ALL LOST SAVE HONOR.
"All is lost save honor" appar
ently was the motive wliicli prompt
ed George R. Carter, when it re-1
publican candidate was elected
sheriff of O.tlut without his appro
val, to resign his office of Governor.
After making a personal fight
out of the election of a county tick
et on Oaliu upon a self-constructed
platform of opposition to the
regular republican nominees and a
bitter personal campaign resulting
"in a victory for those whom he so
strenuously opposed, there was left
only one decent thing for the Go
vernor to do and that was to re
sign. Uy his attitude of antago
nism and repeated assertion that
every ballot cast for A. M. Hrown
would be construed as a slap at the
administration, the Governor plac
ed himself in the unenviable posi
tion of having to withdraw from
the gubenatorial office in the case
of the success of his opponents.
Hither Carter did not place much
confidence in party loyalty atid
party pledges, or else he overesti
mated his own personal popu
larity in attempting to throw him
self into the breach and block the
success cf the republican ticket.
No greater mistake could be
made by the Governor than to sup
pose that a Territorial Executive's
power and influence are co-extensive
with a National administration
or that it can seriously be consider
ed as a governing factor in a local
county election. It was because
of this feeling of resentment that
the voters administered so severe a
rebuke for the Governor's inter
ference last Tuesday. The same
feeling was reflected in the result
of the election throughout the
County of Iiawaii and we saw an
otherwise strong republican local
ticket go down in defeat largely
because of the Governor's attitude
in attempting to dominate his party.
It may be that very little can be
said against Governor Carter's
shrewdness and business ability,
but as a diplomat or politician, even
his warmest admirers cannot claim
for him great distinction. If he is
gificd with executive capacity, he
lacks the tact and personality to
hold his friends together, and that
confidence in his subordinates which
make willing employees and capa
ble public servants. The theory
of undated resignations and that
every government employee should
bend the knee, is un-American and
contrary to the democratic spirit
wherever liberty and freedom of
speech prevails. He is accepted as
eminently respectable and honest in
all his actions and to be actuated
solely by what he considered was
for the best interests of the Terri
tory, but his policies have been
arbitrary and domineering, and his
desire to rule as a supreme dictator
was so strong within him that he
has lost more friends than he has
made during his brief tenure of
office. While a man of strong per
sonality and character, he has sig
nally failed to exhibit an originali
ty or force of character which would
place him among the successful
leaders of men and affairs. His
last fiasco in attempting to indivi
dually and personaly oppose his
own party, and the campaign of
abuse and mud-slinging into which
he allwed himself to be drawn, lelt
opsu to him only one course when
his efforts proved futile to disrupt
the party, the Governor resigned
and he will hereafter flock to him
self. Rui'iiitKiNO lo the action of West
Iiawaii in downing the Republican
ticket, Carl Smith, recalling his
championship of the proposition for
two counties for Hawaii, can only
say "I told you so,"
ICspi'.ciai, attention is called to
the accurate table of official returns
appearing on the front page of this
Of course only regret can be ex
pressed that what appeared to be the
strongest ticket in the field should
have gone down in defeat at the
county election. Two causes may
be ascribed for this result. 'J he
fust was the combination of two
parties which agreed upon a fusion
ticket selected from two elements of
strength which arc uncontrollable
and governed by an unreasoning
piejudicc. The second was the
spirit of retaliation among a mass
of voters for the shortcomings of
Governor Carter, for which the Re
publican party was made to suffer.
These were the unfortunate coin
cidences which resulted generally
in republican defeat in the county
of Hawaii, although personal tea
sons for or against one or more can
didates may have materially af
fected the result 111 certain localities.
Now that a board of supervisors
and a complete set of county officers
have been elected for this enmity,
upon whom the duty rests of start
ing aright a system of county gov
ernment, the public should render
such moral support and assistance
as so important a step demands.
The leaders of the party elected to
power declare their intention and
purpose to put into operation an
economical and honest 'administra
tion of county affairs, having in
view the protection of the business
interests and the welfare of the
community, lo the public is left
the duty of hampering or assisting
them in their first efforts at county
government. The present officers
are elected for a year and a half and
the Republican party can accom
plish no good purpose by any at
tempt to wreck the initial structure
of county government under the
auspices of "its adversary. The
purse strings will largely be in the
control of a capable and conserva
tive board of supervisors, and the
most the Republican party can do is
to watch and wait. The records of
county officers will speak for them
selves and incompetent officials will
soon be discovered and relegated to
where they belong.
Who is to be the next Governor
is now the absorbing question. Had
the Governor served out his term,
Secretary "Jack" would have been
the heir apparent and logical suc
cessor. H. P. Baldwin has neither
the time nor inclination to seek
political office. Judge Kepoikai,
a shrewd politician and an Ha
waiian scholar, is best suited for the
office which he now fills. The ap
pointment of Henry K. Cooper
would come nearer to satisfying the
majority of the people of this Terri
tory than any name thus far men
tioned. He is a man of sterling
qualities, of high character, business
ability and a polished gentleman
all the requirements to make a
II. I,. II01.STWN, who has posed
a.s the political "boss" of Kohala,
appears to have either lost his grip
or been pocketed in the other bunch
of cattle. We may expect at no
distant date to see Holsteiu a candi
date for the Senate bearing a brand
other than "republican."
DiSAiTOiNTMKNT over the action
of a misguided Supreme Court, who
were his personal appointees, in
sustaining a "gold brick" county
law, may have had much to do in
crushing Governor Carter's confi
dence in the gratitude of his fellow
PiU.HG SMiTH.the "Bystander,"
will now have to revise his eulogy
of the most powerful Territorial ex
ecutive in the United States.
F. Bkughku.i insists that the
resignation of Governor Carter does
not liquidate'his claim. "The bill is

A question which is pulling StirrlfT
elccl Willhm Keolauui nntl other fusion.
1st lenders is whether the ctincliiictit of n
comity law ipse facto terminates the
terms of office of members of the Sheriff's
Department. There is n feeling of unrest
in the police force, nnil It has been rum
ored that none of the present incumbents
will resign, It was reported that Cnpt.
W. A. I'cttcr who its n republican was
elected Deputy Sheriff for the district
of South Hilo would refuse to serve under
SlieriirKcolanul, but Cnpt. I'cttcr denies
this statement most cinpithlcally. II
there is no express provision in the Coun
ty Act providing for the termination of
office of the present officers, the public
may see the County of Ilnwnil presided
over by two distinct nnd separate execu
tive low officers. This would mean that
before SherlfT Scarlc can be displaced by
Sheriff-elect Keolauui, he must either re
sign or be removed by the Governor.
When interviewed by n Tkiiiu.nh re
presentative, SherlfT Se.irle wns non-committal
on the subject: "I have nothing to
say for publication," said Sheriff Searlc.
"The question has been raised and the're
appears to be some ground for doubt on
the subject. I certainly have no iuteti
lion of resigning and, ol course, if my
term of office continues under the Ter
ritorial administration, there is no good
reason why I should not retain office.
This is n matter which I have given little
consideration. If my office is vacated by
operation of the County law, I am simply
in the situation as described by John J.
IugalU of Kansas, when he failed of re
election, 'I am n statesman out of a job.'
I have no plans whatever for the future."
It is understood that the matter has
been regarded ns such n serious matter,
that Sheriff-elect Keolauui has retained
