THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1002. FROSTY AVBATHER. ""'This Is the statp oC matt; today he puts forth ' 'The tender leaves of hope, tomorrow blossoms, And bears his blushing honors thick upon him: Tho third day comes a Trost, a killing frost." Tho "tender leaves of hope" are pret ty well ripped and tho "killing frost" uf the third day has reached the polit ical career of AVilcox. Tho poet snya,."lt is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Not so the politician. After liavlug gained place and power, it Is Ball and worm-wo6d to, have both slip Ting away, and fo'kndw that another is being chosen to fill the place and to wield the power. ' ' AVlleox has defeat'ed"hlmse1f, for that ho will be defeated unless his oppo nents play an egre'gipusly foolish eame, goes without sayin'g. The policy f AVllcoxlsm was personal greed. It appealed to the worst sltte of human mature, strove by ltd' theories to de 3aunch tho minds' of Its 'constituents -and the voters at largtf, and dazzled .them with promises whfch it knew -perfectly well could nob 'be fulfilled'. There never was any true patriotism : in the policy of Wll'coxlsm. It talked glibly upon the point; but It was noth ing but hot air. It was a plant with- j out any root, and It dried up and with ered. ' ' Tho frost which 'has struck AVllcox lsm has been very noticeable' even be fore the attempted Knudl campaign. AVhen the Delegate arrived from AVash Ington ho at once sltrang 'upon tho plat form and began 'Id roar' against every one here. He apparently divided the Territory Into -those 'vho' were: the slaves of his will,1 and 'into those who were not. If the- first we're, subservient enough, they were aril right. Tliose who were opposed to him were "black hearted" and could be painted in every term that a vituperative tongue' could seize upon. But there was a . surprise , in store. The slaves of AVllcoxlsm would bo slaves no longer, they ventured to have an opinion of their own,,, and when it wns proposed to put all political power of the party into tho hands of two or three irresponsible men, there was a kick, the framing of a new constitution and a split, because Kalauokalanl and AVilcox promised one thing one day and did exactly the opposite the next. This was tar more significant than .many thought at, the .time. It was er roneous to think. that the Home Rule party was entirely -broken, it was not, but confidence In the leadership was broken. Not only was It broken among the bolters, but It was broken among those who remained' .within the pale. Mere windy rhetoric can no longer re store the confidence which has been lost. It has gono, and gone for ever. The Wllcox-Kalauokalant campaign on Kauai has shown this. Though the Delegate who seek re-election has re turned with a smiling face, ho knows in his inmost heart that ho has prac tically lost the Island , of, Kauai. In stead of meeting with enljuslasm he was met with apathy, and when the "usual windy promises wore made they were laughed to scorn. The forty-acre promise of the Kealla and Kapaa lands was not treated seriously by the listen ers. One of these pointed out that the same aggregation . had promised ten acres apiece to the Jlawajlana, and these had not materialized up to the present. The same feeling was ex pressed when public ' Improvements were talked over. Kalauokalanl point ed to the appropriations which had been voted by the Home Rulers, and a clear headed Hawaiian remarked that as to the appropriations the Senator was correct, but he had only supi.lled hot air to carry them out. The remark was In the vernacular and was ex pressed somewhat, mora coarsely. This all goes to show that there Is a reaction against the. present; Dele gate. He has ret.urh.ad. . so ompty handed, and his excuses for so doing are so threadbare, ,'hls "phey, or, lock of policy, has been so' weak that even his most devoted folloy.ers.see the bloom is off the peach, and' those who only followed in the;XUclo begin to won der why they folloWdd." A'll trds'fs the Delegate's own doing and It ip going to prove his undoing. In replacing the Delegate with a rep resentative and an able man, the great est care must be taken as to choice. The Republican party has the ball nearly In Its hands.' The dli'jy of the Delegates who will meet. in, September will be very onerous. Upon their vote will depend tho nomination of the can didate. If a good and a popular can didate Is chosen, there will- be no diffi culty Jn electing lilm, but if a mistake is mado it will bo as fatal (o the Ter ritory as it will be to the party There must be no mistake. 