Merchants of Honolulu need not

lisucs an order ngalnst jiayliiB of
diluted men, while ships are In this
The cause for this order will bo
the, hullnballoo raised by n certain
section of this comnninlty over alleg
ed sale of beer on Sunday, and the
rank misrepresentation and studied
exaggeration with which their news
paper organs presented the matter
before the public.
As to tho virtue of tho assault rn
the Honolulu brewery, tho Hullo
1 1 n Is not prepared to speak until
the courts aro heard from. Wo havo
lint heard of complaints against tho
biowery from tho naval officers.
Willi the misrepresentation of con
ditions In this city we arc vitally
Itecords of tho nnvy will show that
when two thousand men were grant
ed shore liberty on a Saturday night
and Sunday not more than seven
men were arrested for drunkenness.
That's a pretty good record for this
town and a mighty good one for tho
Yet, In the face of ,thla fact, two
'oj the newspapers of-'llonolulu de
voted columns of spaco( and all avail
able scare-head type to prove that
that Sunday was marked by a sail
ors' saturnalia of beer, booze, broken
bottles and buzz wagons'.
" These false reports go back to the
homes on the mainland, to the fami
lies of present enlisted men and of
prospective enlisted men, with the
result that this town'M get a name
for drunken dlsorder'.secortd to nono
of tho worst on tho inalnland. Such
a reputation Is outrageously wrong,
mid no one deserves blame but tho
people whose alleged purpose Is to
purify Honolulu, when as n matter
of fact they are damning It eternally
In the esteem of many right-minded
officers of the army and navy, and at
least an equal number of civilians,
Honolulu citizens In general and
Honolulu merchants In particular
may tako It as a absoluto fact that
they will receive mighty few favors
from officers of tho army or tho navy
when tho prcsenco 'of n naval fleet
or n largo body of troops is marked
by studied exaggeration of tho ox
hubernnt spirits and even boisterous
ucss of a nunibci of enlisted men.
This city Is.very attractive to the
officer, but the officer who talks
straight from the shoulder without
mincing mntters, be ho In tho army
or navy, Is, to say the least, not over
enthusiastic concerning tho manner
In which thconltstcd men aro dealt
with, or the pylj reputation' eomo of
Honolulu's own people unnecessarily
give their own town.
MERCHANTS AND STEAMERS.
Not a few of tho American steam
ship operators In speaking of tho Ini
piovement of tho ocean passenger
servleo between this city nnd the
mainland have stated to tho Hullo
1 1 n that the great difficulty they
fata In making plans that involve
millions Is the fickle naturo of the
Honolulu business mon, mnro partlc
ulaily tho mcicantlle interests.
These steamship men stato that
thoy nre, expected to Invest sovral
lulllloiiH of dollars In passenger steam
ers on tho assumption that they will
lecolvo the support of the business
community for continuing tho pro
tection given American ships. Aft
er this money Is Invested nnd the
ship put on tho run, they have no
leasonablo assurance, judging finm

not be. The Ameilcnu people will

Ruination to gain reorganization
Is so far from the Ideals nnd prac
tical workings of tho American rep
resentatives In Congress thnt the
prospect of suspension of thu coast
wiso shipping laws In their applica
tion to Hawaii Is very slight Indeed,
and the real lsuo ns It will dctclop

local people In the Interests of local
traffic or trust to what may bo given

Views expressed by our citizens
are Interesting and Instructive, and
not the least educational feature Is
the fact that no two offer the same

To say that our locally ownod

branch of business progress.
Thero is not the slightest doubt
that the time will soon come when

START AGAIN WITH PARTY
Most ccrttlnly was tho word
reorganization" unfortunately chus-
en In connection with tho mcct-
Ig of tho six Republican mem
bers of tho County Commlttco
and Deputy Attorney General I.orrln
Andrews for the purpose of naming
a commltteo of outsiders to do things
to the party.
Therefore let our committeemen
and fellow Republicans rcf.aln from
fcrpetuatlng tho error.
Pretty nearly everybody In ti.p
Republican rank and file feels that
however well Intcntloned tho move
ment may have been, tho proposition
os related to the general welfnro ot
tho Republican party was not unlike
a Japanese gottlng off a Rapid Tran
sit car backwards.
Tarty men aro not qulto ready or
the Territorial officials to assumo tho
management ot the party when the
Territorial administration has nt
least not broken Its neck to see that
Republicans were always In office,
and has not always played squarely
with very prominent members of tho
Ilusiness men In tho organization
nnd among tho workers on tho out
side aro not yet quite ready to have
themselves reorganized nnd politi
cally rojuvenated by philanthropic
gentlemen who have Important du
ties on their hands In looking after
tho welfaro ,of the party by giving
undivided attention to their duty as
Hut without wasting nny tlmo
over personalities that might stir
up more strife, let the Republicans
devote themselves to starting over
again, if the so-called reorganization
move may bo classed ns u start.
Since quite a number of people
havo been roused by tho' false stmt,
let tho work go forward under a now
and generally acceptable scheme of

