The course of tbo Court of Claims
having followed the proverbial lines of
tho squirrel track , members of the
Court will have to Join Mr. Dolo nnd
climb a tree.
Life In thTcourt of Claims without
money Is like applo pie without choeso.
The crumbs of official dignity wilt re
main to Mr. Dole's appointees, until
ho Is forced to name tbelr successors.

Object to American
Navigatkn Law in Hawaii
With Mafcklng still besieged and the
Boer lighting mood In no way lessened,
tho promise of an early close of the war
seems a long way from being fulfilled.
Winston Churchill's announcement
that Lord Uoberts must havo more
troops to carry out th (policy of uncon
ditional surrender would suggest that
tho British havo yet to sco the hardest
fighting of tho campaign.
The Maul News calls for the estab
lishment of a drug store in Wa.lulai.
Having made the call It Is not likely
Maul pcoplo will have to wait long tor
the Installation of this or any other
private enterprise their newspaper
asks for. Maul will soon appreciate
that tho noccRg.iry paraphernalia of n
progressive town is tho newspaper,
tho school house and tho church. Al
though Maul put the lust first, LMItir
Robertson Is fast making up for lost
To put tho Court of Claims affair In a
nutshell, Mr. Dole apparently thought
a Court of Claims would be n good
thlug, It sounded well, nnd asked th.'
President to mako appointments. Au
thority to organize this Court having
been returned to Mr. Dolo, he discover
ed that he really didn't know what ho
had naked for. After deliberating
nearly two mouths he evolved a scheme
that was a slipshod combination ox
presslvo of incompetence, Ignorauco
and poor politics. As an inevitable
result tho members of the Court find
that the local executive power has led
them llko lambs to tho slaughter.
Hon. P. C. Jones submits his letter
to tho Bulletin with tho title "Plain
words by n plain man." Tho words are
all right but wu would substitute for
Mr. Jones' modest estimate the words
"common sense and broad minded
man." If Hawaii could havo more of
tho P. C. Jones positives American
character In Its otnclal life, the surfeit
of blunders to which the pcoplo have
been treated would bo materially less
ened. When Mr. Jones' war horse
spirit gets stlired tho peoplo can de
pend upon It that faltering and ques
tionable policies must give way.
Thero's no whipping the devil around
tho stump In his mako up.
Washington, March B0. Consider
able opposition has developed on tho
Pacific Coast, nnd paitltulnrly In San
Francisco, to Senator Perkins' amend
ment to tho Hawaiian bill, which wns
adopted by tho Senate, applying tho
coasting navigation laws of the United
States to nil vessels plying between
tho Islands and the Mainland of the
United States. Thoro is also somo op
position In the House to this same
The owners of steamships plying be
tween tho United States and Oriental
ports and touching at the Hawaiian
Islands object to Ijoln closed out of
tho business of carrying passengers and
freight between San Ht.nclsco nnd
the Sound nnd Hawaii, as they havo
been doing In the past. Tho samo ob
jections have been raised by the
steamship companies plying between
Portland and Pugct sound. Thcoo
steamship companies elalrr. that pas
senger and freight rates to tho Islands
would bo advanced and tho public In
convenienced If the coasting navigation
laws should be applied because of the
reduction of tho number of vessels
available for this trade.
Tho nllnta nt Ann Vrmpnrn hnvo nlnn
been heard from. Tht-y say that they
will not be nblo to collect any fees
from vessels licensed to opcrnto under
the coasting trado laws of tho United
States. This hits them tho harder
because at present, although they ren
der but little or no service to the cap
tains of steamers regulnrly entering
ban Francisco and other ports, under
tho State law they are authorized to
collect pilotage charges on nil vessels
engaged In foreign trado whether or
not they board the vessels.

PRESIDENT DOLE REPLIES.
President Dolo has replied to the let
ter of tho Chamber of Commerce on
the Court of Claims. Ho points out
that the regular court for tbo adjudi
cation of clniins against tho Govern
ment is the Supreme Court, going on
to say that tho great mass of work
from tho lncstlgatlon and adjudica
tion of tho Chinatown lossce would
seriously interfere with the regular
work of tho Supreme Court. So It was
deemed ndvlsablo to apply to President
McKlnley for authority to crcato a
special court for that purpose. Mr.
"Thoro Is reason to bcllcvo thpt the
Idea that tho body authorized b Presi
dent McKlnley for tho Investigation
and adjudication of Chlnntown losses
was to bo merely a board of apprais
ers, or of arbitration, to estimate the
amount of such losses on drcport their
conclusions to the Council of State."
This view was strengthened by tho
uitlon of the Chamber of Commcrco.
ns well as that of tho Chinese and Ja
panese residents who had asked to be
represented on tho board.
Inasmuch as tho dispatch from tbo
Federal Executive, however, provided
that the board might make Judgment
to bo paid out of appropriations by tho
Council of Stnte, It followed that tho
Intention "was that a court of law be
created which should adjudicate claims
for losses upon tho principles of law
"It is obvious," Mr. Dolo piocccds,
"that the dispatch in question author
izes the trial of claims based on to.'t
against tho Government, a class of
claims not recognized by tho Hawaiian
statutes as admissible. Beyond this
exception no construction of tho dis
patch can authorize the Executive to
permit tho wnlver of nny rula or prin
ciple of Hawaiian law."
Ills conclusion nnd tho nub of his
reply Is that, whllo tho admission of
one or two lnymen was not precluded,
tho court should bo composed of men
learned In tho principles of law. Ho
cites Anglo-Saxon legislation for cen
turies ns having "cndcavoicd It
eliminate tho principle of lcptcsent-i-tlon
from courts nnd Juries in tho in
terests ot Justice."
"As to tho question of laymen on
tho Court," tho President says, "thero
are no goods or other rropeity In sight
to bo appraised; estimates of losses
initbt bo mado upon evidence nlone.
