aXesson FROM JAPAN.
ApoloBiBts for the vile resort at
Iwllei have "pointed with pride" to the
Yoshiwara In Japan and cited the Japanese
system of police control of the
soda! evil as one Hawaii ought to
pattern auer. In fact the stockade
at' Iwilei is after the pattern of the
Japanese Yoshiwara and great stress
has been laid, by the defenders of thi3
foul blot on our fair city, upon the perfect
control Japan La3 of the social
evil and of the benefit to that country
by this exercise of police protection
and government control.
'Mrs. S. N. Castle, than whom there
is no more earnest Christian woman
and Christian worker anywhere, one
who devotes her time and her money
to the uplifting of mankind, sends 'is
the following from the Missionary Review
of the World, for February. 1901:
"MORAL REFORM IN JAPAN.
Thanks to the efforts of an
American missionary in Nagoya
by the name of Murphy, to the
Salvation Army, to the Hon. S.
Shimada, a Christian politician,
and to other Influential Japanese,
and, perhaps most of all to its
credit, be it added to the Japanese
press, there has been a tremendous
social agitation over
the question of licensed prostitution.
Dramatic results have
followed close upon the heels of
drastic measures. New police
regulations now make it possible
for the Inmates of houses of legalized
vice, hitherto hopeless slaves,
to leave at their option. Christian
reformers have freed at least
40 such unfortunates during the
past two months, and the papers
report that during the 42 days In
the one city of Tokyo. 429 contract
prostitutes voluntarily left
-their life of shame, and that suicide,
formerly very frequent
among this .class of women, has
Shall it continue to be said that the
Territory of Hawaii shows far less of
the Christian civilization of the Nineteenth
Century than semi-civilized
Japan In, its efforts to destroy legalized
vice? What a spectacle we afford
to our American neighbors that this
fair Torntory localizes vice and
throws tho protecting arm of the government
around it. Indeed it is time
for all tho moral and Christian senti
niont of the community to unite
against this evil.

To show how enormously high these
salaries are it is but necessary to compare
them with the salaries paid State
officials in the great State of Iowa-Iowa
has a population of 1.911.S96 according
to the last census while her
assessable wealth is more than seven
times that of Hawaii. Yet-the people
of Iowa do not believe it necessary
to pay State officials such enormous
salaries as are paid to Territorial officials'
In Hawaii. The salaries of State

JUDGE GEORGE D. GEAR.
The appointment of George D. Gear,
of the Honolulu bar, to fill the vacancy
in the office of Second Judgcof the
First Circuit created by the resignation
of the Hon. R. D. Silllman. will
be hailed with intense satisfaction by
all classes of citizens. Mr. Gear has
for the past five years occupied an enviable
position at the Hawaiian bar
as an earnest, diligent, able and honorable
practitioner. His record as a
lawyer, as-a man and as an enthusiastic
party worker is above reproach.
Judge Gear was endorsed for the high
and honorable position in which he
has been placed by the discriminating
judgment of the- President, by three-fourths
of the Honolulu bar and by a
majority of the solid, substantial business
men of the community, representing
its every interest and opinion of
party, although some of the corporate
interests were arrayed against him, as
were certain and lick
spittles of that small coterie headed
by Dole and driven by Thurston. That
Judge Gear's administration of justice
will be able, fearless and impartial
and that his judicial career will be a
distinguished one, goes without saying.
What with "special commissioner"
Haywood and "administration agent"
Brown in Washington we fail to see
why the Dole-Thurston crowd failed
to knock down that judgeship plum.
What were these two worthies doing
in Washington that they allowed It
to get away from them?
Salaries in all the public offices in
Hawaii are twice what they ought to
be. All salaries of public officials In
this Territory must come down.
Should Have Swept Him Out.
From the Maui News.
Imprimis, the lower house of the
legislature made entirely too much
fuss about Secretary Cooper. Instead
of Introducing a formal resolution ol
expulsion, Beckley should simplj
have aske tho house to instruct the
sergeant-at-arms to order the O'anito:
to sweep Mr. Cooper out and throw
him in the waste basket, as would
have been done In any legislature in
the States. Had it been necessarv for
Secretary Cooper to have a seat onj
the floor of the house in order to get
the "proceedings," common courtesy
should have prompted him to ar,k for
the privilege, which would doubtless
have been granted him. But whenever
an outsider claims as a right the
privilege of a seat on the floor of the
house, it at once becomes the duty
of the sergeant-at-arms to show .him
into tae lobby.
What Cooper Was Trying To Do.
From the Hilo Tribune.
It seems doubtful whether Cooper
had little sense enough to suppose
that he had any official business on
the floor of the House or whether he
had the nerve to try and make people
believe he had that little sense. It is
possible that the Legislature made
a big rumpus over what was practically
of little consequence; but it is quite
certain that the principle underlying
Cooper's action deserved the biggest
kind of a rumpus: for what Cooper
was trying to do was to perpetuate
the control of the Executive over the
Legislative branch of the Government
which prevailed under the so-called

good condition. The Bishop Home for
girls and helpless single women has
113 inmates The Sisters in charge
of the institution make a startling
statemeat in regard to th&. difficulties
besetting the operation of the home.
They said that the principal difficulty
they experienced was in preventing
the girls from being seduced away
from the home by the men of the Icr
er colony who live beyond the influence
of morality. Sister Marianne expressed
herself very forcibly on tne subject.
The Baldwin Home for boys and
helpless men was found to be In good
condition. There were 121 residents.
Brother Dutton who has devoted his
life to the work-of alleviating the suffering
of others was himself sick for
the first time In 16 years of service.
The late storm did a great deal of
damage to the trees and shrubberies
of the home, but the wonderful execu
tive power of Dutton has already done
much to repair the damage. Senator
Baldwin, the philanthropical founder
and supporter of the home, was a
member of the investigating committee
and showed his interest in the
splendid work of the home by making
arrangements for some additions to
the means of amusement for the inmates.
The leper reservation on Molokai is
a tprrible olace. Situated with the
waves of the Pacific on three sides
and the perpendicular cliffs of the towering
Pali on the other it includes
more physical misery than any spot of
like size in the world. Whether the
carelessness of the lepers is the result
of natural Indifference, as the result
of their affliction, or whether it is
"xsienatlon to their rate, cannot be
discovered from any Investigation.
All we know is that they seem haDpv
from a superficial standpoint and that
they say thev need food and that they
have a terrible way of appealing to
one with their eves while their tongues
shape words which do not fit the expression
of their faces.
T" fsti"ipnv takfn at the investigation
in regard to the conduct of the
Board of Health store, where the
pi"- tad. was astounding. They
'swore that the prices charged at the
store were twice and sometimes thrice
the usual prices for even better goods
in Honolulu. They swore that they
were suspicious of the way the books
of that institution were kept Thev
swore and it was admitted at the offices
of the Board of Health that the
profits from the settlement store was
S9.700 during the tfme covered in the
'last biennial report.
Think of that! 89,700 of the money
of the wards of the people. Wrung by
them from the taro swamps at fifty
cents a day Wrung from them by
the Board of Health without rhyme or
reason, and because of their dire necessities.
