President Dolo Is fast dlscoveilng
that tho knlfo thrusts ho Is receiving
como from those purporting to bo his
friends. In his relations with tho
Hartwell-Smlth combination ho has
been like a lamb led to tho slaughter.

As was forecast by tho Ilulletln some
days ago, tho bill providing special
regulations for retaining men ot the
Island dependencies In offlco meets
with tho hearty approval of the local
government. Mr. Dolo tells his gov
ernment organ that he considers it "a
protty good proposition." So tho pro
vision In tho Hawaiian bill retaining
local judges In ofllco was considered n
particularly good proposition by the
local faction. In fnct theso good pcoplo
consider anything a good proposition
that keeps American prlnclplo in the
background and tho official power In

EXTEISD FIKB LIMITS.
Conflicting opinions regarding tho
rebuilding of Chinatown should Im
press tho authorities with tho neces
sity of making hnsto slowly. Tho in
terests of tho community will bo serv
ed far better by n tompoiary delay than
by going at tho matter with a rush,
only to find that the now foundation Is
laid on much the samo lines of tho old.
Tho plague, tho flro, tho general
,,.',, A .....
condition of Chinatown nnd tho whole
business section liavo demonstrated
conclusively that tho flro limits of tho
city must bo extended. This ought not
, . . .
to be dono piecemeal as In years gono
by. Let the flro limits Include all that
district bounded by Alapal, Vineyard,
T.llllin otrnntu nn.1 tha Hon Thlo Ala-
....,, ., .. . . '.,
trlct Includes aJl the strictly mercan-1
tllo section nnd n llttlo moro, but the
time Is not far distant when tho bust -
ncss soction of Honolulu at Its pres
ent rate ot development will havo
reached these limits and possibly ox
tend beyond. Half way measures are
worse than useless. The energy and
careful consideration that has char
acterized tho tight against tho plague
must bo kept up to concert pitch If tho
new Honolulu Is to bo tho modern
model city which tho pcoplo now have
the opportunity to innko it at compara
tively Binall expense.
The now street plan howoxcr perfect
will bo ot comparatively little benefit
unless the new buildings nro modern
fire proof structures. This may neces
sitate greater expense, but tho reduc
tion of Insuinnco rates ami tho Increas
ed safety to tho city will In the long
run moro than compensate the prop
erty holders for tho additional outlay.
Tho authorities and the business men
should build for tho future as they have
never dono before.
More Kurprlso would have been oc
casioned had W. 0. Smith been found
on tho sldo ot the American officials ad
vocating the application of American
laws to Hawaii's lands. So far as
Smith Is concerned, his Influence on
legislation for Hawaii has been nulli
fied by tho personal campaign In which
ho Is seconding tho efforts of Mr. Dolo's
personal representative. Tho public
men of Washington thoroughly under
stand tho lobby which Is practically
headed by Unofficial Dclegato Hart
we.i, who admits that not tho least of
his duties Is to forward tho personal
Interests ot Mr. Dole.
Smith's Intimacy with tho unofficial
dolegato has not helped him any and
tho prominence which tho now official
slato has been given by men supposed
to represent purely business interests
is accomplishing just what tho pcoplo
hero want as regards futuro officials,
but It Is damaging to tho business com
munity. Fortunately tho old tlmo
friends of Hawaii, whllo Indifferent to
tho delegates, aro still true to Ameri
can principle and aro forwarding tho
campaign for thoroughly Americaniz
ing theso Islands with energy nnd en
thusiasm that assures success.
As a matter of fact Hartwcll and
Smith, by their ever jealous watchful
ness for personal power nnd promo
tion ot factional Interests, nro doing
moro to assist Senator Piatt and tho
guardians of tho sugar Interests, than
they nro to accomplish tho ends sought
by tho Administration nnd Congres
sional friends ot Hawaii.
Hartwcll wants to come homo.
Really we can't blamo tho man. Ho
has found that tho friends of tho Isl
ands aro truo to the cause ot annexa
tion now, as they havo been In years
past. Tho Republic ot Hawaii Is a de
funct proposition. That Hartwell, or
Smith as Influenced by him, should still
uphold personal Interests and still at
tempt to maintain the autonomy of this
government as against tho sound judg
ment of American statesmen, Is further
evidence of how little theso men ap
preciate tho truo situation In Washing
ton nnd to what extent they aro In real
ity hampering tho Administration.
STREETS AND ALLHYS.
Editor Evening Bulletin: I note
with great Interest tho remarks mado
by Minister Young and other citizens
as to tho futuro streets of this city and
moro especially referring to (. htnatown
It appears that somo win spoko huvo
not really studied the matter ot streets
and lanes whilst abroad or they would
hardly recommend lanes In tho center

where our cosmopolitan crowd from
old associations cling to narrow and

mouern improvements or Eastern ana
Southern countries show that health Is
preserved only when plenty of light,
air and good water nrc allowed.
May I mention that In Australasia
which Is second only to tho United
States In population, the matter of
streets nas received much attention.
Sydney, tho oldest capital ot Austra
