Circuit Judge Whitney after a trip
to the Hoys' Industrial School at Waia
lee comments that he "fount! the plant
in excellent condition." That comment
is perfectly corrert. As n "plant,"
as an industrial under taking, the in
stitution is well-conducted, judged by
the outward results of cleanliness,
growing crops, output of products,
etc. Judged by the results of the boys
who are now in durance there, the
conclusions cannot but be different.
The question is whether the territory'
desires the school to turn out excel
lent taro, cane, vegetables and dairy
products, or boys w-ho are better
characters for their experiences there.
What sort of a state of affairs must
exist where a man who was tuspected
of being short in his accounts is al

Territory Wins Tax Test Case.
Dy a decision of the Territorial su
preme court handed down this week,
the territory was awarded its claim to
the right to tax the incomes of foreign
fire insurance companies, on business
done in the territory. The case was
on an appeal of C. Brewer & Com

Governor After Tax Dodgers.
Stating that non-payment of taxes
will be regarded by him as sufficient
reason for refusing to employ or keep

employed by tho territory, Governor
Pinkham has addressed a circular let
ter to the heads of the various terri
torial departments on tho subject
which has caused some little stir in
government circles, inasmuch as ihere

among public employees in the past.

Cupidity May Defeat Aim of Sugar
Selfish cupidity often robs Individ
uals of their reasonable and attain
able desires. This truism seems a
pertinent one of which to remind the
sugar men, who now that they have
a fair chance of having the present
sugar tariff of twenty dollars a ton re
tained by congress are starting into
work for the old rayne-Aldrich sche
dule. Isn't this a ease of where a hn'.f
a loaf would be better than none? The
half loaf, as at present seasoned with
high war prices, is a pretty rich one.
It may be possible under the pressure
of need of tho government for addi
tional revenue to get congress to re
tain the present tariff rate, with very
little opposition from the free trade
exponents. Hut, isn't it possible, once
the sugar men show their cupidity by
asking for a schedule which only two
years ago was declared too high that
the free trade clement will combine
with those opposed to more than one
cent, a pound protection and defeat the
hope and reasonable request for the
retention of the present tariff? Hilo

Punahou To Have Military Training.
After a warm debate last Monday
night, the trustees of Punahou Aca
demy practically decided to Inaugu
rate military instruction into the
school for the coming winter term.
Capt. Edward K. Masse will be In
structor. Some strong opposition was
offered to the plan, a number of speak
ers declaring that they would be com
pelled to take their boys from the
school if it went into effect. Among
these were the Revs. A. A. Ebersole
aand David Carey Peters. Judge Dole
spoke in favor of the military train

Poor Showing For Homesteads On
Figures recently compiled from pub
lic land office records show that al
most all of the homesteaders in the
Kahuku, Kamaee, and Waikaumalo
homestead tracts, on the Island of Ha
waii, have either sold or leased their
lands. Of a total of 34 original owners
of the 1901 acres represented in theBe
tracts, only two still hold and use
their land, and these two use it as
pasture. Twenty-five lots are under
lease to the Hakalau plantation and
fourteen are leased to Japanese who
are growing cane upon it for the Ha
