JC3D ADVICE. ON THE CHARTER
In the course of a yery interesting meeting of
: c Civic Federation Uast: jiight. for, the discus
:on of a short-baUot; city charter Judge A.'
' lahaulu of Waialua'pointeout with vigor and
urneitness-the necessity of putting beforethe
c lectorate of this city and Wunty'an explanation
c;f the principles of the, proposed charter.
Judge lahaulu'siadvioe, was practical and to
the point, and he followed it with the suggestion
cf a praciical method, for .aig .it out. He
urges that'mcn.W'ho'arefaniiliail with the short
ballot or comraission form of g6yenment explain
to the Totera' of every precinct in the city and
county just what short-ballot government is and
, hat improvements in,municipal administration
it ought to accomplish. Judge Mahaulu favors
carrying the; question- home to ' the Hawaiian
voters by speeches to. them in every precinct.
And when he says that unless the matter is tak
en up in this broad and thorough way, the suc
cess of the entire plan will be endangered, he
does not exaggerate. , '
v Judge Mahauln speaks as a Hawaiian and it
is fair to.assume that his point of view is shared
by a large percentage of the electorate. Person
ally, he heartily favors the short-ballot form of
vernnient, but he says without mincing words
that many of the Hawaiians will resent any at
tempt to' establish over them a kind of govern
ment of which they have little adequate under-
Jude Mahaulu's suggestion of a systematic
amnaign of education in every precinct is a
obd ona The Star-Bulletin would like to see
the committee of thirty-three, now in charge of
the proposed charter evolve some, plan for pre
senting tfie principles of the short-ballot govern
ment throughout Oahu. It is not necessary to
wait until the draft of the legislative bill is com
pleted.1 As to the main features of the plan tjiere
is much unanimity.
The delay will come in settling details. The

The two great, factors in China's hitherto un
ucfissful fight nfor general iecognition of the
reptiblic; have: leen the diplomatic and the finan
cial factirsl From the emphasis that the "Six-
I'o wit" group of bankers has placed on the ne-j
cessity for China's agreement to the terms of the
proposed loan, it almost appears as if the finan
cial factor should be mentioned first.
From the diplomatic standpoint, the United
States, say students of international relations,
hardly has a valid excuse for not recognizing the
Oriental republic For instance, the Outlook re
cently pointed out editorially that the United
States lenefited;:immeasurably from the recog
nition ?nf France during our struggle for freedom
'n-1778. Uncle Sam himself has again and again
f;6gnized Latin-American republics which have
-prong front overnight revolutions. So far as:

claim for our recognition. -p ' A
Vif jpcnsranie,. significance is a. dispatch
printed; this morning from Peking stating that
IJussla has presented two notes to China, one de
manding paymenton the' arrears of the Boxer
indemnity, and he; other protesting against al
leged loiscs of UuKsian merchdnts in a provtnee
haying a paper currency financial basis. In Pe
king this is naturally i. taken as an attempt to
force China to accept the terms of the six-Power
loan, Xlyssia, of course, being one of the partici
pating and benefiting Powers.
" Summarizing the whole situation, and after
consideration of the international intrigues of
the, kings of finance, the history of the United
States' own struggles for freedom and recogni
tion, the precedent we have followed in other
cases, it seems that China has some reason to be
