FRIDAY NOVKMUEll 22, 1901.
The season Is nigh when, according
to the tttuo-halloncd custom of out
people-, the President appoints a day
as the especial oicaslou lor prnlau and
tItfnkKEMnR to OOil.
'flits that'insgMiiK finds the people
still bowed with sorrow for tho
diath of a great and good President.
We mourn President McKlnley be
cause we so loed and honored lilm,
and tho manner of his death sltiuld
awaken In the breasts of our pernio
n keen anxiety for the country nm. nt
thu same time a resolute purpose nut
to bo driven by nuy calamity irom the
path or strung, orderly, popular lib
erty which as a nation we hate thui
far safely trod.
Yet in eplte of this gieat disaster.
It Is noerthcless truo that no people
on uirth have such uhundant came
for thanksgUIng ns we hae. Th
past year In particular has been oim
of peace and plenty. We have pros
pered In things material nnd hae
been able to work for our own uplift
ing In things Intellectual and spiritual.
t.it us remember tlyt, as much has
bien given us. much wm be expected
from us; and that true homages comes
from the hearts as well as iroui tho
lips, and shows Itself In deeds. Wo
inn best prove our thankfulness to
the Almighty by the way In which
on this earth and at this time each
of us does his duty to his fellow -men.
Now. theiefoie, I, Theodore Hoose
Telt, President of the Lulled States,
do hercbv designate as n day of gen
erul thanksgiving Thursday, tho 2.Sth
ol this present November, nnd do rec
ommend tho peoplo cense Irom their

