KILL THE RATS.
Volunteers for the campaign against
tho rats should Include every house
holder and business man of the city.
Soino objections havo been mado to
tho system of rat poisoning proposed by
tho Citizens' Committee, but this ought
not to prevent tho good work of de
stroying rnts going on at the date
named by tho men in charge. If any
householder believes that he can kill
more rnts, with less danger to himself
and tho community, by bomo other
method than that propofed by the
Committee, hu Is fieo to go ahead
Tho object of tho campaign Is to kill
rain, not to waste time discussing the
best methods of dealing out tho ro
dent death rate. Tho success of tho
effort depends largely on the degreo of
cooperation from ovory portion of tho
city. Any method which might drivo
tho carriers of tho pest from ono place
to another la worse than useless. The
plan of the Committee may not bo the
best on earth, but it Is the best thus
far bi ought to notice. Tho critics havo
proposed nothing better, and if any
considerable- benefit Is to bo derived
from rat extinction, tho measures must
hu carried out by an Immediate and
concerted attack all nlong tun line.
It Is to ho hoped that no citizen will
act Indifferently, thereby lessening tho
effectiveness of work of paramount im
portance to tho futuro safety of the
NO GAG LAW IN WASHINGTON.
It Is interesting to noto tho out
burst of local government wrath oc
casioned by tho disposition of Con
gressional committees to listen to tho
arguments of anyone outsido tho lo
cally preferred circle of officials. Our
local salntfl of the earth, who run
thlnj?n now, fall to appreciate, that
tho situation is vastly changed In
Washington &o far as Hawaii was con
cerned. In the days of Hawaiian Inde
pendence the "government" and diplo
matic representatives controlled the
situation nt Washington. With Ha
waii part and parcel of the United
States, this advantage of official con
trol Is lost. Our oillclal circle has now
tho samo right to declare a citizen of
Hawaii unworthy of a hearing at
Washington as the representatives of
the Trusts have to question tho right
of tho labor lobby io bo heard. Any
and every citizen of the United States,
whether from Hawaii or Florida, na
turalized or native born, has the right
to a hearing before any and every Con
gressional committee. The commit
tees anil Washington officials pass
Judgment on the credentials which tho

The fact that Hawaii's government
In the past has been ono -of minority
rule should not lead the ruling oillclal
circle to believe that this Is to be
continued under American administra
tion. Congressional effort is centered
on giving Hawaii a government that '
shall bo acceptable to the people. The
misfortune Is that there aro not more
citizens of Hawaii ready to tako the
trouble to personally present their
views on the local situation beforo the
Congressional committees. That the
ruling action gets angry because these
committees do not apply the gag iitle
Is a fair demonstration of how our
local saints would handle tho people
If given a free hand.
Washington, Feb. 2. Tho President
today transmitted to Congress tho ilrst
volume of the report of the Phlllpplue
Commission. It Is n volume cf -fit
pages, Including the appendix, and Is
signed by Professor Schurmnnn, Ad
miral Dewey, Colonel Denby and Pro
fessor Worcester. Tho principal sub
ject dealth with is the plan of the Gov
ernment proposed by the Commission,
which Includes n discussion of the
Spanish Government existing prior to
tho war, the various reforms dcslrod
by tho Filipinos and tho constitutions
proposed by them, trgcthcr with the
conclusions and plan suggested by the
Tho report also covers many other
matters connected with the social ad
ministration of tho island, racial char
acteristics, education, secular and re
ligious orders; tho Chinese In tho Isl
nnds; public health; currency, etc.,
as well as tho condition and needs of
the United States In tho Philippines
from a na.'al and nviritlmi standpoint.
The second luino of tin if-,i.)rt,
which will not ho leady for sovetnl
weeks, will contain a detailed descrip
tion of the cllmv.o and natural ie-
sources of tho Islands.
Tho chief Interest In tho report nat
urally centers In tho plan of govern
ment proposed by tho Commission.
Tho Commission announces Itself un
qualifiedly In favor of a government of
the Philippines analogous to thnt of
a Territory of the united States, with
a Governor appointed by the President.
They say It Is deslrablo that tho In
habitants of tho archipelago should
enjoy a large measure of homo rule In
local affairs, their towns to enjoy sub
stantially tho rights and privileges of
towns In a Territory.
Tho piovlnees should be ested with
substantially the bame functions of a
county In n 'territory; this system
might bo applied to Luzon and the Vls-
cayan Islands at once, and n begin
ning might bo mado on the coast of
Mindanao. Tho Sulu archipelago call
ing for special arrangements with the
Sultan, tho Commission says need not
be considered In this collection.
Tho Filipinos could manage their
own town and county affairs through
their own officers, whom thoy could
elect with no help from American offi
cials except such as would bo Involved
lu contiol from tho central Govern
ment nt Manila. The suffrago should
be restricted by educational or prop
erty qualifications, or both. This sys
tem would necessitate n small body of
American officials of great ability and
Integrity and of patience and tact In
dealing with other races, and on this
account tho commission recommends
that they should bo paid high salaries.
