Whether destruction of forests con
stitutes vandalism depends entirely on
what Is to be done with the land after
the forest Is cleared.
Affidavit Pearson ought to wrlto a
book on the tlmo when ho "done
politics" with that horrid man Lewis
who tried to corrupt him.
Land owners about Pearl Harbor arc
learning. If they did not know before,
that Uncle Sam does not pay high
prices for land when It Is needed for
the public service.
Not the least of the lessons taught by
tho Grand Jury Is that public officers
canot take up tho slander nnd gossip of
Irresponsible or malicious persons
without being called to account.
That minority report on tho status
of Secretary Cooper ns Acting Gover
nor seems to be among tho legal phases
of the situation born to blush unseen.
Can It be possible the Governor's
resignation Is on Its way to Washing
ton. It Is to bo hoped th9 new "system"
Adopted by tho House In fixing appro
priation Items will be maintained till
' the 1)111 Is finished. The extra session
tints' far has witnessed a rTon-partisan
plan of each one for himself that Is pro
ductive of new Ideas hut few results.

Thurston's organ says Governor Dole
must bear his share jf tho blame. It's
not tho first time Thurston tried to
Lrnwl through a hole at the cxpenso
of one towards whom he has hitherto
posed as n friend. A former United
Press correspondent of Washington has
pleasant memories along this line.
Tho nnounccment through tho Pro
tective League that secret agents of the
United States arc at work on tho Iwllol
proposition Indicates that the Grand
Jury charges made by Judge, Estee and
Judgo Humphreys aro viewed In Fed
eral circles as something moro Import
ant than moral essays to bo treated
with as much Indifference as a paper
read before tho Social Sclcnco Club.
Activity of San Francisco secret
service agents In enforcing tho law
ngalnst mutilation of coin will put an
end to the wearing of Hawaiian coin
belts for a season. It Is not likely to
detract from tho popularity of the fad,
however, which can be allowed full
sway when the Federal Government
eventually calls In tho Hawaiian coin.
The tlmo will como when this class of
souvenirs will have a value thai will
cast rare postago stamps In the shade,
It Is understood tho Acting Gover
nor Is haggling with tho Agricultural
Department over tho transfer of public
land which might be utcd for a public
park. Land tor public parks should bo
protected even It It Is an afterthought
apparently discovered to lmpedo n
Federal department. It is a matter of
record that tho Hawaiian government
of which the Governor and Acting
Governor were members, treated tho
public park Idea with fupremo Indiffer
ence when It transferred one of tho
finest pieces of property on Tantalus
to W. It. Castle.
Those petitions which the Advertiser
seeks to discredit are causing tho
Thurstonlan brigands an Immense
amount of worry, rheso documents
will cause tho brigands to lay awako
nights before tho fight Is finished. The
same kind of remarks were made re
garding tho popular petitions endors
ing George D. Gear for tho Second
Judgeship. Even tho honorable tho
Almighty S. M. Ballou returning from
the capital Informed his cohorts thnt
Oenr would not bo appointed; tho pow
er against blm was to strong. This
power consisted of tha law firms thnt

Gear was popular support. This same
power stands staunchly behind Judge
Humphreys. In American Territories,

z partment of Public Works Is practi
cally bound hnnd and foot by tho
ehortage of money which can only ho
supplied through legislative enact

session can appropriate but these ap
propriations will encounter tho empty
treasury. Tho only remedy Is a call
from the chief executive for n special
session cf the Legislature to pass a
revenue and bond measure. This ne
cessity has been clearly set forth by
tho Territorial Treasurer. It Is up to
the Governor or whoever may occupy
his office to act. And there. Is but one
line of action that will secure, to Hllo

Territory nt largo the continued prog

Senators Brown and Uussel are ob

where it does not hold a grudge ngalnst

Representative Mossman states a
truth when he says It Is the office, not

The offices, however, rhould carry tho
salaries appropriate to tho duties to bo

economy, Tho compromise figure of
$1000 a year for the heads of depart
ments Is satisfactory, except that It is
nonsense to place the Department of
Public Instruction on the same piano
as tho Department of Public Works.
VANDALS AND TANTALU8.
Citizens who nre worrying over what
the Advertiser calls vandalism and
consists of the cutting down of Tan
talus forests by the Department of
Agriculture will do well to bear In
mind this firmly established fact: Tin
United States Department of Agricul
ture has4 never tnken over nny land,
tallow, forest or desert, In nny town,
county, Stnto or Territory which It has
not Improved, turned to 'good purpose
and secured therefrom results of last
ing benefit to tho development of all
lines of agricultural 'Industry nnd ar
tistic landccnpo gardening.
What tho Department of Agriculture
has done In every other portion of tho
American I'nlon It Intends to do and
will do for Hawaii. Tiihonc3t citizen
H reminded that he ought not to shout
before he Is hit, while the aggregation
of strait kings who have, antagonized
every Federal department that has es-
tnbllshcd a branch In this Territory nro
free to gain what beneflt they may
from the purity of their motives as
expressed by their public acts,
Gauged by the Immediate result tho
destruction of tho Tantalus forest docs
make a bad Impression on the thought
less mind or thoso that havo no con
fidence in or sympathy with Federal
department work. If the Agricultural
department Intended to cut off the for
ests to mako money out of the wood
nnd then allow the turned land to
grow up with a tangle of Hllo grass
and lantnna, tho people would Indeed
havo good reason for serious com
plaint and harsh criticism. As a matter
of fact the department Is not cutting
the forests for the price of the wood; It
does not Intend nor vlll It allow the
Tantalus heights to run to weeds or be
a blot on the scenery of the city. Tho
department does lntoid to dcvclope
this land along new lines, to replnco
the forest with productive trees, plants
and shrubs, to make tills land yield a
return that will not only satisfy tho
artistic eye for beauty of surroundings
but will nlso conservo the material wel
fare of every citizen and a broader de
velopment of Territorial Industries.
Using the same text that Is now be
ing drawn upon for criticism of Direc
tor Jnred Smith's activities, the pcoplo
should rise In their wrath against tho
destruction of the Olaa forests along
the lino of tho Volcano road. The vlr
gin tropical tangle has been, ono of tho
tourist attractions played-, upon for
oars. The Volcano road was one ot
tho few places whero tropical beauty
could bo viewed from tho pleasant
vantago point of an easy carrlago road.
Docs tho public revolt against tho
transformation of tho forf-st Junglo Into
productive fields. Is the hand ot Indus
try branded as the vandal hand? Not
much, except by a few malcontents.
It Is true the Hawaiian government
spent quantities of money In creating
the Tantalus forest and has watched
Its growth with Jealous care. It Is
also true that tho Hawaiian govern
ment turned over one of tho best builds
Ing sites of tho mountain to a private
individual, notwithstanding tho Board
of Agrlculturo had been guarding thatj
special plot ot ground and planting It
with trees and shrubs with n view to
Its becoming a public park.
As between the records of tho United
States Government and (he record of
the Hawaiian government for protect
ing public property from the vandal
and tho land grabber, the Federal De
partment of Agriculture will not suffei
under the searchlight ot comparison.
Tho Bulletin would suggest that tho
peoplo give Jared Smith sufficient time
to prove himself before they Join tho
ranks of tho critics, captious and other
wise. If Mr. Smith does not secure
better returns from tho Tantalus lands
than hat ever been auggested under
Hawaiian government management he
will fall to do what every representa
tive of his department has dono wher
ever detailed to carry out tho plans of
tho Department of Agriculture.
