HliAPPOINTEO GOVERNOR OF AMERI
CAN TERRITORY. "As a member of
thf' family of nations, we must
dell.ire our position, because we are
a liu.iritime State. As a neutral state
si. (Hawaii) should follow, in due
tiifie, tlie example of oilier neutral
stltes, and proclaim her neutrality. Such
n ffoclamatlon would require the Henninn
toji to leave this port within 24 hours,

Hyt to leave St. Vincent at once. Should

help ourselves, but would show an honest
neutrality." From the Advertiser of May

MAN HITT AND PLATFORM ON WHICH
CONGRESS PASSED Till: ANNEXATION
W-SOLUTION "But without any words
f jmi us or any assurances from our Gov
ernment, notw ithsLmding the pressure to
which it lias been subjected, the brave
little Hawaiian Government, loving Artie
rfca better than Spain and contiJent in the
jtstice of Hie gre.it American people as a
ijiilJ trusts its father, remains unchanged
li its purpose."
' Tho oflk-inl organ, so accustomed
to boiug led, continues to follow
nSeekly in tho wnko of tin- Bui.le
;"H.iil 0 ilumliiu," but there's
no "happy lniul" in tho refrain tie
sung on board the poor old City of
; It is to bo hoped that by next
Christmas the children of the free
IkindoruartenB can celebrate their
holiday nt Anla jiark.
While IIouolulu has hnd a fenst
of ouUiilo entertaining talent, it
still finds itself ready to hear and
bo pleased with our loenl talent.
Judging from the mercantilo re
ports tho holiday season finds Ha
waii prosperous; merchants with
large stocks ou baud and tho peo
ple with money to buy.
It is a romarkable coincidence
that the ollioial organs of Spain
and tho official organ of Hawaii
stand on the sarao footing regard
ing the ndvanco in the respective
territories of liberal Americanism.
Now that Hawuii'B destiny is set
tled, it behooves the Chamber of
Commerce to establish closo con
nections with tho Philadelphia
Mustum, and any and all com
mercial organizations in the
The establishment of another
savings institution indicates that
whilo tho larye financiers nro to be
supplied with their national bauk
ing privileges, the small investor
nnd day laborer is not to bo for
gotten. One of tho first important mat-1
tors to bo taken up by Congress
will bo special appropriations ne
cessitated by the war. It remains
to bo seon whether tho Democrats
and Populiets will now givo tho
united suppoit to these appropria
tions that they gavo tho noted fifty
million appiopriation fordofonso.
John Hyslop, a mariner of con
siderable note, who was one of the.
survivors of the steamer Mohegan
wreck, indicates that tho exoluBivo
use of olectrio lights on ocoau
steamers is a serious mistake. Mr.
Hyslop says: "It was wrong and
unfortunate that tho vessel was
supplied only with electric lights.
Whoa hor engiues stopped ovory
lijjht was extinguished, and we
wero left in darkness. ' Had there
boon oven a single lamp" at tho
masthead, ij would have servo 1 as
a beacon to guide tin life savers to
us, and many irgr. lives might
have beon saved."
Summing up its comment ou
Chief Juttiee Judd's labeas cor
pus decision in the Chinese immi
gtation case, tho Advertiser says,
"It is fortunuto that tho opinion
is clear and well considered."
This is tho prettiest example of
damning the Chief Justice with
faint praiso that tho official organ
has olTored. No other infereuco
bo drawn from this than that
tho official organ fearod an ombi
guotiB and ill considered opinion.
It has not tho courngo of its con
viction to eny tho Ohiof Justico is
right, and to staud honestly by its
official friend. Thus tho official
organ has its friendly knifo out to
slash tho judicial throat of tho
compact it represents. Mr. Judd's
decision is a strong one and up-
poals to tho sentiment of common
justico among laytnon. Tho Chi
nese in question left Hawaii bo
fore nunexation, and fulfilled all
tho requirements of tho law. Tho
annexation resolution hnd not
been cvon completed. Had the
s ime mon left Hawaii after tho
annexation resolution had boon
signed by tho President, tho pro
blem of decision would havo boen
ItlXOIll) OK MISHKIMIKHBXTATION.
Tho winning strength of tho
local Amoricans and annexation
ists in their support of Mr. Sewall
for tho first governor of Hnwnu is
now fully demonstrated by the
official organ desarting Mr. Dolo
and confining its attontion to
personal attack upon Mr. Sewall.
Tho Bulletin has proved con-
clusively thut Prosidont Dolo has
not tho support of any nowspnpor
or any organization in this terri
tory. After President Dolo ex
plicity announced, in a dictated
statemont, that ho could not
nominate hirasolf, after Presi
dent Dolo in that statement
drew attention to the wisdom
of local people expressing
their preferences for governor,
the official organ owned nnd edit
ed by his former ollioial friends
refuses to endorse his candidacy.
The policy of tho official orgau is
now "Give us anyone for governor
excopt President Dole or nn honest,
Tho Advertiser has by its own
statement proved itself a studious
perverter of facts and a champion
of misrepresentation. It proved
this whan it stated that Mr. Sewall
was circulating a petition among
tho nntives. That statoment was
a bare faced lie. It showed itself
an organ of false statements when
it said it had had no conforencos
with any one in the Dolo party
rogarding tho governorship "with
in a year." It misreprents public
sentiment when it charges tho
rank and file of tho annexation
party with advocating tho appoint
ment of a corpet-baggor. It knows
that Mr. Sewt.ll has resided hero
longor and has largor local inter
ests than many mon who havo
beon favored with offices by tho
Dolo government. The Advertiser
raises a bugbear about Japanese
laborers, when it knows that who
ovor is appointed governor, and is
honest in tho administration of his
office, must and should place an
honest American interpretation
upon American laws. As wo have
previously stuted, the official organ
champious as it did in its cowaid-
ly war neutrality campaign dis
loyalty to tho American flag and
disloyalty to American principle.
With such a record behind it,
possibly no sat prise should bo felt
that tho Advertiser is now disloyal
oven to Mr. Dolo.

LOKKIN A. THURSTON'S ARGUMENT
PRUVIOUS TO ANNEXATION. Shut off
the source of (The Chinese and Japanese)
supply, and In ten years there will not be
Asiatics enough left in Hawaii to have
any appreciable effect. The
cane sugar planter of Hawaii pays now
somewhat less wages per month than
does the beet sugar planter, although not
as much less as Is generally supposed, the
average laborer in Hawaii costing the
planter from fifteen to eighteen dollars per
month. Under annexation, the Atinlir
mjijihf of labor will be cut off, (the Italics
are Mr. Thurston's) and this slight ad
vantage will be eliminated.
LORRIN A. THURSTON'S PAPUR, Till;
ADVERTISER, ON DEC. 16, 1898. The
Dole Government, In order to prevent
bankruptcy and ruin, permitted the im
portation of Japanese laborers. Those in
terested in the business Industries of the
country (Hawaii) will see at once the dan
ger of carpet-bag (American) government.
The BULLETIN has simply presented
the arguments of Mr. Thurston and the
official Dole circle before annexation.

no reason why the players should

there has boen no practice, they
will not turn out to tho cames.
