Residing In Hono ula
Tho Evolution of a Statesman
James Jinks was born in 51 and
when the bnbo nrrove
Tho wieo old neighbors toddled iu
and sat around the stove
And Baid thoy rebkoued that tho kid
would not be worth a blame
His father was n thrilling cuss his
mother was tho same
Thoy all agreed that Jinks heir was
boru to griel and woo
And thou they toddled out again the
monof Broken Bow
Tho baby grew and grow and grow
and throve and throve and throve
Until at manhoods high estate ho
gracofully orrove
Nono hotter knew to whittlo sticks
ortthlstle Belle Mahono
But if a friend suggested work hed
only weep and moau
The wise men shook thoir hoary
heads and said I told you so
Vhen Jiuks tho younger loafed
around the streets of Broken Bow
Ho took a farm at twenty one and
sowod a little grain
And raised the iluest crop of weeds
that ever graced tho plain
The burdock and the cookleburr and
jimson all took root
Tho only corn our hero raised was
on his ample foot
And thon he sadly realized that
farming wouldut go
Aud drifted back to loaf around tho
streets of Broken Bow
And then he bought a little sheet
and moulded thought a while
Tho kind of thought ho used to
mould made all his roadors smilo
And so they called beseeching him
to go to Dr Hay
And have his mental part repaired
and soldered right away
The Sheriff took his fountain pon
and closed his moral show
And once again ha loafed and loafed
all over Broken Bow
Ho got a little country school and
as a teachor taught
Ho took a littlo oross roads church
and as a preaoher praught
He tinkered for a month or two re
pairing ancient tins
Ho oponed up a barber shop aud
butohorod pooples chins
But failure roosted on his flag
over ho might go
And so at last he ouly loafed and
loafed at Brokon Bow
Aud as ho loafed ho talked a stroak
ns loafors always do
Ho said that Wall street kept him
poor and many others too
Ho know just how tho Qovorntnont
should run to do us good
Aud so ho talked and talked away
whilo other men sawod wood
Ho talked no long1 ho talked so loud
of ruin and of woo
That peoplo oame to think ho was
the sago of Brokon Bow
Wo follow his career no moro tho
rest you surely know
Tho man who failed at everything
mde money out of woo
Ho holps to run tho Government
and there nro folks around
Who say his great ambition is to run
it in tho ground
But still the wise men shako their
hoads aud say I told you so
And life a calm and poacoful stream
rolls on a Brokou Bow From the
Nowbraska Slate Journal
Who Is IU
Work for Mr Dolo
Tho timo has passed to discuss
Mr Doles titlo to tho oflico of Prosi
dont of tho HnWaiian Island How
evor opinions may diffor as to the
methods adopted by tho f ramers of
tho constitution under which Mr
Dolo is acting its faults havo boon
cured by proscription ho is Presi
dent do facto and must bo acknow
ledged as such by tho foroign world
His policy may now bo discussed as
if he held supremo powor by as irre
fragable a title as tho Emperor
William of Germany
It is thus in order to consider sor
iously his rocommondntion that the
Hawaiian Government Bhould lend
every effort to secure the laying of
a cable botwoon Honolulu and the
shoro of California If Mr Dole
and -his cabinet study the subject
with intelligence they will perceivo
that tho most promising way of lay
ing tho cable is to undertnko it as a
Hawaiian enterprise Tho United
States have dono thoir share iu sur
veying tho routo which tho cable
must follow the attempt to induce
Congress to appropriate four or Ave
millions to oomplote the enterprise
will almost certainly fail Porhaps
it would be a wise expenditure of
money But tho East is not yet ripe
for it And if Hawaii waits till a
bill passes Congress it will wait a
long time
On tho other hand thero is no
prospect that either Great Britain
or Canada will appropriate money
to lay a cable on a route which up
to this timo they have not thought
worth surveying Tho oxtouBion of
the Canadian Pacific oablo to Hono
lulus a project iu the dim and dis
tant future Canada cannot afford
tho monoy England has no direct
interest in the sohome
But there is no reason why the
Government of Hawaii should not
undertake the cable and offer to the
world an isuo of bonds to defray
tho cost As a financial proposition
tho bonds might not be a catch
But the advantages of tho cable
would be so manifest that capitalists
interested in tho islands might sub
scribe and it might bo possiblo to
make Congress see -that it would
py to sink a million or two to con
nect tha now naval station at Pearl
Harbor with San Francisco TJoro
are cable companies iu many parts
of tho world which might b induced
to undertake the enterprise on the
chances of disposing of tho bonds
to Governments which would bo
benefited by tho cable
If tho islands seem suro of a
stable government they ought to be
able to borrow iivo millions at a fair
rate of interest Thoy owe loss than
3000000 aud their incomo is nearly
-1000000 Thoy grow some 18000
000 worth of produop which is mer
chantable property overywhero A
modorato tax on the sugar planta
tions would yield a sum in excess of
any probable deficit in tho budget
of a cablo company
If tho Dole Administration will
apply to tho islands tho motto of
Italy Fara do bo It may find that
tho cable enterprise as not as im
practicable as it now seems S F
