TITHE Senate raidwives and the White House professor who sets
I himself up as "it," are having a hard time to produce the birth
of that Free-Trade kid that will long be known as Wilson's
Wilson and wet nurse Bryan well knew that the only way they could
get that business assassin through either house was to call an early ses
sion and hold the great club of "Public Patronage" over the members
There isn't a man in that Democratic majority that does not know
that the Professor is greatly exceeding his rightful authority when he
absolutely dictates to them what they must do, and none of them dare
tell him to keep in his own sphere and attend to his own business. If
they did so, I hey might as well go over the aisle to the Republican
side, so far as having any chance to get an appointment for any of
their constituents under the wet nurse and his understudy.
Had Congress had a spinal column and made a speedy adjournment,
the offices would have been dispensed before next December, and the
Professor would have lost hi authority over the A and B classes (for
that is what he regards them to be and wholly under his tutelage) and
they could have done their duty to their respective constituents and
the business of the country, as they well know it.
Free-Trade will be the brand every maverick in both Houses will
bear at the hands of Wilson and Bryan.
UKE KAHANAMOKU has done more good in the advertising
JJf line than any of the various organizations that are working on
the proposition of boosting Hawaii. The sporting world is a
large one, and athletes always bring the country they belong to into
the limelight all over the civilized world.
And, besides Duke we have Johnnie Williams, the star pitcher of the
Sacramento baseball team. Johnnie has done his share in the bringing
of the name of Hawaii before the people of the United States. He will
do more, too, in the future, when he goes to the big leagues in the
Then our polo players showed the sportsmen of the mainland that
we are on the map. The work done by the Hawaiian tean was the
talk of the world, and the wonderful ponies that the island players
loaned to the All-American team, are the pride of the States and the
Territory of Hawaii.
The College athletes have, also, done wonderful work and the long
lists of Harvard, Yale and other University men include the names of
many island youths. Hawaii nei produces wonderful athletes and the
old theory that the tropics and semi-tropics weaken athletes is quite
A WHOLE lot of Democrats claim they were misled in regard to
the position of the supporters of the Wilson-Underwood bill.
Among these were representatives of the beet sugar growers of
several states and of the cane growers of Hawaii, Porto Rico and
They based their assertions on the Baltimore platform, with its
pledge of "legislation that will not injure or destroy legitimate indust
ry," and on the assurances said to have been received by Representa
tive Broussard during his visit to Mr. Wilson at Sea Girt On the
effect of them of what they understood to be the Democratic position
and Mr. Wilson's, Jules Godchaux said:
"We cast 50,000 or 60,000 votes for Mr. Wilson and subscribed
money for his campaign on the assurances we thought we had that he
would not favor free sugar."
The truth is that the sugar Tariff controversy is between the refiners
of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, who don't produce any sugar, and
want the duty removed so they can buy imported raw sugar cheaper
and make larger profits on its refining.
EDWARD M. WATSON seems to be the choice of President Wil
son for the position of Governor of Hawaii, and the appoint
ment may be made any day now. With Watson as Governor,
and D. E. Metzger as Territorial Secretary, the Hawaiian Islands will
be in as safe and competent hands as can be imagined as far as a
Democratic administration goes. Both gentlemen are of the right type
and they love their Hawaii nei dearly.
There may be lobbyists in Washington; there probably are, but if
there was ever a case of "stop thief!" it was when President Wilson
called for that investigation for there is not a particle of doubt that
he is the most dangerous lobbyist of them all.
The Terrible Turk seems to be outdone in cruelty by the Bulgarians
and it would be a good thing if the really civilized Powers wiped out
ali the little Kingdoms and introduced twentieth century methods of
A new House will be elected next year, and if the Tariff revisers
fail to reduce the cost of living by that time, without impairing the
means of living, their excuses will not be worth much.
President Wilson evidently wants to be known as the real author of
the Tariff bill. So be it. By their fruits ye shall know them.
Tinkering with the Tariff downward, or for revenue only, will neces
iarily put the Democratic party on the fast traiu to failure.

of the pairs were away off their
real form and that made a big dif
ference in the final totals.
The Puunene annual tennis tour
nament always causes much excite
ment, and the Honolulu players
are very keen on the proposition of
making the Maui trip. Besides the
tennis there is a real good time,
and the visitors always go away
with a feeling that they have had
the best fun of the year on this
In all probability there will also
be a baseball game between the
Puunene outfit and a team from
Honolulu. Al. Castle is working
on tlie proposition, and he will
bring along a nine made up of Col
lege and University players. This
is not quite settled yet, but there is
every prospect that the affair will
be arranged. It would be an ad
ded attraction and the Honolulu
players would find that the Pint
nene nine are up-to-date in the
line of playing ball.

was small enough, and about eigh

trick. However, the solons would
not buy the apparatus, and the

pocket, dug up for the much need
The situation, as explained by
the sheriff, is that the motor-cycle
officer is powerless to take a case
to court and prove speeding, unless
the actual speed can be proven.
'Any lawyer for the defense can
simp.ly wipe the floor with the pro
secutor in such cases," says the
sheriff. "It has come to a pass
when the motor-cycle officer can
not take anybody to court for
speeding, because a conviction is
mpossible. And, in the meantime,
the racing goes on till some car is
wrecked or some one is killed.
'With a proper timing apparatus
two officers can go out any old
time and set their net for the
speeders. The evidence is con
clusive and the speeders will soon
get wise to the fact after they are
soaked by the police court judge a
time or two."
