Wo call the attention of our read
ers to an editorial from tho San
Francisco Call captioned Good
Government whioh will bo found
on our first pago It will be found
very pleasant reading especially for
tho oligarcbioal annexationist
whose pledges havo been violated a
thousand times over The day of
reckoning will suroly come
If wo have not met with great
suooess we have at loast made a
bluff of encouraging tourist travel
ling to the Islands We have adver
tised tho country in newspapers and
through pamphlets and show men
like Thurston have trnvelled from
West to East showing hula girls
and dime museums to impress upon
tho mind of the unwary Yankee that
Honolulu is the place par excellence
to visit during well earned vacations
Hawaii has been represented at
numerous exhibitions and we have
received gold medals for our okole
hao and honorable mention for our
school books and benches We have
shown the world that the main
feature in the charantor of the Ha
waiians is their ability to tinkle
tinkle on an ukulele and to twist
and to twirlrand that our coffee is
aromatic but not profitable
By the way why does Mr Thurs
tons organ take up tho cudgels
against the Hawaiian village which
is to be presented at Omaha fair
and against John Wilsons Hawai
ian troup of Bingers ancLhula girls
Has it been forgotten that Mr
Thurston waB tho first to publicly
introduce the hula as a characteris
tic Hawaiian dance into the United
StateB Is it not a fact that the
hula girls and guitar climpering
boys were the main attraatiou at tbo
fair where he represented the Ha
waiian exhibit and his oycloramuT
Wilsons troup is half decent at
least while tho one managed by Mr
Thurston wsb a disgusting disgrace
to tho islands and to our people
Mr Thurston like the French demi
mondff becomes virtuous as he be
comes older and the twirl and the
twist of Wilson8 gang makes him
angry while he has forgotten the
antics of the beauties with whom he
We think it is a pity that Hawaii
should be placed on oxhibition as
a semi barbarous country to draw
tourists to Honolulu The visitors
at Omaha may beliovo that tho vil
lage and the semi nude girls and
tbo beer voiced singers are repre
sentative of life in Hawaii and thov
might come- here to see tho fun
and bo Usagreeably surprised to
find modern buildings well lighted
streets telephones and rubber tired
haoks and the hulas under strict
police supervision They will find
that tho Hawaiian women dress very
much like their sisters on tbo main
land only a little more expensive
that thoy dont wear skirts made of
ti leaves and that to many of them
the hula is an unknown dance Thoy
will find that ho Hawaiian men as
a rule out travel around with a
BSi4 a AeVW
guitar and n cranked voipp but
mostly are found with n bitiu h of
siiKar Block or a lasso or a poa
shovel iu their bauds m the cash

wall and lifn in tho Island in verj
easy but it wilt tint promote tourist
travelling nor buutfit the country iu

Wo can well understand Hint Gov
ernor Oleghorn decllued the honor
of presiding over the Hiwaiian ex
hibit at Omaha It would harillj
havo been liquified for Princess Ki
inlands faibttr to puHicly counted
nuoo an exhibition of hula landing
and grass huts an characteristic inci

The selection of Mr E Tnwse ol
the Advertiser to repreont Hawaii
at Omaha is undoubtedly very good
