THE COUliT Ol5 CLAIMS.
The Uiillctln Is disposed to ngrco
with tho Jmmn Times In Its statement
thnt Its corresttondettt lins given In
Incorrect view of tho Intention of tho
Hawaiian government In paying tho
damages occasioned by the Chinatown
fire. This conclusion Is easily i cached
by virtue of tho fact that tho United
States Government, will not allow Us
local appointees to deal In an arbitrary
manner with citizens of any foreign
At the same time tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment has successfully conducted Its
scries of delays in connection with the
court of claims In a manner that war
rants thoso Interested In the affair be
lieving anything or nothing. If the
government wcro making an nttempt
to avoid responsibility for tho damage
suffered from tho lire It would bo ex
pected to carry on the campaign ulong
studied lines of delay. Certainly evi
dence is wanting to Indicate an active
deslru to respond to the demands of
tho sufferers promptly.
Moro than n mouth has passed since
authority was received by an executive
order of the President establishing tho
court. Yet tho Executive has not or
ganized the court and has given no In
formation ns to Its scopo or authority.
Judging from the letter published from
Delegate Hartwell, the Executive It
kclt Is doubtful us to what tho court
Is to do. It would apepar that Mr.
Dole asked the President to appoint
tho court nud having received the au
thority for organizing the court Is now
seeking Information as to what It is
What is tho mission of tho court?
Has it legal authority binding upon
the Treasury or Legislature or Is It
merely a board of arbitration or Is It a
commission to Investigate the accuracy
of the detailed claims filed by tho per
sons suffering losses from tho fire?
It Is tho usual policy of tho Ha
waiian government to define a policy
and allow tho people to gain their
knowledge utter It Is put In operation.
We can hardly expect tho government
to chango Its custom at this lato day,
but tho serious condition which the
losses forced upon business houses In
the burned district warrants tho de
mand that the policy of delny shall
cease, and tho court, whatever Is to bo
Its authority bo brought Into being and

WHAT WOULD SATAN 1)0?
Tho best way to determine tho suc
cess of Rev. Mr. Sheldon's work In
running a dally newspaper from the
text "What would Jesus Do" is to com

probablo result should a newspaper be
conducted from the text "What Would
Accepting tho fact that tho dally
newspaper Is one of tho world's great
est educators tho first move wo might
anticipate from Satan would be an ef
fort to make his paper as dry and un
interesting as possible, glvo special
promlnenco to long articles of a more
or less religious character and assume
a Jesuitical censorship over tho news
columns by publishing only such news
ns tho people "ought to know." Satan
would announce tho first mission of his
paper to glvo tho nows, as Sheldon has
douo and then proceed to not only
mnko tho nows n secondary feature,
cutting out n good portion of It, but
at the same tlmo warp tho news by
attacking his personal opinions to Im

Is doing In this respect. Ho would

Is one of the most magnificent "false

If the Topeka Capital wcro conducted

would be another headstono In tho
Journalistic graveyard "sacred to the
memory of tho Sheldon freak." Tho
