THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1917.
The substance of the .famous Lux
burg despatches to the German
foreign office regarding conditions in
South America has already been
published and, at the time, set things
boiling in Argentina and Braz'l. These
cablegrams were intercepted by the
United States. In view of the interest
taken in the extracts, the Slate De
partment has released the full des
patches for publication, as follows:
Advises Submarine Visit
"No. 63. July 7, 1917. Our attitude
toward Brazl has created the impres
sion here that our easy-going good
nature can be counted on. This is
dangerous in South America where
the people under "thin veneer are Indi.-
ans. A submarine squadron with full
powers to me might probably still
save, the situation. I request instruc
tions as to whether after a rupture of
relations legation is to start for home
or to remove to Paraguay or possibly
Ch le. The naval attache will doubt
less go to Santiago de Chile.
Wanted Chile's Friendship
"No. 89. August 4, 1917. I am con
vinced that we shall be able to carry
through our principal political aims in
South America, the maintenance of
open market In Argentina and the re
organization of south Brazil equally
well whether with or against Argen
tina. Please cultivate friendship with
Chile. The announcement of a visit
of a submarine squadron to salute the
President would even now exercise
decisive influence on the situation in
South America. Trospect excellent
for -.'.heat harvest in December.

MR. COAL E PREACHES
Rev. Willis B. Coale preached at
the Walluku Union Church last Sun
day evening a very strong sermon up
on the topic: "The Divine Silence."
The sermon was a most sympathetic
presentation of the fact that God
works in the world by s'lent forces,
and that some of the greatest possible
forces in our human lives are those
that are silent.
The speaker urged more time spent
by individuals in silent commun'on
with the great God of His world, and
the tremendous need of men to be in
sympathetic accord with Hun.
rally, contemporaneous with the his
tory of the national life of the United
States, and now, since annexation,
merged in that of the United States,
a union which, it is to be hoped, may
prove to be more and more of mutual
benefit both to Hawaii, and to the
United States. That annexation did
not, at first, meet with the heart and
unanimous approval of the Hawaiian
people Is not a matter .for astonish
ment. Small as the Hawaiian nation
was, it. was not without that pride of
nationality which is peculiar to na
tons, small as well as great in num
bers, and to yield its identity, and be
merged by annexation, even and not
by war, in the life of a nation as
friendly to it as was the United States,
meant a feeling akin to that which
is now felt by some of the small na
tions of Europe in the fear they hav
that in the near future they may be
swallowed up, and merged in other
nations, it not by war, then by "dip
lomacy." As events have transpired, it would
seem as though annexation were a
part of that providential "divinity
that shape's our ends, rough hew
them how we will", and, therefore,
whatever sacrifice it has meant to the
I Hawaiian people, it has been sacrifice
for the common good, for time is prov
ing that there is more of truth than
Action in the saying that "the Haw
aiian Islands are the key to the Paci
fic". In making personal referenco to
Queen Liliuokalani, the preacher said
t had been his privilege to meet ncr
on several occasons, the last time, at
a repetition given to her at the Bis
hop's residence, during the Convoca
tion of 1916, at which time she spoke
to him of her great regard and genu
uinc affection for Maui and its peo
ple. To meet the Queen was to be
impressed with the fact that she was,
indeed a. oueenly. gentle, woman,
who would have adorned the "royal
purple" had she been, privileged to
continue on the throne. She has lett
no successor, but we may hope and
pray that the best that was in her,
the ideals for which she lived, as the
ex-Queen of Hawai', the moral, and
social well being of all Hawaii, may,
nrreasinglv. be made instinct with
life by all the Hawaiian people, both
natives, and new-comers.

A VAIN SEARCH
A CHRISTIAN "IF"
"A Christian If." was the theme
from which the Rev. A. Craig Bow
dish spoke at the Makawao Union
Church last Sunday. He briefly
traced the spread of Christianity
eastward from Jerusaleum to the
Armenians and into India. From
there it was carried to Japan by the
great missionary Francis Xavier. A
hundred years later it was a great
crisis for Japan when the nat;on cast
out Christianity and stopped explor
ing the Pacific coast. At the same
lane she shut herself up and refused
to associate with other nations. As
a consequence Christianity came to
Hawaii thru Europe and the Pilgrim
Fathers instead of Asia with a differ
ence of emphasis from race and environment.
Although the police and others
have kept up the search for the body
of Charles Poepoe, of Makena, who
fell from a sampan oiT ICihei about a
week ago and was drowned, nothing
has resulted. On Tuesday a report
came to Wailuku that some clothes
had been found on the beach near
Kihei. The clothes were not those
of the drowned man.
