that. Some of them, however, prefer
to corn politics nnd then sit back In
their comfortable chairs nnd disgrace
themselves and their country by
their comment offered In tho name
Tho Legislature might properly
say to tho pcoplo of tho Counties, "If

A WELCOME MISSIONARY.
Hcv Chas. Dolo Is of that type of
men whom It would pay Hawaii well
to subsidize In order to retain per
manently as missionaries. For he Is
ono whoso opinions would not be
swayed by tho subsidy. He would
make tho religious moro nearly re
ligious and bring tho Irreligious into
tho fold where every man belongs.
It Is n particular ptcasuro in this
land to listen to a public speaker
from the pulpit who dares to say that
there rS another side to any of tho
great problems that face this commu
nity nnd mankind In general. It Is
a great and good thing for the peo
ple to hear tolcrauco voiced without
crlflcc of either principle or high
. .ndnrds. It makes for better man
hood nnd womanhood to have n man
of culturo nnd cxperlenco tell the ex
cessively "good" man Hint ho hns to
take caro that ho does not forgot
himself nnd do ns much or moro harm
than the radical "bad" man. It Is
n pleasure to hear the gospel of In
telligent leadership as opposed to tho
whip' of arbitrary, Intolerant, nllcg
edly moral driver. The former gains
results; the latter arouses men's com
battveness. If the eminent publicist hns some
curious Ideas about tho peaco of the
world, we may nt least Join with him
In the hope while still retaining
our Navy that same day tho world
will see n great victory for his doc
trine as the crowning event of the
little victories It Is gaining from
tlmo to time.

Harper, whose resignation under
