AN8WI1R THE QUESTIONS.
The suggestion of T. Haln Walker
of tho Chamber of Commerce that one
of the local newspapers establish a de
partment for answering the numerous
questions propounded to the business
community by citizens of the Malntan I
falls In line with a new departure to
lie made by this paper at the openli.g
of the new )ear.
lleglnnlng with Tuesday, Jan. 15, tho
Eenlng Hulletln will Inaugurate t!i?
publication of a weekly edition whlr!i
will contain n complete resume of tho
news as published In the dally edition.
This will be offered to subscribers tit
the very reasonable figure of $1 a jcir.
thereby placing at tho disposal of tho
people of the Territory as well as tho
Mainland the news of business, poll
Ileal, social and governmental circles .u
u figure within tho means of tho day
laborer or capitalist.
To carry out the excellent Idea pro
posed by Mr. Walker, the Hulletln will
undcrtako to answer In completo do
tall questions contained In any and all
letters forwarded to this olllcc by mem
bers of tho Chamber of Commerce oi'
uther business men. These answers wltl
bo published under special depaitmcut
headings and a copy of the paper foi
warded to such address as desired.
The great difficulty experienced by
the business men Is that they hae not
the time to devote, to the mass of In
onirics coming to them by each mall.
Ily forwarding these letters to the
Hulletln an answer to nil the queries
mill bo assured and the business man
relieved of the responsibility which he
now ofttlmes has to shoulder, of being
Indifferent to the requests of outsldcis
and their desire for n knowlcdgo of
conditions In Hawaii.
THE INDEPENDENT COMBINE.
The amalgamation of the two nntlte
llawalan societies under the organiza
tion of the Independent or Homo Rule
party Is one iOf the most Important
political steps that has been taken
within the history of the native Hawa
iian race. It Is a final step in wiping
out tho old and accepting the new. It
wilt serve to establish the high stand
ing of Hawaiian-Americans according
as party counsels are ruled by honest
conservative thought; it will secure
their discredit and destruction. It
wnyed by the Intoxiiatlon of powur
the party launches forth on a policy of
discrimination having Its source In ra
cial or narrow minded prejudice.
Present Indications are that the lat
ter courBe need not bo fenred. Honest'y
considered the Independent paity may
be placed as a "transition period or
ganization" of men Just cnteilng upon
the duties, privileges and responsibili
ties of American citizenship. The tints
Is not far distant when these men mint
come to a realization that their poli
tical thought and effort will be produc
tive of better results when exercised
within the lines of established and gen
erally accepted American parties. Under
their present organization, however,
the Independents have, full cope to
determine for themslves, and the In
terested spectators among fellow Am
ericans of the Mainland, their ability to
act with that conservative wisdom
which becomes the loyal American.
To all Intents and purposes the In
dependent or Home Rule party Is In ab
solute control of the Territory In Its
legislative and executive branches. Con
trolling the Legislature it possesses the
power to force tho Executive. This
control Is protected by all the safo
guards that surround the American
citizen. Revolution by armed forco
cannot upset, not even threaten. Tim
Hawaiian legislator has a greatet free
dom of action than he has over before
known The only danger that threatens
him today Is that which threatens at
one time or another every legislative,
body the corruption of tho briber. If
the legislative majority of Hawaii falls
a prey to this force, freely talked of al
tho close of the election, his position
In the American body politic will bo at
tho bottom of the heap and ho will
never rise. In admonishing his fol
lowers to "stand firm" President Ka
lauokalanl may have had In mind tho
threats and promise to which tho legls-
lator Is always subject 'and before
which the best of men hao fallen. Am.
ertcans may differ on polltlcalUheorlts
but personal Integrity, unfailing at
tention to duty Is a constant quantity

