No one Is happier tlieso dajs than
(lio ancient enemies of local self-government

(lint jou think Drat or tho town
whore ouv money was mnilc.
Mr Kalinulelio Is In ton it. Which
is another way of remarking that tho
Legislature will soon convene.
Tho II u 1 I c 1 1 n has received an
Interesting communication (mm Sen.
Mnr Coelho, which will be piullshcJ
THE MUNICIPAL F0LLI1S.
If Mr. Tern Is the product of his po
litical advisers lie had better break
Mooeo and try being Major Tern for n
V Maul's Democratic Supervisor hag
a dunce to make himself famous as
JJ.tlic Lhnlrman of tho Committee, on

Jjsecrctnry rcmoTcd, becauso ho whls
'pen In the ear of His Honor. Can.
that bo what's the matter with tho
. Portuguese who came from tho
pastern States aro occupying posi-
Stjons of trust on many plantations.
"'There4' is" ocry rcaso'n why others
from the same source should do as
'well or better.
It Is to bo hoped that no member
of the Hoard of Supervisors or any
Intelligent citizen regards as n dis
covery the self-evident fact that on
appeal rhcuild be undo to the courts
for an Interpretation of tho municipal
law passed by the last Legislature
Honolulu would furnish nn cxhibl
tlon for gods and men It any of the
governing o Ulcers were to suppose or
ntsumo that tho present condition
could go on forever or until one side
or the other becomes tired,
The Issues nt stake must go to the
courts. Tho circus has proceeded
long past the time when tho show
continues to be amusing.
Major Kern and his political advi
sers and the Supervisors of tho City
and County of Honolulu may ncccpt
It ns a truth that the pcoplo are nei
ther satisfied nor pleased with tho
maimer In which the governing au
thority has proceeded thus far.
The point to be determined is whe
ther tho Mnjor shall make tho ap
pointments to petty offices not named
In the municipal law or not.
Thcro is no doubt that tho purpose
of tho Legislature was to provide
that the Major appoint with the nd
lce and consent of tho Supervisors.
If the law Is properly Interpreted
oth'erw Ise, let It be known as soon as
possible and then the Legislature will
be In a position to net Intelligently
If the city governmen docs not.
Meanwhile, we havo to remember
that tho Supreme Court of tho Terri
tory Is a non-polltlcnl body, made up
of members with keen Intellects. Con
sequents. If the lawyers for tho op
posing sides aro unable to find the
exact point on which tho municipal
law may bo cleared up, somo Judge
may bo expected to develop a new Idea
from which, as n basis, the whplo
I'imrulty will bo settled

I The scheme of labor agitators Is to

A PRODDOT OF OIYlO FOOLS.
One hundred lia'ltats cast In the last
election by men who nssumo a high
degree of "Intelligence" wcro found
to have not been marked for the of
fice of Ma j of; that IS, ono hundred
qualified oters did not tote for Maj
or. The ballot Is a secret ballot, but
enough la gained from the after
gleanings of tho election tO( mako It
clear that the refusal to tote for any
candidate for Mayor of Honolulu was
fostered by a secret organization
termed tho Civic Federation.
That organization claiming for It
self and Its members n high standard
of Intellect, a larger sharo of lovo
for good government, a hollcr-than-thou
halo, decided that there was no
ono In tho list really worthy tho of
fice of Major. The three men and n
boy doing politics for the sccrci asso
ciation know Lane wnft n good pre
siding officer and had n first-class leg
islative record, but thoy did not like
htmr Thej' also did not llko Ach'l, but
carfie near endorsing h'",m. They had
once endorsed tho Democratic candi
date Fern,' nnd knew that their fail
ure to endorse Lane would help their
Fern wns elected, or at least was
so declared by Irtuo of a decision
of tho Supremo Court majorltj.
Fern thus far has proved a fizzle.
Municipal government hns Btarted
out accompanied by Incidents as In
auspicious ns tho worst enemy of
American gocrnmonl In Hawaii
Tho result would havo boon far dif
ferent had cither Lane or Achi beon
In tho Mnjor's chair.
Tho present condition may bo
traced back to those "Intelligent" cit
izens who refused to vote. Tho men
who. In tho name of "civic virtue"
violated cvory principle of patriotic
Theirs Is a sample of the"good-gov-
firnment" hjpocrlsy that prcalls In
this town. And it proes that thero
is a greater ilnngcr threatening
'A'm'erfcali government nt tho hands
of pink-nosed purists tMn ffom tho
poorest laborer that ccr did nn hon
est day's work on the roads.
The exhibitions of Incompetence In
our city government nr6 a direct
product the "Intellectual" and fool
ish pcoplo who have formed nn iiloa
that thoy can reform conditions by
calling political workers names and
then, In the name of their "purity,"
refusing to play.

Honolulu has encountered Is meroiy
ono of tho blocks placed In tho path

When the Mnyor refuses or de
