The great ilex of any, century in to lc meas

THE A. B. C. OF THE PRIMARY.
Tlie Loislatiire of 1911 played thtr role' of
faint-heart Jn one important particular. It
faildl'to pass a direct primary law.
The IiKlature of 1913 it in tV be hoped,
' will' he 'composed of men with1 intelligence
enough and backbone enough to put through
such a law, and in uch form that it will be
workable in Hawaii. . ... ' ' ' s
The direct primary principle is the right
principle.' ' It now remains for brains and in
dustry to draft a measure that will fit local con
dition will be easily understood and easily op--crated,
with4 the minimum' of red tape and the
maximum of independent chou;e for the voter.
. Within a few days the Republican precinct
clubs of the Territory;' will begin organization;"
T)ie Kepublfcan;party -in; Hawaii is -committed
to tlie direct primary, if past utterances count
for any thing but wind and vote-catching. And

'Hawaii.,- V ; ,.'' -: vJ' :'"mJ':
Tlierv' are in this communlty'ihen' who'havt
devotetl months of study to this progressive po
litical method- The .Star-Bulletin suggests that
the prvcinct clubs begin a systematic campaigL
of education; and that these men, suvVas Chief
Justice A. G. M. Robertson and Judge W. II
Whitney, be asked to explain the direct primary
principle aud its possibilities here. The pri
mary is a fathomless mystery to nine out of ten
voters; a; mere name. It means nothing tan
gible. Plainly, with a Territorial convention
and a Leirislafure comincr, it is time that the
voters know what kind of a law to seek.- The
Wisconsin jaw,' the. "Berkeley plan", the Ore
gon law,, the noted Oeran law of Xew Jersey,
drawn up laigel. by; Governor Woodrow Wil
son, all should be, made available .for voters
and the merits of each dissected and analyzed.
Those in Hawaii who ,are deeply interested
in the passage of such a lliw here may be relied
upon' to listen to an invitation from precinct
clubs to explain the workings of the measure
and a sort of infdrmal lyceum.may well be es
tablished to pave the way for legislative action
Then, if 'the Legislature refuses to pass the law.
the voters of this Territory will know where anc
how and j why it cringed from carrying out tin
primary plank in the Territorial platform.

FINANCING PUBLIC GOOD.
. Honolulu is today working on a problem .that
many cities of the United States have faced and
some of them solved. That problem is the prolh
lem of the multiplying civic, commercial, phil
anthropic and promotion organizations.
The movement here to bring under one head
and one efficient management as many as pos
sible of the commercial and quasi-public organi
zations is progressing slowly and carefully. In
formation is being sought on what other cities
. There comes to hand now a report as to how
one city is solving the question of funding the
various public anil commercial enterprises to
meet - the demands from insistent and - worthy
sources. The city is Seattle, where within the
past year there has arisen a strong movement
for amalgamation of the leading commercial
bodies to prevent duplication of work and wast
ing of funds.
The trustees of the new .Chamler of Com
merce of Seattle have adoptedwhat is known as
the "budget system", now invogue among the
larger commercial bodies of the United States.
The budget will be made up annually, and the
,,;nd ap)rtioned for each bureau of the cham
ber. Tlie major portion of the fund is to go to
advertising and -exploiting, the city, a work
which corresponds to that done here by the Pro
motion Committee and - the Hands-Arotind the:
Pacific Club. Every other activity in which the
cham!er is interested, through its bureaus, will
receive a sura based on. its needs and the avail
able funds. ; ' :
It is nmlless to repeat here the arguments
in favor of welding together Honolulu's many
iCJjttered organizations, all of which sire devoted
to work for .the public gool in one fonn or au
other., Those, arguments were made when the
amalgamation movement was- first launched
here. It is recogqized that Honolulu jnuj?t se
cure closer cooperation among these. various
Ikxlies, and the central organization, with the
detailed work; carried on by bureaus;; has been
suggested.",.' . .! ": K ; " . , .
-rhe'budget system is only one of many fac
tors hat will aid ! in? perfecting a smooth-nnr
hing general organization and in avoiding the
waste of money. For the budget plan, it is
Haimed, in a statement on the general scheme
that it will safeguard businessmen from being
inulcted by persistent leggars under the guise
of charity or promotion. To quote : . '
It is -believed., that this method -of meet:
ing the needs of this community will re
ceive the approval of public-spirited busi
nessmen and citizens, who have heretofore
- -been subjected to continual solicitation for
one purpose or another, but who will, lin
ger this plan, be affortled the opportunity
to make one subscription to cover the com
. munity purposes for a given period.
This includes the 'assurance that they
will be relieved from solicitation for contri
butions for any other; purpose and that the
funds so produced willbe apportioned and
; distributed under the direction of the tnis
, tees of the chamber in such manner as to
; accomplish the greatest possible results
with "the funds so obtained. : v
The fund will be raised, not from the few
prominent businessmen and concerns who '
. have for years stood the brunt of pleas' for
financial aid in community work, but will
be ur&ed upon 'individuals who have not ':
heretofore taken an active interest in this r
v work, but who. will benefit directly, or .iiidi
. rectly as tlie rciult of the accomplishments
of one1 or another. of the chamir's bureaus.
i Sinincant7 of , the practical part bf the
recent "get-together moyement! in Seattle,
which resulted -in the addition pi many new y.
'and younger members to the chamber, ' the
accomplishments of that! organization with
in the last four months at a very moderate
expense have been striking. '
