1.. W. HAWORTH - - Editor.
In quarters from which it should
be least expected arises, this early,
the foreboding wail that the gov
ernment we shall have under the
county system will be bad. This
pessimistic view is taken by many
who, while the bill was pending,
talked for it and favored it, but
secretly hoped it would fail or con
tain flaws that would nullify local
government for two years more.
It is significant too, that this lament
of evils to come, proceeds chiefly
from those whose grip on power or
whose hold upon office, for the first
time in a decade will be rendered
What, then, under such condi
tions, are these calamitous and dole
ful predictions worth? Of what
importance is it, that a man for the
first time, feeling insecure in the
tenure of office, lifts up his voice
and trembles for the welfare of his
country? If a hitherto controlling
political faction foresees forced ab
dication, should good citizens writhe
in sackcloth and ashes to the lugub
rious melody of its dying song?
Little office holders, men who
have administered sinecures in Ha
waii for the past decade naturally
feel that their services are indispen
sable and look upon their dethrone
ment as the beginning of anarchy
in local and Territorial affairs.
These are the loudest in the chorus
that county government will be
synonomous with rotten govern
ment. The inspiration of this ca
lamitous prediction is either ignor
ance or hypocrisy or both. It is an
outcropping of the threadbare echo
in Hawaii that only tliose who are
now "in" are capable or honest.
The prediction carries with it also
the gentle admission that the first
ballot may restore some of the
prophets to private life.
A grkatkr mistake cannot be
made, as Hawaii enters upon a
career of local or self government,
than to foment a division of the
voters along racial Unas. The
mistake will be followed by the
same 1 esults whether caused by the
natural predjudices of the Hawaii
ans or by the designs of white men.
Thp.t a portion of the Hawaiian vot
ing element should be deeply and
permanently hostile to the haole is
a logical sequence of past events
and human nature. That it would
be foi the highest interest of the
Hawaiian and for the general good
of the Territory for this hostility to
be replaced by a sense of civic re
sponsibility and a willingness to
vot'j on men and measures from the
standpoint of merit, no one will
deny. Just here is the "white man's
burden" in Hawaii and the politi
cian who faces the problem serious
ly will find a powerful ally in the
many broad minded Hawaiian-Americans,
who are counseling their
people to vote for the best men for
office regardless of race.
It is doubtful if there has ever
been a more determined effort made
before the primaries to capture an
office than is being made by Sheriff
Andrews and his friends. The
director-general of the canvass is J.
T. Stacker, and every art known
will be used to boost Andrews.
The two arguments now being
worked hardest are that no other
man in Hawaii is competent to fill
the position; and the other argu
ment is a recital of the Sheriff's
great benefactions to Hilo and the
Wiiilm Hilo does not want to
dominate arbitrarily the politics of
the County of East Hawaii, she
will protest against the scheme of
outside domination which would
give to the outer districts practi

I in Hawaii that it is leaving the cane
fields in myriad regiments to join
the spectral armies of the Japanese
beetle. Dr. Stiles of Washington
now announces that he has found a
germ that will make life intolerable
for the mosquito and cause him to
lie down and die in cohorts and
legions. In fact this germ is to
produce a mortality so great, that
the genus mosquito is to disappear
from the face of the globe before its
ravages. The haunts of men are
to become pestilential and death
ridden to the striped legged mos
quito with the falsetto buzz. The
dengue distributers will also die and
so will the carriers of the yellow
fever germ. Oblivion yawns for
the whole buzzing biting trjbe and
the mosquito will become a mere
reminiscence, a myth withwhich to
frighten bad children.

