Less than a couple of years ago, during the campaign of 1900, tho Democratic section of the press was filled with columns of scare head fctor les about the stnrvlng Porto Itlcans and the depression In Porto Ittco, all of which was attributed to the annexa tion of the Inland by the United Stntcs and the application of American laws The Fornker act continued alt Spanish laws In force until amended or repeal ed by the local legislative assembly Hut a little thing like the truth Is quickly turned nBtde by Deraociatlc campaigners, But the legal s)stem of Porto Itlco Is fast coming Into closo hnrmony vlth the general principles of law prevailing In the United States. And what Is the result? Mr L S Itowe, chairman of the law and revision com mlsBlon of Porto Itlco, sn)s that the feeling of buo)nncy now prevnlent In Porto Itlco stands In marked contrast with the depression of two )enrs ago This Is due to the adaptation of Amcr Iran methods and the abandonment of the Spanish s)stem of government Mr Howe adds, and this Is a point worthy of consideration In Hawaii, "both political patties have come to the support or the administration nnd the lenders pledged support to the Governor In their efforts for tho ad vancement of the common Interests of the Island " Here Is n case where both political parties have thrown aside their differ ences for the common weal of their common Island home If tho Porto Rlcans can set us this example, how much easier It should be for the two factions of one political party to come together hero for the advancement of the common Interests of this gioup of Islands which Is n Territory of the United States and should be teaching, not learning from, Porto Hlco Most Interesting In this connection Is tho fact that the reeling of buoy ancy which now prevails throughout Porto Hlco Is due to the Improvement of the credit of the municipalities, as shown In the San Juan lonn There Is no question of Territorial administra tion In Porto Hlco It Is purely a ques tlon of good municipal government, bated upon a sound American system of legislation. The floating of this San Juan loan, we nre told, "will enable the cities and towns to undertake much needed Improvements In drainage, wa ter supply and sanitation' It Is held by Borne that tho floating of n Tcrrl torlal loan at this Juncture would hardly show such an "Improvement In the credit" of Hawaii as was evinced In the ense or the San Juan loan Hut give us the municipalities nnd let the cities nnd towns have tho local gov ernment, Tor which they are so anx ious. In ordei to secure "much needed Improvements In drnlnnge, water sup ply and sanitation," and the first lonn or Hawaii can be replaced, In less than two )ears, by a new Ishiio or bonds that would show much Improvement In our ciedlt nnd effect considerable saving to tho taxpa)ers Try it.

The valuable, article on parks and playgrounuB contributed by Dlr-ctor Jared Smith of tho Federal Experl mont Station Is one of a scries of dls cusslons and suggestions for clt) Im piovcment that It Is Intended to pro sent from tlmu to time Lnst week a brief summary was given by Jas H.

It has tho wealth nnd the material to work with What It lacks Is enthusiastic civic pride and the energy to go ahead. With a lew to securing an exchango of opinion and voicing the sentiment for city Im provement The llullctln will publish articles from various citizens taking an Interest In a more progressiva de velopment It Is hoped and believed that thu public attention thus called to the capabilities of the town will aid materially in crystallizing public sen timent In n manner that will result In nctlon on broad and well defined lines of progress. THE MUNSDY NBW8PAPUR. When Frank A Munsey. the revolu tionlzer of magazlno publications, started Into the newspaper field by tho purchase of tho Dally Nowb of New York and the Washington Times, thero was much speculation among publish ers and renders as to what ho would do Munsey's career as a magazlno publisher proved him to be a man of ideas. His magazines are by no means jellow In tho Hcarstonlan sense, but they Bcrved to upset tho old fashioned Ideas as thoroughly as Hearst has in the newspaper field Hence It was that the question n-oso whether Munsey, ns n newspaper own er would start In to out-Hearst Hearst, strike n happy medium, or blaze an entirely new pathway ror making a newspaper popular and a force In the great centers of tho country. In both Washington nnd New York tho iiowb paper field Is well supplied and com petition of the fiercest kind faced the new candidate for honors. Ho is conducting the papers as a business proposition, spending mone) ho has earned by his own effort, nnd nuking Ho nsslstnnce rrom corporations or politicians. Results thus rnr indicate that Mouse) still preserves his Individual ity. Ills newspapers are Intensely local, without, however, slighting tno general news or the world to such n marked degree as Hie "jcllows." of which the World and Journal aro t)pes News Is plajed up with liberal uso or headlines and illustrations, but there Is no tendent) to pander to tho depraved taste for scandalous sensa tlons. Munse) refrained from extensive an nouncemciits until lately when a sign ed edlloilal appealed Jn the Washing ton Times Tills will be read with In terest by all those who follow tho development of the American new spa per and gauge popular tendencies by tho manner In which successful pub lishcrs size up what the people wnnt Munsey lev lews problems which nro presented to ever) newspaper publish er ns follows. "Beginning tomorrow morning tho price or the Sunday Times will be nil vanccd to five (5) cents n cop), nnd beginning Mondn) morning tho pi ice oi the Morning Times will be advanc ed to two (2) cents a cop).

