At the next mooting of life Im

asking the Federal Government
through its War Department to

In support of this(tho Honorable
"Could tho War Department be
prevailed upon to do this, the very
presence of regulars, in localities
where there is or has been disturb
ing elements, would create a feel
ing of fear and do away with al
together, or at least lesson tho
possibility of strikes and rioting.1'
Again the people would derivo
a great many nenents irom tno

First hy offering tho local trades
men an opportunity to furnish
fresh supplies to the post. Second,
Ihe money which would be dis
tributed monthly on pay day

acting to a degree tho amount
which is being Bent to the Orient."
The people of each island

"Commander Coffin in a recent
interview in the Honolulu papers
in speaking of a probable war be
tween tho United States and an
Oriental power said: "In such a
war, Hawaii would bo liko a bono
between two dogs. Each fleet
would try to hold these islands
as a point of vantage. There is no
doubt in my mind that Hawaii
should have better protection."
"Commander Coffin of course is
speaking from a naval standpoint,
yet at the same time what a feeling
of securety there would bo if a
company of regulars were stationed
who would take the initiative to
quell any sympathetic demons
tration on land. Nor does this
apply any moro to Maui, Hawaii,
or Kauai, than it does to Oahu.
should a naval battle take place
off that island. "
The stand taken by the Legisla
ture in regard to the National Guard
has been thoroughly thrashed out,
but as long as we are dealing
with military affairs it will not bo
amiss to say that tho reason tho
Legislature took tho stand it did
was that they did not belicvo in
supporting tho militia, but because
tho militia was being used for
primary purposes. Another thing,
tho National Guard as it stands
under the military law cannot be
called out promptly to bo of any
assistance to tho police in quelling

tho appropriation 60 as to permit

force to work in conjunction jitl
tho police, and in caso of tho cstab
lishmg of sub-posts, tho regulars

as tho National Guard could bo
legally called out."
"Certainly tho National Guard
should be maintained by all
means, but in the absence of an
appropriation by tho Territory,
let each county support its own
Fifty dollars a month will bo
all that is needed for actual, not
special, expunsk mono'. For in
stance, the federal government
provides the militia with arms and
accoutrements, and yet in the event
of a call for target practice this
fifty dollars or such part of
it as is necessary could bo de
voted to tho providing of shells,
provisions and other necessities.
"But this matter of asking tho
War Department, by a mammoth
petition, to establish on each is
land a sub-post and a detachment
of regulars is one that should not
bo lightly passed over, but if
coining events count for anything
and tho suggestions of army and
navy officers are worth consider
ation wo cannot start this move
ment too soon."
SARGENT ON CHINESE
HONOLULU. Juno 27. Com
missioner General of Immigration
Frank' P. Sargent was interviewed
yesterday regarding tho cable dis
patches from Washington to tho
effect that President Roosevelt had
directed that tho fullest courtesies
bo shown to the Chineso of tho
exempt class entering tho United
"I can of course, only conjecturo
what that dispatch means" said
General Sargent "because I have
not been advised regarding the
orders by tho President. I think
however that tho President has
directed that tho immigration of
ficials endeavor to show as much
consideration and every kindness
possible to tho Chineso of tho
exempt classes arriving at Ameri
can ports, for tho purposo of enter
ing tho United States.
Tho laws oh the subject of
Chineso exclusion aro cxplict and
were passed by Congress. Under
thoso laws tho Chineso exempt
from tho provisions of tho ex
clusion laws aro tho merchant
class, student class and traveller
class who como for instruction or
curiosity. Tho laws aro also very
plain upon the details of qualifica
tion of each class. A man of tho
morchant class is required for in
stance, to havo his papers made
out telling about his business, tho
amount of money ho has invested
and othor details. Thero aro how
ever, efforts to ovado tho provisions
sented themselves as being of a
class when they were nothing of
tho sort and were not entitled to
land. In a situation where there
is the possibility of fraud being
perpetrated, it is necessary to ex
orcise the utmost care to prevent
the laws being evaded.
''I have instructed tho immi
gration officials to show the utmost
consideration and kindness to tho
people of tho exempt classes . and
i i-ii j. i. . ..
iiuvo ioiu mem mo lact mat a
man be a Chinese, thoy must not bo
prejudiced their treatment of him
n. i i i
nuif we navo lounu in many in
stances that the alleged merchant
had had no acquaintance with tho
certificate which was supposed to
prove his qualification to bo ex
empt from tho Exclusion laws. It
was found that tho certificate had
been issued to him upon tho pay
ment of $50 or $100 or $200.
'Lomplamts havo been made to
the President, in tho interest I do
not doubt, of thoso who hoped to
make a profit of tho Chinese, that
the exclusion laws were being en
forced unjustly and too strictly.
Tho President communicated with
the Secretary of the Department
of Labor regarding tho matter.
Wo prepared a statement upon
this Eubject which was given to
the Secretary and I understand
was sent to tho President. In that
statement for instance is tho case
of the Chinese student. During
tho fiscal year ending Juno SO, 72
Chinese students applied for ad
mission and out of this number
70 were admitted. Tho two who
were refused a landing, were aflict
ed with trachoma a diseaso which
"I presume that the President
has been guided by tho facts in
that statement in this matter, as
it was shown thero tho necessity
of exorcisng the utmost precau
tions to guard against fraud.'-
OAHU CANDIDATES FOR GOV
HONOLULU. Juno 26. W. O.
Smith and II. E. Cooper, so the in
dications are, aro about neck and
neck at present for tho main office
of tho Territory. Heretofore Smith
has always been regarded as a
supporter of Cooper.
Tho governorship is tho first
topic of conversation everywhere.
Opinion is not as pronounced as it
might bo wore it known just what
Carter has in mind; whether or
not ho is determined to resign.
Tho Planters Association has ask
ed him to remain and today tho
Chamber of Commerce passed re
solutions to tho effect that ho ro
considor. Carter's resignation has certain
ly stirred tho business community
whoso members are apparently
against any change on tho ground
that too frequent changes of ad
ministration aro bad for commer
cial interests. They don't know
who may succeed; and naturally,
perhaps, fear tho appointment of
somo man who may start out in a
way all his own and upset business
by reason of doubt as to what he
is going to do next.
Smith, liko all men, has his
critics as well as his friends and
tho former declaro that in office ho
would bo altogether to arbitrary
in lys administration, notwith
standing his influence for harmony
ns a privato though prominent
Cooper is conceded to bo a man
of energy, initiative, persistence
integrity, popularity and good,
sound executive senso, combined
with fairness and an appreciation
of the public good.

that moral obligations aro all
powerful that ho shall finish tho
work in connection with planta
tion properties which lio has un
dertaken and which cannot bo
completed for more than a year.
As to tho Kopoikai matter, Mr.
Baldwin stated this morning that
tho morning paper was not correct
in saying that his namo had been
forged to the Kopoikai resolutions.
And at tho same time ho had not
signed tho resolutions. Ho was
not present at tho meeting. He
lias not signed the resolutions.
Therefore the copies given out for
publication with his namo attach
ed were misleading. It was ex
pected by tho meeting that Bald
win's signature would bo sei-urod,
Mr. Baldwin's friends seem to
think that tho appointment of
Kepoikai will bo impossible in
view if lna endorsement by tho
Homo Rulers and that Baldwin's
first choice will bo W. O. Smith,
and failing in that ho would select

ATKINSON MAY QUIT.
HONOLULU, Juno 27. The
resignation of Secretary A. L. .
Atkinson is not unlikely to lollow
tho accentanco of Carter's rosiitiifi--
