bltlon for this Terrltodry by Poder
al enactment Is an Insult to the cit
izens of Hawaii and an nttack upon
tho principles of Americanism as
exemplified In present government
of the Islands.
In nil his Congressional career the
Delegate has never struck a more
powerful blow In the Interests of
popular government than he did
when handling this Joint resolution
and the little clique of bigots that
liavo associated themselves under tho
name of the Civic Federation.
Tho position of tho Delcgnto on
tho-question of woman's suffrage is
well understood. As stated by the
II u 1 1 o t,l n at the tlmo eomo of
tho Indies of the city mndo their
appeal, they were bringing before
Congress nu entirely Independent is
sue, nnd ono bigger than they evi
dently had nny idea of. Woman's
suffrage is n problem of enough-lmJ
portanco to warrant Congressional
debates lasting through a genera
tion at least.
Delegate Kuhlo ha3 Won a victory
forfeit-government in Hawaii that
can not bq overestimated, and tno
status pt the Territory In that re
gard may bo reckoned ns securely
clinched It tho resolution In 'Its
present, form passes Congress and
receives tho approval of the Pres
ident. TO REDUCE FOOD COSTS.
Every man has to have his expla
nation for the high price of food
products theso days. Honry Clews
has advanced a very attractive con
clusion, though wo are not certain
of its being entirely original.
Clews says In his circular letter
that "Uradstrcets" reports a reces
sion In merchandise values for the
month of January of 1.7 porvecnt.,
'duo partly to tho popular agitation
against high costs of food and
partly to tho break in cotton."
"Tho true remedy for present high
prices," adds Clews, "is a , general
lncicase-of production, especially of
food products and raw materials ot
which tho supplies 'generally Are
moderate, If not actually deficient.
This country Is preeminently In need
of a great Increase in .agricultural
products. Our farmers do not begin
to. (urn, out the product per aero
that s done In Europe. In many
cases their product could bo, doubled
upon the present area by bettor and
moro scientific s stems of agricul
ture. "This Is tho only solution for tho
protont problem of chcapor food.
"In all probability It will solvo
Itself by natural means.. The great
profltB which fanners nro now mak
ing will Immonscly stimulate agri
cultural activity. Doubtless It will
attract to the agricultural classes a
higher order of .intelligence and re
sult In the one necessary thing of
Increasing tho product per acre. By
this method the farmer will not only
maintain his present , profits, but
will at the same time considerably
onlarge them; meanwhile giving tno
consumer the benefit ot a larger and
cheaper supply ot food. Should the
weather prove favorable during the
coming season there is every ren
Eon to look for n largo harvest; tho
ono thing above everything else
"which tho country needs to main
tain tho present course of prosper
It will bo noted that Clews claims
he has tho "only solution" for the
prcseut problem ot cheaper food. He
A llttlo boy of G wns playing In tho

childish way ho was trying to build a
church ot mud. A minister passed
by, and, being ot an innulsltlvo turn
of mind, nskod the llttlo fellow what
ho was doing, whereupon tho boy re
plied that ho was making a church.
"Ah, then," said tho minister, "you
will need u preacher, too."
Hut ho answered: "I ain't got dirt
enough to mnko,a minister."

That if they, 'tho head officials
thought some- of thc.men recommended
by tho partyJ wcr'o not to their lik
ing, let them If elect others and have
their names' submitted back' to tho
executive commltteo of tho party.
"It Is wrong for tho head officials,"
continued Holstcln, "to appoint men
Into omco first, nnd then submit their
names to tho executive committee for
recommendation or approval,
"This kind of practice should not bo
tolerated. It Is not Just to tho work
ers of tho party to bo dumped un
der. Sotno times tho head officials
would go to work and even suggest to
their under men that such and mich
men, presumably their frioiidi, bo ap

About Precinct Kicks.
Holstcln, who rend tho statement
mndo recently, regarding deputy sher
iff Cox nnd others ot Watnltia, w.is
much surprised to know that such sen
timents existed In tho minds of
tho pcoplo there. IIo said that tho
Walaluans, who claimed to bo Repub
licans, should not bo ashamed of hav
ing their names sent In to tho offlco ot
tho executtvo commltteo In Honolulu.
It Is tho intention of tho commlt
teo In Honolulu to obtain tho true and

Is problematical, ho will bo nccoin
