Control of the Pacific Ocean.
ARCHIBALD Colqtihonn, a noted British writer and expert on
oriental affairs, declares in the North American Review that the
only way to insure peace on the Pacific "is to maintain a proper
balance of power between east and west, and unless the British empire
and the United States are prepared to cooperate, the task will be almost
impossible." Mr. Colqtihonn holds that the Anglo-Japanese alliance
was a gross diplomatic blunder, at least for Great Britain, and his opi
nions on this subject are now very generally shared by Englishmen.
His views are summarize! thus:
"By helping Japan against Russia, Great Britain helped Germany
against itself. Great Britain today has to reckon with the diminution
of its own power on the Pacific and with the destruction of the Russian
fleet, both tending to increase enormously the importance of the Japan
ese navy. The British navy is concentrated in home waters, against
the possibility of hostilities with Germany. The old Asiatic stations
are almost stripped of British warships, and Japan is left paramount.
Meanwhile, Japan has arranged an understanding with Russia, is
vastly strengthening its hold on China, and Mr. Colquhouu believes, is
secretly for its own purposes fomenting the anti-foreign sentiment
among the Chinese. Japan, with Russian co-operation, is endeavoring
to compel China to an alliance distinctly anti-foreign."
It is worthy of note that recent dispatches announce a Japanese
naval program this year contemplating the construction of five super-dreadnoughts,-
which will actually exceed in tonnage the total of that
to be laid down in British yards this year for England's navy. These
Japanese ships will each displace 28,000 tons, and will be armed with
13.5 inch guns. It is expected that these ships will be completed by
1914, and their construction will give the Japanese navy nine "all big
gun" ships by that time.
The Board of Supervisors.
TITHE new Supervisor from the district of Hana, came to the board
last week armed with a wonderful resolution. It was all the
more wonderful, after the supervisor had been seen in action, as
it soon became patent to everyone that the resolution was not his, but
had been put in his pocket, he being simply the instrument through
which others worked.
The resolution in question makes the Chairman of the board of
supervisors, the whole show, and therein lies the danger. This county
is and has been fortunate in the possession of honest, conscientious
and painstaking supervisors, and the present chairman is without
doubt a man of proven ability. This known ability causes us to won
der why he should allow himself to be drawn into any such arrange
It is well known to every thinking man that men chaff at dictation
It matters not whether the dictator has or has not the good of the com
munity at heart. It matters not whether he be saint or sinner, the
very fact of there being a one man power causes others to see red.
When there is so much internal strife among party workers in the Re
publican ranks in other counties as at the present time, it seems doubly
unfortunate that anything of the nature of the resolution referred to
should have been introduced. It was unnecessary from a working
standpoint, and it will surely react to the disadvantage of the Repub
lican party. Those responsible for the resolution will, in our opinion,
be the greatest sufferers, and the temporary benefits which may be de
rived, will be swallowed up and lost sight of in the revulsion of public
Mr. V. L. Vettlesen has started a new printing office in town. This
alone shows that Wailuku is growing. We are inclined to think, how
ever, that Mr. Vettlesen hardly realizes what he has undertaken. If
there is a business which requires the maximum of labor and worry for
the minimum of profit, it is the printing business.
What Is Time?
(Ity William Marsden.) '
I ASKED an aged man, a man of cares.
Wrinkled and curved, and white with hoary hair.
"Time is the warp of life," he said, "Oh, tell
The young, the fair, the gay, to weave it well!"
I asked the ancient, venerable dead,
Sages who wrote and warriors who bled,
From the cold grave a hollow murmur flowed.
"Time sowed the seeds we reap in this abode."
I asked the dying sinner, ere the stroke
Of ruthless Death life's golden bowl had broke,
I asked him, "What is Time?" "Time," he replied,
"I've lost it! Ah, the treasure!" and he died.
I asked a spirit lost; but, oh! the shriek
That pierced my soul! I shudder while I speak!
He cried, "A particle! A speck! A mite!
