Col. Hoosevelt contributes an editorial to the
latest Outlook commending most vkrorouslv the
work of Arthur Lee, of the British parliament,
who succeeds in getting the whipping-post bill
passnl. Characterizing this as "an achievement
for humanity", Col. Koosevelt says that Mr. Lee
"has rendered a striking service to the cause of
humanity and decency throughout the civilized
world". He continues:

(ence to the article in the Honolulu
I PERSONALITIES 1 1 LITTLE INTERVIEWS ;
On nf the best features of the bill, in my judg
ment, is that providing for the flogging of male of
fenders. The Outlook has very properly protested
against the whipping-post as an ordinary instrument
ol justice. But there are certain kinds of cruel and
brutal offenses which are committed by creatures so
be astlike that they can be reached only by being
themselves made actually and physically to suffer.
Wife-beaters come finder this class, and so do the
loathsome beings who engage in the white slave traf
fic. The immediate effect of Mr. Lee's law on this
portion of the under-world was quite dramatic. Ac
cording to the reports both of the police and of the
vigilance workers, its passage was the signal for the
beginning; of a general exodus of the professional
white-slavers from England, so that both trains and
beats for the continent of Europe were crowded with
Uicm for several days. ' It is generally admitted that
the decisive feature in shifting them was the threat
the lash, the one thing they cannot stand. As the
London Times phrased it, "By a happy provision of
nature it appears that the skin becomes more tender
as the moral sense becomes more atrophied."
Mr. Lee may live, long and spend all his life in
power and accomplish much, and yet never accom
plish anything that will rightly give him greater sat
isfaction or that will represent a .greater gain for
humanity. He has made all good men and women
his debtors, in whatever part of the world they dwell.

waste of water ani to '.ualie the
rates according to the quantity used.
California. I know what ! a in talking
about. Three years ago . had meters
installed at my place in Manoa, vitb
the result that my water rates have
been cut in half. Every hsuiest man,
who is willing to pay for everything
he uets, should support the proposi
tion of having all water rates in Ho
nolulu governed by meter.
Ir. F. W. Dohriuann, the noted San Fran
o merchant, gave some very good ideas to the
inesshien- wlfo gathered at the. Commercial
luncheon yesterday to hear his talk. He
;ested a gwd slogan, "The Honor of Our
y Is Oufs." He urged, unity in civic under
ings, -aggressive action to advertise Hawaii's
rms. to the world and reap the benefits of
rist traffic, a cooperation among commercial
rests to make and keep the city clean and
utiful and progressive.
His declaration of faith in that apt phrase,
lie Honor of Our City Is Ours", is a declara
:i against the citizen who allows his city to
1 into ways of dishonor. It is also a declara
a against the citizen who allows his city to be
:adered, to be wrongfully accused, to le in
itxl by evil word or false 1-ejKH-t. The duty of
ry resident of Honolulu toward his city is
o-fold: first, to bend his best efforts toward
;blic improvement, political or otherwise; sec
dly, to guard against slander and malicious or
ivious lies that hurt the city's fair name.
"A gotnl name is nit her to be chosen than
eat riches" both in civic and private life. The
tyj good name depends not only on Ahat is
id outside its gate, but the thousand iougues
report inside its gates.
When it comes to the "pull altogether" for
public Improvements in Honolulu or the terri
tory, the example of a chapter of the Order of
Eastern Star in Berlin, New Hampshire, might
lw worth considering. A minute of the United
States senate tells of a petition from that -so
ciety Spraying, that an appropriation be made
for the erection -of a public building in that
city." Here it has been only the commercial
bodies that; have interested themselves in such
matters, with the addition latterly of . improve
ment clubs in matters of municipal improvement!?.
That the Promotion committee is getting re-sults-good
results is apparent to any but the
blindest of businessmen. Today's paper carries
an advertisement by the committee asking all
those who have rooms to let to communicate with
the committee at once. Honolulu is rapidly fill
ing with tourists. They are a visible, a tangible
asset, they pay cash as they go, they add a val
uable element to population, even if temporary,
they stimulate the entire city. The man who can
not see the i jeral lehejits to the territory from
the tourist traffic ought not to be at large.
