Hawaiian expansion is a euro to

Tho morning organ still worries
over its African blunders. Al

Tbo men who withdrew from
purchasing bonds on account of
"legal questions arising" will
probably live to soo tbo day when
thoy will wish tboy had not boon

All mou aro mortal. Nothing
bo fully impresses this fact upon
tho public mind as sorious dif
ficulties arising in tho churches.
Yet thero remains tbo assurance
that nil things work together for
AVhon tho individual soldier
learns tbat tho health of tho camps
depends nuito as inucb on strict
obedience to orders as tho strict
oversight of commanding officers,
tho probloms brought out by tho
war will be settled.
Whilo tho government is going
nhead with tbo public improve
ments tho now park should not bo
slighted. Thero aro childron in
this city who will assist in pay
ing for this improvement and if
thoy are to gain any benefits, the
work should begin now.
No small portion of Hawaii's
population pays its rospects to tho
Emperor of Japan todny. No
portion of tbo American nation
has a better acquaintance with or
a highor appreciation of tho pro
gressive spirit of tho Japanoso
nation than tho citizens of 11a-
Although Murat Halstoad has
not beon hoard from, it is a uot
nblo fact that nearly all Amer
icans returning from the Philip
pines are firm in tbo belief that
tbo United States should maintain
sovereignty ovor thoso islands.
Tho conditions aro not idoal. Tho
olimato is bad and tho peoplo aro
ignorant, yot tho humanitarian de
mand upon tho United Statos in
this instance is no less positivo
than in Cuba. Barbarism is in
ovidonco at overy turn, and tbo
moral duty of tbo United Statos is
as clear as tbo light of day.
Foroign nations are warned that
they should walk warily as hopes
and fonra bavo beon arousod in
China that can only bo quonched
with blood unless master
minds, with full knowledge of
conditions aro in control. Chin
eso opinion is gradually contoring
about tho poles of liberalism and
conservatism. Tho former take
to westorn customs, are progres
sive, and tho lattor stand by Con-
Tfrrciotis-aml iilive in tho pasfr"-
Givon timo, onlightonraont must
conquor, as a ay accompanies tho
sun. "And this will bo tbo case
whethor China bo or bo not divid
ed into spboros of influonco and
finally absorbed by European
powers. If she romain independ
ent, tho process will bo slow: if
dividod tho advnuco will bo bv
leaps arid bounds."
Tho childron of ktoday aro tbo
citizens of tomorrow. It behooves
tbo govornmont to act promptly
on all moasuros tbat will servo to
uplift and mako hotter tho lives of
thoeo coming men and womon.
When tho Legislature baa givon
absoluto diroctious regarding park
privileges far tho childron of tbo
orowded sections of tho city, tbo
pooplo can soo no'oxouso for delay.
Tho oommorcial spirit that gets
roads, wharves and laud surveys
should not domiuato everything.
Improvomont in moral conditions
is really ffr moro important than
prog r 088 counted in dollars and
CHINA AS IT IS.
An oxprcssion most frequently
used in argutnonts on conditions
in Hawaii is "the situation is pe
culiar." It appjara, howovor, that

ColeaUul 3 qtij iro very foroibly
calls i. wh i jr, writors for British
maga.5i.rv i it teeir luok of appre
ciation of ao tiuo couditions in
tbo Chincso Empire. Ho says
these writors think thoy havo
sounded all tho probloms of China
and eottlod thorn up-to-date, and
in this respoct thoy show an ovor
recurring mouumontal ignoranco.
" For China," sayB tbo British
editor in Shanghai, "is still a land
of contradictions, a land of vast
proportions, a land unknown, ex
cept superficially, to tbo Westorn
nations, a land without a police,
without a Sunday, a land of cruel
ty and kindness, of rampant ugli
ness and ro lined beauty, of hones
ty and fraud, of progress and re
trogression, a land of topsy turvy
doom tho land of contradictory
qualities, and nature insorutablo.
"Politically, China !b at tho

an unfathomablo abyss. Hor

years a past which taken all in

is threatened with oblivion.
Thoir hopes for tho future, which
only a short month ago had taken
such a rosy tint, aro dashed to the
ground. Thoy aro no longer hopes,
although tboy aro Btill rod red
