Judge McKay has received his commission as first District Mag istrate of AVailuku. The judge is' honest, capable and popular, and commences his new term with the good wishes of ell.

It should be suppressed. Horace Wright, assistant editor of the Independent, ended has life on New Year's eve, by drinking carbolic acid.

Pioneer Plantation, like this sido of the Island, is enjoying the benefit of white labor, a number of white men having been brought down to do reservoir work. A large number of white men are shortly to follow, and if a number of California ranche hands could be brought with tluin to work in the car. a fields, the lazy, independent Jrps of Maui would find themselves outclassed.

Editor Maui News: On reading in the News of the social gatherings, liiaus, etc., it would seem that tho people .of Maui are a sociable folk. But tho Demon of Doubt still enters and asks, "How much of that social feeling is dictat ed by business rivalry, and how much by genuine good feeling, peaco on earth and good will to all? Scotland's poet, whose song on the reunion of long parted friends is still popular all round the world, puts it in the business form: As surely you will be your pint stoup So surely I'll be mine; We'll drink a eup of kindness yet To the days of Auld Lang, Syne That's business, drink for drink, dance for dance, luau for luau, even business cropped out in the welcome to long absent friends. "Maui no ka oi'' in many things, more especial ly in its social gatherings. But amid such social festivities there is no room for tho malihini. He's an Ishmaelitc. Honolulu, with its hotels, churches public bands, amusements, reading rooms, etc,, gives at least tho wel come of public hospitality to stran. gers at this festive season, and it is true that parting strangers leave it reluctantly. Without hotels in Kahului and Lahaina, they can only be considered nice places to leave. Self respecting strangers do not desire to be takeu into the bosom of private families on Maui more than elsewhere, but the inhospitable exclusion from the large gatherings of the Island, of all strangers, will not tend to make Maui a tourist's paradise. In Maui, you are ostracised If you are a stranger. Even the ship cap tains are tabooed as strangers, A gaily decked ship is rarely seen iri Kahului harbor, except on tho day of its leaving. Wo have generous, whole souled, high mined, sociable people on Maui, but until thoy can give some such inducements to stran gers as Honolulu offers, they should not invited them to visit Maul.

For particulars, sec or address, ROBT. NAWAHINE. Leader. Wailuku or Waitee. Death of David Center. The distressing news came by tho Claudine, of the death of David Cen ter on Wednesday afternoon at Hono lulu. He was taken to Honolulu on last Saturday's Claudine, and stood the trip quite well. On his arrival ho was taken to the Queen's Hospital, and Dr. Wood took charge of the case, assisted by Dr. Herbert and Dr. Armitage. On Monday morning a successful preliminary operation was perform ed, but ho was deemed too weak to stand the final operation, which was postponed to Wednesday morn ing. On YJedncsday morning it was decided to further postpone the final operation. . His death occurred unexpectedly on Wednesday afternoon, so that it was impossible to obtain particulars as to the immediate cause. Mr. Center was admittedly one of tho best plantation managers or. the Islands, and his loss will bo keemly felt by the community at largo as well as by his many friend and his bereaved family. Our Honolulu Letter. New Years came in with a boom in Honolulu. The old year was watched out and the new one in in hundreds of houses and by a large concourse in Central Union Church. A program of music prayer and dis course was carried out from 9 p. m. to 12 m. tho last number being car ried out amid the tooting of hours and the explosion of bombs. Rev Mr. Wetiwelt, formerly pastor of the foreign Congregational Church of Wailuku delivered the principal dis course. He i3 now assistant pastor of Kawaiahao Church. New Year's day was kept in vari ous waj's according to the tastes of tho individual. Races, luaus, trips to tho country etc., abounded. The electric cars up Pacific Heights wero crowded all day long. The weather has been lovely for the past week, cool and pleasant. The thermometer registered 56 in town one or two mornings. Messrs. C. W. Baldwin and S. Ke liinoi are both in Honolulu engaged in preparing their reports of the school of Hawaii and Maui for the use of the coming legislature. Miss Kennedy late book-keeper of Paia Plantation Store has accepted a similar position with the Honolulu Market Company the opposition to the Metropolitan Meat Company. Tho starting of this new Market has caused great joy to housekeepers, who now have a choice of markets and the benefit of the competition. The rapid transit seems now to be in a fair way to get started. The tracks are built from Punahou north nearly to the center of town and the power house approaching com pic tion. It will be a great relief to the travelling public when the line is in working order. It is not quite com fortable to drive down a narrow street with a two foot trench taking up the middle third and just, room for a carriage track on either side. The Superintendent of Public Works has interfered and insists now on their completing one block before they begin on another. The Automobile building is also ap preaching completion and the com pany only wait for that event to pre cipital thirty houseless carriages on to the streets of the city. Then look out for runaways and smash ups When the automobiles and electric cars both get to going tho nervous horse will have no chance at all. The streets of Honolulu are now congest ed far beyond tho point of comfort, what will it bo with these additions ? A dozen of the main streets ought to be widened, and tli3 street cars and drays banished from Fort street, January 2nd seems to take the place of the first of May of the States as moving day. Vans of household goods aro met in the streets at every point and every other man you meet has an anxious care worn look as though he had been trying to fit joints of old stove pipe. I Trade is dull of course as every one has exhausted his money and credit on Christinas and New Year, A fine polo club has been establish ed in Honolulu the leading spirits are Ed. Damon, Will Dickey, Alfred Car ter and John Flenning. They have already played two sets on the grounds of Mr. S. M. Damon at Mo aualua. Enthusiasm in this direction is growing and Maui polo horj.es ought to command a good price. Other clubs will probably scon be Tortured a Mouse. A gentleman prominently c nnect- ed with the Spreckelsviile l'lanta- lon was the other day passing by a house, occupied by some of the plan tation Chinese. Hearing a pitiful squeaking in the rear ol the house. io went round to investigate the ioise. There he found two Chinese rho had caught a little mouse and m ailed its two hind fe?t to a board. and were amusing themselves by frightening it and watching its useless struggles to free itself. He released io little animal, and it is more the pity that he did net have its ti.rtur- rs arrested at d properly punished for their deviltry. Personal Mention. Colonel W. H. Cornwell returned from Honolulu on Thursday's Clau dine. Tho police department of Wailuku gave a luau at tho Court House on New Year's Day. Dr. Armitage, who accompanied tho late David Center to Honolulu, returned on Thursday's Claudine. Mr. Chas, Jacox, of the New York Life, arrived on the Claudine Thurs day, in the interests of his company. Twenty nine colored persons from Tennessee arrived on Thursday's Claudine, to work on the Wailuku Plantation. - Mr. A. von Graevemeyer is visit ing Wailuku. He is an experience cane cultivator, and would make a valuable nssistajji on some ot our cane plantal ions. Matt. McGnnn and Mr. Cantin of Lahaina drove over to Wailuku on Thursday, returning to Lahaina the samo day. Mr. MqCann will take a trip to Honolulu today. Gus Schumann, John Raden, Man uel Reis and James Quinn, of the United Carriage Company, Honolulu, took a run over to Maul on the Clau dine, spending YVednesday night as the guests at Schrader's New Hotel. On Friday morning they left for Lahaina. Ex-queen Liliuokalani, Prince Da vid and suite chartered the Kinau at Hilo, arrived at Lahaina this morning, and where the party stop ped to enjoy a luau with Hon. John Richardson. At 10 o'clock tonight they leave Lahaina on the Kinau for Honolulu. NOT ICE. The Makawao Road Board will hereafter hold regular quarterly meetings to discuss road matters.
