FOR THE PEOPLE NOT FACTIONS.
I Ii i nnl ndvK.-ilile far anvone to endeavor to extract anv ixilitical silt-
nmcance from the decision of the Territorial Supreme Court in the Haka
lau homestead case.
There is not one wo'rd or line of direct or indirect approval of the past
administration, of the public land laws of the Territory of Hawaii contained
in. the document. The decision declares that there is law .enough in the
Territory to protect the people in their title to the public lands of Hawaii,
frbm the operations of men who take up land with the ida of getting it
but not of actually homesteading in the American sense.
The decision is in the interests of the people and a more strict administra
tion of the land laws. It is entirely free from a word of commendation, and
is characteristic of the present Supreme Court a decision on the law and
the evidence, not a policy decision that serves any other interest than that
or the whole people.

NEWSPAPERS THEN AND NOW.
Many people complain of what they
calj ho yxuggerntloru and misrepre
sentations of the press of today, yet
they might alter their vIcwh If they
knew the press of a hundred or more
years ago, which. If not directly under
government control, always had the
government to fear, and which used
no pictures und only very small head
lines. We find some curious Information
about our Revolutionary war, fur
nished by the British press, In Sir
George Trevelynn's new volume on
"George III. and Charles Kox." The
English newspapers were then prob
ably Hid freest und most Independent

portance ns that pertaining to the

tored" before they were ullowed til

which a number of Englishmen, get

Americans, had the bud Judgment to
let them have their wuy. The destruc
tion of the British force at King's
Mountain was dismissed permanently
ns a false rumor. The news about
Washington' himself would seem In
credible. It was asserted losltlvely
more than once that he had deserted
to the British side.
Nor did the British people have any
means of Information through Parlia
ment, us neither reporters nor spec
