,eRiHntlon dcalltiK with wlrclcs
telegraphy Is piobnbly more vital to
,i,e ,c01,ic 0f Hawaii than In any
other lilaco In tho civilized world, 33
we depend exclusively on tho wire
less for Inter-Island telegraphic com
munication. I'coplc of the mainland care llttlo
whethei opposing; wireless telegraph
companies set up stations on tho
shore and IhdulKc in the pastime of
putting one another out of business.
Wireless Is with them more or less
of a plaything and used only for com
munication with ships lit ten. In Ha
waii wireless Interruption means isl
rnltko women and the wire tel
CRraph, it is Impossible for two sets
of wireless stations to tall: nt the
tame time. An independent station
could lie erected on tho shore of any
island In this Territory and put every
other station out of business.
That nu)ono would be so foolish
as to attempt tills seems Improbable.
Timely legislation will prevent the
possibility of a wireless war that
could accomplish no possible good
and would gieatly Interfere with the
business of the various Islands.
There has been some talk of Na
tional laws to control wireless. The
Atlantic Fleet, for Instance, was un
able to mako Itself heard on the At'
luntlc Coast on account of the multl'
tude of wireless stations "buttlne-ln'
and Interfering with official mes
sages Hut Congress moves Blnwly.
Hawaii was the pioneer In wireless
for commercial purposes jind It should
nlso pave tho way for regulations that
will effectively protect the airlines
of communication, without creating
RECALL OF PUBLIC OFFICERS.
A few years ago the "recall" of
pnlillc ofllcers elected by tho people
was branded as socialistic, populls
tic, und opposed to all the tenets of
t10 cny 0f Ma Angeles has Just
moved that the right of the voters to
lecull an olllcial who has slgnall)
failed In his duty Is a mlghly good
antidote for evil government. .Major
Harper has leslgned lather than face
thu lecull exposuiu und ole.
A Coast exchange makes the very
pcitlucnt comment that before tho re
call was introduced public ofllcers
foigot thnt they wcro the servants of
the people, chosen by them to execute
the laws or to legislate or administer
public offices. And to they did pret
ty generally as thoy pleased. And
no matter how loudly the people- or
the newspaper might complain, they
followed their own Inclinations, rath

It Is Quito evident that In resign

sure In tho newspapers, Harper had
something to conceal, as a guiltless
official would not under any consid
eration resign under lire.
Thus lias been demonstrated tho
value of tho principle that those who
choose officials may also discharge
them, tho same as private persons.
Hut n weapon such us the recall
should bo used circumspectly and
with great caution, for It might bo

