Now Years Reflections Upon tho Sail
Sad tlnlutorshlp Aronnd Round.
Five times the door of the sacred
grass hut fane in which the Tki-
hunk editorial snicker snee scoops
the scoops and loops the loops has
been profaned. Withfn five months,
this sacred portal which opens to
ward the rising sun and the sea, has
been darkened by five towering
forms clothed in the robes of indign
ation. Upon each brow hovered
Olympusclouds and from eagle eyes,
forked lightning darted ominous
flames. Fivetitnesin tones that would
melt brass and paralyze a marble
statue the fell words "Where is the
editor," have reverberated along
the roof pole of our sanctuun reach
ing the editorial tympanum in the
dark corner, where that factotum
sat trembling by his oil lamp, his
bony fingers clutching a frayed
goose quill, with which lie was
wont to inscribe vitriolic diatribes
against his fellow men.
"Where is the Editor?"
The question repeated twice
usually serves to bring the editor
from his dark corner into the
presence of a caller.
Then comes a torrent of ques
tions. Did you write this article?
Arc you responsible for this insult?
Are you allowing my enemies to
edit this paper? Did Groccryman
Smith crack a pun over the head of
of Groccryman Drown? Did Par
son Jones poke fun at a second edi
tion of Dill Nye ? Did my ancient
enemy creep into your fingers and
inspire that stick of silly rot which
haunts my character like a j'im
jams dream ?
"Please go 111 peace and let me
live," the editor has said, now five
times. "No, I don't write things
for this paper," the editor has been
compelled to admit on these five
occasions. "We have a Japanese
yard boy who does all the writing.
He writes jokes on the American
F'agle and pokes fun at Judge little,
lie has a story in incubation now
that involves Captain Iake and his
running mate Mr. Overend. The
same yard boy is at work on a three
act comic opera founded oh scenes
at a business meeting of the Cotil
lion Club and a german ball. The
yard boy also has quite a collection
of charming lid bits, monologue
and dialogue, which bring into play
the exquisite side of half the people
iu the public eye on this Island."
The yard boy is more tyrannical
than our loathesotne contemporary
which wastes so much time iu
drawing the line at personalities
and in measuring the size of adver
tisements in the Tki hunk. The
yard boy comes and to the editor
he says, "this must go." It goes,
and the editor hunts up docking
ton, the undertaker to arrange for
the grim but necessary lites.
I.ockington has been disappointed
Now, upon reflection it occurs to
the writer that the little gem village
of Hilo is more cosmopolitan in the
make up of its population than any
other village iu America. Under
the wide spread wings of the egotis
tical American Eagle, wc have
here, people from the Arctic ice
floes to the sun baked latitudes of
the tropicest tropics. They come
from Scotland, England, The Col
onies, Canada, America, Germany,
Spain, Portugrjl, France, .Switzer
land, Porto Rico, Japan, China,
Italy and Honolulu. Iu these
countries, the press knows every
degree of censorship from the pistol
shot in Texas to the throtling
statutes against "lese majeste" iu
the German Emperor's code. The
censorship iu some of the I.utin
countries consists iu the ignorance
of the people, which is more effec
tive iu closing the news paper shops,
than either "lese majeste" in
Europe or derringers iu Texas and
Arizona. Iu Honolulu a country
to which Hilo is bound by ties of
contiguity and sparse few interests
in common, there is no news paper
censorship. Honolulu has been
iMlncntfil in this rcmu-nt fnr IipvihhU
I , , r ., . .-...'
the dreams of the most optimistic
'newspaper nieii who ever wrote'
iu terror at Ililo, iu Texas or iu (
I Germany. Iu Hqiiolulu names nrc
j permissable iu the columns of a I
newspaper. If the wife of John .
Doe gives birth tp n child, usually I
names of both parents, if they are
known, are published in the news
papers. If there are troubles be
tween young people who arc en
gaged to be married, they usually
find their way into the Advertiser.
If anything crooked happens any
where, the Independent tells the
people about it. The papers go a
hot pace over there and libel suits
have gone out of date
Marshal wrought prodgies in the
rclorm movement which brought
Honolulu to its present high plane
of civilization on the subject of
what should appear iu tlie news
papers. He has finished his task
and will soon leave for the Manila
to continue his life work of
reform. His failure to come to
Ililo and minister to the needs of
her people, is a great loss. The
calamity is wellnigh irreparable.
The job of "breaking this com
munity in," so that it will receive
with a smile, direct, positive, clean,
fearless, good ualurcd, wholesome,
American, impartial and grown up
newspaper stuff is a task iu which
we would fain call to our aid the
herculean brain, and the silver
lance of a Volcano Marshal.
Dut he is going away. The yard
boy too, talks of returning tojapan.
The out look is gloomy. It does
seem that for another decade at
least, the stuff in Ililo newspapers
must continue to be sugar-tit
pabulum for sucking babes and
medicated powder for the touch
tender skins of Different infants.
"When I run dead and gone,"
said Joe Chamberlain iu a speech to
a vast audience of Dritishers;
"When 1 ajn dead and gone, this
great empire will live on; when I
am forgotten, the Empire's grand
mission in the earth will proceed ,
"Dut what if you live?" inter
rupted a cruel listener.
All persons knowing themselves to be
indebted to the late firm of Wise &
Nickeus are requested to call and settle

claims against said firm are requested to
