A Merry ClirlBtmns tu everybody
Don't forget that the school Hag fund
Ih worthy of lccofinltlon In the meet
ings and gifts of the rcibuii.
Tho question of who knows u bu
bonic plague bacilli wnl now take pro-
ccdenco over who hit Hilly Patterson.
Tills Is tho only opportunity the
present generation will have for ex
tending a Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Century.
Ilnpld progress of the financial bill
indicates that the Fifty-sixth Congress
will mako a record for doing tho na
tion's business on business principles.
The man who suggested Tom Heed
as VIco President with McKlnley In
1900 must nave been a close student of
tho antagonisms of olllclal life In the
Republic of Hawaii.
Attention of nspiiaiits for future
political honors In Hnwntl Is called to
the 'fact that Covcrnor Hooscvelt has
set tho pace by taking boxing lessons
of n professional pugilist.
Sir. Alacrnm. tho United States Con
sul who wants to get out of tiio . rans
vaal can never get a position us a
newspaper correspondent, but might
llnd a place In a dime museum us an
ofllc-lnl desirous of giving up his Job.
When Dr. Kitazato, ono or the nob'd
bacteriologists of the world limit him
self antagonized in dealing with the
black plague, Honolulu baa at least tiio
satisfaction of knowing that there are
other places in the world producing'
' proof that all men arc mortal.
There Is a ring of good sound sense
in tho Board of Education's resolu
tion on tho opening hoursfor public
schools. Tho individual schools may
bo allowed freu swing without fear of
independent action becoming oi.icr
than a sourco of satisfaction to tho
mothers and progress in the education
of tho youth.
6i Owing to the peculiarly chaotic con
dition of Hawaii at the present tlmo it
is not probable, or hardly posslblo that
any change can bo made In tho organi
zation of tho various departments.
, Ono lesson that should no. o forgot
ten either in tho future territorial or
municipal organizations. Tho boards
in charge of various municipal depart
ments should bo entirely independent
. and made up of men wtio hold no other
official position under tho government.
Tho boards must be neld responsible
by tho Executive appolntlvo power,
but the centralized weaving In of oin
cers acting In n dual capacity nttracts
criticism aud creates a divided respon
sibility which Is not ndvuntagcous to
progressive or Kiiccesssfiil work.
Tho Interior Department should tako
a hint from tho present situation aud
Htop granting permits for uo con
struction of Chinese shucks with .sec
ond story vernndns overhanging tho
sldowalxB. Tho day was when these
beastly structures were confined al
most exclusively to Chinatown, but
with the expansion of the city they are
steadily forging their way out along
tho Deretanla and King street
thoroughfares. Passers by on King
street now find themselves treated to
intermittent showers, of slops thrown
by the second, story tenants Into tho
street. This Is ono of tho varieties of
llfo which comes indirectly under tho
administration of tho Board of Health,
but which tho Interior Department Is
directly responsible for.
Senator Clark's thoughtful action in
urging provision for proper caro of tho
last resting placo of tho Itoyul family
of Hawaii is highly appreciated by
very citizen of Hawull irrespective of
party or nationality. That such action
will meet with opposition In Congress
is improlmblo If not Impossible. One
of 'the egregious blunders of tho lie
public of Hawaii rulers was tho as
sumption of authority over tho graves
of Hawaii's kings and queens. This
was shown m a marked degroo when
tho Executive Council demanded that
plans for a monument within the royal
burying ground should receive Exe
cutlvo sanction. While tho public will
gladly share tho honor nnd responsi
bility of caring for tho plot in which
Hawaii's leaders of former years rest,
tho desires of tho natlvo Hawaiians
suould be given first place as .ong as
the Hawaiian identity lasts.
Tho Advertiser must have received a
letter from homo Judging from tho
HUtldcn cbanga in the tono o( its re
marks on tho expenditure of money
ror me improvement 01 me city, it is
the unrac old ntory. A great flurry over
fulluio to curry on tho work which
money will 'secure nnd when It comes
to the pinch of producing the funds,
tho critical necessities nro forgotten
and tho vital part of tho whole proposi
tion falls hack Into tho same old
grooves. With all duo respect to the
opinions of those who bellovo Hnwali
has been divested of Its Legislature,
wo fall to see sound reason for their
conclusions. Unless tho dhect state
ment Is received from the President
that our leglslatuic cannot act while
the new teirltorlal bill Is pending, we
luivo every icasoii to believe that tho
proclamation which continued present
legislators In olllco did not rob the
legislators of authority to act. The
Legislature must necessarily be guided
by directions from tho President, nnd
It Is tho duty of Mr. Dolo to find out
tho degreo of legislative action which
tho President will allow. The local
oillcials have ever been prono to settle
local questions prior to straightfor
ward consultation with Washington
Tho Christmas season finds Hawaii
enjoying its share of peace on earth,
eood will to men. Tho inlllenlum has
not been reached nnd tho Dolo govern
ment Is still In power, but there nre
many poitions of the' g oho to which
we might tin n where the highest bless
ings to humanity appear to linvo been
bestowed with n less liberal naud than
in these right little tight little Isles of
tho Paclllc. i hanks to the power that
guides our destiny tho day when neigh
bor Is pitted against neighbor In dead
ly strife arising from civil emhrogllos
has passed nnd men unit women of the
present generation linvo u sound foun
dation for the hopo that no clash of
opinions or principles can again bring
about u conitltiuu thatwlll approach
the little hells or war whicii nave
marked tho history of the past.
Financial prosperity, which in the
present day goe3 a long way toward
popular appreciation of tho fulfilment
of prophecies found In the Good Hook
by which our civilization Is guided,
has been dealt out to our peoplo with
a liberality that might well placo them
In tho category of the specially favored
by Providence. Tho God of Peace and
of War has dealt with n particularly
kind hand toward those who center tho
sphere of their earthly career nt tne
cross roads of the Pacific. To ask more
would evidence that selfish Interest In
tho number and valuo of presents on
tho treo Is of greater Import than tho
spirit of good cheer and kind tboughc
fulness'tbat prompts tho gift.
That tho peoplo have mado equal
progress in tuklng the teachings of
Christ as the guiding prlnclplo In tho
small details of. li to Is to bo hoped.
The balanco account of each man's
fonsclonco must speak for Itself; tho
result Is found In the measuro of ad
vancement In higher moral tono ot
soclnl llfo nnd tho moro gencious spirit
of man toward his fellow., Hawaii has
not stood still; It has not gono back
ward. As n factor in tho scheme of
Christian civilization It has played Its
Its part honestly.
Tho Yule-tide senson ot tho closing
century finds tho people Joining hearti
ly In tho customs that bespeak tho
brlgntcr aud higher phases of life.
Ideals aro truo however weak and fnl-J
teilng may bo tho fulfilment ot details.
Cordially Joining In tho tlmo honor
ed custom ot tho season, tho Bulletin
extends Its greeting to its friends and
its enemies, to those who like us and
those who hnto us.-to our contemporar
ies A Merry Christmas.
