for Its Improvement will Improve the

over the Honolulu trip among those

are taking themselves will not bo

not be, by tho men who have the

Wouldn'.t that make you smile, chil

OUR GLORIOUS FOURTH.
Honolulu's Fourth of July for 1911
will be memorable for the spontane
ous enthusiasm that brought the peo
ple together on short notice for an
appropriate celebration, and also for
tho participation In the events by the
representatives of Great Urltalu who
tire guests of the city.
Wo aro a happy people Indeed when
wo have reached that point in our
national history whore we can lay
aside the prejudices of tho past and
recognize tho present day destiny of
the English-speaking brotherhood. Wo
need not hesitate In the slightest to
recall the achievements of the, past,
when tho people of tho Thirteen Col
onies taught Great Urllutn a lesson
In colonial government, that helped
It to Ccconto tiio greatest' of the
world's empires of self-governing col
onies. Our ancestors did a great

There could "not be better makings
of n Glorious Fourth than what we

IT CANJBE DONE.
Honolulu can have free garbago col
lection if the peoplo want It.
" Honolulu can bo a clean city If tho
people really want It so to be. Not
ono single unsutmountablo barrier Is
presented to tho people of this mu
nicipality. The only question In the wholn mat
ter Is whether nil citizens nro willing
to tako the time to study tlu situa
tion, chtrlfy their own Ideas bo that
liielr reprt'sciitathufl may know what
course to take, and then, lifter hav
ing inndo their desires clear, assist

Honolulu has all tho forms and
legal rights for prompt and effective
action, und there Is no. doubt of what
Its people ought to do.
The suggestion of the I) u 1 1 o 1 1 n
that the demands of Improved sanita
tion' could be satisfied with u slight
speclllc tax, meets with general np
probation. The .only probable excep
tion uro tuo peoplo who now strive to
evade tho gurbage clearing rule.
Householders and property owners
now paying the monthly charge for
.garbage collection can havo no ob
jection. Property owners who suffer
heavy losses when tho city is under
thn ban of'n port quarantine, have ev
ery reason to approve tho move. What
they wniit Is clllcieni servlco and n
clean bill of health for the city. The
tax levy necessary would- not be a bur
den on anyone, and tho benefit to bo
derived cannot bo overestimated.
Under tho law of the Inst legisla
ture the Supervisors were given au
thority to levy tuxes us required for
municipal administration. City olll
cluls therefore have n clear course
beforo them, though It may appear Ut
times thnt "they'll be damned If they
do and, damned If they don't" They
must shape their policies according
to the dictates of plain duty to the
community for Its better protection
against dangers from without, and
more nearly perfect sanitation that
