DEMAGOGY HUN MAD.
This is ft country of queer politics and poii'ti'c'ians, but there is nothing in
lho Territorial campaign more astonishing than tho canvass Lincoln
is making against the land barons and in favor of the federal division
of tho public domain among email holders.
Slnco Mr. McCandless beached on Onhu, more than a quarter of a century
ngo, his chief object in life has been to become a great landed proprietor. In
ono -way or another, by acquiring government holdings, by absorbing kulcanas
and takine his local rinkts as a mortgagee, ho has acquired what would pnss
in manv countries for a dukedom. Ho admits today tho ownership of 6000,
acres of Oahu agricultural and pastoral land nnd is reputed to have many-
milcs of Bcacoast. Tho Advertiser knows of no attempts on Mr.
to loento any farmers on this great acreage. Ho is ft buyer and not a
seller. Ho purchases tho ho'ldlngs of farmers and homesteaders; nnd though
tboro is nmplo room on his wido possessions for three hundred farmers' families,
le gives his land to cattlo and to Chinese leases from which ho exacts the usual
landlord's rental. In tho agricultural development of Onhu along traditional
American lines, tho McCandless dukedom is not an aid, but nn obstacle. It
is in tho way. Tho owner could subdivide nnd profitably sell it, if ho
chose, and provide self-supporting homes for the people. Ho could, if ho
would, put hundreds of natives back on the soil and give thorn a chance, by
payments, to own small homesteads. Lincoln McCandless might
bo tho most beneficent of all our rich landed proprietors, but such a thing is
utterly foreign to his acquisitive spirit. Land, land, more landl is his incessant
cry; and if it wcro possiblo to so change tho laws ns to mako monopoly
of tho public domains easy to achieve, Lincoln McCandless would soon own a
principality equal to that of either Mr. Baldwin or Mr. Gay, against whom ho
is trying to direct the pnssions of the poor nnd homeless.
This makes an extraordinary spectacle one, as we do not hesitate to say,
of the lowest demagogy. From other islands comes tho report that tho Democratic
candidate has not been unwilling to let the natives think that if ho is
elected they will be nblo to divide the public lands among them and each get
3C0 acres. Hut this is pure humbug. To mnko any chango in tho public land
administration here, such ns tho local Democrats cnll for, would Toquire nn
alteration in tho Organic law, which could not be made savo by joint action
of the two houses of Congress and tho President. Ono would not only havo to
elect McCandless, but change the wholo complexion of tho Federal government.
"Were that practicable and the Federal control of Hawaii's public Innds followed,
our peoplo even then could not hopo to get them excepting under restrictions
quite as severe as any laid down by present laws. Morcovor, tho
natives would have to competo with nn immenso numbor of white strangers
from tho mainland, for the listed tracts. "When Oklahoma lands wcro opened,
thousands of people from every State in the Union wcro thcro to tnke them.
They gathered on tho Kansas border, and when tho cannon signal was given
they raced liko madmen to pick out tho choice Bpots. Neighboring settlers
iad no better chance than tho newest comer, nnd thoy were, ns a class, overrun
and submerged. The spectacle was liko a rush of invading cnvalry. Do
to whom McCandless offers so much that ho docs not own and so
littlo that ho docs own, rcalizo what such nn incursion would mean to them!
Jjot Hnwniians keep tho fnct in mind, for their own good, that if Washington
wore over to boIzo our public lands and open them for settlement, it would not
be dono for the benefit of tho island folk, but for tho wholo peoplo of tho
United States. Tho opening day would bo advertised in New York and Chicago
and 8nn Francisco ns well as here; and when tho timo camo tho natives
-would find themselves outnumbered over and again by haolo strangers.
They would got very littlo land nnd tho new settlers would outvote them. Finally
tho 'revenues from tho public domain, -which now go to tho Territory,
-would bo paid instend to tho treasury at Washington, thus compelling nn
increase of tnxation hero until such timo ns tho new homesteaders proved up
and became taxpayers themselves.
Lincoln McCandless' wholo appeal to tho Hawaiian voters shows that he
depends on their incxperienco nnd trusts to their credulity. Ho could do nothing
for them that ho promises without a Congress nnd n President in political
agreement with him, and in that ovont his policy would provo most dnmaging
in tho end to tho very electors to whom ho is making his plea. To chooso
lira, therefore, as Dclegato, in plnco of tho Hawaiian who has helped securo
such n vast inflow of Federal money here, and who, if returned ngain, will
havo the special opportunities for aiding this Territory which como to a veteran
member, would seem to show that Our island voters had losLlho instinct of
THE ABSENT FLEET.
