Nor is the provision against more than one
term necessary. The people will always wish to
reward a popular president by more than one
nu and to punish a selfish man by defeating
i him. The case of France has been cited as an
example of a single-term presidency, but it is not
a parallel case; at all. The French president is
considerably more of a figure-head than an act-

Building Inspector, Miehlstein says in a re
port that local theaters are dangerous because of
fire hazard. It is perhaps true that dressing
rooms and rears of stages are sometimes made
repositories of inflammable material. It is also
very certain that the Honolulu theaters as a rule
are less dangerous than those of any large city on
the repositories of inflammable material. It is
also very certain that the Honolulu theaters are
less dangerous than those of. any large city on
the mainland. Few of the local playhouses have
stairways, the aisles are only slightly inclined
and the construction is largely of concrete and
metal. Still, to give the maximum of protection,
the municipal authorities, either police or build
ing inspectors, should have the right to order
reasonable changes made and the power to en
force their orders, which, it would apjear from
Mr. Miehlsteiu's report, they have not now.

BOOSTS "FOR LECTURE
H. P. Wood, secretary of the pro
motion committee, in a statement this
morning, urged the people of Honolulu
to attend the lecture to be given by
Mr." and Mrs. Edward H. Kemp next
Saturday night at the Opera House,
the seat sale for which is now open at
the rooms of the promotion committee.
"These three lectures," said Mr.
Wood, "are among the finest. They
bring to the eyes and ears of those
who go vivid pictures of the life ot
the great painted desert, and the re
markable Hopi Indians who live there."
The Hop! Indians' snaxe dance,
which will be the feature of the lec
ture Saturday night, is ; famous the
world over and the moving pictures
which will be 6hown were taken by
Mr. Kemp himself during a stay
among the Indians, and are said to be
the only moving pictures ever taken of
Following the lecture "The Indians
of the Painted Desert," Mr. and Mrs.
Kemp will give two other lectures,
"Yellowstone Park and the Sioux In
dians," with vivid pictures of the great
national reservation and of Indian life,
and "Panama and the Canal Up to
The second lecture will be given
next Tuesday night and the last one
week from Friday. The tickets arc
selling fast, and a large crowd is ex
pected. Much interest is being taken
in the lectures by the students of Pu
naliou and other colleges.

at least two entries.
The Hippest Job.
John H. Wise is the man with prob
ably the biggest job of all the chair
men just now, partly because his part
of the work is big anyhow and partly
because it was so late when, he took
it up. Wise succeeded W. T. Rawlins,
when the latter was taken ill, as head
of the Waikiki regatta and plan for
representation of the Landing of Ka
mehameha. He is picking out a list
of assistants and in the meantime
hustling for canoes, for he expects to
land the modern Kamehameha with an
escort of about fifty canoes full of
warriors.- Two of the canoes will be
ressetarwhich were actually used, by
the great king himself, a Hundred ana
twenty years ago. One of them is the
property of Prince Kuhio, having come
to him from the late King Kalakaua. It
is on Hawaii and has been sent for.
The other was brought to Honolulu
