When It can be said that the meager
news rccolved from Gen. Duller "glad
dens tho British heart," It Is merely n
demonstration to what depths of des
pair the Drltlsh heart has fallen,
THAT LABOR REPORT.
It has yet to be learned whether tho
participants In the Hartwell dinner at
Washington received a request to pay
so much per plate. Fond memories of
tho dinner Mr. llartwell tendered to
Cien. Wheeler still linger In tho minds
of tlioso Invited giiCRts asked to pay the
Heirs presumptive to olllclal posi
tions In the coming territorial govern
ment of Hawaii should bo especially
careful when placing their pe"destnls
for a pose, that no loaded ancient
records nre lying around. A pedestal
that wobbles is neither n spectacle to
win coulldcucc, nor Is It at all socuru
for the poser to stand on.
The San Francisco Call gets Itself
Into a great stow over tho report on
labor conditions In Hawaii purported
to htivo been made by United States
Special Ag3iit Scwall. Ono might sup
poso from tho Call's lengthy remarks
that Mr. Scwall bad made a personal
Investigation ami rendered a per
sonal report. Tlhs is so far from
tho fact that tho Call's con
clusions nro made nonsensical and
foolish. Tho report In question is ono
prepared by the ofllclals of the Hawa
iian Government and forwarded by tho
special agent of the United States to
tho State Department. Tho Call says
It has "no light on Mr. Scwnll's func
tions," n fact that would bo apparent
had the Call not been honest enough
to admit It. Tho Call's nttltudo also
shows Its complete subserviency to tho
Btigar clement now centering Its forces
to place all tho new possessions on a
colonial basis with special tariff dis
crimination against their products. Wo
have yet .11 lenrn of any American olll
clal who has favored directly or Indi
rectly tho Importation to Hawaii or any
other possession of Asiatic laborers
under labor' contracts. Foitunately
tho men who will settlo tho local Ter
ritorial situation nro acquainted with
tho fact and, ns local government or
gans discovered In connection with the
laud order, the olllclals and legislators
at Washington are not easily misled.

The Pacific Hardware Co,
llurtwcll says that Mr. Dole's laud
laws arc Intended to guard against the
greed of speculators and to favor small
hcttlcis. Congressman Hitt found the

that while Mr. Dole's land theories
lead well tho practiral lesults are epi

That Andrew Carnegie's millions as
sisted In rousing the Filipinos to tc
bclllon seems established beyond
doubt. Ills expemlltmo of $1,000 to
pay for the cnblo transmission of
Senator Hoar's speech, casts his record
of bequests, amounting to $.',000,000,
in ono year, completely In tho shade.
How much has Andrew Carnegie given
to relievo tho homes mado fatherless by
ills espousal of tho Filipino cause?
The situation for the past twenty
four houis Is disposed to cheer tho
community and put ft brighter aspect
on tho contest with tho plague.
Whether this ndvnntngo Is temporary
or not depends upon tho continued
unanimous and strenuous effmts of
every citizen. Uveiy ndvnntngo gained
must bo followed up quickly nnd con
tinuously. To nrcompllsh this tho nil
thorltlen must hnve tho actlvo assist
ant n of every citizen of the town.
Why Is It that tho lto.ud of Health
nnd Citizens' Commltteo must still ask
for more volunteers physicians and
laymen? Havo the people of the town
yet to realize tho necessity for work.
Tho .Chinatown Hie did not u llttta to
solvo tho problems of the situation, but
all tho benefits del I veil will bo lost if
the ndvnntngo Is not followed up by
untiring work all along tho lino. Tlila
Is no tlmo to stand back cither ns a dis
gruntled critic or ns nn Indifferent on
looker whllo others do tho work.
Every man can do something nnd tho
physicians especially nro in duty
hound to respond to tho call for assistance.

Now York, Jnn. 1C. A dispatch to
tho World from IlniBsels says: V. J.
l.eyds, the minister plenipotentiary of
tho South African Republic accredited
to all the Governments of Europe, said
"Remember It is Kngluud not we,
who Is mainly lesponslblo for this
bloodshed nnd who hns repulsed all
outside efforts to bring about 11 suspen
sion of hostilities.
"As for a refusal of an exequnteur to
Mr. Hay (United States Consul on his
way to Pretoria to rcphuo Mr. Ma
crum) that rumor appears to come
through what aro called Doer agents In
America. Let me state that no such
person exists. No man in America hns
any uuthoiity to speak on behalf of the
Government at I'ictorla. As for the
report itself I can neither confirm nor
deny It, but I know of no reason which
would lead tho Government at Tretorin
to tako such a decision."

Not a fow of tho Citizens' Commlt
teo Inspectors Hud that quite ns much
opposition to their efforts Is offered by
Intelligent citizens as by tho "Ignorant
nnu tnougntiess." in somo Instances,
as noted nt yesterday's commit tteo
mooting, there is direct refusal to com
ply with suggestions. Tho most serious
opposition, however, Is tho apparent
indifference with which suggestions nro
received nnd followed out. Having re
ceived a promise from owner or tenant
that rubbish will bo cleared promptly,
the Inspector often finds on tho follow
ing day that nothing has been dons.
What wonder Is It that Inspectors he
como orratlc when tho men whoso
supposed common senso would
prompt them to render overy assistance
possiblo, act with Indifference It Is
tho. duty of ovory man to forestall tho
suggestions of Inspectors so far as pos
sible. The wonder of It Is that they

Loudon, Jan. 12. I a. in. Lcc
Metford cartridges are running short In

however, has Issued a strict order to
tho volunteers that tho fifty rounds of
"mnrq IV" given them must bo used In
practice at homo, none being taken to
South Africa. After tho public an
nouncement that no such bullet would
bo used In this war, Its employment,
