The government organ's attack on
Mnrelinl lirown Is another magnlllcput
evidence of how these local govern
ment people love one another.
If this lnllux of Japanese continues
at the present rate tho peoplo might ns
well turn over the town to tho Asiatics.
Hllo wants trans-l'aclllc tratllc. Send
tho tramp steamers anil their cargoes
to Cocoanut Island.
Among tho world's mysteries theie
nie two that, like the poor, are with
us always Tho location of o dropped
collar button, and tho depth of selfish
meanness that con be leached by the
man who tries to prevent another man
outside of his own peculiar brand
from securing political preferment.
At last the pipes for the Wnlltikti
water works have arrived. The Hoard
of Public Woiks Is now ipqtiestod for
once In Its administrative existence to
got to work without unnecessary de
lay. Such action would be unusual it
Is true, but Mr. Kowell ought to be In
terested in making a record before
turning over the olllce to an American
In Its criticism of the Chinese Con
sul, the government organ interjects
tho remark "without undertaking to
repiesent the government in any way "
This Is one of tho little pleasantries
that fuulshes amusement for tho pub
lic whllo tho Orphoum Is closed. If the
Chinese Consul or any other consul Is
adding difficulties to tho local situa
tion he ought to be called to time, but
such action Is not now within tho pow
er of local ofllclals except through their
duely accepted and designated organ.
Inconsistent and ponderous ns usual,
tho Advertiser calls down the Chinese
Consul for nagging tho local govern
ment, and then follows tho Chlneso
Consul's example by nagging tho chief
of tho Police Dcpnitment who has moro
important work on his hands than all
the diplomatic Idols of tho Executive
llulhlliig put together. If there Is nny
opcnlng for a move to increaso the
complications of tho present situation,
the peoplo can depend upon the Adver
tiser and the Chinese Consul to make
The best lefutatiou of the chaigo
that the Chinese piefer to exist on
charity, Is yesterday's action of tho
Chlneso merchants which has been for
mally presented to the government. It
is truo that tho Chinese liavo nt times
boon badly rattled during tho present
crisis, but they have not been moro
antagonistic to tho authorities than
certain white citizens who have at
tempted to discredit tho work of the
Hoard of Health. The Chinese have
been hit haid financially, which to
many of them is worse thnn death, but
tho majority of tho Intelligent members
of the colony have not been moro ob
streperous than tho ruling contingent
of tho city would bo undor tho eaino
elrcumstnnces. The Chlneso are ready
to care for their own nationality and
always have been. What's tho uso of
kicking them when thoy're down?
THE CITIZENS' GUARD,
When Frank McStocker retired from
Government service, one of his many
legacies left to Honolulu was a magni
ficently orgnnlzcd omorgency forco
known ns tho Citizens' Guard. Had
McStocker been hero Saturday ho
would havo been found un nblo leador,
and furthormoro a man of too much
good sense to hnvo Issued a call for tho
assembly of tho CItlzenB' Guard, oxcopt
In tho manner which was followed by
Marshal Drown. Tho Citizens' Guard
wob on the ground Saturday and com
posed the larger' part of tho axe handlo
brigade which acted undor tho direc
tion of the Citizens' Committee.
The Cltlzena' Guard was organized
as a protection from genoral riot In
tho city. As a result, tho points for ob
Kcmbllng, whon an emergeney call is
nent out, aro distributed about the
city from Palama to Walklkl. Had the
.Marshal sent out the Citizens' Guard
mil, Pr Wood for InManre. would be
railed upon to report armed with u
illlo nt tho Mnsonlc Temple corner.
OthciH would make tracks for Thomas
Suuarn and still others up Nuuntiu.
Had Marshal Drown sent out tho (luard
call nt 10 o'clock Haturday forenoon
Dr. Wood naturally would not have
responded, nor would the majority of
those belonging to the (Junril lme re
sponded, Tho larger portion of tho
members were already on the ground In
Chinatown, cither directing or follow
ing directions for such nsslstnncc ns
the police and military required. Axo
handles were as effective weapons ns
rllles, nml the chnnces are that the ob
sciibu of trllles was n fortunate event of
Hod McStockcr been here, tho citi
zens would have reported to him per
sonally, ns tho leader. There is not n
man In town who could on Bhort no
tice nsscmble ns many men to his sup
port. Citizens' Guard or no Citizens'
Guard, as Frank McStocker. He is n
natural leader and cnpoblo organizer.
