Look to The Republican victory Unit has just boon won is
the fences, an evidence of the confidoncp of 'lie people in the-
men elected to office. These men were elected on n platform that
calls for certain changes and a certain course that the voters have
a right to expect tho officers to carry out.
If the parly will carry out this course and fully fulfil the pledges
made they may reasonably expect a reelection at the polls two
Another thing that should be born in mind is that many of our
party are dependent on tho party for support durinethe time inter
vening between now and tho time for tho next election. Every
lender of the liartv should make it his business to see that all of
the Republican voters are given steady employment and kept sat
isfied with their party. Jf this is done now there will bono chance
for the opposition to down us two years hence but if it is not, done
it will take an immense amount of money and persuasion to con
vince tho voters that they have not made a mistake by casting
their lot with tho party in power. Let every member of the parly
remember we will need support two years hence and work con
stantly for the interests of the party and see that all of the needy
members are cared for.

Japanese School The Japanese all over the world are very
Children. much incensed at the attempt of the school
authorities of San Francisco to compel them to attend special
schools where all Mongolian children arc segregated. From an
intimate knowledge of the character of tho children of Japanese
parents we seo no reason for the acts of the school authorities and
feel sure that justico will be dono these people who by right of
treaty and the fact that they pay thei r school taxes as well as the
other nations are entitled to the same consideration as ooher chil
dren. Japanese children are cleanly in persons, obedient to their
teachers and studious and there is no ground for believing they
will exert any evil influence over their white playmates. While
every race is more or less prejudiced against all others -this feel
ing should not prevail to such an extent as to do a friendlv race
an injustice in our country that is too large-and too great to be a
party to a wrong of this character.
The two countries are bound together by mamy ties that will
make an adjustment of the San Francisoo controversy an easy one
The President is to be complimented in the prompt steps he has
taken to amicably solve the question and beyond a doubt the mat
ter will be amicably adjusted soon, even if the Federal Govern
ment has to take the matter into court to compel the San Francisco
authorities to recede from their position.
Change the From news paper reports of tha meetings
School system, of the Department of Educition many of
the Commissioners are not attending the meetings as they should
and a truant officer is talked of to bring in those who are frequently
absent. . '
The position is a very difficult one to fill properly and as the
Commissioners serve without pay it, is too much t,o expect them to
be present at each meeting and give each maUer the consideration
that it deserves. This failure on their part makes the school
system less in favor and as the Commissioners are compelled to
get their information from tho outside dislricts entirely from per
sons in the employ of the Board many are of the belief that a local
board in each County appointed by the Governor would make the
schools much more in favor with local people than they are now.
A law should be enacted by the next legislature providing for
more local control and supervision and leaving tho Honolulu Ter
ritorial Board in charge of the School course and examinations.
Every one mut acknowledge that in tho past the Commissioners
have done excellent work and the conditions have been such that
a central Board was the best that could then be done for the
schools but that day is past and we must progress if we would
keep abreast of the times and
keep pace with our sister states
Indicting Grafters. The indictment of Abe ReuT, the political
leader of San Francisco, together with Mayor Schmidt will doubt
less have a good effect on the moral tone of tho city and bo felt all
over the States where grafting politicians are wont to carry on
their nefarious work at the expense of the public. Hardly a city
of any consequence has not been pillaged by a set of scoundrels,
and it was but recently that the people of tho United States seem
ed to wake up to the fact that honest men with the courage to do
their duty were of more servico to tho people than a part j nominee
for the reason that in too many cases grafting politicians were at
the head of tho opposing parties, and it mattered not to thorn
which party won, for they would reap the same results at public ex
pense regardless of which party they claimed to bleong.
Tho action of tho President in forcing criminal prosecutions
against high official1 and securing the conviction of many of them
has encouraged tho people in their efforts to bring those guilty of
malfeasance in office to justice, and has made the business of
politics to a certain class of politicians less attractive than it wasa
few years ago.
We have had too many of this class of politicians here in the
Territory in the past and even u few are thriving today, as a result,
of weakness on the part of our high officials.

South Sea Secession.
In an admirable treatise the seces
sion movement in Western Australia,
Collier's shows that Hie motive im
pulse came of the rejection of a s.r
vey for a transcontinental raiiroad
by the Federal Senate. The same
cause, says Collier's, threatened the
life of the Dominion of Canada in its
infancy. British Co'umbia, it points
out, had joined the Dominion on the
pledge that the Federal Government
would secure the construction of a
transcontinental railway. The delay
in carrying out this promise so en
raged tho British Columbians that
for years they were on the point of
cutting tho painter. In Australia
the sparse settlements on the west
coast are separated from the eastern
centers of population by a desert
which, for all practical purposes, is
impassable. Western Australia has
an advantage over British Columbia
in hav'ng easy communication with
the easi by sea, but there is a nat
ural desire for something more direct,
It is not surprising, however, that
the other States should hesitate about
undertaking an enterprise of Euch
doubtful profit. .
"If Western Australia," says Col
Tier's, "should insist upon secession,
and should succeed upon carrying it
out, one of the most interesting ex
periments in history would end in
failure. There is no other example
in the world, and there never has
rjeen any other example, of a con
tincntal country without land fron
tiers. The Australian Commonwealth
occupies every inch of its conient,
with no neighbors and no boundary
but the sea. It includes even the
neighboring island of Tasmania. It
occupies the same position tho United
States would occupy if there were
no Canada on the north and no Mexi
co on the South. What that means
to the peaceful development of the
country may be imagined. It should
mean a total absence of foreign com
plications and a chance to devote the
entire mind and strength of the
nation to the solution of domestic
"Tho secession of Western Aus
tralia would not cut very heavily
into tho present population of the
Conimonweath the Slate has only a
quarter of a million people out of
four millions but it would hopelessly
mutilate the fair imagine of a united
continent. With nearly a million
square miles, the State has a third of
the entire area of Australia. Its loss
would deprive tho Commonwealth of
its entire western and large parts of
its northern and southern coests.
Instead of a totul absence of land
frontiers there would be a boundary
twelve hundied miles long, stretching
straight across tha continent and
this, if the already separatist tenden
cies should gain the upper hand,
might be In time the boundary not
between neighboring British colonies,
but between rival nations.
"There has been a peculiar ar
rangement by which goods Irom the
other Australian States have been
subject to duties upon entering West
ern Australia. But this was meant
to be only temporary, tho duties
diminishing on a sliding scale, and
collections were to have ceased on
October 8 of this year, just at the
time when the secession movement
was coming to a head. The dread of
continental free trade may have had
something to do with the desire to
