WHERE ARE THE POLICE?
It li about time for the police de
partment of the County -ofOahu to
There Is no doubt of It.
Last Saturday evening a peaceful
Householder had a battle with a bura
lar, who left the house minus his hat
and his shoes and carrying away a bat
tered head. Eor a policeman of aver
age capacltyand horse sense the trail
of this culprit was as wide as the road
that leads to perdition.
Yet the burglar Is still at large.
Now comes another incident of a
weman, living In the center of the
.... ...L.a.J . Mink, nu . kll.nL..'
who paid her the delicate attention
of trying to stangle her.
This Is not a difficult town In which
to run down burglais or other offend
ers against the law. The Inability of
the police to reach the man or men
who are doing this work Is a most dis
graceful commentary on the energy,
ability and responsibility of those del
egated with the authority to protect
Honolulu Is not a city In which burg
lary Is common or where, with a fair
ly competent police force, there Is the
'slightest reason for the life of a law
breaker to be made the comparatively
1 free one that It now ceems'to be.
If the police department cannot do
better than has been done of late, It
; would pay the community to hire the
t worst thug to be found ana pay him
' a good price to run down the other
thugs and put them out of business.
Judged by the results, the police
force as at present organized Is a
- complete fizzle.
Is It necessary to wait until the new
. Sheriff takes office before we may
1 have reason to expect that burglars,
, 'hleves and their Ilk will be run out
of town or into Jail?

who write or procure others to write
the articles are engaged In the prac
tlce of mendacity for hire, and sure'
ly there can he no lower form of
gaining n livelihood. Whether they
are paid by outsiders to say what Is
faltc or whether their profit comes
from the circulation of the false
hoods Is n matter of small conso
que n eo. It Is uttorly Impossible to
nnswer nil of their falsehoods. When
nny given falsehood is exposed they
simply repeat It nnd circulate anoth
or. If thoy were. mistaken In tho
facts, if they possessed In their make
up nny shred of honesty. It would
to worth whllo to set them right-
Hut there Is nu question at nil as to
any "mistake' or 'mlsundcrstnndliiE'
on their part. They Btnte what they
cither know to be untruo or could
by tho slightest inquiry 11 ml out to
be an untruth.
'I doub If they themselves lemcm
her their own falsehoods for more
than n very brief period, and I doubt
still more whether anybody else
does. Under theso circumstances It
seems hardly worth whllo to single
out for Bpeclal mention one or two
given falsehoods or ono particular
paper, (ho moral standard of which
Is as low, lint no lower, than that of
certain other papers.
"Of course, now and then I am
willing to denounce n given false
hood, ns, for instance, as regards this
case of tho Indianapolis Nows or the
case I have quoted of the New York
Sun, simply because. It ttppcais thnt
some worthy people nro misled or
puzpled by theso direct, shnmclesH
falsehoods. Hut ordinarily I do not,
and can not pay heed to these false
hoods. If I did I would not be able
to do my work. My plan has been
to go ahead, to do tho work, nnd to
let these peoplo and thoso llko thorn
yell and then trust with abiding con
fidence to the good sense of tho
American people in tho assured con
viction thnt the yells will die -out,
tho falsehoods bo forgotten, nnd tho
"Therefore, as far as I am con
cerned, I would rather mako no an
swer whatever In this case. Uut 1
have much confidence In your Judg
ment, and If you feel that these men
ought to bo exposed, why, you aro
welcome to publish this letter. Thoro
Is no higher nnd more honorablo call
ing Htan that of the men connected
with nn upright, fenrlcss,' nnd truth
ful nowspaper; no calling In which a
man can render groater scrvlco to his
fellow-countrymen. Tho best and
ablest editors and writers In tho
dully press render a scrvlco to tho
community which can nuruiy ue par
alleled fjy the service rendered by the
best and ablest men In public life, or
tho men in business. Hut tho cqn-
verse of this proposition Is also true,
"Most corrupt financiers, tho most
corrupt politicians, aro no greater
menace to this c&untry than the
newspaperman of tho typo that I
above discussed. Whether they bo
long to tho yellow press or to tho
purchased press, whatever may be
tho stimulating cause or their slan