Furthermore he would have too much
sense to go through the formality of
calling out the Guards and having
them report by companies when mem
bcis were Just whore they wero needed
nnd following tho directions of the
If Marshal drawn hnd followed tho
Advertiser afterthought Ideas, China
town on Saturday would have been tho
scene of a chaotic four ring circus with
everybody standing on olllclnl dignity
and tho Asiatics scattering about the
town whllo the Citizens' Ouard and
Citizens' Commltteo were seeking to
discover where they wero nt.
In McKinley's Hands
Washington, .Ian. 11. Senator
Spooner holds that whatever policy tho
I'nlted States may adopt toward tho
Philippines, this country must protect
Ufa nml property In the archipelago
and maintain n stable government. Un
til tho conditions nro better understood
by Congiess he considers academic
legislation worse than useless. Pend
ing u wise solution of tho iiuestiou,
which can only be reached by careful
study of the people and conditions, ho
has full confidence In tho wisdom of
President McKlnley to direct tho af
fairs of the new possessions. He em
bodied his Ideas brlclly today in tho
following bill introduced In the Sen
ate: "That when the insurrection against
the authority and sovereignty of the
United States In tho Phlllpplno Islands
shall havo been completely suppressed
all military, civil nnd Judiciary pow
ers necessary to govern said Islands
shall, until otherwise provided by Con
gress, be vested in such persons and
shall be exercised in such a mannerr as
tho President of the United States shall
illiect for maintaining nnd protecting
tho Inhabitants of said Islands In tho
full enjoyment of their llbetty, piop
erty nnd religion."
The bill, which Is unusually brief and
explicit. Is modeled on that passed by
the Eighth Congress after the pur
chase from Franco of Louisiana Tor
iltory. It was introduced after Sena
tor Spooner had called on the President
with tho purpose doubtless of securing
his approval or advice concerning Its
provisions. He nrgues that the Im
perialists nnd nntl-lmpcrlnllsts agree
that a htroug and capable, government
must bo maintained whether the United
Stales shall retain tho Islands pcrtiu
nontly cr eventually turn them over
to tho i..iiivi people. H.ivin? acenpted
responsibility of tho occupation of the
Islands the United States Is In duty
bound to give the Islands ns largo a do
gree of freedom as posslblo undor exo
cutlvo control. He holds that tho
President, having tho ndvantago of bo
lus in closo touch with tho military
ofllccrs In tho Philippines nnd with tho
Philippine Commission, can avail him
self of their ndvlco moro readily thnn
Congress during the experimental pe
riod of government.
President Sehurmnn notified tho
President toduy that tho Commission
would bo ready to leport tho last of
this month. When tho report has been
mado to tho President It will bo sub
mitted to Congress. Tho President has
taken no further action about tho sug
gestion made to Congress ns to tho
sending of tho Commission to the Isl
ands ugaln. When tho suggestion was
under consideration President Sehur
mnn announced thnt ho would not ho
nble to visit the Islands ngaln.

Vancouver, II. C, Jim. 11. Advices
from Manila say that Uenjnmln J.
Green, coxswain, ami George M. Pow
ers, first-class apprentice, nro tho sole
survivors, so far as known, of tho luck
less American gunboat Uardanetn. The
Uardaneta was taking soundings near
Oarangl and went aground.
Tho natives, seeing whnt happened,
sent word to tho Insurgent troops nt
Oarangl and n strong forco mnrched
down through the woods nnd took pos
session of both banks. Suddenly they
opened flro on all sides of the little ves
sel, wounding most of the crew nt the
ill st volley. Lieutenant Wood, who
was In command, wns wounded In
three places during tho first few min
utes. Seeing thnt tho vessel was
doomed ho had n boat lowered, hoping
by this means to escapo down s'trenm,
but tho boat wns riddled whllo being
lowered. Hy this tlmo seven of the
crow wero killed or disabled. Only
Green, Powers nnd threo others re
mained active. Tho Insurgents, grow
ing bolder, wnded Into tho shallow wa
ter and overpowered them by sheer
forco of numbers. A few days Inter,
when tho Oregon wns seen approach
ing, (ho men mado a dash for liberty,
but they wero recaptured nnd sen
tenced to dentil for tho attempt. Tho
execution wns to tnko plneo nt dny
break, during tho night they ngaln
escaped. Green and Powers climbed
Into n tree, hid In tho dense follngo at
tho top whllo tho Filipinos searched
tho woods around them.
Tho other threo Americans were
probably recaptured nnd killed. All
thnt night they could hear tho Fili
pinos searching for them, but next
morning they went nwoy. After tra
veling two days without food" they
reached tho coast and were taken on
board the Oregon.
