when It calls for Chlnchc tiuck farm

vegetable. What tint become of the
virgin Melds ot Olaa with Its wonderful
opportunities for small American far
mers. Has the famous object of '.lis
Dole land law pioved a Heeling myth?
The Hawaii Herald says tho Ilonrl
of I'Miuatlou Is employing a teacher on
that island who refuses to admit chil
dren over fifteen ears of age to his
Hchool. This Idea of lefuslng any one
who seeks to leatn Is an entirely new
one and suggests that the superlnten

a school for teachers or get some no
The Qiilcketst method for the Rapid
Transit Company to aecme a consoli
dation Is to put Its lines in operation.
Once given a modern street railway,
the people by their pationage will soon
decide the problem for such line ns
lingers years behind the times. Tho
slow process of construction has caus
ed the public to become dubious ovr
the probability of getting an electric
road (luring the life of the present gen
eration. The Bulletin publishes In this Issue
answers to letters of Inquiry sent to
members of the Chamber of Commerce. i
Copies of the paper will be forwarded
to the addresses given. Thus Is the
business man saved considerable time
In looking up matters outside his par
ticular line anil complete Information
given fellow citizens of the Mainland
seeking facts regarding this new pos
session. All persons contemplating
coming to Hawaii to obtain a liveli
hood should always bear In mind that
this Territory contains no royal road
to wealth. Generally speaking this Is
a prosperous country but competition
In all lines of trade Is as sharp, In some
Instances sharper, than encountered
In many of the city nnd country dis
tricts of the Mnlnland. The man who
has the time and money to spend look
ing over the field and return to his ni
the heath will tlnd Hawaii n pleasant
country to look over.
The wealth of public spirit possessej
by the Adertlscr and whoever It rep
resents Is evidenced by. Its advocacy of
studied Indifference toward the Inaugu
ration of Independent municipal gov
ernment In this Territory. To what
ever degree of superiority this attitude
entitles the organ and those for whom
It speaks, It Is cntltely welcome. Any
in search of an example whero men de
ed e retrogression to progress need
go no further than this single. Instance.
Following the Una of argument offere.l.
every Republican senator or representative-elect,
every "hnolc" should re
sign, giving way to somo member ot
the Independent party. For the Adver
tiser says all good laws that aro passed,
the Independents or Homo Rulers will
tnke the credit for; all legislation nut
of tho highest degree of porfej tlon will
be saddled onto the "linole" and serve
to widen tho racial breach.
The Bulletin gives the citizens of the
community sufficient credit to guaran
tee that no considerable portion w'll
cither endorse or be misled by such
nonsensical tommyrot. The remarks
of the Advertiser voice the ever rank
ling bitterness that prevails among a
certain element because Congress put
our legislative affaire In the hands
of the people. It Is an outcropping of
tho rule or ruin Idea too well known to
rccpilro extended exposition.
If there Is any policy under the
heavens that will Insure a complete di
vision on racial lines, pitting the for
eigner against the native raco'we know
of none better than that proposed by
the Morning Organ. Having In years
gone by urged the Hawaiian to "accept
tho situation," tho present disgruntled
contingent behind the Advertiser gun
nro demonstrating with what degree of
honesty they "accept tho situation."
Yet the country has sufficient fnlrmlnd
cd men of true American spirit to war
rant the overturning of this disgruntl
ed minority faction,
Should the organization of tho muni
cipality follow the present expensive
lines of the Territory with Its heavy
proportion of taxes borne by the small
property holder while massed wealth
bears the lighter burden, theio would
Indeed bo reason to draw tho conclu
sion of our contemporary that Hawaii
and Its people Is not sufficiently ad
vanced In civilization to warrant the
establishment of town, city or county
governments. To do away with tho
present expemilvn and unjust methods
of conducting tho government nnd levy
ing taxes should ho and Is the object
of charter committees and legislators.
There Is not n Stato or Territory, town,
enmity or city of tho United States
whero tho small property holder re-
cches less return for 'his taves than
docs the taxpayer of Honolulu today. I
There Is no portion of the cotinlo I
wheie officials recelxo more and return
less for their services. , i

Tho Introduction of negroes In large
bodies Into Hawaii may be a go-id
thing for the planters, but If we are to
Judge by the reports from the Statu
they ate n class best IcU In the nntlv3
lair. Some years ago when the subjn.'i
was being agitated It was understood
that none but married couples with
fnmllles would be Imported, but It
seems that the lot for Maul Is compose 1
principally of joung single men. Noil
ly every State In the South has had Its
lynching bees In which a negro haj

currences have not had the exact effect

tho effect of driving the more danger

111111' of them have met the fate their
depraved morals and nngovcimulo

Ingi of negroes for unmentionable
crimes have become popular as fnr wei.t
as Colorado and If the exodus of ne
groes from the South to Hawaii b
comes goneial the popularity of those
bees may extend even to the Ules of the
I'aelflc. This Islnnd needs laborers In
order that the leading Industry miy
continue, but It should not be main
