FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23, 1000.
Tho Citizens' Commlttco will do well
to tako n lino from tho suggestion of
P. C. Jones In connection with tho Ho
tel stables affair.
Whilo Minister Young Is making
preparations for bitumen streets, the
plan should Include sufficient funds to
Keep tho streets clean. Honolulu Is
far from being a second Now York In
tho caro of Its streets.
The progressive spirit of Maul citi
zens now finds expression In the week
ly paper, tho "Maul News,' 'owned and
edited by O. B. Robertson of Walluku.
Tho first Issue Is n very creditable one
and gives promise of editorial strength
and financial prosperity. The Bulletin
extends greeting to the "babo' of Ha
waii's nowspapcr family.
latest returns from Ilullcr's opera
tions lndlcato that war news from
British sources has to bo taken with u
grain of salt. The numerous stai ts and
equally frequent retreats In tho cam
paign for tho relict of Ladysmlth calls
to the minds of many tho old "On to
Richmond" cry of tho Civil War.
Marching on I.adysmlth Is a very dif
ferent proposition from getting ih"ro.
Tho most rental kablo feature of the
opium tralllc today Is that tho markot
docs not contain a big surplus. Under
tho forced economy at tho custom
house, tho collector general has, as a
rulo a sufllclcnt number of guards to
supply half n man to each vessel In
port. Owing to tho Inability of guards
to be In two places at onco the route
for contraband goods In Honolulu Is
practically clear. .
A PROGRESSIVE POLICY.
The tone of Minister Young's tf"
markson tho completion of public work
has tne true progressive ring which tho
people like o hear. Tho Bulletin be
lieves that If Mr. Young has free swing
his words will be promptly followed by
works. He approaches tho difficulties
of tho situation In n business like man
ner that should enlist to his effort the
moral support of every citizen interest
ed In the welfare of tho city.
Tho Bulletin heartily endorses Min
ister Young's policy in forging ahead,
oven If this may entail taking some
chances ns to where tho money will
como from. It is not tho intention of
the President or any other American
official ii.nt Hawaii shall stop work In
any department of tho government or
thnt tho cxecutlvo officers shall ccaso
their labors when difficulties nrlse.
Common business Judgment suggests
that tho President will provldo somo
wnys and means by which tho business
oi tho government may go on without
serious delays. Whether this will bo
accomplished through tho legislative
power delegated to tho Council of Stato '
or sanction of tho regular legislative t
session Is a matter of comparatively
small Importance. Tho Bulletin be
lieves with Minister Young that tho
chances nro In favor of tho Council of
State. Do this as It may, It behooves
the heads of departments to bo up and
doing In splto of the handicap which
our curious position places on Immedi
As was stated by Mr. Young In con
nection with tho Wolluku water works,
when tho ucglslaturo passes nn appro
priation for public work, tho natural
supposition Is that tho work Is to bo
done. If difficulties arise it Ib tho busi
ness of tho Ministers to scheme to sur
mount tho obstacle, not to put sun n
policy of rontlnuous dolny.

NEWS JOTTINGS OF MAUI
Pacific Heights property owners have
established a precedent In furnishing
labor for tho unemployed that might
well be followed In other portions of
tho city. A special effort to furnish
employment in theso days can bo put
down as philanthropic effort. If tho
government would accept tho object
lesson furnished by private citizens,
much of the distress and crowding of
boarnlng houses would bo allovlated.
A placo to stay and an opportunity to
earn sufllclcnt money to buy food will
straighten out many of the difficulties
occasioned by tho largo army of unem
ployed now In tho city.
Tho destruction of infected Asiatic
foodstuffs presents n problem of com
paratively small Importance, as com
pared with tho Importation of new
goods. Tho Bulletin endorses tho
proposition to destroy tho goods, but
tho community must realizo that it
cannot tako any merchants property

Kdltor Evening Bulletin: Tho Ad

noto the two columns on "Duty Cnlls

tho Advertiser may bo doing Its best

out tho plague, still theso paragraphs
should havo received more careful ex
amination and tho opinions, ns to prac

on such a subject, Bhould bo well

feel that somo whose testimony might

to tho Board ot Health than mixed

Board of Health havo been harsh, somo
may say, still they had practical ex
