GEN. FUNSTON'S PROMOTION.
It is not an unreasonable complaint tha
comes from the National Guard armory tha
conditions there are such as to discourage at
tendance and interest in the territorial militia
The last legislature appropriated all the money
that could be spared for the construction of the
new armory, leaving little for interior furnish
ing and equipment. While conditions now are
not such as to constitute hardships, there are
few epmforts and facilities, and it is difficult
to keep up attendance in the guard when the
'Hawaii has more than a passing interest in
the promotion of "Fighting Fred" Funston to
the rank of major-general.
The people of this territory have seen and
known. the man and admired his personality . ordinary conveniences for changing uniforms
ana jus acnievemems. ouiue oi iuu u, and street clothes, bathing, etc., are absent.
wit- ume uc m.u,uiru .v. .... jt win not take a t defll of monev t0
forces, here, that he was developing' some ex- make the armory what Jt is intended to be-
- c-i 1
knew or: know now Jiow far-reaching those
plans may be.
Funston, to the layman's mind, types the
army officer who "does things," and does them
with the minimum of hubbub and the maximum
of efficiency. And his promotion after a period
HO,6ng that the situation gave rise to unfair
able criticism of Washington, will be acclaimed
in Hawaii as1 particularly well deserved.
He" has been a senior brigadier-general for.
ncirly eight years and has :held the rank , of
rV 1 K rflOM nrtiintlllff Ilia RprVlfA nS
brigadier-general 6f the volunteers.; For about
13 years he has ranked as brigadier in the regu
lar, army.v. ; . ''..'' ;
Ifis . military career has been conspicuously
distinguished. In the popular mind, of course,
the capture of Aguinaldo takes precedence as
his most startling exploit, tut he Has others as
fine or finer, to his credit, including the hand
ling of jhe San' Francisco situation after the
earthquake and fire in 1906V 'And the service

conducted themselves with such dign
suitable for a gathering-place for the young
men of the city as well as for military purposes.
Just now it is not even completely suitable for
the latter.
The campaign in support of the National
Guard was made largely on the argument that
membership in the guard, with its privileges
for use of the armory, ' would be a splendid
asset for the young citizenship of the commun
ity. The armory was to be made into a combi
nation club-house and drill-hall. The idea is
as good as it ever was, but without furnishings
the club-house feature is futile.
In advance of the meeting of the legislature,
a detailed statement is in' order from the guard
authoritiesshowing exactly what is heeded and
giving a competent-estimate of the appropria
tion.that should be made.

PROBABLY THE CENSORSHIP.
Confirmation by mail of a vague rumor that
c ine i many days ago by cable, that Ithe British
