When It comes to the discussion of
expenditures authorized by Minister
Cooper, the morning organ announces
that tho boot Is on the other foot. This
Ij not unexpected. Dut put a big
mark on the Government building
wall. Tho organ has admitted that
thero aro times when thcro aro two
sides to a, question.
Rattling around somewhere In tho
midst of this chaos Is a Court of
Claims for the organization of which au
thority was received about a month
ago. Since the work of this court will
cover a long period and the pcoplo need
tho money, It Is to bo hoped our au
thorities will move with a Ilttlo more
than their accustomed speed.
Between waiting for tho quarantine
to let up and returns from Washing
ton that will dctcrmlno our future gov
ernmental character, Hawaii's nnx
ious scat Is in a decidedly crowded
condition. If tho Board of Health
will relieve tho embargo on merchan

wards removing tho tension.
Minister Damon's siting up of tho
situation after tho loss of Income

be prepared for a general reorgani

der tho territory. A proper corpora

will particularly appeal to tho small

It Is hardly necessary to state that
tho Dulletln has for many months been
advocating tho appropriation of de
partment funds by tho Council of
State. When tho Dulletlu docs not
win out, In splto of tho combined gov
ernment opposition to American meth
ods,, tho event is ono of the exceptions
that proves tho rule. Gradually even
tho Hawaiian government is coming to
appreciate that -tho one way and tho
only way to successfully administer tho
affairs of an American territory Is to
hew strictly to tho American line.
GETTING THE NEWS.
Publication by tho Dulletln of n
complete rovlow of tho Hawaiian bill
as passed by tho United States Senate
gavo a good oxamplo of tho continued
success of tho Dullctln In giving tho
people tho news and tho truth about It
In advance of any of Its contemporar
ies. Simultaneously with tho publica
tion of tho Scnato bill bythls paper, a
contemporary gavo tho announcement
that copies of tho House bill of which
n very full rovlow had been given by
Associated Press despatches about two
weeks ngo, "had been received In Ho
nolulu." It forthwith proceeded to
glvo a now review of tho bill less com
plete than that furnished by tho As
sociated Press. And this was dished up
aa "news." It was "news" as Judged
by the Dulletln's contemporary. It was
not only second hand, but was merely
tho bill as reported to tho Houso of
Hcprcsentatlvcs and Is likely to bo
changed throughout beforo finally
enacted by the body.
Whllo tho Dullctln was spending
money and effort news gathering In tlio
Interests of Its patrons Its government
contemporaries wero wool gathering
and devoting all thrlr time to working
up material with which to make per
sonal attacks for political purposes.
Tho Utilletln's contemporaries did not
publish tho Senate bill for the very
good reason thnt they did not have tlio
document In their possession. The
comparntlvo vnluo to tho community
of a bill passed by tho Senate and n
bill reported to tho House needs no
The Dullctln led tho way In obtain
ing tho latest Assoclntcd Press news
from San Francls'co, It was the pioneer
In securing a special Washington cor
respondent, and at all times It gives
all tho news and the truth about It.
Thnt tho people appreciate tho work In
their Interests Is evidenced by the con
stantly Increased subscription list,
street Bales and advertising patronage
for all of which tho Bulletin makes
COUNTING THE EXPENSE.
Tho principal valuo of a discussion
of tho expenditures mada during tho
plague crisis will be the demonstra
tion how well those who havo posed
as captious critics have performed the
tasks placed upon them. Every citi
zen of those Islands appreciates that
It would bo a soven day wonder were
tho pcoplo and tho authorities to
emerge from tho difficult situation
thrust upon them by the plague and the
Chinatown Are without some mistakes
made and some money wasted. As a
rulo tho pcoplo havo risen above per
sonal effort and political strife and
joined their effort as becamo minly,
broad minded men. Some of our good
citizens, however, saw fit to bring into
tho campaign an clement of critical
comment which resulted in adding In
creased complications to a state of af
fairs already fraught with difficulties.
This criticism continued to tho point
of questioning tho motives of men of
recognized honor and Integrity. That
these men held quietly and manfully to
their task unmindful of the rattle
brained attacks upon them was not the
fault of tho critics.
Now that tho tlmo has arrived when
a trial balance can be taken tho people
have nn opportunity to size up the ac
tive agents for what thoy aro worth.
By no means tho least responsibility
resting upon the leaders was the prop
er expenditure of the peoplo's money.
According as men in permanent and
temporary authority show that they
have madp every dollar count, they will
bo deserving of the confidence which
tho pcoplo placed in them. To thoso
who assumed only to do their best,
having at all tmles tho Interests of
tho community at heart, the taxpayers
will bo disposed to accept tho will for
the deed. Tho wiseacres who assumed
to know It all nnd run the wholo affair
rough shod when their Individual
opinions wero not followed, the pcoplo
naturally havo n right to ask, what
havo you dono with your talent?
ANOTHER UUPNING QUESTION.
To burn or not to burn that's tho
question. In a maturely considered
editorial last week, the News sug
gested tho propriety of removing Ka
hulul from Its present sito to a place
where It would bo perfectly freo from
plague taint. Whether this will bo dono
or not, Is a question which vitally In
terests everyone who expects to do nny
business In Kahulul, from tho hum
blest Chlucso peddler to tho lnrgcst
vessel which loads and unloads there.
Dut whether tho whole town be moved
or not, there Is still n question the de
cision of which Is awaited with Inter
est, and that Is whether or not tho
storo buildings Infested with plague
smitten rats shall bo destroyed with
Tho News thinks that the govern
ment should placo n fair valuation on
this property stores, warehouses nnd
nil other buildings which nro known to
ho Infested with Knhulul rats and burn
them at once. Tho people, tho mer
chants, tho shippers nnd above nil tho
sugar planters simply cannot afford to
take nny chances on having tho plague
break out again nt Kahulul, and It la
rto bo hoped that tho Hoard of Health
will fully and faithfully Investigate
this matter, nnd If they arrlvo at tho
decision that tho public health und
safety depend on tho destruction of
these, buildings, then they cannot bo
burned too soon.

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have ycu 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 fur 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 ot tne interior grades.
To buv the best Is money In pocket: to
buy the poorest Is moaey wasted. We
