One of the things of the greatest importance to Hawaii in general, and to Ilawaiians in particular, accomplished at Washington by Kuhio during his three terms as delegate, has been the securing of appropriations under which the scientists of the nation, have been given the opportunity of studying the causes, cases and possible cures of leprosy at Kalawao, Molokai. It is true that the appropriations have been found insufficient for the scientists to carry on their great work for the benefit of all mankind as completely as they have desired, but the money for a leprosarium has been voted, some money for the carrying on of investigation work was voted and scientists were commissioned to seek for a cure for that which, heretofore, had ever been considered incurable. As a result of this, already it has been demonstrated that the world of science is on the brink of a great discovery. Applying what had been dis covered in the Philippines by Moses T. Clegg, Doctor Currie and Doctor Brincker hoff, of Hawaii, have made greater yrogress toward the discovery of a leprosy cure in the jiast year than all the scientists of the world in all time had accom plished before. It is too early to say that a cure for leprosy is within reach, but it is a fact that the scientists have now succeeded in covering the pre liminary steps leading toward that cure. Already Doctor Currie has announced that a vaccine has been prepared and is being experimented with on Molokai. It may be that the cure has already been discovered and only requires time for the demonstration. At the present time, the work at Kalawao has been suspended, owing to the exhaustion of the appropriation. It is hoped by the eager scientists, how ever, that Kuhio will be able to keep up his good work in securing needed appropriations and that the necessities of Molokai will be among the first things to be attended to by him upon his return to Washington. The interest of the whole world is centered in the experiments to be carried on at Molokai. There are few countries in which leprosy has not its victims and if as a result of the Molokai work a cure is found for this most dreadful of diseases, not only Ilawaiians but men and women of every race will have reason to rejoiee. It is necessary, of course, that there be money provided for this great work. That can be left to Kuhio, who has succeeded before and who will succeed again. CHINA'S ANTICHRISTIAN CAMPAIGN. Not long ago word came -to this country that the graduates of the Christian colleges in China were winning the highest government positions. This suc cess, or some other reason, it now appears, has aroused the enmity of the fol lowers of Confucius, and antiehristian measures are being adopted by the government which may embarrass the American schools and colleges there, says the Literary Digest, summing up the Chinese situation. While the Christian missionaries in China are not at this moment called upon to resist "unto blood," yet, according to the "Eighty-fifth Year-Book" of the Berlin Mis sionary Society, just issued The sentiment of the government is distinctly hostile to Christian ity. The Wai-Wu-pu, or Board of Foreign Affairs at Peking, has issued a decree forbidding any Chinese to found an independent church, or to collect any funds for the Church. A general desire seems to prevail that the extension of Christianity in China should be checked. These somewhat general and guarded statements are enlarged upon by the Kreuz Zeitung (Berlin), the organ of the Clericals, in which we read that Chi nese Christians, although still believers, dare not now make an open profession by going to public worship; that they find it impossible to obtain justice in the law courts, and yet they remain secretly stedfast in the faith. This paper continues: While these facts are in a measure encouraging, ,we can not at the same time fail to see that general opinion in China is hostile to Chris tianity and, after Christianity, to Buddhism. It certainly is more hostile than ever before. The teaching of Confucius forms the national re ligion and it is on the basis of this that China desires to institute ' political, commercial, and intellectual reforms, in short, to modernize the efforts of the reformers are directed. These reformers are there its people. "China for the Chinese," that is the goal toward which for not inclined to favor Christianity, and that the native Chinese who work as reactionaries are positively hostile to it is quite to be expect ed. The reformers are very willing to learn from the whites and the Christians, but they would like to employ the ltarning so acquired in the serviee of the national religious sentiment and, as far as possible, in opposition to the Caucasian world. They wish to avert the possi bility that Western civilization should supplant Chinese civilization, and Christianity take the place of Confucianism. They look forward to the day when China shall be completely free from European power, and every other foreign influence. Speaking of the faet that the graduates of the Punahou missionary colleges have been refused a right to vote at the election of members to the newly instituted Provincial Assemblies, the London Outlook observes: Almost all adult Chinese male Christian?, and the bulk of those non-Christians who have received modern education, are alumni of the missionary colleges; so it follows, in the first place, that Christians will be excluded from the earlier Aseemblies. That this in itself is regrettable will probably be conceded by all Europeans, not only by reason of the loss of a religious leaven, but particularly because social legislation likely to be introduced by foreign-trained members will not perhaps occur to those who have not had that advantageg. In other directions the effect is