As u legislative body tbc Council of
Stato baa now an opportunity to obtain
tatormatlon for tbo people concerning
the use to which tho Diplomatic and
Consular appropriation has been put,
The peoplo who circulated tbo rumor
that tho Kohala railway Is belnt? built
to tell out have little appreciation of
tho kind of material that makes up
President Qehr's business character.
It Is doubtful whether Councillor
Kaulukou's proposition for salaries
will meet with unanimous approval.
Bettor add tho money, to pay the pro
posed salaries, to tho appropriations
for tho other islands. It will look
better in tho next legislative campaign.
Rumors of peace talk In South Afri
ca are not unexpected. It is what must
be expected sooner or later unless some
Ruropoan power takes a hand In the
affair. It is not reasonable to suppose,
howevor, that tbo war is nearing Us
closo, since tbo British terms for peaco
will be harsh and exacting which
atreagthens tho force of tho Boer war
cry uttered by Cronje, "I'll fight to
tho finish." The decision to transport
Gen. Cronjo to the Island of St. Helena
will bo no means lessen tho dogged
antagonism of South African Boers.
Outbreak of the plague on tho steam
er Nanyo Maru naturally attracts a
vory ftertous local Interest. Thoro Is
absolutely nothing to indicate, how
ever, that tho passengers arriving by
tho Btcamcr at this port or tho port
itself should share In tho responsibility
for tho outbreak. The immigrants ar
rived hero In good condition, passed
tho full period in strict quarantine t.nd
no plague cases have been traced to
tho steamer or Its passengers as a pos
sible sourco of infection. To what ex
tent tbo sailors were exposed whllo in
this port, It Is Impossible to say since
If any Infection wsb carried to tho
steamcrfrom Honolulu It must have
boenby vlrtuo of a determined and un
known effort to evado tho strict regula
tions of tho authorities and agents of
the ship. Chances of tbo disease being
introduced at Port Townsend aro nil,
as the Nanyo Maru has been kept In
strict quarantine with practically no
communication with the shore.
PROVIDE FOR OTHER I8LAND6.
AS was suggested by tho Bulletin
whllo the Executive Council wns flgur
ing up appropriations in secict, it bO'
hooves the Council of State to see to It
that tho outside districts of tho Islands
are not forgotten in dealing out funds
for such period as tho special appro
priations may cover. Now that tho
bills proposed by tbo Executive have
been made public the shortage of mon
ey for tho other Islands Is moro ap
parent. It does not -appear that this
Island and tho city of Honolulu has
been awarded appropriations for any
work not an lmmcdiato necessity. Tho
Indications aro rather that having
mado tho necessary provisions locally
tho Council stopped short and began to
ut down with a forceful hand. In
other words tho task created by tho
great development of the islands from
Hawaii to Nllhau has been halt done.
Tho Executlvo proceeded manfully till
It reached tho bordor lines of Oahu
nnd then lost Its courage.
As a mutter of fact tho material
progress of this country has advunced
so far beyond tho limit of public work,
that there can bo no sectional or local
strife over tho necessity for largo
expenditures throughout tilt rtrM
Oahu nnd Hawaii, Honolulu nnd Htlo

ands that require n llucral expendi
ture of public funds. Maul. Kauai,

These Islands havo risen from their
parallel to tho small country burg, in
to a center of great commercial nnd In
dustrial activity. This Is n million
dollar country. Tho duty of tho gov
ernment, tho Executlvo And legislative
power, is to keep paco with tho spirit
of tho time as expressed in privato en
terprise. Many difficulties will be en
countered. Tho ability and good judg
ment of public men will bo gauged by
tho manner In which they rise to tho
occasion and surmount tho dirflcultles.
To cry "wo can't do it" when strug
gling with an arduous task is not tho
part that public servants arc supposed ,
to play. J

The plan of battlo wns ns follows:
General Colvllle's division extended
along tho north bank. General Tuck
er had tho center reserve, and tho
Gunrds llrlgado had tho center advance.
General Kelly-Kenny's division was or
dered to make n huge flanking move
ment on tho Boors' left, following Gen
eral French, who was Instructed to
move southeast until opposite tho Boer
flank and then swing around the renr.
Every movo was admirably executed
and cntiroly successful. The Boers
were surprised, as was evident from
tho state of tho deserted camps. Twice
tho British cavalry wero nlmost in po
sition to charge, but they admit that
they wero foiled by the maneuvering
of tho Boers.

Welcome to the Queen.
London, March 8. The sccno today
In tho quadrangle of tho Palaco upon
the Queen's arrival from Windsor,
when the Lords and Commoners joined
in Ringing the National Anthem, was
unprecedented. After bowing acknow
ledgement of the official greeting, the
Queen quickly turned to Lady Buller
with a grateful smile. Then, in tho
presenco of tho legislators of the Unit
ed Kingdom, drawing tho wl.o of tho
reliever of Ladysmlth closer to hor,
sho whispered words of thanksgiving.
After scarcely two hours of rest, tho
Queen made a tour of tho city proper,
amid tho greatest excitement and en
thusiasm. She reached tho city's con
fines at about 4 o'clock. Her Majesty
was welcomed Dy the Lord Mayor and
corporation In their robes of state. The
route was thronged with people, and
the greatest enthusiasm prevailed
A quaint ceromony occurred when
tho Queen's carrlago stopped at the
Templo steps. Tho Lord Mayor, Mr.
A. N. Newton, solemnly handed Her
Majesty tho sword of state. With a
smile the Queen touched it and return
ed It to the chief executive, saying:
"Thank you for all that my city has
To this the mayor replied: "Your

Government remains assured that the

FOR THE BOYS,
Have you ever stop-
ped to think what a difference there
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 Rood
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 two suits of the Inferior grades.
