Special Agent 11 nit well's presence In
Washington Is of no little value to the
people of these Islands. The mission
and the man are shining examples of
how the Dole government runs things
and the political character of the men
selected to do Its bidding. Congres

Delegate may be put down its qniti
New Honolulu Is of mote vital Im
port than the governorship to Hawaii at
present. Piesldcut McKInley can be de
pended upon to give Hawnll a thor
oughly Amerlcnn governor, but the fu
, ture of New Honolulu depends on the
forceful, thoughtful activity of the
people. We would suggest that the
government odlclals devote more at
tention to the public work of Immedi
ate necessity and less time to schem
ing wnjB and means for holding Jobs
under the territory.
I'linco David, Col. Tniker and
(Jcorge (iear, having had considerable
business on hand while In Washington,
are now enjoying a vacation by having
considerable fun with the local gov
ernment. Having made a diligent
search to learn the opinions of thex
gentlemen on the governorship ques
tion, tho government organ gives up
in disgust and says, "Pay your money
and tako your choice." It would in
deed be Interesting if the Jolly trio,
who are jollying the Dole aggregation,
would speak seriously of the governor
ship. Prep.uatlons arc being made for a
home for tho fallen Jnpancso women
who seek to lead better lives. This Is
a most commendable woik. Hut what
Is being done to caic tor tho pimps and
thugs who have lived off tho earnings
of these women? If the good people of
this town want to save the Japanese
women, they will servo notice on the
Japanefao blackmailers who aro not
only responsible for bilnglng tho wo

Now that tho question of authority
in IIIlo is properly settled, tho next
thing Is to glvo tho peoplo of Hilo suffi
cient monoy to carry on tho much
needed work for Improved sanitation.
Tho suggestions mado ut tho Doard of
.Health meeting Saturday morning
Will not only ho ondorsed by tho peo
ple ot Honolulu, but measures for moro
oxtonslvo work will bo advocated.
Honolulu's past furnishes a horrible
oxamplo to all growing towns cf theso
Islands. Whether Hilo Is to bo tho
most Important port Is neither hero
nor there. It is bound to bo a good
sized city with a largo amount of traf
fic coming to Its harbor. Illlo'a Im
provements can ho started now and
thus prevent tho possibility of going
through tho place with it flic brand In
days to como.
CONTINUE THE INSPECTION.
Honolulu Is again reminded that a
fight against bubonic plague calls for
the continuation of a strict guard all
along tho line for weeks If not
months. It Is a long road that has no
turn, but the greatest danger Is that
tho people will he misled Into care
lessness by tho mirage created by a
temporary rift In the clouds. As was
stated In tho Instructions of the Citi
zens' Sanitary Committee, one case of
plague will lock tho city up as securely
as one hundred.
Vo seriously question the advisabili
ty of withdrawing any of tho regula
tions made by tho Citizens' Committee
at Its Inception. At tho end of twelve
days wo find the city In practically tho
same position as regards freedom of
business traffic as It was on the 12th of
December. It seems tho epidemic has
been stopped, but tho case at Walklkl
shows that tho disease has found its
way to a new district by somo under
ground route. Business men and the
people generally fret under tho re
strictions which the houso to house In-
Bll'UlllJll vuilllin. 11 la m uu uuj'i-ii uiuj -
will not bo too quick to
respond to nn npparent advantage.
Tho object to which every ef
fort should be centered Is to open tho
port of Honolulu. Tho losses nnd In
convenience resulting from short busi
ness hours ntc ns nothing when com
pared with the losses which one case of
plague will occasion through continu
ation of the quarantine. Tho Asiatics
cannot be ti listed. They must bo
watched carefully until the last vestige
of danger Is passed. To ,ct up on tho
Inspection means that Chinese nnd
Japanese will heroine moic indifferent
than ever. Prom n business stand
point alono Honolulu cannot afford to
allow tho withdrawal of a single In
spector or mako the regulations of tho
Citizens' Comlmttee less strict.
HAWAII NEEDS A DELEGATE.
Tho Government and the Planters'
Association have threo known repie
senbitlvcs lobbying In Washington for
their Interests. Tho Olaa settlers sent
an attorney from hero and havo a firm
of Washington lawyers engaged prose
cuting their claims, but tho Island of
Hawaii as a wholo has no one. There
aio other matters than Olaa lots which
interest the peoplo of Hawnll, and It
needs someone in Washington to In
form Congress. Some months ago It
was stated that Representative Loeb
enBteln would go nnd that ho would go
without remuneration. For several
weeks tho matter has remained dor
mant, but the time for legislation on
the Hawaiian bill draws recklessly
near. A short time ago Mr. Locben-
stein expressed himself as being will
Ing to sacrlflco hia personal Interests
to tho future good of Hawaii by leaving
ma business and proceeding to Wash
ington where he has many friends in
Congress. The public has so far dono
nothing toward organizing to send
him, preferring, evidently, to wait nnd
let matters settlo themselves. When
tho bill Is passed and Hawaii finds
that It Is no nearer self-government
than It was during the monarchy or Is
nt present, when tho peoplo find that
ono community has tho chicken nnd
Hilo has tho bone It will bo too lato
The action of tho Doard of Health In
Honolulu during tho recent quaran
tine troubles Is a strong argument In
favor of a bill which will provldo for
towns to havo local self-government.
It Is not enough for tho bill to iiroildo
that tho Legislature may onnU such
laws as will tend toward glvlnu com
munities local government; tho clauso
should bo mado mandatory, for if tho
isianu or Hawaii with Its minority lep
resentatlon goes beforo tho LeglMa
turo nnd asks for such privileges as
will lead to a better government, tho
man who Introduces tho bill will bo
promptly turned down. Tho law ic
gardlng so trifling a matter as n sldo
walk In Hilo reads so that tho matter
rests entirely with tho Minister of tho
Interior, nnd tho Hilo sldowalka aro
sufficient evidenco that ho docs not
glvo tho matter much thought. It Is
generally believed that Honolulu ob
jects to Hilo or tho Island of Hawaii
generally from being elsewhero than
under Its thumb, and with tho pull
which tho monlcd interests of that lo
cality can dovelop tho public can rest
assurod that under tho Cullom bill lo
cal government would bo ns far distant
ns at present. Tho people hero do not
bcllovo that tho situation is clearly
understood In Washington, except by
tho commissioners, nnd thoy favor tho
bill. It Is not probablo that a member
of cither Houso of Oongress, who do
Ilghts in proclaiming tho beauties of
freo Amorlcnn Institutions, would lend
volco to tho passago of a bill that puts
tho power of govornmont in tho hands
of a fow, and thoso few in ono locality,
Mr. Loobenstcln is a forceful speaker
and his offorts In righting what is, to
Hawaii, manifestly wrong, would bo
crowned with success. No ono Is moro
familiar with lands than Mr. Looben
steln and his presonco In Washington
would bo of value to men lntorested in
tho bill as well as peoplo hero, but It
Is not probablo that ho will go unless It
Is tho wish of tho peoplo to get some
thing nearer right than tho Cullom bill

