hbo got it. When Maui wanted one,
i-.h's got it. but. Kauai may not have
one, because the Honolulu Harbor

a tiny babe, or a Honolulu what-lH-it
hhould be drowned coming aHhore in a
bumboat? What do they care? Their
H.alary Im corning up and their grub lh

public may go to the name destination
that Hilly .Sunday says- the hypocriten
are bound for. Ir. that the idea? And
should It prevail?

Inasmuch as the Filipinos proved to
be such remarkable fighters during the
Spanish war, it would heem to be a
wise move to impress a million or two
of th'-m into service. Whether the
United Stales could do that under the
policy adopted In dealing with the Fil
ipinos, we are not advised. Hut one
difficulty with that scheme would be
that the Filipinos as a people do not
readily adapt themselves to the Amer
ican method of fighting, and it would
rc-'iuire considerable time to put thern
in proper condition to go to the front

RESCUE THE PERISHING
We have all heard of "stealing the
livery of Heaven to serve the devil
in," but there have been fewer in
stances of the apt application of the
term than in the case of one Dinah,
a Hawaiian woman of Honolulu, who
has been wearing a soldier's uniform,
in order that she might parade around
the Htrcets at night in the pursuit of
her dishonorable business, without
being held up by minions of the law.
Hut why send such a woman to jail?
It would be- far wiser to place her
under the care and instruction of the
Salvation Army Kescue Home, where
she would receive motherly advice,
kind treatment, and a chance to re
form. The object of the law should
be to uplift, not to cast down.
The government probably has use
for all of its aeroplanes, just at this
time, but after the war, what is the
matter with having the mails deliver
ed between the various, islands by
aeroplane? Nothing at all. With a
high imwer' d machine, we could get
mall from Honolulu- In less than un
hour. This will be brought about with
in a few years, and no one need be
surprised If iome of those Honolulu
girls drive some of the machines. The
Honolulu papers seem to intimate that
they can lly as high and as fast as
Th'-ie is now a law against the
wearing of an army uniform by civil
ians. A kamaaina at Honolulu went
iwlnging along King street 11 few day
ago smoking a big cigar with the air of
a i.lnjr. when a soldier Hiiddenly point
ed a bayonet at him mid marched him
nlf to heail(ii:u ters because he wore
a shirt which i-eeiiied lo belong lo a
Hiildier'n uniform. However, it prov
ed to be another lextur". The citizen
is now afraid to walk up King street
wiili a pair of brown hIioch on, or 11
pair of leather leggings.
The fact that John 'I'. Hums, who
was 1'iirnn-i ly Consul (joncral In New
York, together with a party of other
prominent Mexicans, Including an
Admiral and a (ieiieral, ant in Home
lulu on their way to Japan has a very
sinister appearance. If they nm not
on Uu ii way to Japan with a view of
plotting against the I'nitcd Slates,
they ought to uie appearances for
lihi I. Honolulu people are ulways
holding up Hiimeboily. Why didn't
they hold up that crowd?

A table from Washington announces
thi-t Filipinos with their f.rst papers
cannot claim exemption from the
draft. That's a new one. A man is
not a citizen until he has completed
the legal process whereby he acquires
that status. Every subject of a for
eign country remains such until he
becomes the subject of some other
country. It is a well established prin
ciple of law that a Hritish subject, for
Instance, who has filed his first papers
to become a citizen of the United
States, is still a subject of Great
britain. and subject to the orders of
his sovereign. He is also entitled to
the protection of the british flag.

The Honolulu Advertiser refers to
the report which the Hawaiian- Am
erican steamship company has just
made to its stockholders, and calls
attention to the special year-end dis
bursement tfl the stockholders of ti-'j
a share. With the six other special
dividends, and the regular dividend of
f 10, the Company paid to the htock
holders during the past year, a total
of 4'.'5. According to its own report,
it had remaining in the treasury, aft-r
having paid these dfcidends, cash se
curities amounting to $10,Ou0.0O'j.
That must be more than the Adver

leaves a very unpleasant impression.

woman nulTrage and kindred subjects

Notwithstanding this, the question is
pressing for a solution, and three na
tional associations are openly cam
paigning for votes in behalf of women.
I low-ever, a ruler who has passively
stood by and seen women murdered
by the Turks, can hardly be expected
to look with toleration upon any
movement which would result in al
lowing tho women to vote. He knows
where he would go, if the women had
Legalized plural marriages, with

Australia must be pretty well up to
date She is now planning for the
further development ''' th! agricultur
al rc-.-ourc-s af that country after the
war shall have ended. To that end
the government has sent out an agent
E. P. Richardson, who is agricultural
superintendent of the Victoria depart
ment of agriculture, on a six-months'
tour of the Unit'-d States, with a view
of obtaining information regarding the
newest and latest methods. Hawaii
could well afford to do likewise. Some
practical agriculturist, with initiative,
should be sent through the farming
sections of the states, and Invested
with authority to introduce newer and
better methods in Hawaii. He should
also be authorized to banish from the
land every pessimist who interfered
with plans for a better Hawaii. For
when a man comes from the Greater
East with a little knowledge in his
head, the f.rst thing he hears in Ha
waii is: "It can't be done."
The Honolulu Star-bulletin has in
vented a new word. It says: "The
man who talk prohibition on the
street, and 'pu'.-s one across' at home,
may be said to be practising camel
Rage." A camel, by the way, is an
animal which can drink enough in one
day to last seven. We hope there arc
none of those in Honolulu, which is a
very dry, moral town.
Some of the married men who have
been in the trenches twenty years,
are hoping that after the war is over,
the good wife will be in sufficient prac
tise so she can sew a shirt, knit a
scarf, or mend a pair of brecehe for
the man she boards with. Sister Su
sie might sew a silken shirt for her
husband, once in a while.
