Honolulu has been so many times
misled by Indications of the volcano
about to break out that It will take a
good sized river of fire to convince
citizens of good faith on the part of
Madame I'ele. The country needs mon
ey and It v, mild be most appropriate fo
the volcano to produce an exhibition
that will odd to the tourist list.
An adjournment of Congress almost
Invariably Is followed by a general ad
vance all along the line In Industrial
securities. It Is to be hoped Hawaii
can follow the good American' ex
amnio after the adjourning of the
Legislature, notwithstanding the dim
culty of making progress when there is
no financial power In the Territorial
Governor Allen of Porto Rico having
become tired of his Job has resigned,
Hut Governor Allen will turn over to
his successor an Island domain success
fully nianaMd. the people contented
and prosperity spreading Its bounty
among a people hitherto pinched by
starvation. Comparison with results
in Hawaii indicates that American
government makes Its greatest success
In new possessions when a new outllt
U furnished in olllclal life.
Carpet baggers by the steamship load
aro steadily wending thilr way to
the Philippines. And under the In
fluence of these despised carpet baggers
this new American potsesslon is fast
working Its wuy out of chaos Into a
higher degree of prosperity and con
tentment than it has known for years,
Can it be that the carpet bagger Is
such a dangerous Individual to the
peace of a country as many of our good
friends would have us believe.
The rulings of Judge Estee indicate
that In the Federal District Court Am
erlcan.law reads the same in Hawaii
that lt'does In any other portion of the
United States. Judge Estee should
take notice that according to the Su
preme' Court of Hawaii and the die
tates of Hawaiian officials this is all
wrong. Tho public need not anticipate
however, that the opinions of Judge
Estee- will change under the in
fluence of Hawaii's transition periddod
fluence of Hawaii's transition period
Now that the Legislature Is about to
adjourn the time is ripe to lay aside
political differences and unite for the
progress of the Territory in all lines
of public welfare. Having an empty
treasury to work on will the Acting
Governor kindly inform the people
which end to begin at. It appears that
ways and means are important factors
in carrying out the public spirited ef
fort of citizens and as the President
has failed to respond by the "next
steamer," the problem seems to be up
to the Executive to solve
A Pennsylvania legislator offered a
tribute to freak legislation by the pro
posal of a measure requiring that men
who do not marry until after they are
40 years of age shall pay a license fee
of 1100, the money obtained from this
source to go towards the support of a
homo for old ladles who never had a
chance to marry. In spite of this pro
posal, neither the Governor nor Acting
Governor of Pennsylvania forwarded
any protest to the President, nor Is
there known to be any plan.cn. foot to
restrict tbo franchise of Pennsylvania
The Federal Government has at
tempted to forestall the boom rush for
new lands by requiring applicants to
draw for the rights of selection. This.
however, bids fair, to prove; a failure
since there Is an Immense amount of
litigation (promised as the result of
opening up new Indian Territory lands
on this basis. It seems Impossible to
overcome the human greed to obtain
something for nothing. The new set
tlers! acting under the excitement of
the rush arc spending more money to
tight their cases in court to obtain vlr
gin lands than It would cost them to
become owners of a well stocked farm
in tho east.
The action of the Health Doard in
appointing a resident physician for the
Insane Asylum cannot be regarded as
In any sense reflecting upon the ability
or integrity of the physicians who have
heretofore had charge of the Instltu
tlon and at the same time carried on
u largo private practice. The Hoard
would be subject to Just criticism
should It continue the old policy of
administration when It sought an ap
propriation tsvra the Legislature with
tho tacit promise that the resident
physician plan would be followed. It
Is hurdly reomnable to expect that
either Dr. Herbert or Dr. Walters
would give up their largo private prac.
tlto In order to devote their attention
to labor that would hardly give them
sulllclent return to pay for horse feed.
The plan proposed by the Board is in
line with the system followed by near
ly all if not all similar Institutions
throughout the States.
ANARCHY NOT IN BIGHT,
The arduous effort of the biased At
torney General to depict the horrors
of Jail delivery resulting from Judge
Gear's decision on the constitutionality
of majority crdlcta during the "trna-
eltlon period" Is nothing If not a re
flection upon the course of officials dur
ing that period which has been laid to
rest by the Supreme Court of the Unit
Tho "transition period" was a crca-
tureof expedlents.nothlng more or less.
The Hawaiian courts went on Incar
cerating men convicted by majority,
verdicts for no other reason'tnan the
fear to face the'. muilci to accept the
annexation and Jhe New-lands' Resolu
tion in a courageous lorcciui -spiru.
They sought to whip the American
constitution devil around a stump
offering no other apology for their acts
than the cry that the manly, forceful
courso woujd result In anarchy. Th
fact that the men illegally held were
pot convicted by a unanimous Jury
verdict, mandatory under the consti
tution, would suggest that under prop
er administration of the law they
would have been released. This con
clusion must be reached unless the
Attorney General Is ready to take tho
position that the Jury verdict would
have been unanimous had the prose
cution called for It Ily accepting this
horn of the dilemma Mr. Dole puts the
Juries of the transition Republic In a
decidedly peculiar light
Already three men havo been re
leased because they were by the tran
sition government deprived of their
rights under the constitution. The
anarchy promised by tho Attorney
General nnd the Supreme Court of Ha
waii is not in sight. Business seems to
go on about the same and life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness has not
undergone a material change. The ex
citement In the community at large Is
much less apparent than that following
some of the nolle prosenuls entered by
the Attorney General. In cases coming
before the Circuit Courts.
The atnount'oMltigatlon Involved Is
of small moment, when It is considered
that the liberty of a citizen Is at stako
his rights under the law, the adminis
tration, ofJustice In tho place of Jus
tice. "American principles tench us that
the rights of the citizen, however low
his station In life. Is the foundation of
the Great Republic. Having reached
the point wheie it 'can render justlco
to a human being though he bo charg
ed with the crlmo of murder Hawaii
has obtained a standard which from
th comments of the oflllcal press Is to
he considered as comcthlng new In tho
government of the llnwallan Islands.
The "biased" Attorney General In
fast reaching the position of a standing
Joke. Ever onward and upward soar

