GETTING INTO POLITICS FOR THE BETTERMENT
, OF HONOLULU.
Almost coincident with the rallying
call of tlic President or tin; Chamber
of Commerce, tlmt the people eel to
gether uiul ulso Ret 1b work for tin
purpose of elcctlnuefllclont men to
public olllce, tlierviroiiu from one
portion of the town h vicious attack on
Hawullan-AinerloHiis generally, und
from still another the response that
this get-together jbutihess Is u splen
did thine hut U,;j.niiHt hu carried on
without John Wise.
Fortunately neither of these ex
pressions bespeak the sane sentiment
of the business men who must be de
pended upon to secure results. If
they did, the record of the next few
months In politics would be merely an
exhibition of the fact that fools and
their opportunities are soon parted.
If the so much needed and so much
desired movement to net together for
the Improvement of Honolulu Is to
amount to anything practical, It must
be free from the embittered dlrectlou
of disappointed persons, mid also from
factional squabbles of petty peanut
political players 'who are ordinarily
unable to grasp a large proposition,
eo go off on some foolish tangent.
Getting together certainly does nol
-enrry with It the need for providing
new partisan organizations.
Cooperation does not cull for
wrecking the old and creating a new
organization for political activity.
Success in promoting the generul
' welfare of Honolulu by electing cap
able men to otllce Is not to be secured
by telling men whom you happen to
dislike that they can't play In your
yard, and the city will have to be re
generated without their votes.
San Francisco is held up as a sam
ple of how it can bo done. Certainly
San Francisco's light was not won Iiy

not wanted say, from 1'atrlck Calhoun
and his associates around whom has
been waged the most bitter war thorfdre the -get together movement for

down on the waterfVont and tell those elude the broad-minded workers of all
men that they could not have repre
sentation, but their votes were want
ed. They didn't go to the regular Re
publican workers and say, "Here you

San Francisco business men did nut
play tho fool, as-.i now already pro
posed by at least oite organ, that Ho
nolulu business men should do.
They got every clement Into line.
They placed the big Issue of gov-
eminent efficiency as well as honesty
before the people, and asked all who
believed with them to help.
Every man who sits down and llg-
urea the proposition calmly must
know uiui in souio bucii muiuier no-
nolulit will have to go to work If It Is
to gain success.

the community is asked to spend Its
time In discussing whether John Wise

program then It Is absolutely certain
that In place of u campaign for the
betterment of Honolulu we shall have
a monkey and u parrot row that will
disgust everyone and result In the
victory of the forces the "good citi
zens" started out to defeat.
This talk of there being no neces
sity for partisanship in the municipal
election Is all very well for easy
chair conversations, but It Is silly
buiicunib when we stop to consider the
fact that the municipal election is held
at thu same time as the Congressional
and legislative elections.
Someone wilt suy "That scheme Is
all wrong." Suppose It Is, It is the
fact and It can't be changed before
San Francisco eliminated strict par
