SATURDAY, ..... SEPT. 2, 1905
The Secession The Everybody's Magazine bns the following
ol Norway short account of the history of Norway and
Sweden and the cause which has led up to the dissolution of the
For over four hundred years, from 1370 to 1814,
Norway was a province of Denmark. Against ber will
she was transferred to Sweden. Bernadotte, one of
Napoleon's marshals, who had been elected Crown
Prince of Sweden by the efforts of a coalition of nobles,
King Charles XIII beihg childless, united with Eng
land to compel Denmark to make the transfer. In
1818, Bernadotte succeeded to the throne as Charles
XIV. He united the two countries, but each kept its
laws and its national legislature, with power to legis
late for its own territory subject to the royal veto, and
representatives from each sat in the cabinet. Ever
since the union there has been a strong opposition to
it. Norway is more liberal, more democratic, as is na
tural in a land of mountaineers, sailors, and fishermen.
The nationalist movement has been stimulated for .
sentimental and poetical reasons by Norwegian writ
ers. Norway is for free trade, Sweden for protection.
Since 1890 the Norwegian nationalists havo demanded
a separate Minister of Foreign Affairs and a separate
consular service. A bill for the latter purpose was
passed by the Norwegian Storthing, or national assem
bly. It was vetoed by King Oscar II, one of the ablest
and most democratic of rulers. Thereupon the Storth
ing declared th union dissolved. Sweden declined to -recognize
the dissolution. Norway invited certain
royal families to furnish her with a king.
Recent despatches say that the German Emperor shows a de
cided sympathy towards Swedeu, while Russia who covets Scan
dinavia, is hardly in a position on account of the war with Japan
and the internal troubles, to take much of a hand in the controversy
so that possibly it may fall to tne lot of King Edward and the
German Emperor to name a ruler. Yet the controversy is of so
great importance that as one eastern paper says: ''It involves, or
may involve, the command of the Baltic and the exclusion of Rus
sia therefrom. In snort, it is so dangerous that it will have to be
put to sleep.'' g
The Loss Of The indications are that unless some de-
Spreckels Park cided step is taken at once theAd mission
day races are the last that will be run at Spreckels Park. The Maui
Racing Association for many years has given annual meets at this
park and the events have, considering the number cf animals en
tered, been equal, if not superior, to those held in the "good old
days" at Kapiolam Park, One thing which the Maui Association has
always prided itself upon was that it stood for square sport, but
unfortunately in the last few years the public interest has seem
ed to lag and as a consequence the members themselves have be
come indifferent to the extent of permitting the Association to run
into debt. There is in the neighborhood of two hundred dollars
outstanding in delinquent dues, and it will take ei;ht hundred
dollars to put the Association squarely on its feet. Kamehameha
Day in Honolulu in years past was the day of all days, but with
the abandonment of the race track, died a natural death, and last
June, was so far as this class of sport was concerned, a hollow
sham as a holiday. Shall racing oh Maui become a thing of the
past? Let those who own fast horses get together and see what
can be done to keep alive this time honored out door sport.
Patronizing The Pacific Commercial Advertiser of August
Home Paper 29th mentions that the enterprising Honolulu
merchants are making more and more use of its publication
(Sunday edition) as an advertising medium, and that its circula
tion has reached the high water mark. The News, since the tak
ing over of the plant by the company formed for that purpose, has
also reached an advanced mark in size, in circulation, and adver
tising patronage, enjoying not only the support of its live island
merchants but has a representative showing from the commercial
houses of Honolulu. While the advertising columns are comforta
bly tilled with dependable and trustworthy concerns there is
'always room for one more," and the fact that there are advertise
ments now running which commenced with the initial number,
demonstrates beyond contradiction that advertising in the Maui
Will Build A Breakwater.
Pinal arrangements have just been
completed whereby the Kahului Railroad
Co. will commence improvements to Ka
hului harbor which will involve some
thing like the expenditure of $ 100,000, on
a breakwater, thus making the Kahului
harbor as safe as that of Honolulu. The
harbor will be have a uniform depth of
thirty-three feet and with the breakwater
will permit of steamers and vessels of the
largest tonnage remaining at safe an
chorage in the heaviest weather, instead
of having to go out side as is now the
Twenty-eight additional cottages of
spacious dimensions suitable for the hous
ing of the laborers and their families will
soon be in course of construction.
Superintendent Filler' object in thus
building up Kahului is not as has been
supposed, to vie with any other town,
but to build up a model workingmens'
town whereby comfortable living quart
ers and nearness to their work will be the
means of making the laborers more contented.
A good many of the men who work on
the waterfront live in Wailuku which
necessitates their rising earlier and get
ting home later, but with the new arrange
ment this will all be done away with.
Work is steadily forging ahead on the
Faia extension up to the new mill; on the
spur to the Wailuku Sugar Co. and on
the extension for the passenger terminal
in Wailuku, which will be just makai of
the Settlement house, thus obviating the
necessity of the residents of upper Wai
luku hiring hacks.
Ample land has been acquired which
will permit of the erecting of an attrac
tive passenger depot and freight ware
house and the laying out of attractive
Maul Has Better Ponies.
Peace Out of the original eight demands made by Japan's
Terms peace envoys, five were granted. Russia refused to
relinquish the interned warships and Japan waived the indemnity
for war expenses and limitation of Russia's power in the East. By
the terms of peace Japan establishes herself as the paramount
power of the Orient. In the obtaining a port of the continental
United States as the seat of conference of the peace envoys the
power of the Hague has been diminished, and in the amicable set
tlement of the terms of peace President Roosevelt has won for
himself the reputation of being the greatest statesman and diplo
mat of the century. This pride is not a matter of egotism on the
part of American citizens, but is voiced by the press and diplo
mats of the civilized world;

