A. Q. M. Ilobcrtson having refused
absolutely lo accept this chairman
ship of the Republican Territorial
Committee, there Is no doubt that J.
P. Cooko Is ono of tho best men pos
sible for tho place. Ilobcrtson having
had tho honor of hnrtl work thrust
upon him for two campaigns, Mr.
Cooke ought to bo willing to shoulder
tho burden for ono of tho most im
portant periods of Hawaii's history.
There Is not, noer ha been, nnd
noer will bo tho slightest doubt ot
what Is and ought to bo tho nttttudo
of the 'people of Hawaii toward
Government-!)) -Commission for this
Territory. Uery political organiza
tion, cery business organization, nnd
ocry patriotic boclcty ot the Terri
tory might well pass resolutions that
will elenrly put on record the senti

THE DEMOCRATIO PLATFORM.

at tho Territorial convention Is a doc-,
ument which propounds certain Belt
cIdcnt truths on which thcro Is noi

jl uiuuo. I
In this lack of prldo Is to bo found
a characteristic mood of the Dem
ocratic party, and It illuminates ono
of the principal rensons why tho De
mocracy is not wholly attractive to
citizens who sjmpathlzo with many
ot ItB suggestions.
The Democratic party In this Ter
ritory has risen to tho dignity of n
tew successful candidates. Yet when
the leaders and the rank and flto sit
down to tell tho people what they
nro driving at they forget to empha
size their remarks by stating what
they hao done.
Their thought Is centered exclu
sively on criticism of tho Republi
cans. What a party might do, Is largely
judged by what It has donc. This la
the way tho average American looks
at it, but the Democracy forgets all
this in its desire to criticise. That
is why the pcoplo feel that ItB share
' of accomplishment Is so small as to
be not worth mentioning.
In other words, the Democracy Is
not constructive It does not hack
un its words with deeds.
$ Wo beg, howovcr, to congratulate
t the Democrats on tholr fnlluro to say
nnythlng about tho tariff, ny tho
reasoning thnt somo platforms havu
impressive silence, the assumption Is
that, not being able to support tho
National Democracy's doBlro for a re
duction of the tariff, tho local Demo
crats keep quiet. Thoy would havo
doho hotter to come out flat-footed,
tell the truth, Bhamo tho Devil, and
announce what wo all know: that
the protcctlvo tariff is tho llfo ot Ha
waii. Hut this was too much to ox
pect of Democrats filled with
thoughts ot what tho Republicans nro
Wo further congratulato tho Dem
ocrats on tho plank for tho oxtonslon
ot tho school s j stem to includo man
ual training, agrlculturo, and civil
government, particularly agriculture
and government. Thcro really is no
difteronco ot opinion on this subject,
excopt tho unfortunate supporters of
tho "Government by Commission"
may bo opposed to It.
Favor for tho Direct Prlmury law
Is another claim of the Democracy to
the kindly feeling of the people. The
law should go through with a unani
mous voto this tlmo.
Otherwise, tho platform gives rlso
to the constant query: You say tho
other fellow has not "mado good,"

"What's the matter with W. T. Raw
litis for Maor?"
This question was put Into tho po
litical talk box this morning by n gen
tleman who sees In tho three-cornered
contest of Lucas, Lano and Hustaco
n posslblo deadlock and considerable
hnrd political feeling.
Tho claim Is mado thnt Rawlins Is
a nntho son of Hawaii and his legal
knowlcdgo should mnko him an es
pecially good man for tho plnco when
tho city government Is stnrtlng In. It
Is also hot forth thnt his nomination
for major would scttlo tho "Manoa
row" and balanco tho ticket as re
gards the Cithcnrt and Rawlins fol
lowing. It Is holloicd that Rawlins
and Cathcart could get along In first
class shapo as their present precinct
row Is not based on deep seated per
sonal bitterness nor n belief on Raw
lins part that Cathcart Is not a cap-
ablo County Attorney. On tlto outer
hand tho Cathcart following nro not
against Rawlins hojomrtho possibility
ot nnlted'actlon In the campaign and
"I had thought of .lack Atkinson,"
said tho man who proposed Rawlins,
"but with Jack ns Major, John Wlso
as Sheriff and Cathcart as County At
torney, I think that thcro would ho
too closo an approach to a factional
compact. We want a well balanced
ticket nnd I hnvo picked Rawlins ns
tho solution. John Lano ought to go
to tho Senate. Ho knows tho topes
and ho Is n good man. And ot cottrso
jou can understand that I am not to
enthusiastic over Hustaco or Lucas
that I think either or Lano can win In
the majoralty fight. I expect a dark
horso to tako tho prize."
