February It! is an era notable in fraternal societies, ns Uio birthday anniversary of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. The Order was the outcome of a happy inspiration of the noted ballad Ringer, Charles Algernon Sidney Vivian, who gathered around him in New York, in 1803, a few kindred artistic spirits into a local social organization which at first confined to members of the theatrical and musical profes sions, extended next to the journalistic fraternity, and has now expand ed into a grand benevolent order whose doors are opfn to all lovers of humanity, to all Good Samaritans, to all who are willing to recognize the Brotherhood of Man by aiding the suffering, nursing the sick, bury ing the dead and ministering to the necessities of the needy. When the demand for membership became so great as to compel the enlargement of the scope and purposes of the little original society, the title of Elks was adopted, February lfi, 1S08 a title distinctly American, as is also the Order, whose members hip and lodges are confined exclu sively to the United Sites and its possessions. The highest ollieer was at that time entitled the Right Honorable Primo, the Exalted Ruler being next in rank, but the first title was dis continued on the adoption of the ritual in 18S3, and the F.xalted Ruler became the highest official. "Tall oaks from little acorns grow," and the tiny seed planted by Charles Vivian lias grown into a mighty forest, shading, ornament ingniid enriching every State. From the storm-swept coast of Maine to the placid shores of the Mexican Gulf, from t lie silvery Potomac to the winding Kio Grande, throughout the broad, breezy, boundless We.it; along the fair Pacific coast from sunny California to the snowy realms of the far North west, where hosts of sturdy men are thronging now in search of yel low gold, are spread the lodge, of t he Klks, whose latchstriug always hangs outside, ready for the grasp of the band of the suffering. For benevolence the charily which is "the greatest of all" is the corner-stone of the great Order whose ministrations have gladdtned so many sad hearts, brought comfort to so many needy homes, illuminated so many despairing faces with hope and gratitude, brought joy and glad ness to so many wretched little ones. In many of our great cities the Christmas donations of the Klks exceed those from any other source, and donations of tons of fuel and thousands of baskets of provisions are dis tributed among deserving and needy persons, and thousands of childish hearts are gladdened with gifts from the wondrous Christmas trees pre pared by the lOlks for the occasion. Each year, in honor of the Urothers who have passed away, is held a public Lodge of Borrow, one of the most Impressive services in all the range of memorial meetings. The beauty and pathos of the ritual nilist the sympathies and command the admiration of all, and eloquent tongues, Inspired to fresh eloquence by loyalty and friendship, pay homage to their departed Brothers. But the Elks are by 'ho means a gloomy band of ascetics or fanatics. To get good, us well as do good, is their object, and no other order is more famous for its entertainment in which invited guests often partici pate. And if anyone has ever attended one of the "functions" and tailed to have "a good time," there' is something out of gear in his mind or his liver, for of all hosts the Kilts are the jolliest. Bubbling over with fun and hospitality, the brothers abandon themselves to the genius of merri ment, and songs, stories, jokes, witticisms and comicalities- innumerable expand the sourest face into the grin of Momus, and create a rise in the price of vest buttons. " Almost 37r.,000 strong, the growth of this great. Order has just begun, and every week new lodges are erected, and hundreds of young Elks ewell the mighty nu tiered herd. The people are learning that this Is an order which means something, does something, and as thfy see the good which it has accomplished and is accomplishing, the best, truest, manliest men of each community are atl ranted towards the young Order, and the ripples, caused by the little Etone cast into the water, continue to spread in ever-widening circles, each circle embracing a wide area, until there Is no predicting whore the movement will stop. Of such a body of men the Bulletin is proud to be the organ and exponent, and, hoping ere long to see them HOO.OOO strong, wishes them health and prosperity and many happy birthdays. TO THE PUBLIC.

In this connect ion it may not be out I hero has m niich politic ol the way to say that the past been far loo connected with county, territorial and municipal government. What, differ ence dees il make whether a man is a Republican, a Democrat, a ,lTome tinier a dynamiter or a Congregulion alist if he is a competent and honest oflici.ii? What the people want is re sults, and in the face of that it seems little less than ridiculous to require that before lie can be anointed to any oflioial position an applicant must have the endorsement of his precinct club or the county committee. That really makes it. appear that we are govfiTed not by executive officers elected 'to do ihe public business but by Republicans or Democrats, uocord- I ing to which party happened to win j at the last election. j The 1! u 1 1 e t 1 n, therefore, j e'y hopes that.

Put there are a few members who already show signs of flying off the handle and trying to put through certain measures that will not be for the best interests of Ha waii. The Bulletin sincerely hopes that these members may early be per suaded of the error of their ways and may be prevailed upon lo reform. With llic 'object of pointing the way to a quick and businesslike session, the Bulletin desires to mention a lew of the pitfalls that should care fully be avoided. There has, for one thing, been con siderable talk concerning tint advisa bility of extending the scope of coun ty government and turning over more money and responsibility to 'the sev eral counties. For instance, some members favor turning over t tin Ho nolulu water works to Ihe county.
