Tha Governor's It seems to us there is a greet deal of
Resignation. senseless talk about the - resignation of
Governor Carter by some of the Honolulu papers,- While the gov
ernor may resign now or at some future time we fail to see the
slighest reason for such an act as a result of the recent appoint
ment of Judge W. J. Robinson.
It must be plain to any informed person that Governor Carter
has the confidence of President Roosevelt and the fact that, .the
president disagreed with the governor on one or ever mere than
one appointment is no reason for believing the governor has lost the
confidence of the president nor is it any reason for . the governor
feeling hurt at the presidents acts. Few persons have been
honored by a President as Governor Carter has been and for the
governor to assume that he should dictate, to the president or fail
ing to do so resignhis office seems to us absurd.
We have never doubted the honesty of Governor Carter nor his
desire to promote the best interests of all.
He has made mistakes and in all probability will make more of
them. ( ti-iu j 3' " '
Small politicians ever ready for a change in the hope of self
interests are always ready to make capital out of every thing.' We
have not forgotten that there was a great clamor, for the . resig
nation of Governor Dole
It will be the same with Carters successor.
The people are well off under the present regime everJ if the
would be governors are not.

It is planned to have three largo wharfs of a total length of one
thousand five hundred feet where any vessel may , dock a,n$ di

to the wharf and from there right into the train or into a carriage
and travel to their destination. : n i. nu uio

Few realize the great benefits that all these improvements mean,

, The Auditod and his ColonalJ. H. Fisher the Territorial
unauthorized claim . Auditor has repeatedly cautioned -the.
county officials not to pay any claim unless the, same. was. legally

Not only as the Territorial Auditor but as the adviser of the
County affairs he has made this rule a strict one. ,..(.. ,'.mi t
There are many poor 6chool teachers who at the last county
election were willing to serve on the election boards in the hope of
getting a few ext ra dollars with which to purchase necessaries .that
their inadequate salaries would not permit them to buy but when
their claims were presented the auditor promptly turned them
down on the ground that the law forbids the drawing, of two
Although we must admit that the auditor was perfectly correct
in this and did nothing more nor less that a foolish law required
mm to ao yet we predict mat a number wno suffered by the en
forcement of this law will watch with interest the. position of .the
Auditor before the County board of supervisors next week when
the bill of the Star comes up for payment. This bill was incurred
by the auditor without any authorization and was for printing that
could have been done by local tax payers. . ;i ,; ,

The Value ot Slang.
Prof. BranJer Matthews bat a
good word to say for slang as a
vitalizing element in our language.
He Is quoted Id the New York , Her
aid as saving: "I consider Mark
Twain and Rudyard Kipling writers
of the best English we have today;
their" use of Slanrf is wonderful, and
they have made it a part of the
literature of the period." The
people,, not. the schoolmaster, - says
Professor Matthews, give our tongue
its virility. To quote him further;
"The English language belongs to
the people, who speak It, It is. their
owd , precious , possession, to deal
with a, t .their. pleasure, and at their
peril. ( The English., language .. has
gone on Its own , way., keeping Its
strength in spite ,ot the. efforts of
pedants, and. pedagogues to, h nd.lt
and to stifle it,, ever Insisting on
ccpewing ' its freshness as best it
could. ' 1 - -

whether in Rome or in London or in
New. York,, is, the real language of
which , the literary, .dialect, ia but a
subliniation. . Language ..is made
sometimes in the( library, it is true,
and in. the parlor also,, but far more
often, in the workshop andon the side

and the advertisement record for, us

the workshops- 1 '

Others, preferred by,, Mrs.. Rosa ,de
A rce,, mo thereof,, the gifl,, has peen
received, by,, governor. Pardee.,, The

of. In part the report is as follows;
i . This committee, believes that, cor
poral punishment may be necessary
iq extraordinary case, but we also
believe that under definite specified
conditions it should be .administered
to gjrls by women, and,,not by meoi.
The,comraittee,furtbqj;, believes that
the prautce of,cutt,ing, off ...the. haip

ing and adopted resolutions to be
put Into force as follows: 4

Rear-Admiral Joseph B. Coghlan
has delivered a sensational speech
to the Patria Society. He declaied
that the Navy of the United States
was far below the strength the public
believed it was, and instead of having
forty fighting shipB, as appeared on
paper, there were really only eigh
teen ships of the fighting class. Of
these two were out of order, so tbe
real Navy consisted of sixteen ships.
: iH compared the American Navy
with that of England and showed
that the United States was so fa r
inferior to that nation that It was
almost useless to hope that the United
States would ever catch up. ,n 1 "
"We are, greatly in need of a mer
chant n.ai ine,, but we are more in
need of battle ships," continued Cogh
hi an. "Tbe war in, the East has taught
one lesson, and that is It has shown
the battle-ship is the only vessel to
carry on war. and decide war ; at a
critical issue. We must build more
battle-ships if we are to hold our
own." - ' V. ' ; -

200 members. present, and Coghlan's
fearlessness in speaking;. pubiicly of
the weakness of the Navy . was broadly

knight in 1504.' A century later an
artificial hand was worn by Christian,
Duke of Brunswick.- Ambroise Pare
devised artificial limbs with movable
joints which were made for him by
artificers, of whom Lor rrine, a lock
smith, was the most famous. Pare
devotes a 1 special chapter to the
means ' of 1 repairing or supplying
natural or accidental defects in the
human body. He describes artificial
eyes and noses, ah artificial tongue,
and an artificial palate.' At a later
period Father Sebastian, a Carmelite
monk! made movable arms and hands.
In the earlier part of the seventeenth
century Peter Lowe", in his 'Dis
courses of the Whole Art of Chirur
gory,'1 gives representations of arti
ficial legs. 'About the middle of the
same century Falcinelll, a Floreotin
surgeon, mentions the use of artificia
eyes! of silver, gold, and crystal
painted in various colors; he also
describes artificial ears made of the
same metals, and fixed by strings to
the head or stitched into the skin
with gold or silver wire. Silver
noses are said to have been in use at
an earlier date."

Thumping the keys of a piano
is not music, and putting succes-'
sively various lenses before the
eyes is not an examination, even
though certain improvements in
vision are obtained.
Anybody can test your eyes
you can do it yourself, but the
scientific nse of lenses involves
something more than experi
menting. , Few can examine eyes and do
it intelligently and satisfactorily
quite a difference between eye
tests and eye examinations. Did
that fact ever occur to you?
