It is a notable fact in American
politics that vory often so-culled
"good government" orgiinizatioLB
are backed by the most arrogant
political bosses, who havo failed
to get a placo in regular organizations.
Some of tho Now York regi
ment boys havo lessons in cour
tesy and common decency to
learn. White the officers are in
duty bouud to tako soriuus notice
of tho outrages committed by
some of tho men, thero ought to
be a display of power amoug the
soldiera themselves. Thero ought
to be, and o believe thero is,
enough of the spirit of respoct
nblo manhood among tho major
portion of tho boys to put n
damper upon In tendency of any
small lot of mon to commit ex
cofses. Tho pooplo of this town

Are the "bys in tho run Its" going
to allow this? Wo Imliovu there
are too many men in tlio rank
representing c,ood homos to let the

Wo doubt vory much whether tin

Evangelical Association rcdivn

attoutiuii which tt merits. Ttiu nu
mini ropnrtjuitiosutHlis a valuable
and iutoroating document, but it is
fair to preoumo that uot more
than eight out of tou of the buai
u ss men of tho country will give
tho report careful porusal.
The year has shown progress in
all departments, but tho uei-ess j
of tho hour Eeoms to bo equip
mout to turn out a moro advanced
native ministry. The Ilawaiians
nro cortniuly making the best of
what is placed at their disposal.
With tho progress of the country,

In this connection tho North
Pacific Missionary Institute do
innnils tho ntte.,tion of the God-
fenring business man ns well ns
tho philanthropist. Tho princi
pil of tho Institute says: "In tho
present changeful condition of 60
cicty at tho Islands, industrially
nud politically, it is difficult to
forecast tho future. Rut whatover
futuro conditions, it is certniu that
for tho present, thero is urgent
uoed, uot only of maintaining tho
Iustituto in its special work of
training a uativo ministry for tho
Hawaiian churches nun mission
fields, but abovo and boyond this,
more mlequnto provision must be
nindo for such advnnced instruc
tion nnd training ns tho now times
domnud. Tho entiro nbolition of
vernacular schools, tho rudimon
t'tiy character of tho public school
instruction in English, the con
tliciiug interests of different sects
and nationalities, domand in tho
Hawaiian ministry a fuller equip
meut for thislscrvice.
Another associate in the work
of tho Institute writes: "It is
ovident that the school should be
bolor equipped for its work. The
crisis haB already boon reached.
Tho work of tho past year has
suli'ored from defective classifica
tion of students and lack of teach
ing forco. If no change is made,
tho loss next yenr will bo even
grentor. Tho mou who nro now
applying for admission nro the
choico young men of tho couutry
graduates of Knraijhnraohn and
Lahninaluna schools. Tlio natural
effect of their coming will bo to
draw others from the samo schools.
T) what extent this will bo true,
will depend much on what those
first young mon dorivo for them
selves. If thoy can bo effec
tively trained and inspired for n
noble hfo's sorvice, tho effect will
bo contngious and poworful. But
if they find in tho Institute au
oquipment interior to that of the
sohools which thoy havo loft, nud
fail to get the instruction for
which thoy are fitted, thoy ennnot
bo oxpected to show much enthu
siasm for it or to bo nuxious to
bring others into it."
While tho business men of tho
street are not supposed to be ac
tive miH-ionnries, tho religions
conditions among Ilawaiians
ought uot to be foroign to their
thoughts. Thoro nro mighty fow

A Tokio d-spatch to tho Co

tmil tlio epitome of Secrt lurj
