Soon the calls for primary elec
tions will be Issued, nntl the citizen

duty or stay at home and noisily
complain over what ho thtnkB tho
workers should h "o done.
We doubt that the morning paper
fools many Hawallans all the time.
A paper that has assailed tho Ha
waiian people o bitterly can hardly
be classed as a proper medium for
fair counsel or trustworthy sugges
tion. If Hawaii County's first Hoard of
Supervisors Is a sample of results
with plantation managers on the
Doard, comparison with the present
should impress the people with the
value of carrying a few business
leaders for ballast.
No, the 11 u 1 1 c 1 1 n has not decid
ed that Judge Kepolkal Is guilty as
charged. From the one-sided evi
dence thus far produced, It appears
that the Judge must otter strong and
hard-hitting refutation In order to
retain public confidence.
The people worrying over need of
Hawaiian-Americans for a new lead
er may be expected to trot forth a
Moses of their own selection In due
time. As usual, this political Moses
will be on the look-out for the favor
of the people until ho has used them
to feather his own nest.
There was a time when Hawaiian
Societies were looked upon as politi
cal mediums. This Idea, wrong In
the first place, Is fully exploded by
tho Increase In tho number of the
Societies. There are too many inde-1
pendent organizations to make it pos-'
slble for politicians to upset the pur-t
poses for which they are founded and
use them as political machines.
Talk about the difficulty of getting
acquainted with Hawaiian names. A
Qalnesvllle, Ohio, paper states that
W. C. McDeflagle was one of the del
egates to the Democratic convention
from Hawaii. Another hit it a little
closer by calling him McDonagle.
And all this mix-up with our old
friend McGonagle, whose name ought
not to be foreign to a good share of
the mainland population.

poses. Hawaii's enemies on the
mainland, like their supporters with
in the Territory, frequently inako in
sertions that cause a query whether
they are fools or simply crazy. Ha
waii has never enjoyed n dollar of re
mitted custom-house duties. This
''advantnge" Is of the same order as
the "contract labor" that enemies of
Hawaii have endeavored to manufac
ture from the European-labor moe
ment. It Is refreshing to sec that tho mas
ters of the Coast yachts resent the
censure that tho disappointed ones
pour on tho head of the luckless Cap
tain Harris. Competitors as a rule
are npt to be more fair than outside
critics, who often don't Know any
thing about the matter In question.
To them tho man who loses is no use
and the victor n genius. We don't
know the actual mileage sailed, but,
granted it to be about equal for all,
the differences In time per mile will
be about forty seconds between tho
winner and tho last boat, and that
doesn't appear to be so bad. Garden
That's right. The least that Is
said of defeat the better, especially
when entertaining the victors. The
talk of the present day should bo con
fined to: How to win the next race.
WHO WROTE THAT LEITER?
Frederick Palmer has written for
Collier's Weekly n sketch of Admiral
Sperry, the "New 'Old Man' of tho
Fleet." Honolulu having seen the Ad
miral and his Fleet and formed its
own very favorable opinion, we shall
not occupy space with the wholo ar
ticle. Incidents have arisen, how
ever. In connection with this city's
relations with the Fleet that will
make tho following excerpt of moro
than ordinary moment:

hertlons. Kvnns left n happy
licet, with the enlistment roll full.
He made Jack work, hut consid
ered Bhore liberty his right nnd
amusement his prerogative as
much as n landsman's.
When Sperry iccclvcd n letter
from an American port, not on tho
mainland, bo It said In Justice,
asking what measures would bo
taken to prevent scoundrcllsm by
tho sailors, ho remarked:
"I'll wait three or four dajs
before I nnswer that letter. I
don't want to say anything Bav
nge. I want to he polite."
In tho first speech ho made aft
er he took command lie said that
tho American bluejackets behaved
well because they were gentle
men. How Impossible that would
sound on the lips of a European
Admiral! It would bo considered
utterly suhvorslvo of discipline.
In Europe gentlemen horn are of
ficers and nil the seamen belong
to the distinctively "lower class
es," especially In Russia.
Now where did thnt letter corr.o
from? What official of what city
not of thomalnland, wrote the Ail
mlral of tho Atlantic Fleet asking
him what to do to prevent scoundrel
ism of his sailors?
Troy (N. Y.) Record
Secretary of the Interior Garfield
has returned from Hawaii, where he
spent some days Inquiring Into tho
condition of affairs In tho Insular pos
session. Tho official has announced
that he was Impressed with tho
American spirit thnt Is the rule In
tho Islands, and also with tho Ki cat
lesources of tho group.
The people of the United States nro
now wondering over their ignornuco
of tho geography of the Pacific Ocean
a quarter century ago. Probably 90
per cent, of our inhabitants then
knew us llttlo of the Hawaiian Isl
ands nnd other now well-known
groups an they did of tho northern
part of Alaska, At the time tho lato
King Knlakaua announced that ho in
tended to visit tho United States, our
pcoplo roared with laughter over tho
thought of tho ruler of a country
where cannibalism had been In evi
dence Borne years before, seeking tho
pleasures of civilization. Many of
our folk had an idea that Knlakaua
had a ring In his nose, nnd that ho
woro his hair In curl papors. Hut
when tho dusky sovereign reached
San Frnnclbco, tho public quickly
learned thnt ho was qulto a civilized
person. While ho was somewhat of n
rounder, he demonstrated that ho was
not a savage.

Editor Evening H u 1 1 c 1 1 n :
Who hns appointed the editor of tho
P. C. Ad;crtlser arbiter of the desti
nies of tho Hawaiian race? Why docs
ho think It necessary about every
threo months to Issue a veiled warn
ing to a people, almost homeless' In
their own dear country, that, It thoy
presume to hand themselves together
for self-protection against tho arro
gant domination of tho old yhlto
clique, thnt the right of franchise
will be taken away from them? Tho
Hnwallan Is not and never was re
vengeful In his Inclinations or habits;
If ho had been, the history of these
Islnnds would hac been changed fif
ty years ago, when the native had
nothing to fear but his Intemperate
generosity toward tho white man;
how much less Is he likely to commit
overt acts of reenge when his coun
try Is but nn Integral part of n great
republic and his own monarchy
Bwlftly becoming a memory of things
that nro past.
If the missionaries, who first came
to these Islands, had given tho na
tives n sound, practical English edu
cation; If they had inculcated the
spirit of Industry, Instead of cooking
ui a. curio language In order that
they might tcaih them tho wonders
of tho Old Testament, threo genera
tions ago tho Hawaiian youth would
havo been capable of taking his place
In world affairs. Hut why should ho
not now begin to emancipate himself
from tho boxes of the paBt? What
good reason Is there why ocry Ha
waiian man nnd boy should not do
his utmost to prosene tho dignity
nnd Integrity of his race? What Is
there In the conduct of tho present
Territorial Administration, or in tho
thought and intent of the editor of
the P. C. Advertiser nnd those for
whom ho speaks, that holds an atom
of encourngoment to tho Hawaiian,
cither old or young? Tho Hnwallan
docs not hato his haole brother, but
he Is at last awakening to tho fact
that unless ho asserts himself quickly
nnd vigorously, oblivion yawns wide
open for him.
