What a noble conception It was ot
the fathers! The founding of this Gov
ernment NOT upon tlio will and Judg
ment of the FEW, but UPON THE
WILL. AND JUDGMENT AND CON.
SCIENCE OK THE MANY; a Govern
ment In which nil the people of every
State participate In a citizenship that Is
equal everywhere; equal citizenship In
equal States In n Union that has never
been equaled. Persldcnt McKlnley.
Hawaii s transition period was n
house built upon the s.uids, that served
a temporary purpose.
Some college professors and eastern
contemporaries arc seriously discussing
tho problem whether collcgn girls make
good wives. The Ideas brought out
nre highly Interesting, but after all Is
Mid they must fall hack to tho fact
that It all depends on the girl.
All the satisfaction the "transition
period" Judges get out of the Supreme
Court decision Is that they succeeded
In keeping Hawaii free from the lu
fluence ot the Constitution uutll the
Organic Act was passed. But what Is
now the status of men convicted by
Judging from the comment ot tho
Mainland papers thus far received, It Is
& lucky thing the flag decision of tho
Supremo Court was not secured
through a political alignment of tho
Justices. Such a decision would bare
sounded n death knell for tho dominant
party for a time at least.
The Spanish Claims Commission
finds itself In the position ot trying to
prove that the battleship Maine was
not destroyed by the Spanish nor by
their carelessness. Followers of tho
flag find un entirely new state of af
fairs after tho fracas has blown over
and they go to law to recover damages.
Dr. Sun has ever been the recipient
of Hawaii's best wishes In his endear
ors to rnlso China above Its present
standards of barbarism. If keeping
constantly at it will accomplish results,
this progressive revolutionist Is certain
to receive his reward before the 'men
after the high price set upon his head
Duties on Manila cigars will doubt
less be paid under protest from this
time on. The Importers will, Judging
from the Supreme Court decision, stand
& good chance of recovery. But the
question that the people want decided
Is whether they get the old time cheap
cigar, or the Importer gets all the coin
when the court decides In his favor
The resignations of SenMors Tillman
and McLauren brings en ono of the
prettiest political fights the, people have
been treated to In many years. When
two United States Senntors are ready
to risk their positions on a direct ap
peal to the people of their State, it Is
useless to hold that the Americana are
getting far distant from the origin
al principles of the fathers. '
The gentlemen who bellevo the
executive officers of Hawaii can do
what they please with the public lands
will do well to read the opinion of Land
Commissioner Hermann as given by
the Bulletin's Washington correspon
dent. As the President himself Is only
authorized to renew leases, the Gover
nor of Hawaii can hardly expect to be
upheld In continuing the customs of' tho
Hawaiian-Americans ought not to be
slow In taking up the opportunity of
fered under the civil service for posi
tions in Washington departments. Tho
, more men we can get In Washington to
becomo acquainted with American
methods, tho moro rapidly will our edu
cation In Americanism progress. Ono
of the first things Hawaii has to learn
lr that-even the President Is not a king
and there are no otllclal thrones In
the national capital though government
otneers may attempt to assume kingly
sway In the Territory. '
Land Commissioner Htrmnnn bo
lleves that he cannot visit Hawaii to
Investigate land matters without Con
gressional authorization. It Is at once
ppparent that from the standards set
by the local government Hermann
doesn't understand his business. Didn't
the Dole government send Commission
er Brown toWashlngton without legls
lattvo authorization? Doubtless. Her
mann has a "sundry "expense" fund at
his disposal. Let some of our chief
executives write to tho Commissioner
and tell him how It Is done.
The reports of tho sanitary Inspector
and the food Inspector are documents
which show that the Health Board un
derstands Its duty to the public. Deal
ing with tho source, surroundings and
character of leading articles of food.
the householder Is ablo to obtain pure
food from properly kept establish
ments. If he doesn't It Is his own fault
nnd If he persists In paying full price
for adulterated products ho can- only
be compared with tho city boy who, go
ing to the country for n vacation, wept
bitterly becauso he could not get nice
blue milk such as ho was accustomed
