The discission of George A. Dm Is'
candidacy for n Judgeship given by tho
Advertiser this mornln; Is a magnlfi
cent commentary on the wisdom and
nbllity of former President Dole who
appointed Mr. Davis to the bench and
of Governor Dole who recummended
Mr. D.ivls to the same position tindrr
the Territory. The amount of homo
sense or (ouslsleilt. honest .utloH pos
sessed lij the got eminent and Its organ
Is not sulllclcnt to create public confl
uence In cither.
Collector Stacknble's 'Ullng retard
ing the boarding of steamers fiom San
Francisco Is a sensible toniluslou to
a much discussed problem. Having no
other means or obtaining news cf the
world than from the flics nnd des
patches brought by the seeumers, the
newspaper men arc peiformlng a pub
lic service In securing papers from tho
steamers as soon ns possible, in no
other American port Is there such good
reason to warrant the privilege grant
ed by Collector Stackablc nnd there Is
no prospect that the collector will come
In conflict with the opinion of his su
periors by reason of his ruling.
BUYING TIM DRUGS.
Tlie purchase of $12 000 worth of
dings by the Board of Health without
calling for tenders conflims the tax
payer In the belief Unit his Interests
have oeen slighted by this branch of
the public service. The slight Is not
as marked In this Instance as exempli
ll(d In the methods of Chief Justice
Fiear of the Supreme Court of the
Territory, supposed to be above re
pioach. The statement of President Raymond
Is such as to allay sharp criticism at
present since he comes forward with
an assertion that shows he Is working
nloug the right line. He should by all
means be allowed a reasonable time In
which to perfect tho plan.
A valid reason for making purchases
of drugs In the open market und doing
away with tho purchase under contract
has jot to be stall). 'It Is useless to
put forward the argument that the
character of drugs furnished Is not as
good when obtained under contract as
In purchasing on order in the open
market. Should the drugs show de
terioration. If nn Inferior nrtlcle Is fur
nished In nny particular by tho suc
cessful bidder, It Is alone the fault of
public olllcers If such Inferior drugs
aro accepted, or If accepted and found
of Inferior finality are not tinned back
to the salesmen. It should be. It Is
Indeed possible to obtain first cl us or
fresh material In drugs. Just ns It Is the
groceries or meats In which the Board
of Health deals.
The business houses of the city In
any line are not piedlBposcd to pass off
an Inferior article on any department
when fulfilling contracts. Should such
nn instance arise, tho fault Is with tho
public olllcer If there Is n repetition.
Purchase by competitive bids, with pos
sible exceptions such ns the methods
taken up by the Chief Justice, always
secures a lower price to thu taxpayer.
Piopcr regard for the Interests, of the
taxpayer will put tho purchase of drivs
by tho Iloaul-of Health on the sanio
plane as all of Its other purchases.
URYAN'S "THE COMMONER"
In tho first issue of his "The Com
moner" Editor Wm. J. Bryan sajs ho
need make no apology for the use of
tho term, and straightway goes to woik
to explain why ho uses It. The mere
fact that Editor Bryan feels called upon
to make an explanation Is the most dp
llous comment that (ould bo offcrejl. i
shows lis opponents thnt there Is an
apparent If not real desire to create a
class cenllmcnt which Bhould not exist
nnd certainly If It does exist to the
slightest extent will not bo lessened
by oft calling attention to It und as
sociating tho progressive present with
tho degrading Influences of the pust,
"Tho Commoner" Is not brilliant
cither In material thought or mechani
cal tmke-up. It shows at onco that
Bryan must depend on his freo ndver
tlslng ns a candidate and his reputa
tion ns an orator to keep his paper
going. Edited by any other poison
than Dryan, "Tho Commoner" would
attract no wider attention than tho
most jommonplaco country weekly or
political pamphlet. Tho piper 'will
doubtless be bought fur and wide to see
"what Bryan says" but should ho by
any of the shifting phases of politics
be relegated to tho background, ho
would mako a very precarious living na
n newspaper wiltcr.
In Its ngitntlnn against tho Trusts
and disapproval of an "nrlstoci.icy of
wealth." "Tho Commoner" has nn op
portunity not without its veiy estima
ble features. Should tho American Re
public reach that stago where It Is In
tho hands of associated corporations.
It will Indeed bo on tho flee road to
tho destruction of n strong, Independent
citizenship, Tho present tendency Is
unquestionably In that direction. It
will never be checked by nrouslng a
class sentiment,'' It can be checked by
a calm nnd honest presentation of the
effect if corporation or trade combina
tions tipon the Individual citizen, In
lits business or In the homo.
Bryin's mistakes are perliapfe best
exemplified In his attitude towati' tno
Supremo Court nnd the Inronii ta:,
Should this phase of taxation ba plac
ed before the people It is safe to say
they would vote by overwhelming ma
jority for the Income tax. Bryan Is not
such a fool that he doesn't know It.
Yet, to obtain this end he attacks the
Integrity of the Supreme Court and
thereby arouses antagonism where he
might well have support. "Vt Is Mi
method of peculiar approach that
onuses thoughtful people to distrust
Bonn's stand on public question's.
When a peoplo comes to distrust a
man's honest- of purpose his power U
gone. The first lssuo of "Tho Com
moner" docs not promise that It will
strengthen Bryan or his party.

