There Is no such plank In the Repub
lican platform as What's the use."
An honest and forceful campaign Is
the ruling spirit of Republican acti
vity. Rev. Srcno Bishop's acknowledge
ment that he Is sponsor for an attack
on an evangelist causes no surprise.
It Is too bad that the Circuit Judges
did not furnish their apartments wltn
a broken table and n three legged stool.
A canvass of the business houses
shows that there will be no stay-at-home
Republicans In the business dis
trict on April 9th.
The resumption of absolute freedom
of traffic with Mainland ports Indicates
that nfter nil Honolulu is capablo of
taking care of Itself, though Federal
assistance Is acceptable at all times.
If furnishings of Judicial chambers
were purchased with the purpose of
forcing a special session of tho Legis
lature, what were the repairs to the
court house made for.
The Advertiser assists the Republi
can campaign by republishing an edi
torial based on Its own wholesale con
demnation of the Hawaiian-American
section of the electorate.
Dlshop , Nichols has Impressed
churchmen so favorably that In many
minds the only regret occasioned by
the transfer Is. that Dlshop Nichols Is
not to remain to carry on the work ho
has so successfully inaugurated. -
It Is better late tlinn never. Men and
newspapers who reviled Altgeld for
pardoning anarchists, now that he is
dead give publicity to tho story that
Altgeld released these men because of
his honest belief that they were un
It Is said that Congressman Moody
who Is to be Roosevelt's; Secretary of
the Navy, is a very keen politician and
successful wlelder of men. Tho way
In which the President is gathering
solid men of political judgment about
him speaks well for the prospects of a
successful administration and a ro
nomination. Whether the regulation. against the
sale of fish on the streets will stand
tho test of the courts or not, It un
doubtedly serves a very good purpose,
Tho object of the measuro Is to guard
against the sale of tainted Ash and so
far ns Is generally known goes a long
way toward guaranteeing to house
wives the good quality of their pur
chases. M. Hughes le Roux, In an address at
Columbia University, said tho most po
tent cause of the prevention of mar
riages In Franco Ib the Increasing do
mand of the women for a life of com
fort and case. Men find they have not
tho price to keep such un establish

THE HONEST C0UR8C.
The manful and energetic course of
tho Republican organization In deal
Ing with the questions raised by Can
dldate Dreler's qualifications Is ex pros
alve of a strong determination to
eschew expedients nad get at facts.
This Is right. Nothing can be lost to
the party by meeting this Issue square
ly and cairjlng It through for u final
legal ruling, which shall not only de
termine the status of the present 'candi
dates but will also clear the pathway
of any possible complications in tho
Carrying out the theory expounded
yesterday by Secretary qooper, It Is
possible to nomlnato anyone provided
papers are signed by the, required num
ber of qualified voters. .This' would
open tho way to vorlQus forms of-poll
tlcal trickery which may mlalead tho
voters and embarrass honest political
workers of all parties. If Secretary
Conner has Internrefedho election law
correctly, the sooner this Is Known the
better. In order that future complica
tions may be avoided and the law re
vised If revision proves necessary.
It Is safe to say that the framers of
i the law had no Intention of allowing
1 the nomination of men for ofllco who
' do not fulfill all tho qualifications of a
voter. If carelessness or oversight has
resulted In a law falling the objects In
tended, there Is but ona thing to do.
The determination of tho Republicans
to obtain an Interpretation of tho sec
tion under discussion serves the best
Interests of every voter In' the Fourth
District at the special election and ot
voters throughout the Territory at fu
ture elections. No man, however
strong his belief In, a candidate's quail
flcatlons cares to have his vote waited,
The voters should know the law, not
as It Is Interpreted by Individuals, but
as established beyond question by rul
ings of the court of last resort.
It Is a recognized principle of the
Republican party that It shall deal
fairly with nil men. It Is an honest
party eedklng the vote of the peoplo by
honest methods. It will gain more-ln
the esteem of the people of this Terri
tory by straightforward nrtlon on the
technicality now under discussion than
could possibly be hoped for by .evading
the Issue and conducting a campaign
with Mr. Dreler's probablo disqualifi
cation an Issue, Honesty Is the best
policy In politics as well as business.
