Discomfiture of the otllclal organ In
connection with "KnmaalnaV letter
published In tho Hulletlu Is not sur
prising. Tho Dullcttn would remind
Its esteemed contemporary that ho
lnughs best who laughs last.
Tho pcoplo of this eouutry have too
much confidence In tho capacity of tho
leading business men of Hawaii to fear
that wiping the contract labor law off
thoBlato will destroy or seriously check
tho progress of our Industries.
Tho Hoard of Health cannot act too
promptly In taking steps that will al
low greater freedom of trade between
tho different Islands and with outsldo
ports. As the Citizens' Committee has
found it necessary to chango tho house
to house Inspection scheme, so the
Health Hoard Is practically forced Into
a general change of policy that will re
duce tho restrictions on tramc. This
future policy must bo designed on
broad lines nppllcablo to thp situation
whether tho plaguo lasts for a month
or a year.
Restrictions to which all merchants
aro now subjected were made on tho
basis that the plaguo would bo prompt
ly "stamped out." Through no fault
of tho authorities or of the Intelligent
pcoplo of tho country this end has not
been accomplished. Tho epidemic has
been stayed. With tho contlnuanco of
tho house to house Inspection there Is
every reason to believe, It can ho held
In check. Tho Inspection system as
now organized can bo continued for a
year if necessary, or longer.
Trado conditions as they exist to
day, however, cannot continue. The
avenues of Intcr-lsland tralllc must bo
opened up, to allow at least as much
freedom of trado and travel as Is now
granted In ports of tho United States
at which Hawaii's cargoes and passen
gers enter. Nor can Hawaii continue
Its present restrictions on foreign com
merce Tho people and tho authorities
must deal with tho situation as it is,
not as it ought to be. Commerce can
not stop. It must move cither back
ward or forward. Present regulations
tend toward serious retrogression.
Hawaii must meet tho situation so
far as posslblo as it Is met in the
Orient, where commerce continues
without serious let or hindrance.
NO CONTRACT LABOR.
Apropos of tho destruction of the
contract labor system by the United
States Senate tho Advertiser's remarks
would Indlcato that Hawaii Is not only
not ready for nu American form of
government but will not bo for some
years to come. The peoplo of Hawaii
and United States Senators aro unablo
to understand how tho proprietor
of tho Advertiser establishes
a consistent connecting link between
tho utterances of his antc-anncxatlon
pamphlet and post annexation editor
ials. The Advertiser editorial remarks
aro a direct refutation of statements
of tho pamphlet.
The Uullctln and tho business com
munity at largo do not share tho fears
expressed by tho government organ re
sulting from tho ub3oluto wiping out
of tho contract labor system. With
tho great majority this act of Congress
was anticipated as a forcgono conclu
sion. They usked for nu American ter
ritorial government, and every man of
nverngo American Integrity nnd senso
knows that tho pcoplo of tho United
States will not countcnanco any form
of contract labor In any territory
Tvhoso citizens receive tho full rights
and commcicial privileges of tho Unit
ed States government.
Many, If not all, recent agreements
mado with Japancso Immigration com
panies provldo that in caso of labor
ers deserting their places shall bo Oil
ed by tho Immigration companies.
While under tho territorial law it may
bo Imposslblo to forco tho companies
to fulfill their agreements, no serious
difficulties need bo anticipated in con
nection with Japancso laborers, who,
as has been shown recently, readily nc
qulcsco to tho advlco of their consul.
By tho ttmo tho territorial bill Is
In forco Hawaii will havo had nearly
two years in which to prepare for
changed conditions. It this period has
not been Improved except to mako
larger Importations of contract Japan
ese, tho peoplo of Hawaii cannot rea
sonably expect the Senators and Con
gressmen of tho United States to grant
further privileges. Tho power of tho
Inbor unions of tho United States Is
far greater than can bo mustered by
Hawaii's prlvato IntcrcstB. United
States legislators would bo tintrno to
their constituents and American prin
ciple, If further concessions wero mado
to tho peculiar labor conditions of this
Hawaii should be gratlllcd that tho
territorial bill as it now stands Is bo
thoroughly Americanized. Having re
fused to discriminate In our favor as
regards labor, It will bo practically Im
possible for tho sugar Interests that
seek discrimination against our pro
ducts to bo successful.
CIVIL ENGINEERS COMING.
II. Watcrhouse & Co. havo been ad
vised by Frasor & cnalmers, of Chi
cago, that II. A. Allen, their traveling

IT IS SAlDfC?
That Thos. A. Edlsnn used to walk up
and down every night In front of the first
house he lighted with electricity until the
llRhts were extinguished, (or fear that the
house would burn down; and we are sure
that any Irsurjnce man present, If his
house were wired and lighted In the same
way as th.it first building would be a
gfoJ deal more scared than was Edison.
In the short space of time tint has passed
since then so many imrrovements have
been introduced that now n liou-e lighted
by electricity is a better fire risk than with
any plh:r artificial light.

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have yru ever stop
ped to think what a d'fferei ce there Is In
the nukes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
in bounht because the prlte Is low. It is
01 ten the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the surstantlal
makes. This theory seems to be based on
the idea that any kind of a suit Is good
enough fi.r h Niv, as he will sonn V.'far it
out. That Is not good economy, for If you
would t ay a little more, and consider qual
ity and make, ynu would have a suit for
