Hawaii never had reason to repudiate
the acts of tho Provisional Council,
why should It now be nfrald of tho
Council of State?
T.vcu with tho 15 per cent duty on
hor trado with tho United States, Porto
Uleo Is a hundred per cent better off
than under tho old Spanish rule.
From tho tone of tho European press,
Uronje by his surrender has accom
plished more for tho cause of Doei
Independence than years of active
lighting would havo done.
The appointment of R. D. Slllimun as
temporary Judgo of tho Circuit Court
meets with general approval. Tho Bul
lotln is pleased to note tho disposition
to drop tho foolish "carpet bagger"
cry which has gone up from time to
tlmo slnco Hawaii waB annexed.
It somo means could now bo pro
vided for tho uppolntment of a Chief
Justice- of tho Supremo Court, tho legal

When tho Democrats raised a cry
against tho "billion dollar Congress,"
Tom Reed quietly replied, "This la a
billion dollar country." If the million
dollar estimates of tho beads of bu
reaus cause our legislative- power to
Btagger under tho Increased appro
priations, tho people should remember
that this Is a million dolbtr country.
With first class men at tho head of
tho sanitary inspection nnd new build
ing inspection tho possibility of Ho
nolulu suiferlng n relapso Into Its old
ways Is reduced to a minimum. Tho
next thing to guard ngalust Is tho pos
sibility of tho lcg.-.ativo authority re
ducing appropriations to an extent
that will prevent the continuance of
Ill making up legislative estimates,
beads of tho various bureaus should
not bo unmindful of tho outsldo dis
tricts. ho marked development
throughout the country calls for largo
Incrcaso all along tho lino. Honolulu
Is not tho only center of population
that requires largo expenditure of pub
lic funds to keep paco with tho prog
ress of prlvato enterprise.
In the magnificent display of British
gallantly nono furnishes a brightor
pago than tho regiments from Canada
nnd Australia. Tho wiseacres who pre
dicted an Indifferent Bupport from
British colonies showed nbout tho
same forco of Intellect as tho Spanish
statesmen who foresaw civil strlfo as
Boon as tho United States Government
undertook to frco Cuba. Blood and
national blrthiight tell when n crisis
comes. That there are not moro colo
nial regiments on tho lighting lino ts
not duo to u lack of willingness on the
part of Canadians and Australians.
Prompt recognition by tho snipping
connnlttco of tho demands of mercan
tile houses shows tho honest purposo
of tho health authorities to open up Inter-Island
truffle as speedily as possi
ble, glvlug all Interests a fair field
nnd no favor. Having effected a solu
tion of tho local problem ,tho authori
ties will do well to turn their atten
tion to their nctlon shutting out for
eign goods. Prompt action In dealing
with tho Japancso imports will fore
stall tho serious diplomatic complica
tions likely to arise from tho assump
tion of power which, to say tho least
Is questionable. Thero will bo enough
local claims to answer for without
Invoking difficulties with foreign coun
tries via Washington.
ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY.
Indeed tho Cabinet Ministers are as
suming n heavy lcsponslblllty In pro
paring tho appropriation estimates for
tho consideration of the Council of
States. But what arc Cabinet Minis
teis for and what Is the piovlnco of
tho Council of State, the territory s
existing legislative body If not to as-
! sume responsibility and see to It that
the country's business goes on unlm-
pcded7 Will It redound to tho glory of
any Cabinet ..unisior or any niemuur
of tho Council of Stnto, If ho ap
proaches tho present situation with
fear nnd trembling and seeks only
sufflclcnt money to partially fulfill pro
gressive governmental demands until
tho first territorial Legislature meets?
Is tho welfare of tho people of these
Islands best Bcrved by such a half
hearted, halting trrmbiy policy? Is
there nnyono In tnis country prepared
to state that the present conditions
ftneed upon the various departments
bespeaks special credit for nny official
or confers benefits present or future
upon the citizens of tho territory?
There aro times In tho history of J
commonwealths nations nnd back-
woods towns when ofllclalH aro In a
measure forced to take tho bull'by tho
horns and go ahead, not only nssume
