THE MAUI NEWS,
FRIDAY, Ar.RIL" 26, 1918.
Facing A New Administration
Col. ClinilcB J, McCarthy's nomina
tion for governor has brought forth a
unanimity of approval unprecedented
in Hawaii's recent politicnl history.
It is the fashion here, whenever
Washington is about to make or
makes an appointment for local office,
to call the appointee everything from
a false alarm to a burglar, wife-boater
and murderer. Protests are shot out
by cable, wireless and the mails
protests to the president, to the
cabinet members, to members of Con
gress and to anyone else who may
have a bit of influence In blocking
Not so with the president's choice
of Hawaii's governor for the next four
years. No sooner was the Star-Bulletin
extra on the street yesterday
with the news of the appointment
than expressions of approval so wide
spread that they were general were
voiced by all factions, parties and in
terests. Even the Advertiser, whose candi
date was Clinton J. Hutchins, hails
the appointment as "popular and gra
tifying" and calls for general support
of the colonel in his administration.
The unsuccessful candidates were
immediate in their congratulations to
the next governor and they, too, wish
ed him success. Particularly grace
ful was the little speech which Mr.
Hutchins made at the Rotary Club in
which he urged that Hawaii get be
hind Col. McCarthy and work with
Col. McCarthy's nomination un
doubtedly will be confirmed, and he
will step into the executive office
within a few weeks. And then will
come the time for all these expres
sions of good will and approval to be
translated into terms of practical ac
tion. Will the Democratic factions drop
their long and bitter fights and join
in helping Col. McCarthy pver the
rough spots of forming his cabinet?
Will they put aside personal animos
ities and spirit of spoilsmen and give
the colonel full swing in building up
the territorial public sen-ice on the
basis of efficiency? Or will they de
mand their political pound of flesh,
insist that their indorsements be fol
lowed, and their candidates be given
political plums? And will they, if the
colonel does not yield, send protests
and complaints to Washington that he
is "throwing down the party", that he
is not "recognizing good Democrats"?
And the Republican factions will
they work with him or against him?
It may be said here that Governor
rinkham often received more and bet
ter support from Republicans in the
legislature than from members of his
own party. Will the Republicans help
the new governor in the legislature or
And the various business interests
of Hawaii what about them? Yes
terday leading businessmen by the
score called personally or by tele
phone to extend to Col McCarthy
their best wishes. Will they put these
good wishes into practice and deal
with the new territorial administra
tion in the spirit of utmost co-operation?
Or will there be efforts at
times to tie the government up and
delay its handling of important public
What about the territorial press?
Will the newspapers give Col. Mc
Carthy a fair chance to make good,
or will there be a persistent knocker
somewhere among them, a persistent
and petty faultfinder, a purveyor of
baseless canards, sneering and slurr
ing day in and day out, venting its
spite and disappointment? Will the
newspapers endeavor to work with
him, to get his point of view, to aid
him in all worthy endeavors, and to
criticise only when criticism becomes
absolutely necessary, and then in a
clean-cut, aboveboard and construc
The Star-Bulletin asks these ques
tions not because they can be answer
ed now, but because they - are ques
tions which ultimately must be an
swered in Col. McCarthy's experience
as governor. They are questions
whose answers will largely determine
the success or failure of the new ad
ministration. The expression of approval heard
everywhere yesterday should be the
keynote for real action. Never in all
Hawaii's history has there been such
need for people and public officials
to work together. Never has there
been such need for territorial unity
We must concentrate our forces on
fighting enmities within. We cannot
afford time nor money nor energy for
fights among ourselves.
Col. McCarthy has every right to
expect the people of this territory to
giVe him ungrudging and practical
support in his administration. Hono

Plans As Developing
For The Big Fair
Honolulu, April 24 A band of 80
to 100 pieces, selected from the mili
ary bands of several Army posts on
Oahu, and from the Royal Hawaiian
and regimental band of the First In
fantry, National Guard, will present
a big musical concert at the Territori
al Pair, Wednesday evening, June 12.
This magnificent musical feature has
been definitely incorporated in the
Fair program by the Army and Navy
All the thousands of Island folk
who hoard the groat massed band in
front of the capitol during the Mid
Pacific Carnival two years ago will
be eager to hear the forthcoming program.
Unlike the former event, so im
pressive in its magnitude and volume
of sound, the Fair concert is to be
given by a selected organization, of
musicians picked from each band to
create a well rounded, perfectly bal
anced band. This is the plan agreed
upon by the leaders, who believe that
in this way the best effect may be
obtained and a result achieved that
will prove more satisfactory both
from the popular and the artistic
As to the matter of more sound, 80
or 100 musicians, seated in front of
the grandstand, with the soft trade
breeze varrying toward the audience
are expected to create all the
musical strength the audience
can desire. The world famous band
of John Thilip Souza, America's
March King, seldom had a greater
number of members than this.
