1 '1 i i 3 L I- i. j I :.f . ? THE PACIFIC Aaverussr TAX?H Q. SMITH - - JfiDlTOtt. SATURDAY : : : - JULY 12 YOUNG MEN IN POUTICS. THE LOCAL DEMOCRACY. Senator Blackburn. It seems, is com ing to Hawaii to find out what is the matter with the Democratic party. At the hearins on the apportionment bid. the Senator showed surprise at the statement that there was not, in an Hawaiian elective office, a single Dem ocrat, none having even been chosen to the Legislature. His remark that he did not suppose there was such a place in the United States quite prepared those who heard lt when his name ap peared In . the list of the visiting com ; mission, to expect that he would show an; active and perhaps a constructive interest in Hawaiian politics. The Senator's first step. It seems, has , 'heexi to sound Wilcox about the possi ' bility of turning Home Rulers into Democrats. It will please him to hear. on his arrival, that 'Mr. Wilcox's first tor. after cominfT home, was to strike off jthe word ' "Republican" ' from the titles. of the Independent, Home Rule "party. So far so good.. Senator Black - burn is also trying to bring Mr. Wilcox and Col. Cornwell together;' and it ap pears that the Delegate has sent for Col. Cornwell twice.,' What the harvest -will be we da not attempt to forecast, nor do we think that the visiting Ken tucky statesman will find out until af ter the November elections in the States. Should Congress go Democrat ic the attitude of Delegate Wilcox will assuredly be In favor of calling his party Home Rule Democratic or plain Democratic, for that matter, in ine bright lexicon of his politics Mr. Wil cox knows no ethical difference be tween the Republican and Democratic parties; the question is one of stand ing with the winners for all there fs in it. In this view of political duty the older members of his party probably share; though the younger ones are by no means inclined to have their poll tics shifted, like the painted scenes In a theater, by a concealed hand. A PERMANENT SPLIT. The decision of the young Hawaiian members of the Home Rule party to sacrifice no jot of principle for the sake of union with the men who had broken faith with them, was made good last evening at a spirited meeting in Fos ter Hall. The reformers were out in force, and it is evident that they mean to leave the Wilcox-Kalaukalanl fac tion to its own devices while they move to higher ground. Delegate Wilcox was present and heard himself describ ed with a plentiful lack of compliment. And what is quite as significant, he got no sympathy anywhere. The movement of the young Hawaii ana is likely td "spread throughout the group. In fact It has been anticipated on Maui and "in that and the other isl ands there must come so deep a feeling over the centralized management of the old Home Rule organization, as to swell the numbers of. the protestants. Wilcox and Kalaukalanl believe in naming the personnel of 'Home Rule conventions and of seats in the Legis lature, ignoring the rank and file of the Lahul they so often laud. Young Ha- The hope of every party that means to progress Is i,n its .young men. in religion if every boy had always balievcd what" his father held to be true, we should ail be pagans. In politics we should stifl be fighting over dead and buried issues. To the young man who has no vital concern in the things, be hind him but is anxious to apply himself to the things in front, mankind owes its ability to get along to escape the stagnant places and achieve new conquests and firmer ground. J The hope of the"Hawaiian cannot rest upon men who live so far in the past as to think that these islands will ever revert to the monarchical form of government, and who strive to exhume ancient politics. That way failure lies. Hawaii ia now American and unless captured and held by a foreign enemy it will always be so. The part of wisdom, therefore, is to fall in with American ideas; to have none but American political parties and, as far as our special conditions justify them, none but American systems of business and civil ad ministration. The young Hawaiians understand this. They see that the old order has passed away and that there is no use in crying over it or in trying to bring it back. It is their wish to develop not only the Territory but them selves "along traditional American lines;" and in doing that to win for the Hawaiian race that perfect equality of standing and influence which comes from acknowledged desert. The usefulness of young men in politics, leading new ' departures and opening new soil, has many illustrations in the history of the United States When the old Whig party commenced to die of dry rot. the young men began to work for a new and more vital organization. Men of the Daniel Webster age and habit of thought protested in yam. "I am a Whig, .a Massachusetts Whig, a Faneuil Hal! Whig," Webster declared, "and ' If the Whig party Is disbanded, where am I to go?" The "Uhanswering comment was: "There is no more work In America for a Whig to perform; turn your face to the party which must Succeed the Whigs, the party which, untrammeled with a past, is ready for the new work that must be done. If you cannot join it, there is no place for you." And there was none. ' The old Whig leaders either passed from the stage or they fell in with the plans of the Republicans whose party .was essentially that of the young men of the nation and the party which did more, for national advancement than its predecessor hal ever thought of doing.- ' " ' .' ,: . " .' But after awhile the young Republicans of 1856 aged in Bourbon ways and could not stop fighting the war issues even after the war had long since passed. They did thus in 1S76 and narrowly missed defeat In a Presidential contest. Four years iuisr, learning nothing by experience, they again raised the bloody shirt; but the new young men of the party refused to fight under that exhumed and meaningless emblem and insisted upon living issues. They wanted a fight upon the platform of honest money and a protective tariff, and they had their way. The result was a revival of Republican interest all over the country and the election of Garfield. On the Democratic side young men like Daniel S. Lamont, E. K. Apgar, Pattison of Pennsylvania, and D. B. Hill determined In 1884 to stop the long succession of Democratic defeats by getting the party away from its copperhead past; and they did so, elect ing a man for President who, but four, years previously, had been