A Business that is not talked about is as dead as a door-mat
PIAY THE GAME
Shouldn't call on you today t
Business rotten, did you say!
Take a brace then, that's the way,
Play the game!
Though your bank won't loan a
Though your surplus all is lent,
Though your ready money's spent,
Play the game!
Now's the time to clinch your grip
And to stiffen up your lip;
If you falter, you will slip,
Play the game!

National Committeeman A. 0. M. Robertson gavo tho fol
lowing Interview to the II u 1 1 o 1 1 n outlining hlu position on
Hawaii's best policy In the content for the Presidential nomi
nation: "I am decidedly opposed to sending nn Instructed delega
tion f i on) Hawaii to the Republican National Convention. Taft,
Hughes, Cannon and Fornker arc nil good men and each seems
to have considerable backing, but It Is hard to tell what will
develop during the next five months. Senator Foraker tins long
been n firm friend or Hawaii, and his promlnenco In this Pres
idential contest Is of Itself cnougn to require tho Republicans
of Hawaii to remain uncommitted before tho convention meets.
"Speaker Cannon has not been unfriendly to us, nnd his
claims to the nomination at least deserve the deliberate con
sideration of our delegates to the convention. Wo will not
have our primaries till April, but then even It will be too ear
ly to commit ourselves to nny one of tho several candidates.
"I was at tho Democratic convention In 1904 wlion Ha
waii's delegates arrived thero definitely Instructed for Hearst.
It was u foregone conclusion that Hearst could not get tho nom-,
(nation, and the position of the Hawaiian delegation waB n
most unenviable one.
"Tho Republicans should not make a Blmllar blunder. Wo
shall havo only two votes In the National Convention, but In
my Judgment our two delegates, should go there freo to act
when the time comes as may Bcem best for Hnwall's Intorest."

Only Minor Changes In
Organic Act To Be
Made This Year
It Is not probable, according to a
stntcmont made this morning by Gov
ernor Frear, that there will bo any
bill Introduced during tho present
cession of Congress for the general
amendment of tho Organic Act cre
ating tho Territory of Hawaii. Hut
there may be, and probably will be,
a limited number of amendments
made to the Act.
Ono of tho matters which Govern
or Frear had In mind when ho de
parted for the National Capital was
to urge upon Congress to amend tho
Organic Act as regards the section
prohibiting tho lease of agricltural
land for a period greater than live
years. This matter he took up with
tho Department of the Interior and
with certain Congressmen In Wash
ington, with the result that he hopes
nnd believes that nn amendment will
be effected permitting the Territorial
Government to lease agricultural
lend for a period up to 20 years.
The reasons for urging this amend
ment were explained by the Govern
or this morning.
"Thero Is some Government land,"
ho Bald, "fitted for agricultural pur
poses, but perhaps covered with lau
tana or with big rocks. Or It may bo
so located that tho lessee would havo
to cut roads to It. Or possibly the
land might bo barren and useless un
less tho lesseo should construct Irri
gating ditches and bring water onto
"Under such circumstances no man
would lease tho land for n period ot
only flvo years. Rut If tne land
could be leased for a considerably
longer j-p-lnd, tlia Government would
get tho reut a ..J t xes on It.
"Tho bill extending the period for
which agricultural land may be leaf
ed to 20 years has been Introduced
by tho Delcgnte. What tho pros
pects for Its passago aro I cannot
"Another amendment which has
been proposed Is that relating to tho
'ncrcaso In salaries This has tho
backing of tho Bar Association of Ha
waii." Tho Governor stated that a contro
versy had arisen between Congress
i' ml somo of tho departments as to
v.'hother or not bills might bo Intro
ducqd by tho departments directly in
itead of hnvlng'to be put in by somo
particular Representative or Senator.
When tho question first uroso the Sen
nto held that thero was no precedent
for tho Introduction of bills by the
heads of departments, but this was
contested by tho Secretaries, who
showed from the records that for 20
years tho Secretary ot tho Interior had
been introducing bills. Tho matter
wus finally referred to a commltteo
to dotcrmino whether tho practice
should bo allowed In tho future.
It had boon tho Intention to have
