For Representative Fourth District.
W. W. HARRIS
That the patient waiter Is no loser
Is well exemplified In the final selec
tion of W. V. Harris as the standard
bearer of the Republican party for the
kpecial election of the Fourth District.
Mr. Harris Is a young man who
should command the support of cery
clement of the Republican party, and
Ills acceptance proveg be)ond question
that the tolld sentiment of the Repub
lican oters stands for the preservation
of narfv Integrity at all times. The
Republican party Is not an orgnnlza
tlon that "lays down," and nowvthat
the candidate Is In the field there
should he no half heartcdness in any
branch or faction. It Is a victory
wo want and lctory we must have.
The campaign will necessarily be short
and sharp, but It should not be lack
ing In enthusiasm. The character ot
the candidates Is such that the Strug
gle will be entirely free from person
alities. It will be fought out on prin
ciple of which the Republican party
exemplifies the highest and tho best
for the proper gocrnment of this Ter
ritory. The platform on which Mr. Harris
goes before the people Is one of prog
ress, recognition of popular demands
and a careful safe guarding of the
people's Interests. It should and does
appeal to eery class or division of
American citizenship In tho Fourth
DIstricT. And Mr. Harris is a man
who can bo depended upon to stead
fastly uphold cery party promise.
.'he duty of every Republican In
the Fourth DlBtrlct Is plain. Steadfast
support and energetic work Is what Is
needed and It Is what ccry loyal Re
publican voter will gle. The Fourth
District Is a solid Republican District
and thus 11 can and will remain, bo It a
upeclal election or general election.
Let it be proed that when It comes to
un election the Republican voter Is a
constant quantity, always to be de
Congressman Mondcll must

There should be no stay-at-home Re
publicans on the 9th of April.
The "get together" Idea should have
absolute sway In the Republican ranks.
Now let the joung Republicans ot
the Fourth District show that they
know how to get together uud provn

tion. Subscriptions to the McKlnley mem
orial fund In Porto Rico Bet a good ex

The House wants the canal bill pass,
rd and the Senate Is equally anxloua
about the thlp subsidy bill. Under
these circumstances It ought to be pos
sible to obtain favorable action on
The short and sharp campaign can
not be objectionable to, any business
man. The candidate, the party and
the principles at stake demand enthu
siastic support from every voter, and
they should get It.
Mr. Harris talks straight from the
shoulder and shows himself worthy of
tho solid Republican vote. Difference

Framers of the Kahn Chinese exclu
elon bill are discovering that their
earnest endeavor to get everything Is
likely to result In accomplishing noth

