OCTOBER 4. 1913
ALTHOUGH there have been many kicks about the delay in de
livering Wailuku mail that reaches Maui per the Matson and
American-Hawaiian steamers, one important fact has beeij over
looked. The new train schedule instituted some time ago for the gen
eral benefit of Wailuku and Haiku people, makes it very difficult to
handle mail arriving on the big boats, so that it can catch the early
morning train from Kaluilui.
The Matson and American-Hawaiian boats may, possibly, be seen en
tering Kahului harbor at about six o'clock in the morning but, by the
time the ship is safely moored with the aid of the tug, it is much later.
The train leaves at 6:25 a. m. for Wailuku and it is impossible to make
the connection. To run a special train for a few bags of mail would
be absurd, so the mail is shipped from the Kahului post office on the
train that reaches Wailuku at 8:50 a. m.
However, no one is blaming the railroad company, and now that the
situation is understood properly, there will be no kicks on that score.
However, the thought that important mail sometimes remains for two
hours or so at Kahului instead of being sent to Wailuku at once, is not
a cheerful one, and the suggestion is made that an auto or auto-truck
bring the mail up from the big boats as soon as it is received at the
Kahului post office. The people of Wailuku should not have to wait
two hours for mail when the two post offices are only three miles apart.
Surely the superintendent of mails can devise some scheme whereby
the mail be brought to Wailuku by auto-truck.
WELCOME FREE MEAT.
PATRICK CUDAHY, one of the beef kings of the United States,
says he "welcomes the free importation of beef from South
This is no more than other packers have said, as they have likewise
declared that meat will never be any cheaper. Of course, the packers
who are supposed to constitute the "Beef Trust" have their packeries
in Argentina, as well as their refrigerator ships, and they will sell such
Argentina beef as comes to this country just as they sell the American
The idea of putting meat on the free list of the present Tariff bill was
born of a desire to curb the Beef Trust, and yet the Beef Trust boldly
proclaims its ability to control the situation, and if that is to be the re
sult the people's hopes for cheaper meat will fade into nothingness.
But what is to be the result to the American cattle grower?
Up to the present time the packers have been compelled to pay fair
prices for American cattle because under present conditions they can
not import from Argentina advantageously. With the tremendous
supply of Argentina available, their packing houses and refrigerator
ships, it looks to us as if free meat is merely going to give the packers
an opportunity to play the cheaply produced cattle of Argentina against
the dearer cattle of the United States and compel the American cattle
raiser to sell upon the basis of Argentina prices.
KEEP IT UP.
NOW that the late civic convention is a week or more old, and the
various delegates are back to the same old grind of daily toil, it
is as well to remind those men who went down to Honolulu
that the same spirit must be maintained for the rest of the year. Maui
has to make good at the next convention and this island cannot afford
to let any opportunity to preach the gospel of "get together" slip.
The next civic convention is to be held on Maui, and that is all there
is to it. We have to prepare well ahead of time and we have to keep in
mind the fact that it is a big contract that we have ahead of us. The
turn out of Hilo and Honolulu men was so great and so representative
last week that we cannot doubt that the third convention here on Maui
will be larger by far than the first and second, held in Hilo and Hono
lulu respectively. That there is an immense amount of work to be
done, we all know, but we also know that Maui is noted for doing any
thing she attempts in first class style.
It is up to every individual on this beautiful island to get together and
work up schemes that may be submitted to big meetings later on when
plans are being discussed. ,

DICTATED BY A SCHOOLMASTER.
W N refusing to ado the provision for a countervailing duty the Senate
Free-Traders give notice to all the world that the United States
market is to be given away without any return whatsoever. For
example, Canada may ship all her natural products across the borber
without paying a penny of Tariff duties, and yet may continue to im
pose restrictions upon the export of print paper, pulp wood and pulp,
and may maintain her own Tariff against the importation of farm pro
ducts, timber products and paper. Every country in the world is at
liberty to practice Tariff discriminations that handicap our exports
There is no penalty. Every country may dump its surplus production
on the American market without let or hindrance, while levying Tariff
duties on the American surplus. Such are the beauties of Free-Trade
legislation dictated by a schoolmaster.

Colonel T. Donnelly Bennett of El
berton, Ga., by some special dispensa
tion of Georgia law was a lawyer and
practicing when he was seventeen.
His first case was as assistant to the
district attorney In the prosecution of
a man accused of murder.
The defendant hud for his lawyer an
elderly and. dignified member of the
bar, who wore a long, flowing, volu
minous beard. The bearded lawyer
resented the interference of the youth
ful Bennett and constantly referred to
him as "this beardless youth from
Bennett took It all In good part until
the other lawyer began to rub it in.
Then he arose and suid:
"May it please your honor, during my
somewhat brief experience at the bar
1 have had the pleasure of rending aft
er such distinguished law writers as
Blackstone, Coke and Littleton, and If
I rightfully interpret them It takes
brains and not beard to make a lawyer.
"However, if these distinguished law
writers be mistaken and the gentleman
who appears for the defense Is correct,
I take great pleasure in here and now
nominating him for chief Justice of the
supreme court of the United States, as
he has so much beard and so little
brains that he is eminently qualified to
fill that high position." Saturday

KIAH MAXASE, late of Wailuku, Maui,
IT IS A BLUNDER.
T II IC average citizen looks upon the Tariff schedules as more or
less of a problem. The terms are strange and the details con
fusing, but when it comes to bananas and the increase in cost on
account of a duty all can see and understand. The fact that the Gov
ernment has added two million dollars to the banana bill will serve to
cover several times that sum by the time the increase reaches the con
sumer. There is no disguise, no diffusion of the tax. It is a specific
tax on a single article. It is a blunder, but the people will have to foot
the bill just the same.
