THE GOVERNOR'S HABIT.
Most everyone feels Hint tho (lov-
omor has suffered n crushing do-
feat lp consequence of the success
of Delegate Kuhlo's Judicial slate.
Tho attitude of tho Governor him
self lias given force' to this conclu
sion. Just 'what the inside history may
bo, furnishes n fruitful held of con
jecture, but ut the present time
there la probably no one in Honolulu
who knows 'It, and the whole dis
cussion Is based ou Imagination. We
doubt that the Inventors of whys
nnd wherefiircs will reach' any other
sensible conclusion than that sug
gested by this paper Delegate Ku-
hlo was successful by virtue of his
eprcsentlng public opinion aftd
standing for the recognition of the
Peoplo as against a few self-selected
directors of our destiny.
Ono plinso of the situation may or
may not have occurred to tho minds
of thoso Interested.

THE C6ST 8F LIVING,
Living costs hate increased ou ac

those things once regarded as lux

Agriculture, who Is one of the lat

Prof. Whitney makes n very In
teresting statement of the case, but
when we slop to' consider thnt tho' pres

the class of goods that the poor man

there may bo something of truth In
tho conclusion of the man who says

has been Influenced by something be
sides Increased consumption.
Cost of living is necessarily a
mnny-sldcd subject, nnd since Prof.
Whitney deals principally with the
agricultural phase of tho question,
his comment has. especial Interest In
this part of the world. He is quot

"The Secretary of Agrlculturo has
for years been calling attention to
the Increase in the amount and value
of our crops. Why the Increased
cost, If productivity has more thnn
kept pace with the per capita
growth? Obviously because" of- the
increased demand per' capita. The
amount we consumo Is In some sense
pioportlonnl to tho variety of our
foods and our ability to purchase.
We are as a nation very rich: wages
are high, nnd we can afford variety,
and we all enjoy far greater variety
than wo did fifty years ngo. The
markets in our cities, .large arid'
small, already have In December
spring vnnd summer vegetables,
fruits and meats at prices within tho
each of the masSes of our people.
"Wo have tempting varieties' of

exports, nnd tho high price of food

general prosperity, do not, to my
mind, Indlcato danger of starvation,

future tlmo to tone down the high
living we are at present enjoying.,
It does show that our farmers

QUANTITY VS. QUALITY
Kdltor Evening Ilullotln: I
am watching, not with Interest, but
with amazement, the general trend ot
things educational in these' Islands.
My umazement Is not caused by any
Inefficiency In the lino of quality of
tho educational machinery throughout
tho Territory nnd in this cty In par
ticular, but it seems to lack quantity.
1 refer, to It as "educational machin
ery," for such It Is. Can anyone nnmo
n ploco of machinery, however Intri
cate, however flnoly adjusted, that will
turn 'out as Unbilled and valuable a
product for the benefit of the world
ns a propcrlymanaged and adequate
public school system?
In cities whero I have heretofore
resided thero has been n something
higher than civic pride connected with
tho public school system; a something
that would almost make a man fight
If the least shadow of doubt were ex
pressed that their public schools were
not tho best In quality, quantity and
efficiency of uny city In tho United
States. I certainly find no such fight
ing blood hero.
Honolulu deems to be trying to get.
along with just ns.llttlo as possible of
schoolhouBos, teachers nnd, I am sorry
to any, teachers salaries.
I am amaied at what citizens, can
be thinking about who would Inject
tho least obstruction In tho path of
rreo and unlimited education. While
it Is free here, as Is tho case In all
parts of the United States, it Is lim
ited to such nn extent that hundreds
of children were turned awny at tho
opening of the school torm somo littlo
while ago. Who Is responsible for
such a. state of affairs?
Lot those who would In any manner
clog the wheels or this educational ma
chinery take a glance over tho reports
of tho sugar planters and see how
much labor, time, thought, money, sci
entific research, experimental work,
chemical analyses and the like Is be
ing devoted by, those Interested for
tho solo purpose of producing a better,
finer sugar and more of it thnn was
produced last yedr.
Is that not a sufficient lesson ns to
what ought to bedono for tho coming
generation for those who are to take
our places In a few years?
Notwithstanding all that the plant
era may do In tho way of scientific
manipulation. Urn result Is only Bunar
Just what It was twenty years ago
sun, it is a grade of 'sugar far. supe
