Minister Young's expressions re
garding tbo prompt extension of the
aower system Is characteristic of that
sontleman's public hnd prlvnto career.
Honest and straight for wind In nil mat
ters Minister Young's administration of
tbo Interior office has evidenced n
strict regard for tho Interests of tbo
people. Ever watchful against n waste
of money ho stands ngHlnit n policy
that Is penny wise and pound foolish.
In considering tho bids for construct
ing tho extended sewer system the Bul
letin believes it voices tho sentiment of
tbo entire community In stating that
tbo tlmo when this system will bo
ready for use Is a matter of paramount
Importance. If thero uro those who
consider it advisable to save money at
the expense of delay they have not an
nounced It. Action, prompt action Is
tho sentiment of the hour. Money must
not be wasted and wo can trust Mr.
Young thut It will not be, but tho speedy
installation of sewers throughout tli
city Is of far greater financial Dcnefl
to tho people of these Islands than sav
Ing a few thousand dollars on a con
tract by extending tho time when th
work will be completed.
It will bo remembered that In his re
marks before the Council of Slate I)r
Wood laid particular stress upon thi
absolute necessity of tho completion jf
tho sower system In order to place
Honolulu In proper sanitary condition.
The light ngalnst tho plague would be
seriously handicapped until this won
was done. No guaranteo of success li
this fight could bo given until the cess
pools wero wiped out. It was 1):
Wood's forceful statement of the situ
atlon that gained the unanimous and
prompt action of tbo Council of State
in appropriating money for tho work.
No business man or Hawaii could of
fr objections In tbo face of tho condi
tion now existing and likely to con
tinue while tho city Is at tho mercy of
the present system of drainage which
Is practically worse than none.
The nrgumeutB presented to the
Council of State are now before the
Minister of tho Interior on whom tbo
responsibility for further action rests.
The opinion of tho peoplo Is un
changed from that which cordially en
dorsed tho prompt recognition by tho
Council of the unquestionable demands
of tho situation.
The day when Honolulu can bo de
clared an open port, the day when the
quarantine on mercnanuiso and pas
ccngers from this port can bo raised
depends upon tho Installation of mod
ern sewage facilities throughout tho
city. Every business man, every tax
payer, every householder on this and
every other Island has a direct and per
sonal Interest In this affair. Nono can
afford tho oxpenso of delay. Tho draft
upon tho surplus In fighting tho plague
Is n mere bagatelle when compared
with tho losses that have been suffered,
and tbo end Is not In sight, by virtuo
of tho long period of strict quarantine,
by virtuo of tho long period of strict
Minister Young Is on tbo right tack.
Ho can rest assured of tho unanimous
support of tho people when ho makes
tho tlmo of completion a factor of
first Iraportanco In awarding tho con
tracts. For Blue nnd the Grny.

FLOODS OP JAPANESE
San Francisco, .March 22. The Im
migration officials of this port and So
attlo are considerably alarmed by the
large Influx of Jnpanese lo tho United
States. Within tho past week over 700
of tbo little brown men have set foot
on theso shores.
Captain Scholl of th') Immigration
office stated today that 240 Japanese
arrived by the Hoiigkong Mavu, 5
by tho Gaelic And tOO by n vessel that
arrived nt Seattle a few d.y ago. It is
expected the vessel now on tho way
will bring hundreds moiv, nnd tho re
turns for tho month on the P. id lie
Slope will show a gala in the Jitpsiu
esc population of at least 4,000. Cap
tain Schell says that the Jnpanese are
not Idle long. They go to missions and
headquarters and aro employed mostly
as farmers through theso Institutions
The music and specialties wore

Mr. Murray mado his reappearance
and was enthusiastically received. Tho
fow performances In which tho gentle
man had to fix himself In tho favor of
tho 0rphcum'8 cllentclo wns evidently
not wasted. The repealed encores to

positive that air. Murray Is n favorlto

The Orpheum Quartet Is again on
tho bill and making their usual "hit"
in a tramp "turn." Mr. Murray Is now
singing second tenor nnd Mr. Adams
baritone, a very igireablo chango by
tho way, ns Mr. Adanw is now singing
within tho rango of his volco, which, It
allowed Its proper place Is very pleas

Blow to "Industrlnln."
The reduction of the dividend of tho
American Sugar Iteflnery Company nr
"sugar trust" from 12 per cent a year,
which it has so loug declared, to a
rato of G per cent Is a blow to public
confidence In tho entlro rango of "In
dustrials." When theso great corporations were
organized last year, no argument was
stronger, moro pertinent or more fre
quent than tho example of tho sugar
trust, capitalized at four times tho
valuo of tho refineries united in It.
managed in secrecy, never publishing
reports, and yet for seven years de
claring a regular dividend of 12 per
cent, and for fifteen years under va
rious corporate forms declaring largo
profits nnd paying thorn.
Tbo present reduction In dividend
comes as tbo result of a war with com
petitors, extending through two years.
The sugar trust melts cbout two-thirds
of the sugar consumed, or some years
after Its organization, aided by various
causes, It succeeded In adding to tho
profit on refining, and saddling tho
public with tho cost. Competition has
cut mis profit down to nothing or
less than nothing.
No "Industrial" In trndo which may
not faco n like competition nay, Is
not certain to do so bfore long.

Ff .R THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
pe i to think what a difference there Is In
trs makes of boys' clothing? Many suits
ar . bought because the price Is low. It is
o' en the price that governs the purchaser,
a J not the quality or the substantial
n ikes. This theory seems to be based on
t e Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
cough for a boy, as he will soon wear It
( .t. That Is not good economy, for If you
.ould pay a little more, and consider qual
I y and make, you would have a suit for
le boy that would always look well and
itwea' two suits of the Inferior grades.
