Tiie news from .Japan that a plot has been discovered on the part of anarchists to assassinate the Emperor may be taken with a grain of salt. It is inconceivable that any subject of the Emperor, fanatical as he might be politically, would plot against the life of his ruler, the apotheosized of the nation. The publication of the report is probably an inspired one, emanating from governmental circles to turn the sympathies of the people against the radical socialism developing in the main Japanese cities. For some weeks the Japanese press has been filled with vague allusions to the wholesale arrests being made among the socialists and hints have been thrown out that socialism has been replaced in some circles by anarchism, with members making bombs and preaching the destruction of ministers and legislators. So many arrests have been made and so active have been the police against the known socialists that the people were beginning to murmur and regard the arrested ones as martyrs. It is probable almost a certainty in the opinion of some of the leaders among the thinking Japanese of Honolulu that the statement that it has been the Emperor himself that the anarchists were after has been given out to check the sympathy of the people for the socialists and to bring about a revul sion of feeling against them. : Eepresentative Tawney, who was defeated at the Minnesota primaries for reelection, has served in eight congresses, from the fifty-third to the sixty-first, inclusive. He was vice-chairman of the Republican campaign committee in 190(5 and has been chairman of the appropriat ions committee of the house. At the present time he is working out a plan whereby economy in administration may be effected, his main idea being that all appropriations should be central ized in one committee, instead of being spread out through seven appropriating committees as at present. "Portuguese or Porto Rieans ? Which?" This should be the. question pounded into the ears of the voters from now on until the end of the campaign. Once the eyes of the Hawaiian are opened to the true conditions which the success of MeCandless would bring about and the Link will be not only missing on election day but even the sound of his voice will have evaporated.. Xot even the squeal will remain. The majority for Kuhio cannot be too big. Mainlanders must be shown in no unmistakable way. that Hawaii is not to be fooled by purely demagogic tactics. Our next door neighbor on the west is Japan and for this reason, if no other; the request made through The Advertiser by Mr. Sheba, on behalf of his countrymen, addressed to those here able to aid the Japanese flood sufferers, is certainly not out of place. 'Friends and relatives of many' of the' Japanese sufferers have helped in creating the wealth of Hawaii and a little bit of that wealth to relieve hunger and suffering can 'well' be spared. That Hawaii will do her share in holding -out a helping hand 19 not to be doubted. . It is to be hoped that when the Maui Republicans select their legislative ticket they will include among the candidates for the house the name of M." P. "Waiwaiole. Mr. "Waiwaiole was one of the most efficient members of the last house, 'a man who did not devote all his energies to talking and who could always be depended upon to vote 'on the side of justice and common sense, nis election did Maui credit and his. reelection, -should he desire, another term, 13 due hfm. ' "'Link MeC'andless, one of our presumptive delegates to congress" is the way one of our rural contemporaries -puts it. ' The accent should go on the "presumptive" rather than on the "delegates," however. Lahaina advices do not state whether it was rough passage or MeCandless' ideas on immigration that made the passengers s.ick on the Mauna Kea this week. The Springfield Republican and Archbishop Ireland will be full-fledged members of the Ananias Club before evening. Cholera has arrived in Kobe. Vigilance should be used to see that it gets no closer to Honolulu.

This statement , of "Mr. Storer distorts what was evidently an expression of deep personal regard and respect for an individual into what is in substance a request for his advance ment as a member of an ecclesiastical organization. The late President never made such a request.' "As for Mr. Storer 's assertion tiat I authorized him to make such a State ment as he says he was authorized - to make to the Pope, it is untrue. I gave him no such authorization. "I never received from him any let ter giving any such account of his visit to the Vatican." On Saturday Evening Next, September 24 Delegate Kuhio Will Speak .. , .

Gro- UNIFORM IDEALS IN DANCING PROPOSED cerv trucks sometimes stick fast in the CCpntinued from Page One.) The new light thrown on the old row by the. Republican consists of 9 num iber of. extracts from the letters of Archbishop Ireland, written during 1903 and 19()4, in which frequent references are made to interviews between the writer and the President and in which the direct claim is made that the Presi dent told the writer that he had com missioned Ambassador Storer to act as an envoy to the Pope on the writer's (Ireland's) behalf. Colonel Roosevelt, during his presi dency and sinee has always denied hav ing taken any part in attempting to secure promotion for Archbishop Ire land, stating in interviews and official letters that whatever impression the Storors had received that he wanted anything done by the ambassador for the archbishop must have come from statements of private friendship the President had f..r the church dignitary. The active hostilities between the former President and the Storers began in December, 19' id. when the recalled ambassador issued a letter charging the Pr.-r-ident with unfairness and with putting a false light on the circum stances surrr'jundmg his recall. In reply, President Roosevelt issued a pamphlet denying IStorer's charges. Th's pamphlet contained the following paragraphs : 'The assertion that in any private conversation I took an opposite position from that which I was repeatedly ex pressing in writing is not only an un truth, but an absurd untruth. "Mr. Storer asserts that he nnd Mrs. Storer and various other people, after conversations with me. put down memo randa as to what :.ev remembered I had said. If such action was taken, it was. of cour-e, simply dishonorable." " M.r. Storer asserts that President McKinley commissioned a gentleman to ask (of the Pope) the appointment of Archbishop Ireland as cardinal.

While a conference of eight is settling the theories of British government, and orher conferences are discussing all kinds of solemn subjects -with the ob ject of reforming the world and human nature, an important affair has taken place at thfr Hotel Cecil, an interna tional conference of dancing masters. The representatives of seventeen countries assembled to draw up new laws regulating the art and status of this noble and beneficent profes sion. They were not concerned with the invention and adoption of any new dances, or with any local interests. In the words of their vice-president, Mr. Crompton, they deliberated upon "dancing as a national art, so that an absolute unison and harmony of method, of time, and of style may reign through out the civilized world." . Standards, and Ideals. That is to say, if a man has learned to waltz in Suburba Londinium he should find himself at ease in the ball rooms of Paris; if he has acquired the polka in a like manner he should be able to keep time with the sprightly maidens of Vienna, Rome or Naples; if he has scored a triumph at one of the British spas he should be. able to get partners at once in Berlin or Baden Baden. The object of the present con ference is to form standards and ideals of dancing which shall be universal.. At present there is great diversity in the style and time of dances In various countries.' In' England, for in stance; the waltz is" a slowand-langor-ous measure in which couples revolve as in a dream. At Boulogne-sur-Mer the waltz is passionate, vehement and swift m its emotional expression. In Berlin, Vienna. St. Petersburg ' and other capitals of "Europe the delicious dance varies from a short, sharp step, brisk and invigorating, to a mazv w-hirlmg ecstasy of almost oriental luxuriance. Them is, therefore,' a dis tinct need of standardization, sav fhee dancing masters. r But these professors of Terpsichore in conference had other matters to dis cuss of even more importance to civiliz ed lite. As they truly say, life without iane,ng is is not life. Their great ambition is to make dancing compulsory in all schools and colleges, so that' a man who can not dance shall not be regarded as an educated person. Its Moral Importance. Mr. Crompton. in an interview, point- .nee of sue "a rWorm P Prt- Dancing." ie said, "gives a man a power of personality which otherwise he does not posse?.
