The published program for Christ

Its relations with the ruling party ot
the country. It Is gratifying to know.
however, that Mr. Sew-all has not
withdrawn his personal interest in tho
commercial and political affairs of the
Territory and may be classed as n
friend nt court In nil matters relating
to the progrcssUc and aggressive de
velopment of the Islands.
The Hnnna-Koraker row In Ohio Is
at long lived as tho endcavnts of Ha
waii to reach a standing of peace and
good will. The factions got together
long enough to carry the election and
the war begins again. The difference
In Hawaii Is that the party Is so handi
capped by the operations of a minority
faction that It Is Impossible to carrry
an election, and unfortunately the
same minority with which the Chief
Executle of the Territory associates
ls steadily widening the breach.
With the chalreian of the Senate
Commltee on Cuban Affairs opposed to
Cuban reciprocity or any tarllT favors
tho prospect for Hawaii being given
time to get on Its feet seems particu
larly bright. Tho best Cuba can pos
sibly hope for Is to obtain a slight re
duction In tariffs to cocr political ne
cersltlcs. The temper of national lead-
tfrs, however, at tho present time points
to tho establishment of nn Indcpcn
dent government In the Islands beforo
any attempt Is made nt changing tho
status of trade relations.
The notable number of horrible r.ill
road wrecks following so close upon
the announcement that the great trans
continental routes had started In 0:1 a
frpctd competition raises a qu"itlon In
the public mind whether the speed
1-jiilt ls net being forced far uoyond
the bounds of safety. It Is Invariably
the conductor or train despatcher nlio
U credited with "u mistake," but !f the
liEpunsiijiiuy were traced to Its ;run
fcourcc, It ten to one tho cause for dis
aster would ho found In orders fioro
headquarters to "make time."
Governor Dole certainly ought to bo
vllllng to attend a meeting of citizens
called to ratify the President's policy
toward Hawaii as expressed In his mes
sugc to Congress. It ls hardly posslblo
that ho could find the ileslrn In h!

Rule Republicans since he Is on record
as holding this political branch of the
community In contempt. Ho refuses to
cooperato with .them. In fact ho re
fuses to do anything nt all on account
of tho Home Rulers. It wc,uld indeed
be gratifying if tho Governor of this
Territory had so used the duties of his
high oflleo as to bo ablo to accept an
Imitation to preside at a public meet
ing called by any political organiza
tion. MONOPOLY OF VIRriE.

this Territory point to a (own, a conn-

It feeds on malice. Is supported by
prejudice and piomotcs disgust In tho

It Is tho duty of the Governor to call

The conclusions drnwnjiy the organ
In its claims to a good government
monopoly are Impossible, nnd Its own;
supporters know It. It defames that lt
may for the tlma being mislead. It!
plays upon tho fears of moral cowards
but teaches n dally lesson of distrust
to the men. nnd they constitute a solid
majority, who stand flrnily nnd fear-,
lessly for progrcsle government and
the development of the Territory "on
traditional American lines." I
As the position taken by the orgnn Is
Impossible nnd an Imposition on the

The mandatory character of tho situ

ticularly tho Republican organs ft I?ew

"It should be clearly understood

discretion, no alternative. On tho
presentation of tho proof of tho noto
rious causes tho House must cut tho

freight on goods between Honolulu

merchants can buy as cheaply on tho

nnd tho freight rate to cither Island

himself out of the race. The Honolulu

be crowned with success.
