for tho oflicinl organ's cnudidnte to

Wallowing about ia tho sand
bank of cowardice and politicnl
distress, tho oflicinl orgnn casts
about for something with which to
civor its rnnk disloyalty to the
United States. It now runs
ngainst n Hand heap marked
"Damn Sownll,'" nnd seeks to
keep tho "duran Sewnll" sand fly
ing in the nir so ns to bliud the
peoplo to damaging oflicinl con
duct which tho official orgnn dares
Tho oflicinl organ knows the in
sido oflicinl history of its neutra
lity campaign nnd, sinco Dowoy's
victory, lias evaded the truth of the
neutrality situation nnd sought by
overy menus possiblo to covor tbo
disloyal official tracks. Really wo
ennnot blnruo tho. orgnu of the
mighty for its shifty, fly-by-night
efforts to koop clear of facts. In
following this policy it has simply
dnnced around tho circlo nnd con
demned its own constituents in nn
attempt bombard Sownll.
Now tbo subsidized oflicitl
montbpieco says that wbon Min
ister Sowall in his flag raising
speech roforrod to tho "timid and
the selfish" ho "insulted tho mou
who had inaugurated nnd main
tnincd tbo revolution." Tho
official orgnn has indeed
brought out something now. It
says, aftor months of "studiously
avoiding" the uoutrality proposi
tion: "That 'timid nnd selfish'
coat tbntMinistorSownll threw out
was an insult to uf, but it ills us, it
fits tho ollioiul orgm, it II U the
DjIo circle, nnd now as wo enn't
ovada it, wo mast put that coat
H lifif wBl- '-Aittotm t '"'. ..'i'h - ..
Tho organ of tho enndidnto who
hnsn't tho honest conrngo to dc-
claro himself, boldly admits tbnt
Minister Sownll's roferonco to tho
"timid and tho sottish" was n well
desorved shot that hit plumb in
tho middlo of tho high oflicinl cir
cle. No one evor gnvo tho matter
n; passing thought until tho official
orgnn told us all about it this
morning. Tho orgnn now ostnb
lishes tho fact that tho foreigners
here wero not tho only enomics
tho United States had to contend
with; that prominent officials who
headed tho revolution against tho
Quoen, woro nlso nt tho bend of
nn nttompted revolution ngninst
Hawaii's American policy. It
now appears that Mr. Sowall
spoke mora advisedly than ho
Wo must express admiration
for tbo audacity of nn oflicinl
orgnn that ndmits tbnt its consti
tuents woro "panic stricken
wretches" who had to bo "pulled
from under tho beds," nnd cour
age inspiring "cordinls" of Amo
ricnu patriotism poured down tboir
necks, by tbo American Minister
before thoy were rondy to'"tottor up
t) tho nltar of dovotiou," to stnnd
firmly by tboir doclnred American
principles. Wo can butadmiro tbo
oflicinl organ's confession that
wo'tk American kuoos nnd trem
bling Amoricnu hearts sent tho
high officials of Hawaii scurrying
t) hido under neutrality bods
wbon tho United States was facing
n crisis. What interesting nows
this will bo to tho friends of an
nexation in Washington who
fought for annexation from tho
first and stood by tho Hawaiian
Republic through thick and thin,
right or wrong. How pleasant for
thom to know that tho men thoy
havo idealized, nnd given credit as
sturdy, loynl Americans are in fact
tbo men who donned tho coat of ti
mid selfishness at tbo most critical
period in tbo wbolo annexation
Tho organ says "when neutra
lity was abandoned tho pross
soemed to regard it as a trivial in
cident and hac nothing to say ns
to tho cxtromo perils of tho hour,
sugar stocks did not drop, etc,
etc." True, thrico true. And why ?
Tbo official organ was tbo only
paper that advocated tho neutrali
ty crime. Forty-eight hourB aftor
tho oxecutivo forwarded its offer of
tho Hawaiian Islnnds to tho
United States tbo news of Dowoy's
victory in Manila was
rocoivod. And whon this nows
from Dowoy was received tbo
official organ immediately hauled
in its cowardly white noutrnlity
ting, joined in tho choering sonti
mont of tbo hour nnd yolled "We
killed tho bear." It wns not gen
crnlly known in Honolulu, thtsnt
the last minute tho Executivo was
forced into line, nnd nftor much
argument nnd urging sent forwnrd
tbo document that gavo them a
glorified idoalizod namo in Wash
ington. Tho bravery exhibited
by tho neutrality organ wns liigh
nnd mighty after Dowoy's, vic
tory. Tho Exocutivo of Hawaii did
waver nnd shift nnd oringo. Tho
oflicinl organ ndmits it. Now toll
us tho story of tho serious compli
cations into which the wavering
attitudo of tho Executivo near
ly forced tbo United States.
The official organ knows it. Does
tho organ daro tell it?
Tbo organ throws mud at tho
"ouly candidate," but it has not
thecouiago to propose a candidate.
It does not evon stand behind tho
undeclared candidato Dolo. Is it
truo that tho Advortiser, tho offi
cial governmental organ has not
tho courago to namo n cnudidato?
Is it true that it is waiting to seo
which way tbo cnt is going to
jump boforo honestly supporting
President Dolo? It tries to mako
fun of a candidato who has re
sponded to the call of tho local
Americans, and with its usual
cowardico presouts no othor namo
to charm tho public.
When tho Executivo of. Hawnii
wnvored and trombled in its Amo
ricanism of May 1898, why in tho
nnmo of tho Ilnwniinu Republic
idols and tho cringing Dolo angels
should tho Executivo bo consider
od tho proper man to represent
tho Americans of tho torritory and
tho country in 1899? What won
der is it that tho official organ has
no cnudidato who dares como out
boforo local pooplo and nsk for
support. Tho orgnn's candidate
would havo to nsk for support.
Ho has no support without tho
asking, and wo nro inclined to
suggest that tho organ's unde
clared candidato cannot command
tho full, hearty support of his
own cabinot. Is tbo Advertiser
prepared to Bay that he can? Tho
official orgnn hns not tho courngo
or tho mnttor of fnct powder to as
sert any prestige for its candidate.
It can only throw cowardly mud
at tho candidate who hns tho
courage of American convictions
and responds to tho request of tho
pooplo of Hawnii.
