THE ANTHRACITE STRIKE.
The anthracite coal strike in
Pennsylvania overtowers all othqr
questions in the public eye at pres
ent. Its settlement involves issues
which are at the heart of the latter
day battles between labor and capi
tal. Its long drawn out .Juration
has entailed untold losses both to
mine owners and laborers as well
as hardship and misery to millions
who depend upon coal to keep their
bodies warm and to cook the food
they eat. The anthracite strike
has called together as contending
giants the shrewdest and most
powerful capitalistic magnates on
the one hand and the Napoleonic
captains of labor on the other. The
vital necessities of millions of peo
ple and their clamor for relief has
led the highest official representa
tives of states and nation to ap
proach the industrial battlefield,
with the hope of reconciling the
belligerents with suggestions of
compromise and mediation. The
President has appealed to the mag
nates to make suggested conces
sions, and has been met with re
fusal thrice over. He has appealed
to Mitchell and the labor leaders to
make suggested concessions and
has been met with refusal,
The laws and the constitution of
the United States have conferred
upon no official such autocratic
power as would be necessary to con
stitute him a legal arbiter in this in
dustrial war a war that affects the
wellbeing of more families than any
war since the rebellion.
Stripped of every minor detail
and incident, the basic principle at
issue is one in which the enlight
ened opinion of America must be
on the side of the laboring men.
Labor is demanding a right to com
bine a right enjoyed by capital
along the entire line of business,
from first production to final dis
tribution of the whole list of com
modities and necessities of life.
The Union coal miners are demand
ing recognition of a legitimate com
bination among themselves, formed
to protect the interests of laboring
men just as monopolies and trusts
are formed to enhance the interests
Laws which permit combines of
dollars by the billion cannot
prevent combines of men by the
Any man who toils is worth more
than a dollar. The constitution was
made for him first, dollars next.
In the coal strike the magnates
are stubborn upon but one point,
recognition ofthe union as an in
dustrial organization. They have
notlooked with disfavor upon the
suggestion of Governor Odell of
New York to advance by 5 cents
per ton the price to be paid for min-1 and returns to his post of duty un
ingTcoal. jembarassed by various upheavals
So, however blinded the public occuring "' llis absece-
may become to the real merits of
the war, the principals are not for
getting what they are fighting
about. The suffering in thc cities,
the misery in the homes of work
men, the losses endured by the cor-
porations, outlawry among the
strikers, the presence ot troops 111
the field, exigencies in political
parties occasioned by the .strike, the
charges that the labor men are try
ing to run the coal business, are
outgrowths of the original conten-
tion. These phases of the strike
add to the mammoth proportions it
has assumed as a disturbing factor
in the body politic. But if final
settlement hinges upon any one of
these potent but secondary features,
as an industrial war, the great con
test will have to be declared a draw.
The magnates, however, have
virtually given away their fight on
the principle involved and the strik
ers have gained a left handed
victory theoretically. When David
Wilcox, vice president of the Dela
ware and Hudson Railroad asked
President Roosevelt to prosecute
the Union workers under the anti
trust laws, he certainly recognized
a legal organization, although he
charged it with a violation of the
law. If Wilcox and his associates
had been as willing to treat with
this organization when it first made
civil and legitimate business de
mands, as he now is "anxious for
the President to treat with and re
cognize it as a law breaker, loss,
misery, public disturbance and pop
ular passion against trusts would
have been averted.
Its the old trick of the man with
a civil suit against a neighbor seek
ing to make it criminal in order to
make the state plaintiff and avoid
costs together with the possible
odium of defeat.
VOTE FOR FREE MEN.
Tmj Republican candidates for
the legislature are to be relied upon
to carry out the principles of the
Republican platform if elected.
Upon all points not covered by the
platform, these men will act for the ,
best interests of their constituents.
On the other hand it is apparent
that the work done by Wilcox on j
this Island has in mind .1 whollv 1
different plan if the other side gets
in. Wilcox not only wants to be
the delegate, but he wants to be the
legislature as well.
Rulers are to vote
on legislative ,
questions after consultation with
Wilcox or his deputy, Senator Ka
lauokalani. There is not a more
intelligent or capable man in the
field for legislative honors than
Palmer P. Woods of Kohala. But
when he allowed the Wilcox yoke
to descend upon his shoulders he
destroyed his usftilncss to the peo
ple. Not only are men of intelli-
gence wanted in the legislature, but
.. . , . . r
they must also be men who are free ,
from irresponsible bosses. .
A CIVIC DUTY.
Tin; real estate owners of Hilo
should consider thc facts and words
of sound advice by Park Commis
sioner Stone of Rochester, N. Y.,
published elsewhere in this Issue.
Hilo will one day become a munici
pality and in the course of time will
grow to be a city of commercial im
portance. It will become a city of
fine homes renowned for its natural
beauty. Favored by a combina
tion of the first advantages which
will be as lasting as the sea, the
people of Hilo should develop a
civic pride that will make them
earnest partners in the business of
making the city more beautiful and
more attractive. It would be easy
, , , , . .
now to lay the foundation of a pub -
lie system of parks to be the pride
of the future city. The men who
own the land will find from a study
of the experience of other cities
that a liberal park policy enriches
both the municipality and the peo
ple. It is not too early for Hilo to
make a beginning.