Of endless years, duration infinite!"
Of things inanimate my dial I
Consulted and it made me this reply:
"Time is the season fair of living well,
The path to glory or the path to hell."
I asked old Father Time himself, at last;
But in a moment he flew swiftly passed;
His chariot was the cloud, the viewless wind
His noiseless steeds, which left no trace behind.
I asked the mighty angel who shall stand
One foot on sea and one on solid land;
"By heaven's great King I swear the jnystery's o'er;
Time was," he cried, "but Time shall be no more."

Johnny Williams who is playing
with the Victoria team, the tailend-
ers in the Northwestern leiigue, won
his game the other day, and- the
coast papers say he pitched great
bull. In three tunes up ho got two
hits. He struck out seven nu n.
Although the Detroit Tigers have
gained a big lead, they will not
canter home with a pennant, by a
long shot. They may win, and are
strong favorites just now, but it
won t lie a runaway- race by any
The lead they have gained over
their seven rivals lias alxmt put
them in a position where they will
have only to break even in the re
maining battles to be played. They
should do this. But they have been
lucky extremely lucky This break
from Dame Fortune cannot last all
Hughey Jennings has a wonder
ful bunch of clouters. Their attack
is the strongest of any team in
either of the big leagues. While
they do not play the "inside" ball
that characterizes the work of the
New York or Chicago clubs, they
have to date seldom fallen down
with the old-fashioned attack of hit
and run from first base, or any old
sack, for that matter.
Even in close games the liger do
not attempt to sacrifice the runner
from first to second, or from second
to third, in hopes that a long
sacrifice fly will count just as much
as a hit. They simply go in and
slug. Now, this' method of offense
is immense as long as a team is hit
ting and luek favors their hoists,
but just wait until they start hitting
the ball right into the opponent's
hands. Then Jennings will be
forced to change his style
Cobb and Crawford are keeping
the team up in the race, although
Delehanty has been hitting with
regularity of late, and especially in
the pinches. Take Cobb and Craw
ford out of the lineup and the Tigers
wouldn't be in the first division. It
is a two-man club as far ns the of
fense goes. At the same time Oscar
Stanage should come in for a - little
of the calcium. He, too, has Inen
very much on the job with his stick
at the opportune time.
The crew of Connie Mack are hit
ting the balj unmercifully. They
outhit the Tigers 19 to 8 in one game
in Detroit and yet lost. That shows
that either the Tigers were awfully
lucky or else the Athletics must
have leen exceedinly dumb on the
Mack's pitchers are just beginning
to display the form expected of
them. That tells the story of why
they are not up with the Tigers.
Coombs, Bender and Plank were ex
pected to do all kinds of things to the
opiKising batsmen, but they failed.
And then the Athletics' catchers
have been very much off-color at
times and allowed-men to run wild
on the bases.
It looks as though young Mcln
ness has developed into a wonder
ful hitter. Harry Davis had been
schooling this boy to play first base.
Harry realizes that his days as a
diamond star are about over. So,
for the past year, Mclnness lias
been taking les.-ons in the fine art
of handling the small mitt
If the Yankees had not suffered
as never a team did before whh sick
ness and injuries, I iM'lieve they
would be at the Tigers' heels right
Comiskcy's White Sox are the
dark horses of the race. The Chi
cago bunch has one of the best pitch
ing staffs in the league. ' Doc White's
grand twirling has counted for a
whole lot, believe me.
While the Boston Red Sox have
been playing good ball, I cannot
figure how they can lie counted in
among the first three. Outside of
Joe Wood, their pitchers arc ye in
ordinary. Clootte is a fairly good
man, but the others are no bears.
Cleveland has a few promising
youngsters, but I cannot give them
a look-in for the first divison.
Charley Somers has but one first
class twirler, and that is Gregg, a
left- bander, who has lots of smoke
on his delivery.
Washington and St. Louis are not
possessed of even first-class minor
league material. It will be a great
race between them to see which will
hold the cellar position.