ESTATE OUTOF DEBT
The ejectment suit of Kaplolani Es
tate vs. Kaneohe Ranch Co. occupies
most of the time in the Circuit Court.
Witnesses and maps and, records were
examined this forenoon In great va
riety. In the suit of William A. Hall vs. C.
Wlnan, motion to set day for trial has
been filed by Atkinson & Judd, attor
neys for plaintiff.
Robertson ft Wilder, attorneys for
the defendant in the case of Chas. u.
Wilson vs. Lllluokalanl, have filed no
tice of motion for a decree dismissing
the case according to order of tho Su
preme Court. In the same case, A.
Lewis, Jr., attorney for plaintiff, flics
a motion for leave to file an amended
Discontinuance has been filed by
Mary H. Atcherly ct al. In the eject
ment suit against tho Kaplolani Es
tate. In the estate ot James Woods the
report of Henry Smith, master In the
seventeenth annual account of the trus
tees was confirmed today by Judge
Gear. The report says: "By the terms
of the will, this trust should terminate

youngest child becomes of age. At
that time the executors Intend to apply
for their discharge, to close administra

WH4T IS THE lATIER
Will THE JAPANESE
For the past two days, a Japanese,
from down the road who has been rid-'
Ihg .back and, forth between Walalua
and vtow;n, has attracted the attention
ot passenger and conductors. From
his appearance, he Is well to do but
from bis actions, he can hardly be well.
, Tho Japanese .In; question has been
in thehablt of boarding the train and
riding back and forth between the
places mentioned without moving from
his seat. Indeed, one of the conductors
states that tho only movement he
makes Is when he presents his ticket.
During the remainder of the time, he
limply, sits and stares out of the win
dow, never offering io look one way or
the other. A statute could not be mora
.' The Japanese never falls to show his
ticket when he has one and, when not,
he 'produces the exact amount neces
sary to pay for his trip.
JAPANESE WIZARD TEN ICHI.
Prof, S. Ten Ichl, the famous Japan
ese wizard who was accidentally left
behind by the Doric last week, gave
an entertainment in a tent at the Ja
panese Primary School, Nuuanu street,
last evening, under the auspices of the
Japanese Benevolent Society'. Mrs. K.
IrhSitishl, wife of the manager of the
Yokohama Specie Bank, bad tbo ar
rangements In charge. She was as
sisted by other prominent Japanese
ladles. Consul and Mrs. Mlkl Saito
and A..party of friends were among
mose present. i
The professor's performance wuf
most creditable, notwithstanding the
fact that his paraphernalia went on in
the Doric. The entettalnment lasted
until nearly 11 o'clock.
Prof, Ten Ichl means to tour ttw
Malpland and then proceed to Europe
' LOJKEO FOR A DOG.
Japanese Officer Toma went down
the road to Alea yesterday In search of
a bull dog belonging to J. H. Walger
who complained at tho polKe station.
It Is supposed that some Japanese
stole tho dog and took It down tin
road. Toma found an animal that ans
wered very well the description given
him but the gender was wrong and so
tho officer was forced to return dogless
While Toma was down the road he
served subpoenas on Tukuda, Naka
mura. Cho and Jas. A. Low, as wit
