The concieto suggestions presented

committee of the Democratic organ'
Izutlon offer nothing cry soilously
liarmful In connection with tho pub-Jlc-laml
policy. Tho good suggestions
nrc offM-t by propositions that will
(il lest development.
To wipe out the privilege of ex
changing public laud would caiibO
much delay In cirri Ing out ninny
projects most desirable for general
development. Tho authority lodged
in the executive oflkeis of tho Terri
tory In this connection Is hoemuhat
extraordinary, but since It has not
been used recklessly It may bo con
sidered as beneficial.
Schemes for promoting homestead
ers and destroying the speculative
feature are timely. We need tho
homesteader and cannot afford to
iillenlze tho land.
Tho method by which the petition
ers would bring about the general
land-law reform Is roundabout mid
will not best meet the situation. An
amendment of the laws by tho Terri
torial Legislature and approved by
tho rederal uutliorltj Is n quick and
practical scheme of procedure.
All admit that tho land laws re-
ipilro amendment to meet changing
conditions. Until such time, how
ever, as the peoplo of the Islands
have proved their Incapacity for local
Eolf-governmcnt, wo would not refue
them the oppoitunlty of doing their
own legislating, ecn In lands.
The Republican policy is self-reliance.
Thus far Congrots has fouud
us capable. Why suggest a change
from the old-fashioned doctrine of
doing for ourselves on the American
plan, subject to the ratification of
the lovlcwlng authority?

Tho wholo thing is so obvious, so
unnecessary of argument, that tho
only suggestion of its being moment
ous Is the fuct that It was selected on
such an occasion ns the leading text
of the Chief Kxecutlvo's addrcts.
It Is lemarkable that tho Governor
of the Territory should feel that It
might ho Hcpubllcan heresy to sug
gest that a citizen should consider
first of ever thing on earth, his duty
to his country.
'Tor that reason (he Only explana
tion possible of some portions of Gov
ernor Frear's address Is that ho spoke
without carefully selecting his words,
and did not have sufficient tlmo to

The practical result of his words

of the Hcpubllcan party, and wo

TO ESCAPE BRIG
On arrival at this port yesterday,

und connived In tho escape, ns ho
went down n stern lino to the wharf.
Marcovltch was a stowaway picked
up nt Suva, who said ho was n Hono

He was being retained In the brig
until he could bo tried nt Vancouver.

The porthole wnsoo high for n
much taller man thnn Marcovltch to

could have made It by having a lino
dropped him from the deck.
A number of passengers on board
had wanted to pay tho passage of tho
