The Advertler seeks ti cvndo tho
municipal Issue b vainly nttemptlng 10
draw ntlentlou to the political bicker
ings of tho past.
It Is tho piogress of tho future that
honest citizens of Honolulu look to
It la the past that tho last election verv
decidedly wiped out.
This Is by no means "Itepubllcri I
weather." It Is to Ire hoped that the I
new by the Zcalandln will servo as ex-1
(option that proves tho rule. I
"Young Crokcr at work" Is nn Item of I
sufficient Importance to demand not 11 1
llttlo apace- In New Yoilt papers. That
n scion of Boss Croker should "vor"
seems to bo regarded an a digression I
from paternal teachings.
The remarkable progress made b"
our initialized government In develop
ing tho public parks of tho city since
the last legislative session. Is nn cvu
present argument In favor of luunlelp.'l
Tho Ktncr.il revival of buslmsi goe.)
to show that It la not so much the re
sult! as it Is the election campaign that
makes business draff. This Is true bt
every strip of territory where tho Am
erican lias waves.
It Is when the elements nrt at their
worst, that the excellence of streets,
telephones nnd electrical systems Is
put to the test. Th (-conditions prevail
ing dm Ins tho present storm do not
plate any of these public utilities nbovu
pnr or even up to tho average.
The Associated Charities of Kansas
havo taken up the plan of establlshl-u
penny savings banks that might well
bo copied by the local charity associa
tion. The scheme Is carried out with
no view to interesting newsboys and
children of tho street In n bank account
of their own small earnings.
Mr. Ilnrtvvcll falling to answer the
questions propounded regarding hia
efforts In Washington, the lliilletln I
will mid another which will be moro
appropriate. Did Mr. Ilnrtwell while 1
In Washington ns "special agent" and
"unolllcl.il delegate." write n letter to
Honolulu reviewing the situation rd-.
Knroing me appointment 01 uie lerr:
Hawaii follows the career of Chines.)
Heformer Sun Yet Sun not alone be.
cause he was educated In a piomlnmit
local school ami Is of Hawaii, but also
on account of the fact that there are
many others of his race In Huvvnll who !
are ready to follow his leadership In
regenerating China. When Hawaii can
become an nctlvo factor In the reor
ganization and civilized development
of a nation like China. Us reputation as
tho hub of tho Pad lie Is well upheld.

Tho Advertiser's ponderous cllort to
discredit the action of A. V. Gear In
tho camiRiIgn Just closed haves that
organ ns usual wallowing In the mire
ot malicious mWicprtsentntlon. M.
Gear's action throughout the campaign
was that of nn honest, consistent 1U-public-tin.
Ho neither paid 1 Illinois to
circulate a petition for him nor did he
attempt to displace Henry Waterhousu
on the ticket.
For reasons which the lliilletln can
not fathom, tho nomination of Mr.
Watcrhouso on the -Republican Sena
torial ticket caused nn Immediate and
widespread uproar among tho workers
for the Republican party. Some said
It was his pi eminence at tho police sta
tion In tho '93 rebellion, others that
they "didn't llko him." Tho situation
was a distressing 0110 both to tho party
managers nnd members of the nominat
ing convention who had voted for Mr.
Waterhouso believing him to bo nB
strong If not stronger candidate, than
Dillingham owing to his Intimate as
sociations' with tho Hawaiian people.
Almost without exception tho party
managers, personal friends of Mr, Wn
tcrhouse, said that Mr. Waterhouse's
nomination was a political mistake.
As Mr. Oear, although admittedly a
strong candidate, had withdrawn when
tho original ticket was framoiLln order
to prevent n party bolt on tho part of
Thurston, there were many who believ
ed tho ticket could be saved by Mr.
Oear becoming nn Independent Repub
lican candidate. Thoso strong In this
circulated petitions to thnt effect.
Mr. dear's personal friends, however.
were divided as to tho advisability of
such a course. Somo of those most
lntlmnto witli him urged strongly
against It, Tho only proper manner tn
settle tho question was dliect reference,
to tlje party managers. This was done
and details of such reference, and the
roHiilt are fully known to tho public.
Mr, Gear was no moro nctlvo In can
vassing tor support to bis Independent
action than was Henry Watcrhouso In
seeking tho Senatorial nomination. So
far ns tho lliilletln Is nwarc, Mr. W.v
tcihouKo niado nlisnltitcly no effort to
secure the nomination,
NO BOOK CONTRACT.
Tho Board of Education may well
hesltalo before making 11 contract wlili
nny publishing houso for excluslt'e
purrhaso of the hooks used In tho pub
lic schools of tho Territory. Experi
ence has not been such ns to justify the-
renevvnl of the. iile miitiart or match',;
a new 0110 that will prevent tho pur
chase of school books In tho open mar
ket. The present contract with, the Amer
ican Dook Company according to tha
opinion of many te.iclie'is best able to
Judge has not been a success. Occa
sions have nrltcn when educators have
considered that tho progress of the
siholnis would bett Xm served by tho
uso of school book editions other than
thoe lsued by this company. Thoso
books It hns been practically Impossible
to obtain owing to the terms of tin
contrai t binding the Hoard to purchase
from a single source of supply.
To bind tho wliolo educational sys
tem to ,1 private corporation for a tcr.n
1 nf years Is on the face of It n measure
that (loon not serve tho best public In- j
Wrests. In every branch of study the,
teachers should seek to secure the
school publications best suited to the
loal ibmnnd. This has nt)t been noi-1
alblo under such a eontiuct and cannot
'' llsll'Ic until the book publlshlii
mllleiilum Is reached.
Aside from this feature, the changing
conditions foreshadowed in the decen
tralization or tnc school system as wen
as other details of government ought ,
to dolor the present educational board
fiom making a contract or contiaits
which by any prosslblllly could em
harass their successors In local ndnilnls
tratlon over tho schools of this or an '
other Island. Bartering In 11 pulil' -commodity
Is a phase of local ndmlnU
tratlon that Is certain to pais out of
existence as tho details of former pa
ternal government are iclig.itid to the
ROOFS BLOWN OFF. ,
News comes from the other side n'
the island, by the J. A. Cummlugs, that
considerable damage was done by ym
tei day's stoim. Tho wind blew a gala
nnd thn rain was very heavy .
A number of loofs vveie blown off at
Knneohe and several lice fields vvcro
washed out to sea. The flumo supply
ing water to run the vvatcrvvheel of Ah
I.o's rice mill was blown down but no
other damage was done to the mill. The
old llsli pond nl Knneohe wits washed
nv.-y nnd the fish swept out to sea en
tailing 11 very considerable loss to Sh3
owners. No lives vveiolost.
Among the advantages of tho storm
Is the fact that W.ilm.iualo planta Ion
that has been suffering for lack of vvu
tui now bus a plentiful supply.
