WHO SCRATCHED IT?
Wlint microbe of. disaffection, it
is to bo onlorotl, is gnawing at
tlio hvor of tho Star, to mako it
suddouly aBsumo a tono of un
reasoning viralouco agaiuflt tuo
Board of Iloulth ? In its glorifi
cation of Attorney Gonernl Smith's
presidential regime, tbo Star is
not speaking by tbo book when it
says: "Whoa William O. was in
tho saddle there was no entering
in tbo minutes by wholusnlo of
'matter deferred.' " Tho Bulletin
is not attacking Mr. Smith whou
it says, in tho interests of truth
and justice, that every mutter tho
Star now demands immediuto do
termination of has been u "mut
ter doforred" since many years be
fore " William O. " took tho reins
and so continued throughout his
administration. Sevorul other
mattors that need not be named
came forward to harass tho Board
at almost every meeting for years
and -wore only resolved by tho
How of a tide of circumstances
over whioh that body never had
tho courage, while it rosted under
tho duty, of controlling. Food
aud fuel, rations and. pocket
monoy, have be'pn tho subjects of
importunato pleadings from tho
afflicted ones over since tho
Settlement was established. A
resident superintendent would
doubtless have been . appointed
long ago, if tho position was not
otie exceeding in all but disgraco
tho pains of penal servitude. If
matters are in so deplorable a
state as to justify tho unusually
coarHO remarks of tho Star, how is
it that no serious fault has been
found by any of tho several inde
pendent members of tho Legisla
ture's visiting committee ? Such
scurrilous aud heartless remarks,
respectively, as "old man Moyer's
palaver," and "unfortunato, dying
Hutchinson," only sorvo to show
the kind of animal theninanuousis
of a coterie of politicul schomors
is when scratched. All the ques
tion that romains is ns to who
scratched tho critter's hide this
THE LIQUOR COMMISSION.
Evidently tho IIouso of Repre
sentatives considers that tho coun
try has hnd enough of "Liquor
Commission" for n while. And
no wonder. Tho retiring Com
mission nllowed nearly tho whole
timo between tho special session,
atjyhich it was appointed, and
tho regular session to elapse bo
fore it Bet about its work sys
tematically. Its investigations
were consequently conducted with
groat husto and its report delayed
until it was too lato to havo its
rocommondations properly con
sidered. Tho report is oumborcd
with historical details of tho origin
of tho Gothenburg system
of controlling tho drink traffic
in Sweden and Norway; also with
partisan estimates from both
sides of tho results-of the dispen
sary system of South Carolina,
loading to the simple conclusion
that "tho South Carolina system
is still an experiment, introduced
at nn enormous cost," and aB yet
involving tho question whether "it
will not'degeneroto into a political
machine, thereby nullifying its
intended effect." A hundred words
would havo sufficed to justify tho
conclusion in either case where
thousands ore expondod in tho
report. There nro other subdivi
sions of the roport whoro a largo
nraount of condensation might
havo boon dono without sacri
fice of clearness in the grounds of
conclusions or effectiveness of .tho
recommendations mado by tho
Commission. There aro many of
those iccoinmemlulioiiB, such f.
for tho further regulation of tho
legalized and repression of tho
illicit traffic, which ought to havo
received, tho most careful and
doliborato consideration of. the
Legislature Yot, largely no
doubt from tho tardiness of tho
Commission in roporting, tho en
tire results of nil the cloud of in
formation aud suggestion pro
duced dwindles down to tentative
mousuros for oucournging tho im
portation of California wines in
I competition with tho moro fiory
, liquids, and for adjusting mattors
i of the treasury to tho chango in
rovon un receipts liablo to bo of-
footed by that policy. Nothing
' has boon said in tho Legislature
, about tho scandalous printing job
connected with tho issue of tho
CommiMdion's report. Instoud of
having it printed in the regulation
pamphlet form of departmental
and sessional reports tho most
convenient for preserving either
separately or bound up, as many
persons havo adopted the practice
of having done, with other roports
the report of tho Commission was
printed in bill form and only tho
usual edition of fifty copies for
members of tho Legislature
issued. Tho cost of this cumber
some, inconvenient and inadequuto
issue of tho document was at least
$175, as against $95 that tho issue
of 2(50 copies would have cost in
tho regulation form of public re
ports. It was a disgraceful job,
pure and simple, for tho
benefit of one of tho pap-fed print
ing offices. As this paper
suggested, the way to
effect reform in tho regulation
of tho drink traffic is to bring
public opinion, step by stop, up to
a standard where it will be cap
able of having enacted and en
forced measures that will reduco
tho generally acknowledged abuses
nnd evils of tho business ton
minimum if tho vanishing point
bo, as many thoughtful minds in
many countries bolieve, unattain
able. Mixed commissions of ex
tremists on both sides of the
question, producing ponderous
tomes of mere opinions and drv
statistics, will be no more effec
tive in producing tho desired re
sult than they havo proved to bo
in other countries that can bo
specified, where tlioir chief to
suits havo been heavy expendi
tures of public monov, with tho
mnin questions at issue still to bo
decided by tho votes of tho people
after full and freo discussion
npnrt from all other matters of
Au ontirely now factor in the
refunding question was sprung
upon tho Sonate this morning, and
is so important as to
havo determined tho Ex
ecutive to extend tho timo of tho
session. Tho new factor is a pro
position from foreign capitalists to
take up the existing national debt
bearing six per cent' interest in
tho main upon terms that will re
duce tho annual 'interest by
one and fifty- throo-hundredths
per cont. It is a proposition of
great moment not only in tho
saving to bo mado through re
funding, but in its opening tho
way for socuring future loans up
on oven more favorablo terras for
developing tho resources bf the
country. Neither timo nor space
admits of more present comment.

Timely Topiss Last Week's Steamer
1 Sugar planters know more
ways of getting rich than
holding down their taxes. As
. was stated to the writer by an
intelligent observer the othei
j day: "" It takes as much care
and vigilance to run a planta
tion and mill as to run an
ocean steamship. Every little
'detail, every screwhead and
bolt, has to be inspected to
see that nothing goes wrong."
In the matter of saving waste
' and expenses, which is half the
battle for profits, the planters
of these islands have made an
' enviable record.1
The care of their live stock
makes no small amount of the
expenses of plantations, and
anything saved here increases
I the profits as well as a gain in
j the percentage of extraction of
sugar from the cane. In the
j cut above given you have a
view of a 12-foot geared Aer-
motor we have put up at
Kapaa, Kauai, for the Makee
1 Sugar Company. And here, in
Ithe second illustration, is
shown the use to which the
power is applied.
All the cane lops for.feedin?
the stock are cut in this
machine driven by the Aer
moto. The motive power is
also utilized for pumping
water for the animals. One

We have contracted with
the trustees of the Queen's
Hospital to remove a steel mill
(of another make) long ago
erected at the institution,
taking it away as "slops" and
subatituting it with an Aer
motor. The old one has not
given satisfaction', and the
trustees are acting on the
splendid reputation gained
by the Aermotor. Less wind
than it takes to run the Legis
lature will put the Aermotor
in a state of successful revo
lution. While we are talking to you,

calling attention to our fine
