Special Agent Bewail:
"JCes, it is truo that the peoplo
of tho Hawaiian Islands nrn nn.
posed to having their country
treated as a colony by tho United
States. Thoy want to bo given a
territorial form of rrnvnrnmnnt
the samo as exists here in tho caso
of New Mexico and Arizona. I
am heartily in sympathy with
them in that matter.
Tho peoplo of tho islands aro
intelligent and capablo of self
govorument, as everybody knows.
They oxpect, and should receive,
liberal treatment at tho hands of
tho Fodoral Government. For
my own part, I do not think tho
authorities at Washington have
ever seriously considered treating
tho islands as a colony. I do not
think President MoKinlnv fnvnra
such a proposition. Suoh a course
wouia oe a sorious blunder."
