Prohibition of tho liquor trafuc hr
never been an) thing but a peculiar
form of local option, and a mighty
poor one at that.
Wc trust that tho Japancso immi
gration matter Is ludeed settled. A
new rumor ccrj three months does
not help cither Japan or America.
There Is no cause to arguo tho su
j perlor advantage of a regiment of
cavalry on the Lellehun lands. Tho
campaign to turn these lands back
to the Territory has gone glimmering.
President Roosevelt Is ready to
take all the responsibility for the
large naval appropriation needed for
four battleships. Congress Bhoultl
gain wisdom and ote him tho privi
lege. Uecl-stiRar people have won their
fight against Hawaii. Presumably
they will reward the enemies of tho
Territory In this elty who nsslsted
their effort to discredit European Im
migrants. What the Republican party most
needs Is work In tho precincts In or
der that desirable candidates may bo
ghen proper support Tho party hns
never lacked for a strong numerical
force of candidates.
If the business Interests of Hawaii
were honestly In favor of the Euro
pean Immigration amendment, tho
record is very clear on who, in Ha
waii', rendered assistance to the beet
nugar men who beat the amendment.

No one has yet arisen with n good
teabon wh Hawaii's delegates to tho
National Republican Convention
thould not support Taft for Presi
dent. Taft Is In the "big-American"
i'Iuxs, und big Americans arc the sal
vation of the country In tho Pacltic.
Just what value Prohibition has to
Hawaii except as a bludgeon In tho
hands of a few Individuals is not ap
parent. Not one per cent, of tho
population of the Islands want Pro
hibition, and half of that one per
ut. don't know what they aro talk
I.. L. McCandless sajs that the
plneapplerlndustry will boon outstrip
sugar In Importance to Hawaii. This
will be tiue if tho protective tarifT
is not changed. And thus is an op
portunity presented tho Democrats ot
declailng against tat iff revision and
not repeating tho error ot tho rovls

JAPANESE AND AMERICA'S
POLICY IN THE ORIENT.
Tile American policy In tho Orient
and the meaning of tho tour ot tho
Fleet to theBO waters Is treated to o
now explanation every day. Our
Government Bays llttlo or nothing
Tho peoplo of our own and of other
nations furnish tho variety of rea

of Japan being credited by practi

In this connection tho Japan Ga
zette publishes an editorial on the
present "military expansion" of
Amorlca, which Is a wcll-temporod
statement of fact with reasonable
conclusions. Tho Guzcttc, after not

actions. Hut In order that such tran
sections mas be undertaken secure
ly or. In other words, that tho recog
nized rules for fair treatment ot
those engaged lit those transactions
liny bo susceptible of enforcement, it
necessary, American and other States
realize that It Is necessary to be ablo
to Impose those rules If they be de
fied. This Is the explanation of In
creased armaments all the world ov
er. The various nations aro unfor
tunately not at the same stage of de
velopment. If they were. It may bo
freely asserted that all would agrco
upon a foreign policy which would
preclude the necessity of tho reserva
tion ot a gigantic military '"gold ro

as communities and Individuals, ad
vance In 'echelon' or ono In ndvnnco
or In tho rear of the other, so that
thu obligation Is laid upon the stron
ger morally, to make -provision
against the possible attacks of tin

Theodore Roosevelt that tho United
States has somewhat tardily realized
this obligation. Tho fact Is appar
ently tho explanation and the Justi
fication ot the rather dramatic crulso

Japan, Manila and Australia, thence
