Tho Advertiser pleads not guilty to
tho chargo of being an organ. This bo
lng tho caso tho morning Journal may
bo considered as Mr. Dole's second
Ofllclal organs ot tho Hawaiian gov
ernment havo dug up another candi
date for governor. Hon. Cecil Brown
Is on his way to New York, and the
Dolo government Immediately sits up
nlghtB wondering whether Drown seeks
governorship honois. This demon
strates what marked confidence our
officials havo In tho future. Their pipe
dream that Col. Samuel Parker is not
a candidate for governor Is amiiBlng.
Another soug for "Tommy" wns
handed to the Bulletin by a British
Hympathltcr who believes Mr. Roberts
lias been far more successful than
Rudyard Kipling In expressing tho pa
triotic character of the British people.
Tho sentiments brought out by Rob
erts aro certainly on a higher level
than thoso of Kipling and the acts of
British citizens throughout the world
aro not such as to give force to th6
sentiment that Britons forget their
principles or the men In the fighting
Tho Anglican Church Chronlclo ex
presses regret that "tho necessity has
arisen to turn a part of Nuuanu valley
Into brick field." Tho Chronlclo's ob
jection Is on tho same plane as opposi
tion raised to tho erection of unsightly
factory buildings In country towns
whoso quiet has not previously been
disturbed by tho "hum of Industry."
To disturb the tropical scenery of our
valleys naturally grates harshly on the
artistic mind, but tho Interests of the
peoplo arc best served by tho land be
ing decorated with tho landmarks of
progress, though one of tho marks be
n brick kiln.
Tho Board of Health Finance Com
mittee, which ought to know better,
baa apparently fallen Into the general
Dole government policy of "Tho pub
lic bo blowed. ' There Is absolutely no
got.- reason why thore should be fur
ther delay In paying out the money duo
local merchants for goods supplied the
Board. Apparanetly money Is being
refused honest morchants whoso bllU
are not open to question becauso c
Tow, bare In tho estimation of tho
committee, mado overcharges. The
protection given tho public purso by
guarding against overcharges Is ap
preciated, but payment ot all bills
should not bo withheld because a few
require investigation. Pay out tbo
money. It was not appropriated for
tho purpose of holding up tho mcr
cnnnU. The constitution of the Republic of
Hawaii gives the Council of State au
thority to "appropriate public moneys,
when, during tho time Intervening be
tween the sessions of tho Legislature,
tho emergencies of war, invasion, re
bellion, pcstllcnco or other great public
necessity shall arise." If sufficient
forco of clerks to ao tho work of the
Post Ofllco, and sulllclcnt number of
Custom Houso employes to protect tho
merchandise Imported by our mer
chants, Is not "a great public neces
sity," tho public would Ilko to know
what explanation Minister Damon and
tho Kxccutivo Council havo to inako of
their duty to tho public. The conditions
minting in theso departments call for
Imnicdlato action to supply funds,
that tho duties ot tho government bo
properly performed. Tho country
might better havo no government de
partments, than allow present Custom
Houso conditions to continue. With
tho port free to nil comers, tho honest
merchant would bo on tho panic foot
lug as tho men who seek to land con
traband goods or cscapo tho payment
of import duties.
In Its referenco to tho cutting down
nf Post Ofllco forces, tho Hawaii Herald
voices tho sentiment of tho whole
country toward Mlnlstor Damon's re
cent ruling. Tho Bulletin is not dis
posed to believe that Mr. Damon's ac
tion has been prompted by a desiro to
increaso tho surplus. Wo do believe,
however, that ho is rollowing a mis
taken policy in holding that such de
partments as tho Custom House and
rost Ofllco must Btop or bo seriously
crippled in consequenco of tho falluro
of the last Legislature to foresee tbo
wonderful progress of tho country. The
situation was expressed in a nutshell
by a gentleman interviewed by tho Bul
letin, who said, "It Is not to bo sup
posed that tho peoplo must stop send
ing letters because tho legislature
failed to appropriate money for tho
Government to buy stamps." Nor Is It
to bo supposed that tho peoplo will en
dorso a policy that causes lack of effi
ciency In publls departments.
FOOD AND LABOR.
If reasonable proof can bo obtained
that further progress jf tho plaguo Is
directly traceablo to Asiatic foods, the
work of deatroylng this matorlnl can
not begin too soon. With tho excep
tion of Chinese goods tho proof Is thus
far wanting. Tho authorities aro not
warranted In saddling tlu public treas
ury with tho prlco of all Asiatic foods
until satisfied beyond reasonablo doubt
that public welfare demand? such ac
tion. In considering tho demand thnt will
bo mado and necessity foi allowing
continued traffic In ABlallc foods, It Is
Impossible to reach a fair conclutlon
by comparing local conditions with
thoso existing on tho Mainland. As
wns pointed out In Chairman Knox's
report on the Hawaiian bill, of our
present population, 130,000, "the
greater proportion aro Asiatics Chl
ncso and Japanese." It may bo a com
paratively easy matter to forco this
population Into tho use ot American
staples provided tho Asiatics nro al
lowed sufficient wages to purchnso tho
nlghcr priced supplies.
