The Hawaiian National League
seems to bo the only organization
that is driwng riht ahead in lay
ing political line?
It now bohoovns Hawaii to look
about for a" long f fit commercial
want that can be supplied tbo Fhi
lippiues by local industry.
As far ob known, no ono in this
country has announced himself a
candidate for Governor. The peo
pie bavo inodo public their pro
Terences and it romains to bo seen
who will accept.
Tho next popular military novel

building a now battleship to re
placo tho Maine bids fair to bring
into existence- diverse nud sundry

In view of tho ad int m po6i

open saloon door pioblem is
whether tho moo will bo accept

Poor pessimistic Americans,
who talk loudly but are fow in
number, maintuiu that the United
State! is headed straight toward
tho bow wottB, simply bocauso this
big country has discovered that it
baa a few lessons to loam.
Tho editor of theJapanMail nover
published a moro appropriate
truism thau tho statement: "Nice
rules of equity are not applicable
when national interests are nt stake,
and tho doctriuo of expediency is
regarded as of moro importance
than the criterion of roctitudo.
Washington's watchword was
neutrality. Little did tho mon of
thoEO days consider that tho day
would como when tho powers of
Euiopo would 6oek "tho benevo
lent neutrality" of tho United
States. This is what Great Bri
tain gave and all that will probab
ly asked in return.
Common sonso peoplo under
stand tho spirit in which the Star
goes at tho Loebonstoiu incident.
It still remains true that tho only
reason why Mr. Loebonstoiu
should bo relioved of the work now
in hand is possiblo failuro to do it
properly. Therefore, in tho words
of tho prophet, tho Star's conten
tion falls to tho ground.
"With all duo respect to tho in
telligent volunteer oflicer, wo do
not boliovo that tho young men of
the Dnited StateB havo so far lost
their loyalty to their country that
only ninoty-fivo percent of the
present volunteers would respond
to their country's call in event of
war. If thoro should bo an ele
ment of truth iu this statement,
thero are huiiilrals of thousands
of loyal Ynnkees ready to jump
into tho gap when the leadeis call.

is wanted tho hordes of Japanese
are still available. Wo bavo only
to look over tho coal Golds of tho
United States to discover that tho
contract labor law is not a neces
sary handlo to socuro cheap labor.
It is appafent tho Asiatic raco is by
no means tho only ono that can bo
drawn on to fill tho labor gap.
There aro men, womon and chil
dren throughout Pennsylvania, II
linois and Ohio doing work quite
as tryiug physically and at equal
ly small financial return as is ex
perienced by tbo laborers in Ha
waiinu cane fields. If tho planters
need a division of nationalities,
what thoy have to do is to turn tho
tide of Europonn immigration iu
this direction. Such a policy is not
ideal and wo havo yet to bo con
vinced that it is absolutely neces
sary, but it is tho course hold up
as an examplo by Amoricans who
think first of tho dollar and then
tho character of tho citizen.
Tho largo proportion of Asiatics
in tho laboi population of this
country is by no means ideal,
from anything but a financial
standpoint. If thero is a practical
refusal to carry out tho Amorican
small farmer idea on tho planta

turn to Europo, whoro thoro uro

Sir: I seo by a local nanor that

York Volunteors boforo a gouoral
court martial for drunkenness and
absence without loavo. Now 1
havo dono considoialo servico in
United States army and this is
the first case I over heard of an
onlifltod man being brought bo
foro a general court martial on
that charge, unless it was for ro
peated offences or for beiug an all
round hard case. A garrison court
is always considered sovoro
enough for simple drunk and
absence without leavo caso.
Now Mr. Editor I should liko to
know how it is that tho Post Com
mander can couciontiously approvo
these charges, an offonso commit
ted by an onlistod man, and not
tuKo action on a commissioned
officer drunk on dutv and whose
conduct is unbecoming an oflicor

this officer in arrest and prefer
charges without waiting for tho
