THE BOOMS THAT BOOMED IN THE SPRING
TrE early worn; rets caught by the bird. Is that to be^ the
~ ' iieT of the Tzi\ md Fairbanks uprisings of the people that
>oomed in the srr :r^: r^ and had a brief prosperity? The Fair
banks boom Yv.v dustriously watered by a literary bureau
of much activity and industry but not very striking intelligence.
The* Taft* boom was promoted on the ground, that he is "Roose
\"elt's choice,", but this argument did not appear quite convincing.^
We all litae Taft and we like Roosevelt, but, in fine, people prefer
to do their own choosing. In one sense, politics is a form of sport
in these.^days. when there are no overwhelming issues to disturb
me.nVjninds. There is no fighting talk in the politics of the day
and', only just a little wonder whether the republicans mean to
stand" pat or declare for a revision of the tariff. .Brother Taft him
self'is placidly moseying along. If the thing comes his" way, wh)%
that' will be' all right — if not, he can turn, his hand with equal or
evert more-facmty to the, work of the supreme bench. He described
liis owti attitude in a speech at Yale commencements the other day:
A long time ago there was a republican governor elected in Kentucky,
and an old man who had voted the republican ticket for years without any
result came down, off the mountains on his old mare, .Jenny, and hung
ground the public square till he became'finally of the opinion that republicans
are ungrateful. He at last turned his horse's head toward his mountain home,
when ?ornc of the boys who sat on the piazza of the hotel at Frankfort called
cut to him and asked.htm what he looked so glum about. .He stopped^ his
mare and. said, slowly, "Well; boys, I've heard it said that the office should
seek the man and riot. the man the office: I've been down here for several
cays and I haven't 6een any offices seeking- theanan, but if you do you just
tell them that you seen Jim Stubbs -going down the Alexandria "pike on
his little mare, Jenny, and that he was going damned. slow."- n .... ->j
Xo other boom has so- far assumed any importance, except
-that of Governor Hughes of New York. That is growing- steadily^
but Hughes is, in a sense, the unknown, quantity... ... Does ;he stand
pat. .for instance, or does he carry a knife in his boot for the tariff ?
\\> clo.not know. We do not know that Hughes knows there is a
tarilt. : H-e would not be the first man nominated for president
who. awoke "to find an unsuspected monster called the Tariff seek
ing to -devour an innocent candidate ''unawares. The standpatters
do not like Taft and have already declared he cannot „ be nomi
nated* fof that reason.- Possibly, Hughes likewise 'may be sus-J
pectcd of .heresy. .•
The" Washington Herald discovers a strong undercurrent in
favor of "the old ticket, Roosevelt .^nd. ; Fairbanks. . >But ., there is
hard sledding still ahead,, and nobody { seems to have '•; much of a
grip on the ropes. •
"AT THE DROP OF THE HAT"
GOVERNOR CARTER of Hawaii is pleased to announce that;
there is no Japanese question on the islands. .That may or i
not be true, but it is certainly beyond dispute that the terri
tory, under Governor Carter, is making a very serious Japanese
question for the mainland. /The islands are merely a sieve " through ;
which a constantly increasing immigration ; of coolies' filters to the I
United States. Recent events in San Francisco indicate hoWunde-i
sirable is this immigration. If .it is: to be continued dangerous I
international complications wilf constantly arise. " Carter says "Japan ';
would "fight at the drop of a hat," and he offers to provide the hat.
The government and private enterprise in Hawaii have jointly
spent in the past thirty years about $9,000,000: importing labor -for
the plantations. These immigrants . are enumerated and classified
by Lorin A. Thurston as follows: . ; •
Koreans :*. ....:... .:...... 6,908

Of these immigrants it is, figured that^ 85*000_ left the islands
for the mainland, and this; is a continuing process, fraught with the
grayest danger. :We do not .'want a . constant I influx of I people who.
are "ready to fight at the drop of a hat," and it "is'time^to -stop'it:
We believe that the national government: begins-to appreciate the
•danger, and l . this- feeling - is, doubtless, \u25a0;\u25a0 the inspiration^ and - motive
of the forthcoming visit : of Secretary; Straus ~to the islarids^ .
DIVIDED COUNSEL AMONG RAILROADS
f HERE is divided counsel among the railroads; on the subject
of 2 cent fare legislation and other; forms of regulation 1 - adopted !
by^the several states last winter. "That hostilelbpdy /of 'legist
lation, taking . form at the same moment Jin so many widely i
different, commonwealths, was created? rather by; way of protest of'
retaliation than as an intelligent remedy: for oppressive or objec
tionable practices *by; railroads." The; legislatures, Jn x a 'word, felt i
called upon ior an expression of public indignation,; and they > just !
turned loose the first missile weapon thai, came ;hari"dy.. Somebody I
suggested a limitation of , passenger fares [to 2 T "cents a mile^^and
fourteen legislatures all, spoke « at once.: \u25a0\u25a0": It- should; be obvious that
if 2 cents a {mile is a reasonable charge in New^Xork: stated where
people are plenty, it must ; be too low : in Missouri, i where population I
is^sparse. . ' " ; >/.// ''r-~%-ci ;:'-'\u25a0:\u25a0• ' : "-J :
