Ahout the first thing that Pink
ham, should do when he gets into
omce, would be to investigate Mr.
Gibson's method of running his
departmental affairs. There is evi
dence that Mr. Gibson is inclined
to "even" up on various teachers,
which if really true, unfits him
for the position. He has, belittled
himself in the eyes -of all intelli
gent people in his attitude towards
the principals in denying them of
the consideration which every other
business house in the Territory
grants. We have learned fiom n
most reliable source, that the order
to discontinue the furnishing of
stamped envelopes to principals,
came as the result of some of the
teachers using envelopes unneces
sarily. One case being wherein a
teacher who had at one time been
a principal, but who at the time of
this grave offense, held an assis
tant's position. That this teacher
actually did, with malice and afore
thought, then and there, use one
of the department's stamped en
velopes. That it was one which she
had probably left from the time
when she was principal. This was
given us while in Honolulu, and
by a prominent educator much
more so than the superintendent .-
as the reason no further stationary
is to be furnished. This shows the
calibre of the present incumbent
in office. Is it, then, any wonder,
that the Pinkham administration
should begin with the head of the
educational system? If Mr. Gibson
wishes definite information
as to evidence concerning his par
tiality, he has but to make such de
sires known and he will be cheer
fully accommodated. This paper
is not disposed to discredit any
good work which Mr. Gibson mav
be capable of doing, but neither
will it tolerate any such tom-fool-ery
that marked the administration
of his predecessor.
Ok course it is the custom' to
pay up political debts by unking
wholesale changes with a governor
ship change, but it is not always
to the best interests of the public
at large to do so. For instance, in
the present superintendent of pub
lic works, the Territory has a man
who is accomplishing a great deal
in the way of public improvements,
and to cut such men as he is prov
ing himself to be. off, purely for no
other than political reasons, would
be an act of shortsightedness which
accounts fpr the unsatisfactory
conditions that have made Ho
nolulu the laughing stock of the
Territory. Caldwell is the right
man. in the right place, and it is
to be hoped that Pinkham will not
allow himself to be mislead by a
lot of job-chasing politicians.
With a profit of over thirty
thousand dollars each to its stock
holders, the Hanamattlu Planta
'tion, a closed corporation, it
would seem that the labofer, the
agent responsible for these enor
mous profits, should at least be
given what is due him as an indi
vidual of ordinary circumstances.
However, the postoffice which is
asked for, would amount to a re
venue proposition, while an amuse
ment hall would make for content
ment among the employe'' and the
policeman would afford the needed
protection for the homes, of these
laborers, thus rendering further
Thk definition of a "gink"

of passengers aboard the S. S. Ki
nau.pn its last trip to Kauai, and
after a whispered consultation the
Captain, with a knowing wink and
the attitude ot the wise old owl.
openly declared that a gink, meant
a traveling man, and that ginks,
meant a whole bunch of them in
an attempt to string a sea captain.
The captain was thereupon gently
taken to one side- by an angered
Knight of the Grip and gently let
in on the real definition, which
the captain stated afterwards, in
cluded some sort of a cross between
an owl and a chicken.
Wit are printing in this number,
the first instalment o f the new
tariff law, the conclusion of which
will follow in our next issue. The
second instalment will explain in
detail, the income tax law told in
a clear and concise manner. The
article complete will make good
reading t o preserve for future
reference, as it will contain about
all one will ever wish to know
concerning the new schedule.
Now that the Inter-Island has
made the traveling public pungle
up an extra dollar on the Kauai
liners, it would be well for the
company to spend a little of this
extra revenue in cleaning up the
shore boats. We will not stop at
saving that these boats merely
smell, they simply "stink." There
is certainly no excuse to be given
for such conditions,

In connection with the stuffed
payroll investigation concerning
the road officials on Hawaii, it is
said that the three dead men whose
names appeared on the payroll,
and who received their salaries,
though dead for a number1 of years,
would have escaped publicity, had
not the luna insisted on mcreas
ing the pay of one of the deceased.
Thk new tariff schedule is said
to be the cause of some cf the in
activity or the Inter-Island fleet
but if the truth were known the
real cause lies in the new Hilo
railroad project, the big American
Hawaiian Steamship Co., and the
exorbitant freight rates. The new
tariff has naught to do with it.
It is now claimed that A. V.
Roe, the I. W. W. organizer, who
is at present one of Sheriff Rice's
star boarders, is nothing less than
a nasty detective in the services of
the capitalists with a view of hurt
ing the order, rather than helping
it along. If such is true, there is
little doubt that he is succeeding

"Where are all the Pinkham
boosters?" asked our morning
contemporary, and it came to pass
.that in the afternoon of the same
day, a wireless informed the pub
