In selecting n pucceasor to the

tbo nnpoiotmeut of J. A. HuBain-
per a b Minister of tin Interior.
In viow of tbo changes in tlio of

-without eerioUB dehys to .publio
work which tbo lato Minister bad
woll in band, As chief clerk for
many years Mr. Haesinger has
gained a complete knowlcdgo of

certainly more, capable, of assur

any candidate who comes new to
ClIINFHr HTUDENT CEnTIFIOA r,
Since the organ of the Hawaii
an Government has strenuously
nrged that tho Hawaiian Govern
moot pay tbo damages asked by
tbo Hon. How Duck and his com
patriots, we would now bo pleased
to learn who should pay tho dam
ages of those Chinese atudenis in
tb Gat Ho who were refused a
Theso studonts were provided
with certificates, some of which
wpro sworn to before a Hawaiian
official assigned to tbo duty of as
sisting in carrying out tho regu
lations cf tbo United StateB re
lative to Chinese immigration
The certificates were worthless.
Tho Chinese studonts were
refused a landing. Their
$150 for passage and other
expenses must be put down to the
profit and losa account, princi
pally loss. Is tbo distress of
mind and financial Iosb which
theso students suffered any less
heartrending than that experienced
by Hon How Duck.
We also find that tha Hawaiian
official before wbomsomo of those
certificates woro sworn to
recoives no attention
from the official organ, nor is
bis action considered sufficiently
serious by the Executive for them
to withdraw him from further of
ficial connection with tho Chinese
immigration business of Hawaii.
Ho still draws money from tho
fees of a government office al
though ho would have been forced
to roiign from the Custom House
had ho not forestalled such action
by offering his resignation.
Whpthor Mr. Girvin had a legal
right, bb a notary public, to take
affidavits which must of necessity
bo passed upon by the department
in which he was employed is a
matter on whioh difference of opi
nion may bo allowed. No official
of this government or any other
baa a moral right, however, to
render assistance to the Chinese
in any way, other than is express
ly outlined in tho treaty with China
and tho Chinese exclusion laws of
the United States,
Since our officials and their organ
have been so prompt to point out
tho errors of United States officials,
why should they be bo tardy in
recognizing the incompetence of
officials appointed by themselves?
Why should the Executive con
tinue in Government omploy a
man or men whose conduct has
been such as to mako it necessary
to force a resignation ?
In this incident our officials again
demonstrate the laok of executive
capacity and keen discrimination
which assures proper admin
istration of publio offioee.
(Editorial Stn Francisco Chronicle.
Tho admission of foreign-built
ships to Hawaiian register began
as Boon as tbo oourae of the Span
ish war bad made it clear that
Hawaii would be annexed to tho
United States. lhe object of the
owners was to oxebange Hawai
ian for American register ns soon
03 annexation bad been rounded
out. Thero is no precise data on
band as to the number of ships
that followod tbo transpacific liner
China into this new relation, but
the number is understood to
bo fnii ly largo and that of tho
candidates for tho registry prize
oven larger. Enough harm to tbo
shipping interests of tho country
had been nlready done at Hono
lulu to warrant Exooutivo inter
ference at Washington, and this
has now taken form in a Provi
dential proclamation, wherein the
privilogo oojoyod by Hawaii of
taking foreign ships under her
flag is expressly withdrawn.
So far, so good. But it eocms to
us that the general interests of the
United States require a still more
sweeping affirmation of American
law, not only in Hawaii but in
Porto Rico and the Philippines.
Ab yet tho old labor laws ot Ha
waii bold good, with tbo result
that the plantations, which might
afford whito ran a good living on
co-operative holdings, aro being
submerged by Asiatics. We do
not doubt that the President has
tho power to extend our labor laws
to Hawaii, at least pending fur
tber action by Congress. The
general uavigation laws, which
wero applied to Porto llico.should
also be spread over tbo whole area
of our possessions. Nor is this
all. Thero is no senso in main
taining tho old Spanish tariff in
tho Philippines, and that system
should speedly give way to tbo
Dingley act, which, of iteelf,would
go further than almost anything
else to teach tho Filipiuos what
good may be had from Ainericau
sovereignty. Onco let the nativos
exporionco a free niarkot for their
wares in this coantry and open
ports for Amorican produoU and
tbo doligbts of war on tho cinder
ed running track laid out by
Aguinaldo will conoo to appeal so
picturesquely to tbo native mind.
Thero cannot ho too much
Americanism in the governmont
of possessions. At present there
is too little.

From the llllo Trlbune.l
The partisan press of tliB Ha
waiian administration baa, at whs
inevitable, been guilty of many
contemptible things in supporting
a bad cause, but perhipn tho most
contemptible is its attitude toward
the authorities at Washinton with
reforonco to tho rocent land ord
era, and its efforts to interpret
those orders as thoy were ncvor
meant to be interpreted and to
give them a scope which they wero
nevor intended to bavo. When a
Honolulu exchange says that
theso orders mean that the ,13a
waiian Government cannot repair
a road, mond a bridge or in any
other way take an action affecting
the publio proportv. without epe
cial permission from Washington,
it Knows tuat it lies, unci is merely
aotuated by tbo petty spite of its
pnnoipals, who having been de
tected in abusing certain of the
powors grantod them from Wash
ington have boon forbiddon the
farther exercise of those powers.
If the Honolulu Exooutivo ende
avor to mako theso orders an ex
cuse for non performance of their
legitimate duties they will find
that thoy havo mado a sad mistake
and will presently ride in the
hearse of an official funeral pro
cession, in which mourners will
bo extremely rare.

he was handicapped by a bad cold

Head Salesman: "Yes; oh yes. Sterling
bicycle people are to blame for that."
Purchaser: "That's interesting; what
did they have to do with it?"
Head Salesman for P. C. & M'l'g Co.:
"Well, you see, he took the young ladv
out on the Sterling Tandem we have here,
and It ran so easy he thought she was
doing all the work, and the same thing
was passing through her mind. They
both thought how nice It would be to have
things always that way. They didn't
know those Sterlings were to blame."
Purchaser: "Well, I guess you can set
up that same Sterling wheel for me."
Did you know that the P. C. & M'f'g
