Hawaii's The county of Hawaii seems to be suffering from
Confusion a state of confusion into which her county official
have plunged her.
The Hilo Tribune of the 19th inst. gives an account of a recent
board meeting and airs the whole affair and poves conclusively
that Hawaii county's difficulties aro numerous and acute.
A communication was received from the county attorney in
wViirh Vin maintains that his office is not under the supervision of
the board was read and a resolution passed ignoing him and refu
sing to pay for the incidentals of his office.
Noa VV. Aluli had his official head decapitated and was notified
that his services would be required no longer. The following day
however the supervisors got on tho repentance bench and seeing
the work they had done made amends for their act and restored
Aluli to his official position.
On Saturday morning the fun began in ernest when Carl S.
Smith appeared before the board of supervisors as attorney for
Deputy Sheriff William J. Richard of Hamakua against whom
charges had been made. An opportunity was given Richard to
plead to the charges but his attorney presented a formal pleading
in the form of a demurrer. Some of the supervisors did not know
the nature of this proceeding and Desha objected to council being
nresent and insisted on the defendant pleading guitly or other
Smith held the floor for half an hour or more explaining what
he meant by the functions of Judges and juries and crossed swords
with Fernandes who claimed to have been insulted by Smith who
is quoted as having compared the supervisors to the judges who
decided cases of witchcraft a few centuries ago.
After some descussiou Moir succeeded in quieting down the diffi
culty and the matter will go over until January 2nd.

Friends piness of our little friends was crowned with
success and many little children whose Christmas wouldotherwise
have been barren were made happy by tho presents they most
Each child received one or more of the objects most desired and
will long remember the presents which to many were the first that
it was their good fortune to receive.
. On behalf of the children the News wishes to thank its friends
who so generously contributed to the fund necessary to make the
Prominently among whom are the following named persons:
Dr. Edward Arinitage, D. H. Case, Rev. Dodge, Hon. H. P. Bald'
win Judge and Mrs. A. N. Kepoikai, Mrs. Way and the Kahului
As we had the pleasure of being present at the time that those
presents were distributed among these little waifs who otherwise
might have been forgotten we can truthfully say that from the
expressions of joy as shown upon those little faces prematurely'
marked for the want of that parental care aud affection which is
so essential to the happiness of childhood that the kindly re mem
brance will not soon be forgotten.
Thus in their behalf we say thrice thank you.
Christmas Of all the holidays recognized in the world Christ
Tide mas stands at the head. All of the countries of
Europe accept it and really the greater part of Asia and all the is
lands of the sea and even in the greater part of Africa as a modern
map will show it too must be included.
One peculiar feature that makes Christmas stand out in bold
relief is that each year it represents a verification of that Angelic
proclamation which be epeaks peace on earth and good' will to all
men which can be truthfully declared the greatest message that
ever reached this world. It is really the only festival that occurs
in which countless millions of money are distributed in token of
the good will that we bear toward each other. And all take pride
in the knowledge that each year the sum so spent is growing
greater. No better reply can be made to the pessimist than to
point to this great fact which brooks no denail.
While Europe with her centuries of civilization and her time
honored millions of wealth strives to excel!, yet wherever the stars
and stripes are unfurled this sentiment eminently excells regard
less of race or condition and the day will eventully come when its
power will be more potent than the sword. And therefore kind
les within our hearts a hope that we are approaching the ' great
dawn of anew day when all will occupy a common ground of
fraternal feeling and re echo the sentiment of peace on earth and
good will toward an men.

Newspaper for ecasts show plenty
of work for Congress to do this win
ter. With railroad questions, tariff
revision, and reciprocity treaties,
the investigation of the Panama
Canal Commission and disturbances
in the Isle of Pines, tho ratification
of the treaty with Santo Domingo,
the Mormon issue and public lands
scandal, the statehood bills and insu
lar affairs, tho canteen, pure food,
immigration and Chinese exclusion
laws, and measures seeking to secure
a more elastic currency with all
these up f jr discussion and decision,
it is thought that, the coming session
of Congress outfht to attract a more
than usual popular Interest. The
Washington Post (Ind.,) however,
after giving an elaborate resume
of the outlook, predict) that Congress
will go slow, and act with conserva
tism, confining itself at the start
'pretty much to routine work."
