THAT the diplomat of F.iirov are grappling with a serious
question in the Moroccan Iifiiculty is certain. That they will be
allc to untangle the skein is not nearly so certain. Wherever
France and Germany are vitally concerned, the troubles of the diplo
mats are doubled. France is still smarting over her degradation at the
hands of Bisntark in 1870. and Germany has long been considered the
bully of Kurope. According to a French journalist this crisis over
affairs in Morocco is the ninth time since 1875 that Kurope has been
trembling on the brink of war, yet in all these crisis has diplomacy
been able in the last resort to keep the peace, but the game is dangerous
and at any time a spark in w set fire to the magazine, As long as the
matter is left to diplomacy the danger need not be regarded as serious;
but it is incidental to this process that appeals to popular passion in the
jingo press create a state of mind among the people that may easily re
sult in an explosion.
Despite the popular opinion France it better equipped with the
sinews of war and more thoroughly prepared for any eventuality, than
any other power in the world today. Again the French are a frugal
people, atul today France is the only nation in Europe which could go
to war without borrowing money.
It appears certain that the financial difficulties of Germany are partly
the result of the orations of French finance. The German monetary
world was caught at a time when it was unable to resist the sudden
hostility of the l'aris bankers, who four weeks ago began to cut off
credits which in any way concerned Germany. A good deal of Berlin
paper is held in Paris and considerable by Swiss bankers, who are
debtors of the Paris bankers.
After all the work on the part of President Taft, to get Congress to
" ratifyTTirKCnprocity agreement, the people of Canada have turned it
down. It is a safe prediction that when the votes are all counted it
will be found that it is itr the manufacturing centers of Canada where
the strong anti-reciprocity feeling exists. - Away dowu in the Maritime
Provinces the poor farmer has been crying for reciprocity these many
years. The only market for their products is found in the New Eng
land States, and under the present high duty they realize little or noth
ing, and fanning to them under present conditions has resolved itself
into little more than a hand to mouth existence. And all this to pro
tect the more powerful manufacturer of Upper Canada.
Those Honolulu roads are enough to make one seasick. They hardly
need a speed law over there, as it is all a life is worth to drive along
King or Beretania street at a ten mile an hour gait. One Maui man
who took his automobile to Honolulu said he felt like getting out 'and
walking every time he went for a drive. And they talk about corduroy
roads on Maui.'
"Maui No Ka Oi." This slogan was flung far and wide in Honolulu
last week, and there were none to dispute it. Maui may well feel
proud of the crew which represented it at the regatta, of the loyal
rooters who followed that crew to defeat, and of the spirit which made
it possible for both, crew and rooters to make the trip to Honolulu.
The Great Blanchard, he of ice cream fame, was in town this week.
He confined his investigations to dried fish and pickles while on Maui.
Perhaps he was afraid to tackle the ice cream over here, since he found
the Honolulu ice cream pretty hot stuff.
The Maui delegation to the regatta are loud in their praise of the
captains of the Mauna Kea and Mikahala. May their shadows never

IN lawful pursuits, whatever you do
Building a mansion or mending a shoe
Be honestly earnest in all of your work,
Never attempting plain duty to shirk.
Whether you climb, dig, delve or burrow,
Do each thing completely; always be thorough.
Slipshod expedients avoid as a snare.
Perform every task with painstaking care.
Negligent methods won't bear the world's test.
Give it unstinting always your best.
Whether you labor with head or with hand
Writing a book or tilling the land
Do everything well, as well as you can.
No more is expected by God or by man.
No less will suffice for your own self respect
Or save you from sting of willful neglect.
The purest of pleasure can only be found
In virtuous effort, healthful and sound.
This truest of maxims cherish and nurse,
"Work is a blessing and ease but a curse."

. His Mind.

No wonder Sir Edward Boyle, baro

chairman, aud who has been in the
diplomatic service id Turkey arid

was upset. Fawncy Sir Edward

hearing two natives of San Francis

would think we in San Francisco
are as dense and ridiculous as an
Englishman. Oh, fawncy, it made
Sir Edward's hair stand on end. Is
it any wonder that as soon as he ar
rived at the Willard he started to
explode, telling right up and down
what he thought of San Francisco.
"Fawncy the barbarians Baying a
thing like that,'' he said.
Sir Edward comes from a distin
guished line of ancestry, his ' papa
having been one the famous men of
This is Sir Edward's first visit to
this country. He is much impress
ed with the eastern part of the Unit
ed States and the people in this sec
tion, but when he comes to San
Francisco he is so nearsighted he
can't focus of it at all. '. -
"The worst thing about San Fran
cisco," says Sir Edward, "Is that
the people don't know that there is
such a place as Europe.
"It was with a great feeling of re
lief that I crossed the Rocky moun
tains and headed for the east,' he
"I had heard much of America,
but the Pacific coast is impossible,
and I must say that I felt like an
Englishman going home when I
reached the east. Out in San Fran
cisco one wouldn't kriow that the
people had any idea there was such
a country as Europe Why, really,
I was surprised, not to say shocked,
at the unculture of your western
people. Coming across the contia
nent I heard two men talking and
one of them, by way of illustration
of his subject, remarked:
"Why, you would think we in
San Francisco are as dense and ridi
culous as an Englishman.
"Fawncy it, as an Englishman,
aud as ridiculous, too. Well, I must
say I have breathed with a great
deal more freedom since I have
reached your part of the world."
Sir Edward is a member of the
liberal party of Great Britain. He
believes that the recent victory of
the government over the lords will
result in important reforms. He is
certain, he says, that next year an
Irish home rule bill will be passed.

Warner, wheeling round.
