Take a look at the map of Eu
rope and note the nearness of Gi- J
braltar to a part of the Moroccan
coast line, and it is easy to discern
I that Gibraltar is not the whole Key
J to the Mediterranean. It has been
recognised for in any years by
statesmen , by naval leaders, by stu
dents of "affairs" that a strong
naval power with fortress and har-
j bor on the Moorish coast might
some day successfully dispute con
trol of the Straits by Great Britain,
and if ever that day should come
the integrity of the British Empire

That is the reason, and the only
reason, for the present strained re
lations between Germany and
Great Britain. For Germany has
dispatched one of her Cruisers
to the Port of Agadir, for what
sufficient reason is best known t o
herself. But to Great Britain it
could not and will not appear other
than a direct menace to her securi
ty and peace, and unless the Wil
helmatrasse gives undeniably satis
factory explanations, trouble will
surely ensue and at short date.
For Germany is by far too power
ful, and too well prepared for war
to allow of any other nation treat
ing with her on the principle of
"laissez faire." Such a course of
action would be fatal.
(treat Britain has taken a stand
from which she will not budge one
hair's breath; nor would she if she'
could were Germany doubly strong.
She dare not. She must, and she
would, fight till the last hope was
gone, to the last gasp. And her
rallying cry well might be that
motto painted on the "Companion"
of every war vessel of the United
States, the dying words of the
gallant hearted Lawrence, Captain
of the "Chesapeake" "Dont give
up the ship!"' And if a n y fair
minded and holiest hearted" German
feels inclination to resent the above
expressions let him be assured that
there is not the least intent what
ever to wound his spirit of national
pride, let him not feel offence when
none is intended. But rather let
him quietly reason with himself in
this wise, if Germany held Gibraltar
and a British cruiser lay off Agadir,
what would my country do, and
how would I feel? He will surely
find the key to Great Britain's
action, and my remarks, in the
rising feelings of his own breast.
But as between France and
Germany, and Germany and Spain,
the national equation is a far
different one. For both France
and Spain have committed breach
of the Algeciras Act, to which they
with Germany and Great Britain
were Signatories, France by her
occupation of Fez, and Spain by
similar act at Algeciras.
The occupation by France of Fez
was altogether unnecessary, let her
ministers asseverate as they may.
It was a kind of political bluff.
As narrated by the Press, events
have proved that there was little
disorder in Fez; that the tribes had
retired before the French troops
arrived, and the much circulated
story of Europeans in danger,

The question of a "County Car
penter," suggested in our last issue
has met with much approval among j
the business element, and consider-1
ing that our County Engineer is1
entitled to a little assistance, there
is some possibility of the matter re

Nearly one hundred children
without a school house is a condi
tion of affairs which reflects any
thing but credit upon a bunch of
Supervisors responsible for such.
According to authentic records, the
Department of Public Instruction
notified the Supervisors of the va
rious counties in plenty of time to
allow for the construction of addi
tional school buildings, and the
Watertown incident where some
eighty odd children are without a
school, is conclusive evidence of
the inability of the members of the
Board of Supervisors of Honolulu
to realize the importance of exercis
ing a little common -sense. For
absolute luck of knowledge of how
to conduct the countie's affairs, the
Oahu Supervisors certainly take the

its existence. From the farthest

secured such a hold on humanity ;
that the entire civilized world stands

Our local health officials are ac

conditions, but they cannot fight
the fatal disease without the aid of
the people. We must lend our aid
