Hoouevelt by his frequent romlml
erH proves to the people that lie will
not allow Congress to sleep:
The ultimate rtlm of the "Transpor
tation Committee" Is un appeal to
the I-CBlslatuic. anil If the proposi
tion he a Bootl one for the people,
The man who started the fool
yarn regarding the bale of the Mnnnn
Kea railed to recall the fact that this
Ih not a speculation year. Purchases
are made solely for Investment.
It may be unfair to charge the
"good citizen" with complaining
bgalnst the machine, while he re
mains at home Often the fellow
whose machine schemes didn't worl;
mlses the greatest rumpus.
When some men begin to talk
about haole-hnters and political
workers out for pay, they open tholr
mouths so wide that the public real
izes how true It Is that thero are
"kanaka-haters" as well who do not
hesitate to do politics for their own
private benefit. The first man to
raise a warning against race-lino
politics Is the man who Is forever
losterlng such work.
D. W. STEVENS.
The death of D. W. Stevens Is an
Mr. Stevens In his capacity as
counsellor for Japan was so well fit
ted for the special mission at Wash
ington that It seems Impossible
nnother can be raised up to do the
ork as well.
Horn American, he had been so
long associated with the Jftpuiic-jg
that he was particularly equipped to
deal with the delicate subjects In
which success or failure depends so
much upon u thorough understand
ing of national characteristics and
temperament of race.
He was trusted absolutely by the
Njapanese and the people of his na
tive country. Ho was a power for
peace without sacrifice of national
honor. He Was diplomatic without
How far history has been Influ
enced by Mr. Stevens will never bo
known, ns ho was one of the "work
ing force" rulvlslng and assisting the
leaders with whom the llnal decision
rested. We do know that he was .t
calm, dignified character and pos
sessed of high attainments that he
used for the best progress of Japan
and pacific relations with Its nearest
and best neighbor.
APPOINTMENTS AND POLITICS.
The two Federal appointments in
which the people of the- Islands nro
particularly Interested at the present
moment bid fair to give the Terri
tory an exhibition of the Influence
of national politics on appointment))
during a Presidential year.
It la quite possible that the re
appointment of Judgo Kepolknl and
Customs Collector Stackable may
turn on the complexion of the dele
gation to the National nominating
After all has been said regarding
the known applicants for these of
fices, there seems to be no reason
why the present Incumbents should
not be named for another term. The.
opposition to Stackable Is not In tlio
open and therefore cannot be dealt
with, but if there were any very so
rlouB charges to prefer they would
not be kept secret.
As for Kepolkal, he has been at
tacked on most every ground but
that of the righteousness of his de
cisions from the bench. The attacks
have been vigorous enough, and to
one on the outside there appears to
be much of double-dealing. Taken
ns a whale, a weak case has been
made out by the opposition. Fur
thermore, the opponents with notable
exceptions, are marshaled behind an
other's back, afraid to come Into
the open, and that Is not convinc
ing. ' ''
On the other hand, It must bo ad
mitted that other men may be found
who could fill these posts acceptably.

Therefore It Is a situation that
cannot fall to appeal to the human
side of an appointing power that
would bo pleased to have favorable
delegates sent to the National con
vention. To suggest such a possi
bility may be heicsy, but In times ot
political excitement there Is n strong
tendency to lean toward the selllsh
side of human nature.
Such things ought not to be.- It

and there was no lack of reminders
to all members of tho Republican
party that they should be on hand

The wide-awake citizen does not

Another Important Innovation is tho

filled out and signed by tho applicant,
countersigned by tho Bub-preclnct

Mgned by tho secretary. Tho mem
bcr's name, tho number of his card,

An effort has been made by tho com
mltteo that framed tho rules to safe
guard, so far as possible, tho rlghti,
and privileges of Its loya party men,
und to forestall a recuirenco of the
schemes hitherto exploited at prim
arlcs and In nominating convention;
Ulth results that would, If allowed to
contlnuo indefinitely, be disastrous to
the principles of tho party and the
Ights ot Its members.
Section 1C of Article 1 was form
ulated with n view to roward faithful
party service so far as practicable, to
the exclusion of those time-servers
who aro ever tho most clamorous for
and frequently tho most successful in
obtaining party patronage.
Heading the rules carefully yon will
find that In the precinct clubs lies the
rear power as does also tho responsl
blllty for tho party's progress nnd suc
cess or Its demoralization and defeat.
Every officer you elect, every delo
gato you send to a convention, every
resolution or petition you may pass
should bo measured by tho political
standards of nomocracy.
Thus far wo have been fortunato In
tho class of men elected to 1111 public
oinccs, and the record should bo mado
permanent by selection of tho best
qualified men for tho sevoral positions
to be filled.
To do this sincerely wo must each
lay aside his personal prejudices or
ambitions un.l loyally abide by what
is best for the party as a whole.

In conclusion wo beg lo cxprcui the
hontltncnt that thelo never has been
u tlmo In tho annuls of this Territory
so auspicious to tho hopes of our par
ty ns tho present; and thU fact, coup
led with tho party's bright prospects
of victory in tho coming Nr. lonal elec
tion, shuuld atliniilnto diligent effort
en the part of ovcry member- In secur
ing tha application nnd perpetuation
of Democratic principles of govern
ment throughout our Isl-nil Territory
It Is Important thcrrfore that wo
should secure control of both hnuscB

tho opportunity for completing Coun
ty government along lines obtaining
elsewhere under tho American flag.
Relying on join faithful' co-operation
In effoctlng organization and per
forming tho substantial work neces
sary to Insure supremacy of our party
In tho ensuing election, wo remain.
Another Important change which
has been made In the rules Is for
the purpose of preventing political
acrobatic stunts, such as nro per
formed by candidates who are ills-i-ppolnted
by one party and seek con
solation with nnother. This Is cov
ered by tho following rule:
Section 1G. Any member seeking
political office through this party,
before becoming a candidate for
nomination thereto In n Democratic
convention, shall first bo required to
rlgn n pledge that In the event of his
falluro to Becure the desired nomlnn
tlon ho will not thereafter or prior
to tho ensuing election, seek nomt
nation for the same or any other
public ofllco from any other political
party, nor appear as an Independent
or rlvnl candidate for any public of
fice for which a Democratic candl
onto has been duly nominated.
Section 10. A member of the par
ty seeking appointment to n position
In tho government service shnll ad
dress tho Executive Committee of
his club In writing stating tho posi
tion ho desires to fill and his qualifi
cations for tho ha me. Should they
or n, majority of them endorse his
candidacy, he will transmit to the
Central Committee within whose Jur
isdiction the appointment Is to be
made, both Ills' application nnd the
recommendations vt tho l'rcclnct
Committee. When the Central Com
mltteo to whom the matter has been
presented Is satisfied that all appli
cations for tho position nro In their
hands, they shall submit the same or
those n majority of the Commlttco
jin icpommend, to the officer charg

with request that his selection ' bo
