'."The ' important thing now is what you. and

f'What ire ought to think tonight is not that
the Democratic party iron a great virion, but
that their 1 i a rrixt deal to 1o with the I'nited
State, and that it can bexf hr done by forgetting
that ire are partisan, and forgetting erergthing

WICHMAN & CO.,
Dispatches from lYa&hington this morning re
porting that Wilson will send a "small commis
sion of personjilly-chosen investigators''' to Ha
waii, the Philippines and Porto Kico to investi
gate conditions, confirm what this paper "editor
ially stated as long ago as December 20. On that
date the Star-Bulletin printed the following:
One of the possibilities of the present governor
ship situation is that soon after Wilson's inaugura
tion the new president will send a trusted emissary
to the islands for an investigation, not only to deter
mine which of the rival candidates for Frear's job
is deserving of the crown, but also to get a new line
on the same conditions that Fisher went into so
It is known probably to but a few outside of one
of the several inner Democratic circles that an
other investigation jnay be asked for. The Star-Bul-UiUir6asiiiformatI6nIrm
two or three sources that
indicates either sincere or pretended dissatisfaction
among certain Bourbons with Fisher's probe. 'Not
leng ago there were rumors that an. appeal to Wil
ton for a Democratic investigation had already been
drafted. Whether this has been presented or not it
ii impossible now to say, but it is not at all unlikely
.tnat tne gathering of prominent party members in
Washington now has more significance than a lobby
in g-bee for any candidate for the governorship.
According to rumors from Washington, the
appeal to Wilson for another investigation here
has been drafted and presented, and this morn
ing's dispatches evidently are the result. How
ever, it should be kept in mind that the investi
gation quite evidently has not leen entirely de
cided upon and may dissolve into thin air.

M. M. JOHNSON Some misunder
standing seems to have arisen as to'
the financial status of the merchants' i
association a year ago, one statement
being that during the past year we 1
cleared off a heavy indebtedness. As
a matter of fact, when the change in j
directors was made, u-he outgoing
treasurer handed over'to the associa-.
tion a balance of $2,1 W and debts of
only $700. ' i :

It's a pretty good guess that if President Wil
son sends to Hawaii an investigating commission
made up of college professors, one of the mem
bers thereof will be our old friend Dr. Charles
W. Kent, of the University of Virginia. Dr.
Kent spoke lefore the Pacific club here one night
and genially prophesied the downfall of Taft ami
the election of Wilson. While he was in Hawaii
he kept his eyes and-ears open, but his speech
was extremelv limited. It is safe to sav that Dr.
Kent was not idle here.
Mayor Fern's humane plan of working the
county prisoners outdoors on his own premises
is simply an indication that Hizzoner has more
advanced ideas than most of us on penology and
anthropological somatology. Quick, Secretary
Miles, the dictionarv!
Col. Koosevelt will feel pretty envious when
he hears about the challenges to duels in the
election at Versailles vesterdav.
That French presidential election was almost
as exciting as a Hull Moose convention.
