The national Industrial commission
holds that 'corporations should be tax

as determined by the value of their

been the aim of Hawaii tax assessors
for some time past.
Mr. Haywood's statements before
tho Wnys and Means Committee Indi
cate that he ought to read up on tin
subject ot Chinese Immigration If he
seeks to properly represent the facts
It Is not likely, however, that errors
regarding old laws will at this time
have any particular effect upon the
legislation In connection with Cubit.
Some brilliant nevvsgntherer has
found that-Queen Victoria was icspon
slble for Lord Pauncefote's attitude
during the Spanish-American war.
This statement Is a signal that the dis
cussion has gone far enough. There
are men enough living who had to do
with the affair without bringing In
England's universally honored Queen.
If It be true that the saloon question
Is square up against Treasuier Wright,
the Treasurer to fulfill the requests of
the Anti-Saloon League must come out
squarely against the policy of the Gov
ernor. As the League Is made up of
many of tho Governor's political
friends, It now remains to be seen
whether these friends have the .courage
of their convictions.
White House pages and Congres
sional messengers are now wearing an
official button to designate them all,
because Ignorant persons have mistak
en one New York Congresman'for a
page and other Congressmen for mes
sengers and asked them to run errands.
Such reflection on the dignity of na

the other fellow, but very distressing

Present Indications are that the
difficulties of the First National Bank
stockholders will pass on for the
Judgment of the courts It Is very un-
fortunatc'that members ot one of our
leading financial Institutions should be
forced into appeal to the courts to set
tie differences between Individuals, but
this seems to be the factional period of
Hawaii's existence and we suppose It
roust run Its course In business and
politics. The atmosphere will eventu
Ally be clearer when all these thunder
Clouds have expended their energies.
Agitation of the patriotic societies
for the protection of the American (lag
against misuse that amounts to dese
cration bids fair to bear fruit at thin
si salon of Congress
IJuilness houses quick to catch tip
waes of patriotism for advertising
purposes carried the flag craze to an
extreme which Justifies calling a halt.
Multiplicity of lings and frequent dls
pla of the nitlonal emblem Is a habit
or custom which innnot be practiced
too extensltel) Hut when the flag
with all It represents Is brought Into
use as an advertising dodger to be
klikcil about under foot, the educa
tional factor of the flag becomes utter
ly lost to sight This Is especially
true with the jmith of the country.
When the flag becomes so common that
It tan be used to exemplify the super
iority of hams or the advantages of
fered lij an article of trade. It will
eUmlll) be robbed of Its true purpose
To protect the flig as an emblem ot
the nation's highest alms and nsplra
tlons Is the highest duty that can bo
brought home to the people of any
countr) Those In early Jlfc taught to
respect our nntlonal banner are the
more certain to uphold In later life all
that Is good In what the emblem repre
sents The respect with which the flag
I treated evidences the degree of loy
alty nnd pride with which citizens fol
low Its highest teachings
It Is to be regretted that the flag ha,
to be protected bj law but If thought
less persons see fit to desecrate It, the
law to restrain them should be prompt
The labored effort of the official or
gan to make political capital out of
the Kona Sugar Company's affairs
strengthens the evidence that the so
called official faction Is capable of
adopting any means to discredit the
courts, and misrepresent the acts of
Judges who lefuso to be dictated to by
any other power than Justice and th
The endeavors of certain Republi
cans to whip the special election devil
around a stump are Interesting only
as exhibitions of how little some of our
so-cnlled Americans appreciate the
province nnd alms of Republican par
ty principles It Is an expression of
the old custom In vogue during Ha
waii's Independence vvheii political
parties were the creatures of a cam-
'palgn am) had no deeper meaning nor
more Important purpose than serving
as a medium for carrying an election
When new Issues arose old parties In
stead ot meeting the Issue gave up
their existence and the following went
hither and yon to whatever new party
best exemplified varying views. This
was thoroughly destructive to part
loyalty In the American sense and It
Is itgalnst the Influence of Biich educa
tlpn that the old line American partlc
have now to struggle.
"Good government" In the Territory
has come to mean "do-as-I-say govern
ment " Xone other seems good In the
esteem of one faction which steadfastly
refuses to accept the will of the voters
as expressed In the party primaries
But tho "do-as-I-say government" can
not win In the long run whatever tern
porary successes It mey secure ot
whatever party defeats it may assure
through rank treachery to the manifest
desire of the party's rank and, flic Re'
fusal to participate In a party cam
palgn Is Just as expressive ot disloyalty
as a straight vote for the opposition.
Tlioso who take such an Indifferent
and treacherous attitude may endeavor
to excuse their action, but when slm
mcred down to facts, they stand as
traitors to American party principle
The Republican party of the Fourth
district has a campaign on its hands.
The sneclal election can Tie won If the
men who call themselves Republicans,
whether members of factions or not,
will unite In the Bupport of the party'-)
candidate, or In other words use their
vote to preserve party Integrity. 11
this Is not done the strongest wing ot
the party following will be lost for tlia