New York Journal of Commerce.
Tho Senato Committee on Immigra
tion Is about to report a bill embody
ing the views of Representatives and
Senators from tho Pacific Coast on tho
question of Chlncso exclusion, The
fact Is notorious that these views nre
merely a reflex ot popular clamor, and
aro opposed by a considerable body of
Intelligent public opinion In California,
Oregon and Washington. The Cham
ber of Commerce and the Merchants
Exchange of San Francisco havo
adopted resolutions In emphatic con-
trndli'tlon to them, and a San Francis
co weekly newspaper Is responsible
for tho statement that tho fury of thol
antl-umncso cry Una bad IU day, and
the time is not far distant when Con
gressmen will find no popularity In
pandering to It. Why tho admission
of the exempt classes of Chinese Im
migrants, which Is tho only question
under discussion, should bo treated as
affecting only tho Pacific Coast, Is not
at nil clear. In tho cotton manufactur
ing States of the South and of New
England the preservation and expan
sion of the present trade with Chln.i
Is n matter of vital necessity, and that
act nns uecn stated with sufficient
emphasis beforo tho Senate Commit-
teo on Immigration by representatives
from both sections. Tho prosperity of
an Important branch of New York bus
iness Is dependent on the contlmmnco
of that trade, and to the approaching
demand from a rclnvlgornted and pro
gressive China for railroad and elec
trical equipment, and for all the Innu
merable products of our mechanical
Industry likely to secure n market
among thrc'o or four hundred millions
of people, the workshops of the United
states must look for an outlet for their
surplus. Tho San Francisco Chamber
of Commerce, therefore, expresses n
sentiment which should find an echo
In every Important commercial and In
dustrial center of tho country In de
claring It to be of tho utmost Impor
tance that all facilities ot commerce
and the courtesies duo to a friendly
nation should bo extended to thnt clasb
of tho Chinese Empire which oper
ates, controls and has In Itself the
means and power of furthering a
trado which, under favornblo condi
tions and by the assistance of n broad
governmental policy. Is destined to ns
sumo vast proportions. In marked
contrast to the demands of the labor
unions, which are calculated to ex
clude every Chinaman, whatever his
class or occupation, tho San Francisco
merchants have asked for more liberal
legislation than that now existing, "so
as to grant unrestricted entrance Into
the United States to all merchants and
members of tho mcrcnntllo class of
China, such as salesmen, clerks, buy
ers, bookkeepers, accountants, mana
gers. storekeepers, bankers and cash'
Tho Senate Committee has appar
ently accepted tho plea that the so-
called Pacific Coast bill merely crys
tallizes Into law the present practices
and rulings of tho Treasury Depart
niPnt. That Involves tho curious as
sumption that the Department has
been. In Its practices and rulings on
tnis subject, a law unto Itself. As Mr.
unmiin puis u: nio astonishing re
sult Is reached that an administrative
department of tho Government Is de
liuerately violating a treaty by rullng3
which nro as plainly in violation or ex
isting law as of tho treaty Itself, and
ypt tho courts nro powerless to Inter
fere. It Is rather to bo believed that
said bill represents the hopes and as
pirations of the Treasury Department
rather than Its actual practices, and
rulings." It should bo borne In mind
that under the Act of August 18, 1894,
(.mending tho Geary law for which the
pending bill Is offered as a substitute,
all appeals to tho courts from Trcas
my rulings as to Chlncso were taken
away and tho rulings of tho Treasury
Department mado final. The courts
have construed this Act to forbid thlr
taking Jurisdiction, even whero tho dt
clslon of tho Treasury officials or of
the Secretary of tho Treasury on ap
peal is manifestly In disregard of law.
