ivaii Tor n visit.
Coubuls in Asiatic cities aro dis
covering that it doesn't pay to in
torpret in&tractiouB from the State
JDopartmont too liberally.
The condition of affairs in tbo
Philippines is full of question
marks. A man who acts with tbo
Dowoy promptness and positive
aesa seems to bo needed to com
maud tbo lnnd forces.
Again tbo Fint California goes
to tbt front. Tbo so'ection of this
regimout for further important
-work in the Philippines is no small
compliment to tbo boys of tbp
golden state. Honolulu aleo has a
good sized fcquml in the regiment.
As tbo consideration of the Ha
waiian Territory bill progresses tb'e
pot schemes of tho olliciuls of tho
llepublic of Hawaii aro tdowly but
Biuoly buried in tbe American
waste basket. Tbe mutter of prin
cipal interest to tbo Bulletin- is
tbe fni't that tho House committee
Iibb wiped out tbe property quali
fications for voters, and tho conse
quent prospect that American prin
ciple of manhood ButTmco will win.
Tbo fact that tho United States
has to consider laws for Porto Hi
co and Philippines is complicating
tho situation. Tho general senti
ment of Cougrofs seems to bo that
if Hawuii is to have a full tcrrito
rial status, the laws provided must
bo the same as those now in forco
in tbo continental territories. If
Hawaii is to havo particular favors
shown her, favors not granted con
tinental territories, then she must
tako hor chances and bo placed in
the same catogory as other insula!
Wbothor tho administration bo
deBires or not it will bo a very
easy matter to block Hawaiian leg
islation in tho Senate as a very
small number of Sonatora bold tbe
balance of power. It is to bo hoped,
however, that Congress will give
Hawaii the present American ter
ritorial dross, striking out tbo spe
cial localisms proposed, and that
such etatus may bo secured at tbe
prcsoat session of Congress.

Manager P. M. Lucas of tho
Hawaiian says tho real tourist tra

year or two ago. Indeed, thero is
next to nono of urstclass tourist
visitation. Many steamer ealoon
passongorB will register nt tho
hotel, only to go right out and look
up cheap boarding houses. Again,
a tourist party comes under tho
nuspices of an agency or syndicate
One of its members wbilo register

Tho tide of tourist travel to the
Hawaiian Inlands, of tbo class that
scatters golden spray iu its course,
is yet awaited. Only an inbuitesi
mal proportion of tbi visitors for
two or three years past has been
of a freely spendiug class. Tbo
bulk of travel makes but few "ox

Well, no, not unless they are CASH
