CONTINUOUS WIRELESS COMMUNICATION.
What has been promised in the way of scientific achievement by the Fed-oral
Wireless Telegraph Company has como to puss, and yesterday messages
were sent nt will during tho daytime across tho twenty-one hundred miles
of gpaco which separates San 1'rancisco nnd Honolulu, without a hitch or
break in the communication; and yet the wonder of this achievement can
only bo realized when one appreciates tho obstacles which havo hcretoforo
been faced by all wireless exports who havo sought to accomplish successful
wireless telegraphy by daylight.
So many wonderful inventions havo been niado during a comparatively
short space of time that civilized nations have become hardened to anything
that may bo done in tho Held of scientific progress. It is still within tin
memory of those living when there were no matches, as wo know them, no
lamps, no stoves, oven; when tho railway wns hardly moro than nn experiment
and tho Morso telegraph tho greatest wondor of tho world; when automobiles
were undreamed of and a Hying machino ono of tho stock jokes of
tho comic papers.
But all this is changed, aud changed within a lifetime. And now comes
this now wonder, this secret of tho nir which has been harnessed to tho needs
of man. And as his needs grow and complicate now wonders will bo discovered
and received with tho complacency that marks tho peoplo of tho
world in theso rapid days of development. But tho achievement of yesterday,
when tho full text of long messages were flashed in a few seconds between
theso Islands, moro than two thousand miles from tho mainland, to tho Golden
Gate City in broad daylight and under a semi-tropic sun, will stand for a
long time as one of thoc eru marks of science nnd perfected mechanism, as
a milestone) in thnt progress which is so rapidly conquering tho forces of
nature. "" ! - -
"With tho congratulatory messages which were exchanged yesterday between
Governor Frear and tho president of tho Panama Pacific Exposition
Company, tho editor of Tho Chronicle and tho editor of Tho Advertiser, be-,
tween business firms and organizations, Is accentuated tho fact thnt Honolulu
is more than ever "in the world nnd of it."
FEEE SUGAR ALARM UNNECESSARY.
EVen if tho Democrats havo control of the presidency, the houso nnd the
senate, it docs not follow us a matter of courso that they could put through a
bill in aiiy way approaching tho Underwood Bill of tho last session, ner any
measure seriously affecting tho Biigar iudubtry. Tho majority of tho Democrats
in tho senato will be a narrow ono, to narrow that any break from
the party would leave it in tho minority. In tho matter of sugnr legislation it
is 'certain that tho senators from Colorado, Louisiana nnd Texas, all to bo
Democrats, would join hands with tho Republican minority to prevent any
thing to seriously injure tho cauo or beet sugar industry, and this defection
would provent rndicnl Democratic action.
President-elect Wilson has repeatedly stated thnt ho would not bo in fuvor
of too tovcro tariff revision such as would injure any established industry,
Ho is in favor of tariff revision downward, however, and would undoubtedly
favor a bill reducing the protection now given to sugar. It is certain that between
now and net April there will bo plenty of talk of freo sugar. It will
not como, Jiowovcr. Thoro will bo some tariff reduction, but tho worst that
may happen will not close down one Hnwaiinu plantation.
Tho Democrats cannot pnbs a freo sugar bill, oven if u majority of them
might desire to, and a majority does not.
LET BULGARIA DICTATE.
When Japan defeated Chinn and captured Port Arthur sho wns despoiled
of hqr prizo by the action of Germany, Franco and Russia. A littlo later
Russia calmly took possession. Tho Japanese promptly acquiesced in the face
of superior force and quietly set to work to pruparo for tho war with Russia.
Ten years later they hurled Russia back from Manchuria nnd Port
Arthur at enormous tacriflcc. If thoy had been left in peaceable possession
of the fruits of their first victory, it is highly probable that tho Russian war
would never havo occurred. Russia becamo overauro of her position and her
pride led to her fall.
Today tho world hns seen the rise of tho Balkan Statos, nnd the overthrow
of tho ancient Turkish Emplro in Europe. It has cost the allied States tho

SUN YAT SEN.
A report which reached tho Coast recently, to tho effect thnt Sun Ynt Sen

tho Bon Kranclsco Chronicle as follows:
According to a returning passenger by tho Chlyo Maru, it wag
"ndmlttod in .Peking that a rumor was cuircnt" thnt lr. Sun Ynt Sen
had recorved $1,000,000 for relinquishing his ambitions to become president
of tho Chinese republic in favor of Yuan Shi Kai. "It was ad.

V o thirl' ' Admissions that rumors are current do not constituto a very
serious indictment in any case, and certainly thoso who have followed
tho unselfish nnd patriotic career of Doctor gun will not bo inclined to
belioyo thnt tho former provisional president bad ncccpted $1,000,000
or any other amount for resigning office.
Tho entire career of Doctor Sun has been that of nn unpretentious,
honest individual. Tho world already has formed its opinion of tho
work ho hns accomplished for China, and that opinion is n very
Doctor Sun has shown us that ho is no passive doctrinaire, but n
very practical man. Hut in his case being a practical mnn has meant,
rimply that in his efforts townrd tho accomplishment of tho great causo
ho had in mind ho hns used tho means best adapted to tho end. There
has never been an attempt at personal nggrnndizement, no effort to
advance his personal fortunes, no suspicion of "grafting."
Tho establishment of a republic in China was one of tho greatest
tasks over attempted, and it is universally admitted that Dr. Sun Ynt
Son the chief credit for success is due. Wherever ho had been in tho
last fifteen years or moro, in Singnpore, London, San 1'rancisco, New
York, or at home, ho was animated with tho ono purpose, thnt of ousting
tho Mnnc.hu dynasty. It will require moro than admissions thnt
rumors aro current to impair his standing.
DEMOCRATS AND THE TAEIFF.
Writing just prior to the elections, Henry Clews, tho New York banker nnd
stock authority, makes tho assertion that the tariff is safe as it is for nt least
eighteen months to como nnd that, no matter who might bo elcctod, thcrtf would
"be no radical tearing down of tariff walls to tho detriment of any established
industry. "Tho tariff is no longer a one-party issue, because tho Democratic
Tanks now include a considerable protectionist clement," ho writes;. "By all
fair-minded and intelligent men of whatsoever political faith it is recognized
that tho protectivo system has been established in this country for ninny yenrs;
that important industries aro still measurably dependent upon its support, nnd
that therefore a destructive policy can not bo justified. No sane business man
Irishes to sco tho tariff smashed. What tho country needs is a gradual downward
revisiou in a manner that will croato tho least possiblo derangement. No
tariff legislation will be attempted during tho short session of congress from
December to March. It is beliovcd that Mr. Wilson, if elected, hns no intention
of calling a special session. That would pohtpono reopening of tho tariff question
until December, 1913. Should a new bill bo then introduced, experience
hows that thrco to six months may bo required for discussion. Consequently
tho probabilities aro that no actual chnngo in tho tariff can occur for a period
of about eighteen months. TWb should set nt rest all apprehensions of any
disturbance on this scoro during tho approaching winter."

suggested, however, that Germany will back up. Austria In her demands on tho
Servians, nnd that in consequence tho Power may bo involved in a war the
