'15KST (iOYEIlNMENT ON EARTH."
An Interview -with Mr. D. A. Ray,
tho Secretary of the Senate Inter
State Commerce Committee, and pri
vate secretary of Senator Cullom, is
published in the Hilo Herald of the
20th instant, and is republished in an
other column. It is an interview that
is extremely suggestive, and should be
carefully read. It touches on points
which are vital to our Industry. Mr.
flay disclaims any official authority to
express any authoritative opinions
about our affairs, but it is evident
enough that he feels the trend of the
winds. He is evidently familiar with
the prevailing thought in Washington
regarding these Islands, and, therefore,
what .he says is of more value than
the opinions of men iat a distance and
who may be regarded as interested
parties, , When 'he says that he can
say "almost authoritatively" that
these Islands will have a territorial
form of government, and not a colo
nial, he only expresses what we be
lieve as tho settled policy of the Ad
ministration and the Republican party

When Mr. Ray says that: "The Com
missioners hare a hith rcyard far the
present yoremment, and personally 1
consider it the best on the face of the
earth," he indeed casts a gloom over
the faces of the Special Agent and his
supporters, who have accused this gov
ernment of "imbecility," and "damna
ble cowardice" and a general neglect
of American interests. Perhaps these
gentlemen will find some way of prov
ing to Mr. Ray that he is inflicted with
"hallucinations," and it grossly lack
ing in perceptive faculties. It is a lit
tle surprising that after all of the
vituperative literature they have creat
ed in order to show what an "incubus,"
and decidedly "un-American" affair
the government is, they have not con
vinced Senator Cullom, Representative
Hitt, and their great following, and
that these eminent leaders of the Re
publican party still "have a high re
gard for the present government." It
seems to be a case of unrewarded toil.
As the joint father of the unborn Re
publican labe in these Islands, they
must view the birth of the child, de
ferred as it is, 'In a land which has
produced, since February, '93, only
cowardly and incompetent official
scamps, as an unfortunate -event. The
hail hid nation of Mr. Ray should be
removed at once. . It may have led him
to "crush to earth" -witlh his foot the
Truth about the government which
these gentlemen possess, but they need
not despair. "It will rise again. The
eternail years of God are hers." And
when it rises, bang will go Mr. Ray
and the eminent Republican leaders
who have put their feet on it, or in it.
The covenant of their victory may be
sealed with some of their own blood
as they have not spilt any of it in
the present war, and have abundance
of lit for sealing purposes, if not for
war purposes.
The Advertiser, in the name of the
many here, who have faitnfully stood
by the present government in the days
of trouble, thanks Mr. Ray for his
kindly words. These friends of the
government are well aware that it is
far indeed from being a perfect govern
ment. It has, at times,, exasperated
its friends. It is open 'to -much . cri
tiaism about many things. It has
criminally iieglected to provide places
for the hungry "boys." But as "justice
is Uie whole secret of success in gov
ernment," it has steadily kept this
maxim in . view, and has achieved a
large measure of success.
When iMr. Ray saj-s that it is "the
best government on the face of the
earth" he little knew how much sor
row and anguish he carried to the
souls of some Earnest Patriots here
who seem to believe that it is the
worst government on the face of the
earth. Mr. Ray must be careful or
these "white caps" will be on his trail.
Die Kdelmetal Industrie says
on the summit of an extinct
cano in the Witries Hock Mountains
of Natal, soundings have revealed the
presence of diamonds in a layer of
sand. The district within which the
diamonds are found is not a diamonti
ferous one. It is believed that the pres
ence of diamonds an this extinct vol
cano may indicate the processes by
which these stones are formed.
Dr. .Maxwell has just completed an
exhibit for the Paris Exposition which
shows with singular clearness the pro
cess of the evolution of sulphur,
alumina, iron, and other substances
from lava. Is it possible that he has
"up his sleeve" specimens of lava in
the act of changing into diamonds?
If he has, he judiciously keeps it a
secret at present. This small commu
nity is now in a feverish condition ow
ing to .the large speculations in stocks,
and the suddenoutbreak of lava Hows
on Hawaii. If upon these exciting
causes Dr. Maxwell should declare that
he had discovered specimens of lava
which exhibited the process of form
ing diamonds, this community would
go to the mad-house. Sugar stocks
would sink out of sight for awhile,
and diamond picnic parties would root
up all of the standing cane in search
for the stones.
It is the pursuit of riches and not the
possession of them that gives the high
est pleasure to the carnally minded.
In the search for diamonds there is an
excellent opening for "pursuits."
If Dr. Maxwell is satisfied that the
islands are "teeming with diamonds,"
he should break the knowledge of the
fact gently to us. We shall now realize
the significance of the term "Diamond
Head," as applied to our southern
headland. No doubt a tradition may

PRESIDENT JORDAN'S HERESIES
President Jordan of Stanford Univer
sity causes the little political Tom-tits
much distress because he is an inde
pendent in politics. Of course the
Tom-tit journals call 'him a Democrat,
and display great anguish over the
"baleful influence" of a man who is
now doing so much to mould the habits
and thoughts of the young people of
California.' In his published dis
courses on' the duties of citizenship,
discourses which are becoming a part
of the standard literature of the coun
try he never urges "the paving of
the Flag," but tells the young that the
future of tne nation depends upon the
character of its men and women.
This simple proposition which, omits
the use of the Flag, is regarded by
the Tom-tits as un-American. A few
