National Committeeman I lolstein and Col. Sam Parker are not only on
tlie Taft band wagon, but way up on the front seat. Tliey are demon
strating the sincerity of Hawaii's pos.tion, that it makes no -difference
whether the other fellow is getting delegates or not, Hav-vii is for Taft.
The affidavit of Supervising Principal Raymond published in the Bul
letin of Wednesday, effectively exposes part of the political game of Prin
cipal Copeland in the Department of Public Instruction. The threats of
Copeland are a gratuitous insult to any teacher who has no other purpose
than the honorable one of doing his djty as an educator. If Copeland's
position is abetted and upheld by Commissioner Aiken, it amounts to a dis
graceful combination besmirching the g:od name which the public school ad
ministration of this Territory has hithsrto held. Copeland should leave the
service of the department. And if Aiken is of the same kind and operates
under the same school of tactics, he slnuld have the good sense to get out
also. The public schools of Hawaii should be absolutely divorced from the
politics that Copeland's game represents.

And for three sessions of the Legislature a minority of Republicans in
the Senate have violated, their parly pl-'dge, t their solemn promise to the
people, by assisting 1n the defeat of the direct primary law.
The Towse bill which the Governar, vetqed.at the la( 'session, of the Leg
islature was not a direct prjmary measure. It was merely the old-fashioned
strm of legalizing the party methods of choosing delegates to conventions.
Surdy this would have been an improcment over the present scheme, where
crocked tactics and money-purchased and money-ruled primaries are a com
mon practise indulged' in by the "bes citizens." If it had become a law,
liowcvcr, it might have longer delayed ihs eventual direct primary victory.
TV direct primary record of the Territory of Hawaii is today a record of
till- political perfidy of a minority'of Republicans.
Net the slightest doubt exists as to the sentiment of the people of Hawaii
on th" direct primary.
THE PRESIDENTIAL CANVASS.,
w 1 ' '
The intense interest this has for Hawaii at this time l(es in the
possibility, almost vthe probability, of the election now; pf,a Pem
ocratic President, made possible through the seemingly irreparable
split in the Republican party. Advertiser.
The first answer to this is "Rats."
The presumption of President Taft's defeat for the nomination, on which
the foregoing paragraph was written, and the assumption that the Republican
party is irretrievably split, are expressions of timidity and a lack of knowl
edge of what Republicanism is and means to the American people.
Our contemporary evidently does not realize that President Taft's re
sponse to the Ohio result starting immediately for New Jersey is merely
carrying out the old American ideal voiced by John Paul Jones, who, when
asked if he had surrendered, replied,"'! have just Begun to fight."
&, True, the Taft campaign has not gone according to schedule but there is
a 'long road ahead before his opponent is to be conceded the victory in the
nominating convention. There's no doubt that Roosevelt is a wonder, but
there are lots of Republicans in that class and it is still a first class scrap.
And as to the fate of the Republican parly, "the seemingly irreparable
split." Never beforehas the country seen an. .ex-President $o bitterly on the
trail of a President, but when it, corncs,4tD .bitter quarrels, we, must remember
that this is'by'no means the first. Even so great a leader as Abraham Lincoln
was doubtful of renomination, and himself penned a note expressing his be
lief that he would not be reelected. Many Americans remember what a
devouring of previous utterances there was when William McKinley was
nominated 'on a gold platform; also the apparent certainty of victory for
Bryan had the election taken place a few weeks after his nomination.
We Americans fight and fight hard in our political contests. But his
tory shows that the calm secorJdlhoV8ht of the citizen, before he goes to
the polls is what finally tells the story,, and we have never yet gone seriously
The real issue today is the Individual as against the Corporation. The
difference in the Republican party uutnere'ly .'whether Taft is as ' aggressive
in behalf of the Individual as Mr. Roosevelt. The man who wins the nom
ination will secure the Republican vote, and carry on the fight for the Indi-
j 'victual as against the Corporation,. .

Canada Is being urged to keep a con-t

Mr 11 O. Donghcr, who lias Just re-'

menace by reason of her leprosy. He
states that one out of every sixty-four,

dread disease, and quotes Dr. Carl lla
mus, chief quarantine o (II cor of the
port of Honolulu, as follows "The
spread of leprosy in Ilnwnll Is due to

Dntighcr further declares that Dr. 1 tu

nothing was done owing to polities!,

lax are the laws that lepers are per-
