; The internal deVdopment of the city demands
a man of calibre atthe head of the city's func

himself with petty oUticians.
The external relurons of the city are to be
considered. The toirist tide already is setting
this way as a proplicor 1915, the year of the
Panama-Pacific ejoosition. Honolulu must
have a man who can worthily represent this city
worthily in the ejes of the world. We must
not blush for our trfftcial representative; he
must not be a source cT derisive laughter.

Col. Sam Parker will not only give the office
of mayor some standing in Honolulu,, but he will
end the laughter of visitors who are told that Joe
Fern is the chief executive of the city.
Every accusation of double-crossing between
the Fourth and Fifth districts brings nearer the
time when a direct primary law will be passed
and the convention system wiped out.

As an observer of events in Hawaii,;
for some thirty years, the writer of
this article has always supposed that
we are a complaisant, happy, and
prosperous lot of people as live any
where. True, we bicker a little
among ourselves, just for the fun of
it, but let a stranger come here and
criticize our ways and manners, and
immediately we all, metaphorically,

an old mother hen does to a strange Zealandia, and will occupy their
chicken invading the precincts of her
brood. I said we are prosperous, each
according to his own standard of life,
and happy according to his moods.
All these things strike the stranger
from the mainland, or other parts of
the world, very pleasantly.
Much came out in Mr. Fisher's in
quiry concerning "small farming." I
think, to an observant person, having
lived here for many years, and having
seen many, experiments in small farm
ing,' that about all there could - have
been done- in this direction has been
Truth to tell, I think it Is generally
admitted that the only-possibility for
smafl farming has been' induced, by
the plantation systems I have been
told that some of the Portuguese, and
others, that have succeeded in getting
small pieces of ' land in close contact
with the plantations have succeeded,
at least partially. Being close to the
plantation, tany spare, time the home
steader may have can be utilized for
wages on the plantation. Thus, the
small farmer . can develop his few
acres part of the timetAd earn mon.
ey the rest of the time.
Tne, writer 01 tnis arucje, years
past, rode over tile land, whereon Ho
nolulu and Makaweli plantations now
are. . Both these lands, especially , in
the summer, were tenanted by dead
ekania and klu bushes, and the red
dustv blowing where it listeth.
Had a thousand acres of. this dry
land been given, to a small farmer, he
could not have supported a family
or that amount it is even doubtful
whether it would have, supported, the
year round, -one hundred billy goats.
It is not certain that any other sys
tem than the plantation one, had it
been pursued in that past , would have
developed these islands, both indus
trially and commercially, as has- been
done under the past system. It is a
debatable question whether, had any
changes begun Uong ago, that we
should now be in as substantial a
place in development and capital as
we are today.
The Delegate himself, who brought
the complaints against the Governor,
acklowledged that he thought there is
something wrong in the land, but that
he cannot say what is wrong. It would
appear to an impartial critic, that he
ihould not have caused all the dis
turbance unless he had been ready to
put his finger on some one wrong.
This he failed to do.

rstead of calling things "wrong,"
would it not be tetter to say that
matters here are not exactly as we
would have them? But this is true of
nearlr every country. Indeed, far more
true in older countries tan here.
Ideally, it would be better to have a
