The best wj, to prevent any vicious legislation u the city charter is for all the people to join hi framing u good one. WOMEN ON CHARTER COMMISSION. In making selections of members of t'.i charter commission by the various political parties The Republican would ' st the appointment of several upon the commission. Women aro as much interested in good govern-im nt for Honolulu as the men, and in fait even greater Interested, for good gocrnmont means much to every mother Mrs. Anna Milward Eames, now a resident of .this city, but of Ios Angeles, was a member of the charter commission which framed the new charter of the city of Los Angiles. adopted a few years ago. and would be a valuable member of the Honolulu charter commission. Mrs. E. W Jordan and Mrs. W. W. Hall have bun two of tho most efficient of the school board of the They are wonderfully capable women, women of good Judgment, of M n discernment and deeply In the welfare of tlfe city. Mrs. . F. Froar Is a woman who has taken a prominent part in all things to tho adxanremvnt of the people. Her work kn coi section with the kindergartens and the art league have shown her In ti rest In all that tends to elevate and uplft mankind. She Is a Vassar graduate and a most talonted woman. Then there is Mrs. B. F. Dillingham and Mrs Frank Damon, two of the women w' t arc prominent in charitable and bneolent work and in the advance-mi nt of the people and of the city, not to mention several others. Any one and all of these women would prove most valuable members of a charter commission and their counsel should be secured. The Republican would also suggest that It would be a mistake not to have some of the newer residents of the city on the commission. Many of the old residents have been hero so long that they have lost track of the things connected with city government, while newer members of tho community have In many cases held Important positions In city and municipal government in tho States, and their experience in tho past would be valuable to the commission. Both of these suggestions, we hope, will be considered, especially the one In regard to appointing some of the foremost women in Honolulu as members of the commission. HONOLULU'S CONGESTED COURTS The Island of Oahu has not less than 0,000 population, three-fourths of which Is within what Is generally known as of Honolulu. Is "K city or county of. the sane yoprMQimk in the westers etatee or torritortea bC the United States, and particularly In ocean or river cities where there is large amount of shipping and general business is there less than two courts corresponding to the circuit courts of this island to transact the legal busi ness. More often there are three such courts. In Los Angeles county and city. California. In 1SSS. they found the three superior courts so overwhelmed with work that the legislature of ISS7 was asked to and did Increase the num ber to five, and yet at that time the population of the city was only a little over 50.000. and of the entire county 101,000 inhabitants. Here In Honolulu we find one circuit court and only one judge attempting to transact the work that should not be attempted by less than two courts, and to Insure speedy trials, as the law contemplates, should have three circuit courts with the corresponding number of judges. For some time before the territorial government was organized many matters had been allowed to pass along In the circuit courts without adjudication, while z during the plague time nothing whatever was done by either of the two circuit judges then on the bench, thus pormitting cases to accumulate until tho calendar was unduly congested. When Judges Humphreys and SH-..man were appointed there were nearly three hundred cases on the calendar, a number that In the ordinary course of legal ouslness would take three judges at least a year to clear off the calondar, even If no new suits were filed. Judge Silllman found he could not ia justice to himself continue In the office for the salary paid, and soon resigned, leaving but one judge on the bench. All this time new suits have constantly been added to the list until now there are considerably over three hundred cases on the calendar and but one judge holding court. Judse Humphreys has been very active in keeping up the work of his court and has been universally praised by the bar for his dispatch of business, but neither he nor any other man can keep up with the growth of legal battles constantly coming up for adjudication. At the present time an Important case Is on trial which has been before the court for a week and will run at least another week, from present appear ances, before it will be finished. In or der to hurry up the work the court has begun the Holding of night seS' sions, but neither the judge nor attorneys can keep