to at home.
Tho wisdom shown by Senator Brown
In his report upon the Attorney Gen
eral's bond opinion does not seem to bo
stable quantity. His proposal, fol
lowing the next day, lacks nil the quali
ties of good Judgment that tho previous
ono possessed. It would be the height
of foolishness for Hawaii to appeal to
Congress for a loan act, when it has a
Legislature to dispose- of this business.
The method proposed by Senator
Brown Is certain to stir up n Congres
sional discussion which will consume
suinclcnt tlmo to warrant public men
putting the measure aside for more Im
portant and pressing matters than the
publli works of a Territory. A bond
Issue xuthorlzed by tho Legislature
according to tho method set down In
tho Orginlc Act will without question
bo promptly sanctioned by Congress.
A specie 1 session ot tho Legislature to
provide revenue Is nn nbsolute neces
sity as has been very forcibly set forth
by tho Territorial treasurer. Tho execu
tive will serve the Interests of the
people by facing the situation fairly
and honestly. Any attempts at make
shifts on the part of either the execu
tive or legislative will create confu
sion worso confoundedi A special ses
sion for revenue and bonds must be
TUB LAND OWNERS
In calling attention to the private
holding of land bordering on Pearl
Harbor and the high price asked for It,
the Advertiser serves to draw public
attention to the kind (ecling towards
Uncle Sam that obtains mining Ha
waii's property holders.
It Is certainly n valuable exhibition
that Is presented. Hawaii gave tho
harbor to the United States and prop
erty holders appealed for a stronger
tic to bind us to the union of States,
that of complete ownership. The plea
was grnntcd. Now comes tho further
plea that Uncle Sam proceed with tho
good work, open Pearl Harbor, fortify
Pearl Harbor, develop this splendid
property that the Territory and tho
Nation may benefit by It. The theory inml a continuation of the present bull
appeals to our thoughtful government j mo ement, whkh'has been so long un
but on reaching the practical facts. It dcr wny pont l0 tho fact that nil sta
appeors that all tho land about this tittles Indicate prosperity throughout
splendid harbor is in the nanus or in-1
dlvldunls or corporations all of whom
are convinced of the high value of their
property and apparently equally posi
tive of Undo Sam's readiness as well as
known ability to pay a price.
The moral phases of this situation
may well bo passed without comment.
The conclusions arc too well marked
to require extensive elaboration.
These land owners about Pearl Har
bor may well stop to consider whether
they vt III not only defeat their own
purposes but lose for tho Territory nnd
for the Nation marked commercial and
naval advantages derived from the pos
clble development ot this harbor. So
far as the price placed upon this prop-1
erty is concerned, uncle bam win taKC,0U0 jor F011lu time past. They real
the land at his own price If he so dc
sires, tho right of eminent domain be
ing a privilege that has not been de
livered at the command of any "hold
t On the other hand It Is known that
Jiiore than one able and Influential
man In national counsels seriously
questions the advisability of proceed
ing with the development of Pearl Har
bor when Honolulu harbor Is capable
of extension and land It available that
will not have to be purchased. Should
tho Pearl Harbor pioject be abandoned
the retribution to tho land holders
might be considered Justified, but what
of tho Territory nnd the wider Interests
of the people?
Tho program of proper commercial ex
pansion Includes Pearl Heritor as u
very positive factor. Shall It be said
that tho very people who called for
American protection and ownership
have banded together to squeeze what
coin they can out of the beneficent
power that heeded their call? Shall It
be said that citizens of Hawaii defeat
ed tho development of Pearl Harbor by
demanding a price? .
Irrespective of tho bond Issue the spe
cial session Is an absolute necessity to
provldo revenue for current expenses of
the Immediate future.
CONTEMPT IN IOWA.
A prominent attorney of Iowa has
been summoned beforo the Supreme
Court of that State to show causo why
he Bhould not! be punished for con
tempt. Ordlnnrlly this Incident would
cxclto no Interest In Hawaii, but con
ditions have arisen by reason of tho
acts of somo local "not vindictive" at
torneys that glvo especial value to the
rights, privileges, liberties or llec-nto
granted attorneys practicing beforo the
The cause of the contempt proceed