so slightly identified with politics that, on the occasion of a visit of the Democratic standard-bearer to the city where he lived, he was not well enough known to get an invitation to sit on the platform at the rally or to serve on the com mittee of reception. There were plenty of old stagers like Samuel J. Tilden, Abram S. Hewitt and Allan G. Tfcurman who grew savage at the very thought of new men and new Issues; but the time had come for the young man to reform his party and he did so with the result of getting Cleveland into the Presidency twice. ' Yesterday a young Hawaiian was coarsely assailed by a partisan of Wil cox for joining Prince Cupid in the convention bolt. He was told that Senator Kalauokalani was a statesman when the young Hawaiian was in his nurse's arms as if that counted for anything as a test of modern political fitness. It was true that Kalauokalani has been identified closely with politics of a long past and equally true that he is identified with that politics yet. He cannot adapt himself in any way to the new duties which new occasions have taught; his aim is to get Hawaii back on the old ground that is familiar to him. He do?s not know, that this footing became untenable nearly ten years ago nor realize that revolutions never move backward. The young Hawaiian' was wiser than he; less mindful of the past thai the future, he saw that the duty of the time is not expressed1 in the motto: "Hawaii for the Hawaiians," but in the newer and better one: "The Hawaiians for Hawaii." He understood that if Hawaiians are to count for something they must accept the American system and work on broad lines for the good of the Territory and all the peo ple in it; and saying simply that, as an 'American citizen he could see no good In the WIIcox-Kaulauokalanl program, he went his way,' confirmed in the belief that the sooner Hawaiians drop the Bourbon policy the better it will be for them and for their country. - , If there are enough young Hawaiians of the same spirit and stamina, the political outlook for every true friend and well-wisher of this Territory is orient. The rl?nt start has been made; the question now is whether the young men will keep their pace. That issue resolves itself into a general in terrogation as to whether Hawaiian youth are steadfast in their undertak ings If they are, then Hawaii and its native people will soon see better days. Catarrh Is a discharge from the mucous membrane of the nose, throat, 6tomach," bowels, etc., when kept in a state of inflammation by an im pure condition of the blood and. a want of tone in the system. Soothe the inflamed membrane, strengthen the weakened system, and the discharge will stop to do this purify the blood. "I was troubled with catarrh for years and tried various remedies but found noth ing that would cure me. I then resolved to try Hood's Sarsaparilla and took four bottles which entirely cured me. I have never been troubled with catarrh since. As a blood purifier I can find nothing else equal to Hood's Sarsaparilla." William Shjcehaic, 1030 6th St Milwaukee, Wis. Hood's Sarsaparilla Cures catarrh radically and perma nently removes its cause and overcomes all its effects. Accept no substitute.

The line of cleavage thus dug, is not likely to be spanned. Mr. Wilcox knows that if he) crosses the chasm for harmony's sake he cannot rule the party longer; and the young Hawaiians know that if they cros the fatal gorge they will simply register themselves as slaves to the j Wilcox interest, bonded to do as , they I are told.

The United States Pension office had a novel experience the. other day in getting a letter from a veteran who said that, as the Lord had prospered him of late, he thought it best to take less than the ISO per month allowed him by the Government. It was the first time the Pension office had ever received such a notice. The letter was referred to a pension examiner who re ported as follows: "I have the honor to Inform you that the person who ap plied for a reduction in his pension is now in the insane asylum at this place, and has been for some time." T Emperor William's new American yacht. Meteor, is not showing up well ia the Kiel races. Buying yachts for sneed is a good deal of a ramble. Two such craft may be framed on the same lines, yet one will be vift and the oth er slow. About the best way to make sure of a good yacht is to buy one with i record. The Kaiser should have tried for "the Columbia if he wanted an American yacht that would go. The U. S. training ship Mohican is out from Yokohama nearly fifty days. Con trary winds at the same season of the year have kept sailing vessels on the course three months. The management a ship at such a time is the best of training for future navigators and it may be that the captain has shut off steam entirely and Is giving the cadets . some especially useful lessons in pa tient seamanship. The Board of Health reconsidered its decision about letting newspaper men go to Molokal and two of them made the trip. As a result the readers of the Advertiser will not have to depend on second-hand data about the status of the leper colony. conducting a magazine and a corre spondence university, also makes auto mobiles which sell from $650 to $5000, there or. thereabouts. It Is obvious that if Mr. Edison's auto at a minimum price of $350 turns out to be a3 good as Mr. Walker'a auto at a minimum price of $650, Mr. Edison, unless under bidden in turn, will get the business. Hence the heat of Mr. Walker's re marks. f Yet everybody must have looked for something of the kind. The last word about autos was by no means said when the earlier ones, such as Mr. Walker deals in, were put on the mar ket. It was to nave been exnected that quality would improve and price di minish, which is the history of most devices of pleasure and utility. Time was when the Swiss watchmakers be lieved that none but fakers would promise a workable American watch for $50. First-class Yankee time-keepers, in filled cases, are now sold for $20 and the Swiss watch has been practically driven out of the United States' mar ket. Within the memory of this writer a first-clase brecch-Ioading shotgun cost $250. It can now be had for $30 or less. Better sewing muchines than those which used to bring $125 are now sold for $60. A lighter, stronger and swifter bicycle than that which cost1 $125 twelve years ago is now selling at $."0. In the very nature of thinM y.o - - - - - o vi" low variety, good as they are.
