The labored and poiideiuiu attempt
of the official organ to defend the
Court of Claims calls to tho public
mind, "Of all find wordi of tongue or
pen, etc" The secret of the whole
business In that your preent Execu

the first principles that govern Ameri

1. C. Jones hit two nails on thu head
at the meeting of th- Council of State
Wednesday. IamiiIIiii; oil with a force
ful report on the Court of Claims, Mr.
Jones further voiced the universal
.sentiment In suggest in,; that the In
terior department seeuro u. new Super
intendent of Public Works. Viar af
ter year has the Legislature otcd
money for public work on tho basis of
estimates given by the department,
only to find at the next session that tho
work Is not completed because the esti
mates were not Urge enough. The
people have had a surfeit of this char
acter of "business administration."
Attorney Kobertson lalivi n oolnt in
connection with tho Court of Claims
that dab been overlooked in thu general
outburst of condemnation which greets
Mr. Dole's exercise of the executive
power of nppoliitm?n:. Mr. Robertson
deals with the situation from a stand
point consistent with his attitude us
opposed to the court when first pro
posed. The prevailing sentiment cer
tainly Is that the rtuHereiw from the
Board of Health fires shoiil.1 be reim
bursed, the destruction having been
visited upon them through no fault of
their own and In the Interests of gen
eral public welfare. Tho opinion of
the business community Is expressed
In the suggestion of euother llullutlu
corn-bpondent who recommends that
the Court be made up of tin re busiuess
men and two lawyers of recognized
ability and experience who shall awai d
tho damages promptly and allow uo
further appeal. Jf, as Mr. Robertson
suggests points of law aic the most
potent factors, each member of the
Court should possess the legal capa
city and business cxperlencj equal to
that required of appointee to the Cir
cuit bench. The Court as n whole does
not now fulfill this requirement.
It Id not BurprUIni; that the sophis
tries of nonpartisan politics! am heard
as Hawaii lu about to enter upon its
American career. Having been brought
up under monarchical and oligarchical
rule where policies aro formed itrouud
tho private dinner tnbb ami the peo
plo Blven mere secondary considera
tion, it Is proper th.it Americans
should dlsplny a certain amount of
sympathy towards I In misguided citi
zens to whom tho word 'politi
cian" Is u synonym for "corruption
1st," and nro unacquainted with the
American prlnclplo of policies formed
by tho people and acceptable to tho
people. Tho keynote of tho nonpar
tisan element Is an assumption of su
perior character and authority not
delegated by the people "if you den't
bellevo as I do, you ni the ussoclato
of the devil and ndvoc.Wo of corruption.
The nonpartisan to be successful
and accomplish any rcaulU for the
benefit of mankind must work through
tho party, not In opposition. This has
been repeatedly evidenced In American
politics. Seth Low didn't bellevo it.
His education was costly, to himself
and to his party. The practlcul object
of Seth Low's effort In Greater New
York was to becomo the Republican
boss In placo of Piatt. Low failed as
ho should have failed and every man
who espouses a almtl.ir campaign will
fall so long a8 tho American Govern
ment la controlled by tho people. Pol-
lowers of Beth Low liming worshipped
n fillip god, having Jlvlilvl Hie ltepulill
en tipower for good row iiimcnt. ran
now appreciate what good leaullH they
might have iti-cotnpllatic-.l by nssiunlng
a less bigoted and lesi r'llclnlorlnl ulll
tudo toward tho people.
That party loyalty which turn Into
other pathways when It approaches tho
door of municipal government la of n
type that Is no more to bo trusted than
tho corrupt clement that thrown lis
votes with tho party offering the most
boodle for distribution. It Is votes that
count and tho practical result Is thu
same although the object to be gained
by the virtuous and tho corrupt are
PUBLIC WORKS FROM THU
ThHnks to tho carelul and broad
minded consideration given Act 4,
making appropriations from the Loan
Kund, by tho Committee on Interior
Department, tho prospects for nggres-
slvo public work throughout the Isl
ands are particularly brilliant. With
Minister Young conducting his office on
the principle that legislative approprl-,
atlon Indicates that the work shall be
carried to completion as promptly as
possible tho people have good reason
to anticipate a period of progress In the
construction of roads, bridges, wharves,
water works, etc., that will be In keep
ing with the spirit and necessities of
the time. Tho reasons which led the
Executlvo Council to full to recognize
the demands of the outside districts
It Is not necessary to discuss. The
Council of State committee has gono
over thu situation and eolved n hill
that will meet the npprovul of the tax
payers of nil districts.
In going over the commltteo's report
printed exclusively by tho llulletlu, It
appears that the following increase
has been made for ouch item named.
Kaunmua and Olaa Ilonds .... 25,000
Honolulu Harbor 1100.00"

Net Incieuuo for O.thu ....$153,000
Total Increase urged for com
mittee for all Islandx . ...f:vj,300
To this totul increase of $509,300 for
public work on nil the Islands may be
added $23,000 for tho hospital for In
curables which should be comicleied
as a general territorial Item, making
the total Increnso to tho appropriations
from the Loan Fund 7C.11.300.
It Is apparent from this statement
that tho commlttco has followed tho
wlso prlnclplo that what Is woith do
ing Is worth doing well. This old
story of making appropriation' known
to bo insufficient to cirry public work
to completion should bo relegated to
the wastebaskct along with tho numer

There Is not a slnglo Increased item

on Its new career with a bonded Indebt
edness of less than a million dollars.
In view of the demands made by Iho
development of tho Island.! the addi
tion of another iuIHIdii will not burden
tho taxpayers; It Is In fact the beit In
vestment tho people can make.

F( .R THE BOYS. Have you everstop
pei to think what a difference there Is In
th. makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
ar- bought because the price Is low. It Is
oien the price that governs the purchaser,
at.J not the quality or the substantial
nukes. This theory seems to be based on
tie Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
enough for a boy, as he will soon wear It
