BOY SCOUTS ANDJANITATION CORPS.
Bringing the Boy. Scouts into line for practical service in
the mosquito campaign, which is another name for the cam
paign for greater and heajthier Honolulu, is a splendid prac
tical application of the Boy Scout movement.
No better scheme for making an education worth while
could be figured out for the vacation season ,and if this work
is kept up the people of Honolulu will find that the city can
secure from the ranks of its public school boys one of the
most efficient corps of sanitary inspectors that can be found
anywhere in the world.
Naturally this work will not appeal to the boys who don't
have to work. Those who "don't want to work" will of
course drop out until they fall into the hands of the juvenile
court officer or the Big Brothers of the church and are made
to work. A crowd will start out, under the inspiration of the
first enthusiasm. After that has worn off the natural selec
tion of efficiency- and industry will sift the good workers from
the "no accounts," and from this nucleus the first class men
will be developed.
Boys who have attended the public schools have a good
-preliminary education to start with. They know the fife his
tory of the mosquito, where and how it breeds, and, theoret
ically, how it may best be combatted. As members of the
Boy Scouts they are trained in organization and discipline.
As boys born and reared in Honolulu they know its people
and should understand how best to deal with the various ele
ments. What better basis could be asked from which to
secure efficiency. What better system of education could
be devised to develop first class officers and give the grow
ing boys something useful to do.
If the boys should think that a mosquito sanitary officer
"isn't much" let them remember that in the growth and de
velopment of the city of Honolulu, nothing can prevent the
sanitary officer and the sanitary inspector becoming the
most important officers in the city or Territorial service.
These positions will be well paid when filled by efficient men.
Our own boys can have the places if they equip themselves.
If they don't do this, the work will be done by United States
soldiers brought here from the States and our Honolulu
boys will have to look for work on the roads or along the
Our boys have had the educajion; the training is offered;
the opportunity is at hand. It is up to the boys of Honolulu
to make good.
THE ARMY POST.
Not one word of protest, so far as
the 13 u 1 1 e 1 1 n Is aware, will como
from the civilian population of Hono
lulu If Congress will authorize the
War Department to locato Its prin
cipal army post within the city limits,
and more particularly In tliu vicinity
of Fort Armstrong as recommended
by the commander of the Department
May It be possible for the same to
be said In behalf of officers of the
War Department In their representa
tions to the members of CongrfsB.
The establishment and erection of
buildings of the permanent army post
for this Uland cannot bo completed
too soon to suit Honolulu.
TEACHERS AND PUBLICITY,
During the reapportionment of the
teachers In the public schools of
Lynn, Mass., the charges and coun
ter charges were so emphatic and
broad that an Imeutlgatlon was held
by the Hoard of 1'ubllc Instruction.
.During tho discussion there- were
some very pointed questions naked tin
teachers, uinV one of the Hoard sug
gested that it might bo well not to
strain (lie publicity fenlure too fur
This wus too niucli fur Mayor Con

them, I believe they ought to be en
couraged to tell us Just what they
"We are not running a private .en
terprise. "The business of the school depart
ment is public business, or at least It
should be, and 1 have always been of
the opinion that while publicity may
hurt some times, as a general thing
It accomplishes a great deal of good.
"Criticism moves the world, and the
public servant who cannot hold up
his head under It, runs the risk of
losing the confidence of the people."
CONDEMNING WAIKIKI WATER.
"And I for ono," concluded
Chairman Carter, at the end of
the day, "don't want to bathe at
Walklkl and what's more, I'm not
going to." Advertiser news Item.
This statement, If tho ex-Governor
be correctly quoted, Is worth at least
fifty thousand dollars a yeur to any
tourist resort In competition with Ho
nolulu, und proportionately damaging
No ono will refuse Chulrmun Curler
or anyone else the loyal American
privilege of bathing In Nuiiumi
water liisltuil of Walklkl, but there
Iiiih yet to uppeur a good und sufficient
reason why Walklkl, (hu chief tourist

