Now the people want to know wheth
er the Jury reached Its decision by
means of a cold bottle and high low
Jack and the game.
It has remained for the Republican
to epitomize public opinion on tho Jury
bill for "cigars and playing cards" as
"Cards shrdlu cmfwpapjtja."
In other words the Items of the bill aro
so funny as to be unspeakable.
The only real difficulty between
Chairman Carter and T. McCan's
Stewart nppcars to lime been caused
by .Stewart talking too much. Mr.
Stewart's flow of quotations ranging
from the llrltlsh Parliament to the
Fifth Ward of Long Island City Is
enough to dazzle Speaker Heed him-
When It cornea to strlfo the Fifth
can give the Fourth district cards
nnd sapdes. Party history thus
far, however, has shown that
the sharper the contest the larger the
moro active the enlistment of voters for
tho party. If this holds good up to
election day tho Fourth will have U
look well to Its laurels.
After threo months of American ad
ministration, a calm review of tho sit
uation shows that ln the courts
the anticipated radical changes
of management have occurred. Judgo
Estce Is upholding with quiet force his
first American text, "American law Is
common Justice," and the Territorial
courts nre promptly following tho
Tho resolution of the Fifth District
opposing Illlo us the convention cltv
for tho Territorial gathering cannot
have much force since It offers no rea
sons good, had or Indifferent to suppoit
tho contention. Honolulu residents na
turally prefer the convention In this
city as a matter of personal conveni
ence, and the action of the Fifth has
tho nppenranco of making personal con
venience paramount to the advance
ment of the party ln tho outside dis
tricts. Aside from n few compli
mentary ballots It Is certain that Hon.
Samuel Parker will reccle the unani
mous support of the Republican Ter
ritorial convention for Delegato to
Congress. Mr. Parker stands In tho
enviable position of the offlco seeking
the man. His Interests on nil the isl
ands of the group free him from the
possibility of prejudice ln securing
Federal favor for the Territory, and his
intimate associations -witty national
leaders are an nssuranco that Hawnll
will get Its full share of public Im
provements from tho Congress of which
Parker will be a member.
If tho superintendent of publle In
struction Is to be tho recognized offi
cial reporter of the Governor's Council,
It would certainly be a courteous act
on the part of the Governor and hU
councillors to properly publish tho fact.
The present policy of the council seems
to be to give the general public as lit
tle knowledge of its deliberations as
possible Whether this Is the fault of
the secretary or the council, can best be
answered by the latter. In dealing
with the newspaper reporters the sec
retary of the the council can lose noth
lng by taking a lesson from Judge Es
tee and the officers of his court.
The annual boat races are about tho
only sport followed In Hawaii that can
be classed as an established Institution.
In all tho long list of amateur con
tests, the acquatlc events alone have
escaped the temporary enthusiasm that
mark a fad and It Is to be hoped that
this legacy of the lato King Kalakaun
will never bo allowed to fall by tha
wayside as tennis, baseball and kindred
recreations lime done. The only poj
alble suggestion to be made In con
nection with the annual re
gatta la to urge a greater activity
among tho Hawaiian-Americans. Ho
nolulu Is large enough and Interest In
boating sufficiently well established to
warrant three or more active clubs
with a crew for each race.
"Rules and regulations" are the shib
boleth that has thus far Invariably
called forth" whatever clashes have oc
curred ln Republican conventions.
Many belleto thai the party l litsl
rnanaurd that Is the least "Roverncd,"
and their opponents are firm In the he
lief that the action of eery commute
anil convention should he tied down to
a masi of detailed dliectlon. which
shall control tho action of Its oflirnr
and members. In these days when the
people, of Hawaii arc taking their (list
lessons In Amcrlian political work, the
necessity for pressing u'pon them a
mass of "thou shall andhovKshalt
not," In reference to Insignificant de
tails la not apparent.'
BUSINESS OF IDLENESS
The thoughtful voters will Jli
tingulsh between the transient and the
permanent differences between tho He
publican and Democratic patUcs. Jvaoh
campaign brings to the front some tem
porary questions of cxiVdlency, which
nrc Intended to blind the eyes of tho
thoughtless nnd attract the floating
"Tippecanoe and Tyler too" wjn
more votes than logical arguments.
"Fifty-four forty ,or fight" nroused the
whole country and not a few wou'.d
have preferred tho fight to the fifty
four forty. And "10 to 1" drives sound
money Democrats Into the Republican
party, and 8llvcr Republicans Into the
Democratic ranks. i
However, back of all these campaign
cries, deeper than the money question,
I more Important than the subject of lm
I perlallsm, more vital to the future wel
fare of the nation than militarism, Is
tho radical difference between the two
great historical parties on the tariff
question. It Is not a question of pro
tection nnd free trade. No party advo
cates and no government practices ab-
g0,ute frec trmI(,
Tho Democratic par
ty hns, howocr, for years ndvocatcd In
Its platforms tho well defined policy of
"a tariff for revenue only," refusing to
recognize as democratic the wisdom,
Justice or propriety of affording elUior

The avowed Republican policy, often
reiterated In national platforms and
enncted Into law, as is evidenced by
tho McKlnley nnd tho Dlngley tariff
bills, openly affirms that the Republi
cans favor a protective tariff that will

capital In manufacturing cnterprls.1!

tho effects thereof were Democrat!;.
The Dlngley bill nnd its results are Re

these two measures Bhould be care
fully weighed by every voters who do

prosperity and personal advantage.
Under the operation of the Wilson
Gorman revenue tariff, the Income of
the government was not sufficient to
pay current expenses. The tariff fo'
revenue only did not produce the reve
nue. (!oi eminent bonds were sold in
time of pence to pay tho dally obliga

President and a Republican Congress,

What have been the results? The 'na
