"Remove partisanship" Is a number

There U no cause to worry over Inter

Tho death of D. II. Hitchcock closes
a career which In early days was a
power In tho land and will stand In his
tory high among tho leaders of pro
gressive thought. In his actlvo days
Mr. Hitchcock was a potent political
factor whoso counsels wcro often
sought and ho was always positives and
straightforward In word and act. Ho
held many official positions in dnya
when bitter political feeling ran high
and his administration of public office
was abovo reproach.
W. R. Castle's letter to the SpriiiRlicM

in Hawaii makes particularly interesting

star among these agents has been summa

charges relative to misrepresentation
which he cannot substantiate by facts
and which Special Agent Hartw ell has
also failed to make gooj. The letter
simply shows that Air. Castle spoke toa
quickly, and also further evidences the

ln tho palmy days when tho dispo

extent of appropriating -the monoy re
quired by tho administration depart
ments to meet tho constantly increas
ing demands. With steadily Increas
ing work thrown upon tho educational.
health and police departments, wo havo
found tbeso departments steadily re
trenching on accouit of tho shortage
trt funds nt their disposal, Money was
lying idle in tho treasury when work
that might bo accomplished, work that
ought to be carried on, was left un
done and tho peoplo awaited a serious
'emergency beforo calling upon tho
legislative nuthority for remedial oc
tlon. Whether Chinatown would havo been
in better condition had $2O,O0Q been
placed at the disposal of tho Hoard of
Health thrco months ago, wo will not
attempt to say, Tho Bulletin docs not
favor tho tendency to snap judgment
when n crisis arises, and tho public has
thus far failed to consider whether the
municipal work of tho department has
not been carried on ns thoroughly ns
tho monoy at hand would allow. Nor
do wo believe anything is gained by
assuming tho I-told-you-so attitude.
If the public bad demanded moro work
and furnished tho wherewithal to do it,
there certainly could be no possiblo
excuse for tho present condition of
affairs. During the past week tho his
tory of tho early days of tho cholera
visitation has been repeated almost in
detail. Now It is tho Inspectors ap
pointed by tho Hoard, then It was the
nxeeutlvo officer. Thon It was found
that too much work had been forced
upon ono man, now It may be inade
quate funds to pay n proper forco of
Inspectois. Until tne public mind is In
a condition to dovoto calm second
thought to tho subject, rabid attempts
to place responsibility do nothing but
stir unnecessary and In tho present
crlslB unfortunate factional strife.
Quo thing, however, lias been
brought forclbjy to public attention,
'iho Health Department did not havo
sufficient money to meet an emergency
and slnco the money was furnished
there, has been no delay in doing tho
task In hand thoroughly and prompt
ly. What was true of this department
Is also true of tho police and educa
tional departments, notwithstanding
the truism In the latter instances is not
evidenced by u life and death strug
gle. What then Is tho duty of tho citizen?
To criticlso tho authorities when the
plea of departmental poverty has been
of several months standing? Or to
seek ways mid means whereby tho old
cry of lack of funds will bo an impos
sibility? Mistakes of tho past, whatever they
may bo and whoovcr may bo responsi
ble, And their principal vnluo when
used to improve the trend of affairs
present and future.
It is now tho duty of the Executive
officials to nppeal to tho Council of
State not only for funds to tide over
the crisis today, but also for amounts
sufficient to continue tho work begun
and thus enable every municipal de
partment to broaden out to meet the
demands of ordinary progressive rou
tine or of emergency placed upon
them. It Is the duty of tho Council of
State to grant this request. Public
opinion will support such action. Com
mon sense and -proper ndmlnlstiation
demands it and lias demanded It since
n fair amount of surplus treasury funds
Tho pcop'le of these Islands have
evidently failed to consider tho pos
sibility that they may wake up at no
distant day to find their surplus devot
ed to Federal purposes by virtue of tho
votes of Federal legislators. Such nn
outcome, however, is n possibility and
tho only way to avert It Is to bo
prompt In Investing tbo money in the
municipal or local security of pro
gressive work. Put a sui plus of funds
in tho hands of departments and then
if Chinatown Is not properly handled,
tho Islands not properly policed or tho
school children not properly accommo
dated, tho people will know the l eason
