We commend this bentlmcn: to tho

Tho Bulletin bids aloha to Special
Agent Haywood representing tho sug.r
Indubtry of this Territory. He has Iw-
' portnnt duties and n splendid 11c1son.1l
opportunity to make a record. If he
considers It necessary to put his fingeis
I In the political pis he can knock' hit
, oin prospeits ami the largo Interest I e
represents Into a cocked bat Hit Jui-

on severe proving grounds.
If It bo truo that tho planters in
finding themiclves up n tiee on the ki
bor iiucstlon, It can onl result 111 1
rcllectlon on their business JudKineui
and foresight. It Is now two je.ua
and more since the Hag was raised n
Hawaii and the destruction of the co 1
trntt and coollo labor sjstem became
Inevitable. There Tins been time niM
to spare to canvass the American mm
' ket, uqt for hoboes but for American
(farmers who will not onl) do the wor!:,
but make good citizens.
The personal bitterness shown
against Judgo Humphreys by tne
would-bo ruling element of this Terri
tory Is tho best possible proof that the
Judgo In all bin so-called erratic acts
bis on no occasion overstepped well
recognized precedents of American
courts. Ills cncrolc3 cannot attach his
integrity, nor the justlro of his ruling.
The fact that ho refuses to surrender
his lndcpcndmro at the bidding of nun
who huc hitherto found willing ser
vants In oinclnl life causes a wild f
fort tcTBmothcr him with eplthe.s
which amount to nothing.
J. A. McCandless in his present and
'nrcvlniin rnrppr lins shown himself ta
&' bo n man desirous of keeping close 1 1
the people and fuldtllng their renucii
when possible. The question put by
"Taxpayer" In another column Is by no
'means an impossible one for blin to
I.. answer and ho certainly should not Ir-
wnoro it. Mr McCandless has statid

The discussion of tourist travel nt
tho last session of the Chamber !
Commerce furnishes evidence of the
perfunctory activity with which tl.e
tourist problem Is approached. The re
port of the discussion Is worthy of re
petition: Mr. llncfnrlanc moved "that It Is
tho sense of tho Chamber that sub
scriptions should bo secured from
the different members of the
Chamber tonnid the support of Mr.
ltlee's tourist agency nt I.os An
geles." Mr. Atherton had never heard of
Mr Itlco or his efforts nt directing
tourists to Hawaii. '
Mr. Cooke asked If ho was not
merely a representative! of tho
Oceanic Steamship Companj, to
which Mr. Mncfnrlano replied In
tho negatlvo but stated that Mr.
Itlco was tho company's ticket

proposal, tho meeting ndjourned.

Steamship Company or not so I10 Is a
reputable citizen and sends grist to

chances to one tho next meeting will'
find the subject again postponed.
The fact of the matter Is that there is
no get-up-nnd-gbt In tho Chfitther of
Commerce or any other local bojly that
has ever made a show of dinwtng tour
ists to Hawaii, There Is no energy In
what little 13 done. Until, there Is mote

(llbsou, the man who has been lon,i
sought for torturing nnd kilting hi
daughter, was captured cstcrday at
Irwin Hlll 'Carter rounty. nnd wis
brought to the house of Sheriff Davis
who resides about two miles outside
tho city after dark. County Judgo I..
T. Everett made an order romovlu,?
the prisoner for safe keeping to Slnytf
vllle. Deputy Sheriff William Olcger
and Jailer I. S. Hurd left the city for
Hussell. Ky.. where they will take the
train for Mnysvllle
Further along the line the train was
boarded nnd the rinch-s searched bn
no sign of the prisoner was found bv
the searchers. .At various poln.s
crowds are ollectcd waiting for t'i
news of the capture of the pilsoner bv

depots havo taken tho prisoner off th-3

Tho theater Is onto more open for
business this evening. Tho theater nf
ter having been under the "odor of

seem to have been eagerly nwaltlng tho

ought to be good houses nt tho Or

and tho newcomer "I.lttle Claire IV

pagne and Ojstcrs" has been ardently
rehearsed and Is now pronounced 1)5

ready for Inspection.
There Is a complete change of pio
gram nil down tho Hue nnd the orclus
tral selections by the new completed
oichestra under Prof. Shnrpe nro well
worth staying In between nctB to lu
ten to. It Is Indeed doubtful If It Is
pa) lug pulley on the part of Mating t
Cohen to provide such excellent eutei
talnnunt inside, taking his restaurant
receipts Into consideration.
The llRwallau election Is full of slg
nlflrnnce. Appareptlj CongiCkR, when
Instituting the territorial government,
was too liberal with tho suffrage. Th
