Let the average citizen get into a
friendly boxing match of twenty
five rounds and lie can better ap
preciate the degree of scientific
training of which the Jeffries-Shar-key
contest was a severe teM.
W. N. Armstrong retires from
editorial duties in the spirit usual to
men who take up newspaper work
as a side issue. The trained news
paperman puts his paper first and
his own personality last. His high
est ambition is that his paper shall
gain success. If his efforts have serv
ed to assist in the success, he is
.satisfied; men may come and go but
the paper goes on forever. Per
sonally Mr, Armstrong is a good
fellow and the heart burning he has
suffered from people differing from
his opinions is doubtless equ illy ba
lanced by the fun he has got out of
his newspnrtr comment.
LEASES BLOCK THE PUBLIC.
Discussion of the location of HiIo'
new postoflice building turnishes the
people with an object lesson on the
government giving long leases to
public land. While Hilo citiens
were unable to decide unanimously
on any location, the first, second,
third and fourth choice was each-ot
a site on government land leased to
Mr. Severance. As the reader fol
lows dovv.i the list and notes the
committee's statement that .Mr.
.Severance will allow the use of the
land by the government, at a price,
until the expiration of his lease, the
impression is given that Mr. Sever
ance has control of the most valua
ble public property in the town of
Mr. Severance unquestionably
has a right to charge a price for the
use by the people of property leas
ed from (he people. Minister Young
is also following a proper course
when ne rtfuses to use any part of
the Hilo postoflice appropriation to
pay rent for public property. The
result, however, is that the Hilo
postoflice will I e located near the
waterfront, and as the town in
creases in she, will be steadily
forced away from the center of pap
ulation. The people may well view with
satisfaction the compulsory cessa
tion of leasing public lands by the
present officials, and the guarantee,
that, under Territorial rule long
term leases will not be allowed.
Here in Honolulu, the increased
traffic has brought forcibly to the
attention of the people the short
sighted policy of the Executive in
granting long term leases for proper
ty close to the waterfront. Grant
ed that the property is bringing
larger returns than ever before, al
so that the improvements made by
the leaseholders are valuable addi
tions to public convenience at the
present time, the fact remains that
the further increase of traffic will
demand a much larger waterfront
space for public uses. Unless all
indications fail, the day is not far
distant when Honolulu will consider
as Hilo has considered the advisabl
Jityiof paying rent for public pro-
iperty leased to private citizens.'

Washington, Nov. 3. Tho dinicnltlcs
attending the administration of justice
In Cuha and Porto Hlco nro pointedly
drought out In rcpoitu to tho Advocate
General of tho Army, General Llehcr,
whoso annual repoit was mado public
today. Major Dudley, at Havana, states
In tho couiho of a leport:
"Tho present situation licio has no
e.act pieccdent In that during a tlmo
of neaco wo r.ro In tcnipoiary military
occupation of n friendly tcnltory, not
our own laml, pledged to diBchnrgo the
obligations that may under Interna
tional law, result from tho fact of such
occupation lor the protection of Ilfo
and property, and to withdraw from
tho Island ho boon ns a stable govern
ment of its own shall bo established.
"Tho opposition to a complete
rhiingo of tho spirit, methods and
technicalities of tho Spanish Jaw, as
now uinlntnincd In the system of 'In
communicado' for example, Is especi
ally surprising. Hut though slow In
coming, the assei tion of such pcisonal
rights and liberties as are nlready en
Joyed by Amei leans under American
law will como sooner or Intcrf as be
ing esseutlnl to a free, self-governing
people, sin.li as tho Cubans dcslio to
J, Dunn, Judge Advocnto of tho De
partment of Santiago and Puerto Prin
cipe, makes similar observations, and
hub: 'The supreme law on tho Island
of Cub.i is that of the supremo power,
the United States, and will ho so long
ns nn AmcrUan icmnins hero under
existing conditions, bo that for ono
month or foroer."
Major Sharp, Acting Judge Advocnto
of Porto Rico, icvlcws tho manifold
dlfllctilties in dealing with brigandage,
the complex customs relating to mar
ringo and dlvoice, tho crowding of jails
with men, women and children who
literally rot whllo Justlco pioccedsnt
snails' pace. Ho says every substan
tial leform lb eageily received by tho
people, tho opposition coining from
the small conservative eloment. Ho
deprecntes tho premature withdrawal
of this Government and the establish
ment of n territorial form of govern
ment ns Bomo of the Porto Illcnn news
papers demand, and savs it would he
tho most unfortunate mcasmo that
could possibly befall tho Island. He
Jadds: "Continued military control, for
a reasonable time, aided by wise ad
visory councils, cannot fail to secure
gradual but steady and ultlmnto assi
milation by tho people of our best
American thought and methods of ad
ministration." CONSIDER NEW P088ES8I0N8.
Washington, Nov. 3. Tho 'cabinet'
meeting today lasted two hours, much
of tho tlmo was spent in tho reiullng

A question of civil government for
Cuba also received attention. The ne
cessity for a chnngo from tho present
military system, it is said, becomes
moro nnd more nppnrent and the Presi
dent is waiting only until an entirely
suitable poison ran be found before
tailing action In that direction.