Tho city of Washington, D C. which practical!) means tho District of Col' umbln Is preparing to turn out In force to give n rousing welcome to ox Gover nor Alexander it. shepherd. This man Shephcid was thirty iears ago heralded In tho most malldouB words that "good government" forces could pen ob "Boss Shepherd " And thereby hangs nn Interesting tnlo re plete with lessons nnd worthy of con templntlon by honest citizens who bo- lirve their wny is the only way. Mr Shepherd was Governor of tho District or Columbia when that Bectlon jf our country was under n Territorial form of government Shepherd was a man or nctlon. He did thlnas. tie believed the capital city or the nation should bo ns near Ideal In tho laying jut or streets, parks and public grounds ns possible, and that the American capital should be second to none In the world. hen Shepherd assumed ofilco Washington was as far rrom being nn Ideal city as It could be It was a sea clT mud, a good deal like a second Chinatown Its neonle theorlri on what should be done. They did noth. Ing. Shepherd was set upon going ahead. progressing, building up the city and making It beautiful No sooner did ho begin actual, rorceful work, than ho became tho object of the most malic ious attack any public officer has ever been subjected to. As one paper puts It, he was subjected to a "storm or petty protests, reverberating bill Ingsgate nnd a chorus or utilitarian voices." Hut Shepherd forKeel ahead He worked with what he had He met the utilitarian cr) by a renewnl or en ergy and n more steadfast determina tion to enrry out his broad intnaed designs Ho was charged with being corrupt and or epitomizing nil the evil roices to be round In American covern- ment. He was written up nnd down the country as a "Hoss " But Shep herd still forged ahead. Ho was charged with saddling tax- pa) ers and the Federal Government with unnecessary burdens or taxation Still Shepherd ringed ahead. A movement waB made In Congress to remove tho capital to a western city Shepherd rought tho proposition nnd conqueied He secured tho friend ship of President Grant, which nt that time was supposed to reflect no credit on Grant He Interested Northern capitalists in District bonds. Ho se cured nppioprlatlons from Congress to tho extent or about J25.OUO.000 for beautlf)lng the city and snent the greater part or his own private fortune ror the same purpose and for fighting his enemies. All these things were nt the time cited as evidence of "Boss" Shepherd's corrupt methods nnd "Hosb" Shep herds corrupt government. Tho Btorm raised about Shepherd's head resulted In a Congressional Investlira. tlon, a change to the present form of government and "Boss" Shepherd wnB practically run out of town, out of tho country Indeed, for ho went to tho .Mexican mines to retrieve his fallen fortune. But tho work Shepherd started went on. The beautiful avenues, parks and public giounds he planned remained. The tiees with which lie lined tho streets of tho city did not stop grow Ing. Time worKed out tho problem and slowly but surely the people camo to appreciate their own short slchtcd ncss and tho wisdom nnd foresight of Shepherd Somo )ears ago this much maligned man who had been ruined financially, visited Washington, and tho leading citizens of tho town seem ed unable to find words with which to express theli profound eratltmln for what he had done. Ho Ib to pay mo city nnotlier visit and the citizens aie planning to oxtend to him such a welcome ns is due the man who "lifted Washington City out of tho mud. ' What has this to do with Hawaii and the city of Honolulu? It merely shows that t.,e men who shout "corruption" tho loudest, tho men who deramo others who would forge ahead In. spite of difficulties are often times the most short sighted and are Indeed tho enemies of that "good government" which seekB an energetic present and a prosperous and peaceful tuture, Honolulu and the Territory aro to day lolling In tho doldrums of nrartl caj retrogression for no other reason than that those officials who can act and those whose province and duty It la to move forward refuse to do to. "Good government" never was and never will bo accomplished by such means. Hawaii would be fortunate to day If It had a "Boss" Shepherd at the head of affairs. Its people would be better contented. Its local entcrm-lses and Its business interests better serv ed and the citizens of the future would look back with more satisfac tion Upon tile work of the founders nf tho Territory. Hawaii needs progressive force. readiness to grapple with problems and solve them by action, not passing them on to a future occasion by block ading every wheel of governmental movement.
