Alter rcndlni; Mrs. King's letter on
tlio Chinese boaidllig houses of tho
PlaliiH, It neenm hardly fair to visit all
tho hlanio for the maintenance of un
Hlghtly shaeUs upon the Chlucsu, when
It la tho Intelligent white man who
draws tuo Income (torn tho rental of
these places. Tho Muklkl Improvement
AHHoclatlon has lots of good work cut
out for It In advance.
A man Mho cnteisa dalK closet seek
ing wherewith to quench a thirst may
strike his bottle of Old Tom, but In
theso troublous times he Is quite ns
likely to dud lilmsHf niled with the
funny feeling that follows a liberal
swallow of n disinfectant. Ily tho
saino token the man who blindly fol
lows n friend with a war iccord sup
posed to have great lulluence In high
places, may find at the end of a long
tt Ip, that uut only has he not reached
tho Promised Land, but that tho bog
in which ho finds hlmxclf Is of a quality
to retain anything coming Into Its
Detention Camp No. 22, whero Min
ister Cooper, Dr. Mjera and Chester
Doyle have charge. Is fast becoming
one of tho Interesting sights of the
city. Tho rapidity with which these
men have organized a conglomerate ag
Kregatlon of fugitives Into a well satis
fled and comfortable community, Is nn
exhibition of effective and prompt work
In an emergency of which tho men In
chargo havo reason to be proud. Chinese-
and Japaueso boarding house
keepers ought to be taken to the Drill
Shed premises to glvo them a lesson In
the mannor In which their places will
have to bo conducted when the new
Chinatown Is built.
As has been previously stated In the
llullettn, tho movement for municipal
Improvement Is well under way and
has been for some weeks past. It now
llnds expression In the organization of
district clubs. Tho peoplo nro thor
oughly aroused mid when tho city has
fought Us fight with tho plaguo to a
finish. It will bo fouud that tho people
are organized and will not viow with
Indifference lackadazlcal methods In
future) administration. Tho non-partisan
municipal league Is already In ex
istence. Tho young men havo had not
u Httlo to do with tho work notwlth
stnndlng tho objections of tho ponder
ous organ that they wait for their el
ders to establish tho lines on which
tho futuio municipal campaign is to
bo carried on.
SMALL MERCHANTS ORGANIZE.
Tho suggestion for tho organization
of a Hoard of Trado or Merchants' As
sociation Is ono that ought to be for
warded with as much vigor as tho Ira
povcmenls clubs, municipal leagues
and tho rest of tho schemes that be
speak a progressive city. The Cham
ber of Commeico Is all right, but It
occupies tho saino position here that
Chambers of Commerce do thoughout
tho United States. It represents wealth
and ponderous weight. Its representa
tion of merchants Is small.
There Is hardly a city In the United
States In which tho merchants havo
not their separate organization, and In
evory instance tho result has ueen
hcneflclal to general business Interests.
Even In the city of New York with Its
powerful Chamber of Commerce, tho
activo business agent In that commer
cial center Is the Now York Doard of
Trado and Transportation. The Board
or Trade gives representation for tho
smaller merchants whoso Interests aro
qulto as Important as tho millionaires.
Moving along tho same linos as the less
activo organization It Borves to pro
moto a better recognition of the gen
eral business Interests and more com
plete cooperation for progressive work.
Let the small merchants get to
gether. As an organization they can
exert a power. At tho present time
they are practically n nonenlty.
POLITICIANS PROM2 WASHING-TON.
Our gie.U and good filend tho un
oflkinl delegate and special agent of
tho local Executive olllclals seeks to
Impress upon tho authorities In Wash
ington tho grent fear In tho heart of
Hawaii's people that the Islands will
bo colonized by ofllco seekers from
Washington. It Is n well known fact
that our olllclals havo a wholesome fear
of straightforward Americans holding
ofllco under territorial rule. They have
revived the old "carpet lugger" cry on
moio than one occasion slnco annexa
tion. Tho plea of Unolllclal Dclegnto Hart-
well and bis official masters Is merely
a pnit of tho perfeonnl campaign car
ried on under tho banner "Hawaii for
tho Hawailaus and tho offices for our
beles." This Is made more apparent
by Incidents In tho early career of tho
unolllclal delegate whom the local offi
cial faction upholds as nn epitome of
Hawaii's official capacity and grandeur.
Tho Pacific Coast Commercial
Record published on May 1, 1892 a
Hpeclal Hawaiian edition which In
cludes a long cvlow of tho lives of
prominent men In tho Islands. After
tho usual custom of special editions
theso autobiographies had their prlco
and tho text unquestionably met tho
approval of tho men found In tho list.
In dealing with Oen. llartwcll this ref
erence Is found to his Hist urilval In
gner civil war, completed law
studies and took degree of Ilachelor of
Laws at tho Harvard Law School. -After
practicing for n year or two In Hos
ton, received the appointment of First
Associate justice of the Supreme Court
of tho Hawaiian Islands in July, 1SCS.
This brought him to Honolulu, where
ho sat on the Iiench until Kalakaua's
election in February, 1871, when he
took tho placo of Attorney Oenernl In
Knlaknua's (list Cabinet n placo
which In a few months ho lcslgned for
privnto law practice, which ho has
since continued, with tho exception of
a year and a half as Attorney General,
Possibly tho fact that tho unofficial
delcgato came to ofllclal position in
Hawaii direct from Hoston, not Wash
ington, places him and his associates
In a preferred position. In other words
tho newcomer Is nil right If ho Joins
In with the official faction, otherwise
ho must bo a greedy "politician" from
Washington and unworthy recognition
as an American citizen.
THE TRADE RESTRICTIONS.
Tho critical situation that confronts
tho merchants of tho city Is very ably
sot forth by tho communication pub
lished In another column. Having
nearly completed tho wo'rk of housing
tho fugitives of tho fire, It Becms rea
sonable thnt tho Health Board can now
glvo tlmo to tho consideration of such
mcasuies as will relievo the strict em
bargo on merchandise. With the ex
ercise of tho eamo strenuous activity
that has charaetei 1ml the handling of
Chinatown, wnys and means can be
devised whereby Honolulu will not be
absolutely cut off fiom Its trado with
the other Islands, l'ut tho samo energy
Into tho construction of warehouses
tnat has been exerted In building tho
Tho Doard of Health Is in duty
bound to hold to radical measures In
preventing a spread of tho plaguo to
tho other Islands, for, ns Dr. Wood has
said, tho Board will bo hold responsi
ble should tho dlseaso make Its np
penranco outside tho limits of tho city.
Tho peoplo cannot afford to take
chances, but a continuation of tho pres
ent commercial condition for nnv
great length of tlmo means death to
retailers. What methods can bo devis
ed for giving moro freedom to Inter
Island business it Is not within the
province of the layman to Initiate. A
conference of tho Board with tho mer
chants however to reach a better under
standing seems absolutely necessary.
If remedial measures for tho merchants
aro not an immediate result of such a
conference, both tho professional and
business men will rench a completo
knowledge of tho situation and there
will bo less chafing under restrictions,
which, as tho situation brightens ap
pear unnecessary to tho business com
munity. Allnlstpy to Stnnd Together.
