VKIDAY MARCH 10. VjOO.
When the Hoard of Health accounts
aro published the public may rest as
sured Hint tho Advertiser will consider
nulto proper all the largo purchases
mndo for tho Hoard by L. A. Thurston.
It Is hardly possible to guarantee tho
same nttltudo toward the purchases
made by H. K. Cooper.
Considering the fact that Ed. Towse
Is In charge of the paid Inspector
force, It Is not sin prising that the Ad
vertiser starts out on a policy of de
tailed condemnation of the work. Tho
people know, however, that the value
At a Chinese Inspector Is not to be
gauged by his ability to express his
opinions in tho ponderous and labored
terms that characterize tho morning
J. 0. Carter's standing and character
In this town Is so well known that
tho pusillanimous attack of tho Adver
tiser has neither force nor effect except
to draw attention to Its own lack of
consistent or honornblo action.. It ap
pears that as a personal friend Mr.
Carter forwarded to Senator Pettlgrew
cortaln public documents and clip
pings from tho Advertiser and tho In
dependent. Mr. Pettlgrew finds ma
terial for his utterances In many
expressions found In tho Advertiser
during the administration of W. N.
Armstrong who now prompts tho at
tack on Mr. Carter. Tho Advertiser
again proves Its right to tho title
Jackass Presa by ovldcnclng that It
has "no prldo of ancestry nor hopo of
posterity." Pettlgrew as a politician
U known In Washington as a general
bctlyachcr on account of his alliance
with tho hybrid Populist movement.
Tho Advertiser has merely succeeded
in dlgntfylug his statements and giv
ing them additional forco in conse
quence of their prompt recognition by
tho local government organ.
Pettlgrew Is at least consistent In
Ills antagonism, bitter and unjust In
many features as It may be, an 'honor
that has never yet been held by tho olll
clal organ of the Hawaiian govern
ment. ICt Pettlgrew rave If he wants
TUB SENATE BILL.
The Bulletin gives In Its news col
umns today a complete review of tho
amendments to tho Hawaiian bill ns
passed by tho United States Senate on
March 1. This was forwarded to tho
Bulletin by Its special Washington cor
respondent and suggests to tho reading
public tho valuo of being represented
in Washington by an active newspaper
man Instead of by a disgruntled poli
tician that doles out spleen for an offi
In Its more Important features the
bill passed by the Senate does not dlf
for much from tho bill reported to tho
IIouso of Representatives. Tho prop
erty qualification for voters Is very
properly wiped out, tho terms of Su
preme and Circuit Court Judges
aro limited to four years, con
tract labor goes by tho board, the
Crown Lands aro mado subject to land
laws of tho United States and provision
Is mado for emergency expenditures
pending tho election of tho first Legis
lature. Differences between tho Senate and
IIouso measures aro principally mat
tors of small dotail, tho prlnclplo that
Hawaii bo given thoroughly Ameri
can Territorial government being giv
en first importance In both. Now tho
Porto Rlcan affairs liavo been settled
In tho House, It Is probablo that Ha
waii will bo given prompt and speedy
consideration. It Is generally accepted
that Hawaii shall have n full territor
ial government nnd It is doubtful
whether any member of tho House will
mako a serious fight against tho mens
uro or will contend against the Senato
bill when tho matter goes to tho con
Tho peoplo ot Hawaii liavo good rea
son to bo highly satisfied with the
treatment tnoy liavo received nt tho
hands of tho Senato, nnd they may rest
content that tho IIouso will follow
along tho uamo lines. Tho only dan
ger of delay now npparent Is what may
arise from n strenuous effort on tho
part of representatives of tho local gov
ernment to havo replaced In tho bill
tho special features favorable to their
personal cause as represented In tho
rules and regulations of tho Ropubllc

THINGS 0' the new year. Never In the
history of neckwear Jus there been so
many varieties made of tlie very choicest
silks. Pattern designs are characteristics
of these new makes. String Ties, Puffs,
Scarfs, Four-ln-Hands, English Squares
and many other of the latest patterns are
to be found In our stock. A fine article of
neckwear has become a necessity to him
who would be well dressed. No part of

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
olten the price that governs the purchaser,
and not the quality of 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, ynu would have a suit for
the boy that would always look well and
outwear twp suits of the Inferior grades.

That Thos. A. Edison used to walk up

house he lighted with electricity until the
lights were extinguished, for fear tliat th
house would burn down; and we re sura
that any Irsurance man present, If ,hls
house were wired and lighted In the urn
way as that first building would be' a
good deal more scared than was Edison.
In the short space of time that has passed
