The Tacoma Ledger makes the following
pertinent comment on the presence
of delegates from Hawaii at the
Democratic National Convention:
"Delegates from Hawaii sat in the Republican
National Convention and others
will attend the Democratic convention.
The Hawalians were warmly welcomed
at Philadelphia, but If the
Democrats are consistent they will receive
the cold shoulder at Kansas City.
These delegates from our recent acquisition
represent expansion, which is so
utterly opposed by Bryan Democrats,
although all expansion of territory previous
to that which acquired Hawaii
came under Democratic administrations.
The Democratic policy was reversed
when Grover Cleveland hauled
down the American flag in Honolulu.
Just how the Democratic anti-expansionists
will receive the Hawalians remains
to be seen. These delegates are
Democrats because President Cleveland
approved of a monarchy and did his
best to maintain it, and these views are
also out of joint with those ol the anti-imperialists
who will gather at the
AN IMPOTENT EXCUSE.
"If we had the evidence we would
proceed in the case." said High Sheriff
Brown to a Republican reporter Friday
night, in explaining his failure to
make any move towards prohibiting
the illegal sale of liquors in the Grill
restaurant on King street- Then the
High Sheriff -went on to say: "The
way in which liquor is furnished patrons
of the Grill I do not believe constitutes
a sale, tho -liquor being purchased
at a regularly licensed saloon."
We would like to ask you, Mr. High
Sheriff, is It a part of your duty to interpret
the law or is that a matter for
the courts? Does the license for tho
saloon that the Grill secures its liquors
from say that it may sell liquor at two
places In the city, or does it specifically
name the premises where liquors may
be sold as the law requires that all
licenses .shall do?
And, too, Mr. High Sheriff, does the
license for this particular saloon say
that tho proprietor of It shall have the
privilege of selling liquors on Sunday
or between the hours of 11:30 p. m.
and 5:30 a. m.? Is it, then, so very difficult
for you to secure evidence of the
fact that -the Grill sells liquors to its
customers on Sundays and between
midnight and 5 o'clock in the morning?
If so, then you are utterly unfit to be
an officer of tho law, for Tho Republican
has had no trouble in securing evidence
to this effect.
Come, now, Mr. High Sheriff, why
don't you honestly declare that this is
a case of a man with a pull, who can
violate the law as he pleases, and it
The Republican or anyone else who believes
the law should be honestly enforced
for all alike don't like It, "they

HOW THEY-LOVE EAWAHANS.
An idea of the love of the Democrats
of the mainland for the Hawalians can
be gleaned from the following in the
New York Herald of July 7. In describing
the Insertion of the free-saver
plank in the Democratic platform,
the Herald said:
"Mr. Baughman of Maryland, who
was one of the most efficient leaders of
the fight against 16 to 1, was particularly
exasperated -by the action of the
Hawaiian delegate. He had been with
Mr. Wise during much of the night and
had understood that he was one of the
firmest of the conservative men. .
"'It was a great fight,' said Mr.
Baughman, 'and we were beaten by a
Hawaiian. Just think of it! By a Hawaiian!'
"And we were beaten by a Hawaiian!
Just think of it! By a Hawaiian," declared
Mr. Baughman, and he but echo
ed the sentiments of hundreds of Eastern
delegates to the convention. Oh,
yes; the Democrats just love the
in a horn.
Tho Trouble With. China.
(From tho New Orleans Picayune.)
If the Chinese were an expansive
people, they would send their Confucius
missionaries to this country to
make converts and back them up with
guns. But for centuries they have developed
the dull and heathenish habits
of minding their own business.
Soma Political Pointers.
Says the Hilo Tribune: "There Is little
agitation in political circles at present,
aad though no doubt the pipes are
being laid, there is little open electioneering.
It is currently reported that
John Brown will thh for the lower
house on the Independent Democratic
ticket, from Hilo, and there Is little
doubt that he will pull the solid Hawaiian
xote. A. B. Loebenstein will
probably be a candidate for the upper
house, aad he has assurances of backing
in influential qaarters, and is per--
haps the oaly haole who can depend
ypon the Hawalians quite generally for
support. In Kau his, name also stood
at the head of- a list of four decided
upon at a mass meeting as the men
who should be choeea for the Senate
from this Island."
