It is high time for the voters of this city to begin to look
about and decide what they hope to do politically this year.
Too many decide too frequently to do nothing, and then
there is trouble.
Regardless of what effect the appointment of the Govern
or may have on the situation most everyone is agreed that
the present situation is not a good one.
One of two courses is open for the voters. We might say
three but we can hardly believe that anyone will intentionally

First, the voters can begin work early, strengthen the
party machinery by getting sterling and reliable men into the
conventions and on the tickets.
Second, they can by proclaiming disgust with the results
ol their own mistakes in strict partizanship, break off on
"good man" tangents. That means three parties in the field
during the campaign and the election of incompetents to
The latter course is that usually taken by men who are
either too lazy or indifferent to study exact conditions, and
find it more comfortable to fallow easy chair, parlor ideas
that sound pretty in theory.
Let it be remembered that we have two Territorial con
ventions this year two for each party both of which are
fraught with great possibilities for Hawaii. There is every
prospect that the delegates from Hawaii in the Republican
and the Democratic conventions may have a deciding voice.
This is not a year of walk-overs in national politics.
The conventions for local nominations arc of no less im
portance. "We want good men" is the first remark heard in con
nection with all the conventions. Let it be remembered that
we shall not lack for good men if all citizens start in early on
politics and do not let their prejudices get the best of their
Details of management will also have a bearing on our
ability to secure "good men." For instance, the Republican
system of nominating its municipal and legislative candi
dates the same day is one of the most potent agents for a
weak and poorly balanced and unrepresentative ticket that
exists. It has not applied with the same force to the Dem
ocrats, but if they expect to come to life this year, the Demo
crats will do well to heed this Republican experience.
There are a hundred and one things to consider.
The purpose of this reminder is to point out to B u 1 1 c t i n
readers that the route to the goal of "good men" is paved
with forethought, not with sleepy might-have-beens.
It is high time to be considering what shall be done polit
ically to put the government 01 Honolulu in shape to properly
meet the great work now at hand and to be thrust upon us
in the twenty-four months to come.

LIFE INSIIMIX DECISION.
A much vexed intention In the law
of Ilfi' Insurance has Just been set
tled by tliu Supreme Court of tho
('lilted Stalls. Tliu general rule Hint
one nmy lnsmo Unit In which ho linn
tin Intel est nnd which tho law docs
not foibld to be Illumed has nlwuys
been held to Imply Unit In order to
obtain n alld nnd effective policy of
life Insurance tho patty seeking It
mint hno some Interest In the life
upon which Insurance Is nought, biijh
the New York Sun.
This Is known as an Insurable In
tel est. To hnc such nu Interest In
the life (if another one must ho "so
related by ties of blood or marriage
as to have a rein-unable anticipation
ol advantage from his life"; or If not
thus related ho must stand In the po
sition of n creditor or surety of tho
Insured person. In tho cntly d.iys of
life Insurance the courts wero In
clined ton aid n restrictive view as to
tho classes of persons who possessed
nn Insurable Interest In tho llces of
others; and Lord Ken) on is reported
to have held that n father could not
Insure tho life ot his son because he
had no pecuniary Interest In It. Tho
tendency of the later decisions In this
country has been tho other way: ami
tho simple relationship of parent and
child has been held In man) of the
States to Rive tho parent nu Insmnblu
Inteiest In the life of the child, Irro
specthe of any pecuniary l elation or
obligation between them That a wife
has an Insoluble Inteiest in the life
of her husband is every where conced
ed; and iih ii general rule a husband
has an liiBiuablo interest In the life
of his wife, though this has been occa
sionally denied In cases where the
wife could be deemed only a burden
by reason of hopeless Invalidism, lun
acy or the like. The light of u ci ed
itor to insure the life of his debtor
ami thus senile the eventual payment
of his debt has been recognized fioin
The reason why tho law lias always
thus insisted upon the existence of
an Insurable Interest In tho party who
seeks Insurance upon the llfo of an-
othor is plain. As Mr. Justice Holmes
snjs in the caso to which we refer:
"A contract of Insurance, upon a
llfo In which the lusuieil has no In
terest Is n pure wager that gives the
Insured n sinister counter Interest In
having the llfo come to an end. Tho
ery meaning of nu Instil able Inter
est Is nu Interest In having tho llfo
continue nnd so one that Is opposed
to clime. And what is perhaps moio
Important, tho existence of such an
Interest makes n roughly selected
class of persons who by their general
relations with tho person whoso llfo
In insured are less likely than crim
inals at large to attempt to compass
tho suit which has just been decid
ed by tho Supremo Court relnted to
the ptoceeds of n policy of Insurance
upon tho llfo of ouo John C. llurcli-
ard, now deceased. The Insurance
company admitted Its liability but
could not determine whether tho
money belonged to the ndnilnlstiator
of Mr. lliirchard or to n surgeon
minied (irlgsby, both of whom claimed
It. it seems that Mr. lliirchard, after
paying two premiums and when a
third premium was overdue, fell III

that the question Is squarely present

Court decides that the holder of valid