Kdllor livening Ilullotln:
Kconomy Is n virtue not to bo decried
cither In the Individual or the body,
politic, but there Is such a thing as be
ing "penny wlso and pound foolish,"
nnd the suggestions of our legislators
concerning the department of educa
tion might well be so described.
Tho last placo for a state to scrimp
financially should be In Its schools. Cut
down anywhere and everywhere else,
but spare tho public schools. Our form
of government cannot afford to be nig
gardly lu this respect.
Tho school toucher arng every cent
of her salary. If bIio has a conscience
she has no "BOft snap" In her office.
What If she does begin work at nine
and Btop at two. Did you over know
a real, earnest teacher whose day's
work ended with tho schedule? It )ou
did bo, or she, must have been a won
der, or else tho work In that school
must hnvo been poorly done.
Pay thu teacher tho full amount al
lowed by schedule, this is small
enough, and give her n decont and com
fortable school room every time. It
need not bo elegant, but It can, and
should be, attractive; with due atten
tion paid in Its construction to lighting
Tho Idea of cutting the age limit at
both ends Is also unwise. Granted that
a child from a good home would bo
Just as well off It kept out of school
till ho was eight, years of age; this by
no menus proves' that thu many chil
dren who aro .found In our streets
would be equally well off. To the bulk
of common school children It Is safe
to say, that tho Bchool Is the chief
source of moral uplift.
Learn to Speak.
Again, to tho greater part of our
common school population English Is
not the mother-tongue, and the two
years from six to eight aro Important
to them, and to tho state, on this ac
count. They aro lmprcsslunablo years,
as nnyono who lias attempted to teach
English to Hawaiian can testify.
Another objection is, that children
who are kept out of school aro likely to
be seriously Imimscd uixm by Idle nnd
unprincipled elders in tho matter of
wage-earning; and wo may bo brought
ero long to face the painful problem
of child labor. There aro some wee
laddies among our newsboys already
who do nut look to bo much more than
six years old, and they aro out in all
sorts of weather from "early mom till
eve." Hero Is a case In point.
A Portuguese boy who was born "In
to this breathing world" without a
lawful name, was adopted by a Ha
waiian family. There are. In this
household, at least two able-bodied
men, and one woman, also able-bodied.
They have been kind, as kindness
goes, lo tho lad, but for years lie has
been a steady contributor to tho fam
ily support as a newsboy. Ho Is now
fourteen years old, or said to be, but
small am)-stunted In physique, and Is
affected with tuberculosis. A compe
tent physician declares that his lungs
are seriously Involved.
An effort has been mada to liavo
him placed fn I.eahl Homo, as tho
only chance for his recovery or relief,
but his services aro too valuable to
the family, so tho lad still starts out
at flvo In the morning, no matter how
Inclement tho weather may bo. How
much schooling ho has had deponent
salth not; but thu probability Is, that
he was often too sick to go to school,
and Just right to sell papers. The
willingness to overwork children Is al
ready present. Would not a strict en
forcing of tho compulsory school law
help to limit tho possibility of serious
abuses In this direction?
How To Economtxe.
Hut now conies the question of how
to pay out money which wo liavo not.
This Is a problem certainly, but there
aro ways of economizing to Bavo thu
money for the more Important depart
ments of government. Cut out a few
expensive clerkships; trim off a few
unnecessary offices; simplify our gov
ernment machinery; complicating It Is
If wo cannot savo enough In this
way add twenty-llvo or fifty cents n
year to the nchool tax. This Is a bold
measure to advocate, but I advocate It
boldly. Fifty extra cents a year Is
not n heavy burden to Imposo on any
able-bodied taxpaer. Taxes aro small
hcru when compared with those of oth
er cities and communities, and school
taxes give good valuo, Kvery tax
payer gets his money's worth out of
tho schools, whether ho lias chlldrcu
or not. Well conductcirsclioolg lesson

When the question of arriving nt
a compromise In regard to the con
firmation of the Mayor's nppolnlecs
as road supervisor was first broached,
ono of the conditions of tho mnjorlty
of tho Hoard wus "No playing poli
tics to the detriment of the service."
Tho question of keeping those men
who had faithfully performed their
duty was brought up, and Wilson Is
said to liavo promised that lie would
make no changes without good ica
sons. When the report of tlio Road Su
pervisor's actions was first brought
to the Hoard, Supervisor Qulnn, the
chairman of tho Road Committee,
called Wilson to task and asked him
why he had violated his promise.
"Tho men did not come to work
when they heard that I had been con
firmed," Wilson Is alleged to have
Qulnn then went after the dis
charged workmen nnd asked them
what they meant by "kicking" at be
ing let out, when they In reality had
quit. They answered thut Wilson
had sent them word that their serv
ices were no longer needed.
It is In tho stables that tho most
noticeable changes havo been made.
There Is Just one of the old men still
there, und he Is said to bavo been
left because some man hnd to be re
tained who could tell how the mules
Worked, and which anlmuls bolonged
to certain teams.
Qulnn Is a horseman before any
thing else, and It is ono of his private
beliefs that live stock should receive
considerate treatment, no matter
What else happens. The chnrirn Is
openly made that somo of Wilson's!
stablemen could not harness a goat,
and soro backs and other Infiimllles
are being prophesied.
According to the present statui of
the law, the Supervisors have no con
trol over tho actions of tho Road Su
pervisor, as far as tho engaging of
workmen Is concerned, nnd ho Is able
to play politics or anything olee to
his heart's content, Irrespective of
the effect Hint ill-advised changes
may have on tho public service.
On the other hand, tho question of
