TflE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER? UOyQf.UJ.Ui: NOVEMHRU 24: 1000.
I THE PACIFIC Lbiiim'crciiiiAJvcriiscr SATURDAY' i - butit-- EDi ro a. NOVEMBER 24 rtr. It will toon be time to tiear iomc thiij'j from Washington about the plunders' trust. ' . Mr. Bryan' decision to stay In Neb raska may be the making of him. The air of such a breezy Republican com monwealth is Just the tulng for what ails him. ' If J. Emmeluth gets his deserts he will be too busy in the Federal courts ekrlatnli'g his part in the plumbing contplracy to spare much time for his scheme of municipal plunder in the Legislature. . People who wart Justice In the Cir cuit Court Just now need not expect it If they are too poor to own a coat or too much troubled with prickly heat to wear one. coats are nrst ana a nearmg last In the Bantam Tribunal.' If the Food Inspector, in reporting on finds of adulterated milk, would give the names rather than the numbers of the implicated dairies, he would ac complish more for reform than 13 now possible even by an appeal to the courts.- 'i - i i . T-i ' -A military company has been organ ized at Walluku, a place which, when heard from last week, was navigable for all kinds of pleasure craft. Unless .' stHts or Ilfepreservers are-"tntended to J-figure in tha equipment fit. the Wailuku militia, we suggest that the local pa triots organize as sailors and not as soldiers. Anyhow .While, the cloudburst season. lasts- a,. Naval .Reserve would be Just the thing for WallukjU. 'c : ' Kaulla, who. Imagined that the Legis lature could restore the 'Queen, now thinks that It can turn out Gov. pole's appointees and put him and other lrre sponslbtes in their place. What Kaulla does not know about the Territorial Act would fill a larger book than that which contains the Act itself. Mr. Kau lla will not be High Sheriff and the per sonnel of Government will not be changed to suit him or any other Wil cox malcontent. Votes of want of con fidence do not go In Hawaii now. MIUTAkY SYSTEMS COMPARLD. Cre cf the best results of the allied icd.t.cn m -China is tj retuti t. onceit of the greater ml.ltary powe.t i; d teach them that "there are others ' uite as worthy of respect as .kern el ves In the realm of aold.erly achleve .r.ettt." It la. a current op.nion that the Japanese troops took the honors before Peking' both In marchirg and fight'nr ar.d In their conduct along the route of the advance. Frederick Palmer, the well-known correspondent testifies that: while the other forces were merely moving from day's camp, to day's camp, he. Japanese were scouting1 and keeping rntact with what remained of the enemy, who was ever, promising ;us a real fight. hut never (rave us one. From first to last. General Fukushima had remorselessly Pur4y Double hla Natural Size, 'I Know The meanest things said about Mc Klnley In the late campaign came from the lips of John G. Woolley, Prohibi tion nominee for President and fronj W. A. Burbaker, a Fourth party leader of Illinois, whose lightest words about the Republican nominee were "perjur er. arid "despot," The enormous ma jority for McKlnley In the States where these fanatics were most active. Is a rebuff which ought to improve both their forensic manners and their knowl edge of what does and doesn't appeal to the American spirit of fair play. There has been a great deal of hum bus talked about the suppression of or dinary commercial trusts, the nature of which may be seen In this para graph: Tl.ere are four dry goods stores In Po dunk. What can prevent me from buying out these stores and making a bargain w!th the owners preventing them from engaging In the same business for a term of years or forever. Or could laws be rassrd. that would be valid, preventing . me from doing this and could I not do as I p.eased with these stores, closing up three of them and selling my goods 23 Ier cent less than cost or 200 per cent above coxt. I think that the above covers the entire ground of the so-called Trust questU n. The Supreme Court holds that the or ganizer of such a trust Is acting within his rights. To deny them to him would be to make America a fettered instead of a free country. So far the only trusts that can be prosecuted In the hope of a legal remedy are those which, like the plumbing trust of Honolulu. become a conspiracy In restraint of trade. " ' The Bulletin announces that II. M. Sewalt has Invested 1100,000 In the se curities f these Islands. At the time the Investment was made it was given out that the money came from Arthur . fewaU, as It probably did. But If IL . M, Eewall had that sum with which to take flyers In the market Ma alleged contribution of $250 to the Republican campaign fund here dwindles to a ml croicoplc speck. It Is on record that he gave more than that to defeat his own father for Vice .President when the yours- man was trylrg to make political capital for himself. The Bulletin, which Is ur!rstood to be paying Mr. Sewall for substantial favors rendered, also says tMt the money rollecteJ by him of the puear J-Ianters went Ut the lornl Republican Cjmmltte-.

