What McKtnloy had to say to Con
gress of Hawaii, ho has spoken ero this.
The chances nro that by tho tlmo wo
get news from Washington tho dlo of
Hawaii's prospects In this Congress,
will ho clearly outlined If not definitely
In tho midst of tho comparatively
quiet and easy going life of Hawaii,
there are very few citizens who envy
tho task tho various delegates from
tho Islands havo taken up In Washing
ton. Tho truth of tho matter Is that
tho tendency to put off till tomorrow 1b
Inrgely respoiiBlblo for tho local poli
tical characteristic of not prcparlns to
get ready till tho last minute.
Anyone who follows tho work of, the
police department cannot fnll to appre
ciate tho necessity of a well equipped
receiving hospital In tho central part
of town. Hardly a week passes without
some painful or serious accident among
tho working classes. Tho department
docs tho best It can with tho equipment
at Its disposal, but unfortunately the
equipment for prompt surgical attend
ance Is very poor, to say tho least.
Soon after hearing that Arthur Sow
nil considered tho recent elections an
endorsement of tho Administration,
Ilryan announced his intention of mak
ing a. lecturing tour through Now Eng
land. Although Sewall was Hryan's
running mate on tho last Presidential
ticket, ho Is too keen n politician not
to understand tho trend of public opin
ion. Sowall has retired from nctlvo
politics, but tho chances aro Bryan will
And that nsldo from Atkinson, ho will
havo few additions to his antl-lmpcrlal
flock from tho New England Stntes.
While we doubt very much that any
citizen of these Islands will be nppolnt
cd to tho position of United States Mar
shal, there Is one feature of Robert
Wilcox's repotted aspirations that Is
commendable. There Is not a position
In the gift of tho national or territorial
government which tho native Hawaiian
has not n right to seek. Tho gcnernl
feeling among native Hnwailnns seems
to he ono of fear of treatment ns u sub
ject race. This fear Is not warranted
nnd really does Injustice to tho Ameri
can Government. While tho Hnwailnns
will not bo strengthened by a rush to
Washington for offices, they will gain
nothing by remaining In the back
ground and ussuinlng that they have
no right to bo heard.
MUNICIPAL LEAGUE SCHEME.
Our esteemed morning contemporary
objects to tho Young Men's Municipal
league suggested by tho Bulletin. This
paper has no apologies to offer for Its
suggestion that tho younger men take
an nctlvo part in discussing municipal
problems. Wo nro gratified, however,
that our contemporary has come to a
realization of tho Importance of organ
ized non-partisan effort in approaching
tho problems soon to become tho llvo
questions of tho day.
Tho Bulletin will coidlally support
any schemo of organization that will
accomplish nn awakening of tho public
mind to a careful consideration of tho
futuro municipal charters. Let the
work begin at tho earliest day possible.
Action and prompt action by young nnd
old Is what tho situation demands.
Following tho arraignment of muni
cipal ownership by Robert P. Porter,
Public Opinion gives a rovlow of n sull
Btltuto for direct ownership nnd opera
tion of enterprises which has thus far
given complete- satisfaction In tho city
of Indianapolis. Tho Consumers Gas
Trust Company has been so organized
that tho people gain tho benefits of
cheap fuel without tho city assuming
responsibility or expense.
Soon after Jho discovery of natural
gas in the vicinity of Indianapolis, tho
Standard Oil Company undertook to
plpo it to tho city, hut tho control pass
ed to tho hands of local capitalists who
immediately proceeded to ralso tho
rates. The protest against this proce
dure , resulted In the organization of
the Consumers Gas Trust Company,
which Is a comprorolso between cooper
ation and municipal ownership, and to
all appearances a very successful com
promise. The articles of association
provido for a board of flvo trustees,
nono of whom hold stock in any com
peting company. Tho board Is self per
petuating, vacancies by death or resig
nation being filled by tho remaining
members. All subscriptions to stock
nro mado under a special contract that
tho subscriber shall transfer his stock
to tho trustees who havo Irrevocable
power to voto tho stock for directors.
