The arrivals aro insignifn nut.-
The departure.0 are so overwhelm
ingly large that they readily dispel
the throat which the Government-by-Coininission
is involved in tho huge birth-rate
and future-citizenship prospects of
There is good reason to believe
that the departures of children for
tius year will be notably increased
over previous years. 1 lie depart-,
ures of Japanese are usually larger
tho latter part of the year, after
the sugnr-harvcting season is
finished and the laborers have
thoir money for the year's work.
Assuming that every Japanese
horn in the Islands and electing to
remain and become an American
citizen is an enemy of America
an assumption entirely unwarrant
ed hut necessitrily the basis of tho
Governineiit-by-Coni mission talk
the percentage of Japanese will
still not be large.enough to accom
plish the horrible purpose, that lias
been pictured. The elements other
than the Japanese would control
at tho ballot box by force of num
bers. . v
The Govern men t-by-Commission
outfit has not a leg to stand on.
The proposition is opposed to every
American principle. It is foreign
to the attitude of the American
Government toward any people'or
any territory that lias come under
the Flag; It is not sought by any
reputable efement within tho Terri
tory. And there is not the slight
est necessity for any such reversion
to governniental darkness and
error. ' '
Aside from their insulting atti
tude to the present electorate of
the Territory, tho local advocates
of Government by Commission
must assume from the very outset
that the principles of American
government are a failure. If they
ire a success, and government of,
by, and for the people is right,
and our public schools ate' all that
we claim for them, then the Ameri
can people have no cause to fear
the Japanese-American population
of these Islands.
The Advertiser as usual discusses
the subject in an able and hoard
minded manner. It says.
The Island of Oahu is to he made,
not only a naval base for the
United States, but a war base, a
point from which the arms of the
service can strike as well as a point
for the defence of the Pacific sea
board of the mainland. Millions
are to be poured in here to construct
the greatest naval station in the
world; other millions will be spent
in installing shore batteries and for
tifications to protect the naval station
from attack from ships at sea and
fi'Qin possible lauding parties in the
rear. Among the strategists of the
navy Oahu is v about to come into
Under circumstances like these
the rumored information that tho
Sehroeder Hoard has recommended
steps to place the governing of the
Islands under an appointed Board
of Commissioners, while it came as
a decided surprise, is not so surpris
ing after all, on second thought. Tn
view of the prepondorence of Japa
nese in the Territory, with the cer
tainty that in the ordinary course
of events the whole government of
the Islands, including the control
of the National Guard, the county
police forces, the road supervisor
ships, the custody of all public
buildings, everything local, in fact,
will be controlled by a voting nia
jority foreign in everything but
lurtli and witn tlie majority among
them reared with soiUiments of
loyalty to the country and emperor
of their fathers,-is it to be wondered
at in the least that such a recom
mendation might have been made?
The Federal government can be
depended upon to take some stops
'to change the conditions here. Mem
bers of the Congressional party dis
cussed the situation during their
visit; naval and army dllic'evs have
long before this gone into the mat
ter, the War Department has had
its secret service men here investi
gating. The whole situation is plain
to Washington, quite as plain as it
is to those here who have given at
tention to that side of the question.
It is true that the cable reported
that Governor Frear announced
when on the mainland that we had
in') Japanese- question in Hawaii, hut
after his return the Governor stated
that, he had not said what the cabled
report stated that he1 had said, al
though at the time of the reported
utteraneo'thc "Japanese question"
was not the Japanese question of
today nor was it being viewed in the
light that it is today.
A practical, not a hysterical, view
of the situation must be taken.
There is no occassion for anyone to
suspect ulterior motives on anyone's
part either for stating that the .re
commendation for the repeal of the
Organic Act is rumored to have been
made, or for discussing th6 proba
bilities of truth.in the rumor. The
situation lies plain to be seen. Tin
elected governing bodies today do1S"rtli K- Aluli hltc of Wailuku
not represent the better element.
Flection periods toss those to the
top who are never heard of or con
sulted between elections when ques
tions of importance are to bo con
sidered and acted upon. There are
some few exceptions, undoubtedly,
but the rule is as stated. No one
disputes it. This also is known to
What results would follow the
doing away with tho present system,
beyond tho fact that business rules
would probably bo applied to the
governing of the Islands and a lot
of wholly unnecessary salary-drawers
bj forced to work for a living?
The city of Washington is governed
by a commission suoh as rumor
states may be appointed for Hawaii,
and tho city of Washington is the
best governed city in 1 the United
States. There are nearly twice as
many people in Washington as in
all Hawaii, and they rejoice in good,
clean, honest government.
Should the rumored change come,
tho tax rate for the Territory would
go down. JJio executive expense
of government would be raid bv
Washington, and undoubtedly much.
of-tho expense of administering tho'
government. As a .military base,
military roads will ho a necessity,
and the round-the-island road and
roads through the various mountain
passes would go in, roads built and
maintained by citizen labor under
the direction of expert engineers;
Health conditions would come un
der the Federal control and a tre
mendous item of expense be taken
ojl the shoulders of the taxpayers.
The country would be opened up,
the produce of the small farmer
could ho marketed over good roads,
and there would be a .inarket for it
with thousands of laborers employ
ee! in harbor and fortification con
struction and with garrisons estab
lished. With a commisson composed of
threo outside commissioners and
two from Hawaii, working hero to
gether as a hoard, 'such a would
probably be named, there would be
small fear of Hawaii and Hawaiian
interests receiving less attention at
Washington than at present. The
recommendations of such a board
regarding tariff, the necessity for
better shipping laws and the other
subjects concerning which we now
send a Delegate to Congress, secre
taries to assist, unofficial rep'resen
tatives and delegations, would re
ceive tho same attention at least by
Congress from commissioners with
quicker results. From the adminis
tration of justice politics would lie
eliminated, and there would be a
short cut to tho solution of tho land
Encouragement would he given to
white settlers to take up,the vacant
government land of the Territory.
Hack of the. garrisons tho Federal
govwyimont would want a popula
tion capable of supplying the-' fight
ing forces with produce. A popula
tion would be built up of citizens
ready to assist in carrying out the
military plans fdr the defense of the
key to tho Pacific a popujation of
small farmers identified with the
progress of Hawaii nei.
