Thwing Goes Baalams Ass
Thwing of Honolulu has again
succeeded in getting into print. This
time ho has done so by making
charges against U. S. District At
torney Breckons. The charges arc
so vediculous that they are being
printed. If they were to stand
strictly on their merit they would
not be accepted by the yellowest
journal of China town .
That our readers may know how
foolish the charges nre we print the
following taken from the Bulletin
and below wc give Mr. Breckons
reply to questions on the subject.
I firmly believe that the know
ledge of every one of those twenty
names, attached to the paper pre
sented to the Governor, could not
have reached Mr. Breckons except
from the Governor's oflice. Whether
Mi!. Breckons now has that infor
mation or not, does not especially
concern me. I was informed that
he had secured it. If he docs not
have this information the rumor of
a "leak" in th'e Governor's olliee is
certainly unfounded. I did not start
the rumor. But it is a question that
concerns the Governor's own staff.
The Secretary, Hon. Mott-Smith,
told me yesterday, that he had not
askc,d Mr. Breckons if he knew those
twenty names. I saw Mr. Lightfoot
this morning, and he said again that
Mr. Breckons did say to him that
he (Breckons) knew that there were
twenty-names, and knew who they
were. It may be true or not that
Mr. Breckons knows these twenty

the person through whom he secured

United States District Attorney
Breckons was this morning trying
to trace up the "serious charges"
that have been made against him by
Thwing. The fact that Breckons
entered the Commissioner's Court
smoking a cigarette and without his
coat has been labeled "Disgraceful,"
when everyone knows that very few
of the usual Court formalities are
observed before the Commissioner.
Another of the monstrous charges
lies in the fact that Breckons, it is
alleged, had $13,000 in the bank at
o ic time',
"I wish it had been true," said
Breckons this morning.
Thwing seems to be trying to
prove that Breckons is a bloated
millionaire who, has accumulated
vast sums through the power of his

Wailuku Sugar Company
The Evening Bulletin of Septem
ber 1st has the following:
The old fight between the Wailu
ku Sugar Co. and the Territory
about the waters from lao valley,'
which are being used to supply the
towns of Wailuku and Kahului, has
come to a head by the service of an
injunction on Superintendent of
Public Works Marston Campbell
and W. E. Bal, who has charge of
the Wailuku water works.
The water from this valley has
long been a source of dispute, the
plantation claiming that the Terri
tory has a right only to 20,000 gal
lons a day through the ownership
of certain lands, while the Territory,
on the other hand claims to have a
right to a very much larger amount
and has, as a matter of fact, been
using several hundred thosaunds of
gallons a day in its service in Wai
luku and Kahului.
The bill for the injunction is the
result of action taken on the part of
the Territory towards extending its
water service, and it is prayed that
a perpetual injuction issue prevent
ing the Territory from taking more
than 20,000 gallons a day of these
waters, and also that a temporary
injunction issue preventing the gov
ernment from enlarging its pipes to
Kahului and from extending its ser
vice to new customers.
The Territorial ollicials are quite
satisfied with the turn which things
have taken, as it is anticipated that
now this old question which has
been a source of trouble for years,
will be finally decided.

When told that Mr. Thwing (md
said that the only thing that would
clear up the atmosphere would be
for him to tell where he got the in
formation regarding the twenty
names, 'Mr. Breckons stated em
It is none of his business,
and I will tell him so," said the
United States District Attorney.
"Mr. Thwing would like to know
whether or not you really have the
names," said the reporter.
' 'That also is none of his bus
iness," replied Breckons.
Will you tell the Governor that
your information did not come from

Editorial Comment by Iio
A cable from Washington that
the Schroder Board had recom
mended the repeal of the Organic
ct and the govcrnmet of'the Terri
tory by a commission brought
forth editorial comment from the
leading Honolulu Papers that will
be read with interest as there is
much in them for thoughtful con
sideration. The Hawaiian Star
has the two following edi'orinis.
RAPID JAFANIZATION OF HA
The local population statistics
published in The Star last night
make a very remarkable, even
startling, showing. A glance at
tho table shows that the .lananiz-
ing"of the Hawaiian Islands is pro
ceeding at a rate that makes talk
of Americanizing sound ridiculous.
There are various more 'or less
dreamy plans and hopes of settling
the lands with ; Americans, but
nothing practical has develoned
ilong tnis line in ten years of talk,
while the birth statistics for a year
past show 2415 Japanese born in
Hawaii and 120 Americans! These
Japanese born will grow up with
the right of citizenship, the right
to vote. The tigures the the cul
mination . of several years of in
crease by leaps and bounds in Jap-
inese births here. The growing
generation is enough ti vital J v
affect our politics. Add the births
of the year just ended, and it is
easily seen that in about twenty
years, unless some different tide of
immigration sets in, the birth
percentages can hardly change
otherwise, Hawaii will be thorou
ghly Japanese. Most people here
realized that there was a greater
increase among Japanese than any
other race, but who realized that
the proportion of births in a year
was 244f Japanese to 126 Ameri
cans, b4 llawauans, ol) British
37 Germans and 088 Chinese, "91
PortugUf.e, and a few Spanianb
and Porto Ricans?
The figures, of course, speak for
a peaceful, industrial conquest of
the islands by Japanese. Political
ly, Hawaii will always be Ameri
can. Ihe Hag will 11 y hero and
the forts and naval station will

But the public lands, under a con
tinuance of this sort of birth late,

and inevitably their competition
will displace white American-- in
internal commerce and mercantile
pursuits. Tl has come to I e fairly
recognized nowadays (hat the
white American, laborer or mer
chant, cannot compete with orien
tals on the same ground.
The table shows simply that the
Americanization policy here is, so
far, year by ytar im-rc isingly a
It is, not at nil improbable thai
the Sehroeder Hoard came to the
conclusion, in view of the grow
ing alien preponderance of popula
tion here, that the islands should
bo deprived of their political in
tegrity, nnd of local self-govein-ment.
'I he Hoard looked at the
matter simply as a proposition of
strategy, regarding Hawaii as
nothing but a military and naval
pot. Congress would take a broad
er view ami would .bo vory reluc

self-government given them. 'Vet

HAWAII'S JAPANESE CHILD
1 he oasis trom which the pro

sion are working is the alleged
threat, that the Japanese children
who are growing up in the Terri
tory and many accept the privilege

the electorate, get all the oilices,
and shape legislation antagonistic
to American interests.
Since Hawaii contains such a
predominance of Japanese biborei s,
it is easy for anyone who bus not
the statistics at hand to swallow
the bait whole. And those work
ing up a campaign to defeat Ameri
can government in Hawaii find
not a few leady to believe them.
The statistics of the last census
show that the Japanese residents

over two-fifths of Hawaii's popula
Hon. Since 1!)()0 tho proportion

The school statistic of tho very

children make up about oni,-(ifth
the total attendance in the public

children who grow up under Airieri

to accept the duties of citizenship,

which they wero educated, we
