Hoosovett who Isn't afraid to sny that
there are some questions of honor that
can't bo settled In any court that Hu
man Ingenuity eer created.
Yale and Harvard can't work their
'residential pull when it comes to
contests with other universities. In
ports as well nn tho practical af-
fuirs of life, It Is a case of the best
lluslncss men of Honolulu did not
stand In the way of tho Kideral Gov
ernment when It went lifter land on
which to erect forts at Walklkl and
vicinity. The Federal Gocrnmeiit al
ways pays full vulue for what It
takes. What good reason Is there
then for any busluess Interest of this
city striving to block tho Federal
government, when It Is attempting to
present the city of Honolulu Willi a
inllllon-dollur building on n half mil
lion dollar situ?
HOLSTEIN AND CAMPBELL.
Speaker Holsteln, has made.' n seri
ous charge against Superintendent of
Public Works Campbell, If It prove,
that the little weekly published In Mr,
Holstein's home district has quoted
If thn published statement Is con
firmed, there Is no other action to be
taken on the return of Superintendent
Campbell than to lay tho wliolo mat
ter before tho Territorial Grand Jury
and call for n searching Investiga
tion, that will Include not only a
ruNlow of what went on during tho
session of the Legislature but will go
further and establish Dually the exact
relations of tho Superintendent of
Public Works with private corpora
tions of the Territory.
It Is a serious matter for tho Speak
er of tho Houso of Representatives to
make the charge that Is credited to
At first thought tho assumption Is
that ho has been misquoted, or has
used the term graft In the Rcnso of
faorltlsin. If Speaker Holsteln hail
knowledge of Irregularities In connec
tion with tho Public Works olllco ad
ministration It was his duty as a pub
lic servant to plucn his Information
heforo 'tho Superintendent's superior.
This fie may or may not have done.

of what he knows In connection with
tho Mahukona wharf construction,

One definite factor Is coming more

SANITATION AND PRACTICAL
Coopcrutlon of tho nchooTehlldreii
In sanitation niattorH was urged .In
tho discussion befoio tho Woman's
Uranch of tbo VRivers and Harbors
Congress meeting held last Friday.
This suggests n query:
Why should not tho boys of Hono
lulu who aro seeking gainful employ
ment be brought Into the sanitation
service through the practical appli
cation of public school education?
We hear much of manual and In
dustrial training. This means noth
ing moro or lean than bringing school
knowledge directly to bear on tho
dully problem of making a living.
Why not apply tho manual or prac
tical training Idea to thu public school
hoys and tho need' for elllcient sani
tation workers and Inspectors?
Why nut put the training, and the
organization of tho County gourn
iiient system In some of thu schools lo
the practical test of furnishing thu
actual sanitation campaign leaders
mid winkers with elllcliint Jiilllig men?

The decision In tho Standard Oil caso
ombt tho tremendous struggle on tho
part of thu government to put down,
by authority of law, a combination
which It declared was n menace to tho
Industrial nnd economic 'advancement
of the entire country.
At the snino time, tho court Inter
prctcil tho Sbermnn ailtl-trust low sd
us to limit Its nppllcntlon to nets of
"undue" restraint of trade, nnd not
"eery" restraint of trade. It was on
thlh point that tho only discordant note
was heard In tho court. Justice Har
lan dissented, declaring that cases nl
rendy decided by tho court had deter
mined oneo for all that tbo word
"unduo" or "unreasonable," or similar
words, were not In tbo statute.
Rule of Reason Upheld.
The opinion of tho court wns con
struid to menu Hint the' tobacco case,
like every other caso In which re
straints of trado aro nlleged, must bo
subject to the new tort e,f reasonable
ness nf tbo reitralnt, ns laid down In
the Htnml.tril Oil decision.
Hy far the greater portion of tho
opinion of tho chief Justice was do
voted to tho Justification of the court
in requiring that tho "rulo of reason"
he applied to restraints of trndo be
fore they weru held lo be violations of
the Sherman anti-trust law. The court
found this justlllcatlhn In tho common
law of the forefnthers nnd In the gen
eral Inw of tbo country nt tho time tho
.Sherman anti-trust law wns passed.
In short, tho court held that tho tech
nlial'wordsof the siatuto wero to bo
given the meaning which those words
had In the common law nnd In tho Inw
of the country at tho time of the enact
ment. This meaning of tho wordi, ac
cording to the court, called for tho
exercise of reason In determining what
restraints on trndo vvoro prohibited.
Balm for Corporations.
The decreo pf the lower court wns
modllled so that there need not bo "an

On this point the court hi Id that tho

Supremo Court was erroneous
Last Saturday night n largo audi
ence witnessed tho excellent production
of "Cnptnln Lettnrblalr," by Marguerite
Merlngton, nt Charles 11. lllshop Hull,
Oalut College. Through tho courtesy
of Daniel Krohmnn, the dramatic cluh
of the college was able to present the
play without paying tho usual royalty,
Tho scenes nro laid In Hnglnnd of
the present time. Allnn Itenton. who

Haddon. Ho wns especially good In tbo
last net, where, after helping his rival
to cscnpo tho law, ho rends tho noto
Fanny hhs r-ent him bidding him como
back. Cordelia Oilman showed her
great ability In imrcr?onatlng Fanny
Haddon. She was exceptionally good
In the sympathetic scenes and nlso
when taken by surprise at Lettarblalr's
Miss Oilman certainly showed herself
cnpnblo of noting n trifling part with
Uie utmost ease and grace. Although
taking tbo unsympathetic part nf tho
villain, Tercy Nottago did very good
acting throughout tho piece. Ho sus
tained bis scornful character through
out both In manners and voice most
ably, James fllhb made nn excellent
dean who brought many a laugh from
the audience. Ho wns the typical old
fashioned, narrow-minded clergyman
who longed to get off the narrow path
many n time.
Alexander Anderson was tho kind
henrted, sympathetic lawyer, Fanny's
guardian. Tho part was perfectly suit
ed to him.
Hnrel Ituckland, ns Polly, won her
way Into tho hearts of' nil tjie nndlenco
by happy ways and kind, but tensing,
disposition. Her lover, Fmckncy, tho
Dearie's seeretnry, wns excellently bus
tnlncd hy Alfred Young. Ho kept tho
nudlenco In continued laughter In tho
scene after tho banquet, nnd deserves
much credit for his good acting.
Onrnlo Tlosecrans, ns the maiden
aunt, could hardly bo equaled. Though
easily shocked nnd very sentimental,
she wns still fi dear old lady.
SmltherF.. Hdwln Olhli, was tho per
sistent bill-collector and tho nightmare
nf lettarblalr's life. .Tho part 'hf tbo
old servant of Lettarblnlr was very
well taken by Randolph Hitchcock, who
always thoncht hfs master to bo "Jos'
like Ills father."
Taken nil In nil, It Is one of the
best productions yet given nt runabou.
Thn cast was most carefully selected,
the scenery wn excellent, especially tho
last sceno In tho garden.
Special credit should bo given to
Miss Allda Itronks, the dramatic roach
of the colleue, and Mr. Kltts, who bad

hy rumors that Its previous price, of

deliberate drlvo umoro? Interested Hint
wanted to boom the stock. Ac
cordingly, after these reports wero
spread around, a number of Investors
rushed to sell out.
This morning the stock wns down

more Helling still to bo (lone, but thn
more conservative holders refused to
