Former Rcpiescntatlve Hooert Ry
croft comes feu ward with a public lark
suggestion that ought to receive the
thoughtful consideration o' legislators
and the people of Honolulu. The po9
nihilities for beautifying the city and
nt the same time furnishing lireithlns
places for the people of crowded dis
tricts aro so marked that It Is lemaik-
nblo so much Indifference ha 'hnr.u-
terlzcd this phase nf public iclminls
tration. Certainly Honolulu has li.nl
enough experlen to vvarinn M'e ex
pectation that the liw makM8 u.d pro
viders will build for the future and
that on broad lines.
EXTENDING FIRE LIMITS.
The passage of the Emmclttth reso
lution having for Its object the exten
sion of Honolulu lire limits Is a positive
step In the right direction. It has the
true progressive ring which it is to be
hoped will be a constant quantity
throughout the session
Those who hold that the extension
of fire limits Is a favor to the rich and
not tho poor, must after more care' il
thought bo convinced of their error.
The extension of fire limits Is Indeed a
marked advantage to tho poorer
classes. Experience here and elsewhere
lias shown that mnnicd men can make
far greater profits when allowed to
erect shacks, which arc Inexpensive.
nnd furnish anv thing but acceptable!
homes. Tho Chinatown flro and the dis
tress following is tho best possible evi
dence that the poor people aro tho
principal sufferers when without tho
protection of fire proof buildings. Tho
sweep of tho Chinatown flro would
have been Impossible If all or a fair
proportion of the buildings had been
of brick or other fire proof material.
A repetition of that disaster can only
bo guarded ngalnst with reasonably
Btirety by extending the flro limits over
nil the more Important business sec
tions. HAWAII STATEHOOD.
Hawaii will never bo admitted to
statehood until it has proved Itself
worthy, certainly not until It has
shown Itself capable of dividing its
territory Into Independent municipali
ties. It Is a mistake, howiver, to delay
the appeal for statehood until tho mu
nicipal organization Is completed.
At best tho State of Hawaii Is a long
way off, much more distant In fact by
Vlrtuo of tho Islands having como uu
Hawaii Is not In practically tho same
tlmo as Porto Rico and tho Philippines.
Try as. wo may, It will bo difficult to
convince tho people of tho States that
Hawaii Is not In virtually tho same
category as tho other "now posses
sions." The Territorial executlvo In Its
constant friction with 1'cdernl uuthoii

votors of tho Mainland or Congress

counter to national organizations at
the outset of our Territorial career.
If then It Is drslied to nttnln state
hood within a rensomhle period of
Territorial probation it behooves all
parties and all factions to be flrmh
united In each and overv appeal made
to Congrefs for an advance toward thn
goal of nn Independent State. Though
Congress ma) listen to the first appeal,
though the Territory may not bo ready
for statehood now. an act of the Legis
lature with this end In view will create
n tlriii conviction that Hawaii's aspir
ations arc progressive rather than
retrogressive. Frequent repetition of
the appeal and the request must be
made early and often to be effective
will finally attract Interested attention,
followed b) careful Investigation nnd
eventually the prize will be won. Ha

Tho Drown Incident In the Senate
Tuoscl.iv afternoon shows that the mn-
Jorltj party made a must unfortunate
selection In th echoic c of Dr. Russell ns

The public school system of this Ter

from tourists ns well as others who

Hllo It Is dlincult under the present
system nnd with the limited appropria
tions for both teachers and buildings
for the English-speaking pupils to
make the progress to which attention
to their studies entitles them. The
complaint Is common among pupils
that at the beginning of n school term
they aro frequently kept In the same
grade of books that they finished dur
ing the previous term and the. regular
excuso Is that the children whoso
mother tongue Is not English have
not made as rapid progress ns they
nnd consequently they nre held back.
It would seem that thoonly remedy for
this Is larger school buildings and ail