BOYD CAME ON SIERRA.
A special wireless telegram to
the Tribune Wednesday afternoon
stated that James II. Boyd, Super
intendent of Public works arrived
in Honolulu by the Sierra. Mr.
Boyd comes home in good health
Thk KUJiOK that Palmer P.
Woods, Home Rule candidate for
the Senate is working secretly for
the election of Prince Cupid in re
turn for haole promises to vote for
him proves to be without any foun
dation. This was shown in the
' open hostility to Cupid at the War
akea meeting last Wednesday night
by Kaniho, the spokesman for
Woods. The rumors that Woods
will vote for Wilcox are just as
numerous and a whole lot more
reasonable than are those that he
will vote for Cupid.
WirrtN Governor Dole changed
the voting place in Puna from Po-
hoiki to Kalapana he practically
disfranchised the white voters of the
precinct. To vote, the residents of
Pahoa, Kapoho and Pohoiki must
go over n trail a distance of 25
to 45 miles the round trip. At Ka
lapana there is said to be one white
voter and 60 or 70 Hawaiians.
Wilcox will owe this precinct to the
long headed Governor.
Tim progress of the Japanese
murder trial in all its ramifications
from coroner's juries to its present
peculiar status has been like the
tortuous windings of a river of the
plains. The next Legislature, it is
to be hoped will have in its mem
bership men who will see to it that
the Penal Code is amended in the
interest of simple, straightforward
And now its up to Stacker.
IN HILO'S CAFES AND
ON THE BOULEVARDS.
A little party of Hilo's merry men and
maids were sitting round the festive
board; and, as story after story went the
rounds of the table, it became apparent
that each and every one was striving to
draw the "long bow" an inch or so be
yond the limit of his neighbor.
The bright eyes of the Belle from Bel
fast were aglcam with indescribable witch
cry and mirth, as she regaled the com
pany with gleanings of Celtic lore and
legend, whilst the 'veiled lids' of the
Puritanic maid front fertile Iowa, would
lift with the sudden sharpness of incred
ulity, and the dimples in her checks
would occasionally betray the true in
wardness of her laughter loving spirit,
whenever the traveler ventured upon a
c (lhc Travccr) ,m(1 bMn llMcaBUng
upon the nnturni WOndcrs to be met with
amongst the islands of the South Seas,
and far-away Ind, when the Native
Daughter of the Golden West, loth to
believe that any country in the world
could possess more natural wonders than
her own beloved State of California,
broke in upon one of his reminiscences
Well 1 I don't think that there is any
thing very wonderful in that I There's a
place in California, near the Geysers,
where you may sit upon a rock, and with
rod and line catch the speckled trout
upon your right hand, then by simply
whipping them over to a pool upon your
left you have them cooked to a turn in a
"My dear!" says bland Uncle Rufus
from the head ofthe table, "that's rather
a warm story, isn't it? What about the
temperature of the rock upon which the
fisher must sit?"
,. ... , . .
The query remained unanswered, but
thc lovely plnk of thc lady.s cheek9 was
an indication that her own "temperature"
had "riz" most rapidly, and to such an
extent that the rose in her bosom drooped
visibly, ami the little mound of the
"Mini's" choice flavored ice, upon
which lier spoon idly rested, was im
mediately transformed into a dish of
quick to note
the signals of distress in womankind, and
ever ready to attract attention towards
himself, though perhaps filled with a
laudable desire in this instance to bring
back the bounding pulse to its normal
rytlun, delivered himself as follows:
"The condition of that rose in your
dress Miss reminds me of a rather
witty story which I heard the othei day,
and tho' there arc no Pistols or Swords
in it, like Uncle's war stories, nor any
thing quite so wonderful as thc one you
have just told us yourself, yet I think
,ou wi like !t because it is a love story,
"ni1 wlth ? B1"1" !" " ,1,c1tlon (
the nymph from Belfast) it's Irish, and
1 tUerefore mnA 1)e Koodi ,.A .KOSSOon.
,nore noted for his ready wit than for his
honesty was endeavoring to convince a
."purty Colleen" of the undying qualities
of his affections, when she interrupted
his protestations with:
" 'See here, Pat 1 Look at these flow
ers! Whin I plucked thim by the way
side this moruiti' and placed thim in the
bosom of me dress, shurc they wor swate
an' fragrant, an' covered with God's dew.
An' luk at thim now; shure they're dead
already; killed by the heat of me heart.
" 'Now, if 1 were to accept your love,
an place it within the very ciutre of me
heart, don't you think it wud whither
an' die, like these flowers?' 'Ah Norahl'
says the gossoon, 'is it for another gurl to
make a posie of me; that you'd belavin'
me like that ! Shure, if I wor a flower,
an' you were to pass me by like that, be
gorra! I'd pluck mesilf, an' walk after ye
on me own stalk.' "
As the climax to the story drew near,
the Observer felt a cold chill stealing
down his spine, an involuntary glance at
Miss 'cream dish having revealed
to him the fact that the liquid sweetness
hud taken upon itself the semblance of
Mokai. If you would avoid sudden
changes in temperature, don't tell stories,
nor question the veracity of the lady who
does. To draw public attention to the
fact that n young lady's floral adornments
arc not quite so fresh as they might be, is
a sure and certain sign of the chill that
comes before the storm.
