A Rebuke to the Governor.
If one editoi is to have his own way, Governor Carter will berepd out
of the Republican Party. Ever since the downfall of Andrews the Great,
his subsidized organ has been emitting a piteous moan, which it has
beeu painful to hear. There have been several outcropp'tngs of the kick
that comes too late, and by reason of his membership in the Young
Men's Republican Club and the District Committee, J. T. Stacker has
displayed a master hand in drafting resolutions of condemnation against
the Governor for his audacity in the removal of L. A. Andrews as Sheriff
of Hawaii. On last Thursday night at the meeting of the Executive
Committee of the District Committee, Mr. Stacker introduced arid se
cured the adoption of a resolution, which is printed below. It is almost
identical in form to the resolution introduced in the Young Men's Re
publican Club by the same author on the Monday previous, and which,
after considerable discussion, was finally tabled by being referred to a
committee consisting of S. L. Desha, R. A. Lyman, Jr., and XV. H.
Beers. The District Committee resolution, which was forwarded to
Chairman Robertson by the last mail, is as follows:
Whereas, There exists in the First Representative District an Execu
tive Committee of the District Committee of the Republican party, duly
organized according to the rules of the Republican party, members of
said committee having been duly elected in convention held at Hilo,
Hawaii, on September 10, 1904; and
Whereas, Rules governing the Republican party in the Territory of
Hawaii provide that appointments' to public office shall be made upon
the endorsement of the precinct and district committees; and
Whereas, Appointments have been made contrary to the recommenda
tions of those committees and of teuor without the wishes of the com
mittees being asked; therefore, be it
Resolved, That the committee, while renewing its allegiance to the
Republican party, does, by this resolution, express its dissatisfaction
with the policy adopted by the Governor, George R. Carter, in appoint
ing to positions in the Government men who have not beeu endorsed in
accordance with the rules of the party, and that he be requested to
adhere to these rules in making appointments in this district in the
future; and be it further
Resolved, That this resolution be spread upon the minutes of this
committee meeting, and a copy be forwarded to the Republican Central
Committee in Honolulu.
