FIELD FOR PROMOTION
Tho visit of tho Tleet has brought
out the fact that the distribution of
a good number of Honolulu photo
graphs among tho leading newspapers
and newspaper syndicates of the
country would be a first-class invest
ment for the Tcirltory. Tho Pro
motion Committee could well take
the matter In hand.
Tho majority of the largo news
papers had their Honolulu photo
graphs prepared In advance, so that
tho Illustrations might accompany
the Honolulu dispatches received dur
ing the stay of tho Fleet in this port.
Some of the Illustrations appealing

He'rnld syndicate, which was one of
the least of the offenders, sent out
pictures of a Fort sttcet scene taken
during the dais of tho old mulo
tram-cars. The bobtail tram of
J cars ago was forced on tho readers
attention like a toie thumb.
Local correspondents aro usually
supposed to look after the needs of
their papers In this respect and pos

IAUKEA AND THE "REFORMERS "
The leport of the Grand Jury after
a ruicful investigation of Sheriff Iau
kc.t'B relations with ono Isoi should
confirm the Sheriff In the belief that
the II u 1 I e 1 1 n was quite right in
suggesting that he should resign his
In the fiist place, the Sheriff had
mixed himself up so insulfernbly that
the Gland Jury appears to have gone
r.t the case with a view to bringing
n cilminal charge against him.' The
leport of tho Jurors savs "that nu
criminal charge can be made against
Sheriff laukea, as the evldenco does
not wairant It."
This is the first direct Intimation,
so far as wo nro aware, that tho enso
vtas so deeply Involved that It was
believed to bo possible to hold tho
"reform" Sheriff under n criminal In
dictment. TliM In itself would indicate that
the agent of tho reformation was, to
say tho least, not an artist in hand
ling tho business of police adminis
tration. Hut the Grand Jury sajs more.
Tho investigators find that Isoi was
undoubtedly well-meaning in his de
sire to bribe tho Sheriff, "but in view
of the indiscreet conduct of Sheriff
laukea, both in this attempted brib
ery and with regard to his prior
transaction the borrowing of $100.
an indictment could not be secured
Could anything bo more lidlculous
than the Intel prctntlon of this, by
tho apologists for laukea, as a "vln
dltntinn"? The ordinary public will probably
lead this ccerpt fiom the findings
of the Grand Jury as sufficient proof
of the Incompetence of the Sheriff. If
that paragraph does not mean to con
vey that a briber might lmvo been
brought to justice had it not been for
the bungling of tho Sheriff the in
discretion of borrowing $100. riom n
proper object of pollco surveillance
then the man who wrote It did not
use his words advisedly.

It Is curprising that peoplo with
such a reroid behind them can tako
such a stand and keep a straight face.
The Grand Jury, which held
to the criminal side of the ques

Sheriff appropriate. An officer whoso

do in the way of reform, what do ou
think the Attorney General of tho
United States will say?
What would Roosevelt say?
Perhaps the guardians of our mor
als will Indeed do even so foollch a
thing as to present tho laukea iccord
as an additional charge ngulnst
Ureckons. Many silly things havo
been done. One of tho remarkable
features of the whole affair Is the
seraphic calm with which the self-appointed
"moral" censors havo viewed
this whole incident. Their silence Is
intensified because of tho wholesalo
campaign of malice they have at var
ious times conducted against repu
table citizens of the Territory nnd
competent officials of tho Territory
and County who hnd tho courago of
conviction and performed their duty
without fear or favor.

Hotli of these expectations have been

It is nevertheless a fact that month

have secured passports on false pre

the figures of outgoing Japanese havo

larger than either tho Japanese or
