vi4, sad Mr AUtr.
Ecr uincc William McKInloy came
IrtT prominence as a member of congress
there has been a good deal of
talk in a quiet way. In Ohio, about
' Mi Kinley Luck." This has extended
bfjond the confines of Ohio since Mr.
McKInley became n man of national
prominence. When his congressional
district was gerrymandered by the
democratic legislature of Ohio in February,
1SD0, so as to try to prevent his
riMlertion, it was said by many that
it would result in landing McKInley
in the White House. After a most
narvolouFcampaign McKInley was defeated
by less than" three hundred
otcs in a district that was intended
to have nearly J.000 majority against
him This defeat brought about his
nomination and election as governor
of the btnto, in 1S91, the people feeling
that ho had been unjustly deprived of
re -election to congress, which by right
he should have had. In 1S93 he was
triumphantly governor by
the largest majority ever given to any
candidate for that office In the state,
up to that time, with the exception of
the majority for Brough over
Ills nomination for president In 1S9G
was made by the people long before
the republican convention met at SL
IxjuIr In June. From preclncl primaries
up to the national convention,
delegates were instructed by the people
for McKInley, and his nomination
was made In spite of the opposition of
Piatt, Quay, Clarkson. Reed and other
party leaders. In 1892, when an attempt
was made to head off Harrison's
renomlnatlon at Minneapolis J.y
Fpringing McKinley's name, Mr. Mc
Kiniey Himself challenged the vote
of his own state and prevented a stampede
to himself. Whether it was Iu;k
or good judgment, the result of the
election Of 1S92 made a good many
people In Ohio renew the talk of
Luck." Then It was talked
about in the closing days of the cam
palgn of 1S9C, when It was seen that
the wave for Bryan and freo silver,
which seemed to sweep the counlry
immediately following the Chicago
convention, was receedlng like a fast
With the coming of tho Spanish war
there was more talk of
Luck." and so there has been at Intervals
throughout tho president's administration,
including the unanimous re-nomination
In keeping with this "Mckinley
Luck" It Is to be noted that on the
th day of November there was not a
drop of rainfall or anything approaching
a storm in any part of the great
Vnlted States. The day throughout
the entire union was a bright,
fall day; just the ideal election
day. When the extent of the country
Is considered this Is quite remarkable,
and It Is something that has not occurred
on the occasion of a presidential
election before in very many
years. It was said following the defeat
of Blaine in 1SS4 that the storm
of election day that year kept at home
enough republican votes In the State
or ?w ork to have insured the
"Plumed Knight's" election. But as
there has apparently been "McKInley
Luck" throughout tho career of the
present president, so there was
"Blaine Hoodoo" connected with the
career of tho brilliant man from Maine.
Let us hope that the "McKInley
Luck" will not desert the present
of the Wuite House until he
has so far carried on the work of constructing
the canal, which
is one of his ambitions, as to leave the
work where it cannot fail of completion
when he retires to private life on
the 4th of March, 1905.
"Hawaii may indeed give thanks it
it is found possible to attract Italian
immigrants to the plantations as
against laborers," says an evening
contemporary, and therein it shows
that It is not familiar with negro and
Italian laborers. If Hawaii receives
any considerable number of Italian laborers
sho will long have cause to
regret the fact They are in the main
a turbulent. lawless DeoDle and the
most undesirablo population ever
brought from Europe. They live on
what a negro would starve to death
on and like the Chinese they hoard up
their earnings with the express intention
of returning to the land of
their birth. They drain a country il
wealth rather than add to Its wealth.
On the other hand the negro is not
only a good worker but he Is an. English
speaking American citizen. He
Is a royal spender of his money and
he lives on tho fat of the land so long
as he is able to earn money enough
to do bo. While he may be guilty of
petty pilfering sometimes, your negro
laborer of th south Is a peaceful,
fnnlorlne, rollicking creature taking
little heed for the morrow, a Irieid
to every one, and looking always on
the bright side of things. Snch a laborer
is Infinitely to be preferred to
the ill-humored, suspicions
Italian and his inevitable society of
assassins, the Mafia.
We can well understand the feelings
that fill the heart of the Independent,
beating In sympathy for the
native popelation, bat there is o
stemming the tide. The xnalabinl
soon develops into a voter and the
registration of voters two years hence-will
be an unpleasant revelation to
many a man. The flow of humanixy
can no more be turned back than can
tho tides- it will be political suicide
for the natives to attempt to maintain
independent political action. This is
teta in no spirit of aggression and
the truth thereof will become apparent
before the election two years
According to The Republican's!
Washington correspondent a new fteid
of usefulness may open up in the national
capitol for lobbyist Haywood.
He might make an effort to get the
ear of the President and Mark Banna
and the heads of the departments
and thus become the referee for Ha
wailan appointments. Evidently the
sugar planters builded better than
they knew when they recognized the
value of the gentleman whom the
United States thought it wa3 taking
good care of by providing him with a
A Board of Health that will deliberately
suppress the truth about Bubonic
Plague In the city as the San
Francisco Board has done, and is now
doing, can be depended upon to send
its lepers to other communities or do
almost any other disreputable and ig
noble act. San Francisco is now sowing
the wind in this matter and she
will reap the whirlwind with the very
highest rate of interest-
While not written rriniarily for a
Thanksgiving sermon the article of
Mrs. L. Clare Davis on another page
is a better Thanksgiving sermon than
many that will be delivered from pulpits
over the land toda We fufty
agree with Mrs. Davis that there is
too much coddling of young men for
their own good in these days.
Every one can at least give thanks
today for the sunshine and God's pure
air and for good health, which we
doubt not, nearly every one In Hawaii
Wanted. A telephone company in
Honolulu that will afford tho people

