The decision of the Standard Oil

HIJAMING THE CIIAIITEI!.
It Is gratifying to note the general
Interest dlsplacd In taking prompt ac
tion towards the organization of the
Honolulu municipality. The Import
ance of this work was fltst presented
liy tho Evening llullotlii some time ago
and has found u generally favorable
response uniting progresslv c nnd brn.nl
minded cltl7ens of tho Territory.
Discussion lins prorccded far enough
to show that an attempt will be made
to delay the framing of the charter un
til the Legislature meets In special or
regular session. In other words It Is
apuprently hoped to throw the full re
sponsibility of framing the Honolulu
charter upon the Leglslnturn without
any previous expression from the peo
ple. This sounds well nnd mny appeal
to citizens who have no time for tho
ciotiblder.itfon of public questions, but
ft smacfts of n tendency too well known
to this community of plnclng the Ini
tiative In tho hands of tho legislative
or executive power, and nllowlng tho
people a secondary voice. The time
has passed when tho local authorities
will be supported In becoming a law
unto themselves or nssumliig nn au
thority which has any souice other
fTlan the people.
. With the limited time given tho
' Legislature, nnd Immense nmoiint of
work that will bo fenced upon It nt the
first session, nmplo opportunity will
doubtless be given for tho presentation
r a city charter drafted In n prlvnti
afflce and fulfilling the Ideals of a few
jooit citizens. There will not bo suffi
cient tlmo for n full discussion of tho
details of the charter and their benr
rng upon the conditions Honolulu
fac In entering upon n career of
municipal Independence. The result
of such a plan will be n legislative
blockndc and no charter or an Ill-considered
law that falls to meet Honolulu
conditions and receives the hearty ap
proval of no one. Hnstc makes waste

Tllli SPECIAL O.LCTION.
If Oovernor Dole has not already de
cided to tall nn extra sesslun of the
Legislature It Is to bo hoped that he
will accept the suggestions of his conn
ell and withhold his slgnatmo from the
call. With tho regular election and
legislative session so soon to occur, an
ixtrn session nt this time may well
be considered by the taxp.iyerH ns un
unnecessary expenditure of time and
money. Although there mo seernl
public muttilB upon which legislation
Is desirable, the fait still lemalns that
legislatures nrc at best expensive lux
uries, a serious draft upon the public
purse nnd to be avoided If possible.
With a special eleetlon within thirty
days followed by the extra session ol
sixty days, the Territory would hard
ly have had time to recover, before It
is again plunged Into the regular elec
tion of November. This would give a
surfeit of politics, alwns a disturbing
factor to gcnernl business Interests,
nnd It Is decidedly doubtful whether
the benefits derived from the amount of
legislation secured would In nny de
gree offset the bill of expense that
must eventually be drawn fiom tho

Otis McAllster's latest coffee review
Steadily rising prices for spot Un-zll
coffee In the New York market have
latterly been the interesting featiuc
due to long continued small receipt nt
the principal points of exportation und
olHtltil announcement of bubonic
plague at both Hlo and Santos. Tho
scnuty receipts there nre due to the de
lay In harvesting the new crop, occa
sioned by continuous rains, which aro
also said to have caused tho loss of
fully one-tenth of the prudiitt In San
tos. Ileccnt estimates place the coming
crops nt 2,000,000 Ulo, G.MO.O'JO San
tos or say about 1,000,000 lings below
the figures current earlier In the sea
son. So fur us mllil coffees nie con
cerned here tho ctlect of this improve
ment In Urazlls has been followed
mainly by those classes which were
worth 10c or less und In these un ac

decidedly larger business. The hlgher

followed the advance) In price nor no
