Hawaii's socccbh with tho first
Omaha Exposition ought to mtko
our busines men liberal with tho
now and larger Bchomo uow pre
sented. A Hath, Mo., telegram, intima
ting that Special Agent Sew nil
had returned from Washington
fooling comfortably well and pub
lished by the official organ is fol
lowed by moro anti-Asiatic labor
viowfl from tho Government. Tuo
intimation mayor may not betruo,
but it is eafo for tlio government
to bank on tho fuct that tho Spo-
oitl Ageut hus given no interviews
to any newspapers rolativo to the
Govornorebip or any otber private
or official busineds. Those somer
saults in government circles overy
time it gets a scare from Wash-j
ington aro getting tiresomo to the
TIM It FOn ACTION.
Whethor tbo chango of oath re
quired of electors of the Republio
of Hawaii was a deliberate attempt
to reduce the registration of voters
for tho coming election or not, the
all powerful Executivo could not
lmo made a moro effective move
to reduce tbo number of voters in
the final election of tho Republic.
By what law, ruling, precedent or
sonsiblo reason tho government
abould require a man, who has
already taken tho oath to tho Bo
public, to again take a new oath that
includes allegiance to the United
States is a matter Unit the people
cannot understand and tho govern
ment does not vouchsafe any ex
planation. Like a great many
things tho Executivo is responsi
ble for "it's dono and what
aro you going to do about it?"
The only suggestion given is
that tho oflicials of Hawaii had to
tako an oath to tho United Statoj,
consequently tho electors should
do tho same. Bo Oie President of
the United States has to tako an
oitb, but the men who elect him
a'e not lequirod to 6wear fealty
unless they havo previously boon
ThojNowlands Resolutions pro
vides that our municipal laws
shall continue without change
oxcept as may bo ordered
by tho Prosidout. Tbo government
Ins received no order from the
President relating to our local
olectinn, aud tho oflicials of Ha
waii aio usurping their powers by
demanding that mon who fulfilled
the tequirnments of (ho Hawaiian
constitution previous to annexa
tion shall tako an additional oath
or affirmation at this pariod of tbo
game. Did Presidont McKinloy
confer upon looal officials tho
right to disfranchise the voters
uudor tho Republic of Hawaii?
If so let it be mado kuown. At
all ovduts thU ii tho authority
the offioials of this torritory have
taken upon themselves.
For ovor a mouth the registra
tion boards havo been iti session
registering voters at tho rato of
about ouo a duy. Tho people re
fuo to sanction by thought or
action tho imperious action of tl e
Executive. With the time fast
approaohing whon tho lists will
bo closed it is about timo tho
2 utive teoognized the foolish
i ji of its position or failing in
ibis for tho peoplo to make an
appeal direct to Washington and
havo t io matter settled by tho
authorities of tho national govern
ment. Tho drastic pigheaded ness
of LUwa'i's Executive could not
be moro comploto if they were
vatsnld of the Cznr of Russia in
stead of odicialH under a nation of,
by and for tho people.
HAWAII' i.sciu:vhi:u uipohts.
Furmor Consul General Hay
wood has tokon direct issuo with
tho special agent of tho SUte De
partment in tbo mattor of the iu-
creaso in imports to Hawaii jatt
following annoxation. Newspaper
reports credited the spocial agont
with slating that Hawaiian mer
chants woro importing largely
from foreign countries in ordor to
escapo the duties of tho American
tariff schedule. Mr. Haywood in
liia report to the department in
timates that such statements are
not fonndod on fact.
It seems hardly necessary to
reopen this question. If tho object
wa9 to refuto definito cbargos
mado regarding imports into Ha
waii, a moro comploto digest of
Custom Houbo returns is derauud
od than is published in tho ad
vauco consular sheets of April 18.
Two tables aro given, ono showing
tho value of tho total imports for
tho last seven years and tho in-
creaso for each year, tho other
showing iho imports for tho year
1898 from different countries and
tho increased value of importa
tions from each nation. For tho
years 1890, '97 and '98 tho percen
tage of incroasc in our total im
ports has been 25, 23, and 31 per
cont respectively. Tho tablo do
voted to tho valuo of imports in
1898 from tho countries uamod
shows that imports from
tho United States increased 20.G per
cent; tho value of imports from
Great Britain increased approxi
mately 48 per cont,
from Gormany 82 per
cent, from the British Colonios
1G5 per cont, from China 26 per
cent, from Japan 21 per cent and
from Franco 40 per cont. From
this tablo of figures it appears
that from each of tho leading
mercantile nations the percent
age of increased importations wus
higher thun the iucioaBo credited
tho United States.
It might well bo reason
able to expect a larger
importation, yet it is nsoless for
an esteemed contemporary to
assert on tho basis of this report
that thore baa not boen a notable
increaso in the imports from
countries othor than tho United
StateB during tho year 1898.
Neither is it surprising that such
has boen tho case; there is no law
to prevent a merchant buying in
tho market whero ho can roalizo
tho most for his money. Whore
business begins sontimont stops
in evory business community of
tbo world. It is, on tho other
hand, tho business of tho United
States authorities to gain all the
revonuo required by American
customs laws. This prinoi-
plo was recognized by tho
Commission when it inserted a
clauso in tho torritorial bill that
foreign goods brought to Hawaii
should, if sent to the United
States, pay the samo duties as all
other foreign goods.
What merchants have or havo
not imported largely from foreign
countries is a mattor of Bmall
moment. If a merchant has an
increaBod domaud for British,
Germauy, French, Chinese or
Japanese goods,, he has a right to
supply it if possiblo. Amorican
officials, howevor, cannot raako
light of tbo fact that fuilura to ox-
toud tariff laws to Hawaii is from
tbo national business standpoint
a loss to tho American people ex
cepting thti residents of Hawaii.

I'ortrot About Their Oath.
Whilo different men woro being
oxaminrd this morning for a jury
to try tho Kahuku Japaneso two
men were found who said they had
not taken the oath to support tho
Bopublio of Hawaii. Tbore was
somo doubt as to this in the
minds of tho prosecuting officers
bo tho books were referred to. It
was found that both men had taken
tho oath. They insist that thoy
forgot all about having dono this.
