President McKlnloy's refusal to ac
cept Minister Damon's resignation
gives us a surplus of Ministers of Fi
nance as well ns gold coin.
Tho statement of Minister Young
published In another column, shows
that nil tho money appropriated from
current receipts will bo expended bo
fore March 31. Under his administra
tion tho pcoplo may rest assured that
thp surplus problem will soon bo solved
by tho prompt expenditure of money
in the manner nioRt beneficial to tho
people and ns outlined by tho Legisla
ture. ALASKA BOUNDARY QUESTION.
A correspondent suggests that tho
Bulletin Is unfair to Great Britain In
charging that nation with pigheaded
ncss in the Alaska boundary affair.
The Alaska boundary question Is one
that has been productive of serious dis
cussion slnco tho early part of the cen
tury, nnd as It has thus far proved Im
possible for tho American Commission
ers to convince Canadians that they nro
wrong, wo nro not disposed to attempt
winning tho assent of ourcorrespondent
to the claim that tho United States is
right. Tho clog tn tho wheel of satis
factory settlement Is tho Interpreta
tion of a clauso in tho trcnty made
between llussla and Great Britain in
1825. Tho Interpretation now mado by
tho United States was not questioned
by Great Britain or Canada until gold
was found In Alaskn and Canadians
found It would be profltablo to secure
what they never hnd before, an outlet
on the Bcacoast north of the parallel CO
degrcca 40 minutes.
Tho United States merely claims tho
lights which It purchased from Rus
sia and which Great Britain granted
llussla by the treaty of 1823. The
Americans very properly refuse to sub
mit tho question to arbitration, be
causo there Is nothing to arbitrate,
nothing which two sensible and friend
ly nations should not ho able to settle
between themselves. Our nation nnd
our pcoplo aro unquestionably honest
In the material sympathy offered Great
Britain In time of trouble with other
nations. When our national rights aro
brought Into question, however, wo
gain nothing at homo or abroad by
acquiescing to an uujust claim.
THE $317,000 SURPLUS.
Minister Lansing's statement that
tho actual surplus In the Hawaiian
Treasury on Nov. 1 was only $317,000,
is one which may well causo tho pco
plo to consider tho situation from n
Ah tho Bulletin understands tho enso
and It hns full confldenco in tho
'statements of Mr. Ionising if the Exe
cutive had authorized the expenditure
of all tho monies appropriated by tho
legislature from the "current re
ceipts," tho amount of money remain
ing in tho Treasury would bo $317,000.
Not a sum so largo that it need worry
tho butcher, tho baker or candlestick
maker, to say nothing of tho business
community. With tho knowledge that
the cash surplus, lying Idle In the
Treasury, exceeds tho million dollar
mark thcro Is only ono conclusion to
draw tho Executlvo lias not exerclsod
tho nuthorlty vested In It by the Le
glslature. If not, why not?
Again tho query of the member from
IIllo becomes patent to tho situation
nnd we hopo is not too disagreeable for
tho Executive to answer. , '
If tho Legislature authorized the ex
penditure of money from the current
recelpts.and tho Executive Council had
this money at its command a surplus
in the treasury why has tho Execu
tlvo Council failed to oxpendit7 When
tho business community was calling for
moro money, when monoy was lying
Idle in tho Treasury, when the country
was calling for n progressiva policy in
forwarding public works, when tho
Legislative nuthorlty existed for the
Executlvo to spend this money and for
ward tho work, why has tho Executive
swung In Its easy chair of Indifference
nnd done nothing? Why has tho Exo
cutlvo allowed tho public to believe
that It had no authority to uso this
monoy in tho interests of tho public,
by oxpcndlng It according to tho direc
tions of the Legislature? Why has tho
Executlvo, by Us silence, If not by di
rect nssertlon, allowed tho Impression
to gain ground that all tho money ap
propriated 'by tho Legislature from
"current receipts" had been expended,
nnd further legislative action was no
ccssary to reduco tho "million dollar"
surplus and placo it at tho disposal of
Thcro Is a very slzcablo. difference
between $317,000 nnd $1,000,000 or over.
Tno $683,000 Is sufllclcnt at least to
havo given much relief to tho business
community and havo nccompllshcd not
n little to secure tho internnl develop
ment In which wo aro told Mr. Dole Is
so deeply Interested.
The situation comes heforo tho peo
ple In nn entirely new light which we
trust will bo fully explained.
HARYARD 0, YALE 0
Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 18. In a
whirlwind of excitement simply heart
breaking In its Intensity, tho Hnrvnrd
Yalo gamo on Soldiers' Field this af
ternoon ended without a score. Tho
famous football gnme on tho samo Held
In 1897 had been repeated, nnd Ynlo by
her superb defenso had held the much
boasted Harvard attack ,
Tho contest was n brilliant ono from
start to finish; nnd from tho blowing
of the first whistle to tho sounding of
tho last, tho result was In doubt. Tho
end of tho gamo furnished tho most
thrilling climax of tho afternoon's
sport, when, after ushlng tho ball to
Yale's twenty-ilvo yard lino by Steady
plays, nnd but thirty seconds' tlmo left,
llallowcll, tho Harvard's end, brought
tho enormous crowd to Its feet when
ho dropped back of tho lino for n drop
kick for goal. Two lines crouched, tho
Ynlo men preparing to tear through If
possible, and prevent this last chance
for Harvard's score. Quarteback Daly
called out tho signals; tho lines bent
lower nnd Hnllowell was ready for the
final effort. Not a sound wns heard as
tho ball was put Into play, with tho op
posing rushers crashing together nt the
same moment. Daly mado u clean pass,
and Hnllowell kicked. It was u neat
attempt, but the pigskin sailed just
outsldo the goal postB. Indeed, tho
goal was so narrowly missed that the
Harvard followers went wild In their
belief that five points had been scored.
A few seconds later tho Ynlo men wero
thrown Into paroxysms of delight when
It becamo known that It was "no goal."
Harvard monopolized offensive hon
ors In the first half, but Yolo's defenso
proved Itself amazingly strong, nnd, al
though tho Cambrldgo cloven played
this half with a slight wind nt their
backs, the members of her team wero
unable to force their way over tho
coveted Ynlo line.
Both teams Btartcd tho second half
with a rush. While tho Harvard men
did not.nppenr to havo lost strength, it
wnB noticeable, that tho Yalo men were
moro active. They played with greater
speed than beforo and quickly had torn
down tho field Into Harvard's territory.
Almost the entiro half saw tho play In
Hnrvard ground. Repeatedly Yalo
rushed tho ball down the field, only to
be met with brilliant stands by Har
vard. Twlco Yalo carried tho bal lto
Harvard's twenty-llvo yard line, only
to retreat beforo tho crimson's brace,
Yalo resorting to the rarely been tactics
of taking the ball back twenty yards in
preference to tho risk of losing It on

It Is tho expectation of Secretary Hay

tho Snmoan matter until ho has before
him the text of tho agreement between
Berlin nnd London Governments, nnd
It is understood ho has delayed agree

Thcro Is no doubt that this Govern

by the other powers In relation to Sa
