This Hawaiian bill presented to tho

Cotnmltteo on Territories Is highly
satisfactory ns Is tho prospect that tho
measure will bo given Immediate con

to suirngc, citizenship, public lands
and tenure of Supremo Court Judges Is
sufllclcnt proof of the American char
acter of contentions mado by what the
Dolo government classes as the Oppo
sition. As was anticipated, a full dis

KNOW NOT HONESTY.
That tho Jackass Press should ac
knowledge Its right to tho title by
making use of blatherskite defence Is
to bo expected. It Is also amusing as
evidencing the discomfiture of tho men
who havo been actlvo In forcing a
family row among leaders and mem
bers of this "best government on
earth" now presiding over Hawaii's
destiny. Tho organs of tho govern
ment havo not only "differed with the
Hoard." Thoy havo directly charged
members with allowing their action to
bo guided by personal and financial
The Bulletin has not shaicd In this
belief. If thcro was ever a sltuutlon
that called for confidence In the hones
ty of manhood possessed by tho men
.it the helm, that situation exists In Ha
waii at tho present tlmo by virtue of
the serious responsibility resting upon
tho Board of Health. When the gov
ernment organs directly question the
motives of officials conducting a fight
which la a II fo and death strugglo nnd
should admit of no political or fac
tional strife among honest minded
men, what reply can these organs
make when tho question of influences
guiding tho business and political ad
ministration of tho Dolo government
comes up for consideration?
Tho fact of tho matter Is, tho gov
ernment organs and the Influences con
trolling them hnvo become so thor
oughly Imbued with tho narrow mind
ed, selfish, doublo dealing methods of
the local government, that when a so
llous crisis docs arise It Is Imposslblo
for them to apprcclato or believe that
any public officer can act from high
and honorable motives or that his ac
tion can bo abovo suspicion of under
ground Influences. It Is tho bought up
puppets that chaige men with a lack
of personal Integrity. Tho Jacltas3
Press as leader In attacking tho Integ
rity of members of tho Board of Health
lias fully demonstrated Its shallow
character and clearly ovldcnccd what
dependence can ho placed on Its asser

In the U,
Washington, Feb. 16. Comparatively
few changes will be made In the Cullom
Htwallan bill which Is now under con
sideration In the Senate. This measure
which will be the oreanic act o' the new
territoty of Hawaii, ws framed by the
Hawaiian Commission, consisting of Sen
ators Cullom, Morgan and Representative
Hltt, which visited the islands in the
summer of i8o3. In one respect, however.
the Snate has already shown a disposi
tion to amend the bill. As it now stands
the acts of the Legislature, except by the
veto of the Governor and a review by the
courts, are final. This gives to the terri
tory of Hawaii a much larger measure of
self-government than the territories of
New Mex co. Arizona and Oklahoma and
the territories which have been admitted
to statehood In recent years have ever en
joyed, for, In all of those territarles, the
acts of the Legislature were subject to
ratification by t-ongress.
The feellnf of mnnv Senators Is against
granting to the new territory in the Paci
fic so much greater control of Its affairs
than New Mexico, for example, wnicn
has been a territory for half a century, en
joys, and It was intimated this afternoon
by Stnator Piatt of Connecticut that
when the proper time arrived he would
move for the Insertion In the Cullom bill
of a nrovlslon similar to that which ob
tains In the organic acts of the existing
One other amendment has been sug
gested by Senator Warren, but there Is
reason to believe that It will be the sub
ject of some debate. The Cullom bill pro
vides for a property qualification tor voters
but Senator Warren proposes that the
Legislature of Hawaii after January i,
1903, may submit to the lawfully quali
fied voters of that territory mkii changes
and modifications In the qualifications for
tor electors as it may see fit. and upon ire
adoption by a majority vote of such mod

California will try to secure the Imposi

amendment when the proper time arrived.
HAWAII BILL FIRST.
The Republican caucus of the Senate
this morning decided to add the Alaska
code bill to the party programme of legis
lation contemplated at tills session next
in order to the three measures already de
cided up m the Hawaiian bill, Foraker
bill for Porto Rico and the Spooner Phil
ippines bill. Senator Chai dler attempted
to secure right of way for the Quay case,
and claimed that it was privileged matter

prevailed, and the Quay case may be In

BERIBERI OR PLAGUE?
Seattle, Feb. 16. On January 30 the
Nanyo Maru arrived at Port Townsend
living the yellow flag. The quarantine
officers boarded her and reported her the
dirtiest ship ever In that port. She came
from the Orient, via Honolulu, and had
suspicious sickness aboard. After several
days the doctors stated the disease was
"beriberi," and that all told, there had
been seventeen cases and three deaths
among the crew. The belief Is now posi
tive that the ship was Infected with bu
bonic p ague, although the quarantine of
ficlals decline to admit or deny It, content
ing themselves with simply stating
"We have not troubled ourselves with
striving to discover How the disease got
aboard the ship. All we desire is to keep
it from getting ashore.'1
Quite a large fleet from Honolulu is now
3uarantlned at Poit Townsend, but so far
Isease is reported on the Nanyo Maru
only. Three sailing vessels were released
today with clean bills of health, but the
officl Is state that they have no Idea when
the others can be let go. Much uneasi
ness exists along the Sound on account of
the disease at Port Townseiid.
The Nanyo Maru, Tomlta master, ar
rived in Honolulu, December 18, 1809,
twenty-one days from Kobe, and came to
an anchorage In the stream. She had f 98
Japanese In the steerage and joo tons of
general me-chandise consigned to Theo.
H. Davles & Co. The passengers were
sent Into quarantine Immediately but it
was not until December 29 that she was
able to haul alongside the Irmgard wharf
to discharge her cargo. She finished this
work January 13 and, on the next day,
went to an anchorage outside, near the
bell buoy. She remained there until Jan
uary 18 sailing for Seattle on that d y.
The Nanyo Maru was here just a month.

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
ped to think what a difference there Is In
the makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
are bought because the price Is low. It Is
often the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the substantial
maKes. i nis theory seems to be based on
the Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
enough for a boy, as he will soon wear It
out. i hat is not good economy, tor if you
would pay a little more, and consider qual
ity and make, you would have a suit for
the boy that would always look well and
outwear two suits of the Inferior grades.

buy the poorest Is moaey wasted. We
