China's strategy will be to get In
tut of the wet when It rains.
It will be good practise for Hawaii
to work with other Territories, and
thereby get people out ot tlio habit of
thinking of Hawaii as a "possession. '
Uctween Ilonlne, Holmes and Ford,
the Hawaiian Islanils arc due to
rome before thousands of people In a
manner to make them most attract
ive to the traveler.
Lack of money will el'olio most
any boom. Advancing sugar prices
can result In a few alr-castlea on
what will certainly happen If tbls
thing keeps up.
Secretary Wood says Hawaii Is get
ting more than Its share of tourists
when compared with the usual tour
ist centers. "Glory Halleluiah!" Is
all Hawaii can say to that.
Mall advices announce that It was
the Chicago anarchist, not the Chi
cago Chief of Police, who was killed.
Honolulu apologizes for killing the
wrong man and extends congratula
tions to the Chief.
A delegation of twelve delegates
and alternates for the Nntlonal lie
rubllcan Convention should 4nake the
representation loige enough to In-V
elude all who have the price of tho
trip and want to go.
When Congress appropriates for
lie building, Hawaii should by nil
ueins provide the exhibit for tho
i. e.i t Seattle fair. The Northwest is
not only a near neighbor It Is In
the good-neighbor class.
Koosevelt and Root have so unro
ervedly endorsed Judge Wllfley that
Congress can hardly Impeach him
without Including tho President nf
the United States. This means that
Hawaii's former reform Attorney
General will probably have to back

HAWAII AND CONVENTION
National Committeeman Hobertson
recommends that the Republicans of
this Territory Join with the Repub
licans ot Arizona and New Mexico In
the demand for six delegates for each
Territory in tho National Republican
Mr. Robertson's ndvlco Is good.
The Natlonnl Committee, probably
influenced by the argument that tho
Territories cast no vote for Presi
dent, reduced the representation of
Iho Territory to tho lowest figure.
It this argument Is a good one, tho
representation of tho Southern States
fhould be reduced to the very lowest
mark. There has never been a year
flnco the Republican party was or
ganized that tho so-called Southern
States have sent a Republican to tho
electoral coflcge to assist In nnmlng
the President of the United State .
These States, however, have been an
ever-present factor In naming the
Republican candidates for President.
If It be urged that the Territories
may end delegates of less ability and
political acumen than may be re
turned by the States, It Is proper
for the Territory of Hawaii to plead
not guilty" and point to the good
character of Its delegations as proof
that tho Republican conventions of
this Territory turn out as good men
as any average State, and far better
In asking that six delegates be
seated in the convention, Hawaii Re
publicans will have all to gain and
nothing to loso.
Two delegates and two alternates
will bo allowed by the convention.
That Is certain. The convention will
not reduce the number named In the
call of the National Committee. And
it Is quite probable that the conven
tion -will, on proper representation ot
