Japan press suggests that tho Jnpaneso
uro not prepared to admit that any of
their Gods wero mixed up In it.
That local oUiclals anticipate tho ar
rival of special ngents to look Into tho
post odlce and custom house work, as
conducted by an Incomplete force, Is
ono of tho best reasons for strengthen
ing tho belief that a serious mistake
has been made In running theso de
partments with a reduced force.
No ono can object to Mr. Olrvln's
sympathy for tho Chinese. This Is u
matter of opinion to which every man
has a Just claim. The dimculty lu Mr.
Ulrvin's Federal work Is thut ho al
lowed his sympathy and private In
terests to get tho best of his duty as
an assistant lu what Is practically a
Wbllo tho Inst despatches make no
wpcclal mention of Hawaii, tho passage
of tho Porto Rico bill in the House
clears tho pathway for tho Territorial
bill. In the Scnnto tho conference com
mittee report on the Klnauco bill and
oration on the I'hilipplno question linvo
impeded tho progress of Hawaii. No
seriouB Btumbllng blocks have appear
ed, and headway Is being made as
rapidly as could bo expected.
There can bo no dlfTerenco of opinion
on tho question of building shacks In
this town. As has been suggested by
tho Ilullotlu, public and private Inter
rats will bo best served by property
owners taking a personal interest In
tho character of buildings erected and
caro of tho premises by lease, holders.
If this Is too much to expect of tho
community It Is certain that tho peo
ple will be ovor on guard to prevent
old Chinatown being raised In districts
which have previously been free from
overcrowded nnd filthy houses.
Good cheer over the surrender of
General Cronjo has been short lived In
consequonco of Uuller's failure to make
tho headway anticipated after Roberts'
victory. As n matter of fact Cronjo's
magnificent defenso strengthened tho
Doer lighting spirit, und tho loss oc
casioned by his surrender has not dis
couraged tho Doers or their sympathi
zers. I.ndysmltu has not been le
llovcd and unless Roberts cau make a
rapid advance, present Indications
point to tho possibility of White being
unable to hold out till relief arrives.
Progress Made on
the Cable report
Washington. Feb. 27. Tho Pacific
cable bill was considered by the House
Committee on Commerce today and
much progress was mado with tho ex
pectation that the final form of the
measure would no seemed during the
day. As heretofore decided, the bill
of Mr. Shcrmnn of Now York, author
izing tho Postmustcr General to con
tract with nn American cnblo company
to transmit cnblo messages to Hono
lulu, tho Philippines, Jnpan nnd other
Pacific points, was tho bill considered.
Tho provision th. tho cablo shall be
laid "from a suitable point on tho Pa
cific Coast" was changed to tho specific
provision that It bo from a point at or
uear San Francisco.
Mr. Corliss of Michigan secured tho
Insertion of ttio following provision:
'That tho cablo shall bo first class
in material, construction, equipment
and operation, nnd callable of transmit
ting not less thnn 120 letters per min
ute. They shall oo of Amorlcnn man
ufacture and laid and maintained by
ships flying tho American flag; provid
ed if, after the advertisement, It ap
pears to tho satisfaction of tho Post
master General thn. n cablo of Ameil
can manufacture cannot bo laid with
in the period herein prescribed after
tho award is made, said cablo may bo
secured from foreign markets."
Another chango fixed the time of
completing tho lino to Honolulu nt
January 1, 1002, Instead of 1903, and
tho line to Manila and Japan by July
1, 1902, Instead of 1903.

How Japan Viewed
The Chinatown Fi e
Tho Jlyu Tsushln reports that on the
morning of tho 19th of Inst month, tho
principal business) men of Honolulu
met In tho Chamber of Commerce of
that city and passed a most arbitrary
resolution to the effect that all the
merchandise from the Orient should be
Ijuii.t". n.v u pect measure, and that
such of this nierchandUc ns was to be
found lu the Isolated section of tho
city should first bo devoted to tho
names, two-thirds of tho Invoice price
being nllowcd to tho owners of the
condemned goods by way of compensa
tion. Tho resolution was Immediately af
terward submitted to tho Government
of tho Island, which In turn convened
it meeting of tho Sanitary Uoard. Tho
latter body nt once adopted this most
burscment of $2uu,000.
Tho same day tho Cabinet accepted
the measure nnd granted the request
nnd the burning was fixed for the fol
lowing day, tho iOth. Getting wind of
this unexpected turn of affairs, tho
i principal Japanese merchants of the
city held in the mennwhllo n meeting
nt which their Consul Snlto was pres
ent, and diew up a scries of represen
tations designed to fully protect their
Interests, for presentation to tho Gov
ernment of Hawaii. They wero about
to take steps in tho matter when n
flro broke out In that section of tho
city which tho City Fathers had pre
viously decided to bo burned down.
The (lames spread far and wide and the
Inhabitants In that section who num
ber close on 3,000 Including over 800
.Tapancso wero panic stricken. Thoso
who attempted to escapo from tho flro
beyond the Isolated section were merci
lessly Intercepted by sanitary officials.
Tho predicament In which tho Jap
anese residents wcio thus placed was
communicated by some Japanese to our
Consul, who thereupon called on tho
Director of tho Sanitary Uurcatt and
the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Thanks to their Joint efforts the home
less sufferers wero removed to places
of safety. Tho Japancso Medical nnd
Charity association managed to supply
provision to over COO people who had
suffered by theso very vigorous meas
ures, up to tho 21st tilt., when the Ha
waiian Government signified that it
was leady to adopt relief measures.
Under these circumstances tho gen
eral Impression was that, ns tho Ha
waiian Government had contemplated
burning tho merchandise owned by
Japanese nnd Cbineso residents, It
looked on tho accidental (?) flro which
consumed houses nnd morchnudlso as
well as more or less of a God-send.
Presumably to prevent nny demonstra
tive agitation by the Chinese nnd
Japanese sufferers, the Minister of
Justice proceeded a few days after tho
conflagration to the stations which
sheltered tho sufferers and delivered a
consolatory speech to tho effect that
tho Government would mako tho best
compensation possible against tho
damage thoy had sustained by the fire
which was, tho Minister asserted, a
moro accident. Japan Times.

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have yru ever stop
ped to think what a difference there Is In
the makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
re bought because the price Is low. It Is
olten 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 fur a buy, ns he will soon wear It
out. That Is not good economy, for if you

IT IS SAID
That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up
and down every night lu front of the first
house he lighted wlih electricity until the
lights were extinguished, for fear that the
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 tint first building would be a
gtod deal more scared than was Edison.
In the short space of time that has passed
since then so many Imrrovements have
been Introduced that now a house lighted
by electricity Is a better fire risk than with
any other artificial light.
