h.is an Important bearing on the tnr
IK schedules In which the Tcriltory
of Hawaii Is concerned.
The tariff on sugar has been one of
the greatest rcveiiue-pioducors the
country has had. It Is highly Im
probable therefore than Congress, In
view of the present state of public
finance, will take rndlcal Btcps to cut
off this source of revenue.

did not sign tho complaint which I
mudo to tho Secretary of tho Territory
n h "Defeated Democratic Candidate
for Treasurer for tho County of Ha
waii." Nor did 1 sign it personally,
or make any complaint personnnlly
and solely on my own behalf. If I
liavo any personal grievances tho pub.
He don't caro for them. I nm not
foolish enough to think that tho pub
lic caies about them. I made tho
complaint for and on behnlf of tho
Democratic Organization in this coun
ty nnd blgned it ns "Secretary, Demo-
cratlc County Central Committee,
County of Hawaii." You might pooh
pooh tho distinction, but there is n
distinction worthy of notice.
Though, perhaps, not Intentional,
the first few lines mentioning tho
controversy published In tho Uullelln
December 8th would lead your roan
era, moio or less, nlong tho following
lines: Ryan, a defeated Democratic
candldato for Comity Treasurer In thu
county of Hawaii registers a kick
about violation of tho Election Laws,
Ryan is a crank: a chronic kicker.
Always kicking, but never knows
what he, Is kicking about. Just kicks
from mero forco of habit. If ho had
been .elected either by foul or fair
means he would not have a kick com
ing on violation of Election Laws, and
might feel satisfied for a short time.
Howorcr, Secretary Mott-Smlth has
written him a reply to his complaint
telling him to go to court or Texas.
Perhaps I luivo ner-drawn tho pic
ture. In fact, I have tried to do so
for tho purpose of showing that tho
press seonis to feci It to bo a duty to
defend public ofllclals, whether right
or wrong, on the theoiy of "The pub

I have already stated that this Is n
party matter and not wholly my own.
That 1 was n sort of "nccojumodi

Is also n party matter in ono r.cnse.
nnd If I wished to be n volunteer to
lead a forlorn hope, It's largely my
own affair. It is well known here that
tho Democrats were heavily handicap,
ped in their effort to break nwny fiiiin,
tho Home Rulers with whom they be
came associated by reason of fusion
In 190C. Perhaps I did more thnn tiny
other democrat to get the Democratic
Party Into tho fusion deal. I meant
well, but was mistaken. When I found
my mistake It was up to me to do nil
I could to get the party out of such
tin unholy nlllnnce. It is jio secret
that It was difficult to get camlldatos
to nccept nominations on thu Demo
.cratlc ticket nnd mako n struggle for
lost ground und being a nlinng mho
calo of presenting u "bolld front" and
complete Democratic ticket, It was al
so up to me to do something when
oluntccrs were called for.
To let the impression prevail that I
now feel aggrieved on account of tie

Tho Bulletin- tukes tho samo posi

which says that tho Inspectors shall

to say, In substance, for that reason
thoy can legally nsk the voter to sign
almost any thing they take a notion ID

say i am going too fur; but If your

To mako a long story short, neither