By tho President.
John Hay. Secretary of Slate.
It is gratifying to hear that tho Gov
ernor Intends to Issue a Thanksgiving
proclamation. The late huur at whlib
It must now necessarily come naturally
raises the question whither our Chief
Executive has been In blown study
over what Hawaii has to be thankful
One of the curious exhibitions of our
national energy Is the utter failure to
maintain the position In shipping cir
cles which our great national com
inrree Justlflis. A leader In the woild's
trAde, the United States continues to
pay out good mill for the shipment
of Its goods In foreign bottoms.
Roosevelt's refusal to appoint a nun
who Jilted his best girl may be tnken
.is an unnecessary Interference In fa-
rally affairs, but It catrlcs a warning
to prospective offleo seekers that their
private career must bo above rsproach
If they expect to receive any favor?
from the present Federal adiulnlstrn
Refusal of the steel trust to tuke
puit lu the campaign for reciprocity
indicates that even tbe octopuses tan
agree to disagree. If some of these
big combinations of wealth and Indus
i.-y could see their way clear to engage
in a rough and tumble warfare over
reciprocity Hawaii could rest eusy, a-
sured of tho usual per cent per month
on her sugar stocks for two jears more.
There Is no reason lu the wide
world why men with money to loan
should advocate a special session of
tho Legislature to provide the Tend
tory with funds. It Is the worklugman
and small merchant who feels the
pinch and ns this class composes an
overwhelming majority, the erdlct at
the polls If piesent conditions are al
lowed to obtain can easily be fore
As the pooltlon of District Attorney
for thu local United States Couit Is on
the list of Wyoming Senatorial patron
age the chances are that Mr. Ualrd's
successor will como from the ranks of
Wjomltig's leading Inwyeis. If Mr.
Oalrd's marked ability and strength
of character are typical Wjomlng citi
zenship, tho people of Hawaii need
l.ave little fear of the hlph standing
of the man whom Senatois Warnn
and Clark may solect.
The extension of tbe Rapid Tianslt
line to l'alumu Is the greatest favor
residents in that section, of tho city
have received In jeuis. Coupled with
tho slow service of tho tramway sys
tem, tho peoplo huve had to put up
with streets that would dlsgiacn tho
poorest countiy town oil the map. The
men with sufllclent means lu own a
horse and cairfagn have had few ad
vautages over householders whoso
financial condition forced them to pa
tronize tho sticet railway ssteiu.
With the defeat of Tammauy Mall in
Oreater New York, David llenuott
Hill's political star of hope begins f)
Joom up more prominently In the hnrl
zmi Hill has always hud a xtionji
hold on the "up-Stute" Democrats and
Is the natural leader to whom the de
feated and disunited Democrats of Now
York city will turn, Gorman having
renewed his hold In Maryland, there
are constantly Increasing Indications
that the Democrats are steadily going
back to the old established lines and
Bryan and llryanlsm will soo-i be an
unpleasant memory of tbe past.
THtl RICH MAN'S BON,
A rich man's eon In the person of
Georgo E. Tllford ruado an exhibition
of himself tho other day In New York,
that may well be taken as a warning by
nenlthy fathers and also demonstrates
the folly If not degradation found Id
tho Boctal Btandlng established solely
Til lord's father began his business
life as a grocer's chore boy and died a
millionaire. The son Incurred his fa
tiler's displeasure by manning au
aclress and when tbe father died he left
the boy an annuity of fGOOO a jear and
a right to be burled in the fntnlly
vault, nothing more "in having or ex
pectation." A short time ago one of young Til
ford's crcdltots obtained a Judgment
against him for $556.41 unci asked the
trustees to pay tho Judgment out of the
(COCO annuity, Tllford objects, (dating
to the court that unless he Is allowed
the full JG000 his social standing will
bo seriously Impaired If not lost. In
tho course of his iiind,tlt this rich
man's on nnd gentleman of society
"All our frliids are persons of
.xcalth and of high social standing
mil we are comptllcd to spend mone
In entertaining the many friends who
entertain us. My friends and associates
of my life lime been persona of wealth
and high social standing. I am n
nienibels of many clubs. 1 hate abso
lutely no Income except the allowance
I recehe from my fathei's estate, nnd
(he same Is barely siilltclent to support
msetf nnd family,
"I hae received no technical or sci
entific education fitting me for any
business or profession, nnd should I
bo deprived of any portion of my In
come I will be plunged in debt anew."
It Is doubtful If Tllfoid or anyone
else can bring before the public a more
contemptible specimen of manhood
than this rich man's son styles himself
In hla statement before the court. Sur
rounded by ecry opportunity wealth
lould give In his )outh this man has
no menus of earning n livelihood and
ct possessed with less character than
a beggar In tbe streets his associates
are prisons of wealth and 'high social
Mnudlng." He is too weattny to work
nnd of such high t-oclal standing as to
forestall the possibility of being hon
rtt with tradesmen. And society still
accepts him within Its purportedly ex
clusive confines, assisting him to spend
his $6000 per nnd presumably posting
hlin In ttic clubs as a goeid fellow.
Doubtless the father was as much nt
fault as the son In fulling to make the
young man get nut ami hustle for him
elf during his younger clays, though
the average citizen may well question
whether the boy ever had the material
In him of which men nre miulei. Inci
dents like these in the wealthy social
circles of our eountry bring out moic
forcibly thu fact that the men of the
Nation are found among tho no-called
uncouth country louts, who, though
they ma) use a knife Instead oi a fori;
nnd wear cowhide boots when attend
ing a country soclnl possess n higher
degree of manhood nnd aie more de

It Is decidedly difficult for the gen
eral public to reach a positive opinion
on the row between Christian Andrews
tnd the Hoard of Education. It Is
quite clear, however, that the Hoard
loses no opportunity to rap Andrews
over the head. The request for further
Investigation of Andrews' petition to
open a prlvato school has more the ap
pearance of spite work than nnthlug
that has let occurred. The Hoard is
uuder no obligations to employ tench

Now that the pressure of assessable
stock has been relleve-d, and tbe money
for the sugar crop Is coming In, better
times nre promised with tho beginning
of tbe now year. Hut the returns from
the sugar crop will not pay for tho re
pair of our streets and general public
work necessary In the various govern
mental departments, nor will the mon

hitherto been obtained through their
labor on public work. Tne authoriza

do more nt this time to establish an
era of contentment than all tho money

Tho most Ingenious nnd unique pro
duction of tho horologle-al art Is said
to b owned by a wealthy Hindu
Prince. This clock has no dial, a richly
toned gong being suspended in its
place. ISencath this gong, on a metal
plate, lie a quantity of artificial skulls
and boms In n heap, there being
enough of these to form twelve skele
tons. Precisely nt 1 o'dock one skull, to
gether with the number of bones no
cessary to make ono skeleton, flics Into

visible! and mechanical force, leap's to
Its feet, seizes a mallet In Its bony
hand nnd strikes the suspended gong
a single blow. This being done, the
mechanical npeiatlons are reversed.
The mallet fall i brick Into its former
place, the skeleton returns to the heap
of skulls and bones, halls prostiato