object of this organization is the up

already recognized the possibilities
for trade expansion in the Orient

of the latter are represented in its
councils. With the Congress held

be good for the commercial bodies
of the Islands to get in touch with

DAVIS AND MAOUON.
L'roctMMlliiRK Uroiitfhl Against Tlicm
Honolulu, July 28. The second
series of disbarment trials before
the Supreme Court started yester
day with the case of J. A. Magoon.
Both were called together shortly
before noon, at the close of the
memorial proceedings, but neither
case was then .quite ready. Attor
ney General Andrews had not re
ceived service of the answer in
either case. Mr. Magoon said his
answer was at that Moment barely
completed. Mr. Davis was sur
prised to learn that his answer had
not been served on the Attorney
General, he having left it at the
police station at 9 o'clock Saturday
night. He then lent the Attorney
General a copy of the document,"
asking him to return one of the
copies because the typewriting came
high. Mr. Andrews did not wish
to proceed with the cases until he
could have time to peruse the
Mr. Davis, in a mild aud plead
ing tone, begged that his trial
should not occupy any morning
tune, as he wished to attend to his
duties of District Magistrate to the
best of his ability until the Gover
nor returned. Chief Justice Frear,
after a word with his colleagues,
announced that Mr. Magoou's case
would be called for trial at 1 130 p.
in. and that of Mr. Davis would
follow and continue until the case
was submitted. He had remarked,
in answer to Mr. Davis, that there
was another District Magistrate.
Mr. Davis received the order of the
Court with tine remark that then he
would have to hold his court -at 8
o'clock in the morning.
During the last few years the
(mosquito has become known to be
the propatrator of at least two
fevers, viz: malarial and yellow
fevers. In each of these fevers a
mosquito of a particular species is
The two diseases arc propagated
by two distinct species of the insect.
Neither of the species is found in
the higher latitudes. In each case
it is the female mosquito which is
the host of the organism which,
when introduced into the human
system, will produce the specific
fever. The relation of the insect to
malarial fever was demonstrated by
Dr. Manson of England, who, with
his associates, spent a summer in
the most malarious section of Italy.
Living in mosquito-proof houses
and remaining indoors at night
(the business hours of the mosquito)
the doctor and his associates were
able to completely avoid contract
ing malaria. Dr. Manson took with
him back to England an infected
insect and there allowed it to bite
his son, who promptly developed
Having demonstrated that the
mosquito was the agent directly
concerned in the spread of malaria,
yellow fever was also suspected of
being transmitted in the same or a
similar way. An American con
tract surgeon, Dr. Lazear, as a
member of the yellow fever com
mission, made a large number of
experiments at Havana, Cuba. In
this case it was proved that the
mosquito (a different species from
the malaria-producing kind) would
by its bite cause yellow fever. Dr.
Lazear and a number of others gave
their lives to science by so doing.
The mode of infection by means
of the mosquito is briefly as follows:
The insect having bitten a malarious
or yellow fever patient becomes the
host of a minute organism which
develops in the stomach of the in
sect and is carried to the various
organs of its body.
The salivary glands of the insect
are a special point of infection. The
infected mosquito may then by its
bite transmit the organism to the
human species, causing malarial or
yellow fever as the case may be.
Apparently both of these fevers
can to a great extent be controlled
by the destruction of the mosquito,
itsjeggs and its breeding places,
"jrrvmicipal "and state governments
should be given every assistance in
draining all swamps inhabited by
either of these species of insects,
aud destroying, as far as possible,
their breeding places. Destruction
of the insects and their eggs, while
of some avail, is much inferior to
the destruction of the places in
which they are bred. Farm Jour

Friend Tkihunk: I wish to in
quire who are working at this boom
launching of Czar Andrews besides
himself and his disciple, the editor I
of the Herald. Out this way I find '
no one outside of the Herald circle
who approves of the move. There !
are few who favor a man who dur- j
ing his long term in office has been I
a mere mouthpiece of a crowd at.e ZittrAnx, Vva Ann- 00
Honolulu. There is one thing sure:
There is one thing sure:
The people of this section have not
forgotten his stupid acts during
plague time. At that time he com- j
mitted arbitrary acts which any
where else than on this Island would !
have run him out. For such a man t
to have the gall to ask for a uomi-
nation on the Republican ticket in-1 s
vites defeat for that party. Thejcr
voters at the nrimriries have tinrtv
duties. The first of these is to
choose candidates whose past record 1
will not defeat the party. Were
Andrews not such a jay, or, if he
was not in the liniuk of short-
sighted and insincere friends, lefjP5T BANK OF HILO
wuuiu 1101 secK 10 iorce 111s jiuig
ment of himself upon the Republi
can party. His agents and himself
have been through this district
seeking to cinch the nomination.
They seem to forget that a nomina
tion is not equivalent to an election.
, . . . . , ,
fins canvass of Andrews, backed
by the Herald, and made before the

primaries have been called, is con-
victing evidence tnat uiey are airaiu 1
of the unprejudiced choice of the
members of the Republican party.
It is an effort to usurp by sly and
underhanded means the privileges
of the rank and file of the party.
It is an effort to pack the primaries.
Because Andrews has had his
own way in the past shall he be
allowed to dictate to the Republican
party? Straight Rkvuhmcan.
