WEDNESDAY APRIL 15, 1008 FREAR and appointments The inability of the Kepulillisui in centive committee t find lime to nt toml a meeting, hastily called to act upon appointments suddenly present ed! by the Governor, is not HkHy to have any serious effect on the admin istration or imy Terrltorl.il depart ment, anil the populace need there fore, have no apprehension of Imme diate disaster. The one unlMppy feature of Ooteinur Kronr's -itlltudo ns doH oped In his recent appointments Is not conllncil exclusively to tho Ko publlcan coinnillteo. Governor Krear, whllo not com mitting himself, allowed thu Impios slon to gain headway that his mind was open to suggestion on tin- mat tcr of tho appointment to the Prest tlency of the Hoard of Health.. One word from him to business or politi cal leaders thnt he was trying to work out n plun of wlurh he tould not Rlvo the details, would hue put a complete stop to tho whole bitter ngltntlon. Governor Frear did not utter that word. Ho allowed the belief to become general that lie was not adverse to, nnd therefore would bo helped by. tuggestlons from the peoplo. Those suggestions wero more "all ono way ' than has ever been the case. In any matter of appointment In recent years. This condition or nffnlra existed up to tho very hour ot tho appoint ment being made public. Then, when the facts of tho situa tion were made public, tlio peoplo found that the Governor Jind practi cally made up his mind before the agitation had really begun. Ills cablegram to Surgeon General W'jm.tn was dated the ninth of April, That was Thursday. The Governor had undoubtedly conierred with Dr. Cofcr and bad the plan well devel oped in bit mind previous to Mint date. Meanwhile the Ilu slanders ngalnst n man who has dono splendid servlco were continuing, and the community was deceived us to the Governor's opeu-mlndedncss. Such arc the facts. If there were necessity for decep tion whether It was Intended or not tho people' would, feel better satis fied that thoy had been dealt with In a manner which circumstances jus tified. Thero Is no reason why Dr. Cofcr mid Mr. Morgan should not have tho bcai ty endorsement of nil tho peoplo In tho Territory. Hut peoplo lately led up a blind alley will hesltato before the) entlniso over the "ntm-cominitt.il methods of dealing with public af fairs.' If Governor Krear had tho samo thing to do oor again, it Ih to bo hoped that his expcrlenco In this c.iso has been such as to cause him to work It out In a morn straightfor ward manner. There is no occasion for extended argument on tho mailer. Tho fails speak for themselves. foi several llrst-clusK funerals before H riiulil hope to get In the band wag on of pi ogress. As It Is. Hawaii may feel grateful that it can offset tho blighting Inlluenees that sometimes npeiato to bold back n town, with the enthusiasm and happy spirit ot Honolulu's v Sunny "Jim." PEARL HARBOR HAIL SUMY "JIM" , James S. McCandless, elected tu represent Aloha Templo nl the St. ran I assembly of Shrlners, Is occupy ing his Bparo time collecting prod ucts of tho Islands for display and distribution niuong his fellow Shrl ners. livery promotion Bchcmo that is ucd to Indelibly stump tho memory of Hawaii on tho minds of our fel low Americans seems tho best oicr, nnd McCandless Is in tho list. Wo associate Mr. McCandless with tho term "promotion Bcliemo" bo causo ho Is ono or tho best promotion bureaus this Territory has. Ho iep icbeuts n tpe or enthusiasm that may well bo set boforo the young nnd old with tho full assurance that they will do well lo copy. Hero Is it man who Is not afraid to boost for Hawaii early and often. Not only that, ho Invents schemes by which ho may do muro boosting than that which may fall In his pathway. He moves In tho sunny paths of Hie and tries to get others In line. A community with fifteen "Jim" McCnndlesses would not have to wnll There can be no doubt that tho American people have at last grasped the linportnnte of I'onrl Harbor. The unanimous Mito by which the nppropilatlon passed the House of Itepreseiitativcs is "im expression of enthusiasm which is merely nn echo of the newspapers or the country. We find the great newspapers pub lishing editorials that arc repetitions of what Hawaii has been preaching Tor the last generation, nnd tho Navy for two generations. A fair samplo Is found In (ho Chicago Dally News, which raj si "Strategically, therefore, I'carl Harbor Is of enormous value to the United States. It 'should be adequate ly fortified nnd fully equipped as a naval base. Money properly expend ed at tills point would serve to give the most effective protection to our entire western coast. Yet In the face ot this tact Congress thus far has failed to fortlty Pearl Harbor. Tho Committee on Naval Affairs, howev er, earnestly urges that $700,000. be appropriated nt onco to begin the construction of a dry dock, machine shop and marine storehouses nnd to dredge nn entrance chuunel ut this place.

Amid such general enthusiasm as Is seldom seen, nnd hns been paralleled In Congress at no time, perhaps, since the Spanish War, the Houso today passed the bill providing for the cre ation of a great naval base nt Pearl Harbor at a cost ot about $2,000,000. llotli Democrats and Republican! epoke In favor of tho hill, nnd when ll was put on Its passngo It was car- lied by a voto of 240 to 1, tho lone negative being cast .by Sherwood of Toledo, O , wlui Is reported to have explained that ho vjis a Christian ami did not bolievo in war, anyway There was general applause on tho Democratic side as well us tho Re publican when tho bill was passed.
