very different among the young Chlu-use-Americans
Although (he Republican National
Committee has allowed the Territory
of Hawaii a representation of only
two delegates and two alternates to
the National nominating cumontlon,
there la no special reason why this
Territory should give up the light
lor a representation of six delegates
The decision of tho National Com
mittee is not necessarily bliidlngf
l'he convention determines who and
how many shall constitute us mem
bership. It would be entirely proper for
the convention of this Territory to
rend tlx delegates to Chicago and
ask their udmlsslon as members of
the National convention. Then Ha
waii's case, ns well as that of other
'territories of the country, would he
heard before tho committee on cre
dentials nnd brought beforo tho con
cntlon for final action.
Should the Territory fall in seat
ing the six, It would not lose the
two. It has all to gain and nothing
H1WAIJ TRADE WITH MAINLAND
AND JA AN.
Hawaii did not ship as much do
mestic merchandise from tile main
land during the month of November,
1907, ns In November or 1906. Yet
tho valuo of the merchandise shipped
tiom the mainland for tho cloven
months ending last November exceeds
that of the same period In 19UG by
over two millions of dollars.
This Is the record shown by the
latest statistical table issued by tho
Uepartment of Commerce and Labor. ,
Tho total valuo for November. 190(5,
is 1,3G9,19S., and for November, I
1907, it Is 11,207000. Tho figure!
for the eleven-month period ending
in November are as follows for tho
last three years: MOB, J1O.S20,
337.; 190C, S11.3C4.38C; 1907, $13.
939, 9GG. This Is a pretty good show
ing for a section of tho country
which a few croakers my Is "going
During the samo period we also
increased our shipments or merchan
dise to the mainland. We sent mer
chandise valued at Jl, 039. (110. in the
month of November, 1900, and $2,-1
192,322. In November, 1907. The
lecord for the eleven-month period'
Is 1906, 128,731,878.; 1907, J31,-
The monthly lucrenne for fruits
nlono was over twcnty-flvo thousand
dollars and the Increase for the
eleven months was moro than two
hundred thousand dollars. The larg

In tho tables devoted to Hawall'r
shipments fiom foreign countries we,
find that our shipments rrom Japan

figures are: November, 1906, il,-

GOVERNMENT BY MURDER
Tho' tragedy t Lisbon Hi which

of tlio horrors of anarchy.

pe.nm.ige. It Is terrorism puro nnd
simple A sorrowing people may
take tho life of the assassin, but this
cannot bring hack life to those whose
careers promised po much for their
country. Tho net of tho murderers
is the worst form of human sacrifice,
and anj thing that can be done in tho
wa) of redress seems llttlo more thnn
an net of impotent rage.
Tho sympathy of tho civilized
world goes to the sorrowing family of
t'ortugal and the loyal poojilo of that
nation. Tho history of tho Portu
guese peoplo has never been one of
piogrcss by murder, nnd It Is Quite
to be expected that this (errlblo trag

hitherto antagonistic, fn the common
cause of protecting their country
from the enemy oi mankind anar

form of government nro well nwnro
that In this day nnd generation wan

It would seem that this sacrlflco
thould bring the nations of the world
together lu a tnoro effective move
ment to wlpo out government by
I murder, which Is tho practical result
I of anarchy, though tho theoretical
teachings may sound less harsh.
Wo nro reminded of tho forgetful-
ness of tho public by the fact that
aitnougn our own President was
struck down by tho hand or an as
sassin, the United States Congress
has thus far failed to pass a Federal
law which deals with perrons who
seek tho life of tho highest officer of
tho Government. Representative
Minefield Is tho only member of
Congress who term lifter term has
introduced nnd reintroduced a bill
providing for the protection of tho

it Is satisfactory.

For tho soke of harmony under Hi.
