Tatt 18 BOSS The announcement Thursday hy eahle and wireless
that President Taft had called n nuniher if legislators to aeeount for their
dilatory tactics in matters of legislation lends color to the truth of the
charges of the dailies and other leading puUications that President Taft
is afflicted with growing Roosevelt inn tendencies in usurping the tuvruga
fives of the legislative branch of the government.
Strange to say, while the discussion has culled forth notes of warning
from strict constitutionalists, ami occasional sharp criticism, the general
impression seems to 1h that while it is as wrong for Mr. Taft as it was
for Mr. Roosevelt to interfere with or attempt to usurp the prerogatives
of Congress, the former has, in a large measure, heen forced to go outside
Ids province in this particular.
It is recalled, in his behalf, that he was manifestly indisposed at the
Itcginning to meddle in affairs at the other end of the avenue, and that
it required a great deal of persuasion, and pressure from the outside as
well as from the inside, to induce him to ii.erfere in the tariff discussion.
But pressure was used, and very effectively. It was shown to him that
he had been committed by his party to a scaling down of certain f tin
tariff schedules, and that on the strength of his party's platform pledges
lie had given his personal promise to the country that these reforms
would be carried out. lie "decided to take a hand in the light, ami we
know the rest. We remenilier that he began with a plea and ended with
a demand, and that while he did not accomplish all hesouglrt, he scored
a practical victory over the party leaders.
The theory is now advanced on one side that this success created in
Mr. Taft an appetite for dictatorial power, but this is ovcrlorne by the
well-supported statement on the other side that Mr. Taft has not inter
ferexl in the affairs of congress in a single instance where he has not been
invited, or urged, or actually forced, to do so by the "regulars" or the
"insurgents" or by lioth; and that , sometimes one of these elements,
sometimes the other, and sometimes the two combined, have so shaped
the circumstances and formed the conditions tha he con;! Hoi-sv!
stepping into the arena and '."tossing1' tiie situation.
There apiiefjr? to ie an openly declared or tacitly' conceded admission
inVtfuarters at present that Mr. Taft has taken the reins of his own
party in Congress. As this means the majority, and as the majority
controls, the Inference is that the legislative branch of the government
Will do business in a manner acceptable to the executive branch.

The Kahului postmaster has re
ceived the following clipping from a
Seattle paper which he has tinned
over to us with a request that we
publish the same in the hope that
the relatives of the deceased may
know of his death.
"Dying far from his home find
family in sunny Hawaii, a stranger
in a strange land, the last request
of James Kanekoa, a kanaka who
breathed his last at the city hospi
tal yesterday niornrng, was that
word would be tent to his wife and
little ones. ToA. A. Krarmer,
chief clerk in the department of
health and sanitation, who from
long acquaintance in the Hawaiian
islands, could speak the man's
native tongue, Kanekoa confided a
message of love to his little ones.
Kanekoa had been away from
his home ten years. He came to
the States in the hope of making
sufficient money to bring his family
here, away from the poverty and
hardship which was their lot in
the province of Kula, on the island
"Kanekoa told me he had been
here ten years," said Mr. Braymer.
"He held a job up to a short time
ago at Port Blakeley, where he per
formed common labor at the mill
and sent his small savings back to
his family. He had hoped to save
enough to bring them all to this
"The man was picked up on
Saturday by a policeman, who
found him under a building where
he had crawled. He was deathly
sick and strange to the city and
did not know where to go. I do
not understand how he came here
from the mill unless he was dis
charged because unable to work,
and possibly expected to find some
thing, here. The man had no
money, but I liona to get some Ho

The interest in the Elks' carnival
