Wo hope tho Delegate Is wholly
correct, but thero Is leuson to belloa
that the meusnro will have to face
severe opposition. I
In this connection the people of
Hawaii, interested In securing Kuro
penns for thu Islands, Bhould bear In
mind tho fact that the opposition In
Washington will Hud particular nld
and comfort in the published state
ments from Hawaii that are obvious
ly lntondod to discredit the move
ment. Tho representatives of tho Tcrrl
tor while fuclng a general opposi
tion f loin antagonistic Interests of
the niulnlnnd, will 11 ml (incited
against them published statements
that may be usod as material for
questioning the good faith of lending
interests in the 'leriltory. The fuel
that the stat MiicutB are misrepresen
tations will l ot rhnnge tne result.
Outside tlit foitlllcntlon incasiuc
there Is nothing boforo Congress to
cav of more Importance' to the future
of tho Territory of Hawaii than this
It should luvu a unnulmouH bnest -
Ing from Hawaii, for the opposition
may bo strong.
THE WAR TALL
Thero can bo no doubt that the
"yellows" of I ho mainland lire doing
tKelr utmost to work up a war scare.
Every movement of a military or na
val officer 13 followed with Its pos
sible reference to war. Shipments of
arms nnd munlttoiiB, which under
ordinary conditions would not war
rant passing attention, uie recorded
In luigo type.
The unpleasant feature about thU
is that It directs tho thought of tho
people to channels that might belter
ho avoided. For, when tho bober
Judgment of the country Is appealed
to, the Invariable reapoutu Is that
there Is no prospect of war between
the United -titntes and Japan, al
though theiu may bo happenings In,
China that will bring nliuut armed
Intervention of some Ulna. 1
Whore Hawaii Buffets Is In the fear
which constant reading of war alarms
engenders In peoplo who might other

months' stay. They look on Knwnti
us the probable center of tho troublos
of the Pnclllc, and they havo n very
much exaggerated ldcaor tho trou

RELATIVE MORTALITY OF BOYS
AND GIRLS DEMONSTRATED.
Mount Carlo, .Inn. 15. Dr. Fran
cis Wnrner of tho Child Study So
ciety suys thnt although In 1905 57
per cent, of tho births In this coun
try were boys, the denth rale among
boy babies wa3 so much higher than
among tho girls tliut of the 5-year-ojit
children nllvo nt that tlmo only
43 per cent, were boys.
Further statistics quoted by ,Dr.
Warner showed that 27 per cent, of
hoys born died In their first year,
whercnj only 22 per cent, of tho girl
Iinblc3 succumbed In the samo period.
Dr. Warner utcounted for tho pre
ponderance of females oer ninleB 111
L'tigland nnd Wales by the fact that
although more boy babies were born,
a much lnrger proportion of uialcs
than females had some physical de
fect. Fiom minute examination of
thousands of children Dr. Winner
found that 9 per cent, ot the bojs
had somo physical defect, us com
pared with only 7 per cent. In tho
Tho lecturer pointed out that In a
children's medical ward practically
nil Hie chlldten had somo physical
defect, nnd nmong' these children
with defects tho mortality wns npt
to bo higher In tho cnto of tho glrU
than of the boys. From this It was
deducted that while the female sex
apparently nppioaches closer to nor
mality than tho male, yet when ab
normalities are found equally In the
two sexes tho lesser vitality of tho
girl will causo her to break down un
der any added strain ymner limit tho
Dr. Winnei snld Hint wherein tho
male sex supplied the great majority
of cilmlunls, yet In tho number of
murders complicated by lunacy wom

leaving out entirely cases of Infanti
