British Boycott In Hawaii
A vtry ir.t-rrvjtir. story ov-ir.e- frui Honolulu of the application of
he British Kvott to enterpr:- in thes? Islarxis. An American owr.ixl

vir.v ipaT.y owned by American of German parentis. The British con

cf the forv-r iv. which he stated that inasmuch as they had chon to do
bu-iv. -ss the e:::ui? of Gr-it Britain (or worvis to that efect) a
shiptn-r.t of svrar ahvut to be made fr:m India would be stopped
ir. i that they 'the American owi-.td surar plantation) had be n placed
the British blacklist. It is understood that the matter will e taken
v.r wl:h the c. verr.r.ier.t at Wahi:icton without delay.
i It vy e a little early to determine definitely, but it certainly ap
pears that the scheme adopted this year of a bavball team for each of
the military companies has not Iwn a success. It brought a great many
more players into the field, to be sure, but it seems to have been at ti e
expense of baseball, and it has been extremely difficult Xq work up
enthusiasm in the g-amej. If baseball is to be handled by the National
; Guard next season, it would probably be better to have only four teams
, in the league, one for each of the three battalions and one for the hopi
Lakk pay (yesterday) passed off without particular notice on Kauai,
the office in the county building at Lihue being almost alone in observ
ing the holiday. The significance of the day has not yet appealed to
the country precincts, of Hawaii, and we are probably just as well off
that such is the case.

These f-gur. bring concisely ani conclusively to light the fact that
Americans own more of Mexio.i than do the Mexicans themselves 8i4.
Of course it may be argued that this American ownership of Mexioo

is a real menace

final summing up it will probably be found that American financial
ownership of Mexico will have much to do with intervention on a large

Filipinos As Citizens
The decision of the United State district court at Hono
Filipin-.-s resident in Hawaii may bocome American citizens, endowed1
: r:g:.ts ana pnvnegvs cf such, by the simple prxess of!
lathu. open to view a problem of the very near future. There!
is no question, t-ut that, as s-n a they are aware cf the open door be- j
fore them, thousand of Filipinos will apply for citizenship papers and !

will have the right to vote.
Right there comes the c-: int the occasion for serious thought. Hav
ing the franchise the Filipino could, perforce of numbers, practically
control our elections and legislative machinery, provided, of course, tha't
they 'voted t-g-ther. Some cf their friends claim that they would not
do that but would divide between ani work w;'r tV n.V-"- v
gvnetal warfare. j
Again: If the Filipinos in Hawaii are given the full right of citi j
zen-hip they will be at liberty to travel anywhere they please under the
American r!ag. There are no two ways about that. " The ultimate re-'
suit might be, then, that they would depar. ty wholesale for the Orient-;
