The rapidity with which tho Adver
tiser proes that Its circulation Is moie
than double that of the llulletln re
mind" ono of the Ilaplil Transit profi
riss. Why don"t you provo It?
The Hawaii Herald says that tho
number of runaway teams Is alarming.
Honolulu needs a new adjective to
propurly express the Increase of such
Incidents. Tho day that passes vvl'h
out more than one runaway or street
accident Is fast becoming tho excep
tion!. England's ruler Is fast approaching
the end of her reign and the whole
civilized woild awaits with sad sym
pathy the leporls from her bedsl c
hoping that she may be spared while
fearing the wotst. "I'ls not alone that
u ruler Is djlng that centvis the world
wide Interest about her. tjtieen Victor
la bus ever rcpn'sentPil the highest
typo of wumanhod and ns such has had
a beneficent lull.it ncc that has made It
self felt In the world of homes. Her
death will strike deeper as her power
for good has been broader than any
sovereign history has known.
METHOD- OF CI1IBF JU8TICH.
Tho Chief Justice lias apparently dic
tated a further excuse for tho cr
peculiar methods followed by "he Su
preme Court In awarding contracts.
Again is It apparent that tlure Is a
marked effort to tvade Hie fact that
work on the contract had already beei
performed before lenders .vre Hilled
for. The people would pally bo pl-as-I'd
tt rend u statement fiom the Chief
Justice giving his honest opinion of
this manner of conducting public busi
ness; whether if such nn Incident
should occur In any other department
than his own. or say In some depart
ment of an American municipality, ho
would consider such methods as ex
emplifying or conducive to "good gov
ernment." Hut to analyze tho npparent statement
of tlie Chief Justice made by proxy:
"The quality of the paper submitted
with the llulletln tender was Inferior to
that of the Oazette Company."
Was there nnythlng In the cnll 'or
tenders Btnllng the quality of paper
thai must be offered? Did not the llul
letln offer to furnish any weight or
kind of paper the Chief Justice desired?
Aguln: "Portions of Its (the llulle
tln) type were not desirable."
Was there anything In the call for
tenders specifying the character of
type? Is It not true that the Chief Jus
tice would accept no bid that did not
offer as sample type "No. 11 Small Pica"
to be found first In the Merganthnler
Linotype Company's book of samples,
and obtained only by purchase fiom the
Mcrgcnlhaler Linotype Company, and
capable of being set only on a Mergcn
thaler Linotype machine' Was there
nnythlng In the speclfliatlons which
would give nn knowledge of what tho
Supreme Comt desired? Is It not true
thnt the Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court was morally certain of tho char
acter of type that would be ottered bv
the Hawaiian Oazette Company? Was
he not prepared to reject any bid on
this single point of type, although the
cnll for tenders contained nothing to
guide those making tenders?
There Is only ono way for the Chief
Just leu to nnswer these questions and
for that reason ho will display tho hot
ter part of valor und keep quiet,
Judging frqm tho methods followcl
In awarding this contract, the Chief
Justlco If he were an architect would
write out his tenders In some such
manner ns tills: I want a house built
It Is to be of wood; ono man has al
ready performed part of tho contract;
send In your bids. The llulletln enn
well believe that the Chief Justice was
not Influenced by the oxpeilence of
Tax Assessor Shaw. When .Mr. Shaw
called for tendeis he gavo specifica
tions. That an error was made by the
llulletln was duo to nn oversight, for
which proper return was made In dis
counts. As to those blanks to which the
Chief Justice, by proxy, refers. There
were three or four blanks reprinted on
account of slight typographical errors.
The proofs had been "O. Kcd" by the
proper court odlclal, And as further
proof that tho fault was not with Hie
llulletln. tho Supremo Court allowed
nayment for reprinted blanks.
The Chief Justlco will havo to get up
somo better excuses thnn he has time
far offered beforo tho people will be
lieve that the award of tho contract

Tho problem of nchlevlng nn Anglo
Saxon population for theso Islands Is
ono In all Its phases which may very
nroncrlv cngngo serious attention As
tho llulletln has pointed out It is an
opoprtunlty for tho small operator
which will furnish substantial attrac

What there Is hero In ngrlcultuio for

ers It Is not apparent to Its readers.
The facts arc the only -afc and honest
In. cntle which any reputable author
Ity would call to olfer to lirospccilvo
settlers. That tho Advertiser larks
this moral support In Its statements In
that article, has no doubt made the
"members of the Wahlawa Colony
Tho facts are, these: Tho members of
the Wnhlnwa Colony have Invested
several thousand dollars or Its equi

pursuits under a ltlght of Purchase
lease, and the end Is not J?1, lt IS

undertaking empty handed n a roimlr

government, Investments of n few inou-
sand of dollar for 200 acre lots under i
thn Illght of I'urchaso lease would '
prove moderately attractive financially,
The obstacle Is tho sacrifice of social
and educational advantages which
country life nenr a ety the size of Ho
nolulu offers In the United States. Peo
ple (lock to Southern California from
nil over the world ns tourists, and then
settle because they like it. because- life
there is attractive.
It Is safe to sav that very few tour'sts
to thr Islands settle permanently, be
cause they have fallen prey to tho at
tractiveness of the llf" her- Hono
lulu the t Ity of homes of the well-to-do.
Is the most effective advertisement, the
trump card, the winner of the npproval
or condemnation of the tourist, the
demonstration Irreslstnble of tho en
llghtemmnt and cultivation of the
v cnlthv and public spirited Anglo
Faxon In the tropics, which tho (iov
ernment can put forth. The second
best l snecefsful and prosperous net
tlomcnts of the type of Wahlawa.
This settlement Is not typically Hn
wallan and If effectively carried on
ti success offers an object lesson lo the
tourist more convincing than yards of

stream Into Southern Cnllfotnl&i and
remain to build their homes and Insti

In the thaln of evidence which con
vinces the tourist that "The Islands are
badly ovcr-vvitten." In short, enough
has bem written. The eyes of all the
world nre turned In our direction. The

the intervening waste of waters, to ad
mire, applaud and yield tho American
dollars In ready trilmto to our worth
and charm, but bow many returning
tourists say. "Don't go there."
Tho time has come for Honolulu
to "take the hull by tho horns" nnd

Cut Down n Trumpet Vine.
I. II. Hums will soon bring suit'
against the Mutual Telephono Co. for
damages resulting from the destruction
by some of the linemen of that corpor
ation of n linn trumpet vlru? nt his
home on rntmn street not long, ago.
Mr. Uurns states that, at the time the
linemen were ut work In Ills yard, t'icy
cut down a valuable trumpet vino .that
had been trained up outside one of he
windows. The upper tendrils were
colled about some of tho telephone
wires nnd that. Instead of eultlng'nway
this part, they cropped off the vine near
to the giound.
The Mutual Telephono Co. refused to
pay the damages and so suit will be In
stituted. This Is No Lead Pipe Cinch.

towns of this size the mayor Is seldom
paid for his services and the trustees
