tho affairs of tho country. The
BulluTin does maintain that it is
an insult to tho Hawaiian raco to
comparo it with tho African raco
of tho Unitod- States, which, taken
as a wholo, represents ono of the
lowest,' ordors of citizenship found
in ourj country. Tho negroes aro

ents iu tho various districts. The
members havo not held thotneolves
aloof. They have kept in touch
with popular sentiment and tho
memorial is the result. They
havo been forced away from tho
cabinet, through whom thoy would
havo been glad to speak, and sim
ply gono ahead and spoken for
their constituents as they havo an
unquestionable right to do. As
representatives of a party thoy
wore held responsible, and thoy
havo not attempted to shirk tho
responsibility. Somo mombors of
tho party do not agreo with tho
memorial. That's all right; pro
eont a minority raomorial.
AMinilCAN IMUTV MKMOUIA
It is fair to supposo that F. J.
Lowrey's public letter is sort of a
minority report of tho Central
Committoa of tho American Union
party. While wo havo not tbo
honor of being tho mouth piece of
tho American Uuiou party, wo
must confess to tho belief that
Mr. Lowrey has not made good
his practical claim that tho action
erf tho comraittt-o was "irregular."
In- tho flrt place, tho Centra!
Committeo whs elected, not ap
pointed, and tho number of years
that havo elappd sinco that elec
tion is just ouo. True tho Central
Committee was not elected for
Iifp, but unless a new order of
politics ontirely unAmericnu is to
be instituted iu Hawaii, this com
tnitteo is looked upon as haviug
charge of tho affairs of tliH party
until the successors of its ptesout
membership aro appointed. If the
commit'eo has not right to act for
tho party, why d'd uot a 1 the
members opposed to the memoiiid
etay away fn-m th meeliny ? As
wo umlorttniul it, this Committee
elctd one year ago, iccoynizi g
that its tespousibility was to tbo
Now look ovor tho memorial.
Liberal territorial laws and a lib
oral francbiso aro asked. The
Hawaiians who accept tho situa
tion as it is, and tho Portugueso
request tho sarao thing. Tho hopo
is expressed that tho American
law may bo extended to Hawaii
i rtl. ?
as soon as possiuio. xuis is in
keeping with tho annexation
spirit. It is what Americans havo
reason to expect from a country
seeking absorption in tho Amor
icau Union. Tho only organiza
tion that has spuken against this
nolicv is tho Cbambor of Com
merce and it is found that this
body is not unanimous on tbo
subject. The question of tho
governorship is practically
tho only diversion made from the
beaten track of momorials. This
is something tbo Commission is
not likoly to deal with directly,
but after witnossing tho political
clmos here wo doubt whother tho
American mombers can draw tho
honest conclusion that a local
man for the first governorship
will servo tho best interest of Ha
waii or tbo United States.
Thus wo beliovo that tho
memorial of tho Central Commit
tee of the Amoricau Union party
is a fair expression of tho Ameri
can sontimout in Hawaii. It sug
gests no politicil impossibilities
aud shows an inclination to so
eppt auuoxation in the truo Ame
rican sense. If this does not rep
res nt truo American spirit, if it
is not a worthy exponent of Amo
ricin Union principles taken iu
the popular as well us tho party
seiiro, what doeB it represent?

toe that presents tho memorial in

principles and will outiuuo to

in thoir dealings with the Cabinet.
