ADVERTISER. HONOLULU, JULY
16, 1901 THE PACIFIC ouuuncidi Aavertiser VAXTOB. G SMITH - - EDITOR. WEDNESDAY JULY 16 THE NEW SOUTHERN PROBLEM. The central iafranchisement of the negro voters of the South has bred a polemic interest ta the proposal of vrhlcb Consresman Crumpacker of In diana to one of the recent sponsors, to reduce the representation in Congress of tfce State, where the voting has been thus abridged. This procedure would not'. be as radical as it provided for In the terns of the foux e.U amendment, which decided that the nholo number of voters should be the'haaia representation but speci fied that ft an, claw should be disfran chised br' the States, the number of Coagreane from such States should be ct down proportionately. Under the admitted facts the South has for feited height to thlrty-flve seats in the. House . oC . Representatives. But naturally she does not want to give them up 'without a quid pro quo; and sentiment, l,hAPinff :. itself there to wards the offer of a compromise by whl. in return for the surrender of the thlrty-flre seats, the rest of the country will consent to the repeal of the fifteenth amendment, by hich the -rhsht.to voU,, shall, not be denied or abridged "by' the "United States nor by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. There is no probability that these terms will b accepted. Yet thoughtful men In the North quite generally agree that the full enfranchisement of the negro was a mistake. Knowledge of the science of government cannot be gained by the magic of a ballot in hand; self-government by the mass, like sWf-control by the individual, Is a matter of personal and even of ances tral training. By suddenly enfranchis in the' negro, a great brute pulp of human Ignorance and vice was given human Ignorance ana l-' i "in 8 he slopes of Funchbowl send not only the privilege of enacting lajvs gins the slopes -.f tiligeT bsir fVuU tan. vines in the yards WII1CU - This meant chaos ana ... j , - - THE QUEEN'S POSITION. trumo card which Delegate Wilcox hopes to play against Prince Cupid s the tnterJerence in his own behalf, of Queen Liliuokalani.

Indeed he has n more Tl In looking up the basis of Emil Key's claim on the property left by routed ancestor, the great French Marshal, than in setting the Queens ciui before the House. To private bias. In which he acted as if he had a Private interest, he has given the beet part of his official time Hours for Pain and rot one minute for Liliuokalanl! Wilcox has appeared before com mittees to aid the Kohala ditch Job but where is the committee before whom he has pleaded for the restitution of the crown lands? He filed .a" brief for the Tramways but none for Lllluokalani; he tried to double the Present s salary an7h,s own. but he did not raise a finger to guide a dime Into the rSckTts of Hawaii's former sovereign. It would need something as strong as hTpnotism. indeed, to induce Her Majesty to help this very shifty and elu sive friend into another term of office. One might easily conceive that the Queen, not only because her inter ests as a cfaimant are involved but because of her pride of family, would like o Lfone of her Royal house make his mark in Congress. The Queen mus often have been ashamed of Wilcox; she must have keenly realized the blight he was pntting on the good name of her people; it must please her to think that the Prince who Is now leading her young Hawalians could change dis trust and contempt into confidence and respect and make a mark for Hawaii in ttie highest councils of the nation. The Prince is a scholar and a gentle-man- Wilcox is neither. By the social power the young leader would wield at the -apitol his political influence would be vastly Increased and the gentle breeding of the best Hawaiians exemplified. It is useless to speak of social roer in the am breath with Wilcox-the odor of the swearing fishwoman to over it all. But to ta, :-alon of a prince of the old regime, of a princess of beauty and grace, who would not come and in coming be mindful of the chance to do something for Hawaii in return? Of course the Advertiser cannot speak for the Queen, but she is a woman who can speak for herself and for Hawaii, and by that token we predict : that she and Wilcox will find no political ground in common on which to stand against the Prince. ' EARLY MORNING DEPREDATIONS.

Get the Most Out of Your Food You don't and can't if your stom ach is weak. A weak stomach does not digest all that is ordi narily taken into it. It gets tired easily, and what it fails to digest is wasted. Among the signs of a weak stom ach are uneasiness after eating, fits of nervous headache, and disagree able belching.

The further en forcement of a license law against the itinerant fruit peddlers might have a remedial effect. THE CASE OF ANDREE. That Andree crossed the field of the pole seem3 to be fairly well-established; but what he found there may nev er be known unless he kept a diary which has been preserved by those who murdered him. The rumor that the Danish aeronaut had landed in the far confines of Arctic North America came down two years ago but was inconclusive. . Six months ago the account became credible. Now the facts are at hand in a form which admits of little doubt. Andree and his fricn-ls landed in the American snows; ; wild Kskimo were near by; the stran gers discharged a gun cither by design THERE WILL. sBE V A .SPECIAL, meeting of Pacific Lodge. A." F. & A.

Whalers, for some time past, have reported the prvnence, among Eskimo tribes, of scientific in struments, which are now thought to le relics of the Andree party.
