MONDAY, JAN. 23, 1899.
A nation mournB tho loss of Con
gressman Nelscm Dingley. Thoio
w.is u uinn -vboip exemplary pri
vnto nnd public lifo will always
stand na n phiuiug mark on the
pages of United Stiites history. Ho
was true to liiniBclf, true to tho
principles of honest American
manhood, hence, it followed as
night follows day that be was over
found faithful to tbo trust placed
in him by the people of his state
and tho people of tho nntiou.
Tho Becret of Mr. Diugley's suc
cess was hard woik and honesty.
In pergonal appearance and man
ner bo was not u man who would
bo picked out as a successful poli
tician. Not physically strong and
with rather "frigid" mannerisms,
moro'tban one person has wonder
ed how he held such a high place
among the people of his State, but
they had only to go to tho people
of his district and rind that the
rich and poor, high and low had
proved Nelson Dingley to bo "an
honest mnn and an indefatigable
worker." This was tbo record on
which he was rnpeatedlv returned
to Congress and which gave him
tho importaut positions in Amer
ican national life.
It is well known that when
Dingley was framing the tariff
measure, bo was dojged incossant
ly by tho emissaries of tho Sugar
Trust. Ho listened to their argu
ments but was firm and honest in
tho assertion of his position that
their schemes to rob the people
did not have his approval and
should not bo furthered through
bis instrumentality. This was
simply oua of many instances in
this man's career whore bo show
ed that tbo trust placed in him by
tho people was a priceless jewel
that could not bo bought and that
tho most powerful combinations
of capital and special commercial
interests could not swerve him
from tho pathway of loyalty to the
citizens as a whole.
KXTKNBION OK AMERICAN LAWS,
Tho pessimistic view which the
official organ takes of Hawaii's
prospects in CongroBs, and possi
bility of Hawaii being oloBsod un
der tho probable colonial policy
again brings into prominence the
short sighted policy of the gove-
Not many months ago the organ
of the government was patting
the Chamber of Commerce and
Plaute'rs Association on tho back
for petitioning thecommisBionfora
delay in the extension of Amer
ican shipping and tariff laws to
Hawaii. Now it is raising the fear
ful cry that legislative delay in
Washington is full of dangers and
the firdt thing Hawaii knows it
will be a colony of the United
States with duties charged upon
its products entering the United
When tho memorials of the
Chamber oE Commerce wore first
made public, tho Bulletin char
acterized tho requests made for
delays as unfortunato. Tho situ
ation in Wn-ihiugton shows the
Bulletin was right.
Tho otUcial organ has now sud
denly awaked to the realization
that tho nllicial campaign to delay
legislation in Washington is laud
ing Hawaii between tho devil and
tho deep set. if American laws
nra extended speedily as thoy
should be, the official aggregation
will Io3o their jobs; if legislation
is dolayed Hawaii stands a ohanco
of being classed as an outsider and
put on tho same commercial and
political footing as Porto Itico and
tho Philippinos. This campaign
for delay was and is unless it
Ihb suddenly been abandouod
an exhibition of the Simon pure
Belfidhness of the official ring. If
thoro had heou an honost desire to
follow Amorican precodeuts and
receive annexation in the liberal
spirit in which it was oxtenuod by
the Americau people, the otlicials
would havo mado noto of tbo fact
that in annexing new territory the
United States has always boen
prompt to oxtend American' laws
ti that territory.
Alaska was purchased by
treaty March 30, 18G7; on
July 1G, 18G8, a bill passed the
House oxteuding shipping and
tariff laws to Alaska ind estab
lishing collection districts; on
July 25, 18G3 tho bill passed tho
Sen ato and on July 27 it became a
law. Texas wbb annexed by joint
resolution March 1, 1815, and
Dec. 29, 1845, American laws were
extended over that now territory.
Thus it will bo seen that tho
Hawaiian government has labored
for a delay in legislation that has
never happened in any torritory
taken by the United States. It
has sought to up;ot precedents,
has played direotly into tho hands
of its enemy tho beet sugar men,
and now fearing tho result) of its
saltish and narrow minded work
makes pessimistic flings at the
integrity of tho United States
Congress. When tho tirao arrived
for American laws to bo extended
promptly as in tho case of Alaska
and Texas, tho United States
found this government looking
around for some means of delay.
In its attempt to throw the res
ponsibility for tho possibility of
delay upon United States Con
gressmen unduly influenced by
tho beet sugar producers, the offi
cial organ forecasts a dark and
formidable outlook that is unwar
ranted and demonstrates a lack of
confidence in tho acts and good
will of President McKinley. Had
tho administration contomplated a
colonial government for Hawaii,
It would never have placed tho
Hawaiian territorial bill before
Congress, and having given this
administration endorsement of tbo
territorial plan, tho chances are
that tho President would veto a
Wo do not believe that tbero is
just causo for the business men to
quake with fear over the probabi
lities of Hawaii being held off as
a colony, but bollovo thoy will do
well to withdraw any and all op
position to the administration
policy, and not stand in with the
boet sugar men--which practi
cally though porbaps not inten
tionally is now boing dono in ap
position to the Amorican policy
outlined by McKinley through
the report of the Commission.
