Thurston's organ has become so ac
customed to the policy of wholesale
misrepresentation that It has to be
called down by even such n meek and
lowly follower as Attorney General
When Attorney General Dole says ho
does not run his olllco on politics, It
makes the people smile. Especially
when they call to mind the part ho
played In tho notorious contempt pro
ceedings. Friends of tho Governor who prefer
to put up money rather than have a
special session of the Legislature ought
to take a trip through Kewalo. Will

people know that the Dole-Thurston
claim Is fraudulent.
Kewalo recks In filth not because It
Is populated by people who seek tho

The Advertiser says J. J. Dunno is
nuti-Dolo In his politics. Tho
riullctln Is unablo to speak with equal
posltlvcness of Mr. Dunne's politics
as ho has apparently let politics very
much alone. This paper Is aware, how
ever, that It was not long slnco Attor
ney General Dole fell on Mr. Dunno's
neck nnd wept. Did Dolo stab Dunno
In the back or did Dunno refuse to be
hoodwinked by tho blandishments of
Dole's nlmcompoopery nnd go on mind
tng his own business?
Tho .lonnrttlrn nf Vnlrnnn Mnralmll
removes from the Honolulu newspaper!.1'" article Is mado up of n tissue of
field one ot its most interesting men.
Many men differ as to Marshall's mo
tives and character but those best ac
quainted with him know that ho Is at
heart as kind as a woman and vicious
ag an opponent when flRlitlng for a
cause) ho believes to be Just. Marshall
can write, is original and capable and
will make his way wherever he goes.
Tho Bulletin wishes tho Volcano the
best- of success under Its new man
agers who arc capablo men nnd hard
workers, but tho Volcano without
Marshal will ho for a time like applo
pio without cheese.
In continuing Its campaign ot splto
against Judge Humphreys, Thurston
and his gnug might file charges that
Ji'dgo Humphreys sentenced a man to
prison for tho 'heft ot a few cigars
and also charged a masteVto Investi
gate tho character of tho bonds in
" which tho funds'of a minor aro Invok
ed. Tlio tho charges and see what
comes of It Thurston does not daro
to file any such charges and ho knows
It; because It would lead to an Investi
gation and more complete, oxpoturo of
his malicious attacks upon the Hir.it
Judge of the First Circuit Court. Tho
cowardly and constant" indent ors of
the Thurston gang to disci edit tho
cour'i of Justice in tbeso Island! befnro
tho local citizens are not without edu
cational Influence In Washington.
In canvassing the recent appoint
ments of thn President In this, Terri
tory the official organ sees a general
turning down of all political forces out
side the select ring which Thurston
dominates, and Dolo meekly follows.
As the appointments are eminently
satisfactory to all political factions,
with the possible exception of the Im
mediate following ot disappointed can
didates, it Is difficult to discover where
in the bluthorsktto circle of the Adver
tiser has causo for Joy. The appoint
ments demonstrate nothing If not that
the State delegations In Congress hava
more Influence In appointments than
a Territory. It has ever been thus and
Is likely to remain so. There Is noth
ing whatever In the appointment ot
tloblnson to provo that his selection
was prejudicial to the Integrity ot
capacity of Oaypless. Dunne's failure
to obtain the District Attorney's bil
let was due to tho ability of the
Vomlng delegation to hold this ofllce
on. Its regular patronage Hat. Thurs
ton Is welcorno to tho hollow victory
which Is claimed by bis organ,
TUB KEWALO HLOCKADU.
Kewalo Is n bogbole.
Money wns appropriated for Improve'
tucnt by tho Legislature.
No money In tho Treasury to carry
oil the work.
This Is the situation In which tho
Hoard of Health, Department ot Pub
lie Works and the Treasurer of tho
Territory find themselves when ap
pro.ichlng the Kewalo problem which
presents necessities that arc manda
It requires no argument to prove
that Kewalo needs attention. It Is
populated by working people whoso
homes during the most favorable
weather nret surrounded by filth and
during a rainy season are merely
homes In a quagmire. Kewalo Is a men
ace to Its own residents through no
fault of theirs except It be their In
ability to movo to more expensive
quarters. Kewalo Is a disgrace to the
city ot Honolulu. Kewalo Is a dis
grace to tho government of the Terri
That nothing Is dono in the district
Is not due to nny desire on the part
of the Uoard of Health or tho Superin
tendent ot Public Works to allow
present conditions to obtain. Tho
Health Hoard has hammered Incessant
ly to secure some action looking to
Improvement. The Superintendent of
Public Works has been no less diligent
nor enthusiastic in his search for ways
and means. ' They one and oil encoun
ter the same blockade no money. The
Legislature granted the appropriation.
There are no funds with which to
satisfy the appropriation.
Thus the blockndc Is again up to tho
Governor. The situation calls for ac
tion. With what sfieclous arguments
ran the Governor make excuses for
failure to act. There, is one way to
obtain tho money nnd only ono way.
The Governor can appeal to tho Legis
lature and lio must appeal to tho
Legislature If he possesses any regnrd
for tho public In general or the citizens
of Kewalo In particular. The Governor
cannot offer ono competent argument
in support of present conditions In this
district. In lis present shape tho placo
