TUESDAY, NOVEMUKlt 22, 189S. The attack upon President Dole for liis remarks upon the liquor business was utterly uncalled for. President 3)olc's position as a temperance advo cate is well known and is unassailable and It is evident that the fanatical gentleman who attacked him was ut--terly unacquainted either with the President or witli the conditions ob taining here. Is lacking In his duty by retaining him. In a newspaper If any libel suit Is brought, It Is the head who Is respon sible and who receives punishment, the law takes no cognizance of subor dlnntes. And what is true of the news papers Is true of n government. There must be responsible heads or no large concerns could be carried on, and when men accept positions they must also accept the responsibilities con nected with them. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. "ft .rtt The medical men met last night and the consensus of opinion was that the typhoid fever in the military camps was brought here. Physician after physician gave his opinion and expe rience and all agreed that up to the arrival of the troops, typhoid was a very rare disease. It is an excellent thing to get expert opinion from men of such high character as our physi cians are, and will do much to coun teract exaggerated opinion published on the mainland. f The justice of The Star's strictures upon the second bridge up Nuuanu has been prpved now that the bridge is being pulled to pieces for repairs. There is a great deal of rotten tim ber and the stringers on both sides will have to be replaced. Prom the fixay the upper part, of the bridge is now beginning to sag, it was evident- " )y high time that something should be done, lint one would like to know why Jt was not done before. Attention has . been called to it by a cabinet minis ter, but it was put oil' and allowed to go in the happy-go-lucky style which characterizes r.'.ueli nf the work round ' "the Islands. A correspondent from Hawaii sug gested, a few days ago, that an agri cultural Mielety should be started and said it was high time that Hawaii fell into line with other states and terri tories. Tlie correspondent was quite correct in Ills remarks, and now that we have so many diversified industries such a society would be eminently use ful. Tlie subject is under serious con sideration and will bear fruit. The original agricultural society of the Islands was founded in 1850. In 1853 it must have been in a flourishing condition for prizes amounting to one thousand dollars were 'awarded, and it must, bo remembered that one thou sand dollars in 1853 had far greater purchasing power in these , Islands than it has in 1S0S. According to a publication of that date three days were devoted to the annual meeting and tlie show. The first day was devoted to rending re ports, choosing judges, etc.," and in the evening tlie annual address wns deliv ered. This was quite a grand function and all Honolulu turned out from the King downward. The second and third days were de voted to the show. The scope of the display, included all kinds of stock, poultry, dairy products, fruits, veget ables, field crops and flowers, a very fair display indeed. We are very npt to think that our predecessors have ever been behind us, but in this particular the Honolulu of over forty years ago was ahead of the Honolulu of today. It is to be hoped that next summer will see such a so ciety revived. THANKSGIVING STAlt HOYS. Tlie boys of The Star are looking forward to their annual treat and there is great excitement among them to know if everything will be as it was last year, and so it will be, even down to the tin horns. If a boy can jiot make a noise on a holiday why a holiday is not worth having, and it is one of tlie features of Thanksgiving to see tlie busses crowded with young sters, each tooting away for dear life. Poor little fellows, many of them get very little sunshine in their lives, anil they have to vork hard to help their parents and tlie rest of the fam ily along. Tlie doHnr or the half dol- jar, which nearly ,an earn daily, is very acceptable m helping out the -family rations and in buying clothes. Few people know how poorly off some of the families are and how necessary to them is the labor of the boys. The , law compels them to go to school, but the newspapers give them a job out of school hours at remunerative rates. ; Since last Saturday there has been a careful washing of shirts and a cleaning of shoes and brushing up of ' Sunday clothes, for the little icllows always do honor to the feast by ap pearing in their best. Fortunately The Star has been pros perous this year as it lias been in the ' past, and it trusts that for many years to come it may continue with like prosperity and also that for many years its staff may meet its little friends and fellow workers at their Thanksgiving feast.

We havo just received another shipment of those perfect THEN which admittedly have no superiors. They are here in all sizes, from the small one for the family of two, up to the large size suitable for hotels and boarding houses. There is one feature we desire to call particular attention to in the Alaska Refrigerator. It is lined with mineral wool and has an air chamber be tween this and the inside lining, thus insuring economy in the amount of ice required to Mich an extent that the saving in the cost of ice will, in a short time, pay for the refrigerator. THAT IS ECONOHY. For those who are satisfied with a less fancy receptical, but just as good, we have the ALASKA ICE CHEST in all sizes, from the very small to one that holds five hundred pounds of ice.

Which freely translated or par aphrased means tat a man is respon sible for the acts of his subordinates. It is on this account that ministers are attacked. No one for a moment Im agines that the Minister of Interior can look at every electric wire, but' he is responsible for the man who does, and it is Ills duty to see, that his man is capable. Again u nnm may have full oapaoity, and be honest and hard working, but may not have executive ability. If hejlacks that he is not fit ted to take clffifge of a section of pub. .lie work and a-better executive should be appointed, The Stur is not dealing with any particular bureau, but it contends that if a bureau Is lncfliciently equipp ed 1 and the equipment has not been .tasked for, the responsibility lies with the -Minister, as far aH the public is i concerned, and not with the hend of tlie bureau.
