GARBAGE CREMATORY 8ITB.
Every loyal American of these 1st
nnds will nccord to tho local Demo
cratic party organizers the full meas
ure of respect due honest men prompted
by strict Integrity to party principle. It
Is to be hoped tho day has passed when
difference of political opinion Is to bo
made tho nucleus for personal and
business nntngonlsms and men arc to
be crushed under tho heel of a ruling
power simply because they htuo noucst
opinions and stand by them. If fu
ture political action Is not divided on
American lines It means the old per
sonal warfare over ngaln which no man
having tho best Interests of tho Islands
at heart can hope to sec resurrected.
SPECIAL SESSION WORK.
Surely the Legislature In special ses
sion will have enough business of
pressing necessity to keep It hard nt
work the full limit of sixty days. Re
ducing tho salaries of department offi
cials and adapting tho administrative
detail to tho new order of affairs will
bo by no means tho least Important of
pressing duties of the hour. A legisla
tive session In tho early fall will give
an opportunity for the preliminary dis
cussion of municipal organization
which can bo completed at tho first
regular session of next February. One
of tho greatest dangers In the present
universal demand for city, town and
county organizations Is that of legisla
tive) haste that will mako waste and
heap a mass of practical mistakes
upon tho best theory. Everybody's
business becomes nobody's with tho
usual result that tho tlmo for action
finds public thought at sixes and sev
ens. The selection of a commission
on municipal government by a Legis
lature elected during the next six
months, will give an opportunity to
thoroughly canvass the situation, crys
tnlllze public opinion and offer to tho
regular Legislature a solid basis for
prompt action. Whllo the Territory
lasts, Hawaii's municipalities will be
of moro direct Importanccto the peo
ple than tho policies of the Territorial
Tho order of the Executive Council
that tho printing and publication of
the Hawaiian Territorial law shall hn
han'ded over to tho official organ may
or may not bo a sidelight on tho atti
tude of territorial officialdom which It
Is now accepted will be the samq ns
that of tho Republic of Hawaii. If It
may bo taken to mean, as tho action
certainly Indicates, that having ths
Bamo ofllclal head nnd tho same, person
nel throughout tho various depart
ments, tho former day system of run
ning affairs In a supremely Indifferent,
high, handed stylo, Is to eontlnuo Mr.
Dole may mako up his mind that ho
will lmvo the samo old fight on his
A largo majority of tho Republicans
of tiicso Islands have accepted the con
tinuation of tho old official schedulo In
tho spirit that becomes men loyal to
tho party and ready to sink previous
personal differences In their allegiance
to tho Republican administration. Mr.
Dole and his personal followers and ad
visors must remember, however, that
they havo a duty to tho party and upon
their fair minded, liberal action largely
depends tho ability of tho party to
overcomo the Incubus of past mistakes
of tho Republic.
Printing tho Hawaiian law will
neither mako, break or sot uji In busi
ness nny printing liouso of this Ter
ritory. There Is, howover, no good rea
son why members of tho Executive
Council, acting practically under full
knowlcdgo of their appointment to nd
minister tho affairs of tho Territory
under a national Republican adminis
tration, Bhould rldo rough shod over
tho prlnclplo If not tho law that all
work for tho government shall bo open
to compotltlvo bids a fair field with
no favor In which tho best man wins.
If tho Republican Territorial ndmlnl-s-tration
of Hawaii Is to bo a repetition
of an old "Wo rulo" policy, without re
gard for tho party, defeat at tho polls
will be assurance mado doubly sure.
Editor Evening Bulletin: In your
Saiu-day' slBSite, Mr. Alex. Young gives
forth his opinion about a petition
which has been lodged with tho Execu
tive Council by tho residents In tho
vicinity of South and Queen streets,
protesting against tho proposed erec
tion of a garbage crematory on tho site
of the old Kerosene Warehouse lot on
South street. Mr. Young evidently has
a poor opinion about thoso who signed
tho petition, as ho lumps them together
In a rather contemptous manner as
"Magoon's people," whatever that
p.irase may mean. Tho signers consist
of people living In their own homes, In
the locality referred to, the whole year
round peoplo who ennnot afford, per
haps, to take a trip abroad whenever It
suit them, but who nevertheless have
Invested their hard-won savings In
their small holdings and who, I may
safely say, pay moro taxes on property
to the valuo of their properties, man
do tho wealthy sugar planters of tho
country. After having to' withdraw
his ukase abolishing all hack stands
In Honolulu from off tho fnce of tho
earth, 1 can perfectly understand that
Mr. Young has no use for "kickers"
as ho elegantly expresses It, no matter
what tho "kick" may happen to bo
about so long as it happens to conflict
with his own views. Nevertheless, the
sinners to tho petition believe they
havo good ground for thclrobjectlons to t
the nrouosed site.
Mr. Young does not state that a gar
bage Incinerator Is a very desirable
thing to live close to, but ho says that
It must bo erected "near somebody."
Granted that It must, tho question re
mains HOW NEAR. Tho petitioners
nro fully aware of tho need of n crema
tory, bit they draw tho attention of the
Executive Council to two Bites else
where available that would not bo very
near dwellings and where tho smoko
would bo makal of all dwellings. The
sites mentioned wero (1) on tho sea
beach, between tho new Iron works and
tho present keroscno wnrchouse.
There are ncrcs of unoccupied land
nvnllablc there. (2) at Iwllcl, which
lies well away to tho leeward of tho
whole town. Iwllcl futhcr, for many
years past, has been set apart as tlyi
portion of tho town where nil kinds of
unsavory Industries havo been carried
on. Tallow trying works, slaughter
house, soap works, tannery, fertilizer
works, public wash houses, etc., may
bo mentioned. Then why not put up
tho garbage crematory In tho same
I do not wish to tako up moro of
your valuable space, but I dcslro beforo
stopping, to draw attention to another
of Mr. Young's remarks. IIo pleads
that becauso tho San Francisco and
Edinburgh garbago crematories havo
been erected In tho miuulo or tnose
cities that It follows as n matter of
course that tho slto chosen by himself
for tho erection of the Honolulu crema
tory Is a good one. Two wrongs do
not mako a rlcht. and becnuso those
two cities have Ignored tho best Inter
ests of their citizens by putting up gar
bago crematories In their midst It is
no reason for us here to follow their
bad example. San Francisco and Edin
burgh moreover are rather unfortunato
examples to quote Municipal govern
ments which allow such, plague spots
to exist in their center as Chinatown
In San Francisco nnd tho Cowgato and
tho closes of Edinburgh nro not good
patterns to follow by thoso who pro
pose to build up a new and better Ho
nolulu. "Besides dwellings havo no right to
bo on thoso low flats," says Mr. Young.
To this I would only reply that theso
dwellings aro built on about tho same
level as residences say at Walklkl, oc
cupied by tho wealthy class of people.
Many of tho houses In tho vlclnty of
Queen and South streets wero built a
dozen years ago. Permission to build
was obtained after submitting plans
,nnd paying a fco to tho Public Works
Department, and no objections to
building were registered by tho Board
of Health. Several years ago when
Queen street was macadamized, tho
grado near South street was raised by
about a foot, thereby making the ad
Joining lots below tho street level.
Much filling In has been and Is being
done, but It Is poor encouragement for
tho owners to further Improve their
lauds, If an Institution such as tho gar
bago crematory, with Its dally string
I of rubbish carts In attendance is to ho
dumped down In their midst.
