Eat Maui and central Maui by the construction of a good wagon

ot uMMixlaud are as essential as aie arteries in the human body.
Nor is it a dead expense, for the construction of the proposed road
will open up and ttevelap a largo area of farming, stock, fruit and
dairy land along its luie, which will add eventual minions to tno
alue of Muui lauds and produce. This is a much needed road, and
should be built at u"ce.

A new Circuit Court house is need

jgj 'the attitude ol President Koosevelt, of cougress, of England,
oiihQ Hawaiian Islands, of others interested, and of Cuba itself
tovvards, the Cuban Reciprocity trety tends to make it a very com
plicated political puzzle. One solution of tue puzzle would be for
Cuba t-i ask for annexation -mtright, but owing to the pride and
nf P.ii.i i,w r.b a, solution is neither to be hoped nor
feared at present.. There is some merit in the plea of unjust dis
crimination' urged in the protest of Great Britain, and the senate
will uesitate to do Roosevelt's bidding in the matter. No satisfac
tory compromise suggests itself and the indications now are that
the situation cannot be unt uigled by at extra session of the senate,
and that the matter will be allowed to drift for some lime.
The telegraphic announcement that China is debating the
proposition of adopting the gold standard, and that Mexico will
probably adopt the gold standard within the yeai are but natural
and inevitable results. When Hryan made free silver an issue of
his presidential campaign, he drove the writer of this editorial and
tuousandsxjf other lifelong democrats oat of his party, because
free silver or a silver standard are impossibilities. Silver will and
must ba used as a convenient subservient coin, but above its limit
ed use for making change and small payments, the standard value
of silver bullion in the world's market will fix its monetary value,
and no other safe rule cauld be adopted with silver, any more
than it could with copper, or any other base metal ;
. 23 It will be no mistake to graut to the counties the right to
manage their own schools and elect their own district magistrate.
The Hawaiians have grasped the idea of self-governmnt in j its
"broad American sense.and they need the responsibility of managing
their own county affairs in order to develop the highest aiid best
tnat is in them, and the deniai or repression of their rights is as
' cruel arid unnatural as is the compression of the feet of Chinese
ladies in baby shoes. If entrusted with the managemeuc of ttieir
own schorjis, it is almost certain that they will take a pride in de
veloping them to a high state, for the sake of .their own children.
j5 The News warmly and justly advocated the selection of Lahai-
nalSina as the proper site for an Agricut aral College, but if it bo
true that this admirable site cannot be diverted to that purpose,
and must remain as it was established, a theological seminary,! the
question arises, how far do the people of the territory care t go
in the suDDort of an avowedly sectarian institution. Such a school
as Lahainaluna might aud should be, is sorely needed on Mauijand
if Lahainaluna is not available, Wailuku offers just as desirable a
site for an industrial high school.

wireless telegraphy between the coast and the Hawaiian Islands
was an early certainty, and the prediction is coming true sooner
than its most ardent adherents had hoped for. Peter Cooper Hew
ett's discovery and application of the mercury vapor lamp to the
propulsion of powerful electric waves was the one thing needed to
make wireless telegraphy a commercial success, aud that having
been accomplished, tie rest is a mere matter of completing details;

With so many other things to think of at once, the matter of
tourist travel to the Islands is being lost sight of temporarily, but
spring tourist travel has already begun, with a promise of a large
rush of pleasure seekers to the Islauds this summer. It is not
best to wait till the rush is on before completing arrangements for
their welfare and comfort. The best advertisement for Hawaii will
be the returning tourists from bare to the mainland, and we must
do well by the first comers. ' ' -
