P? HE newspaper of the future will have to be written not by boy
reporters but by trained experts each a specialist in his line.
The Scientific American complains about the way the daily news
papers mangle scientific matter. They will hire at high cost experts
to write up baseball daily; they will also employ trained men to write
their dramatic and book reviews, etc., but when it comes to treating
scientific subjects they seem to think anything will do. Much of the
so-called "science" of the average newspaper is distorted almost be
yond recognition and the inaccuracies recorded prove plainly enough
that neither writers, editors, compositors or proof-readers know any
thing about the subject. Scientists indeed are so suspicious of all
"popular" presentations of scientific matter that they will seldom give
anything out for publication. The Journal of American Medicine,
speaking on this same theme, mourns the lack of medical knowledge
among newspaper men. It cites many examples of the most absurd
statements, from the medical point of view, in the newspapers. On
the other hand, if the newspapers had to present medical and other
scientific matters in technical language to suit specialists in each parti
cular subject, the public would never read the articles. The public
does not want to be troubled too much with the abstruse technical side
of such things; it has to content itself with generalities. Nevertheless
the day is coming when the standards of newspaper writing will be
very much raised, so that readers may feel sure that what they are
reading on any subject is at least fairly accurate. There are many
times too many newspapers and other periodicals now and they are
thrown together in such haste that the wonder is they are on the whole
Flour is to be on the free list, while wheat is to be taxed. Naturally,
the border state mills which desire to use Canadian wheat will move
over to Canada. Meat will be on the free list, while cattle are taxed.
Wool will be free and sugar will be free in three years. Our diminish
ing wool industry will diminish faster and our beet sugar factories will
go out of business.
What our citrus growers and other fruit growers will think after this
law gets fairly into operation we do not know, but we guess they will
think that they were consummate asses to leave the Republican party
and trail off after the googoo band wagon.
What the Senate will do with these and similar items remains to be
seen, but it looks, as to most of them, as if Democratic, as well as Re
publican Protectionists, would have to take their medicine. Democrats
from the Southern manufacturing states are horrified to find that they
are expected to stand pat on the Free-Trade doctrine, which they were
fools enough to put into their platform. San Francisco Chronicle.
They gave women votes in Australia fifteen years ago and the result
was that labor members of parliament were elected by the votes of
laborers' wives. That was good for Australia. In England, if the wo
men got votes, members of parliament would be elected who would,
in a short time, so cut down the appiopriations for battleships, etc,
that England would be up against it, good and hard. That is the real
reason for the opposition shown the proposed measure.
Raw wool is to go on the free list. Raw wool is the finished product
of the sheep raiser. If all finished products are to go on the free list,
wool should go too, but when the wool goes the sheep will follow, as
they did in 1893. There will be one profitable industry less for the
farmers of the United States-
Assaults upon the Tariff are beginning to bear fruit. Last year our
Monroe County fanners at this time sold their wool for 25 cents. Now
they are selling it for 13 cents. Proposed free wool is already
affecting the price.
The grim reaper has called on the printing fraternity once more, and
this time it is Walter Pomroy, of the Hawaiian Gazette Company,
who has answered the call. Aloha. Walter, we all miss you.
Over at Lahaina the new theater
that is being completed by the
Pioneer Holel Company, under the
supervision of Manager George
Freeland, is attracting much atten
tion. And well it might for, not
even in Honolulu, have they a bet

in every respect, and is a
credit to the ancient capital of the
The Pioneer Theater is a large
roomy building, and is well fitted
out for the purpose for which it is
intended. The slaye is 45 by 20 feet
jnid is large enough to put on the
most ambitious productions. The
scenery' is excellent and drops,
wings, interiors and garden scenes
The floor of the house is sloping
and is provided with features that
will allow of proper Japanese shows
being given as well as those of the
haole .variety. The gallery is a
a fine roomy one, and the operat
ing room is absolutely fire-proof.
The machine for projecting pic
tures is of the very latest type and
the focus is 56 feet.
To insure good ventilation, the
whole of the walls are open at the
top, where wire 's installed. There
are plenty of exits and, in fact,
the whole of one side of the house
can be thrown open in a second,
thus allowing the theater to be
emptied in two minutes.
Fine, comfortable chairs are
provided and they are very 'differ
ent to the ordinary moving picture
house seats. The whole place is
fitted out for electric lights and
will be in full swing on July
"LtFT-IIAINDED PLANTS '.
Habits of plants analogous to the
right-handedness and left-handed-ness
of man have been reported to
the Cambridge, England, Philoso
phical Society by R. H. Compton.
In an examination of eight varie
ties of two-rowed barley the first
leaf was found to twist to the left
in 58 per cent, of more than 12,000
seedlings, and an ( xcess of left"
handed growth was found also in
millet and in oats.
In corn there seemed to be no
marked tendency either way. No
evidence of hereditary peculiarity
appears to have been obtained and
no special significance of the results
is pointed out.

President Wilson insists on free wool and free sugar. The point is
to establish the Free-Trade principle, and against that the people have
given a majority in all of the last five presidential elections.
We wonder who the next newspaperman to be appointed by Wilson
will be. It is no good, Woodrow, the newspapers cannot help you
Why should Maui's grand reputation for good roads be injured by
short stretches of fierce thoroughfare?
If Roosevelt had been elected President would Mexico now be a part

SUNRISE IN HAWAII.
AT last 1 close my weary eyes.
And dream of it until sunrise '
And then I look into the East,
And see another scenic feast
Of silvery edge, and snowy white,
O'er green mountains fresh and bright
Defying painters and their art.
'Tis free for all come take your part,
Come, let us share these scenes with you
'Tis Old Hawaii, Earth's paradise,
Where men and women realize,
That art can ne'er portray,
The grandeur at the close of day. '