up this pace. The condition of atfairs here is serious. So serious that the matter should be at once laid before the President and the Attorney General for immedl ate action. The Republican believes i.iat it would be the part of wisdom for the bar association as a body to present the subject in strong terms to Attorney General Griggs calling his attention to the congested calendar here and to the utter Inability of one judge to handle so much work as is before the circuit court of the First circuit. We also believe It would be wise for the bar association to lay before the Attorney General the need of amending the Organic Act by providing for three judges for the First circuit of Hawaii, and tho same should be pressed to the attention of the judiciary committees of the house and senate. Every one realizes that something ought to be done promptly to relieve the present condition of affairs, and who else can so well call the attention of the Presi dent and Attorney General to the mat ter as the Bar Association of Honolulu, Mr. W. F. C. Hasson, deputy colector of internal revenue, is reported in an evening paper as saying that the artl cle In The Republican about Collector Haywood going to San Francisco to try to secure Mr. Hasson's appointment as his successor was not gleaned from any reliable source, and Is there fore not authentic Strange, indeed! but then Mr. Hasson took care not to deny The .Republican's statemenL What this paper said about Mr. Haywood's trip Is too authentic to suit the star chamber methods of the lobbyist and his deputy, "ilr. Hasson Is hoping against hope for that fat plum which the sugar planters' lobbyist Is soon to relinquish. And so W. J. Coelho thinks The Republican has libeled him. Well, well, if the good name of some people only equalled their gall and effrontery now wonderfully brilliant they would be". Work Among the Heathens. From the Indianapolis Journal. "That lady missionary declines to go to Kentucky." "Why?" "She says she'd feel just as safe in China and get more Hawaii's Constitutional Rights. From Philadelphia North American. Judges Galbraith anu Humphreys, of the Hawaiian Supreme Court, appointed by President McKInley, have declared that certain Territorial laws aro repugnant to the Constitution of the United States, and. therefore. Ball ad void. In their opinion, they discassthe question of the constitutional status of Territories belonging to the United States, and refuse their assent to the doctrine that the operation or slon of the CoBsUtvttom aaoa the will of Coagress.

It's got to be by jing! A much too ordinary thing with them To order nary thing. This certainly does not refer to Honolulu because no drummer leaves nere without oraers galore. The Schools In Kau. To the Editor of The Republican: Sir: My letter to you regarding the Kan schools brought the board of education to time. It shows the powsr The Republican has. I would like you to contradict the following regarding the road to Hllea, etc. The Republican In the notes from the meeting of the Board of Education states a letter was read from Hilea re garding the removal of the Punaluu school, and that there are only two rooms at Hllea and three teachers, and where to put the third teacher is the problem. Now one of the reasons for the Board of Education for advancing the Punaluu school was that there is no place for a teacher to live at Punaluu. The third teacher, that the letter from Hilea has reference to is Miss Abbie Kekaula, living In Punaluu, and who has to ride to Hilea every morning to teach, and the Punaluu children go barefooted over a rough lava flow to attend the--school, -while an empty school house is laying idle with desks, etc., all ready to occupy at Punaluu. It states that the road along tue beach is only one and a half miles. This is a mistake, as Hilea is not on the beach, but about three miles and If the children were to go along the beach until they came opposite to Hilea it would be nearly two miles, and then have a climb of threo miles more up hill over rough lava making it about five miles. The Hawaiian's here feel grateful to you for the interest you have taken in the schools. KAMAAINA. Punaluu, Nov. 19, 1000. r Unkindest Cut of All. From the Sacramento Record Union. Well! well! After all the worry and suspense it turns out that beat Bryan in the latter's own county, his own city and his own SLite. In fact, the Republican leader has over 6,000 plurality in Nebraska. Truly that is unkindest cut of all. A prophet not honored among his own is a sad citizen. Calamity is choked to death by prosperity in Nebraska. Even the Legislature turns up Republican and the hopes of the fuslonists to nag the Administration from behind a United States Senatorship have "gone a glimmering." HONOLULU STOCK EXCHANGE. HONOLULU.
