Editor Buckland is to be congratulated on the addition of a linotype to the equipment of the Hawaii Herald'. His enterprise is an evi dence that Hilo is growing. Machine typesetting .does not imply machine politics, but it will help Buckland in his fight for honest and efficient local government. Mr. Schwerin's boat did not show her red boot tops yesterday, but her shoe was in the mud.

The Mongolia is said to have had the heaviest cargo on arrival which was ever brought into the harbor. As 2500 tons of it was for Honolulu, it looks as if Mr. S'cinverin was really serious when he told our merchants that th" Pacific Mail wanted a. share of their traffic. If the company would only make an earnest effort to accommodate the Hawaiian passenger traffic, the demand for suspension of the coastwise law might be drop ped for want of occasion.
