KU1IIO SHOULD I'.K ELICCTKD.
lU forc the primaries, Charles A. Rice pledged himself to work for
the election of Ktihio. should the latter win the Republican nomination.
As soon as the results were reasonably certain last Saturday night, Mr.
Rice again openly declared his intention of giving the Prince- his best
support in the coming election. This is the proper spirit, and moreover
undoubtedly reflects the opinion of the rank and file of the Rice ad
herents throughout the Territory. Kuhio has been nominated by the
Republican party. He should receive the united support o that party
in the November elections.
The M.M'i Xkws supported Rice in the primary campaign, because
it believed that the best interests of the Territory would be furthered
by his election. It has not changed its views in this respect. Hut now
that Rice is eliminated, there is no question in the matter. The Maim
Nkws w ill support Kuhio's candidacy as it would have backed Rice had
he been the party's choice.

PASSING THE BUCK.
Like the small boys who destroyed a barn as a result of their quar
rel for the possession of a box of matches, every nation in Europe will
soon be vigorously side-stepping responsibility for precipitating the
most terrible conflagration of modern times. Great Britain is already
'making a strong plea for favorable public opinion, through the publi
cation of a mass of diplomatic correspondence bearing on the events
immediately preceding the war, and designed to show that she exerted
herself to preserve peace and failed. That such a conflict was pos
sible, is a reflection on civilization; yet if it has as its results the break
ing of the bonds of mediaeval superstition, wheh hold the masses of
Europe subservient to the dictates of a few, through the accident of
birth, the price may not be excessive. AYar is spectacular and terrible.
The misery of the millions who grovel is a familiar condition, but none
the less terrible.

KEEPING IN THE FORE.
This issue of the Maui News, the management believes, marks
an important point in the paper's progress. An Intertype composing
machine was added to the equipment of the plant this week the latest
model of the machine that has revolutionized the printing business.
The installation of this most wonderful of machines, has caused some
temporary confusion in the office, which accounts for the possibly some
what disheveled appearance of this number of the paper. But this will
be soon remedied, and our increased facilities will enable us to furnish
our subscribers with a better paper than has ever heretofore been pos
sible. a a a a a
THE NEW PRIMARY LAW.
The first test of the new primary law has shown it to be workable.
In fact some surprise has been heard from all over the Territory at the
celerity with which the big ballots were handled by the voters. The
chief objection seems to be that the system makes it easy for a party
with no contest in its own ranks, to weaken parties which have, by
throwing their w eight towards the nomination of the weakest candidates
in their opponent's list. In many states where prmary laws are in force
a voter must specify what party he desires to support, and he is given
no opportunity to interfere in the making of the ticket of any other.