likely to be still more disquieting. The purpose of the decree is quite obviously to check the further multiplication of missionary colleges and schools, and to reduce promptlv the attendance at those alreadv established. WHATEVER HAPPENS, ROME SUFFERS. Tn the complex political situation in both Portugal and Spain only one flung seems to be agreed upon. That is. whatever party or faction happens to be in power, the Hoinan Catholic Church has to suffer. In Portugal, prior to the revolution, the government was engaged in a dispute with the Vatican and had already commenced to take vigorous action against the monastic orders; now, with that government crumbled, the new government takes even more drastic steps against the religions orders and the mobs destroy church property. In Spain, when t mo republicans undertook a revolution in Barcelona a year ago. the revolted turned their attention firt to the churches, nunneries and monasteries, desecrating altars, destroying church buildings a to the despicable length? hibiting the bodies along with a heavy hand and tried, endemned and hr of the enemies of the g o eminent did not he of the the dragging streets. alleged death. eminent toward th tate on t! expel the members of manv of the orders It is rather -ing recent events rnificant that there has f am and I'ortugai. - The Tokin diii lias discovered a new use for missionaries, school teachers and government official in .la pan's new territory of Korea.

The announcement on the part of Doctor Raymond, that he has left the Democratic party rather than submit to the rule or ruin dictation of Me Candless. is only a public declaration of what the great majority of the white Democrats are deciding privately. Doctor Raymond's manly declaration will probably be followed by public announcements on the part of others that they have renounced McC'andless and all his works. It is natural that this should be. Nothing in the Democratic platform, and nothing in any of the public utterances of the Democratic leaders affords any thinking Democrat any opportunity- or excuse for supporting the Democratic candidate who heads the ticket or any of the others who are lending him their support by appearing on the ticket with him. The Democratic platform is a jumble of irreconcilable ideas combined with the impossible and the demagogic. The various attempted explanations on the part of MeOandless have been more in the nature of insults to in telligence than appeals to reason. If there is any good reason why MeOandless should expect the support of what voters he is not paying, he has failed to mention it. One of the most flourishing countries on the American continent today is the Dominion of Canada. This is the result of recent immigration. Every year during the past five there have been hundreds of thousands of newcomers flocking into the Dominion. The result has been a necessity for tremendous railroad development, a great demand for manufactured goods, increased activ ity in all lines of business and more work for everyone, oldtime residents and newcomers alike. So great has become the demand for labor through the prosperity of immigration that the Canadian government has recently an nounced its willingness to suspend the alien contract labor laws in order that more wlte laborers may be brought into the country. As a result of immigra tion, wages have gone up and even then there are not enough men procurable for all the work there is to do. Immigration pays. POLITICAL LETTER Mv Dear Bovs: In less than five weeks th political campaign of 1910 will be ended. This year you have three elections to vote for a delegate to congress, to select the members of the new Igislature and to choose the county officials for the coming two years. It is difficult to determine which is the most important of the three elec tions. In the choice of a delegate you need a man competent to direet and influence thought and action towards this small and remote section of the United States. He must be a worker. In the legislature you need men who can amond or abolish bad laws, frame and pass wise ones. Whatever is done in the legislature is closely watched in Washington, so that you should guard against the election of radical and er ratic fanatics who may thoughtless' bring opprobrium upon the Territory and cheek its material and political ad vancement. For the management of your county affairs, you need the strong and upright candidates. Men who have made a success of their own business, and whose records are clean, are the safest to entrust with the management of your roads, the lighting of your city and the protection of your lives, homes and property. Because these last come more to your attention, and because they are pub licly discussed by your county officials in regular sessions, is probably the rea son why such great interest is taken this year in the county election, as the county officers are responsible for the expenditure of large sums of money for vour immediate benefit. You want that Canadian Bradstreet's. Announcement was made this week of the interesting faet that negotiations looking to the arrangement of a re ciprocity treaty between the United States and Canada will be begun short ly after President Taft returns to Washington in October. A preliminary step has been taken in the matter by the President in securing from Ambas sador Bryce a waiver of the formality of having the -negotiations conducted through the British Embassy. It ap pears that the subject was discussed between Mr. Taft and the Canadian Ab'.,nv ast 's.,rin wj,en the tariff NOW 15 THE TIME FOR All GOOD MEN To Come to the Aid of the Party in Making Victory One All Along the Line. - Work, and the hardest kind of work, will be exacted of all who profess to I be j'a: ranks , ... , ,.