When the fleet left here it probably intended to return October 7, ns the
Admiral said. It went south, as tho arrival of tho cruiser California at Suva
indicates. The trip to Suva must havo been made to get into touch with tho
lablo; nnd it seems likely that orders wcro then given from Washington which
changed those undor which tho fleet had sailed from hero.
These orders need havo had nosensatioual benring. They may merely rclato
to maneuvors and target practice. So far as this paper can learn, tho Pacific
fleet has had no maneuvers slnco Itcar Admiral Swinburne took command; but
it is now able, in company with its torpedo boats, to coadiict them, far from
observation, under open sea conditions, such ns might bo had in war,
Thcro havo been suggestions of disaster, to which wo seo no reason to give
liccd. If misfortune has befallen ono or mora of tho bonts, the wireless would
bo worked, not silenced; or, if tho distnnco wero too great for that, anothor
trip would bo mado to Suva, Thero may, of courso, havo been n grent stofm;
but remembering how easily tho Calliopo opposed itself to tho Apian hurricano
in 18SS), wo do not think theso greater or more powerful vessels of tho Amorican
fleet could bo disturbed by anything tho winds and nvcs could do.
Tho question is asked, Has tho fleet gone to Mnnilnf Wo do not know
that it could havo coaled at Pago-Pago for. bo long a trip; wo do know
that its collier Auxilinry which was ordered to coal in haste when tho fleet
went soutli nnd was in such a hurry that it took on $12 coal, is yet lying peacefully
nt tho Naval wharf. Would not orders to movo havo reached it if tho
fleet had turned into tho long trail to tho Far Eastt Is not it lying hero In
expectation of tho return of tho fleet to which it is assigned?
Hut why tho silenco of tho wireless! If intricate battlo maneuvers nro
going on, it is not likely that the wireless would bo used nt all in communicating
between ship and ship, for such would bo tho conditions of nctual warfare.
Jn fleet engagements, oven if apparatus is not shot away, an enemy's wireless
KUHIO AND MCCANDLESS.
Kuhlo and McClellan, working together, were tho most powerful Territorial
forces in and about Congress at its laBt session. As compared 'with then), tho
men from Arizona nnd New Mexico wcro mcro chiffoniers, and tho amateur
workers from Porto Itico nnd he Philippines wore nowhere. If Knhio
this year, McClellan will go with him for anothor term, and thnt will
moan tnoro appropriations nnd n more influential' placo for tho Dclegato on committees.
Tho longor a man is kept in Congress the moro opportunities ho has
to servo his constituents, and Kuhlo will havo reached a point, if sent back
to tho Uoubo this time, whero ho will have tho privileges of an old member.
Everything points to tho election of a Itcpublican House, and Hawaii can
not afford to bo represented thcro by a Democrat or a new man. To hnvo a
voterarl Dclegato there, himself part of the political majority, would put
in an even better position than over "boforo to get things.
Lincoln McCandless could not do anything for Hawaii for two years even
if tho House woro Democratic. 'That is becauso tho first term men aro never
given a chance to mix in. They aro expected to spend their timo studying tho
fystcm. Practically, with McCandless nt Washington, tho Torritory would bo
unrepresented for a term. If the Houso wcro Republican, ns it is almost certain
to be, McCandless would bo a cipher on the left of tho decimal point. Ho
would bo nt the tail-end of no-account committees, nnd ho hopo to
catch tho Speaker's eye; nor would ho bo nblo to advanco any Democratic
policy while the House or Senate remained Republican. And it is about a generation
since both the lower and upper houses wero Democratic at tho samo timo.
and it may be longer beforo they nro again.
Tho only thing that attracts -votes to McCandless is his promise of a chango
in tho Innd Inwslbnt would bring so many white speculators here to tako up
homesteads thnt the native land-seeker would be overrun and submerged. No
Hawaiian wants anything of that kind. Ho is belter off as ho is.
It is inconceivable under all tho circumstances tho success of Kuhio in
Congress; his- growing chnnco of usefulness; tho honor ho is bringing to the
Hawaiian name, that he should be voted down to elect a man who could do
nothing thero that he promises nnd would mako things worse off for tho
if he were successful in Jiis efforts.
