Troubles of Politicians In Washington. -
(San Francisco Call.)
THE congressional situation in Washington is chiefly character
ized by a certain melancholy humor. Both sides are so obvious
ly playing for position in the political game that it is difficult to
treat in serious vein the ostensible patriotism which is no better than
cheap politics in a thin disguise.
In this welter of personal ambitions, posing as a form of disinterest
ed attachment to the common good, one figure stands out pre-eminent,
a big man among dwarfs, who takes his steady and unflinching course
for what he believes to be right regardless of the effect it may have on
his personal fortunes. Mr. Taft, in a word, shows up as a really great
and commanding figure, quite untarnished by the petty tricks of poli
tics. The standpatters may rage and the progressives sulk, but the
president stands firm in his shoes.
What is more, Mr. Taft will have his way. He has the broad, com
mon sense of the country behind him and the people are not fooled by
the small politics of the hour. A deputation of political "farmers"
waited on him on Monday with prophecies of ruin for their craft if the
reciprocity agreement with Canada were enacted. He told them that
he would be 'sorry to see the Republican party lose the support of the
agricultural interests, but he did not believe the threat had any back
ing; and this is true.
The real farmers will not suffer, but will be advantaged by recipro

The Kauai-Maui Excursion.
The following letter, received
from the Inter Island people this
week speaks for itself. This is an
excellent chance for Maui people to
take an outing and see the garden
isle. Those who are intending tak
ing this trip should send their pas
sage money to Honolulu at once, or
to Mr. Field, at the Maui Hotel, in
order that they secure, accommoda
tions, as there will be no over
crowding of the boat. The steam
boat people assure everyone who
goes that they, will be properly
taken care of.
Mr. W. H. Field,
