Hllo may do well to send Represen
Utlvo Locbcnsteln to Honolulu ns a
delegate to appear before tho Council
Tho kindly reception accorded tho
Inter-Island steamers on tho other Isl
ands should bo credited to the calm,
j?ood sense of tho people along tho
lino to Hllo and way stations lather
than their great desire for provisions.
Hllo appreciates, as does Honolulu,
that tho strict embargo on trado cannot
continue Indefinitely and has very na
turally accepted readily such measures
as will aid tho return to tho regular
That the representatives of tho pres
ent Chinese Government should object
to any progressive organization of
their countrymen Is to bo expected.
Thh however, should not bo consider
ed a. good reason for any progressive
American or Eutopean country placing
obstacles in the way of followers of the
Chinese Emperor. Tho Chlncso Pro
gressive Association Is working along
tho lines of national loyalty and per
sonal Independence taught them In 'he
American communities where they le-sldo.
Justice Krear stated this morning
that ho understood Chief Justice Judd,
who resigned bis position Dec. 4, 1899,
Is still drawing his salary. Wo con
gratulate Mr. Judd on the continuation
of his Income. Dut what sort of a Job
Is it that tho Exccutlvo Council ap
pears to be putting up on tho taxpay
ers? Is every member of tho compact
who resigns to bo pensioned to the
amount of his salary until some ono
is appointed to fill tho place? The
salary of tho Chief Justice of thu Su
premo Court Is 16,000 a year.
Jt Is to bo supposed that Mr. Dole's
statement to tho President that tho ab
senco of Chief Justice Judd "has, to
somo extent, been an Inconvenience in
the Supreme Court" is an evidence of
diplomatic. correspondence. Aa a mut
ter of fact tho absenco of tho Chief
Justice seriously crippled tho Supreme
Court, and had tho matter been proper
ly presented to the President tho pecT-
ple aro not disposed to believe tho
appolntmentwould have been delayed.
American diplomacy consists In stating
facts In plain English and making a
Vigorous effort to securo the nctlon
which tho situation demands.
On what basis the Executive Coun
cil made tho distribution of appropria
tions for public work among tho Isl
ands has yet to bo explained. A re
capitulation of tho appropriation bills
presented to tho Council of Stato makes
the problem still moro dimcult to
solve. When a comparison Is mado
with tho amount of taxes paid tho gen
eral government by tho various Islands
It appears that the allotments for addi
tional public work on Islands other
than Oahu fall far below tho propor
tion of taxes received from these dis
tricts. Hefcrcnco to tho report of tho Min
ister of Finance shows that from the
orlous taxation districts for the year
1899 the following amounts were received:
Oahu 486,861 32
Maui, Molokal, Canal 165,211 47
Hawaii 282,858 18
Kauai and Nllhau 143,186 30
Total $1,068,117 27
Out of a total of $1,068,117.27 received
from taxes during 1899 more than one
half enmo from islands other than
uanu. ino lsiunu m iiuwuu nmcu io .
put down ns tae principal mcaier oi
tho operations of future small farmers
pays more than one-half as much taxes
as Oahu the commercial center of tho
Act 2 offered tor the consideration of
tho Council of Stato carries appropria
tions to bo drawn from Current Re
ceipts to tho amount of $995,353.41.
Striking out such Items of this appro
priation ns come under the head of
"unpaid bills," also items coming un
der the various departments that may
be considered "national" or territorial
In character, It appears that a total of
$o26,650 Is divided among tho Islands
for special public work as follows:
Kauai and Nllhau
The Pacific Hardware Co.,
Fort Street, corner Merchant
Tho latest utterance of the morning
organ In connection with tho publica
tion of the plaguo cxpendttvo account
contains the following:
"As to tho publication of tho plaguo
accounts we aro .Informed that the
propriety of passing, them to print
must bo determined not by the Financo
Committee nor by tho Roaid of Health
but by the Minister of the Interior, Mr.
Young. The public thereforo waits
upon his pleasure."
Is this a forerunner of the announce
ment that Minister Young does not
consider It proper to glvo this state
ment of expenditures to tho public?
The pcoplo will await with Interest
whether Minister Young will refuso to
grant tho taxpayers a statement of
how and why their money has been
expended. Tho anxiety of tho official
organ for such publicity has apparently
INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL FORGIRLS
What has becomo of tho Industrial
School for Girls? It will bo remem
bered that tho establishment of such
an Institution met with favorablo ac
tion by tho last Legislature. Minister
Cooper as tho head of tho Bureau of
Public Instruction began to mako
preparations for carrying out tho work,
when It was discovered that tho Item
had been lost In somo Way from tho
final appropriation bill. The necessity
for making provision for wayward girls
is admitted on nil sides. It was admit
ted by tho Legislature. Everytlmo a
young girl Is brought Into tho pollco
court, tho necessity becomes apparent
to tho authorities, who must consign
tho offender to prison, and to the peo
ple. Why should tho Council of State
hesltato, as tho Exccutlvo Council has
hesitated, to recognlzo tho necessity
for such an Institution by appropriat
ing tho funds necessary to begin tho
work? Thero can be no good reason j Mr. Dole, of course, la abovo any
for further delay in withholding pub-1 considerations of "politics," but in go
Thus Oahu gets about 80 per cent of
the new work to be done under govern
ment direction. Tho Island of Hawaii
Is awarded a little over 17 per cent,
Maul and Molokal less than 3 per cent,
Kauai, Lannl and Nllhau, practically
Turning to tho appropriations mado
from tho Loan Fund, It appears that of
the total $831,991.20, there Is $691,000
that may bo classed as devoted to ob
jects from which special local benefit
Is derived. Tho division is mado along
tho following lines: "
Oahu .....'., .,.'!;.., i$414,000
Total ,.yt. $691,000
Again Is evidenced a' strong tendency
to cut down heavily on tho other Isl
ands. Oahu gets two-thirds tho whole
amount. Hawaii and Maul divide the
As has been previously stated by tho
nulletln, the Council of Stato is not
warranted in cutting down tho appro
priations mado for this Island. The
greater portion of tho funds are to be
devoted to tho completion of sanitary
measures, which cannot be, must not
bo slighted. On tho other hand It
should not be forgotten that thero are
other districts than Honolulu In tho
Hawaiian Islands whero private enter
prise and commercial development,
which will eventually make full return
through increased taxes, will be seri
ously, checked by a parsimonious poli
cy that falls to grasp tho situation
with a masterful hand and falls to ap
preciate thnt all tne Islands are sharing
In tho marked progress apparent today
and nssured for tho future This Is a
million dollar country. The Council
of Stato should realize, that, whatever
the limitations of tho Executive Coun
cil, tho present legislative body Is sup
posed to rlso abovo tho standard of a
municipal board of aldermen. Prog
ress throughout tho group should bo
tho watchword of governmental effort.
To assure this, progress appropriations
should bo granted tho other Islands
with n moro llbernl hand than Is evi
denced by tho Executlvo Council's pio-posals.

FOR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
ped to think what a difference there Is In
the makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
are bouRhthecause the price Is low. It Is
oltep 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, ynu would have a suit for
the,boy that would always look well and
outwear two suits of the Inferior grades.
