Anything that means bUBlncss-Uke
progress In dealing with tho leprosy
problem of Hawaii Is hailed by the
people with hopeful enthusiasm.
Just how the details ot tho latest
policy of tho Board ot Health will
work out, time, alone can determine.

and the explanation given by tho

For ono reason or another, tho
work of tho Federal Government In

Is probably on account of tho delays

probable that much Important work

My father seemed to feci that she
was marrying Kmll for his money,"
said MIsb Drcler. "After tlioy wero
married, and when Kmll would como
to tho bouse for money or provisions,
my father plainly showed that bo wat
angry with tho boy, nnd bo usually
refused him money."
"Did you over hear your father ac

After a moment's hesitation Miss
"Why. yes, 1 have." alio Bald. "Ho
said that Kmll would draw on him for
sums ot money without his knowledge
or consent, nnd this angered him
greatly. Ho was also accustomed Jo
complain that Kmll took money u.id
things from tho house."
Miss Drelcr was cool and collected
while on tho witness stand. She gavo
as her reason for not remembering
many things that sho was away a
great part of tho time, and was not
accustomed to bo with tho family to
any great extent. Sho said that sho

Washington, July 23. Tho possibil
ity of n determined light against tho
re-election of Spenkcr Cannon to the
headship of the House, Is beginning
to bo weighed nnd calculated by Re
publicans. There are two possibil
ities; ono, that the House may go
Democratic, tho other, that desplto
tho selection of n Republican House,
Ihcro may bo opposition to tho Speak
er which will put him out of tho run
ning. Might or wrong, Jtmllflnblo or un
Justifiable. It may be set down that
tho Republican management of the
present Ilouso Is emu of tho heavy
burdens thnt the Republican party
must bear in tho coming campaign.
Tho politicians nil concede ns much.
In the West It Is being pointed out
that tho appenranro of tho Speaker
tin tho platform at the national con
vention, to second the nomination of
James 8. Sherman for Yico President
was n brand on tho lco presidential
nominee which labeled him as belong
lng to tho Cannon school of thought
nnd of politics, and thnt will not be
erased. Tho country knows that tho
Cannon clement claims it victory In
tho plntform-innkltig. nnd another vic
tory In the selection of Mr. Sherman
as vlco presidential nominee. Many
friends of Secretary Taft did not want
Sherman named for second plnro;
they wanted n Western man, who
should ho a hostago to Western and
Reports como from various States
that their Republican nominating con
ventions may instruct Ihclr nominees
for tho Ilouso that they shall not eup
port Speaker Cannon to succeed lilnv
self. From u single Western Statu'
comes tho story that In Just half Its
districts tho sc'itlmeiit distinctly fav
ors such a resolution.
Tho fight Is really against tho rules
of tho Ilouso, rather than ngalnst 11
particular group of men In that body
It Is merely the inisfortiino of tho Ho
publicans thnt they have most recent
ly been In control of the Housu; Ilia

Hut tho fact remains that tho conn
try's present .aversion to tho Ilouso
methods ot doing business is pecul
iarly unfortunate for the Republicans
Deserving It or not, the present House
Is regarded ns tho foremost obstacle
to tho enactment of tho "Roosevelt
policies" at tho Inst session. And the
present Ilouso 1 synonymous In the
public mind Crjitalnly In tho mind o.
tho Middle WJ'il "lib the 11111110 of
This. Is the report .which politicians
mid political communications bring'
from the West. There Is no longei
secrecy about tho fact that tho Speak
er personally stepped Into tho breach
und took rhnrgo of the fight to prevent
tho friends ot President Roosevelt nnd
Secretary Taft nominating a Western
man for second placo on tho ticket.
Tho story Is . getting to bo too well
known. Tho Speaker wanted a man
nominated whose namo bliould hu nn
earnest of tho National party's en
dorromcut of thu Cannon icglmu In
thu House; nnd an a member ot his
rules commit! po wns named.
That tho next Ilouso will be eloso Is
conceded on nil sides. Tho posslbll
Itj that II may bo Democratic, do
spllo the election of Secretary Taft,
is constantly discussed among Reiiub
Mean politicians. Such a thing Ih not
without uieeoilcnt. thottch very un
usual. The Presidency and tho House
commonly go together lit Presidential
years. Hut this year tho ilshl over
Houso control Is In n peculiar and un
precedented way a personal tontCBt.
Constituencies are busying themselves
iibout expressing their deelro that the
Cannon regime shall not Do continued.
To pk-dgn n seoro of Republican mem
bers; not to voto again for Cannon
for Speakor would, In nil probability,
make his re-election impossible. And
tho prospect of securing such n num
ber of pledges, and, perhaps, n con
sldcinbly largor nuinbci, Is accounted
decidedly good by Western Republi
cans who bavo recently been keeping
In touch with conditions.
