' In her final years, reigning no longer as sovereign

crown and scepter, shorn of power and splendor,
lived to, put aside her bitterness and lead her peoi

Why Not?
WHY Should not the general public be given
the opportunity to tand up in "open meet
. ing" ami tell . the members of the Congressional
, Tarty what they think about the land question in
'Hawaii? is the query that has been received by
The Advertiser in various forms since the senators
. and reprcrita'tivej from the national capital land-

! The Advertiser -doeimVkiiow olny reason why
f they should not and it can think of quite a num-
, . '..('. tr of reasons why they should particularly when
i ' ' . ; it hears influential men Bay that the system which
permits of the opening up of public lands to home
f 0 steading is a "wild and dangerous system."
..''.V;:v Tlie members of the Congressional Party have
evinced particular interest in the land question in.
, ... Hawaii,, and having seen how the laws, are mal
' .-' administered by the present executive head of the'
government, various members' of the party have
. ; ,'V,' expressed the pinion that a radical change is
' . ' necessary: "' ' ' "'. '
: . - : With this opinion The Advertiser and we be
1 . , lieve the majority of the people of the Territory
. 1 ; heartily agrees. . Not that the laws as they stand
; " '. on the statute books are necessarily all at fault
but their administration by a Governor who has!
done all posible to make homesteading a failure
does call attention to the need
cdy for prevailing conditions.
. If the people of the Territory
in the development of the varied
given a chance publicly to tell
tors what they think about the
from Washington will undoubtedly hear some
things that do not agree with the opinions whisp
ered into their legislative ears
It is. possible that homesteading may not, for,
the present, at least, yield any such plethoric re
turns as may be obtained by shutting the people
off from the land, but the American and demo
cratic idea i to "man .the land." And that is
what congress seems to believe in.,
, At any rate, the ".small fry" who are not in
vited to official balls and receptions, who do not
own "dress suits" which might admit them to the
' presence of the gubernatorially guarded senators
and representatives, are entitled to a hearing and
The Advertiser believes that it is just those people
that the national legislators want to hear from.
' ; Can it not be arranged that, upon the return
to Honolulu of the Congressional Party, there
ehall be a real mass meeting for the discussion
of the laud question, at which, the hoi polloi shall

themselves the right to dictate

Uneasy Bulgaria
W HOEVER these Bulgarian agents may be
who are sounding the Entente about peace,
and whether "Czar" Ferdinand knows of their
activities or not, they' are proceeding in a most
sensible manner, from a' Bulgarian point of view,
says the New York Times. For a year now ('er
many has been trying to coddle and hoodwink the
Allies into a peace conference without even a hint
at what shall be discussed there. : She has winked,
insinuated, nodded, and gesticulated, all to the
purport that if the Allies will only come in they
will be surprised to see how well. they will come
out. To Bulgaria and her other accomplices she
has winked and nodded to a precisely contrary
effect ; all this is merely to fool the. Entente, and
they can trust honest old Germany to stand by her
:riends when once the peace conference has safely
met. And now Bulgaria is growinguspiriotis.
h It has occurred to Bulgaria that while it is per
fectly true that somebody is being fooled, it may
possibly not be the Entente. Bulgaria has begun
to reason that there are only two parties who can !
be tricked, one being the. Entente Allies and the
other the Teuton allies; and that if it should turn
out that Germany is telling. Jhe,1ruth to the En-j
tente Allies then the Teuton "allies will get the
worst of it. Bulgaria is well versed in the ( ierman
doctrine that any fraud is permissible so long as
it advances the interest of the State, and concludes
that if it would advance Germany) interest to be
tray Bulgaria she would not hesitate to do it.
' Therefore Bulgaria, or some power in Bulgaria,
tries to make her conquests surety negotiating
with the Entente, whose word she can safely take,
provided she can get if; It has dawned on Bul
garia that, according to the latest pronouncements
from Berlin, Bulgaria is at presentngliting solely
that Germany may retain Alsace-Lorraine. That
is not true, of course; but it has' this much truth,
that .Bulgaria is fighting solely for Germany's in
terests now, that the time has long passed when
she was fighting for bet" own interests. Why, Bul
garia evidently argues, should we go on fighting
for .Germany, who would not scruple to betray us
if she could reap an advantage at the peace tabic,
when perhaps we can get what ' we want by ar
ranging with the Entente about it? The same
idea . ma'yl some day dawn on -Turkey, although
Turkey woVld have even less chance than Bul
garia of getting What she wants out of the En

. Since tl-beginning of thewar 10,000 devices
for ending the conflict quicklyfhve been ..submit
ted by inventors to the United'States government.
Out of this number which have been and are .now
being investigated perhaps 100 will be found to
be practicable, says the Los Angeles Times, but
he submission of the thousands of inventions is
evidence of the patriotic spirit of America. How
ever, the people may as well make up their minds
hat the war cannot be won through the use of a
few man-killing machines,, however effective they
may be. There is only one way to win and that
is 'through the concerted effort of all the people-1-inventors,
machinists, farmers, ditch diggers,
preachers, journalists, soldiers and civilians. Vic
tory can only come through the willingness of
every man, woman and child in America to do
his part either in the field or at home.
It takes thin; -4i V2fc.s to spell the word
