Of course tho Advertiser isn't
angry at being forced into Iho
ououou tho neutrality proposition.
Its reserve dignity has been some
thing wonderful. True, it must
be rather galling to havo had to
buck down on every un-American
view it has championed and thoy
aro many but the Advertiser
shows its inherent weakness by
attempting to throw mud at Spe
cial Agent Sowall. This last is
also anothor nvklonco of tho Ad
vertiser's oumity towards anyoue
who dares express a bold, square
unwavering American sentiment.
The official organ has a fit ovory
time it notices tho growing
strength of truo Americanism iu
this territory. Another examplo
of its Democratic cowardico is
given in tho fact that four months
elapsed before tho official organ
discovered that Minister Sowall
made an "ill-advised stump speech"
on flag-raising day. Howover the
Advertiser has demonstrated on
many occasions that tho gallod
jado ha3 to winoe sooner or lator,
and it is not surprising that it
gives somo foolish oxcuso and
tries to put tho blamo oo someone
outside tho long idealizod ollicin!
When condemning Minister So
wall for his speech, the official
organ forgets that k hasn't had
much if anything to say on neu
trality sinco Dewey a victory iu
Manila. On tho 9th of May tho
Advertiser advocated ordering tho
Bennington to sea aud doclaring
Hawaiian neutrality. On tho 12th
of tho same month, tho day Dow
oy's victory was assured, tuo Ad
vertiser said: "This is not the
hour for tho cloae balancing of
chancos. Fed by tho rich bounty
of its United Statos policy, wo are
bound to placo ourselves at its dis
posal, if tho cao domands it, oven
if annexation is not an accom
Witness tho oxcoodingly moral
thoughts of tho official organ be
fore Dewoy's victory.

of official organ thought after
If tho official organ had the
courage of its conviction, iustoad
of a woak cowardly fear of the
wonderful Spanish fleet in Philip
pine wators why did it so sudden
ly change its neutrality tune
after Dowoy'e victory. Well may
the official mouth-piece take texts
from uttr rinco3 other than those
expressed in its own 'Columns
How quickly it forgot " moral ob
ligations" to Spain aftor Dowey's
Now as to neutrality: if it was
right for Hawaii to place itself at
tho disposal of tho Unitod States
ofter Dewey smashed tho Spanish
fleet in Manila, it was manifestly
treason from tho Amortcan stand
point, from which tho officials hore
wero supposed to act, to oven con
sider neutrality whilo Spanish war
was ponding. Tho "rich bounty"
on whioh Hawaii had boon fed
by tho Unitod StateB was no
lirgor on May 12 than it was m
This is indeed a "pitiful inci
dent" which tho Advortisor has
studiously avoided. It is an inci
dent that brings out tho clear cut
cowardico and lack of honest
American patriotism that pervaded
official circles. Tho Advortisor
enjoys making faces t a loyal
American representative but
it does not daro to say
whoro its candidate for govornor
stood when tho question of neu
trality was first brought up. It
forgets what a remarkably pecu
liar influence Dewey's victory had
upon its "moral obligations."
True, tho offer of Hawaii to tho
United States was forwarded a
day or two previous to tho receipt
of the news of Dowey's victory.
If tho ollicial organ wants to dis
cuss tho insido history of this
affair wo will bo pleased to ask
onr contemporary some questions.
Now as to (ho "moral obliga
tion." It is really funny for an
official organ that roprcsonts offi
cials who wore so bravo whon the
men of the U. S. S. Philadelphia
wore thought to bo about to land,
to bogin to talk about "moral ob
ligation" whon threatened with a
pesky little Spanish fleet in Phil
ippine waters. ,Wo admiro tho
stand tho officials made against
tho Glovcland policy, but all tho
glory gained in that incidont was
lost by tho wavoring, weak kneed
bickering when tho United Statos,
Hawaii's bounty foeding, protect
ing frioud was forced into an in
ternational crisis. It is a woll
known fact that it was tho "mon
in tho ranks" who demanded that
tho Exocutivo of Hawaii should
not waver iu its friendship to tho
Unitod States whatevor happonod.
It is tho "mon in tho'ranks," tho
loyal Amoricana of Hawaii who
now ask that in tho futuro official
make up of this territory, tho mon
at the head of affairs shall bo mon
who havo not wavered, mon who
believo in patriotic American sen
timent, men who stand by their
flag and thoir nation "richt or
wrong," mon who, whon thoir
nation is in critical places, do not
run to the woods and put up tho
white flag of cowardly interpreted
"moral obligation," mon truo to
their colors through thick and
thin. Finally as loyal Americans
they want at tho hoad of affairs a
man who has over been steadfast
in strong American principles.
Such a man is Harold M. Sowall.
