Why doesn't tho Advertiser deal
with Chief Justice Frcar's bill to niter
the terms of the Supiemc Court?
If the Governor hns the power to
sign bills ufter the Legislature is ad
join ncd certainly the pure food bill U
nf as much Importance as Chief Jus
tice Krear's law to change tho Supreme
Court terms. Thero cannot possibly
lie any politics connected with tho
bill dealing with adulterated foods
which Mr. Shurcy stnted yesterday
had failed to receive tho Governor's
blgnnture. The only opposition to It
will come from the milk man with i
handy pump nnd that's tho gentleman
tho people want to get nt.
The bill collecting episode that ni
tended Delegate vYJirox'i departure re
flects credit on no one but the mcu In
loutrol of tho police department. Thf-re
may have been shysters In town wha
rlldr.'t know tho Delegato was S''n6
Tny nnd thereby were unable to hervo
pnport. on him at his usual place of
re'idcnce, but It Is so apparent that tho
affair was planned with a view to inafco
tho Delegate's departure unpleasant
thnt no fair minded mm tan nllow tit!
dlsappioval of Wilcox's personality or
public attitude to overcome his npprccl
tlon of common courtesy and decency
Wilcox Is tlio Congressional Delegate
of Haw all and whether he tries to evade
creditors or not ho Is not going to skip
the country or get beyond tho ranso
of any persons who want to bring suit
against hlpi. The HullPtln knows ana
can prove by wltnfsses that the rep
irsentntlve of one collecting agency
stated a full six houis before thn
steamer sailed thnt "Wilcox would be
Mopped." There was plenty of time j
tn servo summons on Wllox Lnfori!
h!s arrival at the steamer. CollertoiR
1-ail r right to do what was don?, but
thi) people of the city recngnixu Ihit
thue is such n thing as common doccu !
l,v in collecting blllu.
Tho memorial to Prejldent McKlnley
ptejinred by Republican members of
the Legislature and some members of
tho Territorial committee Is In many i
respects a two edged sword In It s 1
bearing on tho Governor. Curiously i
enough tho Republicans, havo brought
out tho pith ot the Homo Hulc charge,
ncvnlnut tlin flnvprnnl nnn,plv 'triflt
majority ot the legislators came to
their duties prejudiced against the
Governor on his record for the previous
seven years.' This Is to nil Intents
ami purposes the position taken by
those Republicans referred to In tho
expression: "Among them are mem
bers of the party who, during the cam
paign and slnco have differed from tho
Governor upon matters affecting pnity
policy." The Republicans, who differed
with the Governor, held thnt legisla
tors would conio to their duties pre
judiced against tho Governor. Then
tho memorial goes on to 3tate that tho
Governor has come to time and Is In
harmony with tho party. All thll
leaves a renewed opening for attack.
Tho memorial Is Indeed a plain
statement of fact. Tho mnjorlty Homo
Rule party Is unnucitlonably responsi
ble for tho delays In legislation dur
ing the early pait of tho session; If tho
fcxt ot the County bill Is In thn condi
tion It In asserted to be no Governor
would bo Justified In signing It: the
Homo Rulo resolution contains no more
specific charge than thil members
wern prejudiced against tho Governor
and he In turn Is prejudiced; tho Homo
Rulers refuse to i;o ahead wlf' Dnln
In offiee and the Governor acting upon
tho advice of rtepubllcnn members of
tho Leglshturo refuted to allow them
to take as mudi tlmo im they wanted
Comparing the two documents the
Republican memorial cxpi esses less
forco and enthusiasm of utterance than
tho Home Rule resolution. Tho en
(lorscment of the Governor 1$ negative
rntlicr than positive. Had the Itcpub
Hcans closed tnclr mcmoilal wltn a
straightforward request (hat Governor
Dole ho retained In otllce, they certain
ly would have added positive strength
to their petition.
Tho forco or effect In Washington
.of either tho resolution or memorial Is
decidedly doubtful. Tho Federal gov
ernment has little tlmo for petty de
tails. It views tho situation by results.
This Is the view taken by tho Ameri
can people It Is' tho view taken by thn
pcoplo of Hawaii. The Bulletin bo
lleves tho Republicans would have bet
ter met tho wishes of thn people by ae
reptlng an extension of tho session
rather than stopping to squabble over
the Governor or Home Rulo method
nnd mistakes. Uy such n program It
would havo been Impossible to load
responsibility for- failure to pass Im
portnnt laws upon any other party than
tho majority party.
