No tine seems to he ready to imt

the political loumilttees In order to
n.l e the corporations from the ap
peals for assistance.
It Is probable that the nlert ones
of the mainland nre watchlne the

will ho qulclil not"d.

Don't let our ptojuillcoi put ou
in the load that leads Hawaii to po
I'ollow party lines.
In bo doing, in inquiring tho sen
Bible party habit, you will undoubt
edly conclude thnt the Hcpubllcan
ticket, stinlght, strikes n higher av
erage than In former years, mid Its
success will guarantee the best re
sults to the Tenltory.
"I do not know much about the
tariff, but I know this much,
when wg buy manufactured goods
abroad, we get the goods and
the foreigner gets the money.
When we buy the manufactured
goods at home we (rot both the
goods and the money."
Hawaii's Prosperity and rapid
American development depends on
continued tariff protection, and the
vote of the people in November should
be a demonstration of where Hawaii
"Oct out!" is u good answer for
the political "lunner." lie's noth
ing but it grafter whoso nn total ten
dency Is to l;nlfe the man In whoso
interest lie presumes to work.
As the campaign progresses tho
Bhndow of Mr. Hoosevelt grows larger
nutl Jlr. Taft's less. Soon the people
will bo asking whether it Is Roose
velt or Tuft that Is tho candidate.
Wo would iccommend thnt tho Civ
ic Federation get In and support tho
wholo ticket. That noblo organiza
tion of threo men and Ilrothcr
Thwlng couldn't assemble n butter
inerago ticket. If they tried for
i:ery preenutlonaiy measure
should bo taken to prevent contami
nation of the wulurs of the harbor by
ships f i oin cholera ports, and to warn
the pcoplo against posslblo dan
gers. Hut don't block the traffic of
tho port by working hardships on
steamships and passengers. A shot
gun quarantine Is not necessary to
eternal sanitary Uglluncc.
Uelegato Kuhlo's statement should
bo suniclent to squelch tho aftermath
gossip of the County eouentlon. Tho
Delegate has pleached against race
voting or olnce ho entered Tcrrl
toil.il politics, and no ono can renllzo
better than ho how quickly Congress
would lestilct tho franchise, and up
set the present voting privilege. If
the voters of this Territory wero to
line up on a ruco Issue. It It woro
ndmlttcd that tho Delegate, In tho
licit of n contest, made use of ex
pressions that could be nilslntcrprc'
ted, ho would bo the first to renllzo
that laco politics spells absoluto ruin
to tho progressive Ideals of Hawaii.
Sometimes campaigns create their
own platforms regaidless of tho con
tention uttei.inces. At tho present
writing the subject of greatest Nn
tlonnl moment appears to bo: Who Is
with Standard Oil J And nil hands
strive to piove an alibi.
There is no doubt that leprosy Is a
turso of Hawaii when a man like
Burton Holmes draws a fanciful pic
ture ot nn entirely improbable inci
dent, that will remain In tho minds
of his readers when every other
thought ho has cxpicssed Is forgotten.
THE POLITICAL "RUNNER."
I'xlt tho political "runner."
If tills bo one of tho practical re-
,sult3 of tho present campaign in this
Territory, the jear will bo memor
able in tho annals of political prog
lcss. Minus n ictort to -personali
ties, nnd minus the political "run-
As tho II u 1 1 o 1 1 n understands It,
tho test case on corporation contri
bution carries no guarantee that a
final decision will bo leached beforo
thu to Is cast In No ember. Should
tho Government lose and appeal, tho
case might bo Mulshed In time for tho

daul that will attract lather than re

active Interest In the Bcleuce of gov
The political "runner" should be
distinguished from the political
Tho "runner" Is n grafter puro
nnd simple. Ho pretends to drum up
voters for tho man who will Bttpply
him most liberally with funds. Ho
works ussumedly for one man on tho
ticket, and thus causes lll-fcellug
among the party candidates. Prac
tically, he "works" the wholo propo
sition for all there Is In it for him,
and when election day comes there
is no reason to believe that ho will
deliver the goods he has promised In
tho shapo of honest votes.
The candidate who has the good
sense to tell the "runner" to "Go to
h 1" should not bo too seriously
criticised for the manner of his ex
pression. He has to say It In lan
guage the man will understand. His
Intentions, if not his exact words,
will certainly gain votes for him
among all intelligent voters.
Let the declaration on tho elimi
nation of personalities be accompa
nied by this messago for nil "run
nets." "Exit the runner. Get out!"
There Is this difference between
Iloosciell's Haying of Haskell and
Hearst's overtlnow of Toraker:
Hcatst gave one definite, btntement
ot fact; Hoosevelt takes Haskell and
mops the floor with him generally,
hut has not produced any letters and
checks, with which to bowl out his
man with ono shot.
VOTE YOUR TICKET STRAIGHT.
Events of tho last forty-eight
hours hao failed to produce any
thing political which would Justify
any dlgicsslon fiom hearty support
of tho straight Republican ticket.
With due respect for tho vory ok
tlmnblo gentlemen who hnvo been
named to oppose tho nominees ot tl;o
party In power, tho Republican lec
otd, tho Republican platform, and
the Republican candidates present a
impel inr combination of progressive
resultB, practical principles, lenson
able piomlscs, and competent men.
Thero nre also exceptional reasons
this ear why tho straight ticket
should bo suppoited. Wo give this
ndvlco to tho Democrats ns well ub
tho Republicans. If you aro In n par
ty Btuy with. It, suppoit It HONCST
I.Y ns n wholo, or bo honest and get
out. Don't knife. ,
Tho II u 1 1 o 1 1 n is convinced thnt
tho split-ticket doctrine Is very
largely responsible for tho political
ntmosphero bin-charged with tho ru
mors ot nice issue. It all goes back
to tho fact that when party lines ure
not strictly adhered to, and each
votes for tho "best man." not all
tho voters select tho samo "best
man," Personal prejudices coiuo In

that the corporations ot the Terri
tory of Hawaii aro corporations tin
dor United States laws, by virtue of
the fact that Congress adopted and
approved the corporation laws of the
Islands when the Territory was created.
Not a lawyer In town can ho
found who agrees with this latter
view of llonnpartc, and tho majoilty
of them all claim that the law
against tho contributions cannot bo
made to stick here.
Tho supposition Is thnt a decision
by Judge Dole will settle tho wholo
proposition and Immediately It Is
handed down evcrjbody will know
what to do. District Attornoy llrec

Hint this corporation-contribution
business Is of such Importance thnt
tho Department of Justice will con

necessary. If this be the result, tho
wholo thing will ho tied up during
the campaign nnd no one will be ben.

tions expected to como through
while tho presont contest Is on.
It may ho clear Bailing and then
again it might not bo. The Federal
campaign Is taking so many funny
turns thnt someone may wake up
over-night and dlscovor that tho Ad
ministration is letting something
slide in Hawaii that should not bo
allowed to slide, and there Is no tell
ing what the end ot the case might
be, or how long tho decision ot the
whole question might bo held up.
