"HIT HER UP!"
NCK again has an auto driver killed a child. The latest affair
was in Honolulu and, according to some evidence at the inquest,
it is stated that the engine was running ' wide open" along a
thoroughfare in Honolulu city. That, if true, is enough to condemn
the man who was driving the car. No man should take such chances
with an auto along a city street. Children are to be seen everywhere
and one can never tell what a child will do next. One moment it may
be making for the sidewalk and be well out of danger- The next in
stant the little one may swing around, without the slightest indication
being given that a turn is to be made, and run directly in front of a
car. Children and chickens are very much the same when it comes to
crossing a road. The safest plan is to slow up when children are around.
SUGAR AND MULES.
AMONG those who have testified in the lobbying investigation is
a setiator from Missouri, who told how he had received telegrams
from his constituents asking him to vote for a duty on sugar, be
cause Protection for sugar was necessary to preserve the mule industry
of Missouri. The senator's state is a great sotlrce of supply of mules
and mules are essential in the sugar-growing business. So, there you
are the inter-relation of American interests is demonstrated beyond
necessity for further proof. And yet the sugar-planters of Louisiana
and the mule-growers of Missiouri persist in sending to Congress De
mocrats who are "deadset" against Protection.
TARIFF TINKERS. ,
BY all means give us free sugar, you dear, delightful Democratic
Tariff tinkers! Make it free just as free as coffee to reduce
our cost of living! Then when you have crushed out the sugar
hamlets and made barren again the plantations ot the South, the Mid
dle States and Hawaii for the benefit of foreign producers, maybe
some kind government across the water may see fit to put on a small
export duty to make our sweets of proportionate costs to our duty free
coffee! What difference to a Tariff tinker is a little additional cost of
a commodity so long as the iniquitous Tariff is removed.
TIIU American workingman does not ask favors from anyone,
but he has right of Protection against underpaid competition.
Compare his present condition with anyone in th.' labor world
anywhere and at any time. Everything is in his favor and this is the
result of long studies, long practiced . experience) based upon sound
principle. The Democratic party haalways spelled ruin for labor in
this country, and before the next four years is past the present regime
will prove no exception.
The refusal of Great Britain, Germany and Russia to take part in
the Panama Exposition in 1915, is a serious blow to what is planned
to be the greatest exhibition of years. It is to be hoped that some
change will be made by the three great countries, and that they will
fall in line with the rest of the world.
The development of the beet sugar business, under , Protection, has
done much to keep the prices of sugar down. If the Tariff is removed,
will the beet sugar companies continue to prosper? If they do not,
will the importers continue to be charitable, or will they charge what
the traffic will bear?
The lobby talk at Washington and in the newspapers has reached
the ludicrous stage. The idea that every man who talks to a congress
man on public affairs is a villain, or that the average congressman is
listed in the ' for sale" column is rot.
Maui will have an opportunity next Saturday to once more prove to
the whole group that the Valley Island is the most hospitable of places.
July Fourth and August 16 are two red-letter days on Maui.
The Wilson-Underwood bill naturally will raise hades with the
country. Usually Democratic pet schemes have in the past, and there
is no reason to believe they will not in the future.
And when they get this free sugar over and the Suerar Trust imoorts
its sugar free of charge, will they make good their promises for
cheaper sugar? We hope so, but fear not-
When one reads of the deaths from heat in the eastern and middle
states, it makes the citizens of Hawaii thank their stars that these
''tropical islands" are so cool and healthy.
Property owners and residents
presented a largely signed peition
to the Supervisors this week, ask
ing that certain roads in the south
ern part of the city be improved
and that Vineyard street be con
tinued east from Market street.
While there is not much hope at
this time that the Vineyard street
extension can be made, yet there
seems to be no reason why the
petition in so far as the other
iniprvoements are concerned,
should not be granted.
"There is a large area -of most
desirable residence property in the
eastern part of the city which
would be available for homes, if ac
cess to it were made easy," said
one of the promoters of the peti-,
tion, to the Nkws representative
"The territory lying east of Mar
ket street between Main and Mill
streets, is building up very rapidly.
During the past six months eleven
cottages have been erected and all
are occupied. The only means of
reaching these homes is by way of
the road opposite the depot. This
road is as nature left it. There has
never been the slightest improve
ment made. All that would be re
quired to put this road in good
shape is a very small expenditure
of money for fixing the approaches
at the Main and Mill streets ends
of it, and the cleaning up of the
rubbish that has accumulated there
in times past.
"We realize that the extension
of Vineyard street would entail a
heavy expense, yet this portion of
the'eity is destined to become the
choice residence section of Wai
luku, and some time this extension
must be made and the cost will
never be less than at this time.
"If the Supervisors cannot see
their way clear to do this work
now, well and good, but we cer
tainly do expect that they will ap
propriate the few hundred .dollars
necessary for the improvement of
the riad leading through Wells
On Wednesday night last at the
Pioneer Theater, Lahaina, there
was a boxing contest that attracted
a' large crowd of fight fans to the
comfortable show house. The thea
ter was pretty well filled and the
lovers of the noble art' were
all on pins and needles regarding
the go that was to be pulled off
between "Kahuku," a local man,
and "Young Jack Johnson," of
Honolulu. The latter was a slight
favorite in the betting, as it was
thought that his knowledge of the
game would enable him to get a
decision over his opponent. How
ever, the young man with the
formidable name was not good
enough to win from the Lahaina
pug, who flattened Mistah Johnson
out in the eighth round.
The fight was of the rough and
ready type and, while Johnson show
ed signsof knowingsotnethiug about
boxing, the other man, with his
strong rushes and heavy swings,
proved too good for the imported
The fight was carried to Johnson
by Kahuku", and he landed some
good wallops on the Honolulu ladi
Kahuku" was handicapped by a
broken thumb, from the third
round on, but he delivered the
goods all the same. The punch
that floored Johnson in the leighth
round was a wallop on the side of
the neck. Johnson went down
and made no attempt to get to his
feet again. The victory of the
local man was a very popular one
and the crowd cheered itself hoarse.
It is good to hear that the tourist travel to Haleakala is picking up,
and that the prospects in that line are brighter than they were -some
It is not about time that the supervisors clearly defined, in a legal
way, the town and country limits, as regards automobile rates of speed.
That a few hundred quail will
soon be liberated on Maui, is the
idea of the Maui supervisors. The
matter has been taken up by the
board and E. H. Paris, of Hono
lulu, is the man who is attending
to the purchase of the birds. A
letter from Paris explains the
whole matter, and he makes the
statement that quail can be obtain
ed in one hundred dozen lots, at a
cost of $3.50 per dozen.
The quail are trapped in Mexico
on the ranch of a man who also has
shooting and trapping rights over
a large tract of country. The best
season for trapping is now coming
on as the birds will soon be mating
If the board of supervisors au
thorizes Mr. Paris to go ahead and
order the birds, it will not be many
weeks till a shipment is underway
to Maui. A Mexican, who is ac
customed to taking care of quail,
will make the trip down to Maui.
The loss of birds on shipboard will
therefore, be less than if the feath
ered ones came along in charge of
the ordinary ship men. There are
quail in the Kula district at pres
ent, but none in the Hana, Wai
luku or Lahaina districts.
As we understand it, a lobbyist is not a lobbyist if he is working for
legislation which the administration wants enacted.
Huerta will probably get what is coining to him and then the fol
lowers of the late Medero will feel better satisfied.
Tariff revision is reported to be moving rapidly. It is otherwise
with the promised reduction in the cost of living.
