A decrease of court martial In tho
United States army by (WO during iho
past e.ir will doubtless be used liy
advocates nnd opponents of the army
canteen to prove all sides of the iiuea
tlon. Tho duty of the government Is to
strengthen the Territorial credit, yet
It Is today n debtor of the hanks and
the Oowrnor refuses to glvo any as
surance that he will call on the Legis
lature to supply necessary funds.
Now they talk of Admiral Schley
being put forward by the Democrats
rm a candidate for the Presidency In
liiOt. Having Dewey's experience as
n guide, Schley will show discretion by
resting tatlsfled with his present lau
rels. Of all false promises that eer struck
the Territory, the Income tax Is th
worst. It not only falls In Its supposed
province ns an equitable tax measure,
hut at the crnclal moment when th.
government Is sadly In need of funds. '
It falls to produce, the cash.
The man who skipped out of tlioLt.,,,,..!.. tJ,ln Its crasn. nnd refused
prison gang "because lie had a stomach exert tho cik.tr to reach out Its

mind some of the excuees now being)

"thlrly-seven." A poor excuso may be
