The Hon. Win. Mason has placed n
resolution bcfoie tho United States
Senate expressing sympathy for Ibo
llocrs In their fight for liberty. As an
expression of Mason's personal views,
the resolution Is all right, but when It
comes to an attempt to tnuglu up
Undo Sam with Emopcan troubles,
the pun on Doers Is permissible.
Already tho play baa begun to mnku
political capital from the black plague
visitation. As tno discord nnd play
for place Is exclusively within tho ofll
clal circle, and the supposed friends of
tho ofllclnls are tho leaders in captious
criticism, tho Bulletin Is not disposed
to interfere with tho family squabbles.
When government organs Join in fls
crcdltlng mon in their own ranks at a
time when tho people, Irrespective of
previous afllllatlons nro prepared to
rally to tho support of tho officials, the
people at home and abroad can draw
their own conclusions as to tho neces
sity for a chango in the general admin
istration of local affairs.
Tho. final test of tho wisdom of local
scientists will bo tho Judgment passed
upon their conclusions and consequent
action by, tho .Federal authorities. As
tho, situation stands, now, the criticism
la based on the statement that recpnt
deaths In Honolulu were tho result of
.black plague. Tho rcBnlls, so far as
Uioy affect the general public and busi
ness Interests, could hardly have been

withheld or modified. When business
resumes Its usual way, tho general pub
lic will ,be satisfied to drop Into tho
old grooves, with tho liupo that tho
scientific men will .not .come to blows
in fighting It out among themselves.

official organs of the government nro

In going over the report of tbe
Hoard of Health and tho action of the
last Legislature it is apparent that tho
Hoard was not unmindful of unsani

tho conclusion that the inauguration
of a scwago system, und proper atten

-would solvo tho problem.

to Infer that ho would cither say noth
