A l.os Angeles newspaperman wna
held up by highwaymen. The robbcru
got $1.73. Enough said.
Automobiles are doing their best to
pet up a horse laugh on the hacks.
Thus far It Is a case of nip and tuck
Display of a fair degree of civic
pride Is all that is needed to promptly
carry through legislation extending
the Are limits In Honolulu.
Nov Senator Achl has resigned from
a committee. President Russell was
wise In selecting tho successor. Carter
will hang on to the crack of doom.
The sorrow of tho Advertiser gang
over waning prestlgo would be touch
Ing In the extreme. If It were not made
fo highly ridiculous and laughablo by
the venomous spite that characterizes
Its expiring gasps.
Laud Commissioner Brown reports
unfavorably to Gear and favorably to1
Wilcox. This la a valuable addition to j
the history of the country, hut what'
of the drafts on the $3,000 for Inclden-j
tals. Where does the taxpayer get off
In thU liinkptlni- tnur?
The expert accountant Idea Is all
right, particularly If It be extended
to all parts of the government and tho
heads of departments required to ac
count for every cent expended. This
generality "Incidentals' that plays
such an Important part In appropria
tions Is at the bootom of every finan
Chicago disposed of tho "desertion of
wives" problem by making an efforl
to discover tho causes. Should our
own Legislature take somo such action
It mUht rid Itself of some of the warm
and lengthy arguments of the session.
Delaware handles the wife deserter at
the whipping post and Germany puts
him at hard labor, the profits to co lo
It now appears, according to the cor
respondent of nn esteemed contempor
ary, that Delegate Win, Haywood's bills
(ire the only ones that passed Conciesa
Sow will tho esteemed contemporary
explain whether Haywood has told his
Washington friends that he hoped
Delegate Wilcox would keep his seat
In order that the Haywood Influence In
tho lobby would bo of some account?
Delegate Wilcox can occupy his vaca
lion pwlod to good effect by teaching
some of our legislators In the Amort
can methods of facilitating business.
He must know by this time that It Is
the hard work In the committees and
bringing measures promptly to n voto
not the lengthy discussions and
speeches on the floor of the Legisla
ture tbnt accomplishes something In
the Interests of the people.
HaJ tho "government" taken the
slight trouble to allow Itself to be
prompted by progressive Ideas and a
deslro to assist legislation, the "gov
ernment" estimates so unceremonious
ly turned down by the Senate would
havo taken possible municipal legisla
tion Into consideration. In other
words, the estlmntes could have been
based on "with" and "without the
munlclplal divisions. The time ex
pended on the additional work would
not have been more completely wasted
than the thought given tho' document
now before tho Leglslatuio.
The Investigation of the Illo disaster
brings to light tho chances that are
repeatedly taken by captains nnd pilots
In nearly every port of the world. A
bca captain like tho railroad engineer
Is always between two llrcs. If he Is
behind time he Is taken to task by
tho enners, If he meets an accident,
when slighting biipposed, not actual,
hard and fast rules ho has to shoulder
the rfsopnslblllty for llcs' lost ami
usually gives hU own. Furthermore,
the pubiiengcrs ttasnselvett are not en
tirely without blame. It was the Itlo
disaster that savW tho captain of tho
Alamedu from severe censure on her
last trip Into San Francisco bay. When
the pievalllng cry Is "mako time" on
nil lines of transportation, It Is only
nn occasional counting of tho cost that
brings people to their senses.
Tho Congressllonnl discussion of
West Point hazing has In ought out a
stntement from Senator Hawley of
Conectlcut that will pleaso the Sunday
school teachers and convince tho mod
ern youth that real good hoys are not
to bo laughed nt. On being asked If a
llttlo hazing wero not necessary to
"toughen" a boy, Senator Hawley re
sponded with a forceful negative "That
Is all i mistaken Idea. I had two men
on my staff during tho war who would
go into hell If necessary to do thnlr
duty, and yet they were so tendor
hearted that tears camo to their eyes
to we, any ono In pain. I hud rather
recruit n regiment from n Sunday
school than from the Hon cry or any
other plnco where boys arc taught to
lako hard knocks and care for them
selves. In the end (ho Sunday school
boy will remain on the field of battle
longer than the other."
Strict Sunday tans that lay down a
schedule for Sabbath observance al
ways have been and nlways will be a
failure. They meet with about the
same results as would the establish
ment of a State religion. On Sunday as
any other day the citizen Iras a right to
dd ns he pleases so long as he does not
Interfere with the comfort and peace of
mind of his neighbors. The day when
the American people will accept "llluft
Laws" has passed Into history. As long
as n man minds his own business on
Sunday he fulfills every generally ac
cepted law and custom. Ills final ana
wcr must be to his God and while hu
manity may pass n Judgment on how
this God should bo served the verdict
has no more chance of being right than
the opinion of the Individual proceeded
against. If, for Instance, our church
members can listen to Biblical teach
ings and feel highly satisfied In Sunday
Idleness and contemplation, while their
Oriental employes arc sweating In the
fields to create moro dividends, that's
the church members' lookout. Tho
community has no particular business
with It except to sec that no ono la
forcod to work Sunday.
The Supreme Court rendered a deci
sion today In the case of Hong Kim
vs. Kahllo Hnpat, appeal from the
Fourth Circuit. The complainant
prayed for a recesslonl of a contract of
lease with the defendant for certain
lands near lilies which were described
In the lease ns bounded on one side by
a road. It nppears that tho defendant
thought there was a road as described.
The Court holds: Cancellation of a
lease on the ground that It was ob
tained by misrepresentation will not
be decreed where the alleged false rep
resentation, as understood by the party
making It nnd as by him Intended to be
understood by the other party, was In
fact true, and where the party com
plaining, If he did not In fact so under
stand It. placed a construction upon the
representation that was not Justified by
the language used, under all the cir
cumstances of the case.
Also, equity will not enforce a for
feiture of the estate created by a lease
for breach of one of the covenants
Also, the attorneys fees set forth In
section 1192 of tho Civil !-aws of 1897,
cannot be concctly taxed In nn equity
The complainant was represented
by L. A. Dickey and tho defendant by
Paul Neumann, T. C. Illdgewny and C.
M. Lo Blonde.

The tolo of Camlllc Is a difficult one,
but the- artistic success of Miss Rob

In tho Initial act, that tho Camlllo of
Dumas was beforo them. It was not
tho 'Camllle as distorted by popular
fancy and prejudice.
The support In tho third, fourth and
last ects was of Btich a quality, that the
perfect work of the principal figure was
not marred or ruffled. Henderson, as

Tho production ns a whole was frc
