True to Its historic career, the "his
toric dickey bird In the dainnfuler tree"
seta up a plaintive wall und calls names
when at loss to present a defence that
will bo accepted by the people. The
official organ knows even lu lis most
ponderous moments that Its publica
tion of the bills Incurred for the sup
pression of the bubonic plaguo has I" .
a prctcuco and a fraud. It has also
taken every opportunity to discredit
Individuals agalnut whom It harbors
soma petty political or personal spite.
Having been forced to follow lu the
pathway marked out by the Bulletin In
giving the news, the organ iuus'
necessarily feel bitter and revengeful
Uotivca that prompt utterance of ou

known to warrant serious comment.
OUR" MUNICIPAL POLITICS.
Tho solemn platitudes that cmanat
from tho Social Science Club are sel
dom of sufficient Importance to inert
tho paaslng attention of tho averag
business man or tho practical man o
affairs accustomed to dealing with ecu
dltlons not theories. OcriMonn'
this organization of wise men steps
outsldo a profound discussion of tho
Immortality of tho soul und kindred
When this outcropping of a practical
view Is discovered to tho general com
munity. It Is almost without exception
found to bo a blind lead which offers
well at the start but when developed
shows the nuggets of priu:tlcul commoa
sense few and far between and mighty
small at that The discussion of muni
cipal government by Mr. Colo, as re
ported by tho oOlclnl organ Indicates
that it has not remained to the Execu
tive head of the present governmental
organization to offer an exception to
prove the rule
Tho position taken by Mr. Dolo laay
bo accepted as the general opinion on
American municipal government held
by the so-called missionary clement of
the country, although as is well known
the name Is n misnomer according to
the general acceptance of tho term
outside thcao Islands.
In the first place, Mr. Dole and his
compatriots have acquired their know
ledge of American national and muni
cipal government exclusively from
books and an occasional few weeks or
months trip to the States. They wpic
born nn Ueducated under tho nctuil
rulo of a monarchy, a weak one tit thr.t,
and based upon tho general scheme of
European government. PosaesseJ cf
one good fortune, strong American an
cestry, their wholo political iMucntlon
has been upon tho lines of how tho
people can bo ruled, rather than hrw to
Bectiro tho best mlo by tho pcoplo.
They know nothing of practljal Ameri
can political life and appear to dcslro
to know less of that American condi
tion where tho laborer stands on tho
eanio footing as tho "best poo,ilo."
Getting close to tho people Is us
foreign to tho teaching of Mr. Dole
and those whom he represents ns It Is
to tho roynl family of Oroat Drliiln or
l8tratton that will moot tho book
made opinions of tho gentlemen who
talk wisely and practlco the policy of
"rule or ruin."
In tho estimation of Mr. Dole and hi 3
associates, tho Republican party and
the Democratic party aro nocessarlly
corrupt. These organizations repre
sent "politics. "Our Party," taking Us
cue from personal thoorles, Jealousies,
ambitions and monarchical principles
Is the only true blue, Illy white, Simon
pure, incorruptible ruling clement
holding SL Peter's keys to the only
political heaven, that should be allowed
a voice In tho administration of the
cities of Honolulu or Hllo. As it can
not prevent It "Our Party" admits that
Republican and Democratic organiza
tion may havo a voice, in terrltsrIM
affairs. When It comes to tho pre
serves of municipal rule, however,
"Our Party" must bo altowcd full
swing and tho people affiliating with
national organizations loyal to prin
ciples applicable to overy town end
hamlet of the United States must be
"Our Party" Is non-polltlcal be
cause it Is "Ours." All others sinailc
of "politics" and aro corrupt. "Our I
Party" has said so and it must bo so.
The logic Is splendid egotism and big
otry. Anyone who thinks dluVmin ly Is
a member of the Ward Flvo Club of
Hades with tho Devil as "bass, and
"Our Party" will not comblno with him
unless they wont to carry a point.
In other words, tho party that re
ceived the support of Theodore Koosc
vclt, Cornollus Bliss, D. F. Tracey, and
men of equal Intelligence and national
repute, In the municipal campulgn of
Greater New York Is not worthy to
conduct tho municipal affairs of Hono
lulu. "Our Party" based on tho Scth
Low theory to establish a bosslsm of
"our own" must assume, control. Tho
party that made Plngrce Mayor of De
troit and Governor of Michigan, tho
theparty that mado McKlnley Governor
of Ohio and President of tho United
States, tho party that mado It poMlblo
for Hawaii to become part and parcel
of the greatest and grandest, '.he raont
liberal nation on earth, this party, thj
Republican party cannot be trusted to
give Honolulu an honest, liuslnc.-.s-llko
administration. Tho franchise must bo
restricted, Tim Murray's club cowned
and tno working classes its found
among tho natives and Portuguese sunt
out from participation In public af
fairs. Tho principles laid down by the
Congress of tho United Stales aro not
to be accepted; Congress Is a political
organization and not to be trusted.
"Our Party" knows moro than Congress.