tho responsibility for tho appropria
tion of public funds but bo prompt and
business like In tho expenditures, that
tho progress of tho state or municipal
ity shall not bo brought to n stand
still by nn Innocuous and llfolss ad
ministration. The various Ministers of tho Hawa
iian government aro railed upon to
request and tho Council of Stnto Is In
duty bound to appropriate sufflclcnt
funds to supply tho demands of a pro
gressive country, not of a burg sliding
gradually backward In tho bcalo of
commercial Importance and wealth
Tho question every public ofllcer
should dotermlno Is tho amount of
money required In each and every de
partment to keep paco with tho de
mands of an Increasing population, an
Increasing foreign commerce, a stead
ily Increasing industrial development,
In fact, tho demands of a country about
twlco tho size of Hawaii of two years
It Is uniortunato that Hawaii has no
Legislature. By tho grace of tho Unit
ed States Congress and President Mc-
Klnley, however, the government is
not forced to sit In financial sackcloth
and ashes until tho Legislative Moses
appears on the scene n year hence.
Tho authority of tho Council of State
cannot under tho circumstan
ces be seriously questioned.
Governments wero not constructed to
collect taxes nnd delay progress; exe
cutive nnd legislative officers aro not
placed In positions of trust, to shirk
responsibility. 1 ho Council of State
Is the only plcco of furniture tho Isl
ands possess. It behooves tho people
and officials to get all the uso out of It
they can while. It lasts.
With tho number of American work
men constantly increasing In Honolu
lu, tho tenement house problom will
como home to tho pcoplo of tho city
with greater forco than In former
years. A progressive city with many
wealthy philanthropists should offer
something better than Asiatic shacks
as a homo for tho workingmnn. Mod
ern tenements that will furnish decent
homes nt a. reasonable rcntul Is a ne
cessity of such importance that tho
pioneer In this work has fame nnd
possible tortuno nwaitlug htm.
Tho district of liana has thus far
broken tho quarantine) record. When
pcoplo rcftibo to lccelvo mall from tho
outsldo world, It Is safe to nssumo that
they aro pretty badly scared or havo
como to tho decision that tho Ufa of a
hermit Is an Ideal existence.
From tho tenor of lato war des
patches It will not bo surprising if
Gen. French blossoms out suddenly In
tho vicinity of Blomefontcln.
a LABOREUS NOT WANTED.
Tho peoplo of Maul generally and
the Maul officials especially, havo
stood by Honolulu loyally during her
troubles, nnd havo endeavored In overy
wny posslblo to comply with wishes as
won as tho regulations of tho Hono
lulu authorities, and they aro still will-
lug to do so.
But thoy do not feel that vessels
should bo allowed to touch at her re
mote ports and dump loads of Japan
eso at will. And beforo nny moro of
this Is done, it would bo well far tho
authorities at Honolulu to at least ad
vlso tho plantation people on Maul, so
as to glvo them a chanco to absorb tho
now comers. In fact prior arrange
ments should bo definitely mndo beforo
sending any moro over so that tho now
arrivals could bo taken caro of. And If
Honolulu has a class of peoplo In quar
antine who aro not willing to go on
tho plantations to work, Maul would
havo as llttlo uso for them as would
Honolulu. Please don't send any moro
of that kind over,

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
ped to think what a difference there is In
the nukes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
are boimlu hecause the price Is low. It is
oiten the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality or the substamla!
makes. This theory seems to be based on
the Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
enough fur .1 bov, as he will soon wear It
out. That Is not good economy, for If you
would t,ay a little m6re.and consider qual
ity and make, ynu would have a suit for
the boy that wnulj always look well and
outwea- 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. '

IT IS SAID
That Thos. A. Edison used to walkuj
and down every night In front of the first
houe he lljjhted 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 hli
house were wired and lighted In the same
way as that first building would be a
gfod 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.