Tho subscription contract further pro
vides that ns soon ns tho holders of tho
stock have received tho faco value
thereof with 8 per cent Interest, tho
price of fuel gas must bo reduced to
cOst. In other words, when tho earn
ings of tho company reach tho
amount paid In with 8 per cent Inter
est, tho pcoplo rccclvo tho futuio divi
dends through tho reduction In tho
prlco of gas. Under this schemo ficti
tious or speculative stock values aro
practically Imposslblo and after the
orlglnnl subscribers havo received
Ltlielr original Investment with fair rato
of Interest, tho consumer gains all the
benefits ncciulng from n well estab
This company has been in operation
for ten years, with tho result that Its
patrons nro not only satisfied with tho
servlco and intes charged, hut with the
record of having saved nearly n mil
lion dollars over what It would havo
cost had tho orlglnnl company suc
ceeded In forcluc Its demands. The
director's hnVe Bcrvcd without pay, and
being icsponslblc to Individual stock
holders havo met tho Improvements tlo
manded by. Increased competition
Thus tho householder has not been
saddled with tho expenses of high sal
aried officials and tho operations of
tho company havo not been marked by
tho lax methods which too often char
acterize) enterprises directly under mu
nicipal control and subject to tho re
tarding lullucnco of political bickering.
Tho stock Is so placed that politicians
aro not disposed to intcrfcio with tho
company and no capitalists who will
satisfy themselves with nn 8 per cent
Incomo on their Investment nro forced
out of tho field of competition.
NEW SHIPS FOR HAWAII
San Francisco, Nov. 20. A now ship
ping and transportation company lias
been organized to operate between San
Francisco and Honolulu. Tho prlmo
mover In the enterprise Is 'Will M.
Campbell, who left this city over a year
ago to engage In business In tho Is
lands. Tho necessities of his own busi
nebs led to tho formation of tho com
pany. Mr. Campbell camo hero a few
days ago to securo a largo quantity of
building materials, and was surprised
to learn thnt ho would have great diffi
culty. In securing its rnptd transporta
tion. Tho way out of tho difficulty, and tho
only ono that presented Itself, was to
charter a vessel, and finding that thcro
wns a largo freighting business await
ing any company thut might bo formed
to becuro It, tho plans of Mr. Campbell
expanded almost before ho knew It, and
now ho Is at tho head of an oceanic
Two serviceable nnd seaworthy
three-masters havo been secured, nnd
it has been decided to closo a contract
for tho construction of a now three
masted schooner, with auxiliary steam
power and accommodations for about
forty passengers. Tho new vessel will
bo built in tho best manner nnd with
all the latest Improvements.
It Is Intended by Mr. Campbell and
his associates, now that tho business of
ocean freight carrying has been thrust
upon them, to extend tho scopo of tho
company until It shall havo ships ply
ing between this port and those of
China, Japan and tho Philippines.
READY TO SUPPORT HAWAII
Boise (Idaho). November id. Senator
Slioup and family left today for Washing
ton, but will stop a day In Salt I-ake. In
an interview before leaving the Senator
said the time was ripe, In his opinion, for
congress to taie action with respect to
Hawaii and Porto lli.o. He said we know
as much now about the needs of those isl
ands as we could know after another year
and he favored the enactment of, such le
gislation as shall appear to be necessary.
He did not think It w ould be practicable
to legislate for the Philippines or Cuba at
this time. 1

New York, Nov. 28. Admiral Dewey

pondent of the Herald.
"President McKlnley Is a good friend of
mine, and I hope to see him secure a sec

mv friends will not continue to talk of mv
being a candidate. The American people
have too much sense to do anything of
that kind. It seems to me that the so
called battle-scarred herots, as n rule, have
maue poor rresipems.
"President McKlnley Is a good friend of
mine, and I shall never forget those noble,
cheering messages that he sent me at' Ma

keep them as long as 1 live."
The admiral expresses much satisfaction
with the news from the Philippines. He

If we capture him we shall be too humane
