The office that is weking the man
wouldn't have much show in Hawaii.
Uncle Sam is drawing a pretty close
line on foreign steemsblne, much to
the discontent of the latter.
Justice and guns are again predominant
in Kentucky. Look out for trouble
when the Goebel murderers are
put on trial.
There will be something of a contrast
between the rousing republican
rally tonight and the democratic fiasco
of last Wednesday night.
It begins to look as though the
opponents of municipal government
were about as numerous as the
in Massachusetts. There
are just enough of them, to coyote like,
set up and howl.
Meantime, it is confidently asserted
that the young Emperor of China is
still alive. But he might as well be
dead, so long as tho Dowager Empress
is alive and well and keeps slashing
around the imperial palace with poison
up hor absurdedly large sleeves.
It is the clearly-defined idea of the
average Hawaiian politician engaged
in multiplying offices that one of his
cardinal duties is to have an Inspector
appointed for everything that is liable
to be inspected before it is used. This
is a snap for office-chasing fellows, but
a little hard on the taxpayers.
Why should a plumbing inspector b?
paid $3,000 a year for his work In Honolulu,
when cities like San Francisco
and Donvor can get tho very best men
in the trade for $1,800 a year, and glad
they are to get the place at that salary,
too. Official salaries are being overdone
The Republican publishes in another
column this morning a communication
upon tho homestead question. The
writer, who is one of the substantial
business men of this city, presents
some good reasons for action by the
coming Legislature looking to the
adoption of a fair homestead law that
will insure the cultivation of the land
by actual bona fide settlers and the
prevention of its falling into the hands
of large companies and speculators.
Small farms and intonse cultivation is
what is most needed In Hawaii to
make the Territory reach the development
it is capable of, and any legislation
that will help on to this end
should receive the most careful attention
of the people.
The Knights of the Royal Arch, com1
prised entirely of liquor men, is rap-Idly
growing In tho States. The order
is secret and fraternal in its nature,
and Its membership is confined exclusively
to persons engaged in the
liquor trade, Including all branches,
distillers, brewers, wine dealers, wholesalers,
retailers and employes. The organization
was started two years ago
in Hot Springs, Ark., by twelve men,
and since that timo has grown to
.embrace more than 100,000 members
according to the reports submitted at
the last national convention held in
May. The order came Into being because
most of tho fraternal and secret
societies have ostracized and excluded
persons engaged In the liquor traffic.
It Is quite likely the order will take
some hand in sectional politics, especially
where opposition to the liquor
question may bo in the field.
Australia, too, is making a fight
against the dread disease, consumption, j
At a recent meeting of the Board of
Health of Sydney, this subject was the
uppermost one. The views of the National
Association for the Prevention
of Consumption were clearly put forward
by Dr. Malcolm Morris, who emphasized
the State aspect of tho subject,
i.e.. the prevention or eradication
of the tuberculosis amongst cattle by
a careful use of the tuberculin test.
-with subsequent isolation and destruction
of those cattle that react Meanwhile,
all milk should be sterilized
being used as food, and the S3le
of infected meat strictly regulated.
Open-air sanatoria for the treatment
of conaumptioB. it was contended,
should be established on the lines
on the Continent, as it is now
generally agreed that such institutions
have many advantages. The results
obtained from sanatorium treatment so
far appear to be highly satisfactory
about a fourth of the patients being
practically cured, and the rest much
Improved and relieved. The discussion
pf the subject which is given In de- j
tail In the Evening News, shows that
Australia is very rnach in earnest on
this subject and that its physicians
are tfcoroHghiy p to date.
THE CAKAL MUST RE BUILT.
The urgent need of the
canal Is again pointed out to the world
by the trouble in China. This t'me
not simply the United States realizes
what the absence of the canal means.
but the nations of Europe ire having
it plainly brought home to tbra.
Just at present both Germany and the
United States are purchasing coal and
horses in the east for to
China for the use of their armies ?nd
The latest advices from the mainland
were to the effect that Germany bad
chartered a number of vessels itow
in American waters belonging to Ger
man citizens. Some of these are Being
loaded with coal for the navy on the
China station, and ia oraer to
their destination will be compelled to
make the long voyage around the horn.
One of the largest vessels charter id is
to load 7,509 tons of coal at Newport
News and go from thence to San Fran
cisco, a distance of 15,000 miles, and
at the latter city take on horses for
the use of the array. Then she must
sail another 5009 miles before reaching
Vessels are loading coal at the sime
port off the mouth of the Chesapeake
which will likewise make the long ufp
around the horn. The United Staus is
better provided in the shipment of
horses, as they can be carried an ess
the country on railroads and loaded en
transports at any of the Pacific poits.
"Were the Nicaragua canal constructed
the voyage of 15.000 miles around
the horn would be shortened to a voyage
of less than 5.000 miles, and the reduction
in the time of passage would
be seventy per cent.
Congress cannot afford to play politics
any longer in regard to the Nicaragua
Canal. The Interests of the
country demand that It be built rnd
built at once. The time to use the
canal as a football on the field of
has passed. It is now a pressing
national need that must be met and
provided for and that at once.
In a very able communication in a
morning contemporary Anna Alward
Eames presents many excellent reasons
for the establishment of municipal
government in Honolulu. She
calls attention to the need of straightening,
widening and extending streets
under some uniform system as has
been carried out in Paris; the advantages
of a public library under municipal
control, and numeious other good
points in favor of what, a majoriity of
the people realize, is a necessity for
Honolulu. She says among other good
"In constructing a charter for Honolulu
it is extremely important that
the code shall be formed on liberal
lines. There is no more safe, natural
or healthful way for charter sentiment
to grow than by agitation. Women's
clubs, federations of school teachers,
chambers of commerce, civic leagues,
mercantile associations in American
cities study the charters of the great
municipalities, to the end of crystallizing
the ideas for which representation
is-desired on the board of freeholders
who frame the charter."
This Is exactly in line with the agitation
The Republican is making in
behalf of municipal government. AVe
believe the subject cannot be too thor
oughly discussed by the people. The
charter must be drawn on broad and
liberal grounds, and the suggestion
that women's clubs, school teachers'
associations, the civic federation,
chamber of commerce and other associations
discuss the matler thoroughly
is a good one. Municipal government
is bound to come, and come soon,
hence it is best for the thinking people
to give it their attention and see to
It that a charter is framed under which
Honolulu shall become the great and
beautiful city that her position in the
Pacific entitles her to.
Homestead Laws Needed.
To the Editor of The Republican:0
Sir: "Homesteader," in your issue
of July 31, broaches a subject which no
doubt will have the serious consider
ation ot the Legislature soon to reelected,
no matter what its political
complexion may be.
The homestead laws of this country
have never accomplished tho objects
and purposes for which the name
stands as a synonym. Aside from Its
many onerous provisions curtailing occupation
by bona fide settlers, the
whole act teems with legal phraseology
that would test the capacity ?t
the average lawyer to determine its
exact sccpe or meaning.
In operation, the act is an absolute
failure, and I challenge the proof of
any case, where a bona fide homesteader
(within, the meaning of said
term) has lived on his lands and gained
his entire support therefrom. The reverse
will be found the rule, and in
some cases teven such as where a
breach of the law was committed in
an overweening attempt to see how far
law could be without someone
going to jail) it is said that very
little cultivation of the land isgoingon.

