The sudden illness of King Kd ward and the consequent postpone ment of the coronation is one of the most dramatic peaceful incidents that has occurred in the world's history. The illness of the King at any time would have startled the world. But coming as it did a bare day or so before the corona tion fete, brings the shock home to millions of hearts with trip hammer effect. The preparations for the" day in all their stupendous proportions were complete. Kmbassics from the ends of the earth were in the King's city. Representatives from the distant provinces of the empire were at the feet of their sovereign. Thousands of official visitors were awaiting the coronation splendors and thousands more who had trav eled far to be private spectators with common place historic events, still it pulsated with vigorous thought and commanded the un divided attention of all present. In the narrow limits of an hour Mr. Fitch touched with eloquent lan guage every vital point in America's history since the declaration of In dependence. He placed old ideas in new settings and drew with the consummate skill of the true orator, lessons of value at the present time, from the march of the past events he so skilfully reviewed. His speech abounded with the sunshine and wit of the optimist, who through many years of contact with the sordid and contentious world, still retains the magnetism the songs of liberty as they went down to the red death of battle in order that this republic might live live as a beacon of hope to the world, live as a heritage of liberty to man kind." He defines "the United States." "A link of human brotherhood eighty million times multiplied. "A splinter from an old-world yoke grown ahd fashioned into navies and cities." I "A wilderness of fishing pools and forests changed by the wand of ' free labor into a land of factories 'nnd farms." .

From the heart of the good Queen Alexandra, who on hearing the news, said: "Have I not ex pected this?" the fateful blow has passed to every heart in Christen dom. Tin; Hilo public and the visitors within our gates were amply satis fied with the celebration of the Fourth of July. The whole de monstration was well organized and faithfully carried out. Such a cele bration in the middle of the Pacific is indicative of a firm foot hold of American principles and sympa thies. Tins resignation of Judge A. S. Humphreys takes from the Hono lulu judiciary its most brilliant light. Setting personality aside it can be safely said that a judge with . a keener insight into the law than Judge Humphreys, will never grace the bench of the First Circuit of Hawaii. chivalry in the make up of Thomas Fitch that makes his utterances glow. This is his secret. It is his winning trait. It's his heart, more than his brain that makes him an eloquent man. Of the declaration of Independ ence and Thomas Jefferson he said: "The sentences of the declaration constituted a spell whose sorcery snoke a ncome into trcedom, a na What freedom does: "Freedom unfetters the energies, uplifts the I soul, and illumines the brains of her ' votaries.

I "From the principles of the Dec- tion into life, and a continent into j laratioii of Independence there has If the Honolulu bar cannot offer a proper successor for the place of Judge Humphreys, Hilo can. The local bar contains a number of lawyers who would grace with dis tinction the bench to be abandoned by Judge Humphreys. Tin; departure of C. F Richard son from this life was not only a personal bereavement to nearly everyone on this Island but it came as a shock to his wider circle of friends and acquaintances Hying on other islands. So long as the Pope insists on having control of the primary schools in the Philippines, there is no chance of a dicker between his Holiness and Uncle Sam over the Friar lands. Mr. Gi:i:k, representing the De partment of Public Works has a variety of responsibilities on his hands in all the work that is now being pushed in this district by the department. Tin; Merchants Fair at Honolu lu July 28 is still looming up in growing proportions of promise. The event will call to the Capitol City many people from all parts of the Islands. such mighty and beneficent develop ment as blessed humanity and amazed a world. Chief among the chieftans of that mighty band, out lined against the sky of history, the imposing figure of Thomas Jef .OLP'iyL jcrrersoii.was.aiii:n.iu pulse and by habit of thought, a hater of kings, and his spirit was eagle-winged in its searchings for the uppermost ether of liberty. The Declaration of Independence which he penned is a knitted chain of logic and a persuasive and pas sionate appeal. Kven at this day its sentences stir the blood like the blare of trumpets. It proves the government of George the Third to have been the most unconscionable of tyrannies. It state: the case of1 the colonists with a force of a de monstration in mathematics, and with the poetic beauty of a song of David. It is Mirabcau's ideal de finition of eloquence, "reason per meated and made hot with passion." It is at once the protocol and the epic of the revolution." This triumvirate accomplished the Revolution: "Thomas Jefferson, the political philosopher, George Washington, the soldier, and John Adams, the statesman and diplo mat, constitute the illustrious trium virate of American revolutionary history, and without the work of each the others might not have suc ceeded in creating, establishing and guiding the new nation. A spirit of popular self sacrifice sustained them: "Yet even the cou rage and the strategical genius of Washington might not have availed to establish the revolutionary cause, had it not been never since been a departure save in behalf of larger liberty." "This government is a republic where the race must be to the swift, and the battle to the strong. It is a government where equality of op , 1.., 11 tn mnuj .-. guaran teed, but where equality of result will never be enforced." "Wealth may control the making of laws, bttt it dare not attempt to become a tyrant to the individual." "The millionare may buy sena ators and judges, but he cannot oust the pauper from his place in line at the post office or the barber shop, or force any man to take off his hat, or deprive the driver of a mule cart of his right of way! The combined capital of Wall street could not force an hours work out of a tramp who prefers to lie upon the grass." "I,et the multi-millionarc ac cumulate so long as he can do so lawfully. There will be "no pockets in his shroud." He cannot take a dollar with him when he goes,, "And ull lie c.iii hold iu his dead, cold hand, Will he what he has jjlvon away." CALL FOR PRIMARIES.
