Tho niBhop Estato has given prop
erty owners along King street a lesson
in street widening that should not pass
without an attempt by other owners to
do ns well.
According to tho report fcnt to the
official organ by Cocoanut Club Delo
gato Armstrong, tho majority of the
Ilouso Commlttco on Terrltorl'-s nro
ether fools or knaves.
Speaking of squatters, land laws,
etc., it the Hawaiian government has
not granted tho llllo Railway Company
squatter rights on public land In Ha
waii, wo would llko to know under
what heading tho recent notion of tho
Executive Council Is to be classed.
Increase In tho number of Dole gov
eminent supporters Is n plpo
dream with which a fow of our officials
nre making bright their waning official
careers. As a friend wo would suggest
that they go slow In mortgaging their
balary certificates beyond tho time,
when tho territorial bill goes Into ef
fect, lie merry while you may.
Hllo Is making merry c'er the Idea
that tho death of Mrs. Scrrao should
havo been pronounced as duo to the
plague twenty-one days having pass
ed with no cases, suspicious or other
wise. We certainly hope that Hllo Is
correct In Its conclusions but It should
not forget the prlco Honolulu paid for
being over confident after tho appear
ance of tho first suspicious plague
It was Congressman Hitt who re
marked to n Bulletin representative
that tho basis of the Dole, hon.estcad
law is tho $600,000 sugar plantation.
An official of the United States Gen
eral Land Offlco stated beforo tho
Ilouso committee that lie did not con
sider tho peoplo of Hawaii capablo of
self government It the Dolo land law
1b an cxamplo of what they can do.
Tho local Government falls to appre
ciate that Washington officials and leg
islators are tho men, who after carefully
conslderlngtho matter, havo upset their
land schemes. When Hawaiian officials
show capacity for handling our lands
properly, Congress will doubtless with
draw tho supervision of tho Secretary
of tho Interior.
The largo amount of spneo W. N.
Armstrong gives Col. Little In his let
ters to tho Advertiser would indicate
that Little, in addition to his duties
ns a representative of tho American
Settlers' Association Is keeping tho
government aggregation dancing on a
hot skillet. Tho funny part of It is
that all tho aggregate and Individual
power and intellect of Hartwell, Arm
strong and Smith is unequal to tho task
of upsetting Col. Little's work. Tho
only satisfaction tho government
crowd seems to bo getting is that gain
ed through two columns of advertising
space In tho official organ. When one
man can routo tho combined forces of
Mr. Dole's special dclegato, tho Plan
ters' representative and tho Cocoanut
Club delegate, It Is an Interesting
demonstration, not so much of tho one
man's power, but of tho Incapacity of
tho government lobby trio.
That the Japanese merchants Bliould
be heard from In connection with the
Uoard of Health's regulation touching
food stuffs Is to bo expected.' Con
sidering the financial Interests effected
and (ho largo number of people depen
dent upon the mlzo, seaweed, mush
rooms, diled fish nnd dried vegetables
Imported from Japan for dally diet,
the Japanese have been very conserva
tive in their requests. Had tho re
stilctlon consequent to tho plaguo hit
the Americans as hard as It has the
Japanese we doubt whether tho sltua
tlon would bo ncceptcd with bettor
It Is very bard for tho controlling
clement to appreciate what Iosscr the
Japanese have suffered from the China
town fire, or what serious losses and
difficulties will result unless some re
vision is nmdo In tho regulations which
prevent further tiafflc In the national
foods of theso people. Tho nvcrago
citizen going over the list of neces
sary Japanese foods Is disposed to
laugh at the Idea that mlzo (a mixture
of rice and beans) seaweed, mush
rooms, dried llsh nnd dried vegetables
are necessary to existence Residents
of tho United States can't understand
why tho authorities should mako n
special effort to supply Hawalians
Tho fact Btlll remains that tho com
fort nnd contentment of over 20,000 of
Hawaii's population depends on
ability to obtain theso peculiar foods.
No officials or peoplo can arbitrarily
change n national diet however odor
iferous and distasteful theso articles
of food mny appear to Americans nnd
Europeans. l.nrgo Japanese mercan
tile firms hnvo been established which
have tho same right to recognition ns
the American grocers.
To coutlnuo present conditions
means ruin to ninny merchants nnd
serious discontent among laborers on
Tho authorities cannot view the sit
uation with Indifference. The food
stuffs now hero enn bo destroyed, by
tho government making proper finan
cial return to tho owners. So fnr as
known, no plaguo cases huvc been
traced directly to the uso of Japanese
foods, and if It bo true that theso foods
placed on tho unpermitted list of Im
ports havo been used at tho detention
camps it would appear that tho ques
tion of destruction merits further con
Whatever Is dono with tho goods
now here the Bulletin doubts tho ad
visability or authority of Hawaiian
officials putting a stop to the importa
tion of Japaneso foodstuffs. Our traf

