A little woman in black was making
her way toward the judge's desk.
She was short, slender of build,
decidedly bantam of weight.

"Let her stay where sho is, judge,' '
pleaded Schuster, in trembling
tones. I'll feel better if sho stays
just where sho is.''
''Madam, this maiv-yqur hus

was overyliody's favorite. But in
the courso of events, it transpired
that the giant kanaka could not
pitch, noc field his position, nor
hit the ball, so when tho season was
over and Boston drafted him, Long
heaved a sigh of relief and began to
shako his own mitt.
Barney, however, failed to report
to Boston. Instead, ho stuck right
in Honolulu and contented himself
with amazing his countrymen with
his assortment of curves. Perhaps
his countrymen have become jerry"
to him in the meantime. Atoll
events, ho wants to "come back,"
but thoy won't stand for it.

Another Epidemic of Cholera is Threat
Although the dread Cholera is
making a determined effort to gain
a foothold in Honolulu, still at the
present time there is really no cause
for alarm. Honolulu, has now a

taken steps to combat the forward
march of the diseaso with all tho
power at the command of science.
The citizens of Maui can cooperate
with the medical authorities here in
preventing the diseaso from getting
into this island by faithfully ob

within tho harbor, ponds, rivers and

Last Friday night when the

many people were hurrying homo
from the theatres, and everyone

Secretary Wilson, Defends the Proposed
Treaty With Canada.
"Tho pending reciprocity treaty
with Canada will go some distance
toward meeting tho demands of tho
people at the last election without
interfering with the policy of protec
tion asapplicd to the whole world."
This is the conclusion of James
Wilson, secretary of agriculture, in
an answer on .behalf of the Taft
administration to tho National
grange's declared opposition to tho
agreement. Tho answer is in tho
form of an open letter made public,
addressed to tho legislative commit
tee of the National grange, Concord,
Secretary Wilson argues that tho
cost of production in tho United
States and Canada is more nearly
identical than it is between the
United States and any other country;'
that the same difficulties with regard
to farm labor exist on both sides of
tho international line, and thai
Canadian and American farming
methods anrvirtually the same.
Secretary Wilson says in part:
"This treaty is not one sided,
giving our markets for meats and
grains to the Canadian with nothing
in return. Wo get in tlw Canadian
woods, timber products, things very
much needed, as our homo supplies
are so much reduced that prices
have gone up markedly in the last' '
few years. The southern states havo'
a new market for their cotton-seed
oils, which will be valuable to
"Canada opens her doors to our 1
fruits, which will give to our or-1 .
chardists a growing market for their
products. Fish comes into tho
United States free, which will mean
quite s much to our people as tho
opening of our markets to Canadian
poultry products. Wc are to havo '
free trado in seeds, which is well,
because many seeds are more valu- "
able coming from northern latitudes. v
Wo do not grow enough flax, to V
make our oils and will derive bene-"'-'
fit from tho freo introduction of'
flaxseed. Freo barbed fencing will
bo a boom to our farmers.
"Our relations with .the people of
Canada are different from our rcla- .
tions with any other people In
tho first place they are a kindred
people, and their territory runs from
sea to sea along our northern bor
der. We had reciprocity with" Cana
da not many years ago. That was
abrogated more through. . temporary
.sentimental considerations than
from any other causo."
Secretary Wilson concluded that
if the United States handled Cana
da's surplus wheat, American trans
portation facilities will tend to re
duce tho price of bread to the
American consumer. IIe suggests
that tho Canadians will also ho ablo '
to furnish cattle feeders for the corn
belt of the United States, and that
meats will bo reduced in price.
