A man who has once sold out to
those he had been fighting is very prone to imagine others tarred with the same stick as himself. The great liberality of the people of Honolulu toward a worthj cause was fittingly demonstrated in the leper concert, which netted nearly $1,100 for the unfortunates at Molokni. The domands upon the advertising space of The Republican by tV live, progressive business men of the citv are so groat as to necessitate t"G Issuance of a ten-page paper this morning. Honolulu merchants are carrying an enormous quantity of holiday goods this year, which is a sure indication of prosperity. Those who wish to sell their goods toll you about them through the columns of The Republican. "Any charter committee Is good enough which understands that the city does not want a charter and would be bettor off for several years without one." All of which shows that the appointment of a charter commission by the republican executive committee was xnorely for the purpose of trying to defeat a charter rathor than help to secure a good one. What Is the matter with Brother Tfaynood and his "influence" at Washington that it became necessary for Commissioner of Public Lauds Jacob F. Brown to journey to Washington. Certainly Mr Haywood with his $10.-000 a year salary (Excuse us, we itfhas now dwindled to $5,000 a year) ought to be able to find time to do a little lobbying on the side for "oar government" without compelling Mr. Brown to make this five thousand mile -Journey. George A. Davis of the n. publican chartor commission wants Tbe Republican to bo sure and furnish tho commission a copy, or numb f copies, of the city charter of Ph x. Arizona, rand even suggests tb of the charter of Tombston the wild and woolly days of that tamed town in the early eighties, would surely afford a good working model for the Honolulu commission. It's too bad that copies requested are not at hand, but an effort will be made to comply with the request before the commission gets too deeply into its work. An Irreverent member of The Republican staff wants to know why the suggestion was made that a minister of the gospel should be on the commission whoa there are already so many missionaries members. Benjamin Franklin, who died In 1790. left 35,000 each to tho cities of Boston and Philadelphia, to be kept Invested for a period of one hundred years, and the entire accumulation devoted at the end of a century to certain public projects. How great a ference there can be In financial is shown by the fact that th Boston fund now amounts to J366.SS0 and that of Philadelphia to but little over 5100.000. Boston has decided to spend the money for a branch of tho public library, to be called the Franklin Institute.especially used for classes and lectures In history and Bcience, and for instruction in applied arts and mechanics. Philadelphia will turn over its Franklin fund to the park commission for an art gallery. Kow that Tho "Republican, by its persistent efforts, lias aroused the people of Hawaii to the importance of tourist travel to these Islands, others are joining in tne work, which is most pleasing to this paper The Maul which Is rothlnc if sot enterprising, has tho following pertinent paragraph upon the value of advertising the manifold attractions of Hawaii as advocated by this paper: "No more time should be delayed in organising an effort to divert tourift travel to the Islands. A bureau should at once be created, with a live man at the bead LOST IN WASHINGTON. And now Jacob F. Brown, Commissioner of Public Londs for the of "Hawaii has gone to Washington -o tell Land Commissioner BIngr Hermann, Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock and Attorney General Griggs how to manage the public lands in Hawaii and point out to th Attorney General how badly he is acting In instructing the United States Attorney for Hawaii to bring suit in the United States Court to set aside all sales, grants and leases of public lands made since the 14th day of June. 1900. And this action of Commissioner of Public Lands Brown reminds us of ? story, not a fable either, which is worth relating, little children. Once upon a time there was a Gov ernor of a Territory named Wolfley who conceived the Idea that he was a blcger man and greater official than the Secretary of the Interior and :i whole lot of other people at Washington. Like some residents of Hawaii he talked a great deal about "my administration" which corresponds to "our government." He finally began to tell the Secretary of the Interior how he ought to run affairs of the Interior Department pertaining to his particular Territory. Finally this Sec retary of the Interior, whose sir name was Noble, became much vexed at this Territorial Governor and sent him an invitation by telegraph to journey on to Washington at Government ex pense. And lo and behold when this Territorial Governor arrived at Washington there was no delegation at the depot to meet him. No band played "Hail to the Chief" as he alighted from his train, nor were troops drawn up In line to present arms as he emerged from the station. Not even the newspaper correspondents sought him out to interview him at his hotel dis missing any mention of his name with a wave of the band and a remark to the effect thaw he was only the Governor of a Territory and not of much account anyway. Arriving at the office of the Secretary of the Interior he had to wait in the ante-room and send in his cara the same as other visitors and wait his turn for an audience. And when the audience was granted the Secretary politely informed him that it was thought at Washington that a man oi such transcendent ability, who, at a distance of two thousand miles from the National capitol, could tell the Secretary of the Interior how to run his department, was wasting his time in the government service and it had been decided to appoint a new Governor in his Territory and if his resignation was handed in at once without jany fuss or feathers he would be let down real easy. "Did he resign?" did one of you children ask. Well he went back home a private citizen and a new Governor was occupying tho chair when he reached home. How's that? Oh yes, Mr Jacob F. Brown