The Russians who are making n
public camping ground of the streets
and the public parks of the city, who
are living In miserable huts In the
midst of more miserable surround
ings, are an Insult to tho good namo
of this city. Their dirt and squalor
smirch moro than the persons who
have elcoted to bury themselves In
the mire of their own folly.
The city, tho Territory, the offi
cials generally, all bear a serious re
sponsibility In allowing these condi
tions to continue.
These Hussions are today a charge
upon the community, anil vvorso.
They should be Bent back to the
country from which they came at tho j
earnest opportunity. Tins is de
manded by the rules of ordinary hu
manity, for no government has n

Much since Is given In the morn

The Inference Is that a vote for
Prohibition In this Territory would

Kxactly tho reverse is the fact.
Prohibition In this Territory means
nothlpg more or less than the Im
portation of moro liquor direct from
Pacific Coast ports. Somo of It may
appear on tho manifest as "merchan
dise" tho cloak that covers bo many
sins of Prohibition but tho liquor
will come In just ,tne same.

While making the situation worso

Is concerned, tho Territory by. Pro

Its policing expense and reduce Its

WOOLLEY AND SELF GOVERNMENT.
With characteristic effrontery,
Agent Woolley seriously announces
that the plebiscite on July 2C will
"be a line test of tho capacity of the
peoplo for self-government."
Mr, Woolley would have It appear
that the competency of tho pcoplo
of Hawaii to exercise, their constltu
tlonal rights was nnd Is an unknown
quantity, and that the dangerous
power 'of casting a ballot was placed
in their hands without due consider
ation. Agent Woollcv's "fln test of self
government" statement was 1nadO an
his return to the Territory, and sim
ply bears out the Insulting reflections
that the hired help cast upon tho
citizens of Hawaii during tho course
ot the Congressional hearings. Agent
Woolley was very careful to avoid
making any referenco to the fact
that Hawaii was an Independent,
sclf-fjovornlng, sovereign stale before
he knew Just where It was on tho
map, and In the exercise of Us sov
ereign powers controlled tho liquor
business, having as Us modern cul
mination the existing liquor law,
which Agent Woolley himself had to
admit before Congress was the best
licensing law he has over seen.
Tho extremists of the Woolley typo
should support an amendment to the
constitution of the United States
whereby any person not voting for
prohibition, blind pigs and swipes
would be deprived of their franchise,
as falling to meet the Woolley smug
estimate on the "hue test of self
government." 'It Is ccrtnlnly marvelous good for
tune' for the Territory of Hawaii to
havo In Us midst n gentleman from
Chicago whose sacrificing labors as
an agent at Washington have given
Hawaii au opportunity of showing
the whole world that It Is capable
of self-government In the Woolle
estimation casting aside tho Inci
dental nnd trilling fadt that Hawaii
was a sovereign state for genera
tions. What was tho Answer to a lead
ing question, nsked Woolley by n
member of tho Sennto committee?:

I PRACTICAL PROHIBITION

Tho Times, the leading paper of
