MONEY FOR THE ARMORY.
When the sugueslion wa made the oilier evening that (lie Territorial
cniitinnenl fund should carry the burden of the $23,000 increased expense
ntesary lo secure the construction of an armory large enough to meet llie
demands of Greater I lonolulu, it sounded feasible.
The Bulletin is satisfied that owing to the drafts made on the
contingent fund by the sanitation campaign only six thousand dollars remains
in that comcnicnl resort in time of strc'ss, and this is required lo meet the ex
licuses of the various bureaus occupying temporary quarters during llie repair
of the Judiciary building.
Consequently this fund cannot be drawn upon for this purpose, and the
icrponsitiihty for erecting an armory that will suit the needs of the city falls
itjioii llie municipal authorities.
'I he Bulletin is satisfied thai the community will support the Sup
er! isors in a broad policy on this matter. The city needs the armory and
money will be saed in the long run if the proposed appropriation is made.
We musl build for the future. We must keep faith with the Federal Gov
ernment which has gicn the land for the armory and our municipal funds
musl be imcslcd with business judgment.
'1 he Supen iors cinnot do better than follow the program outlined.
THE BITTER CONVENTION FIGHT.
If the National Republican convention for 1912 is not punctuated by one
or more riots, it will be on account of the wonderful self-control of the
American people at a time of remarkable tension and excitement.
NevVr in the recent history of llie country has there been such bitterness
and determination to control a nominating convention. Never have there
been such demonstrations on the part of the people as those which the cables
lell us greeted Col. Roosevelt in his movements about the convention city.
Never has there been such absolute disiegard of what might happen lo the
parly, if the contest goes too far. Bolli sides appear lo be willing and anx
ious lh.it the division and contention shall gq the full limit, and there is not
much suggestion from the outward expressions, of a desire to come together
afler the contest for the nomination is over. The spirit of "lick or get
lirkrd" is in the atmosphere.
No one can forecast what the outcome will be.
According to the cable rciwrts to date President Taft has the temporary
organisation fairly well cinched. Wc say fairly well, because it seems that
llie cinch depends on the vote of the New York delegates. The New York
ers arc supioscd lo be for President Taft, but just the same the New York
combination is a slippery one, and if it be deemed "good politics" to throw
Mr. Taft overboard, he will be thrown willi very little ceremony. Mr.
Barnes apears to hold the key to the situation.
Roosevelt's fight has all the ear-marks of the contest of a man who is
beaten on the face of the returns but hopes lo make a showing lhal will put
fear in the hearts of his opponents and thus possibly turn the tide. The
Roosevelt game is now and will be, to hold up the Taft steam roller just
long enough to stampede the convention.
Wc doubt if there is a trick known to political manipulation -that is not
being turned. The statement of a discovery of bogus tickets (o the conven
tion hall is one of the first warnings of a riot, as well as evidence of political
In a crisis like the present, control of the galleries is almost as important
as control of the delegates on the floor. With the Tafl men in charge of the
disiK-nsation of tickets, the issuance of bogus tickets of admission will prob
ably be credited (o the opposition, and there will be no lack of "strong-arm
men" lo head the contending forces in llie rush for (he galleries.
The disturbing feature of the over-Sunday cables is that the Roosevelt
program contemplates holding a separate convention, while protesting that
no party bolt will be considered.
This means that a large share of the Roosevelt men will leave the con
vention if their contesting delegates are not seated. They will hold a con
vention of their own with, of course. Mr. Roosevelt the nominee. We fail
to see anything in this but a third parly movement with the Republican
party split in much the same way as the Democrats were broken in the first
At the present writing there appears no hope of a compromise, but events
will move rapidly in the next fortv-eight hours, and there can be little doubt
that the managers of both sides will do their utmost lo save a breach in the
Republican party, if such a thir.R is possible under ihe present tension of
