Tho ronupBt for Mr. Dolo to
go to Wellington will probably
nrrivo by tlio " next steamer."
Julion D. Ilnyno in tlio courts
of Nov York follows tho precedent
bo set iu Honolulu of defending
bi9 own enso. For cool bluff, Ju
lien Hayno is without n peer.
A funny fonturo of tlio "memo-
rablo enmpnign of 93" with which
a contemporary connects Col.
Fisher's namo iu n not corapli
mentary mnnuer, is that Prosidont
Dolo wns cotnmamlor-iu-cbief on
that memorable occasion.
Again tho oflicial organ demon
strates its ki-yang qualities,
Ticklo tho jackass under his ribs,
and he'll let his heols fly, hitting
men who hnvo no connection with
tho Bourco of his discomfort. Tho
moro tho beast kicks, tho moro
trouble it gots into. It evidently
hadn't interviewed Mr. McStocker.
Somo timo ago tho morning or
gan mado remarks about political
kuiGng. In its comment on Mr.
Dolo's minority roport to tho Com
mission, tho Advertiser gave n most
beautiful oxamploof political stab
bing iu tho hack. Tho Advertisor
has probably received ward from
Washington of tho impression
Mr. Dolo's minority has created
among tho members of Congress.
Tho watchwork of the oflicial or
gan now is: "Preparo to flop."
" "Wo prophesy that tho respect
ablo gontlomen who aro now figur
ing as 'anti-imperialistd,' if H'oy
aro remomborcd at all in history
as such many of them may be re
membered for other things they
will bo hold in memory with those
Prosidont Jefferson had ruined
himeolf and tho country by the
purchaso of tho Louisiana torn
tory, with thoao rospectablo gon
tlomen who assembled iu tho
Hartford Convention tho very
namo of which Boon becemo a by
word and with other respectable
gontlemon who havo, from timo to
time, and with excellent intentions,
placed themselves as obstacles to
stop tho development of this
country , and havo foiled." Boston
Tho key note of Lieutenant
Hobson's remarks boforo the
crowd on tho Pacific Mail wharf
was an expression of firm boliof
that the Amorican peoplo will not
provo to lack the capacity or tho
courage to accept and successfully
carry out any nntioual rosponsi
bilitythat may bo placed upon thorn
Contrnst this man, his career and
his ulterancos with that of tho
men who run from danger and
Beek to shirk tho responsibilities
of firm and courageous decision
when called upon to faco prob
lems brought by tho fortunes of
wur. j.i was mo sentiment ex
pressed by Hobson that created
the Amorican nation and has
made it whot it is today, a magui
ficont power ruled by and in tho
interests of tho people. Tho
grandeur of tho nation today is
the result of tho work of suoh
men as accomplished tho success
of tho late war. It is the main
spring of moral courage that grap
ples a problem fearlessly, that
gives tho United States its place
strong nud leading power; not
tho weak, shifting suoering cow
ards who amuso themselves by
casting slurs upon tho pooplo
and expounding tho nation's short
comings. Tlio spirit ot tuo coun
try in pooco and in war is to go
forward notwithstanding tho diro
croaking of tho obstaclo hunters,
who hang around tho rear ranks
searching for and feeding upon
tho carrion of disloyalty and cow
tiii: nicm' yi:au i:vi:nt.
Tho cordial Now Year's greet
ing extended to Ministor S. M.
Damon by tho Portagueso colony
wns a very pleasant tribute to one
of tho most prominont and popu
lar figures in the Hawaiian Cab
iuot. Mr. Damon has a quiot,
unassuming way of doing good;
ho sounds no trumpots and tho
people gonerally havo littlo knowl
edge of his good works until a
domoustrutiou liko that of New
Year's day crops out. It shows
that Mr. Damon in his private and
oflicial lifo keeps iu touch with tho
people; his oflicial position doos
not placo him abovo tho levol of
tho men who earn their daily
bread by tho sweat of thoir brow.
No bettor demonstration of this
could bo givon than tho siraplo,
spontaneous and yet comploto
expression of appreciative good
will that has boon voiced by tho
Portucueso people. Owing to
Mr. Damon's prominonco in
political lifo tho ovont
imraidiatoly sots cortain minds
at work forecasting and
commonting upon "Mr. Damon's
ambitions." Wo seo no reason
for tacking ulterior motives on
what was nothing moro and noth
ing less than a cordial uttoranco
of tho greetings of tho season, a
season when politics nro put asido
and the pleasantries of porsonal
esteem aro exchanged.
If any political significanca
wero attached to tho event, it could
only be iu liuo of tho proof of tho
statement often mado by this
papor that Mr. Damon is tho
strongest member of tho prcsont
Hawaiian Qovornmont, in tho es
timation of tho paoplo. Tho
Portuguoso required no urging,
po political miuipulation to se
cure faVorablu comment; they
simply took tho first opportunity
which custom and tho cedondar
givo for making public thoir
hearlfolt sentiments of gratitude.