You have no use for grafters, spendthrifts or .spoilsmen. You want no looting of the county treasury, no false auditing of the accounts, and no fake payrolls. You do not want to pay more of your money for mules, wagons, picks, shovels, rent, light, stationery, horses, buggies and automobiles than these articles can be bought .for in competition in the city markets. You want officials who are fearless enough to expose wrongdoing and honest enough not to practise it. Only a few years ago Link MeOand less said: "It is better to vote for a Republican delegate, because the Presi dent of the United States is a Repub lican, and in the United States con gress two-thirds of the members are Republicans." But now Link wants you to vote for a Democratic delegate to congress, and the only reason he can give is because he has changed the color of his political skin and wants to be the delegate. Again, Link was kind enough to warn us that "the Democratic party wants free trade," and if they came into power "it would not be long before you would see the lands formerly plant ed with cane and rice ruined"; also that "THE WAGES WILL CERTAIN LY BE REDUCED." Then Link was kind enough to say: ''This is a danger for us all. and a danger that we must look out for." Yes, boys, look out for the danger the danger of sending a Democrat to congress. Link said: "It is better to rote for a Republican delegate." So vote for Kuhio. YOUR POLITICAL PARENT. Reciprocity. agreement between the two countries was under consideration. The spirit in which the President would approach the subject was then clearly indicated by him in public statements, and the Canadian premier. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and other high officials of the Dominion government are understood to be in favor of the plan for a treaty. No de tails of the proposed negotiations ap pear to have been arranged as yet, but President Taft is said to entertain the hope that the diplomatic exchanges will be well under way by the time that congress convenes in December. It is not generally believed, however, lhat the negotiations will be brought to a speedy conchisfon. WORK ON TRACK LAYING AT ONCE Rapid Transit Will Start on King Street Before End of This Week.

WAS NOT TAKEN Sixteen out of the forty-two cases on the police court calendar 'yesterday morning were those of the gamblers caught at llonouliuli Saturday night by Chief McDuflie and his men. Not one, however, put in an appearance for the evil eye had been given to each and they were mightily scared. McDuflie has bought a brand-new camera, the best he could get for sev eral hundred dollars, and has institut ed a new procedure in police work. This with it. Saturday he took it down to llonouliuli with him, together with sev eral flashlight cartridges. After the raid was made the chief Vegan to look for his pictorial outfit tut found only his camera. The cartridges were a half mile away in the automobile. A little thing like this, however, has no effect on Chief McDuflie. The laws ef amateur photography cut no ice when the law of gambling is concerned, so the chief seized his camera and in a gruff voice ordered them to bunch up in the middle of the room, wikiwiki. The scared Celestials duly obeyed pnd the chief went through the paces, the camera shutter clicked ominously and lie and his staff walked off with highly satisfied airs. No picture was possible, but the gamblers failed to mmble. Next time the cartridges will not be left behind but as a start, for a start, the camera has worked pretty well. The Chinamen told their attorney ibout the picture taking and discreetly stayed away from court. Every man jack of them is now doubtless study ing the art of camera craft (between games at llonouliuli. 1TAFT AND ROOT HOLD CONFERENCE BEVERLY, Massachusetts, October 10. President Taf t and Senator Elihu Root of New York were in conference here today. There is imuTl speculation as to the result of their discussion, as it is thought that the political situation was one of the main subjects of the con ference. Root has long been one of the closest political associates of ex President Roosevelt, and important re sults mav follow his conference with Taft. AFTER FOURYEARS OF MISERY Cured by Lydia E.
