In Nicholson's Nek, bids fair to rc
placo "where tho chicken got the axe."
Hot though tho Agulnaldo trail, It
hardly makes n glimmer In the light of
a Boer nmhush and British retreat.
Kill tho rats ,cook thoroughly every
article of food and don't let the Chin
cso or Japancso servants go off tho
premises. "An ounce of prevention,
Although tho Advertiser Is not like
ly to "acknowledge tho corn," tho peo

iwrary realizes that the course advo
cated by tho Bulletin is the courso to
follow, If public Interests arc to be best
Honolulu still has soino things to be
thankful for. Manager Bnllcntyno has

Tho old lesson, centuries old, is
again enacted for future nation build
ers. It Is the men of the plains, the
simple farmers nnn uncouth cowboys,
who win battles, whether tho weapons
nro battle axe and shield or Mausers
nnd Lyddite Bhells.
Senator ForaUcr's appearance as
chairman of tho new Scnato committee
on Pacific Islands and Porto Itlco dis
counts any reflections on Fornker's
nntl-admlnlstratlon sentiment. Sena
tor Frye is not tho man to boost antl
oxpanslonlstH or real antagonists of
tho President Into positions of pioml
nence nnd pownr. Forakcr will not re
tard tho advance of Americanism In
this or any other Insular possession.
If It be truo that certain Chinese
citizens are assuming n threatening at
titude toward thoso of their own na
tionality assisting In stamping out tho
plague, these benighted Individuals
cannot bo brought to tlmo too quickly.
Tho intelligent pcoplo of this commun
ity aro in no stato of mind to stand any
"monkey Bhlncs," much less direct or
covert threats against Chinese officials
or any officials or citizens of whatever
nationality who aro assisting In the
manifest duty of tho hour. Tho quicker
Ignorant Chlncso como to their senses,
tho better for all concerned. If tho ac
tion is not voluntary, tho people will
8co to it that thcro will bo action nnd
that right positive.
CAYPLESS AND HARTWELL.
A correspondent who would liko to
support tho Dolo government but enn
not on account of its transition period
record, remarks: "Cayplcss, In attack
ing tho methods of nnnoxatlon, is
llkoly to do tho country as much harm
as Special Agent Ilartwcll In working
out the Dolo government schemes." It
Is rcnlly-u.qutstion of which will ac
complish tho most Injury, an attack
upon the methods by which annexation
was "secured or attempts to 'excuse tho
policy of Hawaii's Executive sinco an
nexation took place. Cayplcss hits the
local regime In its most vulnernblo
point tho labor policy and then
plays to tho sentimental gallery In
such manenr as seems to him best to
create politics in tho Interests of his
client Wilcox. The funny part of It is
that tho officials and their Jrlcndn
should seek tho repudiation of Cay
plcss and then hold up Hartwell as an
epitome of all that Is wlso and best
for tho country. Attnck upon tho
methods by which annexation watt se
cured Is largely a matter of personal
opinion to which Cayplcss as a free
ngent gives rreo personal scope. Cay
plcss .bespeaks fRo natlvo Hawaiian
sentiment toward the Dolo govern
ment. Hartwell, also a personal repre
sentative, seeks to retain tho Dole gov
ernment's grip on official power.
Statements of both Cayplcss and
Hartwell show conclusively that Ha
Avall needs a strictly American govern
ment, administered by Americans who
havo an honest sympathy for tho Ha
wallans and do not fear, as does tho
present government, to graijt the pco
plo thn full rights of American citizens.
Finally a gleam of intelligence seems
to bo scintillating through tho official
mind in connection with tho disposi
tion of tho surplus. Whether this
money is expended for tho improve-
'aetit of Chinatown or distributed free
ly among tho departments, a good por
tion of it should be used before Con
gress gets started on tho idea ot de
moting a good jsized portion to Federal
uses. This quibbling over tho defini
tion ot nn emergency Is sheer non
sense. Tho necessity for tho liberal
expenditure of money exists, has ex
isted for months, and let up on tho
quarantine for n few days did not In
any way lessen tho necessity of for
warding vigorous work of letting light
nnd air Into tho crowded recesses of
Call tho Council ot Stato nnd appro
priate tho money. Should there bo no
further appearance of plaguo In tho
next six weeks or six months tho lie
ccssltlcs of tho hour ns wrought to
light In Chinatown or In tho water
Biipply will be none tho less pressing
or less worthy Immediate nnd active
nttentlon. Honolulu must over bo
watchful against the Introduction of
epidemics from tho Orient, and to
piactlco Bhort sighted economy now Is
merely to nut off tho ovll day. Hono
lulu commands first attention becauso
It la tho principal port of call, but tho
council of Stato snoutd also placo
liberal sums of money In tho hands ot
the municipal authorities of Hllo and
every town of any slzo on all tho Isl
ands. Do the work thoroughly while the
money is nt hand. Ilcmovo tho temp
tation which will bo a strong one
now offered to Congress of placing in
Federal hands tho surplus moneys re
sulting from Hawaii's prosperity.
BOER SENTIMENT OR BRITISH
Hnpld nnd complcto as has been the
almost unbroken list of Boer victories,
tho British only clinch their fists tho
harder and prepare to glvo up more
men, expend moro money, pour out
more vital blood of tho nation in main
taining tho Integrity of tho Empire.
Tho stubborn and splendid fight which
the Bocis nro making arouses tho ad
miration and sympathy of every neu
tral people. Sentiment naturally tends
toward tho smaller nation of simple
and hardy people who aro giving their
lives freely to preserve their honest
Interpretation of justice.
On the other hand, tho free hand
with which Gteat Britain pours tho
best blood ot the nation Into tho hor
rible, vortex of war begins to carry to
tho public mind a moro clear apprecia
tion that the British must carry tho
duy or suffer a retrogrado movement
that will shake tho cmplro to its foun
dation. Great Britain Is sending into
tho battle, front men of tho same char
acter that gave strength to tho armies
and added ferocity to tho battles ot our
Civil War. In tho regiments from tho
British Isles, from Canada and Aus
tralia tho rank nnd flic wo And tho
samo blood and same high character
of tho volunteer forces of tho United
States. Whether or no political man
ipulation or financial greed brought on
tho war, tho struggle from tho British
standpoint has resolved itself Into a
tight for tho llfo of tho nation.
Sympathetic sentiment goes to tho
Boers defending their homes. Con
sideration of the dlro results to all na
tions if British power Is broken tells
us that British defeat will usher In a
sad and bloody epoch at the opening of
tho century. Tho fato of moro than
one nation hangs on tho turn of tho
scnlo in South Africa.
Tics ot blood and tho friendship
growing out of incidents consequent
to tho Spanish war, placo tho'Unlted
Stntc on tho sldo ot tho friendly neu
trals. These considerations weigh
heavily In tempctlng tho public mind.
Blood Is thicker than water, but wo
have a liberal smattering of Dutch ns
well ns English blood. Tho vital point
in American friendship is nnd will bo
national self Interests. Guarding
against European aggression it) our
continent and facing European antag
onisms in tho Orient, tho United States
cannot view with lndlffcrcnco loss of
British prestlgo as n world power.
British necessity appeals moro strong
ly to national counsels than does Boer
sympathy. America has her own bat
tles to light In future days and sho enn
