A GREAT WORK FOR HAWAII
Boeretarv Fisher oIosm! Iiis hearings today
with a short infoi mal lalk to tlx' little audienee
in the senate eliainber that should have heen
beard by all Hawaii. It was the kind of talk
41iat brings about eloser und rstandinj; between
public ffieials and eitizons, more eooemtioij.
better govern moid.
The hearings close with the stateineiit on the
part of Attorney Ashford, for Delegate Kuhio,
that Mr. Fisher has done Ins work here in a
masterly manner, with an absolutely unbiased
attitude. IJoth sides to tlieso-ealled controversy
declaiH themselves satisfied 'with the investijja
t ion ax it has been made. 1
The STAU-Hruj-mN's Iwlie is that (iovernor
Flear will be recommended to President Taft
for reappointment, and this paper believes he
deserves to be. This 'paper believes also, how
ercrr that Secretary Fisher should aiul wilnv
orumend chans in the laws such as have hern
pointful out from time to time, for IHter trans
portation, for a public utility commission, for
assuring homesteaders that their cane will be
milled at a fair price, for many other things.
ToJ this paper Secretary KishexVf , attitude
seems plainly to point to a recommendation by
him' that (3ov. Frear be retained in. off ice and
that every effort be niade,, to-.bring, alijout moit
encouragement for homesteaders, both by legal
and by moral emphasis on the rights of the small
farmer and the average citizen.
; Withthis recommendation, if it is made, as
we believe it will be made, the Star-BuliIetiN
is heartily irt accord. Secretary Fisher's visit
has been of extreme importance to Hawaii. He
leaves witii tbe confidence of this community,
with a host of friends here made solely by his
straightforward, man-to-man fashion of conduct
ing his investigation, and bv his evident ability
to w eign ins evidence on Hemes oi lairness ro inc
big man and the small, to measure his ev idence
by the measure of progress for all the people.

smaller cards carry it strong argument ;

appears under the title, "See Amer-'

Unfortunately the limited means ofi
and distrust breeds suspicion, and suspicion
hatches a brood of sinister rumors and idle stor
ies. And then there's just the kind of a set-up
that, starts a row.
Secretary Fisher has the right kind of a rem
edy, and it's a remedy that is needed in Hawaii.
That reimdy is aggressive publicity in the af
fairs of government. Let the people know what
the public officials are doing. Taking thejmb
lic into his confidence is a step that no officer
of this territory will regret.
A HANDICAP TO SUFFRAGE
One of the reasons why equal suffrage in
England is progressing so much more slowly
than, in the United States is -revealed in aji inter
view given to the British press by Christaltel
Pankhurst, Miss Pankhurst is an exile from
England, a warrant having .been issued for -her
arrest after some particularly wanton acts of
yiojncejhyi fnUUaj)t suffragettes under her di
rection. Her interview shows plainly the tack
that suffragettes of her .type prefer to take. She
"I .suppose that the -suffragist movement 'sig
nifies the greatest change for human kind in
centuries! It is even greater than the emanci
pation of, the slaves, as it concerns one-half of
humanity. Its martyrs will be honored in the
writings and speeches of succeeding generations.
When I recall the growth of the movement from
the beginning it seems as though the climax were
at last drawing near. Things cannot continue
as at present. It is certain that the more women
are made to suffer the more others Avill come
forward to offer themselves on the altar of the
cause. The government itself is hastening
events bv inflicting sentences of five years at
enforced'labor. At this rate all the prisons will
soon be filled with women."
Filling the prisons' with . women who have
thrown hatchets at minisiersoi im- '"i

hardly coincide with the ideas of suffrage work
ers in America.
Secretary Fisher is not an ordained minister,
but he has preached some' pretty -powerful doc
trine since coming to Hawaii.
The secnitary dex'sn't do his preaching by the
didactic method. - He tells a funny story, with
the point sharp and sticking out quite plainly,
or he asks a question that flies straight from the
shoulder, or he merely suggests. But his ser
mons don't ' inissTireT
: Yestenlay he took publicity in the affairs of
government as his text, and he preached by ask
ing "about three questions, during the time that
Governor Frear was before him, in the com
fortable,chair that does diityvfor a witness stand
in the senate chamlier during these ''hearings.
The questions were all directed toward find
ing out what kind of publicity has been.giveii
the homestead ing operations of the territory,
and, in particular, what has letn the policy with
regard to advance notice of homestead lands
about to be opened up.
Mr. Fisher did not get answers such as would
assure him that every homestead has been
opened under conditions of absolute publicity,
publicity from the standpoint of the common!
everyday, average citizen who wants to wrest a
home for himself from Hawaii's jungles and
arid lands. He found that all legal require
ments have been complied with, (hat there has
, leen no apparent attempt to conceal any of the
.territory's affairs. Hut he did not. find evidence
