History says that the patriarchal

liand. History ever topcats Itself.
The governorship sliufllu Is now o

If the local government aggregation
spent as llttlo time worrying over
where- the governorship lightning will
strike as does Oeorgc Ocar, there
wouid Indeed be a Happy Family In
the Executive building.
If P. 0. Jones could bo pievallcd
upon to head a commission to formu
late a plan for tho construction of New
Honolulu, tho people could rest assur
ed that tho opportunity of a century
will bo Improved to Its fullest extent.
Sunday has been such a fateful day
In plaguo history that tho confidence
Inspired by the record of tho lost ten
days in of a questioning character. It
is to be hoped that the bad news of to
morrow will be confined exclusively to
the rat colony.
Dr. Wood's report puts a brighter
phase on the situation at Kahulul and
Hllo. Doth these districts have the ad
vantage of Honolulu's experience, and
under tho direction of tho able men In
charge there Is good reason to believe
that the Qght will bo short and sharp.
Tho mistake will not bo made of lift
ing quarantine during tho first lull.
It Is a piece of good fortune for Ha
waii that Arthur Sewall mado sizeable
purchase of local securities at a time
of general depression In tho business
community. When a man of Mr. Sow
all's standing demonstrates his
confidence In the present and future of
the Islands, the scare stories by which
leaders In American financial centers

The Advertiser amuses Itself by at
tempting to give George Ocar the horse
laugh, and gains new courago through
(he tidings of comfort and joy Col.
Parker bespeaks for Mr. Dole. Mr.
Gear's remarks on his own candidacy
and Col. Parker's on Dole's chances for
tho Governorship are merely evidences
4hat tho laugh Is on tho local combina
tion. No ono will ncny the right of tho
Oolo faction to make the best of their
supremo confidence whllo It lasts. Tho
tlmo Is short.
This "government" talk about repre
sentative men Is tho most magnificent
nonsenso to anyone who has lived In
Hawaii long enough to nolo how opin
ions ot tho ruling olllclal faction aro
formed. If "Barefoot mil" Just let
out of Oiiliu Jail should dccluro loyalty
to tho local government ho would stand
a chanco of being sent to Washington
as a representative. Hawaiian. Any

ing is immediately scheduled In tho
This is no tlmo for tho Dole govorn
mont to wasto tlmo quibbling over tho
authority ot tho Council ot Stato to
appropriate funds tor emergencies ro
aultnnt of tho plaguo. It can bo taken
for granted that tho Hawaiian Legis
lature will not meet until tho territor
ial bill has passed Congress. Mean
while tho work must go oil and money
for It must bo supplied. If Secretary
Huy's telegram doeB not mean that
tho Council of Stato can appro
nto, It Is absolutely without nny mean
Tho Hawaii Herald advocates send
ing Mr. Locbcnstcln to Washington
to represent tho Interests ot the island
of Hawaii. This bears out tho Bullo
tin's statement that Col. Little repre
sents only himself nnd tho American
Settlers' Association of Olan. Ho Is
acting with tho freedom which his cltl-,
zensnip ana auuuy to unci cue coin tor
ozpenses glvo hlra. Our Dole govern
ment friends should remember that tho
United States Congress Is not governed
by rules or rulers that put a gag In tho
mouth of nny American citizen.
As said by P. C. Jones, the people
havo the oportunlty of a century to
make New Honolulu n city worthy tho
name of a modern American port us
well as the Paradise of tho Pacllc. This
opportunity canles with It a responsi
bility which no citizen of these Islands
can ah'ord to view with Indifference.
The great fire of 188G gave tho people
an opportunity to rebuild Honolulu on
modern lines. The cholera epidemic
was a lesson, which, though appreciat
ed ot tho time, amounted to compara
tively llttlo on account of tho half
hearted measures that followed.
Now we have the old Chinatown wip
ed out and a new lesson from the
plague visitation. Added to this Is the
assured position of Honolulu as one
of tho Important ports of tho Pacific.
Local and foreign trade Is Increasing.
It will continue to Increase. Every
dollar Invested today for Improved
sanitation and new streets, and every
regulation mado for tho construction
of new blocks Is a small premium .in
tho Insurance which theso measures
establish for future safety and wealth
of the city. Thcold idea of building I
shacks to be used for the homes of
Asiatics must be dono away with, and
tho peoplo awaKc to the fact that n city
cannot be built on the lines of a planta
If the present respite Is not another
falso alarm, tho day is fast approach
ing when there will be a loud nnd for
clblle cry for tho work of reconstruc
tion to begin. When Honolulu Is onco
more an open port, tho greatest danger
lies In tho probability that the de
mands of tho present will cause the
people to forget the future. Thus old
mistakes will bo tepeatcd and future
generations will find themselves fight
ing tho old problem over again.
Our public spirited men, the officials
and tho peoplo realize the opportunity,
yet tho first lines of the general plan
have yet to bo drawn. Tho situation
demands action. When tho Legisla
ture meets tho people will not allow it
to wait for the report of a commission.
Tho opportunity offers now for tho
consideration of tho many lndtvldu-il
opinions, tho sifting of general ideas
and tho construction of a genet nl plan
on which the Legislature may oasa its
action. Bring tho theories down to
a practical basis, and the prospect
ot Honolulu making tho best of lis op
portunlty will be guaranteed.

Hon. A. S. Clcghorn, former gover

missioner of publls grounds In Hono
lulu, spoke to a Bulletin reportor, who
met him casually, In theso terms: "i
wish your paper would advocato the
cutting up of largo nlncks with streets.
There Is it splendid opportunity now
In Chinatown. The Intermediate
streets' ought to bo at least eighteen
feet wldo bo as to allow two vehicles
to pass each other. Another good
chanco Is to make a new street past tho
Austin Bite, from King to Hotel, be
tween Fort nnd Bethel streets.
"Tho division of blocks would in
crease tho vnttio of property. You
should see tho way Paris Is cut up with
streets, tho blocks being much smaller
than the uvcrago in Honolulu. Thcro
Is not room for n park in Chinatown.
The ground thcro Is too valuable for
that purpose, it Is needed for business
blocks. Talking of new streets, thcro
ought to bo at least two more cutting
across Knima streot. Kukul srteet
ought to bo extended. Oh, it's on tho
plan, but what Is tho use of plans un
less the work Is dono? Thnt has been
tno trouhlo right along In Honolulu."
'ino conversation was held near
Pulaco square. Mr. Cleghorn was
asked what ho thought of making a
park of tho burnt district next that
place. Ho said it would bo a good
