iWith its uBiinl rapidity of tl top
ping a hot politicnl potato, the offi
cial organ suddenly withdraws
frcp further discussion of neutral
ity; wntters. It "studiously nvoids"
reroronco this "pitiful incident"
begins to tell soino more
uy stories and make races at
Uirold M. Sowall whom it ropro
eefts as "tho only candidate."
&Tita latest turn of tho official
organ's aciobatic, where-aro-we-at
ptlipy still more forcibly indicates
thf fear and trembling with which
thi official circle, looks upon any
op Position to President Dole. The

' ?be utterances of tho ofiicial
orj an ato of such a nature that it
is iroper at this tiiiio to look at the
situation fairly. In tho first pUce
tho Advertiser is the mouthpiece
of tho official life of this territory
which for five long years has
been idealized as representing a
high standard of Amoricaniam. It
was this organ owned and control-
cd by these idealized officials that
headed tho campaiuu of treason
able neutrality when tho United
States was on the vergo of war
with Spain. It was this official
mouthpicco that usod what influ
ence it had to support the most
dishonorable chapter in tho his
tory of tho idealized Hawaiian Ex
ecutive. It is now tho official mouthpiece,
owned by L. A. Thurston, and
edited by W. N. Armstrong both
of whom spent hours in Washing
ton telling of tho superior Amer
icanism in tho higher official life
of Hawaii that alludes to tho
question of neutrality as "having
no practical value," that Hawaii in
ignoring the Spanish treaty was
only on a level with America's
ignoring treaties with the Indians
from no highor motives and of
no greater consoquoucu. This is
tho debased and dishonorable in
terpretation tho ofiicial organ puts
upon an action which President
Dole was forced into taking
by tho men who now support So
wall for governor.
into line, contrast this with tho
dishonor of official weakness that
hnd to bo forced into loyalty to Am
erica by tho mon in,the ranks. Give
honor wboro it is clue and let tho
advocates of dishonor, tho officials
who upheld treason toward tho
United States, bo pilloried beforo
tho peoplo thoy would have bo
trayed by their contemplated
Tho official organ says there is
only ono caudidato for tho
governorship, theroby stating what
it knows to bo a shifting, sidling,
cowardly evasion of facts. Presi
dent Sauford B. Dolo is kuown to
bo a candidate for tho governor
ship of Hawaii. If ho is not why
should somo of his boat friends
adviso him to withdraw from the
contest ? We admit that thcro is
but one caudidato who has hon
estly placed himself, ono man
who has accepted tho request of
tho peoplo to seek tho highest
executive, position of the territory
and L'ivo us nn administration
that shows no weakness of Amer
ican sentimont, no paudering to
tho enemies of our nation.
Is it inherent weakness that
causes Mr. Dolo to stand back and
not oponly declare himself ? Is
it fenr that his cause is a losing
one, and he wishes to bo in a post j
tion a few mouths later to say:.
"I didn't try for tho place ?" Does
Mr. Dolo consider it dishonorablo
to speak his mind and say "I am"
or "I am not" n.candidato for tho
governorship ? Is tho governor
ship of Hawaii of so little import
ance that Mr. Dolo considers it
boneath his notice ? If so ho is by
no means tho man for tho place

Such was not cstimato placed
upon this sublime and heroic act
by our countrymon in Washing

given by Congressman Hitt whou
ho said in the House of Represen
tatives: " But without any words from
us or any assurancqs from our

pressure to which it haB beou sub
jooted, the bravo little Hawaiian
Govornmont, loving America hotter
than Spain anil confidout in the
justice of tho great American peo
plu ns a child trusts its fathor, ro
mains unchanged in its purpose."
It wns not the foolish, debased
Americanism which tho official
organ preaches that caused theso
word of Mr. Hitt to. bo greeted
with applause and cheers through
out tho House. Let tho pooplo of
this territory, lot the peoplo of the
United States contrast tho honor

It is not American custom,
nor does it exomplify tho best
American sontimont for any
man to sit quietly in
the roar and seo which way tho
cat is going to jump. Any oflico
within tho gift of tho Amoricnu
peoplo or tho American President
should bo considered and is con
sidered by loyal Americans
worthy of tho aspiration of any
citizen to fill. The American ad
mires the man who mnkes his
stand in tho open, tho man who
says, "I considor tho position for

man who cannot nppreoiato the
honor of an upon, straightforward,
forciblo statement of where ho

William MoKinley did not win
tho support of tho Amorican poo
plo by looking around corners,
making faces at tho other fellow
and saying, "He's tho only candi

Aro Mr. Dolo and tho official
organ seeking to teach Wm. Mc
Kinloy a now kind of Amori-
canism tuat is weak, foolish,
wavering, an Americanism that
says "Wait till wo seo how things
aro going and thon get on and
ride." This being tho caso it is
not surprising that tho official
organ takes pleasure in condom-
ing tho men who forced President
Dolo to nccept tho Amorican in
