CIVILIAN RIFLE CORPS.
THE news that civilians will be able to go in for rifle shooting and
use the range of the National Guards, is good to hear. The form
ation of civilian rifle companies will, naturally, follow, and com
petitions that will keep up the interest in shooting at the butts will
soon be started. The N. G. H. Company "I," in Wailuku, will have
a fine new range before long, if all goes well. The old range was
dangerous and it is thought that by constructing new butts in
Kalua Valley, interest will be revived in target1 shooting and that
civilians will also go in for the sport. Civilians can get rifles at factory
cost and ammunition is also furnished at cost price. There is no doubt
that many who do not care to join the N. G. H. will join the rifle club
In other countries the civilian rifle corps are a big feature and the an
nual big shoots draw competitors from all parts. The clubs are a good
idea, and nearly every able-bodied man learns how to handle a rifle
That, in itself, is a splendid thing, and counts for much when the un

WHILE we all know there is ' uncertainty regarding the
future" in business lines and commercial affairs, there is one

next election. So buckle on your armor, boys. Throw away all petty
differences and minor misunderstandings, rally 'round the flag and let

men of the past select from the common people another man of the Lin

The selection of E. C. Peters as head of the Oahu Baseball League is
a good one. Mr. Peters will stand for no nonsense and, in future,
there will be clean, decent baseball. In the past there has been a lack
of backbone on the part of the management of the league, and the con
sequence has been that "rough house" stunts have been pulled off from
time to time.
The three Maui men who achieved such excellent results in the
examination lately held by the Inspector-Instructor of the N. G. H
are to be complimented on their showing.
Maui money will flow in Honolulu during the next week or so. It
is to be hoped that some of the tourists who are attracted to Honolulu
will find time to pay Maui a visit.