common business principle should de
mand tho employment of men who will
not resort to the water tap for financial
gain for themselves or the ranch. With
the men said to be In this town seeking
work there ought to be sufficient Itv
tegrlty In the lot to furnish an honest
milkman for every delivery wagon.
There Is absolutely no excuse for the
sale of adulterated milk. Aside from
being an Imposition on the poor It has
Its almost criminal phases that cannot
bo viewed with Indifference by any
father or mother. Milk dealers can
show their desire to deal fairly with
the public by waiving dll posslldo
technicalities of the law and request
ing that the milk Inspector dump In
the streets any milk below test found
In nny of tho milk dellxcry wagons.
Will the milk dealer do It?
Who Is responsible for the condition
of the nltpid Transit "rails" that dec.).--ate
King stre-t between Tort and Ala
kea? If It is the Rapid Transit Com
pany the Superintendent of Public
Works ought to take positive measures
to place them in decent condition. If
It Is the Snpt. of Public Works he
ought to be forced to drive Ills car
riage or rldeJi bicycle over this strip
of street a hundred times each day
till the neccstary repairs are made.
These "rails" ore merely pieces of
railroad Iron, that now In some por
tions project above the road level fully
an Inch. How many wrenched car
riage wheels can be charged up to
them now Is unknown. If there wcu
any sensible reason why these tracks
should continue nn obstruction, apolo
gles might be accepted for failure to
keep the street In shape for the past
month or more.
To be effective, missionary activity
does not carry a business side line, not

Tacoma Evening News.
There are likely to bo some excltln
times when the Territorial Leglslatuia
of Hawaii meets. Tho law under which
the Territorial government Is organ
ized provides that all tho proceedings
of the Legislature shall be conducted
In tho English language. Now. It so
happens that a largo number of tho
members of both houses can neither
speak nor understand a word of En
glish. There Is no provision that sena
tors and membere of the lower house,
may have Interpreters to keep them
posted as to what Is being said 'and
done. Of course they can make no
speeches on tho floor, and It Is hard
to figure out how they are even golfs
to vote, as they are not even able to
say yes and no. Tho native Kanaka
Is. however, superior morally to tho
men who have ruled over nnd robbed
him for years. Whether he-can talk
English or not no member of the Legis
lature Is likely to pass any law that
will perpetuate tho power ot,poveruor

Mr. Noar Is quite a large property
owner In Honolulu and consquently
contributes his quotn to keep tho
wheels of the government properly

back to the Duffy regime nt which time
he took quite n lively interest In having
that gentleman deposed as sanitary In

the Duffy spirit still prevails and those

After listening to tho evidence In the
case and the Interpretation of tho law

the Judge fined Mr. Noar $25, remark

LEPROSY IN TUB PACIFIC.
Leprosy was Introduced Into Now
Caledonia by Chinese. In 186S, and liy
1888 tbere were no fewer than 4,000
known lepers there. It was Introduced
Into Isle of I'lncs In 1878 nnd schi-i
spread. In the Loyalty Islands, the
first ease was seen In 1SS2; In the Ma
of Ware alone there wero already 79
lepers In 1888. lt Is thus extending all
over the Pacific. During the last cam
paign of annexation, by the IlrltUh, uf
a quantity of South Sea islands, cas.
of leprosy were found In the most un
expected places. Thus In the small
Island of I'lnehyn. a low coral atol
frequented only by pearl fishermen,
one small Islet on the reef, two or thren
miles away from the principal vltlaRJ.
has been set apart for tho leper as
soon ns tho natives found out the dis
ease, to be contagious and their foo.l
Is Rent out to them dally nnd left at tho
end of a small Jetty for them to ukt
nwny. so that' there Is no Intercour o
between tho sick and the rest of tlin
population, a natural policy of segre
gation. From the researches making
It results that the disease, was first
brought there by n Samoan man nanuM
Tnpcna. eighteen years ago; another
man. Urungo. also brought It from
Honolulu. Alrendy twenty lepers h.iwr
died on the Mel. which Is now Inhabit
ed by some twenty moro inall sttm'es
nnd varieties of the disease, with n
few more. who. evidently untainted yet
had been exiled by mistake through the
Ignorance of their tribesmen. One on.
woman described her symptoms as fre
quent sweating and a kind of ImrnliiK
Rensatlon as If the skin were prlckud
with n thousand needles; two. brother
and sister, had tho tubercular form In
Its most hideous development; and :i
poor lad had tho slow nerve leprosy,
with hands and feet painfully distorted,
wasted arms and legs, hooked, talon
llko nails, frtclnl atrophies and tho
fixed, staring eyes that would not i lose.
All this Inferno to be traced back to
Chinese rottenness; as it the 'case In
the Hawaiian Islands.