Constitution and the Flag.
From tho Nation.
Two of President McKinley's own
judicial appointees In Hawaii have
adopted the heresy that the Constitu
tion follows me flag. Judges' Galbraitb
and Humphreys of tho Hawaiian Su
preme Court ordered the discharge of
a prisoner convicted under territorial
laws which, the court held, were
to tue Constitution of the
United States, and therefore null and
void. The full opinion, as printed in
The Honolulu Republican, follows that
of Judge Lochren of the United States
District Court in all substantial details.
The prisoner was discharged
on narrow technical grounds relating
to indictment by a grand jury and
conviction by a jury of only nine persons:
but the court went boldly to the
bottom of the whole question, and its
opinion, though strictly obiter, is worth
"We cannot assent to the doctrine
that the operation of the Constitution
In the territories belonging to the
United States depends upon the will
or action of congress extending It
there. This doctrine necessarily car
ries with it the admission that what
one congress can give, the same or a
succeeding congress can take away,
that although congress, by the Organic
Act orglnlzlng the Territory of Hawaii,
extended the Constitution and
laws of the United States to this territory,
the next congress mlghT repeal
that part of the Organic Act, and that
then tho peoplo of this territory would
have none of the guarantees of life,
liberty and property provided In the
Constitution, and might thereafter be
governed as a province, a crown colo
ny or in any manner that congress in
Its wisdom, or unwisdom, might provide!
that a tariff might be levied on
the products of the islands going into
the States, and citizens of this territory
might be denied the rights and
privileges of citizens of the United
States residing in other parts of its
This, of course, is the decision of
only an inferior United States court,
and may be reversed by the supreme
court next month; but it is enough to
set shivers running down Republican
backs to have such doctrine urged by
McKinley's own judges.
I've got the earth to lire on
And the sun to give me light.
And the stars to guide my footsteps
When I journey forth at night.
There is atmosphere in plenty
When I need a breath of air
So I'm thankful for the little
That's remaining to my share.
I wagered my possessions
On the party that got beat;
But I greet the sun and starlight
And the earth beneath my feet
With a been appreciation.
I was lucky, It Js true.
That I couldn't make arrangements
To get rid of those things, too.
Can't Be Done.
From the Denver Republican.

al of the United States- minister and
the officers commanding the American
troops In Peking. George R.
has been prosecuting inquiries,
dictating terms and arranging Indemnities
In the villages around Tan
Tewksbury's report says his Inves
tigations "brought to light cruelties
of the most hellish and barbarous d-
scrlption, as practiced upon the nativo
converts in that neighborhood by the
Boxers. Some of the Christians and
all their relatives and connections
shared in whatever punishment was
meted out to one; some were buried
alive, others burned at the stake, and
still others were first saturated with
kerosene and then set on fire. A
Belgian Roman Catholic priest had
strips of flesh cut from his limbs and
the holes filled with kerosene, which
was then ignited.
Almost as horrifying a description,
also brought by the steamer Empress
of China today. Is given by the Rev.
C. J Tjader of tho Swedish Protestant
mission, of the murder of the Rev.
G. McConnell, Mrs. McConnell, their
baby boy, the Misses E. Buron and
S. A. King, the Rev. John Young. Mrs.
Young and a native servant. At Tsin
Kianan the little party, fleeing for
their lives, was overtaken by twenty
soldiers and a mob of coolies. The sol
diers hacked the missionaries .o
pieces with their swords, the women
being forced to look at the murder
and mutilation of the men and the
baby. The bodies were thrown on
the road and were still in the dust
seven days aften the murder.

Tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, will
be observed at St. Andrew's Cathedral
