Now that an election is nt hand,
it is to be hoped tht people of
Honolulu will necept tho oppor

formation of ti Ropuhliean organ

who acoaptsRepuhlicau principles
to tho Senate of Hawaii. The
opportunity is offered for
c'tizona of tho territory to de

stand upon tho broad aud liboral

stand by broad Amorioan party
principles nnd accept the
verdict of tho people, not who is

Honolulu declare their principles
and be held to those principles,

liniVKY AND NHUTHAI.irY.
The neutrality night tnnro still
haunts tho official organ. Tbo
publio is informed for the first
time that the various declarations
of neutrality wore what forced
Dewey into making a hero of him
self e.ud demonstrating his capa
bilities as n naval fighter. The
international neutrality law "was
tho immodiate causo of Dewoy'e
attack upon, nnd victory over, the
Spanish fleet at Manila"
"llo was at once, forced to mako a
port and supply station for his
ships or lly tho homo pennnnt."
What remnrkablo porvorsiou of
neutrality history will tho official
organ nest Bpring ou tho publio ?
It now attempts to mako nut that
Dewey would have hung around
Hongkong or somo other Asiatic
port if the declaration of neutrali
ty had not forcol him got out. If
Hih declaration of neutrality cut
such a remarkable and "immediate
cause" figure, why didn't Dewey
get out and go homo
when war as far back as early
March became a foregono
conclusion ? Why was tho Balti
more sout to strengthen his fleet
"dftVen thousand miles from
homo ? " Why wns tho order sent
to Dowoy from Washington to at
tack, aud cnpluro or destroy tho
Spanish fleot in 1'hillippino waters,
immediately upon tho recoipt of
news or the declaration of war ?
Dewoy had no more choice in
the attack on tho Philippines than
did Cervera in leaving, Santiago
harbor. While tho ordors Dewey
received woro doubtless ontirely
satisfactory to him, overy point in
history pIiowb that tho plnn for
Amorican naval operations in Asi
atic waters was, upon tho declara
tion of war, to immediately as
sume tho offensive, to proceed to
Manila aud eithor do or bo done.
The, United States had plenty of
time to order Dowoy homo, if the
officials stood in such mortal ter
ra r of what his position would be
upou the declaration of war. De
clarations of neutrality did not
catch them unawares or change
their plans of action. The glory
of Dewey's victory is not that ho
obeyed orders immediotely upon
the declaration of war. It is found
in his preparodnoss to act when
war did como, nnd his superior
strategy in attacking tho enomy.
Dewey's business was to smash the
Spanish fleet boforo it had n
cliauco to got boyond the con
fines of Philippine watorB and he
did it. When international law
come down upon Dewey he was
prepared to wink tho othor eyo
nnd show the neutral nations that
he had no desire to stay in thoir

NEW POLITICS IN JAPAN

Tho politicnl complextion of tho

by tho people at large, many of
Japan's brightest statesmen boiug

for although it was declared to bo

the Oriont aould not comprehend
how men of deep convictions could
nscend to tho highest seats of gov

that thoso convictions wero to bo
held in strict nboyauce, and there
wero many who wero ready
to dcclaro in their des
pair of comprehending the
situntion, that politics was a
snare and a delusion. Moantimo

with tho Marquis Yamngata at
its head as Premier of tho empire,
