ALASKA AND HAWAII.
The opponents of County Gov
ernment in Honolulu point to Alaska
as a shining example of a country
reveling in benefits accruing from
the absence of counties or local
Alaska has worried along without
either counties or municipalities but
she has had to pay no tribute to a
Honolulu or an extravagant army
of public employees and reckless
administrators such as have ruled
the roost in Honolulu for the past

hearts of their owners. When a
street in an Alaskan town must be
improved, the citizens and merch
ants pass the hat and hire a con
tractor to do it. When a watch
man is required, he collects his pay
by private subscription. When a
community is too remote from the
office of the United States Marshal
or oie of his deputies it is ruled by
"miner's meetings," and the com
mittees appointed at such gather
ings have plenary powers. They
settle everything from the commis
sion of felonies to disputes over the
numpmliin of a sack of snuds. If
the officers of the United States
Court catch the defendant after
wards, that is nothing to the miner's
If the Hawaiian Inlands could
- have the Alaskan system pure and
simple, without thejneubus of the
Territorial government at Honolulu,
they would unquestionably be much
better off than they are. If the Ho
nolulu system were transferred to
Sitka, Alaska would squirm like a
poisoned snake from the Aleutian
Islands to Ketchikan. Alaska needs
a municipality law; Hawaii needs
County government. In Alaska
the population centers in camps and
towns which spring up in a day,
may flourish two or three years,
then vanish. They should be able
to organize municipal governments
for these settlements.
In Hawaii the problem is alto
gether different. The problem here
is to extend to an alien people the
forms and principles of American
government. In the four "years
trial the people of these Islands
have had a miserable specimen of
government, whatever be its label.
The renewal of the out cry against
local government for the Islands of
Hawaii indicates that the spoilers of
the Islands have taken a new lease
of hope. They hope to batter down
the courace and determination of
the new administration to look to
the people and not to the patricians.
Hilo gets the Territorial conven
tion. It meets April 21. The pri
maries to select delegates to the
Territorial convention will be held
April 9. All Republicans and those.
who desire to affiliate with the Re
publican party are invited tO'take
part in selecting the delegates.
The delegates to be chosen at the
Hilo convention will of course be a
Roosevelt delegation. Six Republi
cans could hardly be found in Ha
waii who would need to be in
structed on this point. The six
delegates will also have the naming
of the next member of the Republi
can National Committee for this
Territory. During the past four
years Hon. Samuel Parker has filled
this office with credit to himself and
to the Hawaiian people. He has a
strong following -who would like- to
see him hold the position for another
four years and it is doubtful if any
delegation chosen, can find a better
man to represent Hawaii in the
national working councils of the

THE MORMON COUP.
The fact that a few score degene
rates in Utah are still providing
harems for' themselves pursuant to
divine revelation is evident of moral
ulceration of one sort. The fact
that the leading officials of the
Mormon church, openly defy the
terms of their own compact with
Congress, tinder which Utah gained
statehood, is evidence of a depravity
of public morals in that state which
may or may not be the logical out
growth of infamous private standards
and an infamous church creed.
Senator Smoot and Apostle Snoot
might double up in their domestic
multiplicities ad infinitum, and
while the public might have feelings
about their conduct there should be
no general alarm. Hope for the
public safety would lie in the belief
that the Smoots and Snoots would
wind up in insane 'asylums and
But when a church steals state

Smoot and Snoot in the United
States Senate confess to having vio
lated the compact under which Utah
gained a right to a representation
in the Senate. The entire Snoot
outfit chuckles that through the
chicane of polygamous priests they
are immune from the penalties of
the Kdmunds Act. The scarlet
woman from the Great Salt I,ake
tweaks the nose of Uncle Sam.
