Just Imagine some Congressmen wo
know voting for Prohibition In Hawaii.
Agulnaldo could not stick more
closely to his task were ho In training
for a sprinting contest.

It Is not to tho credit of tho members
of tho Historical Society that they al

to bo delayed by "no quorum."
Tho majority of tho division com
manders in tho Philippines havo got
beyond the reach of tho telegraph. An
other hopeful sign of Bpcedy victory.
A good sized leather medal should be
awarded to tho man who can deter
mine, from tho censored despatches,
which side Is ahead In tho Transvaal.
Senator Jones announces' that llryan
and the Chicago platform will rule the
Democratic roost In 1900. This fore
shadows on easy road for McKlnley's
Charles M. Popper writes In Hnrpor'a
Monthly that "Cuba Is In suspension,
not transition." Thanks to local ofil
clal wisdom, Hawaii might well say
"Mo too, Cube."
Minister Damon paid his own ex
penses, so tho public can rest assured
that In his action while abroad ho fol
lows tho dictates of his own conscience
and follows tho suggestions of the
President without hesitation.
Had a local government representa
tive got the newspaper send off award
ed tho petitioning temperance advo
cates who want prohibition In Hawaii,
tho claim would bo mado that tho
whole thing was Bcttlcd.
The first wireless telegraphy com
pany of tho Mainland starts In nt a
million dollar capitalization. Whllo
Hawaii's scheme lloats at one-tenth of
that figure, tho millionaire aggrega
tion can't claim a superior service.
REAPING THE HARVEST.
It Is nn Interesting nnd uppropriuto
coincidence that tho twelfth anniver
sary of tho extension ot tho Recipro
city treaty for seven years nnd tho con
cession ot Pearl Harbor rights to the
United States should fall, this year, ou

Twelvo years ago today the United
Stated strengthened Its nlready power
ful claim upon Hawaii, secured a foot
hold on Hawaiian territory and guar
anteed tho continuation of tho com
mercial benefits which must eventually
-sult In our governmental stability
and general prosperity. Tho beneficent
Influcnco of this stability, and this
prosperity Is felt In every homo of tho
country. Thanksgiving finds Hawaii
with n full larder and tho peoplo ap
preciative of tho blessings showered
upon them by n kindly Providence.
They nro today reaping tho bountiful
harvest which Iho farscolng and fore
handed statesmen ot tho nation prepar
ed In former years.
'A WORD TO THE OPPOSITION"
Tho leal Opposition In Hawaii Is tho
opposition to tho speediest possible; en
actment of full territorial legislation
for these Islands. This legislation is
tho proposed bill framed by thoso emi
nent Commissioners selected by tho
President of tho United States repre
senting tho two legislative bodies ot
tho National Congress and tho two po
litical parties of tho American Union.
. This Is tho real Opposition, It is tho
opposition nnd tho only opposition
feared by tho friends ot Hawaii in gon
oral, and by Messrs. Cullom, Morgan
and Hltt In particular.
Tho necessity ot presenting an un
broken front for 'tho enactment of tho
Commissioners 13111 nt Washington has
been generally recognized in Hawaii.
If tboro has been any faltering, any
paltering with this proposition, it has
not been tho fault of tho Dullotln.
Distrust of tho President's Judg
ment In selecting tho supreme official
4jf the new territory has a familiar
sound. It will bo found elaborately set
forth In the minority report, of a col
lcaguo of Cullom, Morgan and Hltt, not
Joined In by any other Hawaiian mem
ber of tho Commission.
We do not think wo nro misstating or
misrepresenting tho situation when wo
say that tho disposition of tho minor
ity report made by tho American Com
mlsslonerB Is flnnl so far as Congress
Is concerned. Further discussion Is
now worso than useless.
CHANGING SCHOOL. HOURS.
Tho proposition of changing tho scs
slon hours of tho public schools is ngl
tatlug tho minds of tho mothers of tho
hamlet moio than tho election returns,
the results of wars or what Congress
will do with Hawaii. Whether tho
schools shall begin nt 8 a. m. Instead of
nt nlno and close at 1 p. in. Instead of
two has been submitted to nnd will bo
determined by tho mothers.
Tho Hoard of Education Is following
an cqultnblo course in reaching a de
cision. The solution of tho question
rests with tho parents. It they do not
express their opinions they cannot
Justly crltlclso tho directors of the edu
Tho mora experienced teachers are
disposed to argue that they can accom
plish moro for tho pupil In one morn
ing hour than they can In two during
tho afternoon. Tho mother with bIx
clldrcn to get ready for school often
replies that tho teacher wants more
time In tho nftornoon to devote to per
Tho mother who cannot afford ser
vants and has to begin work nt day
break In order to have her children
ready for an 8 o'clock School session,
can see no lenson why tho school hours
should bo changed. Too often a
thoughtless educator answers that tho
mother docs not .dlsapprovo of long
school hours been u so sho has the chil
dren off her hnnds for a longer time.
Neither the parent nor tho teacher
has reason to charge purely selfish mo
tives in tho grent majority of homes
or (schoolrooms. In tho homes of the
well-to-do, whero servants nro numer
ous and the labors of tho household
consequently light, tho conclusions of
tho pedagogue meets with distinguish
ed consideration and approval. In the
homes whero tho mother does tho
housework homes whero children are
usually moro numerous tho mother
sees In tho fulfilment of tho teachers'
Ideal, an additional weight on her al
ready overburdened shoulders. Tuken
as a whole, tho poorer peoplo have
moro Interest In their children's educa
tional welfare as regards tho public
schools, than tho wealthy. It tho lat
ter do not approvo of public school
methods, private schools or prlvnto tu
tors are not beyond their means.
When rendering their answer to tho
Hoard, It behooves tho parents, ablo to
view tho subject from tho teacher's
standpoint,' to remember thnt the ma
jority of school children como from
homes In which an eight o'clock school
session means hardship.
