A LESSON PROM PORTO RICO.
Less than a couple of years ago,
during the campaign of 1900, tho
Democratic section of the press was
filled with columns of scare head fctor
les about the stnrvlng Porto Itlcans
and the depression In Porto Ittco, all
of which was attributed to the annexa
tion of the Inland by the United Stntcs
and the application of American laws
The Fornker act continued alt Spanish
laws In force until amended or repeal
ed by the local legislative assembly
Hut a little thing like the truth Is
quickly turned nBtde by Deraociatlc
But the legal s)stem of Porto Itlco
Is fast coming Into closo hnrmony
vlth the general principles of law
prevailing In the United States. And
what Is the result? Mr L S Itowe,
chairman of the law and revision com
mlsBlon of Porto Itlco, sn)s that the
feeling of buo)nncy now prevnlent In
Porto Itlco stands In marked contrast
with the depression of two )enrs ago
This Is due to the adaptation of Amcr
Iran methods and the abandonment of
the Spanish s)stem of government
Mr Howe adds, and this Is a point
worthy of consideration In Hawaii,
"both political patties have come to
the support or the administration nnd
the lenders pledged support to the
Governor In their efforts for tho ad
vancement of the common Interests
of the Island "
Here Is n case where both political
parties have thrown aside their differ
ences for the common weal of their
common Island home If tho Porto
Rlcans can set us this example, how
much easier It should be for the two
factions of one political party to come
together hero for the advancement of
the common Interests of this gioup of
Islands which Is n Territory of the
United States and should be teaching,
not learning from, Porto Hlco
Most Interesting In this connection
Is tho fact that the reeling of buoy
ancy which now prevails throughout
Porto Hlco Is due to the Improvement
of the credit of the municipalities, as
shown In the San Juan lonn There Is
no question of Territorial administra
tion In Porto Hlco It Is purely a ques
tlon of good municipal government,
bated upon a sound American system
of legislation. The floating of this San
Juan loan, we nre told, "will enable the
cities and towns to undertake much
needed Improvements In drainage, wa
ter supply and sanitation' It Is held
by Borne that tho floating of n Tcrrl
torlal loan at this Juncture would
hardly show such an "Improvement In
the credit" of Hawaii as was evinced
In the ense or the San Juan loan Hut
give us the municipalities nnd let the
cities nnd towns have tho local gov
ernment, Tor which they are so anx
ious. In ordei to secure "much needed
Improvements In drnlnnge, water sup

the material to work with What It
lacks Is enthusiastic civic pride and
the energy to go ahead. With a lew
to securing an exchango of opinion
and voicing the sentiment for city Im

that thu public attention thus called

THE MUNSDY NBW8PAPUR.
When Frank A Munsey. the revolu
tionlzer of magazlno publications,
started Into the newspaper field by tho
purchase of tho Dally Nowb of New
York and the Washington Times, thero
was much speculation among publish
ers and renders as to what ho would
do Munsey's career as a magazlno
publisher proved him to be a man of
ideas. His magazines are by no

What has this to do with Hawaii
and the city of Honolulu?
It merely shows that t.,e men who
shout "corruption" tho loudest, tho
men who deramo others who would

often times the most short sighted and

"Good government" never was and
never will bo accomplished by such
means. Hawaii would be fortunate to

better contented. Its local entcrm-lses