' - ' in - . . . 1 1 exercise or the functions of mu nicipal government Implies a previous tralnlrg such as Is unknown except to a comparatively small proportion of the people cf Hawaii. In the United States the municipal or local govern ment system la largely a jrrowth and development of early Saxon and Anglo Faxon customs. The American county, city, town, parish and school district Institutions are often considered as the basis and safeguard of American liber ty. But as stated by Judge Dillon In his work on Municipal Corporations "the picture Is not without its shadows. Autre are eviis euner mnerent in our munlclral corporations, or which so generally attend their administration which have greatly detracted from their value." It Is also true that such Insti tution have always been established among a homogeneous people, growing with tre Ir needs and modified by their experience. To engraft such Institu tion upon a people who are unfamiliar with their workings, unused to the re sponsibilities Involved In their success ful oper3tlon. and who have yet to If arn trary of the lessons of liberty re strained by law, would be an experi ment fraught with hazard. nto practice, by means of his cavalry, the re mark that he made . at Ho-She-WO. when the whole amy was praying In its 'nnrrmost heart that we should take an other day's rest. "We are tired, but the enemy is very tired." he said in his quaint, terse Kpgllsh; "he is also scared, and we are not. If we keep on going, he will not only be aware that we are not scared, but thlrk that we are not tired. We shall be much strcnger as he sees us than we really are. H's forces will scat ter, and he will not be able to- make a de termined it and at Peking." As a result, the Japanese were constantly obliged to halt and allow the other forces t? catch tp. On the worst day or tne marcn w per o-nt cf our men and of the British and fifteen rer cent of the Russians fell out. while some of the Indian troops suffered even more. The faces of the big, hulking Russians were sca1et with the rush of blocd. Their reputation as great march ers was this time put' to no theoretical test. After a company of them had rest ed, the officers would 'start a song and, all singing, they would swing out, their tig boots plcwirg the dust as If they were going straight through to Peking without a stop. Gradually . one after another would stop s'nglng'and fall back, until the measure died out with a forlorn croak, and then the" officers' would halt them, Cle tip the. ranks, -call-In the skulkers frcm the kowllang.'tnd Ftart the. song again. A Russian priest who rode with the general in a drosky, under a big white umbrell,, sometimes' Importuned them In the name of the Little Father. Like Impressions were had by all the correspondents who -went- to the . front with the Japanese In 1S94-85. Mpst of them w ho were-In China-then came to belleVe that the Japanese, '"all things considered, were the best soldiers in the world; and, some of the military at taches conceded that they could give points to most of the European armies In the spirit with which they took hold of the art of war. Every detail of the irllltary profession had been carefully worked out by the little brown men and they never failed, wherever placed, to make a good showing of soldierly virtues. A phase of their military character Is depleted" by Sydney Adam- son of the New York Evening Poet, who was a comrade of Mr. Palmer on the recent march. We quote hl3 de scription of a Japanese officer: LCCAL FABLtS. A Judicial Bantam, Clothed In a Lit Je Lr-f Authority, observed a La.ge .tocster, i'erci.ea uou a fcttite, wkoa leathers were Ha;f Off. yvvhy," de manded the Bantam y.th a Cocky Airs "do you.

