fore the legislators to be elected In No
vember. To accomplish this task In a
manner that will deal fairly with the
small hpuseholder as well as the heavy
financiers and wealthy corporation,
will require arduous wink and de
tailed study by. the best minds in the
Territory. The sixty days allotted to
the Legislature Is little enough time for
the mature consideration of this ques
tion nlone. Yet the Wllcpx party goes
before the people with the promise that
a portion of Its time will bo fx
pended in a wrangle with the Governor.
If Wilcox himself were Governor no
legislator, no legislative candidate
could afford to waste the people's tlmo
and the people's money over such n
trivial question as gubernatorial ap

And the majority of Hawal'ls people

The Democratic 10 to 1 policy mews
to the laboring man that the (10 ha re
ceives on Saturday night for his week's
labor is worth only $5 when ho comes
to pay his grocery bill and his land
lord for rent. No worklngman can af
ford to vote forcandldatcs upholding
such a policy.
Tho forthcoming convention of the
Independent party will bo watched
with deep interest by every clUzei.,
moro especially to note whether this
party will at tho last moment mc-t
mo issues at staKe on prejudice or
principle; whether It will be ruled by
tho personality of Wilcox as a boss or
eschew personalities nnd make its con
test on broad grounds with due regar 1
for the dignity and prestige of the Ter
ritory as a whole.
If Hero Hobson Intended that his In
terview on the destruction of Spanish
ships in Manila bay Bhould be a serious
reflection on Hero Dewey, he counted
without his host. Dewey was sent to
Manila to destroy the SpanUh fleet and
lie did It. The ways and means amount
to little provided the work was done
promptly und without loss of life. That
Spanish ships were put out of action In
such a way as to enable them being
ngaln brought Into use by the Amer
ican navy, so much the better.
With building operations going on
In several of the principal business
streets protection of tho sidewalks
ought to claim the attention of the au
thorities. There Is no good reason
why tho lino of the sidewalks shouli
be changed even temporarily for tho
bcnetlt of contractors. Every modern
city requires that the pedestrian shill
not bo forced to mako a detour Into the
street tho sidewalk being protected by
a properly raited platform from which
building operations can be carried -jii.
Honolulu ought not bo classed with
tho "Jay towns" In this regard.

RECORDING TELEPHONE COMPLAINTS.
A recent Issue of the Consular report
Bent out by the State Dcivrtment giver,
a brief description of V10 telephono-
graph, a recent Invention whM) thp
German l'ostmaster-Gcnernl Is Invstl
gating with a view to putting It In gen
eral use. The telcphonograoa Is a coir
blnatlon of a telephone and n p'nono
giaph, by means of which (1 telephone
mesigc may be recorded and repeated
with uccuracy at any time after it is
dellicied. lly this means raessjges can
be receUcd exactly as sent though t'w
person for whom It Is Intended may
be absent from his office at the time.
The great difficulty with proWous In
ventions of this kind has been In trans
ferring the message onto a wax cylin
der. Instead of n wax cylinder, In
ventor Paulsen uses a flexible sted
band In his phonograph .which Is slm
pier in construction than tho Edlsnn
phonograph. Messages are much more
easily removed from the steel band
than from the wax cylinder. It Is
wound on two spools, nvivliit? quickly
from one to the other, and coming in
contact with a very email electro-mg-net,
switched Into the circuit, ulilcli
affects tho steel band In such a way
as to record on it any sounds that may
penetrate, to tho phonn.tr.ipb. It Is enly
necessary to cause the steel bands to
repass the magnet hi order to have the
sounds repeated. Each vibration of
the electro-magnet produces a corres
ponding vibration of tho steel band
In order to remove a message from the
steel band, a magnet Is passed over the
aurfuco on which the message was re
llonolul uls deeply Intcrstpd in all
improvements made In the perfection
of telephone systems, provided the In
stallations of the Improvements docs
not make tho system less acceptable
than it was In the first place. Ab tho
company In charge of the telephone
system apparently falls to appreciate
that the public Is really serious In Its
Hon In the Honolulu telephone. It
would be an excellent Idea for them to
experiment with the telcphonograpi,
placing it where the various 'kicks'
that go over the wires would be r
corded. If n few of such records weie
reeled off at the meetings of the direc
torate or the Chamber of Commerce, it
ought to result in a better understand
ing nnd better telephones.
I.nglneers of the Copenhagen Tele
phone Company testing the Invention le
port surprising success, but make note
that up to the present songs arc re
corded better than snoken messages.
If necessory to accomplish better re
sults, the business men of Honolulu
will unquestionably bo ready to "t
their compluints to music, and Bin?

