REACH OUT FOR RECRUITS.
The call for primaries in April,
issued by the Republican Central
Committee and issued again by the
District Committee of Hilo, entreats
all Republicans and all who wish to
affiliate with the Republican party
to meet at the precincts in primary
election to choose delegates to the
Territorial convention. The' call
particularly addresses itself to those
not only who arc stalwart in the
faith, but extends to those who wish
to join the Republican procession.
The Herald, true to its instincts
of selfisnness and exclusion, op
poses taking new recruits into the
party. It is opposed to making it
easy for men to ally themselves with
the Republican party. It has tried
by every known disreputable trick,
not only to make it hard to claim
recruits, but the Herald editor has
sought to make himself such a dic
tator that he might with a wave of
his hand expel from the Republican
party any otic whose work or whose
ambition ran counter to his own.
His efforts availed nothing but the
defeat of the party. Now, that the
general committees are going to the
people again with a call asking the
party members and the party sym
pathizers to line up for the battle it
ill becomes his disgruntled majesty
of the Herald to publish nonsense
that will discourage the work of
The approaching primaries are
not for the purpose of choosing can
didates who will go forth in a cam
paign against the enemy. After
the primary election there is to be
no other election, where, as the
Herald says, the Republican vote
may be one-third less than at the
primaries. If there has been any
such dropping off in past campaigns
it is as fair to blame the campaign
management as it is the voters.
In the very outset, the gentlemen
who feel the thrill of ambition to
answer their country's call to fill an
office would do well to remember:
that if they want to have Republi
can votes in the fall, the voters must
be gathered into the Republican
party; and if the voters once come
into the Republican party they must
not be kicked out by a small fac
tion which gets roaring mad when
it can't use them.

THE HOARD OF TRADE.
There should be one hundred
men at the meeting of the Hoard of
Trade of Hilo tomorrow night.
The work of this organization will
be for the benefit of all classes. Jil
classes are invited to become mem
bers. The form of organization is
such that the influence of every man
with an idea can be felt. The fees
for membership have been fixed at
a very low rate, so that none are
barred. Through membership in
the various committees any man
can readily put in motion any prop
osition for the benefit of Hilo. The
organization has been planntd on
the broadest and most liberal lines
and there is small chance of friction
or unpleasant contention.
The best way to perform a service
for the city and district of Hilo, if
you have a good scheme, is to enlist
the Hoard of Trade with you. You
can do this best by joining the or
ganization and by making yourself
heard in its councils.
A FINANCIAL STAR.
As a financier, Treasurer Kepoi-J
kai has smashed the pedestals of
America's greatest financial mas
ters. Kepoikai is a star of the first
magnitude. All shinplaster econo
mists and warehouse script infla
tionists are mere scintillating specks
on the horizon of nowhere. Ke
poikai shimmers in the nearSky
like an orb of gold. When the
Territory owes a bill a piece of
paper worth the fraction of a farth
ing pays it. When the creditor
owes the Territory he must pay in
the standard mintage of the realm.
Go it, Kepoikai! You have smit
ten the arid rock of financial dis
tress and behold our Territory is
treading the golden pave of afflu
ence. Pay in warrants and collect
in gold. Take nothing for taxes
except the good hard stuff; not only
now, but for a whole year. Pay
out nothing but warrants. The
balance on hand will soon mount
into figures beautiful. Keep it up
long enough and a stream of gold
will flow into the Islands from San
Francisco. Make Territorial war
rants perform the functions of a cir
culating medium everywhere except
at the windows of the Territorial
Treasury. It's a capital scheme.
The champions of an inflated
paper currency issued by the Gov
ernment figured that greenbacks
should be good for taxes, internal
revenue, customs dues and any old
thing. But, our paper is to pass
only from the Government and not
back to it. It's a new scheme and
its inventor should be perpetuated
in heroic brone.
meted out by the Supreme Court
was proportioned to anything ex
cept the animosity of the majority
of the Court toward the respon
dents. It is thought that a review
of the Humphreys case by any im
partial tribunal would result in his
exoneration and in the restoration
of his rights to follow his profession
in the Territory of Hawaii. It is
believed that the Supreme Court
justices, either consciously or un
consciously were biased in their
rulings by the clamor and hate of
factions which had waged bitter
war in Honolulu for three years.
The decision of Judge Dole in re
Davis gives substantial color to
these popular notions.
The time will come when the
honor of Hawaii will demand the
reversal of the Supreme Court's
disbarment of A. S. Humphreys
and a modification of its findings in
the case of Davis. This will be the
ultimate decision at the bar of pub
lic opinion, and it would be well for
the records of the Court to tally
with the popular judgment, which
in these cases is right.
Tim Advertiser, 'which has hith
erto dominated the powers in Hono
lulu which look after the public
welfare on this island, still calls the
Volcano Road a boulevard. A
people who will supinely snooze in
the shade of palm trees and pay
their taxes to an island 200 miles
away while their own roads are go
ing to rack and ruin should perhaps
continue forever to be as clay in the
hands of the potter. With this
island as one county and the man
agement of affairs in the hands of
men on this island we could get our
money's worth, something we never
have yet had. And yet there are
those who call centralized govern
Whkn the Territorial Treasurer
refuses to accept Territorial war
rants for taxes he places an already
discredited province of the United
States before the world as a mendi
canta common, shiftless bank
rupt, appealing to its creditors for
alms. As a stroke of financial pol
icy such a decision is rank folly.
If it were within the Treasurer's
discretion to accept or reject Terri
torial warrants for taxes, sound
business sense and public policy
would lead to an acceptance rather
than a rejection of such tenders.
Kven if at a discount elsewhere,
Territorial warrants should com
mand par in its own counting rooms.
Tim man who now contrives a
scheme which will result in an ex
hibit for Hawaii at St. Louis can be
safely entrusted to lead a forlorn
hope in any cause. It's a little
more than a month until the gates
of the great fair will be open to the
world. Hawaii has been talking of
an exhibit for three years. In a
few months the talk will turn to
reminiscence of St. Louis and how
to best represent ourselves at Port
land next year.
