Admiral Dewey finds that n generous
public has put him In r. glaBs house
simply for tho pleasure of throwing
stones at him.

When tho censors shut down with o
quislto completeness on exciting news
from tho Transvaal, tho news associa
tions fill in tho gap with tho announce
ment that Russia has occupied Herat.
When this occupation become.") a fact
tho Trnnsvanl fight will dwlndlo to In
significance. This is the day of Hawaii's second
start on tho Congressional raco course.
With McKlnley for a trainer and Cul
lom to handle tho beast, Hawaii ought
to bo reasonably euro of winning In
fast time. Tho only danger is tho pos

Tho frontier British heroine li-w

postmistress of the town of Lady Gray
not only held tho fort In her office,
against a party of Bcois, but replaced
tho Doer flag with the Union Jack, and
tore down tho Boer proclamation t
annexation, replacing it with tho Gov

Tho Boers retreated. Think of tho
poetry this will Inspire.
In the discussion of hating the pub

Notwithstanding somo of tho contri

tho Admiral's picture to tho wall, be
cause ho considered his wlfo deserving
of adoration, Admiral Dewey has yef a
host of friends remaining. A wealthy
New Yorker has volunteered to cash all

tho number who considered recalling
their subscriptions is becoming beau

COMPLETING PUBLIC WORKS.
According to all indications tho
treasury surplus problem will bo solved
to the satisfaction of tho public, by tho
expenditure of the large amount of coin
now In tho treasury ou publlo works
authorized by tho Legislature. Minis
tor Lansing's statement that tho actual
surplus November 1 was $317,000, coup
led with Minister Young's guarantee
that tho money appropriated by tho Le
gislature for public works will bo ex
pended and tho work completed by
March 31, places the people beyond tho
necessity of worrying over tho disposi
tion of the supposed surplus.
The prompt expenditure of public
money in tho manner outlined by the
Loglslaturo will relievo tho shortago In
the money market and accomplish the
much needed progress In the construc
tion of work In which the publlo la di
rectly Interested, How lanjo a task
Minister Young has on his bands in ful
filling tho guarantee, cannot bo stated
at tho present time. Tho public havo
confidence, however, that Mr. Young
will fulfil his promises. Tho state

only $1400 of tho current receipts ap
propriations remains unexpended Indi

SENATOR FRYE A STRONG
Hawaii could have no better filcnd

to tho administration policy than tho

however, tho nssuranco thnt Wm. P.
Fryo will bo tho presiding officer of the
Senate and to all intents and purposes

REGARDING COPYRIGHT LAWS.
The following circular regarding the
application of tho United States Copy
right Laws heio was recently received
by Charles Hopkins who found that It
was necessary for him to become a citi
zen of tho United Stntes before being
able to have his Hawaiian music copy
righted: Library of Congress,
Washington. D. C.
Dear Sir: By request of tho Librar
ian of Congress lhavo tho honor to
stnto thnt In regard to tho privileges of
copyright in tho United States on be
half of tho natives of Hawaii, Puerto
Hlco, Cuba nnd tho Philippines, tho
opinion of tho Attorney General, De
cember 2, 1898, wns as follows:
"It appears that tho subjects of Ha
waii had not. pi lor to tho nassaco of
tho icsolutlon of annexation of July 7,
1S9S, becomo vested by proclamation
with tho prlvilego of copyright In the
United Stntes. I hao heretofore hetd,
in an opinion, thnt certain laws of tho
United Mutes relatlvo to tonnnco dues
upon vessels fiom forclcn norts still
applied to tho ports of Hawaii and had
not bien nbrogntcd by tho terms or
effect of tho icsolutlon 'of annexation.
For tho icnsons given In that opinion,
I think that tho Inhabitants of Hawaii
aro not at piesent, in tho nbsenco of
nfflimatlvo legislation by Congress to
mat cuect, entitled to tho benefits of
our copyright laws.
"Puerto Rico. Cuba, and Manila havo
not as yet been formally ceded to tho
uuueu Males, so lar tney aio subject
to tho control nnd government of this
country they aio ruled under tho prin
ciple of belligerent right. They hnvo
not necomo entitled to tho rights and
privileges of citizens of tho United
States. In my opinion, when they shall
havo been directly ceded by tieaty to
tho United States, and such treaty duly
ratified by tho Sennto, their respecttvo
inhabitants will not bo entitled to the
benefit of tho copyright laws unless the
treaty, by its terms, confers such right,
or Congress shall nfterwards extend
such laws to tho Inhabitants of thoso
Under thcs,o circumstances entry of
copyright cannot be mado In tho Copy