WIRDLC88 TELEGRAPH WORK.

In a recent article on "The Status of
Wireless Telegraphy" says:
A recent editorial Item in theae col
umns has called forth a letter whlen
appears elsewhere In the present Issue,
ns to what has been nctually done with
wireless telegraphy. Somo further data
Is furnished by a report of the recent
meeting In London of the Marconi In

Company, Ltd., nn offshoot of the Mai
conl Wireless Telegraph Company. The
chairman, .Major S. Flood Page, refer
red to the attempt to fix on their sys
tem a post olilco license, Jui ns had
been done In the case of the telephone,
and he said: The Marconi Company
could work In defiance of oil the post
office authorities In the world, who
could have no legitimate grounds for
Interference with the company's oper

company fitted their system onto a ship

a dozen stations without Interference
by tho Post Office so long as tho ship
was threo miles and a yard away from

Post Office nnd not with the ship. They
did not want to quarrel with the Post
Office, hut at the samo time they had
no Intention of being bullied. lib
thought he might be permitted to 13
'hat the Marconi Company had the
sympathy of some of the highest Gov
ernment officials In this matter. He
would give ,then one Instance of this
Post Office interference, which ho re
garded as simply monstrous. They had
entered Into an arrangement with tho
Southeastern & Chatham Railway Com
pany to obtain tho best Instruments
possible for comunlcatlon between
their ships and the shore, That com-
pany carried over 400,000 passengers a
year lu their ships, and had not lost
n single life since 18C3, and the dire:'
tors were alive to the valuo u' wlielccs
telegraphy. He had asked the mana
ger of tho railway why tlia matter-had
not proceeded, btu wiu mulde m dis
cover whether tho block lay with tho
French Post Office or with tho K-u'lslt
Post Office, or whether somp chutes of
tho Postal Union Convention prcventdd
their wot king. He held that It was
simply monstrous that English indus
tries should he hnmpered In this way
by tho bugbear of a government mo
nopoly .which, If It had !wn .ought,
would, ln had legal auc.ioriiy to suy,
huve no longer exists!. Io had one
good thing to tell them, which was that
the Marconi Wireless rdcgiuph Com
pany hnd entered Into o contract with
the Kngllsh navy, which, if success
fully carried out, would stamp the
Marconi system once and for nil, so
that no one could qimtina Its merits
nnd advantages. The c-in'.tact provid
ed that there should be thirty-two fdilps
or torpedo stations 'fixed up w.th tho
Marconi apparatus, nut they did not
know tho date when tltev would have
to commence their work. The work
they hail to carry out was n dltlicult
one. A shop was to bo fitted at Ports
mouth, and anothc- at Portland, and
these were to communi.ute one with
the other. It was a long dUtan-c, unr
there was a high range of hills be
tween tho two places. They had had
tho Marconi apparatus at Deligoa Day
on four of Her Majesty's ships for rev
eral weeks, and In no case had It fail
ed to give satisfaction The Portu
guese Government at Lrirenro Mar
ques were carrying out nn Installation,
nnd they were expwrmi; full details
dally. The system ha J never failed
whero It had been prop'rly carried out.
