solid with his constituents. It Is
strange how In the estlmntloit-t)f the

P. (. days has become "Doss John" of
the present day.
If the gag rule were not adopted, the
Senate had better buy n stop clock
that can be trurned backward, If It
hopes to finish Its work In sixty days.
The length of picscnt discussions Indi
cates that something Is needed to
choke off endless debate.
Admitting that the delays in the
Senate arc duo to the nnrrow majority
of the predominating party, what a
time there would hac been had eich

As for the press, the Increasing

What Is the sense of referring the
word "proceedings" to Washington for
Interpretatlqn. Tho opinion of the lo
cal legislature Is Just as forceful ns
that of tho President or any other exe

Treasurer refuse to honor the drafts of
the Legislature for expenses. As

Tho value of not a few -of the bills
nlready before the Legislature will de
pend largely npon'the fate of the muni
cipal government plan. The "Hongs
underground wire measure whllo with
in tho province of tho Territorial Iw
makers to act upon, would under a
municipal government bo more appro
priate for tho city council to handle.
In view of tho changes In taxation, offi
cial salaries nnd specifically local mat
ters certain to come before tho Legis
lature and dependent largely upon, tho
decentralization of tho government, It
behooves the municipal rule men to
start their ball rolling ns soon as pos
sible. Tho liar Association Judgeship peti
tion whllo to tho point, comes n lit
tle Into In the day to Influence, Attorney
General Griggs. Mr. Griggs Is to leave
the Cabinet after the Inauguration nnd
unless ho hands the vexed Judgeship
question over to his successor, ho will
naturally mako his recommendation In

As Griggs has as yet failed to signify

PAYING Tlin CLAIMS.
That the fire clolhis will bo paid may
be put down as n self evident truth
It remains only for determination of
tho ways nnil'incans.
The Olinllan bill tends in tho right
direction. Some sort of a body must
be established to determlen the Justice
of demands for damages, yet If It Is the
Intention for the proposed commission
to take up the Individual demand of
every man, woman and child, the
claims commission will be assured.pei'
tnanent existence nnd our children's
children will lmc an opportunity to
sit on the commission to ueWrhlno
the damage done by tmY Chinatown life
of lflftO. Individual Japanese and Chi-,
neso will doubtless cause the greatest
dllllculty. .Chinatown was crowded
with nn Oriental population whose lit
tle nil consisted of a fen- trinkets anil
perhaps nil extra suit of clothes. It
Is the easiest thing In the world for
such peoplo to turn In a claim for $150
and equally difficult to dispute this
Hawaii can deal with its own people,
merchants nnd houneholdera whose
property was In evidence. Should the
courts, tho commission or the legisla
ture propose to deal with each claim
ant Individually, the work will be In
terminable and the result unsatlsfrc
tory to all concerned.
In handling the small Japanese and
Chinese claimants, nrbltrary action by
appropriation In lump sum should be
taken, leaving It to the respective Con
suls to parcel out the funds nmon?
their own people. So far as Japan Is
concerned It Is safe to predict that
any plan productive of long delays will
result in a diplomatic demand upon
the United States nnd Indirectly on the
Territory. This demand will be force
ful and icmilrc Immediate attention.
Tho Legislature should forestall such
a possibility If possible. This U can
do by placing the responsibility of th
distribution among foreign claimants
upon the shoulders of the foreign corf-mis.
; SOLDIERS 11 CLOTHING
The flshmarket nnd the Pacific Mali 1
wharf nnd streets leading from the
transport Sheridan thereto were filled
with buyers and sellers yesterday and
all Wednesday morning.
The sellers were soldiers from the
transport, the buyers were hnckmen,
dock laborers and the people coming
and going from the flshmarket. Shoes
shirts, blouses, blankets and overcoats
belonging to I'nclc Sam were freely
offered for sale at prices which would
lend an Intending purchaser to almost
understand that the goods were not
come by honestly.
A fine pair of shoes wos sold for one
dollar nnd a half whllo nn ovcitoat
went for three dullniis. Itlouces went
for from n dollar to two dollars nnd
blue flannel shirts uere n drug In 'ho
market. Twenty-live to thlrty-flvo
cents wns the ruling price.
Men on nil the transports coming
hero have carried on n brisk trade In
government clqthlng nnd supplies but
never has the thlug been carried on so
opennly ns nt the present time nnd In
broad daylight. Should the officers In
command of the troops on tho vessel

culty whatever In finding many of
their men In the retail clotHWig nnd
gents furnishing goods business and
doing n, lively trade In wearing apparel
suposed to be -for tho use of Uncle
Sam's enlisted men.

"Dangers beset the development of
tho Republic In which there is no re

themselves Impose. The danger Is that
