would be about as sensible as the posi

Ownership of the tug EIcu Is fast be
coming a bowling farce to which the
legislative wrangles don't hold a can
dle. When the executive officials gy
rate, turn sommersaults. nnd play
bide and seek with Federal authorities
bow can we expect that Hawaii's repu
tation for good horse American sensp
will be Increased.
The steady progress of the kinder
garten Is a sign of the times that makos
for future welfare with morn certainty
than possible or probable expansion
and profit In trade or commerce. With
the ( hlldrcn tct on the right education
al track the problems of tho future are
sure of Intelligent thought.
The Introduction of tuch Importnnt
muiurc3 as those relating to municipal
government, taxes and the fire claims
early In tho session augurs well for the
speedy despatch of public business. If
there Is to be n serious clash between
the legislative and executive authority
the sooner the discover) Is made nnd
the question put to the test, the better.
As n decisive agent In the scheme nf
decentralization the present Legislature
bids fair to gain a high degree of prom
inence in local history. 1 his Is one of
the first nnd most Important dutus that
urn be fulfilled In an Amcilran Terri
toi. The shock of revolutlon.irj
measures maj cause hard i.ames to he
called, but future generations will rise
up and heartllj applaud the men nctlVP
In releasing the people from the bonl
nge of centralized power.
Hundieds nnd even thousands of
hnmtseekers are pouring Into Wash
ington, Orcton and California, drawn
thlthrr bj the low rates of tiansporta
tlon made by the transcontinental
lallwnjs for the specific purpose of
bringing In settlers to make their
homes In the western country Is there
inntnlned In this no timely sugestlon
to the people of Hawaii who honestlv
deshe to bring to this Territory n class
of Immigrants who will build up tho
country.' mike their homes here and
bcionie desirable citizens' What Cali
fornia nnd the Western States are do
ing Hawaii can do. It It will but gu
about the matter In an honrst, straight
forward, aggressive manner.
Tho minority Is trying to break up
tho solid majority of the Legislature
and thereby gain Its ends. Of course It
Is. This is the plan of every political
minority In every legislative body, and
majority allegiance to principle, nnd
parly piomlses Is thereby tested to Its
fullest extent. Tho sharp alignment of
parties in the Legislature Is one of the
best things that could happen In our
law making body. It centralizes re
sponslblllty on tho party, makes Its
representatives moro thoughtful and
careful and demonstrates that under
our new American conditions a polltl
cal party stands for something more
Importnnt nnd moro serious than a
mere plcco of mnchlnery by which In'
dlv (duals may ride Into power.
GARBAGE CONTRACT SERVICE.
Piesldent Hnymond In his report for
the Hoard of Health advocate i turning
over the garbago an doxcavutor urvleo'
to nrlvate parties under commit. Tho
advantages to be gained by ontinctlng
for this service nre detailed ns follows:
1st, A much better service by
reason of the responsibility restlni;
with tho contractors, who will bo
able to handle labor better than
2d Saving of money to the tax
3d. Divorcing tho department
1th. Tho company handling the
garbage will be able to meet any
emergency and will rrovlde amply
for the rapid growth of the city,
an It will be to Its advantage to
get nil the business It tan
l)r Hajmond's details are not sum
clently specific to analyze thoroughly
and In view of the experience In many
cities where public work has been
turned ocr to private corporations, it
Is ensy to meet the assertion of bene
fits by equally positive denials.
The whole tendencj of tho times Is
toward Increasing government owner
ship and control a tendency Influence-1
by numerous failures and Increased ex
pense occasioned by putting public
business In the hands of private corpor
ations, One of the chief sources of cor
ruptlon In all governments of tho pres
ent day Is found In the contract sys
tem, (Internments are taking their
work out of the hands of corporations.
nnd find that the tatpajcr Is thereby
benefited the work done cheaper nnd
better, and politics eliminated.
No corporation will take over this
garbage service without a good profit It
In sight Is It not then to the advan
tage of the tnxpajer that the govern
ment continue to carry on this sstcm
at cost price, and the corporation profit
be saved to the taxpayer?
UNDERGROUIND WIRE HILL.
When propci 1 amended the Hoogs
'underground wire bill will be one nf
the best of the minor progressive meas
ures presented In the Legislature.
Honolulu has had Its fill of overheid
wires, the consequent destruction to
trees, danger from live wires nnd the
marring of beautiful avenues by a mass
of telephone nnd electric light wires
strung with cnrcless profusion on ugly
poles. Hv vlrtuoof the very general
ue of the telephone there nrc few If
nny cities of the size of Honolulu where
the streets are more numerously clad
In wired regalia. There Is no city where
abencc of there wires on public thor
oughfares will do more to enhance tho
bcaut of the already attractive strcetB
As previously Intimated hj this pi
per, this bill deals with future corpor
ations proposing to do business In the
city. The first amendment then should
lie diawn with a view to placing all
wires present nnd future In under
ground conduits This bill Includes
electrical wires onl) It should Include
telephone wires ns well The supposi
tion Is that the law Is to be enacted for
the benefit of the cltj In general and
no corporation or corporations In par
ticular In cnrrlng out the Idea of public
benefit If will be necessary to still-c out
that pottlon of the hill which refers to
the size of the plant with "a capacity
Mifl'rlcnt to continually supply for pub
lic use 10,000 lights of 10 candle power
each" This section In fact gives rise
to tho vcr) natuial query as to which
electrical company's ofllci first s'lgttcst
cd the measure. Let every wire of
whatever capacity and whither from a
fat coiporatlon or Jim Crow plant fol
low the same underground course.
Finally. In order that every corpora
tion using wires for the transmission of
energy or messages ma) stand on nn
equality, the measure should be so
amended ns to place the construction
and control of the wire conduits In the
hands of the government. Territorial
or city. Each and every person should
hnvc full rights to use these condu'ts
on the pa)mcnt of a stipulated rental to
the government which shall be suffi
cient to pay for maintenance nnd In the
course of a term of )enis pay foi the
original cost of construction.
With these amendments this meas
ure will be highly satisfactory and
highly beneficial to this community, a
credit to Its sponsor and the legislators
by whose vote It becomes . law. The
Introducer might not recognize It In the
amended form, but the adoption of the
suggested changes will assure him n
place nn'ong the progressive leaders of
the countr). The Improved appearance
of the streets and equality of all per
sons desiring to enter the wiring
bi'slncss would Indeed be sufllclenL re
ward for Ihe thouglufulness nnd fore
