In ouo respect Senator Clark's
trip to Hawaii is a record
breaker. Considering the impor
tance of bin position in national
affriirs Senator Clark has received
and courted less pompous official
recognition than any American
legislator who has boon to the
country in recent years.

TIIK BOOK Willi A MISHION.
Charles M. Sheldon, whom
Harper's Weekly characterizes rb
"a man with a mission," has set
tho church members by tbe oars
by the thoughts brought out in
bis book "In His Steps; or, What
Would Jesus Do?" The practi
cal themo of tho book is that pro
fessing Christians should take tho
lifo of Christ as an example, and
test their every action by the
question, "What would Jesus do?"
m While tho book is not crodited
with special litorary merit, it has
bad a "wild fire" run in tbe
United States and England, and
has beon translated into ten diffe
rent languages; church societios
aro also organising under tho
motto "What would Jesas do?"
and give prorclee of roaohiug as
much prominenco in religious
fields as tho Christian Endeavor
movement. Somo local attention
has been given tho book, but tho
concensus of opiuion soeras to bo
f. that, as usual in Hawaii, tbo con-
ditious hore aro different, and tbe
! time is not ripo for putting tbe
Tongious lives or mis necic or tuo
woods to tho test of What Would
. Jesu do? it is a good thing for
the enthusiasts of the States to
consider, but tho high sociological
conditions hero fouudod on tho
old Puritanical principles of New
Englaud in the days when witohoB
Vwora Ituriibil in Salem, nud it was
a ein to laugh on Sunday, or do
anything on tho Lord's Day that
flavored of nnvthius: but the
evorpst severity -forettall the
pnu'tiodiility of praclioil up
plicii'loj 11 not u 1 ti id not
'?erus.luin tioU'illwiamliiii', from
a politioil Htumi point, tho
general supposition seems to bo
that tho sole attention
of tho United States and En
ropo is coutercd on tbe action of
tbo powers that bi in theio fow
square miles pnkod up in tho mid
dle of tho Pacific
Among many good people of the
States, however, "In His Steps" is
taken seriously and it is interest
ing, and, if tho word of ltev. Mr.
Sheldon is good, valuable for the
higher religious minds to consider
What would Josub do? if the prin
ciples that tho greatest socialist
expounded did actually, not no
minally, apply iu social, business
aud political life.
It is presumably to bo taken
for granted that Christ would de
mand the ropeal of the contract
labor laws and tho release of the
Galiciuns or any other poor devils
who happened to be thrust in pri
son because tlioy tiud the fulfill
mout of their coutract nioro than
they bargained for. At least he
would not say that ho did not be
lievo iu tbo law, and, when it came
to the question of repeal, decide
that perhapn after all the question
ought not to be brought up.
If Christ had n block of asses
sable sugar stock and nofdeel
money to assist a struggling
church, would ho sell it at n pro
mium and trust to luck that the
man who bought it bad sonse
enough to g-t out from uuder
when tbo stock dropped? Or would
he hold the stock as a mi.tter of
principle and if he couldn't pay
the assessments, "go broke" aud
thus lot tbo struggling church
continue to struggle ?
What would Jphus do if he
owneJ a sugar plantation ? Would
ho sanctimoniously attend church
on a Sunday and pray for the
souls of tho plantation hands
sweating the fields and tho mill ?
Would he hold that it is better for
the laborers to work on n Snnday
in order to supply him with
monoy with which ho might pur
chase tho services of a missionary
to preach salvation that would
eavo the souls of tho Buddhists
aud Sbintoists? Would ho employ
overseers who tell laborers to
"Go to Hell," or would ho seek to
uplift mankind by advocating that
each man sharo in the profits of
If ho wore conducting a nows
papor would bo bold up his handB
in holy horror ovory time anyone
said Prosident Dolo was not tho
reincarnation of George Wash
ington or that the Hawaiian Gov
ornmont is not the boat govern
ment that the world ever saw?
Would ho set tbo government
upon a pedestal and call upon all
men to fall down and worship?
If ho were ruling tbe Hawaiian
Executive would bo sond a special
agent to Washington when the
government bureius wore Buffer
ing for want of funds? Would ho
ubo public monoy to further pri-
vato interests or for tho general
public good? Would ho find
pleasure iu nailing tho ox Queon
to a financial cross because she
coutinuod to dislike the govern
ment? Would ho administer the
Hawaii n government in a man
ner in keeping with Amoricnn
principle or would ho have tbo
Supremo Court file a bill of ex
ceptious ngaiuet tho Newlauds
The Bulletin does not pretend
to bo tho fathor confessor that
shall say What would Jesus do.
This is left to the champions of
bigotry to whom all men are Bin
nors who havo tho temerity to
have nn opinion at varlanco with
tho happy family, to whom might
is right and tho Puritan is God.
Thoy do not believo in Sheldon
and Sheldon does not bolievo in
thetnj their interpretation of
Whnl would Joans do? would
doubtless be theoretically magni
ficent, hnt when it couiea to Whnt
Would You Do? tho proposition
would bo maguificontly different.