A situation has thus been created
which moved Attorney General Knox
to say, In an opinion given to the Sec
retary of tho Treasury Inst month,
that .incler the peculiar nature and
language of those laws It Is not roii
slble to recognize tho appeal to pon
sideratlons of elementary justice and
humanity, or to bring the case within
the f ropo of an act of cxecullvo clem
ency: "The Chinese Exclusion laws
aro necessarily rigorous and of tho
highest degree of technicality, and do
not permit the Imposition of maxims
(f equity which commend and com-
irur.d judicial authorities to search
wlln scrupulous care for a way to do
Juftlce when the technicalities of tho
law present obstructions." The nroT
cnt Commissioner of Immigration has
distinguished himself by making the
operation pf the Haw ns onnresslvo ns
pomlble, and the absurdity of giving
a kind of despotic authority and final
ity to the nots of himself and His sub
ordlnrtps has" become painfully appar
ent, Tho Idea of crystallizing Into law
a c'lirsp ot procedure which tho commonest-
dictates of Justice condemn
ought to bo too preposterous to re
ceive serious consideration.
It requires no argument to show thnt
the nuestkn of Chinese exclusion can
only be complicated and removed far
ther from any prospect of satisfactory
adjustment by accepting tho dictation
of tho Pacific Const delegation to Con
gree. A majority of that body aro
plainly Influented by tho lowest dic
tates of partisan expediency, and
neither respect for national good faith
nor fj: the legitimate demands of
enmmcico will admit of such a quia
tlon being dealt with In this way. It
Is as tt'iio today as when President Ar
thur, In remonstrating with Congress
against unwlso legislation on this sub
ject, spoke of tho Incalculable future
which depended on our friendly and
nmlcable relations with Asia remain
ing undisturbed, It Is absolutely cer
tain that the policy which Is appar
ently about to receive tho sanction of
vc have to offer arc First Quality Goods at the lowest
possible prices. We have lately received large ship
ments completing our lines.

tho Senate Committee on Immigration
must have a direct tendency to repel
China from us and to drlvo Its trade
and commerce Into more friendly
hnnus. Tho Senate of tho United
States, Itself a co-ordinate branch of
tho treaty-making power, ought to
vlow with special Jealousy any attempt
to Invalidate an existing treaty by the
action of Congress. The only safe and
certainly the only dignified course to
adopt Is to extend the operation of
the present law for two years sO that
It may expire at the Bame tlmo as the
treaty of 1894. Tho treaty can be de
nounced at six months' notice, mid If
It Is sowo shall havo to inako a now
bargain with China on which other
matters of moro Importance than 'ho
exclusion of a few Chlnnmen may de
pend. Wo may conceivably find out to
our cost that If we aro to persist In
treating China In a way that would
not be submitted to by the weakest of
European powers, wo shall be exclud
ed from the benefit of the most favor
ed nation clause of the new commer
cial treaties. The capital and labor
which are now directly dependent on
our export trado to China are entitled
to demand at least as much consider
ation from Congress ns tho profession

Tho Senato yesterday afternoon had
much fun over a minor bll relating to
the Hawaiian coinage, which somii
one dug out of the "calendar" and ask
ed to havo considered. The measuro
was finally passed, but It was not un
til there had been nenrly an hour of
laughlrlg debate over the construction
that should be placed upon one of its
Tin bill provides that tho silver
money tnat was coined by the Hawaii
art Government shall be received at
face luo In payment of all dues of
the Temtory of Hawaii and tho Unit
ed States, but that they shall be retir
ed as rapidly as possible, and replac
ed by United States subsidiary silver
The difficulty arose over the latter
portion of tho provision. The lan
guage of tho measure was that no
seigniorage or mint dues shall be
mado or retained for tho recolnage.
Senator Allison asserted thnt as the
Hawaiian coins contain more stiver
than the United States subsidiary
coins, there would be a seigniorage ot
a tenth on all coins rccolned. He sug
gested that If the Government were
not to receive this It would gp to Ha
waii, and he pointed out that the Gov
ernment claims as Its own nil selgn
lornge for rolnago In this country.
Senator Foraker of Ohio, who wos
the defender of the bill on the floor,
did not agree with this Idea. Sena
tors Hoar, Teller, and others tried
strenuously to convince Mr. Foraker
that Mr. Allison was right, but i-elr
combined efforts failed. He persisted
In asserting that Senator Allison saw
the matter In the wrong light.
Tho Senato finally struck out tho
provision regarding the seigniorage
as If the matter was largely a joke on
Mr. Foraker. Ho murmured his pro
test to those around him that h great
mistake was being made. The bill was
then passed. Washington Times.
