Hon! S. Porry Smith, a great authority
in Polynesian languages will
nrriro hero during the month from
Now Zealand. Wo are glad ho is
coming; tho languago of Mr. Dole's
official organs is getting too much
for us and a competent intorproter
it needed. Our readoro will appreciate

HE STEEBS THE J3HIP.
Mr. S. B. Dolo has triod to steer
the ship of the Hawaijan Stato
through the breakers of dissatisfaction,
hatred and the genoral opposition
of tho Hawaiian people. He
has tackled tho Japaneso and
Chinese questions and has succeeded
in avoiding an issue through procrastination.
Ho has been unablo to
ottle the Hawaiian question, and in
spite of his efforts to conciliate
the people from whom he and his
participants in crime stole a
be still finds himself face to face
with an opposition composed of
men, women and children of the
soil and of those whoso principles
and ideas of honor prevontod them
fr,om joining him in his sol fish
But why should a man bo
to steer a ship of State who cannot
manage - the helm of a vessel,
bound for the "safo" Pearl Harbor,
which has boon desoribed as suita
ble for the larget fleet of tho United
States by every annexationist.
The white squadron hasn't tried
"jot to enter Pearl Harbor and for
very good reasons. Tho great admirals
stationed hero are not anxious
to run tho American navy ashore
on the reefs guarding the magnificent
harbor, which tho jingoes claim
will bo tho stronghold of America,
and incidentally a source of promotion
and higher wages to naval
officers at tho expenses of tho American
Dole, however, braved the dangers
and a fow 'days ago :ho sailod to
Pearl Harbor in his yaoht tho Bonnie
Dumloe. His skippor wai not on
board but tlioro were yachtsmen,
like the "boss" of tho Yorktowu and
others who ought to know how to
kandlo a boat.'
A fair broozo was blowing and
playing with tho Dolo
whiskers. Tho Bonnio Dundoo had
a movo on, and aftor a small difficulty
sho loft the harbor and carried
the party of navigators towards
Puuloa. It is fortunnto that tho
course from tho harbor to the
of Pearl Harbor is not inconvenienced
by rocks or shnllow
grounds. That fuot saved tho yaoht
from touching bottom until she got
into tho lochs of tho groat harbor,
which tho naval officers who have

"Captain" Dole passod tho entrance
and then his yacht ran
ashore. Tho sails wore lloppiug aud
au executive council was called to
decide whothor the canvusn should
bo pullod down or whether it should
bo loft to Iho wind to do tho business.
Tho meeting lastod about 25
minutes and then poor old Dole was
just as puzzled a ho is aftor listening
to his Cabinet councils when
annexation or a now typewriter for
a department are discussed.
Tho sails wont down, howovor,
and after somo distress signals tho
Bennington launch, stationed at
Ponrl Harbor was obtained and tho
presidential yacht was floated once
more, by the assistanco of tho
Tho president sailed back. His
party would have preferred to walk
or tako tho train for home, but tho
hour was late and no naval officer
will ever gn back-on Dole, tho man
who was placed in position by
Wiltze, the Captain of tho Boston,
the "daisy" of tho U. S. navy. All
stayed with Dole, but on tho return
trip someone else did tho steering.
At tho ontranco to Honolulu harbor
the festive yachtsmen wore mot by
the Yorktown launch, which had
been sent out to fish up the remains,
at least, of her "boss," and eventually
all wore lauded safe and sound.
The "opposition" !b glad to eob
"friend" Dole, tho "enomy," out of
tho roach of danger, but wo hope
that the brave old revolutionist in
the future will take his skipper along
when he goes out and
run no more risks to his invited
guests. To steer a State to Sheol
is bad enough; thn result, howovor,
means gonoral disaster. To run a
yachting party ashorb and into the
water is quite different. It may end
in a job for the undertakers. Remember
that U. S. warshjps are not
always on hand to pull Dole's establishment
out of deep water.

His death thins tho ranks of one
of the most notable and influential
thinking men of the century, and in
tokon of this his political opponents
vie with his myriad friends in paying
homage to his momory and
his last words showed the
true creed of his heart and brain:
"I am for men, tho equal rights of
all men. Let us bo done with ask
ing privileges for tho laboring men."
The writer knew him intimately
in tho earlier days of his struggles
in San Francisco, during tho poriod
that he was preparing his famous
work which gave him intornational
fame, "Progress and Poverty," and
after ho had aohiovod his honors.
Not ondowed with boauty of person,
ho was gifted with so loveable a
character that he on rj oared all who
met him to him in a manner almost
magnetiosl and fanatical, "To
know him was to lovo him." His
manly traits and indomitablo
undor difficulties that would
havo crushed men of smaller geuius
won for him tho esteem aud respect
of thosp who could not agree with
his political opinions. Ho was tho
prophet and leader of tho poor and
by thorn will his memory and labors
ho especially cherished.
