FRIDAY, AUG. 10, 18W
British Consul Clipporton nt Phila
delphia pays a high tribute to tho
progress made in tho United States
in the tnanufacturo of everything
pertaining to ships ami armaments.
One of Chamberlain's or Hnotl's
specifics might check the Star's dis
Umper. The proprietors of tho J
favored mcdiciuo would doubtless
-. i.i .1 hi .
pay well for a testimonial from a
Some of the State Governor ap
pear to need gagging more than out-and-out
anarchists. Governor Waito
of Colorado is notorious for inflam
matory speeches. Governor Hogg
of Texas now puts himself on record
u inviting revolution and anarchy
by predicting it in the same breath
with his denunciation of President
Cleveland for taking means to main
tain law and order throughout tho
Union. Probably it was fear of tho
danger, under the namo and forms
of a ropublic, of having a hoodlum
governor which made tho Hawaiian
Constitutional Convention virtually
create a six-years' king instead of a
republican president to got the con
cern fairly launched. "Government
by the people" which has no use fur
tke people iu governing them is the
paradoxical result all the same.
THE APPOINTING POWER.
Spaco In the editorial columns of
the Advertisor is not valuable, as it
devotes a column this morning to
reprinting portions of the Constitu
tion in referouco to the validity of
the present appointments of Judges
of the Circuit Court. We say that
their space cannot be valuable, as, in
tke Bulletin article endeavored to
be refuted, those very sections were
printed at full length that aM might
see tho bearing they would have on
tho arguinonl. Boiled dowu and
tripped of their verbiage the Ad
vertiser's arguments are two in num
ber, as follows: 1. The President's
appointees are legally entitled to
act till thu end of tho first session
of tho Senate. 2. That the power of
confirmation vested iu the Senate is
inoperative until tho election and
convening of the first Senate, and
therefore cannot be ono of the pow
en granted by the Constitution to
the Advisory Council.
Now, it is sufileieut to stale in re
ply to the first of thes arguments
that wo never questioned the legal
ity of the President's appointing
powers, or the powers of his ap
pointees to act until the end of the
first session of the Senate. The
Advertiser has simply iu this case
set up a man of straw of its own to
have the pleasure ot knocking him
down with a flow of self-evideut
With regard to tho second argu
ment we simply say that iu constru
ing any legal or written document
the later sections govern tho first n
to interpretation, and as the section
concerning tho Advisory Council is
numbered 100 iu the Constitution
its language must be held to con
strue, elucidate, eijilaiu or govern
the language of Article 1'i't so relied
oi by the Advcrtioer. Let in see
what it says: "The Advisory Couu
cil of the Republic of Hawaii and
the Executive Council sitting to
gether shall be vested with all the
powers aud authority heretofore
vested in the Executive ami Advisory
P!nnnfltla nf ItwiBAlfl Priiuidtiiimt fiiil.
eminent und also all the powers nud
authority by this Conntilutitin yranlril
to the Senate or to the Legislature."
Note here that we claim, not as
the Advertiser says, for the Advisory
Council alone, but for the Adiisory
and Executivo Councils sitting to
gether 1st, that they have all their
former powers, and 2ndlv, in addi
tion, all those granted by II, h C'ontti
tution to the Senate, and that clearly
confers the right of sesiou and of
confirmation of the President's ap
pointees, notwithstanding an pro
viso in auy previous section, aud
without that confirmation the ap
pointees may not legally act. In
the Advertiser's owu word, "If this
languago does not meau this it has
no ascertainable meaning."
IKFKOVElT liTKEET TKANSIT
Whether an additional street rail
way aystem, aud one with the im
provement of electric motive power,
would pay the promoters immedi
ately, or within a reasonable time, is
a questiou for capitalists to decide.
If any company come forward with
sufficient money to carry out the
work, there should lie no objection
to granting it a franchise. With the
prohibition of running the new line,
for the stretches allowed in the ex
isting franchise, alongside of the old
lino in streets less than a certain
width, togother with such other
regulations as to minimum of trtys
and maximum of speed, the puillfu
suroly would have no objection to
the increased accommodation. Ah
to whether such a great extension of
street railway in Honolulu would
have its necessity proved by a pro
fitable traffiu, before the city grows
touch larger or much more popu-
lous, is a questiou that experience
iu former public improvements
would mako it rather raMi to decide
one way or tho other offhandedly.
There woro croakers enough who
tried to cry down tho electric light
ing of Honolulu, tho utilization of
I ho water supply for driving the
electric motors, tho present street
railway and tho Oahu steam railway,
ltcsults have put their dismal pro
phecies to confusion. Still it must
be confessed that tho presoutly vis!
