what more than frequently makes

to act on one definite Issue. That
Is why the referendum has become
popular among a class of people who

Charles Scaddlng, Protestant Episco

As a further Introductory note we
would suggest to many good people
that they are putting the good na

It would be folly, however, for

long list of tactical errors and then
try to lay tho blame on tho Legislature.
RESPECT FORJHE ANTHEM.
It does not appear whether or not
"the man without a couutry" had a fav
orlto natfoual anthem, but It does seem
quite plain to tho observer that thcro
are Borne patriotic Americans In (ho
city of Honolulu who should ho ro
minded of tho fact that tho "Star
Spangled Banner" Is the national an.
them of the Unitod Statos of Amer
ica. This may appear to bo n lather
trifling fact, but It ft accompanlnd by
the natural assumption that when Its
strains nio heard by an audience It
should ba accorded tho respect that Is
given to tho national anthems of thu
othor nations of tho earth.

'fix up the church notices' for publi

In this direction. I am told that
week after week anil year nfter year
there are poured Into tho newspaper
offices these carelessly written no

chlrography, with no regard for tho
style of tho paper for which ttlby

odds and ends of paper, and often on
both sides, nnd thrown together in
a haphazard sort of way.
"Tho task of preparing several
hundred notices has bocome the most
detested work in tho newspaper of

influence on the working staff Is In
a largo mcasuro undone. It Is only
