Mr. Cooke's proposal to let every man In the Chamber of Commerce
have Ills full say on the coastwise shlppinK law suspension Is very proper.
We, howecr, doubt that there will be further change, of nttltiule on this
subject. The compelling argument for refusal to tamper with the present
law U that Hawaii shoulil be last to force an overthrow of the principles
of Protection. The coastwise law Is its miioh a part of the scheme of
protection as tho tariff schedule on foreign Imports. The argument for
the passage of the mall subsidy at the present session of Congress is
stronger than for n special exception for this Territory In tho coastwise

In Its special reference to tho Tct
rltory of Hawaii the message is par
ticularly vigorous and pointed.
Though the President proposes noth
ing new, he has touched on the vital
necessities for the development of
these Islands as n strong outpost

After reading the recommendation
for thu suspension of tho coastwise
shipping law, wo may better under
stand why the Governor cabled hU
regrets over tho action of the bull
ness organizations in revoking their
upprovnl of the bill embodying tho
amendment for Hawaii in particular.
The President goes at tho BUbJect
of our needs in his usual Incisive and
forceful style. He directs attention,
to the cessation of oriental Immigra
tion and tho opportunity for Internal
development with a citizen popula
tion. To uphold the prosperous con
ditions of the Territory und nt tho
same time build on right lines for the
futuro we must have ample transpor
tation facilities, improved harbors,
and a free hand for securing labor
from thu mainland and Europo,
Tho conference of Territorial offi
cers held yesterday with Secretary
Garfield on European Immigration
was obviously n preparation for car
rying out the suggestion mado by tho
President and presented to Congress
Every detail of the message Is
pithy and well worth careful perusal.
That portion In which ho deals with
tho corporations, the railroads, nnd
the laboring men will, under present
conditions of public mind, attract tho
One reading his schemo for tho con
trol of tho railroads of the country
cannot fall to observe tho lnllucnco
the Chicago traction strugglo has had
on the Chief Executive. It may bo a
coincidence, but tho President in ad
vocating control of corporation-owned
railroads rather than destruction
and Government ownership, has fol
lowed what Chicago found a practical
solution, ns set forth in tho state
ment of the. situation given by Miss
Tarbcl In tho American Magazine.
The President demands In effect
that the railroads shall bo sufficiently
controlled by the Government to tako
them outside the field of exploitation
for tho benefit of swollen fortunes
und tho oppression of tho people
through rebates and unfair dealing
with employees. He would have tho
Federal Government supremo In
handling Inter-Stato commerce. Ho
would not rob n single Investor of
ono cent of legitimate profit. He
would atsuro tho employe a good
wage. Ho would guarantee satisfac
tion for tho public by a full puljllc
fctatcment of tho affairs of tho cor
poration, that tho peoplo may know
exactly the condition under which
the roads nro operating and whero
the money is going.
This Is Intensely practical. It has
proved successful In ono of tho great
municipalities. And the principle in
volved is ono bo meaty with good
hard business senso that It might well
expand to the National field.
In matters of National finance It
la Interesting to note that taking tho
full period of Mr. Iloosevelt's eervlco
ns, President, tho country finds Itself
many millions ahead, tho National
debt reduced, und the Interest ac
count cut down.
It is In his mornllzatlon over the
attitude oMho reactionaries 'of high
finance and' the radicals of labor nnd
socialism that the Rooseveltlan abil

calls for tho highest respect to bo

believes that the courts should Inter

"The problem of tho City and Coun
ty of Honolulu Is ono ot importance
In my opinion. It Is customary in
a great many places to have tho City
and County In one government unit,
but thero are many special difficulties
here. I went out pheasant hunting
tho other day, Bot out of tho nuto-
nioblle to shoot a bird and tho feath
ered creature ran away, and I'could
n't find a policeman to, get it. The
problems here nre certainly varied. I
understand tho mongoose are bo thick
that the rats have to roost on tno
telephone poles, llut. seriously, I
think the city of Honolulu should be
confined In entailer limits. In tho
States in tho line ot municipal prog
ress, tho city is the most Important
government unit there Is. Tho best
results come where there is the larg
est home rule. The best results can
not be achieved in a city and county

Important thing is that "Ships keep

would confine tho work of his mouth
to kissing and conversation, thero
would be less trouble In the world.

here, anil I .behove that, by develop
