MONDAY , MAY 28, 1900.
As the terminus of two rntlwny sys
tems Hllo In bound to ho a metropol
itan center of tho Inlands Wifitoer
happens to Its harbor.
If thciu Is to bo no .speclul Biimlun of
tho Legislature. Honolulu cannot afford
to allow the campaign for a municipal
ity to fall by tho wayside.
Hllo baseball enthusiasts arc far and
away ahead of tho "metropolis." The
first thing Honolulu sportsmen know
tho Queen City will bo. carrying off the
championship In thcafetloual game.
Delegates from the other Islands t'
the Republican contention may put
nsldo tho old Idea thut Honolulu seeks
to hog It nil. The Republican party
stands for a fair deal a well as major
What a magnificent spectacle the Ha
waii delegates to tho National Demo
cratic convention will present, register
ing their vote for free silver Ilrynn ami
nntl-cxpanslon, freo trade with for
eign nations and unions other calnni
Vty howls with which Hawaii s Interests
.lave been threatened for years.
Not tho least of the benefits dcrled
from tho Inauguration of the American
'postal system will bo the relief fiom
the payment of fines on "short post
ngo" letters from the States. One of tli"
best sources of Incomo to tho local
office has been tho fines for which tho
Ignoranco of our good American cor
respondents nro responsible.
To gain voting sttcngth for tho
Party should determine every act of ths
Republicans about to meet In Terri
torial convention. Efforts lu tho or
ganization of American parties havo
gone far enough to prove beyond rea
sonable doubt Hint thcro will be a con
tinuation of old tlmo politics, or that
any largo number of voters will com
bine on unAmorlcan lines.
Tho Democratic ploy to tho Porto
Rlcan gallery by ndmlttlng delegates as
from a Territory Is decidedly crude.
Neither Porto RIcans nor tho American
people are blind to tho fuct that tho
Republican method of dealing with this
now possession Is far superior to Imme
diate) admission as proposed by tho
Democrats. Tho rebate of duties fur
nishes the Porto RIcans with tho funds
for public work of more Importnnco
to their present necessities than all the
sentimental rights which they might
secure through free tiade.
Plantation managers nro moving
nono too promptly In organization
with tho especial end In view of dealing
with tho labor situation under tho now
conditions that will soon bo upon tho
Islands. For years past tho labor ot
i-o Islands has been so completely un
der tho paternal control of tho govern
ment that the release Is moro than like
ly to bo attended with greater or less
friction from tho restive elements
among tho laborers.
There Is little danger ot serious diffi
culties arising that will threaten tho
main Industiy of tho country. At the
same tirao it is absolutely necessary for
tho men In chargo of tho vast sugar
estate to prepare to meet tho new con
ditions, that tho ttansltlon from con
tract to free labor may bo accomplished
without amusing tho antagonism of a
thoughtless laboring class, llccent
strikes on various plantations seem to
Indicate that tho "walking delegato" la
at work to stir up strife by means of
misrepresentations and threats. Thu
results of thebo strikes, however, go to
prove that the great mass of tho labor
ers nro satisfied with their treatment
and prefer n stcaoy incomo to becom
ing blind followers of foolish leaders.
Employeis of laoor In Hawaii must
meet organization with organization,
foolish Icadeishlp with Intelligence.
Tho result will bo at onco beneficial to
tho plantation and the laborer: Under
tho system proposed by Maul manaecrs
It will be possiblo to weed out tho dh-1
turbing elements and thereby protect
tho honest laborer securing for him a
greater freedom for personal advanco
ment. The standard or labor will oo
hlghor and as a natural result tho la
borer will receive bettor roturns.
At Nation's Capital
Washington, D. C, May 12. Ex
Queen Mlluokntanl Is preparing to
start for Hawaii on Tuesday next. The
health of tho cx-Qucen has Improved
considerably during tho past two weeks
nnd she has almost entirely recovered
from n sovcrc attack of la grippe which
has kept her Indoors much of the
spring. In spite of many reports to the
contrary tho ex-Queen will not un
dertake to recover any sum from the
United States on account of tho loss
of her possessions. As she stated to a
reprcsentatUo of the Hulletln, fehc will
live as u private citizen nnd as (jnlctly
as possiblo among her own people, and

nbout tho middle of June. Mr. Rcy says
ho has great confidence In tho com
mercial future of Hawaii and Is de
lighted with the opportunity ho has so
cured of making the Islands his futtite
home. Incidentally Mr, Ray will bo
nn Important factor In building up a
strong Hawaiian wing of tho Republi
can party. Ho is a skillful politician
nnd much of the success of tho senior '
Senator from Illinois Is duo to tho effi
cient aid which has been rendered him
in Illinois politics by Mr. Hay,
Col John C. Halrd of Wyoming, who
will bo District Attorney, will also bo
n strong member of tho Republican
parly. Col. llnlrd Is a self-made man.
Ho Btarted his ndult years as a uork
mnn lu n Pittsburg iron rolling mill

being practical nnd useful. He has tind
experience ns a newspaper writer nnd
publisher nnd studied law, while work
ing ns an editor.

bers of the bar of Wyoming.

threo teams which nro to play ball In
Hllo this year met at the office of J.
U. Smith on Monday evening last for
the purpose of forming a permanent
organization, passing upon a set of by
laws and electing officers.
The principal differenco between tho
constitution of the league this year"
and last will bo that this year tho
league, as such, will havo nothing to do
with handling money. There' will do
no treasury nnd no treasurer. Each
club will pay Its own bills and collect
Its share of gato receipts, etc. The
president nnd secretary nre empowered
to mako contracts, subject to tho rati
fication of tne league It Is understood
that tho Volcano Stables and Transpor
tation Company will glvo the teams GO
pur cent of tho gnto receipts. It was
votcu at tho meeting that 75 per cent
ot this should go to tho winning team
and 25 per cent to tho losers.
A committee, consisting of tho cap
tains of tho threo teams, was appointed
to nrrango a schedulo of fifteen games
to commenco on Juno 11th. No method
has yet been settled upon to decide

Hllo, May 25. Deputy Sheriff Over
end nrrlved in Hllo by tho Klnau, look
ing for some witnesses In tho Konn riot
cases. Mr. Ovcrend says that tho con
dition of affairs In Konn Is anything
but satisfactory. Tho Japs nre evi
dently out with chips on their shoul
ders and looking for ns much trouble
ns can bo conveniently secured, mean
while breathing threatening ami
slaughter against any of their fellow
countrymen who do not come Into lino
ana ' vote tho slato" so to speak. One
of their fellow countrymen has already
felt tho weight of their displeasure,
and now with most of his bones in a
fractured condition is keeping tho au
thorities guessing whether ho is goin.7
to live or die.
Tho Vnnltv of mnn Is nn nmnilni?
that when ho Is past arrogating to
himself tho attention which Is neces
sary to him as nls dally bread, ho la
capablo of so demeaning his manhood
as to cxclto Interest in his weakness,
rather than that ho should ccaso to bo
tho object of any Interest whatever.
