Henry Ilcuterdnhl'B recent re
marks on his criticism of the Navy
that caused such a furore, constitute
a powerful commentary on the agi
tating value of tho newspaper, audi
the Importance of timeliness.
Tho naval artist and writer laughs
at the suggestion of his Ideas being
now. They arc four jcars old. Ills
first magazine article escaped notice.
Tho people then did not know tlioy
had a Navy, and didn't caro much.
Finally he wrote an article for a
newspaper and the people began to
look up. A magazine publisher got
hold of him, nnd the same views re
peated, when the Navy was tho cen
ter of tho world's attention, nroused
the people to n destro for knowledge.
In other words, Reuterdahl, thanks
to the educational work done by his
nowspaper nrtlcles, came Into tho
magazlno field at the ps choIoglc.il
In the midst of all this Koutordahl
talk and criticism of the lighting ca
pacity of our Navy, it Is worth whllo
noting that there Is not n word to bo
tald against the sailing qualities of
these great ships. They havo been
put through n test which the croak
ers said would ho accompanied by
breakdowns and disaster. They havo
kept ahead of schedule and arrived
at the place selected for targot prac

CONTROLLING PUBLIC SBRVIOB
Tho whole country Is watching
the lfughes scheme for controlling
the great publlc-servlco corporations
of New York State. Tho theory
adopted In the Empire State glcs
promise of being an excellent ono.
Practise, has to prove It.
A suggestion from (lovcrnor
Hughes himself, that it is about time
the publlc-Bervlco commissioners uo
Ran to do something besides collect
statistics, is an Indication that the
people hao already beionie restive
over tho extreme deliberation Involv
ed in the new plan that was to bo
vpcedlly rescue them.
Next to prnctlcal working no bet
ter Bourco of Information on the
icope of the commission's labors can
be found than from tho opinion ot
one of tho commissioners. This was
given not long since when Commis
sioner Maltbte ot tho Greater New
York Public Servlco Commission de
livered an addrcsB on "Fair Play for
the Public and for the Corporations"
before a Cincinnati nudlence.
Mr. Mnltblo gave the following as
tho fundamental reasons why gov
ernmental regulation of public-service
corporations has been recognised
as a necessity in all leading countries
of Europe, and why the movement Is
cpreading rapidly in our own land;
(?) Public utilities are necessi
ties; every one miiBt use them.
(2) Public utilities are naturally
(3) Competition docs not ade
quately protect tho interests ot tho
user, the public and the Stato.
(4) Some regulative forco Is nec
essary to take the place ot competi
tion in non-monopolistic Industries.
Mr. Maltblo continued: "Tho Stato
ewes a duty to Its citizens as Invest
ors, and should do nil within Its pow
er to safeguard their property and
reduce to a minimum tho possibility
of fraud, financial manipulation and
misappropriation of funds, lly bo
doing the amount of capital avail
able for public utilities will bo In
creased (the Investor being attract
ed), tho profits demanded by capital
will be reduced owing to the greater
surety ot honest management, and
the publlc-Bervlce corporations taken
put of the speculative class and plac
ed among the best class of invest
ments. "The question has another side.
We owe much to tho corporatlro
Idea, and while tho bad features
should be eliminated, the good fea
tures should bo preserved, and a pro
per system of governmental supervi
sion will not only protect the public
from corporations, but will protect
the corporations from tho dishonest
Fthemes of unprincipled politicians
and hasty legislation.
"These nro facts which stockhold

not forget. If tho present movement
for public control Is defeated, if pres
ent conditions continue, the time
will come when public oulclals, Leg
islatures and courts will be swept off
their feet, nnd such radical measures

"The people are determined to have
their rights, and if they ar not ob
talned In an orderly, fair way, they
will take them by force.
"Yet the public believes In fnlr
dealing, and It the problem Is placed
squarely before them they will sup
port whatever solution Is fair to
them and fair to the corporations."

about one-half of whom nro mem
bers ot tho faculties of tho three
schools, and tho students. Lottcrs
havo been received from members of
Knwalahao and other churches ask
ing thnt they he considered mem
bers of tho Iltshop Memorlnl Church,
Ono ot tho principal reasons for
tho organization of this church Is
thnt of getting Into closer touch
with the outside churches, with a
view of better mutual understand
ing. Many of tho students who have
gone forth from Kanichamcha are
members ot the outside churches and
havo had very little to do with the
school chapel heretofore, lly tho or
ganization of this church, those who
will go out from the, schools will
eventually become members ot tho
Ulshop Memorial Church, with tho
exception perhaps of tho students on
the other Islands. All the students
on this Island, it is said, will be
made members before they come out
from the schools.
At the council cstorday Kev. Win.
11. Oleson, the pioneer principal of
tho Kamejinmeha Schools, was pres
ent and helped materially In tho
work. There wero many delegates
and representatives from the outside
district churches present nnd many
t.uggcsttons wero discussed.
Stanley Livingston, the musical
director of tho schools, was mado
rlerk pro tern, of the council.
The Ulshop Memorial Church will
undoubtedlybecomo ono of tho lead
ing churches In the Islands. The
choir, under the leadership of Mr.
Livingston, will have new songs pre
pared for nexlSundny at Its Instal
lation services. They aro among the
best choir songs that can be found.
The music in Itself will be a draw
ing enrd for the old students, who
cro expected to nttend services moro
regularly than heretofore,
