SMITH - - - - ' . ' ' FRIDAY i ; : : : 7 : : MARCH 13 FLORAL PARADE MOTION - PICTURE he (Continued from Ps.ge One.) said, had often been overlooked. UNIONIZED FIELD LABOR. Commissioner Sargent, in his lettt-r to Mr. Wood, does not make it clear whether in his opinion, Hawaii should import white men from the mainland for farmers or plantation laborers, but from his references to the Spanish am. 1'ortuguese importations, we assume that he means the latter. Before snapping at this opportunity, however, it would be well for the planters to enquire first, whether it would be possible to round up mamlanders of the tyre Mr. Sargent had in mind, without the aid of the labor unions to whose Principles he is devoted; and secondly, whether the introduction to' our sugar estates, with their larKe number of Asiatics, of bodies of organized white laborers of the kind the unions naturally choose, would not do more harm than good. . . . .. This paper has never regarded America as a promising source of plantation labor, but as the place of all places in which to look for an employing class of farmers. The organized or unionized mainlander would either try to get our Asiatic labor to take orders from the Federation or he would raise the cry of "the Japanese must go." In either case his presence here would work havoc with the sugar industry and make our politics even more uncertain and menacing than they are now. " White Europeans for canefield labor; white Americans for a substantial middle class in diversified agriculture, is the plan which seems best adapted to the general welfare of this group. . . - THE ANTI-SALOON MOVEMENT. That the Anti-Saloon League has something up its sleeve which will astonish this community next Sunday evening goes without saying. It is keeping quiet about the matter, but the tidings have leaked out that, having learned that Jaek Atkinsvn has thrown himself body and soul into the anti-saloon move ment, and that already be had marshaled a large body of young voters benf upon ridding. these islands of the liquor evil the league-secured him as one or the speakers for its rally. These voters will be out in force'at the Union mass meeting, in Central Union Church, Sunday night, to hear their - leader talk. Jack's speech will not be a long one, but it will be a bombshell in the camp of the enemy.' The liquor men are consequently on the qui vive and Central Union will see gathered within its portals a number of these defenders of King Alcohol not usually found in its audiences. They want"" to know at first hand the array which they must buck against in the fight to the finish, which is promised by the now thoroughly aroused league. . That the successes throughout the' mainland have galvanized the local 'anti-saloon forces into life has been evident to all ever since the announcement was made that the Hon. John O. "Woolley had been secured as superintendent of the league. Mr. Woolley Las been conducting a campaign as thorough and efficient as it has been quiet. He has visited and addressed every public school in the Territory except those of Puna and Kohala and one or two on Oahu. The children have taken tbfe campaign into the homes and the response has been unexampled in the history of these islands.' When Mr. Woolley uncovers his hand Sunday evening, the 6aloon forces will have to marshal a rare show of trumps to defeat him. Alto gether the man on the fence in Honolulu expects a very lively and entertaining battle from now on between the friends and foes of the saloon. This city has not in a long time been promised so rich a tr eat in the realm of moral battling as that scheduled for next Sunday nighty in the union mass meeting of voters in Central Union Church. - . ' : ' WILFLEY AND ANDREWS. The commendation of Judge Wilfley by the President and Secretary Boot leaves it to be inferred that the Judge has made no mistakes and done no wrong and that those who seek to benefit by his impeachment .are only "brothel , . keepers, swindling lawyers and men who live by blackmail and corruption." A review of the whole matter exempts very many petitioaers against Judge Wilfley from any such stigma, whatever it may credit him in the way of leforms. The representative American business men of Shanghai and "those of similar position in Manila, where Judge Wilfley once flourished, are by no means scoundrels and are not accused of being such; yet they do not believe Wilfley to be just or fair and would wish to see him removed from office. Hono lulu people who know .the character of one of Judge Wilfley's legal victims, Lorrin Andrews, are by no means in accord about Wilfley with the President and Secretary Boot. They know Mr. Andrews to be an able and honorable man and they regard Judge Wilfley's attitude towards him as one of persecution. The point is this: After Washington had reviewed the original case against - Andrews, it is said to have sent a strong hint to Judge Wilfley that he had gone too far. At any rate, the Judge offered to examine Mr. Andrews again, did so, neadmitted him to practice and professed good will. Yet it was per fectly plain to Mr.. Andrews and his friends that the court wag only waiting for. another chance to punish him; and so they were not surprised when Wilfley made the text of some papers filed by Mr. Andrews' in an appeal case against one of his decisions, the pretence for disbarring him. No bar association would have stood for disbarment on those grounds; no American tribunal would have treated the matter so drastically, giving the accused man no chance to defend himself. Naturally, Mr. Andrews sought justice from Congress; but he now finds the. President and the Secretary of State not only defending Wilfley, but in referring to conditions which Andrews emerged from with the Shanghai court 'g own vindication, it classes him with those who never shared in that vindication and may not have deserved to. The only absolutely the only act which put Andrews where he is is that of taking an appeal