THH "PROPER AGENT."
Mr. Dole has gtcn for publication
tho letter from the President's secre
tary rclatlvo to tho appointment of a
special delegate to represent our offi
cials In Washington. Tho quotation
reads: "Tho President has read your
letter with interest, and requests me
to say that he entirely agrees with the
views theieln expressed, nnd will bo
glad if you will select a piopcr agent to
fulfill the functions to which you re
fer." The "proper agent" whom Mr. Dole
selected was Gen. A. S. Ilartwcll, the
man who led tho forces that sought to
drlvo American wurshlp3 from Hawaii,
by a declaration of neutrality to be
supported by tho known International
enemies of the United States.
This was dona when tho United
States was engaged in war with Spain.
Tho public is glad to know tho char
acter of the man whom Mr. Dolo con
siders tho "proper agent" to represent
him beforo tho President and tho peo
plo of thi United States.
SURPLUS RETARDS PROGRESS
Hawaii always seeks to keep step
with its American brtheren. In dis
cussing tho surplus problem It Is deal
ing with a subject that Is at tho present
time engaging the minds of Wall street
trad causing tho Secretary of tho Treas
ury to weigh as many suggestions ns
docs our own Minister of Finance
Not long ago, Secretary Gage, to re
lieve tho financial situation, paid tho
October interest in advance, thereby
placing ?5,5u0,000 In circulation. This
docs not seem to satisfy. In tho early
part of October tho Secretory was nd-
dressed by a prominent New York
financier who requested that efforts be
made to loosen up tho money market
by releasing tho surplus in the Treas
ury obtained from tho war tax.
Tho Secretary replied that although
tho Treasury carried on that date a
cash balance of $287,000,000, this was
twenty-two millions less than carried
at the samo date tho previous month
und that tho deposits with tho national
banks was a million dollars larger than
the previous year. ,
In bis reply to this statement the
financier demurs as to the wisdom of
the present policy. Conditions which
yesterday justified tho retention of tho '
largo balance do not exist today. Ho
believes that a conscrvatUe policy nt
tho present time, "when every Indus
try Is thriving and tho demand for
money from merchant farmer and me
chnnlc most urgent," "puts a halter
around tho neck of every Industry,
cries halt to piosperlty which Is tho
duo of tho enterprising and tho Indus
trious, and gives unscrupulous manip
ulators an opportunity to cause an ex
horbltant rato of Interest to prevail."
To what olcnt thcao words of ciltl
elsm express the tiuo nlluatlonln Now
York and other American financial
centers. It Is a long range shot to offer
iin opinion from Hawaii. Hail this
financier, however, been writing of tho
condition;! that faces tho people of Ha
waii today, ho could not havo written
more to the point, or better expressed
the sentiments of our local business

without particular benefit to the people
or tho treasury In other words, the
treasury Is milking the purse of tho
business community, hoarding the gold

self a factor In raising tho rates of in

stead of assisting them as It should do.
EUROPEAN WAR CLOUD.
Now York. Nov. 15. A dispatch to
tlio Tiibuno from London, says:
Tho Inacth lty prevailing nt tho Boer
ramp? and tho lull In military opeia
lions on the British side encourage the
London letter writers to look around
and find out whether anything Is hap
pening. Outside of South Art lea they see. a
cloud as largo as n man's hand in
Kushk, where tho Russian troops nro
massed, apparently for n sudden attack
upon Herat. Thcro Is strong evidence,
that Russia Is preparing for fresh ad
vauco upon Herat or for a stroko of
somo kind by which n fico exit Into
tho Indian ocean ran be secured. Some
leading writers consolo themselves
with tho reflection that Russia will not
bring n campaign In Central Asia or
Persia when Japan Is menacing her
with u war In Corea nnd when, nlso,
Germany Is on tho friendliest possible
rchtlotiH with England.
Ihero Is, howoor, no posltlvo evi
dence that Japan Is preparing for war,
and tho attitude of tho German Emper
or toward England Is puzzling, It not
disappointing, to tho English court,
which has apparently been taking too
much for granted. Tho Kaiser Is com
ing to England, but ho has mndo It
clear that he docs not wish to hnvo too
much nuida of his visit, which Is n
