It's n sure thing that tho antagonism

that tho Organ cannot nnd a single

Yes Indeed, the Hawaiian Legislature
has made nun) breaks, but It hasn't
caught up with the State of Montana
where the acting gocrno- signed a bill
that had not passed the third reading
In the State Senate. This came about
through eirors of the clerks, and only
the courts can straighten out the affair
by killing the law nffr the calnn'
Ooernor Dole refuses a request of
the Home because he can't see of what
assistance the Information desired will
,bo to the transaction o' business. The
Governor has a right to his opinion,
but when was he appointed a director
or father confessor to the legislative
body? Under the circumstances, the
Coiornor must shoulder the major por
tion of the responsibility for delas In
the transaction of leglslathc business.
Speaking of Itepubllcanlsm. the only
thing the Dole regime has done since
tho Territory was erected has been to
continue a series of conflicts with Fed
eral nitthorlt and b means of Its
foolish attitude toward rcprcsestntUes
of the people tiling the llepubllcan
policy of expansion Into disrepute. If
moro was eer done In nn executive
' department to bring discredit to tho
party, than has been accomplished here
In Hawaii It Is up to the Morning Or
gan to cite the Instance.
LAUOU PROBLEM QUERY.
Starting out as an orglnal white la'
bur advocate W N. Armstrong returns
to Hawaii bclletlng that American
mall farmers cauuot be obtained for
the Hawaiian sugar fields and we must
depend on the Porto Klenn, the South
ern negro and what not.
Mr. Armstrong does not have tho
pace In a newspaper Interview to go
Into extended details of the reasonl
that hae caused him to reach this con
clusion It Is lumped In the assertion
that Units arc too good nnd land too
plentiful on the Mainland to cause Ha
wall to be glen a second thought
Prosperous times and abundance of
land Is admitted, but It would be: In
teresting and valuable If Mr. Arm
Strong would explain the big transcon
tinental migration that Is now gotnj
on whereby thousands of "home seek
ers" are coming Into the Coast States,
pne of the most recent dispatches tells
of some 1-100 home seekers arriving at
Spokane In ono lot This Is merely on
of many train loads of migratory fami
lies that have been pouring Into Wash
ington, Oiegon and California for the
last two months. Most of them come
from the Mlddlo West, north of the
Mason and Dlxem line, from tho very
center of the most prosperous section
of the country.
These homesecklng crowds Indicate
that tho old Yankee migratory spirit If
not dead notwithstanding the great na
tional era of prosperity It shows thai
the white farmers will move along new
or old routes If proper Inducements nnd
cheap transportation ratec are held nut
It Is unquestionably true that tho
American farmer will not work with
or, lower himself to the labor stan
dards of Asiatics or negroes. And If
Is at Just this point that tho local ex
periments with American farmers have
made a slgnnl failure. No American
farmer will set himself and his family
down In n wilderness of Orientals. No
colony of flvo or ten American families
gives any prospect of success to the lo
cal plantations. Only through tbo Im
portation of fifty families or more for
each plantation Is there tho least pos
sibility of the Amorlcan farmer bolnfl
contented on any Hawaiian plantation
I or proving ri satisfactory investment
for the plantation owners.
Fifty or one hundred American farm
ers put down on anv ono of our planta
tions would constitute a fair sized com
munity separate and apart from Asia
tics or any btlicr laborers of a similar
class. Until such, tlmo as this policy
Is carried out there Is very reason why
vvhlto labor should bn Impossible for
Hawaii. When It Is taken up, the
Bulletin believes the American farmer
will look with as much favor on mlga
tlon to Hawaii as he does now upon
seeking a new homo nnd better pros
pects In the far West.
As Mr. Armstiong his given the la
bor problem constdefnble study, hl
Ideas on this phaso of the matter would
V tie read with widespread interest.
The Marvellous Strides
Ahead She Has Made
STATEMENTS OF A MAN
WHO WAS ONCE HERE
Times Are Not the Same as When
Kalakaua Lived Surprise
at Honolulu's News
papers. for the past several weeks Ed Tuck
er an old time resldmt of Honolulu,
has been renewing old friendships
along the beach and uptown.
After an nbsence of fourteen )cars
the former chief engineer of the Kl
u.iii has returned to Honolulu to find
changes that. If predLtcd nt the time
he left, would havo bien looked upon
Thlrt) -three enrs ago, Mr. Tucker,
then a voting man, made his first visit
to Honolulu In the Pacific Mall steamer
Collma, running from Hnn Francisco to
Sjdney. In 1877, he took up his resi
dence here and remained until 18SC,
when he returned to San Francisco
nnd entered Into business for himself
While here. Mr. Tucker was with the
Wlldcrs and was very close to 8. O
Wilder whom Mi. Tucker now regards
as one of the most far seeing men In
the Islands at that time. In conversa
tlon with n lliillctln reporter yesterday,
Mr. Tucker spoke as follows:
"Most of tho great changes apparent
here now, seem to be In line with tho
gient profile's made by tho town and
Islands In get eral. Some changes and
Improvements seem to be of mush
room growth. Where, heretofore. Ho
nolulii was the principal port of tho
luhuds. through which all business was
done, there are now other ports.
