MONDAY, OCT. 10, 1899.
James A. Kirjg, Minister of the
Interior, nows of whose nccidontal
death wbb recoived this noon, was
held in the highest esteem by
every citizen of this country.
Tho highest tribute that can be
offered any citizen comes from tho
heart of tho people of Hawaii
He was an honest man.
A MUNICIPAL UUKSTION.
"Whon an ncorecntion of
lived Japanese, whoso respect for
woman is represented by an exis
tence secured by the earnings of
prostitutes, combine, to run Hono
lulu and blackmail Ihercspcctablo
Japanese, it is about time these
beast were oot only run out of
1'auahi street but out of town as
well. Hawaii is pretty thorough
ly Japaned but wo trust it has not
reached tho stage where a gang of
blackmailers rcpresen.ing the
lowest otder of humsnity can ac
complished anything but their
own undoing by moans of threats
Now that tho "social ovil" pro
blem has come to tho front aain,
it should be dealt witb, as it must
' j erf or co bo dealt with in the near
future as an exclusively municipal
question. The timo is soon com
ing when tho administration over
theso houses of ill fame will bo
determined solely by the city cf
Tho territorial law, which is an
ticipated will be enacted by Coc
gaoss duriDg tho next Bix months,
provides for the organization of
town ami city corporations. It is
in the organization and adminis
tration of these city and town
governments that the political
forces of the 'territory will be
centered for years to come; in the
proper organization of tho muni
cipal governments will largely do
pend the benefits of annexation,
the power of corruption or tho
power of honest government.
Oar parties will form on national
linos, Republican and Demoorat,
but the real political work for
good or ill will come, not in na
tional affairs. Hawaii's influence
in national politics will bo prac
tically nil. It will have no vote
in Oongress and will figure in no
oleotions but those of the local
cities ' and towns and the local
With the United States Con
gresB to bo in session within
six weeks, we find Hawaii
and Honolulu in particular
drifting along with absolutely
nothing done in tho way of dis
cussing or determining the char
acter of our local municipal gov.
Aside from tho moral problem
involved, if this bulldozing cam
paign of tho Fauahi street pimps
results in awakening (be people
to a discussion of prospective
municipal problems Bnd how best
to meet them when the first city
charter is drawn, it will not be
without far reaching and bone,
fioial effeot. Honolulu, not tue
national government nor tho terri
torial, will have to deal with the
"social evil." It will rest with
tho fnturo munioipal counoil to
xninimizo tho evil or strengthen
tho power of tho proourers who
visit respeolablo oitizens armed
with clubs and voioing throats.
Tho first return of the move
ment to give Pauabi street a fair
degree of respectability brings to
tho front tho moat damnable char
acteristic or tne "sooiai ova" as
it exists in-Honolula today. Able
bodied, lazy, low minded louts
known as Japanese men aro living
on the earnings of women treated
like so many animals. The first
move should be made against theso
projorora. Compared with these
men, tho fallen women aro monu
ments of virtue.
To minimize tho wrongs to
whioh thoso women aro subjected,
the people of Honolulu cannot do
bettor than to accept the situation
as it if, recognizo tho evil, deal
with it as is dono in Japan and as
San Francisco is now attempting
to do If theBO women cannot be
protected from tbomsolvos they
should at hast be guarded from
beastly reprobates who livo off
With tho prospect of several
thousand men being permanently
stationed in ai my barracks near
Honolulu, the shipping of tho
poit constantly increasing and
bringing with it tho assured in
creased prominence of tho "social
evil," tho pcoplo cf this city can
not afford to publicly bewail the
siuB of mankind, preach, theorize
but do nothing. While men livo
who crush love and respeot for
pure, womanhood under the heel
of pasbioD.thero will bo prostitutes.
Tho sooner tho people stop theo
rizing tho better.

Four hundred tons of rook bal

The ship is making ready for
sea although it is not yot known
when sbo will bo able to sail.
The Antiopo must remain Inre

Several firms in Honolulu have
offered to buy tho Ant'opo, but

against her, on the arrival of the
America Maru from tho Coast.
