$5$ There is now practically a iusion of the ' intelljgent voters of
Maui, all bent on securing the best available material for represen
tatives in the legislature, and the light is on beiweeti them and thte
home rulers. It cannot be denied that among the home rulers
there are many Hawaiians who are honest in their convictions,
and who will follow the truth when ihey are taucht what the truth
Is. Robert Wilcox, who was over here recently, unloaded a lot of
bosh to the effect that ho would secure each home ruler 80 acres
of land,' chat he would have Hawaiian taught in the schools, that
he would give the Islands statehood.together with other like state
meets. His home rule audience were apt pupils, and any attempt
to reason with them is met by a repetition of Wilcox's golden
promises, and as a result the intelligent Hawaiians are discourag
ed in their attempts to enlighten their brothers. This should not
be a hopeless task however. By kindly pointing out to the home
rulers how totally Wilcox has failed in every measure" introduced
by him in congress, his failur to secure anything for the ex qucen
or for the fire claims.or anything else helpful to the Territory, the
home rulers can be made to see the truth. :

Q Public officers, under American institutions, are simply
public servants, and the people should have the full right to name
heir officers withoui being unduly influenced by the candidates
themselves, more especially so faroas( representatives are con;
cerned. Last week the pitiable , spectacle, was ' witnessed ( on tlie
streets of Wailuku,' of (a candidate for legislative honors circulating
a petition binding all voters to support his candidacy; for nomina
tion. As to the candidacy of this gentleman or his titnessor un
fitness for the legislature the News has nothing to, say,' one way
or the other..; But the News oes, unsparingly condemn ,on general
principles, any effort to unduly restrict thetfree and, , unhampered
right of the people to choose the best material available ,for. the
legislature. Had it been a petition forroad ovejseer,wor any Ipcal,
petty, pay office, the petition would.have been excusable, but when
it comes to selections for representatives, the NEVys pimply saysv;
"Stand back, gentlemen, and let your merjts and availability make
your fight for you, foe this session of legislature, at least.)'
' . '
jQS Now that Wailuku is beginning to occupy a,, prominent posi
tion as one of the leading towns of the Islands, there is pne, heed
which constantly becomes more painful and 'glaring, and that is
the total inefficiency of our schools to supply the actual needs of the
community. So far as our existing and proposed public and . pri
vate schools are concerned, they are all right in a measure, so far
as they go. But with them, the education of our boys and girls
stops short, except in the case of parents who are abletq bear the
xpeinse of sending their children away, to school, What Wailuku
must have is an industrial high school which will take up the edu
cation of our boys and girls at the "point where the priinary schools
end, and help to fit our young men and young women for the
battle of life. i

for a display far beyond anything attempted before.. The directors
of the Fair have the experience of past World's Fairs to guide
tljem.and it is a safe prediction that the St. Louis World's Fair will
be one of the wonders of the century. Hawaii must plan her ex

We find the following anecdote in
a Naples paper:' "At the postoffice
yesterday, amid the 1 large Crowd
gathered around the window, was a
young English lady, handsome, well
dressed and t accompanied by her
maid. The ycung lady, had just . pur
chased some stamps and was about
to affix them, to a number of letters
which she .held, in bet' hand. Deli
cately tearing off a stamp she said
to her maid, 'Pull' (sic) out your
tongue.' And the maid.i with Eng
lish impassivity, thrust forth her
tongue, while the mistess passed over
it a postage stamp, which sbe subse
quently stuck: on a letter. . She went
through the entire package of letters,
and for each one the obedient waiting
maid thrust out her tongue for the
mistress to moisten the stamp. Curi
