Whatever American shortcomings
Hawaii may hae been no one can say
that tlib newsboys of the city arc not
schooled In the (list principles of
Thanksgiving Day, ns It appeals to the
young American citizen.
The piofound rfrofundlty with which
tho authority of Hawaii's future gov
ernor Is being discussed should bo pre
served In book form to nsslst In the
compilation of a high school gradua
In Its comparisons between the na
tive Hawallans and the negroes of the
South, the Advertiser Is digressing
from nn apparent tendency to broader
Americanism and creating plenty of
material that will como In handy for
uso against Its branch of the annexa
tion party, when tho local elections do
take place. Tho newcomers do not tako
this view of tho native Hawallans.
Why should the Government party lead
All that Is necessary for tho pres
ent time Is to establish tho fact that
the people of Hawaii have been stead
fast and honest In their belief that the
privileges ns well as the responsibili
ties of the American constitution were
extended to Hawaii when Hawaiian
sovereluntv passed out of existence by
vlrtuo of the New lands Resolution.
Tho Bulletin cannot fall to express a
sense of gratification that tho views ex
pressed In these columns have lecelved
an endorsement, the exact tenor of
which cannot be questioned. Tho ef
forts of Counsellor Gear, at, ono tlmo
made the subject gay buffoonery, now
have a different appearnncu to those
who could not or would not' hee the
more magnificent chaos toward which
tho "transition period" was leading.
Tho death of Vice President Garrett
A. Hobart removes fiom tho oflklol life
of tho nation a man of strong naracter
of marked ofllcial Integrity. Mr. Ho
bart first came Into political promi
nence through his i-lforU In purifying
tho political utmospheio of Now Jersey
and always held himself in teadiness
to do tho bidding of the peop c. As
Vlco President ho was not only a
staunch supporter of tlio President, but
nn able assistant In securing spetuy re
cognition of tho Administration's de
sires. Ofllcial association beeamo a
personal friendship. No Vlco PjcsI
dent of recent years has fulfilled the
duties of the otneo with gieator tatis
fnctlon to official associates and the pco
TUB NEWSBOYS LETTERS.
Tho symposium of nowsboy letters
given In another column Is interesting
reading and by no rnoanB reflects dis
credit upon our public Bchools. Con
sidering tho ago of tho boys, tho cor
ners of tho world from which their nn
tccodentB spring and tho pigeon Eng
lish that Is tho universal language of
the btreet, the Honolulu newsboys will
coinparo favorably witli members of
their fraternity In tho average Ameri
can city. Tho letters nro given vcrDa
tlra and while tho Chlneso express Anglo-Saxon
Ideas In their own peculiar
way, they aro more prompt to "make a
try at it" than thoso better versed In
the vernacular of tho English speaking
brotherhood. Tho method of tho Ori
entals in expressing their thoughts also
convoys some Idea of what tho teacher
in our public schools has to wrestle
with, and why It Is that In tho advanc
ed schools, one of tho requirements of
admission Is ability to speak English
correctly. Tho penmanship In each of
the letters Is particularly good, better
than that of the averago lawyer's brief.
Honolulu has reason to bo proud of
Its newsboys. The majority of them
are bright, hardworking youngBters, ae
well behaved ns the average nnd enpn
bio of adding money to their private
treasure', which, It not needed particu
larly In the household, gives tho young
man a knowledgo of the value of money
I which will prove a benefit lit future
Now the question arises, Had Minis
ter Damon submitted his resignation
to Mr. Dole, would he hao accepted It?
The chances nio that, acting under tho
Impression that tho Piesldent disap
proved of Minister Damon's mission he
would have allowed Mr. Damon to re
sign. On account of the probable
course that would have been followed,
Mr. Damon showed wisdom In
presenting his resignation to hcadquor
tcis and not stopping to quibble over
whether the source of authority Is in
Honolulu or Washington.
On lecclvlng assurances that Mr. Da
mon had abandoned the feature of his
mission which placed him as practi
cally a government official working for
private Interests, It Is quite nntural and
highly satisfactory to out- people that
the President should l of use to allow
.Mi Damon to withdraw fiom Hawaii's
official life. Until Congress has acted
or refused to act, tho President Is In a
measure forced to retain In office tho
men through whom tho transfer of
sovereignty was made. Our people saw
tho first evidence of this when members
of the Legislature and Council of .State
ucio authorized to continue In office
until such tlmo as the President might
bee lit to release them. It Is again
brought forcibly to public attention by
a request thnt tho Minister of Finance
stay by his post until Congress pulls
Hnwnll out of chaos.
Wo say tho President Is In a measure
forced to retain these officials in office,
and, knowing McKlnlcy in his public
career as n kindly nnd thoughtful man,
wn bellovo ho concedes to tho Execu
tive, .ludlclnry and Legislative bran
ilus of tho Hawaiian government n
right to the honor nnd lcspousiblllty
of Inaugurating tho new leglme, what
ever that may be.
This was the policy outlined by the
Commissioners when here, and a
change has yet to bo noted In their
public or private utterances so far ns
known. Tho President's action from
tho outset has been .consistent nnd
friendly. If tho friendship hns been
abused, the tlmo for counter-action Is
not on the ce of an Important session

There will be nuotbei ball In the
Lualtnna hall this evening. A lnrge
number of masquerade will bo pres
ent. General Clprlano Castro, the new
President of Venezuela, Is only thirty
six years old, but ho has been In poli
tics for n long tlmo. Ho was ulwayB
one of tho warmest supporters of the
Liberal party, and took part In the war
of defenso during tho revolution which
was led by Crespo. That general did
all he could to lnflucnco Castro to his
side, and even offered him n portfolio,
but Castro could not bo persuaded to
tako It. President Castro Is a. highly
educated young man and a hard work
er, but ho is hampered with that ex
plosiveness ot character which Is tho
greatest handicap to the Latin race,
