REVISE THE FIRE-ARM LAW, MR. LEGISLATOR
An innocent baby was killed last week by a bullet from a revolver
in the hands of an irresponsible field hand. The man didn't intend to
kill the child in fact didn't have any idea that his bullet had found
a living mark and will consequently not be punished for a serious
crime. But by what right did that Porto Rican have that gun? Was
his life in danger that he must be armed? Why was the Chinese shop
keeper permitted to sell the weapon to him? These are questions that
have no legitimate answer except that the community is not doing its
duty when fire-arms can be procured by anyone with the price to buy
them. The police department, in unraveling the Hamakuapoko case,
made the discovery that some twenty or thirty revojvcrs ,and a large
quantity of ammunition had been sold by Maui stores during the past
month ; and for most part to persons who have absolutely no legitimate
use for them.
If the coming legislature fails to take some adequate step in this
matter it will be seriously derelict. A police permit might be required ;
or at least a high license might be charged which would prevent small
shop-keepers all over the islands from dealing in small fire-arms. The
island of Hawaii has had a series of awful tragedies which could not
have happened but for fire-arms in improper hands. Maui has been
more fortunate but the pitiful case at Hamakuapoko is a warning of
what is likely to happen if this mania for arming is permitted to go
FILIPINOS AND CITIZENSHIP
Whether a Filipino may or may not become a naturalized citizen
under our constitution is a matter that only the supreme court of the
land may decide finally. In the meantime a federal judge in Honolulu
has decided that he may and a colleague on the same bench has decided
that he may not. Another judge in New York, it is reported, has also
held that Filipinos are not of Caucasian or of African blood and there
fore may not be naturalized. And when it is settled by the courts it
vvill not be finally settled on a basis of real justice. That can only be
done by amending the naturalization laws.
- ' This is not an argument for cheapening American citizenship. On
the contrary the naturalization laws might well be made much more
rigorous. Any period of probation, or any test that would prevent an
unworthy person becoming an American citizen, could scarcely be too
severe. But it isn't good sense to admit an unlettered barbarian' from
the wilds of Africa to the privileges of American citizenship, and refuse
a cultured native of some other part of the globe on account of the
particular strain of blood that happens to flow in his veins. Probably
but a small fraction of the total number of Filipinos who are now be
ing rushed forward to take out their first papers should ever be per
mitted to qualify, but for a much better reason than in the color of their
WHY NOT HAY?
Mainland farmers are able to make money growing hay at $8 to
$10- per ton. Some of them have been doing it year in and year out on
land worth from$100 to $200 per acre. At the present time wheat and
alfalfa hays in Hawaii cost over $30 per ton, and have probably
never sold for less than $20. Hay is brought into the Islands in large
quantities and probably always will be. The army uses an immense
amount of it. If Hawaii farmers can grow it there is no doubt that
they can sell it. In fact it should be a mighty good money crop.
It must be remembered that the mainland farmer can make use
of his land but a part of each year. Here grass will grow every month
in the year, and alfalfa, where it is grown, is cut once a month or
oftener. This should be a big first hand advantage over the mainland
farmer. Moreover the past four years has demonstrated here on
Maui that we can raise a variety of excellent forage crops suited to
hay making, and we are finding more all the time. There is no longer
any question about growing things.
But the problem of making hay in a land subject to frequent heavy
showers is something that has not been solved, though it is not im
possible of solution. Thanks to the trade winds it has been found that
grass will cure perfectly and quickly if it can be kept from the rain
and the air given free access to it. The thing that is called for now
?s some experiments on a field scale, and this few individuals are in posi
tion to make. The extension division of the federal experiment station
has demonstrated on a small scale, but the government refuses to supply
equipment needed for a real demonstration. The matter should not
be allowed to drop, however, for it should be of prime importance to
the whole territory and to Maui in particular.
Thanks to our peculiar geographical position these islands have a
way of profiting when the rest of the country is struggling with some
adverse condition. And this bids fair to always be the case in greater
or less degree. The possibility that the present session of the Congress
will help meet the extraordinary expenses of the government and prevent
further deficit by restoring the duty, on sugar is entirely logical, but
is no less comforting to Hawaii on that account. Moreover if a duty
on coffee is imposed, as now stems very probable, it will probably bring
the Islands to the fore as a real coffee producing center. .Everybody
knows that we can grow coffee, and good coffee, too, but with our high
priced labor the profits under normal conditions have been too near the
vanishing point to make it a popular industry.

The executive committee of the Maui County Fair has been busy
civs week passing votes of thanks to about everybody who had anything
lo do with the big show. We move a vote of thanks from everybody
in Maui to President Wadsworth, Director Cameron, and other members
of the executive committee, for the trifling part they played in the
- Dr. Norgaard's report on the live stock exhibit at the Maui County
Vair, as published in full in aother column, should do more than swell
our chests or our heads. There are a lot of suggestions in the Doctor's
paper winch will bear a lot of study.

Five murderers who nhtvild have
been banged long ago, but who were
allowed to plead to murder in the
second degree and who were sentenc
ed to imprisonment for life, have had
their sentences commutted to terms
of twenty and twenty-five years im
prisonment by the governor. Next
Christmas the chief executive . will
probably still further reduce the
sentences and then, in 1918, will
probably allow a couple of the slayers
to be parolled. Life that of the in
nocent victims is cheap in Hawaii
and all the sympathy appears to be on
the side of the slayers. Hawaii Herald.
It would seem to be the very height
of absurdity for a nation depending
upon its marine business as does
Great Britain, to endeavor to put into
effect a ruling that her bunker-coal
privileges shall be extended only to
vessels of her own allies and herself.

A LITTLE RAINY AT HILO
During the past month Hilo and the
greater part of the Hamakua coast
averaged almost an inch of rain per
day. According to the reports of the
weather bureau, that section was by
far the wettest in the Territory.
In 1904, out of the total road and
bridge expenditures, $20,000,000 of
the $80,000,000 was paid In labor
