; known to every citizen, of the territory. Said
i Air. Fisher:
I am tiere, primarily, as the representative of the
president of th United States, coming, it is true, at
the request of both parties to this controversy and
my function isne of a purely advisory nature. All
that. I can do Is tell the president of the United
Slates what I think he ought to do. I may say to
you that I think I know what I shall say to him, and
M it were not for that rule which makes it courteous
not to say In advance what you inteid to say to the
president of the United States. I should have no hes
itation in saying it now. However, I shall conform
to the rule.
' There is only one other thing I can say that is.
I. hope the people of this territory will have cleared
up a little for them as a result of this investigation,
the real facts that confront any governor of the ter
ritory and the difficulties with which he has to deal
that they will areclate a little more than they
have that any governor ought not to be left to play
a lone hand as your governor has been left to play
here and as perhaps he is by temperament rather
disposed to play.
, The fact of the matter is that your destiny is in
your hands. There is very little indeed that the gov
ernment at Washington can do. There is very little
' that I can do. All that I can do is to hold up the
mirror; and ask a few questions which may bring out
the situation clearly to you so that you may work out
your own salvation. There is no one else that can
aid you, and the sooner you realize in this territory
' that It is necessary to work out a right solution of
- political and industrial problems here, why, the bet-

Mr. Fisher has declared the steady interest
of the national administration in Hawaii, the
attention that he and his department will pay to
. the problems of this territory, and at the same
time he has made it quite clear that he relies on
the sturtliness, the clear-headedness, the pro
gressive Americanism of Hawaii im the greatest
. forces toward the working out of Hawaii's salvation.

many things that seemed to us at the time of making

lost their seriousness as a result of the explana

we have been able to give to the circumstances them
