it would be only farcial to add another of this nature un
less there was some guarantee of it being thoroughly understood, and
Every passenger on the Kahului Railroad has greatly admired the Com
pany's new depot, which was used for the first time this week. The im
provements in Kahului under Manager Williams' active interest in the
attractive Beaport town are great. The residents of Central Maui are
. pleased to see that managers of our great concerns take such a civic pride
in beautifying streets and squares and that the buildings that they erect
are in keeping with the artistic as well as the useful.
The team of large truck horses belonging to Mr. Patterson reminds one
of the horses seen in the larger cities of the mainland and gives to Wai
luku an air of progressive building construction. With too large churches
and a gymnasium in sight, to say nothing of minor improvements, one
begins to wonder who is to blame for the protracted vacation enjoyed by
the electric light franchise. '
The spectacle of a Christian Association in Christian Honolulu, spar
ring for an opening to excuse its conduct ir refusing admission to a
gentleman of arr alien race, is enough to cause the blush of shame to
mantle the cheek of every man and woman who has ever heard the
religion of true charity as preached and practised by Jesus Christ.
For wholesale theft the Advertiser is the limit. We counted no less
than four news items taken from the Maui News without credit in one
issue this week. Go to it friends; your welcome. Everyone over here
in Maui knows where you rind your news. They all read the Maui'News
. . We can with defficulty reconcile ourselves to the fact that Mr. Dodg
wui soon leave us lor a tune, vvitn his persistent good nature and
' generosity, we have come to look upon him more as an indispensabl
. friend than pastor.
A Plea For Peace.
(By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.)
WHEN mighty issues loom before us, all
The petty great men of the day seem small,
Like pigmies standing in a blaze of light
Before some grim majestic mountain height
War. with its bloody and impartial hand,
Reveals the hidden weakness of a land,'
Uncrowns the heroes trusting Peace has umde
Of men whose honor is a thing of trade,
And turns the searchlight full on many a place
Where proud conventions long have masked disgrace.
Oh, lovely Peace I as thou art fair, be wise;
Demand great men and great men Bhall arise
To do thy bidding. Even as warriors come
Swift at the call of bugle and of drum,
So at the voice of Peace, imperative
At bugle's call, shall heroes spring to live
For country and for thee. In every land,
In every age, men are what times demand.
Demand the best, oil, Peace! and teach thy sons
They need not rush in front of death-charged guns
With murder in their hearts to prove their worth.
The grandest heroes who have graced the earth
Were, love-filled souls who did not seek the fray,
But chose the safe, hard, high and lonely way
Of selfless labor for a suffering world.
Beneath our glorious flag again unfurled,
In victory such heroes wait to be
Called into bloodless action, Peace, by thee.
Be thou insistent in thy slern demand,
And wise, great men shall rise up in the land.

the home of Rev- R. B. Dodge The

been anxiously awaiting the happy
Miss Grove, though coming from
the Mainland, is well known in
Wailuku, and has been filling the
position of stenographer in the

in this position, she had become a
favorite with everyone who had
occasion to frequent the offices.
Mr. Vincent has been the assis

several administrations, and this
alone speaks volumes for his popu

business to travel over the island,
coming in contact with all classes,
and his friends are numerous.

happiness and continued prosperity.
The Womans' Guild of the Church

successful concert and sale of fancy
articles on the evening of Saturday ,
November 19. The concert lasted
about half an hour and the render

hard to make the affair a success.
The greater part of the proceeds will
probably be devoted to furnishing
the new church, now nearing com
pletion in Wailuku.
Members of the Guild take this
opportunity of thanking the public
for their patronage, and kind assist
ance, and hope to see them all
again next year with their friends

large quantities of wet goods from
San Francisco. This caused the com
missioners to grow suspicious. On
investigation they found that the
party in question was in the habit
of ordering goods for his friends,
but having them all shipped to this
port in his own name, and then
giving an order to have them for
warded to the different people for
whom they were intended. This is
indirect violation of the law, and
anyone thus employed is liable to a
fine of $1000. It was not the wish
of the Commissioners to prosecute,
but they simply used this case as
an object lesson to others. When
the case was called in court, the
accused pleaded guilty, and sentence
