WHAT WOULD YOD THINK?
If you had charged that a mer
chant had bribed you,
And got somo witnesses to think
And during the trial before twclvo
Tho merchant had testified that
the ISO. was n loan;
And the Jury,
After hearing all tho testimony,
lleturneil a verdict of "Not Guilty"
In threo minutes.
What would you think of tho cred
ibility of the testimony or tho man
who was "bribed," and of his "sup
What should lou think?
What ought J on to concludo?
KEY NOTE IS ANTI-AMERICAN.
THR KEY-NOTE of tho nhuslvo
morning-paper outfit Is that THEY
DON'T WANT HAWAII AMERICAN
IZED and they DON'T WANT
AMERICANS IN HAWAII.
They may explain and trim and
abuse and misrepresent: that Is tho
sum and substance of tho whole cam
paign. On no other basis Is It possible to
explain such a monstrous thing as
the editorial commitment of Tuesday
morning. In which the mechanics tit
the Pacific Coast are put on a plane
with thugs, and Honolulu is repre
sented as not wanting them.
To make tho claim that an iota of
decent Americanism Is contained in
Buch a declaration as "HUT CITIZEN
LABOR FROM CALIFORNIA MIGHT
DO THE COMMUNITY MORE HARM
THAN GOOD" or that a Iojnl Amer
ican spirit Is behind It, Is utterly
preposterous. Columns of explana
tion and diverting comment cannot
destroy the Illuminating lorco of
that phrase alone.
No civilized American is such a
ptnhcad as to doubt the purpose of a
person or collection of persons who,
when an Influx of American median-,
ics is In prospect, turn to receive
them with a sneer and vllo abuse and
remark, "It's not tho mechanic; it's
tho farmer we want."
To pick out a few uatrlotic
phrases from the mass of abuse is,
like seeking a bouquet of roses In a
The mornlng-papor outfit DON'T
WANT AMERICANS IN HAWAII,
and THEY KNOW IT.
The only honest -sxplanatlon of
tho attack on the American mechanic
contained in Tuesday's paper is, that
It was a slip of the pen and by
an lnadtertehco exposed tho real pur
poses of the gang that hw fought ev
ery progressive step fji popular
American govoinmenc jn these Isl
ands. They have talked of the benefits
to be gained from tho tourists and
ns soon ns the tourist campaign
promised to bring come results, they
called the tourists "one-lungers."
They l-.ave ,laudad tho Portuguese
as laborers and hittire American citi
zens, v nd Immediately the movement
to la'nd tho Portuguese and Euro
peans In Hawaii w.s vigorously for
warded, they smirched the European
Immigrant by clothing him as tho
They have devoted a few perfunct
ory phrases to Uio blessings Hawaii
would derive froan an increase in the
population ot middle-class Ameri
cans, tho skilled mechanic, tho Amer
ican workman. And tho very first
opportunity that offers they give ed
itorial notice that tho California me
chanic Is not Wanted for Pearl Har
bor work "tbey might do, tho com
munity more Tiarm than good"!!
When they got a few small farm
ers of the typo thoy havo been dis
cussing for the last year or so, these
tame small farmers on arrival In the
Territory may bo expected to recelvo
a volley ot abuse and Blops from the
same old can.
The morning-paper outfit don't
want Americans In Hawaii. They
have fought the Americanization of
Hawaii's government at every step,
and become especially virulent when
the prospect of Increasing tho Amer
ican voting populatiorTof tho IslhndB
seems remotely probablo.

THE FUTURE KAMEHAMEHA.
Young men nml young women go
ing out Into the world nt this nnnl-
ternary period, after jears of careful
preparation, can gain much lnsplra'
tlon for the practical struggles of
life from the career of the great Ka
mehnmeha. Tho first Kamehamcha knew no
such word as fall. We do not know
the Hawaiian word for "can't" but
we doubt that It was ever found in
the utterances of the Hawaiian lead
It Is not ghen to tho south ot to
day to practise the nrts ot war
and gain distinction and power by
the great ph) steal prowess for which
the Kamchameha was noted. But
they have dally duties to perform, as
citizens of a great republic, that call
for an equal degree of determination
and vigor, patriotism and noblo qual-1
ltles of kindly character.
The future Kamchameha of Ha
waii Is tho man who can unite, not
the Islands under one government,
but bring all tho races and national
ities nsscmbled here Into a perfect
union that shall recognize ono God,
one country, one flag, bo free from
prejudice, and by their Intelligence
and sturdy patriotism promoto ou
harmonious government of, by, and
for the people.
We may hope for many Kameha
mehas In the present generation.

The result of tho Loo Let trial for
"bribery" of Chief of Detectives Tay

with the earmarks of a put-up job

Diss Writes of His Efforts to Q.t
Some Road Work Done In His

KMUni. R vnnlncr Tlllllniln
Kindly allow me space In jour valu
able columns to explain my position
concerning my letter published In
our paper or tho 4tn inst. anu Air.

On July 22nd, 1907, I presented a
petition to tho rtnnril nf Sunervlsnrn
to havo Llllha street extension ma

Aug. 1st, 1907. tho macadamizing of

oad and downward towards Wylllo
sttrtt. On Oct. ICth. 1907. that por
tion ot the road was completed, but
tho unnor linrllnn win left In the
snmo condition as previous and up to
the nnuhing ot tho lower portion.

a uamn. you ought to be satisfied,"
nnd I walked away.
On Feb. Dth I communicated with
the Hoard concerning the road and
lights and the reply was, it might be
taken up at. some future date. On
Feb. 8lh I communicated with the
Hoard and complained aboui the Iload

led to tho Doard the manner in which
Mr. Dfrlght answered me to a civil
question. (I annroached Mr. nwieht
on Fort street in front Gt Honolulu
Planing Mill and asked him the fol
lowing "Mr. Dwigbt, when are you
gclng to complete macadamizing Ll
llha Btrect?" and tho answer was
'"lho Hell with Llllha street: wo
don't intend to do a damn thine more
on that road."
Neither ot these eentlemen stnn (-
think what they have said, but Mr.
Hustaco takes the occasion to criti
cize other's doings. No doubt Mr.
Hustaco has had a hotter education
than myself, but, I certainly ha9
dono cverj thing I could in a peaceful
way, but have failed to get anything
from Mr. Hustace.
I am after caual rlshts and n nnnr
man's money Is just as gopd as IT
rich man's money, and the Doard
should not show any discrimination
in any or the public's rights.
In concluding, I beg to say I cer

take a few lessons In letter-writing
from Mr. Hdstace.
Thanking you in advance for vnnr
kindness, I beg to remain.
