Politics has been well described as

just as plcnsuro or anything elso that
draws attention nwny from tho avoca
tions of llfo. Looking over tho re
turns of elections, tho conclusion must
bo that tliore Is not enough politics in
tho public mind. If thero wns more
of tho kind of politics described nboie
In tho minds of citizens, principally
of tho wealthy class nnd men of leis
ure, us well as thoso who nro en
grossed In hmJnoss, there would bo
less of tlio political trickery that is
Justly complained of.
When out of 20,000 registered vot
ers 4000 stay nt home, not caring
enough about voting to tjiko tho trou
ble to go to tho polls, what elso can
wo oxpect than that politics shall oc
casionally go nstrny and mon get Into
olllco who enro moro for themselves
than they do for the public? Tho man
who will not take tho pains to cast a
ballot Is not ono whit better than
thoso Just described, for ho cares nioro
for himself than for tho public good.
Tho only hope for better things Is
Hint tho men who nro willing to bear
their share of tho public burdens for
tho public good mny reallzothelr re
sponsibility and perBiiado othors to
do the samo. No wonder that they
sometimes becomo discouraged.
Educational value of n crlils during
n legislative session was apparent In
tho cholera visitation of February.
It Id also apparent in what was not
dono to provide monoy to guard tho
Territory ngnlnst pests and fight
what nro now In tho islands.
As noted In these columns n day or
two ago, tlio legislative committee
Lhiivlng In charge tho first apportion
ment of funds under tho conservation
tnx, Included In their cstlnmto $ IT. ,000
nvnllablo for tho oxperts of the Terri
tory to light pests.
Then the Items were passed upon by
tho Conscnallon Fund Apportionment
Hoard, made up of Messrs. Campbell,
Cooko and Wilcox, who with their ex
pert knowlcdgo of tho situation arc
now cicdllcd with having wiped out
tho $iri,000 Item. Tlio Mediterranean
fly and other pests wcro within tho
Islands nt that tlmo. Hut Snn Fran
cisco having declared no quarantlno
ngnlnst Hawaii's fruits, tho pest did
not apparently forco Itself upon tho
attention of llicso llnanclal experts,.
Had tho California quarantlno been
enforced while tho Legislature wns In
hcsslon, thoro would hnvo been no
necessity for further argument to
inako the post fighting fund $30,000
Instead of $15,000.
So It appears from this that It Isn't

Is entitled to all the cussing, for hav