general election of November, The Ha-
walan-Amcrlcons and the labor elc
ment, while they may not have a ma
jority vote In the Fourth District, at
least have the balance of power. II
their support Is lost, as It will be
through failure of tho Republicans to
make the contest, there Is little hope
for the party at the general election
COAL OIL AND "BRIGUUTTB8'
New York Commercial.
It seems to be a natural law that
when one source of any supply Is ex
hausted, a new source springs into
existence Nature has already reveal
ed to use one new variety of fuel,
which Is apparently almost Inexbaustl
ble and gives excellent promise of be
ing developed Into a better agent than
coal for general use. The tapactty of
coal oil as a heat-producing agent has
not been thoroughly tested, but bids
fair to become one of the most widely
used materials at the service of manu
nut while nature Is doing grett
things for us In supplying new fuel for
our use, Bcience Is also at work on the
problem, and her skill In solving II
Is becoming every day more apparent,
A European Inventor has Just brought
to public notlco a new "briquette" that
he has constructed from peat and llg'
nlte. It has a heating capacity equal
to that of brown coal. Ho Is a German
and, as Germany possesses over 5,
000,000 acres of peat beds. It would
seepi as though the material for the
basis of his "briquettes" was practical
It rcaly looks as If the woild may
feel quite at ease regarding Its pros
pects for future fuel supplies, with na
ture and science both working thus In
its behalf. Our coal beds may disap
pear, and our 'coal barons" become a
legend ot the misty past; but out
bodies will still be kept warm some
how, and our machinery will still rum
ble on, After mineral oil and 'bri
quettes" nature or science will give up
still another secret.
Ilossuet worked In a cold room with
his head warmly enveloped.
There Is a proposition before Con
gress to have a coin of a new denomi
nation added to our list, namely, a 2V&
cent piece, of copper, and there are al
ready those who are declaring that It
fills or will fill a long-fell want, be
sides conforming to our decimal sys
tem. It Is many years since we have had
n genuine copper coin the old cent
piece with the Goddess of Liberty
thereon. Tho two-cent piece was not
all copper, hut copper bronze, like tho
present one-cent piece, nnd since tho
old "red cent" went out of fashion wo
have had no coin to really Justify tlm
phrase "nary red," which at one tlmo
was so expressive of total financial In
competence. The three-cent coins havo
long since followed the copper. Tho
silver coin was one easy to lose and
became a nuisance. The two-cent
piece, with a llttlo "treatment" of nn
Inexpensive sort, wns often palmed off
by petty swindlers upon the unwary
for a "nickel" It was finally voted u
nuisance and withdrawal.
The cry for the proposed 214 cent
plececomes with most force from tho
South, where once so small a coin
would have been scorned. The Atlanta
Journal declares It would be used
largely and that there Is no reason
why should we not hnve It. It cites the
case of school children riding for "half
fare " I'p here that means three cents,
as things are. and the public Is tho
loser. The Journal also says "Tho
use of one-cent pieces hag Increased
enormously In the last few years nnd
another coin of less than Ave cents
nluc would be very acceptable," ana
that It should be coined and circulated
without delay. The "copper klncs
doubtless will agree to that proposi
tion But how will It affect tho bar
gain counter and the dollar goods for
9S cents trade?
STILES NARROW EE
Edmund Stiles, bookkeeper for
Sprecl.els &. Co, had n very nairovv
escape from death at the home of Gov
ernor Cleghorn, In Alnnhau, Walklkl
last evening. An electric wire hnd
parted and a lineman was sent out to
the place to repair the damage In order
that the people of Alnahau might not
be deprived of light during the even
Ing Stiles was one of quite a little
crowd tht watched tho operations ol
Previous to beginning operations on
tho wire, which lay among Bome of tno
bushes along the driveway, the
lineman warned all those present not
to touch the wire, as It was live
Stiles, being a little hnrd of hearing,
did not catch the warning of the
lineman and. going to the wire, took
hold of It Just beyond tho end. In an
Instant he was rigid with a tremen
dous voltage passing through his body
lie was absolutely helpless and had
It not been for the quick action of tho
lineman, ho would not have lasted
This worker, seeing tho difficulty,
quickly pulled the wire out of Mr.
Stiles' haiiils. The latter Ml to tho
ground In a dead faint. Tho nlaco
where the wire had como Into contact
with his hand was qulto badly burned
Stiles vvns taken Into tho house, where
he was rubbed with alcohol and artlfl
clal respiration was set up. A doctor
was telephoned for, but before his nr
rival Stiles was able to sit up and was
getting along well. Later Is. tho even
Ing. when the wound was dressed, ho
was pronounced out of all danger.
DOING G00D BUSINESS
The well appointed liquor houso of
Gomes & McTlghe on King street,
which that firm opened up several
months ugo, Is lookeu upon by tho
trade as one of the best-arranged, best
stocked nnd most commodious In tho
city. For many years both parties In
me firm have been In tho liquor bust
ness In this city The settlor member,
Mr Gomes, was with Camara & Co. for
a long time until ho bought out the
concern and formed tho partnership
with iom McTlghe, who for years was
the principal outside man for Macfar
lane . Co.
With the many friends of both Mes
srs McTlghe and Gomes they find
that thclr'patrons arc many and grow

plained of by many of tho trades peo
pie of Honolulu do not seem to have
reached Gomes & McTlghe, who cheer
fully acknowledge a much larger bus