"The old time customs are changed
Where, formerly, Honolulu was ns ono
gre.it liimlly in which ever) one who
was respectable was ns good ns any
hod) else, now, there ale grf.it tl.tsi
distinctions and man) Ftr.uigcrx Thn
ton n Is growing to be like a big city
where nclghbiiis do not Know each
"In the old tlnus, when the King.
Sam Wilder. Parker or any of tho big
people save a luau or larty, evcr)on
went. Strangers lomlng to town were
known as soon ns they unlved und
each one knew each other. Now, tho
majority of people her? seem to be new
"When I was first here, the Island
steamers consisted of the old KJIauea
and the I. Ikelike, tho latter built to
take the former's pltice. When S. O
Wilder talked steamer for the lnter-(
Island trade, he was roundly ridiculed
by those who claimed thnt here where
the trade winds blew nine months out
of the )enr, steam would be an epen
slvc nnd worthless luxury.
On the floor of the Legislature ho
was laughed nt when hu attempted to
get a subsidy for the building and
maintenance of a steamer Schooners
were the thing. Now with the tre
mentions Inter-Island trafllc, the fore
tight of Wilder Is acknowledged and,
where one steamer was formerly suffi
cient for the trade now, with nbout
twenty, there Is room for more.
"The city has advanced materially In
business houses nnd methods. The only
thing It Is backward In is the street ear
system. There Is no street railway that
deserves the name and the difficulty of
trafllc Is bound to keep the clt) back.
A man living nny distance out of town
has no decent means of reaching bis
home except In a hack. A rapid tran
sit 8) stem needs to bo Installed and
when Installed, to be run In the Inter
ests of the community nnd not entire
ly for the owners. The present means
of transportation In street tars is n dis
grace to any civilized community nnd
no other city the size of Jlonolulu In
the United States would tolerate It.
"The Honolulu water sybtem Is good
nnd well mnnaged nnd )our Honolulu
lion Works are a cicdlt to the town
nnd a monument to th men who have
been Instrumental In blinking the con
cern to Its present llnktandnid
"Thcic Is not a plant In the United
States of the size of the Honolulu lion
Works that 1b superior to the local
"There Is no question about the ne il
of the Introduction of municipalities In
this Territory This modo of govern
ment Is the natural one under Ameri
can law Tho reins of government
should bo In tho handf. of municipal
officers and Honolulu should bo con
(tolled like other cities of Its size ou
"In tho time I have been awn), there
teems to have been a Lieat change in
tho way money Is spent. WIiph I was
hero before, ever) ono had money It
counted for very little mid was lavish
ly Bpcnt While the values have great
ly Increased and somo largo fortunes
havo been made, tho general public
does not appear to havo money to
Hpcnd ns In former years.
"When tho Nicaragua canal Is
through nnd the cable laid, Honolulu
will enter In upon an cm of prosperity
llttlo dreamed of by people here now.
I think that tho city will moro than
double In Importance and population.
"Fiom Its situation, Honolulu with
cable connections, will be tho port of
rail of the Pacific. Uelng In the direct
track of commerce It will necessarily
exert a greater Influence ns time goes
on nnd trnns-Parlflc commerce grows.
"As tho port of call, Honolulu must
make Improvements In her harbor to
Accommodate the great steimcrs thnt
are now being built. In the near fu
ture, the average Pacllc freighter will
be larger than any class of steamer
"This Is true because where, on the
Atlantic but 3300 miles of distance
arc to be covered In the Pacific, more
than twice that distance has to be gone
over from the Pacific coast to Asia and
our new possessions. To make up ag
gregate earnings. It will be necessary
for the Pacific steamers to be of greater
tonnage and earning capacity than
those In use on the Atlantic. In my
opinion the next twen'y-flvc )cnrs will
see the largest steamers In the wond
pl)lng between ports In the Pacific.
"The harbor here will have to be en
larged nnd the ehnnnel straightened
nnd deepened As nn annex. Knllhl
harbor must be Jolncd'lo the Honolulu
harbor or else the principal port will
turn out to be Pearl Harbor. The ai
commodatlons nt present offeilng, are
absolutely Inadequate; consequents
the changes to meet the demand must
be nudo before the city can feel tho
benefit which change is bound to
The present mnrlnc railway has
passed Its usefulness as a dry dock for
this port nnd there will have to be a
dry dock capable of handling the groat
vessels to come here. If a dry dock of
sumdent capacity should be built here,
vessels would be more than pleased
to come here for repairs and clcanlrg
purposes. The climate here enables a
vessel to be cleaned and to dry as well
by night as by day, preventing the cold
sweat from accumulating on the es
eels ns It docs In cold climates.
"Taking It all In nil, there has been
a great change here nnd. In my opln
Ion, the prosperity of the Territory Is
Just beginning. There Is one thing
more I want to say and that Is that you
newspaper fellows deserve nil the
credit In the world for the papers you
get out. Considering the limited news
nrea here. It Is a m)stery to me how
)ou do It."
WITH THE 8PORT8.
The late Oahu-Kumehameha track
meet seems to have ndded new zest to
sport In town. Some of the old crams
arc now tnlklng of forming nn athletic
