FRIDAY JANUARY 12. 1900.
With Mr. Pain on the one side and
Mr. llatlcntync on the other, both sub
jects of Her Majesty, It la Impossible
to put any llocr-llritou phase on the
street railway controversy.
KUKUI 8TREHT EXTENSION.
If the people of the United States de
sire American principles In Hawaii to
wniio and become n less potent factor
in Its political life, the easiest way to
accomplish the result Is to set the Isl
ands to one side on some c otciulnl
Why should .Mr. llnrtwell foci very
nuicli put out when he learned . Col.
Sam I'm leer had told the President
that the "unofllelal delegate" Is noth
ing but a personal leprescntatlvo tit
Mr. Dolo? Pail.er told the Until and
Ilnrtwnll Known It.
When there Is public work to bo
done, streets to be extended and Im
proved, why should the men released
from the" detention barracks he main
tained in idleMirss? The Hoard of Pub
lie Works has an oppoi utility to dis
tinguish Itself in bometlilliR besides its
It Is safe, to presume that Mr. I ! "
personal r"piehcntntivo, Hartwcll, Is
using his wide acquaintance and war
records to t-crtirc an extra session of
the Legislature. Mr. Ilartwell's In
fluence with the President mid friends
of the Administration has yet to show
anything but a list of failure.!.
The man or men who have titated
that tho Bulletin Is or over has been In
possession of n list of tho property
owners In Chinatown and Is afraid to
publish It, are purveyors of an absolute
falsehood. Tho reiteration of such n
statement Is only necessary to put
them Individually and severally with
in the category of willful llnis.
W. O. Smith finds It Impossible to
withhold from meddling In personal
politics. Thus bo as usual takes upon
hlms-elf authority not vested In him
and thereby reduces his value as a rep
rosentatlvo of business Interests. If
the country ns a whole has any right to
recognition, wo would suggest that .Mr.
Smith hang up tho new ofllclal slate
until tho Hawaiian terrltoilal bill Is
well on its way.
Tho Adveitlscr Is veiy much In error
when It states that according to the
law of tho land Foit street of necessity
conies next on the list to Vineyard for
Improvement. The Legislature of 1898
amended tho act quoted by tho Adver
tiser striking out that portion which
commands that Vineyard and Fort
shall receive first attention. If pos
sible nil tho stieets named Fort, Kit
kul, Vineyard, Kimklnl, Dates, Pensa
cola, Mllllanl, Queen ad Young should
bo extended as directed by tho Legisla
ture. When sanitary conditions nro
considered thcro Is no question that
Kukul street extension should take
precedence overrfort, It tho work on
each cannot be cairled on simultan
eously. The lano from Foil to Emma, which
extension of Kukul Is Intended to wipe
out, Is one of the most unsanitary sec
tions of tho town. Tho houses are
crowded and tho lane Is 111 smelling
and dirty from the nuisance commit
ted by those passing through at night.
Proper stieets through Chinatown are
not more necessary to the health of
the people than tho opening up of this
lano as was Intended by the action of
THE UAILWAY I'OW-WOW.
START WORK ON Till; ROADS.
Tho Bulletin's suggestion that the
homeless people of Chinatown bo given
work through tho Improvement nnd ex
tension of the streets meets with gen
eral favor from the public. Thcro Is
really no reason why tho nblo bodied
men boon to tin released from the quar
antine barracks should continue n
charge upon the charity of the public
The Legislatures of ISflfi and IS93
provided lor extension of many streets
lu Honolulu. Of tho number nnmod
Vlneynrd sheet Is tho only ono com
pleted. Minister Young remarked in
effect the other day that when tho
Legislature nets It is to bo taken for
granted that tho object Is n necessary
How much more necessary Is It now
that this street extension in Honolulu
bo carried on. It Is merely a question
of whether tho government malntuln a
good portion of the Chinatown popula
tion In Idleness, or uso tho samo
amount of money ns a return for la
bor. In how many cities of tho world

The street railway companies are to
lie congratulated on timing their pow
wow on tho streets to take place dur
ing a wait for mall steamers when the
public mind Is mulling over the un
happy conditions niislng from the
plague. Even u dog fight Is u welcome
dlvcislou theso days, while Mr. Hallen
lne ami Mr. Pain havo furnished an
open air exhibition that Is Interesting
and quite new to this town. The real
Intel est of the public, however, Is to
gain something permanent from this
rnll'ii business. For the last tlirtc
months King street, ono of tho city's
main thoroughfares of business traffic
lias been in various stages of upheaval
that reminds one of the condition of
Hroadway, New York, whero one por
tion Is no so'oikt put In condition than
another part Is dug up.
The sewer operations blockaded tho
streets to a certain extent, but the
work was done quickly, and when the
pipes were once laid they wero down
to stay. Tho people enn view siu h
work with benevolent Indifference, If
not pleasuie. llut when it conies to
desultory raids with pick axe and
shovel, llrst ono company digging up
the street and then another and neither

Tho appeal of the Rapid . Transit
Company that all work on laying
tracks bo suspended until tho rights
of tho two companies can bo determin
ed by the courts Is a reasonable one
ami .iliows ilue icspect for tho demands
of business truffle that no unueces
sal barriers bo maintained on tho
streets. When the question of rights
Is pending and can only be settled by
decision of the courts, tho government.
If It has authority to do anything, is lu
duty bound to keep tho streets of tlu
city free from an embrogllo like that
now going on.
Who owns the streets anyway? Are
they to ho turned upside down every
tin co weeks to wilt the sweet will of
tho generals directing tho battles of
private corporations? Has the public
no rights In this matter that demand
It Is about time the government posi
tively called a halt until tho corpora
tions havo settled their differences
either In the court or somo side alley.

that this body cannot furnish all the
slnowo of war necessary to deal with
the present situation us well ns extend
appropriations in the vailous depart
ments. While tho Hawaiian bill Is
pending before Congress, the people of
tlild country should attempt to legis
late as little as possible. Power to ap
propriate money Is the only necessity
of the present sll nation nnd tho Coun
cil of Stato has that authority. Call
ing the Legislature opens a vista of
possibilities that offers little moro thnu
new complications which will delny
the action of Congress lu pulling the
Islands out of their governmental
chaos. Asldo fiom appropriations, tho
only "other pressing matter" that de
mands attention Is tho prompt onnet
