THERE is before Congress a bill for the reform of bur national
currency and banking unanimously reported by a commission
representing all shades of political belief and which is known
as the Aldrich bill, merely because former Senator Aldrich was chair
man of the commission, says the San Francisco Chronicle. The bill,
whether good or bad, is the result of the most thorough and evidently
conscientious study of the subject in this and foreign countries that was
ever before given to it in any country. And the documentary evidence
and substantially all of it upon which the report of the Monetary
Commission was based is accessible to any American citizen who desires
to study it. All the libraries have the volumes and many private in
dividuals, and additional s can be secured if needed.
We suggest that this expc snce of all commercial nations which is
so readily accessible is the best source for information for all who do
not care who wrote the bill, but only whether it is a good bill or not
and desire to form an independent judgment. From time to time we
get articles in the cheap magazines as a rule attacking the bill because
the cheap magazines mostly think it popular to attack "Aldrich" and
"Wall street" and employ only writers who will cater to prejudice.
We have seen no comment in any such place whose writer gave an in
dication of knowledge of the subject.
Now, there may be "bugs" in this bill. It is along bill, revolution
ary in many respects. It is certain that there are those likely to get
the ear of any public body who would, if they could, cause the insertion
of some phase or feature apparently unobjectionable but capable of be
ing so construed as to effect what neither the Commission nor the pub
If there are such clauses, or if there is anything wrong with the bill,
now isthe time to locate it. There is time enough, for the measure
will not be reported to Congress until next winter. There is no other
constructive measure before the people, and the thing to do is to study
tiie Aldrich bill for the purpose of finding what, if anything, is wrong.
It is for this object that the National Citizens' League has been form
ed. It is not a league of bankers there are no bankers in it, or at
least among its officers or committees.
It is a league of borrowers to a great extent large borrowers, whose
interest in sound banking and currency is greatest because they will
suffer most from mistakes and imperfections.
Of course, the league does not care for objections because the bill has
borne "Aldrich's" name. It would not interest the league if it were
known that the devil wrote every word of it. The question is, is the
bill good or bad, and in either case why?
Now that electricity is a certainty for the towns of Wailuku and Ka
hului, and with a prospect of the streets being well lighted in the near
future, the citizens should get together and prepare for some kind of a
celebration. This is the longest step forward the County of Maui has
taken and it should be fittingly celedrated- Ideas as to what should
constitute this celebration differ, and we would like to have the ideas
of different citizens. The columns of the Maui News are open for
suggestions, along this line. Let us hear from you.
There is an inclination on the part of a few of the politicians and
near politicians to incorporate the Kuhio-Frear controversy into Maui
politics. This is a big mistake. We have no interest in that fight, and
the less said about it the better. Let those whose business it is, settle
this squabbles, and may the best man win.
The March of Men.
(By' Charles Buxton Going.)
IF you could cast away the pain,
The sorrows and the tears
And let the joys alone remain
From all departed years,
If you could quite forget the sighs
And recollect the song
What think you? Would you be as wise,
As helpful or as strong?
If you could lay the burden down
That bows your head at whiles,
Shun everything that wears a frown
And live a life of smiles
Be happy as a child again,
As free from thoughts of care
Would you appear to other men
More noble or more fair?
Ah, no! A man should do his part
And carry all his load,
Rejoiced to share with every heart
The roughness of the road,
Not given to thinking overmuch
Of pains and griefs behind,
But glad to be in fullest touch
With all his humankind.

He immediately rose to the surface

by the press to be exceedingly good.

The Makena Maru, the new boat
built in Honolulu for the Raymond
Ranch people, left Honolulu Wed
nesday morning, for this island, and
since that time, to the present,
nothing litis leen heard from her.
The owners, however, do not feel at
all alarmed at this, as the boat was
new, the machinery not tried out
and the captain was given instruc

IK-ssible something has happened to
the machinery, and that the boat

John M. Thomas, president of Mld
dlebury college, says that a year or
two ago a certain town employed a
trained superintendent, a college man
who knew what a school ought to be,
to exercise supervision over all the
schools of that town. It was the first
time some of those schools had ever
been visited In an official capacity by a
salaried administrative officer. In one
school a little toddler was found study
