Can Thurston or any ono of tho con-
tempt lawyers or the thirty-seven
members of tho Bar Association show
'cause? why Judge Hanlngton should
not be fired out of office? Humphreys
dldvpractlcally the same thing ns Har
rington. He refused to allow his court
to be Insulted.
Have the men who honestly opposo
a special session ot the Legislature to
provide revenue stopped to consider
how the public works already In
existence will fare -In event of failure
to provide revenue?
The danger of heavy financial loss
In event of the money not being forth
coming to speedily complete the sewer
sjstem has already bscn plainly dem
onstrated by department officers.
Thousands of dullars will be wasted,
cast to the winds It this work is not
r J 'rlcd on within comparatively few
weeks. The Superintendent of Pub
lic Works turns to the Treasurer for
the tiecssary $17,000. It Is not to be
had. Will the men who oppose the
special session produce the much need
ed funds without security? They have
thus far failed to do It, but nsk the
Superintendent of Public Works to
pledge his private credit. What tjlght
has any taxpayer to request any pub
lic servant to pledge his credit for
public work? The goernmcntof this
Territory Is not a private enterprise.
Take the ever present condition of
Honolulu streets. The main avenues
of the city are little better than coun
try roads. Citizens demand Improve
ment. There Is no money to pay fo
It and the Lrxcts, become steadily
worse. There Is no money for new
construction, no money tor repairs, and
the present income of the Territory
promises no funds for this purpose for
a full two years.
Every day's delay In repairing these
streets means an additional expense
on that sweet day In the distant future,
supposedly two ears hence, when an
other Legislature will appropriate. At
that time whenecr It comes, the
streets will be so badly worn, dractl
cally destrojed, that complete recon
struction will be necessary. It Is the
same pioposltlon that every business
man faces in any private enterprise.
Delays In making repairs cause more
expense finally than the first cost of
What Is true of the public work hero
In Honolulu holds good In every dis
trict of the Territory. Timely repair
will save thousands of dollars to the
Uxpacrs. l'allurc to repair means ad
ditional thousands to be paid out of
the taxpayers' pockets.
The demand for a special session to
provide revenue, to tte money fw
the taxpayers, Is not partisan, nut
selfish, except as partisanship Is selfish
of the best Interests of the taxpaylng
The fear Is expressed that no one
knows what the Legislature will do
and the charge made that It will U
more damago than good by starting off
on measures to which attention Is not
directed In the Governor's cull. Has
the Governor or Acting Governor made
any endcnor whatever to determine
what the Legislature will do? Has tho
Governor or Acting Governor con
ferred with members cf the Legisla
ture Irrespective of party? Or does
the double headed Chief Executive
form Its opinions In some quiet hack
room starting out on the basis that
the Legislature is an aggregation of
thieves and hobos unworthy the conn
scls of the Chief Executive?
The Chief Executive may express Its
want of confidence In the Legislature,
the official organs may mouth all tho
charges they can lay their tongues to,
they cannot get aw.iy from the fact
of the existence of Ji forceful demand
throughout the length and breadth of
this Territory that the business of the
Islands shall not be checked, that rcvp
nue shall be provided, and that the
Legislature be called on to provide It.
Representative Emmeluth's rcsolu
tlon to enrry o'ut Alexander Young's
plan for a hospital for Incurables ought
not to meet with any opposition In the
rcspectlvo legislative houses. Unfor
tunately It will be more (K ult for
the Territory, In its present flnauchl
state, to raise $20,000 than for Mr.
Young to produce his $100,000 share.
There lb a fond hope, however, that
the treasury will not always be bank
rupt and tho Territory will bo able to
keep paco with public spirited citizens.
Some of our good citizens seem to
think they know all thero Is to b
known about the proper conduct of
government und are quick to charge
any ono differing from them with be
ing prompted by tho basest motives.
Yet neither religious history nor an?
any other history teaches us that thn
creator delegated all the Integrity of
purpose In mankind to any select man
oi men. It would 'be remarkable Id
deed should Hawaii succeed In upset
ting all theso old teachings.
Senator Achl's concurrent resolution
seeking Federal assistance In the pay
ment of the flro claims follows out the
platform declaration of the Republican
party at the last election. ThoJJnlted
States Congress that has rendered as
sistance to Porto Rico through tho
revenues collected In that Island ought
not to refuse the same favor to Hawaii,
It would appear from recent letters
from Washington that the "biased-' At
torncy General Is receiving the atten
tion from tho Federal Department of
Justice, that Thurston Eought to havo
turned on Humphreys. This doubtless
scemti strange to Thurston but It Is
not unexpected by fulrralnded citizens.
