Having cooked Its own political
Kooso the olllclal faction of Hawaii Is
ratting around In the soup of failure
for some bono of contention with which
to malo Its defence.
Obvious falsehoods require no refu
tation. That tho power behind the Un
olllclal Delegate should deem It neces
sary to publish a defenco proves the
slmdy character of Its statements.
Tho Dole government has been bo
free with Its charge of misrepresenta
tion, that the renewal of this cry from
their organ cartlcs conviction to tho
public that n political truth has yet to
bo uttered by the dicky bird In the
It will bo Interesting to know wheth
er tho President will place forty dol
lar oak desks and throe dollar blankets
among proper expenditures. The
Hoard of Health has acted nono too
promptly In placing tho purchasing
power undor one man's control.
Senator Clark's statement of tho fact
that Col. Parker has dono more for
Hawaii In Washington than tho whole
Hart well combination put together Is
what worries tho local ofllclal Idols.
Tho straightforward man is the ono
who carries Influence among Congress
men and American officials.
Attorney Crclghton's statement of
his relations with Judge Perry Is of a
nature that demands moto than pass
ing attention. It Is to bo hoped that
Judge Perry can make an explanation
that will bo satisfactory to Mr. Crclgh
ton and tho public generally. Tho Bul
letin must confess, however, that It
falls to apptcclatc what Is to be gained
through efforts made at the present
time to test tho legality of the rules
made by tho Citizens' Committee. Tho
rules a,rc tho result of expcitcnco
in cholera epidemic and tho present
struggle with tho pest. There Is no rea
son why any person should opposo these
regulations provided tho sub-Inspectors
recognize established rules of courtesy
and decency In making their rounds.
Nor should an attorney bo held respon
sible for tho shortcomings of n client.
Tho best authority tho Citizens' Com
mlttco can havo Is tho unqualified sup
port of tho community for whatever
measures tho leaders mav deem neces
sary, neprcscntatlvos of the coinm It

comport themselves In a manner that

Hartwcll doesn't mean what ho Bays.
Whether ho does or not makes
llttlo difference so Inr as th.
peoplo of Hawaii aro concerned
The position of the Uuofflclal
Delegate Is so well known nnd was so
clearly stated to tho President by Col.
Sam Parker that It really makes llttlo
difference whether ho stays whero ho
Is, to bo constantly snubbed or returns
to Honolulu to busk In friendly shado
of defunct grandeur at tho Executive
building. Ills speedy return will
doubtless lessen tho complications
arising from the payment of his fees
from tho Diplomatic and Consular ap
propriation. It appears that tho Dole government
contemplates these complications with
moro or less pleasure. Wo certainly
hope that tho dicky bird of tho dama
fula tree will have an opportunity to
sing a peon of Joy. It needs something
to stimulate tho olllclal after tho con
inuous rebuffs received from Washing
ton. Its cry has ever been so contlnuos
ly discordant with ovcry noto bespeak
ing n strnlgtforwnrd American policy
and ready ncqulescenco to tho obvious
mandate of tho Administration, that It!
would bo quite refreshing to tho pub-
lie to listen to an honest American
song from the bird that warbles for the
delectation of un oligarchy divested of
Its power but still lighting to main
tain an Independent autonomy In ill-
ported to espouse previous to tho enact

