GOVERNOR FREAK'S WORK.
Should tt turn out that Governor
Frear's trip to Washington has been
productive of no other rrsult than
strengthening the cause of Hawaii In
Us application for the Federal appro
priation for the Collcco of Agricul
ture and Mechanic Arts and securing
favorable consideration of an amend-,s
ment of the Immigration law for the
benefit of this Territory, his sojourn
In the capital was well worth while.
It is hard to say which is more 1m-I-ortant
to Hawaii European Immi
gration, transportation, harbor im
provement and fortification, or edu
cation. Thero Is no doubt that the "set
tler" population of these Islands, It
It Is to be built up on the mainland
lines, must come from tho European
centers. And, in order to get tho
people here, Hawaii must be allowed
moro leeway in tho Bollictatlon of
Fettlers than is given under tho pres
ent Immigration law.
To get the people here and at tho
same time provide for intelligent de
velopment In tho lines of industry
they or their children or any others
may take up in the establishment of
permanent homes. Is worthy the best
cflort of the best men of tho country.
Governor Frear Is to bo congratu
lated on tho enthusiasm with which
he has entered Into cooperation with
Hawaii's working force In Washing
ton, and should tile present session
of Congress closo with provision
made for the European Immigrant,
j;he college, the Bteamshtps and tho
harbor Improvements, It will hnvo
done no more for this Territory than
is required to serve the best Interests
of the Nation's development in tho
Governor Frear appears. In the
working-out, to be not a "strenu
ous" Governor but capable of doing
lots of work guided by a level head
and earnest purpose.

CRITICISM OP OCR NAVAL SHIPS.
Discussion of the efficiency of the
American Navy brought out by tho
article published in McClure's mag
azine by Itcuterdahl, Is of a charac
ter to make the people acquainted
wjth the fighting ships on which
they must depend, It nothing more.
One of the Congressmen quoted to
considerable length on the subject Is
Mr. Lllley of Connecticut, with whom
the people of our lerrltory nave a
personal acquaintance. Mr. Lllley
Is disposed to take the critical side
of it. Referring to the differences
that brought about the resignation
of Admiral Ilrownson, Lllley says:
"Our Navy Isn't businesslike; that's
the trouble." Then turning to tho
Ileutcrdahl article the Congressman
tays, "What that writer sajs is true
beyond a doubt. Why, we haven't a
ship In our Navy that Isn't obsolete ;
The writer of that nrtlcle Is right.
The only thing Is that he didn't go
far enough. The trouble with the
Navy is that It has too many general
Of a somewhat different opinion Is
the Scientific American, which Is
generally looked to for expert Infor
mation. Tho American calls tho
magazine-writer a muck-raUcr of the
deepest dye, who alms at something
palatable but not fundamentally
' $ays the Scientific American of tho
principal fcaturo of our ships' alleg
ed weakness: "Semi-submerged ar
mor belts and Insufficient freeboard
will be found to be Just as common
among foreign navies as thoy are in
' our own, provided thoso ships be
compared, which Is tho only honest
way, that were designed at the same
date. And It will bo found that our
own ships have the unquestionable
, advantage of being, ship for ship ana
v'date for date, very nfuch more heav
It Is admitted, however, that Itcu
terdahl Is not entirely wrong, for the
American continues: "At the same
time, It cannot bo donled that some
ot the criticisms In the magazine art
tide referred to, are fatally true.
The blunder of building open ammu
nition hoists to tho large guns ot our
earlier ships was regrettable; and
the stubborn persistence In that

blunder, in the face of continual dis
aster, was absolutely Inexcusable. We
believe that altogether some seventy-
fit c men have been lost In the vari
olic turret disasters; and tho major
ity of these fatalities are directly
chargeable to open ammunition
hoists. Furthermore, there can bo
little doubt that our present bureau
stem is cumbersome. Inefficient,
provocatlvo of a great deal of un
cecmly bickering among the bureau
chiefs, and that many of tho faults
In warship design tire directly tracc
tiblo to this system."
"Progress In the building of our
Navy has been very encouraging. Tho
addition of a largo number of battle
ships nnd armored cruisers to our ef
fective list has brought our Navy up
to tho second position among tho na
vies of tho world. Thero Is, indeed,
no navy in which so largo a propor
tion of the total displacement con
sists of fighting ships ot tho first
class. It was a wise prevision which
led our Navy Department to cease
building unarmorcd csscls, nnd ex
pend Its appropriations upon ships
that can fight in tho line. In this
respect wo havo anticipated by sev
eral years the main feature ot tho
policy which Is now being universal
ly adopted. That policy Includes the
building of big, one-gun battleships;
fast unarmorcd scouts ot 3000 or
4000 tons displacement; destroyers
of sufficient size and power to keep
tho sea in all weather; and submar
ines. We are sadly behind the Other
nations in the number and quality ot
our destroyers, and Congress should
see to It that liberal appropriations
are mado for these vessels. During
the year contracts havo been let for
two 20,000-ton battleships, which

last merged Into the battleship. Wo
pre proceeding cautiously In the mat
ter of installing turbines In our war
ships. The progress of foreign nav
ies has been, without exception, In
the direction or building large ships,
mounting not moro than ono or two
caliber? ot big guns. Great Britain
Is building six Improved "Dread
noughts;" France, six 18, 400-ton
battleships armed with four 12's and
twelve 9.4's; Germany, four 19, 000

its last word of criticism for the

of In our Navy, as compared with
others, Is that wo havo nn aggrega
