American progress nlwan brings tip
new features In politics. Not the least
of these Is the Heathen patty which Dr.
lllshop has discovered In Hawaii.
A Washington despatch to the Call
states that the Porto Illcan laborers
on their way to Hawaii will be detain
ed In New Orleans by the Treasury
offlol.il This Indicates that our first
bath of Porto lllcfln laborers will hnvr
to be maintained In New Orleans for
a considerable period until the nation
al go eminent ls,L-OTcrn whether the
constitution follows the Hag.
Uy reason of the big Itcpubllcan nn
jorltlcs railed up -by the Territories o?
New Mexico and Oklahoma It Is null
clpated that they will be ndmlttcd to
Statehood by the next Congress. Now
here's a splendid opportunity for Ha
waii's delegate to demonstrate the in
fluence of an Independent party major
ity on the prospects for early Statu
hood. The franchise tax Is n source of reve
nue which has thus far failed to appe.il
to legislators of Hawaii. The fact that
It is a form of taxation found In "cor
rupt" cities of the United States may
be one of the arguments used agnlntl
It, but this will fall before n Legisla
ture or city council that seeks to
honestly distribute the burden of tax
ation. Governor Ilrady of the Alaska Terri
tory although frozen up half the yea.
and freo from any particular favors
from the L'nlted States Congress found
sufficient cause for gratitude to Issuo
a Thanksgiving proclamation. Hawaii
alone of the States and Territories
seems to hold the recotd of having offi
cials who fall to appreciate the neces
sity of following the Piesldent's good
Tho Advertiser's suggestion that tha
Washington despatch relating to tho
local administration had n local souroo
Is i rally amusing. The despatch pub
lished by this paper was n Washtngtoi
special to the San Francisco Ilullctlu.
This paper has yet to disgrace Its col
umns after the manner of the Adver
tiser when that paper faked an Ite'n
from the New York .Mall nnd Exprei-.s
In a vain attempt to cast discredit tipo.i
National Committeeman Scwall.
If It be true that the Collector of Cus
toms has asked any of his forco to spy
on other members of the forco oiitHldc
ol!lce hours, the least that can be said
Is that the Collector ought to bo In bel
ter business. The number of drinks re
quired to Incapacitate an employe for
work is largely a matter of opinion pro
Ided his regular official duties aio
properly perfoimed. Tho Stackable
Strathmeyer controer8ey,-lf It may b
dignified as such, looks very much like,

Comments on the Hawaiian elcctioni
made In tho papers of the Mainland
show couclusUely that Hawaii has linen
serlouslv misrepresented In the d-h-patches
Btatlug that a genet nl mov. -
ment Is on looking to tin testrletlon f
the otlng privilege. The deslro for
sinh restriction may exist In tho mln is
of U small minority but the Initiative
has yet to bo taken. It Is not at" all
probable that it eer will be taken,
slneo tho measure would meet with
small support hero and practically nor.o
In tho ncpuhllcan Congress. It Is cer
tain that the defeated as well as tbg
successful parties In Hawaii havo too
much senso to nttempt to foist such n
proposition upon the people either
through tho Legislature or the United
States Congress.. If any one wants to
take up tho fight, tho people will bo In
terested In tho exhibition they present
of being knocked down.
President McKlnley's review of eloo
tlon results shows that his head has In
no wlso been turned by tho splendid en
doisemeut ghen his administration by
tho people. Attacked at eiery possible
vulnernblo point, tho administration
has come out of the fight with such
a posltlvo verdict thatthero can bo no
posslblu doubt cast upon the popular
will. Tho only exception U
lliyan and his coterie of followers who
like sumo of our local citizens bob's
to the opinion that majorities are by no
means light, nnd government should
be placed In tho hands of his own "su
perior" minority. MeKlnley, truo Am
erican that he Is, accepts tho result not
as n personal glorification. It is rath
er an expression of the steadfast pur
pose of loyal citizens' to' maintain th-)
Integrity of their nation at home and
abroad, Whatever aggrandizement
thero may bo in this Is shared equally
with tho President by the humblest
citizen who reups tho rownrd through
the maintenance of national prosperity.

trained In the old Purltanluit school.
No luita chh t'e hu thing but heathen
ish. ti more than an Idol Is proper
decoration for it churrh. Acor-pjln,;
this doctrine to be correct, to what
depths of heathen debauchery nnd Idol,
ntry nre the people of Hawaii trending
IrrespcctUe of racial antecedent.
Among tho traveler from the "best'
centeis of civilization nnd letlglous ad
vancement, how many there are of
high social station who contemplate
this heathen hulahiila as coming with
in the scope of legitimate entertain
ment. This they do without npparnt
tw inges of conscience or expressed fe tr
of future damnation.
Even In our schools In the kindergar
ten; we find the children making mer
ry, singing songs set to hulahiila must;.
This In a wa gives a cons(n:r remind
er that the ancient institution of
heathenism Is not eschewed as I
should be according to the strict In
terpretation of modern moral obliga
tions as Indicated by the Friend's es
timate of the dance. As n matter of
fart the hula Is regarded today In union
the same light ns any other dance. It
Is v hat tho people make It. Like the
waltz, It can become an exhibition of
grosser lasclvlousncss In a Uowcry den
or n tar flat dance hall.
The llullctln Is not disposed to at
tempt to upset the Friend's estimate of
the Wilcox hula. It would be like bin
ting stoncwnlls of religious prejudiie.
That this particular hula was distlncly
lascivious Is a fact that has remained
for the Prlend alone to discover, If It
was proof of a heathen political party
existing in Hawaii, then the heathen of
Hawaii Include a large number of citi
zens not of Hawaiian parentage wh
are crcdlud with good standing lutli')
