The President was like the psalmist who said in his haste, "All men
are liars." No doubt he feels that he spoke in haste himself when he
broke out about the insidious and industrious lobby. Mr, Wilson is a
little bit inclined to fall for his own facility for rhetoric and he hates to
lose the utterance of a clever phrase by lack of facts to support it or to
On the whole, the reaction against such opinions is not good for the

TIIK nomination of L. K. I'inknam as Governor of Hawaii is a
Krcat surprise to everyone in these islands. He was not serious
ly considered 1y anyone, and those who knew that for years he
has been away from the islands, cannot imagine how he is eligible for
the high office the President has given him.
And, to most people, I'inkham lias always ranked as a Republican.
At least he held various offices tinder the Republican administration,
and th it was thought to be proof of his political faith. Now, he evi
dently is a Democratic, for how, otherwise, would Wilson nominate
If a Republican governor was needed, there were plenty of good
men available, rinkham may do well as governor, but some one else
more touch with the affairs of the islands, and more in sympathy with
our struggle for existence would have been a better choice.
IT is a strange state of affairs when a County Ordinance cannot be
enforced on account of the most vital portion of it being found miss
ing. It lias been discovered that the ordinance relating to speed
limits for automobiles is useless on account of their being no town or
country limits defined. The supervisors went ahead and made a law
that the speed within town limits should not exceed fifteen miles, and
in the country districts, twenty-five miles an hour. Now, after nine
teen penal summons have been served on speeders, it is found that
there is no chance of a conviction in any one of the cases. It is up to
the supervisors to get very busy on the jump and stop the broad smile
that is to be seen on everybody's face.
THERE is an immense amount of crass ignorance exhibited some
times by Honolulu people who should know better. We refer to
subordinates in various transportation companies and even to
"information bureaus" (?) in Honolulu. It has come to our knowl
edge, within the last few days, that in one instance for sure, a much
traveled tourist, who hails from the old world, went with a party to a
certain office and inquired about the possibilities of travel on Maui.
Instead of being given information about this island, and a general
description of the beauties cf the place, there was nothing but a shrug
of the shoulders and a "guess" that it was rather tackling a tough pro
position. The volcano trip was recommended as a fine one, and the
news was conveyed that perfect comfort was certain for the whole of
When it is remembered that The Maui Hotel Company, at its own
expense, issued a most comprehensive booklet containing information
on the very subject inquired about by the tourist, it seems strange that
the understrappers of the Honolulu concern had not been instructed to
hand out the Maui pamphlets. On account of the lack of information
about Maui, eight people went to the Volcano and only one came to do
the Haleakala trip. This sort of thing should be stopped.
THE Democratic Tariff smashers have been fond of crying with
parrot-like insistence that with the removal of the duty on any
particular commodity the price of the article to the consumer is
certain to be reduced. Now along conies Senator Thornton, of Louis
iana, with the statement that the plan for ultimate free sugar in the
Underwood bill will put the entire control of the sugar industry of the
United States in the hands of the big refiners. He says that they are
seeking the removal of the Tariff in order to destroy the domestic sugar
industry, and to remove the only competition from which they have
anything to fear.
In other words, the Tariff smashers are going to sacrifice fifty mil
lion dollars' worth of revenue without any corresponding benefit to the
people. Is it any wonder that the representatives of the sugar-produc
ing States are up in arms? Senator Thornton says that the price of
sugar, instead of being lowered, will be increased. If this statement is
to be accepted, the action of the tariff smashers will strike the man on
the street as rank stupidity.
ERRIBLE LOI5HY," or no lobby, President Wilson will
probably find some difficulty in suppressing the first law of
nature that of self preservation. If any American manu
facturer learns that the Tariff legislation is proposed which will give
the business he is doing, to some European cousin, he will probably
make eveiy honorable effort to prevent it. If he does not, he is un
worthy ot tile prouil title ot American citizen. It is a duty lie owes
not only to himself and those immediately dependent upon him. but to
the hundreds and perhaps thousands of honest men and women in his
employ who ask for the privilege of earning a good living for them
selves and children. If Senator Hollis and others like him are sosolici
tous of the American workman that they want Europeans to do all the
work, it will be duly appreciated if they will provide some means
whereby their own countrymen can be provided with three square
meals a day, and a suit of clothes occasionally. By Ion g years of prac
tice, labor has become a pleasant necessity.
We wonder where this lobbying business is going to end? If all who
use their influence among the members of the Senate and House of
Representatives to secure legislation are to be termed lobbyists, then
even the President must be classed as one of those against whom he so
strongly inveighs. President Wilson, not content to tell senators and
congressmen of the benefits of Free-Trade, as he sees it, went so far as to
take the rostrum and sagely inform the joint session of the importance
Here is something every wage earner in the country should give
serious consideration. When Protection is wiped off the books manu
facturers of everywhere can ship their goods here. Then our mills will
close, our American mill and factory men will be out of employment.
Then suppose prices will be cheaper, of what use will it be to the con
sumer who is unemployed and therefore unable to purchase at any price?
But when American competition is gone the foreigner and the importer
will see that prices are not lower than before.
(We wonder if the blood and thunder moving pictures that are some
times shown in the theaters have anything to do with the outbreak of
crime on Maui. The use of the gun is too free altogether, and the fact
is that murder and suicide is greatly on the increase. To a weak
mind, the suggestions of ' wiping out" people by the murder route,
may have come from pictures that unfortunates have seen at some show.

A lobby is a very insidious institution in the estimation of President
Wilson when it tries to prevent legislation that will utterly ruin the
sugar producing industry of this country, but it is a perfectly legiti
mate stroke of business for the Sugar Trust to lobby for free sugar,
which will greatly enhance it profits.
Injure or destroy the wool-raising business, and sheep will disappear.
That will result in a greater scarcity of food and run up prices. Food
is supposed to be more important than raiment to most people. But
this makes no difference to the Democratic party.
