Honolulu, Feb. 23 Asked con
cerning probable steps in the matter
of a test case relative to appropria
tions, Governor Carter said today:
"If I may judge from what I
have seen in the newspapers in re
gard to the test case in the Supreme
Court concerning appropriations,
there seems to have been a great
misunderstanding as to what was
contemplated when a test was
originally spoken of.
"The Senators were satisfied that
the appropriation bills which arc
now being used as a financial work
ing basis could be used to a large
exTent without any question. The
proposition was that the test lay in
how far the administration could
proceed with these appropriations
as guides, not necessarily in regard
to the validity of working along

gone on within it. The Grand jury deuce owing to the apparent lear on , "As questions might
gone on witiiiti it. rue uranu jury
has decided that offenses by mem
bers of the police force shall be tried
in another court than the private,.
office of their chief. Now it is
strange that Mr. Andrews can give
the Grand Jury sufficient evidence
on which to base indictments of his
subordinates, and yet he did not
consider this knowledge of their
guilt sufficient to cause him to re
move them from the force. How
many thousand years must such
business continue, before the chief
himself becomes amenable to grand
juries, if-not to superior officers at
Honolulu? How many years must
go by before a citizen may criticize
and object to the Andrews methods,
without being charged with faith
lessness to the Republican party?
Andrews has harbored embezzlers
and extortioners on the police force.
He knows it and he knew it.
Listen to this from the Grand
jury: "The Jury would further
suggest that employees of the police
department on being discharged for
cause, be barred from employment
in that department."
The Grand iury acain puts its
finger on a prehistoric flaw modern
ized and brought down to date by
Governor Carter needs nothing
more than the Grand Jury's report,
signed by Mr. Stacker himself, to
convince him that the Island of Ha
waii needs a successor to Sheriff
The condition within the ranks
of the Republican party in and
about Hilo is intolerable. From
interviews and conversations with
all kinds of Republicans in every
clique and clan the one feeling
common to all is that of disgust.
This is so or else the various per
sons of all sides did not know what
they were talking about. Kach and
every one said he was sick and dis
gusted with the acts and attitudes
j of the several others. This feeling
must quickly pass away and be
followed by a definite course of ac
tion by the entire mass. In Hilo
and in the Republican party we
must live together and work to
gether the same as every where else.
Republicans here wont make much

tire bar sinister that marks the
escutcheon of every other man.
Let Republican councils plan how
they may reward Republicans; not
how to punish them. Let commit
teemen study the problem of har
monizing by keeping everybody in
side the lines. The method which
seeks to harmonize by kicking men
out of the party is effective but
foolish. The party that is.-hurmo-v
nied in tin's way winds up in the
minority and the enemy swallows
up the harmonizer.
One of the first steps toward a
more united party here is for the
fellows who are disgusted to forget
their disgust and go in determined
to sec fair play.
Tin; Herald is guilty of its usual
inaccuracy when it says that Sheriff
Andrews' enemies had Governor
Carter by the coat tails while he
was in Hilo. Governor Carter,
while here was in the company of
members of the general reception
committee, men who talked on all
subjects except politics. If the

Muoker Ulreu In Honor of Forlloth
The smoker given by the Hllo lodge of
the Knights of Pythias at their hall last
Saturday evening In honor of the fortieth
anniversary of the founding of the order
was a delightful occasion to all present.
The hall was packed by the members
and their friends. The rooms had been
prettily decorated and no detail for the '
comfort and entertainment of the guests '
had been omitted. During the course of1
tite evening the bestof refreshments weru '
served. The commiUce In charge of the 1
arrangements was composed of C. II. W. I
Hitchcock, V. R. Campbell, N. C. Will-
fong, P. C. Ffeamernud M. I'. McDonald.
The principal feature of the entertain-.
ment was a farce comedy showing n
court scene from one of the most popular
plays of the Eighteenth Century in En
gland. The dramatis persouac were H.
L. Ross, Judge: W. II. Smith, W. S.
Wise, lawyers; Kulberg, clerk; a jury,
bailiffs and other factotums of an old time
court room. The proceedings were car
ried out in a great variety of languages,
one of the striking features being the
reading of certain papers in the classic
tongue of Greece by D. Lycttrgus. The
farce was a roaring one from beginning
to cud. The court scene was followed by
songs and speeches and stories, the com
pany dispersing at an early hour.
The Time Well Spent.
Honolulu, l'cb. 22. "What impressed
me most in my trip around Hawaii is the
wonderful possibilities of the big island,"
saiil Governor Carter yesterday. "I was
surprised at the extent of the island and
of its undeveloped resources. It seems
to tne that Hawaii ought to support a
population as large as Porto Rico, than
which it is considerably larger. The is
land should in time accommodate 600,000
people. The construction of n railroad
would open up large districts which now
ore arid and entirely without population.
There arc vast areas of land now used for
grazing which I believe' could be prof
"Another thing that surprised me very
much was the low standard of efficiency
among public officials on that island. I
intend to do what I can to raise the stand
ard of government service on that island
as well as in the entire Territory.
"I certainly learned more lu my trip
than I ever knew of Hawaii before, and
I believe the month was profitably spent.

themselves it is possible to learn of their
wants in a way which I could never do
