As the County election is now
coming round Diamond Head the
Republicans had better open their

misapprehension In hiB letter to
The Independent Representative
Wright referred to the large gang
of Japanese working on the Waialae
rond under a Japaneso supervisor
and not to the gang of citizen labor
ers at work in Eomoiliili
The proposal of Mr Thomas one
of the settlers at Wahiawa to forest
a seotion of waste land near the
Colony and turn it over to the Gov
ernment at tho end of twenty years
should not be passed lightly If the
land is not more valuable for settle
ment or other purposes aud Mr
Thomas intends to forest it free of
charge and without hope of advan
tage lo himself save of establishing
a wood supply near the oolony
for the future wo think the scheme
a good one But if Air Thomas pur
poses raising and outting wood for
market he should oertainly pay a
reasonable rentolon the land
If the local stevedores will stick
to their preieut plan there will soon
be no Japanese labor employed on
the waterfront Tho San Franoisoo
stevedores have sent word that they
will oo operate with their local fel
lows and will refuse to touoh any
vessel at San Frsnoiaco that may
have been loaded by Japanese hero
That aation would tie up almost
any vessel such as tho San
Franoisoo Union is praotio
ally master of the situation
If the San Francisco men could be
induced to agree not to load a vessel
that had been discharged here by
Japanese after duo and sufficient
notice the thing would be settled
Si Congressman McCleary and
other travelers have been frightened
away from here by exaggerated and
absurd stories bout the dengue
fever and armies of tourists have
halted inside the Golden Gateafraid
to come on Who was responsible
for these stories Shortly after the
appearance of the ailment lost Win
tor the Advertiser and Star publish
ed aolumn after column of sensation
al matter calculated lo frighten our
own people let alone the tourist
who is inherently leary of diseases
in the tropics These papers are to
be blamed aud condemned for the
false impressions that have gone
abroad and for any harm that has
been done
Things are looking dark iu WalL

big failures occurred yesterday and
the financial situation in tho east is
far from satisfactory This is tho

tariff and trust tactics havo brought
the oountry down to proaisoly tho
situation that obtained in 1892 8 A
panio is brewing and it will almost
surely come within the next twolve
months Roosevolt and the Repub

hayo such Hawaiianswho lack back

stand up for themselves go back on
us knowing that whatever we have
stated is true is to us most despic
able and that further they are
beneath consideration especially
when thoy have not the oourage to
stand forth and oppose the Siberian

too muoh of in this oountry and who
is playing them for obildron As re

tion with the Federated Trades
last evening there was a good deal
of talk soma of which was quite
warm although little was actually
accomplished The employers
agreed iu a half hearted way to
employ only citizen labor and tho
unions consented to pass rules en
couraging their members to pa
tronize only the stores of citizens
Most of the members expressed
themselves ai confident that if the
agreement were adhered to it
would go along woy toward ful
filling the purpose aimed at
