All Is not lost when Honolulu can
Bt full fledged negro minstrel aggre
gation to crock n few Jokes whllo the
plague quarantine lasts.
Considering tho forco nt Its com
mand the Post oraco Is to bo commend
ed for tho manner In which tho Aus
tralia's mall wns handled. Tho delay,
however, waa sufficient to convince the
business men that tho necessity of
more money for this dcpaitment Is by
no means Imaginary.
Wray Taylor always has some good
money making schomo to offer when
funds arc needed for charltablo pur
poses. His proposal to turn a post
poned free concert to good financial ac
count ought to meet with a unanimous
approval that will prevent any possible
embarrassment of tho Hawaiian Relief
It behooves the Board of Health to
prepare to recelvo a request from the
business community for more radical
measures In lifting the quarantine now
Imposed on merchandise. Danger of
further spread of tho plague having
been reduced to a minimum, the situa
tion has rcacheu a point whero the
people are convinced that tho hard
ships imposed on business traffic can
be reduced In n marked degree.
Democrats who saw a great oppor
tunity for the creation of political capi
tal from tho Imposition of a tariff on
Porto Rlcan goods, now find their bal
loon punctured by tho President's re
commendation that all duties collected
from Porto Illco slnco the United
States assumed control be refunded
and used for public work in tho new
possession. It Poito Rico profits by
its tariff schedulu In proportion as Ha
waii has since annexation, It will find
its depleted coffers full to overflow
ing when the tlmo comes two years
hence to givo Its people full American
It Japan does not soon go to war
with Russia, it will not bo for want of
good reason for such action. A war
In the Orient is as inevitable as was
the American fight to free Cuba and
iho conflict in the Transvaal. With
tho general scheme of European dip
lomacy based on grabbing as much of
Oriental property as possible, it is only
a matter of tlmo when patience will
cease to bo a vlrt,uo and n. final dccN
slon can bo rcachod only by a resort
to nrms. Japan already has the nu
merical forco nnd naval equipment to
copo with Russia. Tho war will await
merely the proper financial backing.
Rev. Sheldon's expcrleuco with run
ning a newspaper on the lines sug
gested by his book "What Would Jesus
do?" may result In Mr. Sheldon re
vising his book. It Is a very easy mat
ter for theorlzers to stand aloof, quote
texts and tell others what should be
dono, but when It comes to shouldorlng
tho burden personally, tho gentleman
who knows how It should bo done con
ducts the busluess In the samo man
nor as the average sinner who Is sup
posed to have no ideals but tho grasp
for coin. If tho lifo of Jesus shows
anything It Is that He adapted him
self to circumstances. Mr . Sheldon
will doubtless have to do the samo nnd
there are plenty of people whom he
presumes to preach at following tho
samo principles without making a pub
lic powwow over it.
When tho baud of fato strikes down
a young man of tho recognized worth
and ability of Harry Waterhouao, our
peoplo rcallzo that this country posses
ses n family compact which knows no
political division or factional strife.
Hawaii's Isolation establishes a com
munity of interests nnd a personal ap
preciation of individual character In
tho business community which tho
rush of business or friction of compe
tition cannot wlpo out. Tho peoplo
have a personal Interest In all their
young men and sorrow for a break In
tho ranks of tho boys of integrity is
felt not alono by the family and Immediate-
associates, but by the com
munity nt largo. Tho sympathy ex
tended to tho bereaved wife and rela
tives Is not of tho indifferent, perfuue
tory typo that passes current as a mat
ter ot form. It Is heartfelt and honest.
The life of Harry Waterhouso was a
type of young manhood ot which Ha
waii has rcJKn to be proud.
COUNCIL OP STATE DUTV.
Objection has been raised to the ap
propriations made by tho Council of
3tnto because that body takes less
tlmo Investigating tho Items of ex
penditure than tho Legislature docs.
