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.
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-

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.

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."
