Siin Francisco nnd Her Surdens.
THE incendiary speech and actions recently of some of the labor
union haulers in San Francisco, comes with bad grace, especially
when these same people stand in tho shadow of that horrible tra
gedy ho reet ntly enaeUd in !s Angeles. The business interests of San
Francisco have lung been straining at the chains with which the union
leaders have bound them, and now when they have secured tho patronage
i)f the United States government fr the Panama Exposition, and dare to
raise Jluir heads, they are threatened with ruin and disaster. Law and
order always triumph eventually, whatever the situation, and this ever
lasting principle stands as a promise to the business men of San Francis
co, even in the face of these threats by the lalxr leaders.
A cause may be deserving, but that fact does not excuse violence on
the part 'of its adherents. The use of dynamite to attempt to wreck a
company's property, is no more criminal than any other means that may
be employed lo injure that company's property, and any efforts are com
mendable that are made to end a demonstration, by men who thus loose
sight of the rights of others. Open antagonism that breeds lawlessness and
desperation, precludes the savirg calm that is the only hope of victory.
That unionism has accomplished good, must be admitted but not
through violence. When unionism seeks' to dictate and usurp control,
however as it has done in San Francisco, it transgresses the natural law
which allows every individual to act in accordance with his own beliefs,
in so far as ho does not trespass on the rights of others. Businessmen
should have the privilege of dictating their own policy, just as much as
their employees are entitled to a fair wage for their labor. By no system
of logic, however, can it be made to appear proper for men, influenced
by others who have no immediate interest in the controversy, to dictate
to a company what business policy shall be adhered to.
It is not an- edifying spectacle for the rest of the world to behold the
almost constant lalxir demonstrations in San Francisco, such as has been
the case in recent years. These latest utterances from men who, some of
them, have been raised to high positions by their fellow men, will be
likely to react on themselves with overwhelming force, when tho better
element becomes thoroughly aroused and are prepared to assert them
selves. ' '
Tho Honolulu Bulletin tells its readers that the water has been turned
into the Kula Pipe Line. This is prematura, however, as the lino is not
yet completed. Engineer Harvey expects to be ready to turn on the
water in about ten days or two weeks. The line will le a great benefit to
the district but instead of costing less than the appropriation,-it will cost
about $20,000 in excess of the appropriation. ' ...
' It is earnestly to be hoped that the Board of Supervisors will be able to
have the much heeded changes in the arrangement of Malulani hospital
attended to in the near, future; This institution is doing a fine work,
but is seriously handicapped. ' The proposed addition of a proper oper
ating room would add much to its efliciency.
Our offer in another column to supply tho Hawaiian Star and the
Mati Nkws for 88.75 for a year, is too good to be overlooked,. We extend
this offer, to all old mbseribers who wish to send in their money for one
year in ad-ance. Those who do not take the Maui News, should avail
'themselves of this offer at.once.
The Hidden Music.
1 , (By F. M. Owen.)
WKJ asked win-re the magic came from
That, made her so wondrous fair, 1
As she stood with the sunlight touching
, Her gloss of golden' hair.
And her blue eyes looked toward heaven
As though she could see God there.
"Hush!" said the child, "can't you hear it,,
Tho music ghat's everywhere?"
(iod help usl we could not hear it;
Our hearts were heavy with pain;
We beard men toiling and wrangling,
We heart! the whole world complain,
And the sound of a mocking laughter
, - ' We heard, again and again,
But we lost all faith in the music
1 We hal listened so long in vain.
"Can't you hear it?" the young child whispered.
And sadly we answered, "No.
We miglft have fancied we heard it,
In the days of long ago;
But the music is all a delusion,
Our reason has told us so,
And. you will forget that you heard it
When you know the sound of woe."
Then one spake out from among us
Who had nothing left to fear;
Who had given his life for others,
And U cn repaid by a sneer.
And his face was lit with a glory,
And his voice was calm and clear
As iie said, "I can hear the music
Which the little children hear."
Bright Outlook Ahead.
Last Friday Mr. Hugh M. Coke,
formerly editor of this paper, who
has been promoting a stock com
pany to exploit a tract of over
twenty thousand acres of oil lands
located in the eastern part of the
State of Utah, received a cablegram
from his brother Dr. P. S. Coke
that the company's well digging
outfit had struck oil at a depth of
two hundred feet. This proves the
value of the property and eliminates
tho speculative element incident to
nil such enterprises on a new and
almost unknown oil field.
The oil is of a parafine base
which is a very high grade of crude
oil an I readily sells at twice the
price of crude oils of asphaltum
base such" as are produced in the
southern California oil fields.
Quite a number of Mr. Coke's
Maui friends took stock and vare
interested in the enterprise. They
are very well pleased over the good
new which puts their venture on
the basis of an investment with
prospective returns much sooner
than even the most sanguine among
them had dreamed of.
A Ladies' Club will soon lie or
ganized in this town.
A tea party in honor of Mrs. II.

The Chinese celebrated their three