wall will have many holes poked In It.
Recent Washington dispatches stato
that Congressman Charles E. Little
field Is In the hands of his friends as a
candidate for Speaker of the House of
Representatives In case tho Republi
cans carry the elections next fall. Mr.
Llttleflcld's youth In point of Con
gressional service and his speedy ad
vance to prominence In national af
fairs fihe this announcement added In
terest. His candidacy appears to have
genuine and strong support.
I.lttlcfleld went to Congress from
Dlngley's district less than four years
ago. He was hardly well ensconced In
his Congressional sent before he came
out In open and forceful opposition to
the administration policy as expressed
In the Foraker Act dealing with Porto
Rico. An effort was made at the out
set not to take Llttleflcld seriously. He
was a newcomer so-to-speak. But Llt
tleflcld's powerful-ami comlnclng attl
ture demanded attention. "Older mem
bcrs of Congress found that he could
not be nut'nsldc. His arguments were
convincing and the character of his
motives was aboe the possibility of
successful Impeachment. 'Admlnlstra
tlon leaders found that they had a man
to deal with who not only voiced his
own opinions of Justice but was spokes
man in the halls of Congress for an
equally forceful sentiment In the Re
publican party. Weaker men were
whipped Into line. Llttleflcld failed to
kill the Foraker bill but he went to an
honorable defeat that strengthened his
Influence in Congress and out of It.
The same Llttleflcld Is now lined up
against the administration policy to
ward Culia but In the midst of this he
Is brought forward by a goodly num
ber of his nssdclates as the prospec
tive leader of the House. Whether op
posed to the administration or not lie
has clearly demonstrated tho qualities
of leadership that command admira
tion and respect. As a patronage get
ter Llttleflcld has not made a marked
success. About six months ago an
officer passed through Honolulu on hU
way to the Philippines, whose appoint
ment was the first Mr. Llttleflcld had
been able to obtain since his election
to Congress. Doubtless patronage
would hac come easy to the Congress
man had he made a sacrifice of prin
ciple and come into line, lint this U
not Llttlcfleld's way He le a strong
party man, and a popular man with the
people. He Is one of the men whom the
people can trust at all times, and pres
ent Indications are that he will bn
heard from In connection with higher
offices In the gift of tho American elec
torate. Careful reading of Representative
Mondcll's bill rclntlvo to appeals
from the United Stntcs District Couit
shows It to bo one of those "Joker'
measures not unknown to legislative?
bodies. The effect of the bill Is to make
a t'nltcd States Court secondary to
the courts of a Territory. It Is the
most thoroughly unAtncrJcan scheme
that has ever been presented to Con
gress In connection with the affairs ot
Hawaii. There would be quite as
much sense or reason In presenting a
measure making it possible to appeal
from the Supreme Court of the United
States to the Supreme Court of Ha
waii. Sinro It was learned that Whltelavv
item win nave to pay xzo.onn housq
rent while attending the coronation,
the disappointment of men who want
ed to go Ig much less keen.
Announcement of the death of Het
ty Oreen's husband Is the first re
minder many people had that Mr
Oreen ever existed.
TUB TUA-TUA EXPERIMENTS
So much critical discussion has been
offered In connection with local experi
ments made with tho put ported tua
tua plant leprosy cure that It Is highly
proper to consider the facts. Far
from being Indifferent to the poslblll
ties of this herb the local health au
thorities have put It to text, with re
sults thus far being entirely negative.
mis nnaing coincides with the ex
perience of scientists of the United
States Marino Hospital service. Post
the results hae not been sufficiently
authentic to warrant anything further
than what Is already being done.
namely, the cultivation of the plant, a
study of Its curative qualities through
chemical analysis and when the plant
Is developed, the use of Its produrt
with such patients as are disposed to
accept the treatment.
This Is the situation In a nutshell.
Ono test lias been made and an un
favorable report made. The Hoard of
Health officials under tho direction of
Dr. Sloggett are now at woik to make
more thorough experiments If possi
ble and find the curative quality.
The discussion brought up by this
plant points tho moral that has been
patent to professional men, officials
and citizens of Hawaii for many carsj
the desliablllty If not necessity of om
ploing n scientist who shall give all
his time to the study of leprosy. The
Hoard of Health of which W. O. Smith
was the head made an effort to accom
plish this and successive boards hate
had the same end In view Lack of
funds and Inability to get the man for
tho work has b,ecn the barrier con
stantly encountered. Tho probability
that tho Fedeial Government could
easily find tho man and the money has
furnished the main argument' In favor
of Federal control of the leper receiv
ing station nmf settlement. As Fed
eral control Is likely, however, to carry
with It the very undesirable national
lazaretto Iden It thereby becomes Im
practicable. This very fact should In
fluence our own authorities which con
trol appropriations to make possible
through Territorial channels what the
Federal government ould and would
make a fact

"Curiously enough, tho Board of
Health of Hawaii Is seemingly unwill

or even to permit him to treat thoso
lepers under the enro of the boaid.
President Sloggett of the board when
HBked as to this, said: "Tho Hoard
of Health ot Hawaii has invariably
turned down requests to bo allowed
to experiment with leprosy cures. Wo

The newspapers of Honolulu have
taken the matter up, and In vigorous

Thus tho San Francisco Chronlclo:
"It would be Interesting to learn up
on what grounds tho prophylactic
qualities of tua tua In the treatment ot
leprosy are based. Are there any defi

Camp treated with benefit to the pa

"There should be no great difficulty
In ascertaining these facts, and If It
can bo decisively shown that even par

derived from tho administration of

Washington, Mar. IS. Official disap
proval has been expressed by tho
United States of the refusal of Ger
many to evacuate Tien Tsln, China
has appealed to the poneis to name a
dato when It can resume control ot
the city, and renewed efforts will be
made by Sccrctnry Hay to bring this
about as early as possible. The ques
tion Is an Important one, bcause it is
tho general understanding that con
tinued opposition will have a decidedly
unfavorable effect upon tho Chinese.
They have kept their part of the bur
gain as stated In the protocol signed
by the powers last September, and the
authorities believe It only Just that the

that point back to her Tonquln pos
