What Honolulu needs in improved
steamship service is more first-class
local passenger steamers. These will
not come and cannot be obtained if
the people of the town keep up a
knocking campaign against Ameri
can shipping. Far better is it to
"boost" for Hawaii and secure the in
vestment of more local capital for
the upbuilding of passenger accom
modations on lines that are carrying
Hawaii's freight. ,
The Orantl Jury did what might be
expected In the Cathcnrt case.
It Governor Krear has any appre
ciation of men who have served tho
Administration loyally, ho will name
J. V. Pratt as Treasurer.
After a prolonged nocturnal search
through a slx-blt atlas, tho fat-Jowlod
polyglot has dlscorcrod tho Interpre
tation of Shelk-uI-Islam, lie could
learn much of civic decency from the
(treat Ilrltaln will learn one thing
from tho Australian newspapermen
If It has not been already Impressed.
The newspapers stand united for a
'whlto Australia," though they may
disagree on how the white men
should run tho country.
When tho expenses of tho Terri
tory under the present appropriation
bill are, within the Income, thcro Is
no' reason why the Govornor should
llml fault. It will bo thcllrst expe
rience of a Territorial ejcccutlvo (wlth
an appropriation law that does not
requlro legislative functions on his
Tho man who bought a through
ticket but could not get Mhrough berth
can't find any great Improvoment for
Honolulu pasfcengers through tho sus
pension of tho coastwise shipping law
Ills complaint Is with tho through-lino
policies and tho suspension of all tho
coastnUo laws In tho country would
not chaugo thorn. What will correct
tho Honolulu sonlco and glvo'tho peo
ple proper accommodation Is more
local steamers carrjlng passengers.
Then tho man who comes to Honolulu
can plan Ills round trip with Absolute
confidence that ho wilt .get on tho
steamer for which ho Is booked. Any
way It Is better to boost for an Amur-
lean Honolulu and American shipping
lino- than to bo .forever nagging with
halt truths and destructive criticism.
THE NEW JUDGES.
President Taft's appointment of
Judgo Woodruff for second United
States District Judge In this Torrl
tory does not come as a surprise to
those hnvlng a knowledge of whut
was going on In Washington and In
tho Capitol building.
It has been known for many weeks
that Mr. Woodruff was slated for the
federal Judgeship. This Is the man
whoso name was on tho tongue ot
Mr. Carter whon he was asked by
tho II u 1 1 e 1 1 n If he know who was
likely to be named as Judge. Carter
refused to say.
Tho most oxtraordlnnry feafuro ot
the preliminaries, however, was (no
straight denlnl made by Governor
.rroar to the question of the B u 1 1 e -1
1 n reporter. The Governor said he
did not know the mini the President
.had In mind. All iof which has a
bearing on tho reliability ot Informa
tion given for publication In what
should bo reliable sources.
This, however, Is meroly a slde
lllght, Tho main proposition Is
whether the people ot Hawaii should
be satisfied with the appointment.
The I) u 1 1 e 1 1 n believes they
should be very much pleased with
tho selection the President has made.
This paper docs not now and hopes
It may never be moved to sympathize
with the little coterie of selfish ma
nipulator and local offlec-seekcrs
Who raise tho cry of "carpetbagger"
against any American citizen ot the
mainland appointed to olllco In the
This cry was started locally by the
organ of prejudice and un-American-Isms,
nnd It Is known Hint the voice
was sUlled-ln -this case only when
Bomo woeks ago tho gang dlsiovercd
that President Taft Intended to name
Mr. Woodruff anyway. Hence uny

further criticism of the so-called'
"carpetbagger" would merely antag
onize the President.
Wo have no doubt that the wholq
"carpetbagger" sentiment as It finds
expression In this Territory Is dis
tasteful to the President,
Mr, Woodruff Is n man whoso pre
vious ofllrtal associations should par
ticularly equip him for the unofficial
responsibilities that may devolve
upon him as the representative of the
Administration In this Territory. He
has n splendid official record behind
him nnd he comes to his new Uutlns
absolutely free from any of thctlocal
alliances that so often ninko for
government of, by, nnd for favorites
In this Territory.
He Is not a pensioner and so far ad
known he has no cousins and rela
tives who aro likely to call on him
and discuss tho policies of his deci
sions beforo they aro rendered.
Mr. Woodruff can exert a great In-,
fluenco for good In this Territory nnd
this paper will be keenly disappoint-;
cd It ho falls short of sterling" Amer
Tho return of Antono Perry to tho
Supreme bench Is undoubtedly highly
pleasing to Governor Krear nnd Chief,
Justtco Hnrtwell. With Mr. Perry
as the second member of tho major
ity of two there will be none of the
Terences of opinion that wero
i cared by those who objected to Do
'lolt because he has shown a spirit'
of Independence, as well as a knowl-4
edge of tho Haw. There may bo
somo further travesties on Justice
come from the Supremo Court, but;
Judgo Terry, having had tho experi
ence with going too far, will probi
ably profit by It. -'Mr. Perry Is nat-
urally of the monarchical turn of
mind In doaltug.wlth advanced Amer
ican Ideals, but ho has tho commend
ablo quality of speaking his mind
Mr. Whitney's appointment to tho
Circuit bench Is accepted as n forc
gono conclusion. So far as wo know
ho was tho only candidate, and his
special Interest In tho treatment of
the Juveniles in tho courts of Justice
will opon up a new flojd for which
Mr. Whitney Is very well equipped.
Unless wo aro very much mistaken,
tho moral Influence of tho now Fed
eral Judge will be ns potent In its
bearing on ttic'future history of Oils
Territory as his decisions from tho

ot tho Colonies who passed through

ference ot tho newspaper editors and
proprietors of tho Empire
As a matter of fact, thcro was very
little talk among tho travelers as to
whnt they aro going for. They aro

course, that the primary purpose of
tho nsscmbly is to strengthen 'tho
bonds ot fraternity between tho'

Tho visiting newspaper peoplo
were a thoroughly representative
party, coming from nil parts of Aus

very enthusiastic In -their pralso ot

As soon as tho party had finished
lunch on board tho Marama they

down to hard business on tho bills to

nary to meet 'tho 'Executive in his
shirt sleeves, but I rather lilted It,
you know," commented ono (of tho
Australians. Hawaii's Governor Im
pressed them favorably.
From tho Capitol they went to tho
Aquarium, which camo In for its
usual moasuro of pnilae. Then lo
tho Moana Hotel, whoro after a surf

Two of tho visitors, Mr. Droit of
tho Auckland 8(nr and Mr. Cohen of

Honolulu somo twenty -years ago and
they naturally remarked on tho
growth of tho city and thq'grent Im
provements to be noted. All praised
tho streets and enthused over tho
generally attractive nppcaranco of
