Apuinuldo Atkinson says that he has been slandered. The usual cry of the nation's traitors. As the fall campaiftn in the Philip pines opens out, it becomes appa rent tl at the war is soon to dwindle to an organized game of hide and seek. Not the least interesting feature to observers of international affairs will be to note how longEmperor William can keep good friends with every body . Taylor has unquestionably been elected Governor of Kentucky, but Goebel has another show for the governorship when his friends count the votes. Aside from the favorable bearing the recent elections have upon the policy of President Mc Kinley, they have also served a good purpose in relegating two notable corruptionists to the bad; ground. Both McLean of Ohio of Goebel of Ken tucky stand for '.the worst ele ment in American politics and the Democratic party. Though Brvan s principles are principles of calamity, lie is a man whose per sonal character cannot be question ed. Both McLean and Goebel threatened Bryan's ascendency ill his party and though the three will doubtless train together in the na tional campaign, the nation can congratulate Itself that the person ality of the leader is above re proach. HAWAII A tUG BUYER. The advance shtet of the United States Consular report of Nov. i publishes a report from Special Agent Stwall in which the imports to Hawaii fo. the first nine months of 1898 and 'qq are compared. This stattment shows that for the first nine months of 1898, our im ports from the United States, based on custom house values, was over 200 pi rcent larger than imports from all other countries. During the same period in 1899, Hawaii imported nearly 400 percent more from the United Stales than from all other countries. The total im ports for nine months of 1899 were $ 1 3,667,374.60 as against $7,360, 580.56 for the same period in '98, an increase of over $6,000,000. The statement also shows that dur ing the nine months of '99 ending with September, Hawaii's imports were 552,016,481.79 greater than the total for the twelve months of the previous year. These figures should demonstrate to the people of the mainlaind that the annexotion of Hawaii was by no means a bad financial measure. The day is not far distant when the Increased purchases of Hasvaii from t"ie mainland will more than repay the 84,000,000 of Hawaiian debts assumed by the United States. Furthermore this showing must indicate to the manufacturers of the United States, that any colonial scheme, with a special tariff sched ule, will simply result in the United States getting the short end of the bargain. With a countervaling duty on Its principal products, Ha waii would not be able to make purchases in American markets to tke amount of thirteen millions of dollars in nine months. PACTS ABOUT THE 8UKPLU6. Anticipation that Mr. Lansing as Minister of Finance would dispose of the surplus in order to show his contempt for the Government is a view of the situation that is entirely nesv. Up to the present time at least, tlie public lias been unanimous as nearly unanimous as the public can be is asserting fhat thet condition of the financial market, as well as the necessity for progress in public works, demanded a more liberal po licy in putting into circulation the large amount of coin lying idle in the government treasury Members of the Cabinet were not and are not, unless there has been a sudden change of front, unanimously oppos ed to placing these funds in circula tion. Minister Cooper has gone so far as to state that there is legal authority for placing a portion of the surplus at the disposal of the banks. It was only a short time ago that Minister Damon and pre sumably Minister King were the only members of the Executive op posed to inaugurating a more liberal financial policy. The sur plus was the indirect result.of Mr. Damon's remark to Mr. Dole, Who keeps Mr. Rowell in office Mr. Dole, but yourself." The majority of tlie bankers and the public are not disposed to accept the proposition to deposit the sur plus with the bank's. The people however do favor and demand that every dollar of the appropriations authorized by the Legislature for public wors shall be expended. Phis demand is not drastic, nor does it infer criticism of the Government, except as the officials assume a lackadazical attitude in securing its fulfillment. The marked industrial progress of the country since annexation has not only increased the call for activity in forwarding public works. It has taxed every administrative department of the government to the utmost. What was desirable yesterday is today an absolute ne cessity. The educational depart ment not only finds Itself short of funds, but retrenching when the sit uation calls for expansion. School rooms in Honolulu are crowded to the limit. Temporary desks crowd lie rooms, and children have been urned away for want of accommo lations. The number of teachers ind accommodation for pupils can lot be increased because of lack of funds, and yet the uublic treasury contains a two million doll.ir sur plus. The Attorney General's de partment is qnite as seriously hed ged in by the same lack of funds. With the condition in the education al department such that it has be come an object lesson in every home where there are school child ren, the people have yet to become convinced that the Council of State has not authority to make app o- priations to relieve the departments of embarrassment and assist them to keep in line with the new pro gressive step. If the constitution of the Republic gives the Council of .State authority to appropriate money for a trip to Washington of the President, the constitution should not at this time be interpreted with Kss liberality when a matter of quite as much im portance as an official trip receives consideration. Whatever opposition there may be to tile bxecutive calling upon tlie Council of State to render assis tance in the present financial straits, that opposition does not come from the people.
