and the papers that thus continue

and foifjet pitst uiihappy differences, if the Islands would prosper
politically, and it is to the press
naturally look for the consummation of this end.
St While Governor Dole is In
by Thurston and Jdin Doe, it is to be hopedhat Judges Gear and
Humphrey, also accompanied by Richard roje, will appear on the
scene, so that President Roosevelt may jiit knight against knight,
squire against squire, and experience some fit the discordant rau
cus which has agitated the Islands for tie' past two years. While
ths sympathies and aloha of the News are unquestionably with
Governor Dole and his party, still it is very desirable that the
other side should, be present at Washington, and that the figh for
supremacy should bo fought to a finish, one way or the other, and
orfco for all.
jj The threatened war between Russia and Japan has a more
vital and pungent interest to the Islands than appears on the, sur
faces i The bulk of ov,v labor js Japanese, and theie is much reason
to believe that if war is declared between Japan and Russia, there
will be an expius o the Japanese from the Islands, 6 enter the
army in Japan, f they should leave in large numbers, if would
very materially affect su'g'ar productions, and Its would be a wise
precaution on the part of the planters to be on the lookout for
men to take their place, f rem the coast ov anywhere else that labor
can be obtained ou short notice,
!8( No true friend of Hawaii will urge a sharp demarkation of
party lines at the coming election.- Were any principle save that
pf a good, stable and economic government of the Islands at issue,
lb would be proper to divide on such questions and leave their
decision to a vote of the people. But there is no question in issue
whielx would invite divisipp, The only jhject to be sought is the
election of good men, who cap and. will make good.. .laws and that
class of men is potxjonfined to any one party. j(Tne inference to be
drawn from th.ii? is too obvious for discussion.
The Boers will of courae congratulate 'themselves on 'the' cap
ture of Methuen, and the Irish commoners may yell themselves
black in the face in parliament, but he has little studied the
Uxitish character, who imagines that there can be but one end to
tJte Boer war. The conditions are different in the Boer war from
those which existed during the revolutionary yarj and' Methuen's
defeat will react mor terribly on the Boetshan would a victory
won- by'him. It is a safe guess tliat the end is not far off now.
