' U. S. secret service men nro al
ways at wotk In Honolulu nml most
every other part of tho country. It
Is when their task is completed that
their presence Is generally known, ex
cept when tho oxtromo secrecy of
those with whom they have been op
erating arouses public curiosity.
Honolulu Klks did right to hold to
tlm dalo of their Carnival. It's the
olhcr people who should not attempt
to crowd their events upon what tho
public has come to expect as the reg
ular thing for Floral Parade week.
And with Wall starting his manage
ment of thn Floral Parade it yenr
ahead of time, there will be a ripping
celebration for 1UI2.
Millions of dollars must bu spent
In placing Honolulu In a proper san
itary condition. The only question
Is, whether the people will appreciate
the facts of the situation nml do tho
work themselves, or illlly-dally until
the Federal Government lias to step
in, do the work and charge it up to
tho property holders. It will not lako
three days to put a bill through Con
gress giving sanitation experts nil tho
authority they need to deal with prop
erty tlmt Is n public menace So It
will bo n paying Investment from ev
ery standpoint for tho jieopto of tho
town to do their own cleaning (up
and do It now.
Though It was dimmed somewhat by
the wide Interest In the Stnndard Oil
decision, tho decision of th. United
States Supreme Court In tho contempt
case Involving tho labor lenders,
Samuel Oompers nnd John Mitchell,
was hardly less important.
Tho case has been so long In tho
courts that a great many havo for
gotten "what It was all about," ex

j. It wns further charged that In the
succeeding number of tho Fedcfattonlst
Oompers, Mitchell nnd Morrison Join.;
cd In an nppenl to organized labor for
funds to carry tlio injunction case to
the higher court. It wns contended
that this appeal was .used ns a vehicle
to cnntlnuo tho boycott. Tho charges
slnted that tho appeal referred to an
editorial In tho same number of tho

of those making tlio nppenl, This edi
torial was attributed to Mr. Oompers,
"Individuals ns members of orgnn
Ired labor," this publication said, "will
still exercise tho right to buy or not to
buy the Duck's Stove nnd Hnnges. ,lt
Is an exemplification of the saying
that 'you can lend a horso to water,
upt you can't mako him drink.'"
Another charge was tlmt In tho
Mnrch Fcderatlonlst, Mr. Oompers
published nn editorial, In which It was
said: "It should be borno In mind
that thcro Is no law, nyc, not even it
court decision, compelling union men
or their friends of labor to buy n
duck's stove or range No, not ovon
to buy n Lcowo lint"
In a public nddrcss In Now York In
April, 1908, Mr. Oompers said, It was

If 1 toll you Hint tho Duck's Stove and
Itango Compnny was still ' unfair,
when I get back to Washington to

pared to tell you that theso things
nro unfair. Hut there Is no law, no

buy them nor does any law compel.

beforo tho Sup.einc Court Prominent
among theio win .Imlge Alton 11,
Parkor, former pi evidential Candldnto,
who bad been retained to defend tho

was that tlio Injunction wns an Im
proper Interference with the constitu

in parts nnd thnt his client should