It Is true that tho Council of State usu
illy accepts tho say so of tho Exccutlvo
Council nnd appropriations of thou
sands of dollars are authorized In a
very few minutes. As tho Council Is
usually called upon only nt time? of
;reat emergency when tho people at
large appreciate tho necessity of the
demands upon tho public purso no ob
jections can bo raised to tho record of
Whon tho Council of State takes up
tho subject of general appropriations,
however, It behooves Its members to
devoto moro time to the consideration
of tho bill In general and In detail.
Tho appropriations to bo presented to
tho Council tomorrow aro emergency
measures to bo sure, but the Council
Is assuming practically tho full au
thority of tho regular Legislature 'find
should glvo plenty of tlmo for the va
rious uconlo interested to be heard
from. The country at largo has been
kept In complcto Ignorance of what tho
Exccutlvo Council has been doing In
connection with tho appropriations, ox
ccpt that tho totals asked for In tho
departments aro published. The people
aro not disposed to question the hon
esty of tliu Executive Council, but they
have had reason to question Its Judg
ment. Ample opportunity should bo
allowed for a full discussion of the
new appropriation bill In Honolulu and
tho other Islands. This opportunity
the Council of Stnto can glvo and
should allow by tho organization of
committees and the publication of tho
appropriation bill as Is dono by tho
Legislature. Honolulu has always
been charged by the outsldo districts
with hogging It all when It comes to
the question of public funds. In many
lnstnnccs this claim against Honolulu
has been Just. Sinco tho body author
ing tho present appropriation Is com
posed wholly of Honolulu men, especial
enre should be taken that tho chargo of
favoritism shall not bo placed against
Its final action. It has taken tho Eio-
cutivo Council about a month to pro-
pare this bill. Tho people should now
be given a chanco to learn what it con
tains and an opportunity to express an
opinion beforo It Is passed.
Hawaii wll gain nothing by lndulg
lng In a spasm of fear should the
plague outbreak In San Francisco
prove to bo the truo article. The Fed
eral authorities will not view the dan
ger to these Islands or any other part
of the United States with Indifference.
As Honolulu called on other districts
of the Islands to place confidence with
tho local central authority, so Hawaii
may rest assured that tho Marine Hos-
Ital servlco of the United States will
uit oxposo the p"coplo hero to unneces
sary dangers. The people of this coun
try from Hawaii to Nllhau will do woll
to accept the regulations of Federal
authorities without other comment
than active support.
CAUSES NO TROUBLE.
Hllo Is not tho whole thing and nover
claimed to be, consequently the citlzenu
should not be held responsible if tho
Culloni bill should pass. Tho Herald
has tried In many ways to stir tho peo
ple of tho Island of Hawaii In tin mat
ter of sending a delegate to Washing
ton, but the peoplo would not bo stir
red. Hllo represents Hllo ami A tow
miles of territory Immediately adja
cent It does not even reprcseut Olna.
Tho matter of sending a representative-wns
scarcely broached when Olaa,
without coming In for consultation,
and without a suggestion to Hllo as tho
most logical courso to take, dispatched
a delcgato to Congress and thero ho
Is. If tho truth Is told In W. N. Arm
strong's letter to tho Advertiser, unil
republished here, it Is a question
whether tho results obtained aro high
ly satisfactory. Tho Dolo oligarchy
lms been painted In sucli sombre colors
that It looks as though tho Senate com
mittee would lllto to take lands nnd
all away from the Islands rnthor than
havo them dealt out by such a "deal
and steal" set. Falling In that tho com
I mlttco recommends that tho deeds to
public lauds bo ratified nt Washing
I ton Instead of Honolulu, and this
means that tho oflico ot registrar and
receiver of tho land department will
bo about as pleasant a dream as muni
cipal government under tho Cullom
bill. It is qnlte truo that tho American
Settlers' Association ot Hawaii did
stop the salo ot lands hero and against
mighty strong opposition. It Is also
truo thnt nothing better than tho sll
lng of lands by tho Hawaiian Govern
i raent seems to have been thought of by
the United States Congress up to tho
1 present time. Tho plan of having
deeds verified at Washington means

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
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 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.
To buv the best Is money In pockets to
buy the poorest Is moaey wasted. We
