Offer Thee a thankful prayer.
The setting apart of one clay in
every year ns a day of thanksgiving
admits that the Great Giver of all
gooJ presides over ns and is the
fountain of alj blessings. It is a
day particularly for pause and for
reflection upon the blessings vouch
safed us. It is not necessary that
parade shall be made, but it is
proper that those who really appre
ciate what they have enjoyed shall
gather about God's altar or the
parental board and give expression
with thankful hearts for what they
If upon next Thursday you arc
not giving thanks, why is it so? It
is not a mere holiday devoted to
festivities and hilarity, but a day of
reverence, of remembrance and
gratitude. I,et us forsake our 1
pleasures for a brief space and I
cither in our own homes or by
attending divine worship upon
Thanksgiving Day show our appre
ciation of the Divine mercies which
have been bestowed upon us.
If the year has Hot been so pros
perous as others, let us look upon
the bright spots which we have en
joyed and remember with grateful
hearts that it might have been
worse. Let us remember that every
one of us has the power to create a
little sunshine in our own and in
the lives of others. We may have
burdens to bear, but in helping
others, by acts of self-sacrifice and
by doing unto others as we would
be done by, our own trials and
troubles glide awaj'from us and we
revel in the very joy of living. Let
not the day go by without some
form of observance. Even those
with pessimistic souls may have an
optimistic appetite to be thankful
It is worthy of note that the ad
ministration officials are paying
seme attention to the "unworthy
protests" of the Ililo Board of Trade
regarding their official interpreta
tion of the laud laws of Hawaii.
The Honolulu press appear to have
run away with the idea that this
last report addressed to Washing
ton, which it is claimed contains
"mere generalities," is the first and
only complaint lodged with the
Territorial officers against their
misconception of the spirit of the
Research in the achives of the
office of the Commissioner of Public
l.auds would reveal a budget of
specific cases to satisfy the most
exacting and fastidious mind as to
the policy of the land officials in
their efforts to keep settlers off the
public lands. Instead of seeking
to drive homesteaders away from
their holdings and to discourage
the immigration of white settlers
in Hawaii, the Territorial Land
Office should be an adjunct to the
Hawaii Promotion Committee.
The opening and settlement of the
public lauds should be made an in
ducement to bring people from the
mainland and elsewhere to contri
bute to the settlement and prosperi
ty of the Territory by a resident
laboring class. The great success
of the colonizing schemes of south
ern California and the present rush
to the northwest Territory is due
to the liberal land policy adopted
by these countries. There is al
rcady,suflicicnt land set aside for
forest reserve, but with a continua
tion of the antagonistic policy a
gainst the settlement of the public
domain, we may yet witness all
lands not absolutely necessary for
sugar cultivation, deserted by Am
erican settlers and reserved for the
future expansion of large estates.

OUR FUTURE CITIZENS.
Under the editorial caption of
"The Power of Sugar," the Hono
lulu Bulletin prints a strong lead
ing article upon the future of these
islands. It contains much food for
thought and assimilation and is
worthy of careful consideration by
those upon whom the responsibility
rests of shaping the destiny of this
Territory. The following are
"Sugar planters of Hawaii are
day by day determining the char
acter of the population of the
islands. They are shaping the fu
ture of Hawaii, politically and
morally. The standard of future
citizenship rests largely with them.
It is inevitable, because the labor
of any country developing under
natural- conditions furnishes the
basis for the controlling citizenship
of future days. The predominat
ing industry shapes the destiny of

The broad and sweeping charges
made by the Ililo Board of Trade
against the Loud Department arc
mere generalities and unworthy of
a place iu any communication
emanating from a public body. What
should be presented in each case is
a definite charge backed up by
proof. If the Board had no time to
prepare these it should have at least
been decent enough to omit whole
sale libelous accusations against an
official who is, from his official posi

complains, unable to defend him
