One of the very best motes that

of a call tor volunteers that would

ON TRADITIONAL AMERICAN
The Senate scored a point today
for the development of Hawaii along
traditional' American lines.
One step has been made toward wip
ing out Iho present record that Hit
wall Is the only Territory ever
brought under the Flag without pub
lic land areas set apart und dedicat
ed forever to tho cause of education.
It Is to be hoped that the House of
Representatives will follow up the
good work'. There is not tho slight
est dodbt that Congress will approve
the meusuro. - ' i " K .
Tha state of Texas points with
pride to tho fact that it has under
lease public lands valued at more
than $10,000,000, the income from
which Is devoted to public education.
The State of Minnesota points with
pride to the fact that through the
lease of Its lands, that were by act
of the United States Congress set
aside for tho endowment of the State
University corresponding to our Col
lego of Hawaii It has ono of the
largest endowment funds enjoyed by
any educational institution in the
country. These- were public lands
given for the benefit of education.
Does anyono Bupposo that If the
Congress had the allotment of lands
for Texas and Minnesota to do over
again it would not give the best lands,
lands that are or could be leased to
tho best advantage.
Americans of the mainland have al
ways) picked the best when providing
fund's for education. I ,
Since Congresrforgot to'glvo lands
for education inVlIawall, It is to the
"everlasting credit of our people If
thy remind the National legislators
of their mistake, and request hat the
Territory of Hawaii shall be put . in
line with every other Territory that
has been organized. '

resolution. The public hinds and the
water leases should be dedicated for
ever to the purposes of education and
That Is tho way Congress will ik'bb
tho final amendment. Congress tal:e3
no hnlfwuy steps when It comes to
giving public lands for the greatest
of America's Institutions lu public
schools and Its colleges of agrlcultuic
and 'mechanic arts.
NEW CITY HEALTH OFFICERS
With two former members of tho
Territorial Board of Health nt the
head, tho health department of the
City and County of Honolulu ought to
he run In a manner to get the quick
est, beta and most permanent results.
Tho only value of wliut hat) gone
before la to furnish a letson to not
let It happen again. The City and
County administration has lost a
gieat amount of public commence as
well us authority The only wny to
regain this confidence Is to tlo the
work that must be done fo.r tho bet
ter sanitation of Honolulu und main
taining permanent conditions of pub
lic health that wfll keep the port free
from quarantine. This ullows of no
quibbling over whose Is the author

As for politico, the men who hate
to bear the brunt of the campaigns
Bhould be asked to recommend cin
clent men to fill positions that are
vacant, and the politics of a man
Bhould never operate ' to guarantee
him a position for five minutes It ho
does not show by his work that ho la
up to the task to ho performed. Ills
activity us n political workor should
not however mllltato against him.
The reason for "politics" having a
black eye Is that favoritism may havo
kept an Inefficient man In omce nnd
kept nn efficient man out.
The kind of politics that Honolulu
wants Is tho brand that Is over on the
alert to llnd the right man for tho
places that nro'opeu.
The Dulletln.belleves that pol
itics of that character Is" entirely
practical and will give the best re
sults In government here as else
where. , U th,e men who bayo been named by
the Supervisors to handle the health
department can't do It on the basis
that efficient service is good politics
wo shall bo very much surprised.
