SIZING UP THE ELECTORAL VOTE
FOR NEXT YEAR.
'Without tho electornl oto of New
York nothing less than n tidal vvavo
will save the Democratic party from
deft at nuxl year."
This Is tho deliberate conclusion of
tho New York World, tho lcudlng
Democratic newspaper of tho coun
try. The world Is not an organ so it
speaks tho truth fearlessly. It de
clares that the Stato of Now York
under Uuvcrnor Dlx Is as certainly In
tho hands of Tammany Hall as If the
people bad given direct orders for
lloss Murphy to lake control at tho
statehouse The country will not bo
bossed by Tammany Hall.
Consequently among the Democrats
who look the facts In the face, there
Is nothing so remarkably pleasing
about the prospects us many of our
local Democratic heelers would like to
havo It appear.
Previous to reaching the editorial
conclusion quoted tho World makes n
very thorough and very Interesting
canvass of tho political situation and
of the change In tho electoral votes.
It may not have occurred to some
of the vvlso ones In Hawaii that with
the reapportionment of tho members
of Congress, the membership of the
electoral college Is also ihnnged. This
chungc, according to another author
ity gives the Republican States an In
crease of thlrty-flvo while the nor
mally Democratic States gain only
thirteen. This advantage Is sufficient
to win an election on a close vote.
Hut wo will glvo Hulletln read
ers the figures as presented by tuo
Democratic World'and let them draw
their own conclusions as to tho cer
tainty of the results next )enr. fig
ures will he very much to tho furo In
the next twelve months and we sug
gest that Hulletln readers pre
serve the record of electoral voles
Ihto given for future refcrenco:

Mexico arc admitted Into the Union

Of course Honolulu should have a
first class carriage and unto road to
the naval station ut Pearl Harbor.
What small potatoes to have the
greatest naV.il station of the country
growing, up next door, and nor a dec

and stay with Honolulu.
Judging -from the cull for tenders,
the Oahu Loan Fund Commission has
its business In shape for active work
by the contractors more promptly than
any offlcluf that has been wasting his
time criticising tho commissioners.
While the talkers have been talking,
the workers of tho Commission have
been working. And they get results.

"THE IDEAL SCHOOL BOARD"
.There Is no room on any school
bo nd for a crank, a hobby ilder or an
eMremlst of any sort, said I.. N Hines,
speaking before the national assembly
of teachers. There needs to bo an
evenly balanced, sane administration
of schools everywhere.
There Is not a single school virtue
but'thnt can be made objectionable In
the hands of a cranky board member.
Medical Inspection, cleanliness, tho
teaching of patriotism, each and ev
ery virtue nnd rulo of conduct cun

diculous and fulrly loathsome lo the
pupils and teachers alike If lop-sldcd

lierpetuul exclusion of the rest
What wo need Is an all-around ad
ministration of the schools, that takes
duo care of ever) thing that is line
and worth while. Almost every com
munity has some citizen that would
like to get on the school boaid so
that he coutd revolutionize things, une
man would run to seed on bundworK,
another would teach nothing but the
three H's, anothor would emphnslzo

is only a little over ten years ago since the.
pioneer settler on the land of Pini)tieo

none of the many conveniences required by
the exacting suburbanite. Now all the ad

procurable: Mountain spring water, tele