PEACE "TREATIES OPEN
Technical details alone, so the
Washington-dispatches to the II u 1 1 e-
tin' state, stundUrrthe ;way of im
mediate negotlatiirar'wlth 'Japan for
en arbitration treaty.
This seems a very small Item but
the diplomats in Washington, guided
by their experience with the Anglo
American arbitration treaty now In
process of construction, understand
that thore Is a long road ahead.
The .wild enthusiasm with which
President Tntt's proposal of an arbi
tration treaty with Great Britain was
received, has forced the President to
make another speech In which he
warns the people not to expect too
much too soon.
Speaking before the Baltimore
Peace Conference held recently, the
President Bald: "I think we are like
ly to make more progress If we ex
press our hopes with moderation and
realize the difficulties that ought .to
be overcome, than If we proclaim that
"we have opened Die gate to eternal
peace with one key and within one
year. I am not going to dwell on the
question of the arbitration treaty
a well-built mod- . '
curllnu In College i
which Is In the process of negotiation.
Tho truth Is, 1 would much rather
stand upon the platform and refer to
such a step as taken, to such a treaty
ns made and acquiesced In, than to
discuss It during Us negotiation."
Washington correspondents state
with certain nssurnnce that both Sec
retary Knox und Ambassador Dryce
have been apprehensive that the eager
und highly raised expectations of the
body Of the people of the two coun
tries might not be met when Ilia
treaty was finally, drafted and submit
ted to the ratifying powers of the two
countries. The two chief negotiators
ofJlho Instrument which the two nn
tlong have set their hopes upon have
no hope In President Tnft's phrase
that they will be able "to open the
gate to eternal peace with ono key,
und within one year." They do not
wish' the British and the American
public to entertain that hope and then
In tho discussion and settlement of
most diplomatic questions, and In the
writing of most treaties, there Is an
established body of formula, prece
dents, and tradition for tho guidance
of the negotiators. What Is needed
can be selected from this body of law
and custom. In the present Instance
this storehouse Is not nvallable to tho
negotiators. The makers of the pres
ent, treaty aro breaking new ground.
They must establish new formulas,
and It Is possible that the new treaty
will not go very much beyond the
erection of a formula, rather than be,
as seems to be expected, a definite
contract providing in specific terms
for the arbitration of definitely named
differences that may arise.
Uoth parties to the negotiations feel
that a long step forward will have
been mado If a slmplo working form
ula Is evolved to guide futuro proced
ure In the relations between the two
Powers, leaving to future settlement
the preclno and definite action to be
taken In each caso that may arise
calling for the settlement of points of
difference. Tho main thing desired
and to be achieved will bo the formal
declaration of each country that what
ever questions might arise would go
first to n tribunal for arbitral adjust
ment before any other method of set
tlement was nought.
A slow day passed on the stock mar'
kct today, with little of Interest In tho
movement of sugar securities, as most
of them did not move. Walalua went
up half a point, two blocks of five
shares each selling at 113. CO, the last
reported sale oil the Honolulu ex
change being at 113. McBryde fell off
half a point, nnd was sold at 6.50 to
day, the last sale, several days ago,
being at 7. The slight slump Is not
sudden, us tho bidding has been n little
weak for somo time. .

Inquiry from Judge Cooper as to what
Ltghtfoot considered was the Oijvern

The one real point In I.lghtfoot's nt

contention that the Territory is with

Llghtfoot took tho plunge that resulted
In his arrest,

Mllvcrton, who appears for the pros
ecution In the case, declared that he
wok prepared to put on expert evidence
to hov the reasonableness of. the reg
ulation prohibiting harbor swimming.
The first witness to be called wus Sur
veyor Wall, who brought two register
ed maps with lilm. These were ob
jected to by Llghtfoot, who claimed
thattn registered map wnsj not. con
