The San Francisco Bulletin
states thnt rh a result of United
States Consul Jones action instop
ping tho Portuguese immi
grants to embark for Hawaii, the
State Department has iesaed tho
"First, American laws in no
eenso apply to Hawaii, and will
not nutil they (American laws)
have been extended by special act
of Congress. Second, that con
tracts to labor hindo with the Ha
waiian Government, or with its
sanction, are as valid to-day as
before annexation took place."
So far as can bo learned no such
instructions have beou issued from
tbo State Department. No such
instructions beve reached any of
ficials in Hawaii. Tho conclusion
reached by tho Bulletin however
is particularly pertinent. It oars,
"This order by tho Slate Depart
ment is equivalent to tho assort
ion that annexation bus not yet
taken placo. This, in effect, is the
contention of tho Supreme Court
of Hawaii." While the State De
partment has not issued orders as
quoted by tho Bulletin, it is
apparent that tho decision of Ha
waii's Supremo Court is thor
PHOI-'IT AND 1.0HS ACCOUNT.
Tbo anxiety of tho ofliciul organ
for the condition of Mr. How
Duck's pocket book is remarkable
Tbo local govornmeut is requested
to pay Mr. How Duck's bills, for
being shipped back to China, as
speedily as possible and charge it
up to profit and loss.
This conclusion is based on the
wording of a lotter from the Unit
ed States Treasury Dopartment
to Mr. How Duok. This lotter is
merely a statement that Mr. How
Duok cannot draw from any ap
propriation placod at tho dispo
sition of theTroHSury Department.
This letter so far as the Hawaii
an Govornmeut is concerned, has
no particular significance. If tho
Secretary of the Treasury wishes
to have the Hawaiian Government
pay tho bill, bo will say so in uu
inistakablo lauguaga and it is
not likely that his communication
on tho subject will bo submitbd
through tbo Hon. Mr. How Duck.
The Treasury Dopartment has its
agent hero ami it h time enough
for tho Hawaiian Governmout to
act when it receives instructions.
Possibly the government would
be pluneod to pay Mr. How Duck's
bills in order to thus register its
disapproval of American officials
and Americau methods, but where
is tho Hnuai'itii Government to
got its coin for this purpobo ? Has
the Hawaiian Government any
appr.ipiintiori for nmkirig pn sonts
to mluirtd Chinese ? Is the up
prupiixfion f.n Diplomatic and
Consular Bemce available for this
On tho basis of tho Advertiser
contention tho profit, to bo gained
by paying How Duck,will bo con
demnation of American rulo and
tho loss coin.
Tho decision of tho Y. M. C. A.
officers to allow smoking in the
now amusement room of tho As
sociation marks a notable ohango
in sentiment among those scoking
to throw Christian iniluoncos
about the young raon of Honolulu
Tbo time was uot long ago, when
smoking was considered ono of
tho serious sins for which all mou
must repent boforo assured of
comfort in tho hereafter. Many
may oven now say that Christian
workers aro doing wrong in "re
cognizing tho evil."
Tho peoplo bowovor aro fluding
that tho"tbou shall and thou shalt
not" of tho Puritan is not tho prop
er method for lifting humanity to
higher levels. They havo found
that a mnu can break the old blue
laws and still fulfill tho spirit of
tho Golden llulo. They have also
found that tho peremptory cou
sigumont of sinners to an indefi
nite futuro of hell Gro dooB not
tend to incroaso tho number who
gaugo thoir lives by Christian
Tompcranco cannot bo forced
upon men by prohibition. Hu
man nature is so constructed that
it wants and works bard for what
it can't get, and euemies of liquor
and tobncco.Gud that in years past
they havo bogan work at tho
wrong ond of tho line. If tho uso
of tobacco is a sin, man cannot bo
mado to see it by tho abstainers
standing aloof and thanking tho
Lord that thoy aro not as sinful as
This latest move of the Y. M. 0.
A. authorities is practically a re
cognition that if thoir work ib to
roach tho worldly class, tho work
ors must accept conditions as they
are and not attempt to oroato
Christian charaotor by arbitrary
rulings. It is n move in tho right
At a meeting of ex-students of
the University of California in the
offico of Gear, Lansing & Co. last
pvouiuc, plans for the reception of
ex-President Kellogg wore (lis
cusstd. A. V. Gear as chairman
explained that a letter had boou
received from Inspector General
Townsoud stating that President
Kellogg would arrive in tbo Dnrio.
A committee composed of tho fol
lovviut! was nppoiuted to take
charge of tho matter: A. J. Camp
Dell, Y. W. Uriatol, Liewis Uonr,
Ft Sedgwick and O. It. Morgan.
These men will go out iu tho pilot
boat to welcome President Kel
Iol'b to Hawaii. All Berkeley stu

upon tbo arrival or tbo steamer.
Prof. Hosmer of Oahu College,
Inspector General Townsend and
Prof. Ucott of tbo High Hohool
will bo invited to participate in
the reception of President Kellorc,

Charles A. K. Hopkins, tho
young Hawaiian who has been do

of Hawaiian music has just recoiv

Mr. Hopkius' new collection is
certainly a very creditable one