PESTS IN BALED HAY.
Duo caro is taken to fumigate shrubs, flowers and plants which como hero
by mail nnd freight, but so far as wo can learn, no precautions arc used with
baled hay. Tho dirt which shields tho roots of a California roso bush or lily
Is looked upon as a hotbed of pests and it is but how about tho dirt which
comes with hay raked up from California fields and baled without tho slightest
attempt being mado to clean HI
Recently a buyer of coast hny in Honolulu, an entomologist himself, collected
twenty-two pounds of dirt nnd found six insectB, some of them destructive,
in ono bale. If hay brings all theso .wholesale elements of danger into
tho country unchallenged, it almost seems a wnsto of timo to bother with
tho retnil elements which como with plants, unless tho living growths carry
pests which hny docs not.
When the hayrnkes sweep over the California soil they collect a miscellaneous
lot of things, including clods which aro filled with the insect life of tho
dirt. Also thcro are snakes and other creeping things. Twice, within tho past
decade, snnkes have been killed while crawling out of baled hny, ono case
occurring nt tho wharf and nnothcr at Olaa. No wonder tho smaller pests
find easy transportation in compressed hay if serpents Btand it.
In view of theso facts doosjtj notsoem wiser to import tho natural enemies
of tho agricultural pests than to rely so much on inspection t To the layman
It seems a bit absurd to fumig9tea plant which may have let loose half its
burden of insects" upon tho shipHbnt brings it, thus leaving the way clear for
n distribution nt the wharf.

PHILIPPINES WANT NAVAL BASE.
In a discussion of tho need of a navy and naval bases to protect American
interests in tho Pacific, the Mnnila Times urges the establishment of ono strong
baso iu tho Philippines, recognizing tho necessity of fortifying Hawaii and
establishing tho Pearl Harbor base, but not conceding that this is by any menns
sufficient. Tho Times says;
"The placing of Hnwnil In a protected condition does not end tho militnry
task in the Pacific. Hawaii is of vital importance, but it is not even tho halfway
house in tho American highway to Cathay. Hero in tho Philippines is the
outpost, nnd here must be another stronghold. This is n man's gamo that is,
being played in tho Far East, and it iB the strong man who will win. The
American people havo spokciPtheir will as to tho futuro of China, but their
words nro idle and will remain idle just so long as the United States is unable
to enforce them. Ships of war can not alone execute our writs. Thoso ships
can not forever keep tho sea, nnd they must have bases. And those bases must
bo protected and supplied with coal, docks, nnd shops. Tho socalled baso in
tho Philippines, is in no sense worthy of tho name."
Under tho head of "Straight Ticket Talk," tho Bulletin quotes somo admirable
sentiments from Governor Frear. Among them aro tho following:
As I said in my speech) at Aala Park, country comes first, party
second, ns a mutter of course.
Of course, thcro may bo men on tho party ticket who should not
bo voted for, olthor for the good of tho country or party, but just
whero tho line should bo drawn Is a mattor for individual judgment.
If this is straight ticket talk, tho readers of the Advertiser aro entitled to
call it n straight ticket organ.
Tho 23d of this month will mark the 25th anniversary of tho arrival hero of
Catholic Sisters to tako up work among tho lepers of Molokni. Theirs was a
lioroic: consecration, tho dangers of it seeming far grcator than thoy do now;
and tho Sisters have, after tho manner of their kind, beon utterly faithful in
thoir work. Tho rounding out of tho quarter-century bIuco their arrival will, no
doubt, bo nn ocension of ceremony among the Catholics of Hawaii, and ought
to inspire somo sultnblo testimonial something thnt would let tho Sisters
know that appreciation of tlicim Ib not confined to their own church.

AN AGE OF MIRACLES.
On Saturday night wns performed on this island what ten years ngo would
havo been a miracle. Seated in his office at the Kahuku wireless station, Oporator
Isbell listened to a man aboard a steamer In tho Bering Sen, exchanged messages
with a man in San Frunciseo, nnd communicated with' tho flagship of
Admiral Swinburno nearly a thousand rnnciio the south. Tho wireless car
heard tho news over a water area twice- na largo as that of tho wholo United
States, while this was only one-half tho area of the Pacific with which Honolulu
can bo kept In touch. And few persons niarvcllod at the marvel. It was
"wireless" that was all.
