REOAItDINCJ WATER METERS.
In tlio diseustion of tlio pint) of llio public works department to lnstnl
water motors throughout tho city and to toll water by tlio meter-gallon instead
of by tho heretofore existing flat rnto, Instancos of Increases In water bills
In 8omo of thoso plncot now using meter nro being, cited and tlio figures aro
should not bo installed. To moot
being advanced as nn argument why meters
this argument, figures could bo quoted to show Instances where tlio meter-rate
has resulted In lowering water bills, but what .would bo tlio user What
Individual bills for meter users may bo now has nothing whatovcr to Jo with
tho merits of tho meter system. It only goes to prove that tho charge, per
thousand gallons may bo now too high, although lower than is charged In
many mainland cities, and can not bo advanced to proo that tho installation
of a meter systom and tho proper readjustment of tho rates that would necessarily
be mado would not bo a material benefit all round for Honolulu.
If it is proper to tell eggs by tlio dozen, milk by tho quart, butter by tho
pound, gas by tho cubic foot, electricity by tho kilowatt, and ribbon by the
yard, then It is proper to sell water by the gallon. The only matter to worry
, i tho prico charged per gallon; If that bo fair, then nono should object
to tho installation of a meter to monsuro tho water to bo paid for. Snlo by
meter-gallon can work no posiblc hardship nnd can in no way rniso tho price
waterworks must bo sufficient to
of wator. Tho revenues of tho Honolulu
pay operating expenses, interests on bonds nnd depreciation nnd nothing else,
nnd tho rnto per gallon should bo tho total number of gallonB used divided
by the total cost of operation nnd interest plus whatever limy bo doomed
nocctsary for n sinking fund from which to provide extensions nnd repairs.
Tlioeo who uso water must pay for it and what could bo fairer than to
mnko thoo who use tho most pa1 proportionately? Thoro-Is every reason-to
suppose that tho cost of mnintennnco of tho Jionolulu waterworks would
bo less under a meter system, whereby it would bo nn object for householders
to rliminnto waste. Anyono today could find a hundred evidences of wntcr
waste In any part of tho city in any hour, nnd that wasted water has to be
paid for now by tlio ono who is careful around his own premises ns well ns
by tho waster. To discourngo thoso whoso existence somo fear, the man who
would stnro his lawn to save tho few cents its.irrlgntion would Cost, a minimum
charge for each water connection could bo imposed.
Thcro is another matter in connection with tho water question that a
good many appear to ho overlooking and that is tho fact that tho growth of
Honolulu is limited to tho extent of its water supply and the timo lias come;
when tho prodigal wasto of water will lino to stop. Tho artesian lovel is
steadily falling and thcro nro very few eoutccs of water not already tapped.
Honolulu has no groat hinterland to depend upon, Tlio wasto of today will
bo the woeful want of tho morrow. Honolulu now has plenty of water for1
all legitimate needs nnd it can bo sold at n prico below tho average charged
in cities of liko size. But Honolulu has not water to wasto and tho sooner
a stop is put to tho misuse of it tho better for nil concerned.
ACCEPT THE OLIVE BRANCH.
Adopting the only scnsiblo course under tho circumstances, tho masters nnd
mates of Harbor 51 decided jestcrdoy to accept tho offer of tho officials of the
Company to meet with them nnd discuss such real or fancied grievances
as tho men may feel they bao rclatie to the treatment accorded them by
officials of tho corporation. Tlio main issue, as to tho right of tho company to
employ or dischnrgo men without making public its reasons for doing so, has been
held not dchatablo by tho company, n point in which it lias apparently been sustained
by public sentiment.
By agreeing to a conferenco under tlio condition made by tho company, tho
masters nnd mntes havo indicated their willingness not only to recede from a position
which tho history of industrial controversies shows to be untenable, but to
consult tho interest of tho public which in n way has ns much nt stako ns the
company and its cmplojes.
With this concession on the part of tho captains and mates, it is bcliced
tho officials of the company will display the sumo coniincndahlo spirit; that nil
plans for radical action on either sido will bo abandoned, and that tho only lasting
result of tho controversy will bo a broader and better understanding between
cmplojcr and cmplojc, which will tend to the good of nil.

