In lieu of In7lf lighting episodes Mr.

There's no question of Honolulu's
Four...i of July celebration being a suc
cess, provided tho Fireworks Com
tnlttro Is prcrared to leport Its pre
paredness nt the first gathering of tin'
clans. Mr. Kennedy always reports a
small supply and each year the display
Is tho best on record. If Kennedy
dashes tho hopes of tlio eclcbrators nt

The political platform of some of our
good frlcndR Is based on the principle
that during a national Republican nd
ministration Hawaii should bo strongly
Kcpubllcnn nnd send n Republican del
cgato to Congress: when the adminis
tration Is Democratic Hawaii should
follow tho same pathway and send n
Democrat to Washington. To follow
this proposition to Its logical conclu
sion, Hawaii when applying for State
hood should request as a special favor
that we bo allowed to elect our Sena
tors and Congressmen nftcr all the
other States havo cast their vote for
national representatives. Wo nro a

THE CREDIT SIDE
In tho midst of all this counting
the cost of the plaguo epidemic In Its
effect upon tho treasury, tho people
should not forget tho credit side of the
balance sheet nnd tho more or qsh
thankless work that has been dono by
members of tho Board of Health.
When It comes to tho final disposi
tion of tho public money used, It Is tho
people cf tho city, tho merchants nnu
worklngmen Into whoso hands this
coin has largely fallen. It Is tho mer
chants, somo of whom fretted under
the strict rules enforced ngalnst Island
shipments, who profltted from the pur
chaBo of supplies, and tho laboring
classes who, by virtue of tho Immenso
amount of work demanded In tho con
st! uctlon of camps for the homeless,
were stiadlly employed at good wages
at a tlmo when tho business commun
ity was retrenching nnd tho day labor
er was In a fair way to havo his usual
sourco of Income endangered If not en
tirely cut off. In tho capacity cf
guards nnd assistants at tho camps
tho skilled and unskilled laborer hay
found work. But for this It Is safo to
say thcro would havo been not a few
homes whero actual destitution would
havo been faced. Butcher, bakor and
candlestick maker have, in tho midst
of tho general calamity, nil shared In
tho benefits derived from tho oxpendl
. turo of funds now so severely criticised.
While tho comnrmunlty Is congratu
lating itself that trafllc onco more as
sumes the oven tenor of Its way, nnd
the voice of harsh criticism turns Its
ctrUcnt tones toward the Board held
responsible for "wasto of money," It
can do no harm to stop for a moment
and giro the Devil his duo, If the work
of the Board of Health cannot bo look
ed upon In a more cordial light.
Say what they will
money, no class or faction of tho peo
pie can discredit the honesty of uctlvo
and forceful energy with which Dr. C.
D. Wood as leader and the men as
sociated with him on tho Board havo
dealt with tho situation. With
no rewnrd other than tho speedy nt
tnlnmcnt of tho object sought by every
citizen of tho Islands theso men have
given their time and with everyonu
of them their tlmo was good money
to tho accomplishment of a moBt diffi
cult and soul-trying task. Their own
prlvato Interests were allowed practi
cally to run themselves that no detail
of tho duty to tho public should bo
alighted. This duty was to savo llfo
nnd remove from tho business com
munity tho burden of a plague stricken
To this end they havo faced bitter
criticism and tho nntagonlsra of short
sighted egotists who did not hesitate
to forco strife when In faco of tho com
mon enemy. Members of tho Board of
Health nro not angels nor havo they
shown themselves possessed of the
omnipotent power apparently claimed
by their critics. But aside from the
money proposition, which has practi
cally nBSsumcd a political phaso and
doubtless would whether tho expendi
tures were fifty cents or fifty mllllont,
the people should not fall to recognize
and express their appreciation ror inn
constant, honest, untiring effort which
has characterized every act of tho men
looked upon as tho lenders of n cam
paign now apparently closed. All they
huve got out of It Is numerous klckt
and cuffs, occasional support, occas
sional condemnation, chicken today
feathers tomorrow. Now that theso gen
tlemen arc able to return to work of
picking up tho looso ends of thcli
neglected private Interests, tho lean'
iho public can do 13 to express its
.cindiy appreciation for nnd ncccpt tht
accomplished task in the spirit wnlcli
