Si Tlms vvho are not personally ucciuainted with the conditions
which prevail in the South American countries cannot realize the
hit t er mid conUHiintuous hatred which rages in the bosom of every
Sr.anish-Amerionn from Mexico to Chili nsainst citizens of the
United States, notwithstanding the fact that the United States has
by the enforcement of the Mouroe Doctrine preserved the autonomy
hf'mnnv c.i these renublics and nrevented their absorption by for-
- i - .
eign powers. This bitter feeling is perhaps most pronounced in
Chili, where every first class hotel hangs out the sign, "sailors.
Americans and dons not Emitted." In the streets of trie principal
South American cities an American citizen or. blue jacket is con-
tinnnllv subWt to insult and frequently to assault. While as a
measure of self-protection the United States is not j et prepared to
abandon the Monroe doctrine, s-till it, is about time to round up
these dag'ies and teach iliem a lesson they need.

The running of mountain tunnels to develop water on the oif
fei-ent, islands is roeeivinjr much attention with gratitjing results
The great success scored at Lahaiua will give' an impetus to this
kind of work. The government is proposing to develop a tunnel
c.mnlv of water at Pohnoli suriusis on Maui, $a,0tX) having- been
appropriated for that purposa, although it now seems doubtful if

Si Thft Territorial authorities are perhaps by this time in a state
of "mental mellowness and receptivity which will enable them to

After nil that fieneral Arthur Mc Arthur has said concerning
