Inciease of the National Ouaril to
a full-sized teclment will have a
good effect on the service In Hawaii
by bringing in a larger representa
tion from the outside districts.

nish another opportunity for San

to lot them stay free If they so de

The recent cablegram reports Indi

Delegate Kuhlo Is a member of
tho House Committee on Territories
at the request of tho Committee's
chairman. That's a pretty good rec
ommendation of the desire of the
Committee that Hawaii be repre
hented. Senator Hale's proposal to Inciease
the pay of tho men in tho Navy Is
good. As to tho technicalities of thn
'consideration due officers of tho line
and those not officers of tho line, all
the people want Is a decision that
will assuredly lncrcaso tho clllclency
of tho American Navy.
KUHIO'S COMMITTEE PLACE.
The extracts from the Congression

a quietus on all political campaigns
that were hatching as a result of
Speaker Cannon's fulluro to appoint
Delegate Kuhlo to the House Com
mittee on Territories.
Hnwall's Delegate though left oft
the Speaker's slate gained member
(hip by tho unanimous consent of his
fellow Congressmen and possibly
strengthens his position as a result.
It Is quite probable that the. plan of
finally placing Kuhlo on tho commit
tee was understood before tho ap
pointments were made. Not having
a vote In tho House or In tho Com
mittee, the Dulegate could well af
ford to gho way to the deslro of tho
Speaker to place a voting friend on

IntorestB are being well guarded at
Washington and tho Territory's
friends have not become less.
