McGregors or Kihel.
AT the last meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, the matter of
recommendations for the spending of the $9,000 appropriation
for a steamer landing was left open until after getting an expres
sion of opinion from the Inter-Island Steams'hip Company.
It seems to us that this is the most vital question which the citizens
of Maui have had to decide in years. The importance of a steamer
landing on the leeward side of Maui cannot be overestimated, and for
this reason, if none other, all the citizens, regardless of party or com
munity interests, should get together on some common ground, and
submit recommendations to the Harbor Commission, such as will show
that body that we know what we want, and are willing to side-track
every other consideration for the welfare of Maui as a whole.
If we are going to get our share of the great influx of tourist travel
which is sure to come to these islands in the next few years, we must
be prepared to take care of it, and one of the first steps for Maui to do
is to get this steamer landing. Every citizen is outspoken that nothing
short of a steamer landing will suffice; the only hitch is where that
landing shall be. Why not leave that to the Harbor Commission? We
can only recommend, and if our recommendations are not unanimous
they will have little weight with the commission.
This appropriation of $9,000 of government money is tied up and
cannot be used for any other purpose, and if we go to the next legis
lature asking for more money without first getting together and decid
ing that we desire the present available money spent with the ultimate
object of securing a steamer landing, the opponents on the other
islands to any further appropriation for this purpose, will have ample
ammunition with which to block us.
Let these points sink in, and then let every friend of Maui stand to
gether on this subject and show to the rest of the territory that the
slogan of "Maui No Ka Oi" is no mere byword. .
The Harbor Comirission have at least made a record for themselves
for the speed they have shown in getting into trouble. And why not?
What can a dry goods man, or a hardware man, or a professional poli
tician know about the management and handling of ships and shipping?
It is hard enough in these days of progress and advanced methods, for
men trained in their particular line of business to get along smoothly,
but when men are appointed on a commission to control and direct
matters about which they know absolutely nothing, trouble will follow
as surely as day follows night. When appointments are made in this
territory based on the qualifications of those appointed, then, and not
till then, will this tiresome bungling of matters vital to the best inter
ests of the territory cease.
What would the depositors think if the directors of one of our banks
should appoint the office boy to run the bank. The average office boy
knows just as much about banking, however, as some of the recently
appointed officeholders know about the matters they are called upon to
The old adage that "deeds speak louder than words" finds no place
in the politics of Hawaii. It is the blowhard who gets the plum. If
you don't believe it, just take a look for yourself. The latest commis
sion is a fine example.
For the ten years to 1910 the number of deaths from plague in India
was 6,473,704. The highest in any one year was in 1907, when the
.deaths numbered 1,315,892.
L'envol ol Married Men.
(Bj Louis Schneider, in Puck.)
WHEN our wives' last garments are buttoned
Securely and true up the back,
When each hook and eyelet is fastened,
4 And naught in the slightest shall lack,
We shall rest and, faith, we shall need it
Lie down for an aeon or. two,
Till he who loves all good helpers
Shall set us to work anew.
And those that were good shall be happy
And far 'yond the golden stair
They shall fashion the costumes of houris
Most wondrously young and fair.
They shall drape in diaphanous textures j
O'er shapes that will hold them in thrall.
They shall work for an age at a standing
And never get tired at all.
And all we shall know will be praises,
For none will the helper blame,
And no one shall work through suasion
Nor yet for a fleeting fame,
But each for the joy of doing,
And each with a fancy free
Shall drape yea, and clasp as he likes it
For shapes as they ought to be!

THE stranger took n pasteboard box
I from bis pocket and put it on the
shelf of the roll top desk. It was
too hot to work, and the man at the
desk lazily tolerated the Interruption.
. "You have read In the columns ot
the dally press," the caller glibly be
gan, "that the common frog is the
quickest and cleverest of all fly de
stroyers. In certain Chicago shop win
dows frogs are' now being exhibited,
and the lively and thorough manner in
which they snare the unwary flies
draws large crowds of amused watch
"Go on," said the man at the desk.
"Naturally," the culler went on, "a
good many people object to the frog.
which is a somewhat cold and clammy
creature, and its general use will be
retarded by this fact. Our Mr. Frtsby
saw the possibility of offsetting the
popular prejudice by inventing an or
tlflcial frog and here It is." He open
ed the box and took out an imitation
frog and placed It on the desk. "There
you are. That's Frisby's Electric Frog,
and it is warranted to keep the preui
ises entirely free from flies. See? You
hook this wire on to the nearest elec
tric lamp, and then press the button
on the frog's back. So. Now watch
the frog's red tongue. We have it
geared to thrust Itself out and draw
Itself back twice a second. It is care
fully soaked in a solution of honey and
Porto IUco molasses and draws every
fly In a radius of fifty ' feet The
tongue, working rhythmically, pulls in
the flies and they are immediately as
phyxiated in the frog's interior. See,
there goes a fly! There go four more!
I tell you, friend, Mark Twain's Jump
ing frog was never in it for a minute
with Frisby's fly snapper. And in the
whiter time you can use it for a pa
perweight!" The man at the desk suddenly awoke.
"Say," he said, "I'll need a paper
weight next winter; bring it around

GOVERNOR . F0SS, PRESIDENTIAL POSSIBILITY.
THE Democratic party is suffering from a Burfeit of presidential
possibilities. Favorite sons of states pop up every now and then
in some cases two sons at a time. Massachusetts has fallen
L into line with a pair George Fred Williams, suggested by Mr.
Bryan, and Governor Eugene Noble Foss, who also has been mentioned
as a vice presidential ornament Governor Foss is an example of the
business man In politics. He used to be a Republican, bat he discovered
a few years ago that he was considerably more of a Democrat When
Congressman Loverlng Of the Fourteenth Massachusetts district died
Mr. Foss was nominated on the Democratic ticket for election to the
unexpired term. To the surprise of the nation he carried this old time
Republican district by a majority of 5,640. Massachusetts Democrats
"cal'lated" that Foss would make a good runner for the governorship,
so they nominated and elected him. Governor Foss is a brother of
George Edmund Foss, Republican congressman from Illinois.

The German proprietor of a "wet
goods emporium" was bemoaning the
fact that an Irish rival was getting
most of the business of the neighbor
hood. "You're not progressive enough,
Hans," a customer told him. "Gllboo
ley's got you beat a mile. That sign
in his window, 'Ticker Inside, alone
draws a lot of business."
The next day the Dutchman's win
dow blossomed oul with" aTtig sign,
"Ticker Inside." The same customer
soon came in and expressed his ap
proval that Hans was thus "getting
wise" to the requirements of the busi
ness. "But where is the ticker?" he asked,
"Dere lss it," said the Dutchman sol
emnly, and he pointed to the clock.
