KCRKTARY FISHER created a very good impression when he
visited Maui last week. He was so keen in his observations,
and so clear in his statements that all those people who came in
contact with him, at once remarked. "There is a man who cannot be
The Secretary was warmly welcomed to Maui by all hands and every
body realized, a minute after meeting the man, that the interests of Ha
waii, as regards homesteading and other problems, are safe in the hands
of the Secretary of the Interior.
Mr. Fisher is of the clean cut type of man, that one always associates
in one's mind, as of the Statesman class. In appearance, the Secretary
is somewhat like the famous "Joe" Chamberlain, of England. In his
utterances he is right to the point, and he does not waste time listening
to men who have some political row to hoe.
Hawaii c-.inot but benefit from the visit of the Secretary, and every
body is glad of that.
HAWAII has received some wonderful advertising through the
swimming ability of Duke Kahauamoku, and the reception given
the famous Hawaiian, upon his return to Honolulu, was well
deserved in every way.
That these islands should produce so many fine athletes is wonder
fnl. The old fogies who declare that the tropics and semi tropics are
enervating and that strong men cannot be raised there, should look
over the list of Hawaiian bred youths who have made good at mainland
schools and universities. The list is a long one and nearly every branch
of sport is represented. The next lot to astonish the mainlanders will
be the All-Hawaii polo team. Next Foruary our men will battle it
out against the best players in the United States. And Maui No Ka
Oi will be one of the war cries as F. F. Baldwin will be on the Paradise
of the Pacific team.
FAUGH A BALLAH.
rO the ordinary man on the street it would appear absurd that
Irishmen are ready to fly at one another's throats and, actually,
shed blond, to avoid Home Rule. But according to cable ad
vices, that is the state of affairs in the "Black North" at present. The
Irishmen of the North are said to be ready for civil war but, it must be
remembered that England will have a say in that matter.
Rut outside of that chase of the trouble, it does seem ridiculous to
sons of Irishmen, settled in Hawaii and on the mainland, to hear of
their countrymen hating one another so bitterly. It is strange how
the old people, in their little home land, allow petty differences and
religious controversies to make them the joke of the world. Home
Rule for Ireland appears hopeless and when a portion of the race is
ready to take up arms in order to prevent the trial being made, there is
nothing much more to be said.
ELECTION day is getting close now and early next month, we
will be in the throes of the campaign. That the fight is going
to be a strenuous one, there is no doubt. Al the strength of
the Republican party will have to be exerted in order to defeat the
Democrats, and it behooves all good Republicans to get to the polls on
the creat dav of contest.

It is a pity that Secretary of State Knox did not find time to pay a
flying visit to Hawaii and Maui. Knox could have gained a lot of in
side information on the trip, and the islands would then have two
, Cabinet Officers as close friends.
We wonder if Kuhio's secretary, Jack Desha, will get a salary from
the Chamber of Commerce, Merchants' Association and the Promotion
Committee, in addition to his pay as Cupid's stenographer.

