There will ho time enough to criti
cise) olllclals when the present crisis
has passed. Until that time nny word
or net that serves to complicate the sit
uation nccompllshea nothing for pub
lic benefit r.nd engenders factional
strlfo when hearty cooperation Is de
manded. Keep cool and wait. Either 'tis or
tlsn't. If 'tis, there will bo plenty of
hard work to do next week and the
public will bo mightily thankful for
tho precautions taken. If 'tlsn't the
people can Join In a merry ha ha nr.'l
mako up for lost tlmo in preparations
For onco Honolulu can give heart
felt thanks, for tho long period be
tween the arrival of creamers bound
for the Coast. It Is posslblo tho first
news of tho local situation will reach
tho States by way of Mnnlln. Hy tho
tlmo tho transport Shopman's stoiy Is
bent ovo" t'ti wires, ths confirmation
or limitation will bo received on the
Hoodlums nio responsible for the
falluro oftentimes of tho lights at
Thomas Square on concert nights, and
it is also noted that In some of tho
outside districts tho now street signs
have been marred. Whether It Is tlm
boyish spirit to do something wrong or
tho natural etissedness of elderly boys,
vigorous measures should bo used to
prevent such wanton destruction.
Delays in tralllc and tho shortage In
tho provision market pones ns a good
pointer to mllltnry authorities In-providing
supplies In tlmo of war. If wo
had a largo garrison of soldiery to
feed, it would require comparatively
llttlo effort on tho part of the enemy
to starve Honolulu out To Uvo off
tho country Is practically an Impos
sibility for tho present population of
tho Island of Oahu.
Mark Hanna has put n quietus to tho
stories of his retirement from tho na
tional Republican committee. Ho will
stay by his post until tho national con
vention of 1900 when a now committee
will bo selected. Whether Hannn re
tains the leadership or not will ho de
termined later, but It may bo accepted
that ho will not bo a noncnlty what
ever his official position. Tho only
people evidencing marked anxiety to
secure Hunna's withdrawal nro tho
Democrats who fear his supcilor abili
ty In organizing political forces.
