Billlis the term applied by Hawaii
ans to Government Treasury war
rants issued by tho Auditor on the
Treasury for jthe payment of salaries
pay rolls etu Tho term in not a
new one but on old one long used
among inmates of tho Leper Settle
ment for their ration bills and cloth
ing njlowauoo In a sense tho term
is very appropriate speaking of tba
nresant situation after the war
rants have boon registered in the
Treasury they bearing five percent
interest per annum from tho date of
aueh registraticnthat the employees
and laborers nro skinned some of
whom work hard to earn their
wages in order to have Ibera cashed
But it received tho term from the
appearance of piece of paper bear
ing a oartain value whioh looks to
all appearances metaphorically like
a pieee ol skin and allegorically
like a shin sshamo of being treated
similar to flaying the skin of a labor
ers baok which peals off after work
ing in the hot sun or in the wet and
cold wBatherwhich anyone may take
as suit them best Otherwise it is
Billy tho Skinner or skin skinned
or skinner Anyhow it is tho skin
uioit way of doing business
We dont wish to appear in the

With regard to Judge Kepolkai
and his Republican coramittoes we
oaunot too soon forget the treat
ment he got from the Exooutive
Committee hero attho time he re
fusad to tender his resignation to
Governor Carter before tho latter
had become the Governor in fact
Whon he deoidsd not to resign this
arbitrary dictatorial politloal body
turned against him and for very
surety had no further ubo for him
not until there were some offices over
whioh ho had the sole departmental
rfght to dispense patronage then
ho quietly subsided as a true patty
man to the dictation of a commit
tee that once had no use whatever
for him Those who stood by him
worked and fought for him during
his hours of tribulation whon he
oould not oo unt any friends in his
partys ranks he east adrift and
quietly subsided and acquiesced in
the behest of that irresponsible
autooraoy and dictatorship And in
tho matter now open to him to act
independently he has again shown
himself to be what many havo al
ways thought of him that he lacked
something Once upon a timo not
very long ago he made somebody
eat crow and now he is about to do
tho same for himself Go it Judge
Wit We liM
The following tribute of the Dub
uque Telegraph to the Chicago
Ohroniele expresses our views res
pecting the Advertiser so complete
ly that we cheerfully give it It
is esteemed as the narrowest most
bigoted most unreasoning and
ablest disciple of predatory wealth
in the oountry It knows everything
nothing is bard or impossible to it
who disagrees with it is a liar a do
magogueor a bedraggled expounder
of anarchy It would snuff out the
life of everyone who opposas the de
signs of its hidden plutoaralio own
er and their vulture like vampire-
like parasitio elass of whioh he is
typically representative Tho
Chronicle is in its own estimation
impeooablo The opposition can
have not even the slightest element
of justioe on its side It is wrong
bll wrong and worse yet is slinking
through alleys in the dark with a
drawn atilletto or a cooked revolver
waiting as opportunity to ohoot the
first passer by though sheer lust of
murder
TOPICS OF THE DAY

Would it not be a wise plan to
get some of the overfed and over
paid pets of the Board of Health to
look around the Chinese hash houses

find opmothing of interest in the

unfortunate to be found with life
extinct in order that ho could reap
in tne magnificent sum of two dol

Tho practice of paying for jurors

Honolulu demands baieball and
it matters little who puts it up
Tho marlno playora of the Moilo
team are new here but thoy have
started out to give the city good
ball and they should be enoouroged
in placo of discouraged Can it be
possible that the Elks and the other
teams are foarful of tho result at the
end of the season 7
The deolsion of Judge De Bolt
yesterday in the Clark Henry
case agaiustlSwa and Oahu planta
tions in regard to Pearl Harbor is
far reaahing in offeet It declares
ipso facto that tho harbor is open
to navigation in that it rules that
all of tho conditions of dredgingelc
have been oomplied with Just bow
the United States courts will con
strue the matter is of course an
other quoslion r
The practical way of Bocurina
lowor passenger rotoB between hero
and San Franoisco is to offer busi
ness to any lino that will cut rates
to about 25a sum sufficient to covor
exponcea Any and all steamship
companies operating in this part of
the Pacific would jump at the pro
position and when tho reduction
waB made by one all would msko it
The power to regulate the matter is
as wo have pointed out before com
pletely in the bands of the people
of Honolulu
This should bi a busy month

the beginning The Mohiean is due
and from the Orient thero will
shortly arrive the Buffalo Vioksburg
Alabany and Annapolis These war
vessels together with the transports
that will arrive in tho meanwhile
will servo to keep things busy The
only caution no have to offer is that
the visitors be properly entertained
A pugiliitio and sports program
would not be out of order

It is certainly not the prese cither
Democratic or oonservatiyp Repub
lican Our observation has been
that tho public pulso of the country
is straightly in line with Democratia
success at tho coming oleation
Tho assertion that Roosevelt will
be the next President of the Uuited
States Boems to be and doubtless is
immensely ploaoing to the Repub
lican press of the Ucited Stales
But it must bo remembered that
tho people have a say aud from
present indications their say may
upset in a largo degree present
calculations The peoplo are tired
of Presidents who attompt to oarry
water on both shoulders They are
tired of loaders that protoud to op-
pore thn brigandish trusts and
esorotly encourage and abot those
trusts Tired of lenderB that oppress
