At this remote distance the Vene
zuelan complications afford a most
i ntercsting topic for speculation. In
this community are to be found
subjects and citizens of nearly all
the nations interested. So it can
be imagined the camps of contro
versy that would spring up in the
event of serious trouble among the
great fleets in Carribcan waters.
The cablegram which stated that
President Roosevelt had been
chosen by the powers to arbitrate
the whole matter, is proof positive
that the naval demonstration of the
allies was in good faith purposed to
bring a slow debtor to time, rather
than for the ulterior purpose of
showing a left-handed contempt for
the Monrde doctrine. The care,
taken by Italy, to assure the United
States upon this point, when she
cast her lot with Germany and
"Itngland; together with the fact
that Washington and Berlin have
had mutual understanding as to
Venezuela for the past year, pre
cludes the idea that a concert of
Uurope has sprung up at this time
to test the flexibility or brittleness
of the doctrine of Monroe.
The presence of England among ;
the allies sending warships to the
coast of America, will cause adverse
comment among those who have
been rejoicing in recent years over
American-British good feeling. But
the very fact that British ships
were in the fleet that went to Car
acas, should set at rest all fear
concerning motives of Kaiser and
King. Great Britain would not at
this time lend herself either to an
overt or covert attack upon a
cardinal American doctrine, a doc
trine, which Britons, in almost
every way except officially, have
conceded to be just and wholesome

Editor H11.0 Triiiunb: Permit
a reader to express his hearty agree
ment with your editoral last week
regarding the attitude of congress
toward Hawaii, particularly with
reference to the industrial or econo
mic needs of the islands. There
has been much talk about Ameri
canizing Hawaii. No man in the
horoscope of the springs, and which, it is agreed,
was the best possible site for the
proposed reservoir. The bids were
called for and received, with the
understanding that the reservoir
wastobedug out of thesoft volcanic
rock of Piihonua, and it was with
a good deal of surprise that it was
learned, after the contract had been
virtually let, that the government
had leased the land where it was
proposed to build the reservoir.
The land is owned by the govern
ment, but is leased to Colonel Baker,
who in turn has sub-leased it tq a
Mr. Turner. Attempts to buy the
leases from Turner have been met
with a price which was considered
exorbitant by Superintendent Coop

Moreover, when the question was
being discussed in the Senate,
Senator Stewart, lately returned
from a mission to Europe, stated
that America should take the in

to remark that "Our recent acquisi

jealousy of all the European powers
and that they might attack us at
any time." He incidentally re
marked that it would take us two
decades yet to build up a navy

These warnings are well and
good but they do not expose grave
in the past.
The Americanization of Hawaii
so far has been in name only. The
adjustment of local laws to conform
with American ideas of justice has
been opposed at every turn by the
men in Hawaii who were loudest
for annexation. The local adminis
tration of Hawaiian affairs goes on
as before cumbered with effete relics
of a discarded past.
On top of this change of front on
the part of the original Annexation
party, comes the lately enunciated

sections of the United States, must

So far, there has been a funda
mental antagonism between the two
political factions in Hawaii, that 1
have not yet seen pointed out. It
is this; One faction opposes a re
publican form of local government
and asks for special congressional
legislation based on our peculiar in
dustrial and economic conditions.
The other faction has rightly
clamored for the advent of repub
lican forms in local affairs. But it
has insisted that regardless of the
fate of our sugar industry, we must
submit (o labor laws made for San
Francisco and Pennsylvania.
Both of these wings of opinion'
are irrational and unpatriotic. The
