Announcement, by the Secretary of War, of the military
program for this island is most significant of the Govern
' mail's intentions. It should also suggest to this community
that any movement on its part that would tend to throw the
lines of communication between this port and the mainland
into the hands of alien interests ,must be rated as more than
a doubtful proceeding.
If you want to get the news and get it first, read the
Bulletin. An afternoon paper last Saturday devoted a
large part of its first page to the story of the proposed Oahu
College gymnasium, and the Rip Van Winkle of local journal
ism woke up yesterday morning and repeated it. The Bul
letin first gave out this news on Wednesday, October 25,
and has referred to it from time to time since.
Incidentally, the morning paper today published a reprint
story, on a cooperative pineapple cannery. The story was
taken from a Maui paper, which in turn, got it from the
Bulletin of last Tuesday. Now the morning' paper pub
lishes il practically word for word a it was originally given
out by the Bulletin, and publishes it moreover, as its
HAWAII AND PRESIDENT TAFT.
Editor Evening Bulleti n: I see that you disap
prove the idea of Delegate Kuhio working up an anti-Taft
delegatoin to the National Republican Convention. I would
like to know for whom the Bulletin stands in this nation
al program. Who docs it wish to see nominated on the Re
publican national ticket?
Honolulu, Jan. 27, '12. OLD SUBSCRIBER.
That is a fair question. The Bulletin is for Taft.
This paper believes that Mr. Taft is the only man who
has ever held the office of President who personally knows
and fully understands the situation in the Pacific. We be
lieve he is a good President for the Nation as a whole.
Hawaii cannot sit in ilirinmont nn nil tlm note nf nmiccinn
and commission committed by Mr. Taft since he has been
in office. It is the duly of the Republicans in this part of
the country to draw their conclusions on whether Mr. Taft
or one Of his known nnnnnpnt? will hnet enmn Amnl.; :
j tcrests in this part of the world.
pan hn lint linn nndiinn
The Bulletin confesses to a great admiration for
Senator La Follette. He has solved in his own State many
problems that are now National issues. Hon. James R.
Garfield, another Progressive, made the best impression in
Hawaii of any Government official' who has ever visited the
islands. He fairly oozed efficiency and energy. The Bul
letin likes Kent and Murdock, Norris and the rest.
m But the fact still remains that the attitude of the Progres
sives as thus far expressed is absolutely ruinous to the fut
ure of Hawaii and American interests in the Pacific. They
want to kill Hawaii to cure its ills. Generally speaking the
caders of the Progressives arc against the protective tariff;
they believe in the reduction of the army, and they can't en
thuse over the navy. They cry out against any ship subsidy
that is practical for building up the merchant marine in com
petition with foreign lines. They have a lot of interior
statesmen who do not seem to realize that the United
States of America has a waterfront.
Perhaps they are not all that they seem, but that's the
way they size up from this distance, and from the meas
ures they are supporting or opposing.
President Taft on the other hand rings true on every point
affecting American interests in the Pacific. He has been in
this part of the world and knows the great future that is
before us. He understands that. the United States by a
weak policy can lose, at this stage of the world's history,
prestige that will require years and perhaps wars to regain.

attitude of Hawaii on the Philippine tariff. For this reason
some of our people speak of him as unfriendly. It is about
time they should forget that idea. The Philippine tariff has
been accepted and Hawaii hot only still lives but the cause
for Presidential prickly heat has ceased to exist.
Now the question arises whether Republicans in Hawaii
arc to act on the facts as they appear to Americans in Ha
waii and the Pacific or are supposed to pass judgment on the
whole United States.
If Mr. Taft had done anything radically 'and viciously
wrong there could be but one answer to this question. We
should join with the decent men of the mainland and assist
in ousting him.
But we must admit there is at least'an honest difference of
opinion on this point.
We know Mr. Roosevelt is disappointed in Mr. Taft and
Roosevelt was and is a good friend of Hawaii. Wc know
that Mr. Taft is being most generously attacked and seems
to have lost some friends. This is hard to understand.
But is this any reason why we of Hawaii should desert Mr.
Taft when we know that so far as American policies in the
Pacific are concerned he has been ABSOLUTELY RIGHT?
