National Service Done by Lorimer.
'ENATOR Lorimer of Illinois has done the United States a service
that ho never intended, a service he would lie the last to promote
wore he consulted alxmt the matter. His case has supplied an
eloquent and convincing modern instance in support of the election of
United States senators by direct vote of the people. His refusal to resign
office and the absurd whitewashing report on his case by the senate com
mittee on elections have only served to give the matter prominence in its
bearing on the proposed constitutional change in the method of electing
This report elicited a searching discussion on the floor of the senate
that left the committee with-iua leg to stand on. Senator Borah stated
the case in this wise:
From the hour that Mr. Lorimer declared he was a candidate upon
the morning of May 26 until this present hour a stream of corruption
began to flow which has never ceased;
"It has not only entered into the legislature, it has gone into the
courts. It has affected juries, it has broken down lawyers, it has broken
reputations upon its way, and its whole entire course gives evidence of
the combination of well planned and well digested and well prepared
schemes, showing that it was not the result of accident, not the result of
parties coming together through inadvertence or incident, but a drawing
together by reason of some powerful or organizing mind, concealing every
step where it is possible to conceal and covering it most successfully,
until one unmitigated scoundrel, following the same impulses that moved
him when he voted for' money, undertook again to sell himself and reveal
the fact, which brought out Holstlaw, Beckemeyer, Link, Luke and Wil
son, and thereby revealed the entire scheme." , .
A remarkable feature of the debate and its attendant circumstancs
was the persistent, impudent lobbying done in behalf of Lorimer. The
lobby of the senate was daily infested by men making appeals on behalf
of the Illinois senator. Some of them went so far as to threaten political
vengeance on senators who dared expose the corruption in the Illinois
legislature. Although these conditions were notorious in Washington
the strange thing is that nothing was done to discipline or expose these
impudent lobbyists. S. F. Call.
The ranch owners have had their ears close to the ground for Borne
time, and now comes the statement that they aro going to raise the price
of meat. This means of course that the retailer will be obliged to raise
prices to the consumer. Hawaii has been fortunate to escape the squeez
ing methods, so long in vogue on the mainland by the wholesale meat
dealers, and we had hoped that we were to escape altogether. Now,
however; when the people on the mainland have practically allowed the
meat to rot in the storage warehouses rather than to submit longer to
this arbitrary price raising we here in Hawaii aro to get a taste of trust
methods. The proposed raise is a small one, but it is 'the entering of
the wedge, and if wo stand for this wo will lie obliged to stand for more.
We are pleased to see our subscribers arc not slow to take advantage of
the offer we are making of supplying the Daily Star and the News for
$8.75. The Star is;iiow a real newspaper. In addition to its splendid
news and cable service, the editorial column is now the most forceful of
any paper on the islands. This offer can not bo overlooked.
When we get those new electric lights on tho streets, Wailuku will be
put ou the map. Thoso unsightly fences should come down first, how
ever. Its now up to the property owners to make this a real beauty
Bpot. It cannot le done while the fences remain.
It is really too bad the Honolulu board of Supervisors cannot persuade
Wilson to get out. They could then get down to business. If Wilson
sticks, Honolulu is liable to have a lot of new faces in the crazy house
before the term is over.
There is a lot of talk in Honolulu among the politicians about raising
the taxes. If they would set themselves to giving us better government
amf not so much of it, thcro would be no need of increased taxation.
The Hilo Tribune calls the Maui delegation irresponsible. If men like
Cooke and Tavares aro irresponsible, the Lord help the balance of the
The Human Face.
(By William Ordway Partridge.)
THE human face have you e'er mused and sighed
Upon its power, this little round from brow to chin?
Tho thumb and fingers span it have you tried
To Bound its depths, its love to lose or win?
The eyes that look at you with Heaven's own light,
That quicken to tho highest call, or woo
To Hell and all forgetfulness of right,
The eyes so potent with the hearts that buc!
The human face these lips that tell and feel
And that the world can hold from fire to pole;
Their kiss can change a kingdom, and the weal
Of human destiny is there they own tho soul ;
We shall be judged by eyes and mouth at last,
Whatever life may come whatever life is passed.
Lodge Maui Installs
At the stated meeting of Lodge
Maui No. 984 A. F. A A. M. held
in the Masonic Temple, Kahului
last Saturday evening, the office
bearers elect, for the Masonic year
ending 27th December 1911, were
duly installed into their Beveral
offices. This ceremony, in the
usual course of events, should 'have
taken place on the 27th' December
last, and it had been the intention
that the function should be a public
one, for the first time in the history
of this Lodge. Public health
measures intervened however, not
only to postpone tho ceremony it
self but also to alter the plan of it
being public. It is hoped that at
some futuro time the wishes of the
memlHTS and their friends in this
matter may find consummation.
Brother J. N. S. Williams the re
tiring Master of Lodge Maui, assist
ed by the Past Masters of the
Lodge, performed the ceremony

Upon the conclusion of the cere
mony the new Master, after thank
ing the Installing Officer for his
efficient services as such and to the
Lodge as Master for tho past year,

voicing in a pleasing manner the
sentiments of the members towards
the. retiring Master, presented to
Bro. J. N. S. Williams a very hand

Officers, the same measure of Jiar
mony and good-will that had at
tended his incumbency. -

ness and degree work, the members
