T., JULY 21, 1K0. AM the still-born political booms in the States have been more or less tmricd. There are any number of honest men in the coontry. bat they do not always mfMMga to slide into office. of the Rio will introduce Hawaii to its first torchlight procession. Get ready to whoop her up. Local Republican clubs should for the reception home of the deiagatafi to the Philadelphia convention oa Thursday next. - The law that was good enough rgatast the Home Bakery does not teeiH to apply to King street restaurants. Is it possible that some offi.Ials favorite restaurants? High Sheriff' Brown seems to construe the law one way on King street and In another out Walkik: way. Indeed, the H'gh Sheriff seems to apply the law "in spots," probably according to his own sweet will. If an Interpreter of the Simian language is to become an attache of the Hawaiian courts an unusually high per t'jem will probably be demanded. Until Judge Wilcox unearthed Officer Hawaiian as an expert Simian linguist, it was supposed that Professor Gainer, tho French savant, was the only man capable of Interpreting monkey Hugo. The signal corps of the army has shipped from New York city fifty miles of deep Bea cable and four miles of s"horo cable to Manila, where it will be used by the chief signal officer of the division of the Philippines. This would indicate 'that the Hag has gone across the Pacific to stay, and in due season the Constitution will follow it; just as soon as the exigencies of military necessities will admit. The funeral of eighty victims of the appalling marine fire at Hoboken. N. J., must have been a most pathetic scene. Those eighty bodies were laid Into one grave, with all the -ceremony and honors that Uie world can pay its heroic dead. While they are at rest, the authorities should leave untried no effort to place the responsibility for .o great a catastrophe where it belongs, ifj indeed, there is-a human responsibility. A rich stream of gold is flowing out of Alaska into the American mints. It is acquired, however, at the cost of indoscrlbabic hardships and many human lives. But that is the story of tho early days of every mining camp tho world evor saw. When the early rush subsides, order and cheaper methods will follow, and Alaska will be a great producer of the auriferous metal when the argonauts of will all have passed over tho last divide. The delegates from Hawaii to the first Republican National Convention will have a magnificent welcome home. The city and, surrounding country will be brilliantly illuminated, and business places and residences generally should bo handsomely decorated. The delegates returning from both of the great national conventions should be welcomed homo in the heartiest possible manner. Their mission to the mainland was our first tangible participation In". tho shaping of the destiny of the great Republic of which Hawaii is cow a member. Both parties were worthily represented at Philadelphia j allow another to commit the same of-and at Kansas City, and distinguished fenso Ith perfect immunity, if not tho honors were accorded them by both - conventions. It was .not wholly for the members of the delegations, however, that these honors were intended, but they were to be construed as a tribute by the rest of the Nation to the baby Territory. Our delegates acquitted themselves honorably, and their home should take the form of a demonstration that will leave no doubt of the sentiment of the people on this point Let their welcome home be a bumper. The ordinary layman, who has beeu watching the operations la South Af- trlca, has been forced to the conclusion fc.Oput Lord Kitchener in the background -to belittle, perhaps, the Sirdar's work and certainly to hold him in positions offering little opportunity for his dashing methods. Our own Julian Ralph has done credit to the hero of Obdur&m, and now a military comtributor to Blackwoodis Magailse, who has beea Mipplylsg cowtaests on Uie war operations la South Africa, has eoe interesting reaurks a Lord Kitcheaer's work at the froat, showlug the fee had to encounter aai'kew he met then.

TBOriC AX- PBOETCTS The Republican has repeatedly called attention to the value of diversified industries for Hawaii and the large in comes to be secured from the raising ci tropical, inn is ana winter vegjctacies for the markets of the mainland. The monpv value nf these srtipls nnnnallr ! t imported into the United States Is so enormous that it Is almost beyond human comprehension. Some idea of what this trade amounts to may be had from thq.follawing.edltorial In the last number of the New York Marine Jour-pal: "When It Is considered that the of the United States pay abo.it il .000.000 a day for various tropical products, all or nearly all of which can be grown in our new island acquisitions, it will be seen that those territories are destined to derive enormous advantages from their closer relationship with .this country. Our imports of tropical products for the ten months ending with April last amounted to more than $300,000,000, and it is morally certain that they will reach fully 1365.000,000 for the fiscal year now closing. With our markets open to them, it is evident that the people of the newly acquired Islands have every- thine to gain and nothing to lose through a permanent and more inti mate association with the United States." Think what this means, almost $1,000,000 a day for the products of tropical countries. If the land owners nf Hawaii will but take hold of the subject they can supply a very large portion of this demand. Tropical products can be produced here that when ence in bearing condition will return profits far in excess of any ever dreamed of from the cultivation of sugar cane. A RIDICULOUS ATTITUDE. For several days The Republican has been asking High Sheriff Brown why be permitted the proprietor of a King street restaurant to furnish his patrons liquors in open and notorious violation of the law. The high and mighty High Sheriff has become so accustomed to considering himself above the people and wholly unanswerable to them for his actions that he has refused to notice the queries, going upon the principle so long In vogue in Hawaii, that it was none of the people's business what the public servants did But at last the great man has opened Lis mouth, and, as Tom Reed said of a distinguished gentleman from Tennessee on one occasion, extracted from tha sum total of human knowledge, when he did so. In an interview published in a morning contemporary yesterday the High Sheriff said that it was the province of the Collector of Internal Revenue to say whether .or not the proprietor of the restaurant sold liquor; that if the collector . did so decide and a United States license was taken out, then, and then only, would it be time for the HiglfSherlff to act "When it'j up to me," said the High Sheriff, "I will know what to do. It is first in the rands of Mr Haywood. If he sees fit to impose a tax all well and good." This is the most nonsensical sophistry we have ever seen used to bolster up a false position. According to this, the High Sheriff has no right or authority to raid the blind tigers selling liquor at Waiklki until they have first secured a United States license from Collector Hiywood. The Republican would like to ask the High Sheriff how many places his police force has raided in the last three weeks that have had a United States retail liquor license. Did Buchanan have one? Did Gardner I ave one? or any of the others recently arrested? By what right did he raid these places, if the reasons he sets forth for not stopping the open and notorious violation of the law on King street hold food? Is there anything in Sec. 441 of the Penal Code that says he shall arrest one man for a certain offense and rrotection of his department of the government? The Republican suggests In all kindness to the Mr. High Sheriff that he will find it mighty good policy to stop this winking at open violation of the law and get right down to an honest tasls of enforcing the law equally as strictly to fiie rich restaurant keeper as to the poor devils who run a blind tiger. One Is as vile as the other In the eyes of the law. Empress Dowager's Latest Stand. SHANGHAI. July 10.
