Every noble acquisition is attend-
td with its rislvs, and he who fears
to obtan the one must not expect
to obtain the other. Metastasio.
Here's to the budding millionaires
of the automobile association,
Obviously the Supreme Court be
lieved Pern Bhould be Mayor of Ho
nolulu. May wo hope that an Increasing
number of citizens will resolve to
make It a most miserable Christmas
and a wretchedly unhappy New Year
for tho Honolulu mosquito
If the President were to put It brief
ly ho would say that the departments
need the money to provide the natur
al needs of a great and dc eloping
country That's all there Is to It.
Oen Kunston's return to the Phil
ippines will gle til tn a test to proe
whether he is ns capable In the mil
itary demands of pcaco ns he vvua in
bringing about the pacific conditions
It will be possible but by no means
proper for tho contest between our
Chinese 'residents nnd the Chinese
Consul to resohe Itself Into some
thing affer the nature of the ancient
battles with Chinese stink pots.
f people might Bhow their apprecla
J tlon of Mr. Isenberg's offer to clean
the weeds out of the Punchbowl park,
by tearing down their wooden fences
. and thus adding their mite to tho
I beautlllcation of residential Hono
lulu. . Silence is mighty valuable when It
costs $100 to make n passing remark,
but others have paid more for the
same prlv liege. It wns SsiOO that a
San Francisco rnan paid for saying
what he pleased when tho Jury In the
famous Durant case was passing.
Perhaps the desire of the Chamber
of Commerce to do politics depends
somewhat on what it Is asked to do
politics for. Politics Is tho science of
, government and business organize
,tlons have no reason to evade the re
expansibilities of that line of work.
t Taft and Dickinson are right. The
money Is needed and the work should
) be done. It is Just as important to
i the country as a fence is necessary
for the backyard of every mainland
. farmer who would be suro that his
neighbors shall not encroach on his
garden, plot when ho Is not looking.
.WHERE IS KUHI0 7
, People are wondering where Kuhlo
stands in referenco to the McCrosson
bills, or the water steals as some are
commencing to call them. Kuhlo has
"been In the public eye now for many
years. Ills character, his abilities, his
'''failings, his record have been mat
tera: of goneral public interest. Ho
has been the subject matter of much
adverse and hostile comment, but ono
, thing stands out clear and Indlsput
able -in, his record It has been abso
lutely ah honest, honorable, strnlglit-
fortvurd, career, without tho sugges
tion, direct or indirect, of graft or
promotion of private or special Inter
ests at tho oxpenso of public interests.
" Yet people are commencing to won
der where- Kuhlo stands tn regard to
the McCrosson bills.
' He allowed his name to be used In,
jtlio Introduction of these bills. Tlili
can be explained by his statement that
the often extends that courtesy to Ha
(wullan citizens without becoming
sponsor for the bill so Introduced nnd
reserving the right to oppose the Hlto
jipahy If they turn out, In bis Judg
mentto be against tho public Inter
est, ( J)at word has como recently from
Washington that McClellan, Mr Ki.
bio's secretnry, Is working hand In

What does It mean? Kuhlo ennot
re. id McCrosson's schemo to rob tho
Wulnlun Plantation of Its water lights
at Wahlawa without realizing that ho
Is ostensibly standing for nn titteily
discreditable measure Kuhlo c.itino'
read McCiosson's general irrigation
bill without understanding and iu.
iziug that It Is n bill to nullify tho re
strictions plated by Congress upon
tho executive control of the public
lands In the Interests of the people r.t
Kuhlo, where do )ou stand on this
matter? You hac always fuced jour
constituents with n tlear conscience
nnd a steady eyo. You Imve, It is
hoped, long years of honornblo ser
vice yet beforo you to bo capped final
ly by nn honornblo retirement, com
manding the respect of nil people nnd
without a smirch or stigma upon
your name. The men who are using
you In the McCrosson measure will
have no use for you when they have
got what they want, nnd you cannot
nITord and we do not believe joii will
allow yourself for the first time In
your public career to get Involved In
rushing through n measure which, If
successful, cannot be palliated or ex
cused when you again confront tho
people of Hawaii net.
TAFT AND THE WAR TALK.
"An important report to como
before tho Slxty-llrst Congress
will be that of the Secretary of
War, which Is Intended to show
the condition of tho military
forces and defenses of the nation;
the state of readiness, with par
ticular reference to propiredncss
to repel Invasions If attempted on
tho American seaboird; nnd to
tell what additional forces, arm
aments and equipments are nec
essary, If any, to nfTord reason
able guaranty against successful
This paragraph from a Washington
dispatch bearing the date of Decem
ber first shows that the report made
by tho Secretary of War and tho gen
eral campaign for "preparedness" Is
not .i proposition that has been sprung
on the public unexpectedly.
Another very significant paragraph
from tho same correspondent's dis
patch Is the following:
"Not only nro these numerous
bills pending from the Inst ses
sion, but some important now
measures also are to come up Tho
greatest significance that army of
ficers seo In this is tho fact that
tho personnel of tho Incoming
Sixty-second Congress is to be
"When the Sixty-second Con
gress opens, the Sennto and House
naval and military committees
will Include many now members
nnd some new chairmen. As some
of the stanchest friends of tho
military are relegated to civil life
and peace advocates replaco them,
together with the determination
of the Democrats to have an eco
nomical session, tho army nnd
navy can see small hopo for leg
islation to benefit them unless 're
lief comes In the Blxty-flrst ses
sion, about to open.
"Remaining from tho first ses
sion of tho Sixty-first Congress
are C5 bills pertaining to, tho
army C9 to the navy, 13 to tho
marine corps, flvo to tho militia,
three to the military academy and
four to tho naval academy. All
these the tension about to con
vene will be nsked to pass Soma
of the bills have passed the Sen
ato, while others were approved
by tho House In the last session."
This shows that the Administration
realizes If it Is to get what Is needed
for the army and tho navy for tho
next two years, it must secure the
greater portion from tho present Con
gress. It must Indeed have enough tn
carry over and keep tho publics-works
for "defense 'olOK.wcause; the j8xtv"
