In describes the proceedings attending
the transfer of the Hawaiian Islands to the
United States In his message, President
McKlnley states that he had authorized
Admiral Miller and the "United States Min
ister" to make the transfer. No further
ment on of these officers Is made. Aside
from the attitude taken by the Advertiser
towards Mr. bewail, as a candidate lor gov
ernor, the mention of the name of Mr. H. M.
Sewall as the American Minister in such an
important document as the Presidential
message, w ould have gratilied not only this
paper, but all Americans who took part In,
or were interested in the ceremony of the
transfer. U woulJ have fixed In one of the
most historical documents of the year the
netsonality of one of the prominent men.
That the President did not specially men

that stirring music: "We are making It hot

Taking tbe mHJority report of
tbo Hawaiian Commission as a
wbolo it is gonorally satisfactory
to tbo peoplo of Hawaii. In tbe
matter of citizousbip tbo commis
sion bas shown itself liberal
minded and no unnecessary bars
will be put boforo tbo nativo Hn
waiians or foreigners who bnve
previously had tho rights of Ha
waiian naturalization. Tho natives
are taken in as a whole with uo
questions naked. This is justice,
it is American.
In tbo matter of franchise, how
over, tho report makes a serious
slump in Amorican principlo
which wo aro inclined to believe
will bo oliminated beforo tbo
measuro nasses Contrress. If the
people of Hawaii aro worthy to
be olothod with tbo full citizan
ship of tho United States, they aro
also worthy oach and everyone to
stand on an equal footing when
they go to tbo polls to untpo tho
men wbo shall represent them.
To carry out tho full truo Ameri
can principle tbo people Bhould
have full sway in tho local legisla
ture, tbobousoand in tho senate.
Tho p ople of Hawaii will bo sat
silled, gratified and benefited by
the fall liberal sway of tbo Ainer
ican principlo that legislative
bodies shall represent tho wbolo
peoplo and not a favored class. If
I ho peoplo aro given full rights of
morican citizousbip, tbo valuo of
that citizenship should not bo de
preciated iu value by tho barrier
of a proporty qualification tacked
on to tho franchise. Tho eizo of a
man's pocketbo k or tbo land ho
possesses is by no means a fair
Vmorican estimate to place upon a
man's right to have a "say" in the
affairs of his local govornment.
Let no fiction of Americanism
hold sway in tbe local affairs of
tbe Hawaii territory.

Mr. Hawaii is away nUcau ot Mr.
Dole in our estimation.
If President MoKinloy wnnls
to favor the Hawaiians, bo as in
the course of timo the bitter feel
ing which lies deep in ovory ka
naka's breast (caused by Dole and
hit rebels robbing them of tboir
oouutry) he must appoint a Gov
ernor who did not havo a band in
the robbing, in other words, ap
point an outsider. No local man
will ever, or can fill tbo bill satis
factorily to us. That bittor feeling
could never bo blottou out (time
i'self could not efface it) if Dole
or any o her local man wero
appoiuted to the position.
If Mr. Sewall or any outsider
ore appointed to tbe position it
would have a tendency to arnelior
at tbat feeling and as time go's
on, wo would perhape, little by
little, come lo tbe conclusion, it is
perhaps all for tho best (although
tho loss of our flag is a bitter pill
to bwnllow). It would bo soma con
solation, howovor, to know that
tboso who were psrtieB to tbe rob
bery did not have a chance to en
joy tho fruits of "that steal."
I would go further, Mr. Editor.
I would havo every man's sou of
tbom (family compact and all)
boosted out and their places filled
by soma outsider, make a cloan
swoop, and tbon perhaps bo mo
worthy Hawaiians wbo aro out
