much like this: "You get down

All of which Is not true. Is un

and, as a matter of fact, n mlsrep-icsi'iitntlon.
Thls'ls on u par with tho crltlclsta
ot our local boats.
The people iif'Ilonotulu should slop

Is better to keep ipilet. New bhlps
cannot be built nml tho present ones
kept on the unite by Honolulu nit
veitlslug to the world its poor opin
ion of triiil lack of lo)alty for Itself.
There can be 110 doubt that Hono
lulu Is dealing with n dangerous
thing when It begins to tamper with
the coastwise shipping law, and
Marts the policy of exceptions, as
likelv to develop unfavorably ns for
out ucnellt. i;very time a btcach Is
iiiiulo In tho wall ot Protection our
prosperity Is to some extent threat'
'jucd. If thu President or the (lov
cinor or one of our leading citizens
khoulit tell us that this Is not ;o, tho
wouls would be cuiibollng but they
me no more Infallible than the rest
As tho matter btnuds at present,
the majoilty In Honolulu bushicss or
ganizations Is Mill against the coast
wise law suspension. The ro.it on for
this is that tho majority believes in
Protection and willingly bems the
burdens that may fall paitluil.uly
heavily on those Islands. Tho bciie
llts are In much ri eater proportion.
Ever 0110 would be glad to have
tho prlvilego of tiavollng on any and
evoiy passenger bteamor Flopping at
this port Irrespective ut tho Hag It Is
under. Hut If our citizens enn hol.i
the cause of Ameilc.in shipping or
keep what ships wo have remaining
on this ocean, they should bo lcidy
to accept uiigiudgliif;l ccitaln li.usli
piovislous ot tho coastwise shipping
Let us hopo that Congiesi In Its
wisdom will do what Is best.
If tho inn 1 1 subsidy bill is not pass
ed, wo doubt very much that tho
coastwise law will bo suspended for
tho Territory of Hawaii. And thus
may Congress put Itself In tho list
of those as Inconsistent as the Hono
lulu Chamber of Conimeice, voting
lu luatteis of appointment to public
Honolulu has never possessed n
boss, nnd has no matcilnl immediate
ly available. Nothing Is gained by
smirching the lecord and good naiin
ot the clt bj trvlng to make It ap
pear that bosslsnt and Interference
with elected and appointed officers la
sprouting nil on account of tho men
who did excellent woik In the cam
paign stating Mint, they would like to
have something to say lu the selec
tion of nppolnter-s.
The 1111111 who believes In Kepubll-
can principles Is 11 most impractical
Individual If he decs not also support
metliods'that will strengthen the Re
publican pint) You cannot havo
ptluelplos worked out unless ou
elect the Itepubllcaii woikers.
To carry out the principles, there
must be loyal parlv men mid efficient
man in office And to get tho best
lesults, the Itepubllcnn officcm of H13
local or the Teirltorlal Government
should keep In cloio touch with and
accept In good faith the suggestions
of the membeis ot tho organization.
When this bus been done In tho
past the partx has been strengthened
mid its sin iixs assured. Departurs

It Is safe to predict that tho Re

also of decenc In politics.
DIGNITY OF THE SKIRT.
Prof. W. I Thomas, of the Unl
veislty of Chicago. In 1111 attlclo on
' lho psjrliologj of woman's dress"
"The foolish and disrespectful cus
toms ot torn tcs which men practise
toward women are also a product of
woman's dres'. nnd tend to keep her
helpless In inlnd nnd body. The help
lessness Involved In lacing, high
heels, undivided skirls, and other
Impedimenta of women has n certain
chnrnt lu the eves of man, Their
helplessness shows li tin off better by
giving freer pl.15 to his protective
mid mnsteiful Instincts."
If skirts ure an Indication of weak
ness, why is It that man, when ro
jolvcd to appear in tho utmost dig
nity, wcais them Emperors and
kings. Popes nnd priests. Judges, and,
lu some courts, lawjeis, to say noth
ing ot college piofcssors and gradu
ates, wear lobes.
Why do women phi; up their isklitj
ns 1111 expression of scorn, If not to
carry n deeper meaning to their out
raged dignity? tt

function ho wcais a coat with skliH

MAHUKA SITE CONCLUSION.
(lovernor Treat's cablegram of this
moiiilug bhows that ho has acceded
to tho views of tho citizens of Hono
lulu, whatever his 'original position
might havo been 011 the question ot
tho location of the Federal building.
This slto matter may now ha put
down 11s absolutely settled. It U
highly Impiobnblo that thn present
,AilmInlHtintlon or nay of Its succes
hois will undertako tu carry tluough
i.ny deals for a change of location.
'J'heio Is no doubt of the opinion of
tho people ot Honolulu lenialiilnx

It would be a splendid thing for
the city ot Honolulu to exert tho
