WHY NOT ABOLISH CONGRCSS ALTOGETHER?
TTT HE time has come when the House of Representatives represents
nothing but the will of One Man. It has ceased to be of public
utility. Save as it is the recording machine of the President of
the United States, it is an utterly useless body, says the Philadelphia
lo tins low estate has oodrow v llson brought the onc-tune great
House, wherein were expressed the hopes and fears, the wishes and de
sires of a nation's vast citizenship.
No one can have followed the career of the present session without
being impressed by its complete subjugation. The Tariff bill was born
in the secrecy of a committee. It was passed upon by the President,
who persisted in making it his own. It was then sent to a secret cau
cus, where there was great opposition. But a majority of that caucus
dominated the whole, and the minority was forced to submit. The
subsequent consideration of the bill by the House was a mere farce, of
course, since a caucus had determined in advance what should be done
The President has become the legislative branch of the government,
and a majority of the Democratic majority of Congress, acting in cau
cus, is his implement for enacting laws drawn to his order. The Pre
sident and the caucus are all that are needed. We might as well save
the expense of the House, that mere recording machine. Eor that
matter, the Senate is not much else, either. We no longer have legis
lation by a Congress composed of the Senate and the House of Repre
sentatives, but by the President and a syndicate.
THERE are many people who are loath to believe that Arthur
McDuffie has done any crooked work while head of the bureau
of detectives. To charge him with petty graft and petty thefts
of "evidence" in gambling raids is too absurd. The real offenders are,
probably, the very spies and informers who have, at all times, made
the detective office an eyesore. These pimps ferret out certain things
for the Chief and do the real dirty work. Then, in their small minds,
they imagine that they solved a murder or burglary case, when the
Chief suddenly makes an arrest. Their jealousy is evident every time
they are seen to read a newspaper that praises the work of the Chief.
Jealousy and a fear that their own grafting will be shown up, is the
real cause of their attack on McDuffie.
THE exhibition of flying that was given by Tom Gunn, the Chi
nese aviator, was a very successful one, and one that showed the
people of Maui what the possibilities of the great wonder of
heavier than air machines are. "Heavier than air," would seem to be
the wrong term as, when an aeroplane is traveling at a good, sharp
speed, it is supported by the banked up air and is then, surely, lighter
than the atmosphere at that particular moment and place. However,
be that as it may, there is no doubt that Tom Gunn gave a wonderful
exhibition of nerve, and proved that he is the real thing when it comes
The difference between washing your own face in the morning and
going over the way and washing your neighbor's face is the difference
between permitting foreign countries to supply your home market and
supplying it yourself. In one case you go through the day unwashed,
and in the other pass through the days and weeks and months unemployed.
How to raise money: Tax the people first; second, tax the article
imported into the United States. One plan empties the pockets of the
workers, and the other gives them work and wages at home. It does
not seem difficult to choose correctly.
How many workers in the United States are there who can under
stand how they can earn wages in this country on the articles made
abroad and sent in to take the place of their own manufactures?
Maui engineers and contractors are stretching out to the other islands
of the group, and they are now landing contracts on Hawaii and other
places. Maui No Ka Oi!
Well, some of us may live cheaper after Wilson's Tariff bill goes in

A purse of gold in the United States is exchanged for foreign wool,
and when the wool is worn out we have nothing left.
What will it profit the worker in America to gain the markets of the
outside world and lose his own wages?