Shortly beforo dinner time nt Knllhl
camp Saturday Superintendent Mc
Veigh called In nt Dr. nnd Mrs. How
ard's rooms In tho administration
building nnd asked that Mr. Hcmcnwny
and Dr. Pratt bo called. Ho had Bomu
Instructions to give. As soon ns all
had gathered there ho began a speech
dwelling on the valuable services ren
dered by Dr. Howard, Dr. Garvin, Dr.
Pratt and Mr. Hemcnway In connec
tion with tho camp work. In recogni
tion of this he had tho honor and pleas
ure of presenting to them somo slight
tokens of remembrance which ho hoped
would always be retained by them as
a souvenir of their sojourn nt Knllhl.
Mr. McVeigh then took four pack
ages from his pocket and distributed
all but the ono for Dr. Garvin which
will bo retained until tho return from
Maul ot that physician. Dr. Howard's
package contained a handsomo silver
badge with a red cross In tho center
and tho inscription in black: "Medi
cal Superintendent, Kallhl Camp."
The badges of tho other physicians
were tho samo with tho exception of
tho inscription which reads: "Physi
cian, Kallhl Camp." Mr. Hcmenway's
badge was In the shapa of a shield with
tho inscription: "Superintendent
Guards, Kallhl Camp."
At about 10 o'clock a supper was
served in tho parlor of Dr. and Mrs.
Howard's quarters. Toward tho end
of this Dr. Howard arose and in appro
priate language, presented Mr. Mc
Veigh with a most excellently mado
badge, the central part of which Is tho
Hawaiian coat-of-arms taken from u
Hawaiian dollar and handsomely
enamelled. The badge bears tho in
scription- "Superintendent Knllhl
Camp." Mr. McVeigh was complete
ly surprised and gnvo his warm thanks
to Dis. Howard, Pratt and Garvin nnd
Mr. Hemcnway for their kind remem