Tho majority of the Asiatics are re
ceiving not moro than $20 a month,
which averages lower than tho Asiatic
wages In tho States. That the Asiatics
In Hawaii accept lower wages is duo
largely to their ability to sccuro their
cheaper national foods. To malo a
radical and imnicdlato change, to cut
orf the supply will havo a serious effect
on tho heaviest financial interests ot
tho country to say nothing of tho mer
chants whoso income depends upon
tho trade in foodstuffs.
Aro tho plantations prepared to as
sumo the additional expense of suo
plying laborers wltn American and Eu
ropean foods, or ready to face the diffi
culties likely to arise through tho
Asiatic supply being cut oil? The re
cent difficulties with Olaa Japanese aro
said by some to bo duo to tho Increased
price of rice. Tho ugly mood of tie
Japanese is ono evidence of tho Import
ant part cheap food plays In plantation
work dependent upon cheap labor.
The Asiatic is bucu an Important
factor In tho business llto ot the com
munity, and tho returns for bis labor
aro so small that this question ot foods
cannot be properly boivcu by an arbi
trary stroko of tho pen in tho bands
of officers in control.
KOBALA RAIlWAY PROGRESS
Hllo, March 1. Tho Hawaii Herald
Judgo O. K. Wilder and wife and
Herbert B. Gchr and wlfo will leavo
overland this morning for Waimea and
Nlulll. Tho visit of tho gentlemen nt
this time la In relation to tho location
ot tho northern terminus ot tho Ko-lmla-....o
Railway and whllo they aro
prospecting tho ladles will remain at
Tho first division ot tho railway be
gins at Hllo and ends nt Hakalau gulch
a dlstanco of fifteen miles. This divi
sion for this dlstanco will be built very
closo to tho beach. Commencing at
Hakalau gulch it will movo mnuka,
but this route will not bo surveyed un
til after the acceptance ot tho plans for
tho first division.
Tho matter of northern terminus will
bo settled within a tow weeks and a
selection will bo mado at either Kawal
hao, Mahukona or Puako with Kallua
as a possibility. In order to get from
waimea to tldo water, tho lino must
fall 2,600 feet and to obvlnto tho neces
sity of a zigzag lino a long loop will bo
built and this will end near Kbcn Low's
place. Messrs. Gehr nnd Wilder ox
pyt to bo absent about two weeks.
Tho plans of survey of tho first divi
sion aro complcto nnd will bo sent to
Honolulu by t..o mail tonight for ac
ceptance by tho Government. When
tho company receives satisfactory In
formation from Minister Young grad
ing work will begin and as soon ns tho
material arrives tho tracks will bo laid.
CUTTING DOWN POST OFFICE.
Minister Damon has given out that
In order to keep expenses within cur
rent receipts n reductllon ot expenses
must tnko placo and ho proposes to be
gin with tho postmasters. Until It is
so stated tho public will not bellovo
thnt his order will apply to tho local
post ofllco whoro tho bale of stamps
nlono amounts to $1,000 a month, nnd
tho expenses, including all tho mall
carriers In tho district, amount to less
than half that sum. To tho profit from
ealo ot stamps thero should bo added
to the Incomo of tho Hllo ofllco com
missions from salo of money orders
and tho registry of letters. A reduc
tion nf salaries may bo advisable, but
for Mr, Damon to strike the most im
portant and most rcsponslblo bureau
ot tho Government in order to, presum
ably, rebuild tho surplus is unwlso.
Tho duties ot the employes of the pos
tal bureau aro sacred and only tho
best men should bo assigned there.
Tho services of tho best men cannot
be procured for less remuneration than
they now receive. How would it do to
placo tho salaries of the Ministers back
to tbo old amount?

FOR THE BOYS. Have ycu ever stop
ped to think what a difference there is In
the m.ikes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
txt bought hecause the price Is low. It Is
often the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the substantial
makes. 1 his 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.

That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up
and down every night In front of the first
house he lighted with electricity until the
llRhts were extinguished, for fear that the
house would bum down; and we are sure
that any Irsurance man present, If his
house were wired and lighted In the same
way as that first building would be a
g'od deal more scared than was Edison.
In the short space of time that has passed
since then so many Improvements have
been Introduced that now a house lighted
by electricity Is a better fire risk than wltfc
any other artificial light.
