Tho politicnl history of tho Unit

tho interests of tho peoplo havo
been hotter served by mon, ropro
B'nting particular local intorests,
working within the party, than by
going out and bpggiug for support
from overy To u, Diok and Harry

Tho Newlauds resolution states
that Hawaii transferred to tho
I United States tho "absolute feo
ittud ownership of public build
ings or edifices, ports, harbors,
.military equipments and all othor
public proporty of ovory kind and
description belonging to tho Gov

mont of tho Hawaiian torritory in
tho hnnds of President ilcKinloy.
Ilie clnsh between tho Executive

either tho Executive is nssuming
