The Republican is mote quoted from en the mainland than all the balance of the Honolulu papers combined. Straws show which way the wind blows. Damm is the suggestive name of the German penman who engrossed commission as high chief. Mataafa, old as he is, may have many occasions in his career to recall the Scrivener's name. It takes time for old things to pass away, but the custom of publishing court orders in any other than the English language will soon pass away In Hawaii. Thanks to the vigorous Americanism of Judge Humphreys, the law saying that English shall be the language of the courts is made to mean something. It seems to be difficult for people and press to break away from .the high-sounding titles of the former picayune republic We still hear of "collector generals," "auditor and so on, and it seems to grieve some people that all the "ministers" have disappeared from tho capltol. All 5 old habits and customs die out slowly. There Is no doubt that Attorney General Dole's opinion to the high sheriff on tho question of keeping drays off Fort street Is founded on good law. it Is to be regretted that it Is so, but It Is a matter for greater regret thnt tho appeals to the draymen will probably bo of no avail. What Honolulu needs is a municipal government to regulate such matters. There seems to be a counter movement .among the old time clique heie to prevent the appointment of George D. Genr to the circuit judgeship, if possible. It Is altogether likely the effort will fall. Mr. Gear stands too high at the bar and has too many friends among public men In tho East to be sidetracked for a man of brief experience ct the law. It was nice of the German imperial governor of Samoa to confer the high chieftaincy on Mataafa with much "pomp and circumstance," but it was somewhat discouraging to inform the newly created high chief that by imperial decree the governor reserved to himself "all powers." The details of tho investment of Mataafa as chief of the tribes will be found in today's Republican. In a letter from Fresno, California, received in the last mall, enclosing a subscription for The Republican, the writer says he wants to learn something about Hawaii, as he expect to pay the Territory a visit In the near future and If he finds it satisfactory will locate here. The Republican trusts that hundreds more like the writer will become permanent resi dents of Hawaii. Australia's trouble does not ?eem to be with the Oceanic Steamship Company, but to take the .form of a grievance with the shipping laws of the United States. This Is unfortunate for the Colonies. Ther might readily adjust their differences with tot Oceanic company's management, with whose service they seem to be enamored, but they can st?rcely hope, to reshape America' shipping laws, which are founjai upon aiundamestal Principle of the Republic. On Tuesday morala last The Republican sAld: "Here's a chaace for the falsitylas Advertiser: If it caa show that it did aot Ue whet it Mid yesterday that The Repblieaa had take isterrlew with John Wis we will it may sane." That was on last Tuesday- morning, znark 70a, and as yet the Advertiser has made no attempt to secure, a donation of $109 for any. charitable .institution in HonoJeloi - .. . . . . . ' . .- is tnu oecaase tae Advertiser taxes no interest in the charitable institutions of the city or is it because the has been caught in another of Its lying statements? The nomber of ner trees and plants that Prof. Koebele, the state entomologist, has introduced Into Hawaii during his official career would astonish the people could they but see 3 list of them. These trees and plants have been drawn from all possible sources. But mainly from tropical and semi-tropical countries. Many of these have done well and would become useful .and valuable did the agriculturist only pake to their cultivation and care. In a report to the governor, Prof. Koebele will include a list of these Ireland plants and it is to be hoped that it will be printed and given general circulation. This work is too valuable and Important not to be put In form for preservation PSOFAUITY AS A NUISANCE. One of the anomalous conditions incidental to this era of suppression of puojic nuisances m clues is the apparent numerical Increase of the man who swears. As a rule, he Is found In all public places, and ready to denounce such nuisances, yet .oblivious of the fact that he himself constitutes one of the most offensive. This Is particularly true of Honolulu, where so large a part of the town lives out of doors. The most lamentable feature of the common use of profanity is not, however, that it finds its chief incentive in infirmity of temper or exceptional provocation. The offense would be far less noticeable were this trne. Profanity, as we know it, has become a thing of habit and falls as trippingly from the tongue of jest or of casual conversation as from that of rage. Familiarity has bred contempt alike for the right of others and for the .divine law. The man who swears is clad in fine apparel more often than in rags. He Is politically, socially or commercially distinguished, as well as obscure. He is both educated and illiterate. His note may be good for a million, or not good for a cent. He may be open-'' hearted or close-fisted; a man of many friends or a multitude of enemies. He may respect the sensibility of his wife or sister and disrespect a host of other refined women, to him unknown. No one capable of observation, who walks or rides abroad in this city, will deny this general proposition. That ii should be so is remarkable, in view of the fact that habitual profanity Involves not less of vulgarity than of Immorality, and falls to supply any of emphasis that Is not otherwise obtainable from the English language. It Is one of the curses of our existence, and one of the most difficult to suppress or avoid, save by a moral awakening on the part of the guilty who are not degenerates. HA WAITS DANGER. Professor Koebele, the Territorial entomologist, has very decided ideas oji forest preservation. Practically, he says that If the denudation of the forests is not stopped it will simply be a question of time when thes Islands will be uninhabitable by man. He says that unless a check is givei to the awful destruction of forests largo areas of fertile sections of the Islands will become barren mere deserts. He says the annual wash of soil ln'.3 the sea, which could not happen were the forests maintained, is enormous. The warning of the Territory's learned scientist should be heeded. It is to be hoped that the voluminous report which Prof. Koebele Is now prapariug on forest preservation may be printed by the Territory and given wlds circulation throughout the group. Indeed, the water and forestry .tions will both force themselves on the legislature and should be thoroughly considered from every iiolnt of view and scientifically and intelligently acted upon. These ar? matters on which there can be no division of sentiment Party politics do not enter into their discussion nor their final disposition. Only the futuit; welfare of the Islands and all ihe people should be considered. We hope that there may be men In the legislatuie broad enough and liberal enough to look .at these matters squarely and fairly and give to them the investigation """ which they merit POO TELEPHONE SERVICE. It win take something more than a communication from the Chamber of Commerce to remedy pit execrable telephone service of Honolulu. Tfce whole service needs transformation from top to bottom. Seattle wholesale saerchaati fet an example about two moatac ago of how o secure better telephone service. They bad bee suffering something like the aaae sort at miserable service that Hoaolulu fat afflicted with and complaints were ceoty met vita tfet reaiark that, the aay woaM take the Ufertoae aot U Sire $100 in add coin tm nay eaarity i complainant did not like it, Jss ai'j has been the case in this city. Fbaally the wholesale merchants decided la a meeting of their association, totaks their telephones out in a body, not enlr from, their twaines nowees, sat from I their residences, and to organise a new telephcae caaspaay among which would give decent aervjce. This action was effective and It -lid not take the old company long to work a 'marvelous change in the service. Action of the same sort by the business men, both wholesalers and retailers, seems to be needed In Honolulu. . Gold Gift to a Kanaka. To the Editor of The Republican-Sir: Judge Humphreys yesterday in open court, in a certain adoption matter which, came Tefore him, made a present of a five-dollar gold piece to the youngster who was the subject of adoption. I think this is the first "gold gift" ever made to a "kanaka" youngster on the day of his adoption by a judge of the court in the judicial history of this country. - (Signed) A Native Member of the Hawaiian Bar of the Territory of Hawaii.
