' .Now, Collier's declares these published letters
are forgeries and proceeds to' prove it in a most
businesslike and unanswerable way. The basis
of tiie proof is that the .letters were written on a
peculiar make of typewriter that,vas not manu

Jier's Uas secured plenty of evidence to prtjve tlie

vites libel suits were it not the truth.
The queerest part of the exposure Is how
ever, that Collier's declares M r. Hearst has in
liis. possession real letters and records just as
incriminating as those, he has faked, and the
question naturally. arises, Why has he tried to
palm off forgeries when he could have produced
to stand the limelight?
SANE TREATMENT FOR THE INSANE
One of the most important subjects that has
been taken up at the International Congress of
Hygiene and Demography, at Washington,
which J)r. J. 8. R. Pratt and other Hawaiian
medical experts are attending, has been that of
treatment of the insane. According to the fig
ures presented there were 184,712 insane pa
tients in American hospitals last year, and they
cost the people of the United States 32,000,000
in twelve months. More than half of this insan
ity is preventable, it is contended, and the con
gress discussed means to prevent it.
The cost of maintenance for the unfortunate
inmates of institutions for the insane exacts a
tax of slightly less than one dollar for every
adult male in the United States.
"Non-restraint" is the slogan of the commit
tee on insanity which has established branches
or state committees in more than half the states.
It is the newest propaganda in all medicine, say
its promoters. The movement is less than five
A fight against the superstition and mystery
phy let it be known that he intended to see that
Dix was renominated.
.Rut. the jeople of New York have relndled
against the "slick boss" and the New York Dem
ocrats refused to do his bidding on the govern
orship. They believed that Dix had been his
pliant tool, ami the recent police exposures, in
New York city strengthened that belief. Dix's
failure to force an investigation could have re
sulted from nothing else but the knowledge that
an investigation would trace the dirty trail of
graft right back to the doors of Tammany Hall
and to Murphy, who sits enthroned therein.
So Murphj' threw Dix over. 'The storm of
public indignation alarmed the astute manipu
lator of men and measures. Whether Murphy
could have controlled the convention to the ex
tent of forcing Dix on New Y'ork again is doubt
ful. Sulzer was named, at any rate.
. The power of the bosses is passing the coun
try over. The people are learning. They are

One ofvthe pledges tha't every legislative can
didate in Hawaii may well give the people is
that -he will support an act giving Honolulu the
right to assess abutting property for municipal
improvements. The Republican convention did
not wish to incorporate this plank in the plat
form and it missed being presented to. the Dem
ocratic convention, but it is clearly needed, it is
the logical way of getting public improvements,
mid it affords the ooard of supervisors a direct
waV of getting improvements put through.
President Taft exemplifies the national love
of baseball. -While the Chicago convention was
at its raging height, he was out at the Washing
ton ball-park watching the Senators lick all com
ers. Now -that the campaign grows hot, he is
rooting for Boston to win the world's series from
the New .York Giants.

Favor More Control.
Commissioners Wakefield and Mc
Carthy expressed views decidedly in
favor of the harbor commission's con
trol of the private wharves.
"We already regulate the charges at
the public wharves, and to a certain
extent, thote at certain private
wharves," said Mr. Wakefield. "This
is in line with our regular duty, and
if a public utilities commission is
formed, it w ill not and in natural rea
son should not take this responsibility
from the harbor commission.
"As we are m close touch; wito,
these matters we would be better

with conditions, to attend to all
wharfage regulations. I am certain

not, in. my opinion, broad enough to