CHEESE TO THE RESCUE.'.
Despite reports to tho contrary, it appears that, thanks to cheese, the Turkish

other hand tho Sultan's soldiers aro growing sleek and plump by an enforced diet

IMPEACHING FEDERAL COURT JUDQES.
Western folks nro "out after" their federal judgos, according to tho

federal judges moro unpopular than in secttons up and down tho Mississippi

All that Is now pnesod nnd It Is well that It hat for with thnt
tntus it was vroll nigh tinpottibto to eonvlrt n Judgo by tho required two-thirds
ote And whan there was stirli n condition, It wnt discouraging for tho house
of ropreicntntlvpit to go through tho tedious work of lmpoachlng with
beforchnnd thnt It wan likely to come to naught.
Thoro aro somo who remember when tho late Charles W. Bwayne wns
impeached eight years ngo, he being then a district federal judge In Florida,
how all tho Southern Democrats voted against him nnd nil tho Republicans,
or practically all, voted foi him. That hardly could happen now In tho tennto
and It will probably bo a long timo boforo thoro will bo a sufficient revival
of partisanship thoro to permit of such another record,
Thcro havo been but nlno Impeachment trials beforo the senate in all tho
history of tho government. Probably thcro should havo been many more and
apparently the sennto's functions as a court-of impeachment will bo oxorclscd
moro in tha years to come, unless federal judges nro moro carofnl of tholr conduct.
But tho Increasing facility far such trials will undoubtedly bo notod
by tho judiciary. Most of its men are very highmindod and conscientious in
tho dischnrgo of their duties hut of course thcro aro others who do not como
within that honorablo category. Tho rccont trial and conviction of Judge
Archbnld would olono bo a warning but moro than that Is tho chango in sentiment,
which has quickened congress to givo prompt and careful consideration
to such charges.
Very much is said about tho recall of judges but thcro is much truth in
isfcrtions thnt tho oiling up of tho impoachmont machinery at tho Capital
makes a recall of judges unnecessary. Congress can recall them and apparently
will recall thorn if thoro is ovldonco to warrant it.

Tbo most serious objection to 11 it
tlmt in a eloto election a voter might
by hit second or other cholees contribute
to the election of bis second or
other choice man ovr hit first cholco
man. Hut. as an offset to this risk ho
has by tho soma meant a greatly Increased
chanco of getting tomcono acceptable
to him inttcad of no one, supposing
his first choice to havo proved
hopeless. In any case, a man of tho
typo acceptable to tho great body of
voters is sure io uo selected to lar at
this is humanly possible. Moreover,
tho counting can be dons in tho pre-

the final and most exciting part of the

Tho Grand Junction plan, is
adapted to tho support of all tho
clearly acceptablo candidates as dis
balloting nt a nominating convention.
Tho votor has only to mnko a few

era. They say: "There vvero 3305
votes cast aeninst Todd nt Grand
Junction nnd only 1051 for him and ho
ought not to havo won." Of course,
tho absurdity of this contention can bo
seen from the fact thnt there wero only
1847 voters in tho entiro city' of whom
1051 bnd expressed their preference for
Todd. Moreover, even granting as a
concession tn this typo of mind for argument's
sako that there vvcro 3305
votes against Todd, thcro vvero even
more against each of the other candidates
"3G17 against" Bannister, tho
favorite of those who argue this way,
to 739 for him.
Tho fnct is thcro were only 794
voters (tho, difference between Todd's
total vote "nnd tho total number of
voters) who did not want Todd for
mayor, nnd of the 1155 who put in n
vote for n pro-charter
1051 votors automatically camo
to agreement on Todd.
Less of Mud-Slinging.
Another ndvantaco of tbo preferen
tial system is drawn from tins election
in Grand Junction. Campaigns will bo
enrried on with less mud-slinging thnn
in former days. Every decent candidate
will bid for tho second and third
choices of the friends of tho other
candidates by abstaining from unjust
criticisms. But if thcro is a sharp lino
between enforcement nnd
of law, or any other definite issue
of good and bad government, all iho
candidates of each class will freely
criticize thoso of tho other class. Such
lines will bo sharply drawn. Probably
each sido will bo ablo to find two or
threo or moro candidates in tho list
who will adequately represent its point
of view. Tho majority will bo ablo
automatically to get behind some man
who commands their confidence.
