Japincsc birth statistics may nlso
be made Impressive from a scare
standpoint If further facts are not
taken Into consideration.
One of the IU1 facts of tho situa
tion Is that a large percentage of the
Japanese born here do not remain.
The statistics of arrivals and depart

that it is the established policy of tho
Japancso to send their children back
to their home country. The figures
for the three jears nnd a half end

TWO OLD DIVORCE
Ilecauso of their marked similarity,
two divorce cntos which have been
filed In the Circuit Court hnvu been
greatly commented on this morning.
Some tlmo ago Dr N. S. Fnlrvveather
started suit for dlvorco against his
wife, Corliine, nnd nt about tho same
tlmo James U Mcdulro commenced
suit against Ills wife, Norn Mcflulro.
Later on discontinuances were filed
In both cases, and It was thought that
they were ended TIiIb, however, it
Bccms was nut to be.

outfit has not n leg to stand on. The
proposition is opposed to evciy Amer

attitude of the American Government;
toward any people or an tcrrltnr
that has come under the Ping. It Is
not nought by any reputable element
within tho Territory. And there Is
not tho slightest necessity for any
bucIi reversion to governmental dark
ness and error.
Aside fiom their insulting attitude
to tho present electorate of tho Tei-
iltor, tho local advocates of Govern
ment by Commission must ntsume
fiom the" veiy outset that the prin
ciples of American government are a
failure. If they aro n success, and
government of by, nnd for the peo
ple Is right, and out public schools
are all that we claim for them, then

ulation of these Islands.

HAWAII'S JAPANESE CHILDREN.
The basis from which the promo
ters of Government by Commission
ore working is the alleged threat,
that the Japanese children who aro
growing up In the Territory and may
accept the privilege ot voting, will
eventually swamp the electorate, get
all the offices, and shape legislation
antagonistic to American Interests.
Since Hawaii contains such a pre
dominance ot Japanese laborers, it is
easy for an one who has not the sta
tistics at hand to swallow the bait
whole. And those working up a cam
paign to defeat American government
in Hawaii find not a few ready to
