TUESDAY KEIIHt'AUY 11 1'iOt.
What were the citizens of Haw-nll
luring the period between annexitlon
and tho establishment of the Terrltoiy,
n people without a country?
The Judge who allowed cigarettes ns
the basis for an absolute divorce ought
to havo n monument erected to his
memory, and a copy of his decree made
a text book In every public school.
Had the public nuy conlUUnce what
ever In the honesty oHntcgrlty of pur
pose of the AiUertlsei. the numerous
and conlllctlng explanations of Its per
sonally conducted shooting scrape
might have some foice and effect, fu
ller the circumstances the organ's pro
testations are merely n laughing stock.
Argument over the time of the Chi
nese New Year Is on the same order as
tho constitution follows the Hag dis
cussion. Either decision falls to sntlsfy
everjone. The refusal of the Chinese
citizens to kowtow to the Son of Heav

lightened progress to warrant the citi

Tho conversion of MOO Filipinos to
the Protestant faith hounds large, but
oVrrlcncc has not led the general pub

enlightened people take up with a new
religion as they do with a new toy. It
Is snfo to say the Protestant faith Is

the converted Filipinos ns are the prin
ciples of' the American Constitution.
If, however, this revUnl causes the

A bond Issue Is about the only way
open to the Territory for paying the
extensive (Ire claims. Should a bar
ter for Honolulu be passed there will
doubtless bo nn effort to force tho
bonded debt upon Honolulu. Such n
measure ought and probably would fall.
The same reasoning that would accom
plish Its defeat ought to secure a part
payment of the debt through the turn
ing back of national revenues collected
nt Hawaiian ports. Congress estab
lished n precedent In dealing with Por
to It! ro that might bo followed In Ha
waii If the Legislature and the Dele
gate mado the effort to accomplish
such an end.
Cuba's constitutional convention has
voted for a free franchise nnd minority
representation. The first nlready exIstB
In Hawaii and the last Is likely to' bn

take something of the shape of a sop to
a minority faction that has In times

Ily what right, title or Inteicat does
tho I'ubllc Works department allow 1.1
lllia stieet to lioroiAe blocked to traffic
Ly reason of tho Itnpid Trnnslt com
pany's operations!. Does this Transit
company own tho "government" de
partment or the public streets or dues
the government own the Trnnslt com
pany? Has tho taxpayer or property
holder any right whatever in tho esti
mation of tho goernmcnt or the pub
lic works department? If ho has thero
Is no evidence of it on I.lllha street.
Tho statement may bo made that It Is
Imposslblo for tho Hnpld Transit 10m
pnny to lay Its tracks without blocking
this stieet. Such a. statement Is bosh
pure nnd simple. Any man, woman or
child who has ever witnessed tiack
laying operations In any of the "cor
rupt" municipalities of the Mainland
from Now York to San Krnnclsco know
It to be bosh. New York, Iloston and
., San Francisco transit companies have
put down tracks on streets much nnr
tower nnd requiring equally extenslvo
excavations but they arc not allowed
to blockade the street.
It might be moro expensive to tho
Transit company If It wcro forced to
conduct Its operations In a manner
that would not block I.lllha street. It
doubtless would be moro expensive. Is
there anything in tho company's char
ter nuthurlliiK the I'ubllc Works de
partment to nllow this private corpor
ation to havo full tontiol over tho
streets thnt it may savo money nt an
expense of serious Inconvenlcnco to
property holders and danger to persons
trnvcislng the public highway In 3ar-l
riages; inoro is not. And such was
not and is not the spirit or Intent of
the charter. Thnt the conditions tin

tinue tn exist and to coexist witli the
Indifference or consent of the l'uhlle
Works department tells Its own story,
s. far as the talmei la concerned. It
shows cither Incompetence or Indiffer
ence or a desire to help the corporation
out at the public expense. The Uullctln
Is not disponed to charge the latter,
i but ncceptan of either the other
horns of the dilemma by the depatt
mom accomplishes tho same result tn
tlio equation. t
WHIPPING I'OST IJIiVIVAL.
The revival of whipping as punish

Connecticut is an xpctlment thnt Wli
be watihcd with great Interest by nil
thnso inteiested In reformatory meas

If Connecticut mnkes a Hirers of itj

There Is every icason to bcllce that
this modernized whipping post tan

against it was created to a pent ex

Hard neatlcd Puritans were from the

As every man cin nttcst. it Is the
sting of the slipper and the ignominy
of being upset over the mother's knee,
tint has real force nnd effect In the
pteei.tlou of future wrong doing. It
Is the sting of the ruler rather, than a
hri 'ally bruised hand that causes the
school boy to think twice before run
ning counter to the mandates of bis

spanking can be extended In such of
fenders as usually appear from time to

II Hawaii's reformatory system had
reached anything like a modern stan
dard In other details It might be well
to suggest the Introduction of Hogging
ns one of our penul Institutions. Under
the (li'cumstnmcs. with reformatory
"standards and methods comparable
only with the South where pinetlcnlly
no study Is made of the criminal or
outhful offender, Hawaii has enough
tn do in advancing nnd modernizing
such Institutions ns It has without tag

prepnied to carry out. Those Interested
In reformation. howe-er, should not

tho results in Connecticut.

FOR PREVENTING 8IIIPWUECK8
Shipping shtntstlcs show 'that JLha
recent Btorms along the western'ciJast
of: Hrltlsh Columbia have surpassed In
general destructlvcncss nny previous
visitations. From Cape lleala north
along the Vancouver Island seaboard
has long been dreaded ground for navl
gnlois, n portion of It being known by
the significant name of "the graveyard
of the Pacific."
It will Interest those whose calling
takes them into these waters to learn
that an Invention Is now being Inves
tigated by the marine authorities nnd
navigators nt Soulhend-qn-Sea) which
I' It may not go a' long way townrd
making light houses obsolete nnd un
necessary, Is expected to be of much
value In the prevention of shipwreck
from nny ono of 90 per cent of the usual
cnusei. This is nn automatic system of
signalling which will warn ships of
their approach to dangerous rocks and
coasts In nil weathers when even a
flashing light might not be seen and
tho booming of a foghorn be unheard.
A metallic conductor Is fixed on nn
clcvntlon nshnro or n light ship or reef
or light house. Krom this, nctherlc
waves nro tinnsmltted over a zone
which has a radius of seven mites. All
vessels within that area which nre fit
ted with receivers nre warned of their
proximity tfl'Hnngpr. the illstancu-jiml
tho point of the compass being regis
tercd. At the same time, n b?ll rings
and the receiving Instrument records
the name of the place that Is being np
pro.ich.eil. Tho automatic part of th
Invention consists of steel benrlngs
with n number of teeth which pass over
a Morse transmitter.
No operators arc needed. The In
struments or machine works absolutely
automatically. In Its elementary prin
ciples, the system resembles Marconi's
method of wireless telegraphy, but In
detail thcO'stem Is essentially differ
ent. Tho committee of investigation
at Soutliend-on-Sca has enthusiastical

ting It to a variety of tests In both fair
nnd foul weather, and n syndicate Is
now being formed to cngnge In Its