Mr. Richards gavo an Interesting
story of the ravages of the storm on
Maul. He said nil public schools were
suspended at Kahulul and Wnlluku for

Work on the Knhiiliit railroad was
suspended and communication with
Pala, broken. Mr. Richards will return
to Man' next week to do further church
work under tho nusplces of the Hawa

Mr. nichnrds Is especially Interested
In th" temperance work that has been
go'iic on nnd believes that piibllc sen
timent is nt a point where positive
legislation upon the subject will be
popular. He said: "My own Impression
Is that tho Independent party will
make a very Itnportnnt move In thlB
rin'tcr nt the coming session of the
"Mr. Emmelutli has a bill which ho
submitted to me. I approve of It un
reservedly anil I consider It nn excel
lent law for theso Islands. I think the
people should glvp the Independents n
first elass chance to do tho best they
an In temperance legislation. I believe
the party Is united for better liquor
laws and I also believe tho big major
ity In the best class of society will
back the party up.
"Tho most corrupting thing In the
world, It seems to me, Is tho present
law, which allows tho request of one
man for n Ihiuor license to determine
the existence of a. saloon in a com
munity. "I pronounco tho license sjstem a
failure In tho Islnndo. License has not
leduted tho Illicit sale of liquor one
bit. In some localities, I observe that
Illicit liquor selling lias run out the
legal dealers. In many Instances these
licenses aro obtained by men who woie
illicit dealers In light wlno nnd beer,
merely to make It possible foi them trt
deal Illicitly In stronger liquor. They
bad broken tho law before: they will
break It again. This has been proved
over and over again In many placen.
notably In Knnn.
"To reduce tho saloon to n dlspen
sary Is the wisest plan vhat can be pro
posed, ns It appears to me. Pncler the
plan, all can get liquor who want It:
treating will bo n thing of the pasl
and the revenues of the government
will bo Increased. I do not see how
anybody except the saloon keeper enn
object to the dlsnensaiy plan.
"Tho most Important part of the
bill, In by judgment, Is the local option
feat inc. Now. nt tho request of one
mnn, a saloon can ho foisted upon tho
community. Under tho local option
feature, the people themselves will do
cldo whether a dispensary Is wanted or

PACIFIC CARRYING TRADE.
j j Seattle P.-I.
Tho new steamer Hawaiian has left
Ne,v( Xorl for 'ho Pacific coast, nnd
upon her arrival hero will enter tho
American-Hawaiian trade, for tho
handling of which six largo freight
carrier hnvo already been contracted
for by one corripany . . 1
Tho building of these new vessel
may servo to recall tho fact that thcro
has lieon a marvelous advancement
lurlriK'ithc pact fifteen yearn In tho
trans-Pacific nnd coastwlso trade. In
the early dayH travel between Coast
points was entirely by steamer. There
were no railroads, and because of thla
fact tho foundations wero laid for!
great shipping business which has con
tinued to grow In spite of the competi
tion which arose when the Coast states
wero connected by rail,
It Is not so many years ago that
practically nil of tho Pacific biisrnfcsa
was controlled and easily handled by
the Pacific Mall, the Oriental and Occi
dental and tho Pacific Const Steam
ship Company. Some of the ships of
these companies were well eiiullipcll,
though malt as compared with Mho
moro modern vessels; most of Ihohi;
hovvvocr. were of nn Inferior typo ns
far as comforts nnd conveniences wero
concerned, nnd would hnrdly lie patron
ized now hy people who have become
ncciistonicd to the larger, finer and
fastei vessels of today.
Thcro was little to be shipped from
this country to tho Orient, with tho
possible exception of lumber, nml be
fore the time when the transcontinen
tal roads had been put through there
wad no reason for shipping Oriental
goods to "any Coast port except San
Krnnclsco. With the completion of tho
Cnnndlan Pnrlfic n chango took place
arid an Orlentnl business was opened
along the northern nnd shorter route.
A bid was mndo for passenger travel,
and In tho Impresses travelers across
the Pacific were able to'uso the finest
vessels leaving the Coast for China
A few years after the completion of
ho Cascade tunnel and the pperatlon of
1 through service hy the Northern Pa
cific a line of freight nnd passenger
steamers was opened from Tncoma to
the Orient under the direction of that
transcontinental company. Shortly nf
terward, with tho completion of tho
Great Northern, tho great Japaneso
steamship company, the Nippon Yusen
Kntsha. Inaugurated regular sailings
from Seattle At about the same time
a tramp lino of steamers operating In
connection with the Oregon Railway A
Navigation, Company opened a trans
pacific servlco from the Columbia to
Yokohama nnd Hongkong. All these
lines arc still doing business, and the
demands upon them will tncrenso with
each succeeding year. t
As a climax to this fien record,, of
mnrltlmo activity came the announce
ment of tho pin pose of the Great Nor
thern railway to construct those levi
athans of 22.000 tons which aro to ho
operated exclusively In the trnns-Pn-clflc
trade. These vessels will be tho
wonders of the merchant carrying ser
vice, nnd the fact that vessels of this
size aro first to be used In the Pacific
Is proof that transportation people seo
Immense possibilities for business In
the future trade between tho Pacific
coast and thu Orient.
Passenger carriers crossing tho Pa
cific already contemplate placing finer
boats In the service. Regular steamers
now sail from nrltlsh Columbia to Ha
waii nnd Australia. A line Is In oper
ation fiom Puget sound ,tp Honolulu.
l Is only a short time until there vv III
bo n regular service fiom the Coast to
Manila, , Tho Immense growth of the
Alaska business has called Into requisi
tion an Immense fleet of steamship's
and more arc building for this Import
ant service. In fact, the Incrcaso In
tho 'amount of steam tonnage now re
quired on tho Coast Is one of the most
significant features in the story of the
last few yoais of splendid progress.
