Those who have followed tho de

the reason why a newspaper ot the

freedom from racial prejudice has
been upheld, nnd there Is no place
today under the American King where
men and women nio rated with lcs-n
recaid for falcc barriers of race nnd

Idcnts from all putts of the mainland
where prejudices run high, nnd raco
tolerance is more a crime than a vir

to annexation, has materialized. Tho

enough character and power to cor
rect tho harsh faults of the mninlan
der. Those who came to scoff at our
tree and equal mingling of tho races
have remained to admire, and adopt
Hawaii's way as best.
Politically Hawaii Is rcolutlon
Ized. This Territory, though still
lacking in many vital qualities of
Belf-govcrnmcnt, Is a veritable Inml

conditions that prevailed Just before

The distinguishing mark of this

They can find tho Islands on tho
map, and their interest In our pres

value to Hawaii, It is one ot the most
vital protective steps that tho United

It would have been a bundled

formers of Honolulu had dono any
thing but npologlzo for the Indiscre
tions of their "reform" Sheriff.
The present nttltudo is morely ono
ot tho Incidents nt consistent hypoc
risy that has marked tho history ot
the "reformers" since TowBer was a
pup. They can see a "vindication"
in the declaration of n Grand Jury
that the "Indiscretion" of a public
official prevented nn Indictment of a
ilhc-kcepcr with a desire to bribe.
It is tho Kamo old Honolulu story.
The "mornl" mentality of tho hypo
