SPLIT TICKET RESULT.
Tho "split ticket men" of the last
locnl campaign had n magnificent ex
hlliltlcm t the lesults uf their work
when tho city mid coutit government
ir Honolulu was Inaugurated on Mon
day. Ir tlicro nn Intelligent cltltcn
whoso mental nltlttnle Is so twisted
that he can bellovu the election of n
itrali;ht Itopubllcun ticket could have
limited the clt in such a Jumblo ns
thu Mayor nnd Supervisors now find
The "best man theorj" has iilaced
tho people and their government where
theories not In lino with coinnion
jeiiso pructico usually do.
Tho ila.uir of the city, a product of
Ihu "theory" and the split ticket, Is
ilthcr Incompetent, doesn't under
stand or has not yet waked up.
How many more samples aro needed
to Impress citizens that straight par
tlzniiKlilp, rondiicted on honest lines
us It has been conducted In Hawaii, Is
what will maintain order nnd ellinln
nto chaos In this community?
As the split ticket men are the en
emies of government by tho people,
the only satisfaction they can Rain Is
In the discredit they have assisted in
bringing upon our fair city. In this
they tlml the same pleasure that trait'
orn obtain from selling their country
to nn enemy.
MR. MAKOR, BRACE UP.
It is with deep regret that tho
II ii I I e t i n makes tho ndmUslon
that the first Major of Honolulu on
the (list day of his offlclal career
inndo a fizzle of if.
There is really no other term to
No objection ban be offered to a
Major allowing someone to write his
inaugural. Many mayors do that.
Hut It was, nt least, in keeping with
ths dignity of the oIUco that tho doc
ument snouiii nave ueen renearseu
carefully so that tho reading might
have gone smoothly when the Major
wan on exhibition.
Any Major Is likely to get caught
in n mlx-up with n Hoard of Super-1
ilsors striving to test the law under
which they nre acting. Ha may be
at u loss to know Just what movo to
tnnko In combatting an opposition.
Hut there are mighty few mayors
who declaro a meeting Illegal nnd
then remain to take part In tho lies
Klun and endeavor to put motions.
Only one is known that, armed with
Latteries of political advisers on cv--ry
hand, did not have the presence
of mind to get up and go out, refus
ing to sanction nny action even by
Whether the Mayor or the politi
cal advisers mo responsible Is not for
lilts' paper to say. The U u 1 1 e 1 1 n
doesn't care. Nor do tho people care.
Tho misfortune we almost said
disgrace of the first meeting of the
olllcers of the City nnd County of Ho
nolulu Is tho exhibition put on by
the lepresentatlves of tho people, In
tho nnmo of popular government In
The Mayor of the city Is not only
the representative of the Dempcratlc
party. Ho Is tho chief executive of
this city. Whether we like It or not,
jhs community will be Judged by his
coriimon t,ensc, acumen, or lack of It.
What's more, ho Is In nn especial
measure the representative of the Ha'
walinn people, nnd bears a great re'
sponslblllty In this respect.
It Is therefore distressing to be
forced to explain that this three'
ringed circus that went on In tho
r.nine of nn Inaugural was not repre
sentative of Honolulu, but was rather
mi exception to provo the rule.
Honolulu 1ms the Intelligent men
nnd hundreds of bright young men,
nr old olios, among tho Hawaiian
Americans who can conduct a meet
ing, hold their own with nn opposi
tion, and came.off with honorable do
feat If not a clear-cut victory. The
capable men are hoio. The first ex
perience with the new Mayor does
not suggest that, one of the bright
nnd shining lights U in the Mayor's
This Is not said In a spirit of face

Tho 11 u 1 1 o 1 1 n does, however,
vigorously suggest that tho Major of
the city brace up.
If the real fault Is with his politi
cal advisers, discard them. If he can
do better "going It alone," for heav
en's sake cut loose nnd play a lono
Tho II u 1 1 c 1 1 n earnestly begs
tho first Major of Honolulu to re
member that in IiIr present position
he Is establishing standards by which
tho whole peoplo will bo Judged. He
can give tho city and Its peoplo n
reputation for competence or Incom
petence In self-government. He can
prove to the American peoplo that
self-government Is wisely or foolish
ly bestowed upon tho citizens resi
dent In Honolulu nnd Hnwnl. He
mil do much to increnso tho Impres
sion that this Is n live, progressive,
wldc-nwnko town, or, ns somo on the
mnlnlnml still think, n little. cluster
of beach houses where the conditions
of life are somewhat rural, clothes

De Bolt Says Circuit
.Courts Should Always
' Be Open
Circuit Judge J. T. Do Holt has made
his annual report to Chief Justice Unit
well on the work done by htm, nnd, 1.!
addition, has made n number 'of Im
portant suggestloni nnd rccoinmrtida
tlotiB. Jlu says a follows with regard
to tho terms of I lie Circuit Lvnts:
'I would suggest Hint Circuit Court
terms be abolished, and that tho Clr
cult Courts shall always bo open nml
In continuous session, except on non
judicial dnys; nnd thnt, unless by con
tent, no jury in nny civil enso sneu uo
begun In July or August.
"With terms of court, at which times
only cases may be trlod, Justice inny
bo unreasonably delajed, If not denied
in sbmo cases, while ill other ci ecu mi
ll uo and Injurious hasto may bo re
quired or acceded to rather than suffer
n postponement to a subsequent term.
In circuits whoro tho work Is not sufll
dent to require the continuous attend
nnco of Jurors it would be an eut-y m.il'
ter to oxaiise them until notified to
"Justice and reason, as well in coon
oniy of tlmo and money, demand that
cases shall bo tried nnd finally ills
posed of whenever they nro ready for
trial. Summons, of courso, to bi 're
turnable twenty days after servlco, ut
which tlmo tho cause may bo tried.
"In tho ovent that tho terms of com t
aro not abolished, then I would sug
gest that these words In tho piovlio,
Section 2, Act BO, Laws 1907, namely:
'March, June or November and no ttlM

Jury fees be taxed ns costs against tho
losing party, making r.n exception,
however, In tho case of a poor nun.

If, In the past, jou have bewailed
