Another advance step Is made In till
recognition of Labor Day ns a public
holiday In Hawaii. The responsibility
now falls to the laborers to make sue!)

placed among the days when the peo
ple throughout the Territory will recog
nlze the laboring men well worthy of
When a member of the Governor'
Council becomes special news agent for
a paper on which he Is employed ihc
people may well contlnc to discus
whether the council is organized to fur
ther personnl objects. The Superin
tendent of Public Instruction Is cet
tnlnly entitled to give out the Informa
tion of his department as he sees f.t,
but the newspapers of the city will
call n halt on carrying off documents
to which ho has aciess by virtue of his
official position In tho Council.
National Committeeman Sewall taken
the broad minded, practical view of the
local political situation that becomrs
his Important position In tho national
counsels of the party. Hawaii has a
national duty to perform both In up
holding tho hands of tho admlnlstn
tlon and securing proper representa
tion for the Hnwnllnn-American citi
zenship of the Territory. No man
combines tho political necessities of
present conditions with the wide uc
qunlntunce and good standing among
Congressmen and Senators to better
advantage than Hon. Samuel I'nrkH?.
It goes without saying that he will bo
the choice of tho Republican conven
tion, and his nomination will mean
TERM OF TUB DELBGATE.
The fact that Congressmen elected at
the forthcoming fall election do not
go Into office until March 4th, 1901,
raises an Interesting question In con
nection with Hawaii's Congressional
delegnte that will have to be unraveled
by the political managers of all par
ties. Hawaii -as a Territory has come Into
the Union In the midst of a Congres
sional term. Although the general na
tional election Is held November next,
the Congressmen elected will not take
their seats In Congress, until the ses
sion beginning tho first Monday of De
cember, 1901. Tho forthcoming Con
gressional session from December, 1900
to March 4, 1901 will be muue up of
Congressmen elected in 1898 for u teiin
of two years.
This places Hawaii In n very pecu
liar position. If ut tho general election
our delegate Is elected to till the unex
pired or "short term" fiom December
1900 to March 4th, 1001. Hawaii will
then have, no delegate for tho Congret:
Bionnl term beginning In 1901, provide I
the usual custom Is followed. On '.lie
other hand If our delegate Is elected for
the regular term opening In 1901, Ihc
Territory will be without representa
tion dutlng the session convening next
The Territorial law makes provision
for the election of a delegnto to Con
gress and while providing for special
elections to fill vacancies In the local
Legislature gives no Buch specified au
thority for our Congressslonal dele
gate. It Is certainly not the Intention
of Congress that Hawaii should be
without representation at any Con
gressional session, and It will devolvo
upon the people of Hawaii lo see to It
that the peculiar situation presented nt
this the original election of tho Terri
tory shall be properly tided over, Tim
term of tho delegate sent to Washing
ton next winter will exptro by limita
tion. Thus Hawaii has practically lo
provldo for representation for a tern
nnil a half. Under the Territorial law
It Is Impossible for the Governor tr
President to appoint nny person to tills

FROM ISLAND PRESS gl
Why tlllo WnntH It.
(I Ian nil Herald.)
Honolulu geemj t 0 hacking nway
at local politics with tne regularity of
clockwork. The press seems to be. di
vided on the subpect of local sclt-g&r-
I emment, and the probabilities are thul
the opponents of the measure will win
out. With everything IfutjioIrGwn
linmls and an active CoUrfcll bf'sUte
lo authorize the expenditures of mon-J
les, n body which has come Into exist
ence without warrant of law, the peo
ple of Honolulu have n specie of self
government that outsiders would bo
willing to travel miles to Bee. In Hon' -lulu
the defects are constantly before
the heads of the Government and a
button Is touched, and presto the sceno
chnnges, for Improvements are made
ns required. Here in Hllo the public
is without a Council of State and with
out a head of a department having au
thority to order repairs or Improve
ments made. Hllo citizens marvel at
the absence of the head or sub-head of
the Public Works Department during
the Investigation of wharf matters. It
is now nearly two years since a repre
sentative of the department has been
In Hllo and In the Interval one brMgo
and a tow path have been constructed
nt considerable cost to the Government,
What this Island needs Is local go em
inent and the need Is made stronger by
the npparent Indifference of the heads
of departments nt the Capital. Hllo
seldom nsks fur anything without re
ceiving the merry ha! hal from thio
who have the power to grant It.
Pious Plrnte "Pimh."
Honolulu Isn't pining for munU'pal
ovornmont, according to the organ of
the "push" by tho word "puih" here
we mean the amalgamated gang of
pious pirates who having swiped about
every thing worth having on the Isl
ands want to push everybody else off
for fear they might appropriate a few
of the crumbs. Wo should sny that l.i
the nature of things Honolulu wouldn't
want municipal government; Jhe can
get a great deal more without It than
with it (provided she works the Legis
lature right), and, at far less cxpemu
to herself. What's the use of suppos
ing yourself when you can pass aruund
the hat and take up a collection.
What About Delegate?
Whnt is going to b cdone about send
ing n delegate to Washington In rep
resent Hawaii at the next session of
Congress? Are we going to send W. O.
Smith, or Armstrong, or some other
member of the close corporation, or, jn
tho other hand, n man who cannot onlv
cut some Ice, but will cut It no' en
tirely In the Interest of tho Honolulu
freeze-out promoting company? Hl'o
wants at least a man there who will
not work against her, and nip in the
bud any project that may come up for
her advantage. It Is hard enjuji'.i to
get these things through with atslct
ancc. Mimt Have Fair Piny.
There Is a very Interesting moral at
tached to the story which the Uulletln
tells about the mutlhlnl luml.trnian
who has dared to com eto Honolulu lo
engage In business. Even In O.iklnud,
California, where this Identical lum
berman, only u few years since, estab
lished a lumber ynrd In the face of a
strongly organized combine, sum as 's
fighting him In Honolulu, the govern
ment would not have dared to enter the
fight to down him. Of course n benefi
cent despotism can do such things
where It may happen to benefit their in
corporated pockets to do so. but Ho
nolulu hns already becomo4too Ainerl;
can to permit such unfair play as w:is
shown to Mr. Heed, and the clunccs ure
that those government piles will be
lifted off that wharf by the hoisting
power of public opinion.
A Little NonncriHe Wanted.
Some sort of amusement or recrea
tion Is an absolute need of eveiy
healthy Individual and communlt".
IJven the wandering bear and trained
dog satisfy a certain well define J need
In the human mind and heart, if noth
ing more entertaining presents lUeif.
A circus, a panorama or even n ragtime
minstrel troupe brings a anodes of Ir
rigation to the mental tap roots of tl.o
Isolated community, which Inclines to
wither without some such awakening
occasionally. The young men ot Wal
luku should take advantage ol this
need for amusement, and Improvise
theatricals, dances, picnics and what
ever else will occasionally turn the
minds of the people In new cbnnurls
tor a few hours.
