Oppontnts of prompt municipal or

municipal government. It would be po-
slide for the cltv council to settle the
street numbering busings within a
week of Its being brought up for dis
cussion. Humors of murder let loose In the
Chinese capital Mils the barbaric I
Idood of even civilized nations. If this
story proves not to be n canard, cer
tain It Is that China will pav the penal

A special session without n special
election will solve the legislative
problem without arousing serious op
position from the other islands or giv

interests are being slighted.

To think that Cell. Otis should have

In the Jollification. The autl-lmpeilal
ami Democratic pi ess have evlelentl.v
made h serious error In balancing up
the account of Gen. Otis' stundliii;
with the. people.
The wise men who oppose the num

doubtless past masters In the ait of
always seeking something foi nothing.

Members of the rtepublliali Ten I
torlal committee were placed In olllio
to discuss and decide upon such n
course of action as shall make for tho
best Interests of the party ns n whole.
If the secretary of the committee Is tn

the party, the name of Charles
Wilcox Is earnestly recommended
Mr. Wilcox has proven himself
first class worker, he has a wide
aiciualntanie and high standing

ILL TIMED OPPOSITION.
Opposition to municipal organization
throughout the Territory does nut
come as a surprise. This opposition
vvus to a certain extent apparent In tho
discussion of the Hawaiian bill be
fore Congressional committees and was
so far successful that the original
aWndmciit, making municipal organ
ization mandatory, wns modified leav
Ing the m.itttr optional.
In some quarters this opposition Is
promptid by the personal eleslie to
keep up the old custom of holding tho
iidmiiilstiation of affairs tluoughout
while otheis tuko the slow' going, In
different view tliut the Islands have
;" undcrithe sistem ofiicn-
HEM i the Tenltory in the hnnds of
trnlltatlon for nil these years nml they
see no l.mnullfilc necessity for n
change, even ns nn American Territory.
If Honolulu nml the Hawaiian Terri
tory In to forever roll In the ilolelrum"
of nuptial plot rumination a.i ' In'.i.Ter
eiire, then there Is Indeed no Ininied'
ate necessity for nitinlilpit organlza
tlon In Honolulu. Hllo or any other
place In the Islands. On the other
hand. If the ,e'itl7cns of the Tetrltorj'
propose to fulfill the dut of their high
(itllltiK as American cltlrelia, lend their
efforts to am h measures as bIi.iII mak1!
for the continued progress of the Inl
ands and the development of the Tei-
rltory on the limnd American lines of
modern advancement, and therehj give
to the citizens of ecry Island, town
and hnmkt the full degree of home rule
to which they are entitled. If It Is the
honest desire to mine forward, not
backward, the people will not hesitate
to grapple manfully with the problems
of the hour as presented by the orgnnl
7.itlon of municipalities.
A slight Increase In taxation may In
deed result from the orgnnWutloii of I
town, county nml city corporations, but
experience has proved that the house -holder.
or merchant cannot Invest his
monev to better ndvuntnge.
As the Territorial law gives Hawaii
a guv eminent practically Independent
so municipal government will give
(IH. (tJ nti t0WI1 the full freedom of
Independent progressive action tut
will meet the clemn'nds of local Inter
ests. The time has passed when the
people lire satisfied with or tnelf In
tel csts best served by bolus tied down
to the sn so of the cnpltol building of
Honolulu. They will not nllow the
wheels of American progress to be
clogged by Indifference or the possible
personal or local ndvuntiige gained by

' while of the sales liy the private com

below 10.5 candle power. A ilenier II
lustiatlon of the superfluity of public
munuKcmint under what the crltlis
consider suhstantlull) similar condi

was considerably less than the average
salts of 200,000,000 feet In the public

Why sigh for hlni whose earthly daya
Are spent In ordinary ways,
Who merely plods along,
And, after all Is done, lies clown
Without high honors or renown,
Unglorifled in song?
No fools will dig up stoin's then

Or wrangle o'er his dust,
Or cull hi 111 gieut or write him down
