In going over tho list of DUhop ro
tate trustees whom tho inornlnt? paper
attacks, It Is Interesting to note the
prominence of men prominent In the
counsels of the local government.
Consternation In many households
resulting fiom the quarantine In
Chinatown should Impress upon the
people how vltnlly Important It Is 10
tho homes uf Honolulu that Chinatown
bo' kept In sanltnry condition.
As usual on his Washington tours,
Mr. Hartwcll outlines a very dark out
look for Hawaiian legislation. The
general situation is reassuring except
for local ofllclal fads, which It Is to be
hoped Mr. Dole will have the good
sense to abandon.
Koitunatcly local Investors In securi
ties do not base their estimates of
values on the tips and downs of the
San FianclKco stock market. Tho days
when Honolulu Indulged In speculation
have passed nnd the market Is estab
lished on sound values.
Cnn Hawaii nfford to hoard money
In tho treasury at Ufo'expcusc of pub
lic health nnd consequent interference
with commerce? There Is but one re
ply for the oineluls ami tho Council
01 State to make to the muulclpil
problems now bcfoio them. Spend tlw
money; forward the public work.
With the large pio-Rritlsh popula
tion of Hawaii there Is smnll prospect
that the financial aid to the men op
posing Uiltlrili lule wilt be largo. The
Widows and orphans, however, wheth

With Senator Clark of Wyoming
chairman of tho Foreign Relations sub
committee on Hawaii, tho pcoplo of
these Islands may rest asssurcd that
there will bo no playing of Individual
favorites at the expense of tho terri
tory as a whole. Senator Clark knows
tho Hawaiian Islands aud his know
ledge of Its pcoplo was gained as n
man among men, not as an official di
rected nnd Influenced by officials.
Tho neatness and dispatch with
which tho House, of Representatives
disposed of tho finance bill gives prom
ise that thu utith Congress will make
n good record for promptly disposing
of the nation's business.. A smnll ma
jority In full sympathy with tho ad
ministration and governed by Reed's
business like rules can ncompllsh won
ders. Tho Incidents thus far attend
ing tho efforts of tho "anti-Imperialists"
of the Senate also Indicates that
nono of tho Important measures of this
Congress will bo blockaded by
damaging tactics of the minority fili
busters. Tho attempt of Chinatown denizens
to malto a break en masse should Im
press tho boys of tho military with the
serious responsibility that Is placed
upon them. Statements havn frequent
ly come to thin office that Chinese nnd
Japaneso hnvo ovaded tho guard by
sneaking through tho banana field on
Nuuanu near Kukul street. Tho indi
viduals making these- statements havo
Invariably refused to. stand sponsor
for their assertions before tho public.
Tho incident of Inst night, however,
shows that tho motlvo to break quar
antine exists and that the guards can
not to bo too strict In the fulfillment ot
their Important task.
Th"e splendid work that has been
dono by Mrs. Crnft in her efforts for
tho prevention of cruelty to animals
Is deserving ot unstinted praise. Few,
if any Instances of cruelty havo escap
ed her notlco and tho nggresslve man
ner In which sho has brought Inhuman
acts to proper account has had a wide
spread Influence among those who have
no heart for tho sufferings of dumb
animals. Certain It Is that her watch
fulness has reduced cruolty to beasts
"of burden to a minimum within the
limits of Honolulu; her earnestness
and fearlessness In carrying on tho
good work at nil times Is evidenced by
incidents during travels abroad. Ho
nolulu may well claim tho honor of
counting among Its peoplo ono of the
most sensible nnd active huraano offi
cers of the nation, MktM a
REVOLVING THE REVOLUTION.
Threshing over the details of tho
revolution of 1893 Is Interesting and
valuable only to those who desire to
register pcrsounl opinions on ovents
that have passed Into history. So far
as tho United States Congress nnd offi
cial action of tho nation Is concerned
the question Is settled and cannot be
upset or modified by reviving old
wrangles. Tho vital Ibbuc of today Is,
whether tho new governmental con
ditions of Hawaii will he organized on
lines that will contlnuo the old local
wnr sentiment between supporters of
tho mount chy nnd lenders of the
These conditions will contlnuo If tho
organic law granted tho Islands Is
framed on Hues that favor the con
tinuance In power of the ruling faction
of tho present or past. Give Hawaii
an Amcilcan government administered
by nu American governor nnd tho old
bitterness nnd jealousies that accom
plish nothing In tho Interests of iirog
rcss or general public welfnro will
gradually sink out of sight. Let the
majority rnlo under tho beneficent and
liberal conditions found In an Ameri
can territory. Let tho standard of
political life bo the American stand
ard that sets asldo the past and meets
tho present with votes. Neither Hn
wallans nor tho Dole government will
guln prestige with Americans or with
Congress by reverting to tho discus
sions of former days. Tho Queen will
not bo le turned to power nnd tho Dole
government will not bo continued In
power. The sooner both of these fac
tions comn to n realization of the situ
ation, the better will bo Hawaii's
chances of speedily securing n form of
government which will leavo tho pco
plo free to settlo their differences at
the polls and obtain such administra
tion of local affairs ns shall meet the
aproval of tho majority Irrespective
of foimer Individual afllllatlons.
THE HEED RULES.
'Although the Reed rules gained for
ox-Speaker T. B. Reed tho tltlo of Czar
and brought upon him tho calumny
which fierce partisanship breeds, the
Reed rules aro ono of tho most Import
ant and most acceptable- legacies whlcji
any Speaker of tho Houso of Represen
tatives has left to tho country. Pre
vious to tho opening of tho Fifty-sixth
Congressional session discussion was
rife as to tho advisability ot continuing
tho parliamentary rules for which
Reed stood sponsor. This discussion
llko that which took place at tho or
ganization of tho Houso was largely
perfunctory, Tho Democrnts .oppose
tho rules, that allow tho majority ot
tho Houso to do business, principally
becauso theso rules aro Reed's and
Reed Is a Republican.
Notwithstanding purely partisan
discussion, tho Reed rules have come
to stay and while slight changes may
occur from tlmo to tlmo tho founda
tion prlnclpleytho majority must rulo
will remain. Tho 'day has passed
when tho people will view with Indif
ference, weeks of Congressional ses
sions wasted In useless discussion nnd
tho business of tho nation blockaded
by a minority which does nothing but
retard progress. Reed's rules put new
life into the work of Congress nnd put
an end to tho manipulations of filibus
ters whoso only claim to promlnenco
was based on their physical ability to
talk their colleagues to sleep and tho
nation's business to death. In days
when tho tariff was the all absorbing
topic, business men, Irrespective of
party afllllatlons, called" for action,
prompt settlement after a reasonable
discussion bo tho final result for or
against tho opinions of Individuals.
To Reed belongs tho honor for ac
tion In tho Interest of prompt fulfil
ment of tho legislative promises mado
oy tno dominant party. Though con
demned by thoso whose political busi
ness it Is to condemn, tho nrlnclnlos
laid down by Reed Aro accepted by tho
pcoplo and will stand as long ns" com
mon business sense Is a ruling element
In the nation.