There are commercial conditions
that are inseparable form inauguration
of a successful scheme for homestead

mentioned the carrying of products and
charges therefor, the marketing of
such products at centers of consumption
and the temporary elimination of
outside competition in the home market
until industries can be established.
These are all matters that were In
large measure ignored in the past. Successful
small farming will never become
established in our midst until

Approves of the Canteen.
(From the Army and Navy Register.)
Army, officers are much Interested In
an address delivered by Rev. Dr. Hamlin,
pastor of the Church of the Covenant,
before a number of soldiers at
Fort Meyer, Va., recently. The hall
was crowded with enlisted men and
their families, and strict attention was
paid to the minister's remarks. Referring
to the army canteen, he said,
"I am a trustee of the Young People's
Society of Christian Endeavor,
but speak now as an individual, as the
society Is not allowed to Interfere with
anything pertaining to governmental
regulations. No doubt some members
of the society are opposed to the canteen
and some are in favor of it. I believe
the canteen is a promoter of temperance,
but does not promote total
abstinence and is a great improvement
over previous conditions. I do not
think the canteen is perfect, and I
think I can improve it. It has improved
the conditions of the soldier,
morally and materially. Under existing
conditions at army posts I believe
tho canteen is a good thing and a
great benefit to soldiers."
These remarks were listened to with
great satisfaction by the officers and
soldiers present. A prominent army
officer, discussing Dr. Hamlin's remarks,
"That so distinguished a clerical
should publicly declare an individual
approval of the canteen, and that, too.
speaking from his own knowledge, and
in a sober, dignified spirit, is to me
strong proof that after a while cue
good showing in favor of temperance
and order that the canteen has done
and will do will be recognized by the
entire country. If only ministers and
zealous temperance people understood
the Incalculable good being done by
the canteen they ould not denounce
it as a curse; they would proclaim it
as a blessing."
