Treasurer Wright's earnest endeavor

count they are oblige! to pn) for tho

Tho Hulletln has received n com

The anti-imperial pi ess of tho na
tion Is Indulging In various kinds of
sad reflection becuuso llguies show
thut tho American soldier costs nioie
than tho soldier of imy other nation on
earth except the former soldiers of
tho "beBt government on cut Hi." The
American soldier Is the most expensive
because he Is tho best cured fur and
receives better pay, Tho section of
tho press now bewailing tho expense
is the samo which during the waf
dwelt upon tho ill ti eminent of our
suldlors' poor food, clothing, etc. Com
parisons only go tn show that them Is
h pessimistic branch determined uot tv

Hawaii's friends In Congress may al
vva)s bank on it that thu people of this

willing to leave to th good Judgment
of Congressional und Senatoi lal lead
ers who me best uhle to ele.teimino

lute hour tonight nothing has
been lecolved fiom Osceola except
a brief message fiom a staff col
li spondent of tho Commercial
Appeal, which said the leports uf
tumble had been great 1) exaggei
altd and that thu town was quiet
at i o'clock. Acceudlug to thu
report received In a lound-nbout
way in the da), the court house
was bairicacled and piactlcall)
the whole town was under arms.
It was said that only the active
efforts of peaceably disposed citi
zens had prevented mi outbreak
and that an apical was to be mudu
to (Jovcrnor Davis to put tho
county under martial law.

To the rulers of Hawaii who held their
oints by virtue of federal authority,
the transition period meant a period
of lawlessness In faet, when they could
Ignore eo many of the lawn of the
United States as might stand In the
wny of their private ends. Under this
so-called period, to confine oursehca
the matter of jury trials for those
accufnl of public offenses, some who
had offended these arbiters of Hawa
iian destiny were Imprisoned, as they
then claimed, and ns Is now manifest,
without due process of law, and lime
alreadj pencil their time. Others who
were ne) doubt guilty were similarly
convicted and some of these now go
free, however guilty they mny hac
been. Yet the fact that under the
recent Judicial ruling the guilty may
escape, has no bearing on the case In