in terms which wounded Wilfley's self-esteem; and for this he finds himself classed with people ct the lowest character. v The W. C. T. U. women want to open a coffee saloon on the waterfront to counteract the liquor Ealoons. It is a good idea if wisely carried out. Run by a man who never opens his mouth about temperance or religion, a place -where a woman never shows herself, "unless she happens to be a Salvation Lassie and from which the clergy absent themselves also, a waterfront coffee saloon would catch a good many' wayfarers. But these gentry are particular. They want the place to look like a liquor saloon as much as possible, they don't want to be "labored with" for the good of their souls and they don 'J want to see Bible texts on the walls. There, should be tobacco for sale as . well as coffee and cold drinks; and no prayer meetings and no sociables or concerts. If the W. C. T. U. starts a place of this kind the venture will have a chance to live. Some way ought to be found, when the moving pictures of nawai'ian scenes are shown on the mainland, to let the audiences know the time of year when they were taken. To an Eastern eye, the Honolulu Floral Parade is an August spectacle. Yet it took place on the 22nd of February, a time when the East is bleak and cheerless, frozen, desolate and bound in snow. It would increase the pleasure of the spectator and the value of the advertising to this Territory if the seasonal feature of the motion pictures was never lost sight of. Either the lecturer should tell the month or it should be flashed on the screen as well as mentioned in the program ' m : v It will be a good thing for Honolulu if the gossip of the sailor about the coming here of a monitor to take the place of the Iroquois as a station ship turns out to be true. This station is usually commanded by an Admiral, who is forced to put up with a tug for a flagship in ase he goes to sea.-Such a command is a humiliation to an officer of flag rank or of any rank above that of a junior lieutenant. And Honolulu itself is important enough to have the protection in case of emergency, of a vessel carrying big guns. A monitor of the Wyoming il'f woum nil tne Dill.

The first selection of pictures was as follows: The inauguration of President Roosevelt: the President escorted from the White House to the Capitol, to take oath of office. The inaugural parade; the United States' Army and Navy cadets in line of march on Pennsylvania avenue. "When the whistle blows." A scene on the lawn of the National Cash Reg ister Works at Dayton, Ohio. This dismissal across the lawn was made specially for this picture, and shows the entire factory force of four thou sand employes crossing' the lawn. A "buck dance." A noontide diver sion of '.the janitors at the National Cash Register 'Works, Dayton, Ohio. A noontime dismissal of the Steel high School at Dayton, Ohio. A cotillion two-step given at a lawn party at Dayton, Ohio. t " A circle swing. A scene in a pleas ure park near Cincinnati, Ohio. The second part of this scene was made from one of the swinging cars, taking in the next car ahead. Fire-hole rapids. A cascade on Fire hole river in the Yellow-stone National Park. Answering an alarm. A call on one of the fire stations in the city of Day ton, Ohio. Launching of the .U. S. scout boat Salem at the Fore-river shipbuilding yard, at Quincy, Mass. "A close call at home." A scene on the ball field at Cincinnati, Ohio, in a memorable game; Lajoie at the bat, Peits catching, and Harry Bay slides to home plate. Tim Hurst, umpire. Prince, a thoroubred and a winnerl A series of pictures from the Canal Zone gave some idea of the work, the people and the conditions. The pro gram said it was a medley of short scenes showing the various methods of handling dirt along the Panama Canal. It showed a sanitary squad fumigating a house at Culebra; a squad of native Machette men clearing put a jungle; a scene at the old market-place, Pa nama; a Sunday diversion Jamaica negroes doing a two-step. A large part of the remainder of the pictures were Hawaiian. The pictures of surf-riding, Mr. Holmes said, were the finest taken of that subject up to date, but that it was his hope and Mr. Bonine's to take some better ones before they left, better because they -would be taken under conditions that would enable the , machines to repro duce this wonderful sport in represen tation with more lifelike reality. A series of pictures taken on tin? Island of Hawaii were followed by a series presenting many of the features of the Pasadena Floral Parade on New Tear's Day, including the chariot races a la Ben Hur, which' were driven, there. Thus the audience had a stand ard with which to compare our own. Floral Parade, and it may be said that' ours did not suffer in the comparison. The deep'est interest was no doubt felt in the pictures of our own Floral Parade. These were numerous, pre senting most if not all the distinct fea tures pi it and giving an excellent idea cf the whole affair, considered as a spectacle. . The closing pictures were a number taken at the Kaiulani School when Governor Frear and Mrs. Ella Wheeler Wilcox were there; some taken last Saturday at the sailing of the Man churia, in which also Mrs. Wilcox was the central figure, and a number taken on Sunday at KaWaiahao church, bringing the pictures not only up to date, but, as Mr. Holmes said, almost up to day after tomorrow7. The remainder of the program of pictures was as follows: A panorama down King street, Ho nolulu, as seen from the front of an Lelectric car. The scene starts at Pal ace Square and "continues down King street, terminating at the Oahu Rail way station. A panorama scene along the Oahu Railway past Pearl City, as seen from the pilot of a rapidly-moving locomo tive. Company F, N. G. H., in silent bay onet drill. A circular panorama of the bathing beach at WTakiki. . Standing surf-board riders at Wal kiki beach'. On the float at Waikiki beach. Landing passengers at Mahukona, Hawaii.
