LACK OF PATRIOTISM.
Heginning with the new year the
Tkidunh will be conducted by
Marsh & Marsh, who will reorgan
ize it upon a new business basis.
The editorial management will be
in the hands of J. W. Marsh, lately
of Portland, Ore., a man of long
experience in newspaper work.
The subscription and business de
partment will remain as heretofore.
The retiring members of the Tki
iiunk staff bespeak for the new
minagcment the support and pat
ronage of the public and prophecy
for it the success which it deserves.
BE LOYAL TO YOUR TOWN.
Go back, ye knockers, nntl sit down; .
Sit in the furthest, dimmest nislc;
Sit where they cannot see yon frown,
Make way for some one who can smile;
Cense idly to revile the town
And let the boosters "boost" awhile.
There is a whole sermon in the
above doggeral lines, which it
would be well for every citizen to
take home to himself. Now is the
time when united effort is most de
sired and there should be no quib
bling over trivialities to bring about
what is most desired for the Terri
tory and for the island of Hawaii.
It is proposed to send a represen
tee body of eight business men
from the various islands to present
Hawaii's interests before Congress
in the hope of securing the fulfill
ment of President Roosevelt's re
commendations and that of Gover
nor Carter granting to the islands
for a period of twenty years seventy-five
per cent of the federal rev
enues derived from the Territory.
What is desired is a delegation
of workers and men who are alive
to the needs and interests of the
Territory. Every inch of the way
towards a realization of the hopes
held out by the President's mes
sage to Congress, will have to be
fought with sound arguments and
persistent effort. Hilo or the is
land of Hawaii is not lacking in
available material and to be included
in the personnel of such a delegation
is an honor which any citizen, cap
able of filling the station would be
be glad to accept. This opportuni
ty should not be allowed to go by
wilhout a hearty response on th e
part of the financial and business
interests of the community, who
seek for permanent improvements
and our commercial prosperity.
The Honolulu Advertiser under
the editorial caption of "An inter
rogation" makes the following
pertinent remarks, contrasting the
piesent lack of patriotism with con
ditions under the monarchy and
What has come over the spirit of
Ho lolulu society that the gentle
men of the Navy, even when they
come with nn admiral at their
head, arc no longer entertained
and made to feel at home?
When an Knglish warship comes
here cverv man and woman of
British blood, who is accustomed
to entertain at all, makes the
strangers welcome. The arrival of
the Amphitritc about two years
ago was the occasion of constant
social festivities, and whenever the
red and white ensign is seen in the
harbor our British society opens all
its hospitable doors.
The arrival of the German cruiser
Kibe a short time ago set our Ger
man society in motion at once; and
every evening there was open
house somewhere in town for the
officers and on many evenings there
was entertainment for the men.
When a United States warship
comes, even when it flies an
admiral's flag, there is very little
doing. Has our American society
lost its patriotism?
gates arc all from Honolulu ot
Mahukona. At the same time the
enlistment of wider support at
home, giving citizens of each island
a personal interest in tlutainpaign,
is a great source of strength.
A body of men representing all
islands and both political parties,
men whose imprcssiveness is evi
denced in vigorous work, men who
know how to reach Congressmen
and not wait in the hotel lobbies
till Congressmen come to them

pelling force that will succeed, and,

Tins selection of A. U. Loeben
stein to be Hawaii's representative
on the delegation, which it is pro
posed to send to Washington in the
interest of legislation securing to
the Territory seventy-five per cent
of the federal revenues, is a judi
cious choice. Mr. Loebcnstcin is a
man among men and his long resi
dence in the Islands and his famil
iarity with matters affecting the
growth and prosperity of the Terri
tory, makes him especially fitted
for the duties which the committee
ECHOES OF THE PRESS.
The last attempt at securing as
sisted white labor for the cane fields
from Porto Rico was not a success
and it is therefore unlikely that a
new supply from the West Indies
will be attempted. On the other
hand the Portuguese have proved
themselves a reliable and thrifty
class of labor and it would seem to
be good policy to try to attract
some of the immigrants from Por
tugal proper as from Madeira and
the Azores. The laborers of that
nationality brought to the Islands
in former years, have proved to
be of.au eminently home building
type, and that is the class of immi
grants that the Territory is in need
of. Garden Island.
If those who feel thny have a
grievance against any any of the
county officials will take the trouble
to read the Hilo papers they will
find conditions here so much better
than they are on Hawaii that the
mistakes here pale into insignifi
cance. In Ililo recently the county attor
ney refused to make up the budget
for consideration of the board
and denied the board's right to
compel him to do so. He further
refused to furnish the board with
any report of the work done in his
Such haggliugs are detrimental
to the public and should meet a
rebuke at the election next fall.
Any official who quibbles over petty
technicalities to the detriment of
the public should receive nothing
but scorn from his fellow men.
The proposed delegation will be
a good advertising medium. It will
make a good impression on the
President and Congress. It will
show that the people of this Terri
tory are not entirely selfish and can
display more practical enthusiasm
over measures of mutual benefit
than when asking special favors.
The President is disnosed to helu

RETAILERS OF GOSSIP.
It is surprising how many more
things you believe than you know.
Let one of our New Year's resolu
tions be to refrain from being a
common carrier of common gossip.
The receiver of stolen goods is
held in the law equally as guilty as
the thief. And the man who helps
to circulate a slander is as bad as
the one who originates it. No con
straint is put upon a man to act
thus. It is wilful and atrocious.
To put one's hand into a barrel cf
pitch and then go round shaking
hands with everybody is a small
offence compared with this. People
who are given to scandal are not
the most perfect, but are the most
transparent in their actions.
It is often to hide their own de
fects that they endeavor to be
spatter their neighbor's character.
If you go back far enough into the
history of such man or his family,
you will find some "skeleton in the
cupboard" that had better be kept
out of sight. Had they been dealt
with as they treat their fellowmeu,
their names would long ere this
have Leer, consigned to eternal
when properly directed in matters
pertaining to Hilo's welfare. The
progressive spirit which moves the
men behind the scheme to build a
Masonic hull, insures early construc
tion of a building that will be an
oiniment and a credit to the community,
The people of this Territory must