could know exactly what money the county pays out from month
to month, and that all expenditures could be observed for possible
overcharge, errors, or other faults.

HONOLULU, Aug. 30 "I think,"
said an Oahu polo enthusiast this morn
ing, "that our team is just as good as
that of Maui, as players, but the Maui
men have certainly better ponies than
our fellows have. Not that I'm making
any excuses," he hastened to explain,
"for the careful training of ponies and
the selection of good ones is very much a
part of the game, but facts arelacts. I'm
afraid our ponies are on the elderly side
while Maui has some beauties. Sure

Both teams were out for light practice
yesterday and will be out again this
afternoon. The practices are watched by
a large crowd of lovers of the game and
speculation on the result of the match for
the championship is running high. Maui
still remains the favorite in the betting
and quietly, a good deal of money has
been put up.
The arrangements for the polo ball
have been concluded. The Royal Hawa

will take place next Wednesday night.

Mrs. Copp took a turn for the worse
last Sunday and the relatives of the Judge
and his wife were immediately summon

attending her at intervals during her
sickness was called and performed an
operation which greatly relieved her.
Mrs. Copp has been a sufferer from
rheumatism, which latter developed into
dropsy, but it is now believed she will ex

Aside from the immediate family, Mrs.
A. N. Kepoikai and Mrs. George Weight,
nieces of the Judge, and Judge Kepoikai
have been in attendance during her re

friends, as well as relatives, are very
greatful for the assurance given them by
Dr. McConkey that Mrs. Copp is on the
road to renewed health.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17. While
coming into the harbor yesterday after
noon, with the maimed hull of the Ben
nington in tow, the cruiser Chicago was
caught in the combined grip of the wind
and a strong ebb tide which heeled her
over and ran her nose aground on the
shoals off Angel Island. The Benntng
ten, being thus left helpless, swung in a
wide arc at the end of the tow line and
was likewise in a fair way to strike the
bottom, when her commander, warded
off danger by dropping the gunboat's
anchors. In the effort which were then
made to work the Chicago back into deep
water under her own power, with some
assistance from the tug Fortune, the
larger vessel was much hampered by the
drag of the Bennington, and when she
finally slid off the shoal bumped into the
gunboat with so much force that a seam
in her side was opened, starting a leak in

I desire to make public acknowledge
ment of my thanks to the people of War
luku for the hearty and effective support
which they so generously gave me during
the " lute unpleasantness."
In view of the confidlnce reposed in
me, it seems proper to say that during
my stay in Wailuku, I have laborect un
der the impression that my business here
is to teach school. In my anxiety to do
my duty and to give the tax-payers an
adequate return for their money, I very
likely have made some mistakes. If so,
I shall gladly admit and correct them.
In addition to the professional inn
teres which I feel in the proper conduct
of the Wailuku school, I now have the
added incentive of personal obligation to
the citizens of Wailuku. It shall be my
most earnest endeavor to promote the
welfare of the school in every possible
way; to bring it up to a standard of effi
ciency second to none in the Territory,
and to make it what it ought to be an
institution that will fit our young people
to take their proper place in the business,
the society and the citizenship of our
