Tlio (lovcrnor states the case vory
rjlearly when ho ilrnws attention to
tho fact that the tax-gathering power
of tho Territory depends on tho pros,

This Torrltorj cannot move for

If It lacks workers. It must have tho

In tho Immedtato future.
Tho outline presented by the Gov
ernor may havo to bo changod lit
jfinrno minor detail. It may bo posslblo
to frame a progresslvo Income, tax
that will distribute the burden of tho
"" special fund more generally on thoso
1 best able to pay It. Generally, how
ever, diversions from a measure that
, 1ui3 been carefully studied In order to
carry It successfully through tho
courts Is dangorous business and
practised only by opponents.
Tlip poor man, tho man who wants
this Territory Americanized, Is the
Inst ono who should raise his oko
As there have ueen no nutciles of
capitalists, It Is to be presumed that
tho Governor has canvassed the sit
uation pictty tntcfull) previous to
announcing his course. It seems reas
onable to believe that nt least a good
number of tho largo Industrial and
luinnclal Intel ests on which tho bur
din will fall most heavily will not op
peso tho measure.
This may seem Impossible, It may
suggest itself to ,tho suspicious mind
as too good 'to bo true. Hut until
there Is a definite movement In oppo
sition fiom tho vested Interests, the
man of small means and good Inten
tions and high Ideals should glvo
' thanks that tho coming session may
piovu that In Hawaii tho vested In
terests are not as other lptcrcsts In
other places; that thoy are able to

Blioro of what amounts to a special
tax to carry It forward. The It u 1 -1

letter view for tho legislator to take.
There Is no question that the whole

This Territory must havo Imni'l
f giunts. This presents no room for

accident) occurred nt about 3:30 p. m.
Saturday, on tho corner of Kort and
Moving a house, on wheels, along
King street, was tho canto of tho mix
up. Tho houso was too high for tho
electric wires running down Tort nnd
consequently had to scrapo through
Bomehow. Kealoha, an electrician,
who was on top of tho houso taking
caro of tho car wires, was caught up
by a live wire. Ho clung to it for a
dilute or mi and then swung himself
lung onto ono of tho guy-wires. Kv
or ono thought that tho man, who
ihowcd great coolness, would bo flee-'
trocuV-'d. but no ground connection
being cslalillshed, Keuloha wan safe.
Quito a number of would-ha hcliors
wero warned off by tho man, who knew
his great danger It ho came In contact
Klnnlly a wagon was placed directly
beneath him, nnd throwing himself
backwards ho was safely caught by tho
men standing on the vehicle.
A sigh of lellef went up when Ke
aloha reached terra flrma and tho
crowd began to laugh. Tho electrician
Is to bo complimented on his norvo and
good sense In not allowing tho willing
helpers to get both' themselves and

ernor lYear this morning,
Tho boy was at one time an Inmate
of tho Komi Orphanage. Ho came In
Honolulu nnd got In with bad compan
ions, and his Jail sentence was tho ul
timate result. Tho Governor says tho
boy has been behaving very well, that
ho Is not any too bright, that hohas a
Job waiting for him, and this appears
lo bo n case where executive clemency
may very properly ho exercised.
