Commodore Weaver was unkind. A

The Advertiser Is making a studlod
effort to forget the antl-haolo accusa

Americans. This Is not an evidence of
n change of heart, hut merely n detail

One of the most Interesting features
of telephone Carrlngton's career here
was that he was piactlcally vouched foi

with natural enthusiasm tempercl
with thoughtful moderation. Expcn

hut above, all straightforward houes'y
and a spirit of Justice toward nil citi

Ilazen S. Plngree retiring Governor
of the State of Michigan In his fare
well address to the Legislature stntes
pertinent facts relative to the attitude,
of so-called "hpst citizens." Ills com
ments havo been exemplified repeatedl
In Hawaii except that these Inlands
have not possessed nnd do not now
possess n chief executive of Plngrec's
Independence, forco of character nnrt
active, postlve. practical regard for
the Interests of the people as against
the corpotatlon. Governor I'lngres
speaking from a political cxnErlenccjif,
twelve years draws this conclusion-
"That In order to secure the full
commendation of those who con
sider themselves the "better
classes' the Governor nnd other
olllclals must do nothing to antago
nize the great corporations nnd
the wealthy people. 1 am satisfied
that t could have had the praise
and support of our 'best citizens'
nnd our 'best society' and of the
press of the State generally If 1
had upheld, those who have Tor
years attempted to control legis
lation In their own Interests that
they might bo relieved from shar
ing equall.v with the poor and low
ly the burden of taxation,"
Thus Plngree. who has been one of
the most notable reform otllclsls of
the fnltcil States finds that the pres
ent dangers of our government havo
their principal tourru In the self as
sertive, much vaunted "good citizen,'
who assuming a supreme degree of
piety nnd honesty Invariably bends his
effort to sway legislation for the Bpeclnl
servlco of private ends. It Is the "good
citizen' that ever crys out against tho
dangein threatening from "the peo
ple." It Is the "good citizen" who ad
vocates restriction of the franchise. It
Is the "good tltlzen" who seeks to
establish his high character by fre
quent nxsertlon of his superiority.
With ever Increasing regularity It Is
becoming apparent that the usserte.l
"goodness" of the citizen ndvnnccs Willi
his Incienslug wealth. Wealth shows
Itself In prlmnrles nnd. with Htudh'd
Indifference of the popular Interests or
mandates, seeks to Influence legisla
tion. "Good" citizenship and wealthy
manipulators have become so far syn
onymous, that the self proclaimed
"good" and "best" citizen has become
a factor In political llfo from whose
activity the people, have the most to
fear. Plngree has found It, Roosevelt
realized It when ho sought to secure,
laws passed placing a fair share of
Hit taxation huidens on corporate
wealth. The same factor Is constant
ly In evidence In the political life ol
Hawaii. The Incoming Legislature In
mapping out the new scheme of taxa
tion will feel Its power with renewed

before the present Legislature, com

ulist Senators who yesterday proclaim
