"Olvo the little ones a chance" Is the
plea now heard from tho mercantile
liouscH or Honolulu.
Just why the Advertiser should raise
the question of politics In connncctlon
with President Wood's organization of
paid sanitary Inspectors has yet to
bo explained. There Is no honest cause
Tho good faith with which tho Pow
ers liavo accepted the disarmament
scheme of the Hague conference was
brought out by Mr. Goschen, First
Lord of tho Admiralty, before tho
IIoubo of Commons. In presenting tho
British naval estimate for 30,000,000
ho drew attention to the Increased ex
penditures for armament mado by Rus-
sin, Franco and the United States. The
Czar's scheme for maintaining peace
was beautiful In theory, but practice
still proves that tho best guarantee for
peace Is perfected equipment for war.
The people of this city nnd the au
thorities should not make light of the
forco that will bo brought to bear, as
soon as tho plaguo lets up for a month,
to start up building operations In the
burned district. How long tho Hoard
of Health will bo able to hold this dis
trict In Its present stato is a question,
consequently It behooves tho execu
tive authority to make provision foi
now streets nnd tho character of the
buildings to bo constructed. Now It
tho tlmo to take up this work. The
people have tho time to devote to the
subject which they will not glvo whet
business resumes Its usual way.
PLEA OF SMALL MERCHANTS
Proof of tho pudding Is In tho eat
ing. Regulations made by tho ship
ping committee of the Board of Hoaltt
were drawn with tne honest purpose ol
assisting merchants and relieving tlu
serious difficulties forced upon busi
ness men by tho plague quarantine
Tho committee also sought to prevent
disci lmlnatlon and glvo nil Interests
a "fair show." That practice should
suggest changes Is to bo expected nnd
It Is to be hoped that the committee
will accept such revision as promptly
Complaint now comes from the mer
cantile houses In connection with the
regulation requiring that all American
nnd European goods be shipped In
original packages. This gives the
plantations nnd large commission
houses relief to the exclusion of the
smaller merchnnts. Island orders o.
tho latter usually necessitate breaking
original packages. Tho small' orders,
howovcr, are none tho less Important.
Tho losses of tho present situntion
fall most heavily upon tho houses rep
resenting small capital, which are In
consequence deserving of serious con
sideration, With tho commission
houses tho wholesale trado Is usually
carried on merely as nn adjunct to
plantation agencies. While sugar can
bo shipped their income Is not serious
ly monaced. Tho purely mercantile
houses nro dependent solely upon their
ability to ship small orders on the Inter-Island
steamers. They cannot char
ter Bhlps, and unless allowed to send
their goods as ordered, their condition
today Is as serious ns during tho abso
It is tho small merchants that stand
in most serious need of assistance, tho
largo ones aro able to stand tho slcgo
for months. Tho necessity of somo
discrimination is recognized. It sljould
bo reduced to a minimum, with tho
advantage on the side of the smaller
men If possible
RETURN FOR EXCLUSIVE
Tho business community today
comes to a full appreciation of Us do
pendenco on tho Hawaiian Electric Co.
Erory manufacturing 'establishment
using electrical power found Itself at
u complete standstill this morning and
evory elevator In business blocks was
useless. All this serious blockade.
to business is caused by the breaking
of nn englno shaft at tho eloctrlc
works. This blockado cannot bo raised
until tho electric works repair tho dam
age, Accidents will happen In the
best regulated establishments nnd the
people are disposed to deal leniently
when convinced that every effort hns
been made to ovcrcomo difficulties aris
ing from breakdowns.
The Hawaiian Electric Company
holds an exclusive franchise to fur
nish electricity to the business com
munity. Having granted this marked
pilvllege the people have reason to
expect that the corporation accepting
It shall maintain nn equipment that
will meet not only regular demands
but emergencies llko tho present. Com
parison with rates charged In cities of
the States do not Indicate that Hono
lulu Is paying n particularly low price
for Its supply of electricity. And wo
now find that tho regularity of tho sup
ply Is dependent upon tho ability of
the company possessing exclusive
rights to keep one engine In proper
It Is due tho company to stato that
breakdowns which seriously Inconveni
ence tho community have not been fre
quent, but tho people have n right to
domnnd that their grant of cxcluslvo
rights shall not bo vested In an ex
clusive motive power, which, when It
refuses to do duty, puts business inter-1
csts up a tree.
