NOT THE TIME.
There is n time tor everything
under tho nun. Tlio time to tHo
cush municipal institutions for
both (own nml country districts
in thuso islnmlfl is nny time
timt n nowHpapor writer has
nothing olse of importaucu to ilis
0U88. It is well to have tlio quos
tion (liscttRSPil periodically, bo tbnt
when the country becomes ripe
for such institutions ln mes
therefor will bo well understood.
But a proposition to link the
question with tho details of local
government to follow annexation
to tho United States cannot bo
regarded as other than untimoly.
As this paper has alroady stated,
tho treaty of annexation provides
that tho local affairs of tho isl
ands, town as well as country, will
bo looked after in due form and
courso. It is no sign of superior
wisdom for anybody to apprehend
that the particularly elaborate
community concerns of such a
city as Honolulu will be over
looked by the commission to be
appointod to frame methods of
control of our local affairs
under tho chanced conditions.
There is really no reason,
at the same time, for anti
cipating that local affairs must be
greatly altered in their manage
ment under annexation. With
tho exception of tho separation of
functions that will have become
federal, there is no necessity for
anything like a revolutionary
clinngo iu tho Hawaiian govern
ment. The treaty provides for
ndniis3ion as a territory, but that
fact in no way prescribes a set
form of local government. No
two territories of the United States
have had identical territorial con
stitutions. So Hawaii can surely
be furnished with a constitution
that will not upset all present ar
rangements. In any caso undor
that consideration, there need bo
no fear for the regulation of Ho
nolulu. It may either .be
segregated from tho general terri
torial government or left undor
control of tho authorities for local
administration over the whole isl
ands. Supposing that Honolulu
is to be a belf-coutained jurisdic
tion, however, Hint would uot im
ply that it must of necessity be
come a municipal corporation,
with either high or low voting
franchise for its constituent citi
zone. Washington is tho best
governed, as it is ono
of the most beautiful, cities
of tho United States. Yot Wash
ington is not a municipal corpor
ation. It is governed by a Board
of Commissioners appointed by
tho Federal Executive. What is
good enough for the capital of tho
United States ought to approach
a degree of satisfaction to oven
the most fastidious residents of
Honolulu for their civic govern
ment. Coming whou and how it
does, tho proposition for tho muni
cipal incorporation of Honolulu
under a limited franchise for oiti
zonn, mind you nt tlint rovnnls
nothing other than a purpose to
perpetuate tho admittedly oligar
chical government tit present sub
sisting, the toleration of it mingled
rs it is with a largo amount of es
teem for its heads, but only on
sufferance iu anticipation of a re
union of all tho people undor tho
Stars and Stripes.

Joaquin Miller, tho "Poet of the
Sierras," has gone to tho Klon
dyke, as representative of the San
Francisco Examiner and the Now
York Journal to write up tho
scramble for gold. In one of his
letters by tho way ho says that
himself, in the middlo fifties, is
perhaps tho oldost mun iu all the
four hundred. As an old moun
taineer, however, he will probably
hold his own with the youngest.

Porhaps siuco the question of
the registry of the steamship
China has gone into the courts,
its discussion on the outside

and the petitioner's rights entitle
tho ship to the flag oven tho Gov
ernment will not grieve.