1 AVORLD'S COFFEE INSPECTS. ' The coffee season , 4S01TQ2 ..finished June 30 with Rio and .Santos receipts 15,430,000 bags, and, acordln to reli able advices, nulte a , largo, ,',qnaqtlty has been carried ov.ef ntqtj&het nejv crop. AVillet & Gray, the coffee ex pert, also state that there Is still a great deal Of coffee along the Soroco bana Railway which will take some time to move. The total of the crops outside of Rio und Santos for the crop year 1801-02 amount to about -1,300,000 bags, accord ing to Brudstreet's, to which should be added tho heavy supplies that have been kept back in the Interior of Arene zuehl and Colombia owing to the polit ical troubles. This coffee will come out in tho new season nnd swell the figure of the mild crops for 1001-02. Tho new Brazil crop now started will be watched with keen Interest. Late advices go to show that It will exceed in quantity the largest estimates yet made. The growing crop, 1903-01, is progressing most favorably. The new-crop year starts with the world's visible about 11,300,000 bags 4,500,000 bags larger than the same time last year to which must bo added the large private stocks held In New York unlicensed warehouses and by different large interior holders, so that consum ing markets are carrying an enormous surplus, even greater than the excess of last season's Rio and Santos mon ster crop compared with the previous one. Therefore, if the new current crop in Rio and Santos should only yield 13,000,000 bags, there is every probability that tho visible supply of July 1 next will be about the same as now, If not larger. In view of all the facts, coffee exports cannot see any good ground for an advance, but, on the other hand, tho overwhelming supplies, carried at heavy expense, foreshadow further declines, which Is certainly not very encouraging to the Hawaiian cof fee grower. Tho Hawaiian coffee can only be successful on account of Its high grade of coffee. If is a fancy priced article, If It can only be certain of a market, and tho market for fancy priced coffee is small. Ordinary grades will fetch very low prices. That we can grow ex cellent coffee was shown at the fair by the specimens displayed by Loulsson Brothers. That they can get a satis factory market has yet to be proved. ISSUES. There are two main Issues In the present campaign. There Is the Ter ritorial Issue and there is tho local is sue. Over the one there should be unity and a junction of the good ma terial of all parties. Over the other there Is bound to be a great deal of difference of opinion. The two Issues, however, should be kept distinct. The Territorial issue Is whether we shall have a representative In AVash lngton who will do us any good. AA'e have had one who has done us no good at all. In this every one who has the advancement of the Territory through federal assistance must take an Inter est. It Is our national Issue. Wo have had such poor representation in AVosh- ington that not a dollar has come to us for harbor improvements, for light houses or for federal buildings. Where other territories have had large sums voted, we have had nothing. This we must change, and we can all agree up on the change. N Upon our local affairs there Is much room for discussion. Methods of taxa tion, municipalities, the county bill, the amendment of many of our laws to suit changed conditions are all mat ters of great Importance locally. Up on these there is room for honest dif ference of opinion as to how they had better be carried out. Such bills re quire careful drawing and thorough discussion. To each and all of such measures The Star would give Its sup port, but they must be so constructed that they deserve support. Crude and undigested legislation will meet no support, simply because it is proposed under sliibboteth which means any thing or nothing. There is an active campaign ahead, and, well conducted it will lead to party victory, but far better than party vic tory it will lead to the ultimate good of the Territory as a whole, and to the advantage of the citizen, no matter what his stripe of politics may be. Tracy seems to be holding up the whole State or Oregon. He Is certain ly a remarkable Instance of what one man can do against an unorganized force. The lesson seems to be the old one taught by the proverb of "Too many cooks spoil the broth." A less force, completely in hand, might have captured Tracy long ago. The Marcus Island matter is likely to prove a national affair. It will not .be settled by a bloody battle between Capt. Rosehlll and the Japanese navy, but will be quietly discussed In the Department of State, and then the sub jects of Japan and the United States will have to do as they are told. All guano Island tenures nre very doubt ful Things are not so peaceful in the Philippines as they might be. The four teachers who were captured by ladrones, which Is the Spanish equiva lent of mbbers or brigands, have been murderad. This occurred on the Island of- Cebu. On the Island of Luzon a similar band has murdered half a doz en policemen. If American Inilmmce were withdrawn, there would be hun dreds of such bands and a perfect holo caust of crime throughout the group. The announcement of the death of John Mackay called forth more Inter est here yesterday than It would have done a year ago. Man is a selfish an!- ..SEEDS..
