Hours, MONDAY JIE H'ND It WW Sanoho PnuwVs venerable inn tonal parent whb ihade thd profound Tellectlon that the World wan divided tbelween those who have, and those who have not, and no doubt Suncho OPanza's marn'rtla' was not the first dis coverer of J1lb' re'condlte bit of philoso phy, and she, certainly Is not, will not lc the last- There Is ever a struggle "between tin? ' two classes those who 3iad In primeval times hnd the choicest hunting lands became the envied of those who wore only occasionally able "to capture a mammoth or a cave bear. Later those wht 'ha!d the best pasture Jands were Worried by those Who had not, still later' thbsc wlio had the most fertile Holds, and eveH Naboth's vine yard or Uriah's spoilse became objects of envy, while in,', very modern times we are perhaps no longer - obvious of hunting grounds, pastures, ileitis, vine yards or spotiscs, but concentrate our efforts upon political '.power. And In every country' on this round globe tho struggle for political supremacy goes on. 1 ' Thus we have in 'Greht Britain the Liberals and,' Conservatives, In Franco tho Republlqans, the .Legitimists, the Imperialists, in Belgium the .Liberals and tho Clericals, In Germany the Ag raricons 'and the Socialists, In Russia 'tho Tchin and the Nihilists, In Turkey tho young and the oli .Turks, In tho United States the, Republicans, and the Democrats, .and In our favored Terri tory a supply -of 'Hoik" ItUlers, Monarchists,-Ana'rc'hlsts, and all the ans, uts, ers and Ists that the world is blest or curst with. Each and every one of the' above come under the divisions -which Sancho Panza's maternal guide sketched out for him. Each either has tor has not. The one that has is satis fied that it isdolng,,it8 bet for the for tunes of the people, and tint which "has not is convinced that only the has Jiots can set . things, straight, and can bring true happiness into the world. This struggle has been going on through ail ..past history anil will go on through centuries more of it, until probably the Hon lies down with the lamb, and the cockatrice hatches out hen's eggs and the mlllenlun. of per fect peace shall have settled upon the globe. Sometimes the struggle is hon-' est, and it ,1s. between Liberals and -Conservatives and between Republi cans and Democrats, Principles rule these great parties, anrd there is not In the essence .thai; scramble for olllce among the leaders which jo disgraces minor poItlcs, , Sqmetlmes. the strug gle is dishonest, or jjo.wnrlgiit wicked as it is when .conducted by. Anarchists and Nihilists. Some times it is foolish,! some times It la wl?e. Some times it commands reject, som,e times it mer- its. contempt, some, tunes, it is broad minded and great,, some, time? it Is nar- row-minded, petty, pitiful. But it is always there, and the more petty it is, the more personal and selfish U Is, the more noise It ''manages to make. During the investigation made by the Committee of the Senate, an investiga tion which is still i;i progress, it has been interesting to nbte how these idio syncracies of the human mind come forth. The Have Nots and the Haves give certainly very different views up on the affairs of the Territory, and each has lts''specia1 remedied It Is most Interesting lo watch those who come forward t6 't'e'st'lfy. After getting through the broad classification of Mrs. Panza, which . is perhaps somewhat Saturday's holiday proved a' thorough success. The races were good, the day. was bright and everybody was tempted out. There has seldom been a more enjoyable day. .

At Hilo, tho Yeeeptldn df Prince Ku liio, tho Republican standard fearer, has been most 'satisfactory. The cam paign has begun- in earnest under the most favorable circumstances. The young Prince is listened to by large au diences, and oalls' forth the strongest enthusiasm.' The Prince appeals to the thoughtful side, of the, vqters',' He Is no mountebank like, his would-tbe rival Robert Wilcox."' 'He' doe's riot' have the people laugMlrig' at him, but he has them thinking with him whlbh Is far more to the purpose. , t Judge Robinson. of. the.

Tho classlltcatlon might bo divided Into tho useful and the worthless, the practical and tho Impractical, the ad vancing and the retrograde, the broad minded and tho mean, petty and re vengeful. What the Committee has come here for Is to get hold of facts. What It is treated to Is facts, plus a lot of comment upon current and past affairs, with a strong personal bias Between what the committee came for and what its individual members seek, there is again a difference, and this is an element the results of which we shall see later. The papers and petitions furnished by tho various commercial bodies be long essentially to tho useful class. They have asked for practical things They have shown the labor situation, and since the visit to Hilo, tho cbm mlttee seems to have thoroughly real Ized Its importance. Public works, such as light houses, harbor works, breakwater, Federal buildings, have been asked for both by Honolulu and Hilo commercial bodies. The coffee In dustry has had its strong aavocates, and tho arguments brought forward by the coffee growers, for protection are cogent and thoroughly in harmony with the commercial policy of the Re publican party. The unbiased sugges tion of revision of the land laws was useful. Calmly discussed, their full bearings understood, the possibilities realized, nothing could bo more satis factory than enquiry, and action later. Many minor things have also been touched upon, which can be settled either by Congress In an amendments to the Organic Act, or which we can attend to ourselves In our own legisla ture. On the other hand Individuals have come forward and have knocked away with their hammers at everything In sight. They belong to the true Have Nots. They would ruin the sugar plan tations because they do not own them. They would have no labor brought in. They do not care for coffee. They would revise the land laws, not on ac count of the people, but with the hope of Injuring some of those who have developed the Territorial resources and made It the wealthy spot that it is, and ilnally first, last and every time they curse the administration and all its works, and will only be satisfied If the running of the Territory is put nto their hands. To the former every attention will be paid, to the latter very little attention will be paid. The knocker is too well known under every form of government to have any great Iniluence. Looking at the matter dispassionately how small and worthless and mean do all tne petty charges appear. How use ful, valuable -and broad-minded the commercial suggestions are. The Unit ed States acquires her greatness by broad views, and wise commercial laws, which favor her advancement, the Territories of the United States will build up their commercial prosperity and their greatness by following the same lines. If we are to succeed we must drop pettiness and private spite, we must not attempt to chip away the solid columns which support tho struc ture of our well-being, and we must sink personality and attend to the duty of building up a state in mid-ocean which will be one of the fairest gems in Columbia's jewelled girdle. everything and everybody from the tariff to the Boer war, and from for eign policy to domestic administration, with the proviso that everything that a circuit judge says, thinks or does, has a peculiar Judicial sanctity. There certainly seems an immense amount of volcanic activity throughout the world. An Island has disappeared In the Gulf of Mexico, or rather a reef, for it was uninhibited. Pelee has brok en forth again, and the- north end of Martlnl.iue is now completely deserted. La Suffrlere in St. Vincent is scaring the population Into fits, and news comes from Italy that Vesuvius is stoking up, while the volcanoes of Mex ico are all reported as more or less active. The story that Stromboll is active is nothing new. It has been In a state of uctlvlty 'for three thousand years. An account of It can be-found in the Aeneid of Virgil while for cen turies It has been called the Light House of the Mediterranean. Ellinlnatr Ing Stromboll, ho.vover, there Is enough volcanic activity to frighten the ig norant, and to make theorists tremble for their theories The result will bu that we -shall know a good deal more about telluric forces than we do now. As to tevr for ourselves, as long as we have the yinte of Kllauea and Moku aweoweo there need be no fear. Be sides our volcanic forces trend south ward, and volcanic action does not, as a rule, double back. What might be looked for 19 submarine volcanic action to tho South of Hawaii and consequent earthquake waves breaking upon ths southern, eastern 'and western coasts of that Island.' t . .
