Men who cannot filvo the time re
quired by the charter commission am
a much of a drag on progress as open
opponents. Good work mennB con
slant application and readiness to tako

A freo Sunday concert Is Illegal but
can bo allowed. Tho name concert
given with an admission fee la Illegal,
and cannot bo allow ed. This Is about
tho only conclusion that can be drawn
from tho Attorney General's Orpheur.i
Major Huhlcn's attitude favoring the
despatch of Seattle transports by way
of Honolulu makes him eligible for
Another remembrance fiom our busi
ness community. This Is the best re
minder Honolulu could have that thU
popular officer has not forgotten us.
If any of our good citizens arc ae
rlously contemplating a let-up on Chi
nese restriction by Congress to help out
the local labor market, they aro wast
ing good brain fibre and time, that
might well bo devoted to more possi
ble purposes. In carrying out such i
plan Hawaii could not successfully
counteract tho Knights of Labor lob
by alone, and this Is but one of the nu
merous potent powers that would sure
ly bo brought against tho suggett'on
of such a schemo.
The details of procedure In Btreet
extension and condemnation of private
land therefor Is so plain that no ofil
clal nor private citizen need err in
carrying on this Important work. If
the citizen Is so short sighted as to
demand a high price for his land Just
because "the government" Is a factor In
the reimbursement, tho loss In tho long
run falls on the citizen. Honolulu citi
zens are well aware of the necessity of
street extension In all directions bu:
ylhey would enthuso more over ner
work of this character if the main ave
nues of the town were less Uko country
Granting that the extension of postal
and telegraphic facilities Ib the best In
dicator of national progress, Japan Is
to make another extensive advanco
step tho coming year. Minister HoshI
TOru announces that his department
of communications Is to expend two
million yen for tho development of
means of communication. This Includes
tho establishment of over a hundred
third class postofflces with arrange
ments to undertake telegraph business,
and many improvements in tho offices
already established. HoshI Is a for
mer Minister to Washington and for
this reason has been dubbed by his op
ponents as a Tnmmany man.
When a street Is widened, why not
widen It? This query goes up from
the people In contemplating tho dec
ision of the Governor's council regard
l Ing the widening of Hotel street. Tho
new street lino cuts through tho po.'
tlco of tho llbraiy building hence tho
I street widening process will stop short
I At the line of this portico. This means
J .practically as much expense for Incom
plete work as would bo required to
rf widen to tho new lino. This Is ono of
,tho principal avenues of the city nnj
.the time will not bo far distant wild)
Increased traffic will demand wldeu-
ling to tho full extent of taking off the
P'l library portico. Do the Job In a busi-

Tho "Walt a while" argument In tho
"municipal campaign Is the easiest way
of passing over a serious problem that
demands a new era In tho degrco of
civic pride, shown by overy citizen,
Framing or conducting a city govern
ment is not a pastlmo to furnUh

whit less difficult two years henro
'than It Is today. Tho hope that In two
years the voting population will con

To raise the standard of Christian citi

the surplu money reaped from the toll

Into channels to secure n stray conver

tho Importation of horde of Asiatics
for our prlnlcpat Industry nnd later tho
contribution of money to extend the
teachings of the church to these peopli.
Yet ccry thoughtful citizen knows
that the depressing influence of the
Asiatic coolie upon the social and
moral standards Is counteracted to only
n ery slight degree by this after
thought as it were of the church.
How much better would It be If th(
preachers, the teachers and chureh
members would grjpple with commer

business or commercial activity by the

Tho remark Is often made by theorlzcrs
nnd student that newspapers Inspired
by tho spirit of commercialism furnlsn
the people with what they want and
fall short of the high province as a
public educator. Let those without sin
cast tho first stone nnd point out what
preacher of these Islands teaches from