His clothes, to begin with, were made to fit him. not picked out from the quartermaster's department as , gooa enough to wear In the field or because his th.n ointhe had run out. His accoutre ments were spotlessly clean, his saddle cloth brushed, and the dust on his boots was the dust of one day. his iac was nl h hands were clean, and kept clean by wearing gloves.' His horse was groomed, and there waa no run un ihj. .tin-linn or buckles. Yet this was In the forefroat of everything; this clean of flrr and hU eaually smart colleagues. and those tidy soldiers, had done the hardest marching: their column, often en gaged, had cleared the way for the rest to follow: and. with one exception the Brjtlsh they were the tldleft on the field. T watched this officer all .day. He took things quietly all along, cared for his horse by giving It bits of food on the way, and kept a very easy, pace for the foot sold lers. He never seemed fagged. When he rested the detachment, he called a so!d!er, or one came voluntarily and cut an armful of clean cornstalks, upon which he sat easily. This kept him clei n. Many of the troops, for their own comfort, uid the same. If the Russians are moderately ntilet. the Japanese on the march are s lent. On the ether hand, during a halt the Japs are lively and merry. I saw no sullen, discontented faces. They are real soldiers, not men playing at the business and wishing they were somewhere else and otherwise occupied. The British found something to learn from the Japanese: the Russians LFrench and Americans a great deal. The Amerlcun correspondents agree that their countrymen In khaki were a disappointment, not In coolness under fire as we are glad to note, but in dis cipline and cleanliness. Mr. Adamson visited iho American camp while It was belr.g prepared for the night and wrote of it as follows: Officers discontent with their men had "-nched the boiling point, and they were fi'irlng at their Inability to use extreme Treasures vto discipline the worst element. On little cr no pretext the men had been dropping out. Officers had marched In he rear of their commands to watch there cases. But the men fell out in Vnots, In dozens; then they were missed V' scores, and on reaching camp the ab vrtees were In rome cases twenty or thirty per cent. Some cases were Ken 1r Marr simply nl5e7d "tired" as an -"isp. These were the follows who maddened the offW-ers with their Immi. 'ler.t slouch and jrrlm determination to be t'rrd. I hnve heard some of the men benst that they have never been knocked out yet. and don't mean to be. I usually mu inai iney were in the Old regular ser vice, and know something of the pla'ns. It Was a decidedly cross and unhappy camp. In another paragraph the rame writer declares that, the American soldiers gashed none of their outer garments on the march though a British Lancer, a type of his class, cleansed his tunic three times In one day. "This new American army lacks regular habits of my kind." writes Mr. Adamson, "and 'ts best friends, the older regular offi cers, would hesitfce lopR before they stated that It had any real discipline. I heard a group of marine ofilcers the other day discussing these things. One -aid:- 'Before I came h-re I thought the American troors were the finest in the world.. I had not been out here for more than a week or two when I got rid of that Idea once and for all.' The rest of the group heartily agreed." Such lessons as these cannot but be 'lseful to Americans as they will h Europeans whose shortcomings were equally plain and as candidly revealed by the observers of the press.

"Smith,: for many years a missionary in China is one of the closest observers and the keenest analyzers of any of tthe many able men who have written concerning China and the Chinese. He has a masterly command of clear cut and decisive English and has written two books en titled "Chinese Characteristics" and "Village Life In China," which are ac knowledged to be of the highest au thority, and to present the fullest and tmost accurate analysis of inner Chi nese life yet published. , Mr. Smith has .visited in Honolulu and Is well-known here. He was in the city of Peking during the siege and ? still on the ground. He Is writing a series of articles upon the disturbances In China and the causes' thereof, which are being: published in the "Outlook." The first one is reprinted: in this is sue of the Advertiser. It ' should be read by every one both for the concen trated Information contained therein, and for the wonderfully vivid word picturing:, showing- for the first' time what frightful retribution has already befallen China for its murderous at tack on civilization. Never In the dark ages was the sack of a. city more complete, the destruction ".of le an property greater and the utter, defeat and humiliation of a government and people so absoldte. ' v Peking, one of the greatest and most ancient cities, lies to-day In ruins: its ..i -trope-Hnir fugitives; Its univer- -nv and library, the oldest and one cf the largest In the world destroyed; t w,. nt t Inhabitants killed I11CLJVS1 1 J " " , scattered; its banks and business houses not only ruined but absolutely rooted up and wiped out of existence; Its temples and palaces turned Into barracks and military stables: Its holy places desecrated, the memorial tablets of its emperors carried away to grace foreign museums. All of this is most graphically described by an absolutely reliable eyewitness. . - : ' The municipal movement has these objects: To take from the Territorial govern ment as much power and patronage as possible. - . To use such power and patronage for the building up of a political machine that will support a larpe corps of tax eaters and, by heavy drafts upon the tax-payers perpetuate itse'f. , To run Honolulu Into debt for public Improvements which, are not needed and which would not be honestly car ried out. . As the Republican, party of. Hawaii is not committed by Its platform to an Immediate erection of municipal gov ernments in these Islands It should re frain from any act which would com promise its good name or further the designs of the conspirators. the or Among the net gains for the Demo crats.m the recent elections are Web Davis and Senator Wellington. -There is very little else and the Bryan party rray be pardoned for making the most of them.
