WHAT IS RAW MATERIAL?
THIi Tarid experts make long disquisitions on the difference be
tween manufactured articles and raw material. What is raw
material? It is .something in the production of which human
labor has not been used. The steel of which the saw is made is not
raw material, for it is made from iron smelted by human labor from
ore. The ore is not raw material for human labor has been invoked to
mine it. The leather of which your shoes are made is not raw mate
rial, for the tanner made it from a hide. The hide is not raw material,
for labor killed and skinned the steer. And the steer was not raw ma
terial for it took labor to raise and feed him.
Cloth is the so-called raw material from which the tailor manufac
turers a coat. Wool is the so-called raw material from which the spin
ner constructs the cloth, and human labor has been used to shear the
sheep, liven the tree standing in the forest is not the raw material of
lumber, for human labor was required to survey a road through the
' forest to reach the tree. Los Angeles Times.
It is now more than one year since President Wilson took the oath of
office, and still the good old republican territorial officers of Hawaii are

decent Democratic timber is lacking in Hawaii. Not that some
decent democrats cannot be found here, but they arc few and far between.
It's up to the Democratic party to make good now. Iiverylhing the
farmer has to sell brings less money than for years past, while every
thing he buys costs as much as ever. He wants to know the whyness
of this whichness, not for the purpose of satisfying his political curios
ity but for very vital business reasons. Joliet (Mont.) Journal.
It is something new for the Territory of Hawaii to have a malihiui
office holder dictate as to appointments and other matters of import
ance. It ,is also strange to hear of a peddler like "Mailbox" Barron
telling of how the Governor of Hawaii consulted him regarding the
nomination of the territorial secretary.
The Hawaii Promotion Committee deserves the support of the whole
of Hawaii. The tourist crop is one that most people" will have to de
pend upon a little later on, when the policy of the man who declared
he would never "injure a legitimate industry," begins to show its
Through the death of Captain Penhallow, Maui lost a citizen who
can hi ill spared. The deceased gentleman was a straight, clean noble
minded man, and he was beloved by all with whom he came in contact.
All Maui joins in sympathy with the bereaved widow and family.
The sooner the question of Circuit Court judgeships is settled, the
b.'tter it will be for all concerned. The uncertainty is worring lawyers,
the public and the judges themselves. Perhaps it is all up to "Old
Rose" and, in that case, only democrats will get a chance.
The amount of prize money suggested by the executive committee of
the Maui Kacjng Association is quite enough, considering the times,
and it is to be hoped that the members of the association back up the
ommittee this evening at the general meeting.
liverybody should buy tickets for the big Race Club ball. The affair
is for the purpose of raising funds to tide the racing association over a
bid time. The ball will be well worth the admission money and the
people who attend it will have a good time.
The Ad. Club excursion to Kauai was evidently a great affair and
the get-together spirit seems to have been abroad. Maui should be the
next calling place of the Honolulu live wire organization.
Already a tentative slate for the next board of supervisors is being
made up. Good men are available, but it remains to be seen if the
voters will elect them to office.
With the men of Ulster sworn to fight with arms against the estab
lishment of an Irish Parliament, it would appear that England is up
against a tough proposition.
Mexico does not seem to be so much in the limelight just now, and
Secretary Bryan must feel glad, as he can now devote more time to
lecturing at a dollar a ticket.
It is to be hoped that the dredging of Kahultti harbor will go on in
safety, and that the accidents of last year will not be repeated.
Baseball will soon be with us again and the Maui Athletic Associa
