tho preservation of China's Integrity
iind the open door, America and .la

If Japan's merchants nie selling

It Is not to be Inferred that either

of no entangling alliances, Is Involv

this step without the sanction of
fir eat Ilrltnln. The whole movement
In fact has unquestionably gone for

As no mention Is made In tho dis
patches of tho Immigration question,
we may suppose that It remains in Its
present status. Japan, while not ad
mitting tho right of any nation to
exclude her citizens, and America not
picsslng that Issue, refuses passports
tor her peoplo to go to countries
where they arc not wanted, or their
Immigration In large numbers would
tend to set Ions conflict.
Kpltumlzcd, the chief benefit to
Hawaii of this International agree

Our Japanese lesldenls arc our al

who suck their sustennnco mid their

community only that It may benefit

They bleed n luck of loynlty that
sootier or later communicates itself
to the outsider.
Men who think no moro of their
own town than to mako it tl(c mo
dlum for creating a surplus to "spend
elsewhere are enemies of the com
mon good, though thoy may sit In
tho henlB with tho first citizens.
In this connection, Honolulu In
tho days of Its prosperity has unques
tionably acquit ed somo bad commu

Wc have also witnessed new enter

"It can't bo done," they say.
These same men of means havo

in other words, Just what the local

Honolulu, by lutenso criticism nnd
harsh self-analysis, has almost made
itself nfrnld of Itself. As eumpmed

THE LIMIT IN
Whenever-'any State has enough
fans to adopt the prohibition fad
there Is certain to ensue n crop ot

is a sure Indication that tho crunks

the legislation of the State.
Such being the case, it Is not sur
prising that Colonel Glenn, p patri
otic statesman of prohlbltlon-ridden
Georgia, should intrndiico n bill to
protect poor, guileless man from the
wiles ot woman, which have been In
ovidence cvcrjslnco the days of Moth

makes it notublo In the annuls of

Introduce It ns an amendment to his

Such u bill, wo legrct to Inform
the chivalrous Colonel, has nbout ns
much chnnco ot enforcement, should

brand of prohibition law, Including
that of his own State.
The stms in their courses would
fight against it, but what Is moro to
the purpose, human nature esps
clally tho fcminlno pnrt of It
would run counter to It. It is (ho
business of every woman to get mill
rled and mnn demands beauty. Nv
