It Is what he meant.
This muy or may not ho true. It

It seems a shame for the Senate to,
ilnsh tho hopes of police-court l.w-'

more than tho lawyers.
Hawaii's House of Representatives
finis already gained u reputation for
t-'liro-ulleii action that will give rise
lo more suspicion on the mainland
ft linn has hitherto existed.
& It has ceased to be reniaikablo for
tho President to select on cx-Confed-
i-rnto for one of his chief advisers.
.Tho Nation is doing Its utmost to
'.'forget the past unpleasantness. And
There has been n change In Wash
ington. So doubts arise concerning
tliu Federal appointments. And It
may do no harm If a few cogs In the
system nro broken Just as a reminder
that the other fellow sometimes has a

Is It not posslhlo that the Collego
of Agriculture or tho Agricultural
Experiment Station can produce a
man who ran do educational work of
this character, though equipment for
the heavy phslcnl operations may
not bo available? Such an assign
ment for one of tho faculty or the

IMPROVE, NOT REVOLUTIONIZE.
Many persons are devoting them
selves to n general criticism of con
Idltlons of government In Hnwall and
I confine themselves almost entirely to
'a relation of what Is found at some
I place on the mainland or In Europe
or In Asia, or In Australia; this by
i way of comparison to provo that we
arc n good-sight worse than any oth-
era on earth.
Comparisons are valuable. Hut It
i better to bo fully Informed on
' .iat wo have here In Hawaii.
Immediate attention to tho present
:cmnntls and n settlement of our own
iroblcms In a manner likely to bo
termnnent Is tho real lssuo beforo
the people of this Territory today.
What does It profit this Territory
to argue nbout conditions that pre
vail In any city of tho mainland when
the argument draws the people away
from the problem that Is very much
of tho Here nnd Now of Hawaii?
This Territory needs a perfection
of Its picsent government, so that Its
expenses shall come within tho In
come. Hawaii Is not to be benefited by
revolutionary action. There havo
been enough of icvolutlons.
When the local governments were
organized they weie brought forth
to remnln. It was and Is assumed by
all Intelligent persons that whore tho
old Territorial organization, u relic
of the monarchy and ollgaichy, dupli
cated County ofTlces, the duplication
should be eliminated by a transfer
of full duty to the County nnd n re
moval of the duplicating Tcriltorlal
This Is what the members of tho
Legislature should now center their
It has been found that work placed
i upon the Territory Is moro than tho

not particularly short of ready coin.
Adjustment Is therefore, tho very
Important task lo which tho oxecu-
tlvo and tho legislative departments
must npply thcmsolves. That they
will reach u perfect solution during
this session of tho Legislature Is very
Improbable They can, however,
muko n good advance, And they
should provide n commission for tho
special study of tho situation nnd re
port to tho noxt Legislature.
It Is a business proposition some
what mixed with politics ns repre
sented by tho dcslro or tho various
districts or tho Territory to get nil
they can. To handle tho matter ac
cording to tho rules of good business
will bo good politics.
Tho principle or local seir-govern-ment
hns become established; conrc
nucutly lt Is neither good business
nor good politics to Increase, compli
cations by striving to overthrow tho
basis or operations.
IS IT FAIR PLAY?
Editor Evening 11 u 1 1 o 1 1 n :
Tho Hoard of Supervisors yesterday
afternoon approved everyone of tho
Mayor's Republican appointees and
turned down ovcryono or his Demo
cratic appointees. Is that serving tho
public Interests, or Is It playing parly
politics? Is there an atom or fair piny

Not until the Supremo Coin I decid
ed that tho Supervisors had absolute
ly nu power of appointment did they
tako up tho Major's appointments.
They luie been telling tho public nil
along that their fight with tho Mayor
was because they chilhied that his ap
pointments had to bo confirmed by
them. Tho Insincerity of this claim
Is shown by tho fact that at any one
of their meetings they could have
done exactly what they did yesterday,
tako up his appointments' nnd confli'm
or reject them. These appointments
hnvo been beforo them cer slnco
January -I to bo acted on Just as much
ns they wero yesterday.
Hut oven yet tho Hoard Is In de
fiance of the Supremo Court. Tho
court decided that tho executive pow
er Is vested In the Major, ami the
Supervisors hnvo absolutely no power
of appointment. And yet tho Super
iors or nt least tho members of tho
Ito.id Committee, Qulnti nnd others,
are dally glln instructions to men
whom they hno attempted to appoint
to hold possession of the City nnd

appointed. This Is outlawry. Tommy

Hut what can you expect from n

partisan effrontery to confirm every
one of tho .Mayor's Republican np
polutccfl and to refuse to confirm
cveryono of his Democratic ap
pointees? JOHN EMMELUTH.
