A special session of the .Legislature
U tho most acceptable New Year's
greeting the Oovcrnor can offer the
pcoplo of this Territory. Will he give
It? Will he sweep tho cobwebs of
piOclal blockading and act.
y If the New Year does not bring n new
Governor or a new policy on the part
of the present Chief Executive the Ter
ritorial administration will register a
memorable political defeat when It
goes to the polls In November, 1902.
The man who celebrates tho New-
Year by swctUng off Is deserving of
sympathy. If he cannot cease the
uror of his ways on any other day he
certainly can't make much headway
by centering his good resolutions on
the first day of tho new year.
Every time Judge Humphreys makes
a decision contrarywlse to the desires
of tho Powers That Malign ho Is
charged with either corruption or a
spirit of revenge. 'Tuas ever thus and
ever will be as long as an Independent
and fearless Judge remains on the
bench tn the Territory of Hawaii.
The necessity for an official Inspec
tor of electrical wiring as suggested
by the Uullctln Is forcibly brought
home to the people of Honolulu by tha
verdict of tho Coroner's Jury In tho Ab
Fal death. How far tho powers con
ferred upon the Superintendent of
1'ubllc Works can bo toward Immedi
ate action remains to be seen. It ll
tcrtaln that another session of tho
Legislature ought not to pass without
furnishing the complcto authority to
enforce as well as appoint.

ed that the pcoplo of Honolulu ought
to be willing to make up whatever tie
flclcncy may bo caused through a lack
of enthusiasm on the other Islands.
It Is a curious fact that the South
ern States, fighting against a reduction
ot Congressional representation on ac
count of the disfranchisement of ne
groes, are finding their most ardent
support from Northern States that
were hot beds of abolition. If South'
ern representation Is reduced It also
means cutting out Congressmen from
certain Northern States whose popu
lation has fallen off. It shows that tho
people will overlook many faults rather
than give up any numerical force in
the councils of the Nation.
The superintendent ot the govern
ment tH-ctrlc light station whomever he
may be is by no means the proper per-J
son for general Inspector ot electrical
wiring. Thcro Is Just as good reason
for appointing the superintendent ot
any prlvato elecrlca corporation to
the position. No Inspector can do Jus
tice to himself or anyone else it placed
in tho position of passing Judgment on
tho work ot his own workmen. There
Is as much sense in this governmental

