Ex governor Frear was among those who appeared Ix'fore the committee on Pacific islands and Por to Hico, and, according' to the report from Hilo, which is probably based on a letter from Jack Desha, the fonner governor intimated that he favored allowing the voters of the territory, to regulate island liquor problems. It is said to be the prevailing opinion in Washington that the matter should be left to home rule. . This is slightly at variance with the correspondence of this paper from Washington, which is to the ef fect that Senator Shafroth, chairman of the com as the report of the committee is concerned. ! tnitfoa ii'tcfina rra, 4fm .lAnr rt r m T3nl . .e coming of the first white men, the arrival of . 1 A. .. & " n . . . ... , .'ham on the liquor question and that the governor missionaries with the resultant. annals of; ... . . lt4 , . . . & , . 1x1' i. - xi . will have virtually a determining: voice so far :01c effort in an isolatetl country, the era of . . .Ai . 0 T e whaling fleet, the revolutions, the republic, . e terri tory, -and the various subdivisions of ; criod and of industrial and social evolution :11 these in vivid human pictures, The possibilities are limitless.5 The proces- ion could be made large or small, elaborate or : imple the material is at hand for any degree of effort, V; v - - V There is no reason why such a pageant would interfere with the annual Hawaiian spectacle which in two years has won the right to be rec ognized as a fixture on the Carnival program. The Hawai iart spectacle ' is the development of Mime single striking episode in history, some tra dition or story that lends itself happily to repro duction in the form practically of pantomime. An historical pageant would not detract from the interest of the annual spectacle. . Such a pageant would need considerable ad vance preparation and if determined upon hhould be begun several, months before the Car-! nival.' It is suggested that the schoois of the territory should le given a prominent part in the preliminary work and in putting on the jKigeant for the great educational value to the school-children of such an undertaking. Let's hope some of the Democratic senators do make Hawaii a visit within a short time. They'll find that not all of us are equipped with horns and tail ; there are a few people who are not su gar barons and a lot of people whose livelihood and prosperity depend upon a decent measure of protection for the chief industry. v A commission has been appointed by Carmn za to investigate Benton's death. This looks like a plan to head off American inquiry as far as possible and is a comfortable way of disposing of the matter. - If that special committee over in Hawaii county can't agree to the import on the Hilo graft commission, there ought to be a committee to probe the committee named to probe the pro bers, ' The Star-Bulletin invites free and (rank discussion in this column on all legitimate subjects of current interest Communications are constantly re ceived to which no signature Is at tached.

What he says as to the ossibiltty of another insurrection is particularly interesting Ctlad to hear that the British press is now praising Mr. Wilson. This time his stand in volves a matter of dollars and cents instead merely of lives. Beady letter-writers should join the Demo eratic party, as its present membership is fast succumbing to writer's cramp. For half a million dollars Villa ought to be able to get Huerta, Diaz, Zapata, Orozco and a dozen or so others.
