He who will not answer to the rudder, must answer to the
THE FEDERW BUILDING.
The Manuka site and progress win!
That is the clear interpretation to be placed upon the
B u 1 1 c t i n's special dispatch from Washington today, giv
ing Honolulu the news that condemnation proceedings have
been ordered on the addition to the Manuka site. It means
speedy action on Honolulu's new Federal building ,and ac
tual building should commence as soon as the legal proced
ure is finished.
It is an emphatic and thorough victory for the sane, in
telligent citizens of a progressive city. Let us hope that the
policy of delay and blocking on the part ot the opposition
will not continue. Honolulu needs the building.
While the cable dispatch is brief, it is evident that the op
ponents of the Manuka site, after their own proposals have
been given a hearing, are denied their wishes, and that Con
gress and the Department of Justice arc determined to push
ahead and build the structure without further delay.

THAT AUTO AFFAIR.
Mistakes that wcro mudo by thoso
In thn autoinobllo that killed Tony
Xandy on. New Yenr's iiliclil nro quite
apparent to tho public mid especially
to the men In tho patty.
To p. ibs JudRinen't on the iiffuli' un
til all the tacts aro piesentcd liefnro
tho coroner's Jury under oath would
place rno III danger of doing a gravs
Tho purported statement of the
chaiilTcur Is that the I'orto Hlcau wai
struck a blow by an occupant of Ibo
car. Mr Murray states that ho at
tempted to save the man from the
blow which seemed inevitable from
tlio render of tho automobile.
It Is Improbable that any man
could reach out from an automobile
and strike n blow or sulllclent force to
fractal c another's skull without show
ing some sevcio marks ot the en
counter on his own person.
Tho putt of tho whole affair mous
ing tho greatest public Indignation Is
tho going off and leaving tho victim
after It was seen that ho had fallen
to the gintiml It Is understood indeed
that at tho time ot the accident Super
visor Murray bad In his pocket u copy
or an amendment to tho autoinobllo
law providing for tho punishment of
Just such an act.
After healing vcibIoiis of tlio affair
that aro at best Incomplete, the II u 1
lotln piercrs to withhold Its Judg
ment until the statements ot all con
cerned can bo hoard
On the face or the Hist information
a man was struck and those respons
ible ran away until brought to ac
count by tho police. It now appears
that aid wnB sent to tlio victim, but
It caino ton late.
Tho Investigation should bo thor
ough and tho responsibility should bo
placed where it belongs after tho tes
timony or all Is In.
BIG BUSINESS NOT WORRIED,
According to the financial writer
for tho Now York World, tho manag
eis or Ilig lluslness Instead of being
disturbed by tho rccont unit-trust
prosecutions and attempt to "un
scrauibln" the linancial eggs, nro
rather pleased with tho outcome
This writer Incidentally takes a
very optimistic view of tho general
iteuit wen, no mm. tho nuerin h
got It now,
condition ot the country, and refuses
to believe that tho prognostications of
distress In u l'l cslilcntl.il campaign
jc.ir will prove correct.
As n ninttcr ot ract," sn)s thlt
writer, "there nro a great number of
men In tho llniincial district who be-
llevo that u lnrgo part of the country
has nil along been suffering from an
attack ot nerves and that the Ills
Hint havo paraded hefoie Its distorted
vlilon hnvo been puiely Imaginary."
This snmo writer's Idea lit that trust
busting up to ibito bus been anything
but u success from tho standpoint of
an) body but tho gentlemen In charge
or the political arsennls or tho great
parties mid their various subdivisions.
It HIr lluslness Is disturbed over tho
disintegration ot tho two most con
spicuous offenders It hctrns a lack
of astuteness that is nothing short of
amazing. The tentacles or these dis
membered octopl nro still very much
alive, and they will continue to show
an alllnlty tor tho torso that will be
little short of actual coheslvcness. In
prnctlco these fractions will bo mere
A central power will control the
policy of all, because the majority con
trol has not been destroyed by the
decrees of the courts, and cannot bo
without confiscation, which these trib
unals havo declared they will not per
mit indeed, their separation into
many units will serve met ply to fa
cilitate Illegal practices ot theso cor
porations, It they nro to bo persisted
tf tho old Standnid Oil Company,
for Instance, raised tho prko or pe
troleum products the vvholo country

sponsibility was placed at onco upon
the central board of directors If,
however, tho South Pennsylvania Oil
Company hereafter advances tho prlco
In Pennsylvania, and the Continental
Oil Company, and n dozen others or
these units follow suit In their ro
spcctlvo territories, such nn action Is
much less likely to escape general ut
tenttnn, and tho responsibility will bo
much moro dlfllciilt to ccntrnlle Un
doubtedly every device will bo resort
ed to to conceal evidences ot collu

Standard Oil Interests with tho plan
they havo devised that predictions nro

thirty-four companies will ho even

original tomblnntlon. .
As to tho dismemberment ot tho to

WASHINGTON, I. C Dec 22. Tho
decision by the United Btates Hupremo
Court of tho famous suit brought hero
from Hawaii was as novel as tho liti
gation Itself Tho enso Involved the
old monarchical regime, n. nuncupative
will nml other elements of romance.
The title wni sufllclcntly coinmonpbicc,
being that of Lowers & Cooke, Ltd,
ngnlntt Mary II. Atchcrley.
Ju'tk'o Holmes read tho opinion of
the court, sustaining tho lower tri
bunal nnd In favor of Mrs. Atchcrley.
In doing so bo displaced a. full knowl
edge ot Hawaiian history. Ho went
further, and pronounced tho most puz
7llng nml Involved native nam oh with
nil the fluency of a born Islander Tho
rnso and graco with which tho Justice
performed this feat was tho striking
feature of tho decllon. In fact, nd
iniriition was carried to such a point
that ninny among the bar nnd In tho
uiidleucu gently applauded Justice
Holmes, thereby violating u drnstlc
rulo of tha Supreme Court.
There were- also many Millies when
Justice Holmes, In summing up the
conclusions of tho court, said:
"It would b going rntber far to np
