It may bo well for tbo pcoplo to re
member that not even In his messago
docs the President assert what Con
gress will do.
Justlco Frenr makes tho public state
ment that tho Executive and Legisla
tive departments of Hawaii havo some
times gone astray, tho Judiciary never.
The island of Maul is largo enough
and progressive enough to warrcnt the
launching of a weekly paper. May suc
cess attend the efforts of Mr. Robert-
When tho newcomers nro tho most
earnest advocates of a liberal franchise.
It 111 becomes resident advocates of re
stricted franchise to express tho fear
that Hawallans will bo overridden by
The Bulletin hns no dealt o to bear
the market, but tho peoplo should re
member that the samo forces, whoso
work in Uic last Congress cnuscd Dele
gat o Kinney to suggest a Honolulu
publls meeting, nro stilt nt work nnd
havo been since tho last session.
A contemporary describing tho ban
quet tendered V. O. Smith, says, "Each
toast was drunk In champagne, tho
guests standing." Heio's nn evidence
of Hawaii's tomjiernnco in nil things.
At too many of tho Mainland banquets
someone goes under tne table.
Speaker Heed's successor In Congress
has given notice that he will support
tho expansion .policy ouUincd by the
President. Thus tho Speaker's former
private secretary finds himself obliged
to desert many of Reed's personal
opinions In order to fulfil his duty to
Tho public Is reminded that ex-Governor
black of New York Is still a fac
tor In politics, notwithstanding his loss
of, tho support of tho Republicans
for a second term. In tho recent elec
tions, tho Republicans carried tho city
of Troy the first time In thirty years, ex
Senator Murphy lending the fight
against JJIack who had headed the Re
publicans. It was in Troy that Black
gained his first prcstlgo nnd he seems
well on tho way to regain It.
Judge Wilcox's suggestion, that an
old fashioned spanking is tho best
thing for some of the troublcsomo boys
brought into his court, finds nn en
dorsement In tho notion of tho Police
Court Judgo of Newark, N. J. Flvo
boys caught 'Stealing from freight cars
woro brought beforo this Judge, who,
when assured of their guilt, sentenced
each to receive twelve lashes with a
policeman's belt. It Is said tbo youths
agreed to behave themselves In tho fu
turr, while their compatrlotls in devil
try havo manifested an uncontrolablo
desiro to bo good. More, than one boy
goes astray because be thinks It manly
to be lough, and confinement with crl
mlnals Is a mental corrective fraught
with questionable results.
If the Cullom Hllo letter, as set forth
In tho columns of tho Tribune, Is a cor
rect statement of Senator Cullom's per
wonal opinions nnd his published Inter
views are accurate outlines of what ho
intends to do in Congress, It is appar
ent that this staunch friend of Hawaii
is to lead in the courso which every
honest American should follow. Cen
ter overy iniluenco to secure prompt
enactment of Territorial government
for Hawaii. Wj feel confident in pro
dieting that Senator Cullom will not
offer ns an excuse for his action, past,
present or futuro, that ho has been mis
led or charge that tho Hawaiian situa
tion has been misrepresented to him.
If tho official circle will drop this fool
ish part of their campaign, Hawaii can
present n Bolid front beforo Congress.
NEWC0MBR8 AND IIAWAIIAN6.
In tho account of Mr. Dole's latest
publls remarks, tho following is pub
lished as a direct quotation:
"Tho Anglo-Saxons hero and their
foreign allies havo made the Hawallans

to them for confidence and help, As r
result tho Hawaiian community Is tho
most nchsinceil of all tho dark races In

from tho newcomer?
LIMIT TO THE BENEFIT MUNI
Of the various reforms suggested for
Improvement of conditions in Ameri
can cities, nono assumes greater proml-
uento nt the present tlmo than "muni
cipal ownership." As outlined by tho
enthusiasts nnd more than half believ
ed by tho pcoplo who stop to note tho
greed of corporations, tho nemo of
municipal blessedness will bo reached
when tho cities own their street light
ing system, strcctallwaysnd various
other enterprises In which tho taxpay
ers nro directly interested. Cities of
Great Britain where municipal owner
ship, under tho name of municipal
trading, has been extensively develop
ed, nro held up asjieacon lights mark
ing havens of taxpayer's Paradise ns
compared with corporation hound cit
ies of our own country.
The current number of Public Opin
ion publishes extracts from .in article,
by Robert P. Porter for tho New York
Times, In which It Is pointed out that
thcro Is a limit to tho benefits of muni
cipal ownership nnd tho cltlcc of Great
Hrltnln aro going beyond the limit. In
dividual effort in England Is character
ized as stifled by municipal Interfer
ence, "and unless n vigorous opposition
Is organized against theso encroach
ments of tho municipality, th national
consciousness will bo stilled in tbo
colls of tho hoa constrictor bureau
cracy as effectually as it has beon In
Germany. Tbo .facts In relation to this
Important movement (against muni
cipal trading) which only crystallized
a few months ago, will come as a sur
pilso to those In tho United Slates who
have accepted without question the
conclusion of enthusiastic writers or
half-baked economists In relation to
the achievements of municipal trading
lucrcaso of local Indebtedness and
consequent taxation is said by Porter
to be the lmmedlato caubo for alarm
nnd dissatisfaction among tho tnxpay-
From 1878 to 1897 tho local debt
of England and Wales moro than doub
led nud now stands at $1,210,000,000.
Moio than half of this represents en
terprises owned by tho municipalities,
"which may or may not bo worth the
original capital Invested." Electrical
oxperts state that if English authori
ties am to keep pace with the industry
they must spend 1500,000,000 whero
they havo now spent $5,000,000. Fur
thcrmore, in no less than iOt cases
"provisional orders" havo been grant
ed the municipalities for electric light
ing nnd nothing has been done. The
city pushes private industry nsldo but
docs nothing Itself.
Another result of municipal owner
ship Is tho association of tho munici
palities to prevent Individuals from en
tering tho field of competition. Thus
tho municipal town clerk, his contrac
tors and friends havo a complete mo
nopoly, They stand as a blockade' to
progress. Manchester and Glasgow
not content to manage tholr own tram
ways seek to reach out to ndjolnlng
districts. Theso cities glvo no guar
antee that tbo additional tramways will
be constructed, but contend that nono
shall bo constructed of which Man
chester and Glasgow do not approve
No less than seventy municipalities
aro applying to either parliament or
tho board of trade for tho right to
manufacture electrical fittings, thus
coming Into direct competition with
private enterprise. Tho taxpayer has
to pay tbo bills whothor tho business Is
a success or not. Tho city employes
like It, but It is death to tho outBldo
laborer, Nor is corruption lacking.
Candidates bid for office by promising
to pay higher wages to tho thousands
of city employes who havo a powerful
Tho results of municipal ownership
as set forth by Mr. Porter show that
the city can go as far In tho abuso of
power to tho detriment of tho people,
as can the soulless corporation.
