Why should any American In ior sheriffs In their respoctlvo counties

confidence to appoint as United
States District Judge, bo even
thought of as a "carpotbngger"?
This cry raised against men under!
consideration for high positions In
this Territory Is nn insult not only
to Americans generally but the
President In particular. If some of;
our people don't know It, they will ,
(In (I out sooner or later that the car-1
petbagger cry Is n mighty poor onej
to raise. Tho candidacy of efficient
men can bo fought on the merits of
ability and Bpeclal fitness for public
office. 4 Tho 11 u 1 1 o 1 1 n believes that
H. K. Cooper would make the best
United States District Judge this Tcr-1
rltory could have, but if tho appoint-,
ment of a local man could only be ;
obtained through dubbing a main--land
candidate a "carpetbagger," the
contest would bo degraded to a nnmo

men would not take part.
FOR THE SCHOOLS.
American men and women who be
lieve in tho Integrity of tho Ameri
can public school system should be
out In forco this evening at the hear
ing of the Houso Committee on Hdu
catlon, which has under considera
tion tho bill to reduce tho period ot
compulsory school attendanco for the
children of these Islands.
It U a most extraordinary thing
thut after all theso years of Hawaii's
history, during whlrh Its public
schools have been a sourco of prido
and an example for others, a serious
suggestion should bo made to take
a backward stop In public school ad
ministration. What underlying motives thoro
may be among the advocates of tho
bill we can only surmise. On the
face of things, the Territory finds
Itself forced to cconomlzo, nnd some
of our citizens propose to do this by
lessening the number of children iu
tho public schools.
What miserable economy! I low
far removed from the spirit of Amer
ican Institutions! What an admis
sion of weakness, that the Territory
of Hawaii In tho days of Its greatest
Industrial prosperity and most
marked moral progress should go bo
foro the world or Its peoplo oven to
seriously discuss as admissible u fin
ancial cheese-paring process that
strikes at the little children!
Tho public school has been tho bul
wark of the Nation. This Territory
can better afford to Increase, the
school oxpense fifty per cent aa an
Investment for the future than to

The Terrible Reporters.
somothlng tcrnulo has happened in
tho Houso. The exalted position, the
peerless wisdom, tho Immaculate vir
tue, the Jou'-llko majesty of the Hon
orable Representatives has not been
fittingly recognized by tho tmportlncnt
press. The Irreverent reporters who
aro condemnod to sit day after day and
listen to the ravlngH of certain of tho
windy orators have neglected to take
oft their hats, fall upon their knees,
throw dust upon tho debnsed heads
and beat their foreheads upon the
ground wheu they saw somu of the
modem Bolons approaching.
Worso yet, tho same disrespectful
representatives of the press have hail
the unspcakablo audacity to point out
the flaws In cortaln of tho frcuk bills
Introduced by somo of those latter
day Imitations ot Pericles, Socrates
aud Demosthenes. They have gono
further; they have actually Insinuated
that tho virtuous members were not
purely disinterested when they Intro
duced certain measures that there
might bo an African concealed some
times In the legislative woodpile.
Hut tho reporters havo been duly
and horribly punished for their trea
son. They havo been Muzzled. They
wero this morning sat uion by tho
Spoakcr, bastlnnadoed with tho Dig
Stick, threatened with excommunica
tion by bell, book and candle, told that
If In tho future they did nut show thu
jropor degree of awo In looking upon
nnd speaking of thu Honorable mem
bers, they would bo ejected, fired,
kicked out, bounced.
Tliere is ono Honorablo member
from tho Fifth District who has been
doing tho baby act all during tho ses
sion. Three times during tho present ses
sion ho has trotted to thu Speaker and
begged to be allowed to iutroduco n
lesolutlou to havo tho press barred
from the House,
This morning, however, he, and somo
other Mko him were so Insistent upon
the matter that tho Speukcr promised
to uso tho Hlg Stick and nrooerlv mm-
Ish tho wretches who had ventured to
Insinuate that there Is aught but Sol
omonllko wisdom concealed In tho to
piece of tho Honorablo Members or
or any of the Honorablo Members.
So, when the Houso was properly In
session ami the minutes had been dis
posed of, tho Speaker hauled out his
book or rules, out out on his most
terriblo frown, took a firm grip of
the UIg Stick, and proceeded to hand
It to tho reporters. Ho Informed them
that they aro under the rulos of tlio
House and that, If any member Intro
duced a resolution to havo them fired
nnd tho resolution wcro adopted, thoy
coma ue n red. no stated that tho at
tention ot thu Speaker hail beon called

members ot tho House, and ho trusted

I After playing with Superintendent
'Mnrston Campbell's bill to enforce the

I Somo of thent tried to make the point
.that the Public Works Department
'should collect Ur bills through civil
suits. Rico nnd Coney stated that the
ieason for tho blfl was that the Oov-
ernment needs the 162,008 which is
delinquent on sower rates, nnd Hint If
were done by civil actions, It would be
necessary to bring over 2000 Btilts. Hut
tiieir sensible arguments were unavail
ing. The majority of the members did
not approve of any measure to compel
a man to pay his debts to tho govern
ment, and they burled the measure be
neath a pile of votes.

National Guard Needs.
A communication from President
Waldron of tho Merchants' Associa
tion waH read, transmitting to the
Houso the roport of the spectut com
mittee of tho Association relative to
thu status ot tho National Ouard of
Hawaii. The committee makes a num
ber of suggestions for legislation nf
fectlng tho Ouard. Tho commltteo rec
ommends that legislation be passed
carrying necessary appropriations for
tho following purposes:
To Increase tho National Ouard to
0110 regiment of Infantry with 0110 hos
pital company and 0110 signal com
pany; To plaeo the departmental work of
the Guard upon a busluess basis, pay
ing tho Bamo remuneration therefor
as to tho heads of other departments;
To pay Territorial troops when
called u'ion for riot duty or any other
duty necessary In tho opinion of tho
Governor for tho preservation of ord

For tho erection of a new armory.
To provldo for a tax uiion firearms.
Tho committee believes that as a
matter of revcuuo a lax of ll per an

A long petition, signed by G29 clt
iicus, protesting ugalnst any change
In tho present liquor laws and urging
that the Houso Indefinitely postpone
tho Moore bill, wnt presented by Ka-
manoulii. Tho petition states that tho
proposed amendment of tho Liquor
Law virtually destroys tho roal mean
ing of that measure Tlio law has not
yet been so thoroughly tried as to
show what aro Its defects, If such exist.
llio petitioners bcllovo It Is tho best
law tho Territory has ever enjoyed:
under Its Influence the number of sa
loons havo been decreased. The law
ts In tho Interest of public morally and
decency. Further, on account of the
ruct that tho voters wcro led to bc
llovo that no attempt would bo mado
to change, tho liquor laws at tho nrcs-
cnt session,, nnd therefore tho ques
tion has not been acted upon by tho
voters and they havo not had an op
portunity to express their views
through the ballot box.
