Six years is too long a tme for a poor man to
serve, too short for a good man. National poli

leave a real impress on the history of a nation
reward a popular president by more than one
term and to punish a selfish man by defeating
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

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
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 constructidn is largely of concrete and
metal. . Still, to give the maximum f protection,
the municipal authorities, eithet police or build;
ing inspectors, should have the ? right to order
reasonable changes made and the power to en
force their ordersV which, it would appear from
Mr. Miehlstein's report, they have not now.

PROMOTION WOOD 1
BOOSTS FOR LECTURE
- The Democratic board of supervisors is fear
lessly approaching the question of purchasing
steam-rollers. It will be remembered that the
last board also approached this question and then
backed hastily away because of numerous, per
haps unfounded but certainly peculiar rumors
that favoritism was being shown to certain of
those who have the rollers to sell. Probably the
Bourbons will do their business more publicly.

John Hughes, chairman of the horse
driven floats section, has a corps, of
hustlers who are finding plenty to do,
as the time for closing entries draws
near. The Normal school, and the Ho

when tne latter was taken ill, as head
of the Waikikl regatta and plan for
representation of the Landing. of Ka

vessels which were actually used by
the great king himself, a "hundred and
twenty years ago. One of them Is the
property of Prince Kuhio, having come
to him from the late King Kalakana. It
is on Hawaii and has been sent for.
The other was brought to x Honolulu
yesterday and offered to Mr. Wise by
A. I C. Atkinson, the present owner.
It was at Puuloa, and is in such con
dition that it may need almost a new
bottom. These canoes are bigger than
those usually seen. They are between
fifty and sixty feet long and four feet
It was in these identical canoes
