Agent Ilnrtwell writes In n dubious
vein. Tlio inospccts na ho outlines
them, however, nro qulto satisfactory
to the peoplo ot Hawaii, ono of the
most notable features being tho poor
prospects for family compact pet
Article C of Agent Hartwell's returns
from Washington reads, "Life Tenure
ot Judges of the Supicmo Court and
the Appointment Instead of Election ot
Judges 1 hesu provisions will bo op
posed by politicians as uu-Anitrlcun."
If the action of Cougiess on this pet
measuro of thu local government Is to
bo accepted as a criterion, ono of Hart
well's dispatches will read "tho ma
jority of Congressmen aro politicians."
Ah usual, anyone who opposes local
government IdcaB, Is a "politician."
While the Council of State Is giving
Its attention to emergency topics, tho
opportunity Is offered for tho Interior
Department to make Itself heard In
the Intel eatH of more lights for the
water front. If the members of the
Cabinet will expend some of their
valuable time In making a trip along
tho water front some dailc night, there
Is ovcry reason to believe that they will
bo Impressed with tho necessity for
prompt action. They will at least dis
cover tho necessity of going slow In
ordrr to keep clear of the merchandise
that now crowds tho wharves. Tho
mediaeval darkness that pervades the
water front Is second only to that of
Chinatown. To expect custom houso
orflccrs to guard tho property on tho
wharves or successfully provent smug
gling operations Is to expect a practi
cal Impossibility. The Increasing com
mercial Interests nro of sufficient Im
portance to demand good lights and
plenty of them.
AN INDEPENDENT HOARD.
While tho Health authorities were
grappling with a supposed visitation
of bubonic plague, the Bulletin has
maintained, and public sentiment hn3
supported tho contention, that tho cap
tious criticism In which tho official or
gans havo Indulged was unwarranted
and worse than useless. Contention
and strlfo has been stirred up when
steadfast support and hearty coopera
tion was an absolute necessity. At
tacks havo been made upon members
ot the Hoard of Health, halt truths
havo been stated with tho object of
discrediting men whoso Integilty Is
not open to question, and appeals have
been madu to prejudice rather than to
n calm view ot tho situation and a
fair minded consideration of tho sourco
of whatever ovll exists.
After thoughts nro valuable when
ubc(1 honestly towards hecurlng Im
provement lu public administration.
To damn Individuals for tho lack of
foresight ihat Is shared equally by the
critics, is dimply an ovidenco of per
sonal nntngoulsm and narrow minded
Tho sourco of tho actual shortcom
ings in the Doard of Health adminis
tration or action Is duo first and prin
cipally to tho centralized system of
government by which every depart
ment Is subject to the will, the activity
or inactivity of tho Executive Council
Not since tho Republic of Hawaii was
established have governmental bureaus
been Independent of Executivo Council
central. Many persons can recall tho
Incident in which W. O. Smith figured,
by refusing to allow tho appointment
of Dr. Miner to nn offlco when Dr.
Miner had tho endorsement of every
member of tho Board of Health. Tho
Executive Council and tho Influences
that control it havo always kept de
partmental strings in their hands. In
dependent action has been Impossible
ino cuucnuonai department wns
brought under tho control of tho Min
ister of Foreign Affairs nt tho Cabi
net's suggestion. During W. O.
Smith's torm as Attorney General, ho
was the Board of Health, and those un
willing to servo his mandates got out.
Mr. Cooper is a no less capable
executive offlcer than was Mr. Smith,
and he has the advantago of being less
autocratic. The fact still remains that
both tho Health and Educational de
partments should bo divorced absolu
tely from tnclr present relations with
the Executivo Council, Each of these
boards should be free to act Indepcnd
cntlynnduntll the wholo system ottbo
Executivo controlling membership and
action is changed, It Is doubtful wheth
er the peoplo will secure the freo and
independent administration which
shall bo a guarantee against a repe
tition of recent events.
Tlin ADVERTISER SOMI5U-AULT.
Tho Advertiser takes a most magni
ficent "tumble to Itself" this morning.
It disposes of Dr. Day by suggesting
tho promotion ot a private corpora
tion whose duty it will bo to rrmovo
garbngo nt n price. It then decides
that Minister Cooper agrees with tho
Advertiser und that he will bo all right
provided hu follows tho command of
tho great morning "I nro." Undoubt
cdly some ono will bo quick to form n
scavenger company, that "will bs lit a
position to chargo Its own prices to
small property holders as well its tho

the liquor business of Honolulu at

to Invest money lu tho Gotjicnberg
company lu ouler to "reduce tho evils"
of the liquor traffic.
If the government will supply the
money necessary to do tho work prop
erly, tho disposal -of garbage should
by all means be left to a municipal de
partment. The Advertiser has yet
failed to prove that the removal of
garbage has not been dono ns
thoroughly as the money nnd conse
quent equipment ot the municipal de
partment will allow. Tho Hoard of
Health askB for money; tho money
can bo mndo available through the
Council of State; tho public has
como to nit appreciation of the needs
ot the situation and will endorse ac
tion by tho Council. Tho common
sense solution of the problem Is to
place the money nt tho disposal of the
municipal department nnd sco to It
that thoJvork is properly done. Tho
long sought opportunity has arisen to
use urn plus funds lu the Interests
of public welfare. Improve It.
rhc iMopoHltiou to place muni

individuals see n hourco of private
