Rights and Within the Territory f Hawaii probably a greater pro
Dutl6. portion of our citizens would le politieal leaders than
can 1)0 found anywhere on earth. An active interest and participation
in the political issues is of vital iiuiortance. There is, however, one criti
cism we would make to the leaders and that is that while all are full
of the "rights of the people," we seldom hear a word aliout their duties.
In striking contrast to the teachings of the average politician is the
work of Judge Kingshury of the Second Circuit Court.
Judge Kingshury never lets an opportunity escajH- to impress upon
the citizens of Maui that they have duties to perform and so far as their
relations with the court is concerned, he sees fliat they do them.
In thanking the grand jury Monday for their strict attention to duty,
Judge Kinghury said : "Just so long as such grand jurors are selected
from the electorate, just so long will crime he discouraged. Any man
who wants favor lieeause of race is a rascal. Any man who favors an
other man lecnuse of race is a rascal. I do' Maine a man for hav
ing race preferences any more than I blame a man for U'ing hungry,
hut I do lilunu him for allowing such preferences to control him.''
All of the great statesmen have I iron true to their convictions of duty.
Anyone of them would have preferred political defeat to Wing time
Lincoln once said. "Let us have faith that right makes might, and
in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it."
Lincoln's was never a path of pleasure.
His path Mas over rugged steps, hut he never faltered, and on the
heights he reached his will ever stand one of the nohlest figures of his
tory. His devotion to duty may well W emulated hy all.
If teachers, preachers, politicians and the press would assist in im
pressing upon the public the fact that they have duties and responsibili
ties as well as rights, we might in time see a vast improvement in con
dititions throughout the territory.
Wailukll's Electric The legislature of 1!M)7 granted to certain citi
Franchlse. zens of Central Maui an electric franchise for
a term of thirty-five years, to operate an electric system for lighting and
power. In January, 1908, the congress of the United States granted an
exclusive franchise to the company composed of the same parties, and it
was Wlieved that Wailuku and Kahului would soon have such an electric
system that is common in much smaller towns all over the mainland.
Every stranger who visus Wailuku and stops overnight comments on
the Itenuty of the place by day and the gloom by night.
There was no time limit set in the franchise granted, hut in all such
cases it is implied that those who receive such a franchise will act in
Neither the legislature nor congress intended for any man or set of
men to get a franchise and then do nothing, and prevent others from
It seems to us that the comyany should either get busy or surrender
its franchise. Wniluku and Kahului need electric lights and power. ,It
is up to those to whom the franchise was given to furnish it.
Burdette the The most sensible, the most practical, the one to W
Preacher. longest remembered, and above nil, the one that will
do more giod than any we ever heard is our estimation of the sermon
of Doctor IJoWrt J. Burdette, delivered in the Wailuku Union Church
on last Sunday evening.
Dr. Burdette is a convincing speaker, who possesses the rare faculty
of Wing able to bring forth a smile from the most sedate or to compel
frivolous to realize the serious side of life.
His sincerity is unquestioned yet through it all peeps the bright sun
beams of wit and humor.
By his sermon of Sunday evening, Doctor I'obert J. Burdette has
won for himself a warm spot in the hearts of many who heard him, and
what is more, he has made the lives of many brighter and better.