Fisher Heard Fine Address
(Coiiti-ued ironi Page I)
You come to us in company with
theTerritorial.Uovernor and our De
legate to Congress, who need no in
troduction and who know the feel
ing of our hearts too well to need
words of welcome. Indeed, we are
theirs and they are ours. We gladly
greet and welcome our Territorial
Executive and we greet and wel
come our Territorial Representative
We are pleased to see that they
are attended and protected by
their respective attorneys, eminent
counsel whom we all know and de
light to honor.
Mr. Secretary, it in certain that
in a sense we belong to Governor
Walter F. Frear, and also, in
sense, to our Delegate in Congress
Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole and
we are glad. But we may also re
joice that this people, our lands,
our harbors, and all our interests
and our posibilities belong to you
and are in your especial power and
caro. For us and our good you
over-lord them all and have taken
actual and rightful possession of
that to which you have the title
D e Jure. You have us, so now
we pray you take care of us.
We are restive and combative
people, but our bark is worse than
our bite. Of course, we fight a
little but we are careful not to hurt
one another very much. Our fight
ing is like what is here called
"Lomi-lomi-ing, ' '-rather than what
the vulg:ir call " swatting. "
Lotm-lomi-ing makes us stronger
and is better than running away
for making us able to fight on an
other day. All the world admires
a fighter and all the world should.
Fighting has secured us our every
great good. Some kind of contest
or controversy or contention or war
some sort of fighting has secured
to us the rights that enable us to
Peace is a state which war may
I once urged the Rev. Dr. Dore-
mus Scudder to preach a sermon
on the Blessings of War and the
Horrors of Peace." He declined.
But now when he sees the blessing
of this contest, he may do so. He
probably will if he conies to appre
ciate the good we will receive on
account of this war. War is a Na
tional need, an international neces
sity, a municipal fate.
In our Court-rooms are contro
versies and contests out of which
has come nearly every governmental
precept. In the world of traffic,
competition brings justice. In the
Church fighting has done more than
has praying to establish love of truth
and toleration of another's subjec
tively loved-truth: Fishes, birds,
animals, men, and, according to
Milton, the Angels fight. Indeed,
go up and down ad infinitum it
is combat. Our Doctors declare we
live because the microbes are carry
ing on a most destructive battle with
each other within our bodies. It is
useless for our worshippers of The
Hague to cry: ' 'Peace 1 Peace I" for
universal "war has actually begun
and every gale that sweeps from"
Oahu brings to our ears the
clash of resounding tongues. Our
greatest warrior said: "Let us have
peace:" but he did not say this
until he had finished his fight
Friction is necessary. Without it
no advance. Make an automobile
so perfect that its wheels will be
absolutely round and even and
smooth, ana place it on a road so
good that it is level and perfectly
smooth its engines might work but
the automobile would not move. A
world composed of men so ideally
perfect that there could be no con
test, no contention, no war, no
friction, would never move: would
A short time ago we were deplor
ing the fact that our two foremost
officers were said to be trying to
scratch each other's eyes out."
But we are already beginning to see
the almost inestimable benefits of
their pseudo contest.
It has brought to our shores the
Officer who has most power for good
for this Territory. It has caused
him to look into our wants, our
needs, resources, our posibilities,
and to weign in the scales I im
partial justice the charges and
counter-charges of the combatants;
and above all it enables each oi us
to better understand the other, and
you, Mr. .isner, to better under
stand us and our environments.
Perhaps we ought to thank these
gentlemen for carrying on the war
until they succeeded in bringing the
great Secretary to our shores. We
assure them if this was their object
the end justifies the means.
1 he becretary oi the Interior is
now able to return to Washington
with a fuller knowledge of what wil
be best for os; and this knowledgi
is in the mind of the best officer
possible, because the duty 'and th
power to do for us what universal
benevolence dictates are in his hands.
We nave watched the hearings of
inquiry he has held and are delight
ed that the points of personal con
flict seem largely to have been lost
sight of in the great mass of vital
and weighty matters pertaining to
the things to be corrected, the
wrongs to be righted, the matters
to be avoided, and, the work that
is needed, for the people of Hawaii.
While we are appreciating, and
properly, the great good this con
test has done us by bringing our
over-lord to us, let us also urge him
not to wait for another municipal
misunderstanding before lie again
visits us. We hope he will not
think such a condition of things a
necessary prerequisite hereafter, but
will come not so much for a love of

justice as for love of us.
Mr. Secretary, oome often and
stay longer and bless us by your
notice even in our slothfal days
the piping periods of peace.
Mr. Fisher, the Committee who
represent this people asked mo not
only to introduce you, but to make
a few pertinent remarks. To us it
seems that the most pertinent things
we can say is to express our hearty
welcome to you, to thank you for
the visit to us, and to state that we
are grateful not only with the
Gratitude which is a lively ex
pectation of benefits to come" but
are also filled with a present grati
tude for your gracious presence.

nowin your hands for further pro