might it not bo well to call n general
conference of Iho officcis of tho Re
publican party in this city? Let
the conference Include every Repub
lican precinct officer who will come,
who wants to know what to do, or
who has n suggestion to make.
Thus wlH the party managers show
that recognition of tho party workers
that tho six reorganizes with n sev
enth ndilsor most unfortunately for
got. Thus will the party free Itself
from tho situation created by the
meeting of tho seven, when, by Infer
ence, nil, or n great many Republi

into the scrap heap ot Incompetents,
lackadazlcal, disinterested, devil-may-cnie

want It done In such n way that tho
Republican party will not suffer
more harm than Injury. We arc not
now prepared lo drny that three
thousand four hundred r.nd nlnety
flo Republicans will unhesitatingly
follow In the wake of a party led by
Lorrln Andrews, for Instance. Just
nt tho present time some rather In
fluential men of tho city havo inti
mated that they might not.
Rather thnn enter into any way
side rows over this point, the 11 u 1 -
1 o 1 1 n would suggest that the regu
larly elected officers of the Republi
can party shall be allowed to handle
the situation preliminarily at least,
and thnt they bo asked to do it.
Then all of the citizens, including
the Reorganized Republicans nnd
tho Working Republicans and the In
ventors of the reorganization meet
ing, can get together and sacrifice
themselves on tho altar of civic duty

I bellevo thai tho solution lies In tho
cooperation of tho business men of

J. T. WARRKN, Honolulu Pholo
Supply Co.: I think wo business men
tliould Insist thill tho Amciicati-lla-w.illnn,
Oceanic and Mntsou steam
hlilp companies should furnish suffi
cient passenger facilities In return for
tho fi eight that tho merchants should
plcdgo them. I do not think thnt tho
suspension of coastwise shipping lnrs
should be lesiirloil to until that falls.
I think that ship subsidy Is t ro of u
national question and would not col
lect local conditions for n Inn;: tlmo
but I am emphatically In favor of It.
I was formerly In favor ot tho suspen
sion ot coastwlso shipping laws but I
now seo that there aro other reiuodlcs.
Tho Mntson company deserves a great
deal of credit for Iho mnnticr In which
they linvo given Honolulu passenger j
W. 11. McINERNY, Mclncrny Shoo
Store: I am very strong In favor of
the suspension of coastwlso laws until
such tlmo ns thero aro vessels to no I
commodate tho passenger traffic. I
think this cry, "patriotism," refusing
tho suspension fiom n patriotic stand
point, Is JiiFt n wnsto of energy ami
patriotism fur tho reason thnt tho rep
resentative peoplo In Washington seem
to havo no patriotic feeling In the mat
ter whatever. Hero wo nro, n little
colony, waving tho American flag tiver
our heads when thero Is no such spirit
displayed nnywhero else In the United
States. I think that the remedy Is to
wlro tho American ling off tho seas
and adopt tho most fortunato meth
ods to nwakon theso people. As far
ns the Matron Company Is concerned,
I iVi rit think that they hno qualified
In nny wny In passenger accommoda
tions. I think what they should do ls
to placo a perccntago of their slock
en the locnl mnrkct to ns to mako tho
company ns far as pocslblo Hawaiian.
I urn very strong In favor of ship sub
tidy, which I think would correct tho
CEC1I I1ROWN, president of First
National Ilank ot Hawaii: "In favor
of tho Matsou lino ordering n new
boat? I am-most decidedly. I think
Iho coastwlso shipping laws should bu
lifted for passengers ojily. 1 inn In
favor of ship subsidy."
OHO. It. CATlTKIl, Hawullan Trust
Company: 1 believe self-prcservatlou
Is tho first law and If wo cnu't get
local service, tho peoplo of Hawaii
most certainly ought lo iippcal to Con
gress for lellef. I believe limhlp sub
sidy. ' r
T. A. SCIIAHFRR, F. A. Schncfcr &
Co.: I am In favor or tho suspension
ot tho coastwlso shipping laws. Thero
Is it proviso attached which penults
the President to annul It nt his discre
tion. I think this Is n very good pro
viso. Most naturally I nm In favor
of tho Mntsou Company building it
new ship, but 1 don't know tho state
of Ihelr lllinnres. I think ship subsidy
Is thq only thing thnt will savo tho