will probably learn thnt the officials at Washington have a whole lot of foolish notions about how to conduct the affairs of Uncle Sam which do not jibe with the real, proper way "our government" has of conducting them. A recent number of the Kansas City Star says that R. C. Kerens of at. Louis is being talked of at Washington as the probable successor of Etlian Allen Hitchcock, as Secretary of the Interior. No more capable man for the post of Secretary of the Interior could be found in the United States than "Dick" Kerens of St. Louis. Mr. Kerens is one of the strongest sup porters of President McKinley and has been for years. He is noted as one of tho best business men in the we3t having begun a poor man forty years ago and being now several times a millionaire. He is a director in several of the leading western railroads and i probably more familiar with the needs of tho western states and territories than anv other man who could be ap pointed to the Interior Department. Mr. Kerens has done much to build ua the republican party in Missouri in the last five years and If he Is continued at the head of the party in that state a few years longer will land it in the republican column. The Republican hopes "Uncle Dick" Kerens will become Secretary of the Interior He would be the right man in the right place. Dr. Edward Everett Hale's three rules are: "Live as much as possible in the open air. Touch elbows with the rank and file. Talk every day with a man who is your superior. If tho superior men havent time ,to talk, visit a library, -where their name is legion. Deputy Sheriff Chilllngworth has done work In connection with the death of Clara Schneider and Scost Bennett that -would do credit to the best detective departments of the mainland cities. How much better .t would be if so energetic and capable a man as Chlllingworth was at the head of the police department If. as tbe Advertiser leaves it ip be inferred, the Territory of Hawaii "still control tbe public toads way aas tk Not Increased Usefulness. From the Chicago Times-Herald. When a preacher gives up a small church to accept a call where the salary is larger, people sneer and forget that perhaps his family has .been Increasing. Insult Plus Injury. From the Taconia Ledger. With apparent anxiety the San Francisco Chronicle asks what the Democrats will do to Bryan. Perhaps they will follow the example of the Repub licans and won't do a thing to him. Should Remodel Liquor Laws. vTom the Maul News. Tho loriolatiire should entirely re model the liauor law. leaving it to the different localities to regulate the liquor traffic injtheir midst. It cannot h claimed that the liquor law as 11 now exists prevents the use or sale of linuor. and about the only thing to a claimed for it is that it held the legitimized sale of liquor in a few hands. It has often been demonstrated that legislation is impotent to check the traffic in liquor, consequently it should be loft to each community to properly regulate Its sale. The Divorce Evil. From the Chicago Chronicle. Laudahle as are the limited efforts of churches to check the divorce rage, the proportion of Americans enrolled in church organization and submitting to denominational discipline is i.o s ight a fraction of the nation that religious reaction against the divorce rage will prove only partially effectual. Until the moral sense of the nation itself, throuch its secular agency, is aroused to statutory barriers the rage for divorce must persist, subject only , to spasmodic variations In intensity. A. its present pace it threatens to sub- paroxysm of free love. The pagan Ka man used to be measured not by his great or good deeds, but by the number of his divorces To this of social laxity practically free divorce is bearing the American nation. The threatening evil will encounter no effectual check until the states and territories adopt an Identical statute forbidding remarriage of the guilty divorced person. American Coal and Coaling Stations. From the New York Herald. The navy department has found it cheaper to ship coal to our foreign stations than to buy it abroad. The average price paid here as $5.SS per ton, while that demanded abroad was 5S.53 per ton. As the total amount contracted for exceeded two hundred and twenty-five thousand tons, this dif ference of cost, freight and other charges included, represents a very important saving. As the quality of the home coal is much 'superior to the gereral run offered abroad, an additional gain must be set down. This question of coal supply Is so important to the sea powers that enormous quantities are being stored in fortified ports and outlying possessions. France Is notably activejn this effort to be self-sustaining in war, and a 'part of the duty entrusted to her war snips is to test and report upon the possible markets that may be utilized in peace. At this moment tne Cecille and the Suchet have taken on board an unusual quantity of American coal, and if the results are satisfactory large orders may be confidently expected in this country. Our government has established coal depots in Hawaii, Samoa, Luzon, Yokohama, Porto Rico and Pichillnque in Mexico, and contracts have been made to keep these wed stocked. In his present report the chief of the bureau of equipment has recommended the construction of barges with a carrying capacity of ten thousand tons, to be used in connection with these depots, and the board of naval design has taken up seriously the subject of c Hiers specially built for our service. Warning to Local Merchants. From the Maui News. Wholesale -and retail merchants in Honolulu should not shut- their eyes to the fact tnat Coast drummers are finding their way to the Islands and are diverting trade to the Coast. They would have done so before but for the heavy license imposed upon tne Coast drummers. Neither shoum the Honolulu merchants underestimate the mail traffic which will spring up between the great department stores of ine states and the retail purchasers on the Islands, who will be reached by catalogues. This traffic will curtail and evenually revolutionize the present current of trade on the Islands, both in the wholesale and retail departments.
