In view of tho wanton outrngo
porpotrntpcl by a htickman Tues
day evoning, wrecking tho car
ringoa of t'uroo citizens, peoplo
mny bo pardoned for asking
whero wero tbo police. Tbero
are two back inspectors on tbo
force, wbose duty is partly to look
after carriages on occasion of
public and private assemblies.
Vhero wero tboy Monday ovon
ing? Speakinc of American wbite
labor on tbo plantations, tbo Ad
vertiser soys: "That tbo movo
mout can bo mado a success is be
yo id question. That it will be
mado n success is quite another
question." Tho planter iB no
bettor than average humanity and
doo not branch off into new
Bchsmes until ho has to. From the
way thiugs aro pointing now it
looks as if tho planter would havo
to mako white labor a BUCceEB or
Bome of tho plantations will bo
reduced to weed producers.
Neaily every instance whore the
open saloon has been experiment
ed with in the States it has proved
highly satisfactory, but the people
havo yet to bo enlightened on
what authority tho Cabinet goes
fthoiul and makes a ruling applica
bio to Honolulu. Tho mayors
and inarttbuls oE American cities
tha Governors and tho Presided
havo no right to make such rulings
unless specially directed by the
rarious legislative bodies whose
mandates they fulfill. TJnlesi
thoro is some law not yet brought
to notice, tho Cabinet bus no more
right to demand tho oponing ol
saloon doors than it has to specify
the kind of locks tbat shall be
used on tho doors of F6rt stroot
merchants. In the ond tho open
door will bo an advantage to all
parties sinco it will do away with
a class of barroom loafors tbat the
avorago saloon kcopor does not
care for. It is not so much the
ruling as the manner in which the
Cabinot has gone at it that creates
criticism. Tho fiction may bo
bonoficial in waking up tho peo
plo so that the next legislative
body will deal with tbo question
fairly and squarely.

In an attempt to prove its caso
our contemporary has shot off
iuto a voin of possibilities, by no
means probabilities, which wo do
not bolievo mombers of tho Con
stitutional Convention iutondod
should bo considered in tho inter
protation of tho section reforred
to. Thoro is just ono way to sottle
this question and tbat is carry it

contemporary started tbo discus
sion, and now it can win tbo pub
lio plauditB by spending a little
monoy in proving its caso before
tho court of Inst resort. Got out

and politically. Havo tbo courage

importance monoy is no object.
No littlo complaint has been
mado by proporty holders regard
ing tho sidowalks in tho nowly
developed rosidont districts. Many
of those raising objections show
an iguoranco of tho law. Section
373, of tho compiled Laws reads:
"After tho ostablisbmont of tho
grades of streets in Honolulu as
by law prescribed, tho Minister
may require tbo ownors of the
land adjoining any streot, the
grade of which has been establish
ed, to construct sidowalks in no
cordnnco with thu grado of the
street "and to comply with tho re
gulations rogardiug tbo material
and construction of such side
walks." "Wbero tho Interior departmont
has apparently given cauBO for
criticism id in being too lenient
with those- who aro slow in carry
iug out tbo sidowalk demands of
thepublic.Tbu following section of
tho law provides, if any owner
aftor recoiving notico to construct
a sidewalk shall refuse or neglect
to do tho work, tho department
may, after sixty days, go ahead
with the work and forco tbo pro
pirtv ownor to pay for it.
What tho properly ownor
anxious to have sidewalks neeib
to do is to braco up tho Interior
department in its attitude toward
his lens enthusiastic noighbor.