Tho past Is gouo, Tho pcoplo now
clamor nnd rightly clamor for re
sults, progressive results. The Legis
lature Is called upon to appropriate
funds when sufficient funds are not in
sight. There may be some way ot
whipping tho dovll around tho stump
and tncklng n provision for a bond Is
sue on tho end of tho Appropriation
bill. If this can bo dono In such a
manner that tho bonds will bo saleable,
well and good. A measuro thnt sug
gests any question as to tho legality of
tho bonds will bo worse than useless.
Rather than ptoduce such measures It
would be far better to cnll an extra
session, for bo It known to executive,
ofjlccis of tho Territory and legislators
of alf parties, that tho people of this
Territory will not .view with com-
nl.leence the tvlncr nn nf ntihltn work
' ' " ""'"I
and efllclcnt administration for two
years In order that political advantage
shall thereby be gained to any Indi
vidual or nny party.
Tho Tennessee Legislature has been
treated to a bribery Incident that has
many Biiggcetlve features worthy con
sideration by our ou,c!tlns Jn vlw
of the charge of bribery lodged against
tho Legislature by the Oovornor.
A State senator of Tennesseo rising
to n question of prlvlWo Informed hit
associates that ho had been threatened
with suit on a chock cashed by him
for another but which proved worth
less, tie had been promised by a for
mcr state officer thnt his vote "tho
right way" on n certain bill would
assure withdrawal of the suit and an
addition to his private purse of S"0o.
Should he refuse to ote "the right
way" his appearance In court would
be demanded thus preventlng'hlm ftonr
votlng or arguing on the bill.
The Tennessee Legislature promptly
responded to the senator's request for
The suggestion pertinent to n'e local
situation Is that bribery does not con
sist alone In offering or tnklng money.
Let the Grand Jury In Its Investigation
make an endeavor to discover wheth
er any legislators have ben approach'
ed on mortgages, notes or bills payable
ot any character with a view to In
fluencing dlreetlv or Indtl-ei'tlv. t vole
on public measures. Has there sen
nny urgent pressing of financial
claims resulting from the support ot
antagonism of nny measures?
Tho Nnshvlllo American comment
on the Tennessee affair as follows:
"The matter should bo sifted to the
bottom. Let the public know the
truth. We should hate to have to he
forced to believe In tho ungoodness of
nny of tho gentlemen concerned, al
ways having had the utmost faith and
confidence In them nnd humanity gen
erally, but If anybody t.ns offered any
body a bribe we deslro to know It nnd
If anybody has refused u bribe we de
sire to know that also. Let not base
rumor he sufficient to give life to sus
picion, but when opn charges of bold
attempts nt bribery ure made by one
honorable gentleman against another
honorable gentleman, what Is one to
think? Let Judgment be suspended un
til the pioof Is taken and tho evidence
summed up. In the meantime let us
all remain ns cool and uncxclted as
Thus In Tennesseo nnd ever' other
poitlon of tho StitCB and Territories,
the ch uge of brlbeiv mtn'tiu a legis
lative body presuppoes Immediate en
deavor tn prove or disprove. Such Is
the sentiment of tho honorable clttzeni
Y. M. C. aTImTiLANTiIROPY.
Members ot the Y. M. C. A. who havo
In contemplation tho erection ot a
much needed building should turn tn
the recent experience of tho Cleveland.
Ohio, Association nnd take new cour
age. The Cleveland Association had .1
debt of ?lll.aS2.11 on Its hands. With
in thhty days the debt was cleared
and tho treasury boasted of $7.10 sur
plus. Tho amount that had to be rais
ed was $S3,000. of this amount 108,
000 was contributed by four persons
onn of whom was John D. Rockefeller.
Honolulu has no John D. Rockefel
ler, but the Honolulu Y. M. C. A. has
no bundled thousand dollar debt. Ac
cording to the slzo of the town nnd the
money needed to successfully nnd
properly developo Y. M, C. A. work.
Honolulu hns ns many philanthropic
citizens and as many earnest workers
among tho buslnetH men as Cleveland.
Ohio, or nny other American city.
Theic Is no Institution 'more worthy
nf assistance than the "V- M. C. A. Lot
tho philanthropists nnd tho workers
move forward to give the Association
what It deserves.