a rehearing of n civil case. I-'or the

"With full realization, from long ex
perience, of the futility of efforts to
correct a Judicial wrong on rehearing,
wo fllo this petition because of a sense
of duty to our clients to make every
endeavor to exonerato them from ob
viously unrighteous judgment. Of
course If a horse. Is adjudicated to be

Inc. "What the profession finds fault with
Is tho discrimination. You who have
had any considerable experience at tho
bar know that country nttornoy3 and
others who do not belong to this class
are the ones whose ca3es nro disposed
"That tho Supremo Court disposed of
tho case In a perfunctory manner and
without reading tho argument of tho
appeallant Is obvious from tho fact that
the opinion entirely Ignores tho tenth
assignment of errors,
"Wo cited many authorities giving
excerpts to save the court the labor of
research necessary when extracts nre
not given to sustain our position. Hut
we have learned long ago that the
court never feels Indebted to attorneys
of our class for Industry and research
In presenting arguments while the pre

Concluding the application for re

ment: "Should Judicial lightning Hash

PROSPERITY STILL REIGNS.
As the smoke of the battle clears
away It appears thac the recent panic
on Wall street was thn retult of n war
among the giants of finance rather
than a forerunner of n long sustainnl
lump In the market duo to depression
In the general lines of trndl. Outside
the speculating ring of Wall street
the era of prosperity lick's true to its
course with mills running to full ca
pacity, workmen well oiupioyed and
tho farmer gaining a good ,iroflt trr
The New York Commercial said of
tho conditions a few weeks previous to
tho recent Hurry, that had all tho su
perficial marks ot wide spread panic:
"Stocks arc now held very largely by
tho public. The nim vdio were tho
big, traders in tho niarkft up to the
beginning of tho present advance are
now In largo measure out of stocks.
Few of them, In fact, held their securi
ties to anywhere near present prices. A
new clement Is in the Street, nnd n
good deal of the recent advance I
credited to their buying. Included
among those who have been tho bold
est of the operators are men who mado
fortunes out of the various steel nnd
Iron consolidations, mil who have
added to their wealth .by judicious
trading In stocks.
Thoso who predict higher prices
tno f0untry such as has never been
known before. For example, bai.it
clearings today reached a total of
5I0.937.1B5. which Is moro than $100,
000,000 In excess of tho record for any
previous day. Tho greatest .previous
record was on April IB, when fclenrlngi
were Jll.",241,223. In part the heavy
rleurlngs arc credited to tho acttvo
trading In stocks, buChyikers say tl'at
tho great growth In tho clearing honai
returns are due In largo p.trt to an
Inereaso In general busuun.
"As a result of the high prices at
which the stocks of many corpora
tions nro selling, bankers are scruti
nizing collateral deposited to secure
0i,ns moro carefully than they have
Izo that the stocks of many concerns
are selling abovo what they arc ac
tually worth, and simply take lb!
precaution In order to protert them
selves against a possible depression
"This Is nn old eustcm with lisflk
lng Institutions when Hocks nre sell
ing WrIi, nnd does not In this enso
Indicate that bankers anticipate seri
ous results from tho present wild wavo
of stock market speculation. Many
.bankers are demnndlng fewer Indus
trials, and then there nre others who
closely scrutinize high priced rallroul
stocks. All agree, however, that tno
Hnances of hto country nre on such a
sound basis that a stock market of n
panicky character Is out ot the ques
tion." This view ot tho situation taken by
New ,'York bunkers,, waa certainly
upheld In Wnll street's latest affair,
which after all appears to have been
little more than a bear raid nnd, a very
successful ono. It stands to reason
that a large amount of water will bo
squeezed out of the big industrial com
binations that have been the feature
of the past year, but whllo tho volume
of business throughout tho country
maintains Its present high figures, the
danger of widespread deprcBsIfin or
financial distress Is very remote.
