When the Athcrtlser has proved

Director Jarcd Smith makes a timely
suggestion when he points to Australia
as u market worthy of exploitation by
Haw all's coffee growers. The greatest
victory any Industry can win Is to
establish a ready market by reason
of the superior product it offers.
The Hawaii sugar refinery schema
Is all right, but what Interests Hawaii
particularly at this time Is a scheme
that will turn out a refined field labor
product. The man who will do It can
get all the money he wants and bo

The sporting fraternity would un
doubtcdly profit by a trial of strength
with a baseball team of thu California
league. In spite of many obstacles, the
present baseball season has proved a
success and every measure that serves
to keep up Interest In the national

The reiteration by the Advertiser
that "a serious charge" Is filed against
Judgo Humphreys at the Department
of Justice Is properly regarded by the
public ns an Item In the species of
blackmail for which the Thurston or
gan stands creator and sponsor. A
serious charge Indeed! And the cow

THE FIRST LEGISLATURE.
The first Legislature nf the Territory
of Hawaii that has finally reached the
point where It can adjourn without lay
has In many lespects t'cen tbo greatest
thing that ever happened. It bus been
great In the amount of tlmo consumed,
great In the contentions it has produc
ed, not Insignificant In the total money
It has cost. It has run u close second
to Diana of the Epheslani.
The succets or failure of this
Legislature and the reasons therefor de
rend entirely on. how jou look nt It.
Every citizen has had his opinion as
vailuiiB contentions have arisen, uud It
ir doubtful whether an) two haw fully
cigiced In their conclusions In attempt
ing to honestly render Justlco to both
fcliles un any matter tnat has come up
for discussion. In general all citizens
ngreo, however, that tho Legislature
has not been a complete success. This
conclusion Is endorsed by thu Legisla
ture Itself and if put to a vote no dis
senting volro would bo raised In thu
Leglslnturo or out of It
Cause of legislative failure, Is tho
dividing lino on which public opinion
gathers Itself Into opposition camps.
A unanimous opinion un this subject
is Impossible. Historians will disagree.
Citizens uud legislators at the present
tlmo are so tired of the long wrangle,
they are willing to agree to dlsugico
and let it go at that. Not till the next
elettlon will tho stoty of responsibili
ties be resurrected und depleted Jn
The people havo sought results, and
In attempting to secuio them have di
vided Into two general parties acting
along two ladlcally dllfercnt lines
those who consldcrsd the product
could bo obtained by working with thu
Leglslntum and ginutlng un honesty
of Intention, und those equally well
utlsfiid that nuthlng could bo obtain
ed except through sandbag tactics nnd
charging tho lcglBlatoia with all the
crimes of imbecility and corruption to
be found In the political category. The
ruling official element with Its friends
havo taken the latter course, while cltl-
ions believing thcmselvca to be mora
fair-minded and lees stilish of personal
Interests uidcavorcd to give the devil
his due and stood w Itii the element ad
vocating the first contention,
Dy leason of the urdor with which
both sides pursued the rancorous tenor
of their way, the advantageous results
arc wanting, except It be an advantage
to nil free citizens to learn by experi
ence that cooperation lc the only way
In which business, be It public or pri
vate can be successfully conducted
Granting that the Legislature has
been a failure the success of the execu
tive branch of the government has been
no less Ignominious.
This doer not mean u failure of popu
lar government. H.iv.mII has had much
less friction duilng tills Its settling
down period than has been cxperl
rnced In many Territories of the Main
land whose citizenship wns made up of
Americans born and bred. History
leaches that ever Territory has to
pass through lis rollv period. Ha
uall has not Immediately fulfilled the
hope of Its best friends ct Its politi
cal conditions are far from hopeless.
Its people are learning. Minority fac
tions that have hitherto ruled find they
cannot maintain power without votes.
Majorities have learned that American
government provides checks on too
radical or Inadvlsed action.
The result of this session of tli
legislature Just closed cannot be with
out marked benefits. It convinces
Executive power that it must ileal with
the people, it occupies no throne of
supreme power, It cannot be success
ful by attacking popular lepresenta
lives and refusing to credit them with
a degree of honesty. It must recognize
the right of the people to have the
This policy on the part of the Execu
tive has not been carried out during the
first session of the Legislature, It has
not been attempted. This theory of
American government had not been
committed to hc.ut at the Inception of
the Territory. Experience Is a teacher

1 In Its career, the Territory will the
more promptly reach the basis of busi
ness prosperity and political peace.

Now that the Legislature hag nil
Journed and Judge Humphreys Is away,
things wear a Sabbath like stillness,
and the erstwhile mar of the Adver

new linotype machine, making other
Improvements nnd getting out an

FISH ON A SPREE.
Reading, Pa., July 17. Thousands of
drunken fish In Maiden Creek today
afforded great amusement to hundreds
of people Vlong the banks of that
stream. The distillery and warehouse
nf Aaron Dunkle at Dcrkelcy was
burned, and two hundred barrels of
whisky were emptied Into the water.
Soon afterwnrd bass, carp, catfish, sun
fish and eels, floated on the surface.
Some were lively and kicking, while
others were stuplflcd. Tubs of fish
were captured before tbey got over
their spree, and returned to tho water.
"Jobstock is very lender hearted.
"Tender hearted? Well, say, that
man woudn't even strlko an average."
