Taking tho statement of Sunday's do
ings as given by tho anti-saloon
forces, it seems that tho general
welfnro of all concerned would have
been bettor berved by regulated sale
Tho coming of the Slcira with a
special exclusion Is assured. This

Indeed any other ocean.
Thrco hundred passengers may bo

Shrlners, Honolulu passengers wll

Then comes tho freight. Mr. Glf,
faid reminds the public, as others
halo reminded tho public, Unit
American (steamship lines cannot
operate profitably without freight.
It Is uufoitunnto that large Inter-
i of this city have contracted
fi eights In many instances without
making tho slightest request for the
consideration of passengers, and lis
a very natural lesult lurgu freight
carriers ure supremely Indifferent to
the passenger service of Honolulu.
Need wo lepeat that this Is not
good business fur Honolulu?
And since It is good business for
every person Interested In tho growth
of this city that theio shall bo nnt
ple accommodation for nil the pas
sengers wishing to travel to Hono
lulu, oblously enough tho lines giv
ing passenger service shoubl not bo
bcorned when bestowing tho freight,
I'rclght-carrjlng lines should caio
for the passengers, and passenger
linos that make Honolulu a terminal
nnd cater to Honolulu business
should be given fi eight.
That's business, and every nier

THE MOST IMPORTANT CROP.
Just what will conio of the plan
promoted In San Francisco for test
ing tho coastwlso shipping laws Is
not known. Tho announcement,
however, that such n test would bo
imido has served to stir up our fel
low citizens on tho Atlantic and
Pacific, coasts. Commenting on tho
possibilities and warning tho Ameri
can bhlp owners unit ship builders
to ba cm their guard, tho Lewlston
(Maine) Journal says: "Should
mi) thing occur to break down tho
piesent system of laws for the coast
wlso trade, Atlantic ships nnd ship
pers would bo sufferers to u most
teilous degree. All that Is left ot
American shipping is Its coastwlso
trade. This is prohibitive as to for
eign ships being thus monopolized to

of the Mia, and the investments be

nation nnd its national spirit. This
teems to bo good policy. Foielgn
ships underpay and underfeed their
heanion. They mo not hampered by
navigation laws, the same as nro
American bhfppers for the good of
tho sailor. Wo hnvo no question
whatever that tho government will

Under tho hitter heading may bo
classed tho Idea of Prof. William A.
.McKeever ot the Kansas Agricultur
al College that tho fanneis of tho
country should give at least as much
care to rearing healthy, Intelligent
boys mid girls as they do to the crops
ot tho field.
In order to nrouso tho fathers

Keever is sending out special bulle
tins to tho families In .the'. agricul
tural districts. Tlio3o bulletins hnvo
to do with bringing up children, and
the expenso of the distribution Is
paid by prlvato subscription among
the business men of tho State. Spo-
clnl attention ot our business men Is
called to this feature, to remind them
that they are not tho only business
men In tho world requisitioned tP
aid projects that may properly bo
classed as, governmental affairs.
"Wo havo special courses in poul
try raising, pig raising and horsu
breeding," Piof. McKcovcr fcjiys In
ono of these- bulletins, "while par
ents go-right on In' tho good old way
rearing children by guess, hcatsny

tho first children In many families
are used for experimental purposes,
and though they may be well born,
their piospects ot a useful career are
often blighted forover."