In Washington n.. tho present time.
Commercial demands of the present
day are that traffic shall bo assisted,
not checked. Imports from clean

CRITICIZING THE PRESIDENT.
"I)y dint of considerable free
and easy lying dono both at Wash
ington and in this city, tho plot
succeeded to tho extent that tho
operations of tho Hawaiian law
wero suspended, awaiting tho fur
ther action of Congress." Adver
tiser, Feb. 27,
This is tho comment which tho offi
cial organ of tho Hawaiian govern
ment makes today upon tho ruling of
Attorney General Griggs which led to
President McKlnley's executtvo order
calling upon tho local government to
observe tho directions of tho Now
lands Resolution relatlvo to Hawaii's
public lands. That tho Dolo govern
ment should at this day, after having
failed to upset the ruling of Secrotary
Griggs nnd discredit tho President,
still assert that tho Federal authorl
tlcswcromtslcdbylles.can havo but ono
meaning. Their anger at defeat causes
them now to make an assertion im
peaching tho capacity and the Integrity
of tho President and his Cablnot This
attitude of tho Dole government as ex
pressed by Us accepted and recognized
organ calls to mind tho expression
heard in tho British Ilouso of Com
mons, "It requires no great nrt to go
in and out among men and appear as a
saint and yet slip quietly into hell
Is not to rcfuso Im
ports but to mako such provision as Is
mado in other ports of tho world for

It was suggested by a member nt a
meeting of tho Uoard of Health, after
discovery of plageu on Maul, that nn
effort should bo mado to discover tho
disposition of Chlncso nnd Japanese
freight shipped from Honolulu before
nnd Immediately after December 12,
tho day on which plaguo mado Its np
penranco there. When tho Klnnu ar
rived hero December 13 and Sheriff An
drews took steps to keep tho plague
from Hawaii, it was learned thnt a
largo quantity of freight wns for Chl
ncso and Japaneso, threo cases of
which camo from tho store of wine Wn
Tal, whero plaguo had appeared. Un-
uer instructions from tho sheriff all of
tho freight so consigned wns returned
to Honolulu, but wns brought back and
landed hero on iho next trln of tho
steamer. This Information wns ob
tained from n Chlncso merchant in
Hllo who loft Honolulu tho day the
plaguo appeared thero. All of tho thirty-two
boxes consigned to him were
opened by him and tho goods sold nnd
delivered. Ho poohpoohs tho Idea thnt
any rrcight shipped to a Chinese firm
on Maui about December 12 would be
left unopened until February 1, giving
as his reasons t.nt nil cases aro open
ed, they not being original packages,
for tho purpose of ascertaining whether
tho goods received ngrco with tho In
voices. Tho Hllo Sanitary Committee
may begin a tour of investigation on
its own account and nosslblv find

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
ped to think what a different tiir ic In
the makes of bovs' clothlnp ? M-mu cite
j are bought because the price Is low. It Is
01 icn me price mat governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the substantial
makes. This 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. That Is not good economy, for 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.
To buy the best is money In pocket: to
buy the poorest Is moiey wasted. We
make a specialty to keep the best at popu
lar prices. ' v ,
