WHERE BUSINESS COMBINES WITH POLITICS. Intelligent voters should review the present political situation from a busi ness standpoint. Two years ago the voters elected a Democratic mayor and one Iemocr:it ie supervisor to work with six Republican supervisors. The result was a tying up of the business of the municipality for months while the execu tive and administrative branches went to law to settle questions of patronage. Later, in the carrying out of petty political schemes, many more weeks were lost wl.-le the 1 -moc-at ie mayor, assisted by his henchman on the board and some runt Republicans fought the inauguration of a modern telephone system. The record of the present administration, in fact, has been one of petty squab bles, while the important work of the city, ys allowed to slide. Today the voters have an opportunity of electing a mayor and a board the members of which will work in harmony. Harmony at the formative period in Honolulu's history is essential to progress. The Democratic nominee for the mayoralty is the same who has never once during his term developed a constructive idea and who has used the time he has been p:ti;l for out of all proportion to its worth to laying the wires for his continuation in office. He has made a travesty of his position and a laughing stock of himself. He has used accident to hold back all suggested progress and has been an expense without being an ornament. " The Democratic nominees for the board are, with one or two exceptions, unknown in business circles. If they have any ideas above the level of a luau, they have kept them heretofore carefully concealed. The Republicans have nominated for the board seven fairly representative men. They are men who have been in the public eye and from whom what may be expected is known. The party's nominee for mayor shines in compari son with his Democratic opponent. To elect a Democratic mayor and a Republican board is to invite a repeti tion of the past two pitiable years of wasted opxortnnity; to elect a Republican mayor and a board with a majority of Democrats is to repeat in another the folly of 190S. . Common sense demands that Honolulu be given a government under which it can progress according to the golden opportunities at hand. Business sense demands that the board be one in which harmony may prevail. Honolulu's business should not be sidetracked for lilliputian ideas of personal aggrandize ment, nor should it be made secondary to the personal predilections of the voters. Man for man the Republican " ticket for mayor and board of supervisors is superior to that offered by the Democrats and for the best good of Honolulu that ticket should be supported straight. Business considerations require it. With the individual city offices, the voter may without imperiling the harmony of the administration, select the men they deem best fitted for the particular positions. If the Democratic nominee ,for the position of city clerk be thought better than the Republican nominee which he is not his election would not disturb affairs in general; if the voters regard R. W. Shingle as a better man for treasurer than R. II. Trent, as the majority do, his election will come on his own merits, not because of the effect it might have on the administration, because it would have none; if the electorate is foolish enough to turn Bicknell out of office to replace him by Anderson, the effect would be altogether on the one office ond would simply reflect on the intelligence of the majority . vthout muddling the general governmental scheme; if it is thought best to replace the present city attorney by one whom a grand jury would not find it necessary to bar out because he could not be trusted to live up to his oath of office and against whom the finger of suspicion is continually pointed, the election of W. W. Thayer would not and need not be regarded as a distinct party loss to the Republicans. The election of one supervisor, or. wo'ce yet, the reelection of Mayor Fern, would be serious, however. The mayor and board must be one in, idea and action to produce the best result, and this is a business axiom as much as, or even more than, it is a political one. When the Republican candidates for supervisor make their initial appear ances on Saturday niglrt, let us hope they will be able to outline some definite ideas they have for helping create a Greater Honolulu. Tf they only allow the audience to take it for granted that they are true Republicans, ready to support the ticket from top to bottom and consumed with an undying desire to do their duty and such like platitudes and time-killers, and get down to tacks on what they propose to do when elected, it will not only be a great innovation but a great relief. Heretofore, with few exceptions, the political rallies in Honolulu have been loner on noise and short on logic. It is not at all strange that Roosevelt is daily becoming more and mora of an insurgent. "With each insurgent victory, the former President gets closer and closer, which shows that he is not nearly as impulsive as he would like the world to believe. "While opium is generally regarded as a soporific, it has onlv to be men tioned to the district attornev to make him wide awake. BIG HAUL MADE OF SMUGGLED OPIUM (Continued from Page One.)

AALA PARK, AT EIGHT O'CLOCK, SATURDAY EVENING Letters From The People .SPONGE INFORMATION WANTED. Editor Advertiser. Whilst swimming and diving in the sea at Punaluu in this district of Kan recently. I discovered that sponges in considerable quantities were growing on the rocks a few feet beneath the surface of the water. Hav ing never met with these animals pre viously though 1 have visited most of the Islands of tne Hawaiian archi pelago, I removed some of them aud later endeavored to cure them; but 'fail ed owing to lack, of accurate knowledge concerning the preparatory proccduie, of which i could find no account in the works at my disposal. Since then, I have often wondered how it was that such an important ' industrv as that of sponge-growing should have been neg lected on these- Islands, and my sur prisv was increased the other day, on receiving a letter from. California, which demonstrates how great an inter est is taken in Hawaiian affairs at the 'oust.
