FRIDAY MAY 25, 1000.
The announcement comes from Dew

the Presidency Impossible to fulllll.
The people are disposed to look upon
this statement with a degreb of dis
trust until the rest of the family s
It has remained to tlio prize lighters
to disprove tlio old cry, "to the Ictors
belong tho spoils." Corbott emerges
from his hcrmltago of pugilistic Inac
tivity, with a knock-out that creates
htm the hero of tlio hour. Tho gentle
men who thought they were breaking a
political slate ougjit to Import James J.
as a mascot.
With men like Col. llalnl of Wy
oming and Daniel A. Hay of Illinois
ndded to tho list of Hawaii's active
Republicans, the corps of Party work
ers will be forcefully strengthened.
Hay Is well known hero and tho fact
that tho Wyoming colony speaks high

of good citizenship as well as good
Honolulu's burning policy is certain
ly upheld by tho experience Sydney is
having with the plague epidemic. At
tho first outbreak, Sydney ofllclals were
disposed to go slow with tho work of
destruction, until each week added an
increased number to tho list of victims
and tho epidemic spread to outlying
cities and towns. Tho officials have
now begun destroying infected houses
and wharves, which amounts to prac
tically tho samo thing as Honolulu's
fire brand work. Tho latter In fact ap
pears aa moro completo as well as
POR THE MUNICIPALITY.
While tho Territory is giving Itself
over to party organization, celebra
tions and theatricals tho people should
not lose sight of tho fact that they havo
a campaign for tho organization of a
municipality to consider. Nor should
time be wasted in theoretical consider
ation when the situation calls for ac
tion. At tho present rate of progress, Ho
nolulu will And itself postponing ac
tion from month to month until the
regular session of tho Legislature in
February. Tho Legislature will bo ex
pected to act with tho chances oxcollont
that tho mombois will havo no expres
sion of tho people on which to base
their action. Tho practical result will
bo tho storming of the Legislature by
supporters of various theories, thu
enactment of a charter acceptable to
no onu or tho postponement of tho
wholo matter till another session.
Owners of property in this city can
not afford to run tho risk of legislative
failure, to grant a charter through
present Indifference or n waiting policy
prompted by tho lack of time business
men havo to dovoto to general public
Interests. Mercantile Interests as well
ns civic pride for Honolulu as ono of
tho progressive cities of the United
Statccs demand that no tlmo shall bo
lost In securing nn expression of pub
lic sentiment to bo followed by careful
dlBcusBlon of tho form of charter that
shall bo requested of tho Legislature.
Tho Initiative should bo taken by tho
pcoplo and that without unnecessary
delay. If tho best Interests of tho city
nro given proper placo in tho mldbt of
tho present rush of business llfo, an
election of frcoholdcis to draft Hono
lulu's city charter will bo ono of tho
first non-partisan electoral events in
tho history of the Territory. The pco
plo having nothing to gain by delay
but everything to lose.
With tho party organizations ncaring
completion, tho tlmo is approaching
for tho pcopio to turn their attention
to tho topics which fall within tho
provlnco of tho Municipal League. As
beneficiaries of American expansion
and progress, wo must keep up the
paco, and never allow tho development
of tho city of Honolulu to listlessly
drift in tropical civic doldrums.
Tho eccentricity of genius Is one
thing; tho foolishness of mediocrity
qulto another. It is ono thing to havo

other to havo it all swamp. Hudor

TUB FUTURE OF HAWAII.
IN. Y. Evening Post.
It seems Impossible, to predict what
tho future of Hawaii will bo under its
now form of government, for tho rea
sn which wo havo assigned, that It is
the mebodlmcnt of Amcrlcnh political
theories. Tho suffrage Is restricted to
citizens who can rend, wrlto and speak
English or Hawaiian, which seems to
leavo tho control of tho govornment in
tho hands of tno natives. But tho Por
tuguese and Japancso nro very numer
ous, nnd if thoy chooso to qualify, they
aro numerically nblo to tako control.
Tho American element will bo ap
parently In tho situation of tho white
pcoplo of tho South after tho Civil
War; but It Is Improbahlo that Con
gress will tolerato tho expedients by
which tho Southern whites havo estab
lished their supremacy. Commercially,
tho future of Hawaii depends on tho
sugnr Industry, and no ono can tell
whether that Industry can bo carried
on without contract labor. Tho history
of Jamaica Is full of warning. It may
bo repeated In Hawaii; hut tho admin
istration of tho government by Con
gress Is less satisfactory than it was
when they hnd It In their own hands.
