FOR IIAWAIPSJEST GOOD.
The Bulletin has no reason to doubt the authentic
character of the information regarding the Governorship
sent by its correspondent in Washington. Wc believe it will
be confirmed in the unofficial information received from
Washington by the Governor's friends.
But don't let a wrangle over news facts cause the people
to lose sight of the mam issue.
The real problem at this stage of the game is to reach a
solution that will prevent a continuous local political war
certain to be ruinous to the Republican party and endanger
ing the general progress ot the Territory.
Granting that a commissioner will be sent to the islands to
carry out an independent investigation, it will be of the ut
most imoortance if the chief factors in the present con
troversy. Delegate Kuhio and Governor Frcar, agree to abide
by the decision.
Some may answer that of course they will have to accept
the decision. That's true to a certain extent, but the welfare
of the Republican party is bigger than the Delegate or the
Governor and if the present war carries to the lengths which
some of the hot-heads on both sides would like to have it,
we'll have the Frear-Kuhio controversy in Congress forcing
itself into a general campaign against our industries as well
as the systems under which they are carried on. We shall
also have a Legislature' of the wild horse variety and no one
know where it will land.
This all spells retrogression, not progress. And Hawaii
cannot afford that.
As stated by this paper a few days ago, Delegate Kuhio
has gained the point sought in his original charges. He has
secured an investigation. This paper has no doubt that the
President believes an investigation by a Commissioner will
be better for all concerned than a wrangle over Hawaii in
Therefore, the wise thing for the people of Hawaii to do is,
agree to accept the conclusion of the Commissioner and for
getting what of the past is not pleasant get down to the
great work to be done in keeping Honolulu and Hawaii
abreast of the big events of which it must be a part.
EFFICIENCY ISTIIE ISSUE.
Efficiency should be the only politics in the Board of Health
or any other public board.
Efficiency is good politics.
Every step taken to promote efficiency is a definite move
toward an improvement of political conditions and a nearer
approach to the certainty of making Honolulu a more attract
ive city to live in.
You may argue the question around the block and you
cannot get away from these basic truths.
Echoes of the cries against the inefficiency of Board of
Health inspectors and inspection have hardly died out.
Is it possible that any of our first citizens are now
using their voice and influence to check such measures as
are deemed by administrative officers to be the best for se
curing greater efficiency?
There is no reason to shade the declaration made by this
paper on many occasions that the Republican party will find
its best politics, the politics bringing the best results in the
government, in the campaigns and at the polls in the politics
Let the Republican party leaders remember that the cause
for the general complaint against the Republican Board of
Supervisors is its inefficiency. The weakness of the Demo
cratic Mayor is his inefficiency when dealing with facts, fig
ures and administrative detail.
Efficiency is the issue all along the line. Political pro
grams that compromise on this point must fail, and are
therefore mighty poor politics.
The Bulletin will be very much surprised if it be found
that Republican managers are taking an attitude in any way
antagonistic to measures intended to guarantee efficiency of
