It Is gratifying to learn from a
committee of legislators that Nuunnu
dam in all right.' The people are not
likely to forget, however, that for ex
trnvngnnco ami mismanagement nnd
wasted money thu Territorial Nuuanu
dnm stands as a more or less shaky
monument, that cannot be equaled by
all the luroin.iotenre nnd all the ex
tnivriiu ' all the Counties coni
blned. sKHEW THE PEOPLE; SPEAK.
One of the Btrlklng features of the
prtcontsesslon Of the Legislature has
been tho splendid nttendanco of our
citizens nt public hearings. This
habit and It Is to bo hoped that It
will become a habit is thu best evi
dence, of popular awakening Hawaii
has had. It has done the Legislature
good. The citizens themsohes hnc
First, tho matter of property taxa
tion brought out a good number of
men and the special Income-tax hear
ing called a larger attendance. Tho
spqnkjng was straightforward and
sensible. Then tho public-school
question was the Incentive for an nu
dlenco of men. and women that filled
the legislative hall. Again the citi
zens turned out to lend their moral
influence and favorable comment to
Administration segregation bill.
Is Is by no moans the- least iinpor-
lnt measure before tho Legislature
nd It is to the credit of the Icglsla-
,ors that It has gono thiough Its va-
wrangling. It should pass.
The peoplo Iiavo brought -them
selves Into closer relations with their
representatives, it has done a won
dcrful amount of good.
All that is needed Is moro of tho
same good work, and equally enthu
siastic outpotu lugs nt party precinct
meetings and party primaries and
party conventions when tho prelimi
nary work of politics Is going on.
