Mr, Wu Ting King's appeal,
through Itev. F. M. Damon, Is tin Im
pressive reminder of how close the
people of these islands tire to tho
heart of tlio progressive rulers of the
Chinese revolution and ltepublle. We
of Hawaii know the Chinese so well
that all are assured that tho assistance
'given is not only sorely needed, but
there are no peoplo on the faro of tlio
earth who are more deeply grateful to
friends In time of need. Tlio cause is
one that should commend itself to ev

occasion the half truths on which hu
bases some of his conclusions.

JANUARY 4, 1912
a man, who would leave another lying
In the road after being struck by an
automobile, Is lit to act as a public of
llcer representing the people.
The community au a whole Is ready
to leave the measure of Mr. Murray's
legal responsibility to the courts anil
the cool heads of the Jury. Hut It
does not forget that his party In an
automobile did not stop Immediately
to learn whether the man encountered
had been seriously Injured or not. Ac
cidents will happen. Hut tho failure
to go speedily to tho. assistance of a
person possibly In distress, won't go
That's n point which .Mr. Murray
recognizes mill most Blnccrely regrets,
lie knows how the people feel. Hu
knows that he Is deserving of censure,
Ilo ought to know that It would be Im
possible for him to go through a po
litical campaign mid successfully de
fend himself on such an issue. Con
sequently he has tti consider others
Mr. Murray has most seriously Im
paired his usefulness us a member of
tho Hoatd of Supervisors. While he
liiny feel that some tif tho attacks
made on him are unfair and unjustl
lied, ho Is In duty bound to consider
tlm people whom he represents ami
who have hitherto supported him.

Murray should tender Ills resignation,

Hawaii could not do better than raiso

will duplluato tho sum raised by the
Chinese residents of the Territory.
Hawaii knows Dr. Sun. It has au ac
quaintance with Mr. Wu nnd should
remember that the word of 'u Ting
Fung was good when In Washington
lie gave assurance that tho people of
tho legations, during tho Duxes uprls
Ing at Peking, were safe. In tho hands
of Dr. Sun and Mr. Wit nnd their as
sociates we may rest assured that tlio
assistance Hawaii gives will ho not
only appreciated but used to tho best
Ho makes tho broad declaration that
tho Planters' Association is opposed
to public school education, mid used
Its efforts In the last Legislature to
prevent Increased taxation for the
support of the public schools.
If ho were to stnto tho plain facts,
fncts with which ho wns certainly ac
itialnted through his stay hero during
a session of the Legislature mid Ills
Intimacy with members of tlio Legis
lature, ho would say that opposition
to tho education of tho children of
lowly birth Is not confined to the
pluntors by tiny moans. Ho undoubt
edly ran across some planters who In
their after-dinner talks questioned tho
ndvlsabillty of "overeducatlng" tho
children, mid theso mon were nt thn
"?L'vn,""f"1,1T",,ll," "?"' U
wus on a train that wo first met.
Mr, Knagg-Yes, but It's too lato
now to sue tlio company for damages.
"How does this noted healer, who
cures his patients by touching them

snuKVtlhle EMitdlng money to give the
children of their employes good
Mr, linker was hero when members
of the Planters' Association went be
fore the Legislature nnd spoke In sup
port of the School Fund bill. Ho was
also here when some of the satua men
went before the Legislature to light
the Administration tax bill which they
believed would result In Increased tax
ation. Ho bunches tho whole tux Is
sue as opposition to schools when
such was nut tho case, Tho opposi
tion to the tax bill was bused on the
fear of throwing the door wldo npoil
for mi unlimited tax rate, not for
schools alone, but for nit purposes.
The School Fund Commission hoped
originally to have n bill before tho
Legislature rnrrylng a specific tax for
schools, The opposition to this came
from the administration, mid wus
based on the opinion of the Governor
mid his associates as to the best sys
tem of levying tnxes. A "continuing
appropriation" wiib nt that time sort
of an administration hobby. So tho
administration plan was followed,
Finally, .Mr. Hak'cr pays a glowing
tribute to the splendid work Mr.
Frank Damon Is doing at the Mills In-
iitltttte. He must know that the pres
ent Mills Institute would bo Im
possible without tho money that was
poured forth without stint by n man
very prominent in the sugar world of
tho Islands. Sugar Is at tho bottom
of that educational enterprise. Sugar
Is at the bottom of the Palatini work
nnd Sugar pays tho bills of Dr. Scttd-
der, whoso work Mr. linker praises.
And ott take the protection from
sugar, us Mr. linker seems to think
would be tho proper thing, and all this
leaven would stop working. The ed
ucational activities would be "brought
up standing" and Intelligent agricul
turalists In tho place of peasants
would ho mi Impossibility because of
tack of funds to support the educators
working out new ideals.
Of course the tendency of nil Dig
Httslness Is to become arbitrary mid
arrogant. That Is the experience of
the mainland. It has been history the
Tho American Magazine articles
scoitia tu have been shaped with the
Idea of showing all the arrogance that
can bo found In lllg lluslness hero In
tlio Islands and giving business lead
ers little or no credit for the good
they are doing. Tho I'lnnters' Asso
ciation for Instance Is held respons
ible for conclusions and opinions that
may be held by some members of that
association but which aru vigorously
opposed by other members of the
same association. In other words
there nre subjects on which members
oven of tho Planters' Association
ggroo to disagree.
This is a principal point Hint Mr.
linker has forgotten.
Ills Until conclusion ho unfortunate
ly hides nt the end of his nrtlclo when
lie says that tho leaven of Democracy
In working In tho Islands, mid declares
by Inference that It will make good.
That's whore most till of us ncrco
with Mr. linker, nnd wo only i egret
that such it tone has not been carried
through all his articles, Instead of be
ing left to the last paragraph of tho

Tinier this section, Coke iirRiied be
fore Judge Monsarrat that the law
was Inxalld and discriminating In that
It allows certain people to llsh fromany
of the waters within thu Territory, mid
simultaneously prohibits others from
doing so. Quoting the latter part of
section 1, Coke said the owners or les
sees of enclosed llsh ponds, privately
owned, are not prohibited from llshlng
for or taking iimaama from any of
the wnters within tho Territory, as It
failed to distinctly stnte that they are
only allowed to llsh from tin Ir own
llsh ponds, und tint from any nthei wa
lers within the Territory which they
do not own.
The point, according to those who
listened to the argument, wns well
taken. Judge Monsarrat took tliemat
