MONDAY APK1L 'J. 1900.
It Is highly proper that nfter having
boon carvod and quartered by the pub
lic tho Court of Claims should be laid
on the table.
Can It bo that n man of P. M.
Hatch's promlneneo Is to mako a trip
to the Coast without being credited
with governorship aspirations?
Dy turning over tho Couit of Claims
to the Council of State, Mr. Dole may
hope to shift his responsibility and
thus attempt another impossibility.
Derne, Switzerland, Match 29. Ac
cording to the Delagoa Bay Hallway
award, Portugal Is condemned to pay
15,311,000 francs to tho United State
and Great Drltntu.
In 18S3 Edward McMurdo, an Amer
ican citizen, obtained .i concession from
Portugu.il to build n railroad fifty
seven miles long from Iourenzo Mai
qucs to Komatl Poort, on the Trans
vaal border, there to connect with a
lino to bo built by tho Netherlands
Company on to Pretoria, 290 miles far
ther. McMurdo organized a company
In London under the name of tho Dola
goa Day Kallroad Company for Its
construction. It was not completed
within tho tlrao set and was several
times extended, and Portugual, declar
ing the concession forfeited, seized and
completed the work. On rcmonatranco
by Great Drltr.ln and tho United States
tho matter was referred to arbltta-tlon.
Mr. WUllauiB, writing to thr Uosloii
Herald of local political conditions,
states that tho present government has
dono tho best It knows how. To the
peoplo of the Islands this 's damning
with faint pralso, since the government
for tho past two years has niado nn
It Is an open question whether Loid
Roberts' advance on tho Transvaal Is
duo to his preparations for advance or
to tho activities of tho Doers In forc
ing tho fighting. The correspondents
without exception Mate that more men
are needed to carry tho campaign to a
successful end. In rouulliig the ex
pense tho Hrltlsh have still to figure
on moro money and mow men.
Samuel D. Capen, vim president of
the National Municipal League places
"IndlfTetenco" as first of the perils that
threaten good government In American
cules. The young men of Honolulu
have an opportunity to prevent the
possibility of such a charge being plac
ed at tho door of the city of Honolulu.
Tho Young Men's Municipal League
should be a good government factor of
the not-far-distant future.
Mr. Magoon Is unquestionably right
In his contention that tho Court of
Claims la a. legal body and tho bills It
has contracted will bo paid by the gov
ernment. Tho people have yet to learn,
however, Just what Is to bo gained by
tho Court continuing its sessions In
spite of tho refusal of tho Council of
State to appropriate money for It. Hav
ing rofusod to pay the Court It Is
doubtful whether tho Council will pay
the awards It makes. The action of the
Council on Friday was a crushing de
feat for tho Executive Council, practi
cally a voto of "want til confldonc?."
Whlio the Exccutlvo is not forced to
resign, it Is forced to reconsider Its
action. Tho executive order under
which tho Court was organized must
bo revised or tho Court pass out of
existence for want of flnancia! breath.
The public endorsement of tho action
of tho Council of State Is unanimous.
In entering upon our American career
let It bo understood that the minority

The feature of today s session was an
exhaustive discussion of the pending
measure by Fairbanks of Indiana. Par
ticular Interest was manifested by
Senatois on both sides of tho chamber
In the speech In view of the nttltuda

CUSTOMS AND POST OFFICE.
Minister Damon's statement that the
Custom? and Post Office departments
have ulready selected tho men to be
added to tho force when money Is made
avallablo shows thero has been no lack
of activity on the part of tho Minister
In preparing to placo the department In
proper condition. Under tho circum

Stato to net Immediately. Tho respon
sibility for further delay piactlcally
rests In their hands alnco the an

Thus far tho career of tho Council
of Stato has been marked by prompt
busluess-llko nctlon. Dclny as regards
these special depaitmcnts has possibly
been duo to tho necessity of handling
tho Court of Claims, and n lack of
knowlcdgo of tho altitude of tha
executive. Thcro can bo no excuses
for further delay however. Tho Min

now remains for tho Council to act.

The New Year Begets
FOR THE BOYS. Have you ever stop
pe 1 to think what a difference there Is In
tr-. makes of boys' clothing ? Many suits
ar-. bought because the price it low. It Is
o'len the price that governs the purchaser,
at J not the quality or the substantial
n ikes. This theory seems to be based on
tl e Idea that any kind of a suit Is good
e'.ough for a boy, as he will soon wear It
c .t. That Is not good economy, for If you
w.ould pay a little more, and consider qual