TUB USELESS DISCUSSION.
Tho attention of contemporaries In
dulging In n discussion of past history
Is called to tne statement of Senator
Vest In his discussion of the Hawaiian
bill. This Democratic Senator said ho
had been Intensely opposed to the an
nexation of Hawaii but that was now a
dead issue. "I shall support the hill."
The ways and means of annexation
will always be u subject upon which
honest men taking part In the affair
will differ. John L. Stevens was an
ablo diplomat and a man whose por
jonal Integrity and loyalty to his na
tion cannot bo Impeached. Wo do not
doubt that thcro were equally honor
ablo men on tho other side But an
nexation Is n fact and all tho yards of
past history the people of this genera
tion or tho next may reel off cannot
Tho duty of Hawaii's pooplo today
Is to "support tho bill" and assist st
far ns possible! n securing for Hawaii
tho rights and privileges granted every
citizen under tho constitution of the
United States. It has remained for the
Advertiser to stir up this old time
strife when everybody of average poll
tlcal Intelligence knows that nn at
tempt t0 convince certain Royalists
that annexation was right Is like but
ting at n stone wall. There Is as much
senso In arguing with a Confederate
soldier that tho cause of Jcfterson Da
vis was not Just. Hawaii Is American
territory and Its citizens nro American
citizens. Americans and their sympa
thizers having been successful, It 111
becomes any member of tho old annex
ation party to lead off In stirring up
the old Jealousies nnd bitterness or at
tempt to maintain political division
along the old lines.
Tho object of tho annexation move
ment from tho American standpoint
was to securo for Hawaii a stable
American government of, by and for
tho people. This object bids fair to
bo speedily fulfilled. What moro can
bo asked? Let tho past drop nnd pro
pare for a loyal American futuro In
which tho party whoso administration
meets popular approval wins, nnd the
loser "takes his medicine nnd looks
HAWAII AS A TERRITORY.
The objections which mako against
tho establishment of a territorial form
of government for Porto Rico do not
obtain in tho cuse of Hawaii. Hnwnil
is already Americanized; Porto -Rico
Isn't. In nil Its essential characteris
tics Honolulu is nn American city, de
veloped by Americans nnd displaying
tho American spirit. To bo sure, tho
native-born Americans constitute only
n minor fraction ot tho total popula
tion of tho Islands, but they aro tho
dominating force, they sit nt tho head
of tho table, and what they say Is pret
ty npt to go. American enterprise,
energy nnd resourcefulness have
changed Hawaii, nnd linvo worked
miracles In development of Its Indus
trial nntl commercial possibilities.
Still further, tho creation of a terri
torial form of government nt tho cross
roads of tho Pacific would not beget
embarrassments In tho matter of trndo
relations between the Islands and tho
Porto Hlco Is not Amerlcanlzod
yet. Tho conditions which control this
gem of tho West Indies nro fundamen
tally different from thoso that set tho
paco in tho Pacific paradise in Porto
Rico Spanish influences liavo been In
tho saddlo, and American Interests
havo played no part until recently.
Consequently gravo considerations
which may well mako Congress hesi
tate heforo raising Porto Rico to tho
rank nnd responsibility of a torrltory,
rathor than establishing a colonial
form of government, aro not lacking.
Congress may well step cautiously In
solving tho Porto Rlcan problem.

BY THE BARGAINS WE ARE NOW
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. 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 goodeconomv. for If vou
would pay a little more. and consider qual
Ity and make, ynu would have a suit foi

IT IS SAID J
That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up
and down every night In front of the first
house he lighted with electricity untlllthe
lights were extinguished, for fear that tho
house would burn 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
good 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 with
any other artificial light.
