When is tho Hawaiian Government
to mako an effort to furnish money for
the proper administration of tho Cus

According to tho executive order of
Mr. Dolo, the Court of Claims Is "to
tnko evidence of losses caused by tho
burning of Chinatown in Honolulu,
either by direct ordcis of tho Hoard of
Health or incidental thereto, and to
mako awards and Judgments on mch
losses." Is tho public to infer that this
Court Is to give cxcIubIno r.ttintlon to
Chinatown? What becomes of tho
losses by Uro outside tnat district'.'
Does tho government accopi full re
sponsibility for all other losses suiter
ed from Board of Health fires?
On wliat basis Mr. Dolo made hlu se
lections for tho Court of Claims Is n
mystery, nnd the moro tho public stud
ies tho demands of tho nltuatlon, tho
moro tho mystery deepens. Mr. Dole Is
unquestionably a believer In tho adage
that tho little ones should bo given &
chance. Taken as n wholo tho Court Is
not representative of tho tried and
proved ability In legal circles or
nmong business men. It represents the
local Kxecutlvo'B ability In making ap
pointments. As such it will stand and
there has yet to appear tvldenco to In
dicate that the peoplj consider the
Court with favor. Mr. Dole has passed
over the heads of tho business men
completely nnd apparently delved In
kindergarten politics is usual.
Pilvato notices havius been sent out
that tbcro will bo a meeting of "tho
Republican party of the Hawnllan Isl
nnds" on Tuesday evcnlni; In Munny
Hall, it appcarB that somo of tho citi
zens of Honolulu believe that tho tlmo
for political activity has arrived. Ac
tlvo work In tho interests of tho Repub
lican paity In season and out Is to be
commended, ttvery effort, liowovor,
should havo for Its fiist aim tho success
of the party at tho polls, hearty co
operation nmong all tho Islands of tho
group ond tho ellnilnatlm; of any and
all elements of strlfo, pou'dblo ut oil
times and In nil parties.
Theio Is now and hm been for faoine
months past an honest difference cf
opinion among tho Republicans of the
Islands as to the proper tlmo for organ
ization. Theprovalllng pcntlmcnt In Ho
noiulu, backed by tho siilvlco of Sena
tor Cullom nnd Congi-owium Illtf
wlillo hero nnd later by the suggts
tions of tho National Republican com
mittee, is that no movement towaid
party organization shall bo made until
tho territorial law has passed und Ha
waii's standing In tho Union Is estab
lished. On this basis tho enthusiasts
wcro votcil down nt a meeting held
somo months ago. That meeting was
properly called, opportunity given for
full discussion nnd the result Is prac
tically binding upon tho Republicans
01 Honolulu until suoh tlmo as tho
governmental organization of tho Ter
ritory shall have been established.

In tho consideration of completion of

stands to reason that tho gain In time

tho government moro than 5,000 a

through tho continued quarantine Is
far ubovo thot figure. A gain of four
months in tho completion of the sewer

at twico $20,000. This is no tlmo to
