Clean ' There if every indication that the races at Kahului this year
Races will be exceptionally good and that the officers of the racing
association will do every thing in their power to make the pports at the
track of a class that any of our lest people may attend without having
to apologise for any thing that takes pkce there.
It is authoratively stated that Domingo Ferreira.'who was ruled oft
the track will not he reinstated nor permitted ride on the track.
We do not pretend to know anything about the merits of the case but we
do know that some of our lest people and most active memlters of the
association feel that he should not Ik permuted to ride and we are will
iug to accept their judgement.
Another matter that will doubtless come up at the meeting of the
executive is whether liquor will he permitted to lw sold on the grounds
Although it is admitted that the associaf .1 will lose much by not sell
ing the liquor privilege there is a strong sentiment in favor of cutting out
this in order to eliminate a feature that is objectionable to many.
We believe the association should refuse the liquor stilling privilege on
that day at their grounds and we believe further that in the end they
would profit by this course.
Prlnchot-Ballinger The following editorial from the Advertiser
Struggle seems to clearly sum up the Pinchot-Ballinger
Clamor arising from the battle over the prostrate lody of Speaker Can
non has distracted public attention from the greater battle going on in
comparative silence between the forces of the former chief forester, Gif
ford Pjnchot, and those of the - secretary of the interior, Richard A. Bid
linger. To the country at large it matters little whether Joe Cannon or
someone else be speaker of the house of representatives. The priciple
of the fight is the same, however, as that involved in the Pinchot-Ballinger
controversy, the rights of the people against the corporations. The
one struggle involves the other, but the spectacular combat in the house
detracts more than it should from the one leing carried on in committee
room of the senate.
The proceedings there are not particularly interesting; there is nothing
sensational about them ; only occasionally has there been an episode of
lively interest and occasionally a tilt letween the lawyers, or between
the members of the committee and a witness. Mr. Pinchot is fighting
for a great principle, and, like the crusaders of old, he is carrying him
self with an air of determination that shows his consciousness of right
and duty. On the other hand, Mr. Ballinger is righting for his reputa
tion and the credit of the administration to which he Wlongs, and the
administration memliers of the committee arc doing everything they can
to prevent a verdict of guilty.
Secretary Ballinger does not realize, it would seem from dispatches,
how serious his situation actually is. He is not accused of crime, but he
is accused of neglecting the interests of the government and of refusing
to protect the public domain from speculators who were at one time his
clients and who "represent the grant horde of land grabbers who have
gobbled up already a large portion of the natural resources of this country,
for which they have never given the government any remuneration.
Mr. Ballinger has the sympathy of the oflicial population of Washing
tonat least the ostensible sympathy. Mr. Pinchot has the sympathy
and support of the unofficial public and of all those formerly connected
with the administration of President Roosevelt. .
Nol)ody ever suggested that there is anything wrong aliout Clifford Pin
chot, except that he was guilty of insulwrdination in coming to the de
fense of Glavis when the latter was denounced as a fraud and a liar in
the report of the attorney-generally to congress. Pinchot did not believe
that to le true. He believed that Glavis was an honest man and a faith
ful, conscientious public official, and he wrote a letter to Senator Dolliver
duclaring his faith and defending Glavis, which he .insited should le
printed in the same issue of the Congressional Record that contained Attorney-General
Wickersham's report on the case. Secretary Wilson, his
superior officer, it is said, forbade him to do this, but Pinchot's sense of
duty was stronger than his sense of official propriety. He published his
defense of his friend and was dismissed from the public service for in
subordination. At the present time, the defense is presenting its evidence before the
'committee. . The Pinchot witnesses have probably failed to establish be
yond the straining of legal points any direct lapses from duty on the part
ef Secretary Ballinger, and if President Taft is satisfied with a ''not
proven" verdict, the secretary of the interior will have won out.
Such an admintstration victory would weaken it, however, in the
popular opinion. The public is not as yt convinced of Taft's sulser
viency to the organization, but the trumph of Ballinger over Pinchot,
nless the defense is stronger than the people suppose it will l, will go
far in forming such a conviction.
