' The Governor will be sustained by
the great majority of the taxpayers in
his refusal to extend the Legislative
session While the Home Rulers might
give some of the additional time to good
bills it is certain mat they would give
more of it to bad ones and heap up,
meanwhile, another odoriferous mass
of scandal. Where a Legislature is
both incompetent and vicious, the less
the taxpayers have of it the better will
they be satisfied.

The late J. N. Wright was a good
citizen of Honolulu, and before that
time had been a good soldier of the
Union. He was an enthusiast in Grand
Army matters and had more to do, per
haps, than any other one man in mak
ing the local post a strong and useful j
organization. It was a pleasure to at
tend the annual camp fire given upon j
his estate, and it was a pleasure to
meet him in any relation of life. Mr.
"Wright will not soon be forgotten in
this community, upon which his impress
Is both broad and deep.
The appearance of small pox at Lihue
plantation is a serious matter, and one
that warrants the Board of Health in
taking drastic measures to protect not
only the uninfected people on Kauai,
but the inhabitants of the oth'er islands.
With over 80,000 Asiatics and some 80,
000 natives in the group, we have a
population that small pox would mow
down as with a scythe. Whatever in
convenience quarantine matters may
involve, it should be cheerfully accept
ed by the people. Better the plague it
self than a small pox epidemic, so far
as public mortality is concerned.
When Joseph Aea was named for
West Point, the Advertiser advised him,
In case he went East, to buy a return
ticket. It now appears that Mr. Aea
failed to pass the examination in Eng
lish, whereupon Delegate Wilcox has
named another young Hawaiian, E. V.
Richardson, for the place. The chances
are ten to one that something untoward
will also happen o him. In such event
we hope that Delegate Wilcox will have
the good sense to open competitive ex
amination to which all comers of suit
able ag and legal residence may be
welcome. That is the custom elsewhere
and it is the only one which gives much
promise of getting a youth who can sur
mount the West Point obstacles.
The more chance that is given trolley
lines to reach the mountain ridges and
the upland valleys the better for the
health of the town. Few places ever
needed cheap and easy access to high
altitude more than Honolulu does. Not
many people can go abroad for the
change of climate that all need: and
but few are ab'e to maintain summer
homes on the accessible ri'ljvs behind
this city. Mere carrlafre visits to the
heights cannot t ne up enervated sys
tems. What is needed up there are fa
cilities for long viirs in hot -ath-er,
and these cannot be provided for
the people until rapid 1 nd cheap com
munication between ...(! an(j
mountain ras b?en established.
It is the misfortune of newspapers
that cannot agree with every measure
proposed by social reformers to have
-their motives questioned. Elsewhere
Mr. Theodore Richards ventures the re
mark that "extensive liquor ads" may
have kept the press of Honolulu from
supporting the Dispensary bill. In
point of fact, the liquor interest does
but little advertising, the income from
Its trade announcements being in the
aggregate less than the newspaper sub

Advertiser is concerned the question of

The School street extension bill was
then once more taken up.
Mossman said the amount originally
agreed upon was $5,000 not $6,000. It is
not right that the appropriation for this
road be fixed now and other street ex

show, no partiality.
Prendergast: "Very good, Mr. Speak

so. This road Is the only outlet to Ka
