A public treasury with "money
to burn" sounds well, but it's mo

Dewey's all round courage can
not be questioned Mnee the an

without a peer in one line. The
members are all of the same opinion
as to the best course to pursue.
While the British army has just
met the worst disaster in a hundred
years, it isn't every nation that
can stand off a serious defeat to its
arms for that length of time.
Should the Federal government

The Spanish army gives our
navy officers the credit of capturing
Santiago. Spain's navy probably

If Hawaiian representatives call
for territorial legislation first, leav
ing to a future Congress to decide
upon specialties, Hawaii stands a
goal chance of getting out of its
present chaotic woods. The local
administration of affairs since an
nexation is 'a handicap that can be
overcome only by throwing the
"exception" idea overboard.
TEND STRICTLY TO BUSINESS
An inference to be drawn from
the Advertiser's review of W. O.
Snith's position in Washington, is
that Mr. Smith as the representa
tive of the Chamber of Commerce
w.ll find opportunity to dabble in
politics to the extent of offering sug
gestions and opinions which the
Advertiser admits "may not be ac
cepted in Washington."
Whether the Advertiser correctly
outlines Mr. Smith's position we
don't know and don't care partial
I trly. If he goes beyond the bounds
of speaking for the strictly busi
nsss interests, Mr, Smith will find
himself in as bad a box as the "un
official delegate" with many war
records. He will be a second
Paramount sent out of chaos,
whose anomalous and dual position
will only assist in the maintenance
The statement that Mr. Smith is
not a planters man is amusing,
since he was first selected byhe
Planters Association to represent
their interests in Washington. If
he is not a planters man, he must
necessarily be untrue to the trust
placed in him by the Planters As
sxiation While not approving
many of Mr. Smith's opinions, we
da not put him down as a man
who throws overboard the .interests
of his clients. The Advertiser para
graph would suggest that the legal
representative of the'planters seeks
to appear as not influenced by
planter's interests. We do not be
lieve this a correct representation
As the BULLETIN understands W.
O. Smith's position, he goes to
Washington to speak for the busi
nass interests of Hawaii. The
Planters Association and Clumber
oc Commerce have always worked
in unison in financial and industrial
a fairs, and when Mr. Smith was
s !ected by the planters it was ac
cepted that he would also receive a
commission from the Chamber of
Commerce. If, on reaching Wash
ington, the representative of the
strictly business organizations takes'
a hand in matters of suffrage and
general political conditions, he will
find that he is misrepresenting
many who are responsible for his
selection and payment of expenses.
To make a success of the mission,
Mr. Smith must hold strictly to his
As regards the question of fran
chise, which should be outside the
scope of Mr. Smith's mission, the Ad
vertiser "understands" the Opposi
tion will join the Democrats in op
posing qualified suffrage. It can be
stated that if the demand from Ha
waii for unrestricted franchise tends
to jeopardize the enactment of a
territorial bill at the forthcoming
session of Congress, the Opposition
will gladly accept the territorial bill
with its qualified franchise-, trusting
that a future Congress will recog
nize the right and capacity of the
Hawaiian people to govern them
selves under the laws given the
Territories of the United States
The Opposition in Hawaii stands for
the speedy enactment of a Territori
It is to be hoped that present of
ficial circle and its friends will be as
ready to cdncede their demands for
territorial specialties and excep
tions, never before presented to
Congress, in order that the present
chaotic condition may soon be
brought tolan end.
THE HACK CHARGES.
EDITOR EVENING UULLDTIN: I see
the Advertiser Is kicking again about the
charges of the hack drivers. I do not be
lieve, however, that the buffering public
is gouged as much us the Ad ertlber tries
to make out No account Is taken by the
Advertiser that when hacks are called to
vValkiki or anyplace beyond the two
mile limit, the driver, by the regulations,
Is entitled to charge 50 cents for going out,
and then make the additional cliarve tor
the distance which the passenger 1 car
ried. In driving short distances about
town, the hackmen follow the schedule.
When they are asked to wait, they usual
ly mako a slight additional charge, which
Is not unfair, since when the hack Is wait
ing It Is at the disposal of the passenger
and perhaps losing another load. On the
whole, 1 he general public nor Individuals
do not get the worst of It.
General Toral Vlndlcaticl.
Washington, Oct. 29. The Bureau of
Naval Intelligence has made public a very
Interesting document published In the of
ficial organ of the Minister of War at
Madrid nd containing the sentence of the
Supreme Council In the proceedings In
stituted because of the capitulation of
Santiago In July of last year.
The defendants named, besides General
Toral, are the commanders of the outlying
military costs which were included in
the capitulation of Santiago.
The most interesting feature of the re
port Is the fact that the court lays great
stress upon the Importance of the Ameri
can naval forces, and declares that with
out their co-operation it would have been
impossible for the American forces to have
compel.ed the surrender of Santiago.
The sentence of the court concludes by
vindicating General Toral from any cen
sure for the surrender of the city, stating
that be had "used every meins of de
fense required by the laws of honor and
duty, as attested by the brilliant battles
sustained from June 22 to the day of
capitulation, and the many casualties In
generals commanders, officers and privates
miring the battles.
That Snmoan Peace.
New York, Oct. 29. Interesting news
concerning the political situation in Samoa
is contained In a letter received bv a gen
tleman In this city from a from a friend at
Apia. The letter Is dated Oct. 5. and
says In substance that trouble is brewing
in Samoa, and notwithstanding the re
assuring news of the United States Con
sul there It ill come sooner, perhaps than
maybe expected. If the powers do not
get to work very soon and establ sh a
strong Government there wlllbe another
Invasion of Apra by natives' and more
white blood will be spilled.
AUtaaf.i's party has never for an instant
since the advent of that awful farce, the
peace commission, had the slightest Idea
of relinquishing claim to the Government
of Samoa according to the Ideas and In
structions of the commission. Rebellion
still exists and Is growing slowly day by
day. One of these days It will burst
Into a flame again. The German Consul
sympathizes with the Mataafa party as
much as ever.

Porto Rico CeriHUB Taking.
Ponce, Porto Rico, Oct. 25. Census of
ficials ha e been appointed for all the dis
tricts of Porto Rico and the first enumera
tions will be taken between Nov. 10 and
Dec 20. Already the various officers are
busily engaged In the preliminary work
and .they are making every effort and tak
ing every precaution to avoid errors and
to get complete and accurate data.
Full ot Freight.
The Hongkong Maru and Moana will
sail tomorrow for Australia and will touch
at Honolulu. Both essel go heavily la
den with freight, but they have compel
led to refuse freight for Honolulu. Ship
pers are complaining ,of their Inability to

emandof the growing trade with the
Hawaiian Islands. S. K, Oct. 31.