!lln ourcl,a 0f aronairo for a lorce
extension of facilities of cheap tran
sit are not so great as to form a very
seductive inducement for capital
to undertake such extonsion. Tho
line to the Nuuauu pali, which
is included iu tho project now
being talked up, would have a
goodly numbor of passengers on
Sundays, Saturday afternoons aud
holidays. Other timos its traf
fic, for a long timo to come, could
hardly bo expected to pay for the
power aud tho wear and tear. In any
case, a permanent roadway of great
strength, to resist the fierce torrents
of the rainy season, would have lobe
constructed over the entire route.
This woidd cost something enor
mous. Then it is doubtful if tho
Hues along tho higher lovels of the
city, skirting Punchbowl slopes and
running to the Makiki lots on ono
side and tho top of Xuuauu avonuo
ou tho other, would get ouough traf
fic for many years to pay anything
ou tho outlay, or even to pay running
expenses. Our humble opinion is
that any largo street transit system
which will pay tho Investors, as well
as properly servo the public, must
have for its basis, or its vertebra, tho
two main routes of travel through
the city. It must have the long trip
traffic from tho city to Waikiki aud
to Moauatun on the Hneof King
street, and tho same sort of traffic
between tho head of Nuuanu aveuue
aud the Fishmarket on tho lino of
Nuuanu street. Other lines of street
railway might be constructed, which
iu time would induce the building
up of now waste places, but the
main courses of travel just mention
ed will likely forever be without
rivals iu dousity of settlement,
as they cannot be exceeded iu
direct uess of route between the
four uttermo.U quarters of the
city aud its business center.
Subsidiary routes could bo tracked,
however, which would greatly in
crease lint traffic of the main routes.
These considerations would suggest
the advisability of an effort, iu auy
scheme of street railway extension,
to gain possession of the oxiiitiug
stnel railway franchise, either by
outright purchase or by amalgama
tion of the projected company with
the Hawaiian Tramways Company.
Then extension could bo cautiously
aud by safe degrees carried out.
The present mules would be substi
tuted with electric motors, perhaps
ou one section nt a time. Such a
plan would give tho increased ac
commodation desired at an immense
ly lees outlay than would opposition
lines. It nUo affords a greatly in
creased promise of profit to the pro
moters from the outset. Thorn are
many other merits of a single sys
tem of clump street trausit which
might be urged, but let tho foro
goiug arguments sutlice for tho
present. Nothing should bo left
undone, on the part of tho public,
to prevent such a situation as that
would bo of having two corporations
dividing tho use, control aud abuFO
of the streets with tho Government.

What with btirglaties, prize
fights and sundry othir things
unmentionabltt in an advertise
ment, 1 lonolulu is daily becom
ing more ol a metropolitan
city, As pernicious evils they
should be abated without un
necessary delay in so far as it
lies within the power aud abi
lity of the police dfpartment.
Burglary of course cannot al
ways be prevented on account
of scant police surveillance in
the residence portion of the
city and the peculiar surround
intr of the houses. Even if a
marauder be discovered in a
house his chances for getting
away are good because he can
dodge into the bushes unless a
bullet overtakes him. There
are two remedies for this evil:
an increased police force and
the strict enforcement of the
If there is a law against
prize fighting one or two raids
by the police would probably
put an end to it. If on the
other hand, these men would
be sati.ificd to give exhibitions
of their skill as boxers without
"slugging," the decision of the
referee being based entirely
upon the science of the con
testants, the sport should be
encouraged. The greater
skill a man has in this respect
the less apt he is to resort to
the knife or pistol when he
gets into close quarters with
one who differs with him in his
As to illicit liquor st-lling the
remedy lies in making it legal.
Enough arrests of this charac
ter have been made to con
vince almost anyone that pro
hibition does not prohibit. So
long as a desire exists there
will be ways and means found
to satisfy it, and if a man is
raided four times a year for
violating the law he simply
pays the amount of a license
plus a few dollars costs, besides
giving the police department
trouble in making out a case.
It is just a little bit more
than wonderful what success
the "Pansy" Stove has been
wherever it is sold. Judging
from the number we are put
ting into the homes of people
here in Honolulu, as well as
on the other Islands, it is the
choice of people who believe
in economy. We sell them
without fixtures because it so
often happens that people are
well supplied with cooking
utensils even though their
stove is worn out. When one
buys a stove and fixtures he
usually gets a lot of stuff that
litters up a kitchen. Our me
thod has proven satisfactory to
most people; to those who pre
fer having fixtures we make
the lowest price and they are
not obliged to take what they
do not nred In this way we
satisfy everyone because the
prices are within reach of peo
ple affected by the hard tunes
The Patent Wire Clothes