Fujlhara has furnished Hllo with a
scries of sensations that ought to en
title him to a monument for relieving
tho monotony of llje. Should the law
finally be able 'to take Its course, thn
chief mourners will be the nev'er-iileep
Jailors whose jobs the convicted man
ruthlessly placed lu jeopardy.
Energetic citizens of Eastern towns
havo given a practical demonstration
that mosquitoes can h wiped out, If
tho people only make concerted war on
the pest. Hawaii has only to go to
work with the same eneigy to accom
plish n similar rtsrilt.
Thurston will take notice that thn
Supremo Court today handed down
two decisions affirming tho opinions at
Judge Humphreys. Everi Judged by
Thurston's friends It would appear that
Humphreys Is a Just judge.

Fairfield, Conn., Juno 22. This town
has a mosquito plague that Is making
life unbcarablo for the many Now
Yorkers who come here to rest and re
cuperate during the rummer, nnd for
the thousands of townspeople who arc
hero tho year 'round. They tell all
sorts of stories about the Industrious
Qualities of this breed of mosquito.
Most of these yarns one would not
question so very much, nfter spending
a night or two In parts of the village,
where tho mosquito Is particularly vo
racious. For fifteen years or more the towns
people every summer have had this
question brought bomo to them by tho
mosquito: How can we get rid ot tho
nuisance? About all tho response that
came was tho purchase of more screen
netting or an extra bottle or two of
liquid camphor to rub over the spots
where the mosquito had landed.
Strancg to say, what was first feared
when the reports of the mosquito pest
wcro sent out, namely, that tho town
would be shunned by the summer tour
ist, has not happened. All the summer
people come here Just na of old.
But this year a baud of public-
spirited and lung suffering nnd patient
citizens decided that If fifteen years of
annual agitation of tho question cf
eradicating tho evil wasn't warning
cueugh for the mojqulto, material
steps should be taken to put the pest
out of existence. The town has a vil
lage Improvement society nnd this or
ganization determined, to get after tho
mosquito In dead earnest
This decision was perhaps hastened
by the fact that this year the mos
quitoes started In business earlier by
a collide of weeks than ever before and
that their bite appeared to havo mor
sting to it than formerly. It was de
rided to Invito tho most expert mos
quito annlhllatur In this part of Now
Lugland to come to town at once and
begin his deadly work. Dr. W.'II.
Donaldson, one of the leading physi
cians of Fairfield, presided at tho
meeting at which this decision was
taken, In the nbbcncc of the society's
president. Bcnjamtu Bctts. Tho secre
tary of the meeting was the Rev. A. E.
Bccman ot the Episcopal church of
Fairfield, one of the ifiost even temper
ed gentleman In all Fnlrficld county,
but who has buffered so much from
mosquito bites that ho has joined
heartily In the war of extermination.
A Mr, tlopson, who will have a
monument erected to commenforate
his good works If half of what ho
promised comes true, told the Improve
ment Society that with $1000 for a
dtarter ho would banish SO per cent
of the mosquitoes this season. He has
been killing mosquitoes fur twenty
cars. It Is a profession with him.
Ills guarantee to the suffering Fairfield
people w-as his record as head ex
terminator In neighboring localities.
He made a speech to that meeting
which 'within twenty-four hours
brought $&00 to n subscription list for
money to aid In killing mosquitoes In
Hopson's knowledge of tho mos
quito, ns his talk to the society Indi
cated, has been gained by years ot bat
tle against this pest along tho shore
front In Fnlrfield county. Ho knows
where the insects go lo sleep for the
long winter, where they havo their In
cubators that hatch out millions of thn
tormentors In a night, and he can put
his finger right on their breeding dls'
trlcts. Ills campaigns ngnlnst the mos
quito In Stratford have been so sue-
cessful that the people of that place
revere his name. They havo an occa
sional delegation of mosquitoes there
on a visit unco in a great while, but the
community Is practically freo from
Tho Rev. Mr. Beeman explained
how Hop.son will go to woik to rid
Fairfield ot tho pest. He said:
"It Is proposed to use kerosene oil on
the waters of the stagnant pools here
abouts and on the meadow lands be
tween the village and tho shore front,
which seem to be tho breeding spot
tor tho mosquito. According to Mr.
Hopson's explanation to the meeting,
the eggs of tho mosquito hand down
right under the surface of stagnant.
blugglsh water. Then when the mos
quito Is hatched into exlstenco tho
head or bill just comes up over tho
water's surface. Pouring keroscno till
over tho surface of such a hatchery
or mosquitoes Instantly kills the mos
quito. This application1 of kcroseno
must be mado once In ten days, so Mr.
llopson stated. Ho also said that the
averago ago of tho mosquito was about
two weeks, He says that tho first sea
son with a plentiful use of kerosene
oil, he will get rid of SO per cent of
the mosquitoes In this neighborhood.
In tho second year he will dlsposo of
85 per cent.
