Governor Dole snld nothing on the
subject of labor In his mebsigc. Of
course not. This Is one of the vital
subjects of Territorial advancement,

Fallowing out Its well known policy
of giving the latest news In all matters
of Interest to the people nnd the busi
ness community, tho Bulletin now
publishes the real estnto transactions
rocorded at the registrar's office. The
superiority of the Bulletin's manage
ment of this department over nil ccf-
temporaries Is that this paper gives a
complete list of all papers tiled up to
12 o'clock noon of tho day of publi
cation. A complete list nf nil trans.ir

edition. The subscription price of tliU

all local and foreign news.
It teems strango Indeed Hint although
It hits been In session fourteen dnvs the
Senate Is still awaiting tho receipt ol
the Governor's appointments. Tho re
quest of Senator White Is timely nnd
pertinent. It Is difficult to even Ima
gine Governor Dolo as acting promptly,
yet n deslro to facilitate public busi
ness ought to cause him to transmit
these appointments to the Senate nt
the earliest date possible after the
transmission of his messago. Why the
dclav ? Is It natural procrastination nr
does tho Governor fear for the fate of
his appointments nnd bellevo they will
stand a better show of acceptance later
In the session' The Governor1 Is fre
to tnko his own time, but ho can't gala
anything for himself or the Territory
by playing n game of delay.

KAHUNA AND 8CIUNCB.
The suggestion Is made that a meas
ure may bo Introduced In the Legisla
ture looking to the removal of the Inn
Hero Is a problem that the people
of so-called modern Ideas can dtspoan
ot with much less ease than their
Puritanical forefathers. People of !h
present dny are less disposed to feel
that they n'ro acting under the spcclil
dispensation of God, and all opposed In
them are heading, straight for oternsl
damnntlon, n hell with real brimstone
In It. The stiff neck of thi Purltui
Is less In evidence, except In Individual
cases that prop the rule. There u
more of the spirit of lho and let live.
Furthermore, some supposed chilli
ed thinkers In search of cure-alls hap
glcn birth to n sect Knows as Chris
tian Scientists, a so-called science

priests or doctors, or whatever you
may call them, of the faith expound
their Ideas, practice their preiepts and
make record of their accomplishments

conviction or fanaticism

Christian Scientist works with the sole
Idea of prolonging life nnd easing pain
while the Kahuna sometimes ndds to
this the efTort to hasten the dopartuii1
of nn Individual Into the next world.
How- much the mind assists medl-
fines men of the meiilcnl fraternity
know full well. The phvslclnn whose

whose mnnncrlsms or presence Is dis
tasteful might deal out nil the drugs

Considering then that civilization ac
cepts Chrlstlnn Science, that rachl
characteristics Inbred for centuries
cannot be crndlcated In less than emu
century, that the mind does have somo
power over matter. Is It Just or Is It at
all times ndvlsahlc to put the Kahuna
on the criminal schedule and set him
nsidp as not only useless but danger
ous? Of course the gient civilizing people
know It all. Ye-t It Is forever ch.mglig
front. Only a short tlnin ago It deter
mined to send all heathen who had not
heard of the Bible, straight to hell,
now It Is thinking of b'elng less harsh.
Again It was disposed to send all chil
dren not baptised to the samo futii'n
punishment, but It now Inclines to b
moro lenient. Finally, this samo
straight laced peoplo that Is giving the
world Its present civilization Is finding
b experience nnd thought that thcr
Is something good In nil beings create 1
by the ruling Infinite power, also that
biibnrlsin has Its conscience nnd civili
zation has its Idols.
It Is then possible that this saliifl
people may find even tho Kahuna not
exemplifying nil that Is bail by (fix
same reasoning with -which It reaches
tho conclusion that Christian Science)
lias not solved the problem of perfec
tion. The world Is full of contradij
ttons but It has found that the Golden
llulo Is a very effectlvo motto.
Having stopped a second time to
fight the Senate has taken a new stmt
to do a little business. The advantage
of the second squabble Is that It was
a few dajs shorter than tho first Whe-.i
these wrangles get down to the hour
limit the Sennto may possibly be abU
to catch up with the House.