The St. Louis Globe-Dnmocrat (Rep )
also believes that it will be several
months before any positive action is
taken, for besides the topics mention
ed, "the fourteen regular appropri
ation bills will have to be attended
The questions which the press sup
poses will occupy most time and
attention in Congress arc those re
lating to the tariff and railroad rates.
The papers which keep correspond
en Is at the national capital are watch
ing these questions with a keen and
anticipative eye, for it is thought
that the debate upon them will deve
lop not only the political weakness
or strength of President Roosevelt,
but will show Inw far party lines
have been loosened, and to what ex
tent the new spirit of independence
abroad in the laud has taken hold on
the legislation branch of the Govern
ment. According to his pet subjects
of legislation with more or less ad
vantage over1 his opponents. His
popularity In the House is unques
tioned. It is surmised, however, that.
he will encounter considerable diffi
culty iu his efforts to make the Senate
come around to his way of thinking,
but nevertheless such an unfriendly
critic as the New York Times (Ind.
Dem.) makes this favorable assertion
in its news columns regarding the
fate of the President's railroad mea
sures In the Senate:
"President Roosevelt has won his
first battle iu his campaign against
his Republican opponents in the Se
nate for railroad rate regulation,
and he has won it by Democratic
votes. It was made known definitely
to day that the Committee on In
terstate Commerce, which is in ses
sion here on the rate question, will
report a bill in accordance with the
President's recommendations by a
vote of 7 to 6 and perhaps of 9 to 4.
He has seven votes certain. Two
Senators, one a Republican aud one
a Democrat, are still noncommittal,
but even if they decide against him
he has a majority.
The New York Journal o? Commer
ce (Fin.) takes a somewhat different
view. It opines that "railroad legis
lation of some kind" ill probably
be adopted, but remarks through its
Washington correspondent as follows:
"There is much reason to suppose
that, during the coming winter, the
main center of Interest in Congres-1
sionil action will be located at the
Senate end of the Capitol. Not only
has the preponderating authority of
the Senate been markedly increasing,
even during the past three or four
years, but at this particular session
legislation of such a character is
coming up that those interests which
make the Senate their stronghold
will undoubtely do what they can to
strengthen their grasp upon legis
lation and to keep it perfectly firm.
Thore are some symptoms that these
influences will be less obstreperous
in a positive way than in the past,
but it would also appear that what is
lost in the direction of positive action
willibe gained in the vigor with which
they will antagonize measures coming
up from tf.e lower chamber, or in
troduced by enemies in the upper, to
wh'ch they feel serious objection."
As to turilT revision, The Juurnal
of Cominercs believes that the Pre
sident "will let it drift, and that it
will be pretty sure to do so during
the coining session of Congress."
This paper reaches this conclusion
after reading an article in the New
York Tribune (Rep.), which reports
Mr. Roosevelt's sentiments as follows:
"The President appears to have
discussed the subject of the tariff
with extreme felicity in his forth
coming message, for members of Con
gress, both 'standpatters' and 'read
justee,' who say they have read the
section dealing with the important
subject, express themselves as well
pleased with his utterance. It is as
serted that the President frankly
states his own opinion that there are
certain schedules which call for some
modification, expresses his confidence
in the ability of Congress to deal
adequately and efficiently with the
subject when the proper time for
such readlustment arrives, and adds
that the subject is so delicate a one
that he deems it best to leave to the
discretion of the legislative body the
determination of the time when such
readjustment shall become impera
tive and the extent to which the
modifications, when undertaken, shall
