Aside from the favorable bearing
the recent elections have upon the
policy of President Mc Kinley, they
have also served a good purpose in
relegating two notable corruptionists
to the bad; ground. Both McLean
of Ohio of Goebel of Ken
tucky stand for '.the worst ele
ment in American politics
and the Democratic party. Though
Brvan s principles are principles of
calamity, lie is a man whose per
sonal character cannot be question
ed. Both McLean and Goebel
threatened Bryan's ascendency ill
his party and though the three will
doubtless train together in the na
tional campaign, the nation can
congratulate Itself that the person

The advance shtet of the United
States Consular report of Nov. i
publishes a report from Special
Agent Stwall in which the imports
to Hawaii fo. the first nine months
of 1898 and 'qq are compared.
This stattment shows that for the
first nine months of 1898, our im
ports from the United States, based
on custom house values, was over
200 pi rcent larger than imports
from all other countries. During
the same period in 1899, Hawaii
imported nearly 400 percent more
from the United Stales than from
all other countries. The total im
ports for nine months of 1899 were
$ 1 3,667,374.60 as against $7,360,
580.56 for the same period in '98,
an increase of over $6,000,000.
The statement also shows that dur
ing the nine months of '99 ending
with September, Hawaii's imports
were 552,016,481.79 greater than
the total for the twelve months of
the previous year.
These figures should demonstrate
to the people of the mainlaind that
the annexotion of Hawaii was by
no means a bad financial measure.
The day is not far distant when the
Increased purchases of Hasvaii from
t"ie mainland will more than repay
the 84,000,000 of Hawaiian debts
assumed by the United States.
Furthermore this showing must
indicate to the manufacturers of the
United States, that any colonial
scheme, with a special tariff sched
ule, will simply result in the United
States getting the short end of the
bargain. With a countervaling
duty on Its principal products, Ha
waii would not be able to make
purchases in American markets to
tke amount of thirteen millions of
dollars in nine months.
PACTS ABOUT THE 8UKPLU6.
Anticipation that Mr. Lansing as
Minister of Finance would dispose
of the surplus in order to show his
contempt for the Government is a
view of the situation that is entirely
Up to the present time at least,
tlie public lias been unanimous as
nearly unanimous as the public can
be is asserting fhat thet condition of
the financial market, as well as the
necessity for progress in public
works, demanded a more liberal po
licy in putting into circulation the
large amount of coin lying idle in the
government treasury Members of
the Cabinet were not and are not,
unless there has been a sudden
change of front, unanimously oppos
ed to placing these funds in circula
tion. Minister Cooper has gone so
far as to state that there is legal
authority for placing a portion of
the surplus at the disposal of the
banks. It was only a short time
ago that Minister Damon and pre
sumably Minister King were the
only members of the Executive op
posed to inaugurating a more
liberal financial policy. The sur
plus was the indirect result.of Mr.
Damon's remark to Mr. Dole,
Who keeps Mr. Rowell in office
Mr. Dole, but yourself."
The majority of tlie bankers and
the public are not disposed to accept
the proposition to deposit the sur
plus with the bank's. The people
however do favor and demand that
every dollar of the appropriations
authorized by the Legislature for
public wors shall be expended.
Phis demand is not drastic, nor does
it infer criticism of the Government,
except as the officials assume a
lackadazical attitude in securing its
The marked industrial progress
of the country since annexation has
not only increased the call for
activity in forwarding public works.
It has taxed every administrative
department of the government to
the utmost. What was desirable
yesterday is today an absolute ne
cessity. The educational depart
ment not only finds Itself short of
funds, but retrenching when the sit
uation calls for expansion. School
rooms in Honolulu are crowded to
the limit. Temporary desks crowd
lie rooms, and children have been
urned away for want of accommo
lations. The number of teachers
ind accommodation for pupils can
lot be increased because of lack of
funds, and yet the uublic treasury
contains a two million doll.ir sur
plus. The Attorney General's de
partment is qnite as seriously hed
ged in by the same lack of funds.
With the condition in the education
al department such that it has be
come an object lesson in every
home where there are school child
ren, the people have yet to become
convinced that the Council of State
has not authority to make app o-
priations to relieve the departments
of embarrassment and assist them
to keep in line with the new pro
