: Even with its nrisreprosonta
tlon nud partial quotations the
Advertiser Iihb still failed to prove
ttmt tbe Bulletin stated nnythinu
but facts when it suid on Decem
ber 8, 1898:
"It is n well-known fact that it
is the mon in the ranks ulio tie

inatter) should not waver in its
friendship to tho Uuited States
t'KHViniSION AM) Ill.t'l'l.
i With its usual ponchnnt for
misrepresentation tho otlicinl
organ seeks to find excuse for its
cow rdly neutrality campaiyu by
quoting from a serios of interviews
published in tho Bulletin of
May 0, 1898. Tho Advertiser
could not havo taken up and
spread on its pages a series of in
terviews that would givo more
satisfaction to tho men who are
now nud havo been working for
tho advancement of straightfor
ward loyal Americanism in this
As tho official orp.au well knows
and tho people of tho territory
know, tho question was, Shall Ha
waii declare neutrality? This
was tho question, tho only ques
tion that tho bubiiiens men of Ho
nolulu auswered in tho interviews
published' in tho Bulletin of
Tho Advertiaerseoks to smother
Seuator J. A. McCandloss with a
thick coat of mud, by simon pure,
absolute misrepresentation. Sen
ator MuCandloHs' name doe no!
appear in the Bulletin of May 0,
1898 in connection with the nou
trality matter. RopresentHlive
McCandlesa is quotod iu tho fol
"Suya ho thinks wo should
stand as we are. That there in no
need of declaring that ire are neu
tral." Not only does tho Advertieer
miareproeont Senator JlcCand
lees, bat it is nlso euroful to omit
tho Bthtoraent of Represen
tative McCandless that Ha
waii should not declare neutrality.
The Advertiser up to the receipt
of the uewe of Dewoy's victory was
us'np all tho arguments possible
to inlluencH the people of Hawaii
to support President Dolo in b
declaration of neutrality. The
official orgau cliquo had tho as
Bistiuco of Hon. A S. Hartwell
and of u member of tho Cabinet.
This is tho full text of what Gon.
Hartwoll said: ''The noutrality
of Hawaii is generally assumed or
takou for granted aud it would be
impossible to concoivo that Hawaii
as a Bovereigu power would do anj
act hostile to Spain. That which
is ineaut can usually bo expressed
with perfect safety and I think it
would ie wise to avoi i any ijohbi
bio inforenco that tho negotiation
of the treaty of iinuoxutiou in
volves Hawaii in any war in whioh
tho United States is ougsged
Thero is nothing whioh chu be
construed as hostile to tho United
Stales in the ordinary official in
timation or notice that Hawaii is
Btrictlj neutral, and therefore it
seems to me to be proper to givr
Givo it full publicity, emblazon
it on tho reemds in Hawaii aud in
"Washingtonfoil tho poople of thi
territory and tho people iu Wa-h
ington what G. n. Hartwell said
anil' did in connection with the
neutrality intrigue. Emblazon
the record of tho eo-called Amer
ican annexationists who assisted
and listoucd willingly to a treason
able action which tho ofiioial
organ now trios to excuso by mis
ropresening tho statements of busi
ness men. Namotho forces and tho
men between whom President Dole
wavered jn tho official organ's de
based neutrality campaign.
Well may tho Advertiser say
that it had now "alluded" to neu
trality. Out of fifteen men inlor
viewed by tho BULLETIN on May
Cth only four opouly supported
tho Advertiser's campaign, nnd
ono of these, J. B. Athorton, wo
know gave his opinion undor n
misapprehension of tho schomo
which tho official organ had on
Horo is a statement by P. O.
Jones that tho Advertiser dob not
"alludo to." "Staud by her (the
United States) aud take chances."
Tin's is anothor parngraph pub

which tho Advorlisor doos not

should the Prosident pro

President cannot do it, because ho

country for annexation to the
B. F. Dillingham said "I think
we should wait until tho necessity
for declaring noutrality arises."
Tho Advertiser in its official cam
paign advocated tho declaration
of noutrality. Is thero any
thing in Mr. Dillingham's
statement showing that ho favored
such a course. The official organ's
misrepresentation of Mr. Dilling
ham iB clear cut and represents
the lowest order of political mani
pulation. Never has tho official organ
tjiven more open and vulnerable
evidence of the weakness of the
disloyal American causo it has
championed, than in its attempt to
pervert facts and misrepresent
public men and the rank aud Glo
of tho annexationists. Tho Ad
vertiser simply proaonts an auda
cious perversion o bluff.
The fact is and this must bo
apparent to those who have fol
lowed tho discussion of tho action
of the Executive iu contemplating
a declaration of neutrality, when
sober consideration by those in
authority horo and a decout son-o
of their moral obligations toward
the Uuitod States forbade tbe tol
eration such a thought there is a
range that this discussion has not
