HAWAII SUGAR AND THE TARIFF.
Tlirrc is not the slightest danger of the free sugar hill passing Congress at
tliis session. That such a measure will ever get through, is remote.
The result in the United States Senate is likely to he an approval of a
very moderate reduction of the tariff, more conservative indeed than the
Biistuw amendment. This may be accepted by the House but a deadlock
Under such circumstances Hawaii will have to find something other than
llie tariff legislation on sugar to worry about when seeking for trouble. The
situation is very satisfactory as compared with any other section of the coun
try, directly interested in tarilf legislation.

Exposure of Mr. Roosevelt's deal
trigs with the Harvester Trust and
moro especially with J, I'lerpont Mor
gan und Mr. I'erklns Is a sensation
that muy appear disastrous to the Ho
publican party, but the threshing out
of It Is certain to do the country good.
It will open up the w'hole political
game as It has been pluyed by it spec
tucular Idol and ullow the people to
proceed with u clear understanding.
Whut Mr. Hoosevelt will do. Is as

Up to the present writing the Inci

WHAT ROOSEVELT IS DOING.
Roosevelt has been u name ulways
certuln to cause the New York World
to troth at the, mouth.
Yet from the New York World
comes the .clearest statement yet pre
sented Of the good that Roosevelt Is
doing In his campaign for u third
term in (ho White House. In reading
the following editorial It should be
remembered thut The World Is Demo
cratic In politics but decidedly Inde
pendent in Its purtlzan comment:
Mr. Roosevelt is beuten for the nom
inutioo for President, but The World
hopes that he will continue his cum
pulgn until the JS'utlonal Convention
meets, as the Illinois result will dis
pose him to.
His nomination for President would
bo u great calamity, but Ills campaign
rur the nomination Is a great public
benefit. He Is shaking up the dry
bones of fossilized respectability. He
Is scaring the Republican party out of
its smug self-complacency. Ho Is
driving it down the, road of political
progress In spite of ItBelf, und the
further ho drives It the better.
The Republican party can not long
er stand pat. It is obliged to move
with the procession and "pander to
the moral sentiment cf the commun

The Rochester Convention furnishes
only one Illustration out of many of
the excellent results of Mr. Roose
velt's dush for the White House.
It, Is a fur more representative con
vention than would have been held
had not. Mr. Roosevelt tried to seize a
third teiin. It is a far more progres
sive convention. It will como closer
to meeting the real Issues of American
politics, It Is thinking much more
about the American people and much
less nbout the Wull street contribut
or's to the campaign fund than it
would have tlbne had not Mr. Roose
velt's candidacy threatened the coun
try with political disaster.
What Is true at Rochoster will bo
true at Chicago. Tlie national plat
form' will be a better platform than It
would ha'e been If Mr. Roosevelt had
kept out of theontest. A better Hint
form at Chicago will force a better
platform at lialtlmore. The Demo
cratic parly will have, to keep up with
the procession. "
President Hutler of Columbia, in his
speech as Temporary Chairman of the
Rochester Convention yesterday, de
fined "the supremo Issue of 1912" ns
"the maintenance of our republican
form of government." This Is Incor
rect. The battle for the maintenance
of our republican form of government
has been fought nnd won. Mr. Roose
velt's third-term candidacy hns col
lapsed. Ills putont-mvdlclnc remedies
have been repudiated by the common
sense of tho American people; but the
reat Issues remain.
Populur discontent docs not end
with tho downfall of Mr. Roosevelt's
ambition or with the repudiation of
his spurious nostrums. Turin nbuscs,
corporation abuses, financial abuses,
court abuses, boss rule, nnd privilege
Intrenched behind the luw thesu are
all vltul questions grounded in real
public wrongs. Mr. Roosevelt's cam
paign has shown even the ISourbons
of American politics thnt these Issues
can no longer be Ignored. They must
bo dealt with, or this country will get
Roosevelt or worse than Roosevelt.
Let there be no Illusions nbout that.
COUNTING COSTS OF SCHOOLS.
The Department of Public Instruc
tion is JtiBt In receipt of a new bul

of City Schools," published by the
liureau of Education ut Washington,

Over $200,000,000 are expended nn-

the United States.
Doubtless thousands of dollars of
this amount might be suved each year

their money among the various school
activities and tho unit cost of each
activity. Likewise cities which are
