It is also noticed that when

Roosevelt is going to take the
stump but if Taft gets the trees
T. R. can have the old stump.
Brazil is going to spend
$5,000,000 this year in advertising
her resources and advantages.
Here is a pointer for Kauai.
From general observation, the
County would do well do spend
some of that 6 per cent on pur
chasing new window glass for the
Now comes a learned Bishop
who says that St. Patrick was not
a Roman Catholic. Whatever he
was, he was a mighty good man,
An exchange says that a negro
called "Doodlebug" was recently
found dead. You couldn't much
blame him when you come to
think of his name.
Taft says that Roosevelt has a
barrel. Roosevelt says that Taft
is spending scads of lucre. Wil
son says that Clark has a big cam
paign fund while wilson is accused
of trying to buy Oklahoma.
An egg of the Auk, a giant bird
now extinct, was recently sold at
auction in London for $1500.
This strikes us as being a very
aukstravagant price. In fact it is
nearly as costly as an American
hen's egg in Hawaii.
When it comes to politics, the
political prophets in Honolulu are
at a loss in sizing up Kauai.
They've got to go some if they
put one over the Kauai material,
and the sooner they get next to
this fact the wiser they'll be.
Representative Jones of Vir
ginia has introduced a bill in con
gress, granting probationary inde
pendence for the Philippine islands
from July 4, 1913 until July 4.
1921. This willl be long enougl'
to see what they can do with it.
A report to a California
paper is to the effect that a pris
oner who arrived at the Peniten
tiary, shortly developed smallpox,
and that the other prisoners were
immediately quarentined to pre-,
vent them from breaking out.
Senator La Follette furnish
es the interesting information that
when Teddy became president,
the total amount of stock and
bond issues of all combinations
and trusts, was $3,784,000,000,
and that when he retired from
office, it was $51,672,000,000.
This statement is enough to bust
Roosevelt's claim to being a trust-buster.
The following suggestions to
the coming candidates might serve
as valuable inserts in the platforms
upon which they decide to stand
at the November election:
Upon the common or public
schools, rests all other educational
institutions of the Territory. It
is from the public schools that the
masses of the people are educated.
Therefore I shall advocate raising
the gmdes of the public schools of
the Territory as far as can be done
to the present grade of our high
schools, therefore, better teachers
and better salary for the public
school teacher; thus educating our
boys aud girls at home. I shall
advocate a uniform system of
school books for the public schools
of the Territory, free or at actual
cost as near as can be accomplish
The educational institutions of
the Territory should be maintain
ed and sustained, making them
equal to any in the Union, but
should be conducted upon strict
economy, rendering service com
mensurate with the position oc
cupied and salary paid.
I shall advocate a broader local
I believe that the people should
rule in all things. The closer, the
people keep the public servant
under their control, the safer are
the people and the farther removed
the public servant, the greater
danger to the people, therefore, I
am in favor of the initiative, ref
erendum and recall.
(This for the future Gov
ernor.) If I a in appointed, I
shall, to the best of my ability,
enforce the laws of the Territory
and I will give the various islands
of the Territory, in so far as the
the governor can, an honest law
enforcing administration, by ap
pointing those to place and posi
tion who have the best interest of
the Territory at heart, and no one
will be excluded by me from such
appointments, because he may be
either rich or poor, but I shall
make it my business to know that
my appointees are honest, capable
and law-enforcing men.- Such
shall be my course as to all Terri

The Missouri Ruralist has a.i
editorial on "The Nature of a
Hog." We have observed that
the nature of a hog is to grab
everything in sight and if he can't
get it all, to keep somebody else
from getting it. That's the nature
of the Territorial breed, anyhow.
The fact that heavy seas have
delayed work on the new Hanalei