Chinese Hul Formed for
LOOKING INTO THE LAW
IN VIEW OF MANUFACTURE
The Tariff Law Change Left a Loop
hole for Importation of Crude
Since the discovery that Breat quan
tities of opium arc being brought here
from San Kiancisco as ordinary mer
chandise the chances are that tho price
of the drug will advance ns thcro Is a
great dliTcrenic in the freight on opium
when shipped regularly and the rate
on general freight Heretofore it could
be brought from San Francisco almost
as cheap as If Imported directly from
the Orient. Chinese aro tho only Impor
ters of opium lieic nnd they ate denied
the privilege under United Stntes tariff
laws of Importing tho drug from for
eign countries. No white firms In this
city have so far seen their way cleur to
go Into the business Vo tho Chinese
mere limits have on this account had to
get the stuff from San Kinndsro.
It Is understood on good authority
that In the past three or four days a
liult of Chinese has been formed with
n view of Impottlng the opium direct
fiom the Orient through a whlto man
here. The prepared opium will be
brought here uutll the law of Import
lug crude opium Is looked Into and
then there Is a possibility that It will
be Imported and manufactured.
In a change In the tariff laws of 1SS0
when the duty on the drug was reduc
ed from twelve to six dollars a pound,
the matter of the Internal revenue tax
of $10 a pound un opium manufactur
ed In tbe I'nlted Stntes was left out
of the act. The duty on crudo opium
being tlxed at $1 a pound. Under this
law the saving to Importers would be
$5 a pound on the crude stuff which
could be manufactured and sold hero.
Since the local law against having
opium In possession was Knocked out
the people dealing In it have no fear.
They do not mix up with the pollen ns
was usual and no arrests for selling
opium have been mndu as It is almost
Impossible to catch a dealer.
Fiom a careful canvass of thu trade
as now carried on in Honolulu there
nre fiom one to two thousand pounds
of opium brought here every month.

Headed by Shanks Mobsman the
friend of laborers on tho waterfront,
the Longshoreman's Union was form
ed amid much enthusiasm at tho drill
lied luBt evening. The meeting was
In the nature of all meetings where a
Erat many wanted to talk and every
thing that was said was applauded.
The encroachment of tho Japanese as
dock laborers was given as the prime
i auto for the calling of tho meeting
and It was with a view of otgantzlng
as a body to fight the Orientals that
the speeches were made.
It was given out at tho meeting that
the call was not for the purpose of or
ganlzlng n political club and that nn
action looking to matters political
would be taken. The wise ones along
the front, however, aro of the opinion
that the Longshoreman's Union Is the
beginning of n party which will have
for Its motto 'Hawaii for Hawaiian
and Mossman for Congress."
A committee was selected Inst even
ing to diaft a constitution nud by

dent; Mr. Nlkn, treasurer; Krod Kan

RAPID TRANSIT M RES
Editor Evening Hulletln; Allow tne
through the medium of your paper to
relate an Incident nnd mako an inquiry
of the Honolulu Rapid Tramdt man
agement. I-ast Sunday morning n lady with
four children, bnuud for Sunday school,
entered a Mlltm street car nnd was
obliged to pay 23 cents for their fares
She inquired of tho conductor tho rea
son for this and was told that halt
fares were only for school children go
ing to or from school.
Having been an observer and auditor
Of thu above 'dialogue I was quite
amused to see a young woman almost
full giown, enter tho car this morning,
books lu bund, nnd complacently pass
the conductor n half fato ticket. Her
avoirdupois was fully that of tho four
little tots going to school ou the Sun
I want to ask of tho Rapid Transit
mnnngement whether thu rule holds
good, that half fares can only bo col
Ii'cted from children going to nnd from
school, if so the sooner n further rulo
permitting children under a certain ago
to ride half fare at nil times, tho better
for thu people and additional popular
ity for thu road.
What Honolulu needs Is choap tran
sit for tho little ones to breathing spots
on tho outskirts of tho (own, Sunday
and every other day In the week,
Such a policy would add greatly to
tho full fare patronage at all times.
