The Hawailans Were Worthy of the Fran
chiseNo Fear of Their Hissing
Dr. J. S. McGrew appeared bo-
foro tho Hawaiian Commission
yesterday and, nftor spoakiug for
a little while- ou tho Portuguese
question, wont directly to tho
question of suffrage for tho native
Hawaiions. Ho was in favor of no
restriction whatevor, such as Pro
sidont Dolo and his Ministors
advocated. Ho had boon an an
nexationist over since hb had come
to tho country, but ho had also
been a friend of tho natives. More
than throo-fourths of the Hawai
iaus wero able to road and write
aud had ns much of a right to
vote, auu more evou, than ho him
self. Tho country had boon taken
away from tho natives and a bot
tor one given them. Was there
any justice, and right, in placing
restrictions on the rightful owuors
of tho land?
Tho following question was
asked Dr. McGrew: "Supposing
tho Portuguese, Hawaiiaus and
.Japauoae should undo, would they
not frame iniquitous laws ? "
Dr. McGrew auswered that ho
was not afraid of tho judgment of
tho uativos. Tho very tnon who
under royalty, wore proved to have
tho uativo voto which put them in
to ollice, and glad to live under
tho laws tbo natives made, should
not bo tho onos to clamor now
aftor a restriction.
In regard to labor, Dr. McGrew
said ho wub in favor of restricting
Chinese and Japanese immigra
tion. There woro enough of the
two nationalities horo now.
