IIII.O AM) TIIU TKIUUTORY.
Ono of the interesting features
of the kick made against tho Tor
ritoiial bill by tho peoplo of Hilo
and Hawaii is tho fact that 'those
oitizensdo not endorso tho general
Bohomo of tho constitution of tho
Ropubho of Hawaii. The atten
tion of our Hilo friends is called
to changes that are being roado in
"Washington which are in lino
witUtbo American idea. The
rjUkpawitativoa of the American
peoplrt at Washington are doing
tho work that is expected of them.
It is worthy of notice too that Son
ator Cullom, chairman of the
Commission and n member of tho
cnmmitlco that reported tho Ha
waiian bill to tho Senate, is not
seriously objecting to tho Amer
icanizing process through which
tho bill is passing.
Great stress is boing laid upon
the possibilities of town and
country organizations. Hilo peo
plo seem to tako it for granted that
Honolulu is bound to oinoh
thorn whichover way tho logisla
tiyp elections go. The idea sooms
(o bo that tho organization of
local municipalities will bo staved
off as long as possible Iu this
respect our Hilo frionds aro cry
ing beforo thoy aro hurt or before
thore aro any particular indica
tions that tho pooplo of tho terri
tory want to hurt thorn. Tho
provniling sentiment of the terri
tory from Hawaii to Niihau is
against the continuanco of tho
present centralization. Under
tho present rogimo tho pondulum
has swung about as far as
possiblo.in this direction, and tho
peoplo aro simply waiting for tho
United States to give thorn tho
opportunity to swing it tho
other way toward indepondont
municipalities. This sontiment
is boing voiced in tho universal
domand for an Amorican at tho
head of affairs. It is also evidonc-
cd by tho fact recognized through
out the torritorry that the first
logislaturo will not be in sym
pathy with tho present official rogimo.
The disposition of Congress
will bo to creato such a territorial
law that tho people may work out
there own salvation. Hilo's dis
position as expressed in tho
Horald is "bettor no ohango in
present conditions than a failuro
to got just what wo want." To
champion such a plan is to block
tho American progress for fully a
year with no guarantee for ful
filling their domands at tho ond
of that period. Isn't it bottor to
get tho entering wedgo of Ameri
can progress started as soon as
NOT ALTOGKTHICIl WRONG.
Soma of tho merchants in Ho
nolulu have seemingly taken of
fense at Mr. Sowall for having
written a letter to Washington
asking for the prompt enforce
ment of United Statos tariff laws
here owing to a schomo of "somo
business mon to transship goods
of European manufacture to the
United States and thus realize an
extra profit on account of tho dif
ference in the tariff.' Mr. bewail J
was not altogether wrouc in his
statoment, though tho intention to
tako advantago of tho tariff may
not have been on tho part of white
merchants. Moro than a year ago
an exceptionally bright Japauoso,a
mercbantin Honolulu disclosed to
tho writer just such a scheme and
be afterward went to Japan for
tho purpose of buying goods to bo
taken from Hawaii to tho United
States in tho evout of annexation.
Mr. Sowall may havo heard of thia
plau, for moro than ono Japanese
was concerned and information on
such subjects is quickly nud freo
ly disseminated. Tho Honolulu
merchants aro naturally and just
ly jealous of thoir reputation for
integrity and aro prompt to deny,
and provo tho denial of any charge
rotlocting upon their business
methods. iho .Herald has no
