So far as I am arvarc I have done nothing in office lor ttiici can iij(ji
be condemned. I have not been perfect and I have made mistakes, but I
have been striving to carry out the pledges of the Republican party. Pres
RULES, PRIMARIES, CANDIDATES
If the rules of the Republican. party can be so framed that ihey will
bring out MEN rather than money, that is the revision which is needed.
As the first step in this good cause the rank and file of the party should
make up their minds to demand that, r.-gardless of Vthelher the rules call for
it or not. the candidates who are to bi Noted on in the contentions shall
make themselves known previous to th? holding of the primaries to elect
The people should know the candidates and hac an opportunity to ex
' press their preference through the elec'ion of ihe comenlion delegates.
This is the nearest Honolulu can come to a direct primary with the nom
inating machinery now available.
The candidates that wait around o i the outside for an opportunity to
sneak through the comention should b: not only condemned but defeated in
every possible instance.
Let every man who aspires to rcpr-scnt the people place himself before
the people from the start, and let him do the work of the political game from
the very outset. It, may be hard wor' and therefore discouraging, but the
man who is afraid to face hard work ! no man to represent the people in any
fe It is also to be remembered that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred the
fman who sneaks into the convention is merely a tool and goes to the Legis-"
'lature to do the bidding of an individual who has some special axe to grind.
IMPROVING MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT.
,' Suggestions for revision of the municipal law of the Territory are timely.
Naturally the law must be amended f om time to time as experience teaches
us its shortcomings and points the wa to better results in government that is
at once efficient and responsiv e to the demands of the people.
The Bulletin is not yet ready to accept the scheme of centering the
elective officers in five Commissioner.. The governmental organization in
its present form is not especially unwie'dy, and it will be just as well for Ho
nolulu to allow other cities to work out their own salvatttn in their own way
and we do the same. We have no co-iupt or cumbersome city legislature
iivhich the so-called commission government was invented lo correct.
The present general scheme could bs improved by the adoption of ihe re
call so that in eent of an exceptional y inefficient officer forcing himself up
ion ihe municipality, the way is open a' any time for the people to be rid of
, If the recall is adopted, the four-year term for municipal officers would
Lc Ciitirclv feasible, and the municipal election might well be held at some
'ojher lin- than the general Territorial election. Thus we could gel right
(down to ihe brass tacks of our own private affairs with never a 'worry over
what Hawaii, Kauai, Maui or Lanai may do. This ought to help some.
illiotigh it will still be true that whoever controls the municipal government
fttVl'Ioiolulu will haie a very large influence in shaping the complex'on of
a If the representatives of various fa:tions arc not too dogmatic, the dis
cussion during the next two months of municipal changes ought to develop
seme very excellent results.
