Cuday Incident In the high price It Is
pajlng to bring Dc Wet home to roo:,
Having In view a local government
In which they will have something to
pay, the merchants arc getting In shape
to say It. Heretofore they hae had
practically no voice.
If wealth Is a synonym for the "boat
peoplo" and "good government." w here
do"s all the tnony come from to buy
legislative numbers, city councils anl
other commodities of corruption?
No opposition to the -Merchants' As
soclntlou Is heard from any source.

The poor old Morning Organ feeb
very nngry nicr the progiesslve depat
turc of the Bulletin In unswcrlng hc
many demands for lnfoi motion receiv

objects to the now scheme of assessing
water rates will bo found to have an
expansive lawn where water taps aie
kept open at nil hours of the day
Those drawing most heavily on the wa

pute the bill.
Tho ldi. ling advertising agency of
the t'nlted States places the Bulletin as
n lender among the advertising me
diums of the Islands. Ah a leader In
giving tho news the Bulletin has no
difficulty In maintaining this posltloi
It re-ichcu the people, nml that's what
the advertising man wants.
The confidence In and high appieeh
tlon of the splendid work being don"
by the E)e and Ear Infirmary Is best
demonstrated by the hearty response
of the community to ralso money for
tho lihtltutlon. The ball to be ghen
unde.' the pattonage of social ladles Is
certain to he a financial success.
.Ir glng from the remarks of Mr.
lln .He, the success of the Poi to Rlcan
as " .limitation laborer In Hawaii will
ilej nl very much on the common
stiibi of managers and lunas. Thi
Porto lllinn seems to havo a mind o
his own and while easily led Is hard
to dile. as compared with the slave'
like Asiatic. -
Evn with tho Bplendld facilities giv
en ti.' tho Increased wharfago built by
the Oalm railroad, Honolulu hnrbsr
bids air to be overcrowded during thn
sujini season. Hawaii's commercial de
vclupmcnt is but Just begun and a
mile! more comprehensive plan than at
present being carried out, will have to
be completed beforo our hnrbor can
deal properly with the Increased traf
fic. Tho California Legislature at Its
opening session took up about an hour
discussing tho appointment of a Jan!
tress for the ladles' waiting room at tho
capltol. Important business had to
wait till this great topic was finally
settled. This Incident Illustrates a
peculiar American characteristic on the
same order with the hurrylnn buslnni.i
man who stops on the street to witness
the outcome of a dog fight.
While, asserting the utter fallute of
negro suffrage, the Southern members
of Congress nro wild In their demands
that the representation of tho Southern
states In Congress shall not bo reilucoi
In proportion to the number of citizens
allowed to vnt. The South has tho

shuts out the ballot with the shot gnu

The rapidity with which tie Advei

clearly that our contemporary bus

The t'nlted States Senate has taken
favorable action on a resolution de
claring In favor of a law to prohibit tho
sale of opium and' Intoxicating liquors
to the aboriginal and uncivilized peo
ples of all countries. Theresolullou

no Indlcatolon of any danger that Con

Club this evening ought to be well at
tended by tax paying citizens. Ailjlur
mcut of taxes Is a problem that lliter
ests all citizens and satisfies, nom;.
With the near approach of the Legisla
ture, however, every opportunity
should he Improved for setting foith
the necessities as well as the dllllcultles
of the situation.
"Tree ns water" as nn expression
that no longer means "free gratis, to-
nothing" pnrtlculatly In the modem
American city. But Honolulu comes ic
near furnishing water free to property
holders as any of Its Bister cltlei.
Doubtless the Evening Eclib objects to
the readjustment of the water rates
because It has a dim Idea that Its morn
ing Monitor has said that all municipal
Improvements presuppose nn Increased
taxation. Tnerc Is ns much sen so In
the Echo's objection to the new wa";r
schedule as there Is to Its monltor'a
opposition to a municipality on the
grounds of Increased taxation.
The ndmonltlnn to ninl e all possible
haste mnniensurato with careful vvn.-k
cannot bo too forcibly urged upon the
chartir lomniltu-ts. It Is apparent that
the leading argument of municipal !
structlonlsts will be that sulftcUnl Unit
has not elapsed or proper study given,
to'obtalu a competent charter. This
urgument i an have forte only on condi
tion of the charter committees' fn 1

gctlc manner. There tire some loranil:

In full sympathy with the movement
and slight the work In hand only on th"
plea of time neressarj for private busi
ness. The delinquents must renlir.e
that they ore playing Into the hands
of the opponents of progress. If they
have not the time they will do better
to nult and allow those w'.o have, tal'e
up the work. There Is sullkient tlma
to frame a first class charter. If a
satlsfartoiy measure Is not obtained
tin fault will rest with those who hiv
been derelict In their duty.

North Chlnn and Vicar Apostolic of
Peking, rrrlved hero today from tho
Chinese jrapltnl after a short visit to
Rome, where he discussed wltUj, the
Popo Ilia situation In China. In an In

with Hit Pope on December 3d by a cor
respondent of the -Matin; In the coursa

Important statement of tho Vatican

also In relation t" the letter from the
Popo to Cardinal Richard, the Aroh
bjshop of Paris, dealing with the pro
posed bill. Archbishop Favler said:
"I can n(Hrm that Pope Leo XIII is
admirably disposed toward Franco nml
has not tho slightest Intention of re
sorting to the severe measures which
have been mooted, and there Is no
question of a diplomatic rupture. Ills
Holiness snld to me: 'I lovo Franco
with all my soul.' "
Mgr. Favler said that the Popo would
never withdraw his protectorate over
tho Christians In Chlnn from Franci
-nml tharnny effort of Germany to this
end would be fruitless. The Archblsh
op Is nn optimist regarding the Chl
neso situation and expresses n convlc'

will shortly bo reached. Ho proceeded
to Paris, where he will confer with M.
