After yesterday's successful per

Governor Taft has experienced tho

Tho Danish West Indies arc sugar
producing Islands, yet there has been
no storm of protest against their pur

James W. I.ann of Mlddletown, N. Y.

and has been married 13 times. Ily oc

That tired feeling seems to bo re
sponsible for the Advertiser's com
plex misunderstanding of the guberna
torial situation and the President's In
tentions. As woman Is contracting t5 thi tie
back skirt, man Is expanding to the
full skirted coat and the broadening
pantaloons. Such Is tho contrariness
of human nature.
Profits shown In plantation reports
are always satisfactory and should
tend to offset any bad Influence that
the Kona company's tangle way luno
caused on the Coast.
Brigands arc reported to have fought
among themselves for the safe keeping
of Miss Stone. Evidently tho time for
tho ransom payment Is approaching
when the thieves fall out.
Republicanism Is evidenced In tho
otliclal organ by opposition to the for
mal nnd unanimous uctiou uf the Re
publican organization regarding tho
election In the Fourth District.
Waslilngton refused a dictatorship
and additional otliclal preferment
thereby setting a noble example to all
officials coming after him whether In
National, State or Territorial life.
Japanese are assimilating rapidly
with the citizens of the Mainland. At
a feast In California their menu con
sisted of bottled beer, turkeys, chick
ens, ducks, crabs, salads, sauces, cakes,
oranges nnd other fruits.
Honolulu's white labor has express
ed Itself emphatically on tho employ
ment of Orientals In Federal contracts.
There is no reason why the regulations
in force on the Mainland should not
be extended to this Territory.
The San Francisco Evening Post has
at last passed from the control of the
Southern Pacific railroad Interests.

The census of 1900 shows the de
plorable fact that only 12 per cent of
the women ot America aro engaged lit
gainful occupations. Presumably tho
remaining 88 per cent aro wastefnlly
occupied. No wonder that man Is so
often financially emborrassed.
Judge Estce's review of Washing
ton's character In Its relation to Am
erican manhood Is worthy of tho care
ful perusal of old and young In this
Territory. In referring to tho local llfo
of the Islands, tho Judge stated
wholesome truths, which should be a
guide not only In official llfo but In
the dally life of the citizen.
Tho contention that the canvass re
quired In a special election dissipates
party energy can only arise irom poll
tlcul cownrdlce or folly. It may bo
that thoso holding this opinion have
election expenses In mind. If so they
Bhould recall tho fact so well establish
rul In the first general election, that
money docs not buy votes In this Tor
Hory. Voters must bo led. They can
not be driven. The party that "lays
down" In tho face of nn election how'
ver Inslgnlflcnnt will find Its power
of leadership materially lessened.
The Governorship situation as out
lined by tho New York Evening Post
correspondent comes nearer an exact
review of the status of Hawaii's offi
cial affairs than anything that hac yet
been published In tho MalnUnd press.
Neither the Humphreys fight nor tho
legislative fight nor the failure of the
administration party In the elections
have alone caused tho President to
seriously discuss a chango In the offi
cial head of this Territory. It Is the
whole combined, the constancy of tho
warfare, the bitterness of the strlfo
and the general absence of peace and
contentment which lcada President
Itoosevelt as It leil President McKIn

solution of a difficulty which the ad
ministration representative In the
Territory has not been able to

Influenced by the general results as

The trial of two years has told Its
oa'ii story. It Is nonsense t'j contend
that there Is no man who cjc pct.ie
Itil'y nnd yet energetically n-luilnlstcr
the nffalrs of Hawaii thereby uniting
nil progressive forces. It It equally
foolish for the friends of Mr. Dole to
attempt to establish their contention
that nil local citizens contending for a
change nrc carpetbaggers, malicious
political Job chasers or corrupllonlsts.
Too many citizens thus charged have
established their Integrity of charac
ter, loyalty to principle and evenness
of Judment among men prominent In
national official and legislative lite.
The President has made up his mind
to one program of peace. If this proves
Impossible to carry out In nil details,

Hnd tho Merchants' Association
stopped to consider tho effect of Its
action on the Oriental population
which, during the last few months has
not offered opposition to the Board of
Health In returning death certificates.
It Would have done as the Chamber of
Commerce has done go slow.
THE PREMATURE APPbAL.
The careful thought and mature
Judgment by which the Chamber of
Commerce was guided havo served to
bring out the fuct that a good portion
of our citizens. Including many mem
bers of the Merchants' Association
have been misled by tho positive
statements of enthusiasts made with
out a thorough canvas of facts.
This Is to be regretted but this Is
no time for regrets or recriminations.
Whatever exaggerations may havo
arisen from snap Judgment are off and
nway and the duty devolves upon our
citizens to unite for the consideration
of the best ways and means to accom
plish what It now appears the Federal
Government Is not likely to' do for us.
The constant quantity with which tho
community has to deal Is that tho
town needs thorough cleaning up aud
it is generally accepted that this work
should go forward more speedily than
the health authorities are now able to
proceed on account of a lack of funds.
Honolulu Is not suffering under the
burden of an epidemic except It be
an epidemic of poverty In the treasury
And this Impoverished condition of pub
lie departments Is not due to lick of
wealth, but rather through a lack of
available funds. The first effort then
should be to unlock the funds. Every
taxpayer would be glad to see theso
funds coming from tho Federal strong
box. There aro many very good rea
sons why money should be forthcom
ing from this source. Yet we have be
fore us tho fact, that tho United
States authorities have never assumed
control of any local sanitation prob
lems except In event of epidemics.
Honolulu has no epidemic, Is not seri
ously threatened nor Is there nny de
sire to stir up or Import ono for the
mere pleasure of getting a hand In
Uncle Sam's strong box.
Having onco started out on tho
house cleaning campaign there should
be no turning back. Our tourist trade
will bo Irreparably damaged, if It can
be said that having appealed for I-efl
eral assistance and falling to get It,
Honolulu did nothing. Every business
and snnltnry consideration bids the
peoplo of the city to go forward.
The Uullctln has believed and no
competent argument has been offered
to discredit tho contention, Hint the
situation can bo met by an appeal to
our own legislative authority. This
will furnish tho ways nnd means. Citi
zens should bo at work to proud'- the
desired result. If ono lino of endeavor
falls there should bo an Immediate
Bubstltuto rendy to be promptly taken
A calm review of sanitary conditions
and the deslro for assistance shows It
to bo nn open question whether the
endeavors to obtain funds from out
side sources have not doubled the dim
cultles In dealing with Orientals with
which local authorities have to con
TOO MUCH ONE POOT.

True, the sugar Industry Is all Import