THE DICKEY BIRD'S SONG.
The plaintive soug of tho "historic
dickey bird In tho damafula treo" was
again heard this morning attempting n
few bars of apology tuned to the dis
cordant themo which Unofficial Dele
gate Hartwell Is presenting In Wash
ington. The result Is an Impotent med
ley of strains from tho howl of tho
whipped cur with which Is added a
leaf from tho Pauahl street book of
Tho dickey bird Is muddled. It
knows that tho Unofficial Delegate In
his present position Is a pious fraud
foisted upon tho public purso of tho
peoplo of Hawaii to carry out tho per
sonal desires of an olllclal compact,
which, discredited In Washington and
left to Its own foolish devices by tho
peoplo of tho Islands, Is making a last
despcrato throw to retain its grip on
tho government lever. Yet tho bird,
truo to Its Instincts, fcola In duty bound
to sing tho song that reaches tho heart
of tho defunct olllclal Idols; tho song
Which by frequent repetition bolsters
up their waning hopes and creates a
mirage of formpr glory and ofllclal dig
nity n tho minds of thoso bigoted offl
!3 wandering III tlio desert wastes of
their manufactured transition porlod.
Meanwhile tho unofficial dclcgato Is
floundering around In tho Washington
lobbies seeking to convince tho keen
business men and statesmen of the
United States Congress that ho repre
sents something moro than a few per
sonal Interests and a Pacific cable
scheme as a sldo lino. Having failed
signally In his mission, Hartwell has
said that ho wants to throw up tho Job
and come home. Tho dicky bird Inti
mates that this1 Is not a fact. Possibly

tho Home Bakery, Honolulu, has left
Walluku for Maunalcl plantation, La

tion as timekeeper and assistant bookkeeper.

It, Is with deep regret that Wal
lukuans learn of tho untimely death
of Frank Dunn nt Knmalo, Molokal,
nt the enrly age of twenty. Tho young
man was employed In tho Honolulu
Iron Works nnd enmo to Kamalo about
three weeks ago on a visit to relatives
when ho wns stricken down with
typhoid fever. Mr. nnd Mrs. Dunn, of
liana, tho parents of the deceased,
wero taken over to Kamalo by the
steamer I.chua last week, and they got
tnerc just In time to sco tho passing
away of their dear son.
Pelo Kawelo, a 17-year-old lad who
had Just served a term ot six months
In Walluku Jail for burglary, was again
sentenced last Saturday by Second
Maglstrato Kalclkua to a term of one
year on tho reef, for stealing goose
eggs from tho yard of Dr. Ed. Arral
tage. It seems that Pelo took his
younger brothers nnd other children
Into tho doctor's yard and ordered his
young accomplices to take away tho
eggs and sell them to the Chlncso for
whatever they could bring and that
they woidd share In tho results.
Over an inch of rain fell In Walluku

ONE BAD RESULT.
A pilvate letter from Omaha received
yesterday says: "It seems too bad that
the plaguo should havo broken out and
spoiled what evidently would havo
been tho grentest season that Honolulu
ever experienced in tho shapo of tourist
travel. Everything was rlpo for it."
Friends abroad, however, can bo ns-
surcd that everybody hero is not feel
ing blue over tho future. This morn
ing a business man connected with one
of tho largest concerns, when shown
the foregoing question, said:
"That is bad In itself, but Honolulu
will bo In better condition than before
next year. Ves, I beitovo that tho
prosperity of Honolulu in tho near fu
turo will surpass even tho dreams of
the most hopeful."
Tho present writer was In tho office
of tho llaymond-Whltcomb excursion
bureau In Boston a few weeks ago,
when Mr. Lyon handed him a beauti
fully printed and Illustrated booklet
advertising an excursion to Hawaii
from Boston In March. This will prob
ably bo postponed, but will undoubted
ly como later. In tho samo city tho

northwestern routes wero nistilbutinir

promoting travel to tho Hawaiian Isl

general passenger agent of tho Union

counts making progress with tho now

foluer. Thousands of copies of tho llrst

A tank at the Pioneer Mill broke Thurs

accident, there was no sugar to be taken
on up to the time the Kauai sailed.
Horrible India Famine,

from London says: Tho Indian fam

territory nnd tho remainder In tho na

clared at n council meeting, to sustain

tives being about 3,250,000. Lord Cur
zon plaintively states that while In
1897 hundreds of thousands of pounds
wero contributed by Great Britain, and
"tho world shared our sorrow," tho
Government of India has now to strug

Is really far worso than the Oovcrn
