The San Kranclsco Chronicle, makes
fl tho very sensible comment tlntt-J'al-V
most the only obstacle to tho p:u
, tuge of the so-called ship subsidy bill
in its present form is its nitpvu, i'ol
ittclans are able to make he "public
believe that It Is a proposal to give
somebody something out of the Na
tional Treasury. It Is nothing of the
Kind. It Is merely n proposal to buy
fcomethlng which all the people who
know anything about the subject,
and a vast majority of those who do
not, declare that they want nt the
lowest price at which It Is possible
to bo got. Nearly all of us agree that
we desire good mall communication
with South America, Asia and Aus
tralia by American ships of reason
able Bpeed and of such construction
und size that they would bo fit for
auxiliary naval service In tlmo of
war. We have no such mall service
und no such ships. We cannot get
them without paying for them. And
the so-called ship subsidy bill merely
proposes to do that."
Just why tho organ of tho Demo
crats and the Civic Kedeiutlon should
Interpret tho Saturday primaries ot
the Republican party us an over
throw for tho Civic Kederatlon is one
of those problems capable of a great
variety of answers.
It requires a very vivid imagina
tion to Interpret the almost Bleep
primaries held in this city nn-l
throughout this County, as In any
measure a contest between any Indi
vidual or combination of Individuals.
In no precinct on this Island does tho
size of the vote cast warrant the con
tention that any particular faction
of the Republican party made n hard
campaign for Its ticket or polled Its
, If it be true thnt the Civic Kedera
tlon candidates In tho Second Pre
cinct of the Kourth District summon
ed their full voting strength to the
primary poll, tho organization In
whose behalf bo much talking Is
done has a numerical power about
fifty per cent, less than has been
credited It by tho most conservative
Tho picture that Is drawn of tho
machine politicians elected to the
Territorial convention is so awfully
nwful thut It is quite ridiculous. We
find that the election of Charlie
Clark, Harry Murray, Cliueme
Crobbe, and four or ilvo others whose
names are not now recalled consti
tutes Iheidellvery of thej Republican

In the Interests of ordinary truth,
the ordinary citizens of Honolulu
luny tako it for grunted that If there
was any deep-laid machine plot to
overthrow anyone ut the Saturday
primary. It was operated so far below
tho surface that a deep-sea political
dredger would be required to bilng
it to light.
The only complaint that can be
raised against tho primaries Is that

not sufficiently, sharrcor exciting to
