LACKS COMMON HONESTY.
Kxpcrlcnco during tho Legislature
and previous Incidents have created
tho Impression fast growing Into a
popular conviction that little it any
dependence can bo placed on tho In
timation of policies, and not a few of
the direct statements, given out from
tho chief executive offices of the Ter
ritory. In other words thore Is a lack of
common honesty in dealing with tho
public. Some people call It iUpI(-
macy. It Is eternally foolish, if It bo
entirely free from obloquy
How frequently hns the answer to
a direct nnd altogether reasonable
query put to the Executive been met
with an evnslvo or untrustworthy re
sponse? The pcoplo have been m.ts

como to expect It, and goern them

If nny agreement on public poli
cies were mado between the Governor
of tho Territory of Hawaii nnd any
local Interests, would It have been an
open affair of whloh the peoplo were
given full knowledge?
Tho situation Is such in this Terri
tory that the question answers itself.
Tho difference between the local
standard and that ot tho mainland Is
that thero Is a local lack of common
honesty In dealing with tho peoplo
on public matters ot which they have
a right to know, and having the right

Hon, Marslon Campbell, Super
intendent of Public Works,
Honolulu, T. It.
Dear Sir: Yours of tho 20th
Inst, with Inclosed klawo bean
to hand. Tho Insect Infesting
the bean Is a weevil, commonly
so called, Druchus sp. scientifi
cally. It Is closely related to
tho common bean weevil, though
qulto dlstUict from it. We have
at least two species of wcc II af
fecting klawo beans In tho vi
cinity of Honolulu, and proba
bly moro ot them nnd on all tho
Islands. So fnr wo hnvo becu
unable to breed nny parasites
from any stngo of the weevil,
and for a check wo aro wholly
dependent upon cattlo to dovour
them in tho bean. Their pres
ence, however, makes storage
of tho bean for nny length ot
tlmo unsnfo. Hero Is where
tho pulverizing mnchlno that
Mr. ltencnr Is cndcaorlng to
invent will benefit us. How
ever, on pods to be stored It Is
posslblo to provent much dam
ngo by tho weevils by fumigat
ing tho benns with enrbon bl
sulfldo and Btorlng In scrccnuif
quarters. Tho woells wero
very abundant this year, nnd
laid Innumerable eggs oi nil
kinds of legumo pods. .Many
pods wero opened with Kveiy
bean In them Inhabited Hy n
weevil grub. Tho situation
looked serious to tho entomolo
gists, yet no complnlnts nbout
serious damage reached us from
Superintendent of Entomology.

dny of tho session that theio woro
muny men In Honolulu whom I could
namo for tho trcnsurorshlp and who
would bo confirmed If I would Bend
tlx-dr names down to tho Senate. Hut
to mo tho question was nut that ot
finding a man who would bo confirmed
but of finding n man sultublo for tho
place. I did not find such a man, so I
sent down no nomination. It Is prob
nblo that almost nny man whom I
might havo nominated tho last day of
tho sesBlon would hao been confirmed,
but that wasn't tho question with mo.
I wanted to nnd tho right man."
In tho meantime, tho work of tho
Treasurer Is being dono by Deputy
Henry Hnpal. Hut as tho law does not
glvo tho Deputy power to sign ccrtnln
necessary papers that It may bo nec
essary to huo signed, the Governor
states that ho will nppolnt somo one,