The development ot the Honolulu
Athletic Club along lines that point to
permanent organization Is highly gra
tifying to all those Interested in ama
teur sport. Honolulu Is large enough1
and Its sporting Interests sufficiently
diversified to warrant the members of
this organization to branch out In tho
social features of club life. Such a
course cannot fall to put now life Into
all athletic activity besides furnishing
a pleasant gathering place for young
men whoso means will not warrant
their connection with moro expensive
Tho effort of an official organ to rep
resent that Judges are Included In tho
recent civil service order transmitted
to executive officers of the Department
of Justlco by the Attorney General fur
nishes another exhibition of Idiotic
Ignorance of American administration.
When tho administration of the United
(Mates reaches the point where it dic
tates to Judges on the bench, Justlca
will have fallen to as low an estate as
certain officials of this Territory would
now bo pleased to see it. The Presi
dent and Attorney General of the
United States are executive officers.
They cannot nor do they presume tn
dictate to any judge.
NEW YKAK NliCBSBITIES.
In looking over the year just passed
there Is much In the history of this
Terlrtory that gives good cause for
gratification and not a llttlo for com
mlseratlon. Tho Territory has not
progressed as many would wish. It nas
encountered and is still struggling
with what seem to the majority of its
pcoplo unnecessary official blockades.
There is not a thoughtful citizen ol
the Commonwealth, however, who docs
sot look to the future with confidence
that It offers brighter and more satis
factory conditions; that whatever
failures tho past may have brought
will be but tho signal for greater
energy, moro vigor and a sharper strug
gle If necessary to sccuro the fulfill
ment of the highest Ideals. The past
has shown and the future will prove
that tho one way and the only way tn
the realization of Ideals that mako for
peaco nud progress Is tho amalgama
tion of all our political force on more
liberal lines. Thcro must bo an ac
ceptance of tho truism that Qod doe
not confer all civic honesty and civic
prldo upon one man or one faction.
Thcro must be recognition by a tem
porary ruling minority faction that In
the long run 'tho majority rules and
the majority will not bo hammered Into
a weak and cringing vassalage by
threats or any arts of cajolery that
""' """ or expedients may
Honest, stralghtforwnrd activity will
win the day. It gains tho confldencs
of tho pcoplo everywhere. It is the
keynote of the official life, of our nation
and according as tho Territory follows
the same methods and the Bamc ideals
It will go forward .
Don't forget that a McKlnley mem
orial certificate is a highly proper New
Year's remembrance for tho younger
REFORMATION THAT REFORMS,
A recent visitor to the Missouri re
formntory for boyB gives a short de-
scrlntlon of the work done at that
school which may well carry Its leu
ton to tho citizens of Hawaii whoso
reform school Is as far from modern
perfection as It Is possible for such an
institution to b.
There nro upwards of 350 boys In tho
Missouri Institution and all tho work
done is performed by tho prisoners.
who range In ago from G to 20 years
The.'j was one building for the school
when It was first started, but since,
then additional buildings liave been
erected, and every bit of the work dona '
has been done by tho boys. They even
mako tho brick, and tho only cost to
the State Is for the raw material used
In tho construction. Tho visitor dc
scribes ono building which would have
cost about J20.0U0 If let by contract, I
v.'iiicu was crecieu uy me uoya at a
cost of $3500.
Tho boys built a house for the super
intendent of the school, put In all the
plumbing nnd woodwork, plastering
and decorating, nnd It Is aa good a Job
as could havo been dono nnywhere.
When the boys leave the school they
possess a practical knowledge of some
trndo which will afford them tho
means of making an honest livelihood.
Some ot them havo dono very well.
Tho prlvato secretary to tho president
of ono ot tho greatest railroad systems
ot the West is a graduate of this school
and many other boys nro tilling re
Tho great dlfferenco between tha
Missouri school and tho so-called Re
form Bchool of Hawaii Is that the one
Is conducted with a view to reforma
tion and the other as a place to serve
n sentence. Reforo Hawaii can ac
complish anything toward tho refor
mation of Its wayward boys It must

NOT TRUE TO THE POLE
Few familiar sayings convey a moro
euoneous notion than tho phrase,
"True as tho nccdlo to tho pole." In
order to keep track of tho unfaithful
ness of the neodlo to iho pole, or tho
"variation of the compass" from tnto
north, tho United States maintains a
separate bureau, the division of terres

now preparing, In cooperation with

PK0GKE8H IN SIMPLIFIED
Probably tho most Important action
taken In the United States tn regard
to orthography was that of tho Nation
al Educational Association when It
formally adopted for use In all Its of
ficial, publications a simplified spell
ing for theso twclvo words program,

Matthews argues (In "Tho internation

the simplified spellings mentioned:

these twelve words liavo established
themselves tn their new form suffi

Professor Matthews says, however,
that there arc a good many people In
the United States who hold to tho
"Ignorant belief that a word gains dig
nity by needlessly Increasing tho num
ber of its letters." In illustration ho
makes refcrenco to tho Invitations is
sued to tho opening exercises of tha
Pun-American Exposition at Buffalo,
"Moro than ono newspaper com
mented on tho fact that tho commis
sion requested tho "honour" of their
guests' company, whereas It Is the
almost universal usage of Americana
to spell this word without the 'u'; and
tho nowsnancr writers asked what
might bo tho reason for this strange
affectation on the part of tho Buffalo
gentlemen. This affectation, indeed,
seemed doubly strango on tho part ot

As another indication ot tho trend
of authoritative example, Professor
Matthews retails that the United
States Government not long ago ap
pointed a board to decldo on.a uniform
orthography for geographical names:
"Iho recommendations of this body
wero generally In tho direction of In

And theso makers of school books also

by tho Association wero two that drop

'oxldo' and 'qulnlno.' Even tho word
