SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 10. 1910
The Direct Primary.
AG AIN last week was the crying need of a Direct Primary Law
for this Territory forced home upon the voters. Two years ago
the Republican Party leaders pledged themselves in favor of such a
law, but the agitation died out after the Conventions had met and
nominated men for the different offices. This year we heur on every
hand that a primary law is what we need, but why cannot someone come
forth strong enough to father such a schetnej and carry it to a success
ful issue before the next Legislature.
We need such a law, but it must be one strong enough to withstand
the attacks of the gangsters whose power will be gone, and of the Social
ists who discard any form of Primary law as not being in accord
with their particular code of ethics. We need a law th-t will put up the
bars for all time aeainst tranirsters who obtl'Ct to the people's right to
manage the affairs of their political parties free from machine domina
tion. There is no doubt that the carrying through the Legislature of
such a law would be hailed with delight by the friends of decent politics
throughout the Territory.
California is at laUt to be released from the grip of that giant octupus
the Southern Pacific. The two things which have to do with this delivery,
no doubt will leave a lasting impressing on the development of the State.
The Direct Primary law for which the better element - throughout the
Slate fought for three years, was no doubt largely responsible for the
nomination of Johnson for Governor. Johnson is a shrewd lawyer, a
fearless fighter, and if elected will no doubt make things warm for any
scheeniing corporation. The , second reason is the completion of the
Western Pacific Railroad. For years the Southern Pacific has held the
State of California in the hollow of its hand. It was passed about as a
pawn to its henchmen to do with as they pleased. Things will be chang
ed now, and the new road will open up new territory and greatly enhance
the value of territory already opened. The Hawaiian islands cannot help
to reap benefits both directly and indirectly. The Pacific Mail which is
the tail to the Southern Pacific Kite, will be obliged to give us more con
sideration as they no longer control the outlet from the coast, and any ad
vantages gained, or development of the States on the Pacific Seaboard is
of vital importance to the commercial welfare of these islands.
There Is Nothing Better Than the Best

spending money on typewriters.
The News heartily endorses the sentiment of the communication from
W. L. Maples. Every county should be prepared to look after the indi
gent sick. The supplying of a free dispensary and medical treatment is
one of the first things that should be considered when making.up the
estimates of yearly expense for running the county. Even suppose every
community does want a dispensary, they don't get it. The County needs
one and don't get it, so what chance have the individual districts.
s That Uul. Kooseveit lias been turned down Dy ine itcpuDiican macn o
politicians in his home State should not be surprising. It is well kr '.n
that Mr. Roosevelt has never been in harmony with the machine politi
cians of New York State since the time when he was Chairman of the
Police Board. He beat the machine then, has beaten it ever since, and
it - will be ; interesting to note what he does to men of the Barnes' ilk
when he once gets started this time. ,
With Judge Kingsbury in Honolulu, Judge Kakani a delegate to the
Territorial Convention, and the vacancy in the Lahaina District Court,
caused by the death of Judge Rodgers, it would be pretty hard to secure
justice in the County, should anyone be in need of it.
A number of candidates, it is rumored, are considering the idea of
running for election on an Independent ticket. Wires are being laid to
that end, it is said, but it may be only a plan for a move on the Con
vention which will force the nomination in their direction.
When a man with the reputation of Gov. Haskell calls Roosevelt
dangerous, the people can rest assured he is dangerous for Haskell.

Skernai Is Being Exposed as a Ward
Politlciai, aad Is Wisely Quiet
On occasion Vice President Sher
man ceases to lie the "Sunny Jim"
of political legend, says the San
Francisco, Call. He does not live
up to his reputation when tried in
the limelight, which shines equally
:i the just and the unjust. Indeed ,
ne does not enjoy the light and lapses
into heedless profanity when it is
turned on to illuminate the wind
ings of his somewhat devious course.
It is not surprising that Mr.
Sherman should feel weary of the
sort of publicity he has earned in
the last month. Finding himself
publicly nailed to the mast by Mr.
Taft as a partner in a paltry con
spiracy to break up the Republican
party in New York State, he very
naturally courts concealment for
his further'efforts. He would like
to, read the insurgents out of the
Republican party. So he said to a
select gathering of the Mercantile
club of St. Louis, but he did not
want it mentioned outside, nor
would he say it aloud. Mr. Sher
man has had all the publicity he
wants for the present.
Sherman can not read anybody
out of the party. His attempt to
do so is merely a piece of impu
dence.' He would be better em
ployed answering, if he can, the
grave, imputations on his honor
conveyed in Mr. Taft's open letter,
or if he fears, as well he might, to
enter into controversy with the
chief executive, he may address
himself to the task of replying to
the charges made by Assemblyman
Marvin Hart of his own State and
his own town, who said in a public
way at Utica, N. Y. :
We have read much lately about
the threatened break between the
president and former president. I
want to tell you. and I have
grounds for my opinion, that I
believe there is absolutely no truth
in the tstory. Hut I do believe that
there has been a base attempt to
create the impression that such a
break existed, and that with such
attempt Barnes and Woodruff and
Ward have beeii identified. I assert
that Mr- Sherman knew full well
that it was Mr. Taft's wish that no
Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Ganuon now
occupy the house where Senator Hay Sei
dell formerly resided.

The following schedule will go into effect July 1st, 1909.
move lie made toward choosing a
temporary chairman without the
fullest consultation with Mr. Roose
velt. A telegram from Mr. Taft to
Mr. Sherman to this effect appears
to have been suppressed, for noth
ing has been heard of it.
I ask Mr. Sherman if it is not
true that, in spite of knowing that
Mr. Roosevelt had shown a willing
ness to act as temporary chairman
and in the face of Mr. Taft's tele
gram, he personally solicited votes
for himself as temporary chairman
cm Monday night in New York
city? Mr. Sherman, by lending
himself to this act of pettiest poli
tics and by insisting upon holding
the appointment as convention
chairman, if he can hold it, has
allied himself openly with the
Woodruff-Barnes element, and has
threatened the disruption of the
party in the State.
When Mr. Sherman was asked to
reply te this charge of suppressing
a telegram from Mr. Taft he had
nothing to say. He is not courting
any publicity for the present.
