When Wm. McKlnley expresses
confidence In his reelection you nmy
know 'that he Is counting on a sure
thing. Throughout his career McKln
ley has always been conservative In his
pre-election predictions until absolute
ly sure of his ground. Urynn on the
other hand Is of the political type that
claims everything from the start and
makes the most radical assertions
when posslblltles of his election be
to extend Its tracks to this land, run
funeral trains, put water on the Uud
and sell It to the people at not more
than twenty-five cents t square foot.
Al Hhat Is needed to complete this re
markable proposition Is a guarantee
that the Transit company will erect a
marble memorial shaft as an everlast
ing monument to n beneficent Govei
nor's council that would grant such a
tcuutftcent gift to a private corpora
tion. As proof that the Transit company
does not want all the earth with a
ftneo around It, this corporation uy
Its manager suggests that It will al
low the ,'goernment" the "privilege
mark the ord privilege of the tiso
of flvo acres of this gift for a l'otter'3
field. After reading this proposition,
the taxpayer might well wonder wheth
ci the Transit company Intends to nsk
the next Legislature for a cash subsli'y
to help lay Its tracks tc this proposed
The Bulletin has been disposed to fa
vor the Rapid Transit company In Its
effort to establish a modern street rail
way system, but this last Is too much
for any falrmlnded Journal or taxpayer
to accept. Mr, Uallctityne's company
asks the Governor's council tor a land
subsidy, nothing more or less. It asks
for something the council has no right
to grant and which no I.eglslatura
ought to grant although It might pos
sess the right to sanction the transfer
It nsks for fifty acres of the people'o
property to be put in Its hands In fee
simple, and It promises to charge the
people not more than twenty-five cents
a square foot for cemetery lots. An
acre contains upwards oC 43,000 square
feet which at twenty-five cents each
nets the Transit company In the vlcli.
Ity of $10,000. Multiply this by fifty,
the number of acres tequested at "1
nominal consideration," and, after de
ducting the land necessary for streets,
etc.. It Is at once apparent that the
Rapid Transit company can figure a
very good source of profit In the ceme
tery land business.
Possibly the Transit company ought
not to be too harshly criticised. Every
corporation Is bound to get all It can.
There Is one thing nnd only one for
the government to do with the "propc
sitlon," chuck It In the waste basket.
The council will gain no favor with the
people by even considering such a
Every person who knows anything
of affairs in the national capltol is well
aware that D. W. Stevens of the Ja
panese Legation at Washington Is not
visiting Honolulu' for personal nnni"
ment. Mr. Stevens has for many yeais
been In the employ of the Japanese
Government nnd Is recognized In Wash
ington as one of the ablest men In the
diplomatic circle. The people of Hr
walt will do well to make up their
minds that so far as Japan Is concern
ed the fire claims will be paid, If not
by the local government then by virtue
of a demand on Federal authority.

Chairman Hanna's preparations for
a directory of Chicago voters calls to
mind a pretty move made by Matt
Quay when ho was conducting Harri
son's fust campaign against Cleveland.
The defeat of lllalne In Cleveland'.

Reglnnlng with January 1, 1001, the
Maine prohibition law bids fair to at
tract moro widespread attention
throughout the United States than.cver
before since Its enactment. This is
saying n good deal. Next to "mission
aries" the Maine liquor law stands ns
an ever fruitful theme of discussion,
bitter condemnation and nnknt de
fence. Cumberland county, in which Is lo
cated Portland, the, largest city of the
State, has elected Rev, S. T. Pearson,
tho prohibition candidate as sheriff of
the county. The people of Cumberland
county face much tho same sort of a
stltuatlon that might becreated locally
If Governor Dole Bhould appoint Rev.
Kincald High Sheriff In place of Arthur
Drown. Sheriff-elect Pearson is not
only the candidate of radlcalprohlbl
tlonlsts, the teetotalers, but he is a
parson who hns weekly preached from
his pulpit how things oi'ght to be. He
has the opportunity to eclipse the glory
of the Rev. Sheldon of Kansas who
runs newspapers, etc., on the "What'
complished by frauds perpetrated by
the Democrats of New York. In tin)
early part of the Harrlfon campaign u
new directory firm was established In
New York city. It bad thousands of
workers and secured the most complete
directory of New York city and Its
suburbs that had ever been taken.
When the work was completed, Quay
Invited the Democratic committeemen
to the directory omce, showed htm the
mass of facts gathered, gave formal
notice to the Democrats that he was
prepared to meet any "monkey shines
of corrupt politicians and advised them
ns a friend not to repeat the hUtory
of tho lllalne campaign, The Demo
crats immediately saw tho point ani
New York for once In Its history polled
an honest vote. The directory was nev
er published, The day after election
the firm dissolved and turned Its books
over to the Republican managers who
had so successfully and quietly check
mated the Democrats.

The State of Maine has enough ex
pllcit prohibitory law on Its statute
books to keep every liquor seller in
Jail for his natural life. The responsi
bility for the enforcement of these
laws falls principally upon the county
sheriffs. Acting under the Infiuenco of
varying storms of reform that sweep
over every comunlty with Irregular
regularity, these sheriffs occasionally
tie up the liquor traffic to such an ex
tent that "getting a drink" Is as diffi
cult a task as that Imposed upon the
camel passing tho eye of a needlo.
These "dry times," however, havo nev
er been kept up throughout the entire
term of a single county sheriff.
The practical enforcement of the law
amounts to this a series of raids on
siloans JiiBt before the session of the
Superior Court; arrest and arraignment
of the saloon keeper; Imposing n flno
that goes to the county treasury; sa
loon keeper released, whereupon ho
lays In n new stock of goods and does
business till the next term, when he
goes through the courts again with the
