) If the rejmWicnn part 3' hopes to win out on Maul, or even to
win :i rdaco in the next political race, they must take the initiative
at once and properly organize the best elements on Maui, and al
Iho same time time ovoid the dictatorial methods which prevailed
al the last Kepublican Convention on Maui. The names of II. P.
Baldwin and J. P. Cooke cu ry strength with them, but there are
other factors which demand and must receive due recognition in
the r.ew deal, if anything except defeat at the hands of. the hune
rulers is to bo desired. Men like Dr. Raymond, IIou. .I V. Kalua
and Matt. McCann ore republican at heart and a leader is needed
to mold all of the republican strength on Maui into one harmonious
whole, including all who desire to rally under the republican ban
per. TUcro is a strong latent strength on M.a,ui ready to cast its
fortune with the republicans, for the reason that competent couuty
officers are simply not to be found in the home rule ranks. But to
gather, in the wanderers n more liberal policy must be adopted by
th republican loaders, and new men put at the head of affairs."
$ 'l i e latest papers from Uih bruvg news o the destruction by
lire of the elegant residence of Mr. Philip Peck, and the Hilo papers
just ly complain of 1 he lack of a chemical engine as the reason for
the total destruction of the building. Such catastrophes punctu
ate tho need of Waiiuku for proper protection from fire. With au
unfailing .supply of water piped through town under a pres
sure which obviates the necessity of anything save hydrants and
hose along the pipe lines, the householders of Waiiuku are absolute
ly at the vnercv of accidental or incendiary tiros. There is a suf
ficient appropriation available for the purpose of amply protecting
Waiiuku from fire, and it would be crimin tl in the authorities to do
lay giving ns tire protection until after we may have had a dis
; astrous tiro.' Further, rates of insurance are oppressively high
Lere, and a material reduction will be made 111 fire insurance as
$oon as we are properly protected. We have already organized our
fire company, and it is up to the authorities to do the rest. Step
Judging from the tenor of the latest news concerning the sit
uation in the Far East it seems almoso inevitable that the reply
which Bujsia is todiy to send to Japan will be the signal for an
outbreak of hostilities between those two countries, which nothing
but au active intervention of Great Britain and the United Stales
can prevent. Although the reply of Russia may be courteous,1 still
no one c iu believe that the Slav Lmpiro will alter its plans at the
dictation of Japan, which latter country is now pledged to a course
of action which will precipitate a war almost before this paper
reaches all ef its readers. Both countries are quite ready for the
conflict, whicn if fought between themselves only will be short,
sharp, desperate and decisive.
j5 The attitude of the United States in case of war between Rus.
sia and Japan should be determined largely, if not solely with re.
ference to our future commercial interests in the Orient. Strictly
speaking it is not the affair of the United States as to whether Jap
an or Russia dominates the East Asian coasts, and if Russia, ab
sorbs Manchuria, Korea- and nothern China, as now seems prob
' able, it is no personal quarrel of the United States. But we are on
the eve of developing an immense trans-Pacific commerce, and
whether Japan or Russia dominates the Far East ports, the United
States should look well to it that she has ample open ports, even
if they have to be broken open by our Asiatic fleet.
jjj There is a shameful practice entirely too prevalent in Waiiuku,
and the quicker it is stopped fcthe better it will be for all con
cerned. Little Hawaiian school girls on their way to and from our
public school are daily subjected to the grossest insnlts from both
young and lmdddle aged men, under the guise of jocular pleas
antry. These brutes realize what they are doing much better than
the girls themselves, and the News earnestly urges the police to
note and even arrest those who offer insulting familiarities to these
little girls. And every citizen who notices anything of the kind is
justified in applying bis boot or a club to these miscreants.
The evidences point to the
a new growth in the matter of residence buildings. This will not
bo i boom however, as Waiiuku has been cramped .for living room
for the past five years, and the need is ever growing more stren
uous, (juite a number of most desirable families have within the
past year sought in vain for residences in Waiiuku, and not finding
them have gone elsewhere, and some compelled to stop here have
arranged to have houses built for
deuces have recently been erected,
It now seems definitely settled that Congress ' will not at
tempt to make a county bill for the Territory of Hawaii. But what
Congress should do would bi to amend tha organic' act, dividing
the territory into counties along
bill and adding some features of
be further added to as fast as we

Misrepresenting o Senator.
We do not think that Senator Pet
tus. has been fully understood in the
matter of his alleged condemnation
of g-avy. It seems to be accepted
everywhere as a fuct that the vene
rable Alabama statesman has pro
claimed a sweeping, wholesulo ana
thema against gravy of all kinds and
conditions, consigned it to the index
expurgalorious; banished it forever
from the menu of civilized mankind.
He is placed in the position of st rik
ing a death blow at one of Hie
most precious of American institu
tions. No wonder an enlightened and
patriotic press has been stirred to
remonstrate in all its varying forms.
As we say, however, it does not
seem fair to Senator Petlus to take
all this for grauteds No uoubt he has
issued a malediction against certain
kinds of gravy that particular kind,
for instance, which is made of lard
and flour, and which brings discon
tent, if not flat anguish, to the very
stoutest enidriff-but nobody can make
us believe that hn has said au unkind
word against good gravy. There are
gravies and gravies, laudable, nour
ishing, vicious and unwholesome, and
certainly Mr. Pettus, one of the
finest products of the land of gravy,
must be the very prince of diffrentia
tion in the matter of their quality.
Here he is, at the advanced age of
83, hale, hearty, robust, with all his
faculties uninpared, a roaring old lion
of Democracy, and docs one tell us
that he derides and execrates the
food upon which every true Alabu-
mian has attained to greatness?
Senator Pettus was raised on pot
liquor, the grandfather, the vital
principle of all gravies. That invigor
ating fluid, joined to good yeilo.v corn
bread, fresh from the skillet, consti
tuted the foundation of a vigorous
system three-quarters of a century

Pfipering (the Pins
The first pins made in this country
were very crude indeed, merely a bit
of wire twisted int" a knot for a head
at oiv end, and sharpened to a pom!
at the other. Their si ccessiirs of to
day undergo a surprising varie'y of
operations before t hey arc considered
fit for use.
In comparison with the size of the
ohjict manufactured the operations
seem bew ilrierinyly numerous, but if
there be one process more remark
able than another in is "papering Un
pins " The papers, having been
passed through an Umenious machine
which, at regular in tie i;a!s,. accord,
ing to the size of the pii pipches up
a fold and pricks a hole in it. are
ready to receive the pins.
For this purpose there is another
machine, worked by two children.
One feeds the pins; the other the
papers. The first part of the ma
chine is a box about twelve inches
long, six broad and four deep. The
bottom is composed of small square
steel bars, sufficiently far apart to
let the shank of the pin fall through,
but not the head. These bars are
just as thick as the the space between
papered pins. The lower part of the
bottom of the box is made to detach
itself as soon as the row ot pins is
complete. How fter row, at regular
intervals, is received and passed
down a corresponding set of grooves
until it reaches the ready pricked
paper.' By tho nicest possible ajust-
ment the pins como exactly to their
places and are pressed into them.
By these method two little girls can
in one day put up many thousands of
ppers. Kansas City Star,

In New Caledonia there is said to
be an herb which has the rare prop
erty of revealing one's secrets. It is
know n as the datum stramonium und
has white flowers and rough berries
full of dark grains." They are treated
of in the current number of Annals of
Hygier.oand Coloniil Medicine.
A person who has swallowed the
tea made of this herb will, after fall

hidden and will also arise and go direct
to where his treasure is concealed.
