Rkcoonizino the wisdom and
propriety of teaching the lesson of
patriotism, love of country and re
spect for its defenders set forth in
the observance of Decoration Day,
the territorial schools are closed on
that day by the makers of our
school laws. Such respect for thc
day should be paid by all schools
by suspending the usual order of
work, albeit the lesson of the day
may be better taught in ways other
than the empty form of closing.
THE TUKHENS SYSTEM.
Record Kept nnd Tlllo to Laud C'er
tilled by Slate.
One of the most useful pieces of
Territorial legislation so far en
acted; is the Torrcns land registra
tion system. By enacting this sys
tern the legislature put the Territory
of Hawaii in the front rank of pro-'
gresstve members of the federal
union. The system is every day
justifying its enactment and is
steadily growing in favor.
Fortunately the effort to adopt
the s, stem did not have to run the
gauntlet here, that similar efforts
have had to run elsewhere. There
was not, as there have been in other
states and territories large interests
whose future and large profits Were
bound up in a continuation of the
old system of titles, under which, in
fact, no title rested in absolute secur
ity. In Illinois, for instance, the
Torrcns Laud Registration system
has always been fought by the ab
stract of title companies of Chicago
and other large places. These con
cerns had large capital invested;
collectively they constituted what
was in effect a trust, and were thus
enabled to charge, large fees for ab
stract of title, without which the
conveyance of land was impossible.
The fact that the Great Chicago
fire of 1871 had destroyed the
greater part of the records oi title
No stkps have yet been taken for
the celebration of the one great na
tional holiday the Fourth of July.
Preparations for amusements on
that date are planned; but patriotic
exercises, without which the day
cannot be fittingly observed, have
not received attention. It is time
that the more purely patriotic feat
ures of the day be considered. The
usual exercises, consisting of an
oration, the reading of the Declar
ation of Independence, music by a
chorus nnd the band, a sunrise
salute of cannon or anvils, will' or land in Cook county, but that a
make the dav what it oueht to be, complete abstract of these records
patriotically considered, and some
entertainment of the kind will be
due to the crowd whom we iuvite
to come and expect to bo present
in Hilo to celebrate the day.
Tint Hawaiian Bar Association,
in special session at Honolulu as
sembled, has concluded to have
Attorney Carl S. Smith investi
gated as to his professional conduct
in the trial of Korean murder cases.
The question as to the exercise of
executive clemency in these cases,
10 which all are entitled to an
opinion, has, it is evident, resulted
-. in misrepresentation, the arousing
fa J,f oij professional jealousies and
political animosities. Under such
conditions, facts, seen from a dis
tance especially, easily become dis
torted. For ottr good friends in
Honolulu are plainly trying to read
between the lines in perusing the
court records. There are many and
diverse views on the question of
the punishment of the convicted
Koreans. Not eveiy one in Hilo
will agree with Mr. Smith in the
opinion to which as a citizen he is
entitled, that the sentence ought to
be carried out; but uo unprejudiced
person here where the case was
tried and the facts are best known,
would attribute "unprofessional
ism" to Mr. Smith in the conduct of
this case. What the committee
may be able to "read into" the letter
and "out of" the records remains to
be seen. The facts will show that
charges of unprofessional conduct
have not a leg to stand upon, and
it is doubtful if even au ex parte
investigation by the Honolulu bar,
in which the investigator is at the
same time 'prosecutor, judge and
jury, will be able to make out the
supposed case against Mr. Smith.
The fusion (Question.
According to reports curried over to
Honolulu by Col. Iaulcca on his return
from his tour made in company with
.Governor Dnker, fusion on this island is
agreed upon. An accomplished fact not
yet realized, so to speak, and interesting,
"If true." It was pretty well understood
when they made their trip through these
parts, that the "Col." and the "Gov.",
atnny rate, had "fused." In view of
the report that all the Home Rule pre
cinct clubs have adopted resolutions
opposing fusion It does not appear so
plain that the rank and file In the parties
belonging to an abstract of title
company had been saved, gave
this abstract an almost priceless
value, though that value has con
stantly decreased as the lapse of
time has perfected titles.
In other states and territories
similar interests joined with pure
conservatism to oppose and delay
Happily, in this territory, there
were neither lrrc interests nor too
inert conservatism to overcome.
The reform was one that appealed
to every unbiased man whose
attention could be secured to look
into the matter. No doubt a sort
of indifference aided too, there was
a disposition on the part of some to
feel, "Well, it is said to be a good
thing; it won't do any harm. Let
us try it. If it doesn't work, we cau
It is this spirit that has been
responsible for a none too cordial
support of the law after it was en
acted. The court established under
the law had nothing to do for a
time until some friends of the
system actually put the' law in
operation. But there has been a
steady growth in appreciation of
the system. The work before the
land court has steadily grown in
importance and volume. The
benefit of a Torrens title is being
better and better understood. The
law has vindicated itself. The
Land Court is not now likely to
find any idle time. Honolulu Star.

"I think that I can serve the
community well." Governor
Carter is thus quoted by the Ad
vertiser, and the paper adds:
"Thereby again indicating very
plainly that there has been nothing
whatever in all the outside resigna
tion talk since he has been away1.
The Governor has come back him
self again, and is not afraid to
assert the faith that is in him.
"This is a most delightful com
munity. I think that perhaps it
stands in need of a large-sized moral
injection, but I am not prepared to
say exactly how that might be
brought .about," said the governor.
"But I have seen, since I went
away, a town where no liquor is
permitted to be sold and I have
seen that it is almost au earthly
paradise. That town is Pasadena
and it is the Mecca of the million
aires of the country. They allow
uo liquors to be sold there, and the
people are proud of it. The clean
ness of the town, and its whole-
someness are a revelation. They
cau never tell me, again, that the
tourist and the traveler want places
where they can get their drink.
They do not. Pasadena is tlie
tourist magnet of the United States.
John D. Rockefeller has just bought'
a big lot of land there, and Busch
of St. Louis has a sunken garden in
an arroyp that would be a revela
tion to European princes.
"Redlands, another town where
no liquor is sola, is clean ana

I was astonished to see that even
the hackmen took pride in the fact
that it was a dry town, arid were"

He goes to Pasadena for the broad,